Paul Thomas Anderson’s Best Scenes, Ranked

14 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Paul Thomas Anderson is one of the most revered American filmmakers of the last 20 years in part because he’s so unclassifiable. Working in a range of genres while tackling subjects that skew from anger management to American capitalism, religion and porn, Anderson has built a filmography distinguished by its unpredictability — and the sheer originality he brings to each new effort. Beyond the stories that distinguish his movies are the many ways in which they immerse viewers in fully defined worlds.

Every Anderson movie is an absorbing experience loaded with strange, funny, and shocking moments, all of which speak to the agenda of an artist keen on pushing the medium beyond its most familiar forms.

Cannes Winning Best Actor and Lanthimos' Quirky 'Family' Thriller Academy Award Chances?

20 June 2017 7:38 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'120 Beats per Minute' trailer: Robin Campillo's AIDS movie features plenty of drama and a clear sociopolitical message. AIDS drama makes Pedro Almodóvar cry – but will Academy members tear up? (See previous post re: Cannes-Oscar connection.) In case France submits it to the 2018 Best Foreign Language Film Oscar, screenwriter-director Robin Campillo's AIDS drama 120 Beats per Minute / 120 battements par minute, about the Paris Act Up chapter in the early 1990s, could quite possibly land a nomination. The Grand Prix (Cannes' second prize), international film critics' Fipresci prize, and Queer Palm winner offers a couple of key ingredients that, despite its gay sex scenes, should please a not insignificant segment of the Academy membership: emotionalism and a clear sociopolitical message. When discussing the film after the presentation of the Palme d'Or, Pedro Almodóvar (and, reportedly, jury member Jessica Chastain) broke into tears. Some believed, in fact, that 120 Beats per Minute »

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

Thom Yorke Is ‘Absolutely Terrified’ To Be Composing His First Original Score For ‘Suspiria’

8 June 2017 2:28 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Whether you think remaking Dario Argento’s Italian horror classic “Suspiria” is good idea or not, there’s no denying just how enticing the new version looks on paper. Not only is Luca Guadagnino behind the camera, and not only does the ensemble cast include his “A Bigger Splash” stars Tilda Swinton and Dakota Johnson, but the movie has also recruited Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke to compose his first original movie score.

Thew news of Yorke’s involvement broke last month, and it was especially exciting given how much success his bandmate Johnny Greenwood has had when it comes to movie scores. Greenwood has been behind the original scores for “There Will Be Blood,” “The Master,” “We Need to Talk About Kevin” and more, and there’s no reason Yorke shouldn’t be able to »

The Cannes Film Festival Buyers Guide: Who’s Buying the Movies You’ll Watch

15 May 2017 1:02 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Buyers return to Cannes like swallows to the Capistranos, but this year they’ll find a hostile landscape. Too many buyers, too few titles, and streaming-service disruptors are driving up prices all the while, making North American prebuys increasingly necessary.

That’s hazardous terrain: Witness the Weinstein Company’s $6 million bid for transgender drama “3 Generations” (aka “After Ray”). Two years later, after a title change and poor reviews on and off the festival circuit, the drama starring Elle Fanning and Susan Sarandon finally received a May 5 release. Total domestic gross to date: $46,421.

That was in 2015, the last year that TWC held its then-annual dog-and-pony show for buyers and press at the Majestic Hotel. This year, like the last, they’ll hold court on their yacht, which also serves as their offices — still tony, but on a budget; it’s a lot less expensive than that prime Croissette real estate. Meanwhile, »

Great Job, Internet!: This look at film shots could affect the way you watch movies

15 May 2017 11:18 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The YouTube channel CineFix bills itself as “the ultimate destination for true movie buffs & filmmakers.” It also serves as a kind of mini-film class for regular movie fans who may want to know more about what they’re watching. CineFix has already released a video on the five most popular shots in moviedom, and has just submitted its follow-up, the “Best Shots Of All Time - Part 2.”

The next five shots are ones that you’ll recognize, even if you don’t automatically know their names, like the “over-the-shoulder shot,” in which the camera is positioned behind someone who’s looking at someone else, or what CineFix dubs the “dual layer” shot, basically the “over-the-shoulder” with the closer person turned around. The video also uses less-textbook-familiar movies to depict these examples, like a two-person shot featuring Joaquin Phoenix in The Master or a claustrophobic dual-layer shot in Ingmar Bergman ...

Radiohead Frontman Thom Yorke Will Score Suspiria Remake Soundtrack

11 May 2017 4:19 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Thom Yorke will compose the score for upcoming remake of Dario Argento's 1977 cult favorite Suspiria. Italian director Luca Guadagnino (Call Me By Your Name, I Am Love) will direct the new version of the horror classic. These are going to be some mighty big shoes to fill for Yorke and Guadagnino as the score and lighting, respectively are arguably two of the most iconic features of the original Suspiria. Guadagnino has teased that he will be taking a different approach to the coloring, making it "cold, evil, and really dark." So what is Yorke's score going to sound like?

Yorke is best known for his work as the lead singer/multi-instrumentalist from Radiohead, in addition to his solo work and Atoms for Peace. He will be scoring the remake on his own. Though only speculation, the sounds of Yorke's Prophet 08 synthesizer will fit the bill perfectly. But Yorke is »

Radiohead’s Thom Yorke pops his musical score cherry to compose on the remake of Suspiria

11 May 2017 6:23 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

The reimagining of Dario Argento’s cult horror classic Suspiria, which is to be helmed by Luca Guadagnino, has found its musical muse to work on the score for the film: Radiohead’s very own Thom Yorke.

Yorke is best known as the singer and main songwriter for Radiohead, is diving in on what will be a first in his career. His fellow bandmate Jonny Greenwood has scored films such as There Will be Blood and The Master, and Suspiria will mark a new stage in Yorke’s musical career.

The remake is set in 1977 Berlin and follows a young American woman (Dakota Johnson) who joins a prestigious dance company. She arrives just as one of the members mysteriously disappears and begins to suspect that the dance troupe is harbouring a disturbing secret. Tilda Swinton, Chloë Grace Moretz, Mia Goth and Jessica Harper also star.

Sleepless review

5 May 2017 7:35 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A French thriller gets the remake treatment, starring Jamie Foxx and Michelle Monaghan. Here's our review of the rather silly Sleepless...

Constructing a decent thriller's like building a house of cards: get it right, and you have something that stands by itself. Make a mistake, and the whole thing collapses in a heap. Sleepless, a remake of a French thriller, Sleepless Night, in turn adapted from a novel by Frederic Jardin, is one of those frustrating genre films that, after half-an-hour or so of decent construction, starts to wobble before your very eyes.

The set-up is this: Jamie Foxx plays a Las Vegas cop, Vincent Downs, who's robbed a huge stash of cocaine as part of an undercover investigation into his own precinct. Determined to get their drugs back, some ruthless gangsters stab Vincent in the gut and kidnap his son as leverage. Meanwhile, Internal Affairs officer Jennifer Bryant (Michelle Monaghan »

Celebrate National Look-Alike Day with these 7 famous doppelgängersCelebrate National Look-Alike Day with these 7 famous doppelgängersAdriana Floridia4/20/2017 9:40:00 Am

Today is National Look-Alike day, and so naturally we're here to take a look at some startlingly similar actors and actresses in film.

Have you ever watched a movie thinking it was one actor on screen, only to realize later that it was actually someone who just looked a lot like them? We've been there, and we'll admit that we've mixed up these actors before. Who hasn't thought that Frodo was Harry, and Harry was Frodo? We've also confused Gandalf and Dumbledore, but we're trying to put that one behind us. 

The following actors could quite possibly be related, if we looked at their ancestral charts. If that's not the case then we can't explain the phenomenon of their nearly identical likenesses. We wish we had a celebrity twin.
