Hot Summer Days are the best

user
Hot Summer Days reminds me very much of a Woody Allen film shot in Hong Kong.Perhaps he will take the hint after his sees this film and shoot his next one there. As you watch all these characters, you could easily start casting actors that Woody has used in many of his films. This film really touched me and the direction by Wing Shya and Tony Chanorchestrated with a fast pace and quick flashes with a music video feel will keep your interest. Writers Chan and Lucretia Ho created a script with all...

Penelopa

Director: Ben Ferris.
“There are Two Gates of Disembodied Dreams: The Gate of Horn and the Gate of Ivory. Those dreams that reach us through carved ivory bring words that damage us…But dreams that take the Gate of Polished Horn…do foretell what is in truth to come.” [Penelope, Book 19 ‘The Odyssey’ of Homer] Penelope, the mythical character from Homer’s The Odyssey, is waiting for her husband Odysseus to return from war. In this film adaptation, set in a mythic time and space, with contemporary influences and attitudes, Penelope is both archetype and human being. She wanders alone through the halls of her castle, each room a different memory. In these rooms she has visions of her husband, as past, present and future become indistinguishable from each other. Her visions are an escape from the loneliness of the present and increasingly dislocate her from the world around her: the companionship of her maidservants and the feasting mythical suitors who have gathered in her halls.

World Premiere of Spanish-Mexican feature 3:19 Full of Heartwarming Synchronicity

Chance and Happenstance, the World Premiere of the Spanish Film 3:19  by Felicia TomaskoOn a whim, we walked into one of the screenings of the world premiere of 3:19. The danger is that this story could be depressing. After all, it takes its title from the Genesis passage ending “for dust you are and to dust you will return.” One 26-year-old member of a trio of friends is dying of terminal cancer. While this story of friendship, love and loss could conceivably be dark and mournful, director...
