Jozef Van Wissem and Jim Jarmusch Continue their Unlikely Collaboration with the Dark, Droning 'An Attempt to Draw Aside the Veil'

None Famed independent film director Jim Jarmusch never really gained notoriety for his musical exploits, and Dutch experimental lute player Jozef Van Wissem isn't exactly a household name, so it may not be a surprise that a musical collaboration between the two artists would fly under the radar.But the truth is, they've worked together frequently over the past few years. Beginning with a chance meeting in New York City in 2006, Jarmusch and Van Wissem have since collaborated on three studio al...

Rotterdam Film Review: ‘Take Me Somewhere Nice’

Take a hefty amount of Jim Jarmusch, mix in a few heaping tablespoons of David Lynch, leaven it all with Bosnian absurdism and you can more or less envision “Take Me Somewhere Nice,” the stylishly quirky debut feature from Ena Sendijarević that won Rotterdam’s Special Jury Prize for exceptional artistic achievement. The film certainly looks […]

‘The Nightingale’ Review: Jennifer Kent’s Revenge Drama is Unrelentingly Cruel, Yet Essential Viewing [Sundance]

How much brutality can you take from a movie? How much is too much? How many scenes of pain, suffering and bloodletting can you stand before you throw up your hands and cry uncle? With The Nightingale , her follow-up to the horror hit  The Babadook , director Jennifer Kent seems to posing those direct questions to the audience. The filmmaker knows that we, as a species, have a thirst for violence. But that thirst has its limits. Kent wants to push beyond those limits, and then keep going. A...

10 Best Tilda Swinton Movies

10 Best Tilda Swinton Movies Independent filmmaking’s favorite weirdo, Tilda Swinton is the pale, ghost-like Englishwoman that so many casting directors have flocked to in recent years. With nearly 100 acting credits to her name over the course of a career that has been going strong since the mid-80s, Swinton is currently one of cinema’s most valuable assets. She’s even managed to make her way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, somehow. While she might appear in bigger films from time to ti...

2019 movie preview: Marvel looms large, but look who else is prepping releases

Before we get into the most obvious thing about the upcoming movies for 2019 – which is, Marvel is going to make a lot of money, again – can we first look forward to some great filmmakers who’ll be doing exactly what they want to do? Like Martin Scorsese, whose Netflix-backed “The Irishman” reunites our greatest living filmmaker with old cronies Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci and Harvey Keitel, and tosses Al Pacino into the bargain. It’s a mob epic that spans decades, with a lot of digital de-aging, ...

Behold the Original Deck of Oblique Strategies Cards, Handwritten by Brian Eno Himself

"Honor thy error as a hidden intention." "Work at a different speed." "Try faking it!" These suggestions will sound familiar to everyone who's ever flipped through the deck of cards known as Oblique Strategies. You can now do that digitally, of course, but Oblique Strategies remains an essentially physical experience, one whose shuffling and drawing reminds the user that they're drawing from the well of chance for a way to break them through a creative impasse or just rethink part of a project....

Watch Jeff Beck Smash His Guitar While Jimmy Page & the Yardbirds Jam By His Side: A Classic Scene from Antonioni’s Blowup (1966)

Art film and rock and roll have, since the 60s, been soulmates of a kind, with many an acclaimed director turning to musicians as actors, commissioning rock stars as soundtrack artists, and filming scenes with bands. Before Nicolas Roeg, Jim Jarmusch, David Lynch, Martin Scorsese and other rock-loving auteurs did all of the above, there was Michelangelo Antonioni, who barreled into the English-language market, under contract with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, with a trilogy of films steeped in th...

Whicker: Cleveland was his NBA home, but Akron is where LeBron’s legacy is

AKRON, Ohio — When he comes back to Akron, he comes back to Swenson’s. Sometimes he makes it his first stop. For 84 years they’ve been selling burgers, now in 10 locations from Cleveland to Columbus. But, like LeBron James himself, Swenson’s started here. You park outside and wait for one of the hard-sprinting kids to come to your window with a menu and a tray. James and his guys have been known to pull up in an SUV or a Hummer, and when the window rolls down and that unmistakable face smiles, t...

Even in 2018, Filmgoers Are in the Thrall of Vampires

Why are people so obsessed with vampires? The mythical creatures have been gracing our screens since the dawn of cinema, with 1922’s  Nosferatu setting a gold standard. Much like vampires themselves, their film depictions don’t seem to have an expiration. When you think of vampires, you probably think of horror, but the beauty of these immortal beings is they can be placed within any genre. They started out as horror characters, and while there will always be a scary aspect to them (thei...

How Jim Jarmusch Gets Creative Ideas from William S. Burroughs’ Cut-Up Method and Brian Eno’s Oblique Strategies

As the nameless assassin protagonist of Jim Jarmusch's The Limits of Control makes his way through Spain, he meets several different, similarly mysterious figures, each time at a different café. Each time he orders two espressos — not a double espresso, but two espressos in separate cups. Each time his contact arrives and asks, in Spanish, whether he speaks Spanish, to which he responds that he doesn't. Each conversation that follows ends with an exchange of matchboxes, and each one the assassi...
