Apocalypse Now: Final Cut Review

Some movies demand to be seen on the big screen. I’m thinking of 2001: A Space Odyssey, Lawrence of Arabia, Andrei Rublev and yes, Apocalypse Now. And in the case of Francis Ford Coppola’s 1979 masterpiece, now you can do just that.

Playing in AMC theaters everywhere, the latest cut of the Vietnam War story can now be cherished in IMAX with the latest in Dolby Atmos sound. Just when you thought this nightmare couldn’t seem any more real, Apocalypse Now: Final Cut comes along to blow your mind in a whole new way.

By this point, most of you will know how it opens. Martin Sheen’s Captain Willard is laying in bed; his chest hair as dense as the Vietnam jungle. Staring at the fan spinning above him, we hear the sound of helicopter wings playing over The Rolling Stones’ “This is the End.” Only, it’s the beginning.

From ‘Schindler’s List’ to ‘A Hidden Life,’ the Unsung Hero of Awards-Season Trailers Is Mark Woollen

If you have an easy movie, the ones where the trailers practically edit themselves, that probably isn’t a Mark Woollen trailer. Woollen is the guy they call when the movies are more idiosyncratic, or their creators are, or both; the ones where the three-act structure may not be visible to the naked eye, or it’s hard to explain exactly what they’re about, but damn if they don’t make you feel something. But how can you see feelings, and in two minutes or less? What kind of marketing is that?

“I don’t know what marketing is,” said Woollen from the Santa Monica offices of Mark Woollen & Associates, where he employs a staff of 30. “I’m trying to represent the film. Filmmakers come to us in a vulnerable place. Sometimes we’re the first eyes seeing the first rough cut of film they’ve been working on for years.

The Coen Brothers' 10 Best Movies, According To Rotten Tomatoes

If there’s one thing the Coen brothers are great at, it’s juxtaposition. And that’s not just juxtaposition within their films – like cutting from a tense break-in scene to a kick in the nuts in their directorial debut Blood Simple – it’s juxtaposition on their filmography as a whole. They’ll go from a harrowing Oscar-winning drama like Fargo to a zany comedy like The Big Lebowski, or they’ll go from a harrowing Oscar-winning drama like No Country for Old Men to a zany comedy like Burn After Reading. And their movies are consistently impeccable.

The Big Lebowski spinoff The Jesus Rolls set for 2020 release

The Big Lebowski spinoff The Jesus Rolls set for 2020 release
If you cast your mind back a few years, you may recall that John Turturro started shooting a movie entitled Going Places, a loose remake of the 1974 French film Les Valseuses, which was subsequently revealed to be a spinoff from The Big Lebowski, with Turturro returning to the role of Jesus Quintana.

Well, it seems the film is finally set to see the light of day, with Deadline reporting that Screen Media has snapped up the rights to the movie – now titled The Jesus Rolls – with plans to release it early in the New Year.

Directed by Turturro (with the blessing of – but no involvement from – The Big Lebowski directors Joel and Ethan Coen), The Jesus Rolls also features a cast that includes Bobby Cannavale, Audrey Tautou, Jon Hamm, Susan Sarandon and Pete Davidson. A synopsis for the film, first revealed back in 2016, reads:

Why We Don’t Think “The Jesus Rolls” Is Going to Fare Well

Just from the look of things it doesn’t really feel that The Jesus Rolls is going to be able to do all that well in comparison to The Big Lebowski, the movie that it’s spawned from. Spawned is actually a good word since Jesus Quintana is the kind of character that doesn’t feel like he deserves much of a chance to be seen as a decent person considering that he’s kind of an outcast and very proud to be that way. John Turturro has had a lot of success in his career but this time it almost feels as though

While it was big news when it was announced, that was way back in the summer of 2016, a full three years ago. Since then, there have been little bits and pieces, but for the most part, news has been quiet about the film, formerly known as “Going Places.” But now, thanks to Screen Media, the film, now called “The Jesus Rolls,” has a distribution deal and fans can finally learn when they might get to see the ‘Lebowski’ spin-off.

10 Quirky Comedies To Watch If You Like The Big Lebowski

The Coen brothers’ The Big Lebowski wasn’t overly popular when it was first released in the late ‘90s – especially because it was the duo’s follow-up to their chilly Oscar-winning masterpiece Fargo and, when audiences were expecting another Fargo, the Coens gave them a screwball stoner comedy – but it has since developed a cult following.

The problem with the movie is that it has a style that is so unique, there are hardly any movies like it. But there are movies with a sense of humor that’s just as quirky – if not identical to Lebowski’s own sensibility – that’ll tickle your ribs in the same way. Here are 10 Quirky Comedies To Watch If You Like The Big Lebowski.
