Take a 'Walk Among the Tombstones' with Cinematographer Mihai Malaimare Jr.

19 September 2014 11:11 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

For cinematographer Mihai Malaimare Jr., "A Walk Among the Tombstones," now in theaters, represents his first atmospheric thriller as well as his first experience shooting in New York City. Of course, in discussing the visual style with writer-director Scott Frank, they decided to go for a '70s gritty, de-saturated look, recalling "The French Connection" and "The Parallax View." But adding to the paranoia is the fact that it takes place during the Y2K craze in 1999. In fact, one of the serial killers even points out the irony of people being afraid of the wrong things, which is how he and his partner are able to take their victims totally by surprise. What interested the Romanian cinematographer, who learned his craft collaborating with Francis Ford Coppola ("Tetro," "Youth Without Youth") and Paul Thomas Anderson ("The Master"), was trying to capture New York (Brooklyn, Hell’s Kitchen, Red Hook, »

‘Wild Tales’ Breaks B.O. Record for Warner Bros. in Argentina

25 August 2014 10:32 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madrid – Argentina is going wild over Damian Szifron’s “Wild Tales,” a Special Presentation at Toronto.

But, far from a local comedy, the Cannes competition entry, which boasts impeccable distributor credentials – a Sony Pictures Classics pick-up for North America.; a Warner Bros. Pictures Int’l. buy for Latin America, Spain, and France – has cleaned up most of the world in sales terms via Film Factory Ent.

Germany’s Prokino, Italy’s Lucky Red, the U.K.’s Curzon and Scanbox in Scandinavia are some of the major territory buyers.

In Argentina, distributed by Warner Bros., “Wild Tales” opened to a first-frame 21 million pesos ($2.5 million) and 445,532 admissions, a home-turf all-time record for an Argentine movie. Final figure will probably reach 500,000 when all tix sales are in. Figure, which reps about 65% of total tix sales, bested Universal’s 2013 release of Juan Jose Campanella’s 3D animated feature “Foosball” (17.7 million pesos and 418,280 admissions »

Blu-ray, DVD Release: Y tu mamá también

30 May 2014 9:26 AM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: Aug. 19, 2014

Price: DVD $29.95, Blu-ray/DVD Combo $39.95

Studio: Criterion

Gael García Bernal (l.) and Diego Luna hit the road in Y tu mamá también.

The smash 2001 road comedy Y tu mamá también from the Oscar-winning director Alfonso Cuarón (Gravity) is that rare movie to combine raunchy subject matter and emotional warmth.

Gael García Bernal (Casa de mi Padre) and Diego Luna (Contraband) shot to international stardom as a pair of horny Mexico City teenagers from different classes who, after their girlfriends jet off to Italy for the summer, are bewitched by a gorgeous older Spanish woman (Tetro’s Maribel Verdú) they meet at a wedding. When she agrees to accompany them on a trip to a faraway beach, the three form an increasingly intense and sensual alliance that ultimately strips them both physically and emotionally bare.

Shot with elegance and dexterity by the great Emmanuel Lubezki (The Tree of Life »

Sony Pictures Classics Acquires Cannes competition player ‘Wild Tales’

16 May 2014 2:03 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In one of the high-profile deals announced early during Cannes, Sony Pictures Classics has acquired North America and Australia/New Zealand rights to Damian Szifron’s buzzed-up Cannes Competion entry “Wild Tales.”

Spain’s Film Factory is selling “Wild Tales” at Cannes.

Directed by Damian Szifron, “Wild Tales” was described by Cannes Festival chief Thierry Fremaux as a “very unique, personal and different cinema that should wake up the Croisette.”

“Wild Tales” is written and directed by Argentinean filmmaker Damian Szifron and produced by Hugo Sigman, Pedro Almodovar and Agustin Almodovar, with Matias Mosteirin and Esther Garcia executive producing.

Szifron is best known for a TV series Los Simuladores (“The Pretenders”), produced for Argentine broadcaster Telefe and remade for Mexico’s Televisa by Sony Pictures Television Intl. He broke through to critical attention with 2003’s “Bottom of the Sea,” a tale of obsessive jealousy. 2005’s “On Probation,” a cop-psychiatrist buddy movie, »

Cannes: Warner Bros. To Distribute ‘Wild Tales’ in France, Spain and Latin America

12 May 2014 3:42 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madrid – In a rare acquisition outside its core focus on upscale franchises – think “Harry Potter” and auteur blockbusters – think “Gravity” – Warner Bros. France has acquired all French rights to Cannes Competition player “Wild Tales,” co-produced by Argentina’s K & S and Pedro and Agustin Almodovar’s El Deseo and Warner Bros. Pictures International.

While unusual for WB France, the deal on “Wild Tales” is not unusual for Warner Bros. in general, being just the latest for the Warner Bros. Pictures International on “Wild Tales.” Wbpi already has “Wild Tales” for Latin America. It will also distribute in Spain.

Spain’s Film Factory is selling “Wild Tales” at Cannes.

Directed by Damian Szifron, “Wild Tales” was described by Cannes Festival chief Thierry Fremaux as a “very unique, personal and different cinema that should wake up the Croisette.”

One From the Heart to Francis Ford Coppola

7 April 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Glenn here. As Jason already established, today is Francis Ford Coppola's 75th birthday today. Talia's brother, Sofia and Roman's dad, Nicolas and Jason's uncle, and Gia's grandfather presides over a clearly very talented family that keep kicking artistic goals. We're only four months into this new year and Sofia has (apparently) been hired for her first big studio film, Jason Schwartzman has appeared on screen in indie box office hit The Grand Budapest Hotel, and Gia's directorial debut, Palo Alto, is about to hit cinema screens. What's Frances up to? Well the five-time Oscar winner is laying low it seems after none of his ultra-arty projects - Twixt, Youth Without Youth, Tetro - took off the way he likely expected his artistic return to.

It's then a perfect opportunity to dig a bit deeper into his extensive filmography and find something you've never seen. I know »

Watch: 90-Minute Masterclass With Legendary Editor Walter Murch

4 March 2014 8:45 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Frequent Francis Ford Coppola collaborator and editor Walter Murch (he’s been there since 1979’s “Apocalypse Now” all the way through 2009’s “Tetro”) famously cuts his movies standing up because surgeons, cooks, and music conductors—all fields and processes that Murch has compared to editing—are standing as they perform their jobs. At last year’s Sheffield Doc/Fest, Murch stood in front of a crowd for 90 minutes for an editing masterclass, and the video has surfaced for your education. Building on the ideas he’s presented in documentaries like the great “The Cutting Edge: The Magic of Movie Editing” and “Murch: Walter Murch on Editing,” Murch takes the festival crowd through a lecture and presentation on the history of editing and uses the 2013 Higgs-Boson particle documentary “Particle Fever” to explain the editing process. The masterclass is just under 90 minutes, and if you’ve ever been interested in what goes on in the editing room, »

“Walter Murch: From The Godfather to the God Particle”

23 February 2014 10:11 AM, PST | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Legendary film editor, sound designer, writer, translator, amateur astronomer and director Walter Murch needs no introduction. (Oh, what the hell, his credits include The Conversation, Apocalypse Now, The Talented Mr. Ripley, Tetro and more.) In addition to being a great filmmaker, he’s also a great teacher and talker about film. Here, at the 2013 Sheffield Doc Fest, where he accompanied the doc, Particle Fever, he gives an inspiring speech on film editing, technology, audience expectation, how film grammar is changing with digital technologies, and physics. Don’t miss this. »

France’s Memento to Sell Sundance Player ‘Lock Charmer’ (Exclusive)

13 January 2014 10:48 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris — Re-upping with one of its multiple breakout talents in recent years, Paris-based Memento Films International (Mfi) will handle world sales on Natalia Smirnoff’s Sundance-selected drama “Lock Charmer.”

Produced by Juan-Pablo Miller’s Buenos Aires-based Tarea Fina –whose credits include Cannes Camera d’Or winner “Las Acacias” and Berlin-selected “Natural Sciences,” which won Ventana Sur coveted Primer Corte award last month – “Lock Charmer” plays from Tuesday week at the Sundance Festival’s World Cinema Dramatic Competition.

Also written by Smirnoff, whose debut, “Puzzle,” was a festival and sales hit, “Lock Charmer” stars Esteban Lamothe (“The Student”) as a commitment-phobic 33-year-old locksmith who, having found out his on-off girlfriend is pregnant and he might well be the father, starts to have – quite accurate – visions about his clients on the other side of the doors he’s working on. He reluctantly sets out to use his gift for his own good. »
