Tatum happily opened up to the audience, sharing details about his “chicken legs” and what steps were necessary to prevent his Roman armor from burning his manhood — a detail his sister, »

Errol Morris: The Hollywood Interview

Errol Morris Digs The Dirt With Tabloid

By Alex Simon

When Errol Morris’ documentary The Thin Blue Line hit movie screens in 1988, it helped jump-start the rather tired genre back to life again. After a renaissance of the documentary film in the 1960s through the early ‘70s from the likes of The Maysles Brothers (Gimme Shelter, Grey Gardens), D.A. Pennebaker (Don’t Look Back), and Robert Drew (Crisis, Primary), the documentary film seemed relegated to late night spots on local PBS affiliates, narrated by boozy British actors in the downslide of their careers. Morris’ tale of Randall Adams, a man not only wrongly jailed for murdering a Dallas cop in the late ‘70s, but convicted due to the testimony of the man who actually did it, was an intoxicating blend of first-person realism, film noir detective story, and very real moral outrage. »

Albert Maysles Takes a Bow in Provincetown

In conversation with Annie Sundberg ("Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work"), legendary documentarian Albert Maysles ("Grey Gardens," "Gimme Shelter," "Salesman") detailed his filmmaking process at the Provincetown Int'l Film Festival Saturday, receiving the fest's Career Achievement Award. Speaking of his subjects, he said, "There's good in everybody, let the truth tell it all." "On getting people to open up: "People would much rather disclose than keep a secret." Maysles went »

Albert Maysles, the godfather of documentaries, tells Danny Leigh the secret of his success

Albert Maysles seems to have just woken up. His breakfast sits untouched, his crumpled black shirt is undone, and he's wearing odd socks, one grey, one green. Outside his hotel room, the attendees of the Sheffield documentary festival are in the process of paying tribute to this legendary documentary-maker, with screenings, masterclasses – and, last night, a party that reportedly found him drinking shots until 4am. Not bad for an 84-year-old.

Asked what he thinks of such reverence, he suddenly snaps into focus. "It can take surprising forms," he smiles, eyes fixed on mine through black-framed glasses. "When I got there last night, there were two dozen people with their arms raised, saluting, like a guard of honour. That was nice. But surprising."

Ever since he set out to make a film about Soviet mental hospitals in the 1950s, »

At 84, veteran documentary filmmaker Albert Maysles ("Grey Gardens," "Gimme Shelter") has lost none of his spark.

This week's new film events

3 June 2011 4:10 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Good Bad Movie Club, London

Going from bad to worse can only be a good thing in the world of crap movie appreciation, and the establishment that brought you Tommy Wiseau's The Room and Troll 2 has scraped even deeper to bring you a season of bottom-of-the-late-80s-barrel gems. First off is the imaginatively demented Killer Klowns From Outer Space, in which alien clowns set balloon dogs, custard pies and mutant popcorn on Earthlings – expect fancy dress and free candy floss. Other godawful classics include the cheap and disgusting Garbage Pail Kids Movie, the Et-with-product-placement tale Mac And Me, and Dolph Lundgren's pec-flexingly camp fantasy Masters Of The Universe.

Prince Charles, WC2, Sat to 10 Sep

Fantastic Films Weekend, Bradford

It's mostly retro fare for this cult festival, which is especially good news for fans of Hammer/Amicus horror – a legion to whom the name Peter Sasdy will be legend. »

Cannes 2011. Critics' Week

21 May 2011 1:56 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Updated through 5/21 — with awards announcements.

As noted last week, with support from the 4+1 Film Festival, we're celebrating the 50th anniversary of Critics' Week with a free retrospective of some of the greatest films screened over the past 50 editions. What follows is a roundup of what the critics are saying about the films screening this year.

"Jonathan Caouette's film Tarnation — created for $300 (£185) on his iMac out of old Super 8 videos and family photos — created a stir at Cannes in 2004 for its original visual language," begins Charlotte Higgins in the Guardian. "In his latest he returns to Tarnation's material: his rich but intensely difficult family life. At the heart of Walk Away Renée is a road trip he takes with his mother, Renée, from Houston to New York State, as he helps her transfer from one assisted-living facility to another. Renée, who received electric shock therapy from the age »

26 Criterion Collection Films Will Expire From Netflix Watch Instantly On May 26th

14 May 2011 8:22 PM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

Well we all knew this would happen. Back in February, when Criterion announced their epic digital streaming partnership with Hulu, they also quietly revealed that their streaming options on Netflix would be coming to an end over the course of the next year. While I haven’t been paying close attention to the Criterion Collection films that have been expiring since that announcement was made, I thought it would be helpful to all of you loyal Netflix subscribers to know that in about twelve days, 26 titles will be expiring on the 26th of May, 2011.

I’ve gone and linked to all of the titles below, so you can click on the cover art or the text, and be taken to their corresponding Netflix pages. While this isn’t everything that Criterion has to offer on Netflix, it is a nice chunk of really important films. If you don’t currently have a Netflix subscription, »

It’s the time again, my friends. When I go through Hulu’s Criterion page and give you what’s new, what’s exciting and what might be a hint at a future release within the collection. There’s even a ton of new supplemental material from various films that are worth getting into. If you like this series of article, please sign up for your own Hulu Plus account. Every little bit counts and is much appreciated.

Let’s just get right to it then. Remember, all the links will be included with each listing. We make it as easy as possible for all of you. First up is a film that isn’t in the collection but I can easily see it being welcomed with open arms.

Doc Talk: What's the Most Important Ethical Concern for Documentary Today?

30 March 2011 2:30 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Documentaries, Columns, Cinematical

What is the biggest ethical concern for documentary today? Yes, it's a Big question. But it's worth trying to answer even if it's not easy to do so. Ethics are such a big deal in documentary discourse, probably the toughest topic to wrap our heads around, or come to many conclusions about. Panels and lectures on documentary ethics can be found at nearly every film festival and conference, and sometimes they occur at more random times and places, too. And none of these discussions ever finish with definite resolutions.

Last week I attended one of these irregular events, one hosted by The New York Film/Video Council and titled "Crossing the Line? A conversation on ethics and documentary film." P.O.V.'s Yance Ford moderated the talk, which featured filmmakers Albert Maysles ('Grey Gardens'), Tia Lessin ('Trouble the Water'), Stephanie Wang-Breal ('I Love You, »

Obituary: Saluting Richard Leacock, 1921-2011

26 March 2011 2:51 PM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Richard Leacock, 1921-2011

The noted filmmaker Richard Leacock, best known as one of the pioneers of the “cinema verite”-style of documentary filmmaking–a more direct, realistic approach to the form–died on March 23. He was 89-years-old.

Though he directed some 20-plus feature films and shorts (including 1984’s Lulu in Berlin, a documentary on actress Louise Brooks, and the popular 1963 short Happy Mother’s Day about a woman who gives birth to quintuplets), Leacock is best known to DiscDish as the cinematographer of some of finest documentaries of the 1960s and 1970s, many of which he collaborated on with such well-known colleagues as D.A. Pennebaker (The War Room) and Albert & David Maysles (Grey Gardens).

Here’s a group of fine documentaries wherein the late Mr. Leacock was behind the camera as the director of photography, snagging each and every shot that served the real-life story each movie was telling.

R.E.M.'s Collapse Into Now Continues Bold Tradition Of All-Video Albums

7 March 2011 11:30 AM, PST | MTV Newsroom | See recent MTV Newsroom news »

By Amber Colson

In the rock world, it's difficult to stay relevant for five years, let alone stay vital for 30. But R.E.M., the band who essentially invented indie rock, have done just that, and they're about to take another bold step through the 21st century with their new album Collapse Into Now (which hits stores on Tuesday, March 8th). This time around, the band has a bold plan in place for the new album: They plan to release a video for every single song on the album in the coming months. Frontman Michael Stipe announced that 2011 Oscar host James Franco will be directing a pair of clips, and other collaborators include filmmaker Sam Taylor-Wood (director of the John Lennon biopic "Nowhere Boy") and documentary filmmaker Albert Maysles (the man behind such classics as "Grey Gardens" and the Rolling Stones concert film "Gimme Shelter").

But while Stipe's project is pretty ambitious, »
