NYC Weekend Watch: ‘The Magnificent Ambersons,’ Cary Grant, ‘To Sleep with Anger’ & More

8 September 2016 8:53 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since any New York City 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 Magnificent Ambersons, Demy‘s Model Shop, and Mad Max play as part of “Welcome to Metrograph: A to Z.”

The Kurosawa series comes to an end with The Hidden Fortress this Saturday.

Chan Is Missing returns to theaters on a 35mm print; Visconti‘s Sandra screens on Sunday, as does the Disney documentary Bears. »

Why Sony Pictures Classics Thinks Backing Female Directors Is Good for Business and Art

8 September 2016 10:15 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When Tom Bernard and Michael Barker saw “Equity” at last winter’s Sundance Film Festival, they knew immediately that the thriller about women breaking Wall Street’s glass ceiling would tap into the zeitgeist — before reviews even hit, the Sony Pictures Classics co-presidents snapped up the movie and gamed out a release plan that saw the studio debuting the picture the same week that Hillary Clinton claimed the Democratic Party’s nomination for president.

“They instantly understood that the movie was an opportunity to have a conversation about women in business,” says Meera Menon, the film’s director. So Bernard and Barker worked with Menon and producers Alysia Reiner and Sarah Megan Thomas to set up screenings with women’s groups all over the country, organizing discussions about gender discrimination around the film.

“It’s a thriller and a Wall Street drama, but it’s also an issues movie,” says Bernard. »

Merchant Ivory Films’ Sumptuous Re-Release Gets A Star-Filled New Trailer — Watch

7 September 2016 1:16 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Classic film lovers rejoice. Charles S. Cohen, owner, chairman and CEO of Cohen Media Group has begun re-releasing 30 films by the legendary Merchant Ivory Productions. The remastered library includes 21 feature films and 9 shorts and documentaries.

Merchant Ivory Productions was founded in 1961 by producer Ismail Merchant and director James Ivory — together, they produced 44 films. Founder and Oscar-nominated director James Ivory has collaborated with Cohen, and serves as creative director, on the restoration, re-release and promotion of each of the 30 films. Some of the titles set be released include the already-available “Howards End,” “Maurice,” “Shakespeare Wallah” and “Heat and Dust.”

Vanessa Redgrave on Her Early Career, ‘Howards End’ and Ismail Merchant’s Cooking

2 September 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

You might say that Vanessa Redgrave was born to be an actress. Laurence Olivier, who was performing alongside her father, Michael, in a 1937 production of “Hamlet” in London, announced her birth from the stage after a show, telling the audience: “Tonight a great actress was born.”

In a career that has spanned seven decades, Redgrave has won an Oscar, a Tony, two Emmys, and two Golden Globes. She received her sixth Oscar nomination in 1992 for her role in the Merchant Ivory film “Howards End,” which is screening in a newly restored print in New York and Los Angeles. The 79-year-old actress remains as busy as ever, performing on stage and in film and television. She can be seen in the James Sheridan film “The Secret Scripture,” which premieres at the Toronto Film Festival on Sept. 10. Her first mention in Variety was on June 25, 1958.

In 1958, Variety polled London critics about their »

How ‘White Girl’ Filmmaker Elizabeth Wood Turned Her Own Life Into Summer’s Wildest Movie — Girl Talk

1 September 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Girl Talk is a weekly look at women in film — past, present and future.

Filmmaker Elizabeth Wood is into excess. “I’m an over-talker, over-writer, over-shooter,” the “White Girl” writer and director recently explained to IndieWire. “I’m just an excessive person. More, more, more, more, give me more anything.”

But for Wood’s first feature, the daring “White Girl,” the filmmaker had to work against her own nature and strip down a hefty story – one based on her own experiences – to craft a tightly wound story that addresses issues as wide-ranging as white privilege, illegal drugs and sexual assault. Initially imagined as 200-page script that culminated in “a mass orgy,” Wood had to pare down her story to a slim 88 minutes, all in the name of maximum impact and minimum superfluity.

“The exercise of writing ‘White Girl’ was how to strip it down, how to tell this story with »

Every year, industry folks lobby the Board of Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences with their candidates for honorary Oscar winners at the annual Governors Awards. And sometimes they get their way. Over the years Mike Kaplan, a publicists branch Academy member, has successfully lobbied for Lillian Gish, Robert Altman and John Ford’s favorite actress Maureen O’Hara, who happily collected her gold man the year before she died.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences Board of Governors voted Tuesday night on the 2016 (un-televised) Governors Awards, which often including the coveted producer’s award, the Thalberg, and the Hersholt humanitarian award. You know what they’re looking for: someone who is still respected — if not revered.

‘Howards End’: Emma Thompson and James Ivory Reveal 5 Lessons Hollywood Should Learn From The Classic

31 August 2016 9:06 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Back when Sony released Rob Marshall’s overwrought and glossy $85-million flop “Memoirs of a Geisha,” I remember saying, “Merchant Ivory could have made a better version of this for $12 million.”

The production company founded by the late, great New York producer Ismail Merchant and James Ivory, his directing partner for 40 years, produced a remarkable collection of low-budget indie dramas from 1963 through 2005, the year Merchant died. Their films were so instantly recognizable that “Merchant Ivory” became not only a brand but also a description of an art film genre often identified in ads with ivy trellises.

Cohen Media recently acquired (with some difficulty) the rights to most of their library (21 films, 10 shorts and several documentaries). New York cinephile and real estate mogul Charles Cohen said he acquired the Merchant Ivory brand “to raise the profile in the minds of a new audience and remind older audiences of the high quality films Merchant Ivory embodied. »

'Don't Breathe' Scares Off Competition With $26M Opening Weekend

28 August 2016 9:37 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Led by a fantastic opening for Screen Gems' new thriller Don't Breathe, this weekend over performed expectations with the top twelve delivering a 43.5% improvement over the same weekend last year, just barely coming up shy of a combined $100 million. Along with the stellar opening for Don't Breathe, Mechanic: Resurrection had a solid opening for Lionsgate & Co., the moderate release of Southside with You performed well, the expansion of Hell or High Water continues to impress and Bad Moms has another great hold as the R-rated comedy approaches $100 million domestically. At the top, Don't Breathe delivered an estimated $26.1 million besting Mojo's projections, which were nearly double the studio's conservative expectations, by $5.6 million. The film, which was made for just under $10 million, delivered 2.6 times its budget domestically and received a "B+" CinemaScore from opening day audiences. The opening compares favorably to last year's The Visit, which opened with $25.4 million and a »

15 Films to See in August

1 August 2016 10:42 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

August can often be thought of as a January-esque dumping ground for Hollywood, and that notion is certainly refuted when looking at this month’s releases. With one of the summer’s best studio offerings, a few more more promising ones, and some of our festival favorites from the last year (and even further back), there is no shortage of promising options. We should also note that Multiple Maniacs, Elevator to the Gallows, and Howards End are all getting substantial theatrical re-releases throughout the month, so seek those restorations if they are coming near you.

Matinees to See: Neither Heaven Nor Earth (8/5), Richard Linklater: Dream is Destiny (8/5), The Tenth Man (8/5), The Lost Arcade (8/12), Anthropoid (8/12), My King (8/12), Florence Foster Jenkins (8/12), Disorder (8/12), When Two Worlds Collide (8/17), Imperium (8/19), A Tale of Love and Darkness (8/19), The People vs. Fritz Bauer (8/19), Spa Night (8/19), War Dogs (8/19), A Complete Unknown (8/26), Don’t Breathe (8/26), Hands of Stone (8/26), and »

July. It's (Almost) a Wrap

30 July 2016 4:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

We started the month off wishing Olivia de Havilland a happy centennial. She's now our oldest living Oscar winner! Then we completed our our "halfway mark" year in review which is like a warm up for the Film Bitch Awards at years end. We'll close the month tomorrow with the Supporting Actress Smackdown of 1977. Otherwise July has been the usual array of randomness. We like a good variety at The Film Experience as long as that variety includes lots of actressing and films from multiple genres and eras.

But about this era for a moment: the summer blockbusters have been a little rough this summer but find a smaller release to see this weekend: Miss Sharon Jones opened yesterday; do Not miss Viggo Mortensen in Captain Fantastic which added over 400 theaters yesterday (it's now probably somewhere near you) and lives up to its title; and you might also want an opinion on the new Woody, »
