I Am Ali LA Film School Q & A Director Claire Lewins

‘I Am Ali’ is a fantastic documentary about The Greatest Boxer of All Time, Muhammad Ali. The guy foresaw the future & taped his children’s phone conversations. It’s a very sweet side of the fierce competitor we never knew existed. This Q & A with Writer/Director Claire Lewins was recorded LIVE at the Los Angeles Film School.

BIRDMAN Hilarious Foreign Press Conference SCENE

Here’s a movie you simply cannot miss. Michael Keaton is Riggan Thomson & he owned the 90′s by starring as the blockbuster Comic Book hero, “BIRDMAN.”  Is art imitating life here?  Each performance is solid & Keaton is the foundation.  Edward Norton plays a Broadway actor with an ego dwarfing that of The Terminator himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger. Emma Stone plays Riggan’s daughter, who’s had a front row seat to her father’s fall from cinematic grace.

As much as I loved Michael Keaton‘s performance (He’s a lock to grab an Oscar nod for Best Actor) this movie belongs to director, Alejandro G. Iñárritu. The shots are incredible.  He seamlessly wove in visual effects, a heart-pounding music score lead by the incredible drumming of 4x Grammy winner Antonio Sanchez. Take a look at this Foreign Press conference scene. It’s one gorgeous continuous shot.  Plus, you get an idea of why celebrities HATE doing press.  Watch Keaton’s face & his anxiety build. BIRDMAN or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance is incredible film-making. RATED R

EXODUS: GODS & KINGS

Christian Bale & 20th Century Fox presented select scenes (w/ temporary music & unfinished visual effects) from “Exodus: Gods & Kings,” which opens in theaters December.  Bale admitted his knowledge of organized religion was limited at best.  Being an avid researcher, he dove head first into reading up on all types of religious literature.  His ‘Go To’ religious film back in the day was, Charlton Heston in “Ten Commandments”

When director Ridley Scott first told Bale about this project, Christian asked, “Swords & Sandals?” To which Ridley replied, “Yeah, straight up.”  To my surprise, Bale admitted part of his research included watching two classic period comedies, Monty Python’s “Life of Brian,” and Mel Brooks, “History of the World Part 1.”  Do be serious, you have to be aware of humor. Bale needed to gauge what was funny & what wasn’t for Exodus God & Kings. In fact, when things were very heavy on the set, he’d think about those funny movies to lighten the mood.  Those films were used as a guide.  The cast includes: Joel Edgerton, Sigourney Weaver, Sir Ben Kingsley, John Tuturro & Aaron Paul.

The footage I saw was outstanding.  The entire theater rumbled as the horse-drawn chariots raced along the desert floor.  It’s all there: The Burning Bush, parting of the Red Sea, 10 plagues terrorizing Egypt, 400 slaves in bondage.  When it’s all said & done, EXODUS will contain over 1,500 visual special effects shots. In Hollywood terms, it’s hard to fathom that this epic was shot in a mere 74 days. This is what movie making is all about & I for one, can’t wait.  Here’s a new trailer & a behind-the-scenes peek at Ridley Scott & his crew.
