If you ask me, Christopher Nolan‘s The Dark Knight is a masterwork, not just as a superhero movie but as a film. But like most great filmmakers, Nolan wears his film influences on his sleeves, and it’s very evident in his work. We’ve talked previously about how Nolan’s love for the James Bond franchise has shown up in his films from time to time (For instance, The Dark Knight Rises opening sequence was clearly inspired by 1989’s Licence to Kill). A new video essay presents scenes from director Michael Mann‘s films side by side with sequences from Nolan’s work on The Dark Knight.

One of the most underrated movies from the last decade was undoubtedly Collateral. The raw thriller from director Michael Mann features two oustanding performances from both Tom Cruise and Jamie Foxx. The former delivers one of the best performances of his career as the hitman Vince, while the latter, usually showy, actor disappears into the everyman role of Max perfectly.
Obviously actors like Cruise and Foxx get paid the big bucks for a reason, but you really get a sense for how amazing they are at their craft when you see some rehearsal footage without the ambiance of the city of Los Angeles and the setting of a car around them. Straight from the special features of the home video release, you can watch the Collateral rehearsal footage after the jump. Read More »

There’s a good chance no one has ever thought that they’d like to see a movie that intersects the worlds of films such as Star Wars, Scarface, John Wick, Collateral, Terminator, Trainspotting, Saturday Night Fever and more. But that’s exactly what Antonio Maria Da Silva has done with a wholly strange, mesmerizing and fantastic cleverly edited short compiled by using clips from all these movies.
We’ve featured supercuts and trailer remixes before, but this Hell’s Club mash-up is something completely different. We don’t want to give anything away, but Da Silva sets up the video by saying, “There is a place or fictional characters meet. Outside of time, outside of all logic, this place is known as Hell’s Club. Just watch it and be mesmerized. Read More »

The /Filmcast: After Dark – Ep. 47 – Michael Mann and Rian Johnson’s Brick (GUEST: Dan Trachtenberg)
Posted on Sunday, April 26th, 2009 by David Chen
The /Filmcast: After Dark is a recording of what happens right after The /Filmcast is over, when the kids have gone to bed and the guys feel free to speak whatever is on their minds. In other words, it’s the leftover and disorganized ramblings, mindfarts, and brain diarrhea from The /Filmcast, all in one convenient audio file. In this episode, Dave Chen, Peter Sciretta, Devindra Hardawar and Adam Quigley discuss some of the works of Michael Mann, lavish praise on Rian Johnson’s Brick, and debate whether or not it’s okay to Twitter during a movie. Special guest Dan Trachtenberg joins us from the Totally Rad Show.
