(Mr. Jones press conference, © Lindsay Bellinger 2019)   By LINDSAY R. BELLINGER   Agnieszka Holland's newest film Mr. Jones, written by Andrea Chalupa based off of her novel, is a wonderful piece of cinema and a history lesson all rolled up in one.

Norton portrays the Welsh journal...

Saturday night fever in Berlin

Feb. 09 ...actually Sunday, Feb. 10, at the wee hour of 2:14 AM... By Alex Deleon Crashed around midnight with the beginnings of a slight sore throat. Just what I don't need in the dead of Brrlinsky winter -- not yet gone viral, but just enough to awaken me, and realize the need for some hot tea and lemon ASAP.  Take lift down to lobby and young Russian guy on desk heats me up some water for chaï and cuts me half a lemon.

(Jonas Dassler and Fatih Akin, © Lindsay Bellinger 2019)   By LINDSAY R. BELLINGER   Many journalists were grumbling as they chatted with one another about their first impressions of Turkish-German filmmaker Fatih Akin's Der Goldene Handschuh (The Golden Glove), which runs in competition this year at the Berlin International Film Festival. It seems that some felt that there was unnecessary gore and violence with a plot that was not that substantial. That makes me wo...

Look back at the Opening Night at Berlin 69

By Alex Deleon Dieter Kosslick's Departure after 18 years as festival topper continues to be the talk of the town and the opening film, "The Kindness of Strangers" was more kinky than kindly, not the best choice, to say the least.  (Haven't  I heard that song somewhere before?)
