Sidney Lumet: One Of The Greats

user
  We lost one of the greats this past week. Sidney Lumet, a national treasure and the quintessential New York filmmaker (sorry, Woody Allen) died last week at the age of 86. In a career that spanned over 50 years in both live television and the big screen, Lumet was nominated for the Best Director Oscar four times and has left an indelible filmography of titles that are distinguished by their social relevancy and strong caliber of acting. Lumet’s most famous films were shot in and were ...

Directed by Tamara Jenkins, the writer/director of the indie hit SLUMS OF BEVERLY HILLS (1999), the family drama had its world premiere at last year's Sundance Film Festival, where it won the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award for Jenkins' sensitive and sometimes hilarious script...

Berlin Wrap: the films we hadda miss...

user
It's always a bit of a let-down when a big one like this wraps and you look through the catalogue noting oodles of films you were dying to see but just didn't have time to get to. Ouch! Among the most coveted 'near misses' (since it would have been possible to see them, but at the expense of missing other simultaneously scheduled events) I can list with sweet regret (and this is only a small sampling), the following: "The Notorious Betty Page" (with a fetishistically luscious Gretchen Mol); "Ab...
