An American Film Geek's Best of the Decade, 2000-2009

31 December 2009 10:29 AM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Sheesh, another list! At the end of every year, the need to do an annual best-of movie round-up seems to sneak up on me. The fact that it's now the end of the decade snuck on me all the more. In compiling this admittedly quick list, I looked over all my qualifying year-end lists, and re-evaluated where necessary. I tried to consider the films I saw in the greater sociological context of the decade itself - their effects on it, and what they have to say about it. At the same time, I also tried to include some personal selections that probably wouldn't make other such lists, but were important to me. Please keep in mind that i could not see everything, and that my beat around here is the mainstream theatrical films. I managed to narrow it down to twenty films, ranking the first ten. So here it, my best of the decade, »

The 25 Best American Independent Films Of The Decade

31 December 2009 10:14 AM, PST | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Concluding a decade in which specialty film distribution boomed and busted, and in which the identity and composition of filmed entertainment itself was challenged, perhaps it's not surprising that David Lynch’s Mulholland Drive, the ultimate unstable cinematic text, wound up on top of Filmmaker Magazine’s Editor’s Poll of the Best American Independent Films of the ’00s. Begun as television pilot but finally assembled as a feature according to the unconscious urgings of its creator, Mulholland Drive is a dyspeptic musing on the cinematic dream machine, one that launched an actual movie star (Naomi Watts) while also serving notice that the edifice of Hollywood fantasy was in deep disrepair. I was a little surprised that Mulholland Drive »

Best films of the noughties No 3: Mulholland Drive | Xan Brooks

30 December 2009 1:40 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Is David Lynch's 2001 spellbinder an exposé of Hollywood mores? Or is it a wild white rabbit chase into the mind of Lynch himself? Who knows, and what does it matter when the result is this entrancing

Mulholland Drive, like its namesake, twists and turns along the fringes of Hollywood, past misty vistas and discreet, gated secrets. The way ahead is slippery and treacherous, and halfway up even the most surefooted traveller risks losing their way. When the film was released back in 2001, director David Lynch helpfully provided a list of directions ("Notice appearance of the red lampshade. Where is Aunt Ruth?", etc). But were these road signs or red herrings? There are times when we wonder if even Lynch knows precisely where he is leading us.

I interviewed the director at the tail-end of 1999 when he told me about this TV pilot he'd been working on; how the network »

Discussing a Decade: Critics Comment On The 2000s

28 December 2009 8:25 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Last week, indieWIRE published its annual critics poll, with a special question geared toward the best of the decade.  Ninety-nine participants decided that David Lynch’s “Mulholland Drive” lead some 200 films that received votes in the category, with Wong Kar-wai’s “In The Mood For Love,” Edward Yang’s “Yi Yi” and Paul Thomas Anderson’s “There Will Be Blood” just behind.  Many of the critics also included their written thoughts on the decade … »

What I Watched, What You Watched: Installment #23

27 December 2009 2:32 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Well, the lack of screenings last week allowed me to take in a lot more films at home, on top of being able to show my family some they had yet to see over the holiday weekend. So, without further delay let's dig in as I have nine films to talk about this week and I have spread them out over two pages.

Julia (2009) Quick Thoughts: There have been a few folks around the Internet cheering for Tilda Swinton's performance in Julia as the best lead female performance of 2009. After finally seeing the film I am willing to concede it is definitely a good performance, but I can't quite understand where the over-the-top adulation from some corners is all about. The film itself is also quite entertaining, especially considering it is too long. However, I realize now the best way to fill your film with Tons of cliches is »

Discuss: Can 'The Hurt Locker' Win Best Picture?

25 December 2009 6:03 PM, PST | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

When it was announced earlier this year that the Academy would expand the Best Picture category to ten nominees, my first thought was that the year's best film, The Hurt Locker, actually has a chance to get nominated. Now it has been winning critics' awards and turning up on nearly every top ten list, very often at #1. It seems to be the movie of choice for both highbrow and mainstream film critics, which is part of its charm. Lately I started thinking that even if the category were only five, The Hurt Locker might have a chance to get a nomination, and now it seems like it might even have a chance to win.

But then I think back to 2001. At the end of the year, David Lynch's Mulholland Drive was the clear critics' favorite, just as The Hurt Locker is this year. And, indeed, Mulholland Drive has gone »

IndieWIRE Critics: Summer Hours Best of 2009, Mulholland Dr. Best of Decade

22 December 2009 9:37 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Olivier Assayas' The Summer Hours beat The Hurt Locker and A Serious Man by a nose as the Best Picture of the Year, and a film that took me a couple of tries to acknowledge it as genius in David Lynch's Mulholland Drive was claimed tops of the 00's over my favorite of the decade, Wkw's In the Mood for Love. - I'm a huge fan of lists, especially those that include year end picks from film critic peers that I admire and respect. If there was an French version of IndieWIRE I'm sure their group of critics would be voting the same way as Olivier Assayas' The Summer Hours beat The Hurt Locker and A Serious Man by a nose as the Best Picture of the Year, and a film that took me a couple of tries to acknowledge it as genius in David Lynch »

Summer Hours Best Film of 2009 – indieWIRE Poll

22 December 2009 12:47 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Juliette Binoche in Summer Hours ( Jeannick Gravelines / IFC Films) Olivier Assayas’ family drama Summer Hours has been named the best film of 2009 in indieWIRE’s annual poll of 114 film critics and bloggers, Eugene Hernandez reports. Also, David Lynch’s Mulholland Dr. was chosen the best film of the decade. Starring Juliette Binoche, Charles Berling, and Jérémie Renier, Summer Hours tells the story of three siblings fighting for the possessions left behind by their deceased mother (Edith Scob) at the family’s summer house. Earlier this month, Summer Hours was voted the best foreign language film of 2009 by the Los Angeles, New York, and Boston film critics. Following in second place in indieWIRE’s poll was Joel and Ethan Coen’s A Serious [...] »

The 10 most underrated movies of the decade

22 December 2009 2:24 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

As the noughties tick down, let's shine a belated spotlight on the films that never got their due at release in the past 10 years

With the mood of reflection common to all year-ends magnified by this being the close of a decade, the list-loving world of film is awash with rundowns of the finest moments of not just 2009 but the entire noughties. In this very spot, you'll have already seen the Guardian's crack team reveal the first 90 titles of their golden hundred, with the final 10 being unveiled over the days ahead. But in the spirit of fair play, I thought it might also be worth drafting a top 10 of a slightly different nature – not the decade's best per se, but it's most underrated.

In short, what with this being the season of goodwill and so on, it might be apt to briefly pick out in the spotlight those films that »

Weitzman's Million Dollar Shoe On Ice For 2010 Oscars

21 December 2009 10:56 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Top designer Stuart Weitzman has decided to give his famous Million Dollar Shoe the boot at the Oscars for the second year running - thanks to the continued global economic downturn.

Each year, Weitzman personally sizes and crafts a special jewelled shoe for one lucky up-and-coming lady to wear to the Academy Awards.

But the tradition was halted for 2009 due to the recession and Weitzman has chosen to keep the diamonds on ice for the 2010 ceremony too.

He tells the New York Post's gossip column PageSix, "There will be no Million Dollar Shoe for the Oscars this year. With so many people struggling financially, and unemployment at 10 per cent, I don't think it is appropriate. The actresses still want to go for glamour, but this year it will be more understated."

The lucky ladies who have worn Weitzman's Million Dollar Shoe to past Oscars have included Ray star Regina King, Dreamgirls actress Anika Noni Rose and Mulholland Drive's Laura Harring.

Among those who have worn his shoes to other red carpet events are Angelina Jolie, Katie Holmes, and Kate Winslet. »

Trailer (Revised) – Drool (Jill Marie Jones Loves Women)

19 December 2009 12:48 PM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

I previously profiled this film in October to mixed responses.

Well… this morning, I received the below revised trailer for the film which was recut and includes some new footage. It’s slightly better than the first trailer, and I think I have a better feel for the tone of the film than I did the first time around.

The poster to the left is also new. I didn’t have one previously.

Not-so sure I can say I’d be in a hurry to see it. But, with Jill Marie Jones prominently present in it, I just might give it a go. I haven’t seen her anything else since her days on Girlfriends.

So this’ll be a chance to see her in something seemingly unlike anything she’s done previously.

Anora Fleece (Laura Harring who you’d remember from David Lynch’s Mulholland Drive) has got it rotten. »

Foolish Golden Globe Predictions

13 December 2009 11:08 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Best Picture Drama

The Hurt Locker

Inglourious BasterdsThe Last Station

PreciousUp in the Air

The Globes sometimes throw in really interesting critical darlings that don't have much of a shot at Oscar (like Mulholland Drive or Eastern Promises) and sometimes they latch on to brand new movies that nobody cares about the next day (The Great Debaters) so, really, who the hell knows?!? Which is why I'm just tossing up my hands and predicting The Last Station. But honestly it feels like there's about 12 pictures that might be nominated. You could even see The Road surprising (they have a documented thing for Viggo) The reason I'm ignoring Avatar is that it just barely started screening. I don't know when the Hfpa starting voting but the Bfca ballots, for example, were due on Saturday, roughly 36 hours after the first Avatar screenings... at least here in NYC. And based on when the »

'Return of the Jedi,' Directed by David Lynch?

12 December 2009 8:02 AM, PST | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Even the thought of directing Wookies gave him a migraine headache. Still, out of respect, David Lynch met with George Lucas in the early 1980s to talk about directing the second sequel to his landmark blockbuster, eventually titled Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. Lynch recalls Lucas telling him about Wookies and "a lot of other animals," having lunch at a restaurant where only salad was served -- "not that I have anything against salad" -- and developing a migraine headache so severe that he snuck off to call his agent and beg not to make the movie. Lynch's conversation at the Hudson Union Society was captured by Fora.tv and is embedded after the jump.

In hindsight, knowing that Lynch would go on to make Blue Velvet, Wild at Heart, Lost Highway, and Mulholland Dr., it sounds like an insane idea, as in "What Was George Smoking? »

Monster Movies

11 December 2009 4:07 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Glenn here from Stale Popcorn here to discuss one of my favourite films from 2003, Patty Jenkins' Monster. Earlier this year when Courtney Hunt's Frozen River was released here in Australia I wrote in my review that It's a shame that Courtney Hunt's Frozen River is so good. It's unfortunate because now I will most likely be incredibly disappointed when this debut director falls between the cracks of the lead performance she helped create. I then went on to cite Boys Don't Cry's Kimberley Pierce (9 years between films) and Monster as examples.

Patty Jenkins has yet to make a second film after her Monster debut and there has never even been any word on her wanting to make another film. That is such a shame since she brought such fascinating sense of place to the Aileen Wuornos film and her twists on the idea of "American Gothic »

Fashion Dilemma

What will David Lynch's Dior advert look like?

Picture the scene: A woman sits in a darkened room, her pale face illuminated by the light of a streetlamp shining through the slats of a venetian blind. She is strikingly beautiful. She is crying, but she's still beautiful - not red-faced and swollen-eyed like normal people. This is because she is Lady Dior.

Lady Dior has a small blue Perspex box in front of her. She reaches out her slender and well-manicured fingers to touch the box. Kazzzam!!!

Lady Dior awakes on a beach in Miami. The camera pans out, accompanied only by the sounds of the waves crashing against the shore. We see in the distance that Lady Dior is »

David Lynch's Funny Tale of Meeting George Lucas and Rejecting Return of the Jedi

10 December 2009 3:15 AM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Fora.tv recently posted an interview with David Lynch at the Hudson Union Society. The 63-year-old creator of Blue Velvet, Mulholland Drive, and Twin Peaks took time to talk a little about his experience meeting George Lucas, who offered him the chance to direct Return of the Jedi.

Lynch amused the audience by saying he had "next-door to zero interest" in the project, but he thought he should at least meet with Lucas. He then described the elaborate process of simply getting to Lucas.

It was incredible. I had to go to this building in La first and get a special credit card, and I had to get special keys; a letter came, and a map.

Finally, after taking a flight and driving a rental car to some building, he met with Lucas in an office.

Now, right about in this time, I started getting a little bit of a headache. »
