Rafa Russo’s ‘The Year of Fury’ Deftly Interweaves Latin American Politics to the Forefront

               “The Year of Fury,’ Rafa Russo’s film set in Uruguay during the early 1970s, maintains its cool sensibilities by its knowing and interesting set of characters. It rolls and flows fluidly by Russo’s lyrical direction – always mindful that the heart of the story rests in the importance of how creative writers must maintain their poise in the face of a pending dictatorship. The motion picture will surely be embra...

A Look At 'Goodbye How Are You?'

user
by Jared Feldschreiber A Serbian “documentary-satire” that doesn’t really have a genre other than the fact, “thank goodness you don’t live in Serbia.” Broken up in 24 vignettes in a mere one hour, this deadpan and morbidly hilarious take on “modern” Serbia looks like a society so backward even Sasha Baron Cohen’s Borat would complain about its primitiveness. It’s a sad tale, to be sure, but an important one that gives strange insig...

Reviewing Slovenka (Slovenian Girl)

user
by Jared Feldschreiber  A bit brutal, a bit familiar and also even sly in the various twists and turns it takes, Slovenian Girl find itself in its own genre. It's something renowned Polish director Krzystof Kieslowski would be proud of it, since it incorporates female interiority to a protagonist who is both a liar and an empathic rustic student trying to get by in a big city. The story of a call girl by night and sweet and demure country-girl by day suggests that first glances ...

Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps Review

‘ Someone reminded me I once said “Greed is good.”Now it seems it’s legal. Because everyone is drinking the same Kool Aid.’ -Gordon Gekko Michael Douglas once said that Oliver Stone has an insatiable ability to make actors unearth things within the deepest recesses of their souls. The actor also recalled the director once quipping to him while shooting the original Wall Street: “Are you OK? Is everything fine? Are you on drugs?&...

John Lennon’s Legacy in Film

  John Lennon was an iconoclastic symbol of the counterculture, a public figure that rejected conventional social mores, which were complemented by his musical gifts. Whether as an actor or as a pop star Beatle, Lennon was often portrayed as “witty and satirical,” descriptions that he ultimately hated and sought to grow as an artist and human being. This essay traces his filmic life as a way to survey whether his “roles” (fictional or biographical) helped to manif...

"Labor of Love" 'Hal' Chronicles The Seminal American Auteur

    As a disclaimer before watching Amy Scott’s ‘Hal,’ a loving and knowing documentary on the life of the seminal 70s auteur Hal Ashby, it’s a film for the ultimate cineaste. It’s for the filmgoer who prides his or herself on encyclopedic knowledge, bordering on obsession, of the “New Hollywood,” or as sometimes referred to as the American New Wave. Ashby, while an influential filmmaker of the 70s canon when he released 7 memorable films of ...

Robert Redford's Quips from Sundance '18's Day One Press Conference

user
  Robert Redford, the legendary film director, actor, producer, and Sundance Film Fest founder, took part in an open press conference with two of his colleagues in Park City, UT to kick off the proceedings.   ROLE OF JOURNALISM WITHIN SOCIETY I’m a huge fan of journalism, which I think is borne out of the projects I’ve done. Journalism is a big deal for me. It always appears to be under threat periodically. Something comes up and then it dies down; it comes up ...
