  • post Jane Campion: ?The clever people used to do film. Now they do TV? - 22 July
  • From Sweetie to The Piano, she has made some of cinema?s strangest, strongest films. So why has she switched to the small screen?Jane Campion, one of the world?s great film directors, has had it with the movies. It is eight years since she last made a full-length feature (the Keats biopic Bright Star), and 14 years since her sexually explicit thriller In The Cut almost did for her career. Now she is having a Norma Desmond moment: she?s still big, it?s just the pictures that got small.Movies, she says, have become conservative cash cows. ?The really clever people used to do film. Now, the really clever people do television. I?d been feeling, in the film world, that if you come up with ideas, and you share them, the first concern is: how is the audience going to react?? Television has reinvigorated her. ?Cinema in Australia and New Zealand has become much more mainstream. It?s broad entertainment, broad sympathy. It?s just not my kind of thing. As a goal, to make money out of entertaining doesn?t inspire me. But in television, there is no concern about politeness or pleasing the audience. It feels like creative freedom.? Continue reading...
  • post City of Ghosts director Matthew Heineman: 'Imagine seeing people crucified ? every day' - 21 July
  • Their families have been killed, they live in hiding, but a brave group of Syrians continue to defy Islamic State by reporting its atrocities to the world. The director of a new documentary explains how he told their shocking storiesThe most remarkable scene in Matthew Heineman?s new film City of Ghosts ? indeed, possibly the most remarkable scene in any documentary you?re likely to see this year ? takes place in an unfurnished German apartment. Hamoud al-Mousa, a founder member of the citizen journalist group Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently (RBSS) sits staring at a laptop, watching a video of his father?s murder at the hands of Islamic State militants. The killing has been filmed in the manner of a Michael Bay movie, bombastic and slickly edited. It is intended to strike fear into Hamoud ? and any others willing to expose the many atrocities committed by the terrorist group. Hamoud however refuses to be cowed. ?I watch the video a lot. It gives me strength,? he says.Hamoud?s fortitude in the face of such brutality will come as no surprise to anyone familiar with the work of RBSS. Formed initially to document the assault carried out by the Assad regime on their home city, the group turned their attention to Isis when the group took control of Raqqa in 2014 and declared it the capital of their new caliphate. Since then RBSS has, through social media postings and cameraphone footage, shone a light on a regime that is out of reach of western journalists. They have done so at enormous personal cost: several members of the group have been executed, as well as friends and family members. Hamoud?s father is just one of many victims. Continue reading...

  • post Dunkirk: power, patriotism and Harry Styles on screen ? discuss with spoilers - 21 July

And what did you think of Harry Styles? acting? Here?s a chance to give your verdict on the film?s key talking points. Continue reading...
