New to Streaming: ‘Donnie Darko,’ ‘Antichrist,’ ‘The Prestige,’ and More

21 April 2017 4:23 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Antichrist (Lars von Trier)

Like the majority of Lars von Trier films, from the first moments of Antichrist, one will be able to discern if it’s an experience they want to proceed with. For those will to endure its specific unpleasantness, there’s a poetic, affecting exploration of despair at its center. Chaos reigns, indeed. – Jordan R.

Mulholland Dr. And The Joy Of A Complicated Yarn

13 April 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Dave Roper

Mulholland Dr. is getting a well-deserved re-release and that brings with it an opportunity to reflect again on its particular charms, including its complex, elliptical structure.

Mulholland may well be David Lynch’s masterpiece, though plenty will argue the same for Blue Velvet, Lost Highway, Eraserhead, The Elephant Man or Inland Empire. The Elephant Man is definitely the most conventional and therefore the most readily accessible of his films, but there remains a particular satisfaction in getting to grips with Mulholland’s structure and thereby arguably getting more out of it than something with a more traditional through-line.

For the uninitiated (for shame!), Mulholland Dr. is about (as much as it is really about anything) a wide-eyed young actress arriving in Hollywood, meeting an amnesiac car-crash victim and getting caught up in a reality-bending story of film-making, brokenness, mutating identities and a strange blue box.

Martin Scorsese’s Short Film “The Big Shave” from 1967

10 April 2017 3:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Only a few hours ago I brought you a student film that Christopher Nolan did called Doodlebug.     This film was shot in 1997 when Nolan was just an aspiring director.  It worth noting that he directed Memento only 3 years later.   While Doodlebug seems almost completely random, is it?  Directors develop their style very early and it’s fun to watch their early works.  Speaking of early works, 30 years prior to Nolan’s Doodlebug, another aspiring director was working on his short film. Before he made it into the mainstream with his movie Mean Street, Martin Scorsese made a film called

Exclusive: Director Richard Kelly and Jake Gyllenhaal on Why ‘Donnie Darko’ Still Resonates Today

6 April 2017 8:50 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

On Oct. 26, 2001, Donnie Darko, director Richard Kelly’s sci-fi film about a despondent teenager (Jake Gyllenhaal in his second major film role) who befriends a giant bunny named Frank (James Duval), was released in theaters. The film told a cryptic narrative of a high schooler who is sent on an existential journey after he escapes death from a falling jet engine and learns that the world has just over 28 days before it ends. In that time, Donnie fends off the torments of being a teen -- a testy older sister (Gyllenhaal’s real-life older sister, Maggie), concerned parents (Mary McDonnell and Holmes Osborne), overbearing teachers (Beth Grant), mild flirtations with a new female student (Jena Malone) -- while trying to figure out, in some ways, how to save the world.

“That was a movie that was more about the psychological journey of adolescence and the confusion of it all,” Gyllenhaal tells Et. And while it »

Sound Design in the Films of Christopher Nolan

3 April 2017 11:02 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

What you hear is just as important as what you see, sometimes more so.

When it comes to the films of Christopher Nolan, you can’t just watch them closely and expect to absorb all they have to offer. His work is a full-sensory experience, his films are the kind you feel and experience, not just observe, and that’s because Nolan has put just as much thought into what you hear as what you see, and I’m not talking about dialogue or score.

What I’m talking about is sound design, that art of finding, arranging, manipulating, and creating noises for narrative purpose; it’s also referred to as sound editing. In Nolan’s particular case, he has worked with the same supervising sound editor, Richard King, on each of his films since The Prestige, including the upcoming Dunkirk. For his efforts with the director King has twice been awarded an Oscar for Best Sound »

Do you need to see a film twice for it to work?

20 March 2017 1:27 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Mar 21, 2017

How many of us revisit a film, if it didn't work for us first time around?

A bit of clickbait avoidance. The answer to the question posed in the title is: it clearly depends on the film. But I think there’s a bit more to it than that. Hence this article.

Let’s start, then, with Stephen Fry. In his relatively recent memoir More Fool Me, he spends a welcome chunk of the opening section discussing books, and how memories of books can leak over time. He ties it into Guy Pearce’s character in Memento, thus earning a few extra geek points from the jar.

But there’s a sentence he writes, on page 15, that struck me at the time, and has struck me regularly since. For he simply recalls that “A friend of mine pointed out recently how absurd it was that people reread »

Christopher Nolan's WWII Epic Dunkirk Gets Rated PG-13

15 March 2017 4:20 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There are only a handful of directors out there whose name on a movie is more meaningful than the stars attached, and Christopher Nolan is certainly one of those filmmakers. After succeeding on the indie level with Memento and reinventing the superhero genre with his Dark Knight trilogy, Christopher Nolan's films have become highly-anticipated events, and his latest, the WWII-era thriller Dunkirk is no exception. Earlier today, the MPAA issued a PG-13 rating for Dunkirk, which has taken some fans by surprise.

Erc Box Office reports that the MPAA handed down the rating today for, "intense war experience and some language." The site even joked that, if the age-old axiom "War is hell" is true, than Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk may only be, "mildly hellish." Then again, there has never been any indication that Christopher Nolan was shooting for an R-rating while production was under way last year, and »

The Dunkirk Prologue Before Kong: Skull Island Shows Off Nolan At His Best

10 March 2017 12:57 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Director Christopher Nolan (MementoThe Dark KnightInception) has been slowly teasing an extended 5-minute prologue for his next movie, Dunkirk, a World War II film that depicts Operation Dynamo, a risky mission that set out to save hundreds of British soldiers entrapped by the German army.

The footage was previously attached to select IMAX showings of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story this past December, and now, Warner Bros. has placed it before IMAX screenings of Kong: Skull Island. The prologue is the same as it was in December, and it’s also spoiler-free, designed instead to convey the tone and sensibility of the film rather than specific plot details. In case you missed it, here’s a description of the footage and how I felt about it overall, as a Nolan fan trying to forget about the missteps I perceived in Interstellar.

‘Brimstone’ Review: Dakota Fanning and Guy Pearce Star In a Gnarly Revisionist Western That Trembles With Biblical Weight

8 March 2017 1:16 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Reverent and ridiculous in equal measure, Martin Koolhoven’s “Brimstone” is a wild pseudo-Western that trembles beneath the biblical weight of its comically grim story. Told with a steady tone that marries the anivine retribution of the Old Testament with the heightened slickness of a graphic novel, this gruesome carnival of debasement may be set in the lawless frontiers of 19th century America, but it might be more accurately located somewhere between Sodom and Gomorrah and “Sin City.” It’s the kind of movie in which an actor from “Game of Thrones” murders someone who’s taking a shit in an outhouse — the kind of movie in which a dying man, choking on a noose made out of his own intestines, still finds the spirit to tell his wife that he loves her.

Even after four discrete chapters (each of which is saddled with a subtitle like “Revelation” or “Exodus »

Brimstone: Guy Pearce On The Dark Western Thriller

7 March 2017 8:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Ever since his breakout role in L.A. Confidential twenty years ago, Australian actor Guy Pearce has been able to create prestige for himself with memorable roles in Christopher Nolan’s early film Memento and others. (For instance, he appeared in two recent Best Picture winners in The Hurt Locker and The King’s Speech). More importantly, he's been able to star in a series of fantastic genre films from The Proposition and Animal Kingdom to the Guillermo del Toro-produced Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark and Ridley Scott's Prometheus.     

Brimstone, from Dutch filmmaker Martin Koolhoven (Winter in Watime), puts Pearce back in familiar Western territory as The Proposition, playing a very different character, an ultra-pious Dutch preacher known only as “The Reverend” who spends the movie chasing after a young woman, played by Dakota Fanning. There’s a lot more to the story, which is told »

New to Streaming: ‘One More Time With Feeling,’ ‘Memento,’ ‘Frailty,’ and More

Catfight (Onur Tukel)

Who knew that one of the year’s most potent representations of America’s addiction to abrasive conflict would be Anne Heche and Sandra Oh beating each other to a pulp? Onur Tukel’s Catfight is an unabashedly silly and political film, but it’s also a funny one, with its two lead actresses literally and figuratively hurling themselves into their roles.

Nolan Explains Simple Yet Complicated Dunkirk Plot Structure

28 February 2017 3:33 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

This summer will bring its fair share of superheroes, sequels and remakes, as has been par for the course over the past few decades, but fans will also get a new Christopher Nolan movie with the filmmaker's highly-anticipated Dunkirk. Aside from a new poster for this WWII action-thriller in December and a trailer in August, we haven't seen much from this release slated to hit theaters nationwide on July 21. Today, we have some plot details from director Christopher Nolan, who teases that the story is both both more simple and much more complex than you might think.

When compared to the intricate plot lines of his films such as Memento, Inception and Interstellar, a WWII movie may seem fairly straight-forward for writer-director Christopher Nolan. Premiere caught up with Nolan, who explains that isn't exactly the case, teasing his simple story told in a very complex way. Here's what the filmmaker had to say. »

Ranking The Modern Batman Actors - Who Is The Best?

4 February 2017 12:21 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

This editorial must be started with a few things: First, I will not be including Lewis G Wilson, Robert Lowrey, or Adam West. They played Batman before many of us were born, it was a different time where campy jokes were abound, and I simply have never seen two of the three actors in action. Second, I am also not including the voice actors, and while Kevin Conroy is greatness, I can't list him here. Finally, I will try my best to not include the performance of the movie while judging the actor's work. At times this will be impossible, as seen in my pick for #5.

The problem for actors in portraying Batman is the fact that they also have to be Bruce Wayne as well. This can be problematic as the characters are almost a complete opposite from one another. Bruce Wayne is the mask of Batman, and it »

Mick Jackson interview: Denial, The Bodyguard, Donald Trump

Simon Brew Jan 27, 2017

Director Mick Jackson on Denial, Donald Trump, directing films, and how he followed The Bodyguard...

Mick Jackson has lived through several chapters of his directorial career. His background was television, in particular the stunning Threads, and his classy adaptation of Chris MullinsA Very British Coup. Then he went to Hollywood, directing the likes of L.A. Story, The Bodyguard and Volcano.

He’s been away from cinema for a while, courtesy of some intriguing television projects. But he returns to the big screen this weekend with Denial, a classy courtroom drama that brings the story of Holocaust denier David Irving’s infamous libel action to the cinema. We snagged a chat with him ahead of its release, with the promise of further conversation about his 90s output at a later date too.

Can you talk us through this particular film, and why you wanted to bring it to the big screen? »

Exclusive: Bill Milner on Netflix superhero movie iBoy

24 January 2017 8:16 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Andy Furlong

iBoy the latest Netflix Original film launches globally on the 27th of January. The film based on the young adult novel by Kevin Brooks stars Bill Milner and proves beyond doubt that this talented actor has seamlessly made the transition from child prodigy, to become one of the most promising up and coming movie stars out there.

We caught up with Bill (for the second time in recent months) to talk about iBoy and how he is proud that the film didn’t stray away from tackling the darker issues that affect teenagers nowadays. He also discusses the intensity of working on Steven Knight’s Locke as well as the importance of actors exposing themselves to different types of films and genres.

There are a lot of movies involving super powers out there at the moment, you yourself were involved in the X-Men franchise. What do you »

The Death of Good Screenwriting in Hollywood

23 January 2017 11:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe on the death of good screenwriting in Hollywood…

Awards season is in full swing, so it seems somewhat ironic to come and bemoan the dearth of good screenwriting within the modern studio system, but I’m going to anyway. Putting aside the award nominated films, my focus is more on those films that are more financially motivated or targeted toward genre fans. Let’s face it, La La Land, whilst it won’t redefine screenwriting, is going to be hard to pick apart. There is still good work out there, but it’s fewer and far between, and those films where the returns matter above all else, seem to be becoming increasingly more and more dumbed down. It seems like writers now get hired to write any old guff and the quality of the final draft is of no consequence.

The first subject of my ire is Avi Lerner, »
