Article: Hollywood’s top 10 maverick directors

Hollywood demands plenty from directors. In a forest of remade classics, “Chipmunks” sequels and other safe, dependable investments, studios want bankable reasons to invest in innovation. Indie filmdom has long been a launchpad for Hollywood careers, but only a select few filmmakers can claim to have gone against the grain with enough force to change…

The rise of the film critic filmmaker

Article: The rise of the film critic filmmaker

The line between film critic and film maker has always been a blurry one. “Battleship Potemkin” director Sergei Eisenstein wrote essays and books about the language of motion pictures that continue to be studied by film students to this day. Many of the biggest figures of the French New Wave, from Jean-Luc Godard to Francois…

The five-albums test for movies

Article: The five-albums test for movies

At The AV Club, Steven Hyden wrote a really interesting piece today calling for a new measurement of excellence in the world of popular music. In addition to judging a band’s “popularity” and “critical respectibility” he suggests you apply “the five-album test” to determine musical greatness. If an artist puts out five great albums in…

Article: A “2001″ Acid Freakout

At a screening of “2001: A Space Odyssey” at Hollywood’s Egyptian Theater on Friday, a man named Robert apparently attempted to chemically enhance his viewing of Stanley Kubrick’s sci-fi classic, ’60s style. Hilarity ensued. As Todd McCarthy reports at indieWIRE: Toward the end of the film, when Keir Dullea’s Dr. Dave Bowman finds himself in…

Kubrick and Scorsese, not as violent as their most famous films might indicate.

Article: Kubrick and Scorsese, not as violent as their most famous films might indicate.

When someone says that Stanley Kubrick and Martin Scorsese are his or her two favorite directors, it doesn’t mean that much. Both are responsible for films of cold, hard, almost universally valued quality — they’re almost unassailable cinematic institutions (there’s always going to be someone around to insist a director is overrated). They’re also dorm-room…

Article: Leelee Sobieski’s Blissful Adulthood

It’s tempting to still think of Leelee Sobieski as that underage ingénue from “Deep Impact,” “Eyes Wide Shut,” “The Glass House” and her Emmy-nominated role in the TV miniseries “Joan of Arc,” but according to the fair-skinned beauty (who turns 27 this month and, as of December, is a new mother), the opposite is true:…

Mr. Lipes’ Opus

Article: Mr. Lipes’ Opus

Though best known for his lyrically stunning work as the director of photography on “Afterschool” and “Wild Combination: A Portrait of Arthur Russell,” Jody Lee Lipes would rather be known as a filmmaker than as a cinematographer. His directorial feature debut, the provocative doc “Brock Enright: Good Times Will Never Be the Same,” premiered at…

Ingmar Bergman’s favorite Muppet.

Article: Ingmar Bergman’s favorite Muppet.

W. Magazine‘s article on the auctioning off of the late Ingmar Bergman’s home and belongings confirmed what I’d long suspected: Animal was, in fact, his favorite Muppet. Bergman was also known to relish the odd blockbuster during his two daily film viewings at a screening room ten minutes’ drive from his house. Watching “Jurassic Park,”…
