Half Songs, Review: Melodies of nostalgia, dew-drops of sublime love

Half%20Songs%2C%20Poster.jpg
Half Songs, Review: Melodies of nostalgia, dew-drops of sublime love A simple tale, with few characters, executed with wholesome grace, Half Songs strikes a chord with its theme of incomplete, or ‘half’, human relations and endeavours, in the backdrop of modern urban life, juxtaposed with an era just gone by. A fresh, new team brings a dew-drop quality to the images and performances. No real hero or heroine, no comedian, no villain, no real character actor, no item numbers, but ye...

Simmba, Review: Slo mo shun It would be unrealistic to expect anything but action comedies from director Rohit Shetty, showcasing bad guys turning good guys along the line, with tons of slow motion action, having the protagonist landing blow after blow, and the goons rotating before landing on the floor or table or chair or cupboard or door or window or car or cycle or motor-cycle or truck or hand cart or whatever. This time around, the theme, ostensibly, is the heinous crime of rape, with t...

The 2019 Sundance Film Festival Visual Identity

SFF19-Blog-GIF.gif
Greatness is rarely birthed in places of comfort. As the saying goes, “No risk, no reward.” Whereas comfort is often born, bred, and laid to rest in one place, risk is an expedition into infinity. It is, as Sundance Institute President and Founder Robert Redford has said, “the catalyst that propels you forward,” and the beacon that guides artists back to their core. In many ways, risk is the unlikely hero that unites artist and audience. Risk binds us. For an artist to ...

His treatise was devoted to the study of sexuality and its denial in Christianity.     ...

THE CREEPY LINE a film by M.A.Taylor 2018

"A film that Google does not want you to see  - filmfestivals.com Best for Fest"

An eye-opening documentary, The Creepy Line reveals the stunning degree to which society is manipulated by Google and Facebook and blows the lid off the remarkably subtle – hence powerful – manner in which they do it.

The Creepy Line is a title culled from the words of former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, when during a 2010 interview he explained Google’s code of conduct: “The Google policy on a lot of things is to get right up to the creepy line and not cross it.”

However, as Dr. Robert Epstein explains in the film, “Google crosses the creepy line every day”. 

Offering first-hand accounts, scientific experiments and detailed analysis, The Creepy Line examines what is at risk when these two tech titans have free reign to utilize the public’s most private and personal data to manipulate society.

There is no question that the “creepy line” is getting ever-creepier, and that the tech giants have crossed it.

Ce fut alors à Robert Wiene que le travail échut...
