Article published in the NY Times  "I'm not an unkind person," says Trudie Styler, "but by the same token, I'm not a people-pleaser." DURING a visit to India to celebrate her 50th birthday, Trudie Styler consulted a seer. Recently, she recalled the episode, highlighted by a reading of her Vedic chart, with mock incredulity. "Oh, madam, by golly, this chart is very unique,' " she was told. " 'By 2012, you could be asking for the Taj Ma...

user
This is an overview of my 2011 Sundance experience  For Europeans, heading to a remote mining town now ski resort and festival headquarters in Park City, Utah, tucked away in the Wasatch mountains outside of Salt Lake City, it's no simple journey.

Viennale Festival trailer by James Benning: Fire & Rain

user
The annual festival trailer has been one of the Viennale's special features for quite some time now. It is not a commercial trailer as such, but rather a small, autonomous piece of cinema, standing on its own and for the festival alike. In the case of James Benning's work this short trailer is a true action film. Benning shot the work process in a steelworks in the Ruhr area. On a kind of conveyor belt, a glowing piece of steel flits across the screen and disappears only to reappear again a...

user
I was afraid I was going to have to introduce myself. I'm here because of my loyalty to Paul Newman. Our autobiography? We met many years ago through work and became pals. When we became friends.

As for life in general, we were both aware of the joy of success. Along the way, he ad the chance to fo...

By the following decade, Hollywood was back to its old tricks of mounting blockbusters and lowest-common-denominator genre films. But for a period of about ten years (from 1967 to 1977, roughly defined by the release of Mike Nichol's THE GRADUATE and the unprecedented boxoffice extravaganza...
