by Daniel Quitério

Edward Snowden and reporter Glenn Greenwald in Citizenfour

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.

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.

“Dear White People” Red Band Trailer

dear-white-people

Winner of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival’s Special Jury Award for Breakthrough Talent, Dear White People is a sly, provocative satire of race relations in the age of Obama. Writer/director Justin Simien follows a group of African American students as they navigate campus life and racial politics at a predominantly white college in a sharp and funny feature film debut that earned him a spot on Variety’s annual “10 Directors to Watch.” When Dear White People screened at MOMA’s prestigious New Directors/New Films, the New York Times’ A.O. Scott wrote, “Seeming to draw equal measures of inspiration from Whit Stillman and Spike Lee, but with his own tart, elegant sensibility very much in control, Mr. Simien evokes familiar campus stereotypes only to smash them and rearrange the pieces.”

MINI Unveils Superleggera Vision Concept Car

mini_concept_00

Taking a nod to offering a different style of vehicle to the market, which looks like it’s swaying towards larger vehicles comes the last introduction from MINI, with their Superlegger Vision concept car, designed in collaboration with Italian coach builders Touring Superleggera.

“The idea was to conceive a modern Riva power boat for the road, a proper Italian barchetta with a British soul,” says design chief Anders Warming. “While Minis typically have short stubby noses, the Superleggera musters a relaxed cab backward design with a self-conscious and relatively long front end. We did not want to end up with a retro-look car, but tapping the tradition of the great English roadster was perfectly okay – think MGA, Triumph TR2, Austin Healey.”

While the car is still in concept design stages, BMW (who own MINI) has hinted that it may actually see the light of day. “First of all, we would like to gauge the reception here at the show,” said Peter Schwarzenbauer, a Member of the Board of Management of BMW AG, when speaking to CAR. “If it is positive, we might shift up a gear.”
