‘Under the Silver Lake’ Trailer: Andrew Garfield Leads Crime Drama from the Director of ‘It Follows’

After his hit horror thriller It Follows, which packed an unceasing sense of dread, director David Robert Mitchell is back and finally teaming with the distributor that seems well-attuned to his sensibilities: A24. This summer, they will release Under the Silver Lake, a Andrew Garfield-led crime drama that delves into the indie music scene, and now the first trailer has arrived.

The film follows Garfield’s character Sam who goes on a personal quest to track down a missing woman (Riley Keough) in a music-filled Los Angeles, complete with hidden clues everywhere… or so he thinks. From the first seconds, one gets the sense that this will be an altogether different outing for the director, stylistically speaking. With a vibrant color palette and an off-kilter comedic-meets-romantic vibe, not to mention the use of Never My Love, there’s the feeling of an Inherent Vice-meets-David Lynch-meets-Richard Kelly influence.

Video Essay. L'année dernière à Twin Peaks (Last Year at Twin Peaks)

  • MUBI
“We’re like the dreamer, who dreams and then lives inside a dream. But who is the dreamer?” Monica Bellucci asks David Lynch himself this question, in a dream sequence. It's a black and white flashback, in which not only are we being told about something that already happened, we're also being shown footage from the present and the past. Interestingly enough, it's also a recurring a dream—which means it'll probably happen again.The world of Twin Peaks lives in the dream of time and space. Surrounded by a haunting and mysterious magical forest, after a quarter of century we’re still fascinated by this enigmatic universe. A pivotal, tragic moment seems to define this town and world, and to an extent, Lynch’s work. The killing of young beauty, prom queen Laura Palmer. “This is the girl,” Justin Theroux’s film director character is told in Mulholland Dr.

Cry Me a River: The Radical and Revolutionary Power of Melodrama

Within the first ten minutes of Nicholas Ray’s unimpeachable classic Rebel Without a Cause Jim Stark (James Dean) wails, “You’re tearing me apart!!!!!” This is not an instance where the film crescendos with an emotional breakdown, but begins. Jim Stark is a staggering portrait of apocalyptic masculine adolescence ripping apart a young body through expectations put on him by society and his own self-imposed fears that he could turn into his passive father. Jim Stark is one of the defining characters of cinematic melodrama with his unbridled emotional honesty laid bare for the world to see. He physically cannot keep himself from gnashing, wailing, and screaming in the face of emotions that bubble to the surface. Melodrama opens the lid on these reactions and rides that feeling to cinematic honesty and authenticity. Melodrama is realer than real; a hyper-stylized evocation of feelings that we’re all familiar with as human beings.

Rare Behind the Scenes Footage of the Making of Mulholland Drive

Getting a chance to see the rare, behind the scenes glimpses of Mulholland Drive is something that you might be interested in if you ever watched the movie. Since I have not watched it, only read about, I can say that it seems like a real mind bender and might actually confuse those who don’t understand what’s going on. The behind the scenes look however are something that shows just how the confusing and strange moments in the film were made. Like a lot of films it’s very involved and has to be done in a manner that’s very professional

Nicolas Winding Refn’s ‘Too Old To Die Young’: Everything You Need to Know About the Amazon TV Show
Director Nicolas Winding Refn’s newly announced crime series has been kept extremely under wraps — until recently. Refn has been sharing behind-the-scenes photos and videos on his personal Twitter account since before production officially started.

As the genre heightens in popularity for TV audiences, the “Drive” director’s pairing with Amazon derives eager speculation as to what this grisly new drama will look like.

The series has been greenlit with a 10-episode straight-to-series order residing at Amazon. “Too Old To Die Young” takes place in the criminal underbelly of Los Angeles, exploring various characters’ “existential journeys from being killers to becoming samurais in the city of angels.” With shooting having just begun, start getting acquainted with the details surrounding this star-studded series.

David Lynch as Actor: How His Onscreen Persona Has Evolved From ‘The Cleveland Show’ to ‘Lucky’
Here’s a strange thought: David Lynch has been in front of the camera more often in the last 10 years than he’s been behind it. Though rarely thought of as an actor in the same manner as other on-camera directors, Lynch has appeared not only in several of his own projects — most recently the “Twin Peaks” revival, in which his Gordon Cole became one of the main characters — but an expectedly far-flung range of others as well. Though he only lends his voice to some of them, he imbues each role with his nonpareil essence.

Beauty vs Beast: Listen to the Lady in the Radiator

Jason from Mnpp here -- this Thursday David Lynch's cult masterpiece Eraserhead is marking its 40th anniversary! 40 years have passed and I still haven't seen anything like it. Even among Lynch's work it still feels singular - you know how there's the blue key in Mulholland Drive that opens the little box? Sometimes I feel like Eraserhead is the blue key. Everything flows through it. It's his beautiful brain's Rosetta Stone, but good luck deciphering it. Anyway let's celebrate the film with this week's round of "Beauty vs Beast" shall we...

Previously You guys gave James Marsden a very happy birthday week, giving his Enchanted performance a whopping 85% against Patrick Dempsey's. That's one of the soundest beatings I think we've ever had. Said PoliVamp:

The 25 Best Female Movie Performances of the 21st Century

The 25 Best Female Movie Performances of the 21st Century
Much has been made about the dearth of strong female roles in contemporary cinema, and the problematic depictions of women in many recent movies, but the past two decades have provided plenty of counterexamples. While the onus is on writers and directors to craft strong female characters, the actresses themselves bring these figures to life, and they’re often the main reason we keep being drawn back to these works.

In no particular order, our favorite — and we’d like to think the best — female performances of the 21st century.

Isabelle Huppert, “Elle

Paul Verhoeven’s “Elle” begins with a laugh that catches in your throat: A wide-eyed cat looks off-screen to the screams of a man and woman in apparent orgiastic bliss. Then comes the cutaway, which reveals a far more nefarious incident: Middle-aged Michéle (Isabelle Huppert), in the process of getting raped by a masked assailant on the floor of her home.

Is ‘Mulholland Drive’ Really the Greatest Film of the 21st Century? (Or How I Learned to Love David Lynch)
Until a few months ago, if the name David Lynch came up in film discussion, I would have inwardly shrugged. It had been years since I watched one of Lynch’s films. It had also been years since Lynch had even made a new feature (the last one being Inland Empire in 2006). But after screening […]

Netflix giveth, and Netflix taketh away. Though the streaming giant is bestowing upon us a ton of exciting new titles in October (Miss Congeniality! Stranger Things season two!), that also means it has to get rid of a bunch of existing programs to make way.

Tiff 2017. Correspondences #10

  • MUBI
Dear Kelley and Fern,As you both noted earlier, John Woo’s Manhunt was a thrilling, tongue-in-cheek compendium of the director's best qualities. This kind of masterful self-reflexivity may rub some the wrong way—remember, at the time, the hostility to De Palma’s Femme Fatale and Lynch’s Mulholland Dr. as if they were only Directors' Greatest Hits?—but when done smartly this is no mere masturbation, but a celebration and self-questioning, honed to deft precision, of an artist’s perennial themes.Such is the case with one of the few great feature films I've seen here in Toronto, Paul Schrader’s First Reformed. In remarkable contrast to his last film, the coked-up cartoon Dog Eat Dog, it is is a self-consciously austere drama of a wearied priest (a tremendous, hollowed-out Ethan Hawke) of a minuscule congregation housed in the oldest church in America, one dismissively dubbed the ‘souvenirs shop’ by the newer,

Canon Of Film: The Backstory

This being my first post on Age of the Nerd, I feel a slight need to introduce myself before I introduce this hopefully continuous and long-running feature here. I’m David Baruffi, and years ago, I created something called ‘Canon Of Film‘. Well, “Created” is pushing it, I know I’m not the only or first, or thousandth person who’s ever decided that writing a bunch of short essays about particular movies, but my intention behind the list was far more personal.

This origins of this list started innocently enough, I was simply trying to make a short list of films to recommend to a friend of mine. I was still going to my local Community College at the time, and had not yet decided to become a film major, but was beginning to lean in that direction. Anyway, I made a short list of what were at the

‘Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone’ and the Indisputable Mastery of Hideaki Anno

Looking back on this still-young century makes clear that 2007 was a major time for cinematic happenings — and, on the basis of this retrospective, one we’re not quite through with ten years on. One’s mind might quickly flash to a few big titles that will be represented, but it is the plurality of both festival and theatrical premieres that truly surprises: late works from old masters, debuts from filmmakers who’ve since become some of our most-respected artists, and mid-career turning points that didn’t necessarily announce themselves as such at the time. Join us as an assembled team, many of whom were coming of age that year, takes on their favorites.

In the world of Japanese pop auteurs, there are few rising stars as unpredictably eclectic, temperamental, and consistently fascinating as Hideaki Anno. Anno began his professional life in the early 1980s as a young animator working literally
