      'Arrival,' 'Dunkirk' and the Distraction of Nonlin

      July 27, 2017, 12:55 pm
      When people tell me to just turn my brain off and enjoy a movie, I wish that it were so easy. I’ve been trained to overthink films as I watch them. I have two degrees in the study of cinema. I can’t ignore what I know or how I’ve been wired to always analyze images I’m seeing on screen as they’re cut together any more than a mechanic can stare at a puttering motor and pretend not to know how to fix it.

      Dunkirk and the Very Loud Sounds of War

      July 27, 2017, 12:55 pm
      To help convey the “visceral realism” of Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk,” the director needed an intense soundscape for the legendary evacuation of more than 300,000 British and Allied troops under German bombardment.

      The Visual Affects of Reality

      July 27, 2017, 12:55 pm
      Two days after wrapping on the $65 million dollar budget film Pete’s Dragon, David Lowery headed home to Texas to make a small film (literally, the aspect ratio is 1.37:1) with a group of friends called A Ghost Story. The budget? $100,000. In itself, the budget is a good marker of how different the films are. And yet in both films, Lowery uses visual effects in a very calculated and affecting way, two qualities that are often lacking in effects-heavy films nowadays. Indeed, many an article has been written about the CGI overkill in Hollywood franchises. In his article for Variety on The Age of Ultron, Brian Lowry argues that “the ability to mount enormous battles featuring multiple super-powered characters, however, has become its own trap. And while the results can be visually astounding, the movies regularly feel as lifeless and mechanized as the technology responsible for bringing those visions to fruition.”

      How Schoonmaker Tamed the Beastly 'Raging Bull'

      July 27, 2017, 9:10 am
      Frequently voted one of the best films of the 1980s, Martin Scorsese's Raging Bull, the story of self-destructive pugilist Jake La Motta, was a labor of love and genius. This is particularly true on the part of the film's editor, Thelma Schoonmaker, ACE, who played the KEM editing machine like a harpsichord. A long-time Scorsese collaborator, she would win her first Academy Award for the epic.
