It could only happen in the movies, or could it? Cinematic Depictions of Real Life Tragedies

27 April 2017 5:39 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

It comes as no surprise that some of our most heinous historical world events have become the subject of a cinematic depiction. As audiences wanting their thirst for great cinema and intrigue in world issues grow we have had, in the naughties alone, Roman Polanski deliver The Pianist in 2002 and more recently László Nemes’ Son of Saul to quench our desire. Even this week, we have the release of Terry George’s The Promise which tells the story of the Armenian Genocide in the final years of the Ottoman Empire with Oscar Isaac, Charlotte LeBon and Christian Bale hitting our cinemas.

Whether these events are genocides, horrific murders, acts of terrorism or even demonic paranormal activities, our quest for knowledge, understanding and feeling has inspired filmmakers for years. Their films set out to shine a light on the atrocities and suffering of man, and act to empower »

Tribeca 2017 Critic’s Notebook: Performance Anxiety

24 April 2017 10:50 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Ever searching for an identity, the Tribeca Film Festival returned — for a 16th time last week — to Midtown, the Upper West Side, Chelsea and, yes, the neighborhood for which it’s named. These days the festival never opens with a genuinely great (and thematically appropriate) film like Paul Greengrass’s United 93 or a goofy overstuffed blockbuster like J.J. Abrams’s Mission Impossible III, but usually with a low-key doc centered on iconic New York stuff: comedy (Bao Nguyen’s 2015 SNL doc opener Live from New York!), fashion (Andrew Rossi’s The First Monday in May, which opened last year’s edition) and music — the Nas doc which […] »

‘Five Came Back’ Review: A Cinephile’s Dream Documentary Becomes Enthralling for Everyone on Netflix

31 March 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

War is driven by conflict, and conflict is an endless source for new narratives. So that many of our greatest filmmakers, at some point, find reason to tell a war story makes all the sense in the world. Their greatness and their films’ greatness feels equally preordained. Steven Spielberg made “Saving Private Ryan” and “Schindler’s List”; Francis Ford Coppola made “Apocalypse Now”; Lawrence Kasdan wrote “The Empire Strikes Back”; Paul Greengrass had “Green Zone” and “United 93”; and Guillermo del Toro took war into the future with “Pacific Rim.”

These five filmmakers would have plenty to say regarding the motivations of making war films all on their own, but “Five Came Back” isn’t focused on these five legendary filmmakers. The three-hour documentary written by Mark Harris (and based on his book) features these legendary men paying homage to the legends who preceded them; not only as directors or directors of war movies, »

8 March 2017 3:07 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The original companies will continue to release film and TV projects under their respective labels.

Backed by what representatives called “substantial equity investment” from China Cultural And Entertainment Fund (Ccef), the parties have merged to create a film and TV producer-financier.

Ske chairman and CEO Sidney Kimmel (main picture) and Ivanhoe Pictures chairman Robert Friedland (middle picture) will serve as co-chairmen of Sk Global.

Chairwoman Yang Liu and managing director Alick Dong of China-focused private equity fund and investment management company Ccef will oversee the investment and provide strategic advice to Sk Global as the venture seeks to expand throughout Asia.

Dong will join Kimmel, Friedland and Ivanhoe Pictures co-founder and Ske president John Penotti (pictured below Friedland) on the Sk Global board alongside Kimmel advisor Matthew Kamens and Ivanhoe Pictures vice-chairman Gary Gartner.

Sk Global will control the combined libraries of both companies including all current productions, comprising more than 75 features.

Patriots Day review – taut dramatisation of the Boston marathon bombing

26 February 2017 12:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Mark Wahlberg and director Peter Berg team up again after Deepwater Horizon for this briskly paced procedural

There’s something very satisfying about films that follow professionals tested by extraordinary situations – movies like Paul Greengrass’s United 93 for example. Director Peter Berg has already delivered one such celebration of the skilled everyman with Deepwater Horizon. He reunites with Deepwater star Mark Wahlberg for Patriots Day, a taut, multi-stranded account of the Boston marathon bombing.

As a police procedural, this is first-rate: unflinching, briskly paced film-making that pieces together the fast-moving investigation in a wholly satisfying manner. The nature of the terror attack means that there are distressing images of injuries. Berg doesn’t shy away from this, but he pulls back out of a sense of decency when it comes to the fatalities. Boston-born Wahlberg is strong in the central role, a tough-guy cop with a temper and a »

Did the 2007 Oscars get it right?

22 February 2017 11:38 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Feb 24, 2017

It’s Oscar weekend! But how well do the Academy Award choices of ten years ago hold up? We’ve taken a look...

The Academy Awards are the highest profile snapshot of what films are highly rated within 12 months of their release. What they can’t predict, however, is how well regarded their choices will age, and only time can tell you that. Which is why I thought it’d be interesting to go back a decade, and see how the winners of the 79th Academy Awards, handed out on February 25th 2007, stack up ten years on…

Best Picture: The Departed

Also nominated:

Babel Letters From Iwo Jima Little Miss Sunshine The Queen

At the time, there was a little bit of acceptance that The Departed was the Scent Of A Woman moment. That just as Al Pacino got rewarded for good work in a film that’s not his finest, »

Movie Review – Patriots Day (2016)

22 February 2017 8:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Patriots Day, 2016.

Directed by Peter Berg.

Starring Mark Wahlberg, Kevin Bacon, John Goodman, J.K. Simmons, Michelle Monaghan, Christopher O’Shea, Rachel Brosnahan, Alex Wolff, Themo Melikidze, Jimmy O. Yang, Jake Picking, and Melissa Benoist.

Synopsis:

April 15th, 2013.  As the Boston Marathon is in full swing, two brothers set off homemade bombs in an act of terrorism.  In the chaotic aftermath, the local police join forces with the FBI to identify the perpetrators and track them down.  The resulting manhunt shuts down the entire city.  Based on true events.

Making a film just three years after the tragic events of the Boston Marathon might seem like undue haste.  But there’s no sign of that in Peter Berg’s Patriots Day, his third collaboration with Boston native, Mark Wahlberg.

After their success with the true life story of Deepwater Horizon, it was no surprise that they looked for similar inspiration for their next project together. »
