The top 25 underappreciated films of 1989

28 April 2015 11:45 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From a crazy early Nic Cage role to a lesser-known film starring Robert De Niro, here's our pick of 25 underappreciated films from 1989...

Ah, 1989. The year the Berlin Wall came down and Yugoslavia won the Eurovision Song Contest. It was also a big year for film, with Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade topping the box office and Batman dominating the summer with its inescapable marketing blitz.

Outside the top 10 highest-grossing list, which included Back To The Future II, Dead Poets Society and Honey I Shrunk The Kids, 1989 also included a plethora of less commonly-appreciated films. Some were big in their native countries but only received a limited release in the Us and UK. Others were poorly received but have since been reassessed as cult items.

From comedies to thrillers, here's our pick of 25 underappreciated films from the end of the 80s...

25. An Innocent Man

Disney, through its Touchstone banner, had high hopes for this thriller, »

Watch: David Cronenberg's 23-Minute, 1976 TV Short 'The Italian Machine'

10 March 2015 3:27 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Oftentimes, it can be enlightening to go backwards through a great filmmaker’s filmography and see when and how their cinematic voice began to form. In some cases, it’s readily apparent how much a filmmaker has changed from their first directorial outing to their most recent output; just compare Stanley Kubrick’s “Fear and Desire” and “Eyes Wide Shut.” In other cases, a filmmaker arrives fully formed (see: Quentin Tarantino). For today’s trip to the filmmaking past, Dangerous Minds has shared one of David Cronenberg’s earliest works, an episode of an obscure CBC series. Originally aired as part of the CBC series “Teleplay,” “The Italian Machine” follows a group of devoted motorcycle enthusiasts who seek to liberate a priceless motorcycle from an art collector. By the time the episode aired, the Canadian director already had three feature films to his name, as well as the same number of TV assignments. »

Watch: Vintage 29-Minute Talk With Anthony Burgess & Malcolm McDowell About Stanley Kubrick's 'A Clockwork Orange'

5 March 2015 2:05 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Before its demise in 1980, “Camera Three” was a show focused on different forms of art that aired on Sunday mornings on CBS. In 1972, they spend an episode examining Stanley Kubrick’s infamous adaptation of “A Clockwork Orange,” and thanks to the fine people of Dangerous Minds, you can stream the whole episode on the futuristic device of your choice. Running half-an-hour long and featuring the trio of cinema historian William Everson, 'Clockwork' author Anthony Burgess, and the film’s star Malcolm McDowell, the episode aired around the same time of the film’s U.S. release in February of 1972,, notably, before any of the controversy surrounding the film occurred in the U.K. It’s an extremely informative and entertaining discussion of the sort that’s sorely missed on American television these days, especially post-Roger Ebert. Watch Camera Three’s “Examination of Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange” below and »

See the New York City subway through the eyes of Stanley Kubrick in 1946

30 January 2015 11:03 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Before The Killing, Dr. Strangelove, 2001: A Space Odyssey, or even The Shining, Stanley Kubrick was a young artist with a passion for images. While he hadn’t made some of the greatest films of all-time yet, it seems like the director had a keen eye for people and places around him.

Dangerous Minds posted a series of photographs on Thursday that were taken by the future director during the summer of 1946 in the New York City subway for Look magazine, a competitor to Life. According to the site, Kubrick was just 16 years old, thus would begin a relationship with the magazine that would last several years, until he began making movies in earnest around the age of 23, in the early 1950s.

The photographs feature a self portrait of the filmmaker followed by shots of the people moving through the subway and interacting with each other including a couple standing »
