Pegase, a new Moroccan film got wings

    Zineb: ‘Do you like living this way? ‘   Rihanna: ‘Yes. Because I can feel the ground. Not like me'   Then Rihanna begs to be left alone so she can ‘dream'.   When I met director Mohamed Mouftakir we were sitting next to each other in Dubai at the 7th Dubai film festival during the premier to another North African film. At the end of that film I asked Mohamed if he liked it. He said, ‘no' because it was to...

AFIFEST day 2 Los Angeles: Its Character and its Characters

user
Way before Hollywood colonized the Southland, before even the Spanish Missionaries came to spread the word of God, the Tongva Indian tribe inhabited Los Angeles. As with most Indian tribes, they had a very close - almost spiritual - connection to the land. A simple "nga" sound gave words a sense of place. While we've inherited names like Cahuenga (the place of the mountain), Topanga (where the mountain meets the sea) and Tujunga (the place of the old woman), the city has most certainly...

NY Film Festival 2006: Postmodern Menagerie

user
This festival continues as an upscale, boutique film venture for cinephiles, with only 25 features and innovative sidebars--including a critical overview of foreign filmmakers, with respect to both new filmmaking approaches and new subjects. Other major fests love red carpets, pay respect to commercial consideration and defer to megalomaniac growth desires; they need to present as many new films as possible, to have a large contingent of buyers and distributors, and to secure a sizable prese...

CAREER RETROSPECTIVE: THE DAVID LYNCH FILMOGRAPHY (SECTION 3)

user
While "Blue Velvet" could be the most structurally complete Lynchian vision, "Wild at Heart" could be considered his most accesible. For me, this is the perfect culmination of everything I love about Lynch. The previous themes exist here, too, but they are more deeply felt than they've ever been before. Like "Blue Velvet", the film is about extremes -- love and violence, darkness and light, sanity and madness. But this film takes those extremes even further - the colors and the characters are...

CAREER RETROSPECTIVE: THE DAVID LYNCH FILMOGRAPHY (SECTION 2)

user
These themes continued and matured with his feature debut, Erasurehead. The story of a new father and factory worker who lives among the hydraulic drone of an industrialized town, Lynch sheds light on the fear inherent in first-time fatherhood. The father is himself, as are many characters from Lynch films, like a newborn baby in adult form -- an outsider who is at once curious and unnerved by the world around him. The baby in the film is a mutation and all it knows how to do is cry; in other w...

CAREER RETROSPECTIVE: THE DAVID LYNCH FILMOGRAPHY

"Many of the things that you subconsciously use in painting you use in film." - David Lynch interview from documentary 'Pretty As a Picture' The canvas was slathered in rich black with oversized deep green blades of grass eminating upward from the bottom edge. David Lynch could imagine the sound of the wind as it caused the greenery to rustle and sway. He wanted to make the scene come to life for real. It was in that moment that he became a film director. And thirty years after reaching this...
