DVD Review – River (2015)

18 July 2016 1:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

River, 2015.

Directed by Jamie M. Dagg.

Starring Rossif Sutherland, Sara Botsford, Ted Atherton and Aidan Gillett.

 

Synopsis:

Working for an Ngo in Laos, volunteer doctor John (Rossif Sutherland) is devastated when a patient dies on the operating table.  Ordered to take some leave, he decides to explore the country and heads south.  When he comes across the aftermath of a rape, he gets into a fight with the perpetrator and becomes the prime suspect in the man’s murder.  He needs to get out of the country.  Fast.

The innocent abroad when everything goes wrong.  A familiar idea, with Midnight Express one of the best examples.  So what do you do if you’re half way around the world, you only speak a few words of the language and you’re accused of murder?  If you’re John, the doctor at the centre of Jamie M. Dagg’s River, you go on the run. »

Michael Cimino & the Best Director Oscar Since

6 July 2016 9:32 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Eric here with thinking about the past 40 years of Oscars Best Director category.

This past Saturday, director Michael Cimino passed away at age 77.  Cimino won the Best Director Oscar for 1978’s The Deer Hunter, beating Woody Allen (Interiors), Hal Ashby (Coming Home), Warren Beatty and Buck Henry (Heaven Can Wait), and Alan Parker (Midnight Express).  While those five actual films are of varying quality, the names behind them are all heavyweights and it was formidable company.

The Deer Hunter was a divisive film upon its release and remains so today (praised for its leisurely-paced first half and its capture of inexpressive male friendship; criticized for the Russian Roulette melodrama and its depiction of the Vietnamese). With The Deer Hunter, Cimino aimed to make something epic and classically Greek in its storytelling, and watching the film you can actually feel his young talent. Cimino next famously (infamously?) went on to direct 1980’s Heaven’s Gate, »

Oliver Stone Talks ‘Snowden’ Financing Struggle, Film vs. TV and Military ‘Adulation’ in Movies

25 June 2016 11:28 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Nantucket, Mass. — Oliver Stone pulled no punches and named names in detailing the struggle to finance his new movie about National Security Administration whistleblower Edward Snowden during a Q&A Saturday with fellow director Bennett Miller.

During the wide-ranging discussion, held as part of the Nantucket Film Festival, Stone also weighed in on his lack of enthusiasm for most serialized TV dramas, his disdain for the “adulation” of the U.S. military in many contemporary films and how Dino De Laurentiis dashed his hopes for “Conan the Barbarian” to have blossomed as a long-running franchise.

The intimate gathering at a private home on the water included actor Zachary Quinto, who plays journalist Glenn Greenwald in “Snowden,” and numerous writer-directors with pics at the fest, such as Mike Birbiglia (“Don’t Think Twice”), Julia Hart (“Miss Stevens”), Clay Tweel (“Gleason”) and Chris Kelly (“Other People”). The Nantucket fest, which wraps Monday, »

‘Godfather of Disco’ Giorgio Moroder on Scoring ‘Tron’ and Other New Forays Into Soundtracks

13 June 2016 5:46 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Godfather of disco” Giorgio Moroder, 76, has been really busy since the release in 2013 of Daft Punk album “Random Access Memories,” featuring his spoken word contribution in a tribute track titled “Giorgio by Moroder.” It generated his fourth Grammy, a globetrotting tour as a superstar disk spinner, and a solo album titled “Deja Vu,” released in 2015. More recently Moroder also revived his glorious career as a soundtrack composer, co-creating the music for Disney’s “Tron Run/r” videogame and for USA network’s TV series “Queen of the South,” set to go on air this summer in America. With current composing partner Raney Schokne, Moroder is also working on the soundtrack for Walter Hill’s upcoming gender reassignment thriller “Tomboy,” which stars Michelle Rodriguez as a male hitman who falls in the hands of a rogue surgeon – played by Sigourney Weaver – who turns him into a woman. He’s also got a new solo album in the works.

Moroder, who was honored on Friday at the American Academy in Rome with a McKim Medal, spoke to Variety about his new forays into crafting soundtracks and the latest twists in his career.

I think ‘Tron’ was the first time you scored a videogame. Was it a challenge?

It’s actually a lot easier than a movie. Because the tracks are a lot shorter. I can compose – say – fifteen-seconds of music; then we do about twenty different mixes of that piece, which the guy who is editing the game can use. It’s all very fast. And you don’t need to watch the visuals while you are composing, because you can’t do anything directly yourself anyway. I’m not saying it’s that easy, but it’s quite different. Also, initially the new ‘Tron’ videogame pieces were short, but then we made them longer. We made eight or nine three-or-four minute tracks.

Can you tell me about ‘Queen of the South’?

It’s about dirt poor Mexican woman who becomes a drug-smuggling queen. She goes from Mexico to Texas and becomes a Scarface-like drug lord character, sort of like a female El Chapo. It has some similarities with Mexican telenovela ‘La Reina Del Sur,’ which starred Kate del Castillo, the actress who was with Sean Penn when he interviewed El Chapo, so I guess it’s all interconnected.

I believe this was your first time scoring a TV series. What was the work like? 

The production sort of wanted the sound and fast rhythm I created in the 1970’s on songs like Donna Summer’s “I Feel Love,” and also Blondie’s “Call Me.” They also really liked my 1980’s work on the “Scarface” soundtrack. Initially I thought to myself: ‘I would have gone for a different sound.’ But now I’m really happy with the way Raney [Schokne] and I did it.

What can you tell me about working on Walter Hill’s ‘Tomboy’?

I met Walter Hill when he produced “Alien.” Right now “Tomboy” is one of my main projects. I’m working on it with Raney Shockne and we are almost done, but I can’t tell you more.

What’s your other main project?

I’m working on a new single with Windy Wagner, which I will be releasing after I finish my dj tour in September. It will be the first single from my next album.

What are the movie soundtracks you’ve done that you are most fond of? 

Well, I haven’t done that many. “Midnight Express” was all synth. It was my first film and is still the closest to my heart because, aside the fact that I won an Oscar for it, I had no idea what Alan Parker wanted. He never told me, so I did pretty much what I wanted. “Scarface” was a great film for me. But there are two really standout films for me. One is the theme I wrote for “Flashdance,” because it encapsulates a complete body of music. The lyrics are good, Irene Cara who sang it, was amazing. It was released before the movie, and it helped the movie. The other is “Take My Breath Away” [from “Top Gun”], that’s the one I like the most from a purely musical standpoint.

How does it feel at your age, to spin discs for such huge crowds?

I really like it. I’ve always wanted to be a performing artist, but my voice wasn’t that great. And I was also afraid of performing. So I never really pursued it. But now I’m not nervous at all. The great thing about it is around 70 percent of the tracks I play are my own, including some new tracks.

Your works have been remixed and covered so much. What’s your favorite redo of ‘I Feel Love’ besides the Donna Summer version?

I love the way violinist Vanessa Mae covered ‘I Feel Love,’ it’s certainly one of my favorite remixes of that song

Film Sales Company to sell 'Midnight Return'

2 May 2016 2:05 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Andrew Herwitz has picked up worldwide sales rights to Cannes Classics selection Midnight Return: The Story Of Billy Hayes And Turkey.

Sally Sussman’s film explores the backstory and aftermath of Alan Parker’s 1978 Cannes Film Festival premiere Midnight Express, which earned a best screenplay Oscar for then little-known Oliver Stone, drew the wrath of the Turkish government and became an overnight sensation.

Stone, Parker and producers David Puttnam and Peter Guber discuss their involvement, while the film’s real-life inspiration Billy Hayes attempts to return to Turkey in an effort to rebuild bridges.

“This film proves the maxim that fact is stranger than fiction and is a must see for any cinephile,” said Herwitz.

Sussman said: “Very few films stay in the zeitgeist for decades after their release but Midnight Express is one of them.

“Everyone remembers that movie but what they don’t know is the true story, which is much »

My Last-minute Oscar Predictions

27 February 2016 5:00 PM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

It’s been such a good year at the movies that I’m a little bit surprised by the degree to which I’m approaching tomorrow night’s Academy Awards ceremony with something resembling… disinterest. And again, it’s not necessarily the movies. It’s hard to remember a year when there wasn’t at least one obvious howler among the five, or now five-to-10 nominees—just by turning to random pages in Robert Osborne’s 70 Years of Oscar—The Official History of the Academy Awards I am reminded that The Turning Point, Midnight Express, Fatal Attraction and Mississippi Burning were all lauded by the Academy with Best Picture nominations. This year all eight movies nominated are, in my eyes, worthy of some measure of honor, including Room, my choice for the movie of the year. Yet I can’t remember the last time—could it have been 1991?—when I »

Oliver Stone's 'Snowden' Pushed Again To Fall, Festival Buzz Starts Building

19 February 2016 2:51 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Had the stars aligned differently, Oliver Stone's "Snowden" starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt may have been an Oscar contender. The picture was originally slated to open on Christmas Day, but citing the need for more time, Open Road pushed it back to May 13th. Well, it looks like the studio thinks they've got something with strong critical potential on their hands, as they've moved it yet again.

Fright At Home Reviews: Sonny Boy, The Last Witch Hunter, Burroughs: The Movie and More!!

1 February 2016 4:33 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

This week sees two Fright At Home articles because, to be honest, we’ve seen quite a few films lately, ones that have stayed in our heads. This one also sees a documentary about one of the greatest writers of all time, William S. Burroughs. We’ve got quite a few films to cover in this one, and we’re excited to tell you Fright Fanatics all about them. Read on!

 

Sonny Boy (Dir. Robert Martin Carroll)

One of the craziest films I’ve ever seen, Robert martin Carroll’s Sonny Boy is like a coked-up look at family and insanity. Revolving around a very unconventional family full of colorful characters, the film follows “Sonny Boy”, a kind-napped baby who over the years, grows up and is stored in a cage. Beaten and having his tongue cut out by the demented Slue (Midnight Express) , Sonny Boy years for an escape »
