"FILMFESTIVALS.COM ONES TO WATCH ON THE CIRCUIT" FOR FESTIVAL CONSIDERATION

 

THE CREEPY LINE a film by M.A.Taylor 2018

"A film that Google does not want you to see  - filmfestivals.com Best for Fest"

An eye-opening documentary, The Creepy Line reveals the stunning degree to which society is manipulated by Google and Facebook and blows the lid off the remarkably subtle – hence powerful – manner in which they do it.

The Creepy Line is a title culled from the words of former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, when during a 2010 interview he explained Google’s code of conduct: “The Google policy on a lot of things is to get right up to the creepy line and not cross it.”

However, as Dr. Robert Epstein explains in the film, “Google crosses the creepy line every day”. 

Offering first-hand accounts, scientific experiments and detailed analysis, The Creepy Line examines what is at risk when these two tech titans have free reign to utilize the public’s most private and personal data to manipulate society.

There is no question that the “creepy line” is getting ever-creepier, and that the tech giants have crossed it.

TAIPEI by Jason Lester Romance under influence - USA, first feature film 96 minutes

"Think Romeo and Juliet meets Trainspotting" - Filmfestivals.com Bruno Chatelin

Taipei%20Still%207.jpeg

Taipei is an adaptation of Tao Lin’s critically-acclaimed, cult favorite novel of the same name.

Two young New York writers fall in and out of love amidst a whirlwind of drugs, parties, technology, and travel. As one relationship collapses, another blooms for Erin, swept into the world of Paul Chen, a mysterious, charismatic author. When he proposes documenting every aspect of their new romance in an epic laptop-filmed “documentary”, the couple enter into a performative bad romance, fueled by substances and sleepless nights. Tracking the pair through a shotgun Niagara Falls wedding, an LSD trip in a New Jersey mansion, and to Taiwan, the country of Paul’s birth where the couple comes to confront their individual alienation, Taipei is a visually stunning, extremely contemporary portrayal of what it means to be young, alive, and in love in a digital world.

La fièvre dans le sang d’Elia Kazan (Splendor in the Grass, USA, 1961)

51Xkg5%2Bt11L.jpg
Contexte Après les succès d’Un tramway nommé désir (1951) et À l’Est d’Eden (1955), Elia Kazan signe ici une autre œuvre remarquable. Le scénario est de William Inge, qui joue brièvement le rôle d’un pasteur dans le film, et qui recevra un Oscar pour son travail. L’auteur s’est inspiré de personnes qu’il a connus dans le Kansas des années 1920. Le film signe les débuts d...
 

Le désert rouge de Michelangelo Antonioni (Il deserto rosso, Italie, 1964).

Affiche-DESERT-ROUGE-LE.jpg
La voix mystérieuse En ouvrant le film sur des images floues, d’où l’on devine les formes d’une usine, le désert rouge apparaît : désert parce que la terre est souillée et qu’il est impossible d’y vivre. Rouge, parce que contrairement, ou à cause de la langue russe ou le mot « rouge » signifie « beauté », ici tout est, selon le point de vue laideur ou fascinati...
 

Le Cabinet du docteur Caligari (Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari, Allemagne, 1919)

220px-Das_Cabinet_des_Dr._Caligari.JPG
  Contexte Le film devait initialement être réalisé par Fritz Lang, qui aurait eu l’idée d’ajouter un prologue et un épilogue pour justifier l’irréalisme du décor et le choix de l’expressionnisme, mais, en train de tourner Les Araignées, il fut empêché de poursuivre le projet par les distributeurs qui avaient un besoin urgent du film. Ce fut alors à Robert Wiene que le travail échut...
