The New World (2005)

3/4

Terrence Malick does the Terrence Malick thing once again in The New World, this time through the story of Pocahontas. Colin Farrell and Christian Bale are both perfectly fine as the men who vie for her affections, but it is Q’orianka Kilcher as Pocahontas herself who really blows both of them out of the water. 153 more words

A magical evening even if you haven't climbed the mountain of learning Danish!

I had the pleasure to see the performance of one of my favourite old-time classics. And this is my review.

I have known for some time that Det NY theater was going to show ‘The Sound of Music’ in Danish and ever since secretly hoped (and been prepared to fight) that I would get to see it. 741 more words

REVIEW: Remember

“As I speak to you now, the icy water of the ponds and ruins fill the hallows of the mass graves, a frigid and muddy water, as murky as our memory.” These words come from the powerful closing monologue of Alain Resnais’ seminal 1955 documentary short “Night and Fog,” one of cinema’s first attempts to grapple with the Holocaust. 339 more words

Never ForgetĀ 

The past collides with the present in Atom Egoyan’s Remember, an exploitational Holocaust revenge thriller, about a demented Jewish widower turned Nazi hunter. Christopher Plummer is riveting in the lead role, playing Zev, a ninety year-old who promises his nursing home friend and fellow Auschwitz survivor (Martin Landau) that he’ll track down a Nazi who assumed the identity of a Jew and fled to the United States following World War II. 87 more words
