Ed Harris & Jason Sudeikis in Official Trailer for Netflix's 'Kodachrome'

"No art worth a damn was ever created out of happiness, I can tell you that much." Netflix has debuted the trailer for an indie titled Kodachrome, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year. Based on an article by A.G. Sulzberger, the film is about a father and son who take a road trip to Kansas in order to develop photos at Kodak's last Kodachrome lab before it closes its doors forever. It's set during the final days of the admired photo development system known as Kodachrome, with production finishing in 2010. This is clearly a love letter to the art of film and developing film and the days of film, but wrapped around the engaging story of a fun road trip. Kodachrome stars Jason Sudeikis, Ed Harris, Elizabeth Olsen, Wendy Crewson, Bruce Greenwood, and Dennis Haysbert. This looks quite good, it's worth a watch. Here's the first

In and Of the World: The Textures of Michael’s Mann’s "Heat"

  • MUBI
Michael Mann's Heat (1995) is showing November 11 - December 11, 2017 on Mubi in the United Kingdom.Neil McCauley (Robert De Niro) emerges from a train with unassuming poise, mingling seamlessly with the other disembarking passengers. As they recede into the background, however, congealing into airy circular blurs of out-of-focus features, Neil becomes the obvious point of attention, even more so as the camera pulls back and follows his journey from a comparative distance. In the guise of a medic, he makes his way to a hospital and coasts through its thoroughfares, passing oblivious employees and patients, until he arrives at his destination: an ambulance, which he steals. Neil’s anonymity enabled the theft and it allowed for his inconspicuous progress. He fit in. He seemed natural. Wherever he went, he had the perceptible appearance of belonging. This is key to what distinguishes Heat, Michael Mann’s 1995 contemporary crime masterpiece. Capitalizing on

Toronto Film Review: ‘Kodachrome’

Toronto Film Review: ‘Kodachrome’
Old enough to have served as a signifier of bygone nostalgia way back when Paul Simon wrote a song about it in 1973, Kodachrome color film was officially phased out at the end of the last decade, and by 2010, there was just a single lab left in the country that could process it. When that lab, Dwayne’s Photo, announced it would stop handling Kodachrome by the end of the year, vintage photography lovers made a pilgrimage to Parsons, Kansas, to develop one last roll.

That real-life digital age milestone serves as the hook for director Mark Raso’s road-trip dramedy “Kodachrome,” which reunites an acclaimed, dying photojournalist with his estranged, record company executive son as they make the abovementioned journey together. Shot on 35mm, and full of odes to the greatness of analog technology, “Kodachrome” isn’t nearly as cranky as it sounds, and thanks to some likable performances from Jason Sudeikis, Elizabeth Olsen

Lord of the Flies Is Getting an All-Girl Reboot

Lord of the Flies Is Getting an All-Girl Reboot
The classic William Golding novel Lord of the Flies, which has been adapted twice for the big screen, will be adapted yet again, only this time, with a huge twist. Warner Bros. has finalized a deal with filmmakers Scott McGehee and David Siegel (What Maisie Knew) to write and direct a new version of Lord of the Files, which will have an all-female cast. The filmmakers will reportedly be incredibly faithful to the original novel, while, at the same time, gender-swapping all of the character.

Deadline reports that it took some time to get the film rights intact, since the whole situation is rather complicated. The original novel, which was published in 1954, was adapted into the 1963 film Lord of the Files, which starred James Aubrey, Tom Chapin and Hugh Edwards, and was directed by Peter Brook. Then in 1990, Castle Rock released a new adaptation from director Harry Hook, which starred

Movie Review – The Dark Tower (2017)

The Dark Tower, 2017.

Directed by Nikolaj Arcel.

Starring Idris Elba, Matthew McConaughey, Tom Taylor, Dennis Haysbert, Claudia Kimm, Jackie Earle Haley, Fran Kranz, and Katheryn Winnick.

Synopsis:

The last Gunslinger, Roland Deschain, has been locked in an eternal battle with Walter O’Dim, also known as the Man in Black, determined to prevent him from toppling the Dark Tower, which holds the universe together. With the fate of the worlds at stake, good and evil will collide in the ultimate battle as only Roland can defend the Tower from the Man in Black.

Watching The Dark Tower fills you with a range of feelings from boredom to disappointment and surprise that such dense source material has been cobbled together with such a lack of care. Based on Stephen King’s 8 book odyssey, The Dark Tower series creates a rich and fascinating world of gunslingers, good vs evil, strong characters and

‘The Dark Tower’ Review

Stars: Idris Elba, Matthew McConaughey, Tom Taylor, Dennis Haysbert, Ben Gavin, Claudia Kim, Jackie Earle Haley, Fran Kranz, Abbey Lee, Katheryn Winnick, Nicholas Pauling, Michael Barbieri, José Zúñiga | Written by Akiva Goldsman, Jeff Pinkner, Anders Thomas Jensen, Nikolaj Arcel | Directed by Nikolaj Arcel

“The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed.” As opening lines go, The Gunslinger’s should be up there with Pride and Prejudice’s universally acknowledged truth for sheer iconicism. We say should be, for Stephen King’s epic fantasy Western always was one of his most underappreciated, and less read.

Hence director Nikolaj Arcel and his screenwriters (plus committee, who had a big hand in this aberration) jettisoning that powerful, brilliant, stark opening in favour of modern-day New York and a teenage protagonist. For those unfamiliar with the books, The Dark Tower won’t be even nearly so offensive. Constant readers will

Physically “Naked” with Not Much Steam to Run On

(Aotn) There’s something about some of Marlon Wayans’ career choices this decade that could understandably be seen as “frustrating.” The youngest of the Wayans brothers has demonstrated a great knack for physical comedy (the first two entries in the Scary Movie franchise and even the goofy yet riotous White Chicks) and an equally impressive potential as a serious actor (his dramatic turn in Requiem for a Dream), but his latest – the declining Haunted House movies and the abysmal Fifty Shades of Black, which actually managed to make the series it’s spoofing look like Last Tango in Paris by comparison – are a an embarrassing nose dive in comedic standard. Enter Michael TiddesNaked, not the 1993 Cannes winner by Mike Leigh, Netflix’s latest comedic offering and a breath of stale air that actually manages to find a hint of freshness and showcase some of the good qualities of Mr.

Film Review: Good vs. Evil Brightly Entertaining in ‘The Dark Tower’

Chicago – Nobody does good vs. evil archetypes like author Stephen King, and this framework is purposeful in the film adaptation of King’s “The Dark Tower.” The popular book series gets a visual kick through the rendering of director Nikolaj Arcel and Ron Howard’s Imagine Entertainment.

Rating: 4.0/5.0

It will be left to the readers of the book series to gauge the film’s ultimate success, but to somebody walking in who knows nothing of the story (like me), the parallel worlds and mystical forces surrounding it was fascinating both as science fiction and blithe fantasy. With characters like “The Man in Black” and “The Gunslinger” facing off – over the ultimate power contained in a hub in the universe called The Dark Tower – it’s best to sit back while this confrontation inspires the visual wonders, that are righteously delivered in our current movie era. It’s not perfect, and
