The event has been going on for 19 years now and alway...

Oliver Assayas: Post-Punk Auteur

user
  In CARLOS, the riveting and expansive 5 1/2-hour biopic of the charismatic 1970s terrorist Ilich Ramirez Sanchez, writer/director Olivier Assayas relies on a dizzying cinematic style that is also punctuated by the punk music that characterized the rebellion of the age in which he lived. Music and visuals are among the many pallettes that Assayas has used with great fidelity and skill throughout his diverse and diverting 25-year career. As an added panache to the theatrical release o...

The French Touch At The Miami Film Festival

Friday, March 7---------Films from France have traditionally been among the strongest and most loved at the Miami International Film Festival.

Even for those not fluent in “la langue,” French cinema has been the most popular non-English film product for more than 70 years in the Unit...

Gay life is part of the texture of the city and this year’s Miami International Film Festival is presen...
