The good, the bad and the ugly

Alex Deleon offers his choice of ten best and worst films of the past year. Well, it's that time again when many film reviewers and critics compile their lists of Best (and Worst) of the flicks they were exposed to in the preceding year. Given that one can no more tell people which films they "should" like and which they shouldn't, anymore than you can expect everybody to agree with you on the taste of tripe soup or boiled tongue-- or even honey, for that matter -- it should be obvious to any pe...

14th ATHENS INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL September 17 – 28, 2008All good things must come to an end and the curtain fell on the 14th Athens International Film Festival CONN-X on September 28 after a screening of Mike Lee’s ‘Happy-Go-Lucky’ and an unforgettable party with loads of music, drinking and dancing.

Eskişehir -- Diary of a High-rise Zombie, other films, and a real Master Class - Part 3

user
The final film of the day was a most off-beat and slightly off-the-wall Swiss-French feature entitled "1 Journée" (One Day) by Swıss-French-English director Jacob Berger, with the director in attendance to field audience questions. Although the action of this film is compressed into a single 24 hour period a lot more happens here than in Zeynep's eight days mentioned earlier, in fact, so much happens that there is nearly enough material for two films.  The compressed synopsis is...

Eskişehir, an off-the-beaten-track fılm festıval with Flair

The 10th Eskişehir (Turkey) Film festival opened on Saturday, May 2 on the spacious modern-looking campus of Anadolu University wıth a flourish and gala celebration worthy of many an A-festıval.  While this festival is relatively minor sandwiched in between the big Turkish festivals of İstanbul, Ankara, and Antalya, it has a truly international flavor and offers extraordinary hospitality to foreign visitors in a forested college campus setting with handsome modern buildings, guest houses, a...

Eskisehir closes quiely while looking ahead

user
The 10th Anadolu University Eskishehir film festival wound up its ten day run on May 12 with no particular fanfare, just the usual 24 daily on and off campus screenings. Altogether local film fans were treated to over seventy films selected from all periods of film history from Chaplin silents, through early Hitchcock up to a wide selection of new festival films such as Scorcese’s Rolling Stones documentary “Shine a Light” which opened Berlin this year and “No Country for Old Men” a m...

Eskişehir -- Diary of a High-rise Zombie, other films, and a real Master Class

user
Eskişehir. "Zeynep's Eight Days" ("Eight Day Daze" would be more to the point) is a film which won a best actress award at Ankara for the yoemanlike work of actress Fadik Atasoy in March. This debut feature by Cemal Şan is a long sterile meditation on the alienation of lonely livıng in sterile modern high rise apartments in a faceless big city in which the main actress who is in nearly every scene is called upon to act like a zombie or cyborg throughout. The film follows heroine...

A Peek At The Main Festival Competition

 Tuesday, August 28--------Montreal has the distinction of being the only major film festival of the Fall season to have an awards competition. The Prix des Ameriques (Americas Prize) is quite the prestigious award and this year's World Competition Section lineup is the strongest in years. In the high stakes game of festival stragegy, itt is a given that if one premieres in Montreal, that Toronto (which begins a week from Thursday) is out. And while Toronto certainly commands a bigger profile, ...
