David Fincher’s ‘Mank’ Slated to Arrive on Netflix in October

This year will go down as one of the weirdest and messiest in Hollywood’s history. Thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, the release of some of the biggest movies of the year have been pushed back to late 2020 or even the summer of 2021, and it remains to be seen how The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will handle the annual Academy Awards. But even without any solid plans in place yet, Netflix is planning on giving a traditional awards season release to David Fincher‘s next film, Man...

Fluorescent blacklight comic book

Mtsyry: Octobriana 1976 is a new book from Jim Rugg featuring Octobriana, the Russian superhero star of cult 70s comics which themselves have a strange and confusing history. Rugg's incarnation will be printed in fluorescent blacklight inks by AdHouse Books, which is apparently the first time this has been done: "It should look incredible and appeal to fans of weird comics, printed matter, unique zines, 70s counter-culture." The kickstarter has 8 days left and has already blasted past its targe...

The 135 Best Podcasts to Enrich Your Mind: An Introduction to Our New List

Twenty years ago, podcasts didn't exist. Fifteen years ago, podcasts were more or less entirely for the tech-savvy early adopter, listener and producer alike. Now, across large sections of society, podcasts have become everyone's favorite thing to listen to. Just yesterday the New York Times ran a piece headlined "Joe Rogan Is the New Mainstream Media" about the enormous success of the comedian, mixed martial arts enthusiast, and interviewer now popularly seen as the face of podcasting.

The Original Star Wars Trilogy Adapted into a 14-Hour Radio Drama by NPR (1981-1996)

When it opened in 1977, Star Wars revived the old-fashioned swashbuckling adventure film. Within a few years, National Public Radio made a bet that it could do the same for the radio drama. Though still well within living memory, the "golden age of radio" in America had ended decades earlier, and with it the shows that once filled the airwaves with stories of every kind. Radio dramas seemed extinct, but then, before George Lucas' space opera turned blockbuster, so had movie serials like ...

Watch a Screen Test of 21-Year-Old Orson Welles (1937)

We remember Orson Welles as a film director, and given the influence of Citizen Kane, we do it with good reason. It certainly doesn't hurt the image of Welles-as-auteur that he was only 25 years old when he made that movie, now considered one of the greatest of all time. Not only did he direct, he co-wrote, produced, and starred, showcasing a set of acting skills he'd been honing on radio and the stage since childhood. If any man was ever born to give commanding performances, it was We...

Liberty or death? The coronavirus attacks the soul of America

Many around the U.S. are protesting lockdown measures imposed to stop the spread of the coronavirus.The choice between freedom and death was famously posed by Patrick Henry's speech in 1775."Give me liberty or give me death" was the motto that launched the American Revolution that still resonates today. The idea of freedom is central in the founding philosophy of the United States. It's also the focus of many of the nation's most cherished speeches like the oration given by one of its founding ...

Meet Notorious Art Forger Han Van Meegeren, Who Fooled the Nazis with His Counterfeit Vermeers

People love stories of successful criminals. They must possess some admirable qualities, we assume, some great daring or cunning or keen insight. Myths supplant reality, and we forget about the networks of enablers that help ruthless but not especially bright people succeed. But successful art forgers present us with another case entirely. “Forgers, by nature, prefer anonymity,” notes the site Essential Vermeer 3.0, “and therefore are rarely remembered.” Yet the evidence of their mastery...

Pearl Jam’s ‘Gigaton’: Album Review 

Orson Welles crafted the menacing noir of “Touch of Evil” and “The Lady from Shanghai,”  yet nothing the director-writer did came close, frame-by-frame, line-by-line, to the magic of “Citizen Kane.” As far as long shadows cast, jumping out of the gate with the epically angst-ridden “Ten” was Pearl Jam’s “Kane.” Its release, in 1991, meant […]

When Orson Welles Crossed Paths With Hitler (and Churchill): “He Had No Personality…. I Think There Was Nothing There.”

Dick Cavett excelled at turning the late-night talk show format into a showcase for genuinely revealing conversations (and the occasional wrestling match). Of the many riveting guests he had on throughout the 60s and 70s, some appearing multiple times, few could match Orson Welles for sheer storytelling prowess. As if in a contest to outdo himself, Welles appeared on Cavett’s show three times in 1970, and once more in 1973, as an amiable, gruff raconteur who lived a life almost impossibl...

‘Birds of Prey’ Director Cathy Yan on Crafting Old-School Action With the ‘John Wick’ Team [Interview]

Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is a movie bursting with personality. It’s poppy and gritty, slapstick-y and visceral, and most striking of all, it doesn’t confine itself to as many boxes or rules as most comic book movies do. It’s a rare comic book movie with an actual sense of freedom and spontaneity. Behind the boisterous vision is filmmaker Cathy Yan. Before Yan was writing and directing films, she was already sharpening her skills as a storyteller. A gr...

10 Great Filmmakers Who Never Won the Academy Award for Best Director

The 92nd Academy Awards are almost upon us, and if there’s one certainty going into Oscar night, it’s that some worthy talent in some category will be overlooked in favor of a lesser talent. No nominee or winner is undeserving of recognition, but snubs are also an essential part of Oscar history and directors are not immune to them. In fact, some of the greatest directors of all time have gone their whole career without receiving a proper Best Director Oscar. Film is fundamentally a collaborati...

How Walter Murch Revolutionized the Sound of Modern Cinema: A New Video Essay Explores His Innovations in American Graffiti, The Godfather & More

Walter Murch, perhaps the most famed film editor alive, is acclaimed for the work he's done for directors like Francis Ford Coppola, George Lucas, and Anthony Minghella. As innovative and influential as his ways for putting images together have been, Murch has done just as much for cinema as a sound designer. In the video above Evan Puschak, better known as the Nerdwriter, examines Murch's soundcraft through what Murch calls "worldizing," which Filmsound.org describes as "manipulating so...

Movie-watching mice pose a mystery for brain scientists: What are all those neurons doing?

For years, neuroscientists have been monitoring the brain activity of mice as they looked at a wide range of images — including the film-noir classic "Touch of Evil" — in hopes of discovering deep insights about the workings of the visual system. Now they've come upon a plot twist worthy of director Orson Welles himself. The latest results, reported today in the journal Nature Neuroscience by researchers at Seattle's Allen Institute for Brain Science and at the University of Washington, ...

14 Interesting Places to Visit in Morocco

Over two weeks we found a lot of interesting places to visit in Morocco, starting and ending in Casablanca. The “real trip” started in Marrakesh.

Continuing, we drove southwest towards Icht where we could see Algeria off in the distance. Then we turned north and headed to Essaouira via numerous stops detailed below to complete the loop and finish at the Casablanca Airport.
