Film Review: ‘Itzhak’

Film Review: ‘Itzhak’
Good music and good company make “Itzhak” a pleasure, though those seeking a methodical career overview should look elsewhere than this genial personality sketch of the world-famous violinist. Alison Chernick’s documentary captures the Manhattan-dwelling subject at home and on tour around the globe, hobnobbing with classical colleagues as well as the likes of close friend Alan Alda and former Potus Obama. It’s a portrait custom-made for public television (and duly co-produced by PBSAmerican Masters), though one that would also appeal to a select audience in limited theatrical exposure.

Itzhak Perlman was born in 1945 Tel Aviv to Polish émigré parents who were non-musical, though they quickly sussed their prodigy son’s talent. Others did not, if only because they thought he couldn’t get far on the leg braces that polio forced on him at age 4 — never mind that the violin is not customarily played with one’s feet. Nonetheless, at 13 he

Sundance: HBO Buys ‘Price of Everything’

Sundance: HBO Buys ‘Price of Everything’
HBO Documentary Films has nabbed “The Price of Everything,” a look at the world of contemporary art, in advance of its Sundance Film Festival debut.

Directed by Oscar-nominated director Nathaniel Kahn, “The Price of Everything” examines the headaches associated with pricing art and the vagaries of a market based around subjective opinions of what is hot and valuable. It looks at collectors, dealers, auctioneers and artists in weaving together its cultural and commerical tapestry, and features interviews with the likes of Jeff Koons, Gerhard Richter, Njideka Akunyili Crosby, and Larry Poons.

The company has acquired U.S. TV rights to the film and will also open it in theaters in at least a dozen U.S. markets prior to its premiere on HBO. It debuts in Sundance on Jan. 19. Kahn previously worked with HBO on his 2004 documentary “My Architect” and his short “Two Hands.”

Borderline

Counterpoints to the Narrative Lichtundfire Gallery, NYC May 31 - June 30, 2017 The exhibition is jointly organized through Lichtundfire and Katharine Carter & Associates, D. Dominick Lombardi, Curator.

The concept of walls and borders has been tossed around with such frequency of late, and with such politically charged implications, it seems almost anticlimactic that artists would address this notion within a primarily aesthetic context. Counterpoints to the Narrative curated by D. Dominick Lombardi, features a group of artists exploring ideas that are simple, yet provocative, visuals of this complex subject matter. Sparky Campanella, Mark Sharp, and Martin Weinstein, two painters, one photographer, whose work, seen in combination is much more than a contrast in method and style; rather, it is a meditation on visuality and viewership. These artists are creating work that explores some of the ideas Rudolf Arnheim has put forth regarding the contrast between "seeing into" a work of art, and "seeing as.

Jennifer Tilly Will Probably Be "in Every Chucky Movie Till the End of Time"

Jennifer Tilly Will Probably Be
Chucky will never die — not for Jennifer Tilly, anyway.

When The Hollywood Reporter bumped into the veteran actress at Moca's 38th annual gala (honoring legendary pop artist Jeff Koons) on April 29 in downtown L.A., a bemused Tilly admitted that she just wrapped filming on yet another installment of the killer doll franchise.

This one's titled Cult of Chucky, and even Tilly seems to get a kick out of the fact that she's still a part of the series this many years later. She joined the Chucky family in 1998, playing Tiffany in Bride of Chucky, and has appeared...

Directed by Pappi Corsicato (Libera, The Seed Of Discord), the film offers an in-depth portrait of Schnabel, an enfant terrible of the New York arts scene who has a parallel career as a filmmaker, directing such features as Before Night Falls and The Diving Bell And The Butterfly.

Al Pacino, Jeff Koons, Bono, Laurie Anderson and Willem Dafoe are among the contributors. The film includes material from Schnabel’s own archive of home movies and photographs.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Review: Sequel Starring Chris Pratt and a Too-Cute Baby Groot Pumps Up the Volume, Action and Craziness

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Review: Sequel Starring Chris Pratt and a Too-Cute Baby Groot Pumps Up the Volume, Action and Craziness
Guardians of the Universe Vol. 2 is never less than explosively, even ornately inventive — Doctor Strange, by comparison, is a chaste classic of Shaker design — with the perhaps unavoidable trade-off that it’s not always as breezily, casually inventive as the 2014 Guardians, either. But the movie will make fans happy, very happy, and it will reduce everyone else to a mass of cooing, goo-goo-ing ninnies, all in the thrall of a character named Baby Groot.

Baby Groot, the (literal) offshoot of Vin Diesel’s stoic tree-thing from the first Guardians movie, looks like the Little Prince reincarnated as a whisk broom.
