Uneasy Riders: Films of the 1970s

 Friday, July 27-------It did not seem like it at the time, but the films of a new generation of filmmakers in the 1970s truly did revolutionize the industry and save the studios from financial disaster. By the following decade, Hollywood was back to its old tricks of mounting blockbusters and lowest-common-denominator genre films. But for a period of about ten years (from 1967 to 1977, roughly defined by the release of Mike Nichol's THE GRADUATE and the unprecedented boxoffice extravaganza...

I finally watched it again last night. It takes a second viewing and a daily t...

Feel Your French: Bastille Day At The Burns

Friday, July 13-----To celebrate Bastille Day (and the general love of all things French), the Jacob Burns Film Center, the prominent arthouse complex north of New York City, is hosting The French New Wave film series, reminding us all what it was about the French that we fell in love with in the first place. In the late 1950s and early 1960s, the French "Nouvelle Vague" (New Wave) was the most dynamic cinema on the planet. It literally exploded when a group of young Cahiers du Cinema ...

Thursday, June 21---------The American Film Institute has revealed the Top 100 Films of the Past 100 Years during a special telecast on the CBS Network last evening. Drawing on a group of cinemaphiles and film experts, the AFI has compiled its list with one major criteria.....what American films have stood the test of time and remain enduring icons of cinema excellence?

The Indie Oscars Get Ready To Take A Bow

     Friday, February 23----For the last couple of years, it is becoming increasingly harder to tell the indies from the majors. When a truly indie film like LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE may just win the Best Picture Oscar race on Sunday evening, the distinctions leave those in and out of the industry just a little bit confused. So, let's just do away with labels and appreciate the films that made the strongest impressions, and leave our dictionaries at the door. The 2007 Film I...

Remembering an artist and a gambler

user
It is going to take a long time to get over the loss of such a monumental and influential film talent as Robert Altman. The maverick director, who was one of the few to move in and out of both the Hollywood studio system and the independent film world, and yet remain true to his own vision and artistic process, is already sorely missed. To reacquaint a new generation with the astonishing diverse films of his career, The IFC Center, one of New York's most ambitious cathedrals of cinema, will devo...
