LFF - Miracle at St Anna

user
 Last night saw the LFF screening of Spike Lee's World War II epic, Miracle at St Anna, which follows the story of four black US soldiers who get trapped in a Tuscan village deep in Nazi territory with a marble head and a strange young boy for company. Without giving too much away, the film opens with a mystery and then travels back in time to unravel the mystery. It’s not so much a who-done-it, as a why-done-it.  There are outstanding performances from the four leads, in particular O...

Eskişehir -- Diary of a High-rise Zombie, other films, and a real Master Class - Part 3

user
The final film of the day was a most off-beat and slightly off-the-wall Swiss-French feature entitled "1 Journée" (One Day) by Swıss-French-English director Jacob Berger, with the director in attendance to field audience questions. Although the action of this film is compressed into a single 24 hour period a lot more happens here than in Zeynep's eight days mentioned earlier, in fact, so much happens that there is nearly enough material for two films.  The compressed synopsis is...

Eskişehir -- Diary of a High-rise Zombie, other films, and a real Master Class

user
Eskişehir. "Zeynep's Eight Days" ("Eight Day Daze" would be more to the point) is a film which won a best actress award at Ankara for the yoemanlike work of actress Fadik Atasoy in March. This debut feature by Cemal Şan is a long sterile meditation on the alienation of lonely livıng in sterile modern high rise apartments in a faceless big city in which the main actress who is in nearly every scene is called upon to act like a zombie or cyborg throughout. The film follows heroine...

The Fog Of War In The Middle East

 Sunday, June 17-------At the risk of being a moth-eaten cliche, the term "fog of war" is now routinely used to describe a state where political, strategic and moral choices in areas of conflict become shaded by the exigencies of human response to violence and an abandonment of an ethical compass that determines policy and behavior. This "fog of war" has certainly descended on the chaos that is now unfolding in the Middle East, both in the five-year conflicts in Afghanistan...
