Joshua Reviews Kirsten Johnson’s Cameraperson [Theatrical Review]

9 September 2016 9:10 AM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

Usually the home for the latest and greatest in classic, arthouse and foreign language film restorations, distributors Janus Films have become as much known for their painstaking work in restoring and subsequently distributing classic films as they have been for their connection to The Criterion Collection. Offering a direct route from big to small screen, Janus has also turned the rare new release acquisition into something truly special. Taking on far fewer new release films a year than even the smallest of independent distributor, the Janus stamp is one of quality and curation.

However, in the case of Kirsten Johnson’s Cameraperson, even that doesn’t seem to do it the justice it so rightly deserves.

Best known as a documentary cinematographer, with films like Citizenfour and Fahrenheit 9/11 to her name, Johnson has become one of non-fiction cinema’s most lauded photographers. With an uncanny ability to shoot films as »

Mike Birbiglia’s ‘Thank God For Jokes’ (Likely) Headed To Netflix & 8 Other Ama Reveals

25 August 2016 1:40 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Occasioned by the recent release of “Don’t Think Twice,” Mike Birbiglia took to reddit for an Ama yesterday. The biggest reveal is that he’ll (hopefully) be filming a performance from his “Thank God for Jokes” tour for Netflix, though the comedian/actor/filmmaker had plenty else to say as well:

 

On the interplay between sadness and comedy: “I’m just trying to dig into the sadness and hopefully find some comedy so that hopefully you can too. I mean, that’s the goal. I’m doing my best.”

 

On people pronouncing his name wrong: “People keep telling me that local NPR ads for Don’T Think Twice keep saying ‘Mike Ber-Beehl-ia’s movie…’ etc. I think some names are never meant to be learned. Sincerely, Mike Birbigilbug”

Watch: First Trailer for Kirsten Johnson's Powerful Doc 'Cameraperson'

22 August 2016 3:30 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"A transcendent documentary experience..." Janus Films has debuted the official trailer for an outstanding documentary called Cameraperson, a very unique cinematic experience compiling the 25-year career of cinematographer Kirsten Johnson. Johnson has been working as a cinematographer for documentaries for a long time, working on projects including Citizenfour, Where to Invade Next, The Invisible War, This Film Is Not Yet Rated, Fahrenheit 9/11 and many others. To make this film, she compiled various bits and pieces of footage from all of her projects and edited them together with a very vague narrative. I luckily had the chance to see this doc and it's incredible - a deeply visceral experience. I felt every emotion watching it, from happiness to fear to sadness to joy to disgust, and was amazed by the film she created. Don't miss this. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Kirsten Johnson's doc Cameraperson, direct from Vimeo: A boxing match in Brooklyn. »

Shame on the MPAA

5 August 2016 9:21 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Suicide Squad has been rated PG-13 for "sequences of violence and action throughout, disturbing behavior, suggestive content and language," which is an extremely generalized reading of what we actually see on screen. Personally, I would have added "gratuitous sequences of gun violence that make shooting look fun, with a tendency to desensitize viewers of all ages" somewhere in the mix. But that's just me. As chronicled in the 2006 documentary This Film Is Not Yet Rated, the Motion Picture Association of American (MPAA)'s ratings board is a shadowy group that rates films based on the opinions of a group of members about whom very little is known. One of the main critiques of the board is that it tends to be much harsher on depictions of sex than it is on depictions of violence, a bizarre standard that has been demonstrated many times over in the form of big-budget studio »

Newswire: Mike Birbiglia had some “foul language” for the MPAA over its Suicide Squad rating

3 August 2016 5:45 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Is there any organization with more power over Hollywood, and less respect from the people whose destinies it controls, than the Motion Picture Association Of America? The MPAA’s content ratings have huge implications on movies’ box office receipts, but often seem almost willfully out of step with the actual content they’re meant to label and protect younger audiences from.

Directors have been arguing with the MPAA for years, from Kevin Smith arguing for his right to show cartoon scrotums, to The Invisible War director Kirby Dick’s feature-length takedown, This Film Is Not Yet Rated. The latest gladiator to wade into the surprisingly bloody (but sex-free) arena of arguing with the MPAA? Comedian and director Mike Birbiglia, who hopped onto Twitter today to compare and contrast the association’s treatment of his recent film, the improv dramedy Don’t Think Twice, and David Ayers’ just-released violence orgasm Suicide »

Sundance: How 'Cameraperson' Filmmaker Kirsten Johnson Found Herself in Her Own Documentary

30 January 2016 9:04 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Sundance Review: ‘Cameraperson' is a Transcendent Documentary Experience Lauded cinematographer Kirsten Johnson has worked on some incredible films during the course of her 25-year-long career, from "Citizenfour" to "This Film Is Not Yet Rated," "Derrida" to "Lioness," "Pray the Devil Back to Hell" to "The Invisible War," and many more in between, but she's long rejected the idea of putting her own life on the big screen. Until, that is, she decided to make "Cameraperson," a bold documentary that functions as both an overview of Johnson's professional life and a probing look inside her own personal experiences. Partially a cinematic collage of some of Johnson's most essential pieces of work, the film uses both old and new material to provide a touching and complex look at the person behind the camera, before finally pulling her clearly into frame. Indiewire sat down with Johnson at the festival »

Sundance: 'Chelsea Does' Director Eddie Schmidt on Getting Real With Chelsea Handler For Netflix

26 January 2016 7:27 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

For months now, we've been waiting to find out what exactly it meant for comedian and host Chelsea Handler to leave "Chelsea Lately" and sign a deal with Netflix. But while the shape of her promised talk show has yet to be revealed, here's the documentary "Chelsea Does...," which features Handler taking on four specific topics — marriage, racism, technology and drugs — that interest her on different levels. Whether it's hating her iPhone or putting on a bright pink wedding dress, Handler gets real and personal for the four almost-feature-length installments, which happened to be guided by director Eddie Schmidt.

TV Review: ‘Chelsea Does’

22 January 2016 1:55 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Chelsea Does,” a group of four documentaries examining different topics, works best when its host, Chelsea Handler, stops doing and simply listens. The series can’t quite decide if it’s an exercise in image management for its star or an in-depth examination of whatever subject is under the microscope, and that indecision ends up giving much of the endeavor a self-indulgent and superficial tone. Occasionally, “Chelsea Does” is both rigorous and curious and uses its star’s comedic talents to judiciously probe difficult subjects, but those moments aren’t as frequent as one might hope.    

Put simply, “Chelsea Does” contains a lot of filler, much of which reaffirms the self-congratulatory myopia and cluelessness that afflicts much of America and certainly Hollywood as well.

Viewers would likely be best off skipping the first half of the second documentary, “Chelsea Does Racism.” There’s no better demonstration of condescending obliviousness than »
