Watch Rare Spike Lee Interview on Tarantino Feud, Denzel Washington Chiming in + Sam Jackson Taking Sides

21 December 2015 3:50 PM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Thanks to Nasser Metcalfe (who conducted the interview with Spike Lee in 1999) for sharing this with me. As Metcalfe says, the interview occurred while Spike was promoting the then release of "Summer Of Sam," which also happened to be around the time when Spike's feud with Quentin Tarantino went public. Metcalfe asked Lee about his beef with Tarantino, and, in response, Spike revealed some things that may not be widely-known today, specifically, about Denzel Washington taking Tarantino to task on the set of "Crimson Tide," as well as Samuel L Jackson having to choose sides on the matter. It's a brief clip which Metcalfe just uploaded to YouTube a couple of days »

Venice Film Review: ‘The Clan’

6 September 2015 11:24 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Argentine powerhouse Pablo Trapero (“Carancho,” “White Elephant”) takes a case so upsetting many refused to believe it was possible and retells it in ghastly detail from the p.o.v. of the perpetrators in “The Clan,” a muscular, Hollywood-style account of the Puccio fiasco, in which a relatively well-to-do San Isidro family kidnapped their rich neighbors in order to extort ransoms from their relatives. Opening nearly 30 years after the Puccios’ sensational arrest, the film has been an explosive success back home, raising the bar for strongest opening ever for an Argentine film with half a million admissions in four days, before heading to competition berths at the Venice and Toronto film festivals, sure to propel this vicious Almodovar brothers-produced crime saga onto the world stage.

A clear factor in the pic’s success to date has been the near-total transformation of charismatic local star Guillermo Francella (“The Secret in Their Eyes”) into a stone-cold psychopath, »

Review: '54: The Director's Cut' With Ryan Phillippe, Salma Hayek, Mike Myers, Breckin Meyer, And Neve Campbell

2 June 2015 1:14 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Nostalgia in pop culture seems to operate on a twenty-year delay These days, there are a lot of callbacks to '90s movies, TV shows, video games, and more. Conversely, the 90s were all about the '70s, and during the latter part of the decade, there was a resurgence of movies that took place in the late '70s, complete with earworm disco tunes and bell-bottoms. The king of these films is of course Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Boogie Nights." Whit Stillman’s “The Last Days of Disco” was an even-tempered approach to relationships during, well, the disco days. Spike Lee combined a gritty thriller with an ensemble drama in the 1977-set “Summer of Sam.” Adam Rifkin pitted hard rockers and disco kids against each other in the underrated “Detroit Rock City”. Among these was 1998 oddity “54," about a young and naïve stud’s fish out of water experiences as »
