"Koko-Di-Koko-Da" - Review from Sundance

  Well, they can’t all be good. Koko-Di-Koko-Da is a film that was so intriguing on paper that it was one of the first films I actively secured a ticket for. It’s a Swedish horror flick that tracks the brutal process of grief and the damage it does to a relationship. At best, the films absurdities serve as a metaphor for this sentiment. At worst, the absurdities merely serve as aesthetic pageantry to keep the viewer awake. Essentially, it is a cheaply made horror film wit...

Wind River Review

  Last night I was able to attend a showing of Wind River at the Debussy Theatre, where part of the cast, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, and Julia Jones, and the director, Taylor Sheridan, aslo arrived. It was a stunning picture and the performances by Elizabeth Olsen and Jeremy Renner were impressive. The film is set in an isolated snowy town in Wyoming and it follows a hunter, Corey Lambert (Renner), who helps a rookie FBI agent, Jane Banner (Olsen), after Lambert uncovers the body of...

Diversity? How About Breakout Disney Hit 'McFarland, USA’ & Kevin Costner, Carlos Pratts Gleam

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent ‘Diversity’ is a buzzword that says a lot by saying very little, so it is with McFarland, USA, from Disney, starring Kevin Costner leading a remarkable cast. When this movie opens wide on Feb. 20, nobody will need to know anything about the buzzwords, other than it is a “huge hit” from Niki Caro (Whale Rider) that will put America’s small San Joaquin Valley farming town on the map of our hearts. Costner, who showe...

Berlinale 2015: Nobody wants the night (review)

  Nobody wants the night (Nadie quiere la noche), dir. Isabel Coixet, Berlinale 2015 Competition - Opening Film    As Plato wrote in his allegory of the cave thousands of years ago, a caveman feels secure in the darkness, but it is the excitement of the light above that defines the beauty of his human nature. Isabel Coixet comes two thousand years closer in history to depict this exact same thirst for knowledge in Nobody wants the light, opening film of this year’s Ber...

My take on *SEASON OF THE WITCH Nicolas Cage is one of my favourite actors. Even when he features in faltu films like Bangkok Dangerous. Having starred in Dominic Sena's Gone in 60 Seconds,   he reteams with the director in a  supernatural tale which has been  released in India in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. Set in medieval Europe, SEASON OF THE WITCH stars Cage as  the Crusader knight Behman with Ron Perlman, as the knight Felson for a comrade in arms in the fi...

Golden Globe Round Up 2011

In 2009 The Golden Globe ceremony didn't have a host. The actors/actresses just came out to present and announce the winner. I don't remember what they did for an opening, but a joke monologue isn't the only way to open the show with energy. I don't want to be a Pollyanna or someone who only accepts niceties and tact, but I felt some of host Ricky Gervais', blunt, roast type humor may have been unnecessary. Do I feel this way because we're talking about Hollywood Royalty, like J...

Marco Tullio Giordana (Wild Blood)

My association with Philadelphia Cinema Alliance has once again brought me into contact with a world famous, critically-acclaimed writer/director- Marco Tullio Giordana. In Italy he is one of the most popular and well-regarded filmmakers of the last thirty years. His films such as, I cento passi (2000) Pasolini, un delitto italiano (1995) and most recently Sanguepazzo (Wild Blood) (2008) are so respected that many Universities in the US teach entire courses on Maestro Giordana's work, bo...

Commentary - The People Speak

I have to confess, I watched "The People Speak" last night, from 8-9, but then I turned to A&E's "The Jackson's: A Family Dynasty" Reality Show premiere ;) What I did see of "The People Speak" makes me want to see it in its entirety, yet still I went to bed without checking to see if they were going to do an encore performance last night on The History Channel, which they did at midnight, so I missed rec...

Movie Review: Music and Lyrics

"Music and Lyrics" is an unsurprising, perfectly agreeable romantic comedy starring Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore.  The film contains a fair amount of very smart ideas for a rom-com, not the least of which is its main plot conceit:  an amateur lyricist and an aging, has been pop star join forces to create a hit love song for the reigning pop princess of the day (think of an even more vapid Britney Spears).  The germ of a great flowering romance is all there (how they connect through...

Strangeness, 8 bit videogame culture, and Japanese Anime = WE ARE THE STRANGE

Saturday, January 20- Sundance showcased the world premiere of WE ARE THE STRANGE at the festival's first Midnight screening of the 2007 festival.
