Leonard Maltin sits down with John Woo to discuss the director's war epic, Red Cliff, which tells the story of a legendary civil war in early-third-century China.
With thousands of extras in its battle scenes, Red Cliff is the most-expensive production in the history of Asian movies. The movie opens as power-hungry General Cao Cao (Zhang Fengyi) seeks permission from the Han dynasty Emperor to organize a southward-bound mission designed to crush the two troublesome warlords who stand in his way, Liu Bei (Yong You) and Sun Quan (Chen Chang). Red Cliff shows the events during the end of the Han Dynasty and right before the Three Kingdoms period in ancient China.

It probably comes as no surprise that New Mexico has hosted its share of westerns, including Brokeback Mountain, Appaloosa, and 3:10 to Yuma. Or that the state's desert landscapes have been selected for apocalyptically themed movies such as the upcoming Terminator Salvation and The Book of Eli and the beginning-of-time flick Year One.
But outside the state's boundaries, not many people know that New Mexico has been the backdrop to more than 100 movies over the past century. To mark ReelzChannel's move to New Mexico and ribbon-cutting ceremony this week, we pick our Top 15 Movies Filmed in New Mexico.
And don't miss tonight's Secret's Out with Leonard Maltin, coming to you from our new studios in Albuquerque and featuring an interview with Governor Bill Richardson. Posted 04.24.09 by reelz
Leonard Maltin Says:
On a recent episode of Secret’s Out, I recommended The Human Stain, one of my favorite films of recent years that didn’t find the audience it deserved. One of its stars, Ed Harris, can always be counted on to give a solid performance. If you haven’t seen Pollock, which he also directed, you’ve missed one of his greatest portrayals.
Harris spent a decade preparing to make this screen biography of the fabled modern artist Jackson Pollock, who struggled for recognition in the 1940s even as he battled his inner demons. Marcia Gay Harden won an Oscar for her portrayal of the woman who put her own career on hold to nurse and nurture Pollock and help him achieve success. But with a self-destructive artist like this, the next pitfall is never far away. Pollock is a demanding but exceptional movie. Posted 07.25.08 by reelz
