There were many outstanding films at the 73rd Venice Film Festival this year but the awards on closing night, September 11, were as usual "iffy" to say the least. Venice has become known for good films and bad calls when it comes to dishing out the coveted Golden Lions at the end of the festival week. To start at the bottom the worst call of all was the Best Director Silver Bear award to Amat Escalante, for the Mexican porno-horror miscar...

Screening the fil...
State of Poetic Emergency
Video and digital arts are today developing in a very worrisome international, social and political context. Fear of foreigners. Decline of civil liberties. Fright of human passions. Desires of emancipation under security control. Management nonsense is the rule. Electronic poetry invents new languages to think the world differently and to take part in its transformation. Let’s declare the State of Poetic Emergency. We expect the 29th festival to be unb...

Raaz Reboot: Exorcise in futility
When the best things in a horror/supernatural film are its songs, it does not augur well. A few days before the release of Raaz Reboot (they use that in the title? I thought ‘reboot’ was a word copyrighted to journalists and IT whiz kids!) the Bhatt threesome—brothers Mahesh and Mukesh and protege Vikram—announced that Raaz 4 (now, that sounds better) would be the last instalment in the series. Foresight for sure. Raaz (Hindi/Urdu for ...

In terms of number of outstanding flms seen and personalities such as J.P. Belmondo, Sophie Marceau, and John Landis encountered up close, it was the best film festival I've winged thru in years.
The closing awards watched on big screen in the Press Room was a noteworthy event in itself and I then caught a double header of prize winning flicks after that to close out the festival week.
