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, »

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.

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. Note that if you’re looking to support the site, every purchase you make through the links below helps us and is greatly appreciated.

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 »

30 Actors Who Consistently Appear in This Decade's Best Movies

19 August 2016 6:17 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Over the last decade, a lot of great actors and actresses have emerged as truly special modern talents. There are a handful of these performers that we can almost always count on to deliver truly great performances. But is there a way to determine who is the most consistent? Well, a new study at least tried to, and the results are very interesting.

The study was done by Medium and aimed to see which actors consistently appeared in the highest-rated movies. The site used data from the Taste movie app, which features ratings of movies to gather their data. As for the criteria? The time period was from 2006 to 2016, and the actor or actress had to have appeared in at least 5 movies during that time period, and had to have a leading or major supporting role in those movies. Here is how they did their calculations.

Most writing on Christian Desmares and Franck Ekinci‘s April and the Extraordinary World speaks as though they’ve adapted one of revered Frenchman Jacques Tardi‘s graphic novels. This isn’t quite the case. What they’ve actually done is bring his unique “universe” to life with help from previous collaborator Benjamin Legrand (writer of Tardi’s Tueur de cafards) instead.

As is usually the case with the films of Paul Thomas Anderson, we’re not exactly holding our breath that we’ll be seeing his next collaboration with Daniel Day-Lewis anytime soon. To help ease the wait for their reunion following There Will Be Blood, an extensive conversation has now surfaced online, featuring the pair at NYC’s 92nd Street Y, discussing their 2007 sprawling masterwork not long after its release.

Comparisons to Citizen Kane, being influenced by Treasure of Sierra Madre, why the last line is why Daniel Day-Lewis wanted to do the film, how Jonny Greenwood delivered over two hours of music, shooting on the same location as Giant, and more are discussed during the talk. “My decision-making process has to happen in such a way that I’m absolutely unaware of it, otherwise I’m somehow objectifying a situation that demands something utterly different,” Day-Lewis notes, speaking to »

29 July 2016 3:55 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paul Dano will make his feature directorial debut with the coming-of-age drama “Wildlife,” helming from a script he’s written with Zoe Kazan.

The New World (Terrence Malick)

Terrence Malick is a filmmaker who has always valued photogenic artistry over narrative thrust, content to let his stories and characters wash over the audience like a crashing wave. There are few directors who indulge in such visual splendor, his creative aphorism seemingly being beauty for the sake of beauty. For Lubezki’s first collaboration with the director, The New World, it was also an opportunity for him to shoot (at least partially) on 65mm. »

‘Van Helsing’: Neil Labute Challenges Expectations With Bloody, Surprising New Syfy Series

21 July 2016 6:48 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

“This is a show about pacifists.”

So claimed executive producer Simon Barry after fans at Comic-Con watched a particularly gruesome scene from the upcoming Syfy series “Van Helsing.”

Clearly, nothing could be further from the truth.

But what’s truly shocking about “Van Helsing” has little to do with blood (even though there’s a lot of it). Neil Labute is actively bucking expectations fans may have regarding vampires.

The award-winning playwright — who’s making his debut as a showrunner on this one-hour drama — decided early on things would be different with this interpretation of Bram Stoker’s age-old vampire hunter. For one, he would be a she. Syfy’s “Van Helsing” tracks Vanessa Helsing as she learns to deal with a “secret power” that helps her oust nightwalkers, and actress Kelly Overton couldn’t have drawn from a better source.
