Quentin Tarantino’s 9 Strangest and Most Surprising Movie Projects

5 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When you think of Quentin Tarantino, classic films like “Reservoir Dogs,” “Pulp Fiction,” and “Django Unchained” certainly come to mind. But what about the critically reviled “Saturday Night Live” sketch adaptation “It’s Pat”? Or the Michael Bay Alcatraz action movie “The Rock”? Tarantino’s fingerprints have been all over the movies ever since his breakout debut in 1992, and some of his projects are way more bizarre than others.

The director is currently getting together his ninth feature, which will be his penultimate effort behind the camera if his retirement talks are to be believed. Sources say Tarantino is putting together a drama involving the Manson family murders and that he’s eyeing Brad Pitt and Jennifer Lawrence to star. As the filmmakers looks to the future for his next project, we »

After Soderbergh: See the Top 10 Box Office Track Records of Classic Indie Filmmakers

19 August 2017 12:40 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In a career that began with “sex lies and videotape” in 1989, “Logan Lucky” is Steven Soderbergh’s 26th theatrical release. It will extend his record as the top-grossing American director to come out of the independent scene in its formative years — a period we’ll define as 1975 (Joan Micklin Silver’s “Hester Street”) through 1992 (Quentin Tarantino’s debut, “Reservoir Dogs”).

To be clear, Soderbergh’s an outlier; his billion-dollar box office dwarfs every other indie filmmaker. However, looking at the performance of his contemporaries who got their start in that indie film movement, you may be surprised at who’s on the list. (Note: “Outside wide release” means less than 1,000 screens. Also, the list doesn’t include directors like Sam Raimi and Abel Ferrara, who have independent roots but were not discovered via the film festival/arthouse pathway, or Alan Rudolph, another significant ’80s figure; he started in horror films in the early ’70s. »

'Logan Lucky': The Six Things You Need to Make a Perfect Heist Film

18 August 2017 6:39 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Head to the movies this weekend to see Logan Lucky, and you'll see more than Steven Soderbergh ending his moviemaking retirement phase and returning to the big screen. (You've been greatly missed, sir.) You'll see more than just Channing Tatum and Adam Driver playing down-on-their-luck Southern brothers who hatch a plan to rob the Charlotte Motor Speedway. You'll even see more than Daniel Craig sporting a bottle-blond crop-cut hairdo and Seth MacFarlane sporting something on his head that looks like a cross between a mullet, a Jheri curl and roadkill. »

Post-Charlottesville, Dee Rees Counts Down America’s Pathologically Violent History — Watch

On Saturday, August 12, writer-director Dee Rees, whose film “Mudbound” (November 17) scored Sundance’s biggest sale to Netflix ($12.5 million), watched television coverage of the white supremacy rally in Charlottesville, Virginia with growing horror.

The 20 Best Crime Films of the 21st Century, From ‘Memento’ to ‘Zodiac’

11 August 2017 2:14 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

No genre illustrates the evolution of cinema better than the crime film. As recently as the ’90s, Hollywood regularly released stories of cops-and-robber showdowns and mystery-thrillers based on best-selling novels — but as the middle class continues to disappear from Hollywood films, smart crime stories moved to television (see: “The Sopranos,” “The Wire,” “Breaking Bad,” “The Night Of,” et. al.).

Outside the studios, there is a longstanding tradition – from the B-movies to the Coen brothers – of new directors showcasing their filmmaking chops with dark, stylish, and intense crime sagas. A surge of new filmmakers in the ’90s brought fresh interpretations to the genre, from the pastiche of “Reservoir Dogs” to the unnerving realism in “Boyz n the Hood.”

Quentin Tarantino Kicks Off Sundance’s Next Fest With ‘Reservoir Dogs’ and a Message of Hope

11 August 2017 12:29 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“Are you gonna bark all day, little doggy, or are you gonna bite?”

25 years later, this is the line from “Reservoir Dogs” that most stays in the mind — no small feat, given how quotable Quentin Tarantino’s masterpiece of mafioso banter is. Maybe it’s because it signals the violence to come from Mr. Blonde (Michael Madsen), whose stuck-in-the-middle-with-you torture sequence has lost none of its disturbing luster — or perhaps it’s because, nearly three decades later, it almost reads as a statement of intent from Tarantino himself.

Quentin Tarantino Mum on Manson Project While Accepting Sundance Next Fest Prize

Midway through an acceptance speech Thursday night at the Sundance Institute's Next Fest, Quentin Tarantino paused to give a shout-out to the city outside.

"I am a L.A. boy," the filmmaker told the capacity crowd inside The Theatre at Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles, where he was accepting a Vanguard Leadership Award presented by Acura before a 25th anniversary screening of his feature debut, Reservoir Dogs. "I'm from here — I was born in Tennessee but I moved here when I was 2 years old, so give me a fucking break. I grew up in Los Angeles County. I went »

Quentin Tarantino Honored With Vanguard Leadership Award at Sundance Next Fest Kick-Off

11 August 2017 10:18 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Sundance Institute’s Next Fest kicked off on Thursday evening at The Theatre at Ace Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles with the presentation of the vanguard leadership award to lauded filmmaker Quentin Tarantino, along with a 35 mm 25th anniversary screening of his film “Reservoir Dogs.”

Michelle Satter, the founding director of the Sundance feature film program, presented Tarantino with the award, commending him for his continued support of the organization that helped give him his start through the Sundance Institute Directors Lab. In 2015, Tarantino returned as a creative adviser to the lab, and has also contributed to the Sally Menke Memorial Fellowship, which was established after his longtime film editor died in 2010.

Food Tutorials are Infinitely Better When Directed By Wes Anderson, Alfonso Cuarón, and More — Watch

11 August 2017 7:41 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Scroll down your Facebook homepage and you’re bound to come across quite a few food tutorials. Videos from Tastemade, Food Network, and Buzzfeed’s Tasty have become something of an art form on social media, but food artist and director David Ma is here to turn food tutorials into cinema.

Ma has launched his Food Films series this month, a collection of short videos that pair food tutorials with iconic directing styles. What if Alfonso Cuarón made pancakes?

Other directors featured include Quentin Tarantino and Michael Bay, because every waffle recipe could use a little more mayhem.

‘Free Fire’ Blu-ray Review

7 August 2017 6:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Cillian Murphy, Armie Hammer, Brie Larson, Sharlto Copley, Michael Smiley, Sam Riley, Jack Reynor | Written by Ben Wheatley, Amy Jump | Directed by Ben Wheatley

From A Field in England to a High-Rise in London to a warehouse in a Us dockland, you cannot say writer-director Ben Wheatley is predictable. Except Free Fire does feel distinctly familiar – comfortingly and enjoyably so, perhaps, but do not expect the unexpected. The heightened ‘70s aesthetic is retained from Wheatley’s previous film, instantly eliminating the issue of mobile phones, while also feeling like a throwback to a simpler cinematic time.

In what is more premise than plot, a bunch of idiotic guys and a slightly less idiotic woman (Brie Larson) descend upon a warehouse to complete a weapons deal. Frank (Wheatley regular Michael Smiley) leads the buyers; Vernon (Sharlto Copley) is the unhinged dealer. Mediating the deal is Ord (Armie Hammer) – but despite »

Adrien Brody on His Ties to China and New Film ‘A Dog Named De Niro’ (Exclusive)

4 August 2017 2:18 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Adrien Brody was feted Friday with a lifetime achievement award at the Locarno Film Festival, Europe’s preeminent indie event, where he sat down with Variety and talked about why his 2003 Oscar for “The Pianist” didn’t lead to as many big studio roles as could be expected. He also delved into his ties to China, where he is one of a handful of bankable Western stars; and was cagey about his upcoming roles in TV show “Peaky Blinders” and genre-bending picture “A Dog Named De Niro.” Excerpts.

Of your early films the one that stands out for me is “Bread and Roses” by Ken Loach, who was celebrated here in Locarno last year. It’s still timely, given that it’s about exploited Mexican workers in L.A. Can you talk to me a little about working with Loach. How did it happen?

Help Save ’90s Sundance Hit ‘In The Soup’ Starring Steve Buscemi

3 August 2017 1:49 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

You may remember the titles of two seminal films that came out of the 1992 Sundance Film Festival. There was Alison Anders’s film, “Gas Food Lodging” which achingly depicted the longing and wants of teenage girls born to a barren community. Then, of course, there was a little film called “Reservoir Dogs” by Quentin Tarantino, a precursor to the wild success he was going to have in only two years upon the release of 1994’s, “Pulp Fiction.” However, along with what must’ve been plenty of other worthy titles, there was “In the Soup,” the independent comedy from Alex Rockwell that ended up walking away with the Grand Jury prize that year.

Harvey Keitel, Liam McIntyre to Star in Drama ‘See You Soon’

31 July 2017 1:27 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Harvey Keitel, Liam McIntyre and newcomer Jenia Tanaeva are starring in the independent romantic drama “See You Soon,” currently filming in Europe and Russia.

David Mahmoudieh is making his feature directorial debut from a script co-written by Tanaeva and Mike Cestari and revisions by Joe Ballarini. Tanaeva is also producing with Monella Kaplan for eMotion Entertainment, with Alexander Mikhalskiy executive producing.

The film also stars “Downton Abbey” star Poppy Drayton, Oleg Taktarov, retired Spanish soccer star Carles Puyol, and Larissa Malevannaya.

Producer Gabi Ilioiu and Iuliana Tarnovetchi’s Alien Film Entertainment are handling the European production on location.

“This is a modern-day Cinderella story in the vein of ‘Pretty Woman’ and ‘An Affair to Remember,'” said Tanaeva. »

‘In the Soup’: You Can Help Save the Only Existing Archival Print of Sundance Winner Before It’s Lost Forever

31 July 2017 9:36 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For its twenty-fifth anniversary, Alexandre Rockwell’s 1992 Sundance winner “In the Soup” is asking for a big gift — but a necessary one. Indie distributor ​Factory 25​ has now launched a crowdfunding campaign to finance the repair and preservation of the film, aiming to make it available digitally and on Blu-ray for the first time.

And while the allure of catching the pioneering feature — the one that beat out “Reservoir Dogs” at the lauded festival, no less — is compelling enough on its own, the real reason for the urgency of the campaign is something else entirely: without this restoration, the film will likely no longer exist. The only existing archival print of the feature is badly damaged, and without the addition of crowdfunded financing, Grady will be unable to restore the film.

The directors who can take cinema forward over the next decade

30 July 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe on the directors who can take cinema forward over the next decade…

There’s a cinematic crossroads on the horizon. As the market gets swallowed up by a core consumer taste leaning toward spandex and radioactive arachnid bites, there’s a need for modern thinking, engaging directors to offer something different. After all, there’s only so long the Marvel cow can be milked. It will dry out. It’s the way of things. Studios now bank on billion dollar returns. These seem safe bets now, but for how long? Ultimately it will become a huge gamble.

We’re still seeing interesting film-makers doing their best to re-invigorate or subvert genres. Edgar Wright just smashed it out of the park with Baby Driver. There was a degree of hyperbole about marking him as a cinematic master (until he improves his depiction of women in films, that may allude »

Face/Off at 20: revisiting the film

Paul Martinovic Jul 28, 2017

John Travolta and Nicolas Cage scored a big hit in John Woo's Face/Off. We take a look back...

One of the great pleasures of following genre cinema is the long, enduring onscreen conversation that’s taken place between movie directors from the East and the West, a creative push and pull which has resulted in some of the most boundary-pushing, inventive and important films ever made. When Akira Kurosawa wrote The Hidden Fortress, an airy homage to the John Ford Westerns he loved so much, he can’t have predicted its rollicking adventuring would be re-interpreted and sent into space by George Lucas to form the basis of the most successful film franchise in history in Star Wars: A New Hope. Similarly, when Ringo Lam took the tropes of 70’s Eurocrime and American gangster movies of the 30s and 40s, and upped the machismo and »
