Venice Film Review: ‘Eye on Juliet’

30 August 2017 1:50 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Big Brother is always watching, this much we know — but what if he’s also a stand-up guy who really cares about you? That, somewhat dubiously, is the premise of “Eye on Juliet,” a long-distance love story that will surely remain the only film in history to remind viewers at points of both “Eye in the Sky” and “An Affair to Remember.” Canadian writer-director Kim Nguyen’s fanciful tale of a Detroit drone operator losing his heart to a North African surveillance subject is naive by design, as it imagines a future utopia where both physical and cultural distances can be bridged through empathy, with a heavy assist from technology. Yet this well-meaning film winds up seeming more than a little obtuse in its flat avoidance of geopolitical detail, not helped by disproportionately faint sketching of its non-western characters — a disappointment from the talented filmmaker behind “War Witch,” 2012’s vivid, Oscar-nominated »

The Lost City of Z movie review: archaeology was his religion

18 April 2017 2:26 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

MaryAnn’s quick take… An adventure of the intellect and of the heart with the real-life explorer who inspired Indiana Jones, one more about the journey than the destination. I’m “biast” (pro): love a good adventure; love director James Gray

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

He was a real-life Indiana Jones. Literally: the Harrison Ford character was based on British explorer Percy Fawcett, one of the last of those intrepid men (always men, of course) to boldly venture into uncharted (by white people, that is) territory in search of knowledge, and to fill in the blank spaces on the maps. A cartographer and archaeologist, he was obsessed with the idea that remnants of a lost dead civilization were hidden in the Amazonian jungles, and he disappeared — along with his traveling companion, »

James Gray on the Financial Realities of Independent Filmmaking: ‘I Am Struggling Financially’

16 April 2017 11:02 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

James Gray is back in theaters with “The Lost City of Z,” a film at once markedly different from and right at home among the rest of his distinguished body of work. The “We Own the Night,” “Two Lovers” and “The Immigrant” director has spoken with Vulture about the financial realities of independent filmmaking, offering a number of candid — and sobering — statements: “You know, people assume that because I’m a director, I make tons of money. I am struggling financially,” he said.

“Now, I’m very lucky I get to do what it is I want to do,” Gray continued. “I’ve made, good or bad, very uncompromising movies, the movies exactly that I wanted to make, and that’s a beautiful gift, so I’m not complaining about that. But I struggle. I have a hard time paying my bills. »

Why Brad Pitt Sent James Gray ‘The Lost City of Z’ And Pushed the Filmmaker In a New Direction — Podcast

14 April 2017 7:37 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After James Gray finished reading David Grann’s book “The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon” – a nonfiction chronicle of British explorer Percy Fawcett’s obsessive quest to find a lost civilization buried deep in the Amazonian jungle – he was confused why Brad Pitt had sent it to him.

“I have absolutely no idea what they want me to do this,” said Gray when he was guest on IndieWire’s Filmmaker Toolkit podcast. “There had been nothing in my career as a director that had shown I could do anything like this.”

Paramount had bought the book for Pitt , whose production company Plan B (“Moonlight,” “12 Years a Slave”) ultimately produced the film. Pitt had always wanted to work with Gray, and while it didn’t happen this time, Pitt will star in Gray’s Sci Fi film “Ad Astra,” which is shooting this summer. »

James Gray on the Wistfulness of ‘The Lost City of Z,’ Twitter Mishaps, and Stealing from the Best

12 April 2017 11:21 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Read even just a couple of interviews with him and you’ll realize that James Gray — in his humor, candor, self-effacement, knowledge, and general kindness — is better at the process than almost anybody else. So I’d experienced twice over, and now a third time on the occasion of his latest picture, The Lost City of Z. Although I liked the film a whole lot upon seeing it at last year’s Nyff and found it a rich source of questions, our conversation proved too casual and genial to be intruded about with a query about sound mixing — which I, of course, just knew I’d ask before entering a hotel room and sitting at a tiny table, complementary chocolate cake between us, and realizing that my muse then and there was instead a question about Steven Soderbergh’s Twitter account.

'The Lost City of Z' Review: Charlie Hunnam Hunts for His Heart of Darkness

11 April 2017 12:48 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

James Gray makes films like an explorer, digging for the details that define character and art. The Lost City of Z doesn't look like Gray's other movies. Little Odessa, The Yards, We Own the Night, Two Lovers and The Immigrant mostly investigated the corners of his native New York. The Lost City of Z, set in Ireland, England and the Amazonian jungle at the start of the 20th Century, takes the Russian-Jewish Gray out of his comfort zone. His skilled screenplay, adapted from the 2009 book by David Gann, tells the story of Col. »

Movie Review – The Lost City Of Z (2016)

20 March 2017 9:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Lost City Of Z, 2016.

Directed by James Gray.

Starring Charlie Hunnam, Tom Holland, Sienna Miller, Robert Pattinson, and Angus Macfadyen.

Synopsis:

The true-life story of early 20th century soldier-turned-explorer Percy Fawcett who discovered signs of an early civilisation in the Amazon basin.  After serving in World War I, he made a final expedition, along with his teenage son, convinced that he would at long last find both the location and the proof he’d been searching for.

Think of a director who could make an epic movie, and somewhere at the foot of the list would be James Gray.  Films like The Yards (2000) and Two Lovers (2008) earned him Palme D’Or nominations that didn’t translate into box office.  The Immigrant (2013) fared even worse: not only was its distribution severely limited in America, it didn’t even make it into UK cinemas.  Now, after working on essentially the fringes »

Interview: Director James Gray on The Lost City of Z

16 March 2017 4:51 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

We’re huge fans of James Gray’s work on HeyUGuys. His work on films such as We Own the Night, Two Lovers and 2013’s under-seen (but often on Netflix) classic The Immigrant are stirring works of an assured cinematic hand. Next week his latest film, The Lost City of Z, arrives in UK cinemas, and is well worth your time.

The film tells the story, so vividly brought to life in David Grann’s 2009 bestseller, subtitled: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon, of explorer Percy Fawcett. His journeys deep into the Amazon to uncover the secrets of a lost civilization were followed intently at the time, making his disappearance in 1925 of the most enduring mysteries of the 20th century.

45 Years (Andrew Haigh)

Andrew Haigh’s third feature as a director, 45 Years, is an excellent companion piece to its 2011 predecessor, Weekend. The latter examined the inception of a potential relationship between two men over the course of a weekend, whereas its successor considers the opposite extreme. Again sticking to a tight timeframe, the film chronicles the six days leading up to a couple’s 45th wedding anniversary. Though highly accomplished, Weekend nevertheless suffered from a tendency towards commenting »

James Gray Explains Why Cannes Palme d’Or Winners Are Often “Incredibly Boring To Watch”

6 March 2017 6:45 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

We’re couple of months away from the world’s most prestigious (and sometimes gaudiest) movie event, the Cannes Film Festival. It’s where the creme de la creme of global cinema is served on the lushest of red carpets, and plenty of Very Important Films are either feted with laurels or heartily booed. However, one favorite of the Croisette, James Gray — who’s had four of his films screen including “The Yards,” “We Own The Night,” “Two Lovers,” and “The Immigrant” — sees something troubling in the kinds of movies that are generally celebrated in the south of France each year.

Allied (Robert Zemeckis)

That thing we can’t take for granted: a film whose many parts – period piece, war picture, blood-spattered actioner, deception-fueled espionage thriller, sexy romance, and, at certain turns, comedy – can gracefully move in conjunction and separate from each other, just as its labyrinthine-but-not-quite plot jumps from one setpiece to the next with little trouble in maintaining a consistency of overall pleasure. Another late-career triumph for Robert Zemeckis, and one of the year’s few truly great American movies. »

Fireworks Wednesday (Asghar Farhadi)

After a festival tour back in 2006, Asghar Farhadi’s Fireworks Wednesday was theatrically re-released by the newly established Grasshopper Films, and now it’s arriving on DVD. The drama is another precisely calibrated, culturally specific demonstration of Farhadi’s skills in constructing empathy machines. Further in line with the director’s filmography, this story has a nesting-doll structure that combines ingrained social hierarchies, domestic drama, and a tragic intersection of misunderstandings. And while it »

Premiere Interviews: The Lost City of Z – Charlie Hunnam, Tom Holland & James Gray

16 February 2017 3:07 PM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

Director James Gray has made a number of superlative films. Films such as We Own the Night, Two Lovers and 2013’s under-seen classic The Immigrant each have Gray’s trademark of a startlingly assured hand. His latest film, which had its European premiere in London this evening, is another exploration of human identity albeit in a far more adventurous form.

The premiere Of The Lost City Of Z was held at The British Museum in London and was attended by actors Charlie Hunnam, Sienna Miller, Robert Pattinson, Tom Holland, Edward Ashley, Harry Melling, Tom Mulheron, and director James Gray.

The Lost City of Z

That’s quite a cast, and with cinematographer Darius Khondji (who created some of this writer’s most cherished images in The City of Lost Children) audiences are in for a treat.
