Apocalypse Now

War for the Planet of the Apes, Review: Ape-o-calypse now

War for the Planet of the Apes, Review: Ape-o-calypse now Apes riding horses, wielding rifles, and their leader being an English speaking specimen called Caesar is not enough for the makers of this third instalment of the series—they keep stretching your suspension of disbelief every minute, till they lead you to an apocalypse of a climax, perhaps believing that the word ‘war’ in the title has to be taken very, very seriously. Along the way, the War for the Planet of the Ape...

Siraj Syed reviews Passengers: Window seat at the journey of a life-time

Siraj Syed reviews Passengers: Window seat at the journey of a life-time They’ve got it right. Not perfect, but right. Mind-boggling special effects and a mind-toggling emotional narrative. It’s an elusive, coveted recipé, and for once, somebody nailed it.

The Shared Palme d’Or

user
by Marc Rickenbach   The 64th edition of the Cannes International Film Festival opened with Woody Allen’s new film Midnight in Paris. The American filmmaker, who has been honored by the festival in the past, is famously known to keep his films out of any competition and often does not show up, even if nominated. To some this might appear as a slight against those who wish to celebrate his work, but Allen simply does not feel that films, or any art for that mat...

by Marla Lewin Francis Ford Coppola at Torino Film Festival photo by Marc Halperin     Another in our series on the Future of Cinema.   We were attending the Torino Film Lab and I had the opportunity to interview Francis Ford Coppola. I mentioned we are working on a series about the Future of Cinema, and Francis said he has his own theory, but it would take some time to explain and would use up all of our time. He doesn’t think ...
