Kleinkram

Bei Spinetingler schreibt der Nerd of Noir über die Ken-Bruen-Verfilmung „Blitz“ mit Jason Statham in der Hauptrolle.

Vern hat den Film ebenfalls gesehen und beiden hat er gefallen.

Bei Mulholland Books hat Brian Lindenmuth eine Liste der zehn besten Noirs der letzten zehn Jahre (oder so) zusammengestellt. Daniel Woodrell und Rick DeMarinis sind dabei.

Bei CrimeMag schreibt Roland Osswald, anläßlich der deutschen Veröffentlichung von Jim-Thompson-Debüt „Jetzt und auf Erden“, über Jim Thompson und das Buch.

Dort gibt es auch ein Interview mit Thriller-Autor Jeremy Robinson.

Mal sehen, wann es dieses Q&A über „Scarface“ (das Remake) auch auf YouTube gibt. Bis dahin kann man es Crimespree Magazine ansehen.

Hier die Infos:

On Tuesday, August 23, 2011 at 8:15pm PT/11:15pm ET, Universal Studios Home Entertainment reunites the cast and filmmakers of the iconic underworld epic, SCARFACE in a special Q&A live from Los Angeles via Livestream. Stars Al Pacino, Steven Bauer, Robert Loggia, F. Murray Abraham and producer Martin Bregman will come together to celebrate the upcoming Blu-ray launch and legacy of the film that redefined the gangster genre forever and became a cultural touchstone for an entire generation.

Bei IndieWire hat man sich Gedanken über das derzeitige Action-Kino gemacht: Chaos Cinema.

Sehenswert!

Und hier gibt es eine kleine Sammlung von Filmenden, die so vom Studio gewünscht waren.

Mich hat bei der Sammlung überrascht, wie viele alte Filme aufgenommen wurden.

In der taz denkt Thomas Groh über Science-Fiction-Filme als Stimmungsbarometer nach.
