The Diminishing Old Guard Of Hollywood

7 December 2011 2:24 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

One director brought the smell of napalm in the morning to our screens. Another took us to a Galaxy far, far away. One brought Dinosaurs back to life and into our cinemas. We all know who they are: Coppola, Lucas and Spielberg. All of them seen above, minus Marty, have cracking beards, but that’s not the point. With the man holding the smaller Golden man, Martin Scorsese, having recently released the critically acclaimed Hugo into the cinematic realm we’re left to wonder; what’s happened to the rest of them? Their once almighty talents now seem to be focused upon diminishing their own legacies, the desire they once had to create and maintain their filmic reputations seem to be diminishing with every new feature they release. With Spielberg about to unleash his disappointing technological imagining of the Euro-centric Tintin on the American market this Christmas.

Let’s start with Coppola, »

Nine Directors in Need of a Career 'Pick Me Up'

10 November 2011 10:01 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

After recently watching Trespass on Blu-ray, The Ward on Netflix Instant and catching J. Edgar on its early rollout, I began to notice a trend of legendary and/or highly touted filmmakers who have tailed off in recent years. So I began thinking of other helmers that have fallen onto similar hard times and came up with a list of nine who, in my opinion, have lost their fastball. It's important to note that while it's difficult to evaluate all of these directors on an equal scale, all of these names were selected based on one basic criteria: their recent output has failed to live up to their once impressive past. Outside the nine below, there were a few I others I considered. Directors such as Bryan Singer, Tim Burton, Stephen Frears and Cameron Crowe, but ultimately I didn't think their declines were as steep as those I chose to profile, »

Twixt – review

14 September 2011 8:41 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

On the stroke of midnight Val Kilmer is lurched back in time to mingle with ghosts past and present in Francis Ford Coppola's rotten pumpkin of a film

You can't blame veteran directors for being keen on the past. Woody Allen's latest is a wistful hymn to the pull of nostalgia in which aspirant novelist Owen Wilson is transported, on the stroke of midnight, back to 20s Paris, where he has helpful run-ins with iconic artists. Francis Ford Coppola's film features an alarmingly identical plot: Val Kilmer is a "bargain basement Stephen King" who gets plot advice from hero Edgar Allen Poe when he nips through a wormhole after – yep – the clock chimes midnight.

What you can blame them for is making this Cinderella fixation quite as tedious as Coppola manages. Apparently inspired by a booze-induced dream, it's simply too full of personal import to connect with an audience. »

Toronto 2011. Francis Ford Coppola's "Twixt"

13 September 2011 1:05 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

As a followup to Uncas Blythe's most excellent introduction to Val Kilmer's musings on David Mamet's Spartan (2004), let's have a look at what the critics are saying about the film that, in some universe somewhere, goes on to win 17 Academy Awards.

"With the quasi-comic horror trifle Twixt," begins Joseph Jon Lanthier at the House Next Door, "Francis Ford Coppola joins the long list of narrative-conjurers to (mis)appropriate Edgar Allan Poe as a sober maestro of spook. A pallid, somber fictionalization of the author, played by Ben Chaplin, becomes Virgil to the Dante of Hall Baltimore (Val Kilmer, looking likeably portly), a bargain-basement witch novelist who gets fittingly embroiled in a small-town murder mystery…. Twixt is Coppola in grindhouse mode, from Bruce Dern's cud-chewy performance as a possibly corrupt sheriff to the teen goth vampires, and proudly (anti-)sex symbols, that 'threaten' the town from across a »

[Tiff Review] Twixt

12 September 2011 5:01 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After a stellar career directing some of cinema’s greats—The Godfather, Apocalypse Now, The Conversation—you can’t blame Francis Ford Coppola for deciding to film smaller passion projects in his twilight. After the self-financed Tetro and Youth Without Youth, he returns with a story from an unusual origin. With an alcohol-induced dream in Istanbul, a vivid conversation with Edgar Allen Poe while a murder mystery happens as a backdrop, the impetus behind Twixt was born. Awoken before its end, Coppola scribbled down what he could remember and wrote a short story to convert into his script. Utilizing the parallel between Poe’s tragic loss of his young wife/cousin and the equally devastating accident that claimed Coppola’s son, the theme coming through the art is a wonderfully bittersweet idea that our loved ones get buried in our work. I admire the ability to allow his newest piece »

Letter from Toronto: Coppola's Twixt Is Stubborn Old-Coot Filmmaking; Stillman's Damsels Hardly Dazzles

12 September 2011 9:00 AM, PDT | Movieline | See recent Movieline news »

Francis Ford Coppola's Twixt is kind of stupid and kind of amazing, a horror movie-fairytale hybrid with an inscrutable plot, some gorgeous images and two brief sections shot in 3-D. This isn't the great film Coppola's devotees have been waiting for him to make. But it's infused with more of Coppola's spirit, as we know it, than Youth Without Youth and Tetro, both of which were sluggish and self-serious. Twixt is a bit of a mess, but it's also joyful and wicked, with a great, roly-poly sense of humor about itself. In its imaginative Wtf-ness, it reminds me of Bob Dylan's gloriously whacked-out Masked and Anonymous, just the sort of thing you'd expect a crackpot genius left to his own devices to make. »

Charlie Sheen to Star in Roman Coppola’s A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charlie Swan III

9 September 2011 9:15 AM, PDT | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

Now that a new season of Two and a Half Men is officially underway without Charlie Sheen and the media circus surrounding his departure has died down, a lot of people have been wondering if some of the warlock's black magic has started to wear off. His live tour was a bit of a bust and we really haven't heard much about him since. Well, this week it appears that Sheen has booked his first major role since the meltdown, and he will be starring in Roman Coppola's next film A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III. The plot seems suspiciously well-suited to Sheen as it revolves around a wealthy and charming ladies man whose life starts to spiral out of control when his girlfriend dumps him. Jason Schwartzman will also co-star. Roman Coppola is, of course, the son of Francis Ford Coppola and brother of Sofia. »

Roman Coppola's Next Film Will Be A Glimpse Inside The Mind Of Charles Swan III

3 September 2011 11:41 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Roman Coppola is the son of legendary director Francis Ford Coppola, but he's quite the filmmaker in his own right. In 2001, Roman wrote and directed his first feature Cq, a throwback to the grooviest of cinema from the 1960s specifically Danger: Diabolik. Though it has been a decade since Roman directed Cq, he also Roman co-wrote the script for The Darjeeling Limited along with director Wes Anderson and is currently co-writing Anderson.s new project Moonrise Kingdom. He also served as the second unit director on several of his sister Sofia's films, a renowned independent filmmaker herself, including Lost in Translation and Marie Antoinette. He did the same for his father's latest film Youth Without Youth. Now indieWire is reporting that Roman finally has a new film of his own in the works entitled A Glimpse Inside The Mind of Charles Swan III for which he reportedly also wrote »

Djimon Hounsou Is The Angel of Death In ‘Paradise Lost’; ‘Magic Mike’ and ‘Rush’ Land Female Leads

22 August 2011 3:29 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The two lead roles in Alex ProyasParadise Lost have been set for Bradley Cooper (who’s playing Lucifer) and Benjamin Walker (who’s playing Michael), but another major part has been cast. ShowBlitz says that Djimon Hounsou is boarding the film, in the part of the angel of death, Abdiel.

In John Milton‘s original poem, Abdiel went to tell God of Lucifer’s actions, and he also participated in the final battle, where he did some smiting. Perhaps most importantly, some have speculated that the character serves as an autobiographical piece of work on the author’s part; anyone think Proyas will do the same? (That’s just a joke.) Hounsou is a strong, intense actor, and I think that he’ll fit this part rather convincingly. Plus, it should help break the bad streak he’s had lately, which included things like Never Back Down and Push »

German Actress Alexanda Maria Lara Takes Ron Howard’s Rush!

22 August 2011 10:54 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Whilst Ron Howard is still hoping to get The Dark Tower off the ground with lead star Javier Bardem apparently still attached (though it looks like wishful thinking to us), the Oscar winning director is stepping up a gear on his next picture, the racing drama Rush.

Scripted by The Queen and Frost/Nixon writer Peter Morgan, the movie is based on the life of Formula 1 racer Niki Lauda and his near-fatal 1976 racing season which coincided with the rivalry he and Englishman racer James Hunt shared. In a significant coup, Howard attached Thor actor Chris Hemsworth for the James Hunt role earlier this year with Inglourious Basterds actor Daniel Bruhl set as the Austrian racer Lauda.

Variety updates us on the project today with the news that German actress Alexanda Maria Lara, who I know best as Hitler’s sympathetic new secretary in Downfall but who has also appeared in The Reader, »

'Downfall' & 'The Reader' Star Alexandra Maria Lara Lands Female Lead In Ron Howard's 'Rush'

22 August 2011 7:04 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While "The Dark Tower" may have crumbled for now, Ron Howard isn't wasting any time mourning missed opportunities, as the director continues to move into production on the racing pic "Rush." Alexandra Maria Lara has joined Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Brühl in the film, taking on an unspecified female lead role in the film (we presume she will be a some kind of love interest for the latter). The actress has been part of a numerous notable films including "Downfall," "The Reader," "Youth Without Youth," "Miracle at St. Anna" and "The Baader Meinhof Complex," and while she may not be… »

Francis Ford Coppola’s Twixt Trailer Starring Val Kilmer

3 August 2011 10:57 AM, PDT | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

Few would argue that Francis Ford Coppola is one of the greatest living filmmakers still working today, but what was the last truly great movie that he directed? After a decade long absence, he returned in 2007 with Youth Without Youth, a movie that bewildered audiences and critics alike. He followed that in 2009 with Tetro, a slightly more straightforward semi-autobiographical drama that mostly flew under the radar. Now he is back this year with another curiosity called Twixt, a thriller starring Val Kilmer as Hall Baltimore, a horror writer who gets caught up in a murder mystery in a small town. The movie will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival next month, and a trailer has debuted over on their YouTube channel. It has a quirky, almost comedic tone and definitely feels reminiscent of Twin Peaks, although there is a distinct gothic vibe as well. Elle Fanning co-stars as the »

Trailer: Francis Ford Coppola’s ‘Twixt’ looks suitably eccentric

3 August 2011 10:24 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Any trailer that features Tom Waits narration can’t be all bad, but we all have the right to be less than sure about Twixt, the new and seemingly semi-autobiographical vampire detective story (?!) from American icon Francis Ford Coppola. On one hand, his last movie, Tetro, was a surprise return to form and almost certainly his best in decades. On the other hand, this trailer much more strongly evokes the wacky hijinx of the not-so-great Youth Without Youth, only with Val Kilmer taking the bullet this time around instead of Tim Roth. (One for the plus column, though: Elle Fanning as some sort of ghoulie.) Judge for yourself – the three-and-a-half minute trailer is below, and the movie premieres at Tiff this fall.

Long Trailer For Francis Ford Coppola’s Twixt Released

2 August 2011 10:18 PM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

If there was one name that took this year’s San Diego Comic-Con by storm, it wasn’t any name related to the world of comic books or big summer tentpole pictures, but one rooted deep within the world of film.

Bringing his latest film, Twixt, to this year’s Con, Francis Ford Coppola had the web all a buzz with his latest picture, and for a cavalcade of reasons.  Not only did the footage itself become some of the most polarizing footage shown at the convention this year, but with Coppola’s announcement that a special road show may be in the works, this film became the belle of the ball.  Coppola revealed that he plans on bringing the film to various cities, where he’ll cut the film and its Dan Deacon-penned soundtrack as if he was a DJ playing to a crowd.  The crowd loves longer cuts? »

‘Twixt’ Trailer: Francis Ford Coppola’s ‘Twin Peaks’

2 August 2011 1:49 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Ever since he got back to making movies, Francis Ford Coppola’s artistic sensibilities have definitely taken a turn for the more philosophically surreal -- as evidenced by Youth Without Youth, Tetro, and his latest project, Twixt.

Coppola showed off footage from his supernatural horror flick at the 2011 Comic-Con last week. Twixt will premiere at the upcoming 2011 Toronto International Film Festival, which has gone ahead and released an extended trailer for the film.

Twixt tells the tale of Hall Baltimore (Val Kilmer), a burn-out supernatural horror writer whose career is on the decline. While traveling through a small California town as part of the tour for his latest book, Hall is approached by local lawman Bobby Lagrange (Bruce Dern) about the possibility of collaborating on a new novel, based on the mysterious local ...

Francis Ford Coppola’s ‘Twixt’ Trailer

2 August 2011 11:59 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Francis Ford Coppola‘s Twixt is something that we’ve covered a great deal on this site, but even things like stills don’t really tell us how this will look and feel as a film. Luckily, a trailer has arrived on Tiff’s YouTube channel (via FirstShowing), and it’s an extensive look at the director’s return to horror.

What strikes me the most about the preview is how much it truly feels like a Coppola movie. Those who have only seen The Godfather movies may not be aware of his penchant for including some stranger-than-normal touches, and the way he uses certain things — like black and white or fading — feels right at home in his filmography. And the line about writing for profit? Anybody who knows the man’s history knows how much that must mean to him. I’m not sure if that music we hear is from composer Dan Deacon, »

10 Unrealised Films We Wish Had Been Completed!

25 July 2011 2:57 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

 

(As our editor Matt Holmes turns 25 today, he’s out of office and we are going to re-publish some old favourites.)

With the frustrating news breaking last week that Guillermo Del Toro’s adaptation of At the Mountains of Madness (based on an H.P. Lovecraft story) is ‘dead’, I began thinking about some of the other potentially great projects that audiences were tragically destined to never see. From further research it’s clear that the major directors that have worked within the industry have abandoned vast numbers of productions that would have easily been big money makers and both critical and financial successes. Indeed, filmmakers like Alfred Hitchcock, David Lynch and Orson Welles have abandoned dozens of projects, even after beginning production on some of them!

Read on to discover the ten unrealised features that we’d love to have seen completed…
