A Story of Children and Film review 'Mosaic chosen with masterly care'

3 April 2014 1:31 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Gentle and ruminative, this documentary from Mark Cousins takes a rich and clever look at how children appear on screen

This utterly beguiling and idiosyncratic cine-essay by critic and film-maker Mark Cousins is a personal journey through the subject of children on film. It was first shown at last year's Cannes film festival and is now on release here: a brilliant mosaic of clips, images and moments chosen with masterly flair, and accompanied by Cousins' own gentle, ruminative, almost murmured voiceover. Just as in his mighty television series, A Story of Film, Cousins dances nimbly between films old and new, cleverly intuits the connections, and digresses into the history of art, as well as into that of his own family.

A Story of Children and Film could be read as simply the story of Cousins himself, through film, and his own refusal to reproduce the cynical/knowing tone of modern grownup criticism. »

The HeyUGuys Interview: Terry Gilliam unravels The Zero Theorem

14 March 2014 5:45 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Before we start here’s a confession. I’m a fan of Terry Gilliam’s work. Unashamed, bordering on (but never becoming) an apologist. From the bedtime anarchy of Time Bandits to the dark satanic future of Brazil, from the dizzying false heights of Munchausen to finding myself washed up on the Tideland – each and every one of his films has connected with me, some inextricably so.

The more of them I saw, the more I became hooked on his dreamatic musings; a new Gilliam film is a big deal in my world. He was also my first film teacher with the BBC’s long forgotten series called The Last Machine taking in a whirlwind tour of the first century of cinema from sideshow contraption to documentarian to a gateway to other worlds. Gilliam knew cinema, and came across as a man possessed with a love of ideas and visual poetry. »

Film Review: ‘Trespassing Bergman’

19 February 2014 5:12 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Mixing awe and irreverence, “Trespassing Bergman” informatively and entertainingly explores the home, life, films and legacy of legendary Swedish auteur Ingmar Bergman with the help of other world-cinema heavyweights. Calling on filmmakers including Michael Haneke, Woody Allen, Martin Scorsese, John Landis, Lars von Trier, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, Claire Denis, Wes Craven, Takeshi Kitano Ang Lee and Zhang Yimou to discuss the impact that films such as “Summer With Monika,” “The Seventh Seal,” “Persona” and “Fanny and Alexander” had on their lives and careers, this cinephile’s delight will be catnip to global fests, broadcasters and distribs.

Jane Magnusson and Hynek Pallas’ docu combines previously unseen behind-the-scenes footage from the making of Bergman’s films, well-chosen clips and a chronology of his career with candid conversations with other filmmakers, some shot at Bergman’s remote Faro Island home and others at locations around the world. A playful tone is established early »

Tarik Saleh: ‘Film Saved My Life When I Was a Kid’

1 February 2014 9:36 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Swedish director, producer and journalist Tarik Saleh got his start in the early 1990s as one of his country’s most prominent graffiti artists. Since then, Saleh has gone on to co-direct documentaries including 2001’s “Sacrificio – Who Betrayed Che Guevara” and “Gitmo – The New Rules of War” in 2005. “Metropia,” the animated feature Saleh directed in 2009, premiered as the opening film at the critic week in Venice. Saleh is also a co-founder of the Swedish production company Atmo. His current thriller, “Tommy,” starring Ola Rapace and Lykke Li, switches gears as Saleh transitions from the docu format to fiction. Based on actual events, “Tommy” tells the story of a robbery at an airport and offers a more in-depth portrayal of the women in Sweden’s crime world. The flick will close the Goteborg Int’l film festival and bows in Swedish theaters in March.  Variety talked to Saleh during the festival. »

Blu-ray Release: Crimes and Misdemeanors

10 January 2014 2:55 PM, PST | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray Release Date: Feb. 11, 2014

Price: Blu-ray $29.95

Studio: Twilight Time

Woody Allen and Martin Landau star in Allen's Crimes and Misdemeanors.

Woody Allen’s (Blue Jasmine) masterful 1989 film Crimes and Misdemeanors makes its Blu-ray debut courtesy of Twilight Time.

A rare combination of character study, film noir and black comedy, the film is about an esteemed New York ophthalmologist (Martin Landau, Cleopatra) whose affair with a flight attendant (Anjelica Huston, The Grifters) puts the careful construct of his life in jeopardy.

As he contemplates a permanent solution to his problems, another story is weaved into the narrative, this one about another kind of moral crisis: a struggling documentary filmmaker (Allen) considers selling out by making a doc about a Hollywood jackass (Alan Alda, Tower Heist), with the situation further complicated by the appearance of an entrancing TV producer (Mia Farrow, Rosemary’s Baby).

Highlighted by cinematography from the incomparable Sven Nykvist »
