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.

‘Lo and Behold’ Exclusive Posters: Werner Herzog Examines The Virtual World

7 July 2016 3:41 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

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. See some exclusive posters from the film below.

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, »

‘American Crime’ Composer Mark Isham On Writing His Score For Show’s Second Season – Awardsline

26 June 2016 1:32 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Exclusive: Mark Isham has been scoring film and television since the 1980s, ringing of a stack of interesting credits that includes Reversal of Fortune, Point Break, From the Earth to the Moon, Crash, The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, among many others. His haunting score for the second season of ABC’s John Ridley-created drama American Crime is one of the season’s big stand outs, a continuation of the chamber-music style he brought to season one with hints of… »

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

22 May 2016 1:58 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Werner Herzog's internet documentary "Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World" doesn't yet have a release date. In the meantime, we'll have to occupy ourselves with WernerBot, a new Facebook page that allows us to chat with the singular filmmaker behind everything from "Aguirre, the Wrath of God" to "Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans"...kind of. Read More: Sundance Review: Werner Herzog's 'Lo and Behold' Will Make You Experience the Internet in New Ways Describing itself as "the best and only way to chat with Werner Herzog over the Internet," WernerBot comes across as an artificial-intelligence version of a PSA about the importance of reading. Seemingly every question or statement you direct toward it will be responded to with variations on "The only thing you should be doing is reading," "Read" or "Why aren’t you reading?" The only downside to this approach: We don't »

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.
