Nine and 1/2

user
  Rob Marshall's Nine (2009) appears to be one of those movies that people walk away from either loving or hating. When I saw it in Palm Springs with Rob Marhsall on panel, I took the opportunity to pose him some of my curious questions regarding his follow up to one of my favorite films ever, Federico Fellini's 8 1/2 (1963). When Rob entered the room he stood back and regarded the panel chairs in the right corner of the room and shook his head, dissatisfied. He picked up...

"Film is Lasagne" - rich metaphors from three Italian auteurs at the New York Documentary Film Festi

user
Documentary filmmakers can be very serious. It is a serious art. The Italian Consul-General of New York, Francesco Talo, aptly describes the Festival dei Popoli's New York Documentary Film Festival as "recognising social problems through documentary expression". But the most magical moments and memorable quotes of the festival were so refreshingly funny that I nearly fell off my chair. Like the best of Italian cinema, the three distinguished Italian directors featured in tribute at the festival ...

BAMcineFEST Grows in Brooklyn

user
BAMcinemaFEST is back for year two at Brooklyn's BAMcinématek, where its slate of New York premieres stands to fuel its rep as a local Cape Canaveral of independent films. The June 9–20, 2010 spectacle is challenging lazy Manhattanites like me to rethink our scout pledge, "I'll never leave the island for culture." P.T. Barnum paraded 21 elephants across the Brooklyn Bridge, so an hour subway ride shouldn't be such an ordeal.  Especially not when it comes to attractions...

Provincetown International Film Festival Brings Warm Tides

The Festival will once again salute "new achievements in independent film…and the work of acclaimed and emerging directors, producers and actors," as per its website. Not a peep about writers, which is the bailiwick of the N...

Party at Pool Beach sous la pluie

Cannes may be a festival for film, but it's also a social festival: many people come to Cannes solely for the parties. "I've never been to a film at the festival," says Cannes veteran, who comes to the festival every year to attend some of the best parties and most exclusive clubs in the world. While most of these parties are expensive and very exclusive, there are some, especially during the day, that are more opened to the general public--at least to ...
