A Most Violent Year DVD Review

17 May 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: J.C. Chandor

Starring: Oscar Isaac, Jessica Chastain, David Oyelowo, Alessandro Nivola, Albert Brooks, Elyes Gabel

Cert: 15

Running Time: 120 mins

Features: Commentary with J.C. Chandor, Neal Dodson & Anna Gerb. Featurettes, Behind The Violence (Making Of), The Contagious Nature Of Violence (Director Interview), Conversations With Oscar Isaac & Jessica Chastain, Trailers/TV Spots, Deleted Scenes, Behind The Scenes Photos

Imagine if Sidney Lumet had directed The Long Good Friday. That instead of a blood-soaked gangster thriller about a man trying to better himself with guns and fists you had something more thoughtful, yet just as sinister. Writer/director J.C. Chandor’s third film takes the backdrop of New York at the outset of 1981 – the notorious year of the title – and uses it as context for the engrossing story of an entrepreneur trying to operate the cleanest way possible in the murkiest of environments.

Nicolas Cage: The Hollywood Flashback Interview

6 May 2015 3:03 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

It was August, 2005. I knocked on the double door at the Four Seasons. It opened almost immediately. "Hi, I'm Nic," he said, hand outstretched. Nicolas Cage wasn't who I expected him to be. Like all actors, he was smaller and trimmer in person than he appeared on-screen. Neatly dressed in an Armani suit, Cage also displayed none of the manic fervor in real life as had become his signature on-screen. He was thoughtful, well-spoken and incredibly literate in all seven arts. It's an infrequent experience that you leave an interview feeling you've just met someone that you could hang out with regularly, but I got that with Nic Cage, in spades. He was endlessly fascinating, but also kind of a regular guy. Another of my favorite chats I count myself lucky to have been part of.

Acteurism: Joel McCrea in "Barbary Coast"

27 April 2015 6:40 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

In 1935 director Howard Hawks had a reputation for directing fast action films that were shot like screwball comedies. Before the Hays code, he directed Paul Muni as an Al Capone persona for the “most violent picture” of the time, Scarface (1932). Films about violent sports and vehicles and the men in control of them also got the Hawks treatment with The Dawn Patrol (1930), The Crowd Roars (1932), and The Prizefighter and the Lady (1933). The tagline for that last one’s poster reads: “Girls! There’S A New Passion In Your Life!” Hawks’ strengths lie in that spectacle of unfettered action for the boys, star power for the girls. His marketing image had stepped out of genre pictures before with more straightforward dramas Tiger Shark (1932)and Today We Live (1933). In Twentieth Century (1934), Hawks even ventured into full screwball territory (I’d wager that the Code taking away his violent sensibilities may have something to do with this, »

Shia Labeouf Explains How His Sia Video Is Like Scarface

18 April 2015 10:17 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Earlier this week, the 14th annual Tribeca Film Festival welcomed none other than noted performance artist and rattail enthusiast Shia Labeouf, executive producer for Alma Har'el's new documentary Love True. Labeouf previously worked with Ha'rel on Sigur Rós's video for the song "Fjögur pianó," for which he was completely nude. More recently, he appeared as a mostly-naked, cage-fighting character in Sia's video for "Elastic Heart" — a performance that garnered a hefty amount of controversy. At a Q&A for Love True, Labeouf talked about the differences between his work with Sia and Ha'rel:i think the Sia one is more about aesthetics. It's performance gymnastics, the big crying scene, dance moves. It's cool but it's like Scarface, Al Pacino acting. Nothing against him, but there's a big difference between something that's presentational and representational. I think even Pacino would agree that his work is representational, whereas somebody like Joaquin Phoenix »

Box-Office Alternatives: Passion

16 April 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

Child 44 (2015) opens Friday and features one of the darkest plots of any Spring release opening wide in recent memory. Focusing on a string of unsolved child murders in soviet Russia, the grim mystery features the always-watchable Noomi Rapace as the film's female lead.

Since hitting it big with The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2009), Rapace has deservedly enjoyed a steady career in a variety of complex film roles. It's never anything but a pleasure seeing an actress of Rapace's talent at work, yet I can't help but notice that in so many of her projects, including Child 44, she is usually second fiddle to her male co-stars.

One of the few exceptions is Rapace's work alongside Rachel McAdams in Brian De Palma's sexually charged thriller, Passion (2012). After advertising executive Christine (McAdams) takes credit for an idea from her associate Isabel (Rapace), a personal and professional tug of war between the two women begins, »

The rise and fall of Hemdale

2 April 2015 3:34 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Hemdale became one of the largest indie studios of the 80s with films like The Terminator and Platoon. Ryan charts its turbulent history...

When Platoon won four Oscars in 1987, it marked not only a new chapter in Oliver Stone's career as a filmmaker, but also the end of a decade-long battle. Since the 1970s, Stone had been struggling to make his harrowing account of the horrors he'd seen firsthand as a soldier in the Vietnam conflict, but was famously turned down by every major studio in Hollywood.

Platoon, and Stone, finally found sanctuary at a small independent studio with a grand-sounding name: the Hemdale Film Corporation. It was Hemdale, and its co-founder John Daly, that had taken a chance on Stone, and when Platoon came out in 1986, the gamble proved to be a shrewd one: its $6m investment was covered by the first month's ticket sales, and the film »

Review: 'Man From Reno' Is Stellar Pulp Storytelling With A Twist

26 March 2015 3:33 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Dave Boyle’s “Man From Reno” is the type of film where alleyways are home offices, every bar matchbox has an unknown number inside, and if a character enters a bookshop, you better believe old issues of “True Detective” are hanging visibly in frame. Boyle, who previously made festival favorite “White on Rice," plunges his first genre entry into the annals of film noir. This is stellar pulp storytelling with a twist, blending fine performances from Ayako Fujitani (“Tokyo!”) and Pepe Serna (“Scarface”) with an evocative view of California’s Bay Area. Placed somewhere between “The Big Sleep” and “Chan is Missing” — Wayne Wang’s 1982 independent neo-noir about two Chinese taxi drivers scouring San Francisco for stolen money — the film shares aspects of Wang’s take on the genre. Both films explore the coastal city from a little-seen perspective, here delving into its Japanese-American community with a unique eye. 'Reno' »

Watch: Supercut Takes A Bird's Eye View Of Brian De Palma's Overhead Shots

25 March 2015 11:39 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Three minutes is hardly any time at all to spend analyzing the work of a master director such as Brian De Palma, so if you have it to spare, this supercut from Vimeo user movement_of_time is well worth the 180 seconds. The video is designed to prove a point about one of De Palma’s preferred camera techniques. Namely, “Brian De Palma is one of those directors who have their own special well recognizable style. And exactly this style he realizes using certain techniques, one of which is ‘view from above’. This method can be seen, if not in all his movies, then in the vast majority. ‘View from above’ is a shot taken from the top distant point, which shows the specific details of the current event. Moreover ‘view from above’ is a method of certain removal from the space of the movie and the voyeurism form that »

How Al Pacino Feels About The Scarface Remake

19 March 2015 7:46 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Along with Michael Corleone from the Godfather movies and Frank Serpico from Serpico, Tony Montana is easily one of Al Pacino's most iconic roles - but apparently he really doesn't care if any actor goes out to try and one-up him in the upcoming Scarface remake. Following up on the news from earlier this week that screenwriter Jonathan Herman is working on the latest version of Scarface, The Hollywood Reporter caught up with Al Pacino at the New York Premiere of his new film Danny Collins and asked him what he thought of the upcoming project. Pacino reportedly responded quickly, saying that he's fine with the developing re-do, and that he actually finds the studio's plans to be "interesting." He added, It's part of what we do. We remake things. I may remake a movie I saw recently. I can't say what it is. It's about 50 years old. Of course, »

The Scarface remake is fine with Al Pacino, "It's what we do" he says

19 March 2015 12:01 PM, PDT | | See recent JoBlo news »

While I hardly consider Scarface to be my favourite gangster film (that would be Goodfellas) I can appreciate its place in film history and its impact on the genre. So when news broke yesterday of the proposed Scarface remake taking a step closer to reality, I was left wondering…why? One person who actually seems to be on board with the idea of a remake is Al Pacino himself. At the New York premiere of his new film, Danny Collins, The Hollywood Reporter asked Pacino what he »

Scarface Remake Hires Straight Outta Compton Writer

19 March 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | | See recent Worst Previews news »

Universal Pictures has been working on a "Scarface" remake for a while. And now comes word that the studio just hired "Straight Outta Compton" writer Jonathan Herman to do a rewrite. Paul Attanasio and David Ayer wrote previous drafts of the film, which will be a new and original take on the immigrant story, which spawned films in 1932 and 1983. The 1983 version tells the story of Cuban refugee Tony Montana (Al Pacino) who arrives in Miami with nothing and rises up to become a powerful drug kingpin. The new film will be set in Los Angeles and explore an immigrant's rise in the criminal underworld. Pablo Larrain will direct. »

Scarface remake presses ahead, writer found

18 March 2015 11:47 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The latest Scarface remake lands a fresh writer, as Universal presses on with the project...

It's not a new revelation that a remake of Scarface is in the works in the Hollywood system, but it is a project we'd heard little of in recent times. We'd sort of thought that this one had died a quiet death.

But it hasn't. Accepting that Brian De Palma's 1983 Scarface, starring Al Pacino, was in itself a remake of Howard Hawks' 1932 film, there's another take on the story coming. This one will relocate events to present day, centring on a Mexican character in Los Angeles. The lead character will still be called Tony, but, apparently, will have a different surname this time.

Scarface has a director attached, in the form of Pablo Larrain (who helmed No), and previously, the screenplay had been tackled by David Ayer and Paul Attanasio. However, Universal Pictures »

'Scarface' Remake Gets 'Straight Outta Compton' Writer

18 March 2015 9:55 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Universal Pictures has brought on Straight Outta Compton screenwriter Jonathan Herman to rewrite the script for their Scarface remake. We haven't heard anything about the remake since March 2014, when the project brought on director Pablo Larra&#237n (No). The screenplay was previously worked on by Paul Attanasio (The Fighter) and David Ayer (Suicide Squad).

The story will follow a criminal's rise through the Los Angeles criminal underworld, much like the first two movies, but with a different setting. The original 1932 Scarface starring Paul Muni as Tony Camonte was set in Chicago, while the 1983 Scarface remake followed Al Pacino's Tony Montana as he rose to become one of Miami's most feared criminal leaders. No other details about this new version were given, aside from the Los Angeles setting.

Martin Bregman, who produced the 1983 remake, is producing with Global Produce's Marc Shmuger and Bluegrass Films' Scott Stuber and Dylan Clark. »

Scarface Remake Says Hello To Scribe Jonathan Herman

18 March 2015 9:46 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Gangster classic Scarface is getting a reboot over at Universal, and audiences are today one step closer to again saying hello to Tony Montana’s little friend now that the studio has tapped Straight Outta Compton screenwriter Jonathan Herman to script.

Herman will be working from previous drafts by Paul Attanasio and Suicide Squad director David Ayer, both of whom approached the remake as a fresh, new take on the immigrant-centric story. Though the 1983 pic, also from Universal, focused on Cuban refugee Tony Montana (Al Pacino), who ended up in 1980s Miami with nothing but fought his way to the top of a drug empire, the new Scarface has been moved to Los Angeles in hopes of setting the film apart. Once again, though, the remake will tell the story of an immigrant who became a criminal kingpin.

Universal has been relying on Herman heavily of late. In addition to »
