Homecoming: Betsy Heimann on Costuming Godless

Minor Spoilers

At a pivotal juncture during the Fathers & Sons episode of Godless (2017), the camera tracks into a pink ribbon tied on the back of young woman’s hair; a woman who is suffering from the onset symptoms of smallpox and unlikely to find recovery. Later in the episode we pan across dozens of freshly dug but unnamed graves each with it’s own crucifix. We don’t see the woman again, but on one of the crucifixes is tied a pink ribbon. Such is the power of even the slightest costume and accessory details in Godless, the narrative is informed by their very presence.

Costume designer for Godless was Betsy Heimann. Perhaps best known for costuming Reservoir Dogs (1992), Pulp Fiction (1994) and Almost Famous (2000), she is extremely well respected in the industry. Godless is some of Heimann’s most complete work yet. The western era in question, 1884 in Colorado, is well documented historically.

Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Star Trek’ Movie Is Gaining Pace; Will Be R-Rated

A story broke earlier this week which surprised us all – Quentin Tarantino could be making a Star Trek movie. Well, the gist of it is that the Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction filmmaker has essentially come up with a fantastic idea that has blown the socks off current Star Trek series producer J.J. Abrams, so much so that the filmmaker immediately assembled a writer’s room to get those ideas down. Well, it seems that things are moving at warp speed over in Hollywood as that writer’s room, comprised of Mark L. Smith, Lindsey Beer, and Drew Pearce, have met with Tarantino who stuck around to brainstorm ideas earlier this week. More on the Tarantino Star Trek movie below.

Film Review: ‘Bullet Head’

Film Review: ‘Bullet Head’
Good intentions sometimes come in odd packages, and while one doesn’t doubt writer-director Paul Solet’s sincerity, “Bullet Head” makes his judgment questionable — a vaguely “Reservoir Dogs”-esque crime thriller is not, it turns out, the ideal vehicle in which to plead for humane treatment of actual dogs. Even without that earnest underlying agenda, this slick but ungainly opus would be a curious animal, with its mix of present-tense suspense and (too many) comedic or sentimental flashbacks, as robbers Adrien Brody, John Malkovich and Rory Culkin kill time in a warehouse after a bungled heist.

None of the actors is at his best in the Bulgaria-shot feature, with Antonio Banderas especially thanklessly deployed as a nemesis. Add in dialogue that often labors for wit or profundity; doggy-pov shots and flashbacks; plus the fact that this appeal to canine lovers involves critters that are bloody and torn from illegal fighting matches — a sure turnoff to much of

One of the top films I’m looking forward to checking out asap is director Paul Solet’s thriller Bullet Head starring Adrien Brody, Antonio Banderas, and John Malkovich.

The Next Quentin Tarantino Film Has A Release Date

Quentin Tarantino’s next film has finally got a released date. The Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction helmer’s ninth movie has yet to get an official title, but the movie is set in Los Angeles in the 1960s and is said to have a very Pulp Fiction feel to it.

Set in Los Angeles in the summer of 1969, Tarantino’s upcoming movie, according to a source who read the script, focuses on a male TV actor who’s had one hit series and his looking for a way to get into the film business. His sidekick—who’s also his stunt double—is looking for the same thing. The horrific murder of Sharon Tate and four of her friends by Charles Manson’s cult of followers serves as a backdrop to the main story.

The film is said to have a production budget of close to $100 million, and will

Blu-ray Review – Animal Factory (2000)

Animal Factory, 2000.

Directed by Steve Buscemi.

Starring Willem Dafoe, Edward Furlong, Danny Trejo, Mickey Rourke, Tom Arnold, Mark Boone Junior, Edward Bunker, John Heard, and Steve Buscemi.

Synopsis:

A privileged young man is sent to prison for drug dealing and falls under the wing of a lifer who takes a shine to him.

Sometimes the planets are in alignment, the right cards are drawn from the deck and there is a film that gets made with what seems to be the perfect collaboration of cast and crew that you know is going to produce something worthy of your time, and in 2000 Steve Buscemi (Reservoir Dogs/Con Air) directed Animal Factory, his second full-length feature. But what makes Animal Factory a little different from a lot of other prison dramas is that it was written by Edward Bunker, an ex-con-turned-actor (he played Mr. Blue in Reservoir Dogs and also pops up

Quentin Tarantino Explains Why He Still Doesn’t Have a Netflix Account (Video)
You can watch Quentin Tarantino’s films on Netflix, but the director himself would probably prefer that you rent his films from your local video store… if you still have one. In an interview clip posted on YouTube, the cinephile and Oscar-winning filmmaker said he doesn’t use the popular streaming service and laments the decline of video rental stores. Tarantino himself worked at a video store in Manhattan Beach before breaking into Hollywood with his first film, “Reservoir Dogs,” and he said that video stores, much like record stores, encourage customers to peruse through titles and perhaps discover something they never thought.

10 Things About Pulp Fiction You Never Knew

10 Things About Pulp Fiction You Never Knew
It's a certified cinema classic and one of the most quotable movies ever. Two years after Reservoir Dogs, video store clerk turned auteur Quentin Tarantino turned out another masterpiece in Pulp Fiction, the 1994 movie that rescued John Travolta from the pop culture waste bin via a now iconic performance, matched in creative and artistic firepower by Uma Thurman, Bruce Willis, Tim Roth, Harvey Keitel, Christopher Walken, Eric Stoltz, Rosanna Arquette, Amanda Plummer, Ving Rhames, and of course, Samuel L. Jackson as the soul searching hit man Jules. Pulp Fiction still regularly plays in midnight showings at the writer/director's own New Beverly Cinema. Today we look at 10 things you never knew about Pulp Fiction.

Matt Dillon was almost Butch.

Originally Quentin Tarantino conceived of the "palooka" pugilist played by Bruce Willis as a younger up and coming boxer. He envisioned Matt Dillon in the role. But after the actor reportedly took too long to decide,

IFP’s Gotham Awards Give Indie Films a Boost

IFP’s Gotham Awards Give Indie Films a Boost
On Sept. 30, 1991, John Turturro and the late Jonathan Demme were the first of seven New Yorkers to garner a Gotham Award. Trophies were handed out at the Roseland Ballroom without much fanfare. The celebratory dinner, a fundraiser for the Independent Filmmaker Project, was a small, low-key, quirky event that didn’t draw mainstream media.

“It didn’t have that big huge red carpet thing that happens nowadays,” says former Ifp exec director Catherine Tait, who oversaw the creation of the Gotham Awards. “It was really intimate because the interest in indie filmmaking was not very heightened at the time.”

Cut to the same awards show at the same venue four years later. “Reservoir Dogs,” “Kids” and “Hoop Dreams” were officially part of the zeitgeist and Madonna was posing for photographers along with fellow Gotham Award guests Ted Turner and Jane Fonda. The Gotham Awards were officially a hot ticket.

What Quentin Tarantino's New Movie Is Really About

What Quentin Tarantino's New Movie Is Really About
Sony won the bidding war for Quentin Tarantino's new Movie, which will be his ninth directorial feature. Now some new details regarding the plot have been revealed. It was announced earlier this month that the director was out holding meetings to pitch the untitled 9th movie, which will take place in 1969 with the Manson Family murders as the backdrop. It had been reported earlier that the movie was going to exclusively be about Charles Manson and the story of the 2-night brutal killing spree that he commanded his "family" to commit, but Tarantino recently revealed that to be false and instead said the movie was only taking place in 1969.

Vanity Fair reports that a source who was trying out for the movie has read the script and it does include the recently deceased Charles Manson and the murders that he ordered, but as a background element tied together by Sharon Tate,

Quentin Tarantino’s Latest Finds A Home At Sony; Leonardo DiCaprio, Margot Robbie And Tom Cruise Circling

It’s official: Sony Pictures has won the race to finance and distribute Quentin Tarantino‘s next movie.

Known under the rather apt working title ‘#9’, the 1960s period drama will be Tarantino’s ninth feature film, continuing a legacy that began when Reservoir Dogs launched him onto Hollywood’s radar back in ’92. It’ll also be the first to launch since the ongoing Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment scandal, hence the change in personnel.

Indeed, Deadline’s report makes mention of a bidding war for #9, after every studio – Disney notwithstanding – in Tinsel Town expressed an interest in Quentin Tarantino’s latest venture. But the die has been cast: Sony Pictures has acquired worldwide rights for an unknown price tag, and it’s understood Tarantino is lining up a suitably stellar cast for what will be another R-rated feature.

According to Deadline’s scoop, the illustrious filmmaker has approached Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt

A new Quentin Tarantino movie is always much-hyped affair, but his mysterious new film is shaping up to be one of the most interesting projects of his career. The filmmaker has famously worked with Harvey Weinstein's production companies (be it Miramax or The Weinstein Co.) ever since Weinstein’s Miramax snatched up Reservoir Dogs at the Sundance Film Festival, but in the wake of the outpouring of allegations against the Hollywood mega-producer and the subsequent financial turmoil of his company, Tarantino has been shopping around his script to every major studio in town.

Animal Factory Starring Willem Dafoe on Blu-ray November 28th From Arrow Video

Animal Factory starring Willem Dafoe will be available on Blu-ray November 28th From Arrow Video

Troubled youth Ron Decker (Edward Furlong, American History X) is sentenced to a ten-year stint in the notorious San Quentin State Prison for a drug-dealing conviction. Inexperienced in the ways of prison life, he’s taken under the wing of Earl Copen (Willem Dafoe, To Live and Die in La), an experienced con with the entire prison in the palm of his hand – inmates and guards alike. But as Ron grows increasingly cocky in his privileged role as Earl’s confidant, is he in danger of biting off more than he can chew with some of the jail’s more volatile inhabitants?

Based on the semi-autobiographical novel of the same name by Eddie Bunker (Reservoir Dogs), Animal Factory was Steve Buscemi (Lonesome Jim, Interview)’s second stint in the director’s chair and sees him marshaling a formidable ensemble cast,

‘Family Guy’: The Best Parodies of Quentin Tarantino, Wes Anderson, and Michael Bay in ‘Three Directors’ Episode
[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “Family Guy” Season 16, Episode 5, “Three Directors.”]

At the end of three back-to-back-to-back parodies of Quentin Tarantino, Wes Anderson, and Michael Bay’s respective works, Peter Griffin asks Lois “which director thing was your favorite?” “Honestly, I didn’t care for the episode,” she says, right before the credits end, production titles pop up, and another episode of “Family Guy” fades into the ether with the nearly 300 others.

And if we’re being honest, we’re with Lois. “Three Directors” is introduced by Peter, speaking straight to camera, explaining that they decided to “ask” three Hollywood directors to tell their version of the same story: Peter gets fired.
