New York Film Festival 2016: Sieranevada Gets Another New Clip

6 hours ago

A decade after jumpstarting the Romanian New Wave with The Death of Mr. Lazarescu, Cristi Puiu returns with a virtuosic chamber drama set largely within a labyrinthine Bucharest apartment where a cantankerous extended family has gathered forty days after its patriarch’s death (and three days after the Charlie Hebdo attacks in Paris). Rituals and meals are anticipated and delayed, doors open and close, and the camera hovers at thresholds and in corridors. As claustrophobia mounts, heated, humorous exchanges—about the old Communist days and the present age of terror—coalesce into a brilliantly staged and observed portrait of personal and social disquiet. “Sieranevada” was directed by Cristi Puiu.

Interview: Stephen Lang Talks Don’t Breathe (Exclusive)

23 August 2016 5:52 PM, PDT

Quickly judging a person just on their appearance is a misguided trait that many people take on, as they fall into society’s trap of not placing value of appreciating others for their personalities first. Swiftly being placed in dangerous situations that reveal people’s character as they struggle to protect themselves ultimately proves whether or not those instant intuitions are indeed accurate. Director Fede Alvarez, who co-wrote the script for his new horror film, ‘Done Breathe,’ with Rodo Sayagues, stunningly proved that people’s natural reactions in times of despair offer the most accurate insight into their temperament. Actor Stephen Lang plays one of the main complex characters in the thriller, which  [ Read More ]

Ang Lee’s newest film will premiere at this year’s New York Film Festival. The new movie was the first to be shot natively in 4K digital HD and 3D at 120 frames-per-second.
