The Bang Bang Club is the true story about four, free spirited combat photographers with a passion for danger and search for the truth during the uprisings in apartheid South Africa from Nelson Mandela’s release from serving a life sentence in prison on February 11, 1990, to the first democratic election in 1994, in which he became President until 1999. Follow these fearless young men as they demonstrate bravery, camaraderie, and moral turpitude, in the heart of the apartheid riots and “tr...

Commentary - Win Win & Tom McCarthy Q & A

user
TO READ POST WITH ACCOMPANYING PHOTOS VISIT TINSEL & TINE  Tom McCarthy (The Station Agent, The Visitor) has once again written and directed a picture that’s been touted at the festivals; however, his newest film has enough mainstream appeal to be backed by Fox Searchlight Pictures. Win Win is the story of an attorney, wrestling coach and most importantly, family man, Mike Flaherty (Paul Giamatti) living in a middle class Jersey suburb trying to keep things going in these diffic...

Cunning Linguistics by Kimberly Deisler

user
      If you’re reading this, chances are you know what to expect; smart-ass remarks, a turn of a phrase and a decent amount of cleverly placed sarcasm and profanity, which is why I so enjoy the Independent Spirit Awards.  Spirited aptly describes the entire day from weather to wardrobe, from nominees to winners, from one open bar to the next with Jameson shots and Stella Artois chasers, some sponsor favorites among many a guest.  But the flowing alcohol certainly wasn’t needed to loo...

Waving the Flag

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...

Mariam's Amazing Race to Cannes: Day 11 part 2

user
I have never been on a airline like Ryan Air. Getting on the plane was pretty much standard, but once I sat down, I knew it was going to be different. After all the carry-on luggage was placed in the overhead bins and the attendants closed the doors, I could see advertisements down the length of the plane, like on a public bus. Half way through the flight, there was an announcement and the attendants walked through the plane offering special Ryan Air scratch-off lotto tickets for $1 Euro each....

Interview with Alan Berliner (wide awake)

user
During the San Francisco International Film Festival, Susan Tavernetti spoke with Alan Berliner about his intriguing new documentary, WIDE AWAKE. The first-person film offers an understanding of insomnia in cinematic terms, inventively tossing and turning through the sleepless nights and bleary days of Berliner’s world while he ruminates on the topic. Nominated for the Sundance Grand Jury Prize, the multi-layered work is a delightful collage of interviews, dream interpretation, quirky arcs of ...

A Conversation With Danish filmmaker Jorgen Leth

user
Jorgen Leth interview by Wendy Dent Festival dei Popoli, Florence 7 December 2005WD: This festival was very unique in that it expanded my definitions of what documentary is and this is what stunned me about your films, is they were staged and it really broadened my idea of what documentary is but made me wonder where is the line, where is the definition? Once you start to have actors and you make a comment about society, but even drama is a comment on humanity so I am wondering what you feel abo...
