Great Films Directed by Women Pt. 2

(In Alphabetical order)

Meek’s Cutoff

Directed by Kelly Reichardt

Kelly Reichardt had a stellar if hushed 2000s, and then she commenced the current decade with a film that is already beginning to feel like an unsung modern classic. Meek’s Cutoff is one of those exhilarating instances in which a marriage of disparate styles produces something tricky to imagine, but perfect to behold: a period piece set in mid-1800’s Oregon, shot in academy ratio and classically beautiful for it, but with Reichardt’s signature severe naturalism. The result is so stark and understated that it begins to feel graceful, weirdly epic. A small caravan of settlers (featuring Michelle Williams and a once again devout Paul Dano) hires a guide, big-talking Stephen Meek, to help them navigate the Oregon Trail. As the terrain grows less forgiving and water evermore scarce, the settlers begin to wonder if the route Meek

British Independent Film Awards Winners Announced

It has been a fantastic year for British independent film with Steven McQueen’s Shame, Ben Wheatley’s Kill List and the directorial debut of Paddy Considine, Tyrannosaur, heading up a fine list of nominees.

There was a particularly strong set of nominees competing for the Douglas Hickox Award for Best Debut Director with Richard Ayoade’s wonderful coming of age love story Submarine and Joe Cornish’s Attack the Block being firm favourites here. Lynne Ramsay’s We Need to Talk About Kevin made for a fine return for director Lynne Ramsay and there’s a lot of love for Andrew Haigh’s Weekend, which was represented tonight in two categories.

It’s great to see Paddy Considine’s film do so well, not least the award for Olivia Colman, and the awards represent a very promising time for the British film industry, with some very strong voices emerging in the last year.

"Tyrannosaur" Tops the British Independent Film Awards 2011

  • MUBI
Live streaming of the British Independent Film Awards this evening came off much more smoothly than last night's hiccuping and lurching feed from the European Film Awards, which is a damn fine thing, considering that the show was far, far more entertaining. Particularly since host Chris O'Dowd became increasingly inebriated as the evening wore on.

So, the full list of winners and nominees:

Best British Independent Film: Tyrannosaur.

Also nominated: Senna, Shame, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and We Need to Talk About Kevin.

Best Director: Lynne Ramsay for We Need to Talk About Kevin.

Also nominated: Ben Wheatley for Kill List, Steve McQueen for Shame, Tomas Alfredson for Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Paddy Considine for Tyrannosaur.

The Douglas Hickox Award for Best Debut Director: Paddy Considine for Tyrannosaur.

Also nominated: Joe Cornish for Attack the Block, Ralph Fiennes for Coriolanus, John Michael McDonagh for The Guard and Richard Ayoade for Submarine.

British Independent Film Awards Nominations Are In

  • HeyUGuys
With the London Film Festival now over, a swathe of summer releases coming out on DVD, and London’s Regent Street decked out in cartoon character-based lights, it’s that time of year again – Awards Season.

And while we’re still a few months away from the Golden Globes, BAFTAs and Oscars (although not the ‘For Your Consideration’ campaigns), the nominees for the British Independent Film Awards were announced yesterday. We’ve posted the full list below.

While it would be hard to fault any of the films nominated in terms of quality, what you may notice is that some of the films nominated were released at the beginning of this year (Submarine for instance), while some (Wild Bill springs to mind) won’t see the light of day until next year. We asked Elliot Grove, the founder of the awards, who explained that the films that hadn’t been

British Indie Film goes with “Shame,” “Tinker” and “Tyrannosaur” – Awards Alley

By Sean O’Connell

Hollywoodnews.com: The British Independent Film Awards announced nominees for its 14tht annual awards ceremony, which will be held on Dec. 4 in London, and three films led the charge with seven nominations apiece.

Steve McQueen’s “Shame,” Tomas Alfredson’s “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy” and Paddy Considine’s “Tyrannosaur” each nabbed seven nods, including Best British Independent Film for all three. They’ll compete against the Formula One documentary “Senna” and Lynne Ramsay’s “We Need to Talk About Kevin” in that top category.

The recognition helps “Shame” and “Tinker,” which were hovering on the outskirts of the ongoing Oscar race. But will they also propel Considine’s drama into the thick of the discussion? Any acknowledgement certainly helps. Now it’s up to Strand Releasing, which handles “Tyrannosaur,” to build on the momentum.

I’m also thrilled to see love for “Kevin” co-stars Tilda Swinton

The Notable Films of 2011: Part Ten

My Idiot Brother

Opens: 2011

Cast: Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, Emily Mortimer, Steve Coogan

Director: Jesse Peretz

Summary: Ned is a well-meaning idealist just released from prison for dealing cannabis. In succession, he disrupts the lives and homes of his three sisters: a career-driven journalist about to get her big break; a bisexual hipster whose lies are disrupting her relationship; and a married mother who hasn't noticed that her marriage is falling apart.

Analysis: Scoring a good response over the weekend at the Sundance Film Festival, this broad light comedy with a sweet heart charmed the pants off The Weinstein Company to the tune of around $6 million for distribution rights. That covers most of its sub-$10 million budget, a number that it could potentially outgross by several factors if the good-natured tone hinted at in the reviews were correct. If anything, the few negatives tended to be because this
