Philadelphia Film Society - Screening of The Wrester at Asylum Arena

user
PFS filmadelphiaCLASSICS series on location, continued last week with a screening of the 2009 Oscar nominated film, The Wrestler. The Film was shown at Asylum Arena (South Philly) because the wrestling scenes in the movie were actually shot there! I knew director, Darren Aronofsky had Philly connections with his film Black Swan, as the PA Ballet is all over that film, but this was news to me that Mickey Rourke had been here filming in 2008. Prior to the screen...

Director Darren Aronofsky discusses his latest film Black Swan with Film Independent.

user
  For more than 15 years, director Darren Aronofsky mulled over an idea for a film set in the world of ballet.  But it turned out that Aronofsky's Black Swan benefited from the wait. Aronofsky sees the film, which stars Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis, as a companion piece to his award winning 2008 film, The Wrestler.  Both films are set in highly competitive, brutalizing sports and both lead characters find themselves in an uncontrollable path to ...

American Indie Auteurs In Poland

user
  While the Polish public certainly is aware of the latest Hollywood films, and with current American television series also freely available here, it is a little surprising that some  of the American indie world's most celebrated auteurs are virtually unknown. That is one of the goals of the inaugural American Film Festival, the first film event in Eastern Europe solely devoted to contemporary and classic American cinema. And if the size of the audiences at the screenings is any indica...

Stars Shine Brightly In Toronto

  Natalie Portman in BLACK SWAN  While film professionals are here at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) to buy and sell films in a still soft market, for the Toronto public the big attraction are the movie stars who will be walking the red carpet in the coming 10 days.

Hollywood Sex Symbol in Sarajevo

user
Mickey Rourke in between the process of undergoing the knife almost too unrecognizable familiar face of Hollywood sex symbol of 80s had no means to conceal the damage caused to his face, but only to rise above all in rather flirty matter, with addressing the Sarajevo Press Audience. Something that you can check out on official festival site www.sff.ba Born in New York in 1952, Rourke's teenage years were more aimed towards sports than acting. He took up self-defense training at the Bo...

The Wrestler from Darren Aronofksy will open Thessaloniki Fest

user
Back in the eighties, Randy "The Ram" Robinson was at the top of his game, but twenty five years later he finds himself trapped by the only thing he knows how to do: fight other men for money. Randy and his fellow fighters form a ragged brotherhood, propped up by a routine of gym workouts, steroids, tanning beds and choreographed mayhem in the ring. But Randy is already working the hard edge of this underground circuit; faced with one opponent who plays to the crowd's bloodlust, he g...

A ROCKY For Our Troubled Times

user
  Sunday, October 12-----Every generation deserves its own Rocky.....a reminder that guts can lead to glory. In 1976, Sylvester Stallone's sentimental tale of a past-his-prime boxer who finds love and redemption both in and out of the ring, was an unlikely hit and major Oscar winner. In the next 30 years, films about bucking the odds have become their own uniquely American genre.   This year's Rocky is also the comeback story of the year....both for its lead actor an...
