The Legacy of the Radiant Child

user
  Even if you don't know his name, you probably know his imagery. The streetwise graffiti, the charismatic iconography, the madcap use of words and visuals from pop culture.....the coolness of the work and the indelible signature of a gifted, natural (as opposed to heavily trained) artist. And add one more romantic detail.....death at the tender age of  27 after a blazing career that now sees his doodlings capturing record prices on the art auction market. Like James Dean before him, ...

Today is Better than Two Tomorrows

user
Interview with celebrated composer Cyril Morin!!  Cyril Morin's latest score is for the documentary film Today is Better than Two Tomorrows (2009), a hair raisingly poignant film that takes a look into the lives of two 12 year-old Laoatian boys as they experience a rite of passage ceremony in a far off Buddhist land. Journey with them as they pass from childhood into ritualized and socially recognized adulthood, after which they will never be the same.   ME: Hi, Cyril. Can you tell us what...

Tribeca Film Festival - Here Come the Neighborhoods

"Modoki" is the Japanese word for "similar, yet different." Take for example the Tribeca Film Festival (April 21 to May 2, 2010), and October's New York Film Festival. Both are Manhattan cinema extravaganzas — whose overlaps end there. Populist Tribeca plays teriyaki to artsy NYFF's sashimi.    Nearly four decades the Lincoln Center event's junior, Tribeca was founded in 2002 by Robert De Niro, Jane Rosenthal and Craig Hatkoff as a goad to downtown development in th...

Something to Crowe About, Danielle Spencer Set to Do Movie Music Next

user
While Russell Crowe is doing a gory, high-minded version of ROBIN HOOD for Ridley Scott's May release, wife Danielle Spencer is "Calling All Magicians." And it seems to be just a matter of time before she turns her hand to movie music. You heard it first here.The Aussie-born singer/song writer/actress, who met Crowe on the set of early career film THE CROSSING (1990), has put out a second album that has a few woodsy quirks of its own:“I knew that I wanted to make this sound different to my (de...

Rockwell the Inspiration for Duncan Jones' 'Moon'

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...
