Diorama, New Delhi, January 2019: Films screened and their ratings

Diorama, New Delhi, January 2019: Films screened and their ratings In cold New Delhi, the iconic Siri Fort was the venue for the first ever Diorama International Film Festival. What was once a single screen venue has burgeoned into a four screen complex, with the largest of them, Auditorium 1, able to accommodate approximately 2,000 persons.  Audi 1 was sparingly used, and rightly so, because audiences were thin, to say the least. Of the other three, Auditorium 4 was largely used as the ...

The 3rd Orange City International Film Festival (OCIFF) begins from February 7 in Nagpur and will go on till February 10. This time there has been less buzz about the festival for some reason. The OCIFF 2019 will be inaugurated by the city's Guardian Minister Chandrashekhar Bawankule on February 7 at 5 pm IST at the Persistent Systems auditorium in Nagpur, following which the opening film My Own Good (Italian), directed by Pippo Mezzapesa, will be screened.

Review of "Aziza" + Interview with Sundance Grand Jury Prize Winner, Soudade Kaadan

  I had the honor this week to connect with the incredibly talented, Short Film Grand Jury Prize Winner, Soudade Kaadan. Her story may be one of the most important in the whole festival. As a Syrian filmmaker, she has experienced more hardships than any American filmmaker can imagine. She does not have nearly the same resources as many of her competitors yet she still manages to make high caliber film that is enjoyable even without its profound political context.   Her fil...

"Honey Boy" - Review

The U.S. Dramatic Special Jury Award for Vision and Craft winner, Honey Boy was the true winner of Sundance. No movie will come out of the festival with more hype than Honey Boy. This heart wrenching, semi-biographical account of fatherly abuse touched the hearts of many. It screened to multiple standing ovations and was nearly impossible to watch with packed tents full of eager cinephiles lined up in hopes of seeing Shia LaBeouf’s latest masterpiece. Personally, I tried a total of four ...

"Big Time Adolescence" - Review From Sundance

First time director Jason Orley, alongside budding star Pete Davidson, unleash an emotionally draining yet cheerfully humorous coming of age story with Big Time Adolescence. The film leaves you both regretting the terrible decisions of your youth while longing for those days at the same time. It ultimately asks the question if bad decisions as an adolescent are a healthy, normal part of life, or pitfalls we ought to avoid. Big Time Adolescence is the type of movie that just may blow up as a ...

"Little Monsters" - Review from Sundance

In a festival full of artistically layered and creatively structured films, Abe Forsythe’s Little Monsters stands out by telling a classic three-act narrative with predictable beats that lead to an ending we’ve all seen before. Usually, that would not be a compliment in my book, however, this film executes it’s ‘save the cat’ style story to perfection. It gives the audience everything they want in a film. It is chock-full of humor that has the crowd boisterous thr...

"The Farewell" - Review from Sundance

As a Chinese-American filmmaker myself, there is a special place in my heart for Chinese-American film. The consistently negative depictions of Asians in American film-culture instilled a sense of shame in me that translated to hiding the fact that I was Asian from many people up until early adulthood. Being mixed, that was generally not too difficult and it was an easier way to navigate life. The only way to truly fix this problem is by people like Lulu Wang succeeding. She absolutely does so...

"The Last Black Man in San Francisco" - Review from Sundance

Not many movies can move at a sedated pace without putting the majority of the audience to sleep. Joe Talbot’s Last Black Man on Earth is the rare exception. The film flows like the still waters of the San Francisco Bay, by telling a melancholic story of gentrification and the pain that losing a childhood home brings. It is a beautiful depiction of poverty and class struggle that teaches those who have not personally experienced gentrification, what it feels like to be backed into a corn...
