  La Sentinelle / The Sentinel / Arnaud Desplechin / 1992   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The film is as much a portrait of contemporary student life – albeit in a rather elitist circle – as it is a conspiracy thriller.
Indeed, one of the reasons why the film has such an impact is because it switches seamlessly from the world of the familiar to the world of the distinctly unfamiliar, occasionally catching us off guard and shocking us with images which appear, at first glance, surreal, until they assume a frightening reality.
The film is also far more character-oriented than most thrillers, and for much of the film there doesn’t seem to be much of a plot to speak of.

When the film begins, the physician is on his first day as a member the staff of the facility in the late 1980s, when the specter of AIDS pervades prison life.
In each case, what stands out, though unarticulated in the film, is that they are poor and have no attorneys to defend their actions, which in some cases may be justifiable; indeed, many are being detained indefinitely until their cases come up before a judge.

 Redefining Film Preservation: A National Plan - National Film Preservation Board (Library of Congress)
Film is a fragile medium, intended for brief commercial life; preservation aims at slowing its inevitable decay through environmentally controlled storage and duplication onto newer filmstock.
Film reproduction in scholarship is beginning to move from frame enlargements in print publications to frames, sounds and sequences in educational multimedia.
As noted in the 1993 hearings and interviews, avant-garde and independent films are today among the most in need of preservation attention--due to the conditions under which the films were made, the limited number of release prints, and the inability of filmmakers to pay for adequate storage.

 Film Industry/Latinas   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Due to the fact that silent film only "spoke" through images to all nations, non-Anglo ethnic groups were able to play a major role in early filmmaking.
The reason why Latina actresses during the silent film era did not have to change their names was because they attained prior "recognition" or were at least known for the roles they played on stage (Noriega, 1992).
Although racial attitudes were reflected in films since the silent era, systematic discrimination took time to develop.

 In the Soup (1992)
Winner of the Grand Jury Dramatic Prize at the 1992 Sundance Film Festival, Alexandre Rockwell's In the Soup is a whimsically funny deadpan comedy that's never quite gotten its due.
And unlike his fellow 1992 Sundance alumnus Quentin Tarantino (Reservoir Dogs premiered at the festival that year), writer/director Alexandre Rockwell hasn't enjoyed much success, either critically or commercially, over the last 12 years.
Aside from directing one of the segments in the misbegotten anthology film Four Rooms (1995), Rockwell has made two films, both of which received negligible distribution.
