user
Danny Boyle's 127 Hours did the red carpet at Sydney's Event Cinema, George Street, Sydney earlier this evening. The highly acclaimed film has been nominated for six 2011 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor in a Leading Role (for James Franco) and Best Adapted Screenplay (for Danny Boyle and Simon Beaufoy).   The Fox Searchlight flick tells the story of Aron Ralston, the mountain climber who amputated his own arm to free himself after being trapped by ...

BFI London Film Festival Award Winners

user
  The BFI London Film Festival held a special awards ceremony on Wednesday evening to honor films and personalities that have made this year’s LFF the most attended in the Festival’s long history. HOW I ENDED THIS SUMMER by Russian director Alexei Popogrebsky, was awarded the Best Film prize in an unexpected shocker (buzz in the air was that the award would go to perennial Mike Leigh for his film ANOTHER YEAR). The film observes the intense relationship between two men who wor...

London Film Festival Points To The Oscars

user
  Inevitably, any major film festival that occurs in the Fall season has a role play in determining eventual Oscar nominees and even winners. It all starts off at the Venice and Toronto film festivals, where Oscar hopefuls get their debuts, and continues into the season, presumably climaxing with nominations that come at the first of the year. With the Academy’s recent expansion of the Best Picture category to include 10 films, it is very likely that several of the films present...

user
  Despite the current successes of such UK exports as NEVER LET ME GO by Mark Romanek and NOWHERE MAN by Sam Taylor-Wood and the highly anticipated new entry in the mega-successful HARRY POTTER series opening next month, the British film industry is rather in the doldrums. The ending of key tax credits and the shuttering of the UK Film Council (accused of lavish lunches and other extravagances in a period of austerity)  has given pessimism the upper hand in British film circles. Of...

The Loss Of Innocence At TIFF

user
  Yesterday was September 11th, and again I find myself in the city of Toronto, as I did in 2001......when the planes crashed, the towers fell, the buildings burned and America lost its innocence. It was a very strange place to be back then, in the midst of covering a film festival, while one's city was in chaos. For those of us from New York, there was a shared concern about the loss of loved ones, the security of our friends and family and the frustrations of not being able to place p...
