J. Hoberman’s Best Movies of the 21st Century

20 June 2017 2:50 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

There have been a lot of lists about the best films of the 21st century. IndieWire has been digging through the last two decades one genre at a time; meanwhile, the New York Times’ top movie critics provided their own takes. J. Hoberman, the longtime Village Voice film critic who now works as a freelancer, decided to join the fray. Here’s his take, also available at his site, and republished here with permission. 

People have been asking me, so I thought I might as well join (or crash) the party initiated by the New York Times and put in my two cents regarding the 25 Best Films of the 21st Century (so far). I don’t see “everything” anymore and I haven’t been to Cannes since 2011.

There is some overlap but this is not the same as the proposed 21-film syllabus of 21st Century cinema included in my book “Film After Film.” Those were all in their way pedagogical choices. Begging the question of what “best” means, these are all movies that I really like, that I’m happy to see multiple times, that are strongly of their moment and that I think will stand the test of time.

My single “best” film-object is followed by a list of 11 filmmakers and one academic production company (in order of “best-ness”) responsible for two or more “best films,” these followed by another eight individual movies (again in order) and finally four more tentatively advanced films (these alphabetical). I’m sure I’m forgetting some but that’s the nature of the beast.

Christian Marclay: “The Clock

Lars von Trier: “Dogville” & “Melancholia” (and none of his others)

Hou Hsiao Hsien: “The Assassin” & “Flight of the Red Balloon

Jean-Luc Godard: “In Praise of Love” & “Goodbye to Language”

David Cronenberg: “Spider,” “A History of Violence,” “Eastern Promises,” & “A Dangerous Method

David Lynch: “Mulholland Drive” & “Inland Empire

Ken Jacobs: “Seeking the Monkey King,” “The Guests” (and more)

Cristi Puiu: “The Death of Mr Lazarescu” & “Aurora

Chantal Akerman: “No Home Movie” & “La Captive” (assuming that 2000 is part of the 21st Century)

Paul Thomas Anderson: “The Master” & “There Will Be Blood

Kathryn Bigelow: “The Hurt Locker” & “Zero Dark Thirty

Alfonso Cuarón: “Gravity” & “Children of Men

Sensory Ethnology Lab: “Leviathan,” “Manakamana,” & “People’s Park”

“The Strange Case of Angelica” — Manoel de Oliviera

“Corpus Callosum” — Michael Snow

“West of the Tracks” — Wang Bing

“Carlos” — Olivier Assayas

“Che” — Steven Soderbergh

“Ten” — Abbas Kariostami

“Russian Ark” — Aleksandr Sokurov

“The World” — Jia Zhangke

Citizenfour” — Laura Poitras

Day Night Day Night” — Julia Loktev

“Once Upon a Time in Anatolia” — Nuri Bilge Ceylan

Wall-e” — Andrew Stanton

Ed Harris’ ‘Westworld’ Turn Was A Perfect Late-Career Move For One of Our Best Actors — Career Watch

5 June 2017 12:30 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Welcome to Career Watch, a vocational checkup of top actors and directors, and those who hope to get there. In this edition we take on Ed Harris, who’s doing what he’s always done: owning character roles in film, theater and television.

Bottom Line: Harris has an iconic masculine American gravitas. The camera loves him and you can count on Harris to deliver a character’s emotional spine with subtle and sturdy grace. That’s why this hard-working actor never falls out of demand. And he seemingly can do anything, whether stalwart hero (John Glenn in “The Right Stuff” or the Mission Control voice in “Apollo 13” or “Gravity”) or contemptible villain (see “The Firm,” “Enemy at the Gates,” “Swing Shift,” or “The Rock”).

Director Peter Weir (“The Truman Show,” “The Way Back”) once told me that shooting Harris is “spiritual, a man that has a past and regrets, »

Paddington 2 Trailer Has the Iconic Bear Going Back to Work

30 May 2017 10:44 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just days after The Weinstein Company set a January 2018 release date for the upcoming sequel Paddington 2, the studio had unveiled the first teaser trailer for this upcoming sequel. Along with the trailer, The Weinstein Company has also unveiled the first nine photos featuring Paddington Bear, along with a first look at new characters Knuckles McGinty (Brendan Gleeson), Phoenix Buchanan (Hugh Grant) and the returning members of the Brown family.

The Weinstein Company debuted this new trailer earlier today, which opens with Paddington Bear starting his new job as a window cleaner, but it doesn't go too well. After realizing that he can't lift the bucket of soapy water needed to clean these windows up the ladder, he devises a pulley system of sorts, which doesn't work out as planned for this beloved bear. This trailer also gives us a glimpse of Peter Capaldi's Mr. Curry, who returns from the original movie, »

25 May 2017 10:58 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Alfonso Cuarón taught a packed-out masterclass at Cannes yesterday, where the Mexican filmmaker spoke about his beginnings in film, his friendship with Guillermo del Toro and directing “Gravity” and “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.” The conversation, led by French film critic Michel Ciment, was the second of two masterclasses offered at the festival, following the one given by Clint Eastwood last Sunday.

The Academy Award winner spoke about how for him filmmaking started as just a means of survival. “I come from a middle-class family and I grew up at a time when the golden age of cinema was over in Mexico. Cinema was my survival instinct, I needed it. I wouldn’t recommend the path I took to anyone,” he said, according to the official Cannes site.

Cannes: Alfonso Cuarón On Del Toro, ‘Chivo’ And Giving It All He’s Got

25 May 2017 1:47 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In Cannes Wednesday. Alfonso Cuarón gave a Masterclass spanning his life and passions: Friendships and films, made in both Mexico and Hollywood.

As Cuarón gave the class, he said, proving humble throughout his interview with Michel Simon, that the “true masters” were elsewhere in the festival, hinting that he doesn’t count himself among them. He pointed out that his was “a journey filled with insecurities,” which he considers a catalyst for his friendship with fellow Mexican filmmaker Guillermo del Toro, who Cuarón called a fellow “blue collar” filmmaker.

The two met making TV when del Toro complimented the Steven King story which Cuarón had based one of his pieces on, commenting that, “The story is so good, so why did your short suck so bad?” Although the words surprised Cuarón he says del Toro was right, and since then the two have been fast friends.

Your Face Or Mine: a dating show that's rotten to the core

20 May 2017 2:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Jimmy Carr and Katherine Ryan’s revived gameshow could easily be mistaken for an episode of Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror

There is a moment near the end of this week’s Your Face Or Mine – a revival of a short-lived early-00s gameshow in which couples rate each other for their hotness – where we get to see a man’s heart smashed to pieces.

When Louis, a sweet-natured twentysomething with red hair and a defeated grin, is informed by his girlfriend of two years, Aida, that he has a confidence problem – this, after she has announced that she didn’t fancy him in the early days, that he has weird teeth, that she might not be his girlfriend for ever and she would totally bang Harvey from So Solid Crew – he gets a look in his eyes similar to Sandra Bullock’s in Gravity when she realises she is alone in space. »

Brett Ratner in Cannes: 'Television is obviously the future'

19 May 2017 2:37 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Us producer and director delivered a keynote at the festival today.

In his keynote address at the Winston Baker Film Financing Forum today (May 19), an ebullient Brett Ratner revealed just how he rescued Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Oscar winner The Revenant when it went over budget; why he will soon be returning to directing; his plans to enter the TV business in a major way; and why he thinks Vr is ideal for porn.

Ratner isn’t just a filmmaker whose own movies have grossed over $2bn. He’s also a prolific producer and film financier - and a co-founder of RatPac Entertainment together with Australian businessman James Packer.

“Nobody really in Hollywood can figure out how I did this. They don’t understand,” Rattner said of his unlikely metamorphosis from director into “mogul” (a description he hates). His friend and Rush Hour star Jackie Chan calls him “the luckiest motherfucker in the world”.

Alfonso Cuarón Directs ‘Roma’ in First Behind-the-Scenes Footage

15 May 2017 8:23 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Today brings some good and some bad news when it comes to the next film from Alfonso Cuarón. First up, we’ll deal with the latter: once imagined to be a fall 2017 premiere, it looks like Roma won’t get a release until 2018. As for the good news, our first official behind-the-scenes look at the film has arrived.

His Gravity follow-up is a small-scale drama that chronicles a year in the life of a middle-class family in Mexico City in the early 1970s. “[Guillermo del Toro] told me that certain movies are like a box of cereal with prize included, because when you’re a kid, you end it all up to know what you got,” the director recently said. “Gravity was for me that little toy and I made the decision to use it to go back to Mexico and make the film I had always dreamed of.”

The Best Of The Best – The Greatest Cinematographers and the Films that made them great

12 May 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Dave Roper

So, we come to the end of this particular series. We’ve covered a number of aspects of the creative input into film-making, including actors, actresses, writers composers, and directors (in two parts). We’ve stopped short of costume, make-up, special effects, art design and others, however our final stop is Cinematography. The Dop exerts plenty of influence over the look of the film. Yes, lighting, production design and the director’s vision are key too, but the consistency and persistence with which certain directors stick with and return to a trusted Dop shows just how much they contribute.

Darius KhondjiSeven

Seven has a unique visual aesthetic. Plenty of films have gone for the “always raining, always dark” approach, but contrast Seven with something like AvP: Requiem for a shining example of how hard it is to pull off effectively. And contrast is the word. Seven »

Emmanuel Lubezki Video Essay ‘Making Beautiful Movies’ Pays Tribute to the Master Cinematographer — Watch

5 May 2017 10:38 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

While presenting Emmanuel Lubezki with the Best Cinematography prize at the 2014 Lafca Awards, Kirk Honeycutt referred to the celebrated Dp as an auteur. That designation is usually reserved for directors, but in “Chivo’s” case it fits — few artists’ or technicians’ work is so immediately recognizable. James Hayes would likely agree, as he’s put together a new video essay called “Emmanuel Lubezki: Making Beautiful Movies.” Watch it below.

The video includes clips from Lubezki’s best-known work, including “The Revenant,” “Children of Men,” “Gravity” and “The Tree of Life.” Hayes draws attention to Lubezki’s use of lighting to create a sense of realism as well as his affinity for low angles, narrating as he goes: “What Chivo does is something different,” he says of those low angles. “It’s a »

Downsizing” Sure to go down as Alexander Payne’s most bizarre film. Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig as a couple who decide to shrink themselves in order to live the good life. The 10 minutes that screened were out there, but hilarious and compelling. (Paramount)

Baywatch” A gag where Zac Efron’s dim bulb life guard examines a dead man’s genitals is worth the price of admission. (Paramount)
