Tribeca Film Festival: Johanna Hamilton Talks Political Thriller/Heist "1971"

  Nineteen-seventy-one was the year the American press lost its virginity. That June, Daniel Ellsberg leaked the Pentagon Papers. But a lesser-known WikiLeaks antecedent took place three months prior, as captured in Johanna Hamilton's riveting documentary 1971. On the evening of March 8, eight anti-war protesters broke into an FBI office in Media, Pennsylvania, and made off with every document they could lay their hands on. The heist went down on the evening of the sensational Muham...

Tarzan, Review

Tarzan This 2013 production by German director Reinhard Klooss is a franchise authorised by the estate of the original author, Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875-1950), but rather different from any of the story-lines written by him. Tarzan of the Apes appeared in the October 1912 issue of All-Story magazine. Burroughs received $700 for the tale. The first Tarzan movie appeared in 1918, with Elmo Lincoln in the title role. (Imagine, it will be a hundred years old in 2017)! Eventually Burroughs penned...

Revolver Rani, Review

Revolver Rani One can be pardoned for linking two films with the same name and imagining for a while that the latter might be a remake, especially if both are titled Revolver Rani, even if the new one is released 43 years after the original. Both are bound to have a female in the title role and both would obviously show her blazing away to glory. The earlier film was released in 1971, director K.V.S. Kutumba Rao, B & W and had Vijayalalitha as the Rani. It was dubbed in Hindi from a Telu...

More than 30 years ago, a teenager named Jadav "Molai" Payeng began burying seeds along a barren sandbar near his birthplace in northern...

The Manor (2013). A Review

Canadian director Shawney Cohen's film The Manor (2013) screened at the 16th Thessaloniki Documentary Film Festival last week. This award winning doc depicts the modern American family at its best, and worst. This is the story of Shawney Cohen's paradoxically functional family in all its dis-function. Shawney is a struggling filmmaker balancing between the world of film and his family run strip club. He is the designated manager of a strip club his father bought thirty years ago when he...

"Finding Vivian Maier": A Detective Movie

With all due respect to Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, the distinction of true detective must go to history sleuth John Maloof, whose documentary Finding Vivian Maier smokes out one of the art world's most intriguing tales. Together with fellow director/producer Charlie Siskel, Maloof set about making sense of the late street photographer's life and work, ultimately launching her name among the pantheon of outsider artists. It's hard to imagine a less likely candidate for...

Review of the film Hola Venky!

Hola Venky! What are a Spanish greeting and an Indian chicken fast-food brand name doing together in a film title? Why was it titled ‘Hola Benky’ earlier? So, what is the film all about? In 2013, could a feature film really have been made on a budget of Rs. 10 lakh (1 million)/$16,000? Who is the writer-director, Sandeep Mohan? Lead actors Roger Narayan and Sonia Balcazar….what is their background? Who are the supporting actors? Is it worth watching? BTW: Where does Ma...
