Owen Wilson interview: Wonder, art in movies

Ben Mortimer Nov 30, 2017

Owen Wilson chats to us about Wonder, art, writing and more...

Wonder. It started life as an extraordinary book from R J Palacio, and it's now been turned into a hugely impressive film as well. Already a hit in the Us, the movie stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson. And on the UK press tour for the movie, Wilson spared us some time to talk about the film...

[As I enter, I notice that Wilson is reading a book about Van Gogh. I make a comment about this just as I’m setting my Dictaphone to record]

Yeah, I just picked it up off the nightstand. But I’ve been there, to the museum in Amsterdam. Do you have a favourite Van Gogh painting?

Not particularly, Van Gogh. I’m more of a Dali fan.

Very trippy.

Have you been to any of the galleries in London while you’ve been here?

I went to go see the Basquiat show, over at the Barbican.

There was a good documentary on Basquiat recently.

My friend, [art dealer] Tony Shafrazi,

Best 25 Horror Oscar Winners, Ranked

Best 25 Horror Oscar Winners, Ranked
Most people think that snobby Oscar voters through the decades have turned their backs on the horror genre. Not so. True, far more horror flicks have been nominated for Oscars — including many Alfred Hitchcock movies — than have won. Hitch was nominated six times for Best Director and never took home a gold statue, which is why he was awarded an Honorary Oscar in 1968. “Thank you,” he said, and walked offstage.

We scoured the record books to find 25 Oscar-winning horror movies, and herewith rank them for you.

After heated arguments among the IndieWire staff, we threw out a dozen or so monster movies (“King Kong,” “Mighty Joe Young,” “Jurassic Park”), ghost films (“Ghost”) and scary psychological thrillers like Hitchcock’s “Spellbound” that just didn’t feel like horror flicks to us.

Defining a horror movie is subjective. Is it about gore and guts and supernatural beings, or how it makes you feel?

Forbidden Tomes: 7 Autumnal Books to Read on Halloween

Horror fans don’t need a time-sensitive excuse to indulge in uncanny and unnatural literature, but there’s nothing quite like steeping oneself in a novel of the strange as the October winds blow, bringing half-imagined whispers of phantoms from the pages. Some books evoke this sense more effortlessly—and frighteningly—than others. Here are seven chilly, liminal examples of literature’s power to bring us across the veil.

Books of Blood by Clive Barker: While technically five volumes, Clive Barker’s masterwork of short horror fiction brings the perfect mixture of pulpy violence, grotesque monstrosities, and transcendentally disturbing themes. His tales take the reader through gritty urban wastelands, liminal spaces of decay or transgression, where the rejected pieces of society manage to make a life—and encounter monsters in the process. Particularly poisonous treats include the titular story, a nightmarish diatribe on the roadways of ghosts; “Rawhead Rex,

The 15 Best Horror Directors of the 21st Century

The 15 Best Horror Directors of the 21st Century
“It” may be a box office smash, but it’s hardly the only horror movie worth talking about these days. Just 17 years in, and the 21st century has already played home to a remarkable number of truly chilling and inventive horror offerings, from a resurgence in J-horror remakes to a continued affection for the classic series of yesteryear, to the massive dominance of the “Conjuring” movie universe and even a “Saw” franchise so dominant that it’s already cycled back into resurrection territory, and that’s just the mainstream stuff.

Aided by a new crop of filmmakers beholden to both their own obsessions and formative years steeped in the classics, the past two decades are shaping up to be some of the very best for the genre, with still more terror being turned out at a frightening clip. From visionaries like Guillermo del Toro and Gore Verbinksi, who can happily

Mike Flanagan and Trevor Macy interview: Gerald's Game

Brendon Connelly Sep 28, 2017

The producer and director of Gerald's Game chat to us about bringing Stephen King's work to the screen...

Mike Flanagan isn't the big brand name that Stephen King is – not yet, anyway - but I'll admit it, had it been announced that somebody else was adapting King's novel Gerald's Game, my excitement would have been severely tempered.

But Flanagan did get the gig, and so I've been waiting impatiently for his film for months now. Happily, I was not even the slightest bit disappointed. Flanagan's adaptation is, while being very true to King's original, a brilliantly original, cinematic, effective and powerful work.

Last week, I spoke to Flanagan and Trevor Macy, the film's producer, about how they pulled off such a tricky adaptation, as well as Flanagan's next gig adapting Shirley Jackson's classic The Haunting Of Hill House into a “ten hour movie”. Here's how the conversation went.

Film Review: ‘Leatherface’

Film Review: ‘Leatherface’
Considering the game-changing stature of Tobe Hooper’s 1974 original in the annals of horror cinema, it’s odd that “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” has had such a peculiar, erratic life in franchise terms. Odder still then that after so many re-inventions of this particular wheel, to varying artistic and box-office rewards, that “Leatherface” should quietly premiere on DirecTV a month before being dumped into a handful of U.S. theaters on Oct. 20.

Written by Seth M. Sherwood and directed by the French duo Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo (“Inside”), this “origin story” is a somewhat mixed bag. But it’s also an earnest and well-crafted attempt at course-correction, straying from stock slasher recyclage to provide a different story that actually connects a few dots in the very tangled cinematic “Chainsaw” universe to date. Particularly given the angry popular rejection just handed genre rule-breaker “Mother!,” you’d think this respectable addition to an uneven but name-brand horror pic
