‘Moscow On the Hudson’ and ‘Down and Out In Beverly Hills’: A Perfect Double-Feature For July 4th Weekend

2 July 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

If you’re looking for some good movies to watch this three-day holiday weekend, I’d like to suggest a double shot of Paul Mazursky, the under-appreciated filmmaker who died Monday. A whole marathon of his work is in order, really, especially if you’ve never seen Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice or Harry and Tonto or Next Stop, Greenwich Village (come at least for Bill Murray’s first film appearance and a great early Christopher Walken) or An Unmarried Woman (a terrific feminist classic) or the crazy Alex in Wonderland (come at least for the Fellini scene). But two of my favorites are his big releases in the mid-80s, Moscow on the Hudson and Down and Out in Beverly Hills, and I think they make a perfect double feature for Independence Day. First up is Moscow on the Hudson, which in early 1984 led the wave of comedies involving immigration and migration to New York City (see »

Paul Mazursky, Director/Actor/Writer, Dead At Age 84

Mazursky and Jill Clayburgh on the set of An Unmarried Woman (1978)

Paul Mazursky, one of the most acclaimed and prolific filmmakers to come of age in the 1960s, has died from cardiac arrest. He was 84 years old. Mazursky originally worked as an actor in films, appearing in such movies as "The Blackboard Jungle". However, with the revolutionary freedoms that came into movie-making in the mid-1960s, Mazursky turned to screenwriting and directing. His first screenplay was for the Peter Sellers hippie comedy "I Love You, Alice B. Toklas!". He made his directorial debut with "Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice" in 1969. The film starred Natalie Wood and Robert Culp as a hip, privileged couple who contemplate wife swapping with their best friends, played by Elliott Gould and Dyan Cannon, both of whom rose to stardom because of the film. Like most of Mazursky's films, the movie viewed social significant issues- in this case, »

Director Paul Mazursky Dead at 84

2 July 2014 9:52 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

He was a visionary in terms of independent filmmaking with a series of pioneering works beginning  in the late ’60s. Sometimes referred to as the ‘Woody Allen of the West Coast’, Paul Mazursky was nominated for five Oscars, mostly for his writing. Bob & Carol & Ted &  Alice, Harry And Tonto (which won an Oscar for star Art Carny in 1974), Moscow On The Hudson, An Unmarried Woman, Down And Out In Beverly Hills were among his many accomplishments. His last significant work was Enemies A Love Story in 1989, the story of a Holocaust survivor who finds himself involved with three women – his current wife, a passionate married woman, and his long-vanished wife whom he thought was killed during the war. Mazursky has spent the last couple of decades acting in small roles, but there was a time when he was considered one of the most important filmmakers working, and for good reason. »

Variety’s Scott Foundas Remembers Paul Mazursky: A Poetic Farceur of American Lives

1 July 2014 10:34 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Are you happy?” the woman asks her husband midway through Paul Mazursky’s “Blume in Love” (1973), to which he replies, “I’m just not miserable.” It is a flashback to earlier, relatively happier times in the busted-up marriage of the divorce lawyer Blume (George Segal) and his wife, Nina (Susan Anspach). But one can find the same scene or its close equivalent in most of Mazursky’s 15 feature films, which time and again centered on small-time American dreamers striving to feel a little less miserable in their lives.

The time was the early 1970s — that much-mythologized moment in Hollywood cinema — and Mazursky was among the directors whose work most embraced the new personal and sexual freedoms then taking hold in American culture and American movies. Divorce and adultery were laissez-faire subjects in his films when they were still taboo around the water cooler. Four years before “Blume,” his debut feature, »

'Unmarried Woman' director Paul Mazursky dies at 84

1 July 2014 12:16 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Filmmaker Paul Mazursky, the five-time Oscar nominee most famous for films such as "Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice," "Down and Out in Beverly Hills" and "An Unmarried Woman," has passed away. According to a family spokesperson, he died of pulmonary cardiac arrest Monday in Los Angeles. He was 84. Mazursky's last theatrical release came nearly 20 years ago with the Chazz Palminteri adaptation "Faithful" but he has maintained a guest actor presence in film and television ever since. (And before -- in fact, a young Mazursky can be seen all the way back in Stanley Kubrick's 1953 film "Fear and Desire.") Younger audiences may know him as Norm from HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm" or his appearances on ABC's "Once and Again," but he established a long and distinguished career writing and directing relationship dramas and comedies and had been a singular voice throughout. Four of Mazursky's five Oscar nominations came for his work on the page. »

Paul Mazursky, Director of ‘Unmarried Woman,’ Dies at 84

1 July 2014 11:55 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Performer-turned-writer/director Paul Mazursky, who was Oscar-nommed five times and helmed hit movies including “Bob and Carol and Ted and Alice” and “An Unmarried Woman,” has died. He was 84. Mazursky died of cardiac arrest Monday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

While his most significant films as a director came several decades ago, he returned to acting on TV in later years, playing Norm on “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and appearing on “The Sopranos” and on ABC drama “Once and Again” as Sela Ward’s father.

Mazursky at his best captured the spirit of the late ’60s and the ’70s, when the American moral climate was turned on its head. His films entertainingly explored such weighty issues as marital fidelity, the merits of psychological therapy and modern divorce: “Bob and Ted,” starring Robert Culp and Natalie Wood as a “liberated” married couple; “Blume in Love,” starring George Segal and Susan Anspach »

Paul Mazursky Blazes Trails With Compassion

29 January 2014 4:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When a young Paul Mazursky blazed onto the screen playing a vicious delinquent in the revolutionary “Blackboard Jungle,” no one could have anticipated he would carve further trails during a distinguished screenwriting career.

“Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice” and “Blume in Love” raised early clarion calls for onscreen sexual frankness. Then, while Hollywood was going youth crazy, the exquisite “Harry and Tonto” eloquently argued for the essential worth of the senior citizen. Millions of women of a certain age still cite “An Unmarried Woman” as the ’70s seminal cinematic report on their struggle for personhood. And no film has better dramatized the effect of the Holocaust on its survivors than the beautiful “Enemies, a Love Story.”

A classical humanist in the Jean Renoir tradition, Mazursky even adapted the French genius’s “Boudu Saved From Drowning” into “Down and Out in Beverly Hills,” still arguably the finest portrait of industryites in extremis. »
