Second Opinion – What We Left Behind: Looking Back at Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (2018)

What We Left Behind: Looking Back at Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, 2018.

Directed by Ira Steven Behr and David Zappone.

Featuring Nana Visitor, Rene Auberjonois, Alexander Siddig, Terry Farrell, Michael Dorn, Colm Meaney, Cirroc Lofton, and Armin Shimerman.

It’s not uncommon for Trekkie fans to argue over which Star Trek series is the best. Most of the conversations I’ve been privy to generally compare the original Star Trek with William Shatner and Next Generation with Patrick Stewart as their favorites. Now, with What We Left Behind: Looking Back at Star Trek: Deep Space Nine documentary shedding light behind the scenes with the actors and writers, it’s fair to say Deep Space Nine deserves its own recognition for being as innovative, original, trendsetting and revolutionary as any other Star Trek series. However, DS9 oftentimes gets lost in the mix of other Star Trek voyages and is often treated

Movie Review – What We Left Behind: Looking Back at Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (2018)

What We Left Behind: Looking Back at Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, 2018

Directed by Ira Steven Behr and David Zappone

Featuring Nana Visitor, Rene Auberjonois, Alexander Siddig, Terry Farrell, Michael Dorn, Colm Meaney, Cirroc Lofton, and Armin Shimerman

Deep Space Nine is considered the “dark Star Trek.” Ask most any Trek fan and you’ll receive a similar summary of the series. This reputation is not unearned, but it is incomplete. DS9 is not a bleak show. It is not a cynical show. It’s as idealistic and humanistic as any previous entry, if not more so. It also presents something that the other shows in the franchise don’t quite have in this kind of abundance: heart. The show is dark, but it earns its darkness by contrast. The depth of character and their aspirations allow you to really feel the depths of despair that they sometimes find themselves in.

Exclusive: ‘What We Left Behind’ Clip Has the DS9 Cast Reflecting on the Grueling Makeup

On May 13th, the documentary What We Left Behind: Looking Back at Star Trek: Deep Space Nine will hit theaters for one night only. Today, we’re thrilled to debut an exclusive clip from the film where the actors reflect on the grueling makeup process. Because exotic-looking aliens have been so engrained with the idea of Star Trek, we tend not to think about how that makeup affects the actors. This clip provides some nice insight into what it was like for folks like Michael Dorn (Worf) or Rene Auberjonois (Odo) who had to put on loads of prosthetics …

Brewster McCloud

Robert Altman’s first opportunity to cut loose with an entirely personal film is this scattershot comedy that satirizes the American scene, taking pokes at patriotism, greed, and silly police movies. To his favorite eccentrics from M*As*H Bud Cort and Sally Kellerman he adds the new discovery Shelley Duvall; the movie’s like a bag of absurdist jokes that spilled onto a Houston Highway.

‘Images’ Blu-ray Review

Stars: Susannah York, Rene Auberjonois, Marcel Bozzuffi, Hugh Millais, Cathryn Harrison | Written by Robert Altman, Susannah York | Directed by Robert Altman

One night, children’s author Cathryn (Susannah York) is home alone when she receives a mysterious call claiming that her husband is in a hotel room with another woman. This cruel rumour triggers a wave of paranoia in Cathryn that will plunge her into the mouth of madness.

Cathryn insists that she and husband Hugh (Rene Auberjonois) escape to their cottage retreat. Once there, the hallucinations begin. Cathryn’s anxiety has followed them. Before long, other characters enter the mix: Rene (Marcel Bozzuffi), the ghost of an old lover; Marcel (Hugh Millais), a passionate brute; and Susannah (Cathryn Harrison), Marcel’s daughter, and the very image of Cathryn herself.

Spatial and temporal rules break down. At any one time each of the men, who are apparently interchangeable, may pop in or out of existence,

Blu-ray Review – Images (1972)

Images, 1972.

Directed by Robert Altman.

Starring Susannah York, Cathryn Harrison, Hugh Millais, Rene Auberjonois, and Marcel Bozzuffi.

Synopsis:

A schizophrenic housewife has visions of different people in her life and starts to kill them off, not being sure if they are real or not.

Essentially, Images is a horror film from a director not normally associated with horror films. In fact, Robert Altman wasn’t really associated with any one genre in particular but was a director that managed to be successful when he did tackle something a little left field, and some of the best horror movies – or at least, some of the standout horror movies – have been made by filmmakers stepping away from expectations and trying something different. If nothing else, Images is a movie that taps into the fundamental nature of horror and how the things most familiar to us can often be the most terrifying.

Robert Altman’s ‘Images’

Do we sometimes ‘grow into’ movies? This one now plays like a minor masterpiece. ‘Seventies auteur Robert Altman proves himself an expert practitioner of psychological hallucinations, in an intense tale of a schizophrenic children’s author who can’t keep her husband and two (imagined?) lovers sorted out. It’s one of the best, and best-looking puzzle pictures ever.

Robert Altman’s Images (1972) starring Susannah York will be available on Blu-ray From Arrow Academy March 20th

The early seventies were a period of remarkable activity for Robert Altman, producing masterpiece after masterpiece. At the time he came to make Images, Mash and McCabe & Mrs. Miller were behind him, with The Long Goodbye, California Split and Nashville still to come.

Originally conceived in the mid-sixties, Images concerns a pregnant children s author (Susannah York, who won the Best Actress award at the Cannes Film Festival) whose husband (Rene Auberjonois) may or may not be having an affair. While on vacation in Ireland, her mental state becomes increasingly unstable resulting in paranoia, hallucinations and visions of a doppelgänger.

Scored by an Oscar-nominated John Williams, with sounds by Stomu Yamash’ta (The Man Who Fell to Earth), Images also boasts the remarkable cinematography of Vilmos Zsigmond (Close Encounters of the Third Kind

Andy Dick Fired from Back-to-Back Movies Over Sexual Misconduct Claims

Andy Dick Fired from Back-to-Back Movies Over Sexual Misconduct Claims
Comedic actor Andy Dick has confirmed that he was fired from the indie comedy Raising Buchanan, becoming the latest Hollywood figure to come under fire for sexual harassment. While none of the victims could be reached, two sources from the set claimed that the actor would grope other people's genitals, along with unwanted kissing and licking. The actor also sexually propositioned at least four members of the production, but it isn't known if they were cast or crew. The initial report from The Hollywood Reporter this morning featured an interview with Andy Dick, who admitted his dismissal from the set. After that report was posted, another producer reached out to THR to reveal the embattled actor was actually fired from another project, a vampire comedy called Vampire Dad, just a few days after he was fired from Raising Buchanan.

2017-10-31T07:34:23-07:00Andy Dick Fired for Alleged Sexual Harassment

Former NewsRadio star Andy Dick has attempted to make a career out of being offensive and inappropriate. That's why it comes as little surprise that he was recently fired from a small role in an independent movie over claims that he repeatedly harassed and assaulted multiple members of the production. He also was apparently not doing his job very well. In other words, it was all business as usual for Andy Dick.

Via The Hollywood Reporter.

Andy Dick has been dropped from the independent feature film Raising Buchanan following accusations of sexual harassment and misconduct on set.

The Hollywood Reporter was not able to reach any of the alleged victims, however, two sources detailed Dick’s inappropriate behavior, which included groping people’s genitals, unwanted kissing/licking and sexual propositions of at least four members of the production.

Scott Reviews Kelly Reichardt’s Certain Woman [Criterion Collection Blu-ray Review]

Kelly Reichardt’s triptych film Certain Women is adapted from three short stories by Maile Meloy, and retains the feeling the form is so effective at evoking. Spare on plot, they isolate moments from people’s lives. Some of are overtly dramatic (an early standoff with a rifle perhaps suggests more exterior conflict than the rest of the film will yield), but most of are fairly mundane. But they leave one feeling as though some untapped perspective or desire has been revealed, and we’re not yet fully prepared how to take stock of it.

As there are three stories to account for, I don’t want this review to turn into a complete synopsis; and as the first and third sections have generated the most discussion over the past year and a half, the second story, led by Michelle Williams. When I first saw the film at Sundance 2016, the

Certain Women

Is this the new feminist minimalism? Director Kelly Reichart doesn’t like labels, and to her credit as a woman director, her amalgam of three tangential short stories transcends the format in a studious, low-key way. Four interesting actresses present interesting portraits that illuminate the realities of life in the great Middle America.

Exclusive ‘Blood Stripe’ Trailer: War Comes Home In L.A. Film Festival Winner

Bonne Fête, Bujold.

by Seán McGovern

Today we celebrate the 75th birthday of Québécoise actress Genevieve Bujold, one of the lesser-lauded Francophone talents. Apart from having a wonderful name to pronounce (dinner with Geneviève Bujold and René Auberjonois, perhaps?), she has more than 70 films under her belt. Instead of doing a retrospective of an actresses who not all of us might know or appreciate, consider this an introduction to some of her greatest work, including Anne of a Thousand Days, Dead Ringers and of course, not Star Trek: Voyager.
