Here is the plot summary: In June 1944, allied Forces stand on the brink: a million soldiers are secretly assembled on the south coast of Britain, poised to invade Nazi-occupied Europe. Exhausted by years of war and plagued by depression, Churchill is a shadow of the hero who has resisted Hitler’s Blitzkrieg. Should the D-Day landings fail, he is terrified he’ll be remembered as the architect of carnage.

Journal (6.6.16 - 1.10.17)

The latest installment in the filmmaker's series of journal-films combining iPhone footage and sounds and images from movies. A diary penned with cinema.Journal (6.6.16 - 1.10.17)feat. additional footage from Masha Tupitsyn and Isiah MedinaMy journal-film series (of which this is the third installment) came to be as a means of resolving the points of convergence and departure amongst the environments I occupy and those which I encounter in cinema. I like to view these films as a method of managing the images that take up my thoughts and memories into a new continuity, one in which the distinction between images seen on-screen and those personally experienced is no longer absolute.    In dissolving this partition, these films provide a vector for the animation conceptual concerns through cinema - montage fulfilling that which language can only formally describe and vice versa.

Someone to Watch Over Me: Spielberg and Surveillance

15 March 2017 2:02 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Exploring the director’s fascination with spying.

The cinema of Steven Spielberg is one that’s built around fascination and a need to understand. As a director he is an explorer, but not one interested in unearthing grand artifacts, rather one in search of intimate treasures, an explorer of explorers, so to speak, someone to whom the process of discovery is much more interesting than the discoveries themselves.

As such, his films are rife with surveillance, characters spying on or otherwise surreptitiously watching other characters, tracking their behavior, their actions, their being, for the purposes of gathering information, good and bad. Think of the Nazis on the trail of Indiana Jones in Raiders of the Lost Ark peering over newspapers, or the future crime detectives in Minority Report scanning time for illegalities, or the government scientists after E.T. creeping about suburbia.

Spielberg is constantly exploring surveillance and the various mindsets behind it, and »

Steven Spielberg has always done a fine job of rotating between his entertainments and his more serious pictures. After all, we’re talking about a filmmaker who somehow managed to release Jurassic Park and Schindler’s List in the same year. Note how he balanced The Adventures of Tintin with War Horse and Bridge of Spies with The Bfg. It’s no […]

13 films that could be in the running for an Oscar in 2018

28 February 2017 12:07 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Like it or not, the awards race 2018 is already underway.

Painful as it may sound, the awards marathon is at least a 12-month proposition these days. With Sundance in the rear-view mirror, the talk of potential 2018 Oscar candidates is already underway in industry circles.

Below, Screen runs through 13 films that could be heading to the dance this time next year (the Oscars will be held one week later in 2018, on March 4).

Downsizing

Matt Damon, Kristen Wiig and Christoph Waltz (all previously nominated) star in awards perennial Alexander Payne’s social satire in which a man realizes he would have a better life if he were to shrink himself. Currently in post-production, the film is slated for a December 22 release through Paramount, which is financing. Payne’s last six films have been Oscar-nominated.

La La Land’ and ‘Hacksaw Ridge’ (Courtesy: Lionsgate; Summit Entertainment)

By: Carson Blackwelder

Managing Editor

The best sound editing category is going to be tough to call at this year’s Oscars, but the race is boiling down to Hacksaw Ridge versus La La Land. While we won’t know who won the Academy’s favor until Sunday, we already know the Motion Picture Sound Editors have honored these two films — among others — at their annual Golden Reel Awards. How often does this society of sound editors predict the corresponding category at the Academy Awards? Let’s take a look and find out.

Nominated alongside Hacksaw Ridge and La La Land in the best sound editing category at this year’s Oscars are Arrival, Sully, and Deepwater Horizon. The Hollywood Reporter’s Scott Feinberg predicts that Damien Chazelle’s modern musical will take home the trophy by overtaking Mel Gibson’s big Hollywood return. »

Inside No. 9 series 3: “We’re not sadists!”

13 February 2017 7:42 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Louisa Mellor Feb 14, 2017

Ace anthology series Inside No. 9 returns next week for its third run. Here’s what its creators had to say at the press launch…

Having made audiences wince at characters put through all manner of horrors—murder, suicide, demonic possession—sadism would seem a fair accusation to level at Inside No. 9’s creators. It doesn’t stand of course, because the show’s so good that it’s all pleasure and no pain. Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith don’t seek to make people suffer in writing the series. “I wouldn’t say that’s what we enjoy, we’re not sadists!” Pemberton laughs at the series three press launch. “For us, it’s all about the narrative and taking that half-hour we have for each episode and weaving the story that takes you on the biggest journey.”

Series three of Inside No. 9 arrives on BBC Two on Tuesday the 21st of February. Keep your eyes peeled for this little detail…

Inside No. 9 episodes always merit watching twice, whether simply for the joy of the show’s surprising, original storytelling or to re-evaluate what you’ve seen in the light of a clever final twist.

Review: The 2017 Oscar-Nominated Short Films: Documentary

Ahead of the Academy Awards, we’re reviewing each short category. See the Documentary section below and the other shorts sections here.

4.1 Miles – USA/Greece – 26 minutes

While Trump’s administration unconstitutionally discriminates against Muslims from countries he doesn’t do business with, heroes are risking their lives to protect those who need protecting. One of these is Kyriakos Papadopoulos, a Greek Coast Guard captain from the island of Lebos who goes out into the choppy waters of the Aegean Sea to rescue refugees braving the four-mile distance from Turkey. He says that they go out every hour to pull in about two hundred innocent survivors of war, the numbers adding up to around 600,000 between 2015 and 2016 alone. Smugglers take their money, put them on boats they know won’t protect against the waves, and send them away. If not for Kyriakos and the others, these 600,000 would all be dead.

Film Quality Is Subjective: A Film Is Good Because We Say It Is

5 February 2017 9:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Graeme Robertson on why film quality is subjective…

It’s a wonderful job being a film critic. Being able to watch films and write about them all hours of the day and night, discussing them with your fellow critics and generally have a merry old time talking about how wonderful it is to be a film critic.

Although when we disagree on something that’s when the fights start, with critics climbing into the steel cages ready to defend the honour of the films that they proclaim to be the best against the wretched scum who think otherwise.

Or something a bit less dramatic than that, like a polite discussion or a particularly stern talk over a pint or two.

Recently my Flickering colleague Samuel Brace penned an article (which you should all read by the way) in which he argued that with regards to films, “Quality is very much objective. »

Important War Films From Our Lifetime

25 January 2017 8:03 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

By Sofia Smith-Londono.

War films are often great sprawling stories of sacrifice, heroism, the atrocities and intricacies of war. For many of us, these visceral, telling tales of war are as close as we’ll get, but behind the camera lies an important story of a real life event that has to be told.

Mel Gibson’s new film Hacksaw Ridge out in cinemas on 26th January displays the horror of war and one man’s determination to put a little bit of the world back together again. This is the story of Desmond Doss (BAFTA nominated Andrew Garfield) how he overcame monumental adversity and how he miraculously saved 75 men at the Battle of Okinawa without carrying a weapon

Saving Private Ryan (1998)

Steven Spielberg brings to light the reality of one of the bloodiest wars and most brutal scenes in recent history. The film opens on 6th June 1944, D-Day with the allied invasion of Normandy. »

La La Land and 13 Other Best Picture Frontrunners That Missed the Outstanding Cast Nod at the SAGs

24 January 2017 9:36 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

If you’ve tuned in for even a second of awards season this year, you know that La La Land is the film to watch. It swept the Golden Globes, taking home seven awards (which, by the way, set a new record for the most Globes won by a single film, ever) and tied the record for most Academy Award nominations received by a single film — 14. But will it do the same at this weekend’s Screen Actors Guild Awards? Not likely — in fact, the Best Picture contender isn’t even in the running for the SAG equivalent, outstanding cast in a motion picture. »

London "Angels In America" Revival Coming to Cinemas!

17 January 2017 5:00 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Chris here, reminding you about an important revival coming across the pond. Tony Kushner's beloved Angels in America is getting a new production in London this spring, with probable Hacksaw Ridge Oscar nominee Andrew Garfield. But wait - it's also coming to cinemas!

The National Theatre production will be broadcast this summer with Part 1 on July 20 and Part 2 on July 21.  Garfield will play Prior Walter, but he's not the only star power in the production. Joining him will be Russell Tovey and Nathan Lane as Joe Pitt and Roy Cohn, respectively. All of this casting feels slightly off for my Angels-obsessive mind, but that's not enough to diminish my excitement! Here's a first look at the cast, which also includes James McArdle and Denise Gough:

The National Theatre has had several productions shown in cinemas, such as War Horse and Helen Mirren in The Audience. Have you seen »

The Duchess of Cambridge turns 35 on Jan. 9, and Prince William, Prince George, and Princess Charlotte are sure to have big plans on how to make her big day special. So how has Kate celebrated in previous years? As she evolved from girl about town to princess-in-waiting and mum of two, the way she's chosen to mark her day is an indication of what else was happening in her life at that time, as well as giving insight into what makes her tick. 2006 On her 24th birthday - around two years into her relationship with William - Kate celebrated with her family, but her prince was nowhere to be seen.

Art Director's Guild Nominations

5 January 2017 1:00 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

The Art Director's Guild can give us a taste of what's to come for Oscar but that's the reductive way of looking at it. By having multiple categories they give us a much better sense of what these craftsmen thought of the work done in any given film year... or at least told us which screeners they caught up with. Instead of 5 annual nominees like the Oscars, they have 15. Or in this year's case 16 titles (there was a tie in "period film").

Midnight In Paris won a surprise Academy nomination for Production Design (without an Adg nomination). Might Cafe Society (which *has* an Adg nomination) make the Oscar list despite a current low profile?

Which will go on to Oscar? (I'll have to rethink our chart which has four films which didn't score with the Adg in the top ten though one of them, The Handmaiden, still feels possible as »
