Dekalog (Krzysztof Kieślowski)

Despite passing away at the all-too-young age of 54, Krzysztof Kieślowski invoked a sense of humanity that even today’s greatest directors might need a lifetime to achieve. What would be his defining masterwork (if he didn’t make a number of films that could also easily fall under the definition), the 10-part Dekalog, has been restored thanks to Janus Films and is now available on The Criterion Collection after touring the country. Also including interviews with those involved and more, »

‘Hell or High Water’ Music Video: Nick Cave and Warren Ellis Share ‘Comancheria’ Clip

23 September 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Last year Nick Cave and Warren Ellis reunited to score David Mackenzie’s “Hell or High Water,” which premiered at Cannes in May ahead of its theatrical release. The duo released the official soundtrack to the critically acclaimed film this past August, and have now shared the music video for the song “Comancheria.”

The two-minute clip doesn’t feature the artists, instead we are shown slow-moving shots from the movie starring Chris Pine and Ben Foster.

Hell or High Water,” which was previously titled “Comancheria,” follows two brothers who team up to rob a bank to save their family’s farm. Jeff Bridges plays an “almost retired” Texas ranger in pursuit of the crime doers.

Cave and Ellis have previously worked together on the soundtracks to the 2005 film “The Proposition” and 2007’s “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford »

The Magnificent Seven – Review

22 September 2016 10:16 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

There’s the saying that they don’t make them like they used to. Often this is referred to classic styles of storytelling. The western is one of the oldest film genres, practically synonymous with names like John Ford, John Wayne, and Clint Eastwood. Over the past decade there have been filmmakers that have saddled the genre and kicked a modern twist into it. Films like Slow West, The The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford, and Meek’S Cutoff have reflected more of the struggles – both internal and external – of life on the American frontier.

However, The Magnificent Seven (2016) falls more in line with traditional westerns than the modern; it harkens back to the “us vs. them” dynamic. There’s a classic approach to this remake of the 1960 film that shows Antoine Fuqua understands that sometimes you don’t need to mess around too much with a good thing. »

5 Fun, Action-Packed Westerns To See Before The Magnificent Seven

22 September 2016 12:28 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Gotta love a good old-fashioned Western. It’s a genre that’s been an American staple for decades. The image of the lone gunslinger is one that’s inspired countless novels, films, comics, and TV shows — and it’s one that’s bound to continue to do so for countless years. Though while as kids the genre may have been synonymous with fun adventure, the reality is that the majority of these flicks are slow, meditative character studies.

That’s all well and good, but I’m gonna chuck every one of those movies out the window today. You won’t find me talking about The Assassination of Jesse James, Once Upon A Time In The West, or The Unforgiven here. Granted, I acknowledge the quality of those films, but today, I wanted to highlight a handful of flicks that may be more in line with what we’ll be »

Blood Simple (Joel and Ethan Coen)

For as accomplished as Joel and Ethan Coen’s debut Blood Simple comes across as to a viewer, like any director, they can’t help but recognize their flaws. That’s not to say their newly restored debut, now available on The Criterion Collection, doesn’t look and sound gorgeous — every bead of sweat dripping down M.

Doc Corner: Nick Cave and The Beatles Show Mixed Musical Results

20 September 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Thankfully for us, Nick Cave is not a musician who is easily distilled into a formula blueprint. He isn’t an artist who is easy to pigeonhole and that means anybody who attempts to make a film about him is forced to think outside of the box. Consider 20,000 Days on Earth in which Cave celebrated his 20,000th day of living by driving around with friends like Kylie Minogue and Ray Winstone. That film, partly fictionalized, was only two years ago so if it feels somewhat excessive to have another Nick Cave documentary so soon then the circumstances around Cave’s life since then mean a lot has changed since his 20,000th day on Earth that has dramatically altered him.

One More Time with Feeling is directed by Cave’s friend Andrew Dominik who Cave had worked with on The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. Like that film, »

Casey Affleck Set To Direct Light Of My Life

20 September 2016 3:29 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been six years since Casey Affleck attempted to fool the world with I’m Still Here – the infamous mockumentary in which Joaquin Phoenix retired from acting to become a rap artist. Since then, he has developed a number of potential new projects to helm, but Light Of My Life is seemingly the first to reach the point of becoming a real movie.

Being so early in the process, there are few details to be found on the project. What is known is that Affleck will be directing from his own script, and will also star as a father trapped in the woods with his young daughter in a ‘post-pandemic’ kind of situation. This makes Light Of My Life more of a survival movie, but with an interesting pedigree.

While, in terms of dramatic performances, Affleck certainly does seem to favour narratives of the more bleak persuasion (The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford »

De Palma (Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow)

Earlier this year, Kent Jones’ Hitchcock /Truffaut — a documentary on the famous interview sessions between the two directors — boasted perhaps the most chaotic, dignity-threatening queue of any film screened at Cannes. There is a craving for this sort of thing among cinephiles it seems and it’s easy to see why. Directors just seem to open up much more when speaking to one of their own kind. Brian De Palma, the subject of this fine documentary, »

Nick Cave Releases ‘I Need You’ Video From ‘One More Time With Feeling’ Documentary — Watch

9 September 2016 2:42 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds released their new album “Skeleton Tree” last night, and along with it an emotional black and white video for “I Need You.”

The King of Darkness is no stranger to the emotionally intense, and the album was hailed by The Guardian as “a masterpiece of love and devastation.” The video comes from the 3D film “One More Time With Feeling,” from director Andrew Dominik (“The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford”).

Venice 2016 Review: Andrew Dominik's Once More With Feeling Is a Blossoming Bud of Pain

6 September 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

If 20,000 Days on Earth is a film you watch to get high, then Once More with Feeling is very much a downer. That’s because it deals with the deeply painful loss Nick Cave experienced after the death of his son Arthur, and how this fuelled his latest album Skeleton Tree. But even if the two sides of Nick that we see in these documentaries are as different as night and day, that’s not to say that the Cave effect is any less mesmerizing in this latest black-and-white 3D documentary marvel. Having previously made gutsy, macho films like Chopper and The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, Dominik’s latest effort feels like a real change in flavor.

Nick Cave Faces Tragedy In Illuminating, Intimate ‘One More Time With Feeling’ – Venice Film Festival Review

6 September 2016 11:49 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Shrouded in grief and chilly to the core, Andrew Dominik’s mournful documentary “One More Time With Feeling” is at once sobering in tone and intoxicating in style. The intimate film follows singer Nick Cave in and out of the studio as lays down tracks for his upcoming album “Skeleton Tree,” doing so in the face of tremendous personal loss. Though it will undoubtedly hit fans the hardest, even those less familiar with the Australian rocker will find much to admire in this lyrical portrait of sorrow, creativity and perseverance, shot in luscious black and white 3D.

Cave commissioned the film himself, intending it to be his first, last and only public statement to support the release of his latest album, and it’s easy to understand why. In July 2015, Cave’s 15-year-old son Arthur died, falling off a cliff in the English town of Brighton. Arthur died before Cave »

Shia Labeouf Almost Starred in ‘Suicide Squad’

6 September 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In this week’s Variety cover story, Shia Labeouf reveals that he’s sworn off big-studio tentpoles after “Transformers” and “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.”

But after shooting “Fury,” director David Ayer tried to convince him to consider a part in “Suicide Squad,” a role that eventually went to Scott Eastwood. “The character was different initially,” Labeouf says. “Then Will [Smith] came in, and the script changed a bit. That character and Tom [Hardy’s] character [later played by Joel Kinnaman] got written down to build Will up.”

Labeouf says the studio vetoed his casting. “I don’t think Warner Bros. wanted me,” he says. “I went in to meet, and they were like, ‘Nah, you’re crazy. You’re a good actor, but not this one.’ It was a big investment for them.”

Labeouf was more haunted by another role that got away–Casey Affleck’s Oscar-nominated turn in 2007’s “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford »

A Bigger Splash (Luca Guadagnino)

Despite a loose script that justifies little, Italian director Luca Guadagnino’s follow-up feature to his glorious melodrama I Am Love is a sweaty, kinetic, dangerously unpredictable ride of a film. One is frustrated by the final stroke of genius that never came, but boy was it fun to spend two hours inside such a whirlwind of desires, mind games, delirious sights and sounds.

One More Time With Feeling director Andrew Dominik says the musician wanted to promote his new album Skeleton Tree without having to talk to the media

Nick Cave decided to make a documentary about his new album Skeleton Tree to avoid having to discuss the painful subject of his son Arthur’s death with the media, said One More Time With Feeling director Andrew Dominik.

Dominik, best known for feature films such as The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford and Killing Them Softly, was speaking to journalists as One More Time With Feeling received its world premiere at the Venice film festival.

One More Time With Feeling review – undeniably moving contemplation of loss

5 September 2016 8:24 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The singer opens up over the tragic death of his 15-year-old son, airing his raw grief in this unconventionally directed documentary

“I think I’m losing my voice,” says Nick Cave, early on in this documentary, directed by Andrew Dominik of The Assassination of Jesse James renown. Cave certainly sounds a little croaky at the time, but the metaphorical ramifications are not in the slightest bit lost on the spindly, silk-shirted poet of ruination and loss.

And so begins the transformation of this film from a hagiographic, but essentially standard-issue, promotional film for Cave’s upcoming album, into an undeniably moving contemplation of shattering loss and – as Cave repeatedly terms it – “trauma”. For hovering in the background of this film – and the album it documents – is the death of Cave’s 15-year-old son Arthur, midway through recording, in July 2015.

Venice Film Review: ‘One More Time With Feeling’

5 September 2016 7:21 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If you wanted to beam an image to distant galaxies that communicated the look and meaning of the words “hipster rock star,” you could hardly do better than to send an image of Nick Cave. He was 58 years old when Andrew Dominik’s 3D black-and-white documentary “One More Time With Feeling” was shot, and he looks it, but quintessential rockers don’t age like the rest of us — they may acquire wrinkles, bags under the eyes, and so on, but they hold onto their aura, their ageless it factor. Cave undoubtedly has it. Tall and lean, with long stringy ink-black hair, clad in a jacket with tuxedo lapels that he wears with ironic elegance, he looks like a cross between Iggy Pop and Jim Jarmusch, though the years have also given this alt-pop dandy a pair of thickening eyebrows that are pure Richard Nixon.

As incongruous as that may sound, »

Venice 2016: One More Time with Feeling review

5 September 2016 6:45 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆ One More Time with Feeling is a music documentary in a minor key, a song sung about grief and loss and trying to carry on when you really do not want to carry on. Like Cave's music, there is melancholy and honesty. Shot in an immersive and starkly beautiful black and white 3D, the movie is an emotionally resonant meditation on art and suffering. Directed by Andrew Dominik, whose film The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford was scored by Cave and bandmate Warren Ellis, the ostensible motive is to record the making of the 16th Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds album The Skeleton Tree.
