Exclusive: Director Chris Smith on road movie Detour

13 hours ago | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Hannah Woodhead

You might not know the name Chris Smith, but you’ll probably have seen at least one of his films. In 2004 he made the tube (even more?) terrifying with horror movie Creep, and a decade later he took on Father Christmas in the underrated Get Santa. With a varied filmography spanning horror, comedy, and historical action under his belt, Chris has gone stateside for his latest film – a neo-noir road trip movie starring Tye Sheridan, Emory Cohen and Bel Powley. We caught up with him for a quick chat about writing and directing Detour, and what he’s moving onto next.

Were there any films in particular that inspired the stylistic feel of Detour, and how much of the film did you visualise when working on the script?

That’s a very good question. In terms of the visual style, everything starts for me from the narrative style, »

NYC Weekend Watch: Marlene Dietrich, Marcello Mastroianni, ‘The Man Who Fell to Earth’ & More

25 May 2017 5:18 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.


The legendary Marlene Dietrich is given a spotlight.

Movies to Show My Son: ‘Reservoir Dogs’

22 May 2017 4:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Obviously based on the fact that I am doing this series you can see that I am a fan of movies, which has been true for as long as I have been old enough to watch them. Despite my love of movies growing up I tended to watch the same types of genres. As is often the case with kids I also tended to rewatch a lot of my favorites over and over as well. Every so often I broke away from my comfort zone to watch something brand new. Every so often that new movie shook the foundation of the way I viewed the art of film making.

That happened when I watched Reservoir Dogs. This is a film my brother introduced me to, although indirectly as he probably had new interest showing his little annoying brother a movie he was far too young to watch. We shared a »

Review: The Pyramid Texts (2015)

16 May 2017 7:41 AM, PDT | The Cultural Post | See recent The Cultural Post news »

There have been many narrative techniques used over the course of cinema’s history. Some of the more unique ones involve non-linear storytelling, popularised by Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction. An uncommon technique, however, is that of the single situation movie, where the characters are kept in one location for the entirety of the film. Using this method, we have been treated to thrillers such as Rope (1948) and dramas like Carnage (2011), but the one thing they all had in common was that they included multiple characters interacting with one another, holding the audience’s attention through the use of conversations and conflict. But how would such a single location film work with just one actor? With one man delivering a 98-minute monologue about his career as a boxer, would the audience be bored, especially those who have no interest in the sport, or could this risky move work wonders? »

Chaz Ebert’s Guide to Surviving the Cannes Film Festival (Guest Column)

16 May 2017 7:15 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

I was first introduced to Cannes by Roger’s book “Two Weeks in the Midday Sun,” with his hand-drawn illustrations of people and places in the south of France. That was back in 1990. All these years later when I return I still recognize some of the same places he wrote about and drew and inhabited. Of course some of the things have changed, but the French like tradition, and so the more things change the more they remain the same.

For instance, my room at the Hotel Splendid (pronounced Hotel Splawn-Deed) contains a plaque bearing Roger’s name in honor of the 40-plus years he stayed there. Checking in is as welcome as a warm hug for me. This beautiful little boutique hotel looks like a wedding cake on the outside, and it’s populated with journalists and film critics from America. The proprietor, Madame Cagnat, prides herself on having »

Michael Parks, Beloved Character Actor and Quentin Tarantino and Kevin Smith Regular, Passes Away at 77

10 May 2017 9:09 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Michael Parks, longtime Hollywood mainstay and beloved character actor and singer, has passed away at the age of 77. The news was announced by filmmaker Kevin Smith, who took to his Instagram to share that “the best actor I’ve ever known” and his “cinematic muse,” had died. No cause of death was named.

Smith directed Parks in both his “Tusk” and “Red State,” having relished the longtime actor’s career since first seeing him in Robert Rodriguez’s “From Dusk Till Dawn.” Though Parks’ career stretched back to 1960, when he made his screen debut on TV’s “Zane Grey Theater,” in recent years, the supporting standout had enjoyed a revival at the hands of both Quentin Tarantino (who Smith deemed Parks’ “biggest fan”) and Smith, who continued to craft roles for the singular actor.

Has Reservoir Dogs Aged Well?

While its opening salvo, in which Quentin Tarantino’s legacy is rated against four other directors — three of whom are still fondly thought of here at Filmmaker — is a bit harsh, Evan Puschak’s video appreciation of Reservoir Dogs, Qt’s first feature, digs into some of the aspects that make it a still-compelling watch a quarter of a century (!) later. And after you watch, check out Alex Rockwell’s interview with Tarantino upon the film’s release. (Ht: »

Great Job, Internet!: Revisiting Reservoir Dogs, 25 years later

5 May 2017 9:29 AM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs turned 25 this year, which provides a good reason to revisit the now-canonical caper and character study. Nerdwriter’s newest video essay investigates it with fresh eyes, trying to parse just how the film has aged since it first divided audiences at the 1992 Sundance Film Festival. The verdict? Quite well, actually.

The essay doesn’t focus on the things that turned heads a quarter-century ago, like the grit, blood, and ear-slicing. Rather, with the benefit of hindsight and Tarantino’s many hours of filmmaking since 1992, The Nerdwriter zeroes in on Reservoir Dog’s non-linear structure and what distinguishes it from other non-standard means of storytelling. What’s especially fascinating is how the essay compares Tarantino’s sequencing with that of an album, saying that his films tend to have “the same natural rhythm as an album cycle does, offering a variety in tempo ...

Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days gets an extended gameplay trailer

5 May 2017 3:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With its release date fast approaching, Lionsgate and Big Star Games have released an extended gameplay trailer for Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days; check it out here…

Following the game’s launch, Big Star Games will also be holding a global contest for streamers to play a level of the game for the first time, with the highest score winning money for the Steam wallet (and redeemable Steam codes for viewers).  You’ll need to practice with the special pre-release build in order to maximize your points for the contest once the game launches.

Starring the six iconic characters from the movie, Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days features insane single-player cooperative gameplay that plays out across 18 different levels, including banks, docks, nightclubs and more. The result is a shockingly violent, addictive, adrenaline-filled masterpiece that toys with time, just as Quentin Tarantino’s landmark film did 25 years ago.

Twin Peaks Teaser Trailer: 25 Years Later...

4 May 2017 9:45 PM, PDT | | See recent LRM Online news »

When people think of television shows that helped change how people viewed the medium, you think of shows like The Sopranos, Hill Street Blues, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and others. One show that doesn't always get brought up is Twin Peaks. From legendary director David Lynch, the show centered around Agent Dale Cooper, played by Kyle MacLachlan, and his search for the killer of Laura Palmer, played by Sheryl Lee.

The show was groundbreaking. At this point in television history, shows were built mainly around single episodes. While there would occasionally be stories that would have a small arc, each episode would have some sort of a resolution. It was unheard of for a show to have a serialized story, with the thinking that audiences wouldn't be able to pay attention to a story told over many episodes. Twin Peaks changed all that. Most importantly, Twin Peaks was one of »

Quentin Tarantino reveals that Wes Craven walked out of a Reservoir Dogs screening

3 May 2017 8:56 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to Quentin Tarantino, the last director one would expect walked out of a screening of his cult-classic movie Reservoir Dogs: Wes Craven.

Talking to EW at the Tribeca Film Festival, the director goes into more detail about what happened during the movies 1992 premiere at Sitges International Film Festival:

“There was all this talk about the torture scene. Steve Buscemi, he comes to me and he goes, ‘Quentin, did you hear what everyone is saying? They’re saying the torture scene ruins the movie!’ And I go, ‘What are they talking about? It’s the best thing in the fucking movie! Did you see how many people walked out? That’s the shit!’… They showed Peter Jackson’s Dead Alive, which was just drowned in zombie guts and brains. Finally I’ve got an audience that won’t walk out. I even joked about that in the opening introduction for the movie. »

The 2017 edition of Tribeca Film Festival came to a close on Saturday with an epic affair, which was kicked off with one of the greatest opening lines spoken in any American film ever: “I believe in America.”

The historic event that wrapped up the festival’s massively-scaled and star-studded 16th year was the back-to-back screenings of The Godfather and The Godfather Part II, followed by a panel discussion moderated by filmmaker Taylor Hackford. After a 7+- hour screening marathon with one intermission, writer-director Francis Ford Coppola took the stage, joined by his cast-members Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Diane Keaton, James Caan, Robert Duvall and Talia Shire. Even Marlon Brando was there in spirit, with his portrait positioned over the living room-like setting where the conversation took place. To the cinephiles that filled the sold-out event in »

Elm Street Director Wes Craven Walked Out of Reservoir Dogs

30 April 2017 11:13 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Reservoir Dogs is currently enjoying its 25th Anniversary as one of the greatest crime thrillers of all-time. But it wasn't immediately well-received by the filmmaking community of which Quentin Tarantino worshipped. In fact, the first ever screening was an absolute disaster. And as the director screened it around the country, he experienced quite a few walkouts from audience members who just couldn't 'stomach' some of the more visceral scenes of violence, which included an ear getting hacked off (though off screen) and a man brutally shot in the gut. Surprising enough, one of those in attendance who just couldn't handle the violence was Wes Craven. And in the middle of a screening, Quentin Tarantino was shocked to see Craven, the director behind the brutal Last House on the Left and the immortal Nightmare on Elm Street get up and leave.

Call me Ishmael. Or Tilda, or Benedict, or any number of other names, really, as Plymouth University has completed its “Moby-Dick Big Read,” an audiobook version of Herman Melville’s whale of a novel. All 135 chapters are read by a different voice, including Tilda Swinton, Benedict Cumberbatch, John Waters, Stephen Fry, Sir David Attenborough and David Cameron.

Launched in 2011, the project is based on the idea that “Moby-Dick” is not only “the great American novel” — it’s also “the great unread American novel.” Angela Cockayne and Philip Hoare describe the Big Read as “an online version of Melville’s magisterial tome: each of its 135 chapters read out aloud, by a mixture of the celebrated and the unknown, to be broadcast online in a sequence of 135 downloads, publicly and freely accessible.”

Watch: Francis Ford Coppola and ‘The Godfather’ Cast Reunite in 80-Minute Tribeca Panel

30 April 2017 6:50 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

To cap off the Tribeca Film Festival, there were two legendary reunions this weekend. On Friday, Quentin Tarantino and the cast of Reservoir Dogs appeared for the film’s 25th anniversary (see a recap here); then, on Saturday, The Godfather was celebrated for its 45th anniversary. After a screening of both the first film and The Godfather Part II, director Francis Ford Coppola and cast members Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, James Caan, Robert Duvall, Diane Keaton, and Talia Shire gathered for an extensive 80-minute talk on the making of their masterpieces.

If you didn’t have a ticket to the event at Radio City Music Hall, moderated by Taylor Hackford, thankfully Tribeca streamed the entire thing and one can watch it in full.
