Robert Altman’s ‘Nashville’ Celebrates Its 40th Anniversary

Nashville

Nashville, the 1975 ensemble film by famed director Robert Altman which crystallized the canon of adventurous films that symbolized the “New Hollywood” of the 1970s, celebrates its 40th anniversary today.

Released in theaters on June 11, 1975, Nashville, which is a sprawling patchwork of 24 characters who intermingle in various ways over a weekend in the famed Tennessee city, remains one of the most risk-taking and eclectic motion pictures ever committed to celluloid. Full of rich characterizations; dialogue that appears to have been completely improvised; direction and staging that in many sequences make the picture almost seem in a documentary and cinema verite vein; sound that manifests from placements of microphones that seem to emanate from all four corners of the frames and of course; a musical soundtrack in which the actors in the film actually sing and even in some cases wrote the songs themselves (especially the Academy Award-winning “I’m Easy” by Keith Carradine), Nashville remains like an indie film raised to the highest apex, a film that in essence could and would never be released in today’s day and age, a true zeitgeist of its (and our) time.

Hitman Agent 47 Image

For some reason earlier in production, developer IO Interactive had decided that they were not going to use actor David Bateson to voice the role of Agent 47 in the upcoming fifth game in the franchise, Hitman: Absolution. Bateson had voiced the main character since the series’ first game back in 2000.

Now comes word that, after a lengthy search for a new voice actor, that developer IO Interactive has ultimately decided to go back to Bateson for the job. In addition to Bateson, William Mapother (LOST) has handled the motion capture performance of 47.

Back in early March rumors began to swirl that Quentin Tarantino‘s next movie would be a spaghetti western — glorious news for any fan of the director’s work familiar with his many influences. The word was that his Inglourious Basterds star Christoph Waltz would be starring, and that the cast might also feature the likes of star Franco Nero, Keith Carradine, and Treat Williams.

Now a picture has been sent out via Twitter of what looks like the first page of Tarantino’s script, apparently confirming that the title of the new movie will be Django Unchained. This was later confirmed by IndieWire who contacted Tarantino’s agency about the image.

Please Let It Be So: Quentin Tarantino’s Next Film To Be A Spaghetti Western

It’s no secret that director Quentin Tarantino has been heavily influenced by both kung-fu movies and spaghetti westerns of the ’60s and ’70s. We saw him dive into the kung-fu with Kill Bill and he already delivered on the movie fans have been begging him for for years, Inglourious Basterds, so the absolute perfect next project for him would be a western, naturally.

Django and Die Hard 2 star Franco Nero was talking recently and happened to mention that he was doing a new spaghetti western with Tarantino that also involved Keith Carradine and Treat Williams. It was unclear at first whether this was true or not, or what was actually entailed in the possible project. This led AICN to do a little digging, and while all details are still a little uncertain they were able to come up with some very exciting information.

First of all, they confirmed that Tarantino is putting together his next movie and it will indeed be a spaghetti western, which could be one of the greatest pieces of news ever for fans of the director and the western genre. Adding to that, their source says that Quentin already has one star locked up: his Basterds villain and Oscar winner Christoph Waltz.

Cowboys & Aliens

The casting for Jon Favreau‘s comic book adaptation of Cowboys & Aliens has been nothing short of phenomenal so far, and they just keep adding to it.

According to Deadline, three new actors in Paul Dano, Clancy Brown, and Keith Carradine have been cast in the film. Dano is best known for his work in movies like Little Miss Sunshine and There Will Be Blood, and will be one of the many cowboys that will be battle alien invaders. Clancy Brown, known for his work as a prison guard in The Shawshank Redemption or a drill instructor in Starship Troopers, will be a cowboy as well. Carradine has appeared on the hit Showtime series Dexter and is no stranger to the western genre having appeared in plenty of movies of the genre and HBO’s Deadwood. He’ll be playing the town sheriff.

Chase your own aliens over to the other side to read a brand new official synopsis, which is much longer and much more detailed than what we’ve known about the film so far!

DVD Review: ‘Dexter’ Season 2

DexterDexter
Season 2
Starring Michael C. Hall, Julie Benz, Jennifer Carpenter
Paramount Home Entertainment
Release Date: August 19, 2008

Dexter is a show that works beyond all the expected ways it could be anticipated to work. The first season involved Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall, a serial killer who works forensics on the Miami Police Department. His targets are criminals and people who use the normal parameters of the law to their own ends instead of justice. In an unfair world, Dexter acts as an equalizer.

But, more than that, it’s about a man, admittedly dead to the world, fumbling and futzing his way towards humanity and a soul. For someone like Dexter, who freely admits that he has no emotions, he sure does develop a lot of attachments. To his girlfriend Rita (Julie Benz) and her two kids; To his sister Deb (Jennifer Carpenter), who’s also a cop and has no luck with romance. Through his interactions with others he finds out, much to both his joy and dismay, that he was human all along. Kind of like The Wizard of Oz in Dante’s ring of murderers.

And this was all in the first season. Here we are with the second season, now on DVD, and I think it’s better than the first. Instead of trying to capture lightning in a bottle yet again, it’s a continuation of the central themes and a continuing evolution of Dexter as a character.

Yeah, so he has a soul. NOW what?
