Cinema’s Greatest Villains: The 1990′s

11 August 2013 3:40 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Villains have always been and will always be some of the most fascinating and memorable characters in the world of genre film.  Here we will take a look at the greatest villains of cinema from the 1990’s.

The criteria for this article is the same as in my previous articles Cinema’s Greatest Villains: The 1970’s and Cinema’s Greatest Villains: The 1980’s: the villains must be from live-action films-no animated features-and must pose some type of direct of indirect lethal threat.  The villains can either be individuals or small groups that act as one unit.

The villains must be human or human in appearance.   Also, individuals that are the central protagonists/antiheroes of their respective films were excluded.

Inside Mann: William Goldenberg talks about Heat

17 April 2013 5:32 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Trevor Hogg chats with Academy Award winner William Goldenberg about the nervousness and excitement he experienced while collaborating with Michael Mann for the first time.... 

“Michael [Mann] is the most meticulous director I have ever worked with to the point of obsession,” states William Goldenberg who has collaborated with Ben Affleck (Gone Baby Gone, Argo), Kathryn Bigelow (Zero Dark Thirty), Gary Ross (Seabiscuit, Pleasantville) and Michael Bay (Transformers: Dark of the Moon).  “When we did The Insider [1999] we shot in almost every location where the actual event happened.  He would want to make sure down to what tie, ring or watch the actors had on; it is complete authenticity at any price.”  Goldenberg is impressed by the ability of Mann to have the stamina and wherewithal to write and director while still having the energy to pay attention to detail.  “When Michael watches dailies he sits with a tape or digital »
