Interview With Writer/Director Dmitry Milkin For Award Winning Animated Short 'Curpigeon'

  Dmitry Milkin Writer/director Dmitry Milkin's award winning 3D animated short 'Curpigeon' (2016) is making audiences coo and awe as it tells the story about birds communicating with humans in a spiritual transcendent way. The ancient Egyptians did this, so why not in 2016 with a group of old bonding men in a community park?

  Matt Schrader What is a film without a soundtrack? This questions is answered in writer/director Matt Schrader's crucial and poignant feature documentary 'Score: A Film Music Documentary' (2016).

They are Larry (Kieran Coppinger), who has Down Syndrome, and Sophie (Charlene Kelly), an epileptic, and this is their first go at intimacy. Tom (Robert Doherty), their b...

DP John Schwartzman Shoots “The Founder”

  Textured, bittersweet and laced with irony, John Lee Hancock’s unvarnished chronicle of the Ray Kroc legend is hardly a hagiography. But its very ambivalence about the McDonald’s brand builder gives The Founder ethical shadings that lift it beyond facile biopic and into the realm of nuanced morality tale. Sly visual choices by cinematographer John Schwartzman further ensure that no tidy judgment is served up in this real-life tale.  Whether you find it appet...

DP Greig Fraser Captures “Lion”

  As a young boy coming up in rural India, Saroo Brierley often helped his big brother Guddu scavenge for food and money on trains. One evening in 1986 the brothers got separated. Five-year-old Saroo accidentally wound up a thousand miles from home, after boarding what turned out to be an empty, decommissioned train. “Dickensian” doesn’t begin to describe the conditions he toughed out in Kolkata, West Bengal, before being adopted by a well-heeled Australian couple. A qu...

Costume Designer Gitti Fuchs Outfits “Toni Erdmann”

  More than most films, the costumes in Toni Erdmann tell the story. Director Maren Ade’s new tragicomedy of manners makes its points as much through what its characters are and aren’t wearing as through anything they say. Set largely in Bucharest, it follows buttoned-up corporate consultant Ines Conradi (Sandra Hüller) and her prankish father Winfried (Peter Simonischek) as they struggle to reconnect as adults. The 65-year-old widower makes an impromptu visit...
