Francophrenia: James Franco Unsheltered

user
Tribeca Film Festival By Ioannis Pappos In quantum laboratories around the world you can see an object in two different places at once. Yes, at the same time. Laugh, I used to, but quantum physics is a radical science. I studied electrical engineering, was taught Heisenberg’s theory that atoms are not things but rather tendencies, and still I can’t totally believe that one object can be in more than one place at the same time. Heisenberg was the first paradox in my adult life, so...

Comic-Con IV: A Fan's Hope

Morgan Spurlock is the the greatest example of a filmmaker who thinks outside the box and has the imagination and inspiration of a true artist. I compare him to the artist Andy Warhol because he sees what others may view but his artistic talent allows him to create something unique. Perhaps his determination to be a filmmaker after being rejected by the USC film school several times but finally making the cut at the NYU film school opened his eyes in a ...

VOLCANO at 23rd PSIFF

VOLCANO (ELDFJALL, Iceland, 2011), Iceland's official Oscar entry for 2012 screened this week at the 23rd Palm Springs International Film Festival.  Few films can boast such raw and gritty realism as VOLCANO (ELDFJALL, Iceland, 2011).
