  • Rome Film Review: 'Gods Behaving Badly'

    The Greek gods always behaved badly, but in producer Marc Turtletaub's remarkably feeble helming debut, they're merely insipid, despite a heaven-sent cast grossly squandered on the kind of bland comedy reminiscent of 1970s TV series like "Love, American...
  • Rebel to expose 'gorgeous' Baroque music at Cal Tech

    Rebel to expose 'gorgeous' Baroque music at Cal Tech
    The world of Baroque chamber music usually isn't the place to look for rebellious ways to present and interpret that style of musical expression. After all, it's a genre of the 17th and 18th centuries, and one might think that the last word has been heard...
  • Review: 'The Great Beauty' intoxicates with masterful Toni Servillo

     Review: 'The Great Beauty' intoxicates with masterful Toni Servillo
    As its name promises, "The Great Beauty" is drop-dead gorgeous, a film that is luxuriously, seductively, stunningly cinematic. But more than intoxicating imagery is on director Paolo Sorrentino's mind, a lot more. One of Italy's most impressive...
  • Rome Film Review: 'The Mole Song: Undercover Agent Reiji'

    Cult helmer Takashi Miike is like a little boy with a short attention span who's got lots of toys to play with: Sticking to just one would be boring, right? For those who agree -- and there are plenty -- Miike's second pic of 2013, "The Mole Song:...
  • Rome Film Review: 'Acrid'

    Novice helmer-scripter Kiarash Asadizadeh employs a "La Ronde"-like structure in "Acrid," an uneven tale of infidelity and disastrous relationships designed to reveal the broken bonds of contempo family life in Iran. Focusing on four main couplings,...
  • India's Film Bazaar Attracts Growing Crowd

    GOA, India -- International executives and festival programmers this week flock to Goa, India for the Film Bazaar (Nov. 20-24) project market which kicks off today in the former Portuguese colony. Backed by the National Film Development Corporation...
  • Rome Film Review: 'Another Me'

    A high schooler in Wales is pursued by the spirit of her dead identical twin in Isabel Coixet's ludicrous bid for the teen-girl crowd, "Another Me." Stunningly unsuccessful on all levels, this gothic dud wants to play on the real and metaphoric...
  • Rome Film Review: 'Tir'

    A "tir" is a tractor trailer, and Alberto Fasulo's "Tir" is a docu-style drama about an ex-teacher-turned-trucker who misses home but is reluctant to give up his now-higher salary. Docu helmer Fasulo, in his first fiction pic, captures the tedium of...
  • Film Review: 'Quod erat demonstrandum'

    Not only the physical elements of mid-1980s Romania are captured in "Quod erat demonstrandum," but also the intangible atmosphere of cautionary hope, fear, and betrayal that permeated that society. Andrei Gruzsniczki's sophomore feature, handsomely shot...
  • Lionsgate's Michael Burns: 'Catching Fire' Director Francis Lawrence 'Hit It Out of the Park'

    On Nov. 18, the Nokia in downtown Los Angeles hosted the sixth premiere in eight days for Lionsgate's "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire." After all that travel director Francis Lawrence allowed that he was a bit jet lagged -- and energized at the same...
  • Rome Film Review: 'Seventh Code'

    "Seventh Code" is a minor entry in Kiyoshi Kurosawa's corpus, a quirky one-hour caper designed to showcase singer-actress Atsuko Maeda as a seemingly nutty young woman smitten by a shady guy in Vladivostok. Given the pic's slight attributes, it's all...
  • 'The Great Beauty' follows a misanthrope in modern Rome

    'The Great Beauty' follows a misanthrope in modern Rome
    Opening on package-tour views of classical Italian architecture set against lilting choral music, "The Great Beauty" abruptly cuts to a screaming Roman disco party swarming with distorted glamour. The disorienting bacchanal is the 65th birthday party...
