RIP Sally, Tarantino's long-term editor passed away

user
Good grief what a manic few days it has been here in Film Doctor world. Goodness knows how I managed to slip some PhD work in today during an otherwise manic day (had loads to sort out re Abertoir & film production shoot). One thing which happened this week that actually made me stop what I was doing for 15 minutes (and just not do anything) was when I heard the tragic news about Sally Menke, Tarantino's long-term editor. That woman is by far the most amazing editor in the worl...

Waving the Flag

user
Another day, another Tarantino google news alert in my in-box informing me that QT has been accused of eating one of my superb chocolates…. Over the past few days I have received 25 e-mails that he’s been accused by the Italian press of favouritism. However that’s all everyone is saying – no further analysis or investigation has been performed, so, I’m going to give my opinion on it - From one perspective you could say I am biased as I’m a fan, but this is a purely neutral v...

Is the film "Precious" Patronizing?

user
My friend, Ellen told me she was having a discussion with a neighbor about Precious and this person said they felt the film was patronizing. She in turn asked me if I thought so too? My response: I know the definition of the word "patronizing", but how would I put it in my own words - when someone feels superior in some manner and gives due or agrees with someone else, for that other person's benefit, but not because they really feel it. Since the film "Precious" is...

Welcome to San Sebastian... Don't Forget Your Umbrella!

Oh, how I love film festivals. Or, more precisely, how I love when they invade the town that I call home. My first festival was Toronto: I worked as a volunteer behind the scenes, showing people to their seats.

Cannes was all glamor and sparkle: we waited for weeks as we learnd which films would be premiering there, who would be coming. We watched as the red carpet wa...
