  • Composers help tell the story and set the scene

    Composers help tell the story and set the scene
    When a movie has little dialogue and even fewer sound effects, what keeps the audience tethered emotionally to the story? And how can a film seamlessly blend the idea of death and a child's wide-eyed wonderment? Through its music, of course. Here are four...
  • Scott Cooper: 'Out of the Furnace' Inspired by 'Jaws,' 'The Godfather: Part 2′

    Scott Cooper is an actor's director. That term may be thrown around a lot, but the actor-turned-writer-director-producer truly fits the bill. After an "unremarkable career as an actor" ("I wasn't going to have Matt's career, Ben's or Jude's or all...
  • Alternative movie posters fill creative void left by film studios

    Alternative movie posters fill creative void left by film studios
    Matt Chojnacki couldn't remember the last time he liked a movie poster. He couldn't recall the last time he went to a movie theater, looked at the posters and, compelled by the cleverness of the images, decided which movie to see. He used to do this all...
  • Letters: Movie mayhem and violence in society

    Re "A rapid-fire surge in PG-13 violence," Nov. 12 Many film and television producers are wrong to think that the content of a film or a TV program has no effect on the viewers. Violence does not satirize the media culture; it succumbs to it, idolizes...
  • Deaf film director can finally hear soundtracks to his films

    Deaf film director can finally hear soundtracks to his films
    The first thing you notice about the short film is that you never hear dialogue, only the dreamy, Daniel Lanois-type score. Instead, it's subtitled — even though the actors appear to be speaking in English. In the opening scenes, a young woman...
  • John Landis' 'American Werewolf in London' gave horror comedy chops

    John Landis' 'American Werewolf in London' gave horror comedy chops
    By 1980, John Landis had a string of successes under his belt — including "The Kentucky Fried Movie," "Animal House" and "The Blues Brothers" — but the writer-director had long been unable to get his script for "An American Werewolf in London"...
  • End the killer whale circus

    End the killer whale circus
    SeaWorld would no doubt prefer that the public forget about Dawn Brancheau, the trainer who died in an attack by a killer whale at its Orlando theme park more than three years ago. But that's unlikely to happen in the near future — not after the...
  • Big, bloody footprints to fill for 'Carrie' ★★ 1/2

    Big, bloody footprints to fill for 'Carrie' ★&#9733 1/2
    With her wide-eyed glare of grave intensity, the actress Chloe Grace Moretz appears destined for her share of artfully crafted, slightly unnecessary horror remakes. She starred in "Let Me In," the American version of the terrific Swedish vampire picture...
  • How 'Captain Phillips' Shows Modern Piracy in All Its Complexity

    With all due respect to Johnny Depp and Errol Flynn, piracy is a lot more complicated than Hollywood makes it look. How refreshing, therefore, that Paul Greengrass and company go out of their way to provide valuable context while also avoiding reductive...
  • Reading the falling (tea) leaves

    Reading the falling (tea) leaves
    Like you, I have yet not seen any of the fall movies. Nevertheless, perhaps also like you, I still have strong opinions about every single one of them. For instance: This 1970s-period Ron Howard race-car thing, "Rush" (Sept. 27)? If it's so Oscar-ready,...
  • Samuel Fuller's 'Shock Corridor' arrived in mad times

    Samuel Fuller's 'Shock Corridor' arrived in mad times
    Not a guy to mince words, two-fisted writer-director Samuel Fuller began (and ended) his tabloid classic "Shock Corridor" with a spurious quote from Euripides: "Whom God wishes to destroy he first makes mad." But he might just have well taken his epigraph...
