Marion Cotillard

RUST AND BONE wins BFI London Film Festival Award for best film, Sketch by Nesta 2012

I saw Rust and Bone during the Cannes Film festival, in the company of a bone doctor. His intrigue was medical, and mine artistic. I composed a drawing through the film, which seems to me, Audiard's description of a key scene: The film's treatment of a key scene for Cotillard's character, Stéphanie, is a central moment to the story; a chaotic, dream-like sequence, slowed down to the point of abstr

The French Revolution Continues In London

user
  One can see that the French Revolution never really ended in the 18th century…..it continues into our own, in terms of style, fashion and the arts. French film is continually re-inventing itself and finding new ways of expression in a 100-year-old art form. At this year’s London Film Festival, a section appropriately entitled French Revolutions showcases some of the cinematic trend-setters of the year.   With the obvious exception of the American and the ...

Virtuoso Award Festival Midweek Extravaganza

ATONEMENT and SWEENEY TODD Are Big Winners at Golden Globes

 Monday, January 14-------It was, without a doubt, the strangest Golden Globe Awards in memory. Not only was there not the lavish and extravagantly catered affair at the Beverly Hilton, but no actors, writers or directors were present to make acceptment speeches. In fact, the whole event was nothing more than a glorified Press Conference and some rather boring (and ratings challenged) telecasts on NBC, CNN and some other media outlets. In spite of the Writers Guild strike, the Awards were indee...

A Late Summer Fling With French Cinema

 Monday, August 20---------Next to the United States, France (a country about 25% the population) has the world's most prolific and dynamic film industry. And luckily, the interest in French cinema has remained consistently strong, with a new crop of directors, writers and actors making impressions on ever-increasing audiences. For those of us who proudly call themselves "francophones" (like myself),  this is very good news. Still, the number of French feature films and documen...
