"American Hustle": Shop Talk with Production Designer Judy Becker

#BUFFBLOG (December 2013)

BUFF Tidings! And what a great time of the year it is to be at the pictures. Christmas round the corner, Oscar-bait movies ten-a-penny, what’s not to like? Digital distribution perhaps?

Interview with Malcolm D. Lee writer/director The Best Man Holiday

If you are black and living on earth you've seen the movie The Best Man at some point in your life. In fact, How many times have you watched it over the last 14 Years? (comments welcome).

The opening montage flashes briefl...

"Blue Jasmine" Blossoms with Cate Blanchett

The first utterances you hear in Woody Allen's latest picture, Blue Jasmine, come from a manic First Class passenger who blabs on and on about herself. That passenger is title  character Jasmine, whose marriage to Madoff avatar Hal (Alec Baldwin) is now as finished as her 1% coffers, and who's going nowhere fast. She's also played by Cate Blanchett, which helps explain why we not only put up with her snobbish affectations, we can't g...

"The Book Thief" Snatches Inspiration from the Novel

user
  The elevator pitch for The Book Thief isn't exactly grabby: the story takes place in Nazi Germany; it's narrated by Death; and almost everyone gets killed in the end. Yet both the bestselling novel and its screen adaptation have that certain ich weiss nicht that keeps people coming back for more. For director Brian Percival (Downton Abbey), the uncommon choice of narrator was one of the main elements that drew him to the project, as he recently tol...

Interview with Lee Daniels and Cuba Gooding, Jr in Philadelphia - "Lee Daniels The Butler"

user
I started to sit down and transcribe the interview with Lee Daniels, Cuba Gooding, Jr and Yaya Alafia Q&A style, but it was so lively, you need to hear it.  We'd ask a question which would take Lee & Cuba off on great tangents. Plus a transcription doesn't capture the camaraderie between the Precious director and the actors he respects and enjoys so much. So here's a video of the audio - http://www.tinseltine.com/2013/08/the-rittenhouse-hotel-interview-lee.html ...

Harry Dean Stanton : Partly Fiction, a documentary By Ron Gilbert One of the additional joys after viewing this film was having Harry Dean in person performing a few musical sets which could have gone on for hours because no one wanted him to stop. He always says, “It is what it is. Everything just is.” Just put that in your mind and it will help you into the insight to this fascinating documentary. Swiss director Sophie Huber, who met Harry 20 years ago, discussed with us how it...
