Cold Feet finale review – I dreaded this reunion but it was good to catch up with old friends

24 October 2016 2:02 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Thirteen years on, this series reboot has been full of warmth, wit and soap-opera moments

Is that it, already? The end of Cold Feet (ITV)? It’s going out with a party, Adam’s wrap-party for his 40s. What, it’s only his 49th, he complains. Shut up, Adam, you’re 50. And here’s A-ha to prove it. Plus the Eurythmics, Odyssey, Abba, Bob Marley, Sister Sledge and lots more age-appropriate dad-disco music.

The party, arranged by will-they-won’t-they Tina is the main timeframe for the episode, from which it dips repeatedly back into the recent past. Yo-yo TV, is the technical term. So here’s Karen signing a hot new writer to her new publishing house. And celebrating with a huge advance (know what I mean) from her inappropriately young, it-was-meant-to-be-a-one-off, social-media partner.

Masters of Cinema Cast – Episode 52 – Soul Power

22 July 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

We return with a look at Soul Power, enjoy!

From Masters of Cinema:

Soul Power is a vérité documentary – compiled entirely from footage shot in 1974 – of the astonishing back-to-Africa 3-day music festival “Zaire ‘74”. It was held in Kinshasa ahead of the biggest boxing event of all time: the Muhammad AliGeorge Foreman “Rumble in the Jungle”. Directed by Jeffrey Levy-Hinte, editor of Leon Gast’s Oscar®-winning (Best Documentary) When We Were Kings, and sourced from the same archival pool, Soul Power features a legendary line-up of African and African-diaspora musicians – all of whom are at the very peak of their creative powers.

Alongside Ali’s wit and wisdom – profoundly lyrical in its own right – vibrant street scenes of downtown Kinshasa, and “fly-on-the-wall” footage of the festival’s staging, rehearsals, and jams, the three nights of concerts (lensed by Albert Maysles and a host of other legendary cameramen) offer electrifying performances by James Brown, »

19 May 2016 7:44 PM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

It was a disco theme for amfAR’s  23rd annual Cinema Against AIDS event at the Hotel Du Cap at the Cannes Film Festival, and that meant none other than The Village People and Sister Sledge invaded the ritzy party, each doing one of their iconic songs ( “Ymca”  and “We Are Family” — you guess who did what). The event which counts Harry Winston, Bold Films and The Weinstein Company among its loyal sponsors (along with Moet Hennessey and Renault) again raised tons of dough… »
