Berlin , quickshots, best, worst and in between

by Alex Deleon With some 400 films to choose from one might say that everybody sees a different festival over a ten day period. Of the official competition films two were early walkouts. Ralph Fiennes' "Coriolanus"  and the Bela Tarr entry  "A Torinoi Lo" (The Turin Horse) -- arguably the most bleak, depressing , and boring film ever made. It's all about two miserable people livinng in a miserable life in a miserable hut somewhere in the middle of nowhere and tr...

Rewind: a look back at Berlinale's edition 2010

user
"But abundance suits this festival, which draws crowds to commercial movies and challenging experimental work alike, even in the dead of a snowy, bitterly cold winter. While Sundance and Cannes can seem at once hermetic and frenzied - somewhat surreal media happenings in resort towns crammed beyond capacity - the Berlinale takes place in an art-saturated city that comfortably accommodates eclecticism and excess." (New York Times)  Metropolis at the Brandenburg Gate ...

A Film Feast At Woodstock FF

user
  You maybe have heard of Woodstock.....the pastoral country town, not just the famed music festival. For those in the know, the two should not be confused, since the seminal 1969 music concert happened nearly 50 miles away. But the spirit of those times lives on in Woodstock, New York, where films fill the screen, music rocks the clubs and, oh yes, pot smoke (still) is in the air. Tie-dye still reigns in this Catskills bohemia, and each year the hippies (now entering menopause) joi...

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...
