AFM Day 4-5: Adrien Brody's WRECKED Sells

AFM Day 4-5: Adrien Brody's WRECKED Sells, Where Not to Film, Mini-Moguls Speakby Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent "Expected to be released in theatres in 2011" might be the most ominous phrase coming out of the 31st American Film Market, which closes on Nov. 10. It's the expectations of buyers and sellers that indicate we're in a worldwide down economy, with many expecting the worst. Not so if you are Adrien Brody, steeped in Oscar potential; and even if your film is WRECKED, som...

Arpafilm festival in LA focuses on film from Armenia

user
13TH ARPA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL IN L.A."AGHET, a German View of a Turkish Genocide"by Alex Deleon, for ARPA is the name of the river that flows through Yerevan, the capital of the free Armenian Republic, which until 1991 was part of the former Soviet Union. Consequently, it is not surprising that an international film festival so-named is primarily (although not entirely) concerned with the presentation of films from Armenia, films dealing with Armenian topics, and/or films made by Armen...

"Tarantino's  GLOURIOS BURSTERDS" Grokked at ODEON Muswell Hill, London, Tues. August 25, 2009   I have never been a great Quentin Tarantino fan ( I hated "Pulp Fiction" and walked out of "Reservoir Dogs") but right off the bat I will have to say that even if he doesn't get an Oscar this year, Mr. Q.  should at least get a medal -  the Congressional Medal of Honour  (of Poland and Israel?) - for telling it like it should have been, ev...

“Tarantino’s GLOURIOS BURSTERDS”

user
I have never been a great Quentin Tarantino fan ( I hated “Pulp Fiction” and walked out of “Reservoir Dogs”) but right off the bat I will have to say that even if he doesn’t get an Oscar this year, Mr. Q. should at least get a medal – the Congressional Medal of Honour (of Poland and Israel?) – for telling it like it should have been, even if it wasn’t quite actually that way. Any person of Jewish persuasion who does not stand up and cheer at various points in this tremendous...

Marcel Marceau: The Mime of the Millenium

 Tuesday, October 9-------Although he was not strictly an actor, nor was his work in films his most enduring legacy, it is important nevertheless to mark the passing of Marcel Marceau, the internationally famous French pantomimist, who died at the age of 84 on September 24th. Although his visage was one of the most famous in international culture, it was ironically always obscured by his trademark white makeup. Few except close associates would even recognize the man outside of his mime person...

BARBICAN YIDDISH RETRO, '96

user
Chaim Pevner, Film CriticFILM NOTES TO THE BARBICAN YIDDISH FILM RETROSPECTIVE(London, October 12-24, 1996) THE YIDDISH language cinema is nearly unique among world cinema cultures in that it had no specific homeland.  Yiddish films, including “silent Yiddish” films, were produced wherever there were major Yiddish speech communities and a Yiddish theatrical circuit  from which  talent could be recruited.  The majority of Yiddish language films were therefore made in New York or in P...

Nanking '37 at Seattle '07 Shocking reconstruction of the rape of a city

user
Directed in tandem by Bill Gutenburg and Dan Sturman, "NANKING" (USA 2007, RT, 91 minutes, in Mandarin, English and Japanese) is a startling and shocking reconstruction of a gigantic atrocity perpetrated by the Japanese army in China nearly 70 years ago, but presented in part by leading actors as if it were taking place today. The result, graphically depicting the sack and destruction of the city along with the indiscriminate bestial massacre of just about the entire civilian population, is a p...

Rediscovering German Cinema Classics

Wednesday, June 6------Film festivals are all about discovery......of newly emerging filmmakers or the latest films from acknowledged film masters. However, the best festivals also take a look backward, to celebrate the accomplishments of cinema giants long since past, and through this showcase bring to light "lost" films for a new generation of film lovers. Such is the case with Festroia's program of ten classic German feature films, a collaboration between the Festival and the G...

20th Festival of Nordic Cinema in Rouen

user
The 20th edition of this specialized festival in north-western France (March 21-- April 01, 2007) was a bit of a disappointment this year in terms of competition films and visiting personalities, at least compared to the four previous times I have made it my business to be here. In the past there have always been unusual films in the competition section and visitations by major figures, actors and/or directors, from the countries covered here, which includes, incidentally, Belgium, Holland and...

The ambience is eerie. Where are we? In the kingdom of the dead? Well...
