Y Tu Mama Tambien and Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down! Criterion Blu-ray Reviews

19 September 2014 12:46 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Criterion has released two Spanish-language movies of a sexual nature, one from Mexico, one from Spain.  The former is Alfonso Cuaron’s Y Tu Mama Tambien (which translates to “And your mother too”), which Criterion has been promising for five years, while the other is Pedro Almodovar’s Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!, which was notorious for its Nc-17 rated content at the time.  My review of both Criterion editions of these films follow after the jump. Y Tu Mama Tambien came after Cuaron had been courted by Hollywood in the nineties, and after he had made two studio movies that he’s since come to express some disappointment about how they turned out.  It’s quite possible that Cuaron -- had he not hit this breaking point -- would have transformed into a studio hack.  But he wanted to do something different, something that would re-energize his love of moviemaking, »

A&E Developing Drama Based on Diego Luna, Gael Garcia Bernal’s ‘Nino Santo’

18 September 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A&E Network has found the path of “Nino Santo” and is developing multiple scripts for an adaption of the Mexican series of the same name that was created by Mauricio Katz, Pedro Peirano and Pablo Cruz and executive produced by Cruz, Diego Luna and Gael García Bernal.

The series follows a group of young doctors who are sent to a remote village to vaccinate the locals, only to encounter an unusual cult headed by an enigmatic faith healer. The doctors decide to become involved with this group in the name of science, but as they witness Nino’s “miracles,” they begin to weigh scientific impossibility against the possibility of faith.

The team who created the Mexican version will be adapting the series for the U.S. and it will be produced by A+E Studios in association with Amblin Television and Canana. Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey will serve »

Madrid – A bullish star quotient – Denzel Washington, Benicio del Toro, Antonio Banderas, John Malkovich, Pedro Almodovar, Viggo Mortensen, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jessica Chastain, Josh Hutcherson, Omar Sy, Ricardo Darin, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Leonardo Sbaraglia – is expected at Spain’s 62nd San Sebastian Festival.

The highest-profile event in the Spanish-speaking world, San Sebastian Festival is celebrated for its powerful Spanish-world art film line-up and new-talent focus. But it has never disdained glam: Stars – Hollywood, Spanish and French – receive a rapturous welcome from the city’s townsfolk, especially when they arrive at the festival’s mainstay Maria Cristina Hotel.

Star presence also plays off San Sebastian’s policy of attempting to snag European premieres of Toronto bows.

Washington and Del Toro will receive career-achievement Donostia Awards. Washington, accompanied by Antoine Fuqua, will also present the European premiere of Sony’s “The Equalizer,” which opens the Festival on Sept.19.

“Y Tu MAMÁ TAMBIÉN” (2001; Directed by Alfonso Cuarón) (The Criterion Collection)

24 August 2014 3:35 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

The Mexican Newer Wave

By Raymond Benson

At the turn of the Millennium, several film directors from Mexico were gaining attention and acclaim—guys like Alfonso Arau, Alejandro Gonzales Iñárritu, Guillermo del Toro, and this year’s Oscar-winner as Best Director, Alfonso Cuarón (for Gravity). Cuarón’s career trajectory has been, for me, the most interesting of the bunch. He broke into the international scene with the 2001 coming-of-age drama, Y Tu Mamá También, and followed that with, of all things, the megahit Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, which, I argue, is the best of all eight Harry Potter movies. The terrific dystopian thriller Children of Men followed that, and then came Gravity.

Other than the superb handling of each specific film’s material, there isn’t much similarity between these pictures, and yet it’s apparent that Cuarón brings an auteur sensibility to his work. This is most »

Criterion Collection: Y Tu Mamá También | Blu-ray Review

19 August 2014 8:55 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

After a decade floating around the Hollywood back lots trading dignity for cash and technical experience on A Little Princess and Great Expectations, Alfonso Cuarón realized he needed to emotionally involve himself in his source material, letting his personal life, his upbringing and his cultural experience bleed into the next project he chose to pursue. Part of the Nuevo Cine Mexicano auteurs who enjoyed considerable international success (Iñárritu’s Amores perros were interchangeably part of the same discourse), the resulting cinematic masterpiece Y tu mamá también was simultaneously a visually stunning portrait of Mexico (the film was shot by master cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki) and the fragility of friendship, and a heartbreaking meditation on the transient nature of youth teeming with life and love and the tragic beauty of naiveté. Unsurprisingly, this Venice Film Festival winning film would become Mexico’s top grossing film of all time in its first weekend. »
