'Syrian Love Story' wins Sheffield Doc/Fest prize

10 June 2015 5:45 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Other winners include a film about the early years of Greenpeace and Us documentary 3½ Minutes, 10 Bullets.

Sean McAllister’s A Syrian Love Story has won the Grand Jury prize at Sheffield Doc/Fest (June 5-10).

Acclaimed British documentary filmmaker McAllister, whose credits include The Liberace in Baghdad and The Reluctant Revolutionary, shot the feature over four years.

It follows the plight of one Syrian family as they are forced to leave the war torn country and the impact it has on the family’s relationships. During the filming process, McAllister himself spent time in a Syrian jail when the authorities seized his camera. 

On behalf of the jury, Ruby Chen of Cnex China said: “The jury were enamoured by this Bergmanesque portrait of a relationship and love, taking place against an ever-changing and tumultuous backdrop.

“Delivering unusual gender portraits it explores vulnerabilities, looking at the concept of belonging, providing a unique and intimate portrait of disillusionment.”

Time Machine: Sensational Scarlett J. in Purple

7 May 2015 8:48 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Scarlett Johansson Oscar dress Scarlett Johansson at the Oscars Looking great in a long purple dress, Scarlett Johansson displays her tight-fitting costume and bare back at the 83rd Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Oscar 2011 co-host and Best Actor nominee James Franco (for Danny Boyle's 127 Hours) thus introduced Johansson and fellow Oscar presenter Matthew McConaughey: "I am six degrees of Kevin Bacon away from our next two presenters. Figure it out on the Internet." Well, if you're lucky. Some have remarked that Franco was a more effective Oscar host online, where he tweeted some of the evening's to-dos, than on the stage of the Kodak Theatre. His fellow equally panned Oscarcast host was actress Anne Hathaway. Scarlett Johansson movies Scarlett Johansson has been featured in more than 40 films since her debut at age 10 in Rob Reiner's North, back in 1994. Johansson, in fact, »

Alien Outpost | Review

26 January 2015 7:00 AM, PST | SmellsLikeScreenSpirit | See recent SmellsLikeScreenSpirit news »

Stylistically, Raisani borrows a lot from Tim Hetherington and Sebastian Junger's documentary Restrepo. In the case of Alien Outpost, the handheld documentary footage is shot by a crew sent to capture what life is like on a military outpost. Little do they know, they are being sent into the heart of darkness. As it turns out, the outpost is not only threatened by the presence of heavies in the area, but the local townspeople have inexplicably taken up arms in support of the heavies. At first, this new phenomena seems to be a heavy-handed resurgence of anti-Americanism; but, thankfully, Alien Outpost eventually reveals a much more valid reason for the Iranians' unconditional support of the heavies. »

A Veteran’s View of ‘American Sniper’ (Guest Column)

16 January 2015 12:30 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paul Rieckhoff is CEO and founder of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (Iava), an Iraq veteran, and the author of “Chasing Ghosts: Failures and Facades in Iraq: A Soldier’s Perspective.” He offers his thoughts on Clint Eastwood’s “American Sniper” in a guest column.

I’ve seen just about every film about the Iraq War ever made. I’ve produced and associate produced a few. I even appeared in one (for about a millisecond). And without a doubt, “American Sniper” is the single best work of film about the Iraq War ever made.

Now, it’s not the most complex film. Not the deepest film. Not even the most provocative. But in terms of storytelling, action, emotion, production and performance, attention to detail and especially the frighteningly accurate soundscape, there’s been nothing else close that’s been made since my platoon entered the war in Iraq »
