CAREER RETROSPECTIVE: THE AL PACINO FILMOGRAPHY

user
THE ELITE: In a career teeming with brilliant work, these are Al Pacino's greatest films. The Godfather: This is where the legacy begins, both of the greatest one-two punch in film history and Pacino's stellar career. Pacino first plays the highly moral idealist Michael sheepishly, until he subtly morphs into a cold-blooded gangster right before your eyes. It is the most amazing transformation ever portrayed in the cinema; made all the more powerful because you barely register it happening. A+ ...

Belgrade’s New Author Film Festival opener cancelled

user
Belgrade’s New Author Film Festival was not officially opened with Chinese film “Summer Palace” (Yihe Yuan) by Lou Ye, because Serbia didn’t wanted to politically compromise with Chinese government. Just minutes before the movie “Summer Palace” supposed to open the festival, Serbian authories pulled the movie off the festival because China threatened to freeze all diplomatic relations with Serbia. Chinese movie is problematic because it mentions events from Tiananmen Square (Tiananm...

Code Of Confusion: The Critics Versus The Public

Well, if one needed further proof of how far apart most film critics are from the cinematic tastes of the general public, you need look no further than THE DA VINCI CODE. The film, which famously opened this year’s Cannes Film Festival, was practically laughed at by assembled critics on the Croisette, who had come to bury the film, not praise it. When the film opened internationally this past weekend, more film critics joined the chorus of nay-sayers, calling the film everything from “borin...

Cannes Classics on the Beach is a classic experience

Throughout the festival people have the opportunity to attend screening of old school, aka "former", Cannes film festival winners while enjoying the beautiful scenery of the plage at night time. Low-sitting beach chairs provide a casual and comfortable viewing experience, but if you need to read the sub-titles, I recommend getting there early in order to get front row seats, otherwise they are hard to see. Fortunately, even people who do not have any film festival badge can still have a...

The Arrival! The Actors Come and the Festival Begins

Wednesday was the first official day of the festival, but to a few select few it really started on Tuesday. Tuesday was the arrival of the Da Vinci Code Key Players: Dan Brown, Ron Howard, Paul Bettany (who also starred in Wimbledon...a quality piece of romantic comedy with a superb soundtrack in my opinion), Ian McKellen, Audrey Tautou, and Tom Hanks...to name a few. Unfortuantely, Hanks likes his privacy, so I only got a really good picture of the reflective window in his car. They arrived ...
