Barry Lyndon Maria Candida Gentile: Dry Herbs and Air

  When I first sniffed Barry Lyndon at Pitti Fragranze 2011, I immediately realized that the fragrance was completely different from the rest of the niche scents presented at that exhibition. Dim and non-provocative, it is of medium durability with minimal sillage and projection and as modest and timid as a field mouse. It also is without CO2 extracts of rare roses or orris, and without mega... Read full article: Barry Lyndon Maria Candida Gentile: Dry Herbs and Air from Fragrantica Perfumes a...

Chris Evangelista’s Top 10 Movies of 2018

Several people have told me they thought 2018 was a disappointing year for movies. I say: nuts to that. Any year that gives us Nicolas Cage fighting with a chainsaw, Ethan Hawke having a crisis of faith, and Rachel Weisz, Emma Stone and Olivia Colman in a power-grabbing love triangle is a-okay in my book. Below you’ll find my top 10 movies of the year – a list I struggled with, because there were so many films competing to make it into these top spots. In addition to the 10 below, let me just t...

Queen Anne Costume Drama 'The Favourite' Dazzles with Humor, Tragedy, Weirdness

None A costume drama for people who hate costume dramas, The Favourite is often hilarious, always dark, and infinitely weird. Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos chooses the haughty setting of Queen Anne's 18th century royal estate for his lesbian love triangle. The technical mastery of Barry Lyndon meets the emotional gamesmanship of All About Eve as we luxuriate in all manner of absurdist debauchery. The Favourite provides deliciously wicked fun that boasts some of the best performances and sump...

Akira Kurosawa’s 100 Favorite Movies

In movies like Seven Samurai and High and Low, director Akira Kurosawa took the cinematic language of Hollywood and improved on it, creating a vigorous, muscular method of visual storytelling that became a stylistic playbook for the likes of Martin Scorsese, George Lucas and Francis Ford Coppola. In movies like Ikiru, The Bad Sleep Well and The Lower Depths, Kurosawa relentlessly struggled to find the rays of light among the shadows of the human soul. This philosophical urgency combined...

‘The House with a Clock in Its Walls’ Director Eli Roth Discusses Amblin, Steven Spielberg, and More [Interview]

Eli Roth has never thought of himself as a horror director, so the Hostel and Cabin Fever director’s first PG-rated and kids-friendly movie, The House with a Clock in Its Walls, isn’t that surprising of a choice for the filmmaker. As Roth sees it, his previous movies led him to directing Amblin’s adaptation of John Bellairs‘ novel, published in 1973. This is exactly the sort of lavish and old school spectacle he’s always dreamed about making. While obviously tamer, The House with a Clock in Its...

2001 in 70mm: Pod bay doors look better than ever, still won’t open (ars technica)

If I'm deep-down honest with myself, the reason I love 2001: A Space Odyssey is the same reason I love most Stanley Kubrick films: because I love watching people and things move inevitably from Point A to Point B. He's done it with spaceships (2001), armies (Barry Lyndon), trenches (Paths of Glory), Big Wheels (The Shining), leapfrogging (Full Metal Jacket), and walking the streets of New York (Eyes Wide Shut). Ars Senior Editor Lee Hutchinson once told me that, growing up, he was so fascinated ...

Trailer for Underrated Filmmaking Doc 'Filmworker' About Leon Vitali

"Stanley assigned Leon to me." Kino Lorber has debuted a trailer for the indie documentary Filmworker, telling the story of "filmworker" and Stanley Kubrick's right-hand man Leon Vitali. This is a MUST see for film geeks and cinephiles, a fascinating look behind-the-scenes. Most probably don't know who Leon Vitali is, that's because he never was in the spotlight at all, but once you see this doc everything will change. Vitali started out as an up-and-coming actor in England, first landing a ...

(Not So) Famous Firsts: Ridley Scott’s “The Duelists”

Ridley Scott is unusual amongst A-list directors. He has several classics to his name, but is still not mentioned in the same breath as directors like Steven Spielberg or James Cameron. They are household names while Scott still feels like he has to prove himself to his audience. This may be because for every great film he directed (Alien, Blade Runner, Thelma & Louise, Gladiator) he made a lot of clunkers (1492, Robin Hood, Prometheus, Exodus: Gods and Kings). Scott has also never developed his...

The Toxic Masculinity of Stanley Kubrick's 'Barry Lyndon'

2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) crystalizes a rather nocturnal view of heterosexual, white masculinity that pervades much of Stanley Kubrick's films: after slithering from the primordial slime, we jockey for position in ceaseless turf wars over land, money, and women. Those wielding the largest bone/weapon claim the spoils. Despite our self-delusions about transcending our simian stirrings through our advanced technology and knowledge, we remain mired in our ancestral origins of bru...

Every Academy Award Winner for Best Cinematography in One Supercut: From 1927’s Sunrise to 2016’s La La Land

A list of chronological Oscar winners often tells you more about the state of the culture than the state of the art.

So too is the award for Best Cinematography, as seen in the seven-minute supercut above.

Wes Anderson’s Cinematic Debt to Stanley Kubrick Revealed in a Side-By-Side Comparison

Most film fans hold the work of Stanley Kubrick and Wes Anderson in high regard, even if they don't find one, the other, or both to their particular taste. And at first glance, it might seem hard to understand what kind of taste could possibly encompass both Kubrick and Anderson. The former made mostly complex and emotionally chilled period pieces, visually grand yet stark, tinged with grim humor, and possessing a dim view of humanity. The latter makes colorful, outwardly high-spirited come...

How Many of These 15 Weird Photography Facts Did You Know?

In all this time, a lot of curious things have happened to our beloved pastime. This time we'll relax a bit and get into some weird facts about photography that will probably surprise you. Enjoy!

Director Gary Sherman on The Exorcist

Death Line director Gary Sherman remembers how the 1973 horror masterpiece The Exorcist affected him It’s pointless for us to over-rhapsodize about William Freidkin‘s landmark 1973 horror film The Exorcist. The first filmed adaptation of William Peter Blatty‘s harrowing novel shocked the world upon release and then later, upon network television screenings in the latter part of the decade, where kids too young to see it, saw it, wrecking the cozy confines of their family homes. Over four dec...

Dept. of Oddities

There's a new movie called "Bokeh." Listed under "Trivia" at IMDB, it says, "The title is a photography term for the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in out-of-focus parts of an image." Which is at least a succinct and correct definition of bokeh! Mike (Thanks to Robert Roaldi) P.S. The bokeh movies for me are still the old Kubrick film Barry Lyndon, parts of which were shot by candlelight, no small trick in the film era, and Pixar's Ratatouille, for which friend-o'-TOP and protean stre...

How Stanley Kubrick Made His Masterpieces: An Introduction to His Obsessive Approach to Filmmaking

As each semester in my film course rolls around, it’s more and more apparent how time depletes the pop culture currency of those directors who did not make it into the 21st Century. A knowledge of Stanley Kubrick used to be a given, as was the understanding of what “A Stanley Kubrick Film” meant to film fans. Now he is a solution to a weird join-the-dots, as I watch students who know The Shining as a classic horror film grok suddenly that the same director made the headtrip 2001: A Space...
