Guy Maddin on Reinventing ‘Vertigo’ with ‘The Green Fog,’ Male Gaze, and the Bressonian Qualities of Chuck Norris

“Let mystery have its place in you; do not be always turning up your whole soil with the plowshare of self-examination, but leave a little fallow corner in your heart ready for any seed the winds may bring, and reserve a nook of shadow for the passing bird; keep a place in your heart for the unexpected guests, an altar for the unknown God.”

― Henri-Frédéric Amiel

Jack Palance recites the previous quote in Sudden Fear and it’s the manifesto for Guy Maddin and Evan and Galen Johnson’s new project, The Green Fog. The quote is one of a few lines of dialogue to appear in the film. It’s mostly ‘narrated’ with gestures, the breath between words and a score composed by Jacob Garchik and performed by Kronos Quartet. You hear nods to Bernard Hermann’s score of Hitchcock’s Vertigo throughout.

Recommended New Books on Filmmaking: ‘Blade Runner 2049,’ Francis Ford Coppola, David Bowie & More

It’s been a stellar year of cinema and pop culture-themed books, and the texts (and Blu-rays) in this round-up all make fine gifts. One additional book that should be on your year-end list is Mark Frost’s Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier. It’s a satisfying companion to season three of Peaks, not to mention Frost’s own Secret History of Twin Peaks. So be sure to check out Nick Newman’s recent interview with the Peaks co-creator.

Live Cinema and Its Techniques by Francis Ford Coppola (Liveright)

The legendary Francis Ford Coppola has spoken of “live cinema” with regularity over the years, specifically with respect to 1981’s One From the Heart. That film, a box office flop now held in some regard, is an essential part of Live Cinema and Its Techniques, a fascinating new book authored by Coppola himself. The lessons from that experience, Coppola says,

Terrence Howard: ‘I’ve Never Been Abusive to Anyone in My Entire Life’
Terrence Howard has faced numerous allegations of violence against his two ex-wives. But despite previously admitting to hitting his first wife, the 48-year-old Empire star now says being abusive is not part of his history.

“I’ve never been abusive to anyone in my entire life,” Howard wrote on Twitter early Saturday morning. “I have loved and paid the price for love. I am the same loving being since day 1!”

His tweets came seemingly in response to an interview in the current issue of People, in which he said, “I’ve made terrible mistakes throughout my life.”

‘John Wick’ First Person Shooter Virtual Reality Game Turns You Into the Cinematic Assassin

‘John Wick’ First Person Shooter Virtual Reality Game Turns You Into the Cinematic Assassin
The franchising of the very popular Keanu Reeves-starring puppy-centric actioner “John Wick” continues apace, with a much-hyped sequel on the way early next year, buzzing rumors that studio Lionsgate is already prepping a third film in the series and a brand new virtual reality video game in the works. That game — a first person shooter called “John Wick Chronicles” from Starbreeze — hit up New York’s Comic-Con this weekend, revealing an early look at what players can expect when it arrives in February (just in time for “John Wick: Chapter Two”!).

The character of John Wick has already dabbled in the video game world, thanks to an introduction in Starbreeze’s own 2013 game “Payday 2,” and “John Wick Chronicles” looks to only further expand out that little nugget in terms of both style of game play and actual storytelling. At Comic-Con, Starbreeze and Lionsgate offered up an immersive preview,

Phantom Movie Review

A pacy grace envelopes Kabir Khan’s new political thriller. You can almost smell the tension in the air. If Bajrangi Bhaijaan was a agreeable gentle cup of lemon tea Phantom is a the bracing percolating morning cup of coffee that makes you jump out of your bed and seize the day.

Kabir’s second film in six weeks after the epic success of Bajrangi Bhaijaan takes an aggressive what-if stand against Pakistan-sponsored terrorism. It does so with a cool candour that makes for a bracing jolting wake-up call for the two nations at a proxy war rattling sabres across the barbed fence.

Phantom works on a simple premise. You give us 26/11. We take revenge. As simple as that. In many ways the very talented Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub playing a raw Raw agent (no, I am not stammering) represents the voice of the nation. His inexperience among veterans who plot

Julia Roberts Is A Bad Mamma Jamma In This 'Secret In Their Eyes' Trailer - MTV

Julia Roberts Is A Bad Mamma Jamma In This 'Secret In Their Eyes' Trailer - MTV
Parental revenge plots pretty much always blur the balance between right and wrong, luring even the most pacifist viewer into a fit of fist-pumping for blood and rooting for the nastiest form of vengeance — because who wouldn’t leap past the line to stick eye for eye to the guy who hurt your kid? Tricky business. In “The Secret In Their Eyes,” Julia Roberts plays an FBI agent named Jess whose close-knit squad is called out to the scene of a murder, only to discover it’s her own teenage daughter who’s been brutally killed. And she has to sit back and watch as the guy who did it (we think?) gets to walk on a technicality. So, of course she wants to hunt him down and do what her “Steel Magnolias” mom Sally Field did to Kiefer Sutherland in “Eye for an Eye” — that is, take justice into her own hands.

Latest Freebies For The Witcher III: Wild Hunt Include Nifgaardian Armor; New Patch Is Imminent

Following the release of yesterday’s free content pack as part of CD Projekt Red’s pragmatic approach to Dlc, the polish developer has offered further details for The Witcher III: Wild Hunt‘s new patch, stating that the new update is “very large” in size.

Answering fan questions via Twitter, the studio’s Community Lead Marcin Momot stated that the patch won’t be release today, but that more information will be released sooner rather than later.

@Miikka9 Definitely not today. That’s all I can say for now.

— Marcin Momot (@Marcin360) June 2, 2015

Chief among those fixes will be the hard-to-read text, which has proven to be a problem considering the sheer amount of content lurking beneath Wild Hunt‘s striking appearance, meaning players have already spent a fair chunk of playing time squinting at menus. In tandem with this, a notorious Xp bug is due to be rectified,

The Speed of Causality: Michael Mann's "Blackhat"

  • MUBI
“Look at where you are.”

(Spoilers abound.)

Michael Mann’s new film, Blackhat, is a paradox of magnitudes and proximities. The scale is global, as announced in the opening shots that rhyme with the Universal logo just prior and, thanks to the dissolves down to Earth, Charles and Ray Eames' 1977 Powers of Ten. Once on ground, in a nuclear reactor’s control room, the powers of cinema take us yet deeper, smaller, to see how fast data travels across minuscule relays inside a screen, a computer, a network. And this data, or code, is made visible as points of light—dots arrayed and racing in tandem with the image (itself a fiction of code, or data) of this new vast universe—given weight through the thunder and crackle of sound design—a truly cinematic sequence of movement/animation no text can replicate.

This opening serves to illustrate the mechanisms

Revenge's Midseason Finale Kills Off a Major Character
As seems to be the tradition for midseason finales (looking at you, The Walking Dead), a major character bit the dust on Sunday's Revenge.

Spoilers are below, obviously.

As the episode title foreshadowed, Daniel (Josh Bowman) received his "Atonement," of sorts, when he sacrificed himself to save Emily (Emily VanCamp).

The son of the most hated man in America, Daniel dove in front of a bullet meant for Emily fired by FBI agent Kate (Courtney Ford).

Undeterred, Kate aimed for her target once again before her boyfriend, Jack (Nick Wechsler), arrived in the nick of time to stop her by killing her.
