Another German Contribution
German producers delight in taking an occasional fling at France, England and Russia by filming stories dealing with historical characters who were not exactly a credit to their respective countries, even though they did furnish colorful inspiration for plays and novels. The latest stab in this connection is contained in a production now known as “Chained,” the incidents in which are said to be based on the life of Auguste Rodin, the French sculptor. Read More »

Quote:
Turkish filmmaker Zeki Demirkubuz is adapting “Notes from Underground,” Fyodor Dostoevsky’s groundbreaking 19th century novel, for his newest directorial effort, which he is currently shooting in the Turkish capital.

Filming for the movie, called “Yeraltý” (Underground), has been under way for four weeks now, with actor Engin Günaydýn, praised for his portrayal of a small-town man in the Taylan Brothers’ critically acclaimed 2009 dark comedy “Vavien,” in the leading role.

Demirkubuz, the director of such acclaimed movies as “Kader” (Destiny) and “Kýskanmak” (Envy), said the long screenplay for the new film was a loose adaptation of Dostoevsky’s existential novella. Read More »

Jack Arnold – It Came from Outer Space (1953)

29f7c043f76a2bde437fd0d52a185152

This thoughtful, prototypical film was Universals initial foray into science fiction during the 1950s. While technically not the first sci-fi movie to explore the theme of benevolent aliens threatened by the ignorant, knee-jerk hostility of humans, it more or less set the standard for those that followed. Most of the credit for this belongs to a story treatment by SF legend Ray Bradbury, the sure-handed direction of Jack Arnold (who would go on to helm most of Universal\’s top drawer genre flicks of the decade), and a fine performance by lead Richard Carlson… It Came From Outer Space remains the real deal, a genuine genre classic. It\’s easily one of the best science fiction films of the \’50s.
