Zaki's Review: <i>Live by Night</i>
Huffington Post - about 2 months
One of the great Hollywood turnarounds of the last decade-and-change has been Ben Affleck's transformation from frequent punchline in the wake of such seismic duds as Gigli and Jersey Girl into one of the most gifted triple-threats the industry has to offer, with his considerable skills as writer/director/star readily visible in films such as The Town and 2012 Best Picture winner Argo. As such, it was with a certain amount of anticipation that I greeted Affleck's latest, the period crime drama Live by Night, and while it's his least satisfying directorial effort to date, it still bears enough hallmarks of a talented filmmaker not to be dismissed entirely. Based on the 2012 Dennis Lehane crime novel of the same name, Live by Night is definitely Affleck's most ambitious turn behind the camera in terms of the sheer scope it attempts to encompass, weaving an epic, decade-spanning crime tale in the Godfather mould. But though its ambitions are clear, it feels less like a fully-realized st ...

Robert Richardson sized up the scenes in 'Hateful Eight' and went for the big shot
LATimes - about 1 year
The success of "The Hateful Eight's" 70-millimeter roadshow may not have reversed the movie industry's digital conversion trend, but the sold-out multiplex screenings showed there's still an audience that will turn out to see a film on film. And as a reward, Robert Richardson's cinematography captured...

The Hateful Eight review – hard to hate but tough to love
Guardian (UK) - about 1 year
Tarantino’s latest is a wild west Reservoir Dogs, full of his usual exuberant violence but lacking the element of surprise “You’re starting to see pictures, ain’t ya?” Quentin Tarantino’s latest is a typically talkative quasi-western set in the still-unresolved aftermath of the US civil war. Photographed in super-wide Ultra Panavision 70, and released in standard “multiplex” format and extended 70mm “roadshow” versions, it’s everything you’d expect from this exasperatingly unruly writer-director: cinematically adventurous, generically self-conscious, entertainingly performed, editorially ill-disciplined. Chief among its pleasures is Robert Richardson’s superbly choreographed cinematography, which masterfully captures both the landscape poetry of the American interior west, and the chamber-piece stagings of the western interiors – a cabin, a barn, a stagecoach – in which much of the action plays out. There are rambunctiously hairy turns from the grizzled male ensemble, while Jennifer ...

Keanu Reeves On 'Side By Side,' His Directorial Debut &amp; 'Point Break'
Moviefone Blog - over 4 years
Keanu Reeves appears in one of the best movies of the summer -- but unlike "The Matrix" franchise, this one likely isn't coming to a theater near you. Called "Side by Side," the limited-released documentary -- which debuts in Los Angeles on Aug. 17 before a nationwide VOD release on Aug. 22 and further theatrical expansion to come -- explains via interviews with directors like James Cameron and Christopher Nolan the pros and cons of both photochemical and digital film techniques. Reeves produced the film and conducted the interviews, gaining unprecedented access to some of the most respected craftspeople in the history of filmmaking; beyond Cameron and Nolan, award-winning below-the-line specialists like Anne V. Coates (editor of "Lawrence of Arabia") and Michael Ballhaus (cinematographer of "Goodfellas") also make appearances. "Side by Side" came at a perfect time for Reeves, who just recently finished filming his directorial debut, "Man of Tai Chi." The erstwhile Neo has kept a low ...

When Did Oliver Stone Lose His Spark of Big Ambition?
The New Republic - over 4 years
Savages is trashy, vulgar, preposterous, cruel—and maybe the most interesting and entertaining film Oliver Stone has made since Nixon. What more do you want when the country is burning, gridlocked, and practicing ballet on the brink? Don’t say the movies lack instincts about where we’re headed. If you were in any doubt about this, Oliver lets the voiceover tell us that in our lower depths savagery has been legitimized, adding that movies have characters best rated as “beautiful savages.” That voice—naggy, croaking, and deaf to the pretension of lines like, “he was looking for wargasm not orgasm”—belongs to a young woman named O. Apparently that stands for Ophelia, but other choices are open, including zero. O is played by Blake Lively, a name that seems as far-fetched as her lines but is look-uppably authentic—and ironic in that O is seemingly sedated by sun, sex, the gloss of advertising, the séance of weed, and her reluctance to think. You see, O is the uncritical bed- and bath-mat ...

Scary Stories Told By People Who Say 'Men In Black' Are Real
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
When "Men in Black 3" opens everywhere over Memorial Day weekend, most moviegoers will just be hoping this sequel matches the original for popcorn-munching fun. But there are many people who say they've been victimized by and live in fear of real MIBs. And those stories, told for decades, are just as terrifying as they are detailed. Ever since the early 1950s, long before the first "Men in Black" movie hit the silver screen in 1997, men dressed in identical black suits, hats and sunglasses, claiming to be government agents, have reportedly shown up in black cars at the homes or offices of people who reported UFO sightings. According to those who were paid these unwelcome visits, the MIBs threatened or harassed the eyewitnesses into staying quiet about their UFO encounters. Watch some reported Men in Black encounters: 1947: Harold Dahl reported seeing a group of UFOs while he was on a boat in Washington's Puget Sound. Soon after, he said, he was approached ...

Django Unchained Producer Michael Shamberg Talks Quentin Tarantino's Love of Film
Movies Web - almost 5 years
Last week, I visited the set of CBS Films' upcoming comedy Get a Job, which is slated for release sometime next year. One of the people we got to chat with on the set was producer Michael Shamberg, who is also executive producing Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained. It is widely known that the director loves shooting on film, which is definitely becoming a rarity these days. The producer was asked if this revenge Western might be one of the last movies he makes on film. Here's what he had to say. "Quentin loves film. He's got Robert Richardson, who just won his third Oscar. Quentin, I think, has one of the last dailies trailers in the film business, where you literally go into a trailer and watch film selections from a projectionist. He loves film, he doesn't like digital. I love digital, but I think there will still be directors who want to do film. Master directors like Quentin will still want to do film. I've seen enough of the dailies, and the way Robert is lighting i ...
