Miami Festival opens with LA MISMA LUNA

user
Tonight, the 25th edition of the Miami International Film Festival opens with the premiere of LA MISMA LUNA, a Mexican/US co-production directed by Patricia Riggen. The film began its life at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival, where it was an instant sensation. A debut feature at the Sundance Film Festival is not, in itself, a major event. However, the excitement that percolated after the World Premiere screening of LA MISMA LUNA at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival was one for the books. The film, ...

The Luis Buñuel Retrospective at the Berlinale

user
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. Director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu has a novelist's approach to filmmaking.  His works ("Amores perros", "21 Grams") follow multiple storyli...
