P.T. Anderson's "Vice" Shoots Next Year

28 December 2012 8:29 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With "The Master" now behind him, filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson is turning his attention towards his next project - an adaptation of Thomas Pynchon's noir novel "Inherent Vice."

Anderson plans to begin shooting sometime next year and has apparently done much of the script. He says this will be a much more faithful adaptation than his "There Will Be Blood" was of Upton Sinclair’s "Oil!".

"It's more secretarial. The credit should be like 'secretary to the author. But it’s no less fun. In some ways it's just what the doctor ordered right now for me: being more selfless" says Anderson, who adds that the underground comic strip 'Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers' has been an invaluable "research bible" for him.

Set in the 1960s, the story centers around an often stoned private detective in Los Angeles who investigates the kidnapping plot of his ex-wife's new land developer husband. »

P.T. Anderson eyes 2013 shoot for 'Inherent Vice' adaptation

27 December 2012 5:39 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Paul Thomas Anderson's "Inherent Vice" adaptation appears to be gathering steam. The "Master" auteur is planning to begin production on his previously-reported big-screen version of the Thomas Pynchon novel sometime next year, according to a profile of the director in today's New York Times. Not only that, but the famously freewheeling Anderson claims that unlike his adaptation of Upton Sinclair's "Oil!" - the basis of his 2007 masterwork "There Will Be Blood" - he won't be taking many liberties with the book's story. “It’s more secretarial,” said Anderson. “The credit should be like ‘secretary to the author.'...But it’s no less fun. »

Paul Thomas Anderson Has Been Collaborating With a Reclusive Author to Develop ‘Inherent Vice’

27 December 2012 3:00 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Speculation surrounding what Paul Thomas Anderson’s next project is going to be like is usually intense enough in the film geek community, but when the guy starts making claims in interviews that his next film is going to be like a Cheech and Chong movie, well then people really start scratching their heads. The project in question is called Inherent Vice, and it’s an adaptation of a Thomas Pynchon novel that the director has been said to have been working on for about as long as we’ve known he was going to make The Master. Pynchon’s book is set in ’60s-era Los Angeles and features a drug-soaked private investigator named Larry “Doc” Sportello as its protagonist. It’s a story that’s awash with music and cultural references from the era, and in a profile that The New York Times did on Anderson, he gave the publication a little bit of insight into »

Paul Thomas Anderson Hopes To Shoot Thomas Pynchon's Inherent Vice In 2013

27 December 2012 12:26 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

While Paul Thomas Anderson started his career making films at a rapid pace - releasing Hard Eight, Boogie Nights and Magnolia in the span of three years, the last decade has seen his speed slow considerably. After releasing Punch-Drunk Love in 2002 there was a five year gap before he came out with There Will Be Blood in 2007, and there was another five years between that film and The Master, which came out this fall. But the Oscar-nominated filmmaker is waiting around to get started on his next project. He knows exactly what he's making and he's trying to bring it to us as fast as he can. With The Master still very much in Award season discussions - with stars Joaquin Phoenix, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Amy Adams all up for Golden Globes - The New York Times recently sat down with Anderson and during their long career-spanning conversation the »

Paul Thomas Anderson Says He Hopes To Shoot 'Inherent Vice' Next Year, Drawing Inspiration From 'The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers'

27 December 2012 9:45 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Paul Thomas Anderson might be one of the most lauded and devoutly-followed filmmakers working today, but he's hardly been Mr. Prolific of late; three films in the last decade in "Punch Drunk Love," "There Will Be Blood," and this year's "The Master," each one made five years apart. But with the latter long since in theaters (some calling it the best movie of 2012, others expressing disappointment), Anderson's looking to the future, and suggesting that we might have a shorter wait for his next movie. In an expansive interview with the New York Times about the making of "The Master," Anderson talks about the future, confirming that his next film, as long expected, will be an adaptation of Thomas Pynchon's "Inherent Vice," with the paper revealing that the writer-director has "a large stack of pages" from the script, and that he plans to get before cameras next year. We've known that his. »

Paul Thomas Anderson Hopes to Shoot Inherent Vice in 2013; Says the Adaptation Is More “Secretarial” Than There Will Be Blood

27 December 2012 9:35 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Though director Paul Thomas Anderson’s drama The Master was certainly one of the most polarizing films of 2012, it looks as if he’s tackling some more straightforward subject matter for his next feature.  Anderson has been eyeing an adaptation of the Thomas Pychon novel Inherent Vice for a few years now, and he worked on nabbing financing for the pic early last year, at the same time that he got The Master financed.  Last we heard, Anderson was working on the screenplay with Robert Downey Jr. keen on tackling the starring role, and now post-Master Anderson has talked a bit more about the project, revealing that he hopes to start shooting next year. Hit the jump to see what Anderson had to say. For those unfamiliar with the source material, Inherent Vice takes place in 1969 Los Angeles and centers on a private detective who is helping a former lover »

Ricky D’s 50 Favourite Films of 2012 (Part Two)

22 December 2012 4:26 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

 

25: The Dark Knight Rises

Directed by Christopher Nolan

Screenplay by Jonathan Nolan and Christopher Nolan

2012, USA

The Dark Knight Rises feels as if it was made up of two equal halves, with the most critical moment of the film breaking the movie in half, almost literally. While the second half may have been a let down, the first half is incredibly ambitious to say the least. The opening sequence, a gravity-defying skyjacking, is a tour de force – wildly choreographed, vivid, visceral, and chock full of suspense. That aerial extraction alone is worth the price of admission. Production-wise, effects-wise, Nolan’s movie (with sequences shot with Imax cameras) is staggering. There was an opportunity here for Nolan to stretch the boundaries of what is possible in the genre, alas, the final act becomes a little too conventional – complete with a doomsday device and a ticking-clock countdown. But for every quibble, »

Top Ten Film Scores of 2012

20 December 2012 7:42 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

I have to say that it’s been a particularly great year for film scores. Not only did we see the return of established staples such as John Williams, Danny Elfman, and Thomas Newman, but we were treated to some strong new talent like Dan Romer, Benh Zeitlin and Heather McIntosh. I had a difficult time solidifying this top ten, and an even more impossible time with my top five, of which all could have been my number one. Anyway, enough introduction and here’s my top ten film scores of 2012.

 

1. Beasts of the Southern Wild (Dan Romer & Benh Zeitlin | Cinereach Music)

Dan Romer and Benh Zeitlin, also wearing the directorial cap on this picture, teamed up to deliver what I consider to be the best score of the year, brimming with compositions that celebrate the genuine wonder of life while at the same time never losing sight of the »

Constructive Concepts: A conversation with production designer Jack Fisk

19 December 2012 12:58 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Trevor Hogg chats with Jack Fisk, who was born 67 years ago today, about the craft of production design, and his collaborations with Terrence Malick, David Lynch and Paul Thomas Anderson...

“My mother was artistic in a time that didn’t encourage women to take on a career of their own so she always had me enrolled in art classes where ever we were living,” recalls Jack Fisk when reflecting upon his childhood.  “My wife [Sissy Spacek] is an actor/filmmaker, our daughter Schuyler is a singer/songwriter and our daughter Madison is a painter and an art director.”  The native of Canton, Illinois became enthralled with cinema while pursuing a different artistic endeavour   “When I was studying painting at Cooper Union I went into an empty theatre and watched the Red Desert [1964], Antonioni’s first colour film, and was so excited by it I sat through it two times.

Do Critics Group Awards Actually Help An Oscar Contender, Or Is It All Smoke And Mirrors?

18 December 2012 11:13 PM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

***

Between November and February of every Oscar season, rarely a day goes by that some sort of precursor award isn’t announced. It can all be pretty maddening, especially for those of us tasked with trying to predict the Academy Awards.

This is the time of year when you pretty much only have to throw a rock in order to hit a critics group announcing their year-end awards. Some years the critics all rally around one film, while other years have the love spread around much more. The thing is, though: Does it actually matter at all in terms of the Oscar race?

To be honest, not all critics groups are created equally. There’s some value to smaller groups like the Boston Society of Film Critics, but the ones that have any true sway are the Los Angeles Film Critics Association and the New York Film Critics Circle. »

The Santa Barbara International Film Festival (January 24 - February 3) will honor Daniel Day-Lewis with the Montecito Award at a ceremony on January 26.

The Montecito Award recognizes a performer who has given a series of standout, iconic performances throughout his or her career; past recipients include Kate Winslet, Geoffrey Rush, Julianne Moore, Javier Bardem, Naomi Watts and Annette Benning. Other artists to be feted as part of the fest's pre-Oscar salutes include Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Adams and Robert De Niro, who received the Kirk Douglas Award for Excellence in Film at a ceremony. »

What Is The Year's Best Movie?

15 December 2012 9:25 AM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

The top 10 films of 2012, according to AP Movie Critic Christy Lemire:

1. "Argo" – Directing just his third feature, Ben Affleck has come up with a seamless blend of detailed international drama and breathtaking suspense, with just the right amount of dry humor to provide context and levity. He shows a deft handling of tone, especially in making difficult transitions between scenes in Tehran, Washington and Hollywood, but also gives one of his strongest performances yet in front of the camera. The story of a rescue during the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis sounds like eat-your-vegetables cinema, and mixing it with an inside-Hollywood comedy sounds impossible, but Affleck and screenwriter Chris Terrio pull it all off.

2. "Beasts of the Southern Wild" – This is sheer poetry on screen: an explosion of joy in the midst of startling squalor and one of the most visceral, original films to come along in a while. The story »

The 10 best films of 2012, No 1 – The Master

14 December 2012 12:42 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Paul Thomas Anderson's challenging epic on postwar America completes our roundup of the movies of the year

There are few Hollywood directors from whom "event cinema" is personally expected, but Paul Thomas Anderson is one. This year, he brought his reputation and prestige closer to Kubrick levels with this film, an epic based loosely on the early life of the Scientology founder L Ron Hubbard. Philip Seymour Hoffman plays Lancaster Dodd, a homespun philosopher and cult leader in postwar America. He is a bullish and conceited actor-manager figure who one evening chances upon a semi-homeless alcoholic called Freddie Quell who was invalided out of the Us Navy with a nervous breakdown after VJ Day. Quell is played, unforgettably, by Joaquin Phoenix.

Dodd decides to make poor, muddled Freddie a special project of his, but his failure to indoctrinate his new disciple, to exert his mastery over this troubled man's »

Joaquin Phoenix: 'I feel like Santa Claus'

13 December 2012 4:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The genial star of our No 1 film of 2012 The Master, Joaquin Phoenix, talks about Baudelaire, bullfrogs and being revered

You wouldn't necessarily figure Joaquin Phoenix for a morning person. It's 9am in California, the line is bad, his phone is faulty. Yet this is a man ecstatically happy. It sounds like you're at sea, I say, between the beeps and crackles. "Oh great! I'm so glad it's not just me!" He sounds genuinely over the moon. You'd be less thrown if he just grunted.

Phoenix is an unpredictable interviewee. Will you get the mumbler? The joker? The Phoenix of I'm Still Here, his mockumentary about chucking it all in for a career in hip-hop? Or the guy who smoked his way silently through the press conference for The Master at the Venice film festival, followed by fractious chats and a no-show at the awards ceremony? Two months ago, the Us »
