Korean film fest boasts five historical blockbusters

There will be no romcoms at the 2018 Korean Film Festival, which for now shelved the meet-cutes of oppas and eonnis despite the genre's mass appeal. But don't despair, Hallyu fans. The K-cinema showcase more than makes up for the lack of romance with five blockbusters that have instead embraced the Korean peninsula's past. This festival lineup---thematically dubbed "Time Travel"---tells us just how much our East Asian neighbor is willing to push the boundaries of filmmaking for the sake of history, heritage, and offering perspectives about how the past can shape the present. "The five featured films depict critical, decisive moments in Korean history," declared Lee Jin Cheol...Keep on reading: Korean film fest boasts five historical blockbusters.....»»

Travolta family’s mob film to finally hit the screen

A long-awaited biopic of the notorious New York mafia boss John Gotti starring John Travolta is slated to premiere at Cannes, the film festival said Tuesday. The movie --- which is being shown at a "private presentation" on May 15 --- traces the epic rise and fall of the Gambino crime clan, one of America's most powerful mafia gangs in the 1980s. The film is very much a family affair, featuring Travolta's wife Kelly Preston as Gotti's wife Victoria, and his daughter Ella Bleu as Gotti's daughter Angel Gotti. "We're hoping to use Cannes as our launching pad," the film's marketing and distribution chief Dennis Rice told the Hollywood Reporter. The project first to...Keep on reading: Travolta family’s mob film to finally hit the screen.....»»

Alfred Vargas to star in a film about desaparecidos

These days, the actor who shares the most personal stuff about himself is the one who gets the most followers," said Alfred Vargas, noting that a lot has changed since he took a break from show biz in 2009 to pursue a career in politics. "The industry is very different in the sense that it has now become very personal as a result of social media," he observed. "I noticed that people like it if you share stuff to them that makes you appear more human and less unreachable. It's so unlike in our time when our managers forbade us to be seen in public." Alfred is currently working on an advocacy film that he said he "fell in love with because it's so well-written." "Kaputol" is b...Keep on reading: Alfred Vargas to star in a film about desaparecidos.....»»

Second chances

THE Hollywood film genre of the too-soon departed and basically decent soul, on a temporary reprieve to take care of unfinished business back on earth is a favorite since many of us pass on with an uncertain peace. Closely allied to this, is the deux ex mundi (not machina) variant where God or guardian angels (even Santa Claus) take on ordinary human form and mingle with mere mortals for the express purpose of helping out a deserving but clueless individual with a celestial fix that guarantees a miraculously happy ending......»»

Art imitates life in ‘Alpha, The Right to Kill’

  Who stands to win in the country's brutal war against drugs?   Brillante Ma Mendoza's art-imitates-life drama "Alpha, The Right to Kill" doesn't dillydally with the answer, but you'll have to watch the Cannes-winning Filipino auteur's gritty, blood-drenched scorcher to get it "straight from the cinematic horse's mouth."   The 94-minute production, which was feted with the Special Jury Prize at the 66th edition of the A-list San Sebastin film fest last weekend (see related story on Page D2), doesn't break new ground as it examines the Philippine government's polarizing methodology in crime-busting, by way of Mendoza's celebrated cinema vrit storytelling...Keep on reading: Art imitates life in ‘Alpha, The Right to Kill’.....»»
