    Default All Things:Martin Scorsese

    If Kubrick can have his own thread...

    HUGO May Successfully Tie 3D and Film History Together | CHUD.com

    BUT, regardless of the 3D stuff, there was something even more interesting than that snuck into the responses…

    I don’t want to give away too much of the plot, so I won’t say how, but the early history of film plays huge part in “Hugo”. For cinephiles this is a great opportunity to feel glib about your knowledge, and for those who are less versed on the subject I think it offers an interesting history lesson. It’s clear that Scorsese had fun with this aspect of the film, which may very well have been a factor in his choosing to direct it. [sic]

    You can read the full report at /Film.

    Now we’ve know for a while that the book’s story is rooted in the work and hobbies of Georges Méliès, one of the earliest pioneers of filmmaking and certainly the first special effects director. Famous for shorts like A Trip To The Moon, the magic and theatrics of his film apparently inform the book, and it seems Marty might have lived up to the hopes I expressed when reporting that Johnny Depp had been caught on set.

    For Hugo Cabret this dedication to the lastest technology is right in line with the spirit of the book itself, which is heavily influenced by the work and imagination of George Méliès, one of the earliest special effects focused directors. The book itself is also a multi-media experience that blends prose with pictures in a fascinating way, and seems to have inspired Scorsese to bring an equally varied set of techniques to the screen.

    Early Buzz: Martin Scorsese’s ‘Hugo’ Proves “The Possibilities of 3D To Be Something More Than A Novelty”

    This is largely a movie about overcoming the past, whether it be the loss of a father or in Kingsley’s case something else. It is also about the search for self-identity and offers some profound if unsubtle ruminations on the subject. The sincerity of the subject matter is such that the disclaimer “for a children’s film” need not be added to any claim about its merits- “Hugo” stands on its own as a singular new work by a beloved director.

    Martin Scorsese's 'Hugo' Forces Cinephiles to Love 3D | The Wrap Movies

    Be interesting to hear Ebert's take on this flick, since he's been so anti-3D.

    Martin Scorsese to Direct THE SNOWMAN

    I was among the cinephiles who were unmoved by the first trailer for Hugo. I never should have doubted Martin Scorsese: an early screening at the New York Film Festival drew breathless praise from the lucky few who saw it. Four decades later, Scorsese is still a master filmmaker. As is customary for a master filmmaker, Scorsese has a lot on his plate: Silence, The Irishman, The Wolf of Wall Street, a remake of The Gambler, and a Frank Sinatra biopic among other things. A report from Variety suggests a new project, The Snowman, could leapfrog the others for the next slot in Scorsese’s schedule. The director has reportedly been circling the adaptation of the bestselling Norwegian mystery novel for the last month or so; Paramount has not yet made a formal offer, but Scorsese “is now seriously considering making it his next project.”

    The Maguffin in The Snowman is the pink scarf of a missing woman, found wrapped around an “ominous-looking snowman” in what appears to be the work of a serial killer. More on the project and a full synopsis after the jump.

    Matthew Michael Carnahan (The Kingdom) is in talks to adapt The Snowman, the seventh book in Jo Nesbo‘s series about detective Harry Hole. Nesbo is on board as executive producer; Niclas Salomonsson are also producing along with Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner of Working Title. This is a potential franchise-starter for Paramount, with eight more Harry Hole novels waiting for adaptation.



    Here’s the synopsis for Nesbo’s The Snowman:

    Oslo in November. The first snow of the season has fallen. A boy named Jonas wakes in the night to find his mother gone. Out his window, in the cold moonlight, he sees the snowman that inexplicably appeared in the yard earlier in the day. Around its neck is his mother’s pink scarf.

    Hole suspects a link between a menacing letter he’s received and the disappearance of Jonas’s mother—and of perhaps a dozen other women, all of whom went missing on the day of a first snowfall. As his investigation deepens, something else emerges: he is becoming a pawn in an increasingly terrifying game whose rules are devised—and constantly revised—by the killer.
