Before Sunrise (1995)
“A lot of directors like to have power over people. But with Linklater, it’s always our movie,” Hawke said of the filmmaker. “When he says wrap, it feels like it’s your film. His greatest skill is using his confidence and his knowledge to empower others, to show them respect, and to lift them up.”
Linklater catapulted Hawke’s career when he cast him in “Before Sunrise” when he was only in his early twenties.
It’s rare for sequels to succeed at the Oscars. “The Godfather” (1972) and “The Godfather: Part II” (1974) are the only example of a film and its sequel both winning Best Picture Oscars. But it’s rare for sequels to even pick up nominations. “Star Wars” (1977) was a cultural phenomenon and a Best Picture nominee, but despite critical
Aleksey German-Jr.’s new feature Dovlatov (which premieres in competition in Berlin next month) is to receive an ambitious 800-screen “blitz” release through Disney and Sony’s joint Russian distribution arm in early March.
The news of the unusual campaign was confirmed by Metrafilms’ Artem Vasilyev, the producer of the film, at International Film Festival Rotterdam this week. “We want a really wide release but a really short release,” Vasilyev said of the “Weekend with Dovlatov” strategy, which is to have the film in cinemas for four days. The Russian/Polish/Serbian coproduction tells the story of writer and journalist, Sergei Dovlatov in the period just before he is forced into exile.
Dovlatov is handled internationally by Paris-based international sales company, Alpha Violet.
Vasilyev is in Rotterdam with Aleksey Fedorchenko’s Anna’s War (picked up for world sales earlier this month by [link=co

He (Glen Hansard), is a street guitarist/songwriter who works as a vacuum-cleaner repairman in his father’s shop in Dublin. One night, He meets She (Marketa Irglova) a young Czech pianist, who hears him playing, and she has a vacuum that needs repairing. She’s poor, and doesn’t own a piano, but she practices at the display at a local music store, and one day, He goes with her one day, guitar in hand… What happens next in John Carney’s independent musical ‘Once,’ cannot be described properly using detailed minutia. The word that keeps popping in my head to describe what happens is “magical,” and yet, that word still feels inappropriate. There is,
Some of the talkingest films ever made (that weren’t even made by Quentin Tarantino) teach us how to talk better. ichard Linklater is a rambling man. His films weave in and out of things that matter like a drunk in an antique shop. His masterpieces, the Before trilogy (Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, and Before Midnight) […]
The article Brushing Up On Conversation With The ‘Before’ Trilogy appeared first on Film School Rejects.
Back when he was in his early 20s and working on offshore oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico, Linklater would spend much of his downtime in H-Town educating himself in movie history by attending screenings just across the street, at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Or at the nearby Rice University Media Center. Or at art houses like the River Oaks Theatre — back when it screened repertory double bills — and the long-shuttered Greenway 3. He has spent most of his life and career in and around Austin, where he shot his breakthrough indie feature, “Slacker,” in 1989. But

“The Babadook” might be about a demon that pops out of a children’s book, but no recent film does a better job of capturing the acute reality of living with grief. “Cloverfield” follows a gaggle of pre-Instagram model millennials as they’re chased around Manhattan by a bug-eyed colossus, but few of the somber post-9/11 dramas do a better job of distilling the heartsick chaos of watching your hometown try to
Case in point: The splashiest arrival is a Noah Baumbach film, and it’s safe to say that “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)” is considerably less frightening than any of the Adam Sandler comedies that Netflix has brought to you before. On the other hand, it’s true that movies can terrify you in a

“You don’t need to have seen Resolution to enjoy what this new film offers, but it does enrich the experience ten-fold because of the expansion of mythology that’s presented through two minor characters originally dismissed as brief comic relief,” we said in our review. Starring Benson, Moorhead, Tate Ellington, Callie Hernandez, James Jordan, and Lew Temple, see the trailer below.
Following their Lovecraftian modern cult classic Spring, writer/directors Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead star as brothers who receive a mysterious message inspiring them to pay a visit to the cult they escaped as children.
Columbus is not a film about the Italian explorer but about an American city named for him. No, not Columbus, Ohio, but the lesser-known Columbus, Indiana. This small Midwestern city is home to a surprising number of buildings designed by big names in mid-century Modern architecture, such as Eero Saarinen, I.M. Pei, Deborah Burke, Harry Weese and others.
St. Louisans might recognize Eero Saarinen as the designer of the Gateway Arch but architecture buffs will know those names are some of the biggest of the Modern style of architecture. If you are a fan of mid-twentieth century architecture, or of Columbus, Indiana, then Columbus is the film for you. But even if not a fan of either, viewers might give this thoughtful,

Today we have the first trailer for his next film called Last Flag Flying, which has an amazing cast that includes Bryan Cranston, Steve Carrell, and Lawrence Fishburne.
