Mulholland Drive Tops BBC's 100 Best Movies of the 21st Century List

16 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The modern movie landscape can make some people feel like the best days of film are behind us. With remakes, reboots and adaptations very abundant, and original movies seemingly not raking it in at the box office, that is an understandable sentiment. But the BBC felt like there are a lot of recent movies worth celebrating, and that is why they set out to make a list of the 100 greatest movies of the 21st century. The list they came up with is nothing if not interesting, and it is definitely a reminder that there are a lot of great movies that have been made in the last 16 years.

BBC published the list on Tuesday morning, after taking months to put it all together. In order to come up with this list, they used nearly 200 critics from both print and online publications, as well as academics and curators. The contributors that were used spanned the globe, »

The 100 Greatest Films of the 21st Century: BBC Polls Critics From Around The Globe

20 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Last year, the BBC polled a bunch of critics to determine the 100 greatest American films of all time and only six films released after 2000 placed at all. This year, the BBC decided to determine the “new classics,” films from the past 16 years that will likely stand the test of time, so they polled critics from around the globe for their picks of the 100 greatest films of the 21st Century so far. David Lynch’s “Mulholland Dr.” tops the list, Wong Kar-Wai’s “In The Mood For Love” places second, and Paul Thomas Anderson and the Coen Brothers both have 2 films in the top 25. See the full results below.

Though the list itself is fascinating, what’s also compelling are the statistics about the actual list. According to the the BBC, they polled 177 film critics from every continent except Antarctica. »

Mullholland Drive tops critics' list of best 21st century films

23 August 2016 2:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Aug 23, 2016

A critics' survey puts Mullholland Drive at the top of the list of the best films since 2000. Did yours make the cut?

Movie critics love Linklater, Studio Ghibli, the Coens and the surrealist stylings of David Lynch. At least, that's if a newly-published list of the 100 greatest films of the 21st century is anything to go by.

BBC Culture commissioned the poll, which took in responses from 177 film critics from all over the world. As a result, the top 100 includes an eclectic mix of the mainstream to independent movies, from dramas to sci-fi and off-beat comedies. Feew would be surprised to see things like Paolo Sorrentino's handsome Italian confection The Great Beauty propping up the lower end of the list, or that such acclaimed directors as Wes Anderson or the aforementioned Coens feature heavily. 

What is pleasing to see, though, is how much good genre stuff has made the cut, »

22 August 2016 6:23 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Although we’re only about 16% into the 21st century thus far, the thousands of films that have been released have provided a worthy selection to reflect on the cinematic offerings as they stand. We’ve chimed in with our favorite animations, comedies, sci-fi films, and have more to come, and now a new critics’ poll that we’ve taken part in has tallied up the 21st century’s 100 greatest films overall.

The BBC has polled 177 critics from around the world, resulting in a variety of selections, led by David Lynch‘s Mulholland Drive. Also in the top 10 was Wong Kar-wai‘s In the Mood For Love and Terrence Malick‘s The Tree of Life, which made my personal ballot (seen at the bottom of the page).

In terms of the years with the most selections, 2012 and 2013 each had 9, while Wes Anderson, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Christopher Nolan, the Coens, Michael Haneke, and »

12 August 2016 9:52 AM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Sitting dead-center in Brad Pitt’s fan-favorite WWII comfort zone, this new teaser trailer for Robert ZemeckisAllied should put plenty of folks in mind of Pitt’s hits.

Brad Pitt's Allied Gets Teaser Trailer: Why It Already Looks Like a Dramatic Version of Mr. and Mrs. Smith

12 August 2016 9:23 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Brad Pitt is putting his spy hat on yet again. No stranger to war movies, having appeared in Inglourious Basterds and Fury, Pitt has learned a thing or two about war and spies. In his upcoming movie, Allied, Pitt stars as an intelligence officer in North Africa who forms a relationship with a French resistance fighter played by Marion Cotillard. With the pressures of war looming over them, Pitt and Cotillard's relationship becomes a risk. If the plot seems vaguely familiar, you wouldn't be wrong. A drama film taking place in the height of World War II, Allied still manages to give give us Mr. and Mrs. Smith vibes, if only because of the chemistry between Pitt and Cotillard, as well as the whole spy plot. »

Quentin Tarantino Pays Homage to Brian De Palma’s ‘Femme Fatale’ in Tantalizing Video Essay – Watch

12 August 2016 9:20 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Quentin Tarantino has never been one to shy away from lauding his filmmaking heroes for their work or heaping on the homages to other cinema classics in his own works, and fans of the “Inglourious Basterds” and “Pulp Fiction” director’s films often find much to explore and discover within his frames. One such example are some of the (very sexy) parallels between Tarantino’s still-maligned “Death Proof” and Brian De Palma’s similarly overlooked “Femme Fatale,” especially when it comes to a pair of tantalizing dance scenes.

Brad Pitt, Marion Cotillard Are Spies in Love in ‘Allied’ First Trailer

12 August 2016 8:35 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard are spies in love in the tense first trailer for Robert Zemeckis’ World War II romantic thriller “Allied.”

“Is this a game?” Pitt asks in the 60-second teaser, released by Paramount Pictures on Friday. “A test,” he’s told.

Pitt stars as a U.S. intelligence officer Max Vatan who encounters French Resistance fighter Marianne Beausejour (Cotillard) during a mission behind enemy lines in Casablanca in 1942 to kill a German ambassador. They’re forced into a pretend marriage that develops into a real love eventually tested, when they reunite in London, by the pressures of war and the secrets of their past.

Pitt returns to WWII after his recent turn as American tank commander Sgt. Don “Wardaddy” Collier in David Ayer’s drama “Fury” and Lt. Aldo Raine in Quentin Tarantino’s 2009 alternate history movie “Inglourious Basterds.”

How Diane Kruger Went From Ballet Dancer to Actress And Found Herself Along the Way

12 August 2016 8:15 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“How are you not a big damn star?” This was the question I most itching to ask German actress Diane Kruger when we sat down to discuss her curious career and her latest lauded film, Alice Winocour’s surreal thriller “Disorder.”

A striking beauty with regal cheekbones, the tri-lingual Kruger has been awing audiences for years, thanks to turns in French prestige pictures like Benoît Jacquot’s “Farewell, My Queen” and bold American movies like Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds.” Yet somehow, Kruger’s path has not led her to A-list status. Retracing her steps from ballerina to model to internationally acclaimed thespian, we explored the whys and why bother of it all.

12 August 2016 7:58 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Editor’s Note: This article is presented in partnership with Bleecker Street’s release of “Anthropoid,” directed by Sean Ellis and starring Jamie Dornan and Cillian Murphy. “Anthropoid” is now playing in theaters.

This week, “Anthropoid” looks to join the ranks of a rich and complex cinematic history: films about World War II. A global conflict that has yielded global stories, World War II continues to be the basis for films that challenge our perceptions. “Anthropoid” uncovers an episode from before the fighting stopped, focusing on the attempt to assassinate high-ranking SS General Reinhard Heydrich. Writer/Director Sean Ellis uses the true-life mission as a backdrop for a talented ensemble, including Cillian MurphyJamie Dornan and Toby Jones.

The best of these modern WWII films never lose sight of the idea that this was a conflict fought by individuals. Their weapons and their ideologies were varied, but this was history »

Brad Pitt, Marion Cotillard Battle Nazis in First ‘Allied’ Trailer (Video)

12 August 2016 7:57 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard go behind enemy lines in the first trailer for “Allied.” Pitt plays U.S. intelligence officer Max Vatan, who in 1942 North Africa encounters French Resistance fighter Marianne Beausejour (Cotillard) on a deadly mission behind enemy lines.

Allied: first trailer for new WWII thriller with Brad Pitt

12 August 2016 6:22 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Aug 12, 2016

Director Robert Zemeckis' next film is the WWII thriller Allied, starring Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard. Here's the first trailer...

Brad Pitt's spent quite a bit of time in World War II in recent years, whether he was a lantern-jawed Nazi hunter in Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds or tucked up in a tank in David Ayer's Fury.

This year's Allied sees Pitt team up with director Robert Zemeckis and co-star Marion Cotillard in a romantic thriller about a pair of spies who fall in love while on a mission in Casablanca. Written by Steven Knight, the writer-director behind such movies as Locke and Hummingbird, it looks like a throwback to the kind of movies Hollywood seldom makes anymore.

It's also the latest in a string of really good dramas from Zemeckis, following Flight and the dizzying The Walk from last year. Here's hoping »

'Disorder' Review: Not the Paranoid Thriller You're Looking For

12 August 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Tall, dark, and brooding, Belgian actor Matthias Schoenaerts is the man you go to when you need bruised masculinity, International Cinema Division. If you’ve seen him as the hormonally jacked cattle breeder in the Oscar-nominated Bullhead (2011), or the oddly tender underground fighter in Rust and Bone (2012), or the Brooklyn thug giving Tom Hardy mad tsuris in The Drop (2014), you know what we're talking about here. He can do sexy, menacing, sensitive and messed-in-the head simultaneously. It's just a matter of when regarding the big crossover moment, not if.

Brad Pitt vs. Brad Pitt: Why ‘Allied’ Has An Awards Release, But ‘War Machine’ Doesn’t

8 August 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Why has Netflix quietly moved their much-ballyhooed acquisition of David Michôd’s “War Machine,” a satiric comedy starring Brad Pitt as a general based on Afghan star Stanley McChrystal, back to 2017?

Netflix is making room for another Brad Pitt movie with awards in its sights, they confirmed. Paramount is releasing Bob Zemeckis’s World War II espionage romance “Allied,”starring Pitt and Marion Cotillard, on November 23. Pitt likes this period: he played military men in both Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds” and David Ayer’s “Fury.”

Produced by Pitt’s Plan B with Ian Bryce, “War Machine” marks Netflix’s highest-budget movie commitment to date—Ted Sarandos paid a reported premium higher than its $60-million budget because when the online streamer buys all world rights to a property, it’s a flat acquisition. They pay no overages in success.

But clearly, reaching viewers directly through Netflix is the goal for »

Take A Break From The Suicide Squad Drama With This Funny Spoof

4 August 2016 9:06 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Courtesy of Loot Crate, check out this Suicide Squad spoof which imagines a Quentin Tarantino version of the "Worst of the worst."  The video features Django from Django Unchained, The Bride and Gogo from Kill Bill, Aldo from Inglourious Basterds and Jules Winnfield from Pulp Fiction.  "Django? He shoots people. The Bride? She slices people. Aldo? He scalps people. Jules? He shoots people...again. Gogo? She's just crazy.  " Back in January, Tarantino himself confirmed that all of his films are (kinda) connected and in his own way, established that he's created two separate Cinematic Universes from in his body of work.  "There’s the realer than real universe, alright, and all the characters inhabit that one. But then there’s this movie universe. And so “From Dusk Till Dawn,” “Kill Bill,” they all take place in this special movie universe. So basically when the characters of “Reservoir Dogs” or “Pulp Fiction, »

Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Suicide Squad’ Viral Video is the Ultimate Dream Hero Mashup — Watch

1 August 2016 7:53 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

What would “Suicide Squad” look like if it were comprised of Quentin Tarantino characters instead of comic book villains? A new parody trailer is up to that test.

Loot Crate Productions has produced a short teaser comprised of lookalike actors playing “Pulp Fiction’s” Jules Winnfield (Samuel L. Jackson), “Inglourious Basterds’” Lt. Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt), “Django Unchained’s” Django (Jamie Foxx) and “Kill Bill’s” bride assassin (Uma Thurman) and Gogo “Chiaki Kuriyama.” There’s even a Tarantino character who has the director’s voice and mannerisms down to a T.

“We’re going to go somewhere very bad to do some very bad things to some very bad people,” the Tarantino character says in the roughly two-and-a-half minute faux trailer. There’s as much blood and bodies in the teaser as in any sequence from one of Tarantino’s movies, plus riffs on several of the unforgettable Tarantino one-liners. »
