Taking Woodstock

August 28th, 2009

Taking Woodstock is based on the book by Elliot Tiber which claims that the iconic music and arts festival in upstate New York in August of 1969 almost didn’t take place for lack of a one dollar permit. As per the book Tiber calls himself Elliot Teichberg (Demetri Martin) an ambitious but quite young town councillor in Bethel New York who already had the required permission slip and invited p ...

Lorna's Silence

August 28th, 2009

Lorna's Silence is a dreary story of intrigue from Belgium. Lorna (Arta Dobroshi) works at a laundry but her home life is not nearly so mundane. For starters she has an associate named Fabio (Fabrizio Rongione) who acts like a pimp and whose vocation as a taxi driver is clearly a front. She dreams of opening a café with her boyfriend Sokol(Alban Ukaj) who is sweet enough when he’s not talking ...

Paper Heart

August 28th, 2009

Paper Heart features barely known stand up artist Charlyne Yi as someone denying the existence of romantic love yet trying to get some understanding of what it is. To do this she and her producer Nicholas Jasenovec pack a film crew across the USA in the dead of winter doing interviews about different perspectives on love. This “documentary” supposedly takes on a life of its own when Judd Apit ...

306 1399 BARCLAY Street, Vancouver West, British Columbia

August 26th, 2009

I just finished uploading this Condo for sale, 306 1399 BARCLAY Street, Vancouver West, British Columbia

Inglourious Basterds

August 23rd, 2009

Inglourious Basterds has Quentin Tarantino getting back to his glory days as a Hollywood wunderkind. Here he takes us to 1944 and occupied France where there are two stories on a collision course. One has Mélanie Laurent (ingénue Shosanna Dreyfus) a Jewish woman who after narrowly escaping extermination inherits a Parisian cinema where the opportunity to strike a crushing blow to the Third Re ...

In the Loop

August 23rd, 2009

In the Loop is an offshoot of the British TV series The Thick of It, but it stands alone as a wickedly sharp comedy. Also standing alone is Peter Capaldi playing Malcolm Tucker, almost the only character from the original 2005 series. He’s a political whip from the British Prime Ministers office with a tongue as acrid and razor sharp as his weasely features. He’s always in a fury but he’s on ...

Shorts

August 23rd, 2009

Shorts is a series of short films that tells the tale of a rainbow coloured rock that grants wishes to residents of Black Falls, a ticky tacky suburb where all of the friends and neighbours  work for Black Inc. which manufactures the Black Box, a utility that can do virtually anything. It’s the brainchild of Mr. Black (James Spader) a tyrannical captain of his underlings. He has two children, ...

District 9

August 16th, 2009

District 9 starts two decades after an alien ship has stalled above one of the world’s largest cities and as one sympathetic talking head scribe points out, it did not happen over some American city - but curiously says it rightfully happened over Johannesburg South Africa. The irony becomes apparent when after 20 years some one million extra terrestrials rescued from the drifting mother ship ...

The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard

August 16th, 2009

The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard is another clear indication that a vacation is long overdue for the loveable but played out Will Farrell. He only has a bit part on screen but as one of this movie’s producers had a big part in subjecting us to this bare minimum comedy. Another misstep is hiring Jeremy Piven as the leading man. His charming delinquent guy works in Entourage and other TV ensembl ...
