Encounters With British Cinema At Tribeca FF

 Monday, April 28---------One of the great pleasures of attending a film festival is the serendipity that often occurs when one sees one film after another, finding thematic connections or differences between them that delight the soul and stimulate the mind. I had just such an occurrence the other day, seeing two British films back to back. It just happened that the films were screening after one another, but it made me realize how much I love and appreciate both the high and the low in Britis...

The French Touch At The Miami Film Festival

Friday, March 7---------Films from France have traditionally been among the strongest and most loved at the Miami International Film Festival. Not only does Miami have within its borders a large French expatriate community, but immigrants from French-speaking Africa and the Americas round out the French language contingent in this multi-cultural town. Even for those not fluent in “la langue,” French cinema has been the most popular non-English film product for more than 70 years in the Unit...

Scarlet Jo and Natalie Po, a fetching but misplaced pair in The Other Boleyn Girl

user
The final class production of the fest, "The Other Boleyn Girl", (Non competition) an opulent costume drama set at the court of the most famous of all British Kings, Henry VIII, (who reigned from 1509 - 1547) has echoes reminiscent of the Golden Age of Hollywood when the likes of eminently upper crust Englishmen such as George Sanders played sneering Nazi officers, and flamboyant Australians like Errol Flynn portrayed gunslingers in Dodge City --and never mind the displaced accents!...

Madonna hits Berlin and raises tempo of sluggish fest

user
There are Stars and there Super-Stars, then there is MADONNA... a kind of media SuperNova, who blows other stars away, sends photogs scurrying like cockroaches in heat, and attracts incredible throngs of gawkers even when she isn’t trying to outrage the Bourgeois and seems to be on her best behavior. The forty-nine year old Queen of Pop arrived in Berlin on Wednesday looking very trim in a smart, conservative black dress, six inch high heels, and her blonde tresses parted neatly in the middle...

No longer tethered to television, many more non-fiction films are making a splash on the big screen. The poster boy for this movement is most probably Michael Moore, whose trifecta of BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE, FAHRENHEIT 911 and this year’s  nominated SICKO, were film phenomena in their own right, often outpacing Hollywood features and hyped indie dramatic gems. ...

Ok - this is a new year and a chance to start a fresh right? Well 2007 saw the launch of my website - www.jennifer-warren.com and it seemed my genius web guru decided to opt me in for a mandatory blog. Great idea - everybody knows that a blog is the best way to self-market and to get your opinion out there. However it soon became to me like that empty journal you feel guilty about not writing in. Sure I made a point of posting while on the circuit at Tribeca Film Festival and then nearly 6 mont...
