HBO, Amazon Prime team up to stream 'The Sopranos,' 'The Wire' & more

23 April 2014 7:43 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

For cord-cutters who aim to watch the best of television without a cable box (or, in some cases, even a television), HBO has long been the big missing piece of the puzzle. HBO has its own streaming video service, HBO Go, but you can only access it if you already have a cable subscription (or if you have a friend or relative with a subscription who will share their password with you). Cord-cutters ask all the time about the possibility of HBO Go being offered independently, but it would completely undermine HBO's very lucrative business model to do so, and it hasn't happened yet, and likely won't anytime soon. But today in a very big deal for the future of streaming TV — and for the ongoing war for streaming supremacy between Netflix and Amazon (a rare battlefield where Amazon is an underdog) — HBO and Amazon announced an agreement to, »

Spike Lee Signs With ICM Partners

27 January 2014 5:30 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Breaking: Spike Lee, one of the stalwarts of New York filmmakers who helped put modern indie filmmaking on the map, has signed with ICM Partners. The move comes less than two weeks after his agent Billy Hawkins exited CAA, and ICM has just made the signing known to staffers. The agency jump comes 25 years after the release of Do The Right Thing, the Lee “joint” that landed Oscar nominations for Original Screenplay and put the helmer on the path to such vital films as Jungle Fever, Mo’ Better Blues and Malcolm X, which drew two more Oscar nominations. The move marks a return to the ICM fold, his home before moving to CAA. Lee is as busy as ever now, and is in postproduction on Da Sweet Blood Of Jesus, a vampire pic for which he raised money via Kickstarter. His fundraising efforts on the site drew almost $1.3 million — and »

Film Review: ‘The Great Flood’

8 January 2014 2:41 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Great Flood,” the latest documentary from found-footage impresario Bill Morrison, revisits the catastrophic 1927 event that inundated an area of some 27,000 miles along the Mississippi. Morrison incorporates nitrate deterioration into his work’s very structure, so that the washed-out, shimmery grayness of the floodlands seems to penetrate the film stock itself. The water imagery, with its sinuous flow, casual surrealism and dreamlike, ominous quality, underscored by jazz guitarist Bill Frisell’s bluesy, elegiac score, slowly reveals a racial divide eerily similar to the one informing Spike Lee’s magisterial Katrina doc “When the Levees Broke.”  An art piece, a sociopolitical document and a musical meditation, “Flood” should strike chords with niche audiences.

For much of the film, newsreel cameras capture the flood’s devastation. In some places, only the tops of trees visibly break the gleaming gray expanse of the water. In other places, partially submerged businesses still function just above the waterline. »
