  Patrick Stewart - Film Work
Filmed largely in Ireland amongst the mud and mist, Boorman's film is a treat to look at and is well worth seeking out either on video or the occasional TV run.
The film is a visually stunning adaptation of Frank Herbert's cult sci-fi novel, with a fine cast of leading UK and European actors and a haunting soundtrack, but ultimately it never quite succeeds in fully capturing the scope of the book.
Filmed in Vancouver, the film was something of a departure from the more intense roles of the past for Patrick, and it is clearly apparent he has a lot of fun with the role of the villain here.

 The Film Journal...Passionate and informed film criticism from an auteurist perspective.   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The film’s initial screenings in Paris in July 1939 are now part of film legend: badly received by both critics and the public, the premiere even saw chairs thrown at the screen and an attempt to set the cinema on fire.
Shocked, Renoir cut the film from around 94 to 81 minutes, only to see the film banned by the government censors in October (the ban was rescinded some months later but then reimposed by the Germans during the Occupation).
Significantly, the film opens in the public arena of Le Bourget Airport where we witness a live radio broadcast in the midst of the large crowd awaiting the arrival of aviator hero André Jurieux.

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.

 Les Patriotes / Eric Rochant / 1994 / film review
Eric Rochant’s third full-length film is this ambitious big-budget thriller-drama which explores the morally dubious activities of the Israeli intelligence agency, Mossad, in the 1980s.
It is an engaging, sometimes shocking film, but it doesn’t perhaps have the depth and impact that a serious political thriller warrants.
The film’s uncompromising depiction of Mossad’s methods — which would appear to be on a par with those of the CIA — is unlikely to curry favour with many Jewish sympathisers.

 Bright Lights Film Journal | John Woo interview
Known for his breathtakingly choreographed action sequences featuring balletic shoot-outs and spurting exit wounds, Woo's films are also often tragic and sentimental, engaging with themes of loyalty and honor and the place of the loner hero in a world full of corruption and violence.
A Better Tomorrow (1986), hailed by many as the film that reinvented the Hong Kong action genre, broke box-office records in Hong Kong, relaunched Woo's career (he had been making moderately successful comedies and musicals since the mid-1970s), and introduced him to fans in the West.
I had not been to a film festival before and was unaware how many fans and friends I had.

 The Final Option (1994)
Most of this pride-inducing recruitment film for the SDU can be predicted miles away, which doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be watched.
One of the film’s largest problems is the fact that Peter Yung is essentially the male lead and he’s plastic as all hell.
The by-the-book, official procedure sort of stuff (which is the hallmark of these films) is done all right, but as far as integrating it into character...well, this film sort of falls short.

It’s not like the whole film is people fucking, and yet that’s what people fixate on – which I think makes sense in the culture since it’s such a taboo – but, there’s a more subtle side to the film.

Black Ain't," on fl identity in a lesbian/gay/bisexual film festival is an appropriate one, according to Jacquiline Nassy Brown, assistant professor of anthropology with a joint appointment in African American Studies.
Brown, who was able to work on the film in 1992 during a break from her own research on fl identity in Liverpool, England, described the two main goals that she feels the film accomplishes.
"This film is an elegant piece as his last one because it brings closure to his body of work in the way that it speaks back to other works and depends on previous works," Brown explained.

One of the most beloved and controversial films in Bulgaria, it is also the biggest box-office hit in the history of Bulgarian cinema.
The popularity abroad of this film might be best understood in the light of history: during the seventeeth century, the Ottoman Turks made life quite miserable for Bulgarians.
Seemingly a simple view, this film explores the effects (or lack of) of modernism and proves the age old adage that the more that things change the more they stay the same.

I was basically at the mercy of Goldwyn's distribution schemes (not that I had any experience or knowledge of film distribution) but since they were the only company that committed anything to the film I was not really in any position to complain.
The people at Goldwyn were fine and there were even a few people who worked very hard for the film and without their effort the film would have even fared worse.

The International Film Series (IFS) provides a forum for foreign and American independent cinemas, many of which are not exhibited in non-urban commercial theaters.
IFS (like its companion First Person Cinema) maintain public access to films that were considered aesthetically adventurous in their day (Warhol, Oshima, Makavejev, Godard, etc.), and still carry resonance because of their influence on others.
Pioneered in 1953 by independent film artists Stan Brakhage and Bruce Conner, the program exhibits works by established and emerging film artists, and offers both a historical perspective as well as a contemporary view of experimental film and video.
