32 Classic Movies to Watch Over the Holidays — IndieWire Critics Survey

  • Indiewire
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday.

Now that 2018 is coming to an end and most critics have already filed their “best of the year” lists, we’ve decided to step away from new releases for a moment, and shift focus to older movies that members of our survey fell in love with for the first time this year.

This week’s question: What was the best “older” film — anything from the early silents to recent under-the-radar gems — that you discovered for the first time this year?

Carlos Aguilar (@Carlos_Film), The Wrap, MovieMaker Magazine, Remezcla

Late last year, I went to see Samuel Maoz’s “Foxtrot” and walked out a different person. The Israeli drama about a couple waiting on news of their soldier son had simultaneously devastated my psyche and shown me a refined and measured film

Sherlock Holmes: 10 offbeat takes on the Great Detective

From spoofs to point-and-click adventure games, here are 10 of the most memorable unusual incarnations of Sherlock Holmes...

We don’t know a great deal about the content of the 90-minute Sherlock special set to air later this year, but one thing has emerged from the set photos and tantalising titbits of information we’ve seen so far. Sherlock Holmes and John Watson will be in nineteenth-century garb, pitching them back into the setting of the legendary detective’s original adventures: 1895, to be precise. Why that happens is as yet unclear, but all will be revealed.

For those still craving their Holmes fix in the meantime, the new film Mr. Holmes offers us Ian McKellen’s take on the character, musing upon an old case as he looks back on his long career from the vantage point of retirement. Jonny Lee Miller’s ultra-modern, Us-based Sherlock will be entering his fourth

Happy birthday, Hannibal: The Silence of the Lambs turns 25

It's been a quarter of a century since Thomas Harris's cultured cannibal exploded on the thriller scene, winning fictional killers a place in our hearts for ever

Can it really be a whole quarter of a century since Hannibal Lecter took up residence in our cultural landscape with the immortal line, "I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti"?

Well, actually, no. It is indeed 25 years since Thomas Harris's The Silence of the Lambs was first published, but that famous quote is from Jonathan Demme's highly rated 1991 movie adaptation of the book; Harris's original line did indeed have the sociopathic psychiatrist chowing down on the offal of a census taker who "tried to quantify me once", but in the original text the cannibalistic serial killer's wine of choice is "a big Amarone". Perhaps chianti was the preferred plonk of Anthony Hopkins, who portrayed

Casting Underway For Live-Action Lupin III

Today is a day for news on live-action anime adaptations it seems. We received our first trailer for the live-action "Gatchaman" aka "Battle of the Planets" earlier today and now we have a new report that a live-action "Lupin III" film is being developed with a few leads already cast. Shun Oguri (Detective Conan) has been pegged for the lead role of Arsène Lupin III, a fictional character that series mangaka Kazuhiko Katō (pen name Monkey Punch...how cool is that?) created back in 1967 as the grandson of Maurice Leblanc's Arsène Lupin. Sho Sakurai (Honey and Clover) will portray the sure-shot Daisuke Jigen while Satoshi Tsumabuki (The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift) has reportedly been cast as master swordsman, Goemon Ishikawa. According to Japanese sources, the film is scheduled to begin shooting this fall with a release set for March 2014. But the real question

Trailer for "Lupin no Kiganjo"

The Japanese film site Cinema Today has uploaded a trailer for Masatoshi Akihara’s Lupin no Kiganjo to their channel on YouTube.

The film is based Maurice Leblanc’s “L’aiguille Creuse”, known as “The Hollow Needle: The Further Adventures of Arsène Lupin” in English, but the characters and locations have been changed to fit a Japanese setting.

Arsène Lupin is a “gentleman thief” character which attained a level of popularity and longevity in French-speaking countries comparable to Sherlock Holmes in English-speaking countries. He’s also mentioned as the grandfather of the main character of the Lupin III manga and anime series.

In the film, a celebrity’s secretary is murdered, and a discrepancy in the testimonies of the people involved leads to utter confusion about what actually occurred. Meanwhile a female college student and amateur sleuth (Sayuri Iwata) discovers a mysterious cypher written on a piece of paper. She

First images from Sherlock Holmes vs. Jack The Ripper

Frogwares Studio and Focus Home Interactive have released early screenshots from the newest and perhaps scariest entry in their Sherlock Holmes adventure franchise. This game, Sherlock Holmes Vs. Jack The Ripper, pits the iconic inspector against England’s most notorious serial killer.

The PC title, out next March, places Holmes in London’s Whitechapel area circa 1888, when young women are being murdered in the East End. The police don’t have much as far as leads go, and Holmes comes in to take over the investigation and follow the trail left by Saucy Jack. This installment follows such highly successful series entries as The Awakened, Sherlock Holmes Vs. ARSÈNE Lupin and The Mystery Of The Mummy.

Sherlock Holmes Vs. Jack The Ripper will offer players two different 3-D view modes. The first is a third-person perspective in the classic adventure-game point-and-click style, while the second is a first-person view of the spooky,
