Request: Oscar Nominated Performances of the Aughts, Ranked

26 August 2016 5:21 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

by Nathaniel R

This list was requested by Carlos recently in the comments. Perhaps in light of the Oscar Nominated Performances ranked of the past six years... so why not. It's a perfect weekend activity and will help you get in the mood for the possibly turbulent Oscar season ahead. So let's do this crazy...

All The Oscar Nominated Performances Ranked (2000-2009)

First a terrible confession for one such as I: Two Oscar nominated performances in the Aughts slipped right past my movie devouring eyeballs (the shame. the shame.) I never got around to Tommy Lee Jones In the Valley of Elah or Cooler Alec Baldwin. I accept your judgment and will choose my favorite of whatever punishments are recommended.

So let's rank the whole other 198 lot of 'em, with the caveats that this is silly (apples & oranges) and had you asked me on a different day the order might »

‘Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk’ from Ang Lee Is a Game Changer

26 August 2016 6:27 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For director Ang Lee, “Life of Pi” was only the beginning in pushing cinematic boundaries.

The three-time Oscar winner (“Life of Pi,” “Brokeback Mountain,” “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”) is back four years later with the harrowing drama about war and remembrance: “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk,” which assaults the viewer with immersive, hyper-real battle footage unlike anything ever depicted on screen, shot by Oscar winner John Toll (“Braveheart”) for the first time at 4K 3D 120 fps.

Billy Lynn’s” will debut October 14th at the New York Film Festival in all its visual glory at the AMC Lincoln Square. They will have to convert a screen in order to show it at 120 in 3D. Christie provided a full sneak peek at Nab with its dual projector laser system, but it’s unconfirmed if they will perform the same upgrade for New York.

Pedro Almodóvar on the Version of ‘Brokeback Mountain’ He Wanted to Direct: ‘More Sex, More Sex’

23 August 2016 3:58 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Pedro Almodóvar will soon be back in theaters with “Julieta,” which premiered at Cannes this year. The Oscar-winning luminary of Spanish cinema has other projects on his mind, he explains on the latest edition of the Empire podcast, including one that will never see the light of day: “Brokeback Mountain,” which he was originally offered the chance to direct before Ang Lee took over the reins instead.

Read More: Pedro Almodóvar Reveals Why He Turned Down ‘Brokeback Mountain

“More sex, more sex” is how Almodóvar describes his take on the material, which is adapted from Annie Proulx’s short story of the same name. “And it’s not gratuitous,” he quickly clarifies. “The Annie Proulx is about a physical relation, an animal relation, so sex is necessary because it is the body of the story.” Almodóvar doesn’t think he could have made it the way he wanted to in Hollywood, »

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

23 August 2016 12:21 PM, PDT | 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

23 August 2016 8:44 AM, PDT | 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.

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, »

The 21st Century’s 100 Greatest Films, According to Critics

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 »

Ang Lee’s ‘Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk’ Premiering at New York Film Festival

22 August 2016 9:38 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ang Lee’s “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk” will debut at this year’s New York Film Festival.

The film is expected to be a major Oscar contender given that Lee has scored two previous Academy Awards for “Brokeback Mountain” and “Life of Pi,” and the film grapples with such weighty topics as war and the home front. But it’s also drawing attention because of its technological innovations. “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk” is the first full-length narrative film shot in 4K and native 3D at an accelerated rate of 120 frames-per-second. The idea is that the image will be crisper and more life-like. In an interview with Variety last April, Lee said he was eager to push the limits of cinema.

“Our head is still in the film world,” he said. “Not to put down film in the past, because it’s brilliant, I love it. But if we do digital, »

The Fovc Guide To The Drive-in Movie Part 3: Drive-in Movie Movies

21 August 2016 1:30 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

11 Drive-in Movie Movies (in alphabetical order):

Blue Thunder (1983) One key sequence in this thriller about a high-tech urban surveillance helicopter is staged (during the daylight hours) at the Pickwick Drive-in in Burbank, California, which was razed in 1990. The Pickwick, due to its proximity to the local movie studios, hosted many movie premieres, most famously that of Blazing Saddles in 1974, for which everyone in attendance was on horseback.

Brokeback Mountain (2005) In one scene after his return from Brokeback Mountain, Ennis (Heath Ledger) takes his wife Alma (Michelle Williams) on a date to a drive-in movie theater, which is lovingly (if briefly) recreated in the film. And it’s a very effective moment of movie magic too—the scene wasn’t filmed at a drive-in at all, but instead a converted softball field in Alberta, Canada.

Cars (2006) During the end credits, the cars are shown at the drive-in cinema enjoying parodies »

Indignation – Review

12 August 2016 6:03 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Indignation is indeed one theme in the movie Indignation, based on Phillip Roth’s 2008 novel of the same name, along with death, life, and the “what if” of choices made. Set in 1951, young college freshman Marcus Messner (Logan Lerman) is filled with indignation on several levels, even before coming to Winesburg College in Ohio from his working-class home in Newark, New Jersey. The Korean War, which Marcus avoids with his college deferment, is a looming presence throughout the story.

Indignation perfectly captures both the look and the feel of  a repressive, restrictive, conformist 1950s America. It was a buttoned-down time of tightly controlled emotions, with World War II still in the near past, Cold War commie-hunting in full swing and women safely back in traditional roles, and the youth culture and freethinking of the 1960s still in the future. .

The film beautiful recreates the look of the period, from costumes »

David Linde Talks About His Career, China, the Future of Film at Locarno

5 August 2016 8:10 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Locarno, Switzerland — When Participant Media CEO David Linde began his career, the international market was “almost an afterthought to the American market,” he said.

Some 32 years later, Linde was at Switzerland’s Locarno Festival on Thursday night to receive the Locarno Festival’s independent producer Raimundo Rezzonico Prize for a career which has been distinguished by his affinity and passion for international, not only its markets but the production of some of its greatest filmmaking voices.

Some examples: Good Machine Intl., which Linde launched with James Schamus and Ted Hope in 1997, produced Ang Lee’s “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon,” still the highest grossing foreign-language film in the U.S. Alfonso Cuaron’s “Y tu mama también” was picked up by Linde for most of international when at Gmi and was the first film to be marketed under its Uncensored Cinema label.

Colin Trevorrow’s ‘Book of Henry’ Pushed Back to 2017 (Exclusive)

2 August 2016 2:13 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Focus Features is pushing “The Book of Henry” into 2017.

That means that the Colin Trevorrow drama won’t be in the hunt for Oscars … at least not this year. “The Book of Henry” centers on a single mother raising a child prodigy. It was originally slated to debut in limited release on Sept. 16, 2016, before going wide on Sept. 30. The new plan is for “The Book of Henry” to bow on June 16, 2017, in limited release, then gradually expand through the rest of the month into the July 4th holiday. Its new release date coincides with the debuts of “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” and “Cars 3,” but it’s a time period with little in the way of indie dramas.

The film has been testing well, according to insiders, and the hope is that the new date will give it more room to find its audience. The summer is a bit of a wasteland for adult-oriented fare, »

‘Indignation’ Director James Schamus: Film Is Dead, And That’s Okay

1 August 2016 10:08 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“Being dead is not the same thing as not existing — many things exist that are dead. Indeed, I would argue that many of the greatest things that exist are dead and this is not necessarily a bad thing.” — James Schamus

In November of 2014, a little more than a year after he had been fired from his long-time job as the CEO of Focus Features, James Schamus was invited to the German Film Academy to give a speech about the future of cinema. Naturally, the underlying assumption of the event was that it had one.

The talk began on a routine note, as Schamus name-checked Theodor Adorno, bridged the gap between George Méliès and Christopher Nolan, and pushed through the obligatory references to the rise of Netflix and the fall of DVD. And then, reaching the fifth point of a lecture that he had split into 23 discrete fragments, Schamus reframed the conversation, »

Arthouse Audit: ‘Indigination’ Leads Strong Openers

31 July 2016 10:36 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Three Sundance premieres are boosting the late summer specialty box office as “Indignation” (Roadside Attractions), “Equity” (Sony Pictures Classics) and “Gleason” (Amazon/Open Road) lead openers. Several more including Woody Allen’s “Café Society” (Amazon/Lionsgate) are holding well with positive results beyond just initial dates.

Several documentaries getting play continue to impress, and two more beyond “Gleason” scored initial New York attention: “Hieronymus Bosch: Touched by the Devil” (Kino Lorber) and “Miss Sharon Jones!” (Starz).

Opening

Indignation” (Roadside Attractions) – Metacritic: 83; Festivals include: Sundance, Berlin, San Francisco, Seattle 2016

$89,072 in 4 theaters; PTA: $22,268

After a long career as a producer-screenwriter (Ang Lee’s”Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” and “Brokeback Mountain”) and distributor (Focus Features before Universal revamped the company), James Schamus directed his adaptation of Philip Roth’s early 1950s Oberlin-set story of a Jewish working class kid trying to adapt. After his earlier run of success, the reaction to his debut is gratifying. »

‘Indignation’ Stars Logan Lerman And Sarah Gadon On Philip Roth, Sylvia Plath And The Perils Of Oral Sex

29 July 2016 9:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Indignation” director James Schamus certainly has confidence in his cast.

Sarah Gadon was my first call,” Schamus told IndieWire. “I knew that she had unbelievable technical ability, but also that’s super vulnerable and capable of just letting it out. She can fly. And Logan Lerman can, I believe, go on to have one of the great careers.”

If any first-time filmmaker knows about great careers, it’s James Schamus. The former CEO of Focus Features (which, during his leadership, released modern classics like “Lost in Translation” and “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”), the co-writer on many of Ang Lee’s most beloved movies (such as “Brokeback Mountain”) and a professor at Columbia University’s film program for more than 25 years, Schamus knows what raw ingredients are required to make a great movie.

Lgbtq Filmmakers Grapple With The Responsibility Of Eulogizing Orlando Nightclub Shooting

29 July 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Buoyed by the Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage, things looked really good for Lgbtq people at the start of 2016. Then came the Orlando massacre, and with it the reminder that queer people were not safe, not even within the comforts provided by its culture.

That was only six weeks ago, but it seems longer. Orlando has fallen out of the news cycle — for the media, too many fresher tragedies take precedence. There’s the police murders of black men, an assassin’s murders of police and the public in Dallas, the Nice attacks, and even another Florida nightclub shooting, this one in Fort Myers. And for the public, the crises converge. There were signs remembering Orlando at Black Lives Matter rallies, and the Lgbtq community responded to Orlando with anti-gun rallies and messages of support for Muslims.

This puts Lgbtq culture in a familiar position: If the threats to »
