The Best Of The Best – The Greatest Composers And The Scores That Made Them Great

10 May 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Dave Roper

With Actors, Directors, Actresses and Screenwriters under our collective belt and Cinematographers still to come, we presently turn our eye towards Composers, whose music lends so much to the films they work on.

As with the other lists, credit is given for not merely one or two sterling scores, but rather a consistently excellent body of work with specific stand-out films. To be blunt, this is a trickier prospect than it at first appears. Just because a film is terrific or well-loved doesn’t necessarily mean that the score is itself a standout. We begin with perhaps the most obvious and celebrated film composer of them all…..

John WilliamsStar Wars

Goodness me. The Poseidon Adventure, The Towering Inferno, Earthquake, Jaws, Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Long Goodbye, Catch Me If You Can, Star Wars, Close Encounters, Star Wars, Superman, Et, Born on the Fourth of July, »

Martin Scorsese, Jay Cocks & Rodrigo Prieto Talk ‘Silence’ At Momi

26 April 2017 2:30 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The Museum of the Moving Image has been celebrating and exploring filmmaker Martin Scorsese’s life, work, and his passion for cinema since December with a terrific exhibit drawing extensively from Scorsese’s own collection of key production material, objects from his childhood, behind-the-scenes images, and large-scale projections of scenes from his work and more. For the final weekend of the exhibit, Momi put on a full-blown retrospective of his work over two days featuring the lesser-seen, more personal Scorsese films, “A Personal Journey with Martin Scorsese through American Movies,” “My Voyage to Italy (Il mio viaggio in Italia)” and docs like “No Direction Home” and “The Last Waltz.”

However, it was the impressive panel after the screening of“Silence” that brought a special salute to the exhibit in its entirety, which included cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto, screenwriter Jay Cocks, who along with co-writing “Silence,” also co-wrote “The Age of Innocence” and “Gangs of New York, »

Here’s Why Cinematographer Michael Ballhaus Was Brilliant: 13 Images That Capture His Style

13 April 2017 12:25 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The late cinematographer Michael Ballhaus didn’t grow up watching movies. His parents were stage actors, and he first fell in love with the art of performance. And as a cinematographer, one of his many gifts was the way he captures actors’ faces and how his camera found its rhythm with their movements and emotions.

Read More: Martin Scorsese Remembers His Cinematographer Michael Ballhaus: ‘He Changed My Way Of Thinking’

He fell in love with movies at age 20 when he visited the set of Max Ophuls’ “Lola Montes.” Ballhaus spent 10 days on the circus set and became entranced by the period style and the master director’s virtuoso swirling camera movement. Not until Ballhaus’ later Hollywood work, on films like “The Age of Innocence” or “Bram Stoker’s Dracula,” did he get the chance to work on lavish sets and play with all the toys of prestige filmmaking.

Michael Ballhaus obituary

Cinematographer who brought dynamism to the films of Scorsese and Fassbinder

The cinematographer Michael Ballhaus, who has died aged 81, helped to realise the work of two visionaries: Rainer Werner Fassbinder, with whom he made 15 films, and Martin Scorsese, for whom he shot seven, including the gruesome gangster drama Goodfellas (1990), which tested this exceedingly gentle man’s tolerance of violence. “I wouldn’t have done this movie with another director,” he said in 2010. “These discussions – whether there is enough brain in the blood – are so absurd that you almost want to throw up.” Their other pictures together included the lustrous Edith Wharton adaptation The Age of Innocence (1993), the grand-and-grubby period piece Gangs of New York (2002) and the thriller The Departed (2006), which won the best picture Oscar.

Much of the visual dynamism associated with Fassbinder and Scorsese must be credited also to Ballhaus. There are the complicated but elegant compositions in Fassbinder, »

Managing Editor

Martin Scorsese has been a force at the Oscars for decades now with nine films earning some sort of recognition by the Academy but his latest showing, Silence, is looking to be completely glanced over. There much evidence pointing to this happening — lack of precursor nominations, opening weekend box office numbers, domestic box office performance thus far, and critical evaluations. Let’s take a deep dive into these aspects and see if there’s any saving grace for Silence this awards season.

At this point, with the Academy currently voting for the Oscar nominations, signs are pointing to Silence getting completely get shut out. The Hollywood Reporter’s Scott Feinberg list the film as a frontrunner in any category — including the categories Scorsese’s films have been nominated in before. Those are best picture, »

Suffering on the Outside: Martin Scorsese’s "Silence"

12 January 2017 1:49 PM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

“About three in the afternoon, Jesus cried out in a loud voice, ‘Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani (which means, ‘My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?’)”—Matthew 27:46Rodrigues (Andrew Garfield), a Jesuit priest ministering in a 17th century Japan hostile to Christians, craves the sound of this voice, pining for a confirmation of his convictions: something—anything—to demonstrate that God, too, has not forsaken him. Accompanied by Garrpe (Adam Driver), a fellow priest, he enters Japan looking for his former mentor, Father Ferreira (Liam Neeson), who according to rumor apostatized at the hands of the Japanese authorities. Because the Japanese closed off their borders to “Christian” nations like England, Portugal and Spain, Garrpe and Rodrigues travel illegally from Macao to Japan, led by an enigmatic drunkard, Kichijiro (Yôsuke Kubozuka). Shortly after their arrival, the priests bear witness to excruciating acts of torture perpetrated against the local Japanese Christians. »

Martin Scorsese’s Lost Masterpiece: Remembering The King of Comedy

11 January 2017 6:50 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Silence getting the critics salivating, Sean Wilson examines what is possibly Martin Scorsese’s greatest – and almost certainly most underrated – film, The King of Comedy

Do portrayals of celebrity culture and fan worship get more lacerating and acute than 1983’s masterpiece The King of Comedy? Martin Scorsese’s follow-up to Raging Bull is quite brilliantly perceptive, taking the hatchet to narcissistic wannabes in the form of Robert De Niro’s seminal Rupert Pupkin whilst also taking us behind the curtain and depicting the loneliness that comes with those who’ve made a success of themselves. The latter is personified by Jerry Lewis’ alienated comic star Jerry Langford, one who can barely leave his New York apartment without vitriolic ‘fans’ wishing he gets cancer. In Scorsese’s utterly damning depiction of fame, there are no winners: neither aspiring stars nor established A-listers come out of this one clean.

Golden Globe TV Predictions: Who Will Win?

5 January 2017 12:04 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When it comes to predicting the Golden Globes, the only sure thing is to expect the unexpected. Hollywood Foreign Press voters are known for making bold choices (“Mozart in the Jungle,” “The Affair,” “Girls,” and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” have all won top series prizes in recent years), and shining the spotlight on newcomers (“Transparent,” “Mr. Robot,” and “Homeland” all triumphed at the Globes first before going on to Emmy glory). With that in mind we’ve parsed the tea leaves on this year’s impressive line-up of TV nominees to gauge who’s out front heading into Sunday.

Television Series – Drama

For the second year in a row, HBO’s epic “Game of Thrones” is the only returning nominee in this category. But the ratings powerhouse and Emmy champ has never won. Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. voters have an affinity for flashy new entries, and this year they’ve got an embarrassment of riches to choose from. Netflix »

The Best Trailers of 2016

2 January 2017 10:17 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It’s easy to bemoan the majority of trailers for giving away too much or, upon seeing the film, ending up with something far different than what was marketed. However, a few times a year, a trailer works on its own terms; as an impressive piece of editing in its own right and/or as the ideal tease for an highly-anticipated film. We’ve selected our 20 favorites from the last year, ranging from some of 2017’s biggest films to the best in arthouse and foreign films to a handful of surprises.

Check them out below and let us know which trailers you were most impressed with in 2016.

20. The Lost City of Z

A late contender to the list, this brief preview for The Lost of City of Z was perfect tease for James Gray‘s period epic. Giving us our first glimpse at Darius Khondji‘s stunning, shot-on-35mm visuals, »
