NYFF 2021: The Velvet Underground & the New York Avant-Garde, ft. Todd Haynes, Amy Taubin, & others

The Film Comment Podcast

Two films in this year’s NYFF lineup take us back to the ‘60s heyday of the New York avant-garde: in the Main Slate, Todd Haynes’s The Velvet Underground offers a revelatory portrait of the milieu that gave rise to the eponymous band and its boundary-pushing music, while in Revivals, Ed Lachman’s Songs for Drella captures Lou Reed and John Cale in concert, paying tribute to the late Andy Warhol with riveting intimacy. On Sunday, October 3, Film Comment editor Devika Girish and Clinton Krute joined Haynes, Lachman, critic Amy Taubin, and the editors of The Velvet Underground, Affonso Gonçalvez and Adam Kurnitz, for a roundtable talk. In our wide-ranging conversation on the stage of Damrosch Park at Lincoln Center. We touched on the making of the two films, as well as the enduring legacy of the historic moment of artistic innovation they so vividly evoke.Stay tuned to filmcomment.com for more coverage of this year’s New York Film Festival, both on the podcast, and in the Film Comment Letter.

Episode 53: Amy Taubin on Todd Haynes's The Velvet Underground, Warhol's Factory, and Cannes 2021

The Last Thing I Saw

Welcome to The Last Thing I Saw, with your host, Nicolas Rapold. The Cannes Film Festival kicked off this week and so I joined forces with critic Amy Taubin, who is a veteran of the festival. This year Cannes is a little different for a number of reasons, which we talk about, but we also discuss the new film about The Velvet Underground from director Todd Haynes. Amy is actually in the documentary, and she was kind enough to share some of her firsthand experiences at the time with the Velvet Underground, Andy Warhol, and of course Warhol's Screen Tests, many of which appear in Haynes’s film.You can support this podcast and read show notes with links at:rapold.substack.comOpening music: “Monserrate” by The MinaretsPhoto by Steve Snodgrass

TUMP

With the Edward Yang series over it’s time to move from Taiwan to America with a filmmaker who’s still working today and our efforts to fill in a few gaps in his work. Todd Haynes has been known more recently for films like Wonderstruck and Carol. Long before that he was pushing limits of what thematically and legally was allowed to be projected in that dark room we liked to go visit before a pandemic told us all to stay at home. We start with his no longer legally allowed to be viewed 1988 short film Superstar: The Karen Carpenter Story.

Dark Waters with Todd Haynes | Picturehouse

The Love Of Cinema

Sam Clements talks to director Todd Haynes about his new film, Dark Waters. A tenacious attorney uncovers a dark secret that connects a growing number of unexplained deaths due to one of the world’s largest corporations. In the process, he risks everything – his future, his family and his own life – to expose the truth. Corporate environmental defence attorney Rob Bilott (Mark Ruffalo) has just made partner at his prestigious Cincinnati law firm, in large part due to his work defending Big Chem companies. Soon he’s contacted by two West Virginia farmers who believe that the local DuPont plant is dumping toxic waste which is destroying their fields and killing their cattle. Hoping to learn the truth, Bilott, with help from his supervising partner in the firm, Tom Terp (Tim Robbins), files a complaint that marks the beginning of an epic 15-year fight – one that will not only test his relationship with his wife, Sarah (Anne Hathaway) but also his reputation, his health and his livelihood.

Episode 183: Todd Haynes On The Music Of Dark Waters

Soundtracking with Edith Bowman

Our latest guest on Soundtracking is returning for a second visit to discuss a film that had an instant and lasting impact on us, and has set critics purring - with one boldly describing it as 'the perfect movie'. Dark Waters sees the delightful Todd Haynes direct Mark Rufallo as real-life lawyer Robert Billot, taking on American chemical giant DuPont on behalf of plaintiffs in West Virginia. Though Todd draws inspiration from classic conspiracy thrillers such as All The Presidents Men, he is ultimately more interested in his characters - the victims - and how their lives are quietly devastated by cynical forces way beyond their control. As well as featuring plenty of country music as source, Dark Waters is beautifully scored by Marcelo Zarvos
