Edward Berger recreates the best-selling epic from a German perspective for the first time.

When All Quiet on the Western Front by author Erich Maria Remarque was first published in Germany in 1929, it was an immediate worldwide sensation. The story of World War I from the perspective of young German soldier Paul Bäumer, who, along with a group of classmates, volunteers to join the army and quickly finds himself dealing with the grim realities of trench warfare, became the year’s best-selling novel in America and inspired a movie adaptation that went on to…

Eddie Redmayne Transforms in the Good Nurse

When an audience first spies a beloved actor in a truly transformative role, it often can take a beat to move past the sense of familiarity and see only this new character. With Eddie Redmayne, it’s instantaneous. His chameleon-like artistry is evidenced in his Oscar-winning portrayal of physicist Stephen Hawking, who lived with A.L.S. for more than 50 years, in 2014’s The Theory of Everything. A second Oscar nomination followed a year later for The Danish Girl, in which he…

New Body Rhumba Closes White Noise

ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT : Anatomy of a War Film

When Francis Ford Coppola appeared before the press in Cannes in 1979 to report about Apocalypse Now, he said that the entire team had become increasingly insane as production progressed. He said that it was not a film about Vietnam; it was Vietnam. Again and again, filmmakers speak about their work on war films and say it was as if they were actually at war when filming the movies. They felt like generals who commanded an entire army and went…

Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio: A Timeless Tale Told Anew

Although Gris Grimly’s rendering of the Pinocchio character in the 2002 book he helped illustrate initially prompted Guillermo del Toro to mount his own adaptation of the fairy tale, the filmmaker always knew he would need to modify the design to bring the puppet to three-dimensional life.
