"Life Is Sacred": A Human Rights Watch Film Festival Premiere

When's the last time a film about a mayor got your pulse racing? For attendees of the recent Human Rights Watch Film Festival at the Film Society of Lincoln Center, the answer must be Life Is Sacred, Andreas Dalsgaard's portrait of Antanas Mockus. And before that, it was surely Dalsgaard's 2009 documentary Cities on Speed: Bogota Change. That too centered on heady, twinkle-eyed Mockus. The two-time mayor of Bogota is perhaps best summed up by the caped persona he playfully assumed...

Matthew McConaughey Fleshes Out "Dallas Buyers Club"

If you saw Matthew McConaughey claim Best Actor honors at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards, you know the story behind his latest movie Dallas Buyers Club. "For 20 years it was an underdog, turned down 86 times," he twanged. "We got the right people together five years ago, stuck to it, put some skin in the game and here it is."As hotted up as Texas, he swaggered on, "Really glad it got passed on so many times or it wouldn't have come to me." McConaughey went ...

Alfonso Cuaròn Explores "Gravity"

On a recent wintry night, the 13th snow storm of the season froze the Film Society of Lincoln Center's plans to host Alfonso Cuarón in a conversation about his new film Gravity. The acclaimed Mexican director, whose lift-off to New York was aborted, was instead astral-projected by video Skype. Cuarón is perhaps best known to American audiences for his screen adaptation of the children's book A Little Princess; his Mexican road comedy Y Tu Mamá También; ...

New York Lauds Godard with Awesome Retrospective

Fifty years ago this fall, from September 10-19, 1963, the first New York Film Festival was held. The cinema world was different in those days. In an era before home video and DVDs, the few venues for film fanatics to see non-mainstream or foreign films were repertory cinemas, college film societies or festivals. The top grossing film that year was Cleopatra, starring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. And although Beatlemania had reached a critical mass in Britain, the band had yet to conqu...

user
  The 49th edition of the New York Film Festival, a sure sign of the Fall season, is underway, and in its substantially expanded format, there is literally something for everyone at this year’s event. The Festival, which has prided itself on being a boutique as opposed to the bazaar offered at such events in Toronto, Cannes and Berlin (and at New York’s own Tribeca Film Festival) still offers the cream of the crop from those other festival celebrations, with a sprinkling of highbrow c...

Meditations On The Middle East

user
  678 (Mohamed Diab, Egypt)  There is no doubt that we are living in historic times. The political and social upheaval in the Middle East and northern Africa are among the most stunning events of the new millennium, and it still remains unclear whether this will herald a period of unprecedented stability and its complete opposite. Helping us to understand the turmoil and the inner lives of those cultures, four films in the New Directors/New Film series, entering its first weekend...

French Femme Directors Take Center Stage

user
  THE SLEEPING BEAUTY (Catherine Breillat) Kathryn Bigelow may have broken through the glass ceiling with her historic Best Director Oscar win last year for THE HURT LOCKER, but the door was not pushed wide open for women directors in the American film industry.

A French Feast For Cinema Lovers

user
  It is a longstanding amour fou......the crazy love New Yorkers have for all things French, and the French appreciation of New York as its cultural cousin. For both sides, the yearly Rendez-Vous With French Cinema program, which is now running in several venues around New York City, is both an erotic embrace and a dazzling dance. For francophiles and film buffs, it is a film feast. Presented by the Film Society at Lincoln Center and Unifrance, the 16th edition offers its customary ho...

Riding The Weir Wave

user
  You cannot talk about world cinema of the 1970s and 1980s without mentioning (and lionizing) the name of Peter Weir. A key innovator of the Australian New Wave of those decades, and one of the few who made major successes in both his native land and in the wilds of Hollywood, Peter Weir is being celebrated this weekend at the Film Society of Lincoln Center, with a showcasing of some of his most important works and a preview screening of his latest film. From the outback of his n...

Christmas Is Over.....Bring On The Jews

user
  Film Comment, the highly respected film magazine that is the publishing initiative of New York's Film Society of Lincoln Center, has thrown its hat into the ring of the current awards season with an announcement this week of its Top Ten Films of the Year.
