River to River, the changing face of Bollywood, WASSEYPUR, in your face with a vengeance

by Alex Deleon for <filmfestivals.com>   Take that you bloody muthe$&£$%*er!   The main Indian features seen this year at Florence, "The Gangs of Wasseypur" and "Chittagong", are Bollywood productions in the sense that both are made in Hindi (rather than one of India's other 21 official languages) with professional Bombay performers and staff, but the content, style, and conception of these films seems t...

The ending of key tax credits and the shuttering of the UK Film Council (accused of lavish lunches and other extravagances in a period of austerity)  has given pessimism the upper hand in British film circles. Of...

The Guardian were not overly-impressed as they criticised it for, essentially, just being a hybrid of Sundance, Cannes, Tribeca, Venice & Toronto’s key films. Although this is true from the looks of their big films, I can guarantee you that there will be a few hidden gems somewhere within their schedule – you just have to find them. Its a bit like a treasure hunt I guess! (Al...

The poem's author, the beat poet Allen Ginsberg, remained a controversial figure his entire life. The impact of this envelope-pushing literary classic and the bohemian philosopher...
