KIFF Review: ‘Black Swan’

October 6, 2010
KIFF Review: ‘Black Swan’

Darren Aronofsky has made a career of choosing interesting, non-traditional material and illuminating the unexpected aspects of his subject matter. Case(s) in point: The Wrestler (a down-trodden wrestler), Pi (mathematicians), Requiem For a Dream (middle-aged drug addiction), and now Black Swan (competitive ballet.) His knack for taking something completely mundane and elevating it to something...

SXSW: The Best Narrative Shorts

SXSW:  The Best Narrative Shorts

One of my favorite things about short films is – and this is obvious to the point of being almost silly to mention - they are short.  As a viewer, your commitment is brief and fleeting, so even in the worst case scenario – that being that the film is le suck - at least only a...

Over the course of eight weeks, students in 4th-grade teacher John Hunter’s Charlottesville, Virginia class take on the roles of nation leaders, UN representatives, the World Bank, tribal chieftans who negotiate the trade rights to their...

SXSW Movie Review: Red, White, and Blue

SXSW Movie Review: Red, White, and Blue

Just a quick story about my viewing of this movie before you read the review. The SXSW film festival had a screening room for press members to use this year, so if you missed a film you could “check out” the movie and go into the screening library and view it on a computer....

Her debut film Down to the Bone played at the 2004 Sundance Festival, and earned her a Best Director Prize. At the...

SXSW (Nearly Complete) Review:  Rise, Ride, Roar

Please allow me to preface this breezy, casual, semi-incomplete review of sorts by saying that I missed the last fifteen minutes of this film in order to catch a plane (I am incredibly antsy about catching flights… I blame my dad.)  I was the designated time watcher of the group (not an easy feat...

SXSW Review:  Micmacs/Micmacs à tire-larigot

I can’t remember a time when I have been to see a feature-length film and hadn’t first watched the trailer or – at the very least - read something about it before seeing it.  Like most people,  I generally have some expectations (good, bad and occasionally ugly) of a film when I go to the movies so...

SXSW Review: Cyrus

When Mumblecore Meets Mainstream Cyrus premiered at the 2010 SXSW film festival in Austin, Texas at the Paramount theater.   The premiere was followed by a ribald Q&A session with cast and crew. Mark and Jay Duplass caused a bit of a commotion at Sundance and SXSW in 2005 when their feature film The Puffy...
