Open Roads 2012: New Italian Cinema showcase

user
New York:  Open Roads: New Italian Cinema, 2012 That foreign language films have hard time finding an audience in the United is no secrete unless they are programmed for a captive diaspora audience in specialty houses as is the case for most films for the Indian language speaking audience.

IFFBoston 2011: Nightfall

user
IFFB ’11 also screened a trio of films about what happens after the sun goes down. The two designees for this year’s festival-within-a-festival IFFBoston After Dark were The Catechism Cataclysm and Stake Land.  The former is a quirky comedy that gradually turns dark and surreal. Starting with a peppy, lonely priest using a misremembered friendship to emotionally coerce his childhood idol onto a canoe trip, we meander to a finish that includes campfire stories with two giggling panda-head...

Father's Day a film of a different nature

user
Father’s Day is not a title for a film reflecting on what most of us remember as a special day for dads. What we have is a dark revenge movie going off into the deep crevices, of Grindhouse movies with a the combination of 80s late-night TV and a perverted sense of humor which makes this film something truly unique. If that is your flavor for film and you are a Troma fan,you will love this movie. How Astron-6 did this film on such a limited budget is mind-blowing. After the cast s...
