Review: Lowriders, Battling for the Soul of an Artist

Self-righteous certitude, seething resentment, and taciturn parental authority collide repeatedly in Lowriders, an exploration of a nuclear family and Mexican-American culture. Directed with conviction by Ricardo de Montreuil and bathed in amber by cinematographer Andrés Sánchez, the film is similar in look to the duo's previous feature together. Released more than 10 years ago, La mujer de mi hermano (aka My Brother's Wife ) was a gauzy representation of a dreamy fantasy, filled with familial melodrama. More grounded in reality, Lowriders is nonetheless still stuffed with a heightened sense of drama, blended this time with an earnest desire to educate outsiders and celebrate car culture. The original script by Elgin James and Cheo Hodari Coker lays out the archetypes clearly, mostly following Danny Alvarez (Gabriel...

So Gently He Came A Tapping! Liam Hemsworth Cast In ‘The Raven’

Liam Hemsworth may take on the lead in The Raven. Don’t panic! You haven’t fallen through a tear in the space time continuum, that 2011 film starring John Cusack still exists. This is a completely different The Raven, based on a spectacular short film by director Ricardo de Montreuil. Hemsworth will play a young man named Chris Black, who lives in a futuristic setting where he discovers a power that could change society for the better, but also sees him being hunted down because of said power.

Montreuil will return to direct and scripting duties will be handled by Justin Marks. Montreuil was also responsible for the little seen, but highly rewarding dramas Mancora and La Mujer De Mi Hermano. Until The Raven starts filming, Hemsworth will be seen reprising his role in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

Here’s the short film that forms the basis of The Raven

Liam Hemsworth In Talks to Star in The Raven

While the studio has yet to confirm the news, Deadline is reporting that Liam Hemsworth (The Hunger Games) will star in the sci-fi thriller The Raven. The film is based on the award-winning 2010 short directed and co-written by Ricardo de Montreuil (Máncora, La Mujer de mi Hermano), who will also be at the helm of the Universal Pictures project. The feature-length film, only described as a sci-fi conspiracy thriller set in the future, will be produced by Stephen Levinson (Entourage) and Mark Wahlberg. A trailer for the short shows a futuristic world very reminiscent of The Fifth Element – without all the glam and lights of city – in which a man is wanted for his supernatural abilities. This would be the perfect opportunity for Hemsworth to depart from his romance-movie roles and show off more of his action chops and stand-alone power. His latest project, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, recently

I'm Gonna Explode

 

Reviewer: James van Maanen

Rating (out of 5): ***

If cinema reflects the state of its country of origin, and I believe it always does, then things are not looking up for Mexico, nor have they in all of my lifetime (Bunuel was not imagining things with his darkly imaginative creations). Scratch a Mexican movie and -- unless it's a nitwit romantic comedy or something on the order of the soap-opera slushy, Latin American co-production La Mujer de mi hermano that was released here a few years back -- you're likely to have your nose rubbed in heavy-duty class divisions, with the nasty rich struggling to hold onto everything they have, while the poor and would-be upwardly mobile, hardly much better, are scrambling to pull themselves up by their crap-infested bootstraps. Nothing changes and everything looks grim -- though it's often brought to life with great style. (See Nicotinafor a dose of that style.

Mori's new film not released in India

Mori's new film not released in India
Barbara Mori's latest picture has not been released in India due to Kites's poor box office figures, according to reports. The Mexican actress made her debut in Kites alongside Hrithik Roshan but the film was not a hit with Bollywood audiences. Her new Spanish movie La Mujer De Mi Hermano (My Brother's Wife), which has been dubbed in Hindi and English, will now apparently not be released in India because of the Kites failure.

question of the day: “Remixing” a foreign film for North American audiences: good idea?

Yesterday I posted a trailer for the Bollywood film Kites, which opens today all over the planet on the same day it also opens in India: it’s an attempt to drum up some love outside India and Indian ex-pat communites among mainstream moviegoers for the movies that are often seen by more people than many Hollywood films... though only inside India. Bollywood certain makes more films in any given year than Hollywood does, but so far, not one of them has captured the attention of non-Indian audiences around the world the way that Hollywood films cross cultural barriers. So, here comes Kites, which is not exactly a traditional Bollywood film to start with. From a press release about the film: Produced on an epic scale, and set primarily against the lavish backdrop of Las Vegas, Kites tells the story of two star-crossed lovers who are destined to be together

On Tuesday 18th May the stars of one of the most ambitious and truly international films to emerge from India will bring a touch of Bollywood romance, Latino passion and Hollywood action-adventure to the Red Carpet outside Odeon West End, Leicester Square, London.

Kites is the widest ever release for any Indian film production to date and heralds a new milestone in international filmmaking.

Ventana Sur, The First Latin American - European Film Market to be held on Latin American Ground.

The positive energy here is palpable. Everyone is not only happy to be here, but business is brisk. It feels like a natural place for a Latin American market with films, buyers and sellers all discussing Spanish language films con mucho gusto.

A lot of Incaa and Euro money went into this. Held in the magnificent space of Harrods next to Calle Florida where shopping deals rule, and in the Cinemark Theaters on the Rio de la Plata River, well organized with online screenings of films which will continue to be available to participants for the next two months on Cinando, it looks ordained as a key event on the market calendar.

How it will compare to Guadalajara Film Festival and Market in March is a question that hangs in the air. Cinando's participation there goes back four years with its active Co-Production Market.
