Who would of thought Gallo could pull off such a feat! He is compelling in his role as Taliban on the run and while intim...

  PINK SARIS is easily one of the most interesting, relevant and fascinating documentaries I have ever seen. Kim Longinotto has pretty much raised the bar for all the documentaries that will be screening at the London Film Festival this year. Also, it is no wonder that it has been nominated for a few awards.  The film documents and celebrates Sampat Pal, a woman fighting social injustices towards women and girls in Northern India. And Sampat is more than deserving of th...

Fathers And Sons As A Potent Theme

 Saturday, September 15------The complex, competitive and ultimately loving relationship between fathers and their sons has been the potent theme of a number of films at this year's Toronto International Film Festival. Perhaps it is only my own personal taste (after all, in a sea of over 350 films, one chooses to take the journeys that most resonate with one's own sensibilities), but the theme came up again and again in a group of very different films.The struggle for reconciliation between a ...
