It’s tragic in a way that Akerman’s art turned so many people away from her, but then…the best and most honest art will always confuse and upset those who aren’t ready for it. That was me really having questions about classic American cinema and race relations between women. Body-mounted cameras, high-angle tracking shots, amplified sound design, and a bone-chilling krautrock score swirl together to create a manic, propulsive energy that’s as disorienting to the viewer as the implacable urge to kill is for Erwin Leder’s unnamed psychopath.
I sat there and listened to every word while people all around me walked away. When her 2011 film "Almayer’s Folly" (a staggering movie) took a year to make it to a rather negligible art house run, I wondered if she’d done something to make taste-makers mad.
I think, at that point, my head was really about, again, extending the conversation in a way that showed the diversification of experience within the same issue. LIKE its blunt title, Chantal Akerman's ''Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles,'' deals in unadorned facts. This film has no rating. The film now exists in a twilight of an era in which factory-produced entertainment could still serve as a keyhole into a dimension of weird, through which we might glimpse the otherworldly, and contemplate fondling the third breast. I think what’s happened is just tremendous interest in Laura Dern. And depending on who we are and how we’re moving through space, that can become oppressively clear or something that one has the privilege to forget. We tried to create a situation so that it would be believed that when Connie stayed home alone, this could happen. There were hardly any women directors making feature films. Perhaps the best way to enjoy In the Mouth of Madness is to relinquish your sanity, losing yourself inside of its loopy, Lovecraftian logic. Our discussion covered how she and Cole built upon Oates’ slender source text, the joys of rediscovery and reappraisal, and why she doubts John Hughes could believe in the universes he created on screen. At the end of "Jeanne Dielman, 23 quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles," there is finally a burst of action that changes every minute of the movie that precedes it. It gives a window into Akerman’s lifelong inherited anxiety, and the ways in which her work was a tribute to the woman who so cared for her, who sent her money to help support her young daughter, making art she probably didn’t understand. By brazenly conflating religious and sexual hysteria, and depicting both with his characteristic lack of restraint, Russell pushes his already edgy material into places that are so intense and discomforting that the film was subsequently banned in several countries and is to this day still unavailable on home video in a complete and uncut version. But then, a week later, he did an articled—Pretty in Pink had just come out. After asking Dana Andrews’s comically hardheaded Dr. Holden how can one differentiate between the powers of darkness and the powers of the mind, Niall MacGinnis’s wily satanic cult leader conjures up a storm of epic proportions to prove to the pragmatic doctor that the power of the dark arts is no joke. At times she’s a woke warrior, and at times she’s a helpless little girl. But Alice Júnior visibly struggles to differentiate itself from a soap opera. And she did all this before her twenty-fifth birthday. Into the new millennium, horror films have retained their power to shock and outrage by continuing to plumb our deepest primordial terrors and incarnate our sickest, most socially unpalatable fantasies. But her piano bar-styled, true-to-brand saccharine vocals are undeniably sweet. She made a documentary on the celebrated dancer Pina Bausch in the 80s, and a few very charming mainstream comedies with "A Couch in New York" and "Tomorrow We Move," but you wouldn’t know that from a cursory glance at her reputation. Bria’sn (Rick Herbst) degradation suggests the crack epidemic of the 1980s, and the threat and alienation of AIDS lingers over the outré, sexualized set pieces, especially when Brian cruises a night club called Hell and picks up a woman, who’s murdered by Aylmer (voiced by John Zacherle) just as she’s about to go down on Brian. The Pumpkins have transcended any one moment or movement, instead reveling in the entire tessellation of 20th-century art. If nothing else, Golden further bolsters Minogue’s reputation for taking risks—and artfully sets the stage for her inevitable disco comeback. This means some of the plot doesn’t feel credible, as Alice masters LGBTQ resistance discourse perfectly in her interactions both on and offline, but prefers pissing her pants during a class exam, which naturally becomes a viral video, than demanding her right to use the women’s restroom. Akerman’s cinema was essentially humane, but filled with a potent and necessary rage. Indeed, with 11 studio albums and dozens of EPs, compilations, and soundtrack contributions, Billy Corgan and company have proved to be expert evocateurs, stitching together their melodic pastiche from a diverse litany of musical, literary, and visual sources. We created a whole world that we wanted to believe in. The fantasies of the film are more “real” than anything he’d written before, because they define who we think we are. Bowen, Tobe Hooper is officially credited for having directed Poltergeist, but it’s co-scripter Steven Spielberg’s fingerprints that are all over this dark-mirror image of E.T. Throughout the album, she talks to and interacts with a rather compassionate computer DJ named Kyoko, and her voice is robotic and synthetic on tracks like “Feedback” and the Daft Punk-sampling “So Much Betta”—not necessarily such a bad thing for an artist whose vocals often consist of unintelligible murmuring. The 1979 film most explicitly riffs on delinquent racing movies and the kinds of crudely effective 1970s horror movies that would sometimes show a family being violated in a prolonged fashion, and there are sequences in Mad Max that could be edited, probably with few seams, into, say, Wes Craven’s The Last House on the Left. Finally she looked to the last of the rude escapees, some 30 minutes into her talk, and said “Don’t make noise.”. If you’re angry or upset that nothing is happening, ask why you believe that something should? I think people who are probably 20 years older than you—anybody starting in their mid-50s—would know the film if they were aware of films. At the Film Forum, 57 Watts Street. Somehow, even that stopped, and I don’t know why some people couldn’t find it except by buying a DVD. From Shirley Bassey to Billie Eilish, we’ve ranked all 24 Bond themes from best to worst. If in Midnight Special is, at its heart, a work of science fiction, it rolls out like a chase film. See me now,” Gary Oldman’s undead vampire intones, so as to magically compel virginal Mina Murray (Winona Ryder) to turn his way on a crowded London street. I wish I had a profound answer. Occasionally the digitization process introduces transcription errors or other problems; we are continuing to work to improve these archived versions. The adults are forced to contemplate the unthinkable, doing battle with the little monsters and struggling with the notion that they may have to kill or be killed.
The film represents a welcome expansion to the genre’s then-overwhelmingly male gaze as it explores the experience of young Connie (Laura Dern in a breakout performance) as she tentatively probes the limits of her nascently blooming sexuality. And this character, Arnold Friend that Joyce Carol Oates created [sighs]…there are a lot of lunatics around. Context, history, and multiple dimensions are so intrinsic to that. Exactly. Who is she? As so frequently happens with artists who are ahead of the game, the world didn’t really know what to do with her. As viewers, we’re welcome to consider the persistent motif of walls collapsing, subterfuges dissolving, and rugs being pulled out from still more rugs. She was 18 years into the process of navigating the system, whereas Aloné was in the very beginning stages of that. With the help of his childhood friend, Lucas (Joel Edgerton), Alton’s father, Roy (Michael Shannon), has kidnapped the child from captivity at a compound run by a Branch Davidian-like cult that once counted Roy as a member. As fun as Alice Júnior can be, it’s at its core a typical Brazilian kids’ movie, in the vein of on-the-nose fare about enjoying life but not doing drugs that Brazilian megastar Xuxa put out in the 1980s and ‘90s, except queered by its trans protagonist and the visual language of the times. Henderson, The title of Discipline was encouraging for those who prefer Janet taking control and cracking the whip (both as leader of her rhythm nation and the boss of her bedroom) over the vapid, single-girl come-ons of her previous three albums. I think Time is an extension of that same love I have for working with people.
The film is a series of mostly static takes that force you to confront not just the content of the image, but the context, the very idea of a moving image itself. They thought the scene wasn’t real. You don’t watch Laugier’s harrowing feel-bad masterpiece—rather, you’re held in its thrall. Its finale is the most fully annihilative visualization of the Rapture ever put to screen, a mass death rendered as cathartic release from the hell of existence that, in a parting act of cruelty, leaves the broken, suicidal protagonist alive to bear witness to oblivion.
It went through different distributors. 1/LP: No Past. That’s a great question. In the introduction, he listed Joyce at 34, which he’s included in that list. After churning out four albums in as many years with Stock Aitken Waterman, Minogue parted ways with the production team’s label in 1993 and signed with Deconstruction Records. We are 360-degree beings.
After all, there are some things in this world even Freud can’t explain. Udo Kier’s Count Dracula, unable to find virgin blood amid the sexually active women of a 19th-century Italian family, finds himself quite literally poisoned by change.
I wanted to make a movie, and my focus was entirely on how to do this, how to raise the money. Janet was clearly still finding her voice, but the snappy backing track of “Say You Do” could easily have slotted into the Jacksons’s 1980 album Triumph, and “Young Love” has the confident pristineness of a Patrice Rushen jam.
Some rely on complicated special effects, others use none at all. Mad Max also has a distinctly Australian masculine tension that’s reminiscent of other outback-set classics such as Wake in Fright, as it’s concerned with the pronounced sexual repression and frustration of a predominantly male population that’s all dressed up in tight leather with little to do apart from mounting their bikes and revving up their big noisy engines.
