Tomorrow’s World: Part 1 – Why Terry Gilliam’s Brazil represents our near future

Tom Jolliffe on Terry Gilliam’s Brazil

Over the next week I will be looking at a selection of prescient films (and TV) which represent a cutting depiction of not only our present, but our near future. To start the ball rolling here, I consider Terry Gilliam’s masterpiece, Brazil. A look into a bleak, totalitarian future, filled with bureaucracy. Then next week in part 2, a breakdown of the societal and technological changes predicted in modern Science fiction such as Ex Machina, Black Mirror and more.

The beauty of Science Fiction is that it has the ability to tell a story that relates to the current world, but which can be set in a future of limitless possibilities. Until you reach 2015 and realise self drying clothes, flying cars and hover boards aren’t yet available, there’s no one to tell you, you’re wrong. Writers have been doing it for years.

Terry Gilliam Wraps On The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

  • TheMovieBit
Way, way back in 1998, Brazil and Twelve Monkeys director Terry Gilliam embarked on making The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, a very Gilliam-esque take on Miguel de Cervantes’ 16th century novel Don Quixote. With the original novel concerning an insane Spanish nobleman thinking himself to be a knight bringing back chivalry and justice to the world, Gilliam’s vision saw Johnny Depp as a 21st century marketing executive thrown back in time, and being mistaken for Quixote’s sire, Sancho Panza. Production began in September of 2000, quickly becoming one of the most disastrous shoots of all time. As chronicled in the documentary Lost in La Mancha, weather problems, nervous investors, and even the Spanish military added to the movie’s production woes. The final nail in the coffin came when Dox Quixote himself, Jean Rochefort, was diagnosed with a double herniated disc after attempting to act while riding a horse,

Get Shorty gets the TV show treatment as well

  • JoBlo
Wait, another film turning into a TV show? At this point no movie would surprise me. A Mrs. Doubtfire show? Sure. A Pulp Fiction anthology series? Bet there's already been a discussion. A Twelve Monkeys series? Shit, that's already a show! Now, to be fair, I can see Get Shorty working as a show moreso than others. For instance, the whole conceit of the film and upcoming show is that a gangster is trying... Read More...

Taken: how does the TV series measure up so far?

Craig Thomas Mar 7, 2017

Were we, ahem, taken by Amazon Prime's new TV version of the Liam Neeson action franchise?

Unless you’ve been living under a rock since 2008, you’ll all know about Taken. If anyone wants to point to the starting point of the so-called “geriaction” genre that has been nearly omnipresent for the last decade, they could do much worse than to start here. It was also the film that made Liam Neeson the brilliant but unlikely action star he remains to this day.

In Taken, Neeson plays Bryan Mills, the former CIA operative with a special set of skills who is in a fight against time (and the entire population of Albania, apparently) to rescue his kidnapped daughter before she disappears forever. It was an unexpected and profitable hit.

What Is the Best American Remake of a Foreign-Language Film? — Critics Survey

  • Indiewire
What Is the Best American Remake of a Foreign-Language Film? — Critics Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In dubious honor of “Sleepless,” a new Jamie Foxx vehicle that’s been adapted from Frederic Jardin’s “Sleepless Night,” what is the best American remake of a foreign-language film?

Joshua Rothkopf (@joshrothkopf), Time Out New York

Long before I knew and appreciated Jean Renoir, I was in love with “Down and Out in Beverly Hills,” a 1986 comedy based on “Boudu Saved from Drowning” that peppered the flow with some truly eye-opening ideas for Hollywood: class warfare, unequal police treatment, a neurotic dog with its own therapist. The movie holds up beautifully — it’s one of Nick Nolte’s quietest performances, and one

Looking back on ‘Donnie Darko’ with Director Richard Kelly

2001 saw the world introduced to Donnie Darko. The film, set in 1988, told the tale of a teenager weighed down by the knowledge that the world will end in twenty-eight days. The movie launched actor Jake Gyllenhaal as well as director Richard Kelly.

With Donnie Darko Kelly showcased a huge amount of talent, he wrote the film in addition to directing. Darko is a fantastic twisted tale of head scratching time-travel, filled with atmosphere, beautiful visuals and a killer British-heavy eighties soundtrack. It’s a movie that has stood the test of time and has recently been given a painstaking 4K restoration.

The restoration was a passion project for both Arrow Films and Richard Kelly, who curated the project. It really is a truly stunning release, spilling over with bonus content. To co-inside with the release we sat down with Kelly to delve into the history of the film, the oddities

Time Travel on TV Today, Ranked From Least to Most Tricky

Time Travel on TV Today, Ranked From Least to Most Tricky
Time is not on our side, especially in the era of “peak TV.” Perhaps this is why networks are hopping onto the time travel bandwagon. At this year’s network upfront presentations in May, four of the five broadcast networks plugged shows that revolved around a time travel element at their core.

Taking journeys through the fourth dimension is a concept that has appeared in fiction since the late 19th century, popularized by H.G. Wells’ novel “The Time Machine.” The continued appeal of time travel boils down to wish fulfillment: the desire to visit other eras like a tourist, the yearning to relive or change the past, the curiosity about the future and the ability to squeeze more experiences into our ephemeral lives.

Although Stephen Hawking and Carl Sagan disagree on whether time travel will someday be possible based on our apparent lack of visitors from the future, that hasn

Television has also mined time travel for all it’s worth, either as the central conceit […]

Bruce Willis: examining his recent straight-to-dvd movies

Kirsten Howard Jan 19, 2017

Most Bruce Willis movies right now seem to head to DVD almost immediately. We've found even more of them...

This article has been updated to include two new films - Precious Cargo and Marauders.

See related Split review M Night Shyamalan interview: Split, non-conformity, creative freedom

It’s not exactly clear when Bruce Willis went from being a big star whose name filled seats and sold tickets to being a guy whose name you see on the cover of so many direct-to-dvd and VOD outings (albeit ones that sometimes get a week or two in a cinema, in essence to promote the VOD release), but I’d like to go out on a limb here and say that Kevin Smith’s mouth might be partly to blame.

Terry Gilliam Saddles Up for ‘Don Quixote’ After 20-Year Journey

Terry Gilliam Saddles Up for ‘Don Quixote’ After 20-Year Journey
Updated: After nearly two decades of missteps and mishaps, filming on the latest iteration of Terry Gilliam’s ill-fated “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote” is due to start in October, with former Bond girl Olga Kurylenko added to a new cast that includes Adam Driver and Michael Palin.

Gilliam announced Wednesday that preparation on his pet project would begin next month and would be shot in Spain, Portugal and the Canary Islands, to be finished by Christmas. Portuguese producer Paulo Branco signed up earlier this year on the film, which is budgeted at $19 million.

“I want to get this film out of my life so I can get on with the rest of my life,” a jovial and relaxed-looking Gilliam said at a press conference in Cannes.

He told Variety that the film kept nagging at him despite his having completed other movies in the interim, such as 2013’s “The Zero Theorem.

John Ostrander: Back to the Future Tense

  • Comicmix
There’s a lot of time travel going on in pop culture these days. The CW has DC’s Legends of Tomorrow where a rag-tag group of misfits travel around with Doctor Who, excuse me, Rip Hunter Time Master, as he tries to stop the immortal villain, Vandal Savage, from killing his family. Oh, and to prevent Savage from really messing up the world… but mostly to save his own family.

In general, I like time travel stories and have ever since I saw The Time Machine (the 1960 one with Rod Taylor, not the 2002 version with Guy Pearce). A great variation on the H.G. Wells story was Time After Time, where H.G. Wells (played by Malcolm McDowell) comes to (then) modern day San Francisco chasing Jack the Ripper (David Warner) and encounters the ever adorable Mary Steenburgen.

I like time travel stories in movies, books, comics, and so on. One

Star Wars Episode 8: what can we expect from Rian Johnson's film?

Director Rian Johnson continues the Star Wars saga next year. DC takes a look at Johnson's earlier films to see what we can expect...

Like or loathe The Force Awakens, there’s no denying that at its heart, it’s very much a Jj Abrams movie. There are aspects of film and TV production that Abrams is generally acknowledged to excel at; likewise, there are elements for which he has repeatedly faced criticism over the years (insert tired, de rigueur joke about lens flare here. If. You. Must.). He’s great at world building - perhaps the most important element in establishing a new Star Wars trilogy is, y’know, making it feel like Star Wars. Sounds simple enough on paper but in a post-prequel world, we all now recognise that this seemingly simple hurdle is actually anything but. That said, Abrams did do an admirable job

Thrilling New Trailer For 12 Monkeys Season 2 Dives Deeper Into The Past

Change the past. Save the future. 12 Monkeys will return to Syfy when season 2 premieres on April 18, and in order to ramp up the excitement, the network has premiered a thrilling new trailer that dives deeper into the past and all the mysteries therein.

Welcoming back Aaron Stanford as James Cole – a role made famous by Bruce Willis in Terry Gilliam’s seminal feature film from 1995 – season 2 is poised to hop between various eras over the past 60 years, from the present day to a dystopian future and everything in between. Amanda Schull also stars Cassandra Railly, a loyal ally to Cole in his battle against the Army of the 12 Monkeys.

Rubbing shoulders with the likes of The Expanse, 12 Monkeys has become a strong fixture on the network’s slate as it begins to double down on the science fiction genre.
