New on Video: ‘F for Fake’

3 November 2014 6:55 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

F for Fake

Written and directed by Orson Welles

France/Iran/West Germany, 1973

The most enjoyable thing about F for Fake is that Orson Welles seems to be having such fun with it. It’s rare to see a filmmaker displaying, though his actual presence and through the tools of his trade, such an unadulterated delight in expression. In fiction films, this sort of exuberance has to be limited, or at least contained to the degree of being still in the service of the narrative. Documentary films usually have their agenda or message, so there shouldn’t be too much to distract from these larger aims. Experimental films revel in the technique of filmmaking like Welles does here, but they are commonly done with such strained seriousness that they don’t necessarily feel, for lack of a better word, fun. Perhaps the reason F for Fake defies these general tendencies »

Blu-ray, DVD Release: My Winnipeg

21 October 2014 8:03 AM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: Jan. 20, 2015

Price: DVD $29.95, Blu-ray $39.95

Studio: Criterion

The geographical dead center of North America and the beloved birthplace of Guy Maddin (Brand Upon the Brain), Winnipeg, Canada is the frosty and mysterious star of Maddin’s 2007 “docu-fantasia” My Winnipeg.

A work of memory and imagination, My Winnipeg burrows into what the filmmaker calls “the heart of the heart” of the continent, conjuring a city as delightful as it is fearsome, populated by sleepwalkers and hockey aficionados. Take part in Winnipeg’s annual epic scavenger hunt! Pay your respects to the racehorses forever frozen in the river! Help judge the yearly homoerotic Golden Boy pageant! What is real and what is fantasy is left up to the viewer to sort out in Maddin’s hypnotic, expertly conceived paean to that wonderful and terrifying place known as My Hometown.

'Sword of Doom' and 'My Winnipeg' Coming to Criterion January 2015

15 October 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Perhaps Criterion has been paying attention to my Best Movies posts. Next week sees the release of Federico Fellini's La Dolce Vita on Blu-ray, which was the first installment in my Best Movies feature and a title I'll be reviewing later this week, and now my third installment, Kihachi Okamoto's The Sword of Doom will be arriving on January 6 with a new high-definition digital restoration. Unfortunately the Sword of Doom release won't come with any new features, though the film, Hiroshi Murai's cinematography, Masaru Sato's score and an audio commentary from Stephen Prince will do for me as that is a title that simply must be part of my collection. Also coming in January is Rainer Werner Fassbinder's The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant on January 13, Guy Maddin's My Winnipeg on January 20, Preston Sturges's 1942 comedy The Palm Beach Story starring Claudette Colbert »

The 2nd edition of the Urban Lens film festival will screen over 35 non-fiction films from India, South Africa, Peru, Chile, Colombia and Canada, in an attempt to engage with how the ‘city’ has found a cinematic expression in non-fiction films over a period of time.

This year, the festival will also feature specially curated package of films from the Films Division archive, special screenings and a public talk.  Entry to all films is free.

Telluride Film Festival 2014: Most Anticipated

26 August 2014 8:17 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Main Street during The Telluride Film Festival

The Telluride Film Festival seemingly appears overnight against the gorgeous backdrop of rugged mountains. It lasts just four days but in fact it takes more than a month of intensive labor to transform the elementary school, high school, hockey rink, library, the park in the middle of town and a masonic temple into theaters. Now in its 41st year,up until recently this hallowed Labor Day weekend event has long been a quiet fixture on the festival circuit. As most of the festival world knows, the escalating word of mouth about the quality of Telluride’s unofficial premieres caused the Toronto International Film Festival to issue an ultimatum to those hoping to land choice spots in the fall line-up: if you choose to screen at Telluride first, your film will be pushed back on Tiff’s slate. Realistically- Toronto has little to fear from Telluride besides buzz. »

7 True Stories and the Autobiographical Films They Inspired

24 April 2014 8:02 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

All creations are, in some way, autobiographical. As the merging of imagination and experience, at least a little bit of the creator’s self is infused in their creation. At times, it’s little more than a thematic hint, like Ethan Hawke’s discussion of his failing marriage in Before Sunset, as the actor himself went through a public break-up. It can also be the combination of memory and fantasy, like Guy Maddin’s eccentric documentary about his hometown and childhood memories, My Winnipeg. And other times, cinema becomes the therapist investigating familial turmoil, like Sarah Polley’s excellent Stories We Tell. On occasion, the film itself becomes a revealing cinematic journal, one that makes its audience witting (or unwitting) voyeurs snooping through private lives with a depth tabloids can only dream of. These films allow the filmmaker moments of introspection, revenge, and confusion that make for compelling narratives, but even more fascinating autobiographies when you know »
