  • post David Lynch: ?You gotta be selfish. It's a terrible thing? - 23 June
  • The Twin Peaks director lives for his work. He talks about his four marriages, why explaining his films is a ?crime?, and what makes him a happy camperDavid Lynch seldom smiles in photographs. His etched Easter Island statue of a face doesn?t glower so much as brood; lips pursed and eyes hooded, he looks every inch the auteur in winter. The quiff completes the effect, its lush swirl seemingly frozen in place by alarming, Lynchian thoughts.In his 40 years of film-making, the director has taken audiences from sunlit American idylls to surreal dimensions populated by demons, doppelgangers and psychotic killers. His are scenes you can?t forget: the whimpering, deformed baby in Eraserhead, the severed ear in Blue Velvet, the blood-spattered, skull-crushing violence of Wild At Heart, the nuclear explosion in Twin Peaks: The Return. Google ?David Lynch creepy?, and you get 5.5m results. Continue reading...
  • post 'It's the thrusting of the pelvis': inside the kinetic dance style known as bucking - 22 June
  • When the Beat Drops, a new documentary, follows a close-knit circle of black gay men in Atlanta who lead double lives ? professionals by day, dancers by nightWhen the Beat Drops, a new documentary directed by Jamal Sims, chronicles a close-knit circle of black gay men in Atlanta who lead double lives. By day, they are mild-mannered hospital workers, teachers and corporate employees. By night, they rock a furiously energetic, hyper-athletic style of dancing known as ?bucking?.It?s a style of dancing that?s both hidden and mainstream ? simultaneously a part of everything from underground clubs to Beyoncé videos and dance routines, including her recent Coachella extravaganza. (Sims, a noted choreographer, has worked with Beyoncé, Madonna and many other stars.) ?It?s still very underground,? Sims says of bucking. ?Although Beyoncé did it, and artists are doing it, people don?t know what it is, exactly.? Continue reading...
  • post Who Framed Roger Rabbit? at 30: the game-changer Hollywood couldn't top - 22 June
  • In 1988, the ambitious multimedia caper brought darkness and a satirical edge to the summer and the industry has struggled to match its inventiveness ever sinceAt a time when the predominant male gaze in the world of film criticism is being questioned by Oscar-winning female actors and lowly denizens of Twitter alike, the erudite New Yorker critic Anthony Lane took more flak than he might have expected for an irreverent review of Pixar?s innocent animated romp The Incredibles 2.Or not so innocent, depending on who you believe: Lane poked fun at what he claimed was Pixar?s overt sexualisation of cartoon superhero mom Elastigirl, likening her to Anastasia Steele in the Fifty Shades franchise before joking that she?d prompt many an accompanying dad to ?[rest] his cooling soda firmly in his lap? at the cinema. Some found Lane?s exaggerated leering over a family comedy lewdly funny, others simply gross. What inspired less debate, however, was the question of whether Elastigirl ? sleek in spike-heeled thigh boots and a rubber bodysuit, and seemingly made curvier than in the 2004 original ? was hot. Animated form notwithstanding, she kind of is, and Lane is far from the first person to note that: brace yourself before typing the words ?Elastigirl porn? into Google, is what I?m saying.

  • post BBFC looks to toughen up rules of screen depictions of sexual violence - 22 June
  • The film classification body?s five-yearly public consultation has revealed increased concern about the depiction of rape, and a desire for stricter ratingsIn the future, films containing scenes of rape or sexual violence are likely to be given more restrictive certificates by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC), it has emerged.At a conference organised by the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, where BBFC director David Austin gave the keynote speech, results from the organisation?s five-yearly public consultation indicated increased concern about such scenes, meaning certification guidelines may become stricter.

  • post How did some of cinema's greatest films end up in an Iowa shed? - 22 June
  • A heartwarming new documentary tells the story of the history teacher who stumbled upon the Brinton Collection, a unique archive of films from the earliest days of moving picturesMichael Zahs thinks of himself as a saver. ?I like to save things,? he says, ?especially if it looks like they?re too far gone.? This retired history teacher from Iowa, now in his 70s, has amassed quite a collection over the years: stray animals, farm implements, even a church steeple. He can trace the lineage of the peach trees in his yard back to 1800. Nothing he has saved, however, has been quite as remarkable as the Brinton Collection ? a mammoth set of films, lantern slides, posters and projection equipment from the first years of cinema, and even earlier. There are two exciting things about these artefacts. One is that during the more than three decades after Zahs took delivery of the collection and stored it on his property, he has been showing its treasures to local people and keeping the tradition of the travelling showman alive. The second is the discovery that the collection contains very rare material ? films by the French cinema pioneer, George Méliès that were once thought to be lost.Saving Brinton, an absorbing new documentary by Andrew Sherburne and Tommy Haines, tells the story of Zahs and the collection he saved. Between 1895 and 1909,one Frank Brinton crossed the Midwest with his wife Indiana and his travelling show, welcoming locals for a ticket price of just a few cents. At first he showed magic lantern slides, some of which ?dissolved? between two static images to create an illusion of movement. When moving pictures arrived, Brinton jumped aboard, ordering many films from distributors in France, one of the most prolific and creative producers in the early period. He also became the manager of the Graham Opera House in Washington, Iowa, which is now known as the State Theater and has been certified by Guinness World Records as the oldest continuously operated cinema in the world. Brinton?s programme included trick films such as those by Méliès, which used in-camera special effects to create fantastical spectacles, and many hand-coloured movies where the dye is applied directly to each frame. Projected in the dark, these vivid, bizarre images have lost none of their original impact. Continue reading...
  • post From vibrators to gay kisses, how Bollywood embraced the taboo - 22 June
  • Once a musical wonderland out of touch with reality, India?s film industry is finally addressing contemporary issues ? and telling women?s storiesThis is the summer the vibrator arrives in Bollywood.

The past decade has seen Bollywood?s first gay kiss, a hit film about sanitary towels and the industry?s highest-ever grossing film ? about the lives of two female wrestlers. Continue reading...
  • post Diversity among film directors remains low in Hollywood, report finds - 21 June
