Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem

If your protagonist has to keep pressing her case in a dingy courtroom for five years, the world of your movie can get pretty claustrophobic. It's an acceptable risk of Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem, which unfolds within court chambers and a waiting room till virtually the last frame. How else to show what the titular character (Ronit Elkabetz) goes through to obtain a divorce in Israel's Orthodox Chief Rabbinate? Directors Ronit and Shlomi Elkabetz give viewers an authentic tast...

"Timbuktu": Mauritania's Oscar-nommed Jihadist Tale

  Don't go see Timbuktu expecting revival of Kismet. Abderrahmane Sissako's latest film offers a somewhat more subdued portrait of Mali's spiritual and intellectual capital, one where music is banned. So are soccer, cigarettes, laughter and unveiled women, among other prohibitions being slapped on local citizens in 2012, as mujahideen spread their brand of Sharia to the West African nation's northern tier. We first meet these zealots barreling across the desert in a pick...

Director Gabe Polsky Talks Hockey Documentary "Red Army"

  Gabe Polsky's Red Army is a winning addition to the scorecard of sports-themed films -- like Moneyball and Foxcatcher -- for people who don't give a whit about sports. With dramatic flair and insightful heft, the documentary digs into Soviet social history through the prism of its triumphant national ice hockey team from the height of the Cold War to the unravelling of the USSR. The star of that team and of Polsky's film, Viacheslav "Slava" Fetisov, became the yo...

"Concrete Night" (Betoniyö) at 26th PSIFF

One of my favorite films at this year's festival was undoubtedly 'Concrete Night' (Betoniyö), 2013, by Finnish director Pirjo Honkasalo. Stunningly shot in black and white, this noir anti-coming-of-age story is about a 14-year-old, Simo, who prematurely becomes a tormented young man overnight. While most young adults the same age are enjoying the carefree life of high-school, friends and the opposite sex, Simo faces the dark side of life through a series of escalated traumati...

The Theory of Everything, Review: A Practical Treat for Everyone

Oscar-nominated Editor Tom Cross on "Whiplash"

Tom Cross surely has a sore neck since hearing the news: his work on Damien Chazelle's Whiplash has earned the picture one of its five Oscar bids -- in his case for "Best Film Editing." It's the Los Angeles-based editor's first Academy nomination. Back in the fall I spoke with Cross about cutting the scrappy music-themed indie. Here's the full story: http://www.thalo.com/articles/view/997/film_editor_tom_cross_brings_on_whiplash ...

The Woman in Black, 2—Angel of Death, Review: Hammer misses the nail

The Woman in Black, 2—Angel of Death, Review: Hammer misses the nail The Woman in Black, 2: Angel of Death (TWIB 2,-AOD) is made by the same production team behind the original Woman in Black, with a screenplay by Jon Croker, said to be based on Susan Hill's novel. There is a book called The Woman in Black: Angel of Death, but it is a novelisation of the film by crime writer Martyn Waites, from Jon Croker’s screenplay. So the sequel does not owe anything to the original. Versi...

The Babadook, Review: Spook or self-help book?

The Babadook, Review: Spook or self-help book? It’s a ghoulish game! It’s a bed-time horror story! It’s a horrific riddle! It’s Babadook! It’s a self-help book! Not to be confused with Indian/Middle Eastern mystics/sufis/sadhus who go around under the nomenclature of Baba, or (prodigious?) male babies who are affectionately so called, Babadook uses the horror genre to try and conquer the demons within. But heaven help her if any single mother has to take the Baba...
