1 Lug

Ciao ragazzi, è passato un po’ di tempo dal mio ultimo post, ma non preoccupatevi, sono tornata XD E oggi voglio mostrarvi una gallery aristica che ha come soggetto il mondo di Batman? Conoscete Batman? Certo che sì, il mitico uomo pipistrello, dapprima un fumetto e divenuto poi un film adattato da molti registi negli ultimi anni: Tim Burton, Joel Schumacher, Christopher Nolan. E ora diventato, insieme a Joker, soggetto delle opere più famose di Leonardo da Vinci e Van Gogh grazie all’artista Vartan Garnikyan.

Even If: “And the Oscar will never go to…”

21 Feb La Dolce Vita CinemaLiquido

Ci avviciniamo semore di più alla magica Notte degli Oscar 2015, ma in questo post non parleremo del possibile vincitore di quest’anno. Voglio mostrarvi quali sono stati i registi che non hanno mai ricevuto l’Oscar per il Miglior Regista, anche se ne hanno ricevuti in altre categorie. Cominciamo!

We’re getting closer to the Oscar Night 2015, but I don’t want to talk about the possible winner; indeed, I most want to talk about those who the Oscar for Best Director has never gone to. Let’s start!

    Have a tip for you: Shining! Yeah, Stanley Kubrick never won an Oscar in his entire life! It sounds just a little bit impossible!

  • Psyco Cinema Liquido

    Who shot this scene? Sir Alfred Hitchcock! I do not believe he never won an Oscar!

The icon of silent movies never won an Oscar: Charlie Chaplin.

Orson Welles CinemaLiquido

Anthony Perkins, Romy Schneider and Orson Welles. Orson Welles made the cinema history, but never won an Oscar.

Sergio Leone CinemaLiquido

Spaghetti western is the genre that made history all over the world. Quentin Tarantino always gets inspired by Sergio Leone, the most famous worldwide Italian director who never won the Oscar. Here with Clint Eastwood.

Federico Fellini was the man who doesn’t want to grow.

Fritz Lang CinemaLiquido

The futuristic director Fritz Lang never won an Oscar, but Metropolis is still a successful film.

Even if: Il sorpasso VS Fast&Furious

8 Dic

Cars, racings, roads around the world. All that parts are so similar in both movies. But they’re so different too.

Il sorpasso (The Overtaking) by Dino Risi is an important Italian film of the 60s, starring Vittorio Gassman and Catherine Spaak. A couple of friends is roaming around the cities by car, driving at full speed. In the last scene they’re trying to overtake another car, to have fun, but they have an accident and Roberto is dead. When the police is going to come there, Bruno pretend to forget his friend’s name. The film is famous for showing wealthy people’s carefree way of living in the 60s.

Well, Fast&Furious has not a good plot, even if all people know it. But it’s funny to see different way of filming cars races in the cinema, and all the different meanings linked to both them. I think The Overtaking has more suspance than Fast&Furious, also because this two movies are made for different reasons.

Even if: The Artist

19 Lug

 

The Artist by Michel Hazanavicius won five Oscars in 2011 celebrating the comeback of silent films in balck and white. Well, The Artist is not properly a real film in balck and white: it looks more like a modern film shot normally and then faded after in black and white, than a film shot immediately like the ones in 1920. Instead in 2007 Karl Lagerfeld made a short film as a presentation for his new semiannual collection in 2008 “Paris-Moscou”, remembering how was usefull for Chanel’s creativity her relationship with Dmitri Pavlovitch, so with Russian world, in the 20s. This short looks like a genuine movie of the 20s, thanks to many special effects such as slight shakes of the camera, ruined film effect and deliberately badly cut scenes. So The Artist was considered a modern balck and white film, even if it’s not the first one in XXI century.

Quando Michel Hazanavicius vinse cinque Oscar con The Artist, 2011, tutti trovarono che l’idea di riportare in auge lo stile cinematografico muto e in bianco e nero degli anni ’20 fosse stata originale e innovativa, da premiare. E sebbene i sogni di gloria di Hazanavicius si siano comunque avverati, bisogna sapere che già nel 2007 un improbabile regista girò un cortometraggio come presentazione della sua sfilata di moda semiannuale per Chanel, “Paris-Moscou” 2008: Karl Lagerfeld. Nel corto vengono filmati alcuni momenti significativi della carriera di Gabrielle dal 1913 al 1923, quando dalla sua relazione con Dmitri Pavlovitch crebbe in lei il desiderio di ispirarsi allo stile russo. Lagerfeld, ricollegandosi alla storia della fondatrice del marchio, decise di reinventare lo stile francese unendolo a quello russo creando la linea “Paris-Moscou”. E quale miglior mezzo se non un breve cortometraggio a inizio sfilata che spiegasse la ragione della sua ispirazione? La macchina da presa tremolante, l’effetto antico e segnato della pellicola e le scene volutamente tagliate con imprecisione (simboli delle vecchie pellicole anni ’20), danno un effetto più veritiero di un film che sembra girato davvero a quell’epoca! Non vale lo stesso per The Artist, che sembra più che altro un film moderno girato normalmente e decolorato e silenziato successivamente.
