Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Review: Good, but not as Tarantino was, once upon a time

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Review: Good, but not as Tarantino was, once upon a time It is inspired by the murders of actress Sharon Tate and her friends at the hands of a hippy cult in 1969, only the film re-writes this historical fact. It is inspired by the super-hit spaghetti Westerns of the mid to late 60s, led by Italian director Sergio Leone, only he is never mentioned in the film. It is a satirical take on martial arts’ ‘God’ Bruce Lee, but takes an amazingly unfla...

Danny Collins, Review: Letter and spirit

Danny Collins, Review: Letter and spirit  Dan Fogelman, in his feature directorial debut, gives ample evidence of a truly fertile imagination that builds an edifice on an apparently flimsy premise. Considering he’s the man who wrote Crazy, Stupid, Love; Tangled and Cars, this should not come as a surprise. After all, a good screenplay means convincing fiction, doesn’t it? Almost anything can trigger a film script: a news item, a book, a biography, a personal experience, or, a...

The Humbling, Venice International Film Festival 2014, Sketch by Nesta

King Lear on Broadway. Show me the man who is not passion’s slave.

Manglehorn, Venice International Film Festival 2014, Sketch by Nesta

A wonderful construct to put the cat there. I just stood there and let everything fall in there.

The Humbling, Venice International Film Festival 2014, Sketch by Nesta

I may be depressed but I don’t know about it. Depressed seems so ominous Anonymity goes up in value. In order to live, use what you can. The humbling desire. Gene Hackman clothed on a mountain.

The Humbling, Venice International Film Festival 2014, Sketch by Nesta

Tragic Comic Fall viewed as glamorous. Comedy and tragedy, the mask kisses them both. “That’s nice!” says Pacino in regards to the Sketch.

What Has Keanu Reeves Been Up To? Quite a Lot, Actually & Makes It 'Rain' Soon

  by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent   Everybody has their version of who Keanu Reeves is, that airhead guy from Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure or the hero from Speed with Sandra Bullock or the enigmatic character in 47 Ronin released last year. And next he will star in and executive produce a TV series called "Rain." But wait, where has he been for the last few years? Noticeably on-and-off the Hollywood radar. Keanu, who turns 50 on Sept. 2, was ...

The Summer I Met Al Pacino

user
The summer of 1999 carried a lot of firsts for me.It was the first time I was able to perform one of my dream plays on the stage -- as Tom in "The Glass Menagerie".It was the first time I had ever quit a job -- a job I had held for eight years -- because I was told I couldn't take a much deserved vacation to L.A.And speaking of L.A., it was my first time on a plane...the first time I had ever taken a personal vacation......and the first (ok, and only) time I met Al Pacino.You have ...

Movie Analysis: THE INSIDER

user
FIRST IMPRESSIONS The titles quickly fade up and extinguish, burning away like the tissued wrapping of a cigarette. The first image smashes like a thunderbolt upon the screen, a point of view shot from behind a cloth hood. We hear the slightest whispers of strained breaths as tribal drums pound furiously on the soundtrack. Not even thirty seconds into Michael Mann's 1999 film "The Insider" and we're already suffocating. The man behind the mask is Lowell Bergman, the venerable producer of "60...

Movie Topic: PACINO VERSUS DENIRO

user
Why are Pacino's contributions more impressive than De Niro's? 1. THE STAGE Pacino, even to this day, eats, sleeps and breathes acting. It's all that he knows. He began in the theatre and still goes back and performs for scale once or twice a year. An interesting anecdote that speaks to how extensive theatrical experience aided Pacino from a career standpoint takes place in the late sixties. He was discovered by budding producer Martin Bregman in a New York production of "Does a Tiger We...

CAREER RETROSPECTIVE: THE AL PACINO FILMOGRAPHY

user
THE ELITE: In a career teeming with brilliant work, these are Al Pacino's greatest films. The Godfather: This is where the legacy begins, both of the greatest one-two punch in film history and Pacino's stellar career. Pacino first plays the highly moral idealist Michael sheepishly, until he subtly morphs into a cold-blooded gangster right before your eyes. It is the most amazing transformation ever portrayed in the cinema; made all the more powerful because you barely register it happening. A+ ...
