Viennale Festival trailer by James Benning: Fire & Rain

user
The annual festival trailer has been one of the Viennale's special features for quite some time now. It is not a commercial trailer as such, but rather a small, autonomous piece of cinema, standing on its own and for the festival alike. In the case of James Benning's work this short trailer is a true action film. Benning shot the work process in a steelworks in the Ruhr area. On a kind of conveyor belt, a glowing piece of steel flits across the screen and disappears only to reappear again a...

"Tarantino's  GLOURIOS BURSTERDS" Grokked at ODEON Muswell Hill, London, Tues. August 25, 2009   I have never been a great Quentin Tarantino fan ( I hated "Pulp Fiction" and walked out of "Reservoir Dogs") but right off the bat I will have to say that even if he doesn't get an Oscar this year, Mr. Q.  should at least get a medal -  the Congressional Medal of Honour  (of Poland and Israel?) - for telling it like it should have been, ev...

“Tarantino’s GLOURIOS BURSTERDS”

I have never been a great Quentin Tarantino fan ( I hated “Pulp Fiction” and walked out of “Reservoir Dogs”) but right off the bat I will have to say that even if he doesn’t get an Oscar this year, Mr. Q. should at least get a medal – the Congressional Medal of Honour (of Poland and Israel?) – for telling it like it should have been, even if it wasn’t quite actually that way. Any person of Jewish persuasion who does not stand up and cheer at various points in this tremendous...

I am versatile artist in my form and have spread my unique sound and style from Los Angeles to New Jersey. I have resided in Portland Oregon since 1998. Do not let me fool you. I haven't always been able to stand on my own with modesty, yet I am also seen as a profound writer for several published poetry books, featured recordings, videos, film credits and international and national art designs under my belt.

The Challenge Of Human Rights

user
These challenging times call for courage, determination and a selflessness that was woefully out of fashion in the Me-Me-Me Decade that preceded the worldwide economic collapse. That there is potential for the global community to learn from its mistakes is always a hopeful sign (although let us remember that the Great Depression was followed almost immediately by its antidote, World War II). When this moral courage needs to be inspired in each one of us, it helps that courageous filmmakers are d...

Rockwell the Inspiration for Duncan Jones' 'Moon'

user
Rockwell the Inspiration for Duncan Jones' 'Moon' WHOA! This movie is a mind-blow. Let me start by saying that I am quite unfamiliar with the genre of science fiction. When I read about this movie I didn't think, 'Oh what a cool sci-fi this movie will be.' SO it was a surprise to me when during the Q&A at the West Coast premiere of the movie at the SFIFF Sunday night so many questions and answers had to do with the sci-fi genre (themes borrowed from other movies, etc...
