Trailering Xavier Dolan’s LAURENCE ANYWAYS (2’58”)

So that’s what Xavier Dolan‘s been up to… Not necessarily to be expected from the director of How I Killed My Mother and Les amours imaginaires, but… “C’est especial.”

“I didn’t see you coming this morning. Is this a revolt?”
“No sir, it’s a revolution.”

Cannes-bound, per David Hudson at Daily MUBI.

Girl Talk’s “Girl Walk//All Day” Part 1 (of 12) (8’05”)

In 12 chapters, a runaway Kickstarter success. The site, here. “A 71-minute dance music video of epic proportions, set to the tune of Girl Talk’s All Day. The idea behind Girl Walk // All Day emerged from our desire to expand the boundaries around the idea of the traditional music video, which usually spans the length of a single track. This album-length piece will feature a talented group of dancers across a range of public and private spaces around New York City, turning the city’s sidewalks and obstacles into part of an evolving improvisational dance routine.”

RIP Tonino Guerra (videos)

A trailer for a documentary in the making. Guerra looks so… calm. Centered. Down-to-earth. Nice.

I once had a random conversation with Guerra at a film festival about his poetry, which I had discovered only a couple weeks earlier. He seemed pleased to be able to talk about that writing more than about the many directors he’d written screenplays with, including Angelopoulos, smoking a cigarette and glaring at the other end of a couch. (The poetry is written in his native dialect and much of it is scabrous.)

Below, “Cooking Up Ideas” with Tarkovsky, from Voyage In Time.

DVD Distrib Lets Customers Know The Fake DRAGON TATTOO DVD Markings Are… Real

“We would like to address some confusion caused by the DVD version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Upon opening the case, librarians and patrons will find what looks to be a burned DVD-R with the movie’s title scrawled across it with a marker…” (Preview copies of Monte Hellman’s Road To Nowhere used the same effect last year, aping the opening shot of the movie.)

Quote Unquotesee all »

“At one point in the comedy dead zone known as Seth MacFarlane’s Ted 2, the title character—a stuffed toy bear voiced by Mr. MacFarlane—and his dimwitted best friend, John (Mark Wahlberg), visit a comedy club to engage in a favorite pastime: throwing bleak improv ideas at the comics onstage. So, seated in the back of the auditorium while cloaked in darkness, the friends start shouting out suggestions like 9/11, Robin Williams and Charlie Hebdo to the unnerved comics. The topics don’t mean anything to Ted and John, who, like Mr. MacFarlane, take great pleasure in making others squirm. They could have just as easily yelled gang rape, the Holocaust and dead puppies.”
Manohla Dargis on Ted 2

“You never expect a movie to hurt you. Disappoint? Dismay? Depress? Fine. But when a movie has a field day asserting the humanity of a fake toy bear at the expense of your own, it hurts. I was led to believe, in part by the posters, that I was getting a movie about a character who’d be masturbating or urinating with his back to us. They should’ve turned Ted around since the emissions are aimed at the audience… MacFarlane doesn’t appear to believe in anything. He just likes to mess around with things that still have value without seeming to get whether that value is greater than his jokes. It’s as if he doesn’t really know what he’s laughing at or care what race and sexuality and gender are. It’s as if he doesn’t know women or black people — just white comedy writers who love to make fun of them.”
~ Wesley Morris On Ted 2
