Gary Lucas Plays "The Unholy Three"--accompanying the Tod Browning/Lon Chaney silent film with original live solo guitar score

Director: Tod Browning.
One of Tod Browning and Lon Chaneys greatest films, this 1925 silent classic was remade with Chaney in a sound version--but this original surpasses it by far, especially with the dark, suspenseful music master guitarist/composer Gary Lucas ("The Thinking Man's Guitar Hero") coaxes out of his guitar. Three carnival mugs, a strongman (Victor McGlagen), a "baby" (Harry Earles) and a ventriloquist (Lon Chaney) join forces to create a criminal gang that robs and terrorizes a community until finally brought to justice. A thriller from beginning to end, enhanced y Lucas' live solo guitar score: http://garylucas.com/www/unholy

The Complete Clint Eastwood

Actor, director, screenwriter, jazz musician, music composer, politician, philanthropist, film legend.....these attributes could describe a cadre of people, but when they all wrapped into one outsized personality, it is truly impressive.

Human Rights Watch Film Festival Seeks "Accountability and Justice"

user
Last July, the nonprofit group Human Rights Watch put out a hefty report drawn from its prior two decades of watching dogs in some 20 countries. Called Selling Justice Short, the dossier showed why accountability was a good thing for peace and, if nothing else, could help heal victims by acknowledging their anguish. I didn't read it – nor likely did you – but the Human Rights Watch Film Festival supplies some visual Cliff's Notes. This year it gives witness to human rights violations ...

The Challenge Of Human Rights

These challenging times call for courage, determination and a selflessness that was woefully out of fashion in the Me-Me-Me Decade that preceded the worldwide economic collapse. That there is potential for the global community to learn from its mistakes is always a hopeful sign (although let us remember that the Great Depression was followed almost immediately by its antidote, World War II). When this moral courage needs to be inspired in each one of us, it helps that courageous filmmakers are d...

An Embrace Between Dance and Film

Thursday, January 4-----Annie Leibovitz, the superstar photographer, has famously said that dance is the one medium that is almost impossible to correctly capture via the still photograph. Because of its key element, movement in space, it is much better suited for the moving picture format. That speaks directly to lovers of dance and dance on film who should revel in the Dance on Camera Festival, which premieres this week at New York’s Walter Reade Theater. Screenings continue this week thro...
