The Film Industry Sky Continues Not To Fall

When executives are in a job for 12 or 15 or 15-16 years or 18 years as Brad Grey, Jim Gianopulos, Amy Pascal, and Ron Meyer have been in the major exit formation of the last two years, the idea that “these days, a studio chief is lucky to get to bat” is just a punchline for a joke about self-delusion.

Samuel L. Jackson Opens Up To Jen Yamato

“As illuminating as 13th is, and as ‘walk down memory lane’ as [OJ: Made In America] is, this is way more relevant to what we’re facing on a day-to-day basis in terms of people trying to change our lives and put us back into place.” Samuel L. Jackson Opens Up Oscar To Jen Yamato

Oscar-Winner John Irving Says Acceptance Speeches Should Be Political

“In five of my 14 novels, I’ve written about sexual intolerance — about hatred of sexual minorities and sexual differences. Whatever the protocol for Oscar acceptance speeches is, or was, the creative community has an obligation: to be intolerant of intolerance. I hope there’s no protocol governing Oscar speeches this year.” Oscar-Winner John Irving Says…

“These things are troubling, and we could almost write them off—almost—as jokes falling on the deaf ears of liberals. Humor and trolling are, after all, two of Milo’s hallmarks, and lack of humor is one of his main critiques of PC liberals like me. We can’t take a good joke about rape, or about black women looking like apes.”

“It was never a play. It was always scripted in a way that was about the visual life of it. So for example, there are no ‘Lights up on’ or ‘Curtain opens on’ or ‘Enter stage left’ sort of instructions. All of the instructions in the original script ‘In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue’ are like ‘CUT TO: Black washing his face,’ and ‘CUT TO: Little standing in the middle of a field.’ So to try to put that on stage would be — crazy, I think.”

“Video Essays In The Age Of Social Media”

“The enforcement of stricter copyright terms on video essayists has [had an effect] on output, not in terms of number of videos produced but in terms of quality.

Karyn Kusama Entertains The Question

“So obviously I want to talk about women in cinema, but I don’t want to reduce what you’ve done down to just viewing it through that lens. That said, I’ve been thinking a lot about representation, and even though the horror genre has a very embattled relationship with women, people of color, and the queer…

“A lot of us felt blindsided,” Van Vliet told me. In the seventies, Van Vliet was drafted out of film school by Industrial Light & Magic, where he worked on The Empire Strikes Back and Raiders of the Lost Ark. Now 62 and semi-retired, he said, “Once you get into your fifties, you’re pretty disposable.” Van Vliet was in the middle of reviewing DVD screeners before casting his Oscar votes, a process he estimated would take a hundred and twenty hours. “The Academy is essentially asking us to give them three weeks of labor, and then they’re going to take our results, put them into a ceremony, and sell it,” he said, referring to the seventy-five million dollars that the organization earns from the television broadcast. “Then they’re turning around and kicking us in the teeth.”
~ “Shakeup At The Oscars”

“Richard Schickel was a very perceptive critic and a wonderful writer and documentary filmmaker. As a person he was, to use a once popular term, ‘crusty,’ and he could be brutally funny. But it’s his deep and abiding love of movies that I’ll always remember about him. His early 70s PBS series ‘The Men Who Made the Movies,’ his 2004 restoration of Sam Fuller’s The Big Red One, his wonderful little book about ‘Double Indemnity,’ his biographies of Chaplin and Cary Grant… this is a man who gave his life to the thing he loved.”
~ Martin Scorsese
