“I want a film I watch to express either the joy... | Cinephilia and Beyond | Scoop.it

“I want a film I watch to express either the joy of making cinema or the anguish of making cinema”, Truffaut once said. “I am not interested in all the films that don’t vibrate.” He was suspicious of directors who had hobbies, he couldn’t understand how you could love two things in life. He loved only one — cinema. A documentary charting the trajectory of one of the greatest filmmakers of all time.

Think file transfers aren't art? Think again.

 

"The project — not to be confused with the DIY cinema groups or Cory Doctorow book – is the work of French digital artist Nicolas Maigret and American software developer Brendan Howell and uses data interception software to pull torrents from the top 100 on the Pirate Bay. The system utilizes an encrypted connection to make the machines used in the installation anonymous and each file used only remains on the computers for a short period of time.

 

“Following on my previous works (System Introspection/Internet Topography/Flat Earth Society) as well as Brendan’s (The Instant Contemporaneity Device) where the digital and network protocols were considered as the subjects themselves — I really wanted to put the human aspect of the network at the center of the piece,” Maigret said in an email to Wired. “In a sense, the question was not about turning peer-to-peer into art, but about bringing together the conditions to create a concrete aesthetic experience of the internal activity and qualities of P2P file sharing.”...

Unseen photos from Point Blank part 5

Cinephilia and Beyond's insight:

From Michel Ciment’s excellent biography “John Boorman”, the director remembers scouting this location and finding his inspiration for the scene: “While I was out location hunting, I discovered the excavator, an incredible machine used for digging graves. It used to be that, no matter how useless your life had been, it would at least give a gravedigger a day’s work to dig your grave. For me, that summed up American life. It struck me as the greatest of all betrayals: digging a grave in ten minutes with a mechanical spade.”

Cinephilia and Beyond's insight:

Before gaining worldwide fame for such daring and flamboyant films as The Music Lovers, Tommy and Altered States, English director Ken Russell cut his teeth at the BBC, making groundbreaking documentaries that featured re-enactments, and setting new standards in filmmaking. Ken Russell at the BBC earns an easy Highly Recommended.

France went on to garner the prize for best
direction with A Bout de Souffle (Breathless)
by pale, dark-glassed 26-year-old Jean-Luc
Godard, formerly of the Cahiers du Cinema
gang. Already tremendously successful in
France, the film was thrown together with
hand-held camera, improvised dialogue, sketchy
script, and has a thoroughgoing home-movie
look about it. Possibly its success is due to the
novelty of people never having seen such a
poorly made film on a public screen before.

Be nice to China: Hollywood risks 'artistic surrender' in effort to please

Be nice to China: Hollywood risks 'artistic surrender' in effort to please | Cinephilia and Beyond | Scoop.it

'Kowtowing to China has become a reflex for US film studios in search of a piece of booming – and lucrative – Chinese market...

 

The Dark Knight Rises and Skyfall found reasons for Batman and James Bond to visit China. Cloud Atlas cut 40 minutes. Quentin Tarantino approved multiple changes to Django Unchained.

 

Iron Man 3 went further than most, adding scenes for the Chinese version that showed a Chinese surgeon saving Tony Stark and lines for the leading female actor Fan Bingbing. Chinese links were expunged from the "Mandarin", a comic villain played by Ben Kingsley.

 

Robert Downey Jr, who plays the lead, told a press conference in Beijing: "I'm interested in all things Chinese, and I live a very Chinese life in America."...'

Unseen photos from Taxi Driver 

Cinephilia and Beyond's insight:

Actor Robert De Niro (as Travis Bickle) practicing with his guns in front of the mirror are the most famous shots/scenes from Martin Scorsese’s 1976 masterpiece, “Taxi Driver.” What most people don’t know is that the interiors of Travis’s apartment and Iris’s room/apartment hallways were actually shot in the very same building, 586 Columbus Avenue. The building was condemned and it has long since been demolished. I own a couple of original contact sheets from the film, this one features some great poses of De Niro in front of the mirror in his apartment.
