[HotDocs Review] Hotel Dallas

30 April 2016 3:30 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Despite the name Hotel Dallas and general premise surrounding a replica of Southfork Ranch (where both the old and new Dallas series were filmed) built in Romania by an aspiring capitalist, husband and wife directing duo Sherng-Lee Huang and Livia Ungur‘s film is really about a country crippled under its past that’s still unsure of its future. It’s about art and its ability to speak to people’s hearts and souls whether seeking to do so or not. It’s also about a young girl who grew to embrace a vocation that one day allowed her to work alongside her childhood celebrity crush: Patrick Duffy. Part documentary, soap opera-y restaging of history, memory curio, and love letter to home, this art piece is as uniquely informative as imaginatively wild.

Do not expect convention or concrete answers beyond philosophical dreamscapes of poetic words trying their best to encapsulate »

Because it’s funny: The trailer for Jimmy Vestvood: Amerikan Hero, about an Iranian man who wins the Green Card lottery and moves to America and which stars Maz Jobrani and John Heard, actually looks a lot better than some of the mainstream comedies the studios have been churning out.

Berlinale ’16: Soy Nero review

16 February 2016 9:00 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Soy Nero review: A decent, slow-burning picture from filmmaker Rafi Pitts that is let down by a weaker second half.

Soy Nero review by Paul Heath, Berlin Film Festival, 2016. Soy Nero, or I Am Nero to translate to English, follows the story of Nero, a Mexico native who is looking to make the dangerous trip across the border into the United States Of America. He is intent on becoming a U.S. Citizen and be with his brother Jesus in Los Angeles. Obviously having made the journey before, to no avail, Nero jumps the fence once more, only this time making it past the border patrol, eventually ending up in Southern California, where he finds his brother in a plush Beverly Hills mansion. His dream of becoming a U.S. Citizen is heightened from seeing his sibling, who has seemingly made it big, and figures that his only way of quickly achieving the same, »

Berlin Film Review: ‘Soy Nero’

16 February 2016 7:30 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

At this stage, America’s war in the Middle East practically has its own dedicated cinematic subgenre, so all credit to Rafi Pitts’ confident, deceptively calm “Soy Nero” for finding in the conflict a surprisingly under-explored angle: the plight of foreign “Green Card soldiers” joining the U.S. Army in the hope of attaining citizenship. Following one such hapless recruit, played with vulnerable impassivity by Johnny Ortiz, as he negotiates the seemingly not-so-different border patrols of Mexico and an unspecified stretch of the Middle East, Pitts’ pristinely composed sixth feature is thoughtfully marked by the Iranian-born filmmaker’s own experience of amorphous national identity. Its ironies, however, are more heavily inscribed than we’ve come to expect from his work — or, indeed, that of his accomplished Romanian co-writer Razvan Radulescu. If that leaves the pic softer in impact at its end than its outset, its formal virtues are more consistently punchy. »

Berlin Film Festival: The Match Factory Represents Three Competition, Three Panorama Films (Exclusive)

22 January 2016 3:18 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — World sales company The Match Factory will represent three films world premiering in Competition at next month’s 66th Berlin Film Festival, including Danis Tanovic’s “Death in Sarajevo,” and three pics premiering in the fest’s Panorama program. The company is at Sundance this week with two world premieres in the World Dramatic Competition: Felix Van Groeningen’s “Belgica” and Nicolette Krebitz’s “Wild.”

The Match Factory builds on its long relationship with Tanovic, whose “No Man’s Land” won the foreign-language film Oscar, with “Death in Sarajevo.” The film centers on the financially troubled Hotel Evropa, where age-old disputes resurface and tensions escalate when a staff strike threatens to upset an important gala dinner. From the hotel roof to the cellar club, via the reception, laundry room and kitchen, the micro-cosmos of Hotel Evropa is turned into an ideological pressure cooker. The film is a co-production between Scca/pro. »
