Durban Festival: ‘Boy’ Helmer’s Path to Screen Full of Curves

17 July 2014 9:25 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lagos-born helmer Chika Anadu took an unconventional path toward filmmaking, which led to her first feature, “B for Boy,” which has its South African premiere in Durban on July 19. “I never considered it as a profession,” she says. “No one around me was doing it as a child.”

Instead, Anadu moved to England to pursue some high-powered degrees: first, with a B.A. in law and criminology, then with a master’s degree in human and sustainable development in Africa.

It wasn’t until she moved back to Lagos that she found herself at the French cultural center, watching the sorts of foreign films she fell for in England. On the day she watched “Cinema Paradiso,” she was hooked. “That’s when I realized I wanted to be a filmmaker,” she says.

Anadu proved to be a fast study. Having worked her way through close to a decade of higher learning, »

Chef! review

26 June 2014 10:23 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Jon Favreau directs and stars in a more personal, palate cleansing film with Chef. Here's our review.

To paraphrase The Simpsons' Ralph Wiggum, “the food truck symbolises obviousness” in Chef. Jon Favreau's first film since 2011's Cowboys & Aliens is a back-to-basics personal comedy film that probably cost about as much as the catering budget of that film or either of his Iron Man efforts.

What a coincidence then, that it also stars Favreau as the lead character. Chef Carl Casper was once the next big thing in cuisine, but has since settled into a creative rut at a restaurant owned by Riva (Dustin Hoffman). He's been serving his boss' menu for five years, but finally loses his tether when he gets a very public critical drubbing from acerbic food writer Ramsey Michel (Oliver Platt).

Filmistaan Review: Divided by history, united by cinema

8 June 2014 8:31 PM, PDT | DearCinema.com | See recent DearCinema.com news »

In a region wracked by hostility, communal tension and the historical baggage of partition, Cinema can be the balm that soothes and unites the divided people of India and Pakistan. That is the message of Filmistaan, a low budget gem that celebrates the power of movies with humour, grace and even a little pathos. It is also a welcome addition to Bollywood’s increasing staple of mainstream yet meaningful cinema.

Though ostensibly an ode to popular Bollywood melodramas such as Maine Pyar Kiya and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, the film is closer in spirit to world cinema classics like Cinema Paradiso, Life is Beautiful and No Man’s Land in its examination of the futility of all conflict and assertion of a common humanity that binds us all. And nowhere is this brotherhood of man more evident than through the shared love of movies. People forget their caste, colour or »

“Cinema Paradiso”: The Top 25 (Best Foreign Language Feature)

2 June 2014 1:09 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Here we go again folks with another Top 25 today. This time around I’ll be taking a break from the technical categories (partially because there’s only one more of those left to hit), this time going with a mini-major, as it were. What would that be, you ask? Well, this would be the rather eclectic Best Foreign Language Feature field. The category is one that usually has a more interesting list of nominees than the eventual winner that’s chosen, but there’s still lots more to it than that and plenty to like. The winners over the years have been very unique, with certain choices being almost downright inspired on the part of Oscar voters. I have a few specific titles I’ll be citing below in detail, but I know how the game works here. You all mostly just want to see the lists I do anyway, »

Solid Performances Make "The Best Offer" Just Good Enough

12 May 2014 11:15 AM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

This one goes to the best offer.

Giuseppe Tornatore, known to most for Cinema Paradiso (1988), wrote and directed The Best Offer (2013), a darkish thriller about an auctioneer, Virgil Oldman (Geoffrey Rush), who slowly falls in love with an enigmatic heiress (Sylvia Hoeks) who wishes to sell her vast collection, but is terrified to leave her family estate or even be seen by other people.  As he takes an inventory of her home, Oldman finds an array of gears and machinery that, with the help of a charming mechanical wizard, Robert (Jim Sturgess), slowly comes together into a valuable, historical piece.  That is Oldman's business.  That and picking out the best works from his auctions through his accomplice Billy (Donald Sutherland), a failed painter.  Oldman might have gone through the lady's collection as usual, acquiring only the best for himself and auctioning the rest.  But, of course, he falls in love with her. »

Tribeca Film Review: ’5 to 7′

23 April 2014 9:22 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Aspiring novelist Brian Bloom (Anton Yelchin) receives nothing but rejection letters from publishers, but when it comes to romance, he has considerably better luck, earning coy encouragement from Arielle (Berenice Marlohe), a beautiful French woman he spies smoking on a New York sidewalk. There’s just one catch: She’s married, and the couple can only meet between the hours of 5 and 7, which isn’t nearly enough to satisfy this smitten scribbler. Courageously sentimental in an age of irony, Victor Levin’s refreshingly articulate “5 to 7” delivers romance of the sort thought lost since the days of Audrey Hepburn, for those who appreciate such finery. And who doesn’t?

Truth be told, the times are startlingly harsh for stories designed to make audiences actually feel something, and “5 to 7” risks ridicule from those who can’t abide Levin’s earnest, heart-on-his-sleeve approach. Like his naive 24-year-old protagonist, Levin would rather crash and »

13 April 2014 4:59 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hong Kong – The Beijing International Film Festival which gets underway later this week (April 16-23, 2014) has completed its line-up with additional restored and classic movies and contemporary world cinema choices.

The additions take to 282 the total number of films set to screen and 176 the number that will play in its Beijing Film Panorama.

The five film ‘Restoration’ section is headed by 1928 silent film “Underground,” by British director Anthony Asquith, charting the triangular relationship of two men and a woman on London’s underground or Tube railway. Other titles include “Laborer’s Love,” “New Women,” “Spring in a Small Town,” and “Myriads of Lights.”

The festival has added a screening of “Giant,” bringing to three its selection of James Dean classics, alongside the previously announced “Rebel Without A Cause” and “East of Eden.” Also screening in the same ‘Classical Retrospective’ section is a trio of Guiseppe Tornatore titles “The Legend of 1900,” “Malena” and “Cinema Paradiso. »

Crows review Child kidnap turned into dreamy cinema

10 April 2014 2:20 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Dorota Kedzierzawska's strange film, in which a love-starved girl snatches another child, eschews the horror of the situation

Before watching Mark Cousins's cine-essay A Story of Children and Film, I was unaware of one of the weirdest movies he references: Wrony, or Crows, made in 1994 by Polish director Dorota Kedzierzawska. In Crows, it is not clear if what we are watching is fundamentally innocent or fundamentally tainted. A young girl nicknamed Crow (Karolina Ostrozna) is neglected by her single mum, who is always leaving her alone in the flat, or locking her out of the flat while she is having sex. Angry, lonely and confused, the girl wanders the city she is at one stage chased and menaced by a creepy male figure on the seashore. Then she kidnaps a toddler from someone's front garden and takes her away, insisting that the infant must call her "mummy", and »

Blood, Music and Disco Balls: This is How to Host a Film Premiere

3 April 2014 12:19 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As if the prospect of seeing Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton play vampires wasn't delicious enough, Cinema Paradiso Events created an immersive preview experience for "Only Lovers Left Alive" on Tuesday night in New York City to escalate the film to a new level of gory goodness.  In case you haven't heard, 

Jim Jarmusch's new crypto-trancey "Only Lovers Left Alive" stars Swinton as Eve and Hiddleston as Adam, two vampires navigating the modern world. The April 1st launch of this love story began with a screening at Manhattan's Sunshine Cinema and concluded with a live concert at Santos Party House.  Selected pieces from artist Jordan Eagles, showcasing his multidimensional art, crafted using blood, copper, gauze, and resin, were projected on the walls of both venues. From the foyer and theater screens at Sunshine to the halls, walls and even moving bodies at Santos, the translucent art transformed the space. »

Italian Film Festival USA of St. Louis Kicks Off This Weekend

2 April 2014 8:01 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Which should be exciting news for those unaware we even had an annual Italian Film Festival here in St. Louis. We do, and it’s been going on for ten years now. It’s not well-promoted in general but it must be in the local Italian community because I’ve attended on the past and they always draw huge crowds (the free admission probably doesn’t hurt).

St. Louisans can enjoy the local premiere of eleven recent Italian films at this year’s Italian Film Festival USA of St. Louis. The films are shown in their original language with English subtitles at 3 venues on the campus of Washington University: Lab Sciences 300, Brown Hall and Steinberg Auditorium.

Watch: 'Bootleg Cinema Paradiso,' Doc on Piracy, for Free

27 March 2014 10:23 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When most people think of movie piracy, they think of entitled suburbanites who don't want to cough up 10 bucks to go to the movies. But what of a country where access to art house or classic films is limited? The new short documentary from Vice's Motherboard site, "Bootleg Cinema Paradiso," puts a spotlight on a place where movie piracy isn't just widespread, but possibly essential to encouraging cinephilia. The short follows bootleg distributor Santos Demonios and his friend, El Chino, who runs a bootleg DVD store in a Lima shopping mall. The two speak of the unavailability of independent films in Peru, not to mention the slow internet speeds that make Instant Viewing on Netflix more trouble than it's worth. Chino and Demonios give people in Peru (and other South American countries, as many people travel just to buy bootlegs) a chance to brush up on Godard, Truffaut, Hitchcock, and »

Rome – Italy’s Taormina Film Festival is forging closer ties with Argentina’s Pantalla Pinamar fest, in an effort to strengthen the existing axis between the Italian and Argentinian film industries.

Taormina’s general manager Tiziana Rocca (pictured) and artistic director Mario Sesti have formalized a “twin” status between the two events. They will be bringing the director’s cut of Giuseppe Tornatore’s “Cinema Paradiso” and two other Italo pics to the Buenos Aires-based fest which kicks off on March 8.

The two countries first signed a film co-production deal in 2007, ratified by their parliaments in 2011, allowing funding for the development of Argentine pics with Italian co-producers attached.

The most recent announced prospective co-prod between the two countries is upcoming Pope Francis biopic “Historia de un cura” (A Priest’s Tale) helmed by Alejandro Agresti, being mounted by Argentina’s Pampa Films.

Arrow Films Unleashes ‘The Killers’ and ‘Phantom of the Paradise’ on Blu-ray

19 February 2014 10:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Most home video releases are mass produced and marketed by faceless conglomerates interested only in separating you from your hard-earned cash. If you look closely though you’ll find smaller labels who love movies as much as you do and show it by delivering quality Blu-rays and DVDs of beloved films and cult classics, often loaded with special features, new transfers, and more. But yes, they still want your cash, too. Arrow Films is not only the UK’s best specialty Blu-ray/DVD label, but they’re also one of the most exciting regardless of geographical boundaries. Part of their appeal can be found in their unabashed affection for genre entertainment, but they’re equally adept and interested in more highbrow fare. They love movies as much as we do, and the proof is in a catalog diverse enough to include both Cinema Paradiso and Hell Comes to Frogtown. They have two new releases hitting UK shelves »
