Five Unmissable Buñuel Classics Tonight on TCM

4 hours ago | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Luis Buñuel movies on TCM tonight (photo: Catherine Deneuve in 'Belle de Jour') The city of Paris and iconoclastic writer-director Luis Buñuel are Turner Classic Movies' themes today and later this evening. TCM's focus on Luis Buñuel is particularly welcome, as he remains one of the most daring and most challenging filmmakers since the invention of film. Luis Buñuel is so remarkable, in fact, that you won't find any Hollywood hipster paying homage to him in his/her movies. Nor will you hear his name mentioned at the Academy Awards -- no matter the Academy in question. And rest assured that most film critics working today have never even heard of him, let alone seen any of his movies. So, nowadays Luis Buñuel is un-hip, un-cool, and unfashionable. He's also unquestionably brilliant. These days everyone is worried about freedom of expression. The clash of civilizations. The West vs. »

Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2015: #72. Otar Iosseliani’s Chant d’hiver

6 January 2015 8:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Winter Song

Director: Otar Iosseliani // Writer: Otar Iosseliani

With his 1984 classic title, Favorites of the Moon finally receiving a re-mastered blu-ray release for Us consumption earlier this year, we’re greatly anticipating Georgian director Otar Iosseliani’s latest film, his first since 2010’s Chantrapas. Titled Chant d’hiver (Winter Song), Iosseliani has been purposefully vague on the exact nature of the plot, stating only that the film is concerned with ‘the nonsense of revolutions” as well as “the dramatic chaos that every revolution brings.” Employing mostly a non-professional cast, French veterans Michel Piccoli and Pierre Etaix are apparently part of the known names involved.

Cast: Michel Piccoli, Pierre Etaix

Productions Co.: Studio 99, Pastorale Films.

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available.

Release Date: As far as festivals go, Berlin has been kinder to Otar Iosseliani (he won the Silver Bear for Monday Morning in 2002). His last film, 2010’s Chantrapas was selected »
