Fireworks Wednesday (Asghar Farhadi)

After a festival tour back in 2006, Asghar Farhadi’s Fireworks Wednesday was theatrically re-released by the newly established Grasshopper Films, and now it’s arriving on DVD. The drama is another precisely calibrated, culturally specific demonstration of Farhadi’s skills in constructing empathy machines. Further in line with the director’s filmography, this story has a nesting-doll structure that combines ingrained social hierarchies, domestic drama, and a tragic intersection of misunderstandings. And while it »

Memo to Distributors: Buy These 2017 Berlin Film Festival Movies

20 February 2017 9:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Other Side of Hope”

Winsome, sweet, and often very funny, the second chapter of Aki Kaurismäki’s unofficial trilogy about port cities is a delightful story about the power of kindness that unfolds like a slightly more somber riff on 2011’s “Le Havre.” The Finnish auteur’s latest refugee story begins with a twentysomething Syrian man named Khaled (terrific newcomer Sherwan Haji), who escapes from Aleppo after burying most of his family and sneaks into Finland by stowing away in the cargo hold of a coal freighter. His path eventually crosses with Wikström (Sakari Kuosmanen), a newly single restauranteur who could use a helping hand. Part Roy Andersson and part Frank Capra, “The Other Side of Hope” deepens the director’s recognition of how immigrants and refugees are victimized by their invisibility, and its timeliness could help it strike a chord with domestic audiences. “Le Havre” grossed more than »

My favorite best picture Oscar winner: Midnight Cowboy

20 February 2017 5:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Continuing a series of Guardian writers’ all-time Academy picks, Gwilym Mumford explains why the 1970 winner remains a vital and progressive triumph

The Oscars best picture category has a long and ignoble history of favouring the inoffensive over the revolutionary – Citizen Kane lost out to How Green Was My Valley. Forrest Gump defeated Pulp Fiction. The Third Man, 2001: A Space Odyssey and Do The Right Thing failed to even be nominated for best picture. (It’s a cruel world when Crash can win the thing and that lot can’t even get a look in). As a rule, the Academy tends to be behind the times – #OscarsSoWhite is recent evidence of that.

All of which makes the decision to crown Midnight Cowboy best picture in 1970 seem, in retrospect, like such a welcome aberration. It was a rare moment when Hollywood saw the coming changes in cinema and, rather than ignore »

Berlin Film Review: ‘Have A Nice Day’

17 February 2017 12:08 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s hardly the first place you’d expect a Goethe reference, but the fizzy, ’80s-influenced synthpop song that closes Liu Jian’s animated Berlin competition title “Have a Nice Day” (written, like all the film’s irresistible soundtrack cues, by composer David Liang of the Shanghai Restoration Project) does feature the chorus line, “I am the sorrows of young Werther.” But then, incongruity is sort of the name of the game here: Liu’s storyline may be a slight and generic madcap gangster/hitman/thief movie, but the details of aesthetic design and character interaction flesh it out into something a little more wittily resonant, if not exactly deep. The pointed inventiveness of the carefully premeditated form doesn’t just compensate for the banality of the content, it becomes the content.

Against crisply drawn yet richly textured backgrounds, the actual animation (as in, those things that move on screen »

Quentin Tarantino Meets Wong Kar-Wai With Bloody Animated Chinese Drama ‘Have a Nice Day’ — Berlinale 2017 Review

17 February 2017 11:49 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

If Quentin Tarantino remade “Pulp Fiction” as an animated movie set in modern day China, it might look something like “Have a Nice Day,” an ensemble drama about the criminal underworld.

The second feature from Liu Jian (“Piercing I”) presents a series of interlocking tales in a pulpy display of desperate characters, all drawn together by a typical device — money — and the reckless behavior caused by it. The vivid palette of Liu’s animation conveys a comic book-like exuberance to the proceedings, but the underlying socioeconomic frustration is very real.

What It’s Like Shooting A Martin Scorsese Film, According to Oscar Nominee Rodrigo Prieto

17 February 2017 9:43 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Shooting a movie with an icon like Martin Scorsese has to be a dream for any cinematographer, but it’s just another day at work for Rodrigo Prieto. The 51-year-old Mexican cinematographer rose to prominence lensing movies for Alejandro González Iñárritu and Ang Lee, but in the last several years he has emerged as the go-to Dp for none other than Scorsese. He’s been behind the camera for “The Wolf of Wall Street,” the “Vinyl” pilot and “Silence,” for which he’s Oscar nominated this year, and he’s now in production on “The Irishman.”

Great Job, Internet!: Traumatize your kids with R-rated movie scenes drawn in the style of a children’s book

16 February 2017 12:10 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

In his collection Movies R Fun!: A Collection Of Cinematic Classics For The Pre-(Film) School Cinephile, Pixar story supervisor Josh Cooley reimagined iconic moments from R-rated classics in the style of a children’s book. Now, Reddit has compiled a gallery of some of the book’s drawings, which feature scenes from the likes of Pulp Fiction, Alien, Drive, Fight Club, and more.

If there’s one thing that connects the movies represented, it’s that they all exist in a heightened reality that lends itself to the “anything goes” world of animation, whether that be Drive’s bold color scheme, Pulp Fiction’s outsize characterizations, or Alien’s alien, which is just a pair of googly eyes away from being an intergalactic pet.

What’s next? Stuffed Tyler Durden dolls? That would be awesome.

Meredith Baxter to Star in Dystopian Dramedy 'Genesis'

16 February 2017 11:12 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

The future is indeed female in Genesis, a new sci-fi dramedy from Audrey Evans.

“Imagine an individual cloning herself — it’s sort of an immaculate conception, if you will,” explains Meredith Baxter in a clip of the dramedy, which explores the extinction of the male species and the promise of an all-female society.

Robert Romanus, Suzanne Westenhoefer and Dana Goldberg are also set to star in the film, which is described as “a B movie with style” and “Orange is the New Black meets Pulp Fiction meets Enter the Dragon.” It is currently raising funds on Indiegogo.

Alamo Drafthouse, Kodak Partner on 35Mm Film Celebration (Exclusive)

16 February 2017 9:58 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

We live in a pixelated world. Much of our day is spent staring at watches, laptops, desktops, iPods, and iPads that offer up digitized video, newsfeeds, and Facebook posts. These pixels are even dominating the biggest screens of all, as more and more movie theaters abandon film for the convenience and cost savings of digital projection. But there remain purists, for whom the flicker and luster of film remains a vital component of the movie-going experience. Quentin Tarantino, for instance, once blasted digital projection, dismissing it as “just television in cinema” and predicting it would lead to the death of movies.

Well the “Pulp Fiction” director and his partisans should mark their calendars. Alamo Drafthouse is partnering with Kodak on the first-ever “Reel Film Day,” a celebration of 35mm film. Both companies say they see the advantages of digitization, but they also want to celebrate the look, flavor, and art of celluloid. »

Oscars Host Jimmy Kimmel Fesses Up: ‘I Once Snuck Into the Governors Ball’

15 February 2017 1:24 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

When Jimmy Kimmel walks into the annual Governors Ball after hosting the 89th Academy Awards on Feb. 26, it won’t be his first time at the glitzy post-show gala. But this time, he has an actual ticket.

“I snuck into the Governors Ball – I think it was in 1995,” the talk-show host tells People in this week’s issue.

A morning host for Kevin & Bean on Kroq radio at the time, Kimmel and Kevin “put on our tuxedos and we figured if we got there early enough we would become part of the scenery,” the star recalls.

Video Essay Makes the Case for Black-and-White Film Noir’s Influence on ‘Breaking Bad’ — Watch

15 February 2017 11:31 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“Have you ever heard somebody say, ‘I can’t watch black-and-white movies?'” asks the creator of the Now You See It YouTube channel in his latest video. Said video essayist takes issue with that mindset, and he’s here to explain why in just four minutes. “Black and white can do just as much as color,” he contends, and for Exhibit A he turns to film noir.

Our intrepid host uses examples of both good and bad parodies to make a point: “Saturday Night Live” got it wrong by using low-contrast black and white in a recent skit inspired by “Casablanca,” while an old “Calvin and Hobbes” comic strip mimicked the style much more skillfully.

Return to Montauk review – beached affair takes time to connect

15 February 2017 9:38 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Past lovers Nina Hoss and Stellan Skarsgård border on the unlovable in this slow-paced drama, but Volker Schlöndorff’s film rewards patience for its final twist

Volker Schlöndorff’s scalding film of The Tin Drum shared the Palme d’Or with Apocalypse Now in 1979. The director turns 78 next month and is no longer at the peak of his powers. But Return to Montauk proves that he still has it in him to startle and wrongfoot an audience.

What appears to be a clunky, tasteful, middle-aged rehash of Before Sunset, with two former lovers reunited after one of them writes a novel about their affair, turns out at the eleventh hour to have a sting in its tail. Schlöndorff and the novelist Cólm Toibín wrote the screenplay, which is adapted in part from the memoir Montauk by the late Swiss playwright and novelist Max Frisch, to whom the picture is dedicated. »

Arrival (Denis Villeneuve)

Within the alien subgenre, there lies another. Therein, knowledge is treasure and the fifth dimension is love. The major rule: once the mystery and the chills have subsided, the revelations are enlightening and the welcomes warm. Thankfully, Denis Villeneuve‘s Arrival is more worthwhile than that. The film juggles a bit of world-building with meaty, compelling characters while trying to make linguistics look cool. No easy task, but the film does so in a breeze »

Cameraperson (Kirsten Johnson)

A travelogue through one artist’s subconscious, Cameraperson is perhaps the most plural film of 2016 – a formal, tonal, situational, and pacing exercise that lulls viewers into thinking it’s set on one thing before turning towards seemingly new territory. And it never feels out-of-balance because director Kirsten Johnson has, by building this film around moments that “marked” her, granted such an intimate experience that it almost feels wrong to intellectualize much of anything that’s going on here, »
