Hungarian film week opens discretely without a bang

user
The 39th annual Hungarian Film Week (Magyar Film Szemle, 2008) got under way discretely this year on January 30 without the customary fanfare of a grand opening gala at the Budapest Convention Center. There was, consequently, no prestige opening film or the usual champagne banquet where one might rub elbows with some of the sacred cows of the local industry such as the Jancsos and the Szabos, or catch sight of a Hungarian movie star or two. Whether this is due to a drastic cutback in funding...

LOOKING EAST: The Cinema of Goran Paskaljevic

 Wednesday, January 9-------The cinema of Eastern Europe is one of the world’s most complex and rewarding for filmgoers willing to take the journey into the hearts and minds of its singular film artists. Among the most idiosyncratic of these talents is Goran Paskaljevic, one of Europe’s most respected and critically acclaimed directors. While New York audiences may have caught a few of this iconoclastic director’s choice films at film festivals over the years, the Museum of Modern Art (Mo...

Interview with Ron Holloway Guest of Belgrade’s New Author Film Festival

user
Ron Holloway :(Guest of honor of Belgrade’s New Author Film Festival 2007) -On Internet it is said you are an expert for German film, you live in Berlin for very long time?-I have been writing my dissertation of cinema on Dryer or Bergman and I was very happy when I got my first job and I was said that I could go anywhere Eastern from Berlin, not only German Cinema and everywhere Eastern from my territory (USA).

Paul Greengrass Honored At London Film Festival

 Wednesday, October 31--------Truth be told, I left the London Film Festival on Monday morning, October 29th (also my birthday in case anyone wants to send me a belated box of chocolates). So, unfortunately, I missed an event that I truly wanted to cover. But through the art of the press release, I am able to report that on that same Monday evening (when I was blowing out I won't tell you how many candles), the Times BFI London Film Festival along with trade publication Variety presented the 20...

ROME: The Corriere de la Sera reports that reclusive, camera-shy American director Terence Malik showed up as scheduled for an audience with the festival press corps during the current second edition of the Rome International Film Festival with his specified precondition in place – No Photographs. During the session he steered clear of any commentary on his personal life, talking only about his film work while simultaneously demonstrating a surprisingly extensive knowledge of Italian film hi...

Chaz Thorne Is Having His Toronto Moment

 Thursday, September 6--------From a cursory look at the films to be shown at the Toronto International Film Festival, which opens this evening, it can seem as if Hollywood is dominating the program schedule. This is far from the truth. The Festival is very international in its scope, with a high percentage of film auteurs and fledgling directors from Europe, Asia and Latin America. It is also a terrific place to check the pulse of the Canadian film scene and discover local talent.One talented ...

Christopher Plummer In An Oscar-Worthy Performance

user
Friday, June 8-------On the (regrettably) long list of top-flight performers who (quite astonishingly) have never even been nominated for an Oscar, Christopher Plummer is certainly among the most neglected in this respect. Awards aside (and he has won his share), the veteran actor has a long list of film credits going back to the 1960s, which includes such classics as THE SOUND OF MUSIC (1965), INSIDE DAISY CLOVER (1965), THE ROYAL HUNT OF THE SUN (1969), SOMEWHERE IN TIME (1980), MALCOLM X (19...

The Golden Age of Documentaries

user
Friday, February 16----Much has been written about the "golden age of documentaries" that we suddenly and fortunately are currently immersed in. Perhaps it is a response to a violent and confusing world to which we are looking to bring knowledge, healing and understanding. Aside from aesthetic considerations, the documentary has also proven to be a highly profitable item for distributors, with such films as FAHRENHEIT 911, MARCH OF THE PENGUINS and this year's AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH...
