“Mukti Bhawan is Exceptional” A Subhash K Jha Review

7 April 2017 9:17 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Mukti Bhawan

Starring Lalit Behl, Adil Hussain, Geetanjali Kulkarni, Navninda Behl.

Written & Directed by Shubhashish Bhutiani

24 is too young to think about death, let alone make a melancholic meditative movie on mortality. Debutant Shubhashish Bhutiani’s Mukti Bhawan sweeps us into a world where death is not the end but a release into a realm of imperishable freedom.

Or Moksha, if you will.

Crafted with the care of a jeweller working on a specially intricate piece, the director brings to life the most precious and vital truth about death. As he takes us, along with his two protagonists, on a journey to the holy city of death Varanasi, the film somewhere along its resplendent route to salvation, becomes a treatise on life as defined by the inevitability of death.

Like all the most important directors of the world from Satyajit Ray to Ritesh Batra, Bhutani has a keen eye for detail. »

Quad Cinema Will Relaunch with Films from Yang, Rivette, Kubrick, Fassbinder, Wertmüller, Coppola & More

21 March 2017 12:58 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Next month will mark the return of New York City’s Quad Cinema, a theater reshaped and rebranded as a proper theater via the resources of Charles S. Cohen, head of the distribution outfit Cohen Media Group. While we got a few hints of the line-up during the initial announcement, they’ve now unveiled their first full repertory calendar, running from April 14th through May 4th, and it’s an embarassment of cinematic riches.

Including the previously revealed Lina Wertmüller retrospective, one inventive series that catches our eye is First Encounters, in which an artist will get to experience a film they’ve always wanted to see, but never have, and in which you’re invited to take part. The first match-ups in the series include Kenneth Lonergan‘s first viewing Edward Yang‘s Yi YiNoah Baumbach‘s first viewing of Withnail and I, John Turturro‘s first viewing of Pather Panchali, »

Noah Baumbach and Kenneth Lonergan Want to See Movies They’ve Never Seen Before With You

20 March 2017 12:03 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Noah Baumbach has never seen “Withnail and I.” Kenneth Lonergan has always wanted to see “Yi Yi.” Sandra Bernhard hasn’t had the chance to catch “Lola.” As part of New York City’s Quad Cinema’s newly announced “First Encounters” screening series, they (and more creative types) are going to finally remedy that — and they’d like you to join them.

The newly revamped four-screen theater — set to reopen in less than in a month — has announced the first lineup of their newest series, which sees notable New Yorkers (helped by programmers Christopher Wells and Gavin Smith) picking a film they’ve never seen (but have always wanted to) to show on the big screen, complete with a post-showing Q&A with the rest of audience.

Check out the first official lineup for First Encounters below, with descriptions and other information provided by Quad Cinema.

The Ascent of Om Puri

10 January 2017 6:30 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Om Puri, the veteran of Indian cinema who died on Friday morning at age 66 of an unexpected heart attack, received two National Film Awards, the highest honor an actor can receive in India. The awards are not without their controversies, as one may suspect from awards that are doled out by the national government of India. They have sometimes been accused of favoring Hindi-language films at the expense of regional cinema. As far as Indian awards bodies go, though, the National Film Awards exhibit remarkably prudent taste more often than not. The first of Puri’s National Awards was for Arohan (The Ascending Scale, 1982), by director Shyam Benegal, while the second came for Govind Nihalani’s Ardh Satya (Half Truth, 1983). In the days since Puri’s death, there has been justified focus on his work in Ardh Satya. It gave Puri one of his most definitive roles, and the film »

10 Directors to Watch: Ritesh Batra Follows Hindi ‘Lunchbox’ With Two English-Language Films

3 January 2017 9:47 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For Mumbai-born director Batra, directing an English-language film, let alone two, wasn’t necessarily a goal. But after the success of his Hindi-lingo debut, “The Lunchbox,” which premiered in Critics’ Week at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, offers started to pour in. So when BBC Films invited Batra to direct “The Sense of an Ending,” he says, “I jumped on it.”

A subtle romantic mystery that stars Jim Broadbent and Charlotte Rampling as long-estranged lovers with unfinished business between them, the drama is based on a Julian Barnes’ novel. “I’m an avid reader,” Batra says. “I was interested in doing justice to the adaptation [which turned out to be] a bigger challenge than I expected.”

He had a “humongous” crew of nearly 300 people on set, which took some getting used to in the first week. But Batra found the pleasure of collaborating with respected British actors to be no different from his experience directing Irrfan Khan on “The Lunchbox. »
