Alfonso Cuarón Is the Best Director of the 21st Century, According to Metacritic — See the Top 25

22 July 2017 10:14 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Using the proprietary powers of the Metascore, everyone’s favorite review aggregator (sorry, Rotten Tomatoes) has ranked the 25 best directors of the 21st century. The results were found by averaging the reviews of filmmakers who have released at least four movies since January 1, 2000, and thus represent more of a number crunch than a subjective list.

As the two lowest-ranked auteurs are tied with an average Metascore of 78.4, essentially anyone who’s released at least one movie that received middling reviews didn’t make the cut — meaning that everyone from Quentin Tarantino and Terrence Malick to Sofia Coppola and Wes Anderson won’t be found here.

Topping the list is Alfonso Cuarón, whose average score of 87.5 comes from four highly acclaimed movies: “Gravity” (96), “Y Tu Mamá También” (88), “Children of Men” (84), and “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban »

The Academy Award winner spoke about how for him filmmaking started as just a means of survival. “I come from a middle-class family and I grew up at a time when the golden age of cinema was over in Mexico. Cinema was my survival instinct, I needed it. I wouldn’t recommend the path I took to anyone,” he said, according to the official Cannes site.

Cannes: Alfonso Cuarón On Del Toro, ‘Chivo’ And Giving It All He’s Got

25 May 2017 1:47 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In Cannes Wednesday. Alfonso Cuarón gave a Masterclass spanning his life and passions: Friendships and films, made in both Mexico and Hollywood.

As Cuarón gave the class, he said, proving humble throughout his interview with Michel Simon, that the “true masters” were elsewhere in the festival, hinting that he doesn’t count himself among them. He pointed out that his was “a journey filled with insecurities,” which he considers a catalyst for his friendship with fellow Mexican filmmaker Guillermo del Toro, who Cuarón called a fellow “blue collar” filmmaker.

The two met making TV when del Toro complimented the Steven King story which Cuarón had based one of his pieces on, commenting that, “The story is so good, so why did your short suck so bad?” Although the words surprised Cuarón he says del Toro was right, and since then the two have been fast friends.

Cuarón shot “Roma” along with Olivares, who’s worked on a number of productions in Mexico over the last several years: “La Rabia de Clara,” “Australia,” “Hear Me Lord.”. “Returning to my country with this specific project was something very personal, because we made a film set in the ’70s, with many elements and experiences of my childhood,” said Cuarón of “Roma, »

Alfonso Cuarón wraps shooting on new film 'Roma'

15 March 2017 1:36 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Director reveals title and plot details of his upcoming Mexico-set film.

Alfonso Cuarón revealed at a press conference in Mexico City on Tuesday (14 March) that he has finished shooting his new film Roma.

The project saw the director return to his native Mexico for a 1970s-set drama about a year in the life of a middle-class family.

According to The Associated Press, Cuarón said the success of his previous film Gravity enabled him to make this personal project back in his homeland.

“Movies are like a cereal box - at the bottom there is the promise of a toy,” he told reporters.

Gravity was that cereal box and I got that little toy, which usually leads to a bigger film with more production, with more stars. But I decided to return to Mexico City to make this movie with the resources I had always dreamed about.”

He added: “I can live abroad, but my head »

Arik Reviews Felipe Cazals’ Canoa: A Shameful Memory [Criterion Collection Blu-ray review]

14 March 2017 8:59 PM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

One of my great joys, as a fan of world cinema, is when I start watching a film that I have no expectations for, and am completely blown away. I immediately want to recommend it to anyone I know that might also enjoy it. It feels like I found a secret, even if it’s only new to me. This film fits completely into this category. I know very little about the history of Mexican cinema, and Latin American films are hardly well represented in the collection. To learn a little bit more was such a treat, and just whets my appetite for more of the great films from this era.

The film is based on a true story, and all the details of that story are revealed in the first minute of the film, so there are no spoilers here. In 1968, two weeks before the Tlatelolco massacre of student protesters in Mexico City, »

14 March 2017 1:53 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Alfonso Cuarón is back! The filmmaker has remained relatively quiet since winning Best Director at the Oscars three years ago for “Gravity,” but at a press conference (via Filmeweb) in Mexico earlier today, he confirmed he has finished production on his next movie, a family drama titled “Roma.” This is the first time the title has been revealed.

News broke last September that Cuarón would be directing a new movie set in Mexico, his first since “Y Tu Mamá También” made him a star on the international film circuit. At the time, the only details around the project were that it would be set in the 1970s and follow the year in the life of a middle-class family. The director is remaining tight-lipped on plot details for now, but he did reveal just how important it »

Nightwing: 5 Actors Who Could Take On The Role Of Dick Grayson

24 February 2017 3:20 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Yesterday, we learned that there will be a live action Nightwing film that will be directed by Chris McKay! So who is Chris McKay and why is this huge news? Outside of Robot Chicken, Morel Orel (funny if you remember the '80ish Sunday morning Christian show), and -- wait -- that is about it, right? So what has he done? Oh yeah. The Lego Batman Movie. He was able to combine all of the "negative & dark" elements of Batman and make him into a character that you originally love to hate, but finally are totally on-board with. Many are saying that The Lego Batman is the best Batman ever featured on the big screen, including Matt Damon and Ben Affleck.

At this point with all the back and forth of Affleck and the possibility of The Batman movie, I do not care what I hear, until I see a trailer. »

17 of Hollywood’s Top Cinematographers You Should Be Following on Instagram

4 February 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

One of the jobs that the general public doesn’t pay that much attention to — but probably should — is that of the cinematographer. If you think a film looks gorgeous and you’re able to get swept away by what you’re seeing on the screen, that’s all thanks to this man or woman’s work behind the scenes. Turns out, though, you can even see these folks showcase their talent on social media.

Since the role of cinematographer is often referred to as the director of photography — shortened to Dp or Dop — it only makes sense that we hone in Instagram as that’s one popular online platform dedicated specifically to photos. Let’s take a look at 16 of the cinematographers who are utilizing Instagram to showcase more of their work and giving us a glimpse of »

How Often Do Foreign-Language Films Score Screenwriting Oscar Nominations Or Wins?

4 January 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

Toni Erdmann’ (Courtesy: Tiff)

By: Carson Blackwelder

Managing Editor

It’s not too often that foreign-language films get recognized for anything at the Oscars beyond the best foreign-language film category — but it does happen. And, believe it or not, it happens more for best original screenplay and best adapted screenplay than many other categories. A prime example of that is Toni Erdmann, Germany’s submission this year that is proving to be a cross-category threat, which could score a nomination — or a win — for its writing.

The story of Toni Erdmann — which has a solid Rotten Tomatoes score of 91% — follows a father who is trying to reconnect with his adult daughter after the death of his dog. It sounds simple enough but, of course, the two couldn’t be more unalike. The film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2016 and where it won the Fipresci Prize. Since then, it »
