‘Goodfellas’ Actor Chuck Low is Dead at 89

‘Goodfellas’ Actor Chuck Low is Dead at 89
According to his New York Times obituary, Chuck Low died last month in a New Jersey nursing home at the age of 89. Low will be best remembered by movie fans as Morrie — the toupee salesman who gets in way too deep with the mob in Martin Scorsese’s “Goodfellas” — but his career and life stretched well beyond his memorable movie roles.

Born in New York City in 1928, Low was a military veteran who served in the U.S. Army, became an engineer who made marine instruments, and in the 1960s started a real estate partnership with Lehman Brothers. Low became a pioneer developer in Tribeca, playing a key role in the New York City neighborhood’s transformation into luxury lofts and high-end restaurants. It was in this capacity that he met Tribeca’s most famous resident Robert De Niro, who became both Low’s tenant and friend.

Legendary 'The Good The Bad & The Ugly' star Eli Wallach passes away at 98

Legendary 'The Good The Bad & The Ugly' star Eli Wallach passes away at 98
98 years old. Remarkable. I can't imagine making it to 98. I can't imagine the breadth of life experience you could have in that amount of time. Eli Wallach leaves behind a truly great filmography and a family life that is enviable, having been married to the same woman, Anne Jackson, since 1948. She had a hell of a filmography herself, and they had three children together. I am in awe of anyone who can build a life that solid for that long, never mind someone who works in the film industry, where relationships are, at best, impermanent, and at worst, inconsequential. Wallach will leave an amazing legacy onscreen, but he was part of something larger, a total shift in the way acting was approached, and telling his story is telling the story of that paradigm change. He was part of that first wave of Method actors who made the jump from their

Notebook's 6th Writers Poll: Fantasy Double Features of 2013

  • MUBI
Looking back over the year at what films moved and impressed us, it is clear that watching old films is a crucial part of making new films meaningful. Thus, the annual tradition of our end of year poll, which calls upon our writers to pick both a new and an old film: they were challenged to choose a new film they saw in 2013—in theaters or at a festival—and creatively pair it with an old film they also saw in 2013 to create a unique double feature.

All the contributors were given the option to write some text explaining their 2013 fantasy double feature. What's more, each writer was given the option to list more pairings, with or without explanation, as further imaginative film programming we'd be lucky to catch in that perfect world we know doesn't exist but can keep dreaming of every time we go to the movies.

Quiz: Can You Identify Robert De Niro’s Lesser-Known Roles?
In his half-century as a film actor, Robert De Niro has played some of Hollywood's most iconic characters: Travis Bickle, Jake Lamotta, Max Cady, Jack Byrnes. But he’s become much more prolific as he’s gotten older; Last Vegas, which opens today, is his fourth movie this year, and there are still two more to come. It's hard to keep track of all these roles, as for every Vito Corleone there are a dozen Evan Wrights. If you knew that Wright is his character from 1992’s Mistress, you're going to be great at this quiz, which tests your ability to match descriptions of De Niro's lesser-known roles with the movies that spawned them.

Robert De Niro and his longtime producing partner Jane Rosenthal have been working together for more than 20 years at Tribeca Productions.

DVD Playhouse--July 2011

DVD Playhouse—July 2011

By Allen Gardner

The Music Room (Criterion) Satyajit Ray’s 1958 masterpiece looks at the life of a fallen aristocrat as a metaphor for an India that is not only becoming Westernized, but modernized technologically and culturally beyond recognition. When the beloved music room, where he has hosted lavish concerts in the past, starts falling into disrepair as attendance drops steadily, the man realizes his way of life is vanishing. Stunningly shot in black & white, one of Ray’s finest works. Bonuses: Documentary on Ray from 1984 by Shyam Benegal; Interviews with Ray biographer Andrew Robinson and filmmaker Mira Nair; Excerpt from 1981 roundtable discussion between Ray, critic Michael Ciment, director Claude Sautet. Also available on Blu-ray disc. Full screen. Dolby 1.0 mono.

Beauty And The Beast (Criterion) Jean Cocteau’s sublime adaptation of the classic fairy tale become a beloved classic upon its 1946 release, and hasn’t faded since.

Hitting movie theaters this weekend:

Judy Moody and the Not Bummer SummerJordana Beatty, Heather Graham, Parris Mosteller

Super 8 - Elle Fanning, Amanda Michalka, Kyle Chandler

Movie of the Week

Super 8

The Stars: Elle Fanning, Amanda Michalka, Kyle Chandler

The Plot: After witnessing a mysterious train crash, a group of friends in the summer of 1979 begin noticing strange happenings going around in their small town, and begin to investigate into the creepy phenomenon.

The Buzz: The trailer for Super 8 sent shivers down my spine — good shivers. This film looks to be a beautifully crafted Spielbergian throwback. I’m pleased with the lack of A-list actors too. There’s been an air of mystery around this whole production, as J.J.Abrams and company did their best at keeping everything about this film on the hush-hush. I’ll be checking it out as soon as humanly possible

Black Swan Soundtrack

The Black Swan soundtrack. There are many wondrously skilled musicians across the globe whose bands have dispersed before their time, who have not been fortunate enough to be in a Radiohead, or a Red Hot Chili Peppers, a Queens Of The Stone Age or a Green Day. No appearance on Cribs for them, few residual sales, sod all in the savings account, almost nothing of monetary value to show for five or eight or twelve years making records and being in magazines. For these musicians their creative life becomes back-story, and out of necessity they forge new careers – maybe in production like Ian Broudie (The Lightning Seeds) or in criticism like Andy Gill (Gang of Four). The vast majority fade away, go to work in suits and ties, open a vegetarian cafe or a bar, start a sub-par later-life band and tour provincial town halls, or, like the lead singer

Four 80s Films That Deserve To Be Remade

Ever since it was announced last week that there was going to be a feature-length remake of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (not even the television show; the movie), the fan community has been reacting with the predictable mixture of horror at what the producers could possibly be conceiving and inability to comprehend who this reboot could possibly be aimed at.

Admittedly, I don’t really know. But this in addition to a long stream of other recent remakes (we're all looking at you, Platinum Dunes), are conspiring to take the few remaining strands of original thought in Hollywood and squish them like so many grapes between the toes of a Frenchman (they do that, you know; it's how wine is made). It’d be easy to complain here, but I’d feel like I was simply copying and pasting older articles and simply replacing Psycho or The Wicker Man or
