DVD Playhouse December 2010

By

Allen Gardner

America Lost And Found: The Bbs Story (Criterion) Perhaps the best DVD box set released this year, this ultimate cinefile stocking stuffer offered up by Criterion, the Rolls-Royce of home video labels, features seven seminal works from the late ‘60s-early ‘70s that were brought to life by cutting edge producers Bert Schneider, Steve Blauner and director/producer Bob Rafelson, the principals of Bbs Productions. In chronological order: Head (1968) star the Monkees, the manufactured (by Rafelson, et al), American answer to the Beatles who, like it or not, did make an impact on popular culture, particularly in this utterly surreal piece of cinematic anarchy (co-written by Jack Nicholson, who has a cameo), which was largely dismissed upon its initial release, but is now regarded as a counterculture classic. Easy Rider (1969) is arguably regarded as the seminal ‘60s picture, about two hippie drug dealers (director Dennis Hopper »

After announcing the 58 films in four categories that would be eligible for awards at Sundance, the film fest has now announced the next 57 movies to be screened this coming January. These 57 films are of course out of competition and will be included in Premieres, Next, Spotlight, New Frontiers and Midnight categories. Most are big name projects from already established filmmakers and some have already made their way around film festival in 2010. The list includes Kevin Smith’s Red State, Tom McCarthy’s Win Win, Morgan Spurlock’s documentary The Greatest Movie Ever Sold, Submarine, I Saw the Devil (which had plenty of buzz at Tiff) and my most anticipated film of 2011, Hobo With a Shotgun.

Here is the full list:

Following yesterday's announcement of the U.S. and World Cinema Dramatic and Documentary Competitions, the Sundance Film Festival has unveiled the second part of their lineup, which includes the more starry-eyed Premieres section, the best-of-fests Spotlight section, the sure-to-be-culty Park City at Midnight section, the low-budget Next section, and the more experimental New Frontier section (an extension of New Frontier Program, the collection of video art installations which has already been noted here for playing James Franco's dramatic multimedia examination of "Three's Company.")

In addition to the return of filmmakers like "Chuck & Buck"'s Miguel Arteta, "Clockwatchers" director Jill Sprecher, Kevin Smith and "The Station Agent"'s Thomas McCarthy to Park City, the festival will also welcome less frequent or first-time Sundance attendees such as Hollywood types Al Pacino ("Son of No One") and Tobey Maguire ("The Details") and mumblecore alums Joe Swanberg ("Uncle Kent," which announced it's been »

Sundance Film Festival 2011 Out-Of-Competition Lineup Announced (John Akomfrah’s “The Nine Muses” Made The Cut)

2 December 2010 12:27 PM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Well, yesterday, we saw the full list of films in-competition; today, we get to see those titles that have been selected for Sundance 2011′s out-of-competition lineup.

And as I said with yesterday’s post, I’ll be going over the complete list, highlighting titles that need to be, taking into consideration this blog’s specific interests. The only title that immediately stands out is Brit John Akomfrah’s The Nine Muses, which MsWOO positively reviewed, after seeing it at the London Film Festival in October. Read her review Here.

But look for future posts profiling any other titles I deem worthy. I’ve applied for press credentials to attend next year’s festival. I won’t know until the 23rd of this month, whether I’ve been granted press access or not. If I am, I will attend the festival; and if I’m not, well, I probably won’t. »

James Cameron May Direct Angelina Jolie As Cleopatra

14 October 2010 3:24 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Back in July, Angelina Jolie's name was being thrown around for a biopic about Elizabeth Taylor, who famously played Cleopatra in the 1963 film about the Egyptian queen. While we haven't heard anything about the project since, it now appears that Jolie is skipping the Taylor approach and may do so with James Cameron behind the lens. Deadline reports that James Cameron and Sony are currently discussing the possibility of making a new film about Cleopatra, based on the book by Stacy Schiff. Jolie is already attached to the project while Brian Helgeland, who won the Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar for L.A. Confidential, is writing the script. The article does put in the caveat that while they're seriously considering having Cameron come on, there's no "certainty that it will happen." If they truly have to make another Cleopatra movie (news flash: they don't), I'm not sure they could do »

Leonardo DiCaprio Cast In Clint Eastwood's Hoover Bio-Pic

17 June 2010 2:57 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Very few actors have worked with the caliber of directors that Leonardo DiCaprio has. From the age of 21 until now, the actor has worked with Sam Raimi, James Cameron, Ridley Scott, Danny Boyle, Steven Spielberg, Sam Mendes and Christopher Nolan, not to mention the fact that he has been Martin Scorsese's actor-of-choice for the past eight years. Now he gets to add yet another Academy Award winning director to his resume: Clint Eastwood. Deadline is reporting that DiCaprio has officially signed on to play former FBI director J. Edgar Hoover in an untitled biopic for Eastwood. Scripted by Dustin Lance Black, who won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay in 2009, the film is scheduled to go into production later this year for Warner Bros. While I understand that a biopic of Hoover will likely contain many great stories - such as the formation of the FBI and busting crime »

“Reds” by Warren Beatty: Foote In Film

15 April 2010 9:35 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By John H. Foote

Reds (1981) – Directed by Warren Beatty (****)

With the release of the new Peter Biskind book Star, a biography and study of actor-director-producer-writer Warren Beatty, I took a look at Reds (1981) the other night, his seminal study of John Reed and the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution, as seen through the eyes of Reed who wrote the first great journalistic book Ten Days That Shook the World. That book, more than any other of its time, created the template for all future current event reportage books, with its urgent, passionate writing about a world changing before Reed’s very eyes.

Long a passion project of Beatty’s since visiting Russia in the sixties, he was never comfortable being a movie star, wanting instead to be taken seriously as an artist, producing the brilliant work Bonnie and Clyde (1967) and dabbling in direction for the first time with Heaven Can Wait (1978) a remake »

The 67th Annual Golden Globe Award winners. 'Avatar' takes best director and drama.

17 January 2010 3:02 PM, PST | Upcoming-Movies.com | See recent Upcoming-Movies.com news »

James Cameron took home the Best Director and Best Drama awards in the Hfpa's 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards. Jason Reitman won Best Screenplay for his "Up in the Air" George Clooney starrer. Jeff Bridges and Robert Downey Jr. enjoyed wins as Best Actors in "Crazy Heart" and "Sherlock Holmes" and Meryl Streep and Sandra Bullock won for "Julie and Julia" and "The Blind Spot." One I cannot agree with is "The Hangover," a vastly overrated comedy which took home a Best Comedy kudo. TV drama-wise, Michael C. Hall won for his work on "Dexter" and "Grey Gardens" took home two awards - one for Best Mini-Series or Motion Pictures Made for Television and another for Drew Barrymore's efforts. As announced, here is the full list with winners noted in black. »
