30. Conspirators of Pleasure (1996)

Directed by: Jan Švankmajer

We’ve already seen two films from Jan Švankmajeron the list, but this elaborate movie about a number of separate, but connected people takes the cake. Conspirators of Pleasure follows six people, each with their own incredibly unsettling fetish. A letter carrier ingests dough balls every night before bed. A clerk is obsessed with a new anchor and creates a machine that pleasure him while he watches her. That anchorwoman has an odd obsession with live carp. One customer of the clerk’s practice paper mâché voodoo with a chicken costume and a doll resembling his neighbor. The neighbor has a doll of him that she brutalizes. Finally, the anchormwoman’s husband rubs homemade contraptions to rub all over his body. Conspirators could simply be a character study that, while still strange, would not be nearly as creepy. Švankmajer’s known for his animation and puppetry, »

Interview: Steven Soderbergh and Clive Owen on building the world of 'The Knick'

5 August 2014 9:07 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The opening minutes of "The Knick" throw down a gauntlet.  We're introduced to Clive Owen's John Thackery and his distinctive mustache at a red filtered opium den in 1900 New York City. Accompanied by an anachronistic score from Cliff Martinez, Thackery heads off in a carriage, removing his white leather shoes to shoot up between his toes. In no time, Thackery has reached the Knickerbocker Hospital, where he's thrust into the middle of a placenta previa surgery, like all surgeries in the period, a harrowing and bloody prospect. You're in or you're out. There are no in-betweens. Steven Soderbergh, who directed (and shot and edited) the entirety of the first "Knick" season, wouldn't have it any other way. "[T]he first seven minutes of the first episode contain the sort of DNA of the whole show. If you're not down with how those first seven minutes go you're going to have trouble, »

‘The Knick’, the newest Cinemax series from Steven Soderbergh, releases four new teasers

4 March 2014 2:28 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

One of the most well-known directors over the past 20 years has been Steven Soderbergh. With movies such as Schizopolis, The Limey, Ocean’s Eleven, The Informant!, and Haywire in his resume, many film fans were saddened to hear of his retirement from feature filmmaking. Fans of Soderbergh, however, were excited to hear that the filmmaker would continue to work, this time on the small screen, working with Cinemax as a producer and director on the new series The Knick. Created by Jack Amiel and Michael Begler, the series stars Clive Owen, Juliet Rylance, Steve Garfanti, and Cara Seymour. Four teasers for the series have now been released, and can be seen below.

Criterion Collection: King of the Hill | Blu-ray Review

25 February 2014 7:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

After a pair of edgy indies and a Palme d’Or to boot, Steven Soderbergh was given his first opportunity to bed down with the studio system and take advantage of the much deeper pockets that such an opportunity affords, but no one expected that under the watch of Universal the young auteur would make the polished and saccharine King of the Hill his first project. Adapted from A. E. Hotchner’s depression era memoir of the same title in which a preadolescent boy named Aaron is faced with the harsh realities of true poverty, Soderbergh’s first studio effort remains a wholesome oddity within a filmography that seems increasingly chameleonic, but rarely sentimental. After the subversion of Sex, Lies, and Videotape and the experimentalism of the bio-pic Kafka, the chances that his next film would boast the fluffiness of a made for TV afternoon special about how hard it »

Slamdance Festival at 20: Alt Fest Shows Rebel Roots

17 January 2014 10:05 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Slamdance co-founder Peter Baxter recalls 10 moments that defined the event’s first 20 years.

1995

Failure Can Be A Friend

Instead of walking away into the sunset when we didn’t get our films into Sundance, a wild bunch of film- makers got together to make a change. We didn’t know our guerrilla upstart would make it through 1995, let alone begin a 20-year movement. After we got through the first year, we found the desire to help other filmmakers like us.

1996

Technology

The opening of Slamdance ’96 didn’t go well. Our projectionist had a heart attack, and his 35mm projector broke down with him. This left co-founder Dan Mirvish and Steven Soderbergh in charge of running projection operations on opening night. After Dan got a shock sticking a screwdriver in the wrong place, Steven somehow got the projector fired Slamdance Festival at 20: Alt Fest Shows Rebel Rootsup for “The Daytrippers’” world premiere. »
