Canon Of Film: ‘Playtime’

12 September 2017 1:26 AM, PDT | Age of the Nerd | See recent Age of the Nerd news »

In the second edition of Canon Of Film, we take a look a Jacques Tati‘s ‘Playtime’. For the genesis of Canon Of Film, you can click here.

Playtime” (1967)

Director: Jacques Tati

Screenplay: Jacques Lagrange and Jacques Tati; with addition English dialogue by Art Buchwald

Jacques Tati’s ‘Playtime‘ is clearly a masterpiece, but I think almost nobody can actually master it. According to film scholar Noel Berch, ‘Playtime‘, doesn’t have to just be seen multiple times, but has to be seen from several different points in the theater itself. The movie is all action. Not the way we normally think of action, but “action” in terms of filling up the screen. To watch one thing – usually in the foreground – means you’re missing many things happening in the background, and vice-versa.

The most expensive French film made at the time, the film’s box office failure would eventually bankrupt Tati. »

New Academy President John Bailey is Willing to Ask if Movies Need Theaters For Oscar Qualification, and Other Radical Ideas

6 September 2017 7:42 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

As words like film, negative, celluloid, unspool, and reel become increasingly archaic, even the venerable Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences realizes that it needs to evolve. At the Telluride Film Festival, I sat down with new Academy president John Bailey to discuss what he has in mind. Here’s what we can expect from the 75-year-old cinematographer of “The Big Chill” and “Groundhog Day,” who is proud to be the rare filmmaker representing the Academy board.

(Re)Define the motion picture

Bailey is a realist as much as a cineaste. At Telluride, he appreciated Paul Schrader’s well-reviewed “First Reformed” — but fully supported the possibility that the film would go to Netflix. “It’s very unlikely the studios would pick it up,” said Bailey. “In reality, Netflix and Amazon have now become the studios that have the courage to make the film nobody else would make.”

Yes, You Again... And Again... And Again

29 August 2017 1:02 PM, PDT | www.culturecatch.com | See recent CultureCatch news »

Weeks before it closes, I got a chance to catch up with Groundhog Day, The Musical.

[I'm tempted to simply repeat the above sentence 28 times but will fight the urge!]

I guess it makes no sense to question why there was an imperative to create a musical out of Groundhog Day, The Film which, in itself, is hardly worthy of such an effort.  Unless, that is, you had Bill Murray to star -- again. Asking the question "why" seems churlish.

The show itself is actually pretty good. It's cute. It's fun. It features a tremendously winning performance from the tremendously winning Andy Karl who, truth be told, created a new Phil Connors that didn't have me longing for the iconic Bill Murray. That's quite a feat. And kudos to the super-talented Andy Karl for pulling it off.

If only it was shorter.

At 2:45 (with intermission), it is an hour longer than the movie, and you might say that the movie itself extended the »

31 Scene-Stealing Animals in Movies and TV (Photos)

26 August 2017 7:35 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Even when a the focus of a film or TV show is on its star humans, cameos and small parts by animals often grab attention away from headlining actors. Click through to see our list of scene stealing animals: Billy Crystal‘s character in the 1991 comedy “City Slickers” adopts a calf and names him Norman. Once Punxsatawny Phil poked his head above ground, all hell broke loose — at least in one of the seemingly infinite amount of days Bill Murray endured in the 1993 comedy “Groundhog Day.” The appearance of the cat in the season finale of HBO crime drama “The Night Of” was one of. »

‘Groundhog Day: The Musical’ Review: A Splendid, High-Spirited Retelling of a Classic

24 August 2017 11:30 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

The Groundhog Day musical is a joyful experience about one huge jerk. As Bill Murray’s take on the same character does in the Harold Ramis film classic, Phil eventually learns his lessons, but this stage adaptation from director Matthew Warchus, playwright Danny Rubin, and composer Tim Minchin turn his cantankerousness up a couple of notches before […]

Doug Liman Says ‘Edge of Tomorow’ Sequel Couldn’t Have Happened Without Fans

23 August 2017 6:23 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

You might have missed the exhilarating work director Doug Liman, and his stars Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, gave us in the summer of 2014 with “Edge of Tomorrow.” The film only earned $90 million at the box-office, and while you might have dismissed the film as a sci-fi “Groundhog Day,” you weren’t exactly wrong. However, Liman’s film was more than just a gimmick.

'A Day' ('Ha-Roo'): Film Review

22 August 2017 2:46 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Recent years have seen a resurgence of interest in Groundhog Day-style plots, with both tiny indies and major Hollywood productions sticking their heroes in time loops that threaten to replay the same day over and over into infinity. First-time filmmaker Cho Sun-ho finds something to add to this mini-genre with A Day, in which a man desperately reliving the day of his daughter's death soon learns that another man's tragic time-loop intersects his own. Despite some regional ingredients (musical, for the most part) that won't play as well in the States, the South Korean import has plenty of appeal for »

BBC Culture Names the Top 100 Comedies of All Time, From ‘Some Like It Hot’ to ‘Airplane!’

22 August 2017 6:53 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“Well, nobody’s perfect,” may be the last line of “Some Like It Hot,” but BBC Culture’s newest list of the 100 greatest comedies of all time comes pretty darn close. Billy Wilder’s cross-dressing buddy comedy earned the most votes, but the rest of the list is as robust and varied as one would hope, containing slam dunk smash hits as well as lesser known hidden gems.

The survey included responses from 253 film critics internationally, with freelancers writing in from Syria, Azerbaijan, and Montenegro. For a deeper dive into your favorite critics’ comedic tastes, each individual top ten list is also available for perusal. IndieWire’s Eric Kohn, David Ehrlich, and Kate Erbland participated; their number one picks were “City Lights,” “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” and “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation,” respectively.

The 100 Greatest Comedies of All-Time, According to BBC’s Critics Poll

22 August 2017 5:43 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After polling critics from around the world for the greatest American films of all-time, BBC has now forged ahead in the attempt to get a consensus on the best comedies of all-time. After polling 253 film critics, including 118 women and 135 men, from 52 countries and six continents a simple, the list of the 100 greatest is now here.

Featuring canonical classics such as Some Like It Hot, Dr. Strangelove, Annie Hall, Duck Soup, Playtime, and more in the top 10, there’s some interesting observations looking at the rest of the list. Toni Erdmann is the most recent inclusion, while the highest Wes Anderson pick is The Royal Tenenbaums. There’s also a healthy dose of Chaplin and Lubitsch with four films each, and the recently departed Jerry Lewis has a pair of inclusions.

Check out the list below (and my ballot) and see more on their official site.

NYC Weekend Watch: Deeper Into ‘Nocturama,’ ‘Memories of Murder,’ ‘Stop Making Sense’ & More

17 August 2017 8:59 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.

Film Society of Lincoln Center

Go “Deeper Into Nocturama” and see Bertrand Bonello’s influences, including Lynch, Kiarostami, and Carpenter.

“’77” winds down with 3 Women and The Devil, Probably.

Museum of Modern Art

Dark City, Groundhog Day, and more play in the sci-fi series.

BAMcinematek

The Demme series continues, including Stop Making Sense.

Physically “Naked” with Not Much Steam to Run On

17 August 2017 12:37 PM, PDT | Age of the Nerd | See recent Age of the Nerd news »

(Aotn) There’s something about some of Marlon Wayans’ career choices this decade that could understandably be seen as “frustrating.” The youngest of the Wayans brothers has demonstrated a great knack for physical comedy (the first two entries in the Scary Movie franchise and even the goofy yet riotous White Chicks) and an equally impressive potential as a serious actor (his dramatic turn in Requiem for a Dream), but his latest – the declining Haunted House movies and the abysmal Fifty Shades of Black, which actually managed to make the series it’s spoofing look like Last Tango in Paris by comparison – are a an embarrassing nose dive in comedic standard. Enter Michael TiddesNaked, not the 1993 Cannes winner by Mike Leigh, Netflix’s latest comedic offering and a breath of stale air that actually manages to find a hint of freshness and showcase some of the good qualities of Mr. »

6 Challenges Facing New Academy President John Bailey

15 August 2017 11:14 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As new Academy president John Bailey opens up about what he plans to do in his new job, we read the tea leaves. He faces an unusually tumultuous time, as the Academy confronts multiple challenges, from the industry’s transition to digital, and pressures from ABC to increase viewership of the Oscar show, to the need to raise more funding to build the troubled $400 million Academy Museum at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Here are Bailey’s main concerns. So far, he seems more than up to meeting this new assignment.

1. Will the Academy change its diversity outreach?

No. As someone who has long hired men and women of different ethnic, socio- economic, and racial backgrounds, Bailey supports Academy CEO Hudson’s outreach imperative via the A2020 program which is designed to double the Academy’s diverse membership by 2020. He’s proud of such Academy efforts as the Academy Gold internship program, »
