Art Or Exploitation? You Decide

user
  OK......let me set up the scene. You and your slacker roommate are living in a cheap rent apartment in one of San Francisco's less tony neighborhoods. One night, you hear an argument of torrential rage coming from behind the paper-thin walls from the apartment next door. Night after night, you are captivated by the hilarious and insidious darkness of the epithets being thrown from one person to the other, and then the bright idea strikes you.......record the madhouse melee for your fr...

The Loss Of Innocence At TIFF

user
  Yesterday was September 11th, and again I find myself in the city of Toronto, as I did in 2001......when the planes crashed, the towers fell, the buildings burned and America lost its innocence. It was a very strange place to be back then, in the midst of covering a film festival, while one's city was in chaos. For those of us from New York, there was a shared concern about the loss of loved ones, the security of our friends and family and the frustrations of not being able to place p...

Portal to 'Red White and Blue'

user
The internationally acclaimed and festival winning Red White and Blue (2010) isn't the patriotic film that you would expect from such a title...No, it's a story peppered with symbolism about deprivation, love, passion and gore. Red, White and Blue is a heart-palpitating thought-provoking thriller story about nymph-ess Erica and 'three lives bound together by blood'.  I had the fortunate opportunity to meet with producer Bob Portal to speak about his film Red White and Blue as well...

"Film is Lasagne" - rich metaphors from three Italian auteurs

#
Documentary filmmakers can be very serious. It is a serious art. The Italian Consul-General of New York, Francesco Talo, aptly describes the Festival dei Popoli's New York Documentary Film Festival as "recognising social problems through documentary expression". But the most magical moments and memorable quotes of the festival were so refreshingly funny that I nearly fell off my chair.  Like the best of Italian cinema, the three distinguished Italian directors featured in tribu...

Interview with Clive Owen at the BFI London Film Festival

It's the BFI London Film Festival and I'm at the BFI Southbank to meet Clive Owen.

Born 1964 in Coventry, Clive Owen was a man who didn't have it all set in his early life. With a father who left the family when Owen was three...

Bollywood at Toronto

user
Mainstream Indian entertainment films from Bombay, which means the flashy three hour song and dance extravaganzas which have come to be know by the somewhat patronizing appellation "Bollywood" -- as opposed to the "serious art" films from India which had been making the festival rounds until now, are suddenly beginning to surface at major international film festivals, the latest instance being Toronto 2009.  At the 34th  instalment of this mega-festival (for that is e...

Film In Focus: FLING

user
  Saturday, November 9---------In case you were curious to know where the center for swinging sex is in America (if you answer Los Angeles, New York or San Francisco, you are dead wrong), the correct answer to the above question is: Kansas City, Missouri. Kansas City? You mean that mini-metropolis smack dab in the middle of the country in the swing state that still is not sure if it is "red" or "blue". Well, according to the film FLING, which had its East Coast...

Remembering September 11, 2001

Thursday, September 11--------For those of us whose memories of the events of 9-11 coincided with the Toronto International Film Festival, there are moments that forever link those great metropolitan cities. I was indeed in Toronto for my final days of the Festival in 2001.I can remember the exact moment when I first heard about a plane crashing into one of the towers of the World Trade Center. I was in a taxicab with my colleague Malo Girod de l'Ain (whose company M21 Editions hosts both this ...

Interview with Mike Newell: Love in the time of cholera

user
What were your fears as you set about making a film of a supposedly ‘unfilmable' book?   "The biggest thing was that it was a sacred text. And with Gabriel Garcia Marquez there are people who cannot possibly have known him who call him by his diminutive Christian name - he's known as ‘Gabo' - so there's a  kind of possessiveness which is very daunting. Beyond that this is a great, great book. I can be as snippy as I like about people thinking that they own it because I think I...
