Paul Thomas Anderson Admits He’s Most Proud of ‘The Master’ and Wants Emmanuel Lubezki to Shoot One of His Films
Paul Thomas Anderson has been making the press rounds as “Phantom Thread” heads into nationwide release, and his most recent bit of promotion included a Reddit Ama in which he was extremely blunt about a wide-ranging list of subjects. Many directors might have difficulty choosing which film they are most proud of, but not Anderson. The director listed “The Master” when asked, and he elaborated on one of the reasons the film is special to him in another response.

“The first time we shot spherical was on ‘The Master,'” Anderson said. “It seemed like a good fit, evoking the old 50s films like ‘Vertigo’ and ‘North By Northwest,’ those large format films but in a boxy frame. It was a nice change from the earlier films. I wanna shoot scope again though…

Showtime President David Nevins spoke with the Television Critics Association this weekend and inevitably he was pressed for Twin Peaks news by the reporters in attendance. Unfortunately, Nevins said he has not asked David Lynch about another season at all. But that doesn’t mean it won’t happen. The Showtime boss certainly hasn’t give up on […]

Showtime says the door is always open for more Twin Peaks

David Lynch and Mark Frost’s cult show Twin Peaks returned to the small screen last year for a new limited series set 25 years after the 90s TV phenomenon, and while Lynch has said that he’d “never say never” to more episodes, as yet there’s been no official word as to whether we can expect another season.

However, it seems the ball is firmly in Lynch and Frost’s court, as Showtime head of programming Gary Levine has revealed at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour that the network’s door “is always open” to more Twin Peaks.

“The door at Showtime is always open to Mark and David for more Twin Peaks or anything else they want to talk about,” said Levine. “But let’s remember it took 25 years for Mark and David to go from 1.0 to 2.0. Add to that what David did in the last

Showtime Bosses On More ‘Twin Peaks’, ‘I’m Dying Up Here’ Changes, ‘The Affair’ End Game, ‘White Famous’ Cancellation — TCA

The long-awaited new installment of Twin Peaks on Showtime was billed as a limited-run event. But that has not stopped fans from asking about another season. The networks’ CEO David Nevins and president Gary Levine fielded some of these questions during the network’s portion of the winter TCA press tour. Nevins said that there have been no conversations with co-creator/director David Lynch about more episodes. Levine reminded everyone that it took 25 years after the first…

‘Twin Peaks’: Showtime Bosses Say ‘The Door Is Open’ For Another Season
A new edition of “Twin Peaks” isn’t yet in the cards at Showtime, but the network’s top executives say they remain willing to entertain future seasons.

“I dont know how soon he wants to do it,” Showtime programming head Gary Levine said Saturday at the Television Critics Association press tour. “[But] the door at showtime is always open to Mark [Frost] and David [Lynch] to ‘Twin Peaks’ or anything else they want to talk about.”

Levine and Showtime CEO David Nevins are frequently asked the question of what might be next for the franchise, but as Levine (who, as an ABC executive, worked on the show in the early 1990s), noted: “Let’s remember it took 25 years for Mark and David to go from 1.0 to 2.0. Add to that what David did in last few years was nothing short of Herculean. To direct 18 hours of television, that belongs in the Guinness Book of World Records.

"The X-Files," Season 11, Episode 1 Recap: We Do Our Work

  • MUBI
X-Files Recap is a weekly column by Keith Uhlich covering Chris Carter's 10-episode continuation of the X-Files television series.How do you follow the end of the world? Hold that thought. Let’s start with another question, one of the previous year’s most pressing: Is it film or is it television? I could be talking about David Lynch and Mark Frost’s Twin Peaks revival, which I covered for Mubi this past summer, and which caused quite a stir after it placed second in Sight & Sound magazine’s 2017 movie poll, as well as first on a year-end list from the French film journal Cahiers du cinéma. I could also be talking about the subject of this column, the long-running science-fiction serial The X-Files, which just returned on January 3rd for a ten episode 11th season, and which its creator—guru-like surfing journalist-turned-tv showrunner Chris Carter—has often equated with making a weekly “mini-movie.

Review: Phantom Thread Exquisitely Unravels Genius

In terms of the last three films crafted by the greatest showman in cinema, P.T. Anderson, in which I include his latest - dare I say - masterpiece, I’m fairly distrusting of reviews conducted after a single screening. And yet, that is exactly what I’m nevertheless delighted to be tasked with achieving today. There aren’t many filmmakers operating on this dense a level - the works of Stanley Kubrick and David Lynch come to mind - but films like The Master and Inherent Vice are the best kind of heady cinematic riddles; wherein each layer is meticulously constructed to offer distinctly nuanced energies. Many will, and have, countered this argument by saying films shouldn’t require three admission tickets in order to catch an idea of...

10 Directors to Watch: Joseph Kahn Blasts Racist Rhetoric in Battle-Rap ‘Bodied’

10 Directors to Watch: Joseph Kahn Blasts Racist Rhetoric in Battle-Rap ‘Bodied’
It was relatively early in Kahn’s lucrative career as a music-video director that he began toying with the idea of making a feature film about battle rapping. The only problem? He hatched the concept while directing videos for Eminem around the time of “8 Mile.”

“Obviously, he’d just made the best battle rap movie of all time, so that put it under wraps until I could figure out a way in there,” says the South Korea-born, U.S.-raised Kahn. “I had to think, what do I have to say with this material? Not just the fact that I want to make it, but is there something there to mine to express something about society that justifies making this thing?”

Nearly 15 years after the idea was seeded — in which time he won multiple Grammys and VMAs for his work with Taylor Swift and Eminem, and directed the features “Torque” and hyperkinetic horror satire “Detention,” which

Showtime: What the Network Learned from a ‘Twin Peaks’ 2017 and What’s Coming in 2018

There was one Showtime series that made 2017 a fundamentally different year than any other in recent memory. For Gary Levine, Showtime’s President of Programming, the return of David Lynch to television rewrote many TV rules and highlighted the ways that the network regards its series as triumphs or otherwise.

“In 2017, we had a little show called ‘Twin Peaks’ come back. As you talk about how you measure success, it’s been on so many top 10 lists. It was creatively so adventurous, so satisfying,” Levine said. “In terms of numbers, ‘Twin Peaks’ had relatively modest numbers on our linear platforms. But when it came to sign-ups and people streaming and watching on other platforms, it broke all kinds of records for us. So that was sort of the first time we saw that even within measuring audiences, there can be huge swings of where a show has more strength and

Quote of the Week: David Lynch

"I don't like the word ironic. I like the word absurdity, and I don't really understand the word 'irony' too much. The irony comes when you try to verbalize the absurd. When irony happens without words, it's much more exalted."

David Lynch (20 January 1946) - American director, screenwriter, producer, painter, musician, actor, and photographer. Check out his TV series Twin Peaks!

Denis Villeneuve Would’ve Loved to Direct Bond 25, But Nothing Will Get in the Way of ‘Dune’

Denis Villeneuve Would’ve Loved to Direct Bond 25, But Nothing Will Get in the Way of ‘Dune’
Despite having star Daniel Craig locked in to return and a November 2019 release date already set, the next James Bond film is still without a confirmed director. Reports broke last summer that the frontrunners to direct Bond 25 were Denis Villeneuve, Yann Demange, and David Mackenzie, with the former being Craig’s personal choice to replace “Skyfall” and “Spectre” director Sam Mendes. Unfortunately, we officially remove Villeneuve’s name from the consideration list.

The director is fresh off the critical acclaim of “Blade Runner 2049” and is quickly moving on to his passion project, an adaptation of Frank Herbert’s landmark science-fiction novel “Dune.” Villeneuve admits to ScreenCrush that he turned down the Bond 25 directing gig only because he’s previously committed to bringing “Dune” back to the big screen. Otherwise, Villeneuve

The Greatest Geek Moments of 2017

The Greatest Geek Moments of 2017
The year of 2017 was a great year for geekdom.

The Winchester brothers opened the “Supernatural” panel at San Diego Comic-Con with a surprise performance of “Carry On Wayward Son” by Kansas.

TV Riches. Here are just a few highlights...

Year in review lists/recaps each day. TV is too vast a topic for one list but here's a list of personal favorites from Spencer Coile 

2017 was a messy year. While we may be entrenched in cultural, political, and social turmoil, one area that keeps getting better is television. From the return of David Lynch's Twin Peaks and NBC's Will & Grace (proving that some revivals do work), to the rise of Hulu series, through  the continuation of prestige dramas from HBO, the golden age of TV continues. Because there's such a vast array of shows out there we all have our blindspots so please know that this is but a personal list and you should definitely share yours.  To make room for all of the excellent work put out this year, here are favorite individual and duo performances but let's kick things off with a tribute to the ladies via Ensembles.
