Remember Gandhi? Baby Jake? Harlow?

7 June 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

On this day in movie related history...

1893 Mahatma Gandhi committed his first act of civil disobedience refusing to move from a whites only first class section of a train. He had a valid ticket, after all. He was forcibly ejected in South Africa's Pietermaritzburg Railway Station. This event and many others from his nonviolent revolution were reenacted by Ben Kingsley in Gandhi, Oscar's Best Picture of 1982. (You can cover a lot with a running time of 191 minutes.)

1909 Jessica Tandy is born. Steals Michelle Pfeiffer's Oscar 80 years, 9 months, and 19 days later.

1917 Rat Pack royalty Dean Martin is born. Centennial next year.

1928 Perpetually underappreciated and totally awesome director James Ivory is born. Later makes masterpieces like A Room With a View and Howards End. Where's his Honorary Oscar, AMPAS? He's 87 people get on that immediately. 

1937 The original Bombshell, Jean Harlow dies suddenly at the peak of her fame at the age of 26. Where's her biopic? »

Ben Kingsley: why I now know that women make the best directors of men

4 June 2016 7:04 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The veteran actor’s new film, Learning to Drive, is directed, written and produced by women. He explains why it’s an experience he’s keen to repeat

He has won world renown – and an Oscar – for his roles in films by some of the greatest male directors. Now Sir Ben Kingsley, star of Gandhi and Sexy Beast, says he is determined to produce and star in movies directed by women – because they are better at understanding male vulnerability.

Drive-In Dust Offs: Magic (1978)

14 May 2016 11:25 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

It’s the eyes, isn’t it? Wide like saucers and twice as deep, they’re impenetrable. And the wooden leer of the wide open maw betrays them, separate and with its own agenda. Of course I’m referring to ventriloquist dummies, and the eerie spell they cast upon the viewer. The horror viewer, specifically; we’ll seek out anything that gives us a sense of unease. Which brings us to Richard Attenborough’s Magic (1978), a wryly creepy tale of encroaching madness and showbiz folly. (Aren’t they the same thing?)

Produced by 20th Century Fox and Joseph E. Levine (Carnal Knowledge) and released by 20th Century, Magic opened in November of ’78 in the U.S. and rolled out to the rest of the world in early ’79. Grossing nearly $24 million U.S. against a $7 million budget with positive reviews to boot, Magic was an unqualified success – with one of the »

The 80 Best-Directed Films, According to the Directors Guild of America

3 May 2016 6:59 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With editors and cinematographers chiming in on the best examples of their craft in cinema history, it’s now time for directors to have a say. To celebrate the 80th anniversary of the Directors Guild of America, they’ve conducted a poll for their members when it comes to the 80 greatest directorial achievements in feature films since the organization’s founding in 1936. With 2,189 members participating, the top pick went to Francis Ford Coppola for The Godfather, one of three films from the director making the top 10.

Even with films from nonmembers being eligible, the male-dominated, America-centric choices are a bit shameful (Kathryn Bigelow is the only female director on the list, and the first foreign film doesn’t show up until number 26), but not necessarily surprising when one looks at the make-up of its membership. As with any list, there’s bound to be disagreements (Birdman besting The Bicycle Thief, »

“Dev Patel Owns Ramanujan The Way Kingsley Owned Gandhi” – Subhash K Jha reviews The Man Who Knew Infinity

30 April 2016 4:11 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

The Man Who Knew Infinity

Starring Jeremy Irons, Dev PatelDevika Bhise

Written & Directed by Matthew Brown

Rating: *****(5 Stars)

How does one describe, let alone cinematically circumscribe ,the life of an unvarnished genius like Srinivasa Ramanujan who at the at the age of 32 had burnt himself out, scorned, smothered and snuffed out by his own unplumbed brilliance.

This is not an easy story to tell. Director Matthew Brown wisely follows the course set down by Robert Kanigel’s biography of Ramanujan. As seen through the prism of poignant artlessness and a  belief that the mathematical genius flows from the will of God, true to the somber end to  its unrehearsed  design, the narrative seems to flow almost by  divine ordinance.

The story of a simple  human being with a complex mathematical mind that he failed to explain to himself, let alone to the world which marveled at his prodigious skills, »

Saeed Jaffrey remembered at the Oscars this year

29 February 2016 2:41 AM, PST | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Whenever there is a mention of legendary actors of Bollywood, the name of (late) Saeed Jaffrey will surely figure one amongst the top. His death last year has definitely left a vacuum.

Sheila Sim obituary

21 January 2016 7:24 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Actor who starred as Mollie Ralston in The Mousetrap with her husband, Richard Attenborough

When Agatha Christie’s murder mystery play The Mousetrap opened in London in 1952, the actor Sheila Sim, who has died aged 93, had doubts about its ability to last for six months. But the fact that she could wait until just before its 50th anniversary before publicly confessing those doubts, at a lunch at the Savoy hotel with 300 other actors who had appeared in the play, showed them to be unfounded. By then it had long passed its 20,000th performance, and it is still going strong, as the world’s longest initial run of a play.

Through starring as Mollie Ralston, owner of the snowed-in Monkswell Manor, Sim set the seal on her growing reputation as an actor. Her husband, Richard Attenborough, co-starred in the play as Detective Sergeant Trotter, who arrives on a pair of skis, »
