The New World (Terrence Malick)

Terrence Malick is a filmmaker who has always valued photogenic artistry over narrative thrust, content to let his stories and characters wash over the audience like a crashing wave. There are few directors who indulge in such visual splendor, his creative aphorism seemingly being beauty for the sake of beauty. For Lubezki’s first collaboration with the director, The New World, it was also an opportunity for him to shoot (at least partially) on 65mm. »

Listen: Full-Length ‘Pulp Fiction’ Commentary Delves Into Tarantino’s Storytelling and Style

25 July 2016 8:25 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Many DVDs and Blu-rays have commentaries attached — with writers, directors, actors, make-up artists, etc. — that give you insider information on the work. They provide funny anecdotes, tell you how that crazy pan that turns into a track-and-follow shot was conceived, and why Actor A is wearing that weird hat in your favorite scene. Jokes aside, they are often fascinating insights into a production, letting you go behind the curtain of a set and experiencing the film in a new light. Generally, however, no one on a film’s own commentary delves into their film’s structure, writing, and methods of building written tension, as most filmmakers just don’t pat themselves on the back like that. That is what’s so intriguing about Darren from Must See Films‘ full-length commentary for Quentin Tarantino‘s seminal, ’90s-defining classic Pulp Fiction: he is staring critically (albeit lovingly) at the work while he watches. »

Ava DuVernay is Basically Owning 2016

And it’s only the summer.(Charley Gallay/Getty Images)

Ava DuVernay is having the best week ever. In fact, she’s having a pretty awesome year, which is much deserved for the Oscar nominated director and super awesome Power Woman. On Tuesday, her documentary The 13th was announced as the opening night film for the 53rd Annual New York Film Festival in September, making her the first African American director and first documentarian to accomplish such a feat. On Wednesday, we caught a glimpse of the first trailer for Queen Sugar, which DuVernay created and directed alongside Executive Producer and fellow Power Woman Oprah Winfrey. Through these projects and others in the pipeline, Ava DuVernay has proven she has her finger on the pulse of entertainment and culture, and is thus basically owning 2016.

The 13th is Ms. DuVernay’s first directorial effort since the Martin Luther King biopic Selma (2014), which was nominated for an Academy Award »

What Netflix Can Learn from The Video Store Experience

21 July 2016 9:26 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Netflix can save itself by going old school.Image Credit

BoJack Horseman’s third season debuts this Friday, and while the animated comedy is just one of many fan favorites, it is important to note that, originally, Netflix started as a movie provider. Streaming giants like Netflix, Amazon, and Apple took over the customers that browsed video store aisles, but the heart of what those stores represented has gone unreplaced. For all the items Netflix has at its disposal, and no-need-to-leave-home convenience, they can still do better.

My favorite day of the week when I was a child was Friday. Not because the school week was over, or that it dawned the beginning of a weekend, but because Friday was when my Dad would take my sister and me to the video rental place. The store itself was nothing special. It appeared to be a repurposed law office, but the mere sight of it was the highlight »

Night & Fog (Alain Resnais)

Ten years after the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps, filmmaker Alain Resnais documented the abandoned grounds of Auschwitz and Majdanek in Night and Fog (Nuit et brouillard), one of the first cinematic reflections on the Holocaust. Juxtaposing the stillness of the abandoned camps’ empty buildings with haunting wartime footage, Resnais investigates humanity’s capacity for violence, and presents the devastating suggestion that such horrors could occur again. – Criterion

Ava DuVernay Original Prison Documentary Set To Open The 54th New York Film Festival

19 July 2016 7:15 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The Film Society of Lincoln Center announces Ava DuVernay’s documentary The 13th as the Opening Night selection of the 54th New York Film Festival (September 30 – October 16), making its world premiere at Alice Tully Hall. The 13th is the first-ever nonfiction work to open the festival, and will debut on Netflix and open in a limited theatrical run on October 7.

Chronicling the history of racial inequality in the United States, The 13th examines how our country has produced the highest rate of incarceration in the world, with the majority of those imprisoned being African-American. The title of DuVernay’s extraordinary and galvanizing film refers to the 13th Amendment to the Constitution—“Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States . . . ” The progression from that second qualifying clause to the horrors of mass incarceration and »

Quentin Tarantino’s Retirement Fallacy

14 July 2016 10:44 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

We’re skeptical of his 10 films-and-done plan.

Quentin Tarantino has insisted for years now that he will make only ten films. The auteur director repeated these claims last weekend at the Jerusalem Film Festival. Tarantino had been invited to introduce Pulp Fiction and discuss his career as part of the Festival’s opening ceremonies.

During the wide ranging talk at the Jerusalem Cinematheque, Tarantino repeated his previous claims that he would be retiring after his tenth film. It must be noted, however, that he does count both Kill Bill films as one film; this leaves only two films remaining. In prior conversations about his imminent retirement, Tarantino said that he did not want to be an “old man filmmaker,” and that he does not want to “stay on the stage until people beg him to get off.” He has stated multiple times in the past that the quality of a director’s work declines over time and »

Quentin Tarantino on the Best Character He's Ever Written and His Retirement

12 July 2016 11:09 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

There is little doubt that writer/director Quentin Tarantino has created some compelling characters in his career. From Pulp Fiction'sJules Winnfield, the Bible-quoting hitman in search of his greater purpose, to Death Proof's Mike McKay, a murderer who kills his victims by locking them in the backseat of his car before crashing his car, there is no shortage of interesting folks to choose from. Love or hate his films, there is something interesting about most of the characters that populate his worlds.

Last Friday, the filmmaker spoke at Jerusalem Cinematheque to a sold out audience about his favorite character:

“[Hansa] Landa is the best character I’ve ever written and maybe the best I ever will write,” he said. “I didn’t realise [when I was first writing him] that he was a linguistic genius. He’s probably one of the only Nazis in history who could speak perfect Yiddish."

Quentin Tarantino Says to Expect Just Two More Films

Jerusalem — “Shabbat Shalom,” shouted Quentin Tarantino as he burst into the stage of the jam-packed Jerusalem Cinematheque to present “Pulp Fiction” and chat about his career, his relationship with actors and what keeps him going. The director, who was the subject of an homage during the festival’s opening ceremony July 7, delivered a humor-filled talk that underscored his passion and toughness. Here’s what he said about critics, dialogue and casting, among other topics.

About his claim that he only wants to make 10 movies:

“I’m planning on stopping at 10. So it’ll be two more. Even if at 75, if I have this other story to tell, it would still kind of work because that would make those 10. They would be there and that would be that. But the one he did when he was an old f—ing man, that geriatric one exists completely on its own in the »

Belladonna of Sadness (Eiichi Yamamoto)

It all begins with Once Upon a Time. Such a simple introduction for Belladonna of Sadness, a 1973 Japanese animated feature whose newfound legacy includes a decades-long disappearance, a dramatic re-emergence, and a growing reputation as a frenzied, pornographic freakout. The final entry in anime elder statesman Osamu Tezuka‘s erotic Animerama trilogy has remained largely unknown to even the most die-hard cult cinephiles, a fate determined after its commercial failure bankrupted Tezuka’s production company, »

Warner Bros. Teams With BuzzFeed For Brother Orange Movie

11 July 2016 2:48 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Brother Orange, an international story of friendship and a bona fide online phenomenon, is getting the big screen treatment.

The Hollywood Reporter has the scoop, confirming that Warner Bros. and BuzzFeed are joining forces for the feature, which is based on Matt Stopera’s titular BuzzFeed article about a stolen iPhone that spawned a worldwide search for selfies, iCloud feeds and orange trees.

The story goes that, two years ago, Stopera’s mobile was stolen at a New York bar, leading the writer and DJ to trace the digital footprints of a mysterious thief all the way to China. It didn’t take long before the globetrotting search went viral – such is the Internet way – leading to spike of 20 million views in only 24 hours.

Fast forward to the point where Stopera was united with the Chinese man, who he aptly dubbed Brother Orange due to his tendency for taking selfies beside fruit trees, »

Quentin Tarantino Clarifies His Retirement and Why He Almost Pulled the Plug on ‘Inglourious Basterds’

11 July 2016 8:03 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

When not working on a new film, directors will generally, well, talk about their other films. The beauty of a retrospective discussion is that filmmakers tend to be less filtered, as they both have that project in their rearview and are not trying to sell it to audiences or critics. Coming off of The Hateful EightQuentin Tarantino recently sat down at the Jerusalem Film Festival this past weekend to discuss his career, including his attempts at genre breaking and namely Inglourious Basterds — as well as the film he was there to screen, Pulp Fiction.

In the candid chat (via Times of Israel and Screen Daily), he reiterated his adamancy of stopping filmmaking after his tenth film, which means he has two left, but that he may return at 75 with “another story to tell.” However, he states, this would be a “geriatric” film, and that it essentially shouldn’t really »

Quentin Tarantino Reveals Casting Issue That Almost Kept ‘Inglourious Basterds’ From Being Made

11 July 2016 7:08 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds” almost didn’t happen. On Friday, the writer-director made an appearance at the Jerusalem Film Festival to introduce a screening of “Pulp Fiction” and told the crowd how he was one week away from pulling the plug on the 2009 war drama, The Times of Israel reports.

At issue was the character of Hans Landa, a “linguistic genius” in the film who had to be played by a German actor, according to Tarantino. “I wanted Germans, playing Germans, speaking German,” he told the Times. The tricky part was that Landa had to not only speak authentic German but also deliver a lot of lines in English, many of which required perfect comic timing and delivery due to their “poetic quality,” according to the director.

“I was getting to be kinda worried,” he said. “Unless I found the perfect Landa, I didn’t want to make the movie. »

Quentin Tarantino thrills Jerusalem festival audience

9 July 2016 11:00 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Tarantino revealed the best character he’s ever written and discussed retiring after 10 movies.

Hollywood icon Quentin Tarantino regaled a sold-out crowd at Jerusalem Cinematheque on Friday with tales from his directing career and his enduring love for cinema.

The famously loquacious film-maker spoke with enthusiasm and energy about his craft, comparing his method to that of a 13-year-old child imagining writing an episode of his favourite TV series.

“If you’re a kid, you don’t know any of the rules and regulations, you just want to make the greatest Star Trek episode ever, a wild, crazy version of it — that actually sounds fucking exciting,” said the director, whose nine features include debut Reservoir Dogs, Django Unchained and The Hateful Eight. “My take on genre is not dissimilar; I want to deliver the pleasures that are there but I want to do it my way.”
