Contender – Production Designer Yohei Taneda, The Hateful Eight

By Mark London Williams

If it would seem unlikely that studios would release two westerns at Christmas time, it might be unlikelier still that both would belong to that smaller sub-genre of “snow westerns.” Yet both The Revenant and Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight find themselves in that same unique niche occupied by such under sung classics as... »

Director George Miller’s Long and Winding Journey Making Mad Max: Fury Road

By Jack Egan

Mad Max: Fury Road, directed by George Miller, is not so much a sequel to the three Mad Max films that preceded it as a reinvention of the post-apocalyptic series launched into a higher orbit of mythological storytelling and non-stop kinetic action. Multi-camera digital cinematography by Oscar-winning director of photography John Seale (The English... »

You lower the needle on the record and you hear Dre echo the words, “You’re about to witness the strength of street knowledge.” The beat drops and Ice Cube fiercely slaps your ears rapping three words that changed the game forever, “Straight outta Compton…” When Ice Cube announced in February 2014 that was he... »
