I considered Michael Winner a friend. Not a friend in the sense that he’d loan me 50 bucks when I was short on rent, but a friend in that his kindness, openness, advice and cheerful nature were inspiring to me, personally.
I like to think I perhaps brightened his day on occasion as well. Maybe there was a mutual appreciation; I’m not quite sure. All I know is that learning of his passing this morning (he died at age 77 after an illness), I feel a great sense of loss. All fans of old-fashioned, unironic, no-nonsense genre filmmaking should too.Read more »

With the Guillermo del Toro-executive-produced MAMA cleaning

UK director Jeremy Lovering’s feature debut was developed and filmed unconventionally. He kept much of the story—its twists and turns and frights and games— from his two leads, only revealing the entirety to Allen Leech; he who plays the one playing tricks. While the average moviegoer rarely needs such back story, viewing the film with context in this case feels a tad more necessary. Although Lovering’s search for verisimilitude was not in vain, it does materialize in both grounded, raw performance and a strong sense that no one has any idea of what’s going on.Read more »
Where V/H/S was a raw, lo-fi and frightening odyssey via POV, its sequel is—and from the very outset—bigger, weirder and even reflective of its predecessor. In the first few minutes alone, V/H/S 2 runs through almost every format previously explored, from spy camera to camcorder to iChat; and almost every perspective as well, from investigative to voyeuristic (often both at the same time) to daily doings. And while less traditionally dreadful, where it all leads is infinitely more thrilling.Read more »
