SOMEWHERE (Sofia Coppola) added to the LFF programme

#
    The BFI has added the latest award-winning feature by Sofia Coppola - SOMEWHERE - having won the Golden Lion for Best Film in Venice, now it will have it's UK premiere at the LFF.  SOMEWHERE is the story of Johnny Marco (Stephen Dorff) is a bad-boy actor stumbling through a life of excess (frenzied girls, booze and cars) at the Chateau Marmont Hotel, totally disconnected from the real life.

LFF - HEARTBEATS (Les Amours Imaginaires) [2010] dir Xavier Dolan

#

With no time lost, they both fall in love with Nicolas. Nicolas does not show preference for either, being ambiguous throughout.

LFF - IT'S KIND OF A FUNNY STORY [2010] dir Ryan Fleck & Anna Boden

#
 IT'S KIND OF A FUNNY STORY is most probably the best example of the culmination of every Hollywood studio's "indie film branch" teenage crisis movie ever made. It tells the story of Craig (Keir Gilchrist), a 16-year old teenager who is engulfed by depression and when is on the way to attempt suicide, decides to go check himself into a psych ward of the local hospital instead. He then is committed for a minimum of five days and guided by the seemingly normal Bobby (Zach Galifianak...

LFF - LIVING ON LOVE ALONE (D'Amour et D'Eau Fraiche) [2010] dir Isabelle Czajka

#
 LIVING ON LOVE ALONE is an interesting film; it follows Julie as she goes from a bad job in PR to a bad one in sales to a love affair. Julie is seeking employment in the hippest PR agency in Paris and when she finally gets it, we can watch disappointment creeping slowly, as she fails from task to task, the job being a complete let down for her. Next, she tries sales. A panel of judges whom she has a job interview with tell her that she must demonstrate selling potential and to go next door to ...

LFF - WHAT I LOVE THE MOST (Lo Que Mas Quiero) [2010] dir Delfina Castanigno

#
 WHAT I LOVE THE MOST is an assured debut by former assistant/editor Delfina Castanigno. Assured because of the risks she takes; the sort of story the film tells, the way it was structured and the way she chose to shoot it all.   The film is about two unnamed friends, one lives in the South of Argentina and just lost her father, the other comes visit from Buenos Aires taking a break from her boyfriend of 4 years. The film's structure seems to be chronological, but there is no way of knowing ...

LFF - A SCREAMING MAN (Un Homme Qui Crie) [2010] dir Mahamat Saleh-Haroun

#
 A SCREAMING MAN is most definitely a very beautifully shot piece of cinema. It tells the story of Adam, a former swimming champion and now pool attendant at a hotel taken over by the Chinese (personified through Mrs Wang), who thinks of the pool side as his life. His 20-year old son, Abdel, is his assistant and loves taking pictures of everything around him. However, war is raging outside of N'Djamena and when Adam is not able to contribute to the war effort with money, he is threatened wi...
