Extended Snowden Clip Spotlights The Human Side Of Oliver Stone’s Tech Thriller

20 August 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The gloves are off in this new, extended clip for Snowden – and we’re not talking about the whistleblower’s crusade against the Nsa.

Instead, today’s all-new snippet shifts focus to the human element of Oliver Stone’s long-awaited drama, teeing up a political debate between Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Shailene Woodley on the grounds of the capital. It’s a nice tease, and already we’re sensing a natural dynamic developing between the film’s two leading stars.

Together, they’ll anchor Stone’s political thriller as Snowden and his girlfriend Lindsay Mills, who becomes drawn into a web of data mining and government surveillance once Gordon-Levitt’s lead casts a blinding light on the Nsa’s malpractice – classified information that featured the likes of Prism and more.

Turned down by every major studio due to its pressing subject matter, Oliver Stone’s Snowden will finally emerge into theaters »

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is Hunted in New Trailer For Oliver Stone’s ‘Snowden’

21 July 2016 3:23 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

History was made today as Oliver Stone had his first appearance at Comic-Con and, aside from waxing poetic about the dangers of Pokemon Go and how it could lead to totalitarianism, he brought with him a new trailer for his latest feature, Snowden. While we already have Laura Poitras‘ Oscar-winning Edward Snowden exposé Citizenfour, this one finds Joseph Gordon-Levitt playing the whistle-blower.

Diving into his time before the major events, when he served the country by enlisting in the United States Army Reserve and then working for the CIA, it marks Stone’s first time shooting digitally, rather fittingly. With a cast also including Shailene Woodley, Nicolas Cage, Melissa Leo, Zachary Quinto, Tom Wilkinson, Rhys Ifans, Joely Richardson, and Timothy Olyphant, check out the new trailer and poster below:

Michael Cimino, ‘Deer Hunter’ and ‘Heaven’s Gate’ Director, Dies at 77

2 July 2016 1:37 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Michael Cimino, who won Oscars as director and a producer of “The Deer Hunter” before “Heaven’s Gate” destroyed his career and sped up the demise of 60-year-old United Artists, has died. He was believed to be 77.

Cannes Film Festival director Thierry Fremaux tweeted the news Saturday, writing that he died in peace surrounded by those close to him and the two women who loved him. “We loved him too,” wrote Fremaux.

— Thierry Fremaux (@Thierryfremaux) July 2, 2016

His birthday is usually cited as Feb. 3, 1939, though many facts about Cimino’s life, including his birthdate, were shrouded in conflicting information. 

Cimino directed eight films in his career. His first film was 1974’s “Thunderbolt and Lightfoot”; his second was the 1978 Vietnam War masterpiece “The Deer Hunter,” which won five Academy Awards, »

NYC Weekend Watch: ‘Far from Vietnam,’ Warren Oates, Ken Jacobs & More

30 June 2016 8:23 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since any New York 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.

Metrograph

It’s a French New Wave take on America’s worst era — what else could you want? The great Far from Vietnam plays as part of “Welcome to Metrograph: A-z” on Saturday, along with Varda‘s Lion’s Love and Tsai‘s The Hole.

Why Oliver Stone Is Still Hopeful About The Power of Movies After The ‘Nightmare’ of Making ‘Snowden’

26 June 2016 11:49 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Oliver Stone would be the first person to tell you that the power of cinema is ephemeral — “beautiful ephemera,” in his own words, but ephemera nonetheless — but that doesn’t mean the filmmaker behind such landmark films as “JFK” and “Born on the Fourth of July” doesn’t also believe that movies can leave their mark on the world.

Stone is all over this year’s Nantucket Film Festival, where he was honored over the weekend with the festival’s prestigious Screenwriters Tribute Award. At the Saturday night event, Stone accepted his honor from fellow filmmaker Bennett Miller, before using his acceptance speech as a time to reflect on his career and what’s next.

It was a fine warmup for Sunday morning’s main event, during which Stone took to the stage of Nantucket High School to participate in an hour-long “In Their Shoes” chat as led by documentarian Eugene Jarecki. »

Durban: ‘Kalushi’ Tells Tale of South African Freedom Fighter

25 June 2016 3:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Celebrated as a hero of the anti-apartheid struggle, the late South African freedom fighter Solomon “Kalushi” Mahlangu has life-sized statues adorning city squares and a soccer stadium named in his honor. It’s only now, though, that his story has been told on the big screen, thanks to the feature-film debut of Mandla Dube, whose biopic “Kalushi” was a hit this week at the Durban Intl. Film Festival.

Eight years in the making, the movie, which traces the short and revolutionary life of Mahlangu before his execution by the apartheid government at the age of 23, has already been hailed as a “hugely important film” by a leading South African film critic.

For Dube, who once mooted telling Mahlangu’s story in a four-part TV series, “Kalushi” offers a chance to pay tribute to one of the iconic heroes of the liberation struggle on the “large canvas” he deserves.
