While the weaving of the past, present, & future was effective, #IslandSoldier lost me in the mundane unfolding of events that spoke more about the available footage, than about a creative vision that @nathanfitch aimed to display. Full review available now. #atlantafilmfestival #Micronesia #documentary #Gortnacul_at_the_Festivals
Have you caught #manhuntUnabomber yet? With over almost 90 percent accuracy this details the 16 bombings of #tedkaczynski starting in 1978. He went to #Harvard when he was 16 and is a mathematical prodigy who’s currently serving 10 life sentences without the possibility of parole. #mustwatch
Two features tomorrow at the @atlantafilmfestival, but tonight, one of my favorite director’s early films: IL DIVO. Writer-director Paolo Sorrentino received the Cannes Jury Prize for this biopic about the fabled Italian politician Giulio Andreotti (Toni Servillo).
CHALLENGE: ‪Director Milos #Forman died Friday at age 86. As one of the leading lights of the #Czech New Wave in the 1960s, he joined a #generation of #young #filmmakers that built a creative #bulwark against #communist #oppression. He was one of the very few directors whose film (One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest) won all five of the major #Oscars in one year (Film, Director, Acting, Writing). The @nytimes has an article suggesting what and where to watch 9 of his great films titled “9 Great Milos Forman Movies to Stream.” We invite you to the month of May’s #FormanChallenge, where we watch all nine films and rank them while reading his memoir: #Turnaround. Send us your list and we’ll post it online. #Movie #film #challenge #streamNOW #milosforman #watching #watchingmovies #Netflix #Amazon #Itunes #Hulu #Vudu #Fandango #filmwave #newwave
