Cannes 2011: Palme d'Or race begins to come into focus

user
  Tilda Swinton in We Need to Talk About Kevin. Courtesy of IMDb. It's never too early to begin handicapping the Palme d'Or race.  The film-festival world's most prestigious prize captures the attention of attendees in Cannes the way the New Hampshire primary mesmerizes political pundits -- it's hashed out and obsessed over for every possible shade of meaning -- and provides a film festival with a certain level of suspense. With the competition now one-third underwa...

Interview with Monte Hellman

< p>  ROAD TO NOWHERE (2010) premiered at the 2010 Venice Film Festival and since then has screened in prestigious festivals around the world, its latest at the Copenhagen Film Festival, CPHPIX, 2011.

ESSENTIAL KILLING at CPHPIX

user
ESSENTIAL KILLING (Poland, 2010) screens at Copenhagen International Film Festival In 'Essential Killing' (2010) actor Vincent Gallo plays Mohammed, a Taliban from Afghanistan on the run from American soldiers through the mountains of Poland after slaughtering three American soldiers to bits. While I would not say this film is bad nor good, I would definitely say that it is very worth the time as it is certainly a film not soon to be forgotten. Who would of thought Gall...

Day 2 in Off Plus Camera: things you do when you are cold....

I felt cold but did not want to be sick. So???  Let me tell you about my strategy on killing germs of a cold. I slept a bit longer? J and decided to cancel the visit to the studio, state of the art post production complex 20 km off Krakow that immerses you in Alien’ Geigers setting. I also skipped the visit of the old town and worked (in my room) my emails and dealt with other business issues…At 1.00 I went to the panel held by Christian Gaines from IMDB on self distribution...

13th Film Noir Festival in Hollywood

'The Way Back', from Dubai to Palm Springs

user
It would seem that Peter Weir's latest film, 'The Way Back' (2010) is making its own journey and 'Way Back' from Weir's homeland in Australia to Dubai where it premiered in the Middle East last month and now to its North American premier at the Palm Springs International Film Festival 2011. It's certainly making its way across the globe. While it has received mixed reviews and an undecided audience opinion, it seems to be fighting its way beyond negative popular opinion in its ubiq...

'HERMANO' at PSIFF 2011

user
 This was the third film I saw on my first day at PSIFF 2011...I mean, I really did pick the best for the first day... Marcel Rasquin's film, 'Hermano' (2010) conjures up reminiscence to the Brazilian hit film, 'City of God' (2002), not because it is similar, but because it is THAT GOOD!  We start with a baby boy (Daniel) left to die in a dumpster. A mother picks the baby out of the dumpster and takes him home with her young son, Julio. Then we jump to years later when both boys- Daniel an...

PSIFF 2011 reviews

  In 'Essential Killing' (2010) actor Vincent Gallo plays Mohammed, a Taliban from Afghanistan on the run from American soldiers through the mountains of Poland after slaughtering three American soldiers to bits. While I would not say this film is bad nor good, I would definitely say that it is very worth the time as it is certainly a film not soon to be forgotten. Who would of thought Gallo could pull off such a feat! He is compelling in his role as Taliban on the run and while intim...

Whatever Happened To Ryan Gosling?

user
I've never seen The Notebook.  I know.  That's bad right?  An alleged film connoisseur who writes a blog about films and never has seen The Notebook.  But I must admit, I've seen just about every other Ryan Gosling film made. My favorite is the film Half Nelson where he plays the crack-addicted school teacher who begins an unlikely friendship with one of his students.  I also loved his work in United States of Leland where he had the opportunity to work with the likes of Kevi...
