    Oscar® Watch: Even the Rain (From Spain): Revised January 19th: I'm Rooting For This Underdog

    See the trailer here. Today January 19, as the Shortlist for Best Foreign Language Submissions for Nomination is announced, I find myself rooting for Tambien la Lluvia for its brave subject matter and ambitious storytelling. But I must admit that the reason I am not rooting for for Denis Villeneuve’s “Incendies, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s “Biutiful", Susanne Bier’s Golden Globe winner “In a Better World, and Yorgos Lanthimos’s “Dogtooth,” is because I have not seen them! I've heard great things about them though. Nor have I seen Algeria's “Hors la Loi” (“Outside the Law”), Rachid Bouchareb, director; Japan's “Confessions,” Tetsuya Nakas...

    When are Films Political?: Women Without Men

    Women Without Men premiered in Venice in 2009, went on to Toronto and Sundance, was picked up by distributors around the world, including Indiepix for U.S. and still remains one of my all time favorites. It is so unknown here that any chance for a public to see it is special. It is the first film of Shirin Neshat ♀, a well know Iranian visual artist. Co-directed by Neshat's partner Shoja Arari, Women Without Men (2009, 99') is a political thriller and as such the film is highly relevant in our times—particularly in view of the June 2009 elections in Iran, and with the U.S. continually embroiled in neighboring Muslim countries such as Iraq a...
