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. »

23 August 2016 8:02 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The series stars Wagner Moura (Elite SquadElysium) as Pablo Escobar alongside Boyd Holbrook (Gone Girl) and Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones) as real-life DEA agents Steve Murphy and Javier Peña.

José Padilha (Elite SquadRoboCop) and Eric Newman (Children of Men) serve as executive producers of the series. Narcos is produced by Gaumont International Television for Netflix. »

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 »

‘Arrival’ Teaser Trailer: What Other Studios Can Learn From the Brief, Spoiler-Free Clip

10 August 2016 9:09 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Remember the “Dark Knight Rises” teaser? Sure you do — it was better than the movie itself. At barely 90 seconds long, it offered little in the way of actual footage from the film but made every frame count: Commissioner Gordon beseeching Batman to return to Gotham; the briefest glimpse of Bane; those ominous chants rumbling from the background that apparently translate to “rise.” It was a model for all other such ads, and one that yesterday’s look at Denis Villeneuve’s “Arrival” brings to mind.

Set to premiere at the Venice Film Festival early next month, the “Sicario” director’s latest is about an extraterrestrial species that visits earth for reasons unknown. Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner and Forest Whitaker have to make their way into the aliens’ spacecraft and…well, it’s difficult to say after that, because the minute-long teaser doesn’t actually tell us — which is as it should be. »

Post-Apocalyptic ‘Embers’ Doesn’t Quite Catch Fire [Review]

29 July 2016 10:22 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Montreal — To make a post-apocalyptic film that deeply resonates, you must truly have a vision that is not only interesting, but is authentic enough to give the audience the nagging feel that the premise could feasibly happen in our society one day. It worked wonders in Alfonso Cuarón‘s now-classic “Children Of Men,” but it faltered […]

Charlie Hunnam Not Returning to ‘Pacific Rim’ Sequel, Because of ‘Politics’ vs. ‘Art’

26 July 2016 1:36 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 film “Pacific Rim” follows washed-up soldier Raleigh Becket, played by Charlie Hunnam, who is pulled out of retirement to team up with a young rookie for one last-ditch attempt to defeat the Kaiju, colossal alien monsters from an interdimensional realm that are at war with Earth. Though a sequel to the commercially and critically successful monster film is in the works, Hunnam will not be returning to the series. In an interview with Yahoo at Comic-Con, Hunnam explained that he was involved in a very early version of the sequel, but couldn’t swing it because of a scheduling conflict and cited the “non-creative” decisions that allow certain choices to be made.

“They have a very definite schedule that they have to film because of the, you know, politics and business surrounding filmmaking,” says Hunnam. »

‘Narcos’ Season 2 Trailer: Pablo Escobar Escapes From Prison To Reign Again

21 July 2016 7:16 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Netflix series “Narcos” chronicles the life of Colombian drug kingpin Pablo Escobar (played by Wagner Moura) and the two DEA agents desperate to hunt him down. As Escobar takes control of Colombia, cocaine from the country starts to take over America, and drug-related violence follows not far behind. The DEA sends Steve Murphy (Boyd Holbrook), Javier Peña (Pedro Pascal), and a whole task force to work with Colombian authorities to put an end to the drug trade. But as they arrive in the country, Escobar has problems of his own with rival gangs, business associates, and political violence that brings unwanted attention to his gang. At the start of the second season, Escobar escapes from prison untouched and has taken over the reigns of the drug business once again while the authorities are planning a full invasion to bring him down. Watch the trailer for the new season below. »

What Movie Gives You Hope For The Future? — Critics Survey

11 July 2016 9:40 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, the CriticWire Survey asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday morning. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What movie gives you hope for the future?

Miriam Bale (@mimbale), Freelance

No movie gives me hope for the future right now. What a question! Is that what movies are supposed to do?

But this is the most important piece of film criticism I’ve read this year, and the writing gives me some kind of hope for intellectual direction in what may be revolutionary times.

14 Films to Watch After Seeing Nicolas Winding Refn’s ‘The Neon Demon’

30 June 2016 11:11 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It’s a common image in cinema: a beautiful, but vulnerable woman entering a cold and unforgiving world, where good bone-structure and talent become dangerously interchangeable. While navigating the leering male gaze and sometimes heartless competition of female peers, she also must do battle with her own insecurities and self-doubts, all of which can be seemingly cured with the miraculous kiss of success. But for some, that success can lead directly to their downfall. Sometimes, the consequences can even be lethal, the adversary too ruthless to be conquered, and the beauty is left to rust in tragic defeat. And sometimes, it’s more painfully simple. They merely want to cut the poor girl’s throat.

The Neon Demon, the spellbinding new film from director Nicolas Winding Refn, is now playing in theaters nationwide. The plot follows Jesse (Elle Fanning) a 16-year-old girl who arrives in Hollywood with dreams of becoming a successful model. »

NYC Weekend Watch: Jean Cocteau, James M. Cain, ‘Mad Max’ & More

26 May 2016 7:01 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since any New York cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

Anthology Film Archive

Make it a Jean Cocteau weekend: The Blood of a Poet and Orpheus screen on Friday, the former also showing on Saturday and the latter on Sunday. Beauty and the Beast also shows on those days.

Jungle Book: Origins Targeting “Slightly Older Audience” As Andy Serkis Teases Darker Story

17 May 2016 8:11 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Andy Serkis’ postponed Jungle Book: Origins will offer up a “darker, scarier” version of Rudyard Kipling’s classic adventure tale.

That’s according to the writer-director-actor himself, who revealed the tonal differences with Disney and Jon Favreau’s The Jungle Book in an interview with Vulture. There, Serkis likened Origins‘ target audience to that of Fox’s lucrative Apes franchise, bringing it closer to the tone found in Kipling’s original story.

As such, it seems safe to assume the 2018 release will be aligning itself with a PG-13 rating, and here the performance maestro touched base on how it’ll differ from this year’s The Jungle Book.

“Ours is for a slightly older audience,” Serkis said. “It’s a PG-13, more a kind of ‘Apes’ movie, a slightly darker take, closer to Rudyard Kipling’s. It’s great to scare kids in a safe environment because it’s an important part of development, »

Marc Abraham's career has known box office success as well as critical lionising, with films such as Children of Men and Spy Game standing out for attention on a resume which covers over twenty years in the business. Having made the transition from producer to director with 2008's Flash of Genius, his latest film I Saw The Light is a study of country legend Hank Williams. He spoke with CineVue's Tom Duggins, making his infectious passion for William's writing apparent from the get-go in an interview that focused on the folklore of country and the difficulty of representing pop stars on screen.
