Arbitrary Cinema: The Laughing Woman (1969)

4 August 2016 4:01 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Join me in the confines of my house on the hill, where every week I’ll be sharing with you a seemingly random review of a movie that’s come across my horror-nerd radar in the middle of the night. So come join my on the couch. It may give you some insight into the way our referential minds connect films, it may introduce you to something you never knew existed, or it may give you a rash that requires a 7-day ointment treatment.  Or, maybe none of that matters in the end–because this is Arbitrary Cinema..

 

The Laughing Woman (1969)

 

It’s no secret that the horror film is often accused of being misogynistic. There are examples in nearly every sub-genre that certainly can validate that argument. The scantily-clad women murdered at the gloved hands of a killer in Giallos, the big breasted nympho victims of the Slashers, the »

NYC Weekend Watch: ‘The Puppetmaster,’ David Bordwell, ‘The King of Comedy’ & More

23 June 2016 10:03 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since any New York cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

Museum of Modern Art

The Mark Lee Ping-Bing retro has its last weekend, with titles including Hou Hsiao-hsien‘s Dust in the Wind and his rarely screened The Puppetmaster.

Alejandro Jodorowsky to receive Locarno honour

20 June 2016 4:13 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Cult filmmaker to appear in conversation at film festival.

Chilean filmmaker and artist Alejandro Jodorowsky is to be awarded with a Pardo d’onore at the 69th Locarno Film Festival (Aug 3-13).

As well as screening a selection of his films and the award ceremony on the Piazza Grande, Jodorowsky will also participate in a conversation open to all festival-goers.

As son of Russian immigrants exiled in Chile, Jodorowsky began his artistic career as a puppeteer, poet and theater director. At 23, he moved to France and joined Marcel Marceau’s mime troupe, and five years later founded - alongside Roland Topor and Fernando Arrabal - the performance art movement Panique, which aimed to counter the mainstreaming of surrealism.

Jodorowsky subsequently moved to Mexico, where, over the next 17 years, he created avant-garde theater de Mexico, and directed Fando And Lis (1968), El Topo (1970), The Holy Mountain (1973) and Santa Sangre (1989), films which made him a cult filmmaker around the world »

Rome — Influential multihyphenate Alejandro Jodorowsky, whose works include quintessential 1970 midnight movie “El Topo,” fantasy film “The Holy Mountain,” and more recently “The Dance of Reality,” will be honored by the Locarno Film Festival with its Pardo d’onore Swisscom lifetime achievement award.

The Chilean-born film and stage director, comic book writer, poet and puppeteer, who is 87, is expected to attend the Swiss fest and hold a public onstage conversation on Aug. 12.

Locarno, which is dedicated to indie and cutting-edge fare, runs Aug. 3-13. The fest will announce its lineup on July 13.

A son of Russian immigrants exiled to Chile, Jodorowsky began his artistic career as a puppeteer, poet and theater director.  He moved to France when he was 23 and joined Marcel Marceau’s mime troupe.

He subsequently moved to Mexico where “he revolutionized the arts world, creating the avant-garde Theater de Mexico,” according to a Locarno statement.

Aiming for the top by Anne-Katrin Titze

Jimmy Chin on Mount Meru Photo: Renan Ozturk

In Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin's Oscar shortlisted Best Documentary Film nominee Meru, three of the world’s most accomplished mountain climbers, Conrad Anker, Renan Ozturk and Chin himself, attempt to conquer nature, outward and inward, to reach the Shark’s Fin on Mount Meru, the heretofore impossible peak in the Himalayas. The footage is breathtaking, the obstacles seem insurmountable, the trust and friendship between them has to be complete and you will find yourself cheering them on.

Jimmy Chin: "I owe so much to Conrad …" Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

The Arnold Fanck films with Luis Trenker and Leni Riefenstahl The Holy Mountain (Der Heilige Berg) and The Great Leap (Der Grosse Sprung) and Storm Over Mont Blanc (Stürme Über Dem Mont Blanc) with Riefenstahl and Sepp Rist came to mind as I spoke with Jimmy Chin.

Notebook's 8th Writers Poll: Fantasy Double Features of 2015

4 January 2016 6:41 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

How would you program this year's newest, most interesting films into double features with movies of the past you saw in 2015?Looking back over the year at what films moved and impressed us, it is clear that watching old films is a crucial part of making new films meaningful. Thus, the annual tradition of our end of year poll, which calls upon our writers to pick both a new and an old film: they were challenged to choose a new film they saw in 2015—in theatres or at a festival—and creatively pair it with an old film they also saw in 2015 to create a unique double feature.All the contributors were given the option to write some text explaining their 2015 fantasy double feature. What's more, each writer was given the option to list more pairings, with or without explanation, as further imaginative film programming we'd be lucky to catch »
