Joint Custody Blows

July 9th, 2018|

First, the laughter. In 2005, American indie filmmaker Noah Baumbach released his third major film and received his only Oscar nomination to date with The Squid and The Whale (one night only at the Tower – Tuesday, July 17th), a semi-autobiographical remembrance of his teenage perceptions of the divorce of his Brooklyn parents. The title of the film refers to a famous permanent exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History in New [...]

‘UNDER THE TREE’: CASTING A CLOUD OVER COMEDY

June 28th, 2018|

When I introduced Under the Tree at the 2018 Miami Film Festival back in March, I was hesitant to say too much about the film. This is a movie best experienced, not explained. However, there was one small thing I told the audience to keep in the back of their heads: view this film through the lens of a dark comedy.

Is there a more glamorous real-life couple on the world’s cinema screens (and stage) today than Spanish superstars Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem? At this year’s edition of the legendary Cannes Film Festival, the married actors walked up the steps of the historic red carpet where their newest film, Everybody Knows (Todos lo Saben) had the honored distinction of Opening Night Film, and their fairytale-like charisma carried echoes of enchanting on-screen/real-life movie couples … [...]

Miami, You’re so Blessed!

May 3rd, 2018|

You may have heard about the latest epic battle for the future of cinema that erupted last month: Cannes Film Festival vs. Netflix. In one corner…the Festival, passionately defending the originist notion that cinema is at its purest in a theatrical setting.  In the other…Netflix, the world’s newest megastudio, with $8 billion to fund the world’s great filmmakers to make their artistic visions, as long as 99.9% of viewers see those films only at home [...]
