Rebecca Netflix

“Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again.” That’s the iconic opening line of Daphne du Maurier‘s 1938 novel Rebecca, a gothic thriller which largely takes place in an English estate called Manderley. The book has been adapted several times over the years (Orson Welles once starred in a radio version), but its most famous adaptation is the 1940 movie that stands as the only film Alfred Hitchcock directed which won Best Picture at the Oscars.

Hollywood has been trying to get another version made for years, and now director Ben Wheatley (High-Rise, Free Fire) is the latest to take on the challenge. Learn more about the Rebecca Netflix adaptation below. Read More »

call me by your name long take

The peach scene has gotten all the press for Call Me By Your Name, but perhaps no other scene better encapsulates the film’s hazy, dream-like atmosphere than the languid long take following Elio (Timothée Chalamet) as he declares his feelings for Oliver (Armie Hammer) while they circle a World War I memorial in Pandino, Italy.

This Call Me By Your Name long take scene seems like it would have sprung from the mind of director Luca Guadagnino and cinematographer Sayombhu Mukdeeprom, but Chalamet recently revealed that this wasn’t the case. It was actually Hammer’s idea.

Sorry to Bother You review

Mark it down now: no other movie in 2018 will come close to this one in terms of balancing far-out weirdness with a compelling, meaningful story.
