Wong Kar-Wai’s Color Obsession Honored in One Mesmerizing Supercut — Watch

1 February 2017 9:51 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Legendary Chinese filmmaker Wong Kar-Wai is renowned for his vivid use of color, which the kind folks over at Glass Distortion have made abundantly clear in a sweeping new compilation titled simply, “Wong Kar Wai: Color Obsession.” As the filmmaker’s varied spectrum of bright hues and darker tones splash across the screen, one can see how crucial this colorful aesthetic is to creating the distinct mood and atmosphere for which his films are known.

The Chinese auteur’s obsession with color is well documented, as in this 1998 interview with Bomb Magazine, when he compared “Chungking Express” (1994) to “Fallen Angels” (1995) by discussing both films’ palettes: “Whereas ‘Chungking’ was sunshiny and suffused with bright, lovely daytime colors, ‘Fallen Angels’ is more about neon, and night time, and grunge.”

Watch: 1-Hour Directors Roundtable With Damien Chazelle, Barry Jenkins, Mel Gibson & More

17 January 2017 6:12 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It’s the heat of the awards season, so you know the drill. The Hollywood Reporter gets one too many moderators and misses out on a number of actual contenders for a certain award, but gathers whoever is easily available to discuss their craft in an extensive roundtable. The latest in this series is for the directors and although there’s no Denis Villeneuve, Martin Scorsese, Kenneth Lonergan, Jim Jarmusch, Mike Mills, Kelly Reichardt, Paul Verhoeven, etc. in sight, they have gathered a few of the top helmers of the year.

Most notably we have Barry Jenkins (Moonlight), Damien Chazelle (La La Land), and Denzel Washington (Fences), who are joined by Mel Gibson (Hacksaw Ridge), along with the directors of a few early fall releases that have all but been forgotten by now, Mira Nair (Queen of Katwe) and Oliver Stone (Snowden). They discuss when they first fell in love »
