Every week we dive into the cream of the crop when it comes to home releases, including Blu-ray and DVDs, as well as recommended deals of the week. Check out our rundown below and return every Tuesday for the best (or most interesting) films one can take home.

Chimes at Midnight and The Immortal Story (Orson Welles)

The crowning achievement of Orson Welles’s extraordinary cinematic career, Chimes at Midnight was the culmination of the filmmaker’s lifelong obsession with Shakespeare’s ultimate rapscallion, Sir John Falstaff. Usually a comic supporting figure, Falstaff—the loyal, often soused friend of King Henry IV’s wayward son Prince Hal—here becomes the focus: a robustly funny and ultimately tragic screen antihero played by Welles with looming, lumbering grace. »

Nick Cave’s Tragedy and the Very Beautiful Music Documentary: An Interview With ‘One More Time With Feeling’ Director Andrew Dominik

29 August 2016 6:06 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Andrew Dominik has created a gorgeous, immersive, and emotional experience in “One More Time With Feeling.” Sprung from the grief of Nick Cave, it is black-and-white, 3D, and a music documentary like no other.

I screened it in the basement of the Australian filmmaker’s Lauren Canyon home, then spoke with Dominik on iPhone video as he smoked an American Spirit on his patio, then inside on iPhone audio over a bowl of spaghetti bolognese. The film will premiere at the Venice International Film Festival.

Dominik first met his fellow countryman because they both once dated the same woman, who is the mother of Dominik’s child. Cave would call her on the phone and the two men would chat; they got along. “Nick Cave was like Jesus in Melbourne where I’m from,” said Dominik. “He’s a person people had a wide array of feelings about. People loved him, »

Does This List Really Reveal The Best Films Of The Century?

28 August 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week, Neil Calloway takes a look at a list claiming to reveal the best films of the 21st Century…

Earlier this week, casual film fans were sent running first to IMDb and then to Netflix or Amazon at the news that David Lynch’s Mulholland Drive was named in a poll of 177 film critics as the best movie of the 21st Century so far.

It’s been on my “I need to re-watch that” list for a while, and from what I remember it’s a fine film, but I don’t think it’s the best of this century. I don’t think the critics who put it at the top of the list believe it is either.

Only 16 of the 177 – less than 10% named it as their number one film (and at my count 150 critics didn’t include it at all), but it appeared in the top five in many lists. »

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, »

Frank Ocean Shares His Favorite Films, Including Tarkovsky, PTA, Kurosawa, Lynch, Kubrick & More

23 August 2016 9:17 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After a few delays, Frank Ocean‘s Channel Orange follow-up, Blond, has now arrived and, with it, not only an additional visual album, but Boys Don’t Cry, a magazine that only a select few were able to get their hands on. (Although, if you believe the artist’s mom, we can expect a wider release soon.) In between a personal statement about his new work and a Kanye West poem about McDonalds, Ocean also listed his favorite films of all-time and we have the full list today.

Clocking at 207.23 hours, as Ocean notes, his list includes classics from Andrei TarkovskyDavid Lynch, Ingmar Bergman, Stanley Kubrick, Martin Scorsese, Orson Welles, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Jean Cocteau, Alfred Hitchcock, Francis Ford Coppola, Fritz Lang, Werner Herzog, Akira Kurosawa, Ridley ScottBernardo BertolucciSergei Eisenstein, F. W. Murnau, Luis Buñuel, and more.

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.

The Nice Guys (Shane Black)

It’s been over 40 years since Chinatown, and roughly the same amount of time separates the events of that film from those of The Nice Guys, another tale of a private detective in Los Angeles taking on an initially simple case which leads him to a vast, environmentally centered criminal conspiracy. The Nice Guys even carries on Chinatown’s heartbeat of individual helplessness when confronted with the casual body disposal of profit-hungry industrialists. »

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 »

Andrew Dominik previews his 3D feature doco on Nick Cave's new album

10 August 2016 4:42 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Andrew Dominik.s new film, One More Time With Feeling, marks new territory for the director on two counts: it's in 3D and it's in black and white.

Screening globally from September 8, the documentary chronicles the recording of Skeleton Tree, the new album from Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.

"When Nick approached me about making a film around the recording and performing of the new Bad Seeds album, I.d been seeing quite a lot of him as we rallied around him and his family at the time of his son.s death," said Dominik, whose credits include Chopper, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford and Killing Them Softly..

"My immediate response was 'Why do you want to do this?' Nick told me that he had some things he needed to say, but he didn.t know who to say them to. The idea of a traditional interview, »

Official Trailer for Another Nick Cave Doc 'One More Time With Feeling'

2 August 2016 1:58 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Most of us don't want to change..." Another incredible peek inside the mind of Nick Cave! The first trailer has debuted for a documentary called One More Time With Feeling, made by The Assassination of Jesse James director Andrew Dominik, which follows Cave producing his new album titled "Skeleton Tree" (out in September). The trailer is entirely in black & white, but the feature-length doc has both color and B&W footage as well as 2D and 3D footage, showing Cave working in the studio and outside as well. The footage in this looks stunning, and I'm a huge fan of Andrew Dominik, so I'll probably catch this just to get a glimpse at his most recent work. The "other" Nick Cave doc was called 20,000 Days on Earth and played throughout festivals in 2014-2015, earning mostly positive reviews for being a unique creation. This one is also unique.

Also set to premiere at the Venice International Film Festival ahead of worldwide screenings on September 8th, the film now has a first trailer. It shows off black-and-white imagery (the film also has color, as well as a mix of 3D and 2D) as we see Cave both in the studio and out and about.

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.

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford is a contemplative, slow-paced, superbly acted piece of contemporary filmmaking which has to be considered an important player in the 21st century revival of the Western genre, an artistically accomplished, technically brilliant exploration of one of the founding myths of American identity, and a movie whose stature is bound to rise in the decades to come. »
