Chicago International Film Festival 2011

6 October 2011 6:22 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Besides the shorts we and the Chicago International Film Festival are showing for free, there are more than 180 other films in the lineup from 50 countries, with more than 45 films by first-time directors. I'll be gathering notes and links here from coverage of Ciff 47, opening today and running through October 20.

"The festival shows off its Chicago cred with this year's opening-night movie, produced by Steppenwolf Films and shot entirely in our city," writes Ben Kenigsberg, kicking off Time Out Chicago's day-by-day guide to the first week (featuring capsule previews of 70 films). With The Last Rites of Joe May, Joe Maggio "does a credible job with this story of a small-time operator (Dennis Farina) so ineffectual that when he's hospitalized for pneumonia, everyone assumes he's dead. Predictably, he finds redemption caring for a battered single mother and her kid. The movie is watchable, but there's barely a scene in it that's not a cliché. »

Read George Clooney’s List of the Top 100 Films from 1964-1976

26 September 2011 12:30 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

[1] George Clooney may be among the most prominent of celebrities, a fabulously wealthy, incredibly successful man at the very top of the A-list. But it seems there's a side of him that isn't so very different from film geeks like us who watch his movies. (Yes, all of that was a long-winded way of saying "Clooney: He's just like us!") For a recent interview about his upcoming Ides of March, which Clooney directed, produced, and starred in, Clooney revealed his top 100 films from 1964 to 1976, which he believes to be "the greatest era in filmmaking by far." The list is definitely cinephile-friendly, if not especially surprising: it includes tons of major classics and a handful of somewhat lesser known gems, all across a very wide variety of genres. Read the top 100 after the jump. Clooney told Parade [2] magazine that of that 100, his top five favorites are All the President's Men, Network, »

31 August 2011 10:43 PM, PDT | CineMovie | See recent CineMovie news »

Director and former stuntman David Ellis knows what scares people. The Snakes on the Plane and Final Destination director has taken on snakes, death, and now sharks in his latest horror thriller Shark Knight 3D.  The former stuntman played bait for the cameras in Deep Blue Sea (Samuel L. Jackson) and worked underwater in A Perfect Storm (George Clooney). In Shark Night 3D, David brings his knowledge of stunts, water, and shooting with 3D cameras which he is sharing with CineMovie in our Q&A with the director.

David Ellis spoke to CineMovie by telephone from the Boston set of R.I.P.P. where he is currently working as the stunt/action director.

Trevor Hogg profiles the career of legendary filmmaker George Lucas in the first of a six part feature...

“I was as normal as you can get,” stated American filmmaker George Lucas when reflecting upon his childhood. “I wanted a car and hated school. I was a poor student. I lived for summer vacations and got into trouble a lot shooting out windows with my Bb gun.” The California native was not initially drawn to the medium which would bring him fame and fortune. “Modesto was a small town, and there were only a couple of theatres. When I went to the movies I really didn’t pay much attention. I was usually looking for girls or to goof off.” George Lucas, Senior owned a stationary store where he sold office supplies and equipment to support his son, three daughters, and frequently invalid wife. “He was conservative, and I’m very conservative, »

Understanding Scorsese: A Martin Scorsese Profile (Part 1)

8 March 2011 11:58 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Trevor Hogg profiles the career of legendary American filmmaker Martin Scorsese in the first of a five part feature...

“Marty never gave me much trouble,” stated Charlie Scorsese of his famous filmmaking son. “Marty and his friends used to drink my liquor and fill empty bottles with water and Kayro syrup, but they were good boys. Marty was sickly, though, and couldn’t keep up with the other boys. That’s how the thing with the movies got started.” The elder Scorsese, who earned a living as a clothes presser in the New York City garment district, served as an early cinematic influence for the Academy Award-winning director. “Having asthma,” recalled Martin Scorsese, “I was often taken to movies because they didn’t know what else to do with me.” As for his lack of athletic prowess, Scorsese remarked, “On my block, people took games seriously.
