Also new this month: a black-and-white, pin-curled Reese Witherspoon in Pleasantville, a very aloof, naked Gwyneth Paltrow in the 1998 modernization of Great Expectations, and 16-year-old Molly Ringwald in Sixteen Candles .

  6. Lubezki achieves the extraordinary long shotRead the original story w/Photo

    Apr 20, 2016 | The Japan Times

    At this year's Oscars, while everyone was fuming about the academy's lack of diversity, few bothered to notice an incredible achievement: Mexican cameraman Emmanuel Lubezki, also known by his nickname "Chivo," became the first person ever to win three Oscars in a row for Best Cinematography. Lubezki was an Oscar nominee for Tim Burton's "Sleepy Hollow" way back in 2000, but it was probably the 2001 road movie "Y Tu Mama Tambien" - made with his film-school buddy, director Alfonso Cuaron, largely in reaction to the Hollywood ways of working that chafed against them in making "Great Expectations" - that he began to come into his own.

  10. Bollywood's 'Fitoor' can't live up to 'Great Expectations'Read the original story w/Photo

    Feb 12, 2016 | Examiner.com

    It's admittedly "based on Great Expectations ," but after seeing Bollywood director Abhishek Kapoor's Fitoor , which opens today, you'll need to hurry up and rewatch David Lean's classic version with Alec Guinness to get the sight of the beautifully filmed and scored but otherwise poorly realized effort out of your mind. Unlike Guinness's Pip, Aditya Roy Kapur's Noor is solemn and self-destructive throughout, and though he's a hugely successful artist in Fitoor 's contemporary Kashmir setting, he offers nothing for the ravishing Katrina Kaif , Fitoor 's Firdaus .
