Special Mention: Un chien andalou

Directed by Luis Buñuel

Written by Salvador Dalí and Luis Buñuel

France, 1929

Genre: Experimental Short

The dream – or nightmare – has been a staple of horror cinema for decades. In 1929, Luis Bunuel joined forces with Salvador Dali to create Un chien andalou, an experimental and unforgettable 17-minute surrealist masterpiece. Buñuel famously said that he and Dalí wrote the film by telling one another their dreams. The film went on to influence the horror genre immensely. After all, even as manipulative as the “dream” device is, it’s still a proven way to jolt an audience. Just ask Wes Craven, who understood this bit of cinematic psychology when he dreamt of the central force behind A Nightmare on Elm Street, a film intended to be an exploration of surreal horror. David Lynch is contemporary cinema’s most devoted student of Un chien andalou – the severed ear at »

Tiff 2015. Wavelengths, Part One: The Short Films

12 September 2015 1:26 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Youth On The MARCHThere are 48 individual films screening in the Wavelengths section of this year’s Toronto International Film Festival. The relative importance of this section, amidst the vast array of offerings in this relatively huge festival, depends on your taste in movies, of course, to say nothing of your specific objectives. If you’re coming to Toronto to try to score a hot tip in this year’s Oscar race, well . . . I feel sorry for you on a number of levels. But Wavelengths is unlikely to be your jam. Originally conceived exclusively as a showcase for experimental and non-narrative films (hence the section’s title, a direct tribute to avant-garde master and Toronto native son Michael Snow), Wavelengths now encompasses the edgier, less commercial side of art cinema. This is the first of two preview essays, and my aim is to cover everything in the section. These are the »

Man With a Movie Camera review – visionary, transformative 1929 experimental film

30 July 2015 1:40 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Dziga Vertov’s experimental silent documentary upends reality in ways that are still dizzying, thrilling and strangely sexy

The spirit of punk throbs in this extraordinary silent classic from 1929, now on cinema rerelease. Dziga Vertov’s experimental documentary essay remains fascinating after all these years, as potent as an exposed fragment of sodium. It shows scenes of city life in Moscow, Odessa and Kiev, and the credits describe it as an “experiment in cinematic communication of visible events”, which doesn’t do justice to its dedication to transforming and upending reality. This film is visibly excited about the new medium’s possibility, dense with ideas, packed with energy: it echoes Un Chien Andalou, anticipates Vigo’s À Propos De Nice and the New Wave generally, and even Riefenstahl’s Olympia. There are trick-shots, split-screens, stop-motion animation, slo-mo and speeded up action. Welles never had as much fun with his train-set »

Leonardo Sbaragalia, Rachida Brakni to Star in ‘11,247’

29 June 2015 4:40 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris – Leonardo Sbaragalia (“Wild Tales”) and Rachida Brakni (“The Straight Line”) are attached to star in “11,247,” a psycho thriller set up at Spain’s Tornasol Films and Argentina’s Haddock Films, producers of Oscar-winning “The Secret in their Eyes.”

Like “Secret,” “11,247” explores what its director, Gabriel Mamruth, calls “the collateral damage” of Argentina’s Dirty War, waged by its Junta dictatorship, with a character setting out to discover the truth behind an life-changing event: Here, the discovery by a Spain-based Interpol agent, that his father, who supposedly disappeared during the dictatorship, is still alive, living under a false identity in Paris.

But when Lucas finally confronts his father, the truth is not as black-and-white as he may have expected, Mamruth explained at Small is Biutiful, a key Spanish film project forum that, part of the Paris Spanish film festival Different 8!, took place Friday in Paris.

Rodolfo de Souza (“Cartagena”) will play Lucas’ father. »
