Terrence Malick and the Tao of the Sojourning Soul, Part 1: Spiritual Voices

6 hours ago | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Sometimes I imagine that it is 1983 and Terrence Malick is somewhere in Paris, living a quiet, normal life. As he walks to one of his favorite cafes, he catches a glimpse of Gilles Deleuzes’ Cinéma 1: L’image-mouvemont in a bookstore window. Naturally, he’s curious. In an intellectual era dominated by Theory, the only other book of philosophy that had taken up cinema as a way to do philosophy was The World Viewed, written by his friend and one time academic advisor Stanley Cavell. I imagine that Malick seeks out Deleuze, who is lecturing at the University of Paris VIII. Two years later, he buys a copy of Deleuze’s Cinéma 2: L’image-temps. Deleuze confirmed what Malick has long suspected, but either forgotten or was distracted from in the hedonistic atmosphere of 1970s L. A. chronicled by Peter Biskind in Easy Riders, Raging Bulls—cinema “thinks” philosophically. Other »

Zurich Film Festival to spotlight Iran

29 July 2015 5:59 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Festival to highlight features and docs from the new generation of Iranian filmmakers.

The 11th Zurich Film Festival (Sept 24 - Oct 4) has named Iran as the guest country in its New World View section.

The programme will contain around 12 new features and documentaries from the latest generation of Iranian filmmakers.

The New World View section will also include an Iranian short film block. Further details regarding the programme have yet to be announced.

Iran has garnered international attention through the work of auteurs including Palme d’Or winner Abbas Kiarostami (Taste of Cherry), Oscar-winner Asghar Farhadi (A Separation) and Jafar Panahi, who won the Golden Bear at this year’s Berlinale with Taxi.

Taking the lead from those masters - and in spite of strict state controls and censorship - the latest generation of Iranian filmmakers tackle taboos in their current society. »

With ‘The Land Before Time,’ James Horner illustrated death for adults and children alike

7 July 2015 2:38 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Two weeks ago, composer James Horner died after his private plane crashed in Southern California. He was 61, two decades younger than John Wiliams but with a resume not unlike the Maestro’s. A composer whose understated presence made his career more legend than legendary, Horner possessed an under-the-radar kind of genius that, short of two Oscar wins, seemed obvious only in hindsight. Braveheart, Glory, Titanic, Field of Dreams, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, and The New World are all stunning examples of strong thematic composition, yet even Horner’s smaller ventures — in scores for Wolfen, Cocoon, or Battle Beyond the Stars — raised genre fare above B-movie status.

Horner could make the most out of the smallest things; he often had to, especially if that overnight deadline for Aliens is to be believed. He had deftness with nuance and complexity while always inviting the audience into those ideas, and »

The 25 Best TV Shows Of The 2014/2015 Season

24 June 2015 11:56 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Every year, some clickbait-chasing doofus questions whether TV or film is the superior medium, ignoring that they’re entirely different from each other, good at different things and perfectly able to compliment each other. But what is undeniable is that in recent years, the quality of what we’re seeing on the small screen has become increasingly more exciting and sophisticated.  The idea of TV being a downgrade from cinema has long since dissipated, and barely a week goes by without the announcement or arrival of a television project from an acclaimed talent or featuring A-list stars. Even Woody Allen is getting in on the act. The new world of small screen entertainment means that the traditional TV season is becoming less important, with some of the most popular or acclaimed shows arriving in the once-rerun-heavy summer months.  Read More: 15 Filmmakers At The Forefront Of The TV Revolution But it’s still there, »

Oscar-winning composer James Horner leaves legacy of music after his death

23 June 2015 8:47 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

TitanicField of DreamsAliensThe RocketeerApollo 13BraveheartGloryThe New WorldStar Trek: The Wrath of Kahn.  Jumanji. Avatar. Willow. The Land Before Time.  48 Hrs.  Cocoon.  

The list – and the music - goes on.  And on.  And on. 

Oscar-winning film composer James Horner, who was killed in a plane crash on Monday, was a face you may not recognize, but his music, expertly woven through some of your favourite films, was instantly recognizable and memorable.

A composer with over 150 credits to his name, brought us everything from the music for Titanic’s Oscar-winning tune “My Heart Will Go On” to childhood favourites like An American Tail’s “Somewhere Out There.”  It’s hard to narrow down a such a storied career into a top 5 or top 10 list of film scores because his music touched so many movies and genres.

Braveheart, Aliens, Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan, Apollo 13, Wolfen, Legends Of The Fall, Krull, Battle Beyond The Stars, A Beautiful Mind, Titanic. The list goes on and on.

The prolific Oscar winning composer James Horner has died in a plane crash at the age of 61. (June 22, 2015). Variety confirmed the news Monday evening.

The Callow Way – Why Cannes Still Matters

18 May 2015 3:23 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week Neil Calloway looks at what winning the Palme d’Or can do to your box office…

So we are in the middle of the Cannes Film Festival, and it’s easy to dismiss it as a two-week publicity vehicle for beautiful actresses to get photographed next to middle-aged European film directors on the Croisette, or a time for oligarchs and their trophy wives to entertain fading Hollywood stars on their super yachts. However, the importance of the festival to the film industry cannot be understated.

Cannes is the biggest film industry event of the year; the Oscars comes close but that only lasts one night. It is, in fact, one of the biggest annual events of any kind. As William Goldman points out in Hype and Glory, his entertaining memoir of sitting on the juries for both Cannes and the Miss America Pageant, the World Cup and Olympics are bigger, »

James Horner Says Terrence Malick “Doesn't Know How To Coalesce A Story From Beginning To End”

4 May 2015 6:30 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

James Horner hasn't been shy about his lack of admiration for director Terrence Malick. The composer worked with the filmmaker on "The New World," and by his account, it was an arduous process due to Malick's constant changes, and his inability to get to the core of the film's love story. According to Horner, the editing process was a nightmare, and the final straw was when the composer's work was abandoned altogether (his score was later released on CD). In 2006, the composer explained in lengthy detail his thoughts, not just about working on "The New World," but Malick in general saying, "I never felt so letdown by a filmmaker in my life." And now in 2015, he's again sharing about his less than ideal time on that film.

Twilight's Alex Meraz & David Harbour join David Ayer's Suicide Squad

29 April 2015 3:23 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

There's no word on who he will be playing, but Variety has learned that Alex Meraz has joined the ensemble cast of David Ayer's Suicide Squad. Meraz played werewolf Paul Lahote in the Twilight series, and starred as a warrior in Terrence Malick's The New World.

Production is underway on Suicide Squad, and recently a fan posted a picture of himself with Viola Davis (Amanda Waller) as she was »

‘Walking Dead’ Finale Q&A: Lennie James Talks Morgan’s Return and Season 6

30 March 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler warning: Do not read on unless you’ve seen “The Walking Dead” season five finale, titled “Conquer.”

The biggest surprise of last night’s “The Walking Dead” finale wasn’t who died, but rather who returned. Lennie James’ fan favorite character Morgan, originally introduced in the pilot and central to the exceptional third season episode “Clear,” finally caught up with Rick Grimes’ gang. He fought back a new threat (the villainous wolves, who we’re sure to see more of next season), rescued Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Aaron (Ross Marquand) from almost certain doom, and arrived in Alexandria just in time to see Rick (Andrew Lincoln) put a bullet in world class jerk Pete (Corey Brill). Except the peace-minded Morgan doesn’t know what Pete has done, or what’s going on Alexandria, or what’s happened to Rick since the events of “Clear.”

That sets up a tantalizing conflict for season six, »

'Birdman' cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki joins exclusive club with Oscar win

22 February 2015 7:29 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

By winning the Best Cinematography Oscar for a second year in a row, "Birdman" director of photography Emmanuel Lubezki has joined a truly elite club whose ranks haven't been breached in nearly two decades. Only four other cinematographers have won the prize in two consecutive years. The last time it happened was in 1994 and 1995, when John Toll won for Edward Zwick's "Legends of the Fall" and Mel Gibson's "Braveheart" respectively. Before that you have to go all the way back to the late '40s, when Winton Hoch won in 1948 (Victor Fleming's "Joan of Arc" with Ingrid Bergman) and 1949 (John Ford's western "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon"). Both victories came in the color category, as the Academy awarded prizes separately for black-and-white and color photography from 1939 to 1956. Leon Shamroy also won back-to-back color cinematography Oscars, for Henry King's 1944 Woodrow Wilson biopic "Wilson" and John M. Stahl »

Oscars: Emmanuel Lubezki ('Birdman') wins Best Cinematography for second straight year

22 February 2015 7:25 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

As 28 of our 29 Oscar Experts predicted, Asc guild champ Emmanuel Lubezki won Best Cinematography Sunday night. His work on Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's "Birdman" involved lengthy and complicated "one take" shots throughout the film. -Break- This project brought Lubezki a second straight Academy Award after a win last year for "Gravity." That marked his first Oscar win after five losses for "A Little Princess" (1995), "Sleepy Hollow" (1999), "The New World" (2005), "Children of Men" (2006), and "The Tree of Life" (2011). This film was also predicted by all seven of our Editors, 22 of our Top 24 Users, and 85% of our overall Users. The lone hold-out among our Oscarologists was Mike Cidoni (Associated Press) who backed the bid by rookie nominees Ryszard Lenczewski and Lukasz Zal for "Ida."

Daily | Berlinale 2015 Diary #4

8 February 2015 1:57 PM, PST | Keyframe | See recent Keyframe news »

We'll always have Badlands (1973), Days of Heaven (1978) and The Thin Red Line (1998), undisputed landmarks in American cinema. We may need a bit more time before we can declare the same for The New World (2005) and The Tree of Life (2011), but the former took the #10 spot in Film Comment's 2010 poll of the best films of the first decade of the 21st century and, just last month, the latter landed at #1 in Kevin B. Lee's informal poll, "The Best Films of the Decade So Far (2010-2014)." Now that Terrence Malick's Knight of Cups has premiered in Berlin, we must sadly report that it borders on self-parody.

Berlin: Christian Bale and Natalie Portman on Working with Terrence Malick

8 February 2015 11:50 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Berlin — At the press conference for Terrence Malick’s Berlinale competition title “Knight of Cups,” Christian Bale and Natalie Portman spoke about working with the auteur.

“The nice and very interesting thing in Terry’s approach was that he didn’t tell us what [the film] was about,” Bale said, adding that he had worked with Malick 10 years before on “The New World.”

“He really just gave me the character description; we worked on the character a great deal, talking about the backstory and who he was. And then he would… he liked to call it ‘torpedoing’ us with different actors and non-actors throughout production, and just get a very real response based on knowledge of the character.”

Bale’s character, Rick, is “someone whose dreams and desires have been fulfilled, but who feels a great void in himself,” Bale said. “He finds himself on a journey to look for something, but »

Berlin Film Review: ‘Knight of Cups’

8 February 2015 10:15 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

You go into a Terrence Malick movie expecting a gorgeous collage of sound and image, but not necessarily the sight of a neon-lit strip club, a Caesars Palace pool party, or a fashion shoot where a model is told to pose like “a dirty f—ing housewife.” In other words, there’s something at once vividly familiar and strikingly different about “Knight of Cups,” a feverish plunge into the toxic cloud of decadence swirling around a Los Angeles screenwriter gone to seed. Having made contemporary American life seem both recognizable and alien in “To the Wonder,” Malick now extends that film’s tender romantic ballet into a corrosive critique of Hollywood hedonism — a poisoned valentine to the industry by way of a Fellini-esque bacchanal. Those who have had their fill of the director’s impressionistic musings will find his seventh feature as empty as the lifestyle it puts on display; for the rest of us, »

Berlin: Christian Bale and Natalie Portman on Making 'Knight of Cups' With Terrence Malick

8 February 2015 8:44 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

To the surprise of no one, Terrence Malick was a no-show at today's Berlinale press conference for his seventh feature, "Knight of Cups," following the film's first screening. Thankfully Christian Bale and Natalie Portman were on hand to answer questions about the hypnotic and experimental film. In "Knight of Cups," Bale plays a wayward Hollywood player struggling to find meaning in his life. Portman plays one of his many love interests in the film. Below are the top highlights from their conversation earlier today. Christian Bale didn't know what "Knight of Cups" was about during filming."The nice and very interesting thing in Terry's approach was that he didn't tell us what it was about," Bale said. "For me, I worked with Terry ten years back on ‘The New World.' We talked about different ideas. [‘Knight of Cups'] was something he had gestating for a long time; he really just gave me the character description. »

Berlin: Lena Dunham to Co-Star with Diane Kruger, Norman Reedus in ‘Sky’ (Exclusive)

5 February 2015 10:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lena Dunham, Diane Kruger, Norman Reedus and Gilles Lellouche will star in “Sky,” a thriller-cum-road-movie that unfolds across the U.S. from French helmer Fabienne Berthaud (“Lily Sometimes”).

The English-language pic is produced by Bertrand Faivre’s Le Bureau, based in Paris, with Germany’s Pandora.

The Bureau Sales, the Bureau’s recently launched unit spearheaded by Rym Hachimi and Emmanuelle Le Courtois, will begin shopping the project in Berlin.

Kruger stars as Romy, who goes with her husband (Lellouche) on a trip to California and accidentally kills him during a violent fight. She flees the scene and embarks on a life-changing solo trip across California and Nevada.

“As with Fabienne Berthaud’s previous films, ‘Sky’ is character-driven and has multiple layers: It’s not just a thriller, it’s also a film about this woman emancipating herself,” said Le Courtois, who recently joined the Bureau Sales after working at »

The Definitive Movies of 1995

30 January 2015 8:01 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The 1990′s introduced the world to Quentin Tarantino, saw the creation of the Nc-17 rating, and began the slow call toward fully computer animated films. It began the slow (still slow) movement toward a more diverse industry, with the first African-American director earning an Oscar nomination (John Singleton for “Boyz in the Hood”). And the year after one of the greatest years in the history of film, 1995 came plodding along, trying to keep up. So, for the first definitive list of 2015, we are going to look back 20 years at a year that, at first glance, doesn’t look so hot. It’s ripe with flops, but it’s also full of debuts, trailblazing beginnings, and better films than it gets credit for. But, the caveat still stands: this is not a “best of” list. In fact, there are a lot of bad movies on this list. But, they are movies that made a cultural impact, »

The Walking Dead Season 5 Midseason Key Art Hits the Road

8 January 2015 9:31 AM, PST | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

AMC is gearing up for the return of The Walking Dead with new key art that features Rick Grimes and his ever-evolving group on the move through the streets of Georgia.

The Walking Dead Season 5 midseason key art, or Season 5b as it is also referred, also includes Abraham's map to DC in the foreground with his message to Rick written in ink, "The New World's Gonna Need Rick Grimes." Spoilers ahead: this map and message was also seen in the Season 5 midseason finale post-credits sequence where Morgan arrives at the church and discovers it.

Missing from The Walking Dead moving forward into the back half of Season 5 will be Beth. She was of course murdered during the prisoner trade-off in the midseason finale and her void will be felt throughout Rick's group as they continue to move, stay alive, and find new purpose in their lives without the »
