"Wish I Was Here": Zach Braff's Hothouse State

Wish I Was Here is Zach Braff's first movie since he came out with Garden State a decade ago. You might say the actor-turned-director-writer-producer has grown sentimental in his late 30s. With his new effort, Braff has been guileless -- or manipulative -- enough to wear his heart on his sleeve. He aligns himself with a branch of family comedy that admits bodily functions and ethnic flourishes as grist for laughs, yet readily veers into pathos.  Part sitcom, part indie drama...

Review of the film Wadjda

Wadjda A title that reminds us of the great Polish film-maker (Wajda), a subject that revolves around a bicycle (Italian master De Sica’s Bicycle Thieves comes to mind) and a director whose first name is the same as the name of a Middle-eastern city! The name Wadjda is pronounced Wajda or Wajida by most persons who live in the Indian sub-continent. Woman director Haifaa Al-Mansour’s debut feature, the first film to be shot entirely in Saudi Arabia and the first ever made there by ...

Filmmaker and Director John Michaels gives Testimonial for James W. Hawk

user
I met Filmmaker and Director John Michaels about a week ago and he gave me a testimonial for my work. Mr Michaels' testimonial states: "Jim is the most talented unknown I've ever met. His work is as close to perfect as it gets. Each frame is given so much thought that it is only a matter of time until we see his name on a commercial blockbuster.The biggest mistake you can make on your next project is by NOT hiring him." Here are Mr. Michaels film industry credits: ...

Grace of Monaco, Review

Grace of Monaco Where would you hope to find the Prince of Monaco, the Oscar-winning actress Grace Kelly, Charles de Gaulle, Robert McNamara (former US Defense Secretary), Maria Callas (legendary opera singer), Alfred Hitchcock and Aristotle Onassis (Greek business tycoon) on the same page? In a fictionalised biopic called Grace of Monaco. Perhaps too fictionalised, according to some. Writer Arash Amel (who earlier wrote The Expatriate, 2012), on being accused of taking too many liberties wi...

With You, Without You, Review

With You, Without You SriLankan writer-director Prasanna Vithanage again explores loneliness and helplessness in With You, Without You, a Fyodor Dostoyevsky novella (The Meek One, 1876) adaptation, deftly projected to SriLanka of 136 years later. It is dark, mainly bleak and sad, offers some hope and escape along the way, but veers towards an inevitable ending. Buddhist pawn-broker Sarathsiri leads a dull and purely functional existence, operating a shop on the ground floor and living above ...

The World Before Her, Review

The World Before Her Patient and painstaking are the two words that best describe the efforts of an Indian-Canadian documentary-maker and her Canadian backers in completing and releasing The World Before Her. It started rolling in 2008 and was completed in 2012. The next year, it was released in the US, and now, on 6 June 2104, it hits five Indian cities, on 17 cinema screens, coupled with a travelling campaign to increase awareness of women’s rights and female foeticide/infanticide (th...

Be With Me- Documentary Submission Accepted to NYCIndieFF

user
We just watched "Be With Me," a documentary short that was sent to us by its director Michael Terrill. "Be With Me" is the reflection of the journey the Cairns family took to help their autistic son, J.R., to recovery, something really not considered possible at the time J.R. was diagnosed. It was a wonderful feature; beyond being cleanly edited and intimately filmed, it successfully captured an emotional backdrop not found in every documentary. Through his interviews, Terril...

The #buffblog (May 2014)

user
  On the 3rd of March 2013, it was reported in the Sunday Telegraph that Revolver, at one point the UK’s most prominent urban theatrical and home entertainment film distributor, had entered into administration. Commentators had cited that the West London outfit (established in 1997), which brought iLL Manors, Anuvahood and Exit Through the Giftshop (to name but 3) to the masses had failed to keep up with the cultural shift in how their content was being consumed and appreciated. A lo...

"More Than the Rainbow": Street Photographer Matt Weber Gets His Close-Up

There are eight million stories in the naked city, and street photographer Matt Weber has captured thousands of them. His own story is the focus of Dan Wechsler's engaging documentary More Than the Rainbow. Weber became smitten with street scenes sometime during his 12 years as a New York cab driver. In 1990 his then wife, Laurie Weber, convinced him to jettison the Medallion and chase his dream of becoming the Henri Cartier-Bresson of Gotham. "You're photographing things ...

Pawel Pawlikowski's Lofty "Ida"

"So you are a Jewish nun," says Wanda Gruz (Agata Kulesza) on sizing up her niece Anna (Agata Trzebuchowska) in Pawel Pawlikowski's luminous black-and-white drama Ida. The audience shares in Sister Anna's astoundment as she learns that her birth name was Ida Lebenstein. This cowled waif we first meet adorning and adoring a Christ figure, a Jew? Never in her 18 years of coming up in the convent did such a thought ever gefilte her fair head. But now, in wintry Poland of the ea...

Dance, Dior and Dupes: Three Art Docs at Tribeca

You'd be forgiven for griping that documentaries about art can be snoozy. Yet you'd be doing yourself a disservice to let such prejudice keep you from discovering recent works that do the subgenre proud. Try Ballet 422, Dior and I and Art and Craft, all intriguing examples that premiered at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival. How else would you gain backstage access at the New York City Ballet? Hang out in a top French fashion studio? Or enter the fevered head of a...
