10 Ravishing Films Shot by ‘Carol’ Cinematographer Edward Lachman

23 November 2015 10:06 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Cinematographer Edward Lachman may not be a household name, though he undoubtedly should be. One of the most highly regarded directors of photography in the business, Lachman has collaborated with some of the best filmmakers of his generation: Steven Soderbergh, Todd Haynes, Todd Solondz, Paul SchraderSofia Coppola, Robert Altman, Werner Herzog, George Sluizer, Wim Wenders, Mira Nair, Ulrich Seidl, and Andrew Niccol — to name a handful.

His career began in 1975 by photographing the infamous Sylvester StalloneHenry Winkler Brooklyn gang cult-fave, The Lords of Flatbush. In the last 40 years, he’s carved out a truly varied résumé. For example: in 2002, Lachman co-directed Ken Park with filmmaker Larry Clark, before moving onto direct the exercise video Carmen Electra’s Aerobic Striptease in 2003.

Lachman’s most recent feature, Carol — his third partnership with Haynes, and perhaps his finest work — just entered a limited release, so there’s no better time to »

You Must Remember This returns with a new season on the history of MGM:

The Overnight and Creep director Patrick Brice stops by the Criterion closet:

Matt Zoller Seitz revisits The Limey:

“Tell me about Jenny,” Terence Stamp’s ex-convict Wilson demands in the opening moments of “The Limey.” But what follows is a confession in the form of prismatic memory shards—a brain-teaser, at times flirting with midnight movie stoner pretension, that somehow keeps both its storyline and its emotions clear, »

Interview: The cast of Everest on shooting in extreme conditions

14 September 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

A star-studded cast convened to bring one of history’s great mountaineering disasters to the screen in Everest.

Based on the May 1996 incident in which eight climbers from two different parties lost their lives when the world’s tallest summit was hit by a blizzard, Icelandic director Baltasar Kormákur’s (2 Guns) 3D epic features Jake Gyllenhaal and Jason Clarke as the experienced, but ultimately overwhelmed, guides of each team. Other climbers and concerned parties are played by Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, Keira Knightley, Robin Wright, Sam Worthington, Emily Watson and Michael Kelly — the latter plays Jon Krakauer, whose book Into Thin Air is one of several personal chronicles of the disaster.

Shot in Italy, Britain and Nepal, including at Everest’s South Base Camp when an even deadlier avalanche elsewhere on the mountain took 16 lives in 2014, the film is an epic depiction of nature’s power at its most awesome, »

Ranking the Swank Modernist Homes of L.A. Villains

29 June 2015 5:10 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In the second season of Nic Pizzolatto’s True Detective, now set in Los Angeles, entrepreneur-cum-criminal Frank Semyon (Vince Vaughn) lives in a pretty swank house. In fact, Los Angeles–based villains on film and TV always seem to live in really nice, modernist houses (often designed by John Lautner), the buildings’ glass surfaces and complex concrete contours reflecting the villains’ motives, madness, and megalomania. (Though sometimes a beautiful house is just a beautiful house.) We’ve compiled a list of great modernist houses in which villains have taken up residence, and asked New York Magazine design expert Wendy Goodman to rank them. Ahead, a worst-to-best assessment of L.A.’s more villainous homes. 8. Brent Saville, Astral House, 1995 (The Limey). “If you can afford a house like this, you buy a house like this,” says Luiz Guzmán’s small-time crook who cannot afford a house like this.

Terence Stamp: ‘I was in my prime, but when the 60s ended, I ended with it’

12 March 2015 11:36 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

He was the star of some of the decade’s most memorable films – and dated some of its most beautiful women. With the reissue of 1967’s Far From the Madding Crowd, the actor talks about his friendship with Michael Caine and his topsy-turvy career

Terence Stamp sticks his head round the door and opens his mouth. How will this legend of British acting introduce himself? What pearl of wisdom will he divulge? Stamp, self-confessed “decadent” and former holder of the title of world’s best-looking man (1963-1969) speaks: “Gotta take a slash, man. Where’s the gents?” Having been pointed in the right direction, Stamp returns, visibly relieved.

It’s funny how things work out. Now 76, Stamp had a fantastic 1960s, during which he starred in a handful of imperishable classics (Billy Budd, Ken Loach’s Poor Cow, Pasolini’s Theorem) and consorted with some of the era’s most beautiful women (Julie Christie, »

Editors Guild Selects 75 Best Edited Films of All Time

4 February 2015 8:26 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Now this is a list that could result in a lot of fascinating dissection and thanks to HitFix it comes to our attention almost three years after it was originally released back in 2012, celebrating the Motion Picture Editors Guild's 75th anniversary. Over at HitFix, Kris Tapley asks, "Is this news to anyone elsec" Um, yes, I find it immensely interesting and a perfect starting point for anyone looking to further explore the art of film editing. In an accompanying article we get the particulars concerning what films were eligible and how films were to be considered: In our Jan-feb 12 issue, we asked Guild members to vote on what they consider to be the Best Edited Films of all time. Any feature-length film from any country in the world was eligible. And by "Best Edited," we explained, we didn't just mean picture; sound, music and mixing were to be considered as well. »

What is the best-edited film of all time according to those who do the job?

3 February 2015 8:43 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A random bit of researching on a Tuesday night led me to something I didn't know existed: The Motion Picture Editors Guild's list of the 75 best-edited films of all time. It was a feature in part celebrating the Guild's 75th anniversary in 2012. Is this news to anyone else? I confess to having missed it entirely. Naturally, I had to dig in. What was immediately striking to me about the list — which was decided upon by the Guild membership and, per instruction, was considered in terms of picture and sound editorial as opposed to just the former — was the most popular decade ranking. Naturally, the 1970s led with 17 mentions, but right on its heels was the 1990s. I wouldn't have expected that but I happen to agree with the assessment. Thelma Schoonmaker's work on "Raging Bull" came out on top, an objectively difficult choice to dispute, really. It was so transformative, »
