Tribeca: “Mansome” – What makes a man a man?

Keine Kommentare | Beitrag vom 23.04.2012

As I enter the barbershop on 23rd Street, across the street from the Chelsea Clearview Cinema, I am beginning to feel some doubt: Should I get my no frills haircut here as usual, even though the barbers don’t cut the hair the way I’d prefer it? Should I find a possible more expensive hair salon? [...]

Ask nine experts and get ten answers. Ask a dozen filmmakers on the future of movies – and get even more opinions. If you intend to watch “Side By Side” to get an answer a better idea of what maybe ahead for filmmakers, you might leave the movie theater disappointed. But if you watch “Side [...]

Keine Kommentare | Beitrag vom 19.04.2012

Brazil might be the country with the most undiscovered tribes in the world – considering it’s vast hinterland, it’s not a surprise when a new discovery makes the news. Back in the Forties this was normal: Some Indian tribes in Brazil already worked for the white people, others still haven’t seen a single white person. [...]

Keine Kommentare | Beitrag vom 29.04.2011

The marriage of Genesis P. Orridge and Lady Jaye might be one of the strangest in rock history. After their wedding the couple tried to become a “pandrogynous” being, two persons who are so similar to each other they might be one. The romance ended tragic – Lady Jaye died a few years ago because [...]

Tribeca: “The Bleeding House” – don’t let strangers in, not even Christians

A family with a dark history, which should rather be left alone, a house far away from the next city, a person whose car broke down on the road and who needs a place to stay – this of course is the perfect setting for some chills and kills. And killings you will see a [...]

Tribeca: “Detachment” – a bleak look on today’s schools in the United States

Keine Kommentare | Beitrag vom 28.04.2011

Is this really the state of the education system in the United States? Children don’t care, parents blame teachers for their own failures, and government officials care more about business than helping children, while teachers are burning down. Tony Kaye definitely paints a bleak picture of schools in his movie “Detachment” which premiered at the [...]

Tribeca: “Beyond the Black Rainbow” is the most stunning movie at the festival (or the most boring)

Keine Kommentare | Beitrag vom 27.04.2011

Yes, I will try to explain what “Beyond The Black Rainbow” is about later in this review. But no – you definitely shouldn’t read that paragraph in case you are still planning on seeing Panos Cosmatos’ fascinating debut feature which has its international premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Tribeca: “Rabies / Kalevet” – these woods bring out the worst in you!

Keine Kommentare | Beitrag vom 27.04.2011

Something is wrong with these woods – something brings the worst out of people in here. We just don’t know what it is. And maybe even the two directors of “Kalevet” (rabies), Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado, which is shown at the Tribeca Film Festival don’t have a clue about “it”. But it sure hurts! [...]

Tribeca: Ozzy Osbourne, the rock star. And the family man? Not so much

Keine Kommentare | Beitrag vom 26.04.2011

Considering the Ozzy Osbourne overkill in the media within the last decade, it would be no surprise if you give “God Bless Ozzy Osbourne” a pass. Especially if you know that Jack Osbourne, Ozzy’s son, is the producer of this documentary which premiered on Sunday at the Tribeca Film Festival. What shall we expect? Another [...]

Tribeca: “Klitschko” von Sebastian Dehnhardt ist kein K.O.-Sieg

Keine Kommentare | Beitrag vom 25.04.2011

Die Klitschko-Brüder sind mit Sicherheit nicht die größten Boxer aller Zeiten – sie gehören aber zu den (körperlich) größten und dominieren auch deswegen die Schwergewichtsszene seit einigen Jahren. Vitali und Wladimir Klitschko sind dabei ein Phänomen: zwei Ukrainer, die in Deutschland so beliebt sind wie keine anderen Boxer. Die Dokumentation “Klitschko” von Sebastian Dehnhardt über [...]
