Blu-ray Review: 'Quest for Fire' (rerelease)

6 August 2013 5:44 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆ A multi-award winning 101 minutes of dialogue-less travelogue about three Neanderthal tribesmen sent on a mission to find and steal fire from another clan, Jean-Jacques Annaud's Quest for Fire (1981) is nothing if not ambitious. Everett McGill (best known as Big Ed Hurley from Twin Peaks), Ron Perlman and Nameer El-Kadi star as the three hirsute proto-humans who encounter strange and violent scenes on their journey. Cinematographer Claude Agostini's work is reminiscent (perhaps because of the ape-like appearance of the cast) of The Planet of the Apes, taking in a variety of sweeping vistas.

The level of technical craft on display is astonishing. Justly awarded for the brilliant make-up and prosthetic work by Sarah Monzani and Michèle Burke and natural looking production design by a whole parade of talented art directors and designers, Quest for Fire has an earthy, almost tactile look to it. A memorable face-off with a pair »

Blu-ray Review - Quest for Fire (1981)

5 August 2013 5:16 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Quest for Fire, 1981.

Directed by Jean-Jacques Annaud.

Starring Everett McGill, Ron Perlman, Nicholas Kadi, Rae Dawn Chong and Gary Schwartz.

Synopsis:

This story takes place in prehistoric time when three prehistoric tribesmen search for a new fire source.

In the cinematic universe there exists a galaxy. This (cinematic) galaxy is populated with daring films which never quite find a mass audience. In part down to their sheer audacity to break convention, and also down to many other reasons, be it financial trouble, lack of marketing etc. Quest for Fire is such a film and only the most intrepid of cinema universe explorers tend to find such films.

Playing out in part like a David Attenborough documentary, and a pre-historic quest movie, this is a fascinating film that has been under the radar since its inception. This isn’t a low budget piece either. The budget at the time was fairly moderate. »

Boardwalk Empire: The Complete Third Season

When Boardwalk Empire first arrived, with its huge budget, a starring role for Steve Buscemi and a pilot directed by Martin Scorsese (the show's producer), there was much fanfare. But the spotlight quickly shifted to other, faster-paced, shinier and less complex shows. Shame, as that means many have missed out on seeing this enjoyable show turn into one of the best things on TV, a claim that this incredible third season makes good on.

This time around, kingpin "Nucky" Thompson (Buscemi) stands to lose it all as his crime empire comes under heavy fire. So how do they make us feel sympathy for such a murderous crook? Simple: set him against someone far, far worse. Hence the arrival of mobster Gyp Rosetti (Bobby Cannavale »

Durban Showcases African Film Renewal

18 July 2013 9:50 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Opening on July 18, the Durban Intl. Film Festival now ranks as one of the longest running, biggest and fastest growing of major African film events and a burgeoning platform for business in South Africa and beyond.

And if Durban’s 34th edition says anything about new film production in Africa, it’s “a sense of renewal of African cinematic language,” said new festival manager Peter Machen.

In this sense, the choice of Jahmil Xt Qubeka’s grisly “Of Good Report” as a curtain raiser was a statement of intent. Shot in b/w, laced by literary references — John Keats’ “Bright Star,” “Othello” are two — and described by Qubeka as a “cinephile’s passionate homage” to classic film noir, “Report” charts a English teacher’s discombobulated and soon increasingly demented obsession for a lively student with whom he begins an affair.

For Machen, “This year’s African and South African films have a freshness to them, »

Qubeka Brings Anarchy, Mayhem, Dissent to S.A. Biz

18 July 2013 9:47 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jahmil Xt Qubeka may be a young South African filmmaker, but he’s accomplished plenty in his time so far in the industry. His work has been highlighted at film festivals around the world, and his 2005 HIV/AIDS documentary, “Talk to Me,” won a 2005 Peabody Award. His 2010 film, “A Small Town Called Descent,” premiered at the 31st Durban Film Festival, and his latest pic, “Of Good Report,” which he calls “Little Red Riding Hood from the wolf’s perspective,” was set to open the 34th Durban Film Festival on Thursday, but the opening screening was cancelled when the South African government refused to grant the film a license. Before the dramatic events surrounding the cancelled opening night unfolded, he spoke to Variety about his approach to filmmaking.

Ron Perlman on Pacific Rim: 'It's not like Hellboy'

11 July 2013 4:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

He has one of the most recognisable faces in Hollywood – so why has the Pacific Rim star spent so much of his career hiding behind prosthetics? And why is that all changing now?

The living embodiment of John Waters' clarion casting-call for "faces that startle, not soothe", actor Ron Perlman has the hardest-working face in show-business. His head, that giant windswept crag of a cranium, is a thing of beauty that's usually been cast in ugly roles. His film debut was as a Neanderthal in Quest for Fire; his most famous role, leonine, not simian, was opposite Linda Hamilton in Beauty and the Beast – I'll let you guess which he was; and his happiest collaboration and hugest success was playing the son of the devil himself, in Guillermo Del Toro's Hellboy.

That's the other thing about that head. More often than not in Perlman's career it has been swaddled, »

Jj Annaud: 'Lots of lickings then you lose a leg'

30 May 2013 4:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The director on the joy of China, his affinity with Inner Mongolian wolves, and why embracing their bestiality might help keep people from therapy

As soon as he finishes his coffee in Cannes, Jean-Jacques Annaud will take a plane to Paris, then another to Beijing, then a third to Inner Mongolia. There he will drive for six hours to Ölgii and the set of his new film, a 1960s-set steppes epic. It's a monthly commute, one the 69-year-old has been making for three years since he started pre-production on the film, likely to be finished next year ("No fatigue! It's like love! You climb mountains, you cross oceans"). When he arrives, there will be no need to freshen up: a 75lb wolf will lacquer him in saliva the second he steps from the car.

This is Cloudy, one-time alpha male of the 30-strong pack. "We have a very extraordinary relationship, »
