CAFÉ Society – Review

28 July 2016 4:37 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Woody Allen narrates CAFÉ Society, his 47th film and at age 80, his voice is sounding sadly geezerish.  Set in the mid-1930’s, CAFÉ Society has a cool period soundtrack, an older man courting a much younger woman, a Jewish family kibitzing around the dinner table, quotable dialog on love and life, and a neurotic Jewish hero channeling a much younger Woody. In other words, all the elements of a great Woody Allen film. It also has Vittorio Storaro’s rapturous cinematography (a Woody first) and a terrific and complex central performance from Jesse Eisenberg. CAFÉ Society is the most romantic Woody since Annie Hall and one of his best.

Leaving his (very) Jewish family back in the Bronx, young Bobby Dorfman (Jesse Eisenberg) heads west to “learn the movie business” from his Uncle Phil (Steve Carell), a bigtime Hollywood talent agent. Phil assigns his captivating, but romantically unavailable, secretary Vonnie »

Woody Allen: A Career in 20 Hilarious, Brilliant Lines

13 July 2016 9:17 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

This Friday, Café Society, the latest release from writer/director/comic godhead Woody Allen, waltzes into theaters — the 47th feature Allen has directed over a career spanning 50 years. (Yes, we're counting New York Stories.) He's had box-office successes and outright bombs, Oscar-winning masterpieces and critically panned duds. But regardless of his movies' receptions (and the reoccurring rumors about his personal life), he's managed to pump out a film a year with impressive regularity. Some key elements have stayed the same — once a jazz clarinet slinks onto the soundtrack, audiences know exactly who they're dealing with. »

Watch: 8-Minute Video Essay On The ‘Blinding Moral Gaze’ In Woody Allen’s ‘Crimes And Misdemeanors’

24 June 2016 1:50 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Woody Allen loves to toy with the ideas of his heroes and contemporaries, and in 1989’s “Crimes and Misdemeanors” he turned to one of the greatest novelists ever to exist, Fyodor Dostoevsky. The author’s finest work (in this author’s humble opinion) and a must-read for any literati or cinephile alike, “Crime and Punishment,” was Allen’s specific […]

The Nihilism of Woody Allen’s ‘Crimes and Misdemeanors’

23 June 2016 1:40 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The themes and ironies of Woody Allen’s cynical 1989 Crimes and Misdemeanors have been probed in a new video essay by Digging Deeper. Following the lives of a documentary filmmaker (Allen) and ophthalmologist (Martin Landau) living in New York, the film is a darkly comic meditation on faith, hope, and beliefs. The essay discusses the irony in the reaffirmation of God’s power by Landau’s Judah, how a holder of belief can be proven to be mistaken, and how the film itself subverts the book it is loosely based upon by not punishing its characters for their crimes.

It also explores the understanding by some of cinema as objective truth, and how in reality it is a flawed gaze no more accurate than those of a higher power. Of a particularly interesting note is the essayists dissection of the use of glasses in the film — as a method of seeing, »

Ask Nathaniel

Time for another Q&A. Ask away in the comments and I'll choose 10 to answer tomorrow evening. Let's have a loose animal theme this week. Between my ongoing sick cat drama at home and the movies (jungle book coming soon) we're feeling zoological.

Programming note: Requested Crimes and Misdemeanors (1989) revisit will happen April 20th. Sorry for delay.

The month began with final thoughts on last year's Oscars (yes, those were the 2015 Oscars no matter what search engines, IMDb, and the web say!) and the final podcast of the season.

Seymour: An Introduction review – wisdom in a minor key

24 March 2016 2:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Ethan Hawke’s directorial debut profiles the wit and wisdom of pianist and teacher Seymour Bernstein

Actor and writer Ethan Hawke makes his (somewhat overdue) directorial debut with a documentary that, despite its title, is nothing to do with Jd Salinger: instead, it’s an admiringly respectful profile of former concert pianist Seymour Bernstein, who now devotes his time to teaching. Hawke’s interest in Bernstein – a gentle, owlish figure in his late 80s – doesn’t seem to be specifically musical, but more as a repository of life-manual wisdom for those who, like Hawke, are trying to live the artistic existence. (Though few are as confounded by matinee-idol looks and successful acting careers as Hawke is.) This film makes for a pleasant, engaging experience, with Bernstein coming across rather like Louis Levy, the subject of Clifford Stern’s film in Woody Allen’s Crimes and Misdemeanors, complete with donnish American-Yiddish accent. »

NYC Weekend Watch: Metrograph, Jerry Lewis, Stan Brakhage, ‘Late Spring’ & More

3 March 2016 5:48 PM, PST | 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

The most exciting theater to hit New York in years opens today. They’ll begin with The Purple Rose of Cairo and Taxi Driver on Friday. Saturday and Sunday unbelievably packed, the schedule including The Spirit of the Beehive, Vivre Sa Vie, The Long Day Closes, Femme Fatale, Goodbye, Dragon Inn, and Noah Baumbach‘s »
