Profession: Documentarist

Seven female documentarians from Iran review their personal stories and the obstacles they had to go through in order to devote themselves to a profession that, after the Islamic Revolution of 1979, has gained epic proportions. The intimate, confessional shorts in Profession: Documentarist (a title that references Antonioni’s Professione: Rep...

Queen and Country

In the must-see Hope and Glory, John Boorman used Bill Rohan’s character as an alter ego in order to tell of his own experiences during World War II, or how it is to grow up with a terrible backdrop. Queen and Country resume the life of a Bill with his feet firmly on the ground, ten years later, when he’s forced to serve in the military...

Re:Awakenings

In 1969, Oliver Sacks, a neurologist in his thirties, found himself in a hospital from the Bronx with a group of patients who had been in a catatonic state for decades. He identified them as survivors of a devastating encephalitis epidemic that happened four decades ago, and tested some new medicine with them, which provided extraordinary results:...

Reflejo Narcisa

With the beautiful colors of a few days in autumn, this film joins Narcisa Hirsch, fundamental guiding light for Argentine experimental film, in her activities and meditations, without clearly determining where ones end and others begin. By revisiting photos and letters from the filmmaker’s mother’s youth, the film presents a tale of Do...

Revivre

One of the (many) problems filmmakers must face when they reach old age is being canonized. Rapidly, regardless of the merits of their work, they tend to become untouchable, and are surrounded by an entourage willing to celebrate their careers (as mediocre as they may have been) leaving aside any kind of analysis of criticism. That is not the case...

Rocky IV, le coup de poing americain

Right in the mid-eighties, in 1985, Sylvester Stallone wrote, directed and starred in the fourth installment of Rocky. The most bombastic of the franchise, the one that was considered a pinnacle of Reaganist cinema. Of course, those of us who were twelve when it came out found out about those details later. We also found out later that many critics...

Sauerbruch Hutton Architects

Architects at work: a priori nothing lends itself better to cinema, nothing is more graphic than shots that alternate between the drawing and the built structure, between the two-dimensional plan and the three-dimensional result. Yet this film, with its corporate-sounding title, shot over three months in a large Berlin-based firm, abandons this cla...

Behind the beautiful (and sometimes even smart) exaggeration of the pin-up girl who wins a geek’s heart (whether it’s the pop pedigree version, Ramona Flowers, or the killer sitcom beauty, Penny… Penny… Penny…), 2014 exposed the filthy side of that fantasy: they became public and controversial cases of sexism, and e...
