Heads up for Neo-Noir fans, there's a remake of the James Toback-written 70s Noir 'The Gambler' coming soon (the original starred James Caan). This is the second time a 70s James Toback-scripted film of the 70s has been re-made, the other being the French thriller 'The Heart That My Beat Skipped', which I thought excellent and which was based on Toback's 70s film 'Fingers'. Hopefully Film4 might get a notion to show both originals-- 'Fingers' is particularly hard to see (it starred Harvey Keitel as the hoodlum who really would prefer to play the piano). I don't usually like Mark Wahlberg-- too macho, too Budweiser-and-baseball for my liking, but this looks too interesting not to see. And I'd be helping with the James Toback retirement fund!

"remake of James Toback's [sic] 1970s James Caan vehicle [sic] about a college professor with the titular [sic] addiction"
James Toback and Alec Baldwin’s documentary Seduced and Abandoned, which premiered on HBO last year, chronicles the two filmmakers’ attempts to procure funding at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival for a movie inspired by Bernardo Bertolucci’s seminal 1972 sexual drama Last Tango in Paris. For the averag…
MOVIES Seduced and Abandoned Postby CAP » Mon May 12, 2014 12:10 pm This is not the noted 1964 Italian feature directed by Pietro Germi, about the irresistible little village virgin, Agnese (Stefania Sandrelli) and her impulsive suitor Peppino (Aldo Puglisi) – a delirious Italian comedy, in the guise of late Neo-Realism perhaps, although maybe I’ll do a review of that some time. :lol: Anyway this time the title is used for an amusing little documentary following maverick director James Toback and actor Alec Baldwin around the 2012 Cannes Film Festival as they visit the financing sector and pitch for an improbable feature called Last Tango in Tikret. The two are clearly good friends and at ease in front of the camera and mostly it’s a kind of self-indulgent charm offensive. But it does have a few good jokes, so I give it 6. Toback is a notorious arthouse wannabe and sleaze – I bracket him with Paul Schrader. But here Toback assembles his material efficiently enough, paces it well, there’s probab ...
James Toback's "Seduced and Abandoned' is a brilliant study of Bertolucci's "Last Tango in Paris" and Marlon Brando's lasting impact.

Does anyone remember Bugsy? It was a best picture nominee in 1991, but recently I heard a younger critic whom I respect deride the movie over at The Film Talk despite his having never seen it. It might be the best picture Barry Levinson ever made, and it certainly was one of the greatest scripts James Toback ever wrote. It stars Warren Beatty, Annette Bening, Harvey Keitel and Ben Kingsley in the story of Benjamin "Don't call me Bugsy" Siegel and the creation of Las Vegas. It is a great, great movie, and one anyone out there named Jett should see immediately now that it is on Netflix.

Mark Wahlberg And Rupert Wyatt Eyeing ‘The Gambler’ Remake For Paramount By MIKE FLEMING JR | Wednesday September 11, 2013 @ 12:50pm PDT inShare.Comments (0) I’m in transit from Toronto, but here is a hot project coming together quickly. I’m hearing that Mark Wahlberg is circling to star and Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes helmer Rupert Wyatt is circling to direct The Gambler, a William Monahan-scripted remake of the 1974 James Caan movie for Paramount. The remake is being produced by original producers Irwin Winkler and Robert Chartoff and also Stephen Levinson. Caan played a college professor whose gambling addiction overcomes him even after he gets in big trouble with the wrong guys. James Toback wrote the original script.

"Talent deserves support from the community. It's a very simple proposition. What is art about? It's about telling stories, from a deeply person perspective, to share with each other. The heartache that we all share. Except we have people where money is the most important object...and their *** are measured by the amount of money that they have. And their possessions."--Harvey Keitel on "The Outsider (a documentary about writer/director James Toback)" when asked about the projects he has worked on that he was proud of but were never seen or never had a chance because they aren't part of that money making world that runs the movie industry today.
