“Buch, Kamera, Regie, Schnitt” nennt sich die Robert Polak gewidmete Werkschau im Vorarlberger Landesmuseum. Gestern Abend war Eröffnung, wir sahen zwei 8mm-Filme, die Polak mit seiner ersten Kamera gedreht hatte und seinen jüngsten, am Mac geschnittenen Dokumentarfilm über eine – seine – Strasse in Bregenz. Der 1963 zugefrorene Bodensee hatte es dem jungen Mann [...]

SFF14 – films I didn’t mention

2014-11-18 // 0 Comments

Almost … these two films almost made it into my reviews, but HILL OF FREEDOM by Sang-Soo Hong became too boring (after a good start: witty dialogues, a dog named “Dream” and a well reasoned anachronic storytelling made for some fun, whereas clumsy filming and overacting destroyed much of the effect later on), and SECOND COMING touched [...]

Saw him first as Brúnó in SVARTUR Á LEIK and was instantly intrigued by Damon Younger. Who is that guy?
