'Fight Club' Facts: 15 Things You Didn't Know About the David Fincher Classic

15 October 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Let's break the first rule of "Fight Club" and talk about "Fight Club." In fact, people haven't stopped talking about it since it was released 15 years ago this week, on October 15, 1999.

David Fincher's adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk's satirical novel, starring Brad Pitt and Edward Norton, continues to fascinate with its portrayal of masculinity in crisis, its cathartic bare-knuckle violence, its anarchic critique of capitalism (and its humanist critique of that critique), and its mind-bending third-act plot twist that throws Norton's entire narration into doubt. It's a movie that makes you feel the same rush the characters feel, then makes you question yourself for enjoying that rush.

Despite endless analysis and late-night dorm-room bull sessions, there's still plenty about "Fight Club" that you may not know, from who almost played Tyler Durden to how they gave Meat Loaf his "bitch tits." Read on, and share these items with your single-serving friends. »

Which is the greatest British film in history? No one seems to be in agreement

11 October 2014 5:32 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Best British movies of all time? (Image: a young Michael Caine in 'Get Carter') Ten years ago, Get Carter, starring Michael Caine as a dangerous-looking London gangster (see photo above), was selected as the United Kingdom's very best movie of all time according to 25 British film critics polled by Total Film magazine. To say that Mike Hodges' 1971 thriller was a surprising choice would be an understatement. I mean, not a David Lean epic or an early Alfred Hitchcock thriller? What a difference ten years make. On Total Film's 2014 list, published last May, Get Carter was no. 44 among the magazine's Top 50 best British movies of all time. How could that be? Well, first of all, people would be very naive if they took such lists seriously, whether we're talking Total Film, the British Film Institute, or, to keep things British, Sight & Sound magazine. Second, whereas Total Film's 2004 list was the result of a 25-critic consensus, »

Why I'd like to be Kate Beckinsale in Cold Comfort Farm

15 July 2014 11:30 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

As Flora Poste, she's unfazed by all manner of bucolic tribulation and, drawing on her 'higher common sense', she simply sorts it all out. Who wouldn't want to be so perfectly phlegmatic?

Why I'd like to be Nausicaä in Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind

Why I'd like to be ... Julian Sands in A Room With a View

Why I'd like to be Hugo Weaving in The Matrix

Procrastination isn't my bag. I hanker after swift decisions, clear direction and a strong dose of gumption. So perhaps it's not surprising that up there on my movie pedestal are a collection of characters that cut to the chase. That two of these are essentially homicidal maniacs is, I assure you, simply an unfortunate coincidence and obviously not a characteristic to be admired. But their glorious efficiency most certainly is.

My Beautiful Laundrette

20 June 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

[With Gay Pride festivities happening in various cities in June, we'll take a look back at a few gay classics. Here's Matthew Eng (who you'll remember from a couple of American Hustle pieces) on an Oscar nominated 80s classic - Editor]

Initially envisioned as a low-budget, Channel 4 telefilm, My Beautiful Laundrette cheekily challenged the Western moviegoing market upon its U.K. and U.S. releases in, respectively, 1985 and ’86. It became an out-of-nowhere arthouse hit, all while ironically embracing and blending a distinctive, regional-specific grouping of Thatcher-era South Londoners who fall under social categorizations normally left discrete or disregarded in modern-day moviemaking, both then and now. In the film, Omar (Gordon Warnecke), a young, business-minded Pakistani-Brit, sets out to renovate his uncle’s dreary laundrette into a clothes-cleaning arcade, a luxury laundrette “as big as the Ritz.” To do this, Omar recruits Johnny, his white former classmate and one-time lover, resulting in all the charged, complicated power shifts that would inevitably stem from a South Asian British man employing his former skinhead ex-boyfriend in Thatcherite England.

Arguably the film’s greatest claim to fame is that the smirking, blonde-streaked, and neck-licking »

Why the British film industry is not thriving | Terry Ilott

3 March 2014 6:40 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

There's an opportunity for British film to flourish, writes ex Hammer Films chief Terry Ilott, but all will be lost if we don't sharpen our business skills

The successes of 12 Years a Slave and Gravity at this year's Oscars have given rise to self-satisfied crowing in sections of the British media. One could be forgiven for thinking that British film was in good health. But while the UK remains awash with astonishing talent both in front of and behind the camera, and while we continue to enjoy a patrimony that comprises a treasure chest of stories we can plunder, the fact remains that over the past thirty years it has become almost impossible to make even a decent living – never mind build a business or a career – in the British film industry.

The industry sucks the creative life out of our best creative talents, then throws them over the side, »

Best of Netflix Streaming: Romance Movies

14 February 2014 2:00 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Netflix Streaming can be overwhelming — so many options, yet so hard to actually weed through — and we here at Vulture have tried to make it easier for you with our weekly and monthly streaming video roundups. Now that Valentine's Day is upon us, it seemed appropriate to weed through the love-tinged movies currently available to stream on Netflix and point out some can't miss titles. Read on:A Room With a View: Let's start with the proper nouns: Maggie Smith, Judi Dench, Daniel Day-Lewis, Helena Bonham-Carter (though you'll barely recognize her, she's so young), Merchant-Ivory, Italy. Is that not enough? Okay: There's a non-sex scene in a field that is hotter than basically anything you can find on HBO. It is the definition of swoon. Punch-Drunk Love: "Many people hate it," writes Vulture critic David Edelstein about this Paul Thomas Anderson movie in our recent list of 25 great »

Streaming Romantic Movies For Valentine's Day

13 February 2014 7:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Valentine's Day is upon us, and if you have young kids at home and/or forgot to secure a sitter, you're probably going to have to celebrate at home. Perhaps you've been together a while and don't get caught up in the dinner and gifts revelry any more (if ever!). We hear you, and we've got some great recommendations for a lovely romantic movie night after the kids have gone to bed.

For couples who love old-school rom-coms: "You've Got Mail"

There was something magical about Meg Ryan in her Hollywood heyday, and she was once quite deservedly the queen of romantic comedies. Although we adore "When Harry Met Sally" and "Sleepless in Seattle," this remake of "The Shop Around the Corner" combines our love of New York-set romances, all things Tom Hanks, and the allure of bookstores.

British Costume Designers: A Migration of Talent

13 January 2014 11:26 PM, PST | Clothes on Film | See recent Clothes on Film news »

From Chris Laverty’s regular column ‘Fabric of Cinema’ for Arts Illustrated magazine, here is an abridged version of the most recently published essay ‘A Migration of Talent’.

The current issue of Arts Illustrated focuses on those that have moved across geographical boundaries to expand the scope of their work. It has long been the norm for costume designers from the UK to relocate, not necessarily permanently, to Hollywood. Their careers have been forged by the demands of the business they compete in. But what would have happened if, say, Sandy Powell (Shakespeare in Love), or Joanna Johnston (Who Framed Roger Rabbit) had never worked beyond these shores? How would their art have been affected? Could they have been as successful?

Below is an extract from A Migration of Talent. Purchase a copy of Arts Illustrated magazine, either hard copy or online, for the full essay, featuring interview quotes from »
