"Tales of Manhattan" Directed by Julien Duvivier, Starring Charles Boyer, Rita Hayworth, Henry Fonda, Charles Laughton, Ginger Rogers, Edward G. Robinson, and Paul Robeson. There are Films where people sometimes mention the ensemble or talk about how Great of a cast was from the movie. But with "Tales of Manhattan", I mean talk about ensemble. Just a few of the names mentioned are part of some of the Greatest and well known movies of all time. This Film is about a Black tail coat that goes from owner to owner and through that we have these different stories depicted. Where one situation is a love triangle between Charles Boyer, Rita Hayworth, and Thomas Mitchell, another scenario is Cesar Romero who is well known for playing the Joker in the Adam West Batman tv show, was cheating on his wife in the movie who is played by Ginger Rogers who eventually finds out and soon becomes charmed by Romero's friend in the Film played by Henry Fonda. Another scenario which might be my personal favorite of the tales, shows an aspiring composer played by Charles Laughton who manages to impress a composer he looks up too and gets a chance to conduct at Carnegie Hall. His wife at the last minute coincidentally gets her hands on the Tail coat for her husband but the big night for the composer doesn't go how you would expect it and the performances and sequence was simply heart warming. Other tales include a homeless man played by Edward G. Robinson who is another big and well known star. And a couple who somehow manage to miraculously have the Tail coat literally land in their laps or at least in their possession filled with money. And soon the money is used to help their little town. This Film is really a Gem and it's all around a solid story or stories or in this case tales. Not to mention the cast who each play their role spectacularly makes this Film a must see. I highly recommend it if you have a chance to watch it. I hope you enjoy the review and more importantly I hope you
Sorry to bother you is a #2018 is a Sci-Fi/Comedy/Fantasy movie. This movie takes place In an alternate version of Oakland, where Cassius Green is desperate for a job when he finally gets one one as telemarketer. While on the job he discovers the magical key to professional success, throwing him into a very strange universe controlled by greed. I went into this movie not really knowing what to expect, and its safe to say it was a lot more strange than thought it would be. This movie really pushes the Sci-Fi/Fantasy side of its story. So lets jump into the writing, i will give Boots Riley credit for making a really fresh and original feeling story. I will also give him credit for using his out if the box story to shed light on Capitalism, Class, Political issues and Racism. The problem is that this story gets overly fantastical, and it really banks on the comedy and strangeness to the point where it really undercuts the main message hes trying to get across. Some of the story elements are honestly laughable, and not it a good way. We get a mostly quality film for about an hour and 30 minutes, then in the final 20 minutes or so this movie just goes on a downward spiral into obscurity. The Dialogue here is pretty strong and some of the jokes do work really well. The directing is good with its visual story telling and the pacing is well done, but the tone gets jumbled from juggling so many genres at once. I know some people will be mad at me for this but the acting in this is just ok. Lakeith Stanfield was really good, i didnt expect it at all. I also thought Steve Yeun, Armie Hammer and Danny Glover were all good. Now ive always been on the borderline with Tessa Thompson, she was good here and had some nice chemistry with Stanfield, but her performance was much more over the top than anyone else, and it felt out of place at times. The rest the cast has Jermaine Fowler, Omari Hardwick, Terry Crews, David Cross, Patton Oswalt, Lily James, Forest Whitaker, Rosario
Everyone remembers Ryan Gosling’s Oscar nominated performance in @LaLaLand, but he was first nominated a decade earlier for his superb work in “Half Nelson.” Happy Birthday to #ryangosling, who just might receive a third nomination this year for @FirstManMovie.
Zinebi. Opening. Day 1. This year Zinebi International Festival of Documentary and Short Film celebrates its 60th anniversary. Imagine, 60 years ago in the middle of cultural enclosure of Spain, a festival emerges in Bilbao that functions like the city's window to the outside world. This was when the Copa del Rey was called the Copa del Generalísimo, and this name explains the entire state of affairs in the country at that time. This was also the past and long gone era when the audience was entirely male. And local Basque productions were rare. Today the festival reflects the changes that can be guiding in contemporary societies, such as this edition's entire female jury. And looking at the program, the official selection is impressive with diverse contemporary international cinematic works from all over the world, among which my attention is drawn to Iranian Women cinema and the works from the countries with less known cinematic culture such as Khrustal (Crystal Swan) by Darya Zhuk from Belarus. Let the celebration begin! #zinebi2018#filmfestival#exploration#audience#zinebi#art#cinema#films#festival#film#language#story#artistic#textures get #inspired by #ideas and the #design#theatre#arte#people#lights#cinematic#photography#urban#lifestyles#cine#writing#women#cinephiles#celebration
