A look back on Tokyo fest 2011

~THE YEAR OF THE QUAKE ~by Alex DeleonNot to forget that this was the year of the Great March 11 Earthquake cum nuclear disaster and "Tsunami" Tidal Wave that washed away whole cities up north, the 24th Tokyo Intl Film festival was a somewhat restrained affair with the lingering effect of the disaster in evidence in various forms, toning down the overall climate of festivity. Right outside the entrance to the main tower housing the festival offices was a green collection booth where passers by w...

ADALBERT'S DREAM by Romanian filmmaker Gabriel Achim  When I met Romanian director Gabriel Achim, we had just pruned together for hours in Iceland's famed Blue Lagoon thermal baths, so needless to say we were dehydrated, uber relaxed and giddy. I asked him why he was at RIFF and he explained, 'Well, I'm a Romanian director'. I told him I knew lots of great Romanian directors and then he, ever so humbly, assured me that he was the worst Romanian director that exists. I laughed and I think t...
