The Power of the Individual

Thursday, May 3------The power of the individual to right wrongs, bring up issues and to literally move a society a few steps further is a message that one cannot hear enough these days.

Her amazing story is recounted in SHAME, a documentary film by Mohammed Naqvi, that had its New York Premiere last eve...

Spending The Holidays With Woody Allen

Saturday, December 23----When I was growing up Jewish in Brooklyn, New York in the 1960s, Christmas Day meant only two things…..Chinese food and going to a movie.

So, it became a Jewish tradition (and the only option in town) to frequent ...

A Florentine Hommage to Ismail Merchant

user
For a certain niche group of cinephiles ever since the release of a film called "Shakespeare Wallah" in 1965, the "Merchant-Ivory" label has become synonymous with high-class rarified taste in cinema in some way associated with India ("A Passage to India", "Heat and Dust"), or, in the later collaborations of this producer-director team, with ultra refined literary adaptations set in Victorian England such as "The Remains of the Day", and "Howard's end". To be brutally frank, since "Merchant-Ivor...
