TWENTY FEET FROM STARDOM – Review & Preview

In its quintessence, 20 Feet From Stardom being the expose of the glamour world’s deceptions, twists and exploitations, it nevertheless is nothing short of being a joyous depiction—by way of interesting stories, anecdotes, archival footage and live interviews of celebrities and back-up singers—of triumph, of heartache, and of ambition gone awry.

The Heat – Review

When two differently skilled cops – with attitude problems peculiar to each – are forced by circumstances to work together, the outcome expected could be anything but hilarious.

GI Joe: Retaliation – Movie Review

If as a child of four or thereabouts you loved playing with GIJoe toys, emitting crazy sounds of glee while mentally enacting scenes of defeat of Cobra after the yells, the “dishm-dishm”, the “whoom-whoom”, the smash-squash, then this movie is for you. As a kid I did enact such sounds playing with my set of … Continue reading

Movie 43 – Review

As one settles to watch Movie43, one has to pinch oneself to ask: are they watching a real movie or is the apparition of a Hollywood film making on screen debut?

Captain Phillips – Review

A pulsating, nerve shattering biographical action thriller that starts with a proverbial whimper-like-lameness and ends with a resounding bang, ‘Captain Phillips‘ imprints on the viewer’s mind and heart feelings bordering on awe, admiration, and distaste at the harrowing disparity among humans on different planes though habitating the same mother earth.

Cupcakes Review – The 2013 Jewish International Film Festival

A take on love, life, togetherness, Cupcakes is an exhilaration fueled charming romp, that at the same time scans seriously the topic of gay sex, a topic hitherto locked in the closet.

Artist Interview – Robyn Stacey

Photographs have the power to create magic. If the inspiration and concept is right, they can charm us and sometimes take us into a world of illusion. But the real mastery comes when this illusion is rooted within reality; when one is so awed by the state of confusion that this ‘real-yet-illusion’ world that is … Continue reading
