Monday, January 15----Mike White, whose off-kilter humor and perceptive writing made such films as CHUCK AND BUCK and THE GOOD GIRL major Sundance discoveries of the past few years, is back in Park City with an auspicious directorial debut, YEAR OF THE DOG. In this richly crafted tale of self-discovery, White invests his characters and their comedic confusion with a poignant and compassionate touch that has pundits dubbing the film as next season's LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE. Not only has White c...

Anthony Hopkins Makes His Directorial Debut

Friday, January 12----What do you do when you have won every acting accolade there is, including the coveted Oscar for an iconic role (that people will still be talking about 100 years from now)....direct an independent feature, of course. That is the decision made by Anthony Hopkins, whose Oscar-winning turn as Hannibal Lecter in Jonathan Demme's THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, is the stuff of legend. After more than 100 feature and television films in a 40 year career, Hopkins (at the ripe young a...

The New York Jewish Film Festival: A Catered Affair For All Tastes

Tuesday, January 9----It is often said, and I would be a fool to disagree, that anyone who lives in New York City long enough becomes a kind of “honorary Jew”. Whether it is an uncontrollable yen for matzoh ball soup, a love of klezmer (Jewish soul) music, or a few Yiddishims creeping into everyday speech, New Yorkers are in spirit, if not in reality, more than just a little bit Jewish. Therefore, the 16th Annual New York Jewish Film Festival, which opens tomorrow and runs through January ...

Remembering An Artist And A Gambler

Saturday, January 6----It is going to take a long time to get over the loss of such a monumental and influential film talent as Robert Altman. The maverick director, who was one of the few to move in and out of both the Hollywood studio system and the independent film world, and yet remain true to his own vision and artistic process, is already sorely missed. To reacquaint a new generation with the astonishing diverse films of his career, The IFC Center, one of New York's most ambitious cathed...

Five Directors Compete for Sundance Travel Package

Friday, January 5----Pity the poor independent filmmaker who is trying to go to the Sundance Film Festival on the cheap. The Festival has become an industry must, so film distributors, production executives, talent agents and other professionals (all with expense accounts) tend to gobble up almost all the available hotel and condo space, the best tables at restaurants, and the other amenities that exist in crowded Park City. Filmmakers on a budget need to be creative, and this year, official ...

An Embrace Between Dance and Film

Thursday, January 4-----Annie Leibovitz, the superstar photographer, has famously said that dance is the one medium that is almost impossible to correctly capture via the still photograph. Because of its key element, movement in space, it is much better suited for the moving picture format. That speaks directly to lovers of dance and dance on film who should revel in the Dance on Camera Festival, which premieres this week at New York’s Walter Reade Theater. Screenings continue this week thro...
