Sergio Leone News / Sergio Leone Masterclass from 1986

Film Locations / Checco er Carettiere
« on: September 21, 2018, 03:10:26 AM »
This isn't literally about a movie location but I feel like this is the most appropriate thread.

I was in Toscana and Rome for 15 days a few weeks ago, where I got to see countless masterpieces from Bernini and Caravaggio (the most Leonian painter if you ask me). One evening, while we were dining in a nice restaurant in Trastevere, Rome, I sent a stupid "Hey, I'm in Rome!" text message to our beloved Drinkanddestroy. He quickly advised (commanded?) that I go to "that restaurant with the school picture of Ennio and Sergio". I have to say I had totally forgotten about that place. A quick Google search taught me that said restaurant was called "Checco er Carettiere" and was exactly 7 minutes away from me. Needless to say, we went there.

I got to have a nice chat with the restaurant's crew who were all warm, friendly and helpful. They seemed surprised and delighted to see foreign tourists asking about Leone and Morricone. We also shook hands with the current owner (granddaughter of the founder of the restaurant, who's also on the school pic).

You'll find my photos here:

More pics of famous people who went to that restaurant on the official website:
The pic you can see at the top of this page with Leone, Garcia Marquez, M. Ali and DeNiro was shot in 1982 inside the restaurant (the wall behind them is quite recognizable).

Off-Topic Discussion / Filmmakers about Filmmakers

I really didn't know where to post the following clip since there is no thread about Friedkin, Refn, Sorcerer or Only God Forgives. So here it is:

Friedkin's reaction to Refn's claim that Only God Forgives is a masterpiece:

While we're there, another cool clip I found a couple of months ago:

Off-Topic Discussion / Noodles_Leone to NYC
« on: January 31, 2018, 08:35:12 AM »
Hey guys,
So I'm going to New York in march. Here is my schedule:

10th-15th : filming a short movie with a friend of mine you don't know and a former board member (Lewis Hawk)
16th-17th : writing alone or with former board member Lewis Hawk in the city
18th-24th : sightseeing with the girlfriend

I'd be glad to meet up with some of you.

Also, we're looking for interesting looking parts of the city that we don't see that often in films and commercials. Any idea?

Off-Topic Discussion / New videos by Noodles_Leone
« on: January 26, 2018, 05:22:50 AM »
Here are my 2 first videos of the year:



The official film of the year for the city of Marseille. One of my best on set experiences, with a great (and big) crew. Most of what we shot didn't end up in the movie because of the need to include many "postcard" stockshots, but I'm still quite happy with the result:

Official upload and its 166K view:
Much better quality upload on Vimeo:



The official music video of Romane Serda's new single, shot with a VERY minimal crew (we were 2).

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Pemiere Classics (french magazine)
« on: January 19, 2018, 05:05:07 AM »
One of the biggest movies magazine in France is called Premiere. They're starting a new collections of "Mooks" (in their own words: "contraction of magazine and book") called Premiere Classics. The second issue is about GBU.
I bought it despite the terrible layout and artworks but I don't think I'll have the time to read it in the coming week.

Off-Topic Discussion / David Fincher Appreciation Thread
« on: October 20, 2017, 02:33:49 AM »
Since Mr Fincher is probably the most exiting, inspiring and important filmmaker working today, and since I'm always posting links about his work all over the place, here is a thread just for him. I'll probably be only talking to myself here since I don't think anybody on this board gets it but I don't care.

For the record, here is what I think of each of his films:

Social Network (2010) 10/10 - the greatest movie of the XXIth century, by far.
Zodiac 9/10 - an incredible technical achievement and a fascinating dive into darkness
Fight Club (1999) 8.5/10 - yeah, it's so 90's now, including the way it takes itself too seriously, but still almost perfect
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo 8/10 - the only thing between this movie and greatness s its total lack of ambition
Se7en (1995) 8/10 - cool as hell and still the best noir cinematography I've ever seen
Gone Girl (2014) 8/10 - the most modern take on love
The Game (1997) 7/10 - fun and cold as hell
Panic Room (2002) 6/10 - small, clean, ultra efficient
Alien 3 (1992) 5/10 - the movie that almost made David quit filmmaking
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008) 5/10 - his only shot at something that isn't cold. Fincher is definitely not at ease here, but there are elements of greatness all over the place as well as a side of the filmmaker we have yet to explore again.

He's also worked on quite a lot of TV shows, but the only 2 that got released so far are:

House of Cards (directed the first 2 episodes, executive producer) - boring show that lacks brilliant dialogues but the first pilot is often mesmerizing
Mindhunter (directed 4 episodes, executive producer) - I'm in the middle of season 1, it's definitely the drama you don't want to miss
