Isabelle Huppert joins Nicolas Cage and Willem Dafoe in Abel Ferrara’s Siberia

21 December 2016 8:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to The Film Stage, Elle star Isabelle Huppert has signed on to star in Siberia, the latest project from controversial filmmaker Abel Ferrara (The Driller Killer, Bad Lieutenant), and will be joined in the cast by Nicolas Cage and Willem Dafoe.

Last year, Ferrara launched a Kickstarter for Sibera, where the project was described as “a subjective and objective journey into the subconscious… [exploring] the language of dreams, myth and the natural world” – but failed to meet his $50,000 goal.

Ferrara’s most recently film Pasolini was released in 2014, and saw Willem Dafoe in the lead role. »

Film Review: ‘Army of One’

5 November 2016 1:37 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In 2012, I was invited to participate in Sight & Sound magazine’s “greatest films of all time” poll. For a film critic, that’s an awesome honor — and an even greater responsibility — and for some reason I’ll never fully understand, I second-guessed my choices at the last minute, withholding my all-time favorite movie (“Fargo”) and submitting “Borat” in its place. In my defense, Sight & Sound voters always stick to the canon with this poll, since the titles with the most votes win, whereas I sincerely believe that “Borat” is the most revolutionary movie of the last decade, an anarchic social critique for the post-reality-tv era, featuring radical comedy techniques pioneered by “Seinfeld” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm” director Larry Charles.

I have chosen this space to own up to my mistake (I’ll admit, however genius I still consider “Borat” to be, it ain’t one of the 10 greatest films of »

‘Dog Eat Dog’ Review: Willem Dafoe and Nicolas Cage Pioneer New Levels of Crazy in Paul Schrader’s Insane New Crime Drama

4 November 2016 7:45 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Paul Schrader has made no secret of his frustrations about interference from the studios or moneymen that fund his films, going so far as to openly protest the release of 2014’s “The Dying of the Light” with a Facebook post in which he declared that the project “Was taken away from me, reedited, scored, and mixed without my input.” Of course, that was hardly Schrader’s first rodeo. A pugnacious poet-warrior whose screenwriting credits includes the likes of “Taxi Driver” and “The Last Temptation of Christ” (and whose occasionally transcendent directorial efforts make those movies look commercial by comparison), he’s never been a big fan of playing things safe. With the bawdy and intoxicatingly batshit “Dog Eat Dog,” Schrader is off the leash once and for all.

And, um, he doesn’t waste any time making that clear. “Dog Eat Dog,” which might be most coherently interpreted as a »

This November, Arrow Video offers horror fans a wide variety of thrills and onscreen kills with their respective Blu-ray releases of C.H.U.D., The Initiation, and The Driller Killer, and the full release details for all three Blu-rays have now been revealed.

Press Release: Mvd Entertainment Group furthers the distribution of Arrow Video in the Us with three great new titles in November. The month kicks off with The Initiation on Blu-ray, one of the best of the college-based slasher movies of the 1980s. One of the later entries into the genre, it had horror fans hooked with its tense stalk 'n' slash scenes and it's surprising twist of an ending.

The horror continues with C.H.U.D., the classic 80s horror featuring the Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dwellers making their long-awaited debut on Blu-ray with a brand new restoration from original film elements.

How dare you remake my classic! When directors attack

16 September 2016 8:52 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Woe betide the Hollywood studio that revisits a classic film without the blessing of its original creative team. Because things can get ugly ...

Dante’s Inferno makes little mention of those who profit from the work of others, but cult indie director Abel Ferrara once predicted a special place in the pit of suffering for anyone who dared to remake his classic films. Upon learning that Werner Herzog, the famed German champion of bonkers romanticism, was making a new version of Bad Lieutenant, his scuzzy 1992 tale of a lost soul on the streets of New York, Ferrara seethed: “I wish these people die in hell. I hope they’re all in the same streetcar and it blows up.”

At least Herzog’s version, which he cheekily claimed to have made without any knowledge of Ferrara’s existence, turned out to be rather good – at least if you’re fond of »

Newswire: Werner Herzog’s film school primarily teaches you to break the rules

26 August 2016 7:28 AM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

Werner Herzog has a unique approach to filmmaking, one that he’s proven surprisingly willing to share. The Bad Lieutenant: Port Of Call New Orleans and Grizzly Man director recently teamed up with MasterClass to teach the methods to his madness, which apparently include extralegal activities. At least, that’s the part of his syllabus that Herzog shared with Conan O’Brien, who took all of the talk of forgery and the hoodwinking of military officials in stride.

Herzog was on Conan to talk up his latest film, Lo And Behold, Reveries Of The Interconnected World, which examines how the virtual world of the internet has shaped the tangible one. So the fatalistic director naturally discussed the lessons he imparts via T1 lines, including securing financing as well as opening doors, i.e., lock-picking. Herzog also promotes perseverance via forgery when the situation warrants it. Rules are just as meaningless »

Werner Herzog Has Some Thoughts on Internet Trolling and Virtual Reality

21 August 2016 11:06 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Werner Herzog’s “Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World” is now in theaters, meaning we finally have the chance to hear the singular auteur wax rhapsodic about the internet as he once again reveals the ecstatic truth about his chosen subject. Vice spoke to him about virtual reality, how humanity’s future will be impacted by our increasing dependence on the internet and even online trolls. Among several highlights from their discussion is Herzog’s description of the first time two computers “spoke” to one another: “a beautiful vision of the future, like a biblical event: lo and behold, there was internet.”

10 August 2016 10:38 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

What if you just walked away from your life and completely started over? What if you walked away from that new life and started over again? What if you did that again and again and again? That’s the premise of Joshua Marston’s new romantic identity drama “Complete Unknown,” starring Rachel Weisz as a woman who constantly reinvents herself and soon brings an ex-lover Tom (Michael Shannon) into her manufactured world.

It doesn’t even need to be said, but Hollywood loves revitalizing an old property that already has a fan base in the hopes that it will guarantee a hit. But quite frankly, it’s a bit of a limp formula that stymies creativity and originality in favor of money. It is important to note though, that […]

Werner Herzog’s Way of Life: How He Makes a Living and Why He Teaches Filmmaking

15 July 2016 1:09 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Werner Herzog is not your average film school teacher. A self-taught director, his globe-trotting adventures and chaotic man-versus-nature dramas are not the easiest projects to transform into a curriculum, but that hasn’t stopped him from giving it a shot.

Whether it’s through his Rogue Film School or, most recently, as one of the A-list instructors featured on online learning empire MasterClass, Herzog has no interest in teaching the technical elements of moviemaking. The German-born filmmaker, whose career includes epics like “Fitzcarraldo” as well as idiosyncratic documentaries such as “Cave of Forgotten Dreams”  wants to create what he calls “soldiers of cinema,” and the path to victory can be stoking his students’ appetites for experiencing life.

Werner Herzog’s latest documentary “Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World” chronicles the virtual world from its unlikely origins to its outermost reaches, examining the modern, malleable digital landscape with a curious, keen eye. Aided by his indelible voiceover, Herzog speaks with such tech visionaries as Bob Kahn, Elon Musk, and Sebastian Thrun to explore how the virtual has completely changed the physical, and the ways in which our lives are forever altered by our connection to the Internet. Herzog probes the philosophical questions that lie not so far beneath the surface and takes a harsh look at the benefits and pitfalls of our new world.

Nicolas Cage: examining his recent straight-to-dvd movies

4 July 2016 9:51 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kirsten Howard Jul 5, 2016

We dig through the ten recent straight-to-dvd films of Mr Nicolas Cage. Can we find a gem in there?

The first Nicolas Cage movie I saw wasn’t one of the cool ones. It wasn’t Wild At Heart, Raising Arizona or even Valley Girl. It was the Cher rom-com, Moonstruck.

My mum, having just gone through an acrimonious divorce, was trying to drum up the optimism to find love again, and apparently that involved watching a lot of rom-coms where an idealised – or at least intrinsically whimsical – version of love prevailed over boring old steadfast responsibility.

She would watch Dirty Dancing three or four times in a day, rewinding the ending relentlessly and bawling her eyes out. A VHS of Baby Boom was worn down until the tape resembled a type of grey, flimsy nylon. I hesitate to imagine what she was projecting with repeated viewings of Overboard, »

The Trust review – a misfire on every level

29 May 2016 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Elijah Wood is an unconvincing police officer in this disastrous heist drama

This corrupt cop heist flick is a tonal car crash that winks conspiratorially as it dispatches supporting characters by shooting them in the face. Without the wry, genre-savvy smarts of Tarantino or the propulsive drive of someone such as David Ayer, this is a misfire on every conceivable level. And none more so than the casting. Nicolas Cage reprises his Bad Lieutenant persona as Vegas policeman turned criminal mastermind Stone. But it is Elijah Wood as his partner who is most problematic. There are foetuses that would be more convincing in the role of a jaded lawman than Wood. You can festoon him with hookers and drug paraphernalia – he still looks like a newly hatched baby bird.

Werner Herzog Artificial Intelligence Simulator 'WernerBot' Lets You 'Talk' to the Director Directly

Cannes Film Review: ‘Dog Eat Dog’

20 May 2016 4:11 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

They say prostitution is the world’s oldest profession, but that’s only because crime doesn’t pay, or else robbers, murderers and thieves would surely come first. Their exploits have been the stuff of cinema since the medium’s earliest days, to the extent that the crime genre has become all but calcified — which surely explains why director Paul Schrader goes so far out of his way to break all the rules with “Dog Eat Dog.” Coming off the indignity of having “Dying of the Light” taken away from him, the “Taxi Driver” screenwriter-turned-director seems determined to try out some new tricks. He means for the result to feel fresh and electric, but instead, his anarchic approach (one could even call it “criminal,” considering how it deliberately disobeys genre laws) frequently verges on incompetent, as most of the time, rejecting the obvious choice leads to choosing a worse one. »

SXSW Film Review: ‘The Trust’

13 March 2016 5:44 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Making the first of an expected six film appearances in 2016 alone, the ever-prolific, never-selective Nicolas Cage at least seems to be enjoying himself more than usual in “The Trust,” a thinly conceived but juicily played heist thriller directed by the sibling team of Alex and Ben Brewer. Cast as a dirty, downright Mephistophelian cop teaming up with a reluctant younger officer (an effective Elijah Wood), Cage supplies a stream of tension-defusing laughs while the script steadily applies the screws, but this disposable exercise in comic nihilism offers only a modest payoff at best. Commercial returns look similarly slim, though Cage completists may be heartened to see a vehicle with even this much life pulsing through its veins; the pic will stream exclusively on DirecTV starting April 14 before rolling out May 13 in theaters and on VOD.
