'The Phantasmagoria of Defeat' (2013) @ 16th TDF.

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...

Bertrand Tavernier Gets in the Loop with "The French Minister"

France's ruling elite has staged its share of psychodrama, but leave it to Bertrand Tavernier‘s new film The French Minister to replay it as farce. Adapted from the bestselling graphic novel Quai D’Orsay – Chroniques Diplomatiques, the film peeps behind the chaotic scenes at the Foreign Affairs Ministry and finds much to burlesque. For starters, there's Foreign Affairs Minister Alexandre Taillard de Worms, an eccentric blue blood who's the very beacon of French E...

Tour "The Grand Budapest Hotel" with Production Designer Adam Stockhausen

With each new Wes Anderson film, audiences get not only a highly stylized world, but also a chance to wonder how he concocted it. Now The Grand Budapest Hotel, which is playing in New York and Los Angeles, is the object of such head cocking. Set in Eastern Europe from the pre-war years through the Communist 60s, the film traces the decline of a legendary spa hotel. Of its fragrant and fastidious concierge Gustave (Ralph Fiennes), the narrator says, "His world had vanished long befor...

"By Summer's End": A Conversation with Director Noa Aharoni

The Israeli family drama By Summer's End is bathed in warm sun tones of yesteryear. Yet for all its nostalgia, the film was conceived as an unsentimental critique of the past. Writer/ director Noa Aharoni calls out the country's male-centric traditions and laments the sins of the fathers visited upon the children. Set on a rural moshava in 1978, the film opens as a young mother, Michal (Michal Varshai), struggles to handle her willful daughter, seven-year-old Maya (Bar Minali). Ma...

Somewhere in Oaxaca, southern Mexico: 16 years old Mateo lives here in a rural community, where the traditional Zapotec culture is still alive.

Review of the film, Rock Paper Dice Enter

user
Working her way up from the sound and editing departments in several outings over 12 years, Indo-Canadian director Shreela Chakrabartty debuts with Rock Paper Dice Enter. It is written by another Indo-Canadian, Kash Gauni, who has jointly produced the film with Shreela. There’s one more Indian connection, a character played by Ojas Joshi, but that is where the Indianness ends. Canadian in feel, inspired by Hollywood in treatment, and international in the issues it addresses, the film has ...
