Off-Topic Discussion / Re: Michael Mann: NY Times Article
« on: Yesterday at 10:54:00 AM »
I watched a nice special on Michael Mann this morning on the US "CBS Sunday Morning Show". I've been looking forward to "Ferrari" for a while, but I also found out he's publishing a book "Heat 2" this week!

Of course there was:

You just need to give it its full name and spell ?paradiso? correctly

Interesting news though! Anything Tornatore touches is of course purest gold. But the the theatrical version is better than the longer cut in this case, so it will be interesting how this ends up.

Given Mosfilm?s funding and the current environment, I doubt that will happen soon.

It is available for viewing online as one of the films MosFilm made freely available on its YouTube channel.

First the Osterman Weekend director?s cut, and now this:

Imprint are soon to become my favorite label!

Also, regarding sampling classic works, I recall him explicitly mentioning several cases ? was BACH not one of them? Perhaps it was supposed to be implicit?

It is indeed ?o samba? in Portuguese, which is masculine. But its Brazilian origins are not from Portuguese but from Bantu from Angola?hence the alternative ?semba?. In Spanish, it became feminine as ?la samba?, perhaps more via association with ?la bamba? than simply its ?a? ending (?problema? is masculine after all), and it seems that it more recently went the same way in Italian.

It?s feminine in French too.

In any case, failing to be a language pedant has nothing to do with the topic of the documentary.

One nice tidbit. I had never realized that Deborah?s theme for OUATIA was originally supposed to be someone else?s theme in an entirely different movie

I bought it from Amazon UK for shipping to east coast US. The shipping cost almost as much as the Blu-ray though! Took about a week and a half to arrive. I?m assuming it?s region B locked. I just automatically set my player to B so never tested that.

Looks like there is a book in Italian of Tornatore in conversation with Morricone too. I might try to get a copy of that to stumble through based on my knowledge of other Romance languages.

Wow, what an informative documentary. And expertly put together. Many talking heads, naturally, but everything was beautifully weaved together with a very talented filmmaker?s touch. I?m so glad Tornatore was at the helm.

Regarding the music, yes many of his famous pieces weren?t in there, but many were as well. What was nice was how they focused on some of the less ?melodic? ones and the role they played. The stuff on ?The Mission? was absolutely spellbinding.

They?re about to release it in the UK with English subs. You should?ve waited.

Don?t knock Tornatore. He is the greatest?after Leone and Peckinpah. Everything he touches is gold. That?s a fact.

And in all those years I could not clarify why the OSTERMAN agent would shoot himself

Just watched your doc on the disc. So it?s still a mystery eh?

The directors cut was at least as good as I remember the preview cut being?and probably better (haven?t watched it in a while). Far better than the terrible theatrical cut. I still need to watch your side by side comparison of the directors versus theatrical ones.

Thanks so much for sharing this with the world!

By the way, how about suggesting to Imprint that they release the Japanese version of convoy. I?m still trying to get my hands on that and so sad I missed it. It occasionally pops up on Japanese auction sites but at unbelievably ridiculous prices.

Yes, they have it on still. Shipping internationally can be a challenge though. I?m fortunate to have family over there.

Mike, you should have given us a heads up that this was released in Australia already!
