Patrick Wachsberger talks franchises, highlights and Polanski

23 September 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: “We’re going through a sea change,” Lionsgate executive says of the film business today.

This Sunday, industry veteran and sales supremo Patrick Wachsberger, co-chairman, Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, will be honoured at the Zurich Film Festival with the event’s Game Changer Award, which is bestowed on an individual who has been able to “successfully navigate through the aggressively changing entertainment landscape.”

Wachsberger’s more than 30-year navigation of those choppy waters has seen him play a pivotal role in two billion-dollar franchises, multiple Oscar and Palme d’Or campaigns and two of the industry’s most successful independent film companies of recent decades.

However, the film business is more unpredictable than ever claims the former Summit boss, who spoke to Screen shortly before the surprise news that fellow Lionsgate co-chair Rob Friedman is to leave the company.

What the BBC's list of the top 100 films of the 21st century means about movies

23 August 2016 6:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When I was approached about contributing to the BBC’s list of the top hundred films of the 21st century, I was excited to participate precisely because I have such conflicting feelings about lists in general. Personal lists make sense to me. If I’m making a list of my ten favorite films of last year or my twenty favorite films of all time or the best movies of the 2000s or, if I ever felt really ambitious, my 1000 favorite films ever made, that makes sense because it’s a personal point of view. Ranking films side by side is, when you really look at it, a crazy endeavor. How can you compare two things as profoundly different in intent, execution, and voice as Enter The Void and The Incredibles or Mulholland Drive and Bridesmaids or whatever head-to-head you want to name, and honestly say that one is “better” than »

Mulholland Drive Tops BBC's 100 Best Movies of the 21st Century List

23 August 2016 12:21 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The modern movie landscape can make some people feel like the best days of film are behind us. With remakes, reboots and adaptations very abundant, and original movies seemingly not raking it in at the box office, that is an understandable sentiment. But the BBC felt like there are a lot of recent movies worth celebrating, and that is why they set out to make a list of the 100 greatest movies of the 21st century. The list they came up with is nothing if not interesting, and it is definitely a reminder that there are a lot of great movies that have been made in the last 16 years.

BBC published the list on Tuesday morning, after taking months to put it all together. In order to come up with this list, they used nearly 200 critics from both print and online publications, as well as academics and curators. The contributors that were used spanned the globe, »

The 100 Greatest Films of the 21st Century: BBC Polls Critics From Around The Globe

23 August 2016 8:44 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Last year, the BBC polled a bunch of critics to determine the 100 greatest American films of all time and only six films released after 2000 placed at all. This year, the BBC decided to determine the “new classics,” films from the past 16 years that will likely stand the test of time, so they polled critics from around the globe for their picks of the 100 greatest films of the 21st Century so far. David Lynch’s “Mulholland Dr.” tops the list, Wong Kar-Wai’s “In The Mood For Love” places second, and Paul Thomas Anderson and the Coen Brothers both have 2 films in the top 25. See the full results below.

Though the list itself is fascinating, what’s also compelling are the statistics about the actual list. According to the the BBC, they polled 177 film critics from every continent except Antarctica. »

Mullholland Drive tops critics' list of best 21st century films

23 August 2016 2:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Aug 23, 2016

A critics' survey puts Mullholland Drive at the top of the list of the best films since 2000. Did yours make the cut?

Movie critics love Linklater, Studio Ghibli, the Coens and the surrealist stylings of David Lynch. At least, that's if a newly-published list of the 100 greatest films of the 21st century is anything to go by.

BBC Culture commissioned the poll, which took in responses from 177 film critics from all over the world. As a result, the top 100 includes an eclectic mix of the mainstream to independent movies, from dramas to sci-fi and off-beat comedies. Feew would be surprised to see things like Paolo Sorrentino's handsome Italian confection The Great Beauty propping up the lower end of the list, or that such acclaimed directors as Wes Anderson or the aforementioned Coens feature heavily. 

What is pleasing to see, though, is how much good genre stuff has made the cut, »

The 21st Century’s 100 Greatest Films, According to Critics

22 August 2016 6:23 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Although we’re only about 16% into the 21st century thus far, the thousands of films that have been released have provided a worthy selection to reflect on the cinematic offerings as they stand. We’ve chimed in with our favorite animations, comedies, sci-fi films, and have more to come, and now a new critics’ poll that we’ve taken part in has tallied up the 21st century’s 100 greatest films overall.

The BBC has polled 177 critics from around the world, resulting in a variety of selections, led by David Lynch‘s Mulholland Drive. Also in the top 10 was Wong Kar-wai‘s In the Mood For Love and Terrence Malick‘s The Tree of Life, which made my personal ballot (seen at the bottom of the page).

In terms of the years with the most selections, 2012 and 2013 each had 9, while Wes Anderson, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Christopher Nolan, the Coens, Michael Haneke, and »

Why Music In Films Matters

14 August 2016 6:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Neil Calloway argues that soundtracks and scores can make or break films…

This week, Flickering Myth’s own Oli Davis made the persuasive case that Suicide Squad‘s various cuts could be seen in the music they used; with David Ayer’s original version using different styles of music to the final cut by Trailer Park. There was also the release of a report titled “The Effect of Background Music in Shark Documentaries on Viewers’ Perceptions of Sharks” that suggested people are afraid of sharks because of the ominous music used to score film scenes where they are present.  Personally, I’m frightened of sharks because I don’t want one to bite my leg off, leaving me to die an agonising death in the water while wearing only swimming shorts.

What both these stories remind us is the huge part scores and soundtracks play in films; when you get »

Jared Leto Speaks on Gay and Minority Actors

4 August 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Jared Leto loves pushing boundaries on and off set when it comes to the roles he takes (as evidenced most recently by his time as the Joker in the upcoming “Suicide Squad,” where he sent co-star Margot Robbie a live rat). While this upcoming performance remains to be seen, the Oscar winner and Method actor wowed audiences and the Academy alike when he played a transgender woman named Rayon battling AIDS in “Dallas Buyers Club.” But he was turning in impressive and surprising work in “Requiem for a Dream,” “Mr. Nobody,” and “American Psycho” before then. However, if Leto were a gay actor, he’s not sure he would’ve had the same opportunities, he recently told GQ Style magazine. Read: “Are You a Method or Classical Actor?” “I definitely don’t think a gay leading man would have the same opportunities as a straight leading man. I don’t think that. »

Natasha Lyonne Has a Pregnancy-Inducing Bad Trip in First Trailer For ‘Antibirth’

4 August 2016 9:29 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

You may have had some rough nights of partying a little too hard, but they surely don’t compare to what Natasha Lyonne goes through in her latest film. Premiering as part of the Midnight section at Sundance Film Festival this past year, Danny Perez‘s Antibirth finds the actress experiencing immaculate conception that turns quite evil. Ahead of a release next month from IFC Midnight, the first trailer has now arrived.

We said in our review, “With a background in music videos and shorts, director Danny Perez strings together a few sequences that seem to work. The opening moments are punk rock trashy as is the film’s over-the-top sequences. Style creeps in over substance in the more surreal moments which, despite the presence of Lyonne and Sevigny, extend their reach. Mysterious figures follow Lou as she goes about her business, either imagined or perhaps real people lurking in »

Jared Leto: The Unlikely Triumphs of a Rock-Star Movie Star

27 July 2016 6:30 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Jared Leto is wearing a preposterous straw hat this morning, a gigantic, not-quite-a-sombrero thing he bought for seven bucks at a corner store. And why not? He's made it this far by committing fully, sometimes crazily, to everything in his life: Method acting, music-making, video directing, tech investing, not to mention the arts of being enigmatic, brainy and really, really good-looking. "I don't dabble," he says. "I dive in, 1,000 percent." So if he needs sun protection for a hike, of course he goes big. In any case, Leto recently turned 44 — "old, »
