Happy Mother’s Day: The Time of Lola Dueñas

May 9th, 2019|

One of my favorite Spanish actresses is Lola Dueñas. She may not be as famous as Penelope Cruz or Carmen Maura, but for more than 20 years she has been delighting me in both leading and supporting parts that I love to recall. You may remember her from such terrific character turns in Pedro Almodóvar films such as Talk To Her, Volver and Broken Embraces, and for her outstanding lead performances in Yo Tambien! and [...]

Zac Efron stars as Ted Bundy in Miami-set ‘Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile’

April 10th, 2019|

  Zac Efron became an overnight teen sensation after playing heartthrob Troy Bolton in Disney’s High School Musical. Ted Bundy was an infamous serial killer known for having murdered at least 30 women in brutal fashion before he was executed in a Florida prison. That their paths should cross via Efron’s latest film, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, is at once a total surprise and a stroke of utter brilliance. Because while nothing about [...]

Shorts For The Win

April 2nd, 2019|

No wonder, then, that [...]

‘Shoplifters’ is a deeply moving look at the meaning of family

December 9th, 2018|

In Shoplifters, family isn’t something you’re necessarily born with – it’s something you build. Winner of the top prize at the most recent Cannes Film Festival, Shoplifters is a film with a bottomless amount of compassion, one that very well may be one of the most emotional movie-going experiences of the year. In Hirokazu Kore-eda’s latest, we’re introduced to a poverty-stricken Japanese family who barely make ends meet by shoplifting. When Osamu and his son [...]

Making MIAMI Film General – All Over the World!

December 6th, 2018|

The Miami film scene received another tremendous boost this past Monday. As part of a new $37 million investment in the arts, the Knight Foundation dedicated at least $4 million of that toward “making film general in Miami”, to paraphrase the Foundation’s mission to make art general in Miami, a project begun in 2007 that continues to display spectacular results. Included is a five-year renewal of a commitment to sponsor two of Miami Film Festival’s [...]
