  • Have you read our cover story on Tarantino yet?

From Reservoir Dogs to Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood, Quentin Tarantino blazes a trail with his celebration of cinema, his subversion of history, his compulsion for homage and pastiche,  writes Shireen Quadri, founder, The Punch Magazine, in the cover essay.

  • அவள் அப்படித்தான் ..... 1978 ஆம் ஆண்டு  சி.ருத்ரைய்யா இயக்கத்தில் வெளிவந்த திரைப்படமாகும் .... அந்த காலக்கட்டத்தில்  நிச்சயமாக இது போன்ற படத்தை யாரும்  ஏற்றுக்கொள்ள மாட்டார்கள் ... இப்படி ஒரு கதையை எடுத்ததுக்கு இயக்குனரை பாராட்ட வேண்டும் ... இந்த படத்தின் பெண் கதாபாத்திரம் இயக்குனரால் வியக்கத்தக்க வகையில் செதுக்கப்பட்டுல்லது மற்றும் அந்த கதாபாத்திரம் எனக்கு ஆழமான தாக்கத்தை அளிக்கிறது .... ஒளிப்பதிவு மிகவும் வித்தியாசமானது, இந்த  விஷயத்தில் மட்டுமே கவனம் செலுத்தும்படி கேமரா கோணங்கள் இருந்தது .... சிறந்த ஒளிப்பதிவாளர் விருதினையும் நல்லுசாமி மற்றும் ஞானசேகரன் வாங்கினார்கள் .... மேலும் இப்படத்தின் திரைக்கதை  நாடகத்தைப் போலவே தோற்றமளித்தது..... •

Aval Appadithaan ... is a 1978 film directed by C. Rudraiya .... At that time Surely no one would accept this kind of stories.... We must appreciate the Director for his bold attempt .... The female character of this movie is so vulnerable .... Her character gives me a deep impact..... Lighting is very different, focused only on the subject. Camera angles must be a experimental try. Nalusamy and Gnanasekaran also won the Best Cinematographer award for this film.... And the screenplay made the movie looks more similar like drama...... •

  • ⏰ It's our FINAL SEA of Sadness programme this Wednesday! Presenting a series of short films by Indonesian filmmaker Edwin. Just Edwin. 🎬 Wednesday, 28 Aug, 8pm @ Oldham Theatre | Normal Love | Edwin | Buy tickets: https://normallove-sea.peatix.com

Edwin. It is not so strange for an Indonesian to be represented without a family name. But Edwin is a strange filmmaker indeed, and one of Southeast Asia’s most talented, original and, not to mention, daring. Playful in his approach to Indonesian sexual taboos, Edwin has made not just one or two shorts on erotic subjects, but a whole catalogue of them, many of which are included in this programme. “Normal Love”—we title this programme thus with a sense of irony, to say the least. This programme offers a glance into the development of a young filmmaker’s astounding body of work.

  • Recently watched this hilarious martial arts comedy written, directed and starring Hong Kong filmmaker and martial artist Stephen Chow. And that is KUNG FU HUSTLE (2004). Taking place in 1940s Shanghai, the film tells the story of a young rogue named Sing who, along with his sidekick Bone, are eager to join the town's most notorious mob crew, the Axe Gang. Hoping to impress the Gang, Sing and Bone pose as Axe mobsters and begin to harass a poor village unaware that the village consists of legendary martial artist masters.

Now this film is one of the most highly stylized comedies I've ever seen. I'm serious when I say that I haven't laughed as hard as I did while watching KUNG FU HUSTLE. It's super hilarious and enjoyably fun to watch! To me, it's pretty much like watching CROUCHING TIGER HIDDEN DRAGON (2000) or HERO (2004) but stylized using LOONEY TUNE elements; and, styles of old Screwball comedies from the works of say Mel Brooks or THE NAKED GUN series. That's how I see it. But other than that, everything from the camera movements to the art design and color are all uniquely displayed in maintaining the traditional wuxia style that has become symbolic in Chinese cinema. It's actually the only film I've seen by Stephen Chow but I'm anxious to see more of his work! But other than that, if you're looking for a great comedy to enjoy yourself with, I highly recommend you watch KUNG FU HUSTLE!

SHADOW (Ying)
Directed by Zhang Yimou
.
RSVP Required at: http://cs-shadow.splashthat.com
.
China
2018
116 minutes
In Mandarin with English Subtitles
Rated 15+ (Suitable for viewers ages 15 and above)
.
Zhang Yimou's re-imagining of the classic Three Kingdoms – Jingzhou epic, this action-drama tells the story of a powerful king and his people who have been displaced from their homeland and long to win it back. In an empire ruled by a wild and dangerous young king (Zheng Kai) whose court is a hive of politicking and treachery, the monarch’s brave military commander (Deng Chao) has cultivated a secret weapon to aid his survival: a “shadow,” a lookalike who can fool both his enemies and the King himself. Now he must use this weapon in an intricate plan that will lead his people to victory in a war that the King does not want. With Shadow, director Zhang Yimou once again pushes the boundaries of wuxia (martial arts epic) action to create a stunning film like no other, featuring tightly coiled, pitch-perfect acting by the ensemble cast and stunningly gorgeous sets and cinematography, this is an enthralling and magnificent epic that will both delight and surprise fans of the genre.

  • 40 Years of this Zombie Opera! Before spreading it’s voodoo magic to the world, “Zombi 2” opened in Italian cinemas on this day in 1979. A visceral, 70’s horror Italian film packed with some of cinema’s goriest and most effectively shot sequences. Backed by a hypnotically disquieting score by Maestro Fabio Frizzi, the macabre images displayed in this film would go on to haunt and delight viewers who dare visit it’s shores. The gore is almost poetic in it’s use.

  • Pain and Glory is the Spanish drama film directed and written by Pedro Almodóvar that was released in the U.K. last week, and has already amassed widespread critical acclaim. The film, which made its international debut at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival where the film was selected to compete for the Palme d’Or, was heralded as a "beautiful, full-hearted celebration of the craft of filmmaking" by The Playlist, and described as "a study of acceptance, revelation and reconciliation, and about cinema’s relationship with the past and its power to reshape and cohere memory as a means of coming to terms with it" by CineVue. Variety praised it as a "mature work of meticulously tuned meta-fiction", and IndieWire called it "the filmmaker’s best and most personal movie in years".⠀
⠀
Summary: Salvador Mallo (Antonio Banderas), a film director in his physical decline, experiences a series of reencounters. Some of them in the flesh, others remembered. His childhood in the 60s, when he emigrated with his parents to a village in Valencia in search of prosperity; the first desire; his first adult love in the Madrid of the 80s and the pain of the breakup while this love was still alive and intense; writing as the only therapy to forget the unforgettable; the early discovery of cinema; and the infinite void that creates the incapacity to keep on making films. In recovering his past, Salvador finds the urgent need to recount it and, in that need, he also finds his salvation. ⠀
