Raging Bull (1980)
Scorsese’s boxing epic owes it all to the edit. irector Martin Scorsese has worked with editor Thelma Schoonmaker for four decades, resulting in editing Oscar wins for three of their movies: The Departed, The Aviator, and, the one that cemented the pair’s working relationship, Raging Bull. The meticulous sports opus is one of the most […]

A documentary about Jim Carrey's method antics on the set of Man On The Moon turns out to be a profound and moving must-see, Ryan writes...
Why bother? It's a question occasionally worth levelling at the 'Method' - an immersive, all-consuming kind of acting created by the filmmaker and actor Konstantin Stanislavski. At its best, method acting brings us searing, self-searching performances like Robert De Niro's famous turns in Taxi Driver or Raging Bull.

On the other hand, method acting can sometimes come across as needy and attention-seeking or, perhaps worst of all, a bit of a waste of time. For David Ayer's Suicide Squad, actor Jared Leto reportedly got so embroiled in his character,
In previous film classes (which I should say are merely showcases for films that excel in whatever subject springs to my mind before writing) I’ve covered a range of aspects from the technical to the aesthetic and more. However in this instalment I want to delve deeper into character, and in particular the audio and visual tools a film-maker can use in order to effectively portray a descent into madness.
It’s particularly important that these tools are used creatively when the character in question is generally quiet. When he seems inactive until that inevitable moment when he fully unravels into explosive behaviour. I’ve covered films in previous instalments (and other articles) which I could easily have focused on here.
Back when he was in his early 20s and working on offshore oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico, Linklater would spend much of his downtime in H-Town educating himself in movie history by attending screenings just across the street, at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Or at the nearby Rice University Media Center. Or at art houses like the River Oaks Theatre — back when it screened repertory double bills — and the long-shuttered Greenway 3. He has spent most of his life and career in and around Austin, where he shot his breakthrough indie feature, “Slacker,” in 1989. But
Admit it: You heard the Chariots of Fire theme song in your head and visualized Mary Tyler Moore's ice cold mom as soon as you read the titles.

Want to enhance your horror movie? Make sure you sign up a cat...
This feature contains broad spoilers for several horror movies featuring cats, including Alien, Cat People, Drag Me To Hell, Fallen, A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night, Pet Sematary and The Voices.
The relationship between humans and cats over time has given way to a number of cultural impressions and outright superstitions. Ancient Egyptians associated them with gods. In the Middle Ages, they were linked with witches and killed en masse, which probably hastened the spread of the Black Plague through the rodent population. And in the modern day, it's interchangeably lucky or not if a black cat crosses your path.
Like anything with such a wide array of symbolic links, movies have presented cats as characters in different ways over the years. It's their abiding association with the supernatural – whether as an omen

Middleweight boxing champion of the world, Matty Burton, faces the biggest fight of his career when a life threatening injury irreparably changes him and his family.
The prospect of another boxing movie so soon after Creed, Southpaw, and Bleed for This might have your eyes rolling into the back of your head like one of Matty Burton’s (Paddy Considine) canvas bound opponents.
For the first twenty minutes that worry is fully justified, with Considine’s sophomore effort, following the stunning Tyrannosaur, feeling worryingly featherweight. The sporting environment is recreated as though it’s broadcasting on a higher-numbered digital channel, in other words, it’s a little bit rubbish, with boxing personalities (Steve Bunce) given prominent roles to increase the authenticity. It doesn’t really work
With the boxing movie sub-genre so saturated,
Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro have made eight movies together, one of the most fruitful and consistent creative partnerships in Hollywood history. Joe Pesci has had supporting roles in three Scorsese pictures including Raging Bull, Goodfellas, and Casino. Shockingly, Scorsese has never worked with Pacino before, despite
Based on “Simply Sylvio,” a series of avant-garde Vine videos created by Birney, the Kickstarter-funded “Sylvio” details the solitary existence of a Baltimore-based gorilla named Sylvio Bernardi (credited as himself), played by a person wearing a suit and tie and
For Detective Harry Hole (Fassbender), the murder of a young woman on the first snow of the winter feels like anything but a routine homicide case in his district. From the start of the investigation, The Snowman has personally targeted him with taunts—ones that continue to accompany each new vicious murder.
Fearing an elusive serial killer long-thought dead may be active again, the detective enlists brilliant recruit Katrine Bratt (Ferguson), to help him connect decades-old cold cases to the brutal new ones. Succeed, and they will
Schrader added his voice to the angry outcry against Weinstein with a rather tone-deaf Facebook post that downplays Weinstein’s personality as a “sexual gangster” since “most people who crossed his path” knew about it.
“Of course I knew Harvey Weinstein was a sexual gangster. So did most people who crossed his path. It was an odor that preceded him,” the post says. “That’s not what offended me most about the man. It was the fact that he purchased films by both Bernardo Bertolucci and Wong Kar Wai and then recut them. TWC offered to purchase Bret Ellis and my The Canyons on the proviso that Harvey could recut it — Why would Bret and I, I screamed

In the year 1980, there were many memorable films. Most of us remember the magic of movies like Raging Bull, The Empire Strikes Back, Caddyshack, Ordinary People, and Airplane!. These films gave moviegoers the true “movie going” experience, and we are still going back for more 37 years later. Accompanying these films were 2 modern horror classics,
As expected, his choices included some of the greatest films ever made, starting with “Raging Bull.” “That film changed my life,” he remarked, “make no mistake.” Emphasizing the sound design of the film, and a presence of a flaw in the scene he chose, Linklater applauded the picture, saying that, “recreating something but also translating that realness into it is so profound.” He reminisced that as
