5 February 2014 9:26 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The 64th Berlin International Film Festival kicks off tomorrow, offering dozens (and dozens) of world premieres across multiple sections. By the time the festival's Golden and Silver Bears are handed out next weekend, we'll have a good idea as to some of the best world cinema coming to theaters near you (eventually, that is -- some of last year's program is just coming out Stateside now). In the past few years, the festival has proven itself -- perhaps more than it has in some time -- as an excellent platform for emerging and proven talent in world cinema to debut their work.

Caesar Must Die (Cesare deve morire) | DVD Review

1 January 2014 10:00 AM, PST | SmellsLikeScreenSpirit | See recent SmellsLikeScreenSpirit news »

Presented as a documentary about a prison production of William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, Paolo Taviani and Vittorio Taviani utilize Caesar Must Die as a means to play with the perception of reality to blur the line between truth and fiction. The film begins with the final scene of the production staged inside Rome’s high-security Rebibbia prison, presented to an audience of inmates and visitors. The color footage immediately switches to black-and-white as we flashback six months to the initial casting of the production. We meet each of the thespian inmates, getting a feel for why they were cast in their respective roles. The Taviani's are endlessly intrigued by the way that real life and theater reflect upon and influence each other. The inmates bring their own personalities into Shakespeare's characters, just as those characters inform the inmates' "real" lives. Shakespearean dialog is seamlessly intertwined with "real life" prison drama, »
