LFF - American Teen

user
American Teen is Nanette Burstein’s look at American teens (obviously) through the eyes of the senior year at a high school in Warsaw, Indiana. Or possibly a mockumentary homage to John Hughes, if you belief the IMDB posts! What Burstein has either discovered, or cleverly edited to discover, is that those clichés you have seen in every teen movie since The Breakfast Club, are actually true. We have the Megan the popular bitch (with hidden darkness of her own), Colin the local basketball sta...

Noir City Seattle closes with wicked women

user
To start at the end, the final film of the now fabulous "Noir City" festival in Seattle, closing out a solid week of non-stop black-hearted delight, was "Wicked Woman" (1953) -- arguably, the purest 'noir' ever made. This was billed along with Fritz Lang's far more famous and far more arty "Scarlet Street" (1945), and the contrast between these two striking studies in wickedness is almost as striking as the films themselves. To start with, Lang was a very European "art director" and "Scarlet S...

The party of the week and honors to von Sydow in San Sebastian

user
Nursing a bit of a "resaca" (aka "jengober", or just plain hangover) ... after the JAMAN reception yesterday at the Hotel Londres, which has leapt to the fore as a hot contender for the unofficial "BDPW" Concha, or "Best Damn Party of the Week Award. The thing that characterized this reception -- which started at eight and went on until well after midnight -- was, understated class and a quality mix of people, exquisite "amuse-gueules" (bitey snacks or 'pintxos'), and an endless supply of tasty...

Andy Garcia Special Guest of Karlovy Vary Fest and a Touch of Class with Jacqueline Bisset Andy Garcia, Cuban born actor (Havana, 1956) will be honored with a career award and will also present his hotly awaited new film "Lost City" this week in Karlovy Vary. The film, which deals with the rise of Fidel Castro, has raised hackles in certain circles because of the less than sympathetic light in which Counter-Culture and perennial youth hero, Che Guevara, is shown among other things. However, And...

Japanese racoons and a clamorous chinese new year in the midst of Rotterdam Fest

user
It so happens that Rotterdam's extensive Chinatown is located just around the corner from the film festival centre, and the Chinese New Year which is reckoned according to the lunar calendar, came out extra late this year on January 30th, smack-dab in the midst of the film festival. Consequently, all afternoon today, festival filmgoers navigating between film venues in the area, were treated to an extraordinary side-show -- fabulous colourful dragon mock-ups held aloft by teams of dragon dancers...
