It’s one thing to mentally prepare to play a character in a movie or a play. It’s another thing to physically transform yourself in order to better identify with the role. Some transformations are only skin deep; extensive makeup or prosthetics may be sufficient to pull of the necessary look. Other transformations are more involved; many actors may take part in weeks, if not months, of preparations for a role. This can include intense training, specialized diets, and exhaustive exercise routines. The end result of an actor going through such a transformation is not only a more accurate visual resemblance,
Requiem For A Dream (2000)
Director: Darren Aronofsky
Screenplay: Hubert Selby Jr. and Darren Aronofsky based on the book by Hubert Selby Jr.
I saw a stat awhile ago, I don’t remember the exact numbers, but basically it said that most people are incorrect about what will make them happy. Happy. I suspect those are the same people that think happiness is a feeling that they need to achieve, or search for. The more I think about it, I believe more than anything, drug addicts have disillusioned themselves into believing such a feeling of happiness essentially exists. Happiness, pleasure, something along those lines, but whatever it is, the world
If you have any interest in movies at all, chances are you've heard of a little film called mother!
Darren Aronofsky, the director of Black Swan and Requiem for a Dream, is back with his most controversial film yet. mother! is hard to talk about without going into spoiler territory, but we can assure you that it is a singular vision from one of our best working directors. If all of the talk and controversy surrounding the film isn't enough for you to check it out, we have five reasons why you need to see mother!
Michelle Pfeiffer is back It has been four years since Michelle Pfeiffer appeared on the big screen, and even then her past few films were a series of flops. That's why seeing her return in mother! is all the more satisfying.
Other notable Blu-ray and DVD releases for December 19th include American Gothic, Leatherface, mother!, and the limited edition Steelbook for Donnie Darko.
American Gothic (Scream Factory, Blu-ray)
A new tale of terror from the director of The Legend of Hell House and The Incubus.
What can we expect from the film Dead Love?
Talking tables, cannibals, exploding hearts, an awesome soundtrack and many scenes of murder-sex (a term the actors coined on set). It’s essentially a love story concerning a man named Allan, a woman called Anne and a sentient piece of furniture! We’ve got all bases covered – if you want gore, we have scenes where some cast & crew had to watch through their hands. There’s a bit of comedy (hopefully) and underpinning that is the tale of two mismatched people finding love in an unlikely situation.

“In a very, I guess you could say ‘Jihadist’ way, I’m not afraid,” says Dark Wallet founder Amir Taaki in “The New Radical,” which explores the lives of various crypto-anarchists. Filmmaker Adam Bhala Lough focuses on the terrifyingly brilliant Cody Wilson,
This list is less about identifying the best looking films of the era – although many are here – and more about celebrating collaborations that have allowed many of the best filmmakers working today to fully express themselves on the big screen.
Dir: Paul Thomas Anderson, Dp: Robert Elswit
The first time Paul Thomas Anderson did not work with Elswitt – “The Master,” shot by Mihai Mălaimare Jr. – the results were (thankfully) great, but it’s fascinating that the director
Terror and fear are common traits in all movies, not just horror films. Frightening moments happen in everything from children’s films to blockbuster action flicks. The reason is that fear is an effective tool for filmmakers. First, it is easy to create. Dark picture quality, demonic makeup or special effects, even a simple jump scare can do the trick. As compared to genuine emotional connection to characters or a film’s themes, creating scares doesn’t tax the script too heavily. Furthermore, fear is a very effective way to connect with the audience. If they are scared, there is a vulnerability that the filmmakers can take advantage of to create a more emotional viewing experience.
Featured speakers added to the programming lineup including musician Keith Urban, Luvvie Ajayi, W. Kamau Bell, investor Steve Ballmer, Yiying Lu and Stefan Blom.
“A provocative and virtuoso filmmaker, we’re thrilled to host Darren Aronofsky as one of SXSW Film’s 2018 Keynotes,” said Janet Pierson, Director of Film. “He’s been an original since his first independent work, and we know it will be a blast for our passionate SXSW audiences to hear his story.”
Aronofsky’s latest film “Mother!” stars Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Ed Harris, and Michelle Pfeiffer. The film was not a strong box office performer with $39 million in worldwide grosses since its Sept. 15 debut. His 2010 film “Black Swan” grossed $340 million worldwide. His other films have included “The Wrestler,” “The Fountain,” “Requiem for a Dream,” and “Pi.”
Concluding our build up to Blade Runner 2049 with a series of essentials on the principal cast, we finish with Jared Leto. A musician/actor who seems to have been around for a while now, ageless and when perusing his CV you will find that he’s not done quite as many films as you’d think. Needless to say though, he doesn’t merely flit in every now and again between music just on a whim. Leto takes the acting craft incredibly seriously and has been known in a number of roles to be intensely method in his approach.
So, as I itch with bated breath to see Blade Runner 2049, here is (in no particular order) the essential Jared Leto.
Requiem for a Dream
Leto doesn’t often headline. He’s the antagonist, the support man and a chameleon-esque character actor.

Jared Leto never saw his performance as The Joker, but it isn't over sour grapes or anything of that nature. Leto just doesn't like to watch his own movies. The actor recently spoke to SyFy Wire to promote the upcoming Blade Runner 2049 and he revealed that he has
