Resources for September 6, 2016

Waititi, Taika. "Hunt for the Wilderpeople." The Treatment (June 29, 2016) ["In 2005, director Taika Waititi’s adaptation of the novel Wild Pork and Watercress started as a much darker piece. Revisiting the work years later, however, allowed Taika to realize that comedy indeed prevails and he took the film The Hunt for the Wilderpeople in a different direction, while paying homage to the adventurous spirit of New Zealand. Behind films like What We Do In The Shadows and Eagle vs Shark, Taika Waititi shares the importance of humor through life’s tough times and dissects an artist’s ultimate quest for immortality."]

Piketty, Thomas.  "From the Introduction to Capital in the Twenty-First Century." (Harvard UP, 2014: posted on Harvard University Press website - for an archive of resources and reports on the book visit Harvard University Press)

Kenny, Glenn. "There's a Riot Goin' On." The Current (May 1, 2014)

Drain, Heather, et al. "Celine and Julie Go Boating." The Projection Booth #277 (June 28, 2016) ["Jacques Rivette's Celine and Julie Go Boating (1974) tells a story of friendship, adventure, and magic between two women (Juliet Berto and Dominique Labourier) in Paris."]

Lachman, Edward. "Howl." American Cinematographer #22 (2010) ["Edward Lachman, ASC, talks with American Cinematographer’s Iain Stasukevich about the concepts behind visualizing the works of artists like Bob Dylan and Allen Ginsberg, particularly regarding his work on the recent film Howl."]

Sunstein, Cass. "What Would Luke Skywalker Do?" Studio 360 (June 30, 2016) ["Sunstein recently had a job advising President Obama at the White House, and he’s appeared on lists of potential candidates for the Supreme Court. Sunstein’s new book, "The World According to Star Wars," came as a shock to many people who expected him to produce yet another scholarly tome. But the book isn't really all that different from his other work — it explores social, legal and political philosophy. The revelation for Sunstein was that the "Star Wars" universe contained so many of the moral quandaries that fascinate him."]

Bucsco, Gabe, Justine Smith and Josh Spiegel. "Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind." Mousterpiece Theater (August 13, 2016) ["The film that led to the creation of Studio Ghibli, from director Hayao Miyazaki: it’s Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind. Josh and Gabe are joined by Justine Smith of Vague Visages to talk about this early Miyazaki effort, and whether or not it might be his very best film. Or is this movie not as emotionally engaging as films like Princess Mononoke or Kiki’s Delivery Service? Did this movie set the foundation or raise the bar so high nothing else could clear it?"]

Devens, Arik and Herb van der Poll. "Bob Roberts." Cinema Gadfly #22 (June 30, 2016)

Smith, Justine. "Why Criticism: Mark Cousin's 50 Week Film Course." Vague Visages (September 6, 2016)
