NYC Weekend Watch: Raúl Ruiz, Christmas, Pedro Almodóvar & More

1 December 2016 2:23 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since any New York City cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

Film Society of Lincoln Center

The great Portuguese filmmaker Raúl Ruiz is finally being given the retrospective treatment – and this is only the first part.

7 Anime Titles That Would Make Great Live Action Movies

9 September 2016 10:22 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Hollywood loves to adapt old films and TV shows into new, rebooted versions. Occasionally, they look to Japanese anime for inspiration, such as with Astro Boy, Dragon BallSpeed Racer, and the upcoming Ghost in the Shell. There are many anime projects that would make for excellent movies, if they were done right. Here are seven works of anime that have the potential to be big hits as live-action Hollywood films.

The popular anime Ghost in the Shell is currently being made into a live action film. The inspiration for Pacific Rim came from the trend of anime giant robot shows. Firefly/Serenity was inspired by the anime Cowboy Bebop. Anime (or anime inspired) adaptations have been hit-and-miss (more miss than hit, actually) but we think the following films could make great film franchises, if Hollywood got them right.

Akira: This ground-breaking film is responsible for the American anime craze of the 1990s. »

Go Behind-the-Scenes of Studio Ghibli’s Detailed Animation Process

4 August 2016 7:50 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Anyone familiar with the works of Hayao Miyazaki knows that Studio Ghibli’s films are marked by painstaking visual detail. From the sight of wind rustling every individual blade of grass in a meadow to the shot of a room, illuminated by sunlight, in which every object casts a shadow, the meticulousness of Ghibli’s artwork has secured the studio’s reputation for being one of the world’s leading animators. As such, it is a staggering thought that classics such as My Neighbor Totoro and Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind were actually constructed with even more artistic assiduousness than we have given them credit for — and yet a new interview with former Ghibli producer Hirokatsu Kihara demonstrates precisely this.

In a series of videos containing excerpts from the interview, Hirokatsu is shown explaining various intricacies of Ghibli’s artwork that likely go unnoticed by the casual viewer. »

Studio Ghibli: Watch A Two-Hour Concert Of Their Greatest Film Scores Conducted by Joe Hisaishi

20 July 2016 10:25 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Since 1985, the Japanese animation studio Studio Ghibli is known for producing some of the most critically acclaimed, highest-quality animated films. Their output includes the films of Hayao Miyazaki, whose films like “My Neighbor Totoro” and “Spirited Away” have entered the cultural consciousness, as well as work by director Isao Takahta, whose most recent film “The Tale of the Princess Kaguya” was recently nominated for an Oscar. Studio Ghibli’s dedicated approach towards their craft promises the best in animation, but one element of their films that goes largely unnoticed are their scores.

In 2009, Joe Hisaishi, composer of a majority of Ghibli films, held a concert to celebrate the release of Miyazaki’s “Ponyo” and the 25 years of collaboration between the two ever since 1984’s “Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind,” whose success led to the creation of Ghibli. »

7 Unforgettable Creations From the Mind of Hayao Miyazaki

5 January 2016 9:30 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Hayao Miyazaki Lines Up First Official Project in Retirement The Ohmu, "Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind" (1984)Any list devoted to the creations of Hayao Miyazaki is bound to be shortsighted, since just one of his features could produce a list with over a dozen entries. Take his dazzling second feature, "Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind," which features no shortage of memorable creations, most charmingly the fox-squirrel sidekick Teto. But there's always been something about the menacing design of the Ohmu that has given the movie its impressive visual wonder. These gigantic, insect-like creatures are at the center of the film's conflict, as Nausicaä tries to find a way to protect them from being extinct by the humans. Despite their terrifying design, the Ohmu are relatively peaceful and compassionate, only becoming enraged and dangerous when scared or in need of survival.
