The Kindergarten Teacher | Review

Dangerous Minds: Lapid’s Sophomore Film a Bizarre, Engrossing Character Study

Repressed desires find an unexpected outlet in Israeli director Nadav Lapid’s sophomore film, The Kindergarten Teacher, a sometimes mystifying character study. The director’s 2011 debut, Policeman, was a topical glance at social unrest in Israel and took three years before it saw a theatrical release in the Us, nearly a month after his second title saw a premiere outside of competition in the 2014 Cannes Critics’ Week. Lapid once again conveys a knack for presenting us with unsettling behavior, this time around with such gradual displacement we feel uncomfortably complicit in our close observation of what plays out like a tranquil psychotic break. Intimate and at times quite pointedly critical as concerns the lavish worship and inaccurate interpretation of artistic intention, Lapid continues to assert an idiosyncratic perspective as offbeat as it is potentially off-putting.

How Showgirls (eventually) turned into a hit movie

6 July 2015 10:22 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Showgirls is reportedly the biggest-selling MGM DVD of all time. So how did it go from flop to hit?

In the build up to the release of Paul Verhoeven's now-infamous 1997 movie, Showgirls, the signs were looking positive. Uniting the creative team - Verhoeven and writer Joe Eszterhas - who had generated the gigantic hit, Basic Instinct, MGM was gearing itself up for a further success. In the run up to the film's release, the Showgirls website was proving to be one of the most successful to date on the-then burgeoning public world wide web, with over a million people accessing the site. This at a point where AOL had barely pressed a million of those infamous CD-ROMs promoting its service, we'd wager.

So confident was MGM that it had a must-see movie on its hands that it didn't insist on Showgirls being cut for an R-rating. As such, it »

If you haven.t had a chance to see Jurassic World yet, (although box office numbers would imply that you have), we.ve got another dinosaur movie to tide you over. Remember how much fun you had playing with action figures as a kid, creating characters and stories and entire new worlds to play in? Yeah, turns out the whole time, you were just phoning it in. We.ve now all been shown how playing with toys is supposed to be done thanks to the release of a 1993 home movie where two friends recreated the original Jurassic Park using their toys and hand-drawn backdrops. Check out the video for a 6 minute edit of what they created. Dangerous Minds has the story about two friends, David Chakris and Michael Raisch, who got together in 1993 with a VHS video camera and created a faithful retelling of Steven Spielberg.s groundbreaking film in »

Watch: 1990s VHS Kids Remake Of Steven Spielberg's 'Jurassic Park'

25 June 2015 11:06 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

We already know about the two kids that spent seven years making a shot-for-shot remake of “Raiders of the Lost Ark” in the '80s, as immortalized in “Raiders!: The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made.” But they’re not the only ones to have remade a Steven Spielberg film in their own likeness. As the run-up to “Jurassic World” proved, a generation of filmgoers fell in love with Spielberg’s “Jurassic Park” as children, and Dangerous Minds has shared more evidence that if you bring two Spielberg fans together with a camera, a crude remake will result sooner rather than later. Read More: Interview: Colin Trevorrow Talks 'Jurassic World,' Sequels, Spielberg's Support, Nostalgia, Ruining Your Childhood & More  In this case, the filming process took place over six months during the summer of 1993, using toys and hand drawn backdrops yielding multiple versions of the film »

How Radiohead Got Their Name Thanks to the Psychic Powers of Stephen Tobolowsky

29 May 2015 3:12 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

The origins of band names are often fascinating, and many of them come from movie titles or elements of movies. Some of the best choices, in my opinion, are Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (from The Wild One), Mogwai (from Gremlins), Duran Duran (from Barbarella), Veruca Salt (from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory), The Misfits (from The Misfits) and The Dismemberment Plan, which comes from a line in Groundhog Day spoken by actor Stephen Tobolowsky as the character Ned Ryerson. I now have a new favorite band name origin, though, and it also involves Tobolowsky, years before his most memorable turn in that Bill Murray movie. It turns out, according to Tobolowsky himself, that Radiohead is pretty much named for his psychic powers. Dangerous Minds relayed the...

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...

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 »
