Interview: Denis Villeneuve on "Arrival" and his Future with Sci-Fi

12 January 2017 6:40 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

by Nathaniel R

Though awards season is a roller coaster of emotion each year, one of its purely happiest annual trends is the sudden recognition of talent that have been doing consistently fine work all along. This year's "it's about time!" contender is surely 49 year old French-Canadian director Denis Villeneuve. A famous director at home with six wins at Canada's own Oscars, "the Genies," people are still learning his name in Hollywood and beyond. His international breakthrough was Incendies (2010) about twin siblings journeying to the war torn Middle East. It was nominated for the BAFTA and the Oscar for Best Foreign Language film. Since that breakthrough his profile in Hollywood has steadily risen and he's shown a gift for directing movie stars, versatility with genre, and a particularly refined skill at building and maintaining tension at feature length which has provided thrilling moments in all of his recent films from »

‘Arrival’: How DGA Nominee Denis Villeneuve Shaped His Unique Oscar Contender

12 January 2017 8:00 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

There’s no question that “Arrival” is one of the best-crafted movies of 2016 — its many critics group and guild nominations attest to this. On Oscar nominations morning, the sci-fi drama will likely dominate the field along with “La La Land.” And in a competitive year for the Best Actress Oscar, Amy Adams is in contention for a slot.

All that said, there’s no way this film’s smart script and unique visuals would have survived a studio’s development process.

The movie boasts an unusual pedigree: Independently produced by Fox’s 21 Laps producer Shawn Levy, Film Nation and Lava Bear, and acquired by Paramount at auction for $20 million at Cannes 2014, “Arrival” is far from Hollywood standard fare. It’s custom-made and idiosyncratic in all the right ways. Montreal filmmaker Denis Villeneuve, who has charted »

How ‘Hacksaw Ridge’ and ‘Hell or High Water’ Could Find Oscar Success With Male Voters

4 January 2017 2:16 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

When it comes to the Academy Awards, voters tend to think highbrow. They like to represent the best, most humane, classiest version of themselves.

But don’t forget the Steak Eaters.

The Academy is full of them. They’re red-blooded males (not just American) — often directors, writers, and craftspeople. They’re the guys who voted for Oscar-winners “Argo,” “The Silence of the Lambs,” “Braveheart,” “Gladiator,” “Avatar,” and yes, “Crash” over “Brokeback Mountain.”

“They vote for big movies that make big money, good solid moviemaking with great actors and good storytelling,” one veteran Oscar campaigner told me. In recent years, this faction of the Academy voted for mainstream hits such as Ang Lee’s “Life of Pi,” Alfonso Cuaron’s “Gravity,” Clint Eastwood’s “American Sniper,” George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road,” and A.G. Inarritu’s “The Revenant.”

This year, several movies could get a boost from the Steak Eater vote. »
