welcome to total film

THE SMARTER MOVIE MAGAZINE The end is nigh…, yep, this month we mourn the end of an era (or is it?) with our access-all-areas coverage of The Rise Of Skywalker – an undertaking that forced our reporter, Jack, to travel to Disneyland and ride in the Millennium Falcon for research. The things we have to do, eh? While he was doing that, I was chatting to some excellent women – Greta Gerwig, Saoirse Ronan and Florence Pugh – about their new imagining of Little Women, plus Gugu Mbatha-Raw, on a hot streak with Motherless Brooklyn and The Morning Show. We also looked at life beyond Star Wars with Adam Driver, chatted with Stephen Graham about chucking dairy products at Al Pacino (he also does a stellar Pacino impression) and probed the…

JORDAN FARLEY NEWS EDITOR Went on an extremely exciting set visit this month. Can’t say much as I’ve been Bond… I mean bound to secrecy. MATTHEW LEYLAND REVIEWS EDITOR Chatted with Anthony Daniels, who was worried my son liked Count Dooku and the Emperor. It’s his fave thing about Star Wars, I explained: the nasty old men. MATT MAYTUM DEPUTY EDITOR I was on a night shoot for a hush-hush movie and was sad to leave before lunch was served at midnight. I went to In-N-Out Burger for animal-style fries instead.…

DEAR WINGMAN Being completely uncultured, I’ve only just watched Monty Python And The Holy Grail. I found it hilarious but the more I laughed, the more I realised British comedies aren’t as great as they used to be. I’m a young person so this isn’t a nostalgia thing. I just can’t help but think my generation is growing up watching comedies that aren’t as entertaining as Life Of Brian, The Full Monty or Shaun Of The Dead. Can you name a recent British comedy that can prove me wrong? JOSEPH SMITH, CHELTENHAM WINGMAN SAYS… It depends – are we counting The Inbetweeners Movies as one film or two?! Certainly ‘grownup’ Brit comedy does seem to be bigger on the small screen these days, but let us remember a sheep called Shaun and a bear…

When I saw the respective first parts of Steven Soderbergh’s Che and Kill Bill, I felt like staying in the cinema until they screened the second parts – only the ushers would have had to hoover around my skeleton. Maybe it isn’t feasible to show an entire four- or five-hour film, though a gap of a few weeks between sections is surely better than months or years, so the first segment stays…

long shot

It was always one shot in my head,” explains Sam Mendes, “two hours of real time.” Enjoying a cuppa with Teasers in his Soho office, he’s talking about his blistering new World War 1-set film, 1917, a staggering achievement that even bamboozled none other than Steven Spielberg, whose Amblin outfit co-produced it. “When he saw it, he said, ‘There are some shots, I need to know… how?’” It’s been an idea Mendes has toyed with for years, encouraged by tales told by his grandfather, Alfred Mendes, of his time serving in Flanders. “There’s a fragment of one story – he was given a message to carry. He was given several actually. And it’s what happened to him on this journey, in my grandad’s case a quite different journey [to what happens…
