Sun And Celluloid: Palm Beach International Film Festival

A playground for the rich and famous for more than a century, Palm Beach (and its sister city West Palm Beach and surrounding towns Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Lake Worth and others) has also built its reputation over the years as a place of cultural excellence and diversity. Those qualities are on abundant display as the Palm Beach Internat...

Karlovy Vary: Jacqueline Bisset and Luc Besson are no show

user
Actress Jacqueline Bisset and French director Luc Besson called in their regrets, cancelling their expected visit to Karlovy Vary, but the celebrity slack has been taken up by the arrival of somewhat less shining lights of interest, and the party scene surges on unabated. The latest arrival was rapidly rising British actress Saffron Burrows, here to present her new film "Gangster No. 1" which, she says, is perhaps too violent for her own taste. I‘m worried about the audience watching it today,...

Andy Garcia Special Guest of Karlovy Vary Fest

Andy Garcia Special Guest of Karlovy Vary Fest and a Touch of Class with Jacqueline Bisset Andy Garcia, Cuban born actor (Havana, 1956) will be honored with a career award and will also present his hotly awaited new film "Lost City" this week in Karlovy Vary. The film, which deals with the rise of Fidel Castro, has raised hackles in certain circles because of the less than sympathetic light in which Counter-Culture and perennial youth hero, Che Guevara, is shown among other things. However, And...

The rythm of The Lost City

user
Did you ever see Bill Murray do the salsa? Or the mambo, rumba or any of that other Latin stuff? Well, let me tell you something. The guy’s got rhythm. I couldn’t help myself watching him in awe as he steered his way around the dance floor with a couple of breathless women. So, thinking I should get a firsthand experience, I navigated through the crowd of undulating bodies in a hope of being next in line. But woe is me, the music suddenly ended and Bill slipped off the floor.I found him in a...

Out of competition films: Final Fantasy VII, Advent Children, Tsui Harks Seven Swords (Qi jian), the opening film , and The Art of Love, Mine Ha Ha by John Irvin set the Venezia 62 in motion August 31.

Seven Swords is concerned with the origins of martial arts in 1600 China when peasants wanted to defend themselves from rogue bandits. Both Charlie Young and Honglei Sun evoke the stro...

KVIFF 04 ambiance

Karlovy Vary 2004 – The atmosphere this year around the Hotel Thermal was electric, something like Time Square on a busy evening, (and the comparison is not that excessive!) especially outside the main entrance to the Velky Sal. Live music was continuously played on stage where crowds of youngsters gathered to drink, cheer, and indulge in what is surely one of the highlights of the Czech social calendar attended by international showbiz figures such as Elijah Wood, Harvey Keitel, John Cleese o...
