Munich certainly makes you think

user
Munich certainly makes you think; it might be about the silly continuity error of a man spectacularly falling dead on his chest crushing a large bag of his shopping, in the lift lobby of his apartment block, seen a moment later lying flat on his back. The odd thing is, there is no need at all for the second shot. This thought might keep bothering you for a while, until it is disturbed by one of the many unguarded conversations that various undercover groups have in very public places, ranging fr...

Mill Valley Film Festival Closes

user

Outside of New York, the Bay Area is one of the top markets for independent and foreign films, in part because the populace is diverse and highly educated. The Mill Valley festival draws more filmmakers and producers than celebrity-struck fans, which is just fine for the people showing the films -- they'd rather see word of mouth race through the industry, so they can get distributio...

user

No one can ever predict what a jury with a chemistry of its own will decide. We have some ideas though from the day one press conference: Benoît Poelvoorde is going to take revenge on the films because he's never won an award (prompted by Bob Hope and Billy Crystal). Tilda Swinton and Quentin Tarantino will po...
