European Film Awards: The Year of The Romanian Film

Tuesday, December 4----------The year 2007 will be remembered for many things.....but one of the biggest surprises, at least in the worlds of film and media, has been the emergence of the former Communist state of Romania as the hottest film producing territory, not only in Europe, but also worldwide. Of course, a few international arthouse hits does not a thriving industry make, but if one wanted to get a sense of where the energy and inspiration in contemporary cinema could be coming from next...

Tribute To A Gallic Bad Boy

 Wednesday, August 8---------There is no equivalent in the United States.....the actor Gerard Depardieu is a truly French phenomenon, a pasty-faced, barrel-chested, unpolished, roughly handsome leading man, who somehow is an enduring Gallic sex symbol. He does not have the sensual prettiness of an Alain Delon, the rail-thin sex appeal of a Jean-Paul Belmondo or the intelligent visage of a Yves Montand. He is, in fact, his own unique creation, and his enduring appeal in French cinema is mostly...

Debut Of A Portugese Minimalist

 Wednesday, August 1-----When COLOSSAL YOUTH, Portugese director Pedro Costa's minimalist mural of urban decay in contemporary Lisbon, premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2006, it was the kind of film that critics love to argue about. Some of the film's (and the director's) supporters declared the film to a meditative study of societal tensions, while others found its slow pacing and oversized length (nearly 3 hours) to be almost unbearable. Walk outs at Cannes (not to mention...

Rialto Cinema Classics At MoMA

Monday, July 23-------You may think you know the film that many major film critics chose as the best of last year. But in reality, with little fanfare or certainly Oscar buzz, the film that garnered the most uniform praise from top film scribes was a French thriller, shot in 1959 and set in occupied France during World War II by a director who has been six feet under for more than three decades. That film, ARMY OF SHADOWS, directed by Jean-Pierre Melville, was an astonishingly gritty and involvi...
