Film News: Gene Wilder of ‘Willy Wonka’ Fame Dies at 83

12 hours ago | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Los Angeles – The genius comedy of Gene Wilder was often in the subtlety. With a slow burn or a raised eyebrow, Wilder was able to draw big laughs. The star of “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory” and “Young Frankenstein” died in Stamford, Connecticut, according to his nephew in Los Angeles. He was 83.

Wilder was well into his thirties before the first big break came along in 1967, in the classic film “Bonnie and Clyde.” From there he was able to trade in his frizzy-haired persona in his co-starring role in Mel Brook’s “The Producers” (1968). It was his collaboration with Brooks that certified his legacy, with one-two punch of “Blazing Saddles” and “Young Frankenstein” in 1974. He was also held in high regard by a generation of children with his classic turn as the title character in “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory” (1971).

Goodbye, Gene Wilder: a few of our favourite rolesGoodbye, Gene Wilder: a few of our favourite rolesAmanda Wood8/29/2016 3:58:00 Pm

Gene Wilder, comic extraordinaire and accomplished actor, has died at the age of 83.

He’s been making us laugh on the big screen for as long as we can remember, playing iconic roles in classic films like Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Blazing Saddles, and Young Frankenstein. Wilder was an incredibly diverse comedian known for his penchant for collaboration with the likes of Richard Pryor and Mel Brooks.

We’ll never forget watching Wilder play Willy Wonka himself, bringing Roald Dahl’s vision to life in all his wacky craziness. With a career that spanned decades and mediums, Wilder was one of the most respected comics of his generation. He was married to SNL alum Gilda Radner until her untimely death, and the two undoubtedly made the funniest couple in Hollywood. »

Arthur Hiller (1923-2016) and "Making Love"

18 August 2016 5:22 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Arthur Hiller with his Jean Hersholt Huminatarian AwardOscar nominated Canadian born Hollywood director Arthur Hiller died yesterday at 92 years of age. Though he's best remembered for the 1970 mega-hit Love Story  -- so popular in its day it would have been equivalent to a Jurassic World at the box office today (no really) -- his career was actually quite varied. He did dramas, romances, buddy comedies, period pieces, you name it.

Among his best known films which is your favorite?

The Americanization of Emily (1964) The Out of Towners (1970) Love Story (1970) Plaza Suite (1971) Man of La Mancha (1972) Silver Streak (1976) The In-Laws (1979) Making Love (1982) Author! Author! (1982) Outrageous Fortune (1987) See No Evil, Hear No Evil (1989) 

Outrageous Fortune was probably my favorite of his films - Bette Midler & Shelley Long were so funny together --  but the film that's the most interesting, historically, is Making Love as it was the very first mainstream Lgbt film. »

Director Arthur Hiller, whose 'In-Laws' was a perfect comedy, dies at 92

17 August 2016 2:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Arthur Hiller was never the coolest filmmaker in the room. He leaves behind a list of films that were genuinely loved by audiences and an ocean of collaborators and friends who speak of him in glowing terms, and honestly, as a storyteller, what more could anyone ask? There’s certainly some cachet in the idea that you’re breaking new ground stylistically or you’re doing things that other people are ripping off or you’re part of some formal movement of deconstructionists. I like plenty of filmmakers who chase cool like it is oxygen, necessary for their entire existence. Arthur Hiller, though, was a meat and potatoes kind of guy, and he made movies that spoke to his optimistic view of who we could be as people, shot through with just a hint of cynicism at times. My personal favorite of his movies is The In-Laws, which I just rewatched a few weeks ago. »

Karlovy Vary Review: ‘Kills On Wheels’ Is ‘The Professional’ Meets ‘Murderball’

5 July 2016 9:28 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Shooting a hole straight through the gut of the traditional narrative of empowerment, Atilla Till’s “Kills on Wheels” effectively does for hyper-violent gangster thrillers what “Murderball” did for inspirational sports documentaries. It starts with a brilliantly cockeyed premise: If the world doesn’t believe that disabled people are capable of living among us, then the police might never imagine that disabled people are capable of killing among us, either. From that idea, Till spins a sloppy but uproariously clever urban fable, one that doesn’t sanctify or belittle the handicapped, but rather shines new light on that invisible population by inviting them to play the most visible of movie archetypes: assassins.

Janos Rupaszov (able-bodied Hungarian star Szabolcs Thuróczy, recently seen in last year’s “White God”) is a salty middle-aged badass unlike any the cinema has known before. On one hand, he’s a classic archetype: The beefy, aging »
