Director Darren Aronofsky discusses his latest film Black Swan with Film Independent.

user
  For more than 15 years, director Darren Aronofsky mulled over an idea for a film set in the world of ballet.  But it turned out that Aronofsky's Black Swan benefited from the wait. Aronofsky sees the film, which stars Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis, as a companion piece to his award winning 2008 film, The Wrestler.  Both films are set in highly competitive, brutalizing sports and both lead characters find themselves in an uncontrollable path to ...

London Film Festival Points To The Oscars

user
  Inevitably, any major film festival that occurs in the Fall season has a role play in determining eventual Oscar nominees and even winners. It all starts off at the Venice and Toronto film festivals, where Oscar hopefuls get their debuts, and continues into the season, presumably climaxing with nominations that come at the first of the year. With the Academy’s recent expansion of the Best Picture category to include 10 films, it is very likely that several of the films present...

American Indie Auteurs In Poland

And if the size of the audiences at the screenings is any indica...

Tinsel & Tine screening choices for 19th Philadelphia Film Festival (Oct 14-24, 2010)

216 screenings, 11 screens, 6 venues, 10 days!  So many great films to see, so many synopsis to read, not to mention industry panels and parties; this is the great thing about film festivals, the bad part – there’s no way to see and do it all. Here’s my tentative list of films I plan to see during the 19th Philadelphia Film Festival (Oct 14-24).  I also hope to blog quick, on the spot film reviews by attendees after screenings, so look for me during the festival.

Sofia Coppola Wins Her Lion In Venice

user
  Sofia Coppola walked away with the top prize at the Venice Film Festival this past weekend, winning the Golden Lion for her new film SOMEWHERE. The film, which inexplicably did not make the cut at the Toronto or New York film festivals (festival envy?), stars Stephen Dorff and Elle Fanning in a dramatic story of a father who tries to connect with his daughter after years of neglect. The fact that the dad is also a famous actor adds spice to this satire of Hollywood's self-obession and...

The Loss Of Innocence At TIFF

user
  Yesterday was September 11th, and again I find myself in the city of Toronto, as I did in 2001......when the planes crashed, the towers fell, the buildings burned and America lost its innocence. It was a very strange place to be back then, in the midst of covering a film festival, while one's city was in chaos. For those of us from New York, there was a shared concern about the loss of loved ones, the security of our friends and family and the frustrations of not being able to place p...
