Cold War – The Criterion Collection Blu-ray

Some pictures of the Criterion Collection release of Paweł Pawlikowski’s heartbreaking and gorgeously photographed epic romance Cold War (2018) which I picked up recently, together with Silence Of The Lambs and Blow Out. Cold War is one of the most beautiful and affecting films I watched this year, shot in stunning black and white by the Polish cinematographer Lukasz Zal ( who also recently served as DP on Charlie Kaufman’s I’m Thinking Of Ending Things ). The absence of distracting colors in...

How a New Generation of Politically-Charged Films are Reawakening the Spirit of Italian Neorealism

(Welcome to The Soapbox, the space where we get loud, feisty, political, and opinionated about anything and everything.) It’s difficult to place into words the impact Italian Neorealism has personally had on me. The genre speaks to me on a visceral level. The old Italian films, born out of desperation, still hold up against the blockbusters of today. In an age where authoritarianism is making a comeback, we are witnessing a subconscious reemergence of the formerly communist left-supporte...

Poland’s Formidable Filmmakers Versus The Right-Wing Nationalist Government

The country’s cinema has a redoubtable history (think of Kieślowski and Wajda), famous auteurs at their peak (Paweł Pawlikowski, Agnieszka Holland), and an impressive younger generation. And they’re all facing the culture war being waged by the Law & Justice Party that heads the government. As Pawlikowski puts it, “we have a common enemy, so there’s a sense of common purpose.” – The Guardian

New York Film Festival 2019 Week 2 Recap: ‘Varda by Agnes,’ ‘Saturday Fiction,’ ‘Motherless Brooklyn’

The 57th annual New York Film Festival started off strong, with Martin Scorsese’s interrogation of time in his mob masterpiece The Irishman. So it is perhaps rather fitting that the whirlwind two weeks of prestige films will end with a movie displaced out of time. Edward Norton’s noir passion project Motherless Brooklyn was a somewhat baffling capper to this year’s New York Film Festival, which was filled with its share of hits and misses. One of those misses is the impenetrable Lou Ye black-an...

‘Cold War’ Returns to Gold Standard on Cinematography

“Cold War,” Pawel Pawlikowski’s tale of star-crossed lovers in the aftermath of World War II, is framed in a distinctive squarish, 1.37:1 frame. With deep focus black-and-white photography by Pawlikowski’s fellow Pole Lukasz Zal, the film has been gaining interest beyond the lensing community — “Cold War” is nominated for three Oscars: foreign-language film, directing […]

2019 BAFTA Winners: ‘Roma’ Takes the Top Prizes, But ‘The Favourite’ Has a Strong Showing Too

Last night, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) announced their winners. The 2019 BAFTA winners mostly followed suit with the rest of the awards season by giving Roma not only Best Film, but also their award for Film Not in the English Language. Best Director also went to Alfonso Cuarón, who won Best Cinematography too. But the British-made film The Favourite actually came away with more awards. Find out more about the 2019 BAFTA winners below. The Favourite came away with...

The Biggest 2019 Oscars Snubs and Surprises

Look, we’re the first to admit that the entire concept of an “Oscar snub” is a little bit silly. It’s not like everyone in the Academy gets together and secretly plots to teach a filmmaker or actor a lesson by refusing to nominate them for a golden statuette. That’s simply not how it works on any level. And yet, it can’t help but feel deliberate and personal because we’re dealing with an award that can make or break careers. When someone who was supposed to get nominated gets left out, it feels...

2019 BAFTA Nominations Show Plenty of Love for ‘The Favourite’, Nearly Shuts Out ‘Black Panther’

Overnight, our friends across the pond announced the 2019 BAFTA nominations, the equivalent of the Academy Awards in the United Kingdom honoring the preceding year in film. It should come as no surprise that the British Academy of Film and Television Arts was more than ready to show plenty of love for The Favourite, a truly British film in every sense of the word. The film led the pack with 12 nominations, including Best Film, Outstanding British Film, Best Director, and nods for Olivia Colman,...

Pawel Pawlikowski's 'Cold War' Is a Lustrous, Slyly Subversive Melodrama

None There's a true love guiding Cold War, Pawel Pawlikowski's first film since 2015's Oscar-winning Ida. The truth isn't in the depth of the emotion, though, but in its blemished sincerity; it's a story about two lovers who stay involved, but not necessarily together, for 15 years, and who never truly convince each other (or us, as viewers) that love itself is enough. The film, set in 1950s Europe, is extravagant but unsentimental, and never strays far from the stark realities of wartime. Tha...

Are these the most influential films of 2018?

The summer blockbusters, superhero franchises and sci-fi sequels might rule the box office this and every year, but cash at the box office does not prestige or history make. That’s the thesis at least of MoMa Contenders 2018, an annual curation of the most influential films, though the film curators at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City aren’t averse to honoring a big-budget box-office smash if its significance can be measured in more than the millions it earned.

Critic’s Notebook: This New York Film Festival Is Definitely Not Boring

Cannes: ‘Ida’ director plunges deeper into Polish history

CANNES, France (AP) — While the rest of the world, and the Academy Awards, were celebrating Pawel Pawlikowski’s film “Ida” as one of the best films of 2013, the quiet, black-and-white film was swept up into political debate back in Poland, Pawlikowski’s home country. It still mystifies the filmmaker why Poland’s ruling right-wing party, which […]
