Martin Scorsese was honored Monday night at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. Sir Ben Kingsley was in attendance as well, to award Scorsese with the American Riviera Award. Here are some tidbits from the gentle evening in Santa Barbara paradise, 90 miles outside of Los Angeles.

LOOKING BACK, Cinema's greatest moments... BARAKA (1992)

user
  Twenty years ago a film was released that changed the way people viewed cinema because its filmmakers dared to go where no other film has ever been, and none since... ...BARAKA (1992), directed by cinematographer Ron Fricke and produced by Mark Magidson, does everything against the rules in textbook filmmaking- it uses no stars, no script and no dialogue!!! - yet in so doing, BARAKA made history with its transcendent cinematic language. The point of this film was made loud and c...

Sundance Winners And Losers

user
They call it the Sundance alchemy…..the strange and rather unknowable process by which films with advanced buzz fall flat and titles that come out of nowhere become the next big indie flings. Such was the case at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, where several of the higher profile films did not get the love from audiences, critics or distributors, and where a few unheralded films walked away with the lion’s share of prizes and, most importantly, distribution contacts that will insure th...

Sundance Audience Favorites

  THE SURROGATE (Ben Lewin, USA) Perhaps even more of an indicator of a film’s eventual commercial career is the Audience Awards given at the Sundance Film Festival because they point to an enthusiasm by the public. Distributors who may be wary of taking on certain titles can look to these prize winners for an early indication of how they will be received by audiences. In the U.S. Documentary Competition, the audience favorite announced at Saturday’s closing awa...
