The Tales of Hoffmann

The Tales of Hoffmann

Directed by Emeric Pressburger and Michael Powell

UK, 1951

Cornerhouse, 29 March 2015

This is an extraordinary film still, being chockfull of elegant, sensual dancing; myriad deliciously decadent scenes and situations; as well as some fraught moments where evil – luxuriant vice – seems to triumph. 222 more words

The Red Shoes is an Incredible Film with Feminist Insight

I went to a special event showing of The Red Shoes in reel to reel 35 mm film format at an old theater on the weekend. 544 more words

Blu-ray review: The Tales of Hoffman

Starring: Moria Shearer, Robert Helpmann, Frederick Ashton
Director: Powell and Pressburger

Powell and Pressburger’s sumptuous Technicolor adaptation of Offenbach’s operetta – in which the poet hero chases various unattainable women, to little avail – has some brilliant moments, as when Frederick Ashton’s Cochenille unrolls a carpet which reveals a trompe l’oeil staircase, or, for that matter, whenever Moira Shearer is on screen. 330 more words

Review

The Red Shoes (1948) (10/10)

The Red Shoes is probably one of the prettiest films ever made. Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger’s films are well written, well directed, well casted/acted and so darn pleasing to the eye. 200 more words
