 Sundance Independent Film Festival 2000
The 2000 Sundance Film Festival, January 20-30 in Park City, Utah, still considered by both industry insiders and filmmakers alike to be the most prestigious film festival in North America, unveiled a first-of-the-millennium festival showcase designed to assure it's preeminence as a ground-breaking event for independent film well into the new century.
Amongst the Dramatic submissions, we saw a number of films that were 'Millennium' themed; fewer coming-of-age stories and quirky comedies, and more works that were personal...many of which evoked a sense of loneliness and alienation at the century's close."...
Still, the 2000 Sundance Film Festival managed to conclude as a kinder, gentler film festival determined to re-emphasize its focus on the filmmaker and de-emphasize its reputation as a buyers convention for mainstream indie film.

 Australian Film - the Year 2000 in Review
When I think back to films of 2000 that have truly pushed the boundaries of the medium, raised questions I had never thought of and challenged my very notions of filmmaking, it is a sad realization that none have been Australian.
Kennedy's is allusive and whimsical but remarkably so: in The Bridge, her very first short film, she creates a distinct tone in the first moments of the film, keyed to the drama of the story, through placing together a series of abstract images, the right use of slow-motion and a minimal, haunting score.
There is something urgent, explosive and vibrant in her films and a certain melodrama both on the level of form and content.

 National Film Registry, 1999
The list is designed to reflect the full breadth and diversity of America's film heritage, thus increasing public awareness of the richness of American cinema and the need for its preservation.
Fifty percent of the films produced before 1950 and at least 90 percent made before 1920 have disappeared forever.
And, ominously, more films are lost each year -- through the ravages of nitrate deterioration, color-fading and the recently discovered 'vinegar syndrome,' which threatens the acetate-based (safety) film stock on which the vast majority of motion pictures, past and present, have been preserved," said Dr. Billington.

Average the results of each film and aperture setting,then find the difference of each three averages the different film speed and the one with the largest number is the least tolerant etc.

 Digital Film Scanners - Nikon Super CoolScan 2000 Film Scanner Review, Information, and Specifications
Underexposed slides or dense negatives are a challenge for any film scanner: With so little light coming through the film, the electronics have a hard time measuring it, and "noise" from the sensor often swamps the signal coming from the image.
The LS-2000 comes with three film holders, one for mounted 35mm slides, one for loose strips of 35mm film, and a third "clamshell"-style holder for handling badly-curved strips of film via the slide adapter.
Nikon's FH-2 clamshell film holder deserves special mention here, thanks to its construction and ease of use: It did an excellent job handling the badly-curled "severe damage" negative: In our experience, clamshell holders of this sort are often awkward to use with curled negatives, but we had no such problem with the Nikon version.

 Fantasia 2000 (2000) - PopMatters Film Review
IMAX theaters use the world's largest film format (ten times larger than the 35mm frame used in most theaters) and because the pictures are so sharp, the screens so large, and the sound system so advanced, it is easy to feel like you are in the middle of the action.
This is why you won't find the film at some IMAX theaters — since many are attached to science or educational centers, and they use funds from IMAX movies to subsidize the centers, they just couldn't afford to run Fantasia 2000 under these circumstances (or they resented the restrictions).
Because so much of what is impressive about Fantasia 2000, or different from other Disney features, is dependent on the IMAX technology that makes one feel enveloped in the experience, it will be a less majestic experience on a regular screen.

What a sheer delight this TV film was.
Jenny Agutter, as Mother (originally oldest daughter in the 1970 version) took a bit of a back seat, but I thought the young actors who played her children did a splendid job.
I highly recommend this film - it really is a breath of fresh air, when we suffer so much from films which show much bleak dystopia, or over-sugary romantic mush.

 August 2000 Reviews. Film Music on the Web (UK) scrolling file Part 2 No CD covers   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-05)
The films were made in mono, and at the very best it is doubtful that the original music tracks were recorded in anything more than stereo.
I am guessing, from the age of the recordings, and from the fact that they come from Italian movies, where multi-channel sound was not generally in use in the early 60's, that these are mono recordings processed with a three-dimensional digital reverb in an attempt to create a greater sense of spaciousness.
The film was based on the life of Tsar Ivan IV of Russia whose reign (1547-84) was marked by a great progress in terms of political reform – but at a price.

 Amazon.com: Halliwell's Film and Video Guide 2000 (Halliwell's Film & Video Guide): Books: editor, John Walker,Leslie ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-05)
Most other film guides, while they purport to rate movies on a scale of 0 to 4 stars, really just use 2.5 to 4 (with ratings of 0 to 2 all meaning "not recommended" -- but who cares whether a film is rated 1 versus 1.5, if it's not recommended, don't bother).
And another refreshing aspect is that relatively few films get the highest rating of 4-stars, unlike some critics who give 4-stars to half the films they see, making the rating meaningless.
Many film entries are peppered with quotes from other critics, often going against Halliwell's and Walker's assessment and offering an alternate evaluation -- this shows that these gentleman have an open mind.

 Hong Kong 2000: capsule film reviews by Shelly Kraicer
It was one of the most popular films in 2000 in HK, though, so if you're curious about what HKers are still going to their cinemas to see, then it's worth watching.
That the HK film industry can come up with this rich drama in the same year as Jiang Hu: the Triad Zone, Needing You, and In the Mood For Love hints that it may be well on the way to an artistic (if not commercial) revival.
Although it is heartening to see a Milkyway Image film with an international profile (it has certainly caught the eyes of many international film festival programmers), the film doesn't concern itself with servicing an audience's desire for pleasure, as do Running Out of Time and Johnnie To's huge domestic hit Needing You.

 Miklós Jancsó
Thus the time of the film and that of the action become synchronous - as in theatre, the audience experiences the time as the characters in the drama.
The structure of the film is circular; it ends with a picture of the same road and the same character from which it started, suggesting that nothing was learned during the revolutionary process of "making history".
The film received the Gene Moskowitz prize from foreign critics at the 30th Annual Hungarian Film Week festival in 1999.

If you can ignore the glaring holes in the film's setup, this is as tight and well-directed a sf-action film as one could ask for.
About the only time the film comes alive is when it shows the creation of Jackson Pollock's paintings;; then there's a raw physicality and emotion that's missing from the rest of the film.
Mind you, that film would also not ignore the obvious question about a relationship where a devoted best friend/roommate is raising her friend's daughter as her own!
