Claudia Cardinal is on the poster:



Of course, people are complaining because of the photoshoped silhouette to make her look thinner:

Off-Topic Discussion / Baby Driver (Edgar Wright, 2017)
« on: March 13, 2017, 09:10:57 AM »
I'm pretty much alone here screaming "GENIUS" everytime Edgar releases something, but here it goes:

First review (the movie juste premiered at SXSW):

Quote
There has never been a movie that feels quite like Baby Driver: a violent action movie with the soul of a musical, a car chase extravaganza whose hero extols the virtues of being decent, and a loving homage to a genre that feels happy to coexist with its peers rather than mock them. This movie is a miracle. Hell, it’s an Edgar Wright movie.

I'm not crazy about the trailer, but the premise + Mr Wright is all I ask. Actually, it's a lie: Wright's name is enough to get me excited, but still, the pitch is something I want to see done by him.

Maybe somebody posted it before (he talks a little about the Scorsese restoration):

Off-Topic Discussion / Jacques Audiard
« on: February 11, 2017, 02:21:30 AM »
This guy definitely needs a thread. He's the best French filmmaker since the Nouvelle Vague...but (unfortunately) isn't the best screenwriter. His upcoming film is getting quite exiting and may correct all the inherent flaws of his 3 latest ones:

Once Upon A Time In America / Nicolas Winding Refn about Leone
« on: May 09, 2016, 07:51:43 AM »
He specificaly says "OUATITW" but I think he mixed things up with "OUATIA", which is why I put it here:

Quote
"Yeah. The theory is that that's what killed Sergio Leone - when they recut Once Upon a Time in the West for the American market. They changed the whole movie around from this extremely beautiful, poetic story of epic proportions and made it into a 90-minute movie. The story is that that's what gave him his heart attack."

Hey guys. Another cool project I've been working on for 2 months: a music video for a song titled "Zombie Apocalypse". We should release it online in may. A couple screenshots:

Winner: Sergio Leone's OUATIA.

Off-Topic Discussion / Jacques Rivette (1928 - 2016)

I haven't seen much of his work. I suppose he did some important stuff at the time. He was a scumbag:

Titanic (James Cameron, 1997)

I agree completely with what Jean-Luc said in this week’s Elle: it’s garbage. Cameron isn’t evil, he’s not an asshole like Spielberg. He wants to be the new De Mille. Unfortunately, he can’t direct his way out of a paper bag. On top of which the actress is awful, unwatchable, the most slovenly girl to appear on the screen in a long, long time. That’s why it’s been such a success with young girls, especially inhibited, slightly plump American girls who see the film over and over as if they were on a pilgrimage: they recognize themselves in her, and dream of falling into the arms of the gorgeous Leonardo.

Funny Games (Michael Haneke, 1997)

What a disgrace, just a complete piece of shit! I liked his first film, The Seventh Continent (1989), very much, and then each one after that I liked less and less. This one is vile, not in the same way as John Woo, but those two really deserve each other – they should get married. And I never want to meet their children! It’s worse than Kubrick with A Clockwork Orange (1971), a film that I hate just as much, not for cinematic reasons but for moral ones. I remember when it came out, Jacques Demy was so shocked that it made him cry. Kubrick is a machine, a mutant, a Martian. He has no human feeling whatsoever. But it’s great when the machine films other machines, as in 2001 (1968).
