Netflix jako paralelní filmový vesmír: „It’s hard to be groundbreaking when your whole purpose is to take people where they’ve already been.“

Netflix v kontextu proměn filmové distribuce: „Thus, as consumers, we’re less concerned with cinema than we are with #content — and less interested in whether it’s any good than if and when it’s there.“

Producenti filmů ze Sundance se baví o tom, co obnáší produkování indie filmů: „If there is to be one unifying aspect we look for a singularly non-generic and highly creative voice while targeting a broader mainstream audience.“

Village Voice zveřejnil žebříček nejlepších filmů loňského roku, sestavený z hlasování více než stovky kritiků. Zaslouženým vítězem se stala Nit z přízraků. Kromě jednotlivých textů, které jej doprovázejí (viz odkazy pod článkem), stojí za přečtení i komentáře k některým filmům:

  • Call Me By Your Name: „But thank goodness Michael Stuhlbarg spells out the entire point to us at the end, and Timothée Chalamet stares at the camera for four minutes.“
  • A Ghost Story: “You have no idea how many times I fell asleep during whatever the hell that was.”
  • Tvář vody: „But I’ve seen The Shape of Water twice, and I still don’t really know why Sally Hawkins falls in love with the fish-guy, besides that, yes, he’s pretty sexy as fish-guys go.“

Začíná kauza #metoo připomínat hon na čarodějnice z 50. let? V reakci na článek A. O. Scotta o tom v souvislosti s Woodym Allenem píše Steve Vineberg: „The actors in Allen’s unreleased new movie who have made a big show of donating their salaries to various organizations that support abused women are making sure that, in this cultural climate, they look like they’re on the right side, just as in the 1950s actors who were worried about their careers made sure to distance themselves from anyone who was under investigation by the House Un-American Activities Committee.“

Recenze

„Still, there’s probably no level of craft that would save a film in which a teenager’s first words after watching Jack Reacher slowly, methodically beat someone else to death are, “Dude, you jumped off a building!”

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, právě v českých kinech.

„With The Lost City of Z, Gray announces himself as one of world cinema’s most gifted classicists, a distinction evident from the film’s very first moments, in which he subtly disrupts our expectations during scenes that will resonate with anyone who is even remotely familiar with Masterpiece Theatre.“

Napjatě očekávaný nový film Jamese Graye The Lost City of Z.

„Finally, for the first time since “The Avengers,” the action scenes are special. Derrickson doesn’t create any sequences that are fluid and symphonic as that film’s Manhattan fight, but he compensates for that lack of grace with a surplus of wonder, contradicting time with space in order to create unique battles that outshine their familiar stakes (and actually take advantage of 3D!).“

„Whether we are consciously aware of it, we spend our married lives under the shadow of divorce. We might all be a little better at working out how to live as married people if we knew the rules.“

„Having grown up in a post-Tlatelolco-massacre Mexico himself, in a Guadalajaran culture steeped in native arts and crafts, poverty, civil discontent, violent oppression, and American pop, del Toro knows from the yin and yang of violence and innocence.“

Esej o Faunovu labyrintu.

„Louieho apolitický náhled na svět, zjevný i z jeho stand-upů, vždy směřuje k pointě, která praví, že všichni jsou hrozní. A když jsou všichni hrozní, nikdo nemůže být nejhorší. Lidé na baru U Horáce a Petea jsou prokletí, ať udělají cokoliv. Stejnou měrou zaslouží soucit i pohrdání.“

Autorský projekt Louise C. K. Horace and Pete.

„Gore isn’t the appeal of the genre – survival is. Being so close to death can be a life-affirming experience.“

Osobně pojatý esej o tom, proč se vlastně díváme na horory.

„Within the span of three films, Cap has gone from wanting just the chance to lay down his life if necessary for his country, to fighting like hell for the freedom to make a different call if necessary. Cap is still down for the sacrifice play if need be, he just isn’t down anymore for The Man to make that call for him. Hydra’s most enduring legacy in the MCU may have been to successfully shatter Cap’s blind allegiance to authority.“

„Distinct from his 90s villains, Travolta has found a way to thread his modern-day baddies with pathos, something he’s learned from his George Malleys and Michaels. His late-period work is riddled with misses, yet he manages to still draw interest.“

Kariéra Johna Travolty od 90. let po současnost. 

„These days, the overall number of classic films that are available on either physical media or to stream is smaller than it used to be. And as streaming services shift their business models, that’s even more true.“

„The freshest takes these days find new ways to subvert, escape or toy with the familiar cliches. Westworld is so aware that it is about an artificial landscape its customers know so well that guests choose between white or black hats before venturing into the playground of the wild west.“

„It’s no easy trick to sustain an impression of casual normality while guarding one’s privacy so closely. I suspect the easy classlessness of being Irish helps, and he agrees at once.“

„Procedurals don’t have to be lazy or hacky, as shows such as The Rockford Files, Hill Street Blues, Moonlighting, NYPD Blue, ER, and The Good Wife demonstrate, but the energy is elsewhere. Creative people with ambitions besides making a fortune from CBS are not making procedurals; platforms besides the networks aren’t really buying them.“

Proč seriálové procedurály vyšly z módy?

„Is Westworld the blinkered macho fantasy, or is that “Westworld”? It’s a meta-cliffhanger with its own allure, leaving us only one way to find out: stay tuned for next week’s episode.“

Je, nebo není Westworld sexistický seriál?
