Angus MacLane interview: directing Finding Dory

28 July 2016 11:52 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Jul 29, 2016

The co-director of Finding Dory on making the film. Plus, he recommends an awful lot of movies to watch...

From working as an animator on A Bug’s Life and Toy Story 2, through to directing shorts such as Burn-e and Toy Story Of Terror, Angus MacLane has worked his way up through his career at Pixar. So much so, that he’s now making his feature co-directing debut on Finding Dory, that lands in UK cinemas today.

He spared us some time for a chat – and it’s worth staying to the end where he starts firing out film recommendations….

I first spoke to you eight or nine years ago when you were talking about Wall-e, that you were supervising animator. And you told me then of an eight-year old who asked you a question about that film at a Q&A. And I do think »

Film Review: ‘In the Shadow of the Hill’

27 July 2016 3:33 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In first-time filmmaker Dan Jackson’s “In the Shadow of the Hill,” Brazil’s 2011 plan to rid the gargantuan Rio de Janeiro favela Rocinha of drug traffickers in advance of the 2014 World Cup and the upcoming Olympic games falters when one family’s very public protest of their disappeared patriarch goes global. Winner of the Documentary Australia Foundation Award at the Sydney Film Festival, the impressionistic yet resonant work is a natural for social justice-themed events and nonfiction sidebars.

At first, the elite yet now-notorious elite squad known as Bope is cautiously welcomed in the slum, having cleared out much of the criminal element without a shot being fired. It might have seemed a good idea on paper, but human nature being what it is the authorities end up policing the favela with an iron fist and remorseless demeanor (the cops’ notorious methods were dramatized in the popular 2007 feature “The »

Padilha Talks The Failure Of "Robocop"

21 July 2016 4:02 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Every other month it seems, a non-u.S. filmmaker takes their shot at a Hollywood film. In early 2014, "Elite Squad" and "Narcos" director Jose Padilha had his go with the reboot of "RoboCop" which sadly failed both critically and commercially.

From all reports during production, the film itself was a victim of compromised vision along with studio politics and economics. The very R-rated franchise tried to go PG-13 to appeal to a wider demographic and failed to find its target.

A few years on, Padilha has reflected on the experience with Screen Daily and from the sounds of it he's in no hurry to return to Hollywood studio or blockbuster filmmaking any time soon:

"I didn't have the creative freedom I needed. I spent 90% of the time fighting. It made me realize that making a studio movie is not the same as making a film. I will think a million »

José Padilha Laments ‘RoboCop’ Remake, Says ‘I Didn’t Have The Creative Freedom I Needed’

20 July 2016 1:16 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Brazilian director and producer José Padilha keeps himself busy nowadays with many film and TV projects after his big Hollywood break with a modern remake of Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 film “RoboCop.” Released in 2014, the film was a commercial success but garnered mostly mixed to negative reviews. N0w in an interview with ScreenDaily, Padilha admits that making “RoboCop” was a “stressful experience.” “I didn’t have the creative freedom I needed,” says Padilha. “I spent 90% of the time fighting. It made me realize that making a studio movie is not the same as making a film.” Padilha also says that he would “think a million times before getting involved in another production of that size again,” and that he’d “rather face the reality than make movies about superheroes.”

Cannes: Memento boards Jonathan English action-thriller 'Dias'

26 April 2016 2:45 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Deal marks company’s first foray into the action genre; film set to shoot in Athens in September.

Paris-based Memento Film International (Mfi) will kick-start sales at Cannes on UK director Jonathan English’s Athens-set action-thriller Dias, which is due to shoot in the Greek capital in September.

The film revolves around the city’s elite police motorbike force, the Dias, consisting of four-person squads travelling two-by-two on high-powered vehicles. The force was created in 2010 in response to a rise in petty and organised crime after the debt crisis threw the country into chaos.

The story will follow energetic young recruit Theo, who quickly becomes a pivotal member of the force as it presses on with its work of eradicating the city of violent crime gangs but in the end becomes their target too.

“I was in Athens in 2013 and I saw the Dias units fly through the city,” said English »

Narcos’ Jose Padilha Teams With Netflix To Cover Operation Car Wash

18 April 2016 10:39 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fresh off the success of his series Narcos, producer and director Jose Padilha is setting his sights on another real-life scandal. His next streaming project will be an ongoing series based on Operation Car Wash (or Operação Lava Jato), a continuing investigation into corruption at the highest levels of the Brazilian government.

Streaming giant Netflix, clearly pleased with Narcos, has already backed the currently untitled show. Padilha’s vision for the project will apparently have it cover the various facets of the scandal, including its background and the upcoming trials of top politicians and corporate figures.

Due to the journalistic requirements of the ongoing series, Padilha sought out Netflix as a relatively unbiased source of funding:

“This project will follow the judicial investigators in their journey to unveil the largest corruption scheme that Brazil has ever witnessed. It was fundamental for the series to be produced in an impartial way, »
