Don't miss PINA, by Wim Wenders

user
  If you love beautiful things and you want to be moved, you must see PINA, the documentary by Wim Wenders. It captures some of the legendary German choreographer Pina Bausch’s 40 dances, using 3-D technology that draws you into the dance in a way that’s never been filmed before. And it’s earthy! Where else have you seen dancers ooze into actual dirt, fling themselves into water and rock, burst through woods in spring, or dance a lonely arabesque on a concrete island surrounded...

Film, a Bygone Era.

user
The first thing that always comes to mind these days when talking about the craft of making movies, for all movie-goers is 3-D and its continued assault on our senses, when it’s not done right. Yet 3-D hasn’t been the biggest sea change in recent memory, no, the biggest change in the industry has been a long time coming and became very obvious recently, Digital. Movies shot digitally and a good majority of theaters switching over to Digital projectors, we are seeing the onset of the truest...

Wim Wenders’ “Pina” and Luc Besson’s “The Lady” score big at AFI

user
These two films got big audience responses last week at the AFI Film Festival in Los Angeles.   “Pina,” a 3-D documentary about the legendary German choreographer Pina Bausch, starts with her re-envisioning of Stravinsky’s “Rite of Spring” as a thrilling discovery of female sexuality. The film jumps—you cannot gently segue away from “Rite”—into other dances she choreographed, along with brief interviews with her dancers. When Wenders voices that this is no...
