Andrew Dominik’s 10 Favorite Films

27 May 2016 11:40 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Across his three features this century, Andrew Dominik has explored masculine ideals (and the lack thereof) with an uncompromising vision. While earning the most acclaim for his stunning western The Assassination of Jesse James By the Coward Robert Ford, his follow-up Killing Them Softly is also distinctive in its laser-focused fury, getting the impressive distinction of an “F” CinemaScore to cement it as something truly special. His long-gestating next feature, Blonde, is hopefully still happening (the last we heard, Netflix may back it and shooting could begin as early as this year), but as we wait for confirmation, today we’re looking at his favorite films of all-time.

Courtesy of his Sight & Sound ballot, it’s a primarily American-focused line-up with classics from Francis Ford Coppola, Martin Scorsese, Billy Wilder, and David Lynch (x2). Perhaps most interesting is his favorite Alfred Hitchcock film, one of the man’s last five features: Marnie, »

Cary Fukunaga Confirmed To Be In Talks For HBO’s Napoleon

20 May 2016 1:05 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A few days ago, we reported on a rumor that True Detective’s Cary Fukunaga might be directing Stanley Kubrick’s dream project Napoleon for HBO. Now we have official confirmation that Fukunaga is definitely in talks for the show, with Steven Spielberg producing.

Napoleon was a dream production for Stanley Kubrick, who spent years working on and researching it, only to never have it realized. Steven Spielberg has been lending a hand to the project as a producer, but there were never any rumors that he might step in to direct. Baz Luhrmann was attached to the production for awhile, but has since exited. Now, it appears that Fukunaga is likely to take his place.

Fukunaga is perfectly suited for a production of Napoleon – he’s proven his mettle with the first season of True Detective for HBO, and so it’s not surprising that he would want to »

Cannes Film Review: ‘Café Society’

11 May 2016 6:15 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Going into a new Woody Allen film, there’s always the hope that it’s going to be major, like “Blue Jasmine,” and not one of his trifles, like the Allen movies that have opened the Cannes Film Festival in recent years (“Hollywood Ending,” “Midnight in Paris”). At this point, however, his track record vastly favors the probability that it’s going to be a trifle, at which point the question then becomes: Will it be one of his good ones — that is, one of those Allen fables that really sings? “Café Society,” starring Jesse Eisenberg as a sweetly naïve Bronx nebbish who journeys to Hollywood in the 1930s to seek his fortune, has been made with all the verve and high-style panache and star magnetism of a small-scale Allen gem. Yet the film, watchable as it is, never quite overcomes the sense that it’s a lavish diagram working »

The 80 Best-Directed Films, According to the Directors Guild of America

3 May 2016 6:59 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With editors and cinematographers chiming in on the best examples of their craft in cinema history, it’s now time for directors to have a say. To celebrate the 80th anniversary of the Directors Guild of America, they’ve conducted a poll for their members when it comes to the 80 greatest directorial achievements in feature films since the organization’s founding in 1936. With 2,189 members participating, the top pick went to Francis Ford Coppola for The Godfather, one of three films from the director making the top 10.

Even with films from nonmembers being eligible, the male-dominated, America-centric choices are a bit shameful (Kathryn Bigelow is the only female director on the list, and the first foreign film doesn’t show up until number 26), but not necessarily surprising when one looks at the make-up of its membership. As with any list, there’s bound to be disagreements (Birdman besting The Bicycle Thief, »

Scott Reviews The Rainer Werner Fassbinder Collection [Arrow Video Blu-ray Review]

28 April 2016 4:08 PM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

It’s no real secret that we’re reaching a tipping point with home video. Streaming is proving a better and better option for the casual consumer every day, and even the cinephile dollar, which has rather successfully driven home video decisions for the past couple of years, has such services as Hulu, Fandor, Mubi, and – soon – FilmStruck vying for their attention. Physical distributors have subsequently doubled down on their most successful and acclaimed models. Criterion is going big on new-to-disc, big international titles with new restorations (Brighter Summer Day, Paris Belongs to Us, A Touch of Zen) and lavish new editions of American classics (The New World, Dr. Strangelove). Kino is investing in silent classics (Fantomas, The Phantom of the Opera, Diary of a Lost Girl) while diversifying to include more American studio titles. Masters of Cinema is going into deep specialty stuff with an Early Murnau box and Edvard Munch. »

Watch: Celebrate the Greatest Cinematography of All-Time With New Video Essay

28 April 2016 12:40 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, then there will never be a definitive list of the greatest cinematography, but for our money, one of the finest polls has been recently conducted on the matter. Our friend Scout Tafoya polled over 60 critics on Fandor, including some of us here, and the results can be found in a fantastic video essay below. Rather than the various wordless supercuts that crowd Vimeo, Tafoya wrestles with his thoughts on cinematography as we see the beautiful images overlaid from the top 12 choices.

“I’ve been thinking of the world cinematographically since high school,” Scout says. “Sometime around tenth grade I started looking out windows, at crowds of my peers, at the girls I had crushes on, and imagining the best way to film them. Lowlight, mini-dv or 35mm? Curious and washed out like the way Emmanuel Lubezki shot Y Tu Mamá También, »

Steven Berkoff to reprise theatre roles on film

27 April 2016 5:19 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The actor will star in feature film versions of his shows Shakespeare’s Villains and Tell Tale Heart.

Actor and playwright Steven Berkoff, best known for villainous screen roles in Octopussy and A Clockwork Orange, is set to reprise two of his most successful theatre productions on film.

Shakespeare’s Heroes & Villains and Tell Tale Heart, both written by Berkoff, will be co-produced by Red Rock Entertainment (That Good Night) and Ck Films with Stephen Cookson (My Angel) directing. Both are currently in development.

Shakespeare’s Heroes & Villains will be adapted from the Berkoff-penned stage production Shakespeare’s Villains. The one-man play, which had its first run at London’s Theatre Royal in 1998, explores and analyses some of the Bard’s most villainous characters, including Macbeth, Iago, Richard III and Coriolanus.

The film production ties in with celebrations of the 400th anniversary of the death of Shakespeare, which has also seen the British Council export 18 of the Bard »

People Review: Where in the World Is Outlander's Heroine for Season 2? Try Versailles

9 April 2016 12:20 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

We aren't too far into season 2 of Starz' woozily passionate time-travel fantasy Outlander when Claire Randall Fraser (Caitriona Balfe) receives a bit of information so jolting, so disturbing in its implications, she probably wishes she were doing anything other than swirling, swishing and swashing her way through the elaborate frivolity and beauty of 18th-century Versailles. This, even though she looks as if she'd spent most of her life in the 20th century in anticipation of dressing as though she were in [Dangerous Liaisons.] If anything, poor Claire probably wishes she could take a high, even swing and knock the periwig off the »

Watch: Stanley Kubrick, Across the Color Spectrum

6 April 2016 7:25 PM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

In 2014 we posted Rishi Kaneria’s supercut on Stanley Kubrick’s love of the color red. Now, inspired by that video, Marc Anthony Figueras has created his own video, this time surveying the director’s use of color all across the color spectrum. Films referenced: 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, Barry Lyndon, The Shining, Full Metal Jacket, Eyes Wide Shut. And, for those who’d like to simply skip to their favorite hue, here are the chapter markings: Red- 0:07 Blue- 1:30 Yellow- 2:12 Purple- 2:42 Pink- 2:51 Orange- 2:59 Green- 3:15 Black & White- 3:45 »

Watch: Discover Stanley Kubrick's Dazzling Use Of Color In This Supercut

6 April 2016 1:50 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There may never be a more precise filmmaker than Stanley Kubrick. Quite possibly the most meticulous and, arguably, most influential director in cinema, there are no happy accidents or mistakes in his films. Each comes with multitudes of planning, staging, thinking and analyzing, and his themes of paranoia can sometimes subsequently drive people mad — depending on how you read the documentary “Room 237.” And among the most distinct and impressionable details in Kubrick’s work come from his use of color, as made evident by Vimeo user Marc Anthony Figueras’ supercut “Kubrick in Color.” Read More: Watch: 9-Minute Video Essay Explores How Stanley Kubrick Observes Humanity In His Films Vividly displaying the British filmmaker’s singular vision through his use of red, blue, yellow, orange, green and black & white, namely in “2001: A Space Odyssey,” “The Shining,” “Full Metal Jacket,” and “Eyes Wide Shut,” as well as “Barry Lyndon” and »

The Alchemist Cookbook D.P Adam J. Minnick on lensing the Hermit in the Woods

25 March 2016 8:32 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

If you've had the privilege to see a film lensed by D.P Adam J. Minnick, you'd have recognized an eye disciplined by the story it's telling rather than by personal inclinations or some sybaritic style that steals from the story. Buzzard, was shot super raw and cold on a 5D, The Alchemist Cookbook was shot formally composed with a warm palllete on an Alexa, and Actor Martinez (Us Premiering this April at Tribeca) was shot with Altman inspired slow zooms on a Red Epic Dragon. The aesthetic decisions and stories speak for his adaptability and understanding of the form. And, his latest release, The Alchemist Cookbook, which hit SXSW hard when it world premiered, has audiences, critics, and filmmakers predominately sitting on the 'loved it' side of its divisive disposition. 

We were fortunate to talk with the cinematographer on how the hell the team pulled it off.

The Alchemist Cookbook Director Of Photography Adam J. Minnick on lensing the Hermit in the Woods

Could you give us a general overview of your working relationship with Joel? 

Joel and I are first and foremost friends...he's always been one of my closest. We've been making music, watching films and making little movies together starting in high school. He and I were really the only two buddies in our tight group that pursued visual arts of any sort through college and beyond, so it made sense that one day we could ultimately work together on a professional level, too. There's a trust that I can't really put into words, but we know that it's there. The Alchemist Cookbook was a new endeavor into a different filmmaking experience for both of us, and his trust in me as an image maker was very clear from the beginning. As far as collaborative art goes, I've never been more aligned with anyone, so I consider myself very fortunate »

John Michael Mcdonagh declares 'War On Everyone'

22 March 2016 10:55 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The Guard and Calvary were two of my favorite films to release in their respective years. Both reel with a jet black sense of humor and western style morality play where various shades of grey face off in cessation. They also happen to be gorgeous, shot by Larry Smith (Gaffer/Chief electrician on Barry Lyndon/The Shining turned Only God Forgives/Bronson D.P) and composed in sickening symmetry. In short, I was ecstastic to meet the man behind it all, and his down to earth, silly, demeanor, ended up putting me at ease. John Michael McDonagh, talks about his third and bleakest feature film: War On Everyone

Did anything, such as something in the media, provoke the start of War On Everyone

There was no sort of big initializing point really. I guess having done The Guard with one kind of obnoxious cop, [that] I wanted to double down on that a little bit. »

NYC Weekend Watch: Ib Technicolor, Stan Brakhage, Josef von Sternberg & More

17 March 2016 6:38 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.


Ib Technicolor prints of Hatari!, Singin’ in the Rain, and Vertigo screen this Saturday.

As part of the “Metrograph A-z” series, Cat People and The Cassandra Cat play this Friday. Barry Lyndon also plays Friday, as well as Sunday — along with Scorsese‘s The Age of Innocence.

A new print of Craig’s Wife screens this Sunday. »

Sir Ken Adam obituary

11 March 2016 9:52 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Production designer of extravagant sets and gadgetry for the James Bond films

A good film production designer must be an architect, engineer, painter, decorator, draughtsman and visionary. Sir Ken Adam, who has died aged 95, was all of these and more. He had a knowledge of the arts in general, which he was able to use to recreate the scrupulously researched historical period of a movie, exemplified by his two Academy Awards for best art direction, both set in the 18th century: Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon (1975), inspired by the English landscape and portrait paintings of the period, and Nicholas Hytner’s The Madness of King George (1994).

It was Adam’s designs for seven James Bond movies, however, that made him probably the only production designer whose name and work are widely known. He provided the visual template for the 007 franchise in Dr No (1962), the first in the enduring action-adventure series. »

Sir Ken Adam, Oscar-winning Production Designer, Dead At Age 95

11 March 2016 9:31 AM, PST | | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

Cinema Retro mourns the loss of Sir Ken Adam, the ingenious, Oscar-winning production designer who has passed away at age 95. Adam's work helped redefine films in terms of the elaborate and creative designs he invented, particularly for the James Bond franchise. Adam's work on the first 007 film, "Dr. No" in 1962 was deemed to be nothing less than remarkable, considering that the entire film was shot on a relatively low budget of just over $1 million. His exotic designs so impressed Stanley Kubrick that he hired Adam as production designer on his 1964 classic "Dr. Strangelove." For that film, Adam created the now legendary "War Room" set which many people believe actually exists at the Pentagon. In fact when Ronald Reagan was inaugurated as President in 1981 he asked to see the War Room, only to be told that it was a fictional creation. Reagan acknowledged that he had been intrigued »

James Bond, 'Dr. Strangelove' designer Sir Ken Adam dies aged 95

11 March 2016 3:14 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Two-time Oscar winner Adam was the first production designer to receive a knighthood.

Sir Ken Adam, the two-time Oscar winning production designer known for his work on James Bond films of the 1960s and 70s, died Thursday [10 March] at his home in London.

In addition to his work on Bond films including Goldfinger, The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker, Adam was highly regarded for his iconic production design in Stanley Kubrick’s Dr. Strangelove. Director Steven Spielberg described the film’s ‘War Room’ as the best film set ever built.

He was also known for designing the original car for 1968 musical Chitty Chitty Bang Bang [pictured below].

Adam won his first Oscar in 1976 for his work on Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon, and his second in 1995 for Nicholas Hytner’s The Madness Of King George. He received three additional nominations for Around The World In 80 Days, The Spy Who Loved Me, and Addams Family Values.
