Nick Cave and Warren Ellis’ ‘Hell or High Water’ Score: Listen to Two Excerpts from the Stirring Ost

13 July 2016 3:52 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Nick Cave and Warren Ellis’ “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford” soundtrack is among the best, most frequently co-opted film scores of the last decade, and news of further collaboration between the two tends to be welcome among cinephiles. Their latest is David Mackenzie’s “Hell or High Water,” which premiered at Cannes in May ahead of its theatrical release next month. Pitchfork has excerpts from two songs.

Comancheria” and “Mama’s Room” are the tunes in question, both of them readily identifiable as the work of the Bad Seeds bandmates. Of their work, Mackenzie told Pitchfork that “What I love about Nick and Warren’s film music is that it’s epic and expansive without being grandiose. For me as a filmmaker this hits »

[Review] Free State of Jones

23 June 2016 6:58 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

In cinema, differentiating it from most other mediums, one has the ability to give life to drama: time to flesh out characters, fill an unfolding story with intricate details, and capture it in a way that is enthralling to the eyes. Free State of Jones, written and directed by Gary Ross, clearly has a fascinating historical figure at its center and a story that is unlike a multitude of other Civil War era dramas, yet it too often feels (quite literally, in some cases) that we’re retreading the bullet-point notes from a fourth-grade homework assignment rather than experiencing an emotionally rousing, visually distinct journey.

From the get-go, it’s quite easy to tell what attracted the The Hunger Games and Pleasantville director to the material in the first place. In the early-to-mid-1860s, Newton Knight broke free from the Confederate army to form his own company of “deserters,” women, »

Nick Cave-Andrew Dominik ready music film 'One More Time With Feeling'

3 June 2016 9:08 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Feature will include the first chance to hear songs from upcoming Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds album.

Musician Nick Cave has teamed with director Andrew Dominik for One More Time With Feeling, a feature that will include the first opportunity anyone will have to hear songs from Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds 16th studio album, Skeleton Tree.

The film will be distributed to more than 650 cinemas around the world by Picturehouse Entertainment on September 8, prior to the release of the album the following day.

Originally a performance based concept, One More Time With Feeling will explore the writing and recording of the album and delve into its tragic backdrop (Cave’s 15-year-old son, Arthur, died in July 2015 after falling from a cliff).

Interwoven throughout the Bad Seeds’ filmed performance of the new album are interviews and footage shot by Dominik, accompanied by Cave’s narration.

Andrew Dominik Returning With Nick Cave Feature Film ‘One More Time With Feeling’

2 June 2016 6:49 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It was just last week we were wondering what was next in store for The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford director Andrew Dominik, with rumors that his long-gestating Blonde would finally be going forward thanks to Netflix. It looks like we’ll get a film from him much sooner than expected, as he reunited with his Jesse James composer Nick Cave for a feature on the making of their new album, Skeleton Tree.

Ahead of a September 9th release of Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds’ sixteenth studio LP, Dominik’s film One More Time With Feeling will screen in theaters worldwide the prior evening, on September 8th. Shot in both black-and-white and color, as well as 3D and 2D, see details on the “stark, fragile, and raw” film below.

Originally a performance based concept, One More Time With Feeling evolved into something much more significant as »

Andrew Dominik’s 10 Favorite Films

27 May 2016 11:40 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Across his three features this century, Andrew Dominik has explored masculine ideals (and the lack thereof) with an uncompromising vision. While earning the most acclaim for his stunning western The Assassination of Jesse James By the Coward Robert Ford, his follow-up Killing Them Softly is also distinctive in its laser-focused fury, getting the impressive distinction of an “F” CinemaScore to cement it as something truly special. His long-gestating next feature, Blonde, is hopefully still happening (the last we heard, Netflix may back it and shooting could begin as early as this year), but as we wait for confirmation, today we’re looking at his favorite films of all-time.

Courtesy of his Sight & Sound ballot, it’s a primarily American-focused line-up with classics from Francis Ford Coppola, Martin Scorsese, Billy Wilder, and David Lynch (x2). Perhaps most interesting is his favorite Alfred Hitchcock film, one of the man’s last five features: Marnie, »

13 May 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The Enigmatic Terrence Malick

8 May 2016 6:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the UK release of Knight of Cups this weekend, Neil Calloway looks at a unique directing talent…

Terrence Malick has directed seven films since his debut with Badlands in 1973. That might not seem like many, but when you factor in the fact that between the release of Days of Heaven in 1978 and The Thin Red Line in 1998 he didn’t make a single film, he’s got quite an impressive work rate.

Despite so few films being made, his influence on other film-makers is huge. When Malick’s The Tree of Life was released, Christopher Nolan spoke of his influence on his own films. While that’s hard to see, it’s undoubtedly true that Malick’s films has influenced many writers and directors. True Romance is Tarantino’s homage to Badlands, David Gordon Green’s work shows his influence. Paul Thomas Anderson’s There Will Be Blood contains very Malickian scenes, »

8 Movies With Ridiculously Long Titles

22 April 2016 7:13 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 Some titles just grab your attention and these long-winded, verbose movie titles are certainly unique. Here are 9 movie titles that are hard to say in one breath.

Honorable Mention: “The Fable of the Kid Who Shifted His Ideals to Golf and Finally Became a Baseball Fan and Took the Only Known Cure” (1916)—23 words

 This one actually has the longest movie title ever written, but since it’s just a short rather than a full-length film, it doesn’t count. I’m not clear on what the plot of this was but it’s a short silent comedy about baseball.

 1.“The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford” (2007)—10 Words

 This title pretty much sums up the whole movie. If you watch this, you will not be surprised by what happens to Jesse and who kills him. Actually, it’s a pretty good movie and has the best performance that Casey Affleck ever did. »

The 25 most underrated film scores of the 2000s

Diverse, awe-inspiring and memorable treasures that have sadly fallen off the radar

The noughties were a tough decade for film music fans. Not only was there the unprecedented loss of four great masters in the form of Jerry Goldsmith, Elmer Bernstein, Michael Kamen and Basil Poledouris; the nature of the industry itself began to go through some seismic changes, not all of them for the better.

With the art of film scoring becoming ever more processed, driven increasingly by ghost writers, electronic augmentation and temp tracks, prospects looked bleak. However, this shouldn’t shield the fact that there were some blindingly brilliant scores composed during this period. Here’s but a small sampling of them.

When it came to the sound of his Oscar-winning crime thriller, director Martin Scorsese hit on the inspired notion of having composer Howard Shore base it around a tango, »

Interview: Roger Deakins Talks 'Sicario,' Partnership With Denis Villeneuve, 'Blade Runner 2,' Digital Vs. Film & More

9 February 2016 12:23 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s the burden on everyone else to lament that Roger Deakins has yet to score an Oscar from his 13 nominations. Speaking with the famed cinematographer himself, it’s clear he’s honed in on the process and the process only; this year’s nomination is for Denis Villeneuve’s “Sicario,” yet he’s already lensed the Coen Brothers’ “Hail, Caesar!” and started prep on “Blade Runner 2” (again with Villeneuve). He’s also uniquely generous in sharing that process, as one of the few DPs to moderate an online forum with discussions and advice on lighting, gear, and narrative techniques. From his early career in documentaries to shooting diverse, high-profile projects like “Skyfall,” “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford,” and “A Serious Man,” Deakins has fostered a number of creative partnerships while embracing the numerous shifts in technology. A collaborator of the Coens since “Barton Fink, »

'Manchester by the Sea': The Story Behind Sundance 2016's Best Movie

If you've seen writer-director Kenneth Lonergan's work before — the handful of films and half-dozen one-acts and plays he's penned to date — you understand why he's racked up numerous theater awards, Oscar nods and a Pulitzer nomination. And if you're lucky enough to meet Lonergan, you'll understand where that singular voice comes from. Sitting in a crowded Sundance Film Festival lodge off of Main Street, the shaggy, bespectacled 53-year-old director of You Can Count on Me and Margaret acts like a Kenneth Lonergan character.acts like a Kenneth Lonergan character. »

Oscars 2017: Sundance Launches Strong Contenders Like ‘Birth of a Nation,’ ‘Weiner’

31 January 2016 9:31 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It may seem nuts to start handicapping next year’s Oscars race before this year’s ceremony has even aired, but Sundance has proven that it’s now a launching pad for awards season contenders.

After January 2014’s debut of “Boyhood” and January 2015’s premiere of “Brooklyn” (both at the Eccles Theater), Sundance may have doubled up and unveiled two best picture nominees in 2016. Those would be “Manchester By the Sea” and “The Birth of a Nation.”

Let’s start with the second title. Nate Parker’s retelling of the 1831 slave revolt led by Nat Turner is a one-man tour-de-force: starring Parker, directed by Parker, produced by Parker and written by the actor best known until now as the star of “Beyond the Lights.” “The Birth of a Nation” will change that. Not only did the historical epic receive the most prolonged standing ovation at this year’s Sundance, it »

[Sundance Review] Manchester By the Sea

24 January 2016 8:37 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With his unassuming, quietly affecting films leaving such a distinctly indelible impact long after the credits roll, we may only have three films from Kenneth Lonergan across sixteen years, but they provide a lifetime’s worth of human experience. His latest, Manchester By the Sea, finds him in the quaint northeastern Massachusetts town as he immaculately constructs a layered, non-linear exploration of the ripple effects of loss and grief.

Appearing in nearly every scene of the drama is Casey Affleck as Lee Chandler, living out his lonely life in Boston working as a handyman for a group of four apartment buildings. A phone call from his hometown informs him that his brother Joe’s (Kyle Chandler) long-diagnosed congestive heart failure finally caught up with him. Passing away before Lee makes it home, he must now deal with the aftermath of his brother’s death and the ocean of grief that it brings, »
