Cannes Review: ‘Rodin’ Doesn’t Do Justice to a Great Artist

27 May 2017 6:47 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It’s one thing to make a movie about an artist and his art; it is a whole other thing to make a movie about an artist mostly just doing his art. That is the central focus of Rodin, a film concerning the famed sculptor Auguste Rodin (Vincent Lindon) that all but sucks away the drama in favor of scenes of the artist creating his work. Some of these sequences do in fact work, especially when director Jacques Doillon is trying to recreate the time period when Rodin was struggling to make the sculpture of Balzac. Authorities aren’t happy that he has painted him as an overweight figure, which he was, and demand a skinnier version. The eureka moment is his ingenious idea of plastering a robe on the statue. It’s the film’s finest scene, making one feel as if they were in the room that day when that time-capsule-worthy moment happened. »

Cannes 2017: Rodin review: Dir. Jacques Doillon (2017)

25 May 2017 4:31 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Rodin review: Jacques Doillon directs this really rather dull and uneventful biopic of legendary French artist Auguste Rodin in Rodin, making its way into official competition at Cannes 2017.

Rodin review by Paul Heath at the 2017 Festival de Cannes.

Rodin review

We open to 1880 Paris where the title card immediately informs us that Rodin has reached the age of 40, and has received his first state commission from the French government. He begins on ‘The Gates Of Hell’, a collection of figurines including the famous ‘The Kiss’ and ‘The Thinker’, some of his most famous work. It is at this time where he meets the Camille Claudel, a talented young woman, his student, who quickly becomes his assistant, and ultimately his mistress. The decade-spanning story, whittled down to just two very long hours, details Rodin’s shortcomings and unfulfillment with his work, notably his famous Balzac, a sculpture that wouldn’t gain respect during his lifetime, »

Drive-In Dust Offs: Don’T Torture A Duckling (1972)

1 April 2017 10:44 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Lucio Fulci is known to most horror fans for his work in the fantastical, through his late career success with Zombie (1979), City of The Living Dead (1980), and The Beyond (1981). Certainly these are his most widely seen and cherished films, and for good reason – they blast through the screen in a feast of color, magic, and grue; short on logic, sure, but long on imagination and dread. But before he untethered his heart in a quest for purity, he engaged in his homeland’s horror sub-genre of giallo, including Don’t Torture a Duckling (1972), incredible, subversive proof that he could create something just as effective and decidedly much more earth bound.

Released late September back home in his native Italy, Duckling never received its due (or much attention at all, truthfully) on these shores until Fulci’s death in 1996 offered a re-evaluation of his body of work. Thanks to the internet, »

Blu-ray Review – Pieces (1982)

27 March 2017 1:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Pieces, 1982.

Directed by Juan Piquer Simón.

Starring Christopher George, Lynda Day George, Jack Taylor, Frank Braña, Edmund Purdom, Paul Smith, and Ian Sera.

Synopsis:

A killer stalks a college campus looking for victims so he can use their body parts to make a human jigsaw.

One of the better 1980s slasher movies to not get a sequel (although there is still time), Pieces is a Spanish production that followed in the wake of Friday the 13th, The Burning, My Bloody Valentine, et al but became notorious amongst savvy genre audiences for being more gruesome, bloody and downright sleazy than those previous movies. Naturally, the fully uncut version didn’t appear until relatively recently – within the last decade, in fact – and despite putting it out on DVD back in 2011, the wizards at Arrow Video have now unleashed the film on a limited edition Blu-ray, and if that wasn’t enough to »

Hellish new poster for Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant

23 March 2017 6:28 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A new poster has arrived online from Ridley Scott’s highly-anticipated follow-up to Prometheus, Alien: Covenant , which seems very reminiscent of Auguste Rodin’s sculptural work ‘The Gates of Hell’; take a look below…

See Also: Ridley Scott says there will definitely be four more Alien movies after Covenant

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in Alien with Alien: Covenant, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with Prometheus — and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.

The Bottom Shelf: Frankenhooker, We Are The Flesh

20 March 2017 12:33 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Apr 28, 2017

Lucio Fulci, Frankenhooker and more in our round up of new horror Blu-rays and DVDs...

So, what’s your personal idea of hell? For this writer, it would almost certainly involve being chained down in the audience of an eternal live filming of Loose Women as Donald Trump waves a slice of tiger bread, forever just out of reach. Yours is likely to be similar, though it would have to be pretty grim indeed to come anywhere near Lucio Fulci’s 1981 career-best infernal vision and perhaps the definitive (obviously other than Little Nicky) cinematic depiction of eternal damnation, The Beyond.

Forbidden Tomes: Books to Films – The Literary Influences on Lucio Fulci

6 January 2017 2:09 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Few filmmakers have accomplished what Lucio Fulci has by turning gorefest pulp into a demented form of art. For the uninitiated, it may be impossible to get past the incomprehensible dubbing, inhuman acting, and nonexistent plots in some of Fulci’s films. Once used to these elements, though, one can see the way his films feel like nightmares, a series of impressionistic images that inspire dread. While I won’t claim that Fulci’s films are high art, I can perceive something important going on beneath the smears of gore. He has more on his mind than creative kills.

In two of Fulci’s films, The Beyond and City of the Living Dead, there are direct references to Clark Ashton Smith, the author who helped create the fantasy and science fiction genres. Smith was a friend of H.P. Lovecraft, and created a cosmic mythos of his own, with inventions like »
