“Shut up and deal...” #bestmovielineever is trending, what’re some of yours?
Released on this day in 1992: Clint Eastwood's UNFORGIVEN. As a film concerned with myth-making, it's appropriate that myths surround the making of the movie itself: that Eastwood allegedly waited on the script until he was the perfect age to play William Munny, an aging outlaw who strays from the peaceful path for one last violent job. A meditation on violence, masculinity, and the West, it's a transformative film that gets better with age. #NBRtop10
In honor of Toni Morrison, we’re revisiting the 1998 adaptation of her masterwork, BELOVED. Directed by Jonathan Demme, and starring Oprah Winfrey, Danny Glover, and Thandie Newton, the film failed to recoup at the box office, but has since been reexamined and praises as a masterful film with standout performances that hews closely to the spirit of the novel.
Remembering documentary filmmaker D.A. Pennebaker, who passed away last Thursday at the age of 94. A pioneer of the "Direct Cinema" approach, his films (particularly set in the worlds of music and politics following cultural icons like James Carville and Bob Dylan) pushes the bounds of what documentary could be.

With Scorsese's freshly-unveiled #TheIrishman trailer featuring a digitally de-aged Robert De Niro, and Ang Lee's upcoming #GeminiMan featuring a de-aged Will Smith, we've got de-aging on the brain... What's everyone's stance on using CGI to de-age an actor? Into it? Afraid of it? Curious to hear everyone's thoughts!

Remembering the great English actor Charles Laughton, born 120 years ago on this day. He was unforgettable in films like RUGGLES OF RED GAP, MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY, and JAMAICA INN. His only film as director was the game-changing THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTER, which Cahiers du Cinema once heralded as the second greatest film of all time after CITIZEN KANE.

"You know what happens to nosey fellas? They lose their noses." Released on this day in 1974: Roman Polanski's game-changing neo-noir mystery CHINATOWN. With an Oscar-winning script by Robert Towne, superstar producer Robert Evans, and a cast comprised of Jack Nicholson, Faye Dunaway, and a monstrous John Huston, #Chinatown is an unforgettable tale of power, greed, and corruption — a 70s film about the 30s that feels shockingly contemporary in the modern era. #NBRtop10
And today we celebrate Pauline Kael on what would've been her 100th birthday. With her 20+ year tenure at the @newyorkermag , Kael established herself as one of the most bold & influential critics in the New Hollywood era, never fearing to wield a contrary opinion to her peers. On Kael, Ebert wrote, "With her it was all personal... She wrote about her immediate experience, about what she felt." #PaulineKael #RogerEbert #film #cinema #criticism
Remembering #RogerEbert on his birthday... To one of the most iconic film critics, whose “At The Movies” with Gene Siskel influenced future generations of cinephiles, we salute you with both thumbs 👍🏽👍🏽
❤️ Sylvia Miles #forevermood #SylviaMiles #MidnightCowboy #NBRtop10
Premiered on this day in the UK in 1943: Powell & Pressburger's THE LIFE AND DEATH OF COLONEL BLIMP. While not an epic in the traditional sense, BLIMP is a masterfully-told tale of love, loss, and growing old against the backdrop of three historic wars. Shot in stunning 3-strip Technicolor, and with knock-out performances by Roger Livesay, Anton Walbrook, and Deborah Kerr (in 3 different parts!), BLIMP is a moving must-see even 76 years later. #NBRtop10
TFW the weekend rolls around and everyone’s trying to make plans but you’re feeling indecisive #ThroughAGlassDarkly #IngmarBergman #fomo #fridayfeeling

Released on this day in '88: BIG, directed by the late Penny Marshall. It's hard to think of the "wish fullfilment" sub-genre without first thinking of BIG. With its frequently hilarious script and standout, Oscar-nominated performance by Tom Hanks, it's a comedy that's inspired many films and filmmakers since. #NBRtop10
Remembering the late French New Wave pioneer Agnès Varda today, on what would have been her 91st birthday.

When you wake up and realize IT’S MONDAY!! What did everyone watch this weekend?? #TheBirdcage
Lars Von Trier's beautiful & devastating BREAKING THE WAVES premiered at #Cannes on this weekend in 1996. Set in an ultra-conservative religious community in rural Scotland, the film follows Bess (masterfully performed by Emily Watson in her feature debut), a naïve young woman whose faith is tested when her new husband is paralyzed in a work accident. Stunningly lensed by the late Robby Müller, what results is a thoughtful & emotionally-harrowing exploration of sex, spirituality, and conservatism. #NBRtop10
With the annual #Cannes Film Festival well underway, we’re digging up photos of the very first Cannes in 1946, which included Competition screenings of BRIEF ENCOUNTER, Jean Cocteau’s BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, NOTORIOUS, ROME OPEN CITY, and a performance by Edith Piaf!
Released in this day in 1958: Vincente Minnelli’s GIGI, a rollicking, robust musical featuring music by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe and shot in vibrant Metrocolor. #NBRtop10

"Oh my God, that's the saddest movie ever made. It would make a stone cry." — Orson Welles on MAKE WAY FOR TOMORROW. Released on this day in 1937: Leo McCarey's under-seen tragic masterpiece MAKE WAY FOR TOMORROW, which follows the story of an elderly couple who lose their home to foreclosure and attempt to seek refuge among their five children. Though not particularly well-received upon release, it inspired a generation of filmmakers including the great Yasujiro Ozu, who used it as a template for his own masterwork, TOKYO STORY. #NBRtop10
A very happy birthday to the late #SaulBass, title & graphic designer who created iconic work for filmmakers such as Alfred Hitchcock, Billy Wilder, Otto Preminger, Martin Scorsese, and more.

This #MayDay, we're revisiting 1979's NORMA RAE. Directed by Martin Ritt and starring the legendary Sally Field, the film dramatizes a young North Carolina textile worker's efforts to unionize her fellow factory workers. It's both a charming showcase for the prodigiously talented Field, and an enthralling depiction of workers fighting for their rights. The film garnered Field the NBR Award for Best Actress, and an Oscar too. #NBRawards
