Dark Knight Rises

The Film Foundation, Martin Scorsese’s non-profit film preservation organization, established 25 years ago, has added director Christopher Nolan to its board of directors. “Chris’s passion, knowledge and dedication to film is unparalleled,” said Martin Scorsese, founder and chair of The Film Foundation. “He spearheaded the growing movement to ensure that film stock continues to be available for production and preservation. I know that his commitment to film and its preservation will be enormously helpful to the work of the foundation.”

Christopher Nolan joins fellow TFF board members Woody Allen, Paul Thomas Anderson, Wes Anderson, Francis Ford Coppola, Clint Eastwood, Curtis Hanson, Peter Jackson, Ang Lee, George Lucas, Alexander Payne, Robert Redford and Steven Spielberg. The Film Foundation is aligned with the Directors Guild of America (DGA), whose Director and Secretary-Treasurer also serve on the board.

“Christopher’s knowledge and advocacy for film preservation on behalf of filmmakers round out an impassioned board that has achieved such significant milestones throughout the years, and will assure that this critical work is carried into the future,” said DGA President Paris Barclay.

Congrats Chris!

Screening: Sat., April 25, 6:30pm – Regal Cinemas Battery Park

 

Author and drug enthusiast Stephen Elliott (James Franco), fully obsessed with personal insecurities and childhood traumas, reaches a low point when his estranged father Neil (Ed Harris) resurfaces, claiming that Stephen has fabricated much of the dark childhood that fuels his writing. Conflicted in the haze of his shaky memory, Stephen leads a personal journey to find the truth through a new romance, the best friend (Jim Parrack, HBO’s True Blood) who shares his tumultuous history, and a murder trial with a defendant who reminds him of his own story.

See Rare Photos of The Police, LL Cool J, & More in Lynn Goldsmith’s “Streets of NYC”

From Bruce Springsteen in a shop full of hubcaps to Debbie Harry in her skimpiest skivvies, photographer Lynn Goldsmith has seen it all—and captured the photo to prove it. In a new show at the Morrison Hotel Gallery Soho, her iconic snapshots come center-stage: U2 holding umbrellas as they strut NYC’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, Harrison Ford hanging out with Carrie Fisher, even Laurie Anderson looking like she’s tightrope walking on the edge of a skyscraper.

Streets of NYC is her new exhibition, opening on Friday, April 17th. Featuring some of the famous faces Goldsmith captured between 1973 and 2013, the show is like a who’s who of downtown talent through the ages. Most of the portraits were taken “after formal studio portrait sessions, when Lynn and her subjects would walk around NYC,” as the press release explains, presenting intimate, often vulnerable looks at some of the world’s biggest stars. You can head over to the Morrison Hotel Gallery Soho to see them up-close and personal, but in advance of the show, check out some of the images in Streets of NYC below.

Lynn Goldsmith’s Streets of NYC opens on Friday, April 17th, and runs though Wednesday May 6th at Morrison Hotel Gallery Soho, located at 116 Prince Street. Click here for more information.

6 Things We Learned from ‘Star Wars VII’ Production Designer Rick Carter

luke_skywalker

During the production of Back to the Future Part II nearly 30 years ago, Rick Carter passed his Art Department what he today calls a “Pavlovian joint”—he asked them to imagine 2015; to enter the state of mind that allows for the suspension of disbelief. In a conversation last night at the Art Directors Guild (ADG) in Los Angeles, Carter asked his audience  to do the same, except this time, it really is 2015.

The Oscar-winning production designer behind Back to the Future Part II and III, Forrest Gump, Avatar, Jurassic Park, and so many more, recently finished work on the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. As last year’s recipient of the ADG’s Lifetime Achievement Award, Carter invited ADG members and press to “turn on, tune in, and trip out” in his conversation, which touched on topics including patterns, symbols, and dreams in cinema. From his subconscious mind to galaxies far, far away, Carter weaved a web of conversation between the art directors and production designers present. He did not stay on any one topic for long, but a few recurring themes emerged throughout the evening. These, he attributed to “The Force.”

Screenings:

Tues., April 21, 9:15pm – Regal Cinemas Battery Park

Fri., April 24, 8:45pm – Regal Cinemas Battery Park

Series: Spotlight

 

If you are of a certain generation, the subversive humor magazine National Lampoon holds a certain place in your nostalgic heart. Now whether that place is at the top or bottom of your heart is another matter, but love it or hate it, its power is undeniable. Featuring extremely rare and never-before-seen footage, Drunk Stoned Brilliant Dead: The Story of the National Lampoon is the outrageous story of the famed magazine and its underground, dissident, and racy 1960s beginnings, to its rebirth as an unlikely Hollywood heavyweight and beyond. The humor empire the radicals behind the Lampoon built—with its parody of politics, religion, and everyday American life—was like no other, and their creators, writers, and artistic staff left their mark all over popular culture.
