General | Latest Info

David Byrne has long been master of perfect designed Worlds. The 1984 concert Film Stop Making Sense, with his band Talking Heads, captures how carefully he stag his shows, bringing in band members one by one to emphasize how each contributes to the harmonies of the song. Byrnes latest tour, American Utopia, was documented by Spike Lee in the Film of same name, due out October 17 on HBO. In it, Byrne again tries to construct a new musical Universe, making jolly music and dancing in lockstep with shoeless artists in natty Gray suits. But as the film title suggests, he wanted to create a better world beyond the concert venue too. American Utopia was the opening-Night feature at this month's Toronto International Film Festival, which kicks off the fall Movie season every year with big premieres and awards-friendly projects. Thanks to the coronavirus and general hibernation of industry, TIFF screened just 50 new films this year. But even in its compact form, Festival offers a preview of what moviegoers can expect in the next few months as Hollywood navigates pandemic. Give that the United States is in the midst of a fraught election season, it is unsurprising that some of the most compelling new films confront idealistic notions of Americaand how promises of progress and justice are so often blunt by grim realities of racism, poverty, and polarization. This tension is at the heart of American Utopia, as is Byrnes ' distress over our disconnected modern world. Throughout the show, he champions the joys of collaboration and communality. At one point, he notes that most of the performers are immigrants. At another, he decry Americas low voting numbers and informs audience members that they can register to vote on-site once the concert is over. The film builds to the cover of Janelle Monaes protest song Hell You Talmbout, during which performers chant names of Black people who were killed by police or die in their custody, including Freddie Gray and Sandra Bland; Lees camera cuts away from the theater and shows victims loving ones holding up photographs Of those They lose. Through each beautifully choreograph song, Byrne demonstrates the thrill of watching people perform in sync. But he tempers that glee with stark reminders of how much remains broken outside of his theatrical space, and how much work remains to be doneby others and by himself. The Films premiere came shortly after Byrne apologized on Twitter for the newly resurfaced clip of him appearing in blackface in a 1984 video: Like I said at the end of our Broadway show American Utopia, I need to change too and I believe I have changed since then. In an interview with Variety, he addrest responsibility he has as an artist talking about racial justice to own up to his mistakes. If I am going to talk about this stuff, I ca talk about giving advice to other people if I ca do it myself, Byrne say.

Early history

On December 28 1895, world first commercial movie screening took place at the Grand Cafe in Paris. The film was made by Louis and Auguste Lumiere, two French brothers who developed a camera-Projector called Cinematographe. Lumiere brothers unveil their invention to the public in March 1895 with brief film showing workers leaving Lumiere factory. On December 28, entrepreneurial siblings screen a series of short scenes from everyday French Life and charge admission for the first time. Movie technology has its roots in the early 1830s, when Joseph Plateau of Belgium and Simon Stampfer of Austria simultaneously developed a device called the phenakistoscope, which incorporated spinning disc with slots Through which series of drawings could be view, creating the effect of a single moving image. The Phenakistoscope, considered a precursor of modern motion pictures, was followed by decades of advances and, in 1890, Thomas Edison and his assistant William Dickson developed the first Motion-Picture camera, called the Kinetograph. Next year, 1891, Edison invented the Kinetoscope, machine with a peephole viewer that allows one person to watch Strip of Film as it moves past light. In 1894, Antoine Lumiere, father of Auguste and Louis, saw a demonstration of Edisons Kinetoscope. The elder Lumiere was impressed, but reportedly told his sons, who run a successful photographic plate factory in Lyon, France, that they could come up with something better. Louis Lumieres Cinematographe, which was patented in 1895, was a combination movie camera and a projector that could display moving images on screen for the audience. Cinematographe was also smaller, lighter and uses less film than Edisons technology. Lumieres opened theaters in 1896 to show their work and send crews of cameramen around the world to screen films and shoot new material. In America, film industry quickly took off. In 1896, Vitascope Hall, believed to be the first theater in the US devoted to showing movies, opened in New Orleans. In 1909, New York Times published its first film review, in 1911 the First Hollywood Film studio opened and in 1914, Charlie Chaplin made his big-screen debut. In addition to Cinematographe, Lumieres also developed the first practical color photography process, Autochrome plate, which debuted in 1907.

Peak years

Up to the beginning of 1968, Movie 4 had largely played second fiddle to WCBS's Early Show. However, in the space of two months in early 1968, the premiere of what became known as 4: 30 Movie on WABC-TV in January, followed by cancellation of weekday airings of Early Show on WCBS-TV and its replacement with the Mike Douglas Show in March. While the series had some up-and-down moments afterwards, these moves eventually consigned Movie 4 to also-ran status, and the show's ratings began to decline. To make matters worse, WNBC-TV's own ratings plunged to last place among City's network O & O's in the early 1970s, dragging Movie 4 down with it. This was despite a series of promotional advertisements for Movie 4 published in TV Guide and Daily News with illustrations by Robert Grossman, and later caricatures of individual films' stars by Al Hirschfeld, as ran during 1972. In addition, in the show's final years, WNBC's inventory of films was becoming alarmingly low, due to their loss of rights to movies that wound up on WCBS-TV, WNEW-TV, WOR-TV and, ironically enough, WABC-TV. The cancellation of Movie 4 was announced by WNBC-TV on December 12 1973, as part of its plans to expand two-hour newscast that would debut on April 29 1974 as NewsCenter4. The Last Movie 4, repeat of Time Machine, was aired on April 26 1974. The resulting half-hour void left by the cancellation of Movie 4 was filled by reruns of Room 222, whose run on ABC had ended only a few months earlier. Movie 4' s demise leaves WABC-TV as the only network O & O to have an afternoon Movie Show. End also preceded by nearly two years introduction of Home videocassette recorders, and by several more years beginning of growth of cable television.

By 1961, weekend movies begin on both nights at 11: 15 pm in 1963, WNBC-TV begin offering Late-Night weeknight Movie program that would come to be call Great Great Show. As years go on, frequency of Movie 4' s airings begins to be gradually reduce. In October 1960, late Saturday afternoon editions were discontinue. The program's Sunday Night airings ended on September 23 1962, and were replaced the next week by reruns of Desilu Playhouse. From December 1962 to April 1963, weekday airings were temporarily canceled by WNBC due to the 1962 New York City newspaper strike, while special newscasts ran in their place; strike ultimately led to the creation of a 30-minute newscast, Pressman-Ryan Report, anchored by Gabe Pressman and Bill Ryan. Saturday night airings of Movie 4 came to an end on January 2 1965; following week, weekend reruns of Tonight Show took their place. Therefore, Movie 4 generally airs on weekdays only. After WNBC-TV's early-Evening local newscast was expanded from 30 minutes to Hour on May 10 1965, Movie 4 moved to its final time slot of 4: 30 to 6 pm, where it remain for the rest of its run.

Postscript and aftermath

Part of what makes Whiplash so interesting is the uneasiness it impart. It is inspiring to watch young jazz drummer Andrew push himself to new heights, but also disturbing to see the path he takes to get there. Ultimately, were left to wonder if all the abuse he suffered at the hands of Fletcher was worth it. And while all viewers will have to determine that for themselves, writer-Director Damien Chazelle, for one, has a pretty clear idea of what will happen next. Hit jump to read Chazelles comments on Whiplash ending. If you saw Whiplash, youll recall the final scene in which Fletcher deliberately sabotages Andrews ' fledgling career by giving him the wrong music for the concert. Instead of taking that affront lying down, however, Andrew turned it into an opportunity, taking the lead and showing off his talents. Eventually, Fletcher came around and started helping him. It was a thrilling moment, and a big victory for our protagonist. However, Chazelle says he doesnt necessarily see a happy end for Andrew after that. Heres snippet from his conversation with Screen Crush: Chazelle is clearly joking about postscript and post-credits funeral scene, but he seems to be serious about dark ending. It was a bit startling since his movie went out on a high note, and since were more or less condition to expect happy endings from films like this. On the other hand, though, such an unhappy development would fit with Chazelles ' clear-eyed approach. Unlike lot of other underdog-make-good stories, Whiplash is unflinching about sacrifices Andrew makes to get to the top, and not at all comfortable with tradeoff. It absolutely seems plausible that hed crash and burn at a young age. Do you like Chazelles imagine Whiplash epilogue, or do you think it go too dark?

Plot

I can't Let You Throw Yourself Away, sings Randy Newman, Pixar's bard, in montage from Toy Story 4. The song's title is aimed at Woody, friend to his original owner, Andy, and later to Bonnie, five-year old who inherits Andy's toys at the end of Toy Story 3 and is show refining her own playtime rituals that don't always include Woody. Secondarily, song is officially aimed at the new character, Forky, plastic spork with popsicle-stick feet and pipe cleaner arms, created by Bonnie with material supplied by Woody during orientation day at kindergarten. Typical of toy Story, series where inanimate objects don't merely have personalities but existential crises, Forky keeps breaking away from Bonnie and Woody and trying to hurl himself into the nearest trash receptacle. This is not a comment on his own feelings of worthiness. But expression of the fact that Forky is, after all, utensil, and feels most comfortable in trash, secure in knowledge that he fulfil his purpose. But I can't Let You Throw Yourself Away also expresses the audience's feelings for this beloved series, which has continued over nearly quarter century, producing four installments that run the gamut from excellent to perfect. We don't want the Story of Toy Story to end, but we also don't want it to become a plaything taken down from the shelf out of obligation rather than excitement. If the makers of Toy Story 4 share these anxieties, they've merge them into the plot of this movie. Among other things, it's about devoted playmate's fear that he's become obsolete, boring, not special anymore, and otherwise incapable of holding attention to child. But, as old toy commercials used to promise: that's not all! Although the first part of the movie concentrates on the relationship between Woody and Forky, rest of Toy Story 4 distributes its attention democratically among playthings that we know from before, including Tim Allen's Buzz Lightyear and Joan Cusack's Cowgirl Jesse, and new toys that we meet during the family's week-long Winnebago road trip. The latter include Keegan Michael-Key and Jordan Peele as Ducky and Bunny, wisecracking plush collectibles that Buzz meets at fairground ball-toss; Keanu Reeve as Duke Caboom, Evel Knievel-style motorcycle rider who describes himself as the greatest stuntman in Canada; and Christina Hendricks as Gabby Gabby, 1950s-era talking doll whose voice box is break, and spend her days ruling desolate kingdom of unclaimed toys in antique shop. As the story unfolds, we're treated to all of the elements that we've come to expect, including a mission to rescue a missing or kidnapped toy, climactic action sequence reuniting separate characters, and a moment where toy hilariously breaks rules against letting humans know they're alive.

Violent Content

Our study documents high exposure among young adolescents to extremely violent movies, some of which are seen by almost half of 10-to 14-year-olds in the United States. This exposure occurs despite clear labeling that these movies were not intended for young adolescents, and these movies were intentionally chosen to represent the most violent of popular movies released in the United States by requiring consensus across censor boards. A body of research documenting a link between exposure to media violence and increases in violent thoughts, emotions, and behavior 3 6 16 and even, perhaps, to increases in permissive attitudes toward other risk behaviors 9 offers compelling reason to restrict such exposure. We not only find a high rate of exposure overall but also identify several independent risk factors for exposure. Boys, minorities, those with low socioeconomic status, and those with poor school performance are all more likely to see extremely violent movies. There is strong relation between exposure and race, with black adolescents at particularly high risk for exposure. This is consistent with previous work that demonstrates higher exposure to movies, television, and radio among black adolescents than among white adolescents. 17 However, these effects hold even when controlling for total number of movies seen and, therefore, do not simply reflect risk factors for watching movies in general. Although more research needs to be performed to investigate causes and consequences of these high rates of exposure to violent movies, given that many of these risk factors for exposure mirror risk factors for violent behavior, 18 it is important to examine the role that movie exposure plays in encouraging violence in youth. Although all mechanisms of connection between exposure and behavior are not yet understood, it is clear that parents of adolescents should be aware of negative consequences of this exposure and encourage them to limit it. However, many aspects of the modern media environment work against adequate parental oversight. With the advent of DVDs, Movie channels, pay-per-view channels, and even Web-base Movie downloads, adolescents have unprecedented access to adult media. Director's cuts on DVDs are not subject to the ratings process and often include additional violent material that was edited out of theatrically released version. These movies are often viewed in American homes, in which approximately two thirds of adolescents have a television and more than half have a VCR or DVD player in their bedroom, 19 which makes parental oversight difficult. In addition, extremely violent films are marketed on Television during programming that is seen by children and adolescents, which raises awareness of these films and piques interest. 20 Even among adolescents who report that their parents never let them watch R-rat movies, 22. 6% report having seen at least 1 of these movies on their list. These features of the media environment represent a significant challenge to parents who are interested in restricting their adolescents' exposure. Furthermore, parents may not be aware of the extremely graphic nature of these films and high rates of exposure among young adolescents.
