What Should I Watch Instead of The Inauguration?

17 January 2017 9:25 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Dear FSRWe’re all trying to escape, so what’s our best bet?

At some point in your life, you’ve likely been faced with a question that has no solid answer. Some people may take such a puzzle to a trusted confidant, a friendly pastor, or the esteemed annals of Yahoo! Answers. But will they have the expertise needed to solve your most pressing film predicaments?

Think of Dear Fsr as an impartial arbiter for all your film concerns. Boyfriend texting while you’re trying to show him your most precious Ozu? What’s the best way to confront the guy who snuck that pungent curry into your cramped theater? This is an advice column for film fans, by a film fan.

Dear Fsr,On Friday, January 20th, Americans will be bombarded by the inauguration of Donald Trump. Lord knows I don’t want to watch it when half our representatives and senators don’t even »

Oscar This: A small, character-based documentary isn’t “important” enough for the Academy

15 January 2017 10:00 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

This year’s Oscar nominations will be announced on January 24. Will the Academy uphold conventional wisdom or think outside of the box? With Oscar This, we highlight unlikely candidates—the dark horses we’d love to see compete.

Back in December, the Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Science announced the 15 films that’ll be competing for the Best Documentary Oscars, and it’s hard to find much fault with what’s on the shortlist. I Am Not Your Negro, O.J.: Made In America, Tower, Weiner, 13th, Fire At Sea… these are all outstanding films, examining serious problems. No one would (or should) argue against the importance of nonfiction filmmakers grappling with systemic racism, the refugee crisis, political scandals, and gun violence.

As is often the case with the Academy, though, it’s what’s not in contention that’s a little irksome. The Oscars in recent ...

At an awards luncheon earlier in the week, Academy Award winner Barbara Kopple, the director of the 2015 documentary “Miss Sharon Jones!,” gave a heartfelt tribute to the late funk and soul singer Sharon Jones, who succumbed to cancer in November following a three-year battle with the disease.

“I don’t know what words I can use to say how much I love and respect Sharon Jones,” Kopple said. “She embraced life like nobody could. You would see her in a room where people were getting chemotherapy and she would just bring sunshine and humor »

Cinema Eye Honors 2017 Winners List: ‘Cameraperson’ and ‘O.J.: Made in America’ Lead Awards

11 January 2017 4:50 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Awards season keeps ticking right along, but tonight’s Cinema Eye Honors promised at least a tiny respite from narrative-based filmmaking, as the New York City-set ceremony is all about honoring the best in the year’s documentary filmmaking.

Big winners included Kirsten Johnson’s “Cameraperson,” which picked up Outstanding Achievement in Nonfiction Feature Filmmaking, along with editing and cinematography wins. Right behind it was Ezra Edelman’s “O.J.: Made in America,” which earned Edelman a directing win, along with a production win for Edelman and Caroline Waterlow. Best TV offering went to “Making a Murderer.”

Nominations were lead by Raoul Peck’s “I Am Not Your Negro” and “O.J.: Made in America,” which each pulled in five nominations apiece, though Johnson’s “Cameraperson” and Gianfranco Rosi’s “Fire at Sea” aren’t far behind, with four nominations each. Both Peck and Rosi’s features ultimately walked away without an award. »

Cinema Eye Honors Turn 10: How This Oscar-Season Protest Became a Cozy Documentary Club

11 January 2017 7:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Oscars can have its annual celebrity luncheon. This week, several documentarians celebrated the Cinema Eye Honors with an after-hours field trip to the Whitney Museum of American Art.

Conceived in 2008 as a bid to broaden awareness for documentary achievements, the Cinema Eyes highlight a dozen categories that range from best director to best cinematography to graphic design. However, while it began as a tonic to the five-nominee limitations that circumscribe the Oscars, the Cinema Eyes have evolved into an idiosyncratic celebration all its own. Although the awards are Wednesday night at the Museum of the Moving Image in New York, the ceremony is now only the culmination of a full week of programming that includes three days of activities.

“It’s kind of like senior skip week,” said co-founder and filmmaker Aj Schnack, catching his breath on Monday night before delivering a speech to the filmmakers in attendance. “Yes, »

Nsfc Winners pt. 2: Acclaimed O.J. Doc, African-American Pioneers

8 January 2017 9:34 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Only in America: The O.J. Simpson saga [See previous post: Isabelle Huppert & Moonlight among Nsfc winners.] The National Society of Film Critics' Best Non-Fiction Film was Ezra Edelman's five-part Espn Films documentary O.J.: Made in America, about the trials (there were two) and tribulations of disgraced all-American football player and sometime movie actor O.J. Simpson (The Towering Inferno, The Naked Gun: From the Files of the Police Squad!). In 1994, Simpson was accused of murdering his former wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Lyle Goldman in Los Angeles' Brentwood neighborhood. The ensuing trial became one of the ugliest – and most popular – all-American circuses of the second half of the 20th century. With the assistance of a high-profile defense team, Simpson was acquitted of the murders, but at a follow-up civil trial he was found liable for Brown Simpson's and Goldman's wrongful deaths. Years later, in 2008, he would be convicted of and imprisoned for several felonies unrelated to the 1994 murders. »
