Revisiting Spike Lee's Divisive 'Girl 6' On Its 18th Birthday

26 March 2014 2:55 PM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

March 22, 1996, Spike Lee's contentious dramedy Girl 6 opened in theaters in the USA. I'm 4 days late in wishing the film a happy birthday, but who's counting, right? I call it one of Spike's *forgotten* films - not because we don't remember it, but rather because, when discussions of Spike's film library are had, it's one of those titles that rarely gets mentioned; Whether it's because they were poorly received by audiences and/or critics, or there just wasn't as much awareness of them at the time of their initial releases, maybe due to a lack of accessibility/availability.  Films like Do The Right ThingMalcolm XJungle Fever, She's »

Lionsgate and Italy’s Leone Film Group Ink Long-Term Output Deal

3 March 2014 8:59 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome – Lionsgate has inked a long-term output deal with Italy’s Leone Film Group, the company originally founded by spaghetti western master Sergio Leone that is rapidly becoming a major Italo distributor, one year after its output deal with DreamWorks.

The multifaceted deal covers feature films from the Lionsgate and Summit labels.  Italy was one of the last remaining major territories not previously covered by an output arrangement for Lionsgate’s distribution structure. The deal, finalized at the Berlin film festival last month, includes Lionsgate’s exploration of worldwide promotional opportunities on a case-by-case basis with Leone’s Pacmedia promotional group. 

Now headed by Leone’s children, Andrea and Raffaella, Leone Films effectively acts as the Hollywood agent for pubcaster Rai’s 01 Distribuzione.

The group was floated late last year on the Milan stock market with a positive Ipo geared toward becoming a bigger distributor of high-profile product.

Malcolm X Was Killed Today. Watch Orlando Bagwell's 2 1/2-Hour Doc 'Malcolm X: Make It Plain' Now

21 February 2014 7:52 AM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

A birth and a death... yesterday in history, Sidney Poitier was born; Today in history... February 21st, 1965, Malcolm Little/Malcolm X/El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz was killed in New York City. He was just 39 years old. Of course, I'm sure we all know of Spike Lee's 1992 epic film based on the life of the man - a film that will rest among the nation’s treasures in the world’s largest archive of film, TV and sound recordings; 3 years ago, it was inducted for preservation in the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress.  It's now officially on Blu-ray by the way, so you can pick up a copy if you haven't yet. I'm not aware of any film events that are »

An Open Letter to Spike Lee

14 February 2014 2:10 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

[Editors Note: Writer/director Pearry Teo (Necromentia, Witchville, Bedlam Stories) pens this open letter to director Spike Lee regarding his remake of Chan-Woo Park's masterpiece, OldBoy]

 

Dear Spike Lee,

When I was a young kid, at about 15 years old, I came across one of your masterpieces called Malcolm X. I loved that movie so much, it was the first cap I bought… with an X on it. Trust me, in high school, most people raised an eye brow when an asian kid wore a Malcolm X hat. But I did love the movie, and I was definitely wooed by your filmmaking skills to portray such a great man. Eventually, I grew up and started making my own films. One of the highlights and inspiration to focus on story telling was Chan-Wook Park’s OldBoy. Now, what a masterpiece it is. Then I heard you were remaking OldBoy… and I didn’t know how to process it.

Now, I’m not writing this letter to you as a filmmaker. For god knows, you have achieved more and »

Spike Lee Signs With ICM Partners

27 January 2014 5:30 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Breaking: Spike Lee, one of the stalwarts of New York filmmakers who helped put modern indie filmmaking on the map, has signed with ICM Partners. The move comes less than two weeks after his agent Billy Hawkins exited CAA, and ICM has just made the signing known to staffers. The agency jump comes 25 years after the release of Do The Right Thing, the Lee “joint” that landed Oscar nominations for Original Screenplay and put the helmer on the path to such vital films as Jungle Fever, Mo’ Better Blues and Malcolm X, which drew two more Oscar nominations. The move marks a return to the ICM fold, his home before moving to CAA. Lee is as busy as ever now, and is in postproduction on Da Sweet Blood Of Jesus, a vampire pic for which he raised money via Kickstarter. His fundraising efforts on the site drew almost $1.3 million — and »

American Stories Told By Foreign Directors

27 January 2014 11:06 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Mark Pinkert

Contributor

There was an interesting phenomenon in film this year that deserves a second look: many of the most recognizably “American” films of 2013 were directed by foreigners and, of those films, two feature almost entirely foreign casts.

First, to be clear, when I say “American” films, I’m not referring to stories that simply take place here; rather, I’m looking at films that are germane to the American narrative, to our history and cultural zeitgeist–really, Americana as opposed to just American. Films like The Great Gatsby, 12 Years a Slave, Dallas Buyers Club and Captain Phillips–which bring to life classic American literature, histories, and recent events–are the best examples. (Gravity is a tough sell for this list, but does fit insofar as it deals with the space program, a prominent feature of 20th century, Cold War America.) The second criterion, then, is to have a foreign director, »

Blu-ray, DVD Release: Oldboy (2013)

22 January 2014 12:58 PM, PST | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray, DVD & Digital Release Date: March 4, 2014

Price: DVD $30.99, Blu-ray/DVD Combo $40.99

Studio: Sony Pictures Home Entertainment

Spike Lee (Malcolm X) gets back to grittier fare with 2013 movie Oldboy, a remake of the 2003 South Korean cult hit of the same name.

The action film stars Josh Brolin (Gangster Squad) as Joe Doucett, who was kidnapped and locked in solitary confinement for 20 years. Now that’s he’s free, he’s got vengeance on his mind and sets up to find out who took him and why.

Elizabeth Olsen (Silent House), Samuel L. Jackson (Marvel’s The Avengers) and Michael Imperioli (TV’s Detroit 1-8-7) also star in the R-rated movie.

Lee’s Oldboy was released to a limited number of theaters and received mixed reviews from critics and moviegoers. Time Magazine critic Richard Corliss said, “A vivid yet academic remake, this Oldboy is shorter, leaner and lesser.”

Will Steve McQueen become the first black film-maker to win an Oscar for best director?

17 January 2014 10:31 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Gong for 12 Years a Slave nominee would follow year of real progress, but history shows such breakthroughs are illusive

Steve McQueen may not be the favourite to win the Oscar for best director when the statuettes are handed out on 2 March, but if he does it will represent a historic breakthrough for black film-makers: none has ever been honoured in this category and only two others have even been nominated – John Singleton in 1992 for Boyz n the Hood and Lee Daniels in 2009 for Precious.

The claims of Alfonso Cuarón, director of space-walk thriller notwithstanding, we may witness a moment equal to that of Kathryn Bigelow's, when in 2009 she became the first woman to win the best director Oscar for The Hurt Locker (defeating Daniels as she did so).

McQueen's prominence arrives on the back of a year that saw real progress for black film-makers, particularly in the Us.
