Nyff: Out of Sight, Time Out of Mind

2 October 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Nyff continues. Here's Glenn looking at Richard Gere in 'Time Out of Mind'.

“The Richard Gere homeless movie” is a bit of a glib way to describe Time out of Mind, but that is the moniker that Oren Moverman’s third feature has found itself labelled with. I mean, it’s not like it’s without merit; Richard Gere does indeed play a homeless man, something far removed from the type of roles we’re more typically used to seeing the 65-year-old actor portray – and something one critic at the post-film Q&A attempted to allude to by asking the actor to compare this role to that in Paul Schrader’s American Gigolo, much to the actor’s and the crowd’s confusion.

I wish I could say there was more going on in Oren Moverman’s film, but I’m not sure I can. At least outside of the formal aspirations, »

The invisible man by Anne-Katrin Titze

Richard Gere with Time Out Of Mind director Oren Moverman: "We've been friends since I'm Not There." Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

Oren Moverman's undercover Time Out Of Mind stars Richard Gere with Ben Vereen, Kyra Sedgwick, Jena Malone and Steve Buscemi. At the New York Film Festival press conference the link between Bob Dylan and I'm Not There was revealed and the importance of studying Saul Leiter's photographs by the director. The line in Richard Gere's mind between Robert Bresson's Pickpocket and Dostoyevsky through American Gigolo turning into Time Out Of Mind drew out the process.

Church bells ring. There is the skyline of Manhattan. Where from? What is this perspective? There is a butterfly at the window. A man walks into an almost empty apartment, cursing. There is another man with a cut on his brow, waking up in a dry bathtub. "Nobody lives here," says the first man. »

First Look: Nicolas Cage in Paul Schrader's Film 'Dying of the Light'

24 September 2014 4:03 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Wait - Paul Schrader, screenwriter of Raging Bull & Taxi Driver and director of American Gigolo, cast Nicolas Cage in his new film? This has to be a joke? Nope. It's real, and it's already shot and finishing up for 2015 release. Schrader's new "mid-budget indie", which he wrote and directed, is titled Dying of the Light executive produced by fellow filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn. What a team-up this is: Schrader, Refn, Cage. Who else? Well, the cast includes Anton Yelchin (also seen in the photo), Alexander Karim and Irène Jacob. I won't deny that I'm curious about this. Take a look at the image below, which doesn't reveal much about the way this will play. Of all the recent Cage films, this is the one I'm most interested in. Here's the first photo from Paul Schrader's film Dying of the Light, debuted by Variety (via SlashFilm): The project has been in development for years, »

Paul Schrader, Nicolas Refn, Producers Talk ‘Light’ Troubles (Exclusive)

23 September 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The plot has thickened concerning the troubled Paul Schrader-Nicolas Cage thriller “Dying of the Light.” Responding to a Sept. 4 Variety story about alleged editing-room tensions between director Schrader and his producers, multiple sources, including Schrader and Nicolas Winding Refn, have now spoken publicly for the first time about the ongoing situation.

As earlier reported, Schrader shot the mid-budget indie (from his own script) in Romania and Australia earlier this year, with Cage starring as a veteran CIA agent who tracks an elusive terrorist while battling the debilitating effects of frontotemporal dementia. Schrader’s script, written as a spec in 2010, initially attracted the attention of Refn, who had hoped to direct a version of the movie starring Harrison Ford that eventually fell apart due to disagreements between director and actor. When the movie finally went into production with Schrader at the helm, the “Drive” director agreed to stay on as an executive producer. »

15 Must-See Modern Noirs (Clips)

29 August 2014 2:17 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The noir since 1960 is like pornography: it's hard to describe, but you know it when you see it. With "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" in theaters, it may be time to tackle the question more directly. To paraphrase Paul Schrader, what is a (modern) film noir? In 1972, Schrader, now known for his work as a screenwriter ("Taxi Driver") and director ("American Gigolo"), penned the classic essay "Notes on Film Noir" for Film Comment. It's an ideal introduction, laying out film noir's influences, aesthetics, and themes in terse, colloquial language. He argues that the American movies of the Forties and Fifties that French critics labeled "film noir" -- defined by hard-boiled writing, chiaroscuro lighting, oblique compositions, and disillusionment with the postwar order -- constituted not a genre but a movement, more like German Expressionism or the French New Wave than the gangster film or the Western. And so, like any movement, »

Charlie Hunnam Has Been Crowned As The New King Arthur

28 August 2014 7:56 AM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Every now and then, there are two actors whose careers seem to circle around each other, covering similar ground and affording one actor opportunities when the other passes or drops out of a project. The most legendary pair of that sort is that of Richard Gere and John Travolta, as the latter has passed on films like An Officer And A Gentleman, American Gigolo, and most notably Chicago, leaving the former to be cast in his absence. If this recent casting news out of Guy Richie's King Arthur project is any indication, Charlie Hunnam and Jamie Dornan just might become that new pair of opportunists. Deadline was pleased to report that Pacific Rim actor Charlie Hunnam has signed on for the first of a planned six-picture franchise of King Arthur tales, which will have its first installment directed by Richie and is being aimed for a July 2016 release.

Mavericks Conversation With… Denzel Washington and Antoine Fuqua

Denzel Washington is one of the film world’s most prominent leading men, known best for his galvanizing portrayals of both real-life figures (Malcolm X, The Hurricane, American Gangster) and fictional characters (Philadelphia, Devil in a Blue Dress, Flight). Washington returns to the Festival starring in The Equalizer, an intense thriller that reunites him with director Antoine Fuqua (Brooklyn’s Finest, Shooter, Olympus Has Fallen) for the first time since their Oscar-winning collaboration on Training Day. »

The 25 Best '80s Movie Soundtracks (Video)

24 July 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's hard to imagine it today, when movies are in and out of theaters in a week or two, to be replaced by the next much-hyped blockbuster, but there was a time, back in the '80s, when movies were so pervasive that their soundtracks sold in the millions, making them ubiquitous in theaters, on the radio, and on MTV all at once. The high point of the soundtrack era may have come this week 30 years ago, with the release of Prince's autobiographical film "Purple Rain" on July 27, 1984.

The movie itself was just okay -- except during the performance sequences, which were electrifying and remain so today -- but the soundtrack was mindblowing. And for the latter half of 1984, you couldn't turn on the radio without hearing one of its tracks -- "When Doves Cry," "Let's Go Crazy," "I Would Die 4 U," or the epic power ballad that was the title track. »

New on Video: ‘Pickpocket’

22 July 2014 6:19 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »


Written and directed by Robert Bresson

France, 1959

Robert Bresson’s is one of the great singular visions of the cinema. Like Stanley Kubrick and Andrei Tarkovsky, Bresson’s output was relatively minimal — 13 features over the course of 40 years — but it is likewise instantly recognizable. Though it’s something of an auteurist cliché to say that one can identify a given director’s work by just a single scene or even a single frame, in this case, the declaration holds true. Bresson’s work is so distinct, so deceptively simple, so regimented in its formal construction, that to see one of his films is to witness an exceptional directorial style, one consistently employed throughout an artist’s body of work. With this consistency comes the subsequent creation of one extraordinary film after another, each similar to the previous, with reoccurring imagery, themes, and performances, but each, at the same time, »

'True Blood' costume designer talks Eric and Pam's formal, flashback attire

20 July 2014 9:53 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched this week’s episode of True Blood, “Lost Cause,” stop reading now. (Or, at least read our full recap first.) The Pam and Eric show continued as the duo traveled to Dallas in search of Sarah Newlin at a Ted Cruz fundraiser hosted at the Bush Library. We spoke to True Blood’s costume designer, Audrey Fisher, about their memorable formal wear. And because we’re still obsessed with those flashbacks to 1986, 1996, and 2006, we got the backstory on those looks as well.

Interview: Lee Pace on 'Halt and Catch Fire' and 'Guardians of the Galaxy'

29 May 2014 9:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Lee Pace doesn't do many projects that generate ambivalence.  After making his small screen bones in the Bryan Fuller-created "Wonderfalls" and "Pushing Daisies" and having his earliest big screen exposure in Tarsem Singh's polarizingly unique "The Fall," Pace has been on an absurd franchise streak of late.  He checked "Twilight" off the list as Garrett in the second part of "Breaking Dawn."  His Thranduil has had an increasingly large presence through the last two "Hobbit" films. And this summer, Pace will enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Ronan the Accuser in "Guardians of the Galaxy." It's unclear how many Lee Paces exist, because amidst these major franchise films, Pace also found the time for his return to regular series television.  On the new AMC drama "Halt and Catch Fire," Pace plays Joe MacMillan, a former Ibm wunderkind who recruits Scoot McNairy's Gordon Clark to work with him »

‘Something has changed in the industry…’ Bret Easton Ellis on the post-theatrical world of The Canyons

9 May 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

‘What is the topic of conversation, Jon?’ It’s midnight and my time with the author begins with a dry incredulity when I mention the witching hour at which I’m calling.

‘Why are you doing an interview at midnight? I can barely form a sentence at midnight… that sounds  interesting…’

I admit it. I fudged my explanation, clearly omitting the fact that this was the only time we could work out. I didn’t expect his next question, which was ‘Do you drink?’ I do, but not much since I became a parent, ‘Well…that does happen I guess when you have kids, doesn’t it? You cut it out…’ he paused for just a moment, ‘or you have more of it.’

The Canyons is a film to drink to, not in the snarkful drinking game way but the arid burn of the sun-bleached Hollywood noir works better when »

By Moroder: An Interview with Giorgio Moroder

25 March 2014 2:44 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

The reemergence of Giorgio Moroder to mainstream prominence over the last year has been one of the great unexpected gifts for music enthusiasts. In the wake of his seemingly inevitable collaboration with dance icons Daft Punk, Moroder has been collaborating, remixing, and working on new material of his own—not to mention DJing live for the first time in his storied career. In the process he has introduced himself to a new generation of fans, rightly receiving his due as an influential producer and sonic innovator. But what has yet to be widely recognized is the thumbprint Moroder has left on modern film composing. His iconic, Oscar-winning scores and songs for many of the biggest films of the late-1970s and ‘80s (Midnight Express, Top Gun) have long since entered the pantheon, but with the recent popularity of nostalgia-fueled films such as Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive, Moroder’s influence »

John Travolta Struts Into London’s West End For A Conversation With Barry Norman

17 February 2014 3:18 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Saturday Night Fever, Grease, Pulp Fiction, Get Shorty, Face/ Off. Just five of the many iconic John Travolta movies in a career that has spanned five decades and over fifty movies. In that time Travolta has appeared in musicals, horror films, thrillers, comedies, action movies, dramas, animated fares and science fiction epics. He is the actor that has seen it all and done it all. In last 35 years, since his career blossomed with a role in a 1977 musical named Grease, he has overcome personal tragedy, critical acclaim and critical mauling, career highs, career lows and at least two movie rebirths in the late 80s and 90s, most notably with the 1994 cult movie Pulp Fiction, from director Quentin Tarantino; and here he is in London, on perhaps the most glamourous nights of the year, BAFTA night, to celebrate his career and his life with the people he clearly adores the most, »
