M. Night Shyamalan Discusses Glass, The Philosophical Conflict at its Heart, and The Classic Film That Influenced it

Fans were floored by the trailer that was recently released for M. Night Shyamalan's Glass. A lot of people didn't expect the direction of the story they are taking this film, and that's what I love about Shyamalan in regards to this franchise; he likes to play with the unexpected.

During an interview with io9, the filmmaker opened up a little bit about the film's story and explains that there's a philosophical conflict at the heart of the film that will set it apart from Unbreakable and Glass.

"I think there’s definitely a philosophical conflict at the center of the movie which is, you know, are they are they deluded to think these things? Or is that belief in oneself ultimately something that truly makes them something more?"That kind of belief is a tenuous thing for people. Even if we can do extraordinary things, is it something

10 Facts About The Shining You Never Knew

10 Facts About The Shining You Never Knew
It's one of the most excruciatingly analyzed films from one of the most celebrated filmmakers of all time, adapted from a story by one of our most prolific creative minds. Stanley Kubrick's The Shining features several career-defining scenes starring the most nominated male actor in the history of the Academy Awards. Here we'll take a look at 10 things you never knew about The Shining.

Stephen King and Kubrick had just one conversation.

The Shining author says he had but one preproduction discussion with the famous director. Kubrick called him at 7 in the morning one day, asking, "I think stories of the supernatural are fundamentally optimistic, don't you? If there are ghosts then that means we survive death." King asked how hell would fit in with that notion. After a long pause, the filmmaker said, "I don't believe in hell." While King disavowed the film due to Kubrick's numerous departures from the source material,

F. Murray Abraham on Milos Forman: 'Tough as Nails, a Nose for the Truth'

F. Murray Abraham on Milos Forman: 'Tough as Nails, a Nose for the Truth'
When news broke over the weekend about the death of Czech-American filmmaker Milos Forman, movie lovers, actors and directors mourned the legacy of a man who celebrated rebels and outcasts in iconic, Oscar-winning works like One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and Amadeus. Forman was fearless, taking on controversial projects – his satire The Fireman's Ball was banned in his homeland of Czechoslovakia – and, in the case of Amadeus, arguing that the roles of the vain, mediocre composer Antonio Salieri and bratty young genius Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart must be played by unknowns rather than movie stars.

Milos Forman, Oscar-winning Director, Dead At 86

  • CinemaRetro
Forman directing James Cagney in "Ragtime".

By Lee Pfeiffer

Milos Forman, the Czech immigrant to Hollywood who would be awarded two Oscars, has died at age 86. Forman was a rising star in Czechoslovakia in the 1960s, directing such lighthearted, quirky films as "Black Peter" and "The Fireman's Ball". Forman's films were breaking new ground at a time when the progressive Czech government was pushing the envelope against Soviet control and enjoying new freedoms. All of that came crashing down in 1968 when the short-lived "Prague Spring" was crushed by the Soviet invasion. Forman immigrated to America and found the opportunity to make films for major studios. However, his first effort, the critically acclaimed 1971 generation gap comedy "Taking Off" failed at the boxoffice. In 1975, Forman was given another chance, this time by producer Michael Douglas to direct the film version of Ken Kesey's "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest". The film

Miloš Forman: the director who brought the spirit of anti-Soviet rebellion to Hollywood | Peter Bradshaw

The Czech film-maker forged a brilliant career after overcoming the obstacles of both postwar communism in his homeland and Hollywood to where he escaped

Related: One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest director Miloš Forman dies aged 86

The divine inspiration of madness – its ambiguity, its creativity, its higher sanity, and the cover and legitimacy it gives to protest against oppression and bullies of all stripes – these were the ideas which energised Miloš Forman in his remarkable work. He was the Czech new wave émigré who brought the spirit of anti-Soviet rebellion to Hollywood and made its sly comic strategies and humanist passion flower in dozens of different ways. He also became one of the many directors whose work was shaped by working with the great screenwriter Jean-Claude Carrière.
