Bad Lieutenants and Magnificent Sevens – the golden rules of the cinematic remake

31 December 2009 2:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Magnificent Seven, The Ring, Psycho, The Preacher's Wife – some remakes are an improvement, some are an abysmal waste of time. Joe Queenan judges the pack

In 1992, Abel Ferrara made a very dark, very depressing movie called Bad Lieutenant. In it, Harvey Keitel played a morally bankrupt police officer who seeks redemption by investigating the rape of a nun who refuses to bring charges against her assailant, turning the Bad Lieutenant into the Mad Lieutenant. The film did nothing at the box office, and is remembered mostly because it is the motion picture in which Keitel shows off his penis. There was at the time no great demand for Keitel – a fine actor, but never a matinee idol – to show off his penis, even though it was a very splendid penis indeed, nor has there been any grassroots groundswell of support for this sort of thing afterwards.

There was much hullabaloo with the rumors that Whitney Houston, he Whitney Houston, is set to visit Wisteria Lane with a recurring role on Desperate Housewives. It was reported that the come-backing diva was in negotiations with ABC people for a recurring role.

Reps for Desperate Housewives had denied these rumors and said no such thing is happening. Houston, who recently made a splash with her Oprah interview and new album, is of course no stranger to acting. Other than The Bodyguard, Waiting to Exhale, and The Preacher's Wife, she had made a cameo appearance as herself on Boston Public in 2003.

This year's Reel Current Award, which is presented by former U.S. Vice President Al Gore at the Nashville Film Festival, has been given to the documentary Garbage Dreams. Gore, a Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and the writer of An Inconvenient Truth, presents the award annually to a film that gives outstanding insight into a contemporary global issue.

Garbage Dreams follows three teenage boys born into the trash trade and growing up in the world's largest garbage village, on the outskirts of Cairo in Egypt. It is the home to 60,000 Zaballeen, Arabic for "garbage people." The Zaballeen survive by recycling 80 percent of the garbage they collect.

'Garbage Dreams' portrays our desire to live with dignity and to continue to recover, recycle and protect the environment," representatives of the Zaballen said in a joint statement. "Our heartfelt thanks to the Nashville Film Festival and Vice President Al Gore for this wonderful honor, »
