PAThe David Bowie musical Lazarus will be in London from October
The David Bowie musical Lazarus is heading to London.

The highly anticipated show has been dubbed a must-see for Bowie fans, and has already had a sell-out run off Broadway in the US last year.

The UK production will open at the Kings Cross Theatre in London on 25 October and will run until 22 January 2017. It will be the first time any theatrical work from the late singer has been shown on the London stage.

Co-written by Bowie, Lazarus focuses on the central character Thomas Jerome Newton, a human-looking alien who comes to Earth and becomes disillusioned by life as he is unable to die.

Firefox gaat Flash standaard uitzetten

Firefox gaat Flash standaard uitzetten | Making Movies | Scoop.it
Het einde van Flash is inmiddels al jaren in zicht, alles en iedereen dumpt de verouderde Adobe technologie, zelfs Adobe zelf. Het alternatief is HTML5 maar het uitfaseren van Flash laat lang op zich wachten. Mozilla gaat in Firefox nu drastische maatregelen nemen. Vanaf augustus gaat Firefox alle Flash-content standaard uitzetten.

Het is de bedoeling om met Firefox 48 alle niet primaire Flash-content zoals banners uit te schakelen, en in de loop van 2017 ook primaire Flash-content standaard uit te schakelen. Hieronder vallen videospelers en Flash-spelletjes.

Tegelijk blijft het voor de gebruiker wel mogelijk om Flash-content te gebruiken. De primaire content, zoals Flash-spelletjes en video’s, moeten nog afgespeeld kunnen worden, maar gebruikers moeten er vanaf 2017 bewust voor gaan kiezen.


Firefox schetst een beeld waarin mensen een icoontje te zien krijgen op webpagina’s met Flash-inhoud, waarop ze kunnen klikken om de Flash-inhoud te activeren. Het gaat dan echt alleen nog om zichtbare content, alles wat onzichtbaar is en op de achtergrond loopt staat voortaan uit. Het is een strategie die Google ook al enige tijd in Chrome hanteert. Uiteindelijk zullen de browsers waarschijnlijk in 2017 of 2018 definitief afscheid gaan nemen van Flash.

Er is volgens Firefox een goede reden voor deze stap. In de blogpost legt het uit dat "plug-ins vaak zorgen voor problemen met de stabiliteit, prestaties en beveiliging van browsers. Dat is een uitruil die gebruikers niet zouden moeten accepteren."

De zet is een eerste stap in een poging van Firefox om weer gebruikers terug te winnen. Het stelt tot slot dat de beweging van Flash vandaan het aantal crashes flink moet verminderen en moet zorgen voor "verhoogde veiligheid, verbeterde batterijduur, kortere laadtijden en verbeterde reactiesnelheid van de browser."

Media Player – Der Voyeur ist impotent

Media Player – Der Voyeur ist impotent | Making Movies | Scoop.it
Von David Steinitz
In jener sympathisch anrüchigen Phase des europäischen Kinos, als die Übergänge zwischen Softporno und Autorenfilm fließend waren, beschloss ein junger amerikanischer Filmemacher, sein Glück nicht nur in Hollywood zu versuchen, sondern auch in Holland. Einige Jahre bevor Martin Scorsese mit "Mean Streets" und "Taxi Driver" das schnarchnasige amerikanische Kino der Siebziger auf den Kopf stellte, schrieb er 1969 am Drehbuch des niederländischen Thrillers "Besessen - Das Loch in der Wand" mit. Ein Film, der sehr offensichtlich von zwei anderen Werken beeinflusst wurde, die damals schon als Klassiker galten: "Das Fenster zum Hof" und "Augen der Angst / Peeping Tom".

"Besessen", der nun erstmals in Deutschland erhältlich ist, erzählt die Geschichte des Medizinstudenten Nils. Der steht kurz vor dem Examen, erliegt aber einer verführerischen Ablenkung: Als in seinem Apartment zufällig ein Bild von der Wand fällt, entdeckt er ein kleines Loch in der Mauer. Dadurch kann er in die Nachbarwohnung lugen, und zwar direkt ins Schlafzimmer, wo scheinbar rund um die Uhr unzüchtige Dinge geschehen. Nils entwickelt sich zum süchtigen Spanner, aber als er eines Tages scheinbar einen Mord beobachtet, muss er sich entscheiden: schweigen - oder eingreifen und sich als Voyeur zu erkennen geben. Die Kernthemen von Scorseses berühmteren Filmen - allesamt wilde Studien der Gewalt und des Voyeurismus - werden hier schon vorweggenommen. Genauso wie seine Leidenschaft für eine morbid-blutige Ästhetik, die er später noch mehr auf die Spitze trieb, als er neben der Drehbucharbeit auch zu inszenieren anfing.

Aus Scorseses Perspektive als junger Filmemacher war "Besessen" trotzdem eine außergewöhnlich perverse Kinoarbeit. Denn auch, wenn man es dem Regisseur von orgiastischen Sex-&-Crime-Spektakeln wie "Goodfellas" heute kaum glauben mag: er war zu Beginn seiner Karriere ein ziemlich schüchternes, introvertiertes und unbedarftes Kerlchen. Über seine Anfänge im Filmgeschäft sagt er im Rückblick: "Ich war im Grunde noch ein Kind, jemand der sehr behütet aufgewachsen war. Ich hatte zum Beispiel keine Ahnung, wie man sich eine Mahlzeit zubereitete."

Im holländischen Regisseur Pim de la Parra fand er jedenfalls einen gleichgesinnten Kinolüstling, mit dem er seine ganz persönliche Filmgrammatik zu entwickeln begann. De la Parra hat vor allem B-Pictures gedreht, Schauware für die kleineren Kinos jenseits der großen Hollywoodpaläste der Sechziger und Siebziger. Auch eine "Tatort"-Episode gehört zu seiner Filmografie: "Kressin und die Frau des Malers" gesendet im Jahr 1972, mit Sieghardt Rupp als grummeligem Zielfahnder Kressin.

Ihrem Protagonisten Nils stellten Scorsese und de la Parra ein fürs damalige Macho-Kino erstaunlich resolutes Mädchen an die Seite: Seine Freundin Marina ist eine Journalistin, die ebenfalls einen Mordfall aufzuklären versucht und ihrem trotz der Spannerei recht spießigen Medizinstudenten immer wieder aus der Patsche helfen muss. Ein Film letztlich über die Ohnmacht des männlichen Blicks, der zwanghaft ans Objekt seiner Begierde gefesselt ist, aber von den daraus resultierenden Konsequenzen überfordert wird. Eine merkwürdige Impotenz befällt den Studenten gerade in den Augenblicken seiner größten Beobachtungslust.

Abgesehen vom amerikanischen Drehbuchautor Scorsese markiert der Film ein schönes Stück europäischer Wiederannäherung nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg: "Besessen" ist die erste deutsch-holländische Koproduktion nach 1945. Auch das Hauptdarsteller-Pärchen ist bunt zusammengewürfelt: Die Journalistin Marina wird von der Kanadierin Alexandra Stewart gespielt, die in den Fünfzigern für ein Kunststudium nach Paris ging und eins der wilden Mädchen der Nouvelle Vague wurde. Sie drehte mit François Truffaut und Louis Malle. Medizinstudent Nils wiederum wird von Dieter Geissler gespielt, der das europäische Kino später vor allem als Produzent prägte: Er produzierte unter anderem Viscontis "Ludwig II." und "Die unendliche Geschichte".

Minuit à Paris aka. Midnight in Paris (2011), circa 2010

Minuit à Paris aka. Midnight in Paris (2011), circa 2010 | Making Movies | Scoop.it
Directed by Woody Allen. With Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams, Kathy Bates, Kurt Fuller. While on a trip to Paris with his fiancée's family, a nostalgic screenwriter finds himself mysteriously going back to the 1920s every day at midnight.

Midnight in Paris is an American 2011 romantic comedy fantasy film written and directed by Woody Allen.[3] Set in Paris, the film follows Gil Pender, a screenwriter, who is forced to confront the shortcomings of his relationship with his materialistic fiancée and their divergent goals, which become increasingly exaggerated as he travels back in time each night at midnight.[4] The movie explores themes of nostalgia and modernism.

Gil and Inez travel to Paris as a tag-along vacation on her parents' business trip. Gil is a successful Hollywood writer but is struggling on his first novel. He falls in love with the city and thinks they should move there after they get married, but Inez does not share his romantic notions of the city or the idea that the 1920s was the golden age. When Inez goes off dancing with her friends, Gil takes a walk at midnight and discovers what could be the ultimate source of inspiration for writing. Gil's daily walks at midnight in Paris could take him closer to the heart of the city but further from the woman he's about to marry.

Two By Tavel: | Making Movies | Scoop.it
Jan Bergmans's insight:

This production is a tribute to Ronald's brother, Harvey Tavel, original director of these plays and "the power behind the throne" of the genius of Ronald Tavel and The Theatre of the Ridiculous.


"Kitchenette" is the story of two couples, who interact in psychosexual, abusive ways. Occasionally a filmmaker character takes part in the action, instructing the actors what to do, all of it going beyond the absurd into the thoroughly ridiculous. Performed by Kika Child, Richard Craven*, Eva Dorrepaal, Jorge Acosta* and Norman Glick.

"Kitchenette," second production, 1970. L-R: Fred Savage, Mary Woronov, Harvey Fierstein, Mary McCormick.
