A Daughter’s Love of her Father in The Sicilian Girl

I went to a very special presentation at the Italian Cultural Institute in Westwood of this very touching film which was based on the real life of Rita Mancuso (Veronica D’Agostino) and director Marco Amenta’s documentary , “One Girl Against the Mafia: Diary of a Sicilian Rebel”. Being a dad myself I could feel the inner conflict that this young girl would suffer when she loses her dad and also has to face the reality of who he really was. Dads love their daughters and always want to ...

Partial Creation of "Fetish" with Joan Collins by Charles Casillo

#
It was 1 am on a frigid February morning and Joan Collins’ boots were getting a haircut. We were supposed to shoot the outdoor scene earlier in the day but because of the non-stop snowstorm, filming kept being delayed. A team of crew members continuously shoveled the balcony and tried to keep the ground dry–all the better to keep legendary goddess from being electrocuted while shooting. As the snow fell and the city came to a halt, the lights were being set up by the grips and electrical dep...

The Imaginarium of Anastasia Masaro

user
 Interview with Production Designer Anastasia Masaro on The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus (2009). Other than being the last film that Oscar winning actor Heath Ledger acted in, this has to be one of the most visually stunning films I've ever seen. David Lynch and Tim Burton have some serious rivalry here on cinematic surrealism. The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus (2009) is like a walk through a Dali meets Ernst painting, on Absinthe!  ME: Hi Anastasia, thank you so much for taking time to...

Another day, another red carpet in Aruba

You gotta love a little glam. "Bring it, girl!" my friend told me, as I raced to Aruba.  And the festival team 'brought it' too. So many red carpets, it turned the little island of Aruba into a little slice of Cannes on the Caribbean.        My editor, a seasoned carpet walker at Cannes, showed his sophistication by casually commenting on opening night in his suave French accent "yes it is a very good red carpet, it is so comfortable to walk o...

Adventures in ARRRRUUUUBBAAA!!

The party didn't stop at the red carpet... From a week of whacky island adventures off the road in Aruba, to cocktail parties till late - it was hard to get much reviewing done, I was having too much fun. I quickly had to master the art of speaking eloquently about international cinema whilst balancing a plate of hors doevres and a glass of Moet in one hand, and a designer handbag in the other- and they don't teach you that in film school. A simple slideshow of sun and cinema, Aruba styl...
