“Marina Abramovic The Artist Is Present” captivates the audience

user
“Marina Abramovic The Artist Is Present” captivates the audience by Ron Gilbert In all honesty ,I must say that I was not familiar with the career of the incredibly creative artist, Marina Abramovic, but after seeing this documentary I would be the first in line to see her live in action. The advantage audiences will have in seeing this documentary is that the film explores her 40 year career and traces her roots in Yugoslavia, where she was raised by communist parents in a h...

The Return Of Roman Polanski

user
  Word comes from Europe that the celebrated director Roman Polanski will be returning to Zurich, Switzerland this week to accept the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Zurich Film Festival. This could have been a standard issue awards story except for the fact that Mr. Polanski’s trip to Zurich two years ago to pick up this same honor precipitated a one-year legal battle that led to months of house arrest and his possible extradition to the United States to face a prison term for fl...

Oldenburg Film Festival will honor Canadian filmmaker and producer Ted Kotcheff with a retrospective

user
© 2002 Filmbild Fundus Herbert Klemens The 80-years old Canadian director Ted Kotcheff is best known for his worldwide success of „First Blood“, though his body work consists of a diverse yet coherent creation spanning nearly six decades. He is an uncompromising chronicler of moral outsider stories. “I’m not the judge of my characters; I am their best witness.” This personal credo of internationally acclaimed director Ted Kotcheff – a maverick of the moral ‘outback...

Aruba - AIFF Makes Artistic Statement connecting film and art

user
It is perhaps a sign of a film festival’s “coming of age” when it dares to present films acclaimed in the world of art rather than merely at the box office. Such is the case with the Aruba International Film Festival’s invitation to three world renown directors of sophisticated, powerful art cinema and documentary creations. They all will participate in the AIFF Film Lab series, In Conversation With… Academy Award winning director Jonathan Demme will discuss his latest films at ...

Tribeca Turns Ten

  The Tribeca Film Festival, which begins on April 20, turns ten years old this year. It seems like only yesterday that the event sparked controversy (and not a little enmity) among the denizens of the city’s arthouse upper crust. Launched a few months after the event of 9/11 by Robert De Niro, a downtown celebrity and major property owner, the Festival was designed to create interest and to attract locals and tourists back to the neighborhoods economically devastated by the colla...

Art Or Exploitation? You Decide

user
  OK......let me set up the scene. You and your slacker roommate are living in a cheap rent apartment in one of San Francisco's less tony neighborhoods. One night, you hear an argument of torrential rage coming from behind the paper-thin walls from the apartment next door. Night after night, you are captivated by the hilarious and insidious darkness of the epithets being thrown from one person to the other, and then the bright idea strikes you.......record the madhouse melee for your fr...

Debut Directors With A Spanish Accent

user
  While this year's 40th edition of New Directors/New Films, the showcase of debut directors co-presented by New York's Film Society of Lincoln Center and the Museum of Modern Art, is certainly international in scope, several of the films on tap have a decidedly Spanish accent.

Helping us to understand the turmoil and the inner lives of those cultures, four films in the New Directors/New Film series, entering its first weekend...

Canadian Front Heading To New York City

user
  When cold weather descends on New York City, our local meterologists generally lay the blame at the door of our massive neighbor to the north. They refer to a cold air mass as a "Canadian front" and when it is in the forecast, be prepared for your bones to chill. Well, another Canadian front is on the horizon, but this one is much more benign, in fact it is downright welcome. Canadian Front 2011 is the yearly showcase of new Canadian cinema that starts tomorrow at New ...
