Festival attendees can discover the best of Bogie and Bacall in — where else? — Key Largo.

It’s also because the island at the head of the Florida...

A text of Richard Conte President of the jury

De definition of the cinema   The films we’re going to talk about can’t be easily defined. They’re unique because they don’t correspond to any definitions the reviews would like to use. In fact, you recognize these films when you watch them but it’s not possible “à priori” to determine their meaning or the “genre” they belong to. Of course films on art and artists exist and they’re often precious documents to understand...

Toronto Honors Ingrid Bergman with August Retrospective

1915 was an especially auspicious year in terms of celebrity births, and 2015 is shaping up to be quite the year for centennial celebrations. Frank Sinatra, Edith Piaf, Billy Holiday, Arthur Miller and Orson Welles are all having a resurgence in popularity this year, due at least in part to the flood of articles, books, films and conferences taking place around the world to commemorate their talent and achievements, and remind us of the complex and often controversial lives they led, in betwee...

DILIP KUMAR: Me and the Padma Vibhushan winner

DILIP KUMAR: Me and the Padma Vibhushan winner Getting the nation’s second highest civilian honour at 92 years and 45 days of age maybe a good example of beating the clock by the proverbial whisker, and Dilip Kumar is a most deserving recipient. But his art has already bagged all possible honours in the 54 year acting career he had, from 1944 to 1998. As a teenager, I earned tons of appreciation for mimicking him in the famous temple-deity confrontation scene from Dil Diya Dard Liya. L...

In 2015, Everything's Coming Up Orson

“Oh God, how they'll love me when I'm dead,” lamented Orson Welles to Peter Bogdanovich mere weeks before he died in October 1985. At the time, to many in the film world, Welles had long since become irrelevant as a director. He had become a parody of himself, making periodic appearances on the talk show circuit, and being the face of Paul Masson wines in its print and TV ads. To millions of Americans of the era, he was merely the fat guy on the wine commercials. Sadly, ...
