Andrei Tarkovsky In The New York Spotlight

There are few filmmakers more controversial or more "difficult" for mainstream audiences to appreciate than the Russian existential master Andrei Tarkovsky. His films are indeed an acquired taste, but for those willing to take the complex cinematic journeys, there are many rewards to be had. A Tarkovsky fan is indeed a Tarkovsky fanatic, and the Film Society of Lincoln Center in New York provides both devoted fans and those new to this important oeuvre a rare opportunity to sample the master's h...

Director: Cy Porter.

The Diamonds of Metro Valley

user
Director: Aaron Arendt.

Dr. Price is a brilliant scientist who has created the ultimate weapon, a Remote-Operated, Nocturnally Aggressive, Lizard Device (R.O.N.A.L.D.)  Once completed, it will be an unstoppable recovery and reconnaissance force, capable of evading high-tech security systems and taking down anyone in its way. But Price has a couple problems. He’s a junkie, he’s in debt to Jonas Caine, Metro Valley’s most powerful gangster who commissioned the weapon for a diamond heist, and the robot’s behavioral aspects are bit on the touchy side.

 

While Price works in the lab, Jonas Caine is cooking up the robbery plans with his Japanese counterpart, Tokyo crime-boss Takashi Sagawas. The diamonds, stolen from the Sagawas family several generations ago, are being stored in a secret Metro Valley location. As long as the R.O.N.A.L.D. cooperates, damage will be minimal, the crime will be untraceable, and everyone will get paid.

 

But when the R.O.N.A.L.D. is accidently activated after a routine drug exchange, and two cops are viciously killed in a dark inner-city alley, Price has no choice but to destroy the device to end the killing spree, and now has only days to recreate it.

Meanwhile Metro Valley police force Detectives Jarvish and Shortridge, slighted by their inability to arrest Caine in the past, hear rumors of the heist plans and start investigating. They suspect Caine is somehow tied to the unsolved alley murders as well, and sense a huge career-enhancing bust on their horizon.

With Metro Valley police detectives hot on the case and Caine threatening to kill him if he doesn’t meet the deadline by the night of the robbery, Price is under the gun to deliver a new and improved weapon, or figure out a way to pull off the heist himself!

 

The Diamonds of Metro Valley is inspired by diamond heist films of the 1970’s, but with an added tinge of the retro-futuristic.  Filmed almost entirely on green screen, the backgrounds for each scene were individually designed shot by shot. Exciting sequences include a twelve inch robot growing to the height of a three story building, numerous gun-battles and explosions, and a thirteen minute car chase created with model cars and live action. Several years in the making, each scene in DMV has been painstaking handcrafted with multiple design and digital effects elements, effectively contributing to the unique look of this hand-made, DIY project.
