58th BFI London Film Festival – Oxi, An Act of Resistance (2014)

16 October 2014 4:39 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oxi, An Act of Resistance, 2014.

Directed by Ken McMullen.

Starring Gabriella Wright, Alexis Georgopoulou, Eleni Kallia and Dominique Pinon.

Synopsis:

A documentary essay linking classical Greek texts with the financial crisis in that same country over two and a half millenia later.

Oxi, An Act of Resistnace. That’s a nice subtitle. It sounds like that really well received documentary that was released last year, An Act of Killing. That was conventionally groundbreaking, making war criminals restage the acts that defined them.

But it’s an ambigious title. From the name alone, it’s difficult to know what you’re in for. After watching the film, you’d be little wiser. Frustrated, maybe, with a collection of mildly interesting quotations from Classical Greece, but not genuinely wiser.

The main narrative strand is of Sphinx (Gabriella Wright), an author, who is rewriting Oedipus Rex. A gentleman called the Investigator (played by Dominique Pinon, »

Specialty Box Office Preview: James Gandolfini’s ‘The Drop’, ‘The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Them’, More

11 September 2014 4:45 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The upcoming weekend boasts an onslaught of new Specialty titles vying for audiences. In all likelihood, however, many will have a short big screen life as the fall’s awards contenders ramp up and crowd others out. Five of this week’s dozen-plus newcomers are spotlighted here with Fox Searchlight’s The Drop edging on a wide release. The feature starring Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace and James Gandolfini will bow in over 800 theaters. TWC’s The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby also joins the fray with a platform release. The film also has two accompanying titles told from the perspective of its two main characters, which will be released in more limited runs in October. Magnolia will open its thriller Honeymoon in a day and date release while Dada Films’ Swearnet: The Movie breaks a movie record with the most F-bombs ever. And Cohen Media Group’s My Old Lady bowed Wednesday in limited release. »

My Old Lady – The Review

11 September 2014 11:02 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Starring Maggie Smith, Kevin Kline and Kristin Scott Thomas, My Old Lady is already my favorite film of the year. Based on the play by Israel Horovitz, who also adapted and directed for the screen, this charming “dramedy” hits the mark at every turn.

Kline plays Mathias Gold, a down on his luck New Yorker and recovering alcoholic who has inherited an enormous Paris apartment from his estranged father. Thinking he can quickly flip the valuable property for a fast buck, he shows up to find 90-year old tenant Mathilde Girard (Maggie Smith) living there with her adult daughter Chloe (Kristin Scott Thomas).

Mathias soon learns from local real estate agent Monsieur Lefebvre (played perfectly by scene stealing French character actor Dominique Pinon) that the deal is a “viager” – a uniquely French system whereby the buyer doesn’t take legal possession of the property until the seller dies (one of »

Movie Review – The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet (2014)

12 June 2014 6:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet, 2014.

Directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet.

Starring Callum Keith Rennie, Helena Bonham Carter, Dominique Pinon, Kyle Catlett, Judy Davis and Jakob Davies.

Synopsis:

Upon receiving the news that he has won an award from the Smithsonian Institute, the ten-year-old Ts Spivet leaves his family home on an adventure to collect his prize.

Whenever I watch a Jean-Pierre Jeunet picture, the feelings that it invokes are always the same. There is fascination and wonder, not disimilar to the feelings of open-mouthed awe at everything from the eyes of a blind man seeing for the first time. It might not actually be that revolutionary, but dressed up just right, it is still a previously unwitnessed treat. Like the eponymous Ts Spivet, you could also liken it to the inquisitve nature of a curious and innocently optimistic child, not knowing what’s coming but anticipating the nervous excitement of its arrival, »
