Friends, we came to number 67 of the magazine. Soon he will get to subscribers, and the rest will be able to buy it in the online store of the publishing house “Seans”, or in the shops of our partners. Follow the news in our groups on Facebook and VKontakte.

Everywhere they begin to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the May 1968 protests. On Colta, you can read how different critics and curators choose their favorite film of that year and, of course, explain their choice. Stanislav F. Rostotsky about his:

“Moreover, it is the” Planet of the Apes “that the planet of people owes, in effect, to the emergence of the industry of cinematic merchandise. Long before the “Star Trek” and “Star Wars” (and even more so to the “Avengers” and “Justice League”), the counters were overwhelmed with a wide variety of thematic consumer goods. T-shirts and mugs, boxes for school breakfasts and these school breakfasts, pajamas and fancy dresses, figures of characters of all sizes and levels of detail, bathrobes and costumes for Halloween – almost all manifestations of the material world of the 68th was imposed a hairy monkey’s paw “.

Stanislav Zelvensky chose April films that were not included in the rental: new Spike Lee, Yong San Ho and Barry Levinson, about the film which we wrote a little earlier.

Online New York Times nostalgic veterans: at the request of the publication, they recall the work on the “Zoo” (Animal House, 1978), a cult comedy that was the first script Harold Ramis, the first kinoleyu John Belushi and Kevin Bacon, and the second box office success John Landis. Ramis and Belushi are no longer with us, but in conversation, in addition to Landis and Beykon, participate Donald Sutherland, Karen Allen and Ivan Reitman.

“We arranged the first pre-condition for students in Denver. I called Landis, and he said: “Give me a shot, I’ll put something to you.” He recorded the reaction of the audience, and half of the lines were simply not heard because of his whistling, shouting, laughing and applause. I said: “My God, what is this?” And John replied: “This is the sound of a cash register.”

In chronological and spectator intimacy – the film “Little Girls” with Tatum O’Neill, which is remembered by the Brat Pack community.

“In truth, the film rolls back and forth, like a car with a drunken driver on the road, from a bad childhood comedy from the life of a summer camp to a piercing drama – and the drama is fully answered Kristi McNichol. What she does in the role of Angel, perhaps one of the best maiden acting roles in the entire 80’s, except for jokes. Girls in the secondary roles are also all wonderful, and against their backdrop Tatum O’Neil loses noticeably – much to what has happened since she received an Oscar in ten years. “

David Bordwell in his blog writes about “Ivan the Terrible” – the publication is devoted to Yuri Tsivyanu, and is called “Sergey Eisenstein arranges a scene. “

Sketch of Eisenstein to the third part of “Ivan the Terrible”

Here is an interview with the cameraman of the film “Quiet Place” Charlotte Bruous Christensen.

“I always wanted to shoot at 35 millimeters. We, of course, talked to the special effects department, but they said from the very beginning: “We do not care. You can film it. Can to the number. We will manage “. It does not seem that they had any preference. Maybe they just did not admit to me. (Laughs.) But all the references that John [Krasinski, the director of the film and the performer of the main role – note. Ed.] gave me, they were associated with film films: “Jaws”, “Old Men Are Not Here”, “Oil”, “Let Me In”. And my brain interacts well with the analog method of work – I have no problem using the exposure meter, and then sit behind the camera and see how the light lies before me. “

And the Film Sense community publishes a translation of the interview with the operator Lukoy Bigazzi, which is primarily known for working with Paolo Sorrentino.

“As I said, I do not consider myself a true artist. If there is something artistic in my work, then this is an extraordinary art form that is compromised by time. In the sense that my task is to be fast. The more time I lose in the installation of light or shadow, because of my uncertainty or the desire to make too sophisticated lights, the more time I take from the movie with its concrete reality. The director who builds the scene, the actors who must play better in this scene. My duty, recognizing the fact that I am an artist, is that I have to be a fast artist. Everything else does not matter. “

There is such a profession – scenarios to rule. In Hollywood, script doctors are involved in working on major genre projects, and these are often unexpected examples of cooperation. The site of IndieWire gathered exactly these: Carrie Fisher, Tarantino, brethren Coens and Charlie Kaufman help correct stupid scenarios.

“Fischer was one of the most famous” scenario doctors “in Hollywood, and worked on the scenarios of” Captain Hook “,” Singer at the wedding, “” Deadly Weapon 3, “and others. Her edits were so well known that in the film industry she was called “the most desired scenario doctor in the city”.

Carrie Fisher and the script.

In the middle of the festival season, we refer to the latest instructions from Filmmaker Magazine, which tells how to submit your films to festivals. It’s about the devil’s technical details: the media file system, the aspect ratio, the extension of the sound file, Linux vs. MacOS, the best cloud storage and so on.

Time essays for the week.

First of all, we will refer to ourselves: at our request to the premiere of “Islands of Dogs” Grigory Ignatiev and Dmitry Novoseltsev prepared a large (but one, and not the last, breath) essay on Wes Anderson.

Mubi talks about Douglas Sorke. And you can read the text Alexey Vasilyev about the director.

«Almodóvar and the plan will not be removed without looking back at the technique of the grater. Todd Haynes stepped from the Anfan-terribles to the adult league of prizewinners and nominees, taking off “Far from Paradise” – a remake of Sorkovsky’s “Everything that is permitted by heaven” with guts released – the underlying meanings, mostly reducible to the homosexuality of the main characters (they were usually played by Rock Hudson, the future first Hollywood victim of AIDS). Fasbinder broke away from the creches of the “young German cinema” to world fame, when in the “Marriage of Brown” sharply ceased to struggle with the desire to reshoot in a chaotic order shots from the melodrama of Scorch with the same camera angles, lighting and movement of the camera – it looked as if the latent gay, who went to the office in a suit and strange only with an insistent desire to convey to the staff the idea of ​​the revolutionary arrangement on the record “The Mirror of the Soul”, one day he went to work in a red mantle and shouted all over Ivanovo “Love, chew on a dream. ” However, it was after that that his paintings were rented to the US and the USSR. “

A short but important historical essay on where the “Wilhelm scream” came from. This is a familiar scream from the series about Indiana Jones, “Star Wars” and many other Hollywood paintings. There are inaccuracies (the film, thanks to which the cry got its name – in honor of the character, called The Charge at Feather River, and not … Feather Ridge), but in general it is a comprehensible educational program.

The channel “Kino TV” has released the third part of the project “New People”. This time, the interlocutor became an artist Alexander Gorchilin.
