Hi all ... I joined this community for the sole purpose of linking a bunch of articles on Children of Men to people who may actually get some use/enjoyment out of them.

Anyway, apologies if some are really old-hat. Everyone has probably seen J Hoberman's rave, but maybe not the appreciation of the 2006 movie year in long takes from another Village Voice critic, Jim Ridley: "The astonishing single takes in Children of Men — particularly one sustained shot that follows Clive Owen’s cynic-turned-savior high and low through the rubble of an urban war zone — seem likely to tickle movie geeks’ taste buds. But they never become, in the cautionary words of Cuarón’s cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki, “an Olympics of long takes.” In blocks of real time, they convey, as movies rarely do, the sense of existing in a nightmare that can’t be blinked away."

For Pink Floyd fans out there, there's a reference to the album "Animals" in the resent "Children of Men trailer" (see post below). If you look at the screenshot there is a giant pig flying above Battersea Power Station. Funny :)

Watched "The Omen" remake yesterday and (surprise! suprise!) it was an AMAZING movie.I really hoped it to be good, but not THAT good. So fa r this is my #1 film of 2006, but you know I'd like "Children of Men" to take its place ;)

New project for Cuaron... as a producer [May. 26th, 2006|11:59 pm]

Guillermo del Toro and Alfonso Cuaron are teaming together to adapt Roald Dahl's 1973 book "The Witches" for Warner Bros.

Cuaron's involvement will be strictly producer while Del Toro will be directing from his own script.

Story:
This Roald Dahl classic tells the scary, funny and imaginative tale of a seven-year-old boy who has a run-in with some real-life witches! "In fairy tales witches always wear silly black hats and black cloaks and they ride on broomsticks. But this is not a fairy tale. This is about REAL WITCHES. REAL WITCHES dress in ordinary clothes and look very much like ordinary women. They live in ordinary houses and they work in ordinary jobs. That is why they are so hard to catch." Witches, as our hero learns, hate children. With the help of a friend and his somewhat-magical grandmother, our hero tries to expose the witches before they dispose of him.

Cuaron spoke of his relationship with Del Toro and it seems the two have quite the partnership, "I wouldn't do anything without showing it to Guillermo and I think that's vice-versa."
