THE COVE - NY Times Critics’ Pick

The Cove Critics’ Pic NY Times

As reviewed in the New York Times, THE COVE (currently playing at the Angelika New York) “…is a Trojan horse: an exceptionally well-made documentary that unfolds like a spy thriller, complete with bugged hotel rooms, clandestine derring-do and mysterious men in gray flannel suits.”

Following director Louie Psihoyos (whose photos have appeared in many issues of National Geographic) and his team into dangerous waters, THE COVE sets out to uncover the shocking mysteries of a hidden dolphin cove in Japan.

A WOMAN IN BERLIN

A WOMAN IN BERLIN PRESS NINA HOSS


A WOMAN IN BERLIN, now playing at the Angelika in New York and set for October 2nd in Dallas, Plano and Houston, was recently featured on NPR as “…bringing new attention to an issue long considered a taboo in German society…” . A New York Times Critics’ Pick, A WOMAN IN BERLIN stars Award Winner Nina Hoss (YELLA) in this account of life in 1945 during the Red Army invasion of Berlin, based on the formerly anonymous writings of journalist and photographer Marta Hillers.

As detailed in NPR’s piece, the film, in conjunction with a university study on German rape victims, gives a long belated voice to the 2 million women who’ve held their silence for over 50 years. A timely examination of sexual violence and war, A WOMAN IN BERLIN is a “…sprawling, difficult, powerful film” (New York Times).

Angelika x3: “Slumdog” causes a stir - opens tomorrow

ad-age-slumdog1.jpg

It’s no surprise that Fox Searchlight’s SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE (opening soon at 3 Angelika locations), winner of the People’s Choice Award at the Toronto International Film Festival this year, is gaining incredible recognition and attention from the press. In fact it is what Time calls “A Buoyant hymn to life…”. Even more passionately, Rolling Stone’s Peter Travers says it is “One of the year’s best films. What I feel for this movie isn’t just admiration; it’s mad love.”SLUMDOG is also getting coverage in unexpected places.

According to a recent AdAge article, some companies have requested that their products (with no “product placement” deals involved) simply be excluded or disguised in the film. Director Danny Boyle went to such great lengths to authentically show the gritty slums of Mumbai that certain brands, like Coke and Mercedes, wanted out. According to an 11/08 article in Variety, the film gained an R rating for “overall intensity”, but many intense films proudly feature and profit from products in their story line.

How can SLUMDOG, which inspires “mad love” in reviewers and film festival goers, inspire mad fear in advertisers? Find out, starting tomorrow:

Juno - A blogger’s delight.

juno.jpg

JUNO, penned by famous blogger, author and now screenwriter Diablo Cody, was a hit at this year’s Toronto Film Festival - and it may very well be a result of her long-honed internet savvy. The film’s exceptionally clever script emphasizes all of the aspects of Cody’s writing that made her so popular with a hyper-critical and judiciously judgmental internet audience. In turn, JUNO has been met with unprecendented zeal from web-enthusiasts and indie-film lovers alike, and as pointed out in this article from HollywoodChicago.com, may be the first movie that caters directly to a blogger’s apetite.

Juno opens Chirstmas Day @ the Angelika Houston and the Angelika Plano.
