‘Piercing’ Director Nicolas Pesce on His Gnarly, Surprising Horror Mash-Up [Interview]

Piercing doesn’t ever pull a punch. The title of writer-director Nicolas Pesce‘s adaptation of Ryû Murakami‘s novel of the same name couldn’t be more fitting. From its earliest images, audience members will know if this movie, which features visceral body horror, S&M, and cruel and ridiculous laughs, speaks to them. Pesce, who previously directed The Eyes of My Mother and will follow this up with a remake of The Grudge, again establishes himself as a bold director with Piercing. “Pesce delivers...

Half of Martin Scorsese’s ‘The Irishman’ Will Feature De-Aged Actors, May Arrive in October

It seems like every few months we learn a little more about Martin Scorsese‘s ambitious inter-generational gangster movie, The Irishman, and a little less about when this film will finally come out. Since rumblings about the film first started happening in 2010, Scorsese fans have waited with bated breath for The Irishman release date to be announced. When Netflix picked up the drama, the end appeared to be in sight. Then 2017 passed us by. Then 2018. And not a word about this film has been spo...

‘The Devil In the White City’ Movie is Now a Hulu Series From Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese

Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio were hoping to one day adapt Erik Larson’s fantastic book The Devil in the White City into a feature film, with Scorsese directing, and DiCaprio starring as the notorious H.H. Holmes, thought to be America’s first serial killer. But now, things have changed. Instead of a movie, we’re getting a Devil in the White City Hulu show, and while Scorsese and DiCaprio will still be producing, it’s doubtful their involvement will go much further than that. And that’s...

10 Rewatchable Movies You Just Can’t Turn Off

10 rewatchable movies you just can’t turn off One main characteristic of cinephiles is that their favorite movies are incredibly rewatchable.  Sometimes, these rewatchable movies are a bit odd and esoteric.

Tim Blake Nelson plays one of the deadliest and happiest men in the West in The Ballad of Buster Scruggs. Buster Scruggs isn’t a gunslinger who growls and grimaces, but instead sings and dances and enjoys every moment without thinking it’ll be his last.

Martin Scorsese Creates a List of the 11 Scariest Horror Films

"When it comes to ripe old frighteners — or to any other overheated genre — Scorsese is the most ardent of proselytizers," writes the New Yorker's Anthony Lane in a review of that respected director's ripe-old-frightener-flavored Shutter Island, "so much so that I would prefer to hear him enthuse about Hammer Horror films, say, than to watch a Hammer Horror film." And though no Hammer productions appear on it, Scorsese, who often seems as much film enthusiast as filmmaker, has put togeth...

‘First Reformed’ Director Paul Schrader on Why the Film Industry is Dying [Interview]

You only need to take a glance at First Reformed director Paul Schrader’s extensive filmography to know that he’s a risk taker. Not just because of the subjects he choses or the approach he takes, but also in method. He’s worked in the studio system with big budgets, but he has also self-financed his work through Kickstarter. Schrader’s work bristles with themes of obsession and loneliness. Every film feels like an opportunity to explore those themes in a different context. What’s loneliness w...
