Stanley Kubrick’s Civil War Trilogy ‘Downslope’ to Be Directed by Marc Forster

22 June 2015 12:16 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Marc Forster will direct and produce the Civil War drama “The Downslope,” based on an original screenplay written in 1956 by the late filmmaker Stanley Kubrick.

Forster — whose credits include “World War Z,” “Finding Neverland” and “Monsters Ball” — is developing the project as a trilogy and will produce the subsequent features.

Lauren Selig (“Lone Survivor”), Barry Levine (“Oblivion”) and Reneé Wolfe (“All I See Is You”) will be producing with Forster. Selig initiated the project with producers/rights holders Phil Hobbs (“Full Metal Jacket”) and Steve Lanning, who are also serving as producers.

The movie has the full support and encouragement of the Kubrick family. Kubrick wrote the script following the release of his allegorical war film “Fear and Desire” and prior to directing his World War I drama “Paths of Glory.” Both films were cautionary, anti-war stories.

“The Downslope” centers on a series of Civil War battles in the Shenandoah »

Jay’s Top Ten Conspiracy Films

4 June 2015 1:24 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

By: Jay Dyer

Some of these will be obvious, but are there insights in certain lesser-known films that shed light on real-world conspiracies?  My list will exclude all things alien, since I’m of the opinion the alien agenda is largely a bunch of bunk.  In selecting my favorites, I’ve tried to balance quality with subject matter, as some films may have a great concept with poor execution.  If you missed any of these or if they’re long-forgotten films you halfway watched with that sexy date 15 years ago, I recommend giving them a new look.

 

10.Conspiracy Theory. 1997.  Director Richard Donner has Mel Gibson as the tinfoil hat nutball seeking to uncover the truth about his own past.  Ultimately the film details the actual Mkultra program, with Captain Picard as the handler.

9. V for Vendetta. 2005. A Wachowski brothers work, V initiates Eve into the realities of the establishment’s corruption. »

Cool Videos: Awesome mash-up of The Grand Budapest Hotel and The Shining

1 June 2015 2:24 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

It is amazing just how alike Wes Anderson and Stanley Kubrick are as filmmakers. While there may not be many correlations, thematically, between Barry Lyndon and Eyes Wide Shut compared to The Royal Tenenbaums and Rushmore, from a technical standpoint these two directors have shown a lot of commonalities between their style, approach, and composition on screen. There is not better example to compare the two then... Read More »

Why 1999 was the best year in movie history

30 April 2015 8:40 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century? Check here for a complete list of our essays. The end of the 1990s was the end of an era on the big screen. The independent filmmaking movement that started the decade had taken full bloom and infiltrated the business. Major studios had begun to jump headlong into the "dependent" game, amping up prestige product and utilizing the awards season as a marketing tool. The blockbuster landscape at the summer multiplex had been interesting, full of original concepts (good and bad), but something else was on the way — a new overlord in the business of film, and one that would more or less make the age of the movie star (at least as we had come to know it) a thing of the past. For those reasons and a slew of others, »

Exclusive! Watch A Clip From Director's Commentary: Terror Of Frankenstein - From The Creators Of Room 237

20 April 2015 8:38 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Fans of Room 237, Rodney Ascher's fantastic documentary on the hidden conspiracy theories that may or may not lurk beneath the surface of Stanley Kubrick's The Shining, will no doubt already be chomping at the bit to get a look at his follow-up, The Nightmare, which premiered at Sundance earlier this year.Well we are going one better than that. Ascher and regular producing partner Tim Kirk have teamed up again for another oddball approach to the documentary medium, Director's Commentary: Terror of Frankenstein. An obscure 1970s adaptation of Mary Shelley's gothic masterpiece, Terror of Frankenstein is a real movie, starring Leon Vitali (Barry Lyndon, Eyes Wide Shut) and something of an unchampioned classic in Euro-horror circles. What Ascher, Kirk, and Tim's cousin Jay have done, is put...

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. »

Directors' Trademarks: Stanley Kubrick

26 February 2015 5:21 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

At least once a month, Cinelinx will chose one director for an in-depth examination of the “signatures” that they leave behind in their work. This week we’re examining the trademark style and calling signs of Stanley Kubrick as director.

Kubrick’s interest in visual arts began with photography before he became interested in filmmaking. He enjoyed making short films and became very proficient at doing so. Eventually he made his first feature film The Killing Fields (1953) as an exercise in low-budget filmmaking. That film was not a commercial success, and he had to work hard to get funding to keep working as a filmmaker. His next film, Killer’s Kiss (1955) involved a lot of experimentation, so much that it ended up eating into the budget and costing Kubrick a profit. As a result, he decided to work with a professional crew on his next film, The Killing (1956), which also did not become commercially successful, »

The Conversation: Drew Morton and Landon Palmer Discuss ‘The Killing’

7 February 2015 9:21 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Conversation is a new feature at Sound on Sight bringing together Drew Morton and Landon Palmer in a passionate debate about cinema new and old. For their second piece, they will discuss Stanley Kubrick’s film The Killing (1956).

Drew’s Take

Stanley Kubrick’s The Killing (1956) is not my favorite work by the visionary director. In fact, the film probably wouldn’t even make it onto a list of my top five Kubrick films. Yet, with a career that included such amazing films as Paths of Glory (1957),Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964),2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), Barry Lyndon (1975), and The Shining (1980), that’s not an indication that The Killing is a film of poor quality but an indication that Kubrick’s body of work comes the closest to cinematic perfection than any director I can think of. Thus, while The Killing »

2015 Sundance Trading Card Series: #42. James Ransone (Tangerine)

6 February 2015 8:30 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Eric Lavallee: Name me three of your favorite “2014 discoveries”…

James Ransone: Movie: Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut is an absolute masterpiece. 15 years ago it seemed like Kubrick was a washed up recluse, but he was just so far ahead of the curb. If you want proof just read some recent articles on Jeffery Epstein‘s sex scandal. Music: Godspeed You! Black Emperor “Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven“. I liked them in the late 90s but I didn’t realize how brilliant that record is. The tension and release in that record is close to orgiastic. I also liked Hamilton leithauser’s debut record. Book: “The Accidental Universe” by Alan lightman. He makes really complex physics accessible for dummy actors like me. It’s actually beautifully written as well.

Lavallee: In Tangerine, you take on the role of Chester. Could you describe your character’s view »

Learning From The Masters Of Cinema: Stanley Donen's Two For The Road

26 January 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Smart, stylish, insightful and brimming with technical inventiveness, Stanley Donen's Two For The Road is a wonderful examination of the modern marriage whose influence can still be felt in Hollywood cinema today, nearly 50 years after it was originally released.Inspired in part by his own marriage, screenwriter Frederic Raphael (Darling, Eyes Wide Shut) penned Two For The Road at the specific request of director Stanley Donen (Singing In The Rain, Charade), after seeing his earlier efforts in 1964's Nothing But The Best. According to Raphael, he deliberately wrote the script in random order, accentuating its episodic structure, as it revisits the various trips from London to the South of France by the same British couple.Mark Wallace (Albert Finney), a successful architect, and his wife Joanna...

The Conversation: Drew Morton and Landon Palmer discuss ‘Run Lola Run’

10 January 2015 9:17 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Conversation is a new feature at Sound on Sight bringing together Drew Morton and Landon Palmer in a passionate debate about cinema new and old. For their inaugural piece, they will discuss Tom Tykwer’s film, Run Lola Run (1999).

Landon’s Take

Amongst the many films included in 1999’s “year that changed movies,” Tom Tykwer’s Run Lola Run seems an essential text. Fifteen years ago, the film blew through national and arthouse borders, presenting an exhilarating image of an approach to filmmaking free from formal restraint or linear narrative logic. An engrossing exercise in style, Tykwer’s breakthrough film seemed to simultaneously beat Hollywood at its own game of fast-paced entertainment, integrate music video aesthetics harmoniously into the machinations of feature filmmaking, and present an art film thoroughly interested in film as an art form looking toward the 21st century, free from the modernist concerns that previously united festival-friendly European exports. »
