Christopher Robin (Marc Forster, 2018)

Heffalumps and Woozles take centre stage for Episode 60 of the podcast, as Chris and Alex take a trip deep into Hundred Acre Wood to confront Christopher Robin (Marc Forster, 2018) (not to be confused with the earlier A.A. Milne biography Goodbye Christopher Robin [Simon Curtis, 2017]…), and its pleasures of nostalgia. For this latest Listeners’ Choice, they discuss the role of illustration and illusionism in relation to Disney’s earlier Winnie the Pooh animated adaptations; how imagination and impossibility manages the film’s treatment of childhood fantasies, and the extent to which this is mirrored in elements of Christopher Robin’s digital/analogue production; the politics of niceness and the film’s gestures to a Trump-era “nicecore” cinema that delights in kindness and the intrinsic value of ‘being good’; the construction of a malleable, fluid virtual urban space to form bricolage architecture (particularly in its CG portrayal of postwar London); what Christopher Robin has to say about coming back to family, returning home, and simply seeing the world differently; and how doing nothing often leads to the very best kind of something.

Episode 104: Marc Forster On The Music Of Christopher Robin, Bond & More

Play
Read more

Our latest guest may be German, but he's clearly something of an Anglophile, having made a Bond film, the Peter Pan inspired Finding Neverland, and now a new take on the British cultural institution that is Winnie The Pooh.

Perhaps most importantly, Marc Forster is a total audiophile too! 

Marc's Christopher Robin is a delightful live-action addition to the Disney franchise, with Ewan McGregor in the leading role and Jim Cummings, Toby Jones and Sophie Okonedo among those providing the animal voices. 

It also features 3 original tunes by Richard Sherman, the legendary Disney songwriter.

Christopher Robin is dedicated to composer Jóhann Jóhannsson, who had already started scoring the film when he passed away so unexpectedly at the age of 48. So, at the eleventh hour, Jon Brion and Geoff Zanelli stepped in. You'll hear plenty of their exceptional work throughout the conversation, as well as tracks by Spoon, Muse, Chris Cornell, Wreckless Eric and more.

BEHIND THE LENS #179: Featuring Marc Forster and Nick Scown

Play
Read more
As we head into the dog days of summer, BEHIND THE LENS heads back to the Hundred Acre Wood with Marc Forster, takes another look at PRETTY BAD ACTRESS with Nick Scown, and welcomes an industry stalwart and loving dad turned author Norm Aladjem. Kicking off this episode of #BTLRadioShow, we go back to the Hundred Acre Wood and hear what CHRISTOPHER ROBIN director MARC FORSTER had to say to film critic debbie elias about bringing Pooh and pals to life in CHRISTOPHER ROBIN. From a request by his own daughter to make a film she could watch ("a Pooh film", to be precise), to the dream of a lifetime working with the legendary composer and songwriter Richard Sherman, to cinematographic design of the film, and the gifts of Pooh and moviemaking, Marc has a lot to say! And speaking of a dad and his daughter, you'll love hearing what NORMAN ALADJEM has to say about FROM ME TO YOU: STORIES ABOUT LIFE, LOVE, FAMILY, FAITH AND NOW TO NEGOTIATE A BIGGER ALLOWANCE when he joins us during the first half of the show. Established producer and talent manager for many years, Norm "stumbled" into the art of becoming an author thanks to his love for his youngest daughter. A book comprised of 52 "love letters" written by a daddy to his then 11-year old little girl for her to read and understand when a bit older, the book is a "Must Read" not only for dads and daughters, but parents and children alike, and even adult children who can still benefit from some fatherly advice. As if filling the gap left in the world by the absence of a Robert Young in "Father Knows Best" or an Ozzie Nelson or Ward Cleaver or Andy Taylor, you'll hear the love and excitement in Norm as he talks about not only how FROM ME TO YOU came to be, but the subject matters and life lessons that fill the pages. My favorite? "The Color of Money". Engaging and entertaining, you don't want to miss hearing Norm. Then we revisit the pretty darn funny PRETTY BAD ACTRESS with writer/director/editor NICK SCOWN. Last week we met actress Heather McComb who stars in the film. This week we get Nick's take on the creative process, tapping into the zeitgeist of child actors trying to make their way as adult actors, outsiders trying to fit in, casting perfection, developing a visual tonal bandwidth complementary to the story and dialogue while finding the balance between drama and satire, and something all filmmakers will appreciate – the process of concurrently wearing the hats of directing and editing and the inherent trials and triumphs therein.

Synopsis

Blake Lively (The Shallows) and Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty) star in this thriller from director Marc Forster (Monster’s Ball,World War Z), about a blind woman who regains her sight and begins to discover disturbing new details about her marriage and her life.

Marriages are a delicate psychological interplay between two people, and there's no shortage of stories about how that connection is altered when things take a turn for the worse. But this insightful new drama is about a married couple who face unexpected challenges when their circumstances seemingly change for the better.

James (Jason Clarke) and Gina (Blake Lively) are a happily married couple living in Bangkok. Gina has been virtually blind since the childhood car crash that destroyed her sight and killed her parents. Despite her difficulties, Gina lives a full life, depending on James for help navigating the raucous bustle of the city.

When Gina has the opportunity to have sight-restoring surgery on her right eye, she jumps at the chance. After the procedure, her world is changed. Not only does she see everything around her, but she sees herself in a new light. Their lives change in a million ways both large and small, and James' surprising response to the new status quo will reveal the troubling power dynamics underpinning their relationship.

With the collaboration of cinematographer Matthias Koenigswieser and a standout sound design team, director Marc Forster lets us experience the world as Gina does at all the different stages of her sight's recovery. Boasting finely tuned technique that augments our understanding of the characters' emotional arcs, All I See Is You is a truly cinematic and moving experience.
