My Beautiful Art Career

I don't think I could ever be successful like any of the artists in The Field's study "To Fail and Fail Big: A Study of Mid-Career Artists, Success and Failure."   Independence, self propulsion and seriously FAILING often are all integral to my process.  Putting a lot of time into something that doesn't work, figuring it out, abandoning it and starting something else that does work are very important to me. When other people are controlling my work...

"Citizenfour" Reveals Edward Snowden

Is Edward Snowden getting his vitamin D? Laura Poitras's new documentary Citizenfour shines bright light on the former National Security Agency contractor -- who did more than his own share of elucidating -- but still, we worry. As the images of a dark tunnel hint, things can get pretty bleak for whistleblowers. Much of the film spans eight days in 2013 when the NSA defector is holed up in Hong Kong's Mira hotel. Composed and hyper-articulate at 29, Snowden briefs then-Guardian column...

 The striking Cambodian supernatural historical drama, 'FREEDOM DEAL: The Story of Lucky', set in 1970 as the Vietnam War expanded across the border during Nixon's controversial 'Cambodian Incursion (a military operation that launched waves of protest from Kent State to Berkeley, USA), continues to generate interest across the USA and beyond: "a strong, interesting story with good characters and excellent acting, and the supernatural element was bizarre but just rig...

Hungry Hearts: Film Review

  Hungry hearts, dir. Saverio Costanzo, Italy 2014 Venezia71  An Italian girl and an American boy meet accidentally in a Chinese restaurant in New York. The amusement of the first conversation is a corny, lighthearted lead to their upcoming future as a couple. Giving you a plain dose of a typical love story, Hungry hearts tricks you with its misleading rom-com opening, giving an under the belt punch with what's about to follow.      Jude (Adam Driver) and Mina...

If you need time to decide whether you’re fe...

One such fevered soul is Mosab Hassan Yousef, the son of Hamas honcho Sheikh Hassan Yousef who spied for Israel’s Shin Bet for more than a decade. Yousef's unlikely tale supplied the grist for his bestselling memoir Son of Hamas, and now it has inspired the documentary thriller The Green Prince. Directed by Nadav Schirman (The Champagne Spy, In the Darkroom), this stranger-than-fiction ac...
