Classic Movie Review: Exotica, a Canadian thriller from 1994!

20 December 2016 3:07 AM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Sexplortation drama is a very difficult movie subject to take serious, for example Demi Moores movie "Striptease" from 1996 did everything wrong with a story about strippers life but poorly executed with uncomfortable actors and actresses. But 2 years before that, one movie from Canada manage to do everything right. "Exotica" from 1994 with a superb director from Egypt Atom Egoyan, and a great Star Trek actor Bruce Greenwood on the cast list, Exotica not only makes a sexplortation but an exiting thriller and a heart feeling drama and the story is not told but added in like a puzzle piece by piece. Story: Francis Brown (Bruce Greenwood) is a Tax Auditor, who lives a lonely life. He is visiting a strip club named Exotica...

Atom Egoyan, Cinematographer Paul Sarossy on Vengeance Tale ‘Remember’

19 November 2016 9:21 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Bydgoszcz, Poland — After 27 years and a dozen films together, Atom Egoyan and Dp Paul Sarossy can just about communicate telepathically. So their most recent film together, the vengeance story “Remember” — a chillingly topical exploration of racism lurking just beneath the surface of an apparently wholesome America — is all the more surprising for its departure from the style they’ve developed through the course of work from “Exotica” to “Where the Truth Lies” via “The Sweet Hereafter.”

The Canadian pair, who received together the Director Duo Award at Poland’s Camerimage fest on Friday, presented the film at a sold out screening as the final main competition film at the Opera Nova in Bydgoszcz.

Egoyan says the main character of “Remember,” introduced as a Holocaust survivor with dementia who has just lost his last anchor point, his wife Ruth, needed a visual style that was more “untethered.”

Leonard Cohen Was the Natural Born King of Movie Soundtracks

13 November 2016 8:55 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Leonard Cohen, who died last week at 82, was a poet, a pop star, a womanizer, a monk, a poor man, a rich man, a joker, a sage. But for those of us who are movie fanatics, he also occupied a role as extraordinary as it was utterly accidental: He was one of the most natural-born composers of movie soundtracks who ever lived. I say “accidental” because if you look at the films that made indelible use of Cohen’s music, there isn’t one among them in which the songs in question were written or recorded for the movie. In each case, the songs were composed several years beforehand and appeared on one of Cohen’s 14 studio albums.

The mystique of a great Cohen soundtrack was tied to the fact that he was almost never a Top 40 artist. If, like me, you followed his career from a distance, when you »

Alias Grace” follows the true story of poor Irish immigrant Grace Marks who, along with domestic servant James McDermott, was convicted of murdering her employer Thomas Kinnear and housekeeper Nancy Montgomery in 1843. While James was hanged, Grace received life imprisonment for her role in the crime.

Watch a Video Essay Exploring the Search For a Paradise Lost in Atom Egoyan’s ‘Exotica’

18 February 2016 9:35 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

If you’ve only kept up with Atom Egoyan‘s recent output then you are missing out on some of the finest dramas independent cinema has to offer. A few years before his 1997 masterpiece A Sweet Hereafter, he gave us Exotica, a deeply layered drama featuring the intertwining stories of characters who frequent a Canadian strip club, and how they attempt to reach a catharsis.

For fans of the film (and if you’re not, watch it and return as spoilers abound), a fantastic new video essay from Digger Deeper looks at the search for a paradise lost within the film. “These characters seek to transcend their singular pain to find solace in others, but find themselves continually arrested, forced to to live in a fractured world of unforgotten trauma,” he argues. Exploring the voyeurism and disconnected perspectives in the film, check out the video essay below for one of »
