Saw this tonight at the SFIFF. It was the centerpiece film. Major crowd-pleaser. Beautifully improvised performances. Look out for this one, it's cleaning up at all the festivals! I really enjoyed it.
New "Justin and the Knights of Valour" picture just released across the net.
Fingers crossed for its 2013 release ...
A touching wonderful film, that has all the strength of a great stage play enhanced by a truly cinematic adaptation. Wonderful performances all around, especially from the children. It just opened here, if it's playing where you are, take the time to see it, and give us your thoughts.
I just had my mind blown at the San Francisco MOMA by an incredibly powerful exhibition ... Here's what they write about her. "In works of classical simplicity and remarkable psychological depth, Dutch artist Rineke Dijkstra presents a contemporary take on the genre of portraiture. Whether adolescents, soldiers, or new mothers, Dijkstra is fascinated by people in states of significant transition. Her sensitive pictures generate a monumental sense of presence, not only in how they record the details of an individual's physical appearance, but also in how they illuminate subtly shifting inner states. The scale and ambition of Dijkstra's photographs connects them to a Dutch tradition of portraiture stretching back to Rembrandt and Frans Hals. Bringing together 70 large-scale color photographs and five video installations, this is the artist's first major retrospective in the United States." Go here to find out more.

My friends May Charters and Mark Hug have finally had their wonderful micro film, "Lovers In A Dangerous Time" picked up for small theatrical release in Toronto. If it's not playing near you, you can see it here on Netflix ...
It's a true gem. Made over a couple of years ago it stands testament to the phrase, "never give up."
