'Apocalypse Now', 'Reds' Cinematographer to Lens Woody Allen's 2016 Film

7 August 2015 2:14 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Earlier this week Brad reported on several casting details for Woody Allen's next film, which I can only assume will be released in the summer of 2016, and today more details emerge as Oscar-winning cinematographer Vittorio Storaro and other crew members have joined the project. Storaro is a three-time Oscar winner, taking home trophies for Apocalypse Now, Reds and The Last Emperor, and he was nominated a fourth time for his camera work on Dick Tracy. While he hasn't done much of note in recent years this still represents a pretty interesting pairing, especially considering one of Allen's fan sites, Woody Allen Pages, notes Allen's next film will be set in the 1930s. Also joining Allen's crew is production designer Santo Loquasto, who has worked on numerous other Allen productions, most recently lending his hand and eye to Allen's 2013 film Blue Jasmine and nominated for Oscars on three other Woody Allen productions (Zelig, »

Irrational Man – The Review

30 July 2015 5:02 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Review by Dane Marti

One of the reasons I love the work of Woody Allen is that he obviously thinks of cinema as an art form, intellectual and aesthetic. Allen attempts –and often succeeds in a magnificent way—in delving deeper into a visual tale. Sure, his films ordinarily are extremely entertaining, but I find that they always contain a bit more. ‘The Irrational Man’ is a good, solid example of a film that offers thoughtful and interesting surprises for film viewers.

Allen’s films, even when they are not completely successful, are always interesting—and I mean that word in a truly positive way.

The Story: A young, disheveled professor, Abe Lucas, played with angst and passion by Joaquin Phoenix, arrives at a prestigious eastern University. Although only in his thirties, Abe is already a legend with the local academic environment, women in particular. And he definitely reeks Existential angst, »

The 10 Best-Shot Films Of Woody Allen

16 July 2015 11:04 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

For a director who has worked with some of the greatest names in cinematography, it's relatively unusual to hear Woody Allen's films discussed in terms of their photography. With the eternal exception of "Manhattan" there's often the sense that his talents most clearly come through in the verbal, or performance side of his films: Allen's movies have won him three screenwriting Oscars and a Best Director statue, and he's been a veritable farm for Oscar-nominated performances (18 nominations, 7 wins across his filmography). But his films have netted only one sole Oscar nod for cinematography (Gordon Willis, for "Zelig"), and while the famously Oscar-averse Allen himself probably couldn't give a hoot, it does demonstrate how generally underrated his films are in this arena.   With "Irrational Man" in theaters this weekend (here's our review), there's another chance to assess a Woody Allen film on that basis and we'll leave it up to you to decide if you. »

Woody Allen’s Producer Jack Rollins Dies at 100

18 June 2015 5:46 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Longtime comedy producer-manager Jack Rollins, who handled Woody Allen, David Letterman, Billy Crystal, Robin Williams and Lenny Bruce, died Thursday at his home in Manhattan. He was 100.

Rollins, a native of Brooklyn, was a co-producer with the late Charles H. Joffe on many of Allen’s films. The duo managed many of the industry’s top comedy acts starting in the 1960s.

Rollins appeared briefly in Allen’s 1984 film, “Broadway Danny Rose,” in which Allen played a manager of a variety of strange acts — a character he loosely modeled on Rollins.

Rollins and Joffe had producing credits on all of Allen’s films between 1969 and 1993, including “Take the Money and Run,” “Annie Hall,” “Manhattan,” “Bananas,” Sleeper,” “Hannah and Her Sisters,” “Zelig,” “Radio Days” and “Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

Born as Jacob Rabinowitz in Brooklyn, he broke into the business after World War II as a Broadway producer, then founded a talent »

From Actor to "Action!", Exploring the Debuts of 19 Actors-Turned-Directors

21 April 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Over the course of film history, we've seen plenty of long-time actors step behind the camera to take up their directorial ambitions. Clint Eastwood did it. Mel Gibson did it. George Clooney did it. What do these three have in commonc Well, for starters, they are all men, so there's that. Further, they are all white, but more on that later. More to the point of the article, these men all eased into their directorial careers by starring in their respective debuts, using their presence on screen to help market their talents off it. And with his feature directorial effort The Water Diviner, which hits limited theaters this week, Russell Crowe is just the most recent addition to a growing list of actors who have decided to try their hand behind the camera. Like Eastwood, Gibson, and Clooney before him, the Best Actor winner stars in his first feature as director, »

The fantasist: The comic art of Woody Allen

24 January 2015 12:49 PM, PST | The Moving Arts Journal | See recent The Moving Arts Journal news »

Everyone knows Woody Allen. At least, everyone thinks they know Woody Allen. His plumage is easily identifiable: horn-rimmed glasses, baggy suit, wispy hair, kvetching demeanor, ironic sense of humor, acute fear of death. As is his habitat: New York City, though recently he has flown as far afield as London, Barcelona, and Paris. His likes are well known: Bergman, Dostoevsky, New Orleans jazz. So too his dislikes: spiders, cars, nature, Wagner records, the entire city of Los Angeles. Whether or not these traits represent the true Allen, who’s to say? It is impossible to tell, with Allen, where cinema ends and life begins, an obfuscation he readily encourages. In the late nineteen-seventies, disillusioned with the comedic success he’d found making such films as Sleeper (1973), Love and Death (1975), and Annie Hall (1977), he turned for darker territory with Stardust Memories (1980), a film in which, none too surprisingly, he plays a »
