Nick Cave-Andrew Dominik ready music film 'One More Time With Feeling'

3 June 2016 9:08 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Feature will include the first chance to hear songs from upcoming Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds album.

Musician Nick Cave has teamed with director Andrew Dominik for One More Time With Feeling, a feature that will include the first opportunity anyone will have to hear songs from Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds 16th studio album, Skeleton Tree.

The film will be distributed to more than 650 cinemas around the world by Picturehouse Entertainment on September 8, prior to the release of the album the following day.

Originally a performance based concept, One More Time With Feeling will explore the writing and recording of the album and delve into its tragic backdrop (Cave’s 15-year-old son, Arthur, died in July 2015 after falling from a cliff).

Interwoven throughout the Bad Seeds’ filmed performance of the new album are interviews and footage shot by Dominik, accompanied by Cave’s narration.

New Zealand-born Australian film director Dominik is best known for Chopper, [link »

Andrew Dominik’s 10 Favorite Films

27 May 2016 11:40 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Across his three features this century, Andrew Dominik has explored masculine ideals (and the lack thereof) with an uncompromising vision. While earning the most acclaim for his stunning western The Assassination of Jesse James By the Coward Robert Ford, his follow-up Killing Them Softly is also distinctive in its laser-focused fury, getting the impressive distinction of an “F” CinemaScore to cement it as something truly special. His long-gestating next feature, Blonde, is hopefully still happening (the last we heard, Netflix may back it and shooting could begin as early as this year), but as we wait for confirmation, today we’re looking at his favorite films of all-time.

Courtesy of his Sight & Sound ballot, it’s a primarily American-focused line-up with classics from Francis Ford Coppola, Martin Scorsese, Billy Wilder, and David Lynch (x2). Perhaps most interesting is his favorite Alfred Hitchcock film, one of the man’s last five features: Marnie, »

Cinemascore and exit polling in Hollywood: what is it?

If a film gets a Cinemascore of B or C, it's often classed as a disappointment. But what is a Cinemascore?

The process of marketing a movie is now an operation that lasts many months across all sorts of media, from bus stop posters to social media campaigns, all in pursuit of making sure the movie makes an impact in its opening weekend. Tracking and analytics can give an indication of how audiences are responding before the movie even hits cinemas, but it's only in that opening weekend, once they've actually seen the movie, that you can get a more accurate read on public opinion.

Box office aside, one way in which Hollywood's studios reads public response after release is Cinemascore, the Las Vegas-based market research firm which conducts nationwide exit polls. Billed as “Hollywood's Benchmark”, the company's researchers gathers information from filmgoers and the results, expressed as letter grades, »

Cannes archives: Screen's Jury Grid 2012 - winners and losers

4 May 2016 11:00 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

As Cannes approaches, Screen casts its eye back at the winners and losers of 2012 according to our jury of critics.

Screen International’s jury of international critics has long been a strong indicator as to what will take the top prizes at the Cannes Film Festival – and 2012 was no different.

Sharing the Jury Grid’s top spot in 2012 were Cristian Mungiu’s Romanian drama Beyond the Hills and Michael Haneke’s heart-breaking Amour.

Both films scored 3.3 out of 4 and Amour went away with the festival’s coveted Palme d’Or.

Amour was Haneke’s second film to win the Cannes top prize, after 2009’s chilling pre-war drama The White Ribbon.

Beyond the Hills also performed strongly, winning awards for best screenplay and best actress for its two leading ladies Cristina Flutur and Cosmina Stratan. Director Mungiu has another shot at the Palme d’Or this year with Graduation (Bacalaureat).

Bloodline Season 1 Out On DVD Now

29 March 2016 1:32 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

March 21st sees the home release of the critically acclaimed American thriller Bloodline – Season 1. Produced by Sony Pictures as a 13 episode Netflix Original series, the story centres on the Rayburn family who own and manage a beachside hotel in the Florida Keys. To mark the 45th anniversary of their reputable and well-respected business, the Rayburns are being celebrated with the dedication of a local pier being given in their honour.

A seemingly respectable and upstanding family within the community, the return of the Rayburn’s oldest son, Danny, to take part in the festivities doesn’t raise any eyebrows. However Danny’s return isn’t so welcome among the family, who see him as a threat to their carefully constructed facade; a facade which hides a dark and murky past.

Debuting at the 65th Berlin International Film Festival in 2015 the series instantly gained rave reviews for it’s tense and gripping overtones, »

Blu-ray Review – The Friends of Eddie Coyle (1973)

24 January 2016 9:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Friends of Eddie Coyle, 1973.

Directed by Peter Yates.

Starring Robert Mitchum, Peter Boyle, Richard Jordan, Steven Keats, Alex Rocco, Joe Santos and Mitchell Ryan.

Synopsis:

After his last crime has him looking at a long prison sentence for repeat offenses, a low level Boston gangster decides to snitch on his friends to avoid jail time.

Eddie Coyle is a small time gun runner for an organised crime outfit in Boston. He knows the game. He knows when to keep his mouth shut and what happens to those who do not. They call him ‘Fingers’ due to an incident with his hand, an open drawer, and someone’s foot closing that draw on his hand. It’s a constant reminder of the life he chose.

We enter the film with Eddie in trouble; caught smuggling contraband and it’s not his first time which means another stretch in jail. But Eddie is 51 years old, »
