Great Job, Internet!: Video essay illustrates the power of Alfonso Cuarón’s long take

8 hours ago | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Long takes in films can be a great tool for filmmakers to engage their audiences, or it can simply be a way for hotshot auteurs to show off their ingenuity and grit. In the wrong hands, it’s a showy move that never does much beyond displaying the technical cleverness of an artist. But in the right hands, as showcased in this video essay by Nathan Shapiro (and edited by Ben Hamlen), it’s a way of establishing mood, imparting information, and immersing audiences in a situation and emotion from which they struggle to break free.

Alfonso Cuaron: The Art of Letting it Play from Nathan Shapiro on Vimeo.

In this video, Shapiro examines the way Alfonso Cuarón uses long takes in three of his films: Y Tu Mamá También, Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban, and Children Of Men (he mentions Gravity toward the end). In each »

Edinburgh interview: 'Moon Dogs'

21 June 2016 5:56 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Screen spoke to the first-time feature producer of well-received Edinburgh title Moon Dogs, backed by Welsh, Irish and Scottish film bodies.

Moon Dogs is a gem that unearthed at the Edinburgh Film Festival, a Scottish Y Tu Mamá También that sees two half-brothers (Jack Parry Jones and newcomer Christy O’Donnell) journey from the Shetlands to Glasgow pursuing romantic and musical dreams.

First time feature film producer Kathy Speirs, who set up her company Un Helly Aa / Clydebank Films in 2012, tells how she managed to persuade the Welsh, Scottish and Irish film boards to finance a film [budgeted between £500k-£1m] from a first time director (Philip John) and producer, featuring no star names.

What were the origins of the film?

The film came about because of my friendship with screenwriters Raymond Friel and Derek Boyle, who I have known for a number of years and they have written two feature films, The Calcium Kid (2004) with Orlando Bloom and Botched (2007), starring »

‘Mozart In The Jungle’ Star Gael García Bernal On Music & Mexico City – Awardsline

15 June 2016 3:25 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Gael García Bernal is perhaps still best known for his film work (Y Tu Mamá También, Motorcycle Diaries), but his first foray into television with Amazon's comedy Mozart in the Jungle has certainly garnered him plenty of acclaim, since he won a Globe this year for his portrayal of Rodrigo, conductor of the New York Symphony. For the role, Bernal had to learn to convincingly fake expert violin performances and to conduct in venues as intimidating as The Hollywood Bowl. Now… »

9 May 2016 10:57 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

A few months back, we reported that a new Zorro movie is in the works with Alfonso Cuaron’s son Jonas taking control at the helm. Well, now it looks like Cuaron has cast his leading man, Gael Garcia Bernal.

Bernal will play Zorro in the reboot, which is being referred to a simply Z, and the word on the street is that it will be set slightly in the future. Cuaron also wrote the screenplay for the film, which is expected to head to the Cannes Film Festival this week to be sold around the world.

Bernal led Jonas Cuaron‘s superb directorial effort Desierto, which debuted at last year’s London Film Festival, and also Alfonso Cuaron’s stunning Y Tu Mamá También back in 2001.

More on the new Zorro movie as we get it.

Watch: Celebrate the Greatest Cinematography of All-Time With New Video Essay

28 April 2016 12:40 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, then there will never be a definitive list of the greatest cinematography, but for our money, one of the finest polls has been recently conducted on the matter. Our friend Scout Tafoya polled over 60 critics on Fandor, including some of us here, and the results can be found in a fantastic video essay below. Rather than the various wordless supercuts that crowd Vimeo, Tafoya wrestles with his thoughts on cinematography as we see the beautiful images overlaid from the top 12 choices.

“I’ve been thinking of the world cinematographically since high school,” Scout says. “Sometime around tenth grade I started looking out windows, at crowds of my peers, at the girls I had crushes on, and imagining the best way to film them. Lowlight, mini-dv or 35mm? Curious and washed out like the way Emmanuel Lubezki shot Y Tu Mamá También, »

“No Kids” was the third highest grossing Argentinian film of 2015. This delightfully energetic comedy from Ariel Winograd (“My First Wedding,” “To Fool a Thief”) centers on Gabriel (Diego Peretti) a divorced father who dotes on his 9-year-old daughter Sofía (Guadalupe Manent, who steals the movie in her big screen debut). Their relationship is disrupted when he falls in love with the child-hating Vicky (Maribel Verdú, “Y Tu Mamá También”), forcing Gabriel to jump through hoops to conceal his daughter. »

How Alfonso Cuaron Went Back to Scratch to Rekindle His Career After ‘Great Expectations’

20 April 2016 5:49 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

From “Gravity” to “Children of Men,” director Alfonso Cuarón and cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki have created some of the most visually arresting and emotionally compelling movies of modern times. They’ve won Oscars and fans across the globe, and their reliance on long, seamless tracking shots has inspired a rising generation of filmmakers.

But their collaborations didn’t always result in celluloid magic. In a public discussion about their careers at the Tribeca Film Festival on Wednesday, Cuarón and Lubezki dismissed 1998’s “Great Expectations,” a modernized retelling of the Charles Dickens novel, as a black mark on their resumes.

“I think it’s a complete failed film,” said Cuarón, while Lubezki agreed that it was “the least satisfying of our movies.”

The film followed “A Little Princess,” a critically beloved children’s story that both men found immensely satisfying to make. They lacked the same connection to the story of an »

Everybody Runs: An Interview with Louis Garrel

14 March 2016 7:51 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Two FriendsThough known primarily as an actor, Louis Garrel has been conducting appreciable efforts behind the camera as well. After directing three short films, including a César-nominated Petit tailleur, and most recently La règle de trois, Louis Garrel expands upon his fascination of threes with his first feature length film, Two Friends (Les deux amis), in which he also stars. Based loosely on  the French play The Moods of Marianne, Garrel's film finds professional movie extra Vincent (Vincent Macaigne) in frenzied love with Mona (Goldshifteh Farahani), who cannot and will not give in to his romantic advances due in part to her restrictive situation, which she keeps secret. She works behind a pastry counter by day, but every evening must return to prison for curfew, not unlike an incarcerated Cinderella. Vincent enlists his best friend, the caddish Abel (Louis Garrel), to help win her over or at least understand her cooling passion. »

10 Sexiest Movies You’ve Never Heard Of

31 January 2016 7:07 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Focus Features

Sex and the cinema have always gone hand in hand, predominantly because they are both subjects that heavily rely on the idea of fantasy. Inevitably, filmmakers have thus exploited sex – and all that is associated with the act – to varied results across the span of the century.

There are the “classic” films built around themes of sex, of course: Last Tango in Paris, Belle de Jour, In the Realm of the Senses, Salo, or the 120 Days of Sodom. Then there also those films that have been branded as outright “sexy” – films such as Wild Things, Cruel IntentionsY Tu Mamá También, The Dreamers and Secretary – which exist purposely to ignite something in the loins. And it’s those sorts of films that this list is interested in.

Everyone is familiar with Basic Instinct and Eyes Wide Shut as far as sexy cinematic ventures go, but what about the »
