A Most Wanted Man

A Most Wanted Man

Based on the bestselling novel by John le Carré and directed by Anton Corbijn (The American), this modern-day thriller begins when a mysterious man on the run (Grigoriy Dobrygin) arrives in Hamburg, Germany’s Islamic community desperate for help. Nothing about this young man seems to add up; is he a victim or a thief or, worse still, an extremist intent on destruction? Drawn into this web of intrigue are a banker (Willem Dafoe) and a young lawyer (Rachel McAdams) determined to defend the defenseless. All the while, they are being watched by the brilliant, roguish chief of a covert German spy unit (Philip Seymour Hoffman), who fights to put the pieces together as the clock ticks. In an adrenaline-laced and heart-rending escalation of tension and collision, it’s not long before he becomes everyone’s most wanted man. A cerebral tale of intrigue in the vein of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, A Most Wanted Man is also deeply human, touching themes in love, rivalry and politics we live with every day.

“[A] crackerjack thriller, at once brooding, claustrophobic and unbearably tense.” -Kevin Turan, Los Angeles Times (Full review here)

This film festival unites people in all corners of the globe, from Sydney to Mumbai, from Buenos Aires to Cairo. Venues also include cinemas in 20 cities in the Ukraine, 40 cities in Russia, and 47 states in the USA. In times like these, cross-border events like MANHATTAN SHORT that contribute toward greater tolerance and understanding are needed more than ever.  This program will not be seen in TV, cable or Video on Demand… “it’s about communities bonding together via their local cinema,” according to Manhattan Shorts Founding Director Nicholas Mason.

MANHATTAN SHORT began in 1998, when Mason screened 16 short films onto a screen mounted to the side of a truck on Mulberry Street, Little Italy, in New York City. A year later, the Festival moved uptown to Union Square Park in New York City. In the aftermath of 9/11, MANHATTAN SHORT transformed into a worldwide phenomenon, becoming the only film festival on the planet that unfolds, simultaneously, in more than 250 cinemas on six continents, bringing over 100,000 film-lovers in all corners of the globe together for one week, via the next generation of filmmakers.

The Expedition to the End of the World

Expedition to the End of the World

Click to enlarge

A real adventure film – for the 21st century. On a three-mast schooner packed with artists, scientists and ambitions worthy of Noah or Columbus, we set off for the end of the world: the rapidly melting massifs of North-East Greenland. An epic journey where the brave sailors on board encounter polar bear nightmares, Stone Age playgrounds and entirely new species. But in their encounter with new, unknown parts of the world, the crew of scientist and artists also confronted the existential questions of life. Curiosity, grand pathos and a liberating dose of humour come together in a superbly orchestrated film where one iconic image after the other seduces us far beyond the historical footnote that is humanity. A film conceived and brought to life on a grand scale – a long forgotten childhood dream lived out by grown artists and scientists.

Directed by  Daniel Dencik, adventure documentary, Denmark, Sweden, and Greenland In English and Danish with subtitles.

Los Angeles Times film critic Robert Abele writes “Composed of breathtaking images and cheeky bits of humor, Dencik’s travelogue reveals a journey with curious traces of the past, eye-popping encounters with a wild present and — in discovering an oil company’s ship in the group’s midst — a weighted reminder of our future as stewards of the Earth.”

Frank

Acclaimed Irish director Lenny Abrahamson creates a wildly quirky comedy about a naïve young wannabe musician, Jon (Domhnall Gleeson, About Time), who finds himself out of his depth when he joins an avant-garde rock band led by the mysterious Frank (Michael Fassbender, conquering the ultimate acting challenge), an unstable but charismatic musical savant who wears a large, round fake head with crudely painted-on features all the time—like Daniel Johnston hidden behind a cartoon smile. Frank’s closest musical collaborator is the forbidding Clara (Maggie Gyllenhaal, Donnie Darko); part caretaker, part jailer, Clara is the antithesis of all things mainstream. For Jon, this is the break he’s been waiting for, his chance to climb through the looking glass and into the world of artistic collaboration, real music-making, and rock ‘n’ roll adventure that he’s always dreamed of. But does he have the talent to make it? Written by Jon Ronson (The Men Who Stare at Goats) and Peter Straughan (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), based on the memoir by Ronson.

“This terrific and sublime experience, and strikingly original film, is mandatory watching for the adventurous viewer.” -Rodrigo Perez, The Playlist (Read the review here)

92% Fresh! Funny, clever, and endearingly unusual, Frank transcends its quirky trappings with a heartfelt — and surprisingly thought-provoking — story.” -RottenTomatoes.com

Blazing Saddles 40th Anniversary

Blazing Saddles

Click to enlarge

Mel Brooks’ lunatic spoof of movie westerns has it all: the now legendary campfire and beans sequence, Cleavon Little as a black sheriff, Gene Wilder as the world’s wimpiest gunslinger, and outrageous assaults on good taste from Harvey Korman, Slim Pickens, Dom DeLuise and Academy Award nominee Madeline Kahn.

Daring, provocative, and laugh-out-loud funny, Blazing Saddles is a gleefully vulgar spoof of Westerns that marks a high point in Mel Brooks’ storied career.
