THE INVOCATION, interview with Emmanuel Itier and Claude-Budin Juteau

user
The film THE INVOCATION (2010) is one of the most enterprising documentaries to come out of the past year, tackling the endlessly debated question: is world peace possible? Many contest that human nature is conflict and thus war is and always will be inevitable. But others maintain that peace indeed is possible, and THE INVOCATION explores how. These filmmakers, Emmanuel Itier and Claude Budin-Juteau, took it upon themselves to travel all around the world speaking to some of the most important f...

Errol Morris' Tabloid Tale

user
  Oscar winning documentarian Errol Morris has had more than his share of interesting interview subjects in his 30 year plus career, but perhaps none is quite as gonzo as the one he captures in his new film TABLOID, which opens in limited release in North America this week (and is available on most VOD platforms). The film focuses on the bizarre-but-true story of Joyce McKinney, a former Miss Wyoming beauty queen who became a notorious tabloid sensation in the 1970s when she snatched her...

user
Does the Noise in My Head Bother You? is the  rock memoir of Grammy Award-winning,  Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame inductee Steven Tyler, lead singer of Aerosmith (and celebrity judge on American Idol) which I've been watching late night on telly. He's sweet, ditto Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson, you couldn't say the same thing about Simon Cowell who was fun to watch anyway. Last time I saw Cowell chat with  Jay Leno and Piers Morgan, he'd  talked about giving 5 million USD prize m...

Cinfest 2011 Closing Ceremonies

user
Cinefest 2011 Closing Night I often find at the end of a film festival, some of the films I chose to see will unintentionally deal with the same topic on some level: Brother & Sister, Terri and Vampire all dealt with care for an elderly parent, two of which had Alzheimer's. Womb explored an Oedipal complex and Brother & Sister performed a staged version of Oedipus. If I thought about it longer, I'm sure I'd find more cross references. I enjoyed my movie date...

TO READ POST WITH ACCOMPANYING PHOTOS VISIT TINSEL & TINE  Tom McCarthy (The Station Agent, The Visitor) has once again written and directed a picture that’s been touted at the festivals; however, his newest film has enough mainstream appeal to be backed by Fox Searchlight Pictures.

At the end of that film I asked Mohamed if he liked it. He said, ‘no' because it was to...
