Tony Scott: A Moving Target—Movement B

3 December 2012 2:13 PM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

 

Part of the Tony Scott: A Moving Target critical project. Go here for the project's description, index and links to project's other movement.

To the overabundance of text, sounds, images—and moving images—in Tony Scott, we reply with something like our own. So let me (try to) keep this (almost as) short as a Tony Scott shot. Scott’s death this past summer would elicit film critics’ own counterpart to American politics:  opinions and generalizations bandied between two camps who were, as always, preaching to their respective choirs. And needless to say, such discourses would be about as useful, informative, and interesting as American politics. For Scott’s work was hardly encamped: the outward liberalism of Enemy of the State, perhaps Hollywood’s most overt attack on our surveillance nation and the Nsa, possible only before 9/11, concludes that only Nsa aspirants can take down the Nsa, just as Man on Fire, »

TonyScottDeathSong

3 December 2012 6:11 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

 

This article is part of the critical project Tony Scott: A Moving Target in which an analysis of a scene from a Tony Scott film is passed anonymously to the next participant in the project to respond to with an analysis of his or her own.

<- the previous analysis | movement index   | the next analysis ->

“They say this place here is haunted.

Yeah, but only by a ghost...”

It’s a good way to burrow in, those Superimpositions. Those defiant anti-subtitles. “I’m having Font issues...” Walken whines somewhere. Me too. My favorite is in Domino: the fabulously absurd and banal, the “with Dad” that over-clarifies that the guy who looks nothing like Lawrence Harvey (who ever did?), that guy we’ve just seen in The Manchurian Candidate in 1962 is, in the diegetic account, still alive, and still her father in 1993. Markerian is supposedly the word for this.

Superimposition of text—against and over the weak image. »

So much more than a pretty face: Brad Pitt's top 10 roles

27 November 2012 7:11 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

When your face is so genuinely, distractingly, beautiful (trust me, I Saw It), getting people to notice any talents outside of your poreless skin, brilliant eyes and criminally symmetrical face is going to be a battle because we like things that look nice.

Brad Pitt toiled in the pretty boy ghetto for a number of years and he was able to impress with roles that most often played to his strengths (see: ability to look good while crying, scenes that required his blond hair to flit in the wind, etc.) until he got grungy for David Fincher's Fight Club (1999). Though his toned body was still visible beneath the dirt of Tyler Durden, he showed he was game to play against type and it's telling that he was first nominated for an Oscar when he de-beautified for 1995's 12 Monkeys, complete with buzz cut and wonky eye.

Tony Scott: A Moving Target

26 November 2012 2:40 PM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

For some time after Tony Scott tragically, mysteriously took his life earlier this year we tried to think of some way to honor his work and explore it on the Notebook. A proper response was found by filmmaker, editor and Notebook contributor Gina Telaroli, who suggested a kind of critical exquisite corpse, and in this manner forge a way—or an attempt—to fit the forms of Tony Scott's oeuvre to the content critics would contribute.

The project was simple in practice though a bit complicated in explanation: each participant would be restricted to a one week time limit in which he or she would pick a scene from a single Tony Scott film and write an analysis of it before passing that analysis anonymously to the next person in the project. The recipient would be tasked to "respond" to that analysis with a different scene from a different movie, »

Brad Pitt Eating: The Mashup

26 November 2012 7:00 AM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Movie characters may seem more glamorous than you and me, but they've gotta eat. And you know who eats a lot in movies? Brad Pitt. And unlike the rest of us, even in comic moments, he looks good doing it (shocker).

Pitt did a fair amount of eating in his Oscar-nominated turn as Billy Beane in "Moneyball," but he chows down so much in so many movies, we're starting to wonder if the actor just gets hungry on set and brings his lunch into the scene with him. We're just waiting to see how much he ingests in "Killing Them Softly," out this week.

Movies Included (Click to Buy):

TroyMr. and Mrs. Smith | Moneyball | Ocean's Eleven | Johnny Suede | The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford | The Devil's Own | Inglorious Basterds  | Across the Tracks | Cutting Class | Kalifornia | Spy Game | Meet Joe Black | Sleepers | Seven Years in Tibet »

Mubi Presents: "The Great Scott" in New York

19 November 2012 7:58 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

This December, Mubi will be presenting a small Tony Scott retrospective in New York at 92YTribeca. See below for the films, dates and notes. All movies will be shown on film.

***

American cinema lost one of its great, unsung, emigre directors when Tony Scott mysteriously took his life earlier this August. A pioneer in the commercial advertisement aesthetic of the 80s, Scott would take that aesthetic and build upon it, transferring it to a post-9/11 world with hyperfast cutting and camerawork that would eventually come to define the decade and the director. Gina Telaroli and I, working with 92YTribeca's Cristina Cacioppo, have assembled a program featuring one key film from each of Scott's three American periods. To draw out some of the best and overlooked qualities of his small but aesthetically and thematically coherent oeuvre, we're also accompanying each film with a short from the avant-garde, and completed the package »

Tarantino Xx: 8-film Collection with Mondo Artwork on Blu-ray November 20th

27 October 2012 7:57 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

In anticipation of the release of Tarantino Xx: 8-film Collection on Blu-ray this November 20th, 2012, check out the full interior artwork created by Mondo artist Ken Taylor. Stylistic, bold and unique, Ken Taylor add the same artistic flair to this boxed set as he has for so many of his Mondo poster designs, including this amazing poster for Drive (2011) amongst others. A fitting addition to a boxed set already so highly anticipated it could literally make some film buffs’ heads actually explode. For many, this may be a rare opportunity to own some Mondo art, even if mass produced, as original Mondo prints typically sell out within minutes, if not seconds. For many, it’s been a long wait as we’ve watched various Blu-ray editions of Tarantino films pop up in other countries, but not in the United States… ’till now. Tarantino + Blu-ray + Mondo = a very happy fan of cool cinema! »

20 Years of Tarantino films hit Blu-Ray in ‘Tarantino Xx’

17 September 2012 8:33 AM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

Whether you love him or hate him, there is no doubt that Quentin Tarantino is a filmmaker that has definitely changed the language of cinema. Factor in that for the most part, Tarantino has directed all of his films via one company also makes it easier for a company like Lionsgate to publish a collection of his films celebrating his existence in film. Lionsgate will be re-releasing his 8 groundbreaking films on Blu-Ray in one very attractive set featuring a cover by Mondo by Ken Taylor. While this is definitely a double dip for some if not all Blu-Ray collectors, the fact that it is all in one package should attract you to make a purchase in the 8 film collection. I’m even missing some of his films on Blu-Ray so this set is still worth it to me. Read below for the press release.
