IFFBoston 2009 - Opening Night & The Brothers Bloom

user
The seventh annual Independent Film Festival Boston kicked off on Wednesday night with Rian Johnson’s The Brothers Bloom, a romance tucked inside a comedy couched within a confidence scheme (a rom-com-con?).  The romance, predictably, grows between a mark and one of the con men.  The comedy is unexpected and liberally sprinkled throughout.  While not integral to the plot, the humor is always welcome, never off mark and adds appreciably to the appeal of the film.  The cons begin when the ...

Rialto Cinema Classics At MoMA

Monday, July 23-------You may think you know the film that many major film critics chose as the best of last year. But in reality, with little fanfare or certainly Oscar buzz, the film that garnered the most uniform praise from top film scribes was a French thriller, shot in 1959 and set in occupied France during World War II by a director who has been six feet under for more than three decades. That film, ARMY OF SHADOWS, directed by Jean-Pierre Melville, was an astonishingly gritty and involvi...

user
THE ELITE: In a career teeming with brilliant work, these are Al Pacino's greatest films. The Godfather: This is where the legacy begins, both of the greatest one-two punch in film history and Pacino's stellar career. Pacino first plays the highly moral idealist Michael sheepishly, until he subtly morphs into a cold-blooded gangster right before your eyes. It is the most amazing transformation ever portrayed in the cinema; made all the more powerful because you barely register it happening. A+ ...
