The Hundred-Foot Journey

The Hundred-Foot Journey

Click to enlarge

Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal) is a culinary ingénue with the gastronomic equivalent of perfect pitch. Displaced from their native India, the Kadam family, led by Papa (Om Puri), settles in a picturesque village in the south of France to open an Indian restaurant, the Maison Mumbai. That is, until the chilly chef proprietress of Le Saule Pleureur, a Michelin-starred, classical French restaurant run by Madame Mallory (Helen Mirren), gets wind of it. Her icy protests against the new Indian restaurant a hundred feet from her own escalate to all-out war between the two establishments—until Hassan’s passion for French haute cuisine and for Mme. Mallory’s enchanting sous chef Marguerite (Charlotte Le Bon), combine with his mysteriously delicious talent to weave magic between their two cultures. A stimulating story of triumph over exile and blossoming with passion and heart,The Hundred-Foot Journey is a portrayal of two worlds colliding and one boy’s drive to find the comfort of home, in every pot, wherever he may be. Directed by Lasse Hallström (Chocolat, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen).

“Is “feel-good” a bad word? Critics often think so. But when a movie explores real emotions en route to its gladdening end, when it takes time to touch on serious issues along the way, it earns the right to make us feel good.” -Lawrence Toppman, Charlotte Observer (read the review here)

A public debate on Alaska Ballot Measure 2

Debate Ballot Measure 2

Sponsored by The UAA Seawolf Debate Program The Alaska Dispatch News

What:  A nation-wide reconsideration of America’s drug policy is underway; November’s Ballot Measure 2 puts that consideration before Alaskans.  Should we continue to treat marijuana as a criminal problem or do other models offer appealing alternatives?  Colorado and Washington were the first states to legalize the recreational production, sale and use of marijuana, but long before they did so Alaska wrestled with the question of how to balance the potentially negative effects of a popular intoxicant with the personal liberties so important to what it means to be an Alaskan.  Join us for a public debate that will attempt to shed some light on this complex controversy.

The Motion: “Alaskans should vote to legalize the production, sale and use of marijuana.”

The Pro Side: Taylor Bickford and Bruce Schulte

The Con Side: Deborah Williams and Kristina Woolston

The Zero Theorem

Zero Theorem

Click to enlarge

The latest provocation from the twisted mind of Terry Gilliam (Brazil), The Zero Theorem is a seriously surreal, madcap science fiction epic starring two- time Academy Award-winner Christoph Waltz as Qohen Leth, an eccentric and reclusive computer genius plagued with existential angst.

Living in isolation in a burnt-out church, Qohen is obsessively working on a mysterious project personally delegated to him by Management (Matt Damon) aimed at discovering the meaning of life – or the complete lack of one – once and for all. Increasingly disturbed by unwanted visits from people he doesn’t fully trust, including flirtatious Bainsley (Mélanie Thierry), Management’s wunderkind son Bob (Lucas Hedges), his unpredictable colleague Job (David Thewlis), and would-be digital therapist Dr. Shrink-Rom (Tilda Swinton), it’s only when he experiences the power of love and desire that he’s able to understand his own reason for being.

Directed by Terry Gilliam, 2013, USA/Romania/UK/France, in English.

Pump!

Pump

Pump is an inspiring, eye-opening documentary that tells the story of America’s addiction to oil, from its corporate conspiracy beginnings to its current monopoly today, and explains clearly and simply how we can end it – and finally win choice at the pump. Today oil is our only option of transportation fuel at the pump. Our exclusive use of it has drained our wallets, increased air pollution and sent our sons and daughters to war in faraway lands. Pump shows us how through the use of a variety of replacement fuels, we will be able to fill up our cars – cheaper, cleaner and American made – and in the process, create more jobs for a stronger, healthier economy. The film features notable experts such as John Hofmeister, former President of Shell Oil US; Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Motors; Peter Goldmark, former president of the Rockefeller Foundation; ‘Lula’ Da Silva, former President of Brasil and other noteworthy figures who share their passionate views and knowledge. Right now we have the ability to change our country’s future, but we never knew it. Aren’t we tired of being taken for a ride? Pump is the movie that could change that.

“Documentary exploring the origins of and problems with the fact that almost all cars run on gasoline, when other options including electricity, ethanol and methanol make more sense.”-Marc Mohan, The Oregonian (Full review here)

Calvary

Calvary

“I’m going to kill you, Father.” In Calvary, an inventive mystery-drama with a pitch-black comic heart, Father James (Brendan Gleeson, In Bruges) is a good priest who is threatened in the confessional by a mysterious member of his parish. Although he continues to comfort his own fragile daughter Fiona (Kelly Reilly) and reach out to help members of his church with their various scurrilous moral—and often comic—problems, he feels sinister and troubling forces closing in, and begins to wonder if he will have the courage to face his own personal Calvary. Also starring Chris O’Dowd. From John Michael McDonagh, the acclaimed writer and director of The Guard.

FOUR STARS! Calvary is also just jaw-droppingly beautiful. McDonagh and cinematographer Larry Smith capture the four-seasons-in-one-day miracle that is Ireland, with its jagged stonescapes, roiling surf, fairie towns, and bracing skies.” -Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer (Full review here)

Powderwhore presents “Something Else”

Something Else

Click to enlarge

For our tenth film we wanted to do something special. So all we did was capture our deepest powder ever, expeditions to the most remote mountain ranges, and the steepest spines on the planet. Combined with the most interesting characters on snow, and our usual low brow humor, and we have a ski movie worthy of our ten years filming the backcountry experience.

Part ski porn, part documentary, this is a full on propaganda piece promoting the joys and wonder of exploring winter on skis and split-board. It’s our business and pleasure to break trail with those who are willing to put in the time, education and respect the mountains deserve and record it for posterity.

This year we headed out looking for Some Thing Else, and we found it.

-A last minute dream trip to Hokkaido, Japan with Eric Balken, Will Cardamone, Megan Michelson and Dan Abrams

-A yurt stay in The Beartooth Mountains of Montana with Carston Oliver, Eric Balken, Ben Nobel and Alyssa Larson

-Steep spine clinic with Neil Provo in the Tordrillo Mountains of Alaska
