Ranked: Tom Waits Albums from Worst to Best

25 October 2011 | Nerve | See recent Nerve news »

AudioPlayer.setup("", { width: 350 }); Ranked: Tom Waits Albums from Worst to Best In honor of Tom Waits' new album, Bad As Me, we take a look at music's patron saint of weird. by Alex Heigl Tom Waits occupies a beautifully twisted spot in American music: his meandering path from boozy bohemian jazzbo to elder statesman of old-world Americana is compelling and cinematic. It is with a fan's reverence I take on the daunting task of assessing that journey, in honor of his new album, Bad As Me. (As per Nerve convention, I've excluded compilations and live albums.) 19. Night on Earth, 1992 Waits' soundtrack to Jim Jarmusch's Night on Earth is really only for completists. It's mostly instrumental, and great for scaring neighborhood kids on Halloween, but there's not much to it beyond that. "[...] »

Four Uniquely American Directors

3 July 2011 7:25 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Every year during the Fourth of July, American cable and movie channels never fail to make an effort to run a slate of films perceived as ideal in representing the American brand. These range from war movies dripping with nostalgia and patriotism to pop culture pieces sympathetic to American history and ideals to macho action movies dedicated to American exceptionalism. But with every showing of The Patriot, Yankee Doodle Dandy, or Independence Day, the question becomes more and more pressing, what is an American film? Perhaps more specifically, what is an American director?

To be fair, any number of directors could be classified as quintessentially American. There is the shining humanism of John Ford, the political posturing and questioning of Oliver Stone and Michael Moore, even the capitalist excess of Michael Bay. Below are four directors that may not immediately come to mind as proto typically American filmmakers. The films »

'Breaking Bad's' Giancarlo Esposito joins Tyler Perry in 'I, Alex Cross'

28 June 2011 10:58 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Summit Entertainment's reboot of James Patterson's Alex Cross franchise in "I,Alex Cross" is getting another intriguing actor as Giancarlo Esposito has joined the ensemble.  Best known for his role on AMC's award-winning series "Breaking Bad," Esposito's impressive resume includes Spike Lee's "Do the Right Thing" and "Malcolm X," Bryan Singer's "The Usual Suspects," Jim Jarmusch's "Night on Earth" and Tim Robbins' "Bob Roberts."  At the moment, it's unclear who Esposito will play in "Cross." The picture is particularly noteworthy as Tyler Perry is making a rare acting turn without directing as Cross in the new thriller. Instead, Rob Cohen is helming the picture which promises »

Jim Jarmusch to Helm New Vampire Project

16 May 2011 12:15 PM, PDT | | See recent Dread Central news »

If anyone can break the currently stale and sparkling mold of vampire flicks, it's independent and uncompromising American filmmaker Jim Jarmusch so we couldn't be more excited about the news that Jarmusch is set to helm a toothy tale starring Tilda Swinton, Michael Fassbender, and Mia Wasikowska as his vampires and John Hurt in a featured role.

Jarmusch (pictured right, Night on Earth, Dead Man, Broken Flowers) describes the currently untitled project as a “crypto-vampire love story” set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangiers. Plans are to shoot in Germany, Morocco, and Detroit in early 2012.

According to Screen Daily Jeremy Thomas and Reinhard Brundig will jointly produce through Recorded Picture Company and Pandora Films. HanWay Films is handling international sales. Rpc CEO Peter Watson and Jarmusch business partner Stacey Smith will serve as executive producers.

Jarmusch said, “I’ve been imagining this film for years. I can’t »

Isaach De Bankole tribute and master class in N.Y.

16 March 2011 8:38 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

How come New York gets all the good stuff? And if you’re in the NY area then you’ll have an opportunity next month to get involved with Issach de Bankole.

I can think of few actors today who are as charismatic and compelling on the screen than him (can you?), and next month, in April, The Museum of Arts and Design in association with French Institute Alliance Francaise will present the month long series: Isaach de Bankole, An Unexpected Gentleman.

The program will consist of a film series including Otomo, Night on Earth and The Limits of Control among other films with De Bankole, and other events will include a one-on-one conversation with his frequent collaborator Jim Jarmusch; and on April 9th De Bankole will give an acting master class as well.
