Portrait Eyewear – Framing The Artist

by Keith Green

Gabriel & Valentina Hern+índez

Try as you might, you’ll be hard pressed to find a high quality project that’s design-savvy and makes a social statement simultaneously. That’s what we call art and Portrait Eyewear has caught our attention. The result of a mixed background in photography and design, the unique formula of a half Spanish, half Venezuelan team, with multicultural experiences living in different countries, Gabriel and Valentina Hernandez, brother and sister, have created a brand that innovates within the eyewear market, showcasing a beautiful aesthetic with high quality materials. Its shape draws inspiration from visual arts and revisits the vintage genre through a contemporary minimalistic design. The frames are flat, edges are sharper and inserts are made out of acetate instead of metal.

New York Film Festival Review: Birdman

by Curtis John

Michael Keaton and Edward Norton in Birdman

Series: Main Slate (Closing Night Film)

Whether it is once a year or once every five years, there is a film that shatters your perceptions of what reality is, should be—or both. Oftentimes, this film is science-fiction (The Matrix, 1999), a foreign film (Holy Motors, 2012), or just a complete genre bender (Donnie Darko, 2001).

Birdman (or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) is all these and more—and less. Confused? Don’t be. Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s newest film defies an easy explanation, but has a plot that is easily accessible and entertaining, thanks to its meta accents that do not fall into pure parody.

New York Film Festival Review: Foxcatcher

by Daniel Quitério

Channing Tatum and Steve Carell in Foxcatcher

Series: Main Slate

Haunting. There’s perhaps no better word to describe the true story of DuPont chemicals heir John E. du Pont and his curious relationship with Olympic champion wrestlers, brothers Mark and David Schultz. In filmmaker Bennett Miller’s third feature, Steve Carell plays against type (superbly) to embody the eccentric—if not mildly psychopathic—du Pont in this 1980s-set true story. To call Foxcatcher a “sports movie” is providing it a disservice. Yes, wrestling provides more than just a backdrop for the narrative, but the most compelling aspect of the two-hour-plus drama is the character study it provides, especially among the three leads. These include du Pont, a man who’s perhaps never heard the word no in his life, striving to gain his mother’s approval; Mark (Channing Tatum), a man, who despite his champion status, struggles to step out of his older brother’s shadow; and David (Mark Ruffalo), a family man who must balance what’s best for his wife and children with his brotherly duties.

by Daniel Quitério

Edward Snowden and reporter Glenn Greenwald in Citizenfour

Series: Special Presentation (World Premiere)

Who would have thought the year’s greatest thriller would be a documentary? In the days following Citizenfour’s world premiere at the New York Film Festival last Friday, various news and entertainment outlets have been lauding filmmaker Laura Poitras’s achievement, and rightfully so. Of all the films this reviewer screened at the 52nd New York Film Festival, none has left an impact quite as deep as Citizenfour.

New York Film Festival Review: The Look of Silence

by Opal H. Bennett

Series: Spotlight on Documentary

Joshua Oppenheimer’s The Look of Silence continues where his 2013 Oscar-nominated documentary, The Act of Killing, left off. Silence fixes an unblinking lens on the atrocities of the Indonesian death squads that systematically carried out civilian-led slaughters of ethnic Chinese in the 1960s. Where the first film focuses on the squad leaders, this one features their victims, namely Adi, an earnest and brave optician who seeks the truth about the death of his older brother, Ramil.

New York Film Festival Review: Clouds of Sils Maria

by Daniel Quitério

Juliette Binoche and Kristen Stewart in Clouds of Sils Maria

Series: Main Slate (US Premiere)

Set in the breathtaking Swiss Alps, veteran actress Maria Enders (Juliette Binoche) prepares to star in the revival of a play that made her famous many years earlier. The role that catapulted her into stardom, that of Sigrid, a savvy vixen who engages in a power struggle with her older boss, Helena, will be played by troubled “it girl” Jo-Ann Ellis (a mesmerizing Chloë Grace Moretz). Enders will be taking on the role of Helena, one that she is not mentally prepared to play. With the help of her loyal assistant, Valentine (Kristen Stewart), Maria reluctantly faces the challenge head on, and in the process must come to grips with themes of aging—both in terms of the play and in her own life.

New York Film Festival Review: Merchants of Doubt

by Opal H. Bennett

Series: Spotlight on Documentary

Given the setting of a magician’s world, where nothing is as it seems, Merchants of Doubt sets out to reveal secrets. But unlike the moral contract between magician and audience, where spectators are willingly duped, Merchants focuses on the covert work done by PR hired guns to mislead the public about facts that are inconvenient to powerful interests. Think 20 years of Big Tobacco’s carefully curated “ignorance” about addiction and health affects, and you’ll get the picture.
