"Adieu au langage" - "Goodbye to Language": A Works Cited

15 October 2014 5:26 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Adieu au langage - Goodbye to Language

A Works Cited

Introduction

From its bluntly political opening (Alfredo Bandelli's 'La caccia alle streghe': "Always united we win, long live the revolution!") to its hilarious fecal humor and word play—with 3D staging that happily puts to shame James Cameron and every other hack who's tried their hand at it these past several years—Adieu au langage overwhelms us with a deluge of recited texts, music and images, hardly ever bothering to slow down to let us catch our breath. Exhilarating and certainly not surprising—this is the guy who made Puissance de la parole after all!

The release of a new Godard film or video means a new encounter with texts, films and music often familiar from the filmmaker's earlier work—reworked and re-contextualized—as well as new discoveries to be sorted through and identified. This life-long interest in quotation »

'Sopranos' Creator David Chase Opens Up, Sort Of, About Its Finale

2 May 2014 12:04 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Sopranos creator David Chase fielded questions about the show – and offered some ambiguous answers to questions about its ambiguous finale – this week at the Museum of Moving Image in Queens, New York, IndieWire reports. Following screenings of both the series' pilot and finale (the only two episodes that Chase both wrote and directed), the producer revealed that the first episode could have been its own feature film if HBO didn't pick up the series. As for the finale, which ends (spoiler!) by cutting to black, obscuring the fates of the characters, »

The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: 'Jaws' is No. 1

29 April 2014 2:50 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

When I was growing up on the Jersey Shore, mere miles from the 1916 shark attacks that Peter Benchley used as inspiration for his best-selling novel, Steven Spielberg’s Jaws had a profound effect on my summers. Whenever I was alone in the water, I inevitably began to fear that I was being stalked by something beneath the surface. The panic would grow and grow — as John Williams’ daaa-dum music grew louder in my head — until I finally felt compelled to make a break for it. Swimming for my life, my flailing arms furiously pounded the water and my lungs felt »

The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: 'Star Wars'

28 April 2014 2:07 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Star Wars was a movie once. This is a basic fact that we all know. It was a single film released in theaters: A story with a beginning (kind of), a middle, and an end (kind of). There was a relatively small cast, composed of up-and-comers, unknowns, and one well-regarded British actor overdelivering on what looked to him like thin material. The film, released in theaters in 1977, had a simple story. There was a MacGuffin (The Death Star Plans!) and there was a Rescue Mission (Help Me, Obi-Wan Kenobi, You’re My Only Hope!) and there was a Final Battle. »

The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: 'Jurassic Park'

25 April 2014 1:46 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

More than two decades later, and we still can’t look at a cup of water the same.

Just as the rippling water in that now iconic scene signaled the T. rex’s grand entrance, so did Jurassic Park usher in a new era of cinematic innovation. Making a reality of so many childhood dreams, it marries moviemaking wizardry and emotional complexity to electrifying effect. Park also straddles a number of genres (action-adventure, family, thriller, and sci-fi, to name a few) on top of its ready-made merchandising and theme-park ride potential, ultimately offering something for everyone. But the leaps and »

The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: 'The Dark Knight'

24 April 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

There’s before The Dark Knight, and there’s after The Dark Knight. Before The Dark Knight, superhero movies were big for Hollywood and Christopher Nolan was a culty stylist and everyone loved Batman. After The Dark Knight, superhero movies were the defining Hollywood product and Christopher Nolan was everyone’s favorite Hollywood director and everyone really loved Batman.

You can try to explain The Dark Knight’s success by looking at the underlying factors of where we were at at the time — “we” as a nation, “we” as a global moviegoing public, “we” as a geekifying popular culture. A brutal election year faced America. »

The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: 'Raiders of the Lost Ark'

23 April 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

In 2014, it’s difficult to appreciate the awe felt by uninitiated audiences who saw Raiders of the Lost Ark in theaters in 1981. Think about the film’s opening scenes, which introduce Indiana Jones and his now-iconic fedora in the jungles of South America. He narrowly avoids getting shot in the back by his mutinous guides, proves his Zorro-esque expertise with a whip, cleverly maneuvers through the deadly booby-traps of an ancient Peruvian temple, flicks away tarantulas like they’re gnats, nabs the prized golden idol but sets off a chain-reaction of destruction that includes a giant boulder chasing him back out into the sunlight, »

The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: 'E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial'

22 April 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

There were movie aliens before E.T., and there were movie aliens after E.T., but none were as memorable (or weirdly adorable) as Steven Spielberg’s 1982 creation.

E.T. The Extra Terrestrial told the story of a young boy who discovers an extra-terrestrial — often referred to as a goblin before they find out its true origins — and forms a loving, brotherly relationship with it as he struggles with his parents’ recent separation. Between the amazing child acting in the film (more on that later), the wonders of an animatronic alien with facial expressions as real as mine or yours, and the tear-inspiring story, »

The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: 'Terminator 2: Judgment Day'

16 April 2014 10:12 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

The Terminator came out in 1984. Terminator 2: Judgment Day arrived seven years later. In the interim, Arnold Schwarzenegger became a new kind of action megastar, headlining a string of era-defining beefcake blockbusters. Commando, Predator, The Running Man, and Total Recall: The very titles echo down through history, dripping with gunsmoke and bicep sweat. But that era was coming to an end. The ’80s were over. Always a savvy operator, Schwarzenegger was already planning his pivot: Twins and Kindergarten Cop offered a kinder, gentler Arnold. (He loves kids! He loves De Vito!)

And so the essential twist that led to »

The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: 'Top Gun'

15 April 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Maverick has a problem: Too. Much. Awesome.

Maverick isn’t just a pilot. He’s the best pilot there ever was or ever will be. He’s not the best of the best: He’s the best of the best…of the best. But his superiors can’t handle Maverick. He flies the way he wants to fly — awesomely. His superiors try to teach him the value of teamwork or whatever. The super-hot lady instructor with the boy’s name tries to heal him using totally sweet neon-lighted lovemaking, and also by getting him to deal with his emotionally distant father. »

The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: 'The Sixth Sense'

14 April 2014 12:54 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

In the post-Lady in the Water era, it’s tough to remember how bonkers people once went for The Sixth Sense. But a mere millennium ago, M. Night Shyamalan’s atmospheric thriller was the toast of audiences and critics alike — a box office smash, a cultural touchstone, a freakin’ Best Picture nominee. Not only at the MTV Movie Awards, but also at the Oscars!

How did a simple, potentially gimmicky ghost story capture our hearts and minds so fully? Easy: because despite the shadow hindsight casts upon it, The Sixth Sense is a great movie. Its brief 107-minute run »

The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: 'Back to the Future'

9 April 2014 1:41 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Imagine a twisted world in which Back to the Future, a zany fable starring Eric Stoltz as Marty McFly and John Lithgow as Doc Brown — a mad scientist with a pet chimpanzee — is released by Disney in May 1985. The film ends with Marty traveling to a nuclear test site in Nevada and escaping the past via time-traveling refrigerator.

Not to mix our references, but this would indeed be the darkest timeline.

Thankfully, script rewrites, casting changes, and the power of Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment combined to transform that possible Back to the Future into the one that was actually »

'American Idol' 2014: You rank the Top 9

26 March 2014 7:19 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

On Wednesday the Top 9 had to pretend they were at the forefront of a band. (Which they are anyway, every week, at least if they wanna be!) The task was much easier said than done for a lot of ‘em. Meanwhile, Harry Connick Jr. ran up onstage to steal Ryan Seacrest’s shoe and shared a giant purple gummy bear (seriously? at least get red) with Jennifer Lopez. Later, she swore, but the five-second delay zapped it out of existence. Was it an s-bomb or an f-bomb or another rendition of “I Luh Ya Papi”? We’ll never know. Anyway, »

Lena Dunham Gets Naked on 'SNL'

9 March 2014 7:05 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Nudity has long been one of the biggest talking points surrounding HBO's Girls, so it came as no surprise that it took a prominent position in Lena Dunham's debut as host of Saturday Night Live. "There is an old saying: If you're nervous about giving a speech, just imagine the audience naked," the 27-year-old writer/director/actress said during her opening monologue. "Or at least imagine that they haven't seen you naked." The monologue progressed into a series of cringingly intimate sexual disclosures from castmembers and offered Dunham an »
