‘Mank’ Takes the Top Prize at the 2021 American Society of Cinematographers Awards

Awards season is nearly over. The ASC Awards marks the last guild or society to hand out their prizes before the 93rd Academy Awards holds is ceremony next week, and the American Society of Cinematographers threw in a bit of a last-minute curveball. David Fincher’s Mank took the top prize at the 2021 ASC Awards, besting awards season favorite Nomadland, which has been handily taking the top honor at nearly every awards season ceremony over the past few months. Does it mean much? Probably not. B...

How the worlds of The Mandalorian (and Baby Yoda) got made in Manhattan Beach

“The Mandalorian,” the Star Wars series that became Disney+’s first big breakout hit, brought all kinds of planets and the spaceships that travel among them to the streaming video universe. And it did it all in California, almost entirely at the MBS Media Campus in Manhattan Beach. How? For the most part thanks to extensive use of a new soundstage technology that employs a horsehoe-shaped wall and ceiling of light-emitting diodes in place of the green- and bluescreens commonly used for special e...

‘The Mandalorian’ Keeps on Taking One Step Forward and Two Steps Back

This post contains spoilers for The Mandalorian. The third episode of The Mandalorian moves the plot in a definite direction, but the show remains frustratingly shackled. Upon turning in his target — the yet unnamed Baby Yoda — the Mandalorian (also unnamed) collects his reward, has a change of heart and eventually makes off with the infant, as one would expect. The episode ends on an interesting cliffhanger, wherein the Mandalorian and his young companion jet off without a home base or dest...

Oscars 2019: Before you bet on the Academy Awards, you might want to read this

Here are my expert Oscar predictions. And my “expert” advice is: Don’t bet on anything this year! At least not in the Best Picture race. Yes, it’s been hard to predict that winner since the academy expanded the nomination count and introduced a preferential balloting system for the category about 10 years ago. But other factors make this one the biggest free-for-all Best Picture race of the decade. For one thing, all of the major Hollywood guilds have given their highest honors to different film...

Devourer of Planets: Dissecting the Nuance-Free Yet Brilliant Filmmaking of Adam McKay’s ‘Vice’

Vice bides its time, at least at first. It opens with a brief, Paul Greengrass-style glimpse of the Situation Room on 9/11. Accompanying this cinéma vérité are snippets of all the war and torture that would follow; Adam McKay, now on a roll after The Big Short , is as much a documentarian or video essayist as he is a fiction filmmaker, setting the stage for events that we, the public, are all too familiar with. However, the film’s opening credits don’t arrive until 12 minutes later. In the ...
