Screenplay Oscar Contenders Take Bold Experiments Mainstream

19 November 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

‘Birdman” deserves kudos for the technical coup of seeming to have been filmed in one, uninterrupted two-hour take. But its quartet of scripters can take a bow for the film’s own coup: That single take encompasses three days and nights. So seamlessly are events arranged, the viewer may not even notice the time manipulation.

Alejandro G. Inarritu’s magic-realism fantasy is only one of a host of 2014 screenplays playing fast and loose with chronology. Challenging leaps, elisions and parallel narratives are becoming serious cinema’s norm, rather than the exception.

On one level, this was to be expected. Every art form dominated by straight narrative eventually fractures. Joyce, Proust and Faulkner broke apart the novel; Eliot, Pound and Yeats did the same to poetry. As Picasso and Braque were chopping portrait painting into unrecognizable shapes, Schoenberg and Stravinsky were infusing symphonic music with 12-tone atonality. Who can be surprised »

Scandal, Ep. 4.08, “The Last Supper” prepares for an intense winter finale

14 November 2014 11:48 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Scandal, Season 4, Episode 8, “The Last Supper

Written by Allan Heinberg

Directed by Julie Anne Robinson

Airs Thursdays at 9pm Est on ABC

On this week’s Scandal, Olivia, Jake, and Fitz join forces to defeat Rowan, Olivia turns on a client to help Cyrus, Huck brings his son on a stakeout, and Mellie reunites with an old lover.

The Last Supper” is the most fun Scandal‘s been in a long time. This is partly because next week is the winter finale, but it’s also because watching the main cast members team up to take down a big threat is always enjoyable. Season four has felt a little lost and directionless thus far, but “The Last Supper” gives the story the focus it’s been so desperately needing.

While sticking Oliva, Fitz, and Jake in a tiny room together is the perfect recipe for drama and tension, this strange »

Scandal Recap: “The Last Supper”

13 November 2014 7:53 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Scandal was full of twists and turns and unholy alliances in "The Last Supper," the most worrying of which is that Rowan appears to have his own private sniper squad.  Though Olivia, Fitz, David Rosen, and others may be masters of their domains, they are no match (apparently, yet), even as a team, against Rowan.  Hit the jump for why, "I don't want justice.  I want to kill your father." The best Scandal episodes are ones that tie in together throughout the hour.  "The Last Supper" was one of those, somehow combining all of its disparate parts into a long, contiguous maze of alliances and betrayals.  Let's map this out. Fitz-Olivia-Jake The latest and most potent of the love triangles, both men are desperately vying for Olivia's favor.  Jake calls her his girlfriend, and rubs their island time together in Fitz's face.  But his posturing all comes from insecurity; he »

‘Scandal’ Preview: Jeff Perry Talks Cyrus’ ‘Catastrophic’ Choices

13 November 2014 11:09 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Scandal’s” Cyrus Beene (Jeff Perry) is as much of a fixer as chief gladiator Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) — albeit for less noble causes — but this season, the White House Chief of Staff is playing with fire thanks to an ill-advised relationship with a prostitute called Michael (Matthew Del Negro), and in the Nov. 13 episode, titled “The Last Supper,” he’s liable to get burned. Cyrus, whose husband James (Dan Bucatinsky) was murdered last season, just discovered that Michael is under the employ of Rnc chairwoman Elizabeth North (Portia de Rossi) and has been spying on Cy since their affair began. It looks like the fixer needs some fixing.

Variety spoke to Perry — a veteran of stage and screen who first joined the Shondaland roster with a recurring role on “Grey’s Anatomy” — about the impending scandal hanging over his character’s head, his empathy for troubled First Lady Mellie »

Google-Albert Yeung Defamation Case Can Go To Appeal in Hong Kong

30 October 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hong Kong – A judge has given permission for the Internet giant Google to appeal an earlier ruling that Hong Kong has jurisdiction over a defamation case brought by Emperor Motion Pictures chairman and business tycoon Albert Yeung Sau-shing.

The case relates to searches of Yeung’s name on Google and suggestions made by the auto-complete function. In both Chinese and English versions auto-complete proposes the word ‘triad,’ a reference to Hong Kong organized crime syndicates, when searching for Yeung.

Yeung accuses Google of libel and is seeking to have Google remove the organized crime references.

In August, Google had tried to have the case dismissed before it could go to trial. It argued first that the Hong Kong courts do not have jurisdiction over the company, and second that Google cannot be held responsible for search suggestions. It argued that auto-complete suggestions use an algorithm driven by the search terms »

Ashish Avikunthak’s Rati Chakravyuh: Tales of a long-take

14 October 2014 11:19 PM, PDT | DearCinema.com | See recent DearCinema.com news »

A still from Rati Chakravyuh

Ashish Avikunthak’s Rati Chakravyuh (2013) will have its international premiere at Aicon Gallery, New York, on October 22. If you are unfamiliar with Avikunthak’s cinema, then I recommend Rati Chakravyuh as an ideal primer for exploring some of his more intricate and philosophically oriented works. In the art and independent film circuits, Avikunthak is known as someone who is very much at the forefront of an exciting resurgence of experimental filmmaking in India. Selected as a 2014 great artist in Art Review’s annual list, he has been working in the medium of film for over a decade. He also teaches film at the University of Rhode Island and has curated film programmes devoted to showcasing non-mainstream film practices in India. Preferring to define himself as a film-artist than a filmmaker, Avikunthak’s films are mostly self-financed with modest budgets, and they have been exhibited in »

The Brotherhood Needs Saving In Assassin’s Creed: Unity Story Trailer

8 October 2014 9:46 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Up until now, Ubisoft has really only demonstrated how Assassin’s Creed: Unity will be different from every other game in the franchise. Basically, it’s just another year in the history of Assassin’s Creed, although to be fair, last year’s Black Flag was fairly refreshing thanks to the pirate themed gameplay that felt like Grand Theft Auto with ships. So in all honesty, maybe Unity and its co-operative stealth based missions will reinvigorate the fun of the franchise once again.

The only underlying concern is that I couldn’t tell you a damn thing about the story, other than that it takes place during the French Revolution. Thankfully, Ubisoft is now beginning to promote the narrative as the release date draws near. And that’s a good thing, too, because traditionally, the new layer of rewritten history is a huge selling point for Assassin’s Creed.

1980s Geek Culture Art - The 80's Last Supper

7 October 2014 7:12 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I'm a product of the 1980s. I was a kid in that era, and I absolutely loved it. I look back on those years, and there's so much radical stuff that kids of that time could enjoy. There was a lot of ridiculousness as well. I have no idea what the world was thinking in terms of fashion, but the TV shows, cartoons, and movies were amazing. 

Artist Bill McConkey created an amusing illustration that features several iconic pop-culture characters from the '80s. He called it The 80's Last Supper, and it was obviously inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci's The Last Supper, only much geekier. I also like that there are movie posters for other classic '80s movies hanging up on the wall. »

The Definitive ‘What the F**k?’ Movies: 10-1

23 September 2014 8:26 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

10. Altered States (1980)

Directed by: Ken Russell

Is it a horror film? Many of Ken Russell’s films could be argued as such, but there’s enough in Altered States that makes it less horror and more science fiction/psychological thriller. Based on the novel by Paddy Chayefsky, Altered States introduced the world to William Hurt (and also featured the film debut of Drew Barrymore). Edward Jessup (Hurt) is studying schizophrenia, but branches out into sensory deprivation experimentation with a floating tank. Eventually, he travels to Mexico to visit a tribe that provides him with an extract which he begins to take before his trips into the flotation tank, resulting in bizarre imagery and eventual physical devolution, once to a primitive man and to a near primordial blob. Side effects start to occur, causing Edward to suffer from episodes of partial regression even without the hallucinogenic drug. Russell’s direction shifts »

Days of Past in The Future? Six 80s TV Shows ready for the big screen

11 September 2014 4:04 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

It was the huge success of Brian de Palma’s The Untouchables back in 1987 that made Hollywood realise that vast amounts of money could be mined from a middle-aged audience by revisiting their childhood nights spent in front of the television. Fellow 1950s TV stalwart Dragnet arrived the same year to lesser acclaim – pairing Dan Aykroyd’s stoic Joe Friday against Tom Hanks’s impossibly-named Pep Streebeck – but the ball kept rolling.

In the 1990s, the ‘movie version of the classic 1960s TV show’ became a genre of its own. Some were huge hits (The Fugitive, Maverick), some spawned brand new franchises (Mission: Impossible, The Addams Family), some were absolute disasters (The Avengers, Wild Wild West). The best of them cooked up something fresh and new from the old ingredients, creating something with pan-generational appeal. If the recipe was right, there were huge dividends to reap.

Emperor Boss Albert Yeung Allowed to Sue Google, Hk Court Rules

6 August 2014 5:10 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hong Kong – A Hong Kong court has given prominent film mogul Albert Yeung Sau-shing leave to sue Google for defamation.

Yeung, whose empire spans jewelry, property and finance in Hong Kong and mainland China, is also chairman of the Hong Kong-based Emperor Motion Pictures group.

The case relates to searches for Yeung’s name on Google and suggestions made by the auto-complete function. In both Chinese and English versions auto-complete proposes the word ‘triad,’ a reference to Hong Kong organized crime syndicates, when searching for Yeung.

Yeung (pictured, right, with Chinese actor Ge You, left) accuses Google of libel and is seeking to have it remove the organized crime references.

Google had tried to have the case dismissed before it can go to trial. It argued first that the Hong Kong courts do not have the jurisdiction over the company, and second that Google cannot be held responsible for search suggestions. »

#SDCC14: Behold Rob Zombie's Assassin's Creed

25 July 2014 11:21 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

The French Revolution is the setting for the upcoming entry in the Assassin’s Creed franchise, Assassin’s Creed Unity. With such a large and historic backdrop for a game, developer Ubisoft wanted to provide fans with a bit of a back story for what has been dubbed “the first next-gen game.”

A short video would have been fine, but they went way beyond the call of duty by having one directed by Rob Zombie. For telling the story of a time filled with death, Zombie is perfectly suited for the task.

Now, before the comments of “Lords of Salem sucked” and “he ruined Halloween” come pouring in, this video is a return to Zombie’s previous modus operandi of sheer, unadulterated, and explicitly pornographic violence. It very much has the feel of The Devil’s Rejects rather than the art house air of his recent work.

Here's what it's like to attend a Nicolas Cage-themed art show

21 July 2014 2:43 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Around 9 p.m. Saturday night in Los Angeles, a small but eager group stood in a building entrance lit only by Christmas lights and the flashlight of a lone security guard. A large, service-like elevator hit the ground floor, and soon, they slowly ascended to what’s called The Syrup Loft for an event seemingly ridiculous in theory, but executed with unbridled commitment: The Nicolas Cage Art Party Los Angeles.

It all started earlier this year. While working the night shift at Bed, Bath & Beyond, producer/curator Ezra Croft had an epiphany: He should hold a Nicolas Cage-themed art show. »

Mel Brooks Recalls His First Mention in Variety in 1952

18 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Even the “2000 Year Old Man” had to start somewhere. Back in 1952, 26 year-old Mel Brooks was just another struggling comedy writer, penning sketches for a revue — albeit one backed by names like Milton Berle, Jimmy Durante and Eddie Cantor. “Curtain Going Up” had a two-week tryout in Philadelphia before a planned Broadway debut. Alas, the show never made it to the Great White Way, but the uber-talented Brooks certainly did. Again. And again. And again.

Do you remember seeing your first mention in Variety? 

At that point, I was so happy to get my name in Variety, even if it was just for a parking ticket! All my life, a mention in Variety, especially a good review of my shows on Broadway or of my films, has meant an awful lot. I was always very, very happy when I got a good review — and very angry when I got a bad review. »
