Daily | Toronto 2015 | Johnnie To’s Office

15 September 2015 5:03 AM, PDT | Keyframe | See recent Keyframe news »

Johnny To's Office (Hua Li Shang Ban Zou) is "without a doubt one of the best films of the year," declares Notebook editor Daniel Kasman. The 3D musical with songs by 80s Taiwanese hit-maker Lo Taiyu and starring Yun-Fat Chow, Sylvia Chang, Eason Chan, Wei Tang and Siu-Fai Cheung, "is pure joy to look at, the sets (designed by Wong Kar-wai’s essential collaborator William Chang!) rendered as abstract stagecraft, a mix of Alain Resnais's last adaptations of Alan Ayckbourn plays, The Ladies Man, PlayTime and Tout va bien." We're collecting more reviews and we've got the trailer. » - David Hudson »

Tiff 2015. Correspondences #4

Fallen Objects. Image: Courtesy of the artistHey Fernando, are you at a film right now? Sneaking away from the festival always feels so wrong, doesn't it? We're here to grind through, to fill every empty moment in our day with yet another film or another few dashed words of writing, and so stepping out of the multiplex to grab a leisurely meal with a friend or to explore a new neighborhood inspires in me nothing but guilt. Luckily, the festival has thought of such things and has given me reasons to get away from the festival center...more films! The Wavelengths section, which curates a more radical type of cinema than the rest of the fest, has often featured video art pieces installed both near and far during the festival (you may recall last year I reported on a wonderful piece in Future Projections, the old name of the Wavelengths »

Harry Shearer Will Return to The Simpsons After All (Along With Everyone Else)

7 July 2015 11:39 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

There was a big scare in Springfield a couple of months ago, when it looked as though Harry Shearer, who voices many of The Simpsons' secondary denizens, including Mr. Burns, Waylon Smithers, and Ned Flanders, would be departing. But fear not! Fox has announced that Shearer, along with the show's five other principal voice actors — Dan Castellaneta, Julie Kavner, Nancy Cartwright, Yeardley Smith, and Hank Azaria — will be returning for two more seasons. The two-season pickup extends the show's phenomenal run to 28 seasons (it's already the longest-running scripted show on TV). All's well in Springfield: Homer and Marge aren't breaking up, and neither are Mr. Burns and Smithers. »

Ingenious Godard Came up with Solution for Greece Debt Crisis: Why Is No One Listening?

30 June 2015 3:32 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Jean-Luc Godard in his youthful days. Jean-Luc Godard solution for the Greek debt crisis: 'Therefore' copyright payments A few years ago, Nouvelle Vague filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard, while plugging his Film Socialisme, chipped in with a surefire solution for the seemingly endless – and bottomless – Greek debt crisis. In July 2011, Godard told The Guardian's Fiachra Gibbons: The Greeks gave us logic. We owe them for that. It was Aristotle who came up with the big 'therefore'. As in, 'You don't love me any more, therefore ...' Or, 'I found you in bed with another man, therefore ...' We use this word millions of times, to make our most important decisions. It's about time we started paying for it. If every time we use the word therefore, we have to pay 10 euros to Greece, the crisis will be over in one day, and the Greeks will not have to sell the Parthenon to the Germans. »
