Interview: Cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki Talks ‘The Revenant’, Working With Terrence Malick, Muting The Ego & Much More

18 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The ascent of cinematographer Emmanuel “Chivo” Lubzeki into a household name (or nickname) can be traced to his stunning work over a 30-year career, but also the enticing narratives behind the scenes on each project. First there come the whispers of what’s happening on a particular set — All natural light! Shot in one unbroken take! Set entirely in space with one character! — and then quickly from there, anticipation mounts around exactly how the hell Lubezki will be able to pull the feat off. The incredible thing is how few missteps have resulted from Lubezki constantly pushing technology and storytelling forward. A lifetime collaboration of over six films with director Alfonso Cuarón has cemented an intimate style coupled with technical prowess, starting with “Sólo Con Tu Pareja” up through 2013’s Oscar-winning “Gravity.” That ambition has only increased in his partnerships with Terrence Malick and Alejandro González Iñárritu, both of which. »

In Oscar Directing Category, ‘More’ Sometimes Beats ‘Best’

9 February 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Here’s a Hollywood riddle. Why are 2015’s director Oscar nominees like Olympic gymnasts? Because their judges seem to have considered degree of difficulty.

These days, the helmer category routinely honors formidable narratives demanding a battlefield general as much as an artiste. Ang Lee ringmastered the 3-D “Life of Pi” menagerie to an Oscar, followed by Alfonso Cuaron recreating the solar system for the interstellar rescue of “Gravity.” Last year, Alejandro Inarritu’s punishing one-take saunter through existential angst ended in his statuette for “Birdman.”

Small wonder partisans are practically going door-to-door to inform voters about the climate extremes Inarritu put his cast through on “The Revenant,” and vehicle stunts pulled off by George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road” team with minimal digital help.

If these films were knockouts, the spin seems to say, look how their makers knocked themselves out.

Even the contempo nominees boasted head-shaking challenges. How, »

Oscar split: George Miller to win, 'Mad Max' to lose?

5 February 2016 3:31 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

It used to be a brave – or foolish – thing for an Oscar prognosticator to pick separate winners for Best Picture and Best Director. Academy members, with rare exception, gave directors credit for the perceived quality of their movies by voting for both. When the awards were split, as they were when Steven Spielberg won Best Director while his movie “Saving Private Ryan” lost Best Picture to “Shakespeare in Love” or when  Ang Lee failed to parlay his directing Oscar for “Brokeback Mountain” to a Best Picture win, it seemed a minor scandal. The recent exceptions to the rule – Alfonso Cuaron winning Best Director for “Gravity” while Best Picture went to “12 Years a Slave” and “Argo” winning Best Picture after its director Ben Affleck was left off the directing ballot altogether – seem to have emboldened Oscar handicappers to think of this year’s ballots for director and p »

Read More: Indiewire Awards Season Spotlight  After many losses, Emmanuel Lubezki finally won an Oscar two years ago for "Gravity," and then managed to do so again a year later for "Birdman." And it looks he could very well three-peat this year in a win that would be quite historic.

‘Zorro’ reboot falls to Gravity writer Jonas Cuaron

4 February 2016 11:02 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Zorro reboot will be written, produced and directed by Jonas Cuaron.

Jonas Cuaron will write the planned Zorro reboot. Cuaron is mostly known for his work on the Gravity screenplay, which he wrote with his father, Alfonso Cuaron back in 2013. The word on the street is that Cuaron will also direct and produce the project, currently being referred to as simply ‘Z’, for Lantica Media and Sobini Films.

The Zorro reboot will be Cuaron’s biggest project to date, after directing a couple of shorts (including one that tied in with Gravity‘s plot), the film Year Of The Nail, and the movie Desierto, which debuted at last year’s London Film Festival. We managed to catch the film at the festival, and we really quite enjoyed it. The film is essentially a cat-and-mouse movie set on the U.S./ Mexican border where Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s character is picking off illegal immigrants, »

Berlin: Jonas Cuaron Set to Helm Zorro Reboot ‘Z’

4 February 2016 1:15 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Gravity” co-scribe Jonas Cuaron is following his award-winning border thriller “Desierto” with “Z,” a reboot of “Zorro.”

Lantica Media and Sobini Films will co-produce the action thriller, set to begin principal photography in the summer at Lantica Media’s Pinewood Dominican Republic Studios, a state-of-the-art studio facility in the Dominican Republic. Pantelion Films will handle international sales, which kick off at the European Film Market in Berlin this month.

Cuaron will be writing his own vision of legendary masked vigilante, Zorro, but it will be set in the near future, said Sobini Films CEO Mark Amin. While the script is still being written, Amin projects a mid-range budget no less than $30 million but no more than $100 million. “We hope to use the studio’s water tank but are open to shooting in other locations outside of the Dominican Republic if the script calls for it,” he said.

Sony’s Zorro Reboot Will Have “Near-Future” Setting, Gravity Scribe Jonás Cuarón On Board To Direct

4 February 2016 12:36 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Citing Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight as inspiration, all signs pointed to Sony gunning for a post-apocalyptic aesthetic for Zorro Reborn. In the time that’s lapsed since we last caught wind of the studio’s masked bandit, it appears the project has been given a total overhaul, with plans now in place for the reboot to be rooted in the near-future.

That’s according to The Hollywood Reporter, revealing that Gravity co-writer Jonás Cuarón will write and direct the remake now formally known as Z. It’s by no means the only property to get the futuristic treatment under Sony, given the company is also whisking Robin Hood and his fellow men in tights into the not-so-distant future for a “revisionist” and “gritty” and “reimagining” and just about every other buzzword that comes to mind.

As for Zorro – sorry, Z – Cuarón is reportedly eyeing a summer start date, »

Jonás Cuarón to Direct Zorro Movie Entitled Z

4 February 2016 12:14 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Many of you likely know the name Alfonso Cuarón, the award-winning director of the science fiction film, Gravity, among other well-respected films. What you may not know is that his son, Jonás Cuarón is a filmmaker in his own right. Not only did the writer/director co-write the script for Gravity with his father, but he directed the companion short film Aningaaq. That particular film follows the man that Sandra Bullock's character talks to over the radio at one point in Gravity.

You can check that out below.

Admittedly, that particularly film didn't really add a whole lot to Gravity for me. In some ways, it kind of took away the magic of wondering who Bullock was talking to, and it also made it feel a lot more bitter in retrospect. But, Cuarón has continued on into features, bringing us the upcoming film Desierto, which has gotten pretty good »

'Gravity' Screenwriter Jonas Cuaron To Direct Zorro Movie 'Z'

4 February 2016 11:27 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Hollywood has really been trying to bring Zorro back to the big screen lately. Four years ago, Fox was developing a post-apocalyptic take on the character (wtf?), that would've starred Gael Garcia Bernal. Perhaps thankfully, that version never materialized. But it seems that the idea of taking the masked hero, who defends mid-19th century Los Angeles against tyranny and who has penchant for leaving his initial everywhere, and ill-advisedly putting him into the future is one that studio big shots can't shake, and so another a new project is coming together. Jonas Cuaron, who co-wrote "Gravity" and wrote and directed "Desierto" (starring Bernal), has been tasked with bringing "Z" to life. This version will be set in the near feature, but the basic concept of a masked dude righting the wrongs inflicted upon the common people will stay the same.

Jonas Cuaron To Helm A "Zorro" Reboot

4 February 2016 9:36 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Jonas Cuaron, Alfonso Cuaron's son who penned "Gravity" and recently wrote and directed "Desierto," has been hired to pen and direct a new take on Zorro.

"Z" will be produced by Lantica Media and Sobini Films, but there's little to no details on what approach Cuaron will take with the material.

Over the last few years the companies were developing "Zorro Reborn," a post-apocalyptic take on the myth of Zorro and follows a masked and caped stranger taking on tyrants in a Mad Max-style wasteland. Whether that will change with Cuaron's hiring is unclear, though if he's writing a new script expect at least some reworking of that premise.

Shooting will take place at Pinewood Dominican Republic Studios starting this Summer, and the project will be on sale at the European Film Market in Berlin this month. Mark Amin will produce.

‘The Revenant’ Cinematographer on Violence, Bear Attacks and Those Brutal Locations

3 February 2016 10:05 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki was 0-for-5 at the Oscars three years ago, despite having photographed such remarkable films as “A Little Princess,” “Children of Men” and “The Tree of Life.” But now, after winning back-to-back Oscars for “Gravity” and “Birdman,” the man everyone knows as “Chivo” is going for his third consecutive win, a record, for Alejandro G. Inarritu’s “The Revenant.” We’ve all heard about how difficult “The Revenant” was, and Alejandro told us, “It almost killed me.” Was it that tough for you? It was really, really, really tough. But it was not a surprise. We knew it when we were. »

Watch: 1-Hour Roundtable With Cinematographers Behind ‘The Hateful Eight,’ ‘Steve Jobs,’ and More

3 February 2016 5:22 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After giving our picks for the best cinematography of 2015, today brings conversation with some of the directors of photography from last year’s notable features. THR has gathered Robert Richardson (The Hateful Eight), Alwin Kuchler (Steve Jobs), Danny Cohen (The Danish Girl, Room), Linus Sandgren (Joy), Masanobu Takayanagi (Black Mass, Spotlight) and Mandy Walker (Truth) for a one-hour talk on their prcoess.

While it’s embarrassing that the trade couldn’t find room for Emmanuel Lubezki, Roger Deakins, Edward Lachman, Ping Bin Lee, Adam Arkapaw, John Seale, Maryse Alberti, and more, it’s interesting to hear about the experience of shooting 70mm for Quentin Tarantino‘s western from Richardson, as well as why he took his name off World War Z. Check out the full roundtable below, and Richardson’s thoughts on getting awards for CG-heavy cinematography.

I wish there were two categories for Academy Awards. There are films that are shot relatively normal, »

Exclusive: Alfonso Cuarón & Alejandro G. Iñárritu Endorse Emiliano Rocha Minter's 'We Are The Flesh'

2 February 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Sydney's Buzz | See recent Sydney's Buzz news »

The next generation of Mexican filmmakers, Julio Chavezmontes of Piano Films, and Moises Cosio of Detalle Films, executive producer of Atom Egoyan’s “Remember," Jodorowsky’s “The Dance of Reality,” and Apichatpong Weersethaku’s “Cemetery of Splendor,” are premiering "We Are The Flesh” ("Tenemos la carne") in Iff Rotterdam’s Bright Future Section.

The directorial debut by 25-year-old Emiliano Rocha Minter has the support of Academy Award-winning directors Alejandro González Iñárritu (“Amores Perros”) and Alfonso Cuarón (“Gravity), with Cannes-winning director Carlos Reygadas ("Silent Light", "Post Tenebras Lux”) involved as a co-producer. This makes "Tenemos la carne"/ "We are the Flesh" the first Mexican film, let alone a feature debut, to receive the endorsement of three of the most important directors working today. That is a film to see! It will also be on offer at the Berlinale’s Efm by its international sales agent, Reel Suspects.

In addition to Reygadas, Mexican director Sebastian Hofmann, of the Sundance New Frontier film "Halley," Yann Gonzalez, French director director of Cannes Critics’ Week Special Screening “You and the Night,” and Splendor Omnia’s Natalia Lopez, are co-producers of the film. Mexican associate producers are Simplemente’s Rune Hansen, Monica Reina and Celia Iturraga. "We Are The Flesh" was supported by the Mexican Film Institute's (Imcine) Foprocine fund.

"We Are the Flesh" takes place in a post-apocalyptic Mexico in which a brother and sister find their way into one of the last remaining buildings after years of wandering. Inside, they find a man who makes them a dangerous offer to survive in the outside world. You can view the trailer below:

‘Revenant’ Cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki Remembers His First Oscar Nomination

29 January 2016 10:56 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With Oscars for “Gravity” and “Birdman” already in his pocket, cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki could be on track to win a third in a row, for his natural-light lensing of Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s “The Revenant.” It would tie costume designer Edith Head’s record for features (Walt Disney gobbled up eight consecutive gold men in the animated short category in the ’30s) and perhaps be further evidence that, as one director said to me recently, the greatest filmmaker in the world might well be a lenser.

The day of the Oscar nominations announcement, Lubezki was typically modest in celebrating the achievement of his crew (the film was nominated in 12 categories) while expressing awe at how lucky he is to work with the caliber of filmmakers he has in recent years. He was particularly enamored by the nominated work in his own field, where examples of 16mm, 70mm and digital photography »

Our Brand Is Crisis movie review: unearned (and unneeded) sentiment

27 January 2016 1:49 PM, PST | | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A protagonist who revels in the sheer cynicism of her job gets a sentimental redemption out of nowhere; Sandra Bullock’s comedic chops are undercut by it. I’m “biast” (pro): love Sandra Bullock

I’m “biast” (con): …though I often hate her movie choices

I have not seen the source material

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

So here’s the thing. Movie protagonists don’t necessarily have to be likable. But they do have to comprehensible. We have to understand what the central character of a story wants. Does she want to rule the world? Does she want to blow up the world? Fine. Just give us a story that takes us along on that journey.

But this Our Brand Is Crisis movie… I never got it. I never understood what is supposed to be motivating political strategist “Calamity” Jane Bodine (Sandra Bullock: Minions, »
