Movie Review: BABEL

A troubled couple on a marraige-salvaging journey through Morocco.  A Mexican housekeeper watching the couple's two small children.  A deaf mute teenaged girl desperate for favorable attention.  These are the towers of "Babel", and all of their foundations are shaken by the shattering piercings of a single bullet.

the celebrity beat goes on at halfway mark in santa barbara

Film festivals come in various shapes, sizes, formats and orientations. The currently ongoing 22nd installment of the Santa Barbara Film Festival is a bit off-beat in certain aspects. Lasting eleven days and presenting some 200 films it is certainly not small -- more like "medium to large." In terms of importance, however, while it is not considered to be quite in the same class as the North-American majors, Sundance, Telluride, Chicago, New York, Toronto and Montreal, it can nevertheless ce...

The Problem and the Promise of Sundance

Thursday, January 18----I will freely admit it….I’ve got a little bit of a problem with Sundance. First, there is the location. As a New York City boy, I have always been more impressed with film festivals that happen in real cities, as opposed to the rarified environment of beach resorts (Cannes, Deauville), mountain retreats (Sundance, Telluride) or country wilds (The Hamptons). For me, there is no replacing the mixed vitality of a first class festival that is part of the fabric of a di...
