Best Improvised Scenes

While the art of improvisation is most commonly associated with comedy, it’s a creative process that is used on movies of every kind. Sometimes improvisation happens during a table read and inspires something to be written into the script, other times it happens on set while the cameras are rolling. No matter how it happens, it has resulted in some classic moments in cinema.

Now a video attempts to pinpoint the Top 10 Improvised Scenes In Movie History. That’s a pretty tall order, and I can almost guarantee that once you watch the video after the jump, some of you are going to be upset, or will at least have some different opinions on how this list was put together.

kubrick-blu-box

There isn’t a thing that hasn’t been written about the films of Stanley Kubrick. His films have been celebrated and reviled; some originally reviled have been reassessed as masterpieces; reams of copy have been written on even his least-appreciated movies. And yet they pull us in time and again. His films feature richly developed concepts that we can appreciate differently as our own lives progress and change.

Kubrick is the most visible representation of a sort of filmmaking that has largely vanished. He was likely the last director to enjoy total creative freedom with the backing of a major movie studio; his deal with Warner Bros. let him do what he wanted, on his own time. His 1999 passing happens to coincide with the transition into a fully digital filmmaking era and into a time when studio films are ever-more focused on sequels and familiar concepts.

The idea of ranking Kubrick films is somewhat absurd; there’s really only one that can be at #1. But there’s a lot of room for discussion about what his other twelve features offer. Warner Bros. recently issued a new box set (Stanley Kubrick: The Masterpiece Collection) with a gorgeous outer shell (above), a fine array of behind the scenes material, and disc packaging that is an improvement over the last blu-ray set from the studio. That box of eight films had us going back through all of Kubrick’s movies, and we’ve laid them out in order below.   Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

The Simpsons Clockwork Orange 1

Sunday on Twitter, former Simpsons consultant Brad Bird said “In The Simpsons universe, Christmas comes at Halloween; all stops are pulled, budgets are increased, no holds are barred.” He was referring to the show’s annual Treehouse of Horror event, which celebrated its 25th anniversary on Sunday. The highlight of the show’s three segments (all of which were pretty fantastic) was A Clockwork Yellow. The story reimagined Moe, Homer, Lenny and Carl as Alex and his droogs from Stanley Kubrick‘s A Clockwork Orange. It borrowed dialogue, settings, shots, and music; in the story things get weird, and eventually just nosedive down a Kubrickian rabbit hole. It’s a much-watch for fans of The Simpsons and Kubrick alike. Read More »
