03-13-13 (L-R) Cast members Aaron Clifton Moten. Louisa Krause. Matthew Maher. Alex Hanna at the opening night party of "The Flick" in the West Bank Cafe St. 407 West 42nd St. Tuesday night 03-12-13

 







On Broadway, Vanya and Sonia and Marsha and Spike, by Christopher Durang, is the funniest play of the season. You will enjoy it from the beginning to the end. The cast  simply brilliant, and you will exit laughing. The opening night party was at Gotham hall with guests like Victor Garber, Fyvush Finkel and William Ivey Long.

 
Ann, by Holland Taylor, is a one woman show abut the late Governor Ann Richards of Texas, Taylor is a fine actress and tells amusing anecdotes about her life, but it is not a very dramatic play for the theatre.

 
Off-Broadway, Detroit '67, by Dominique Morisseau, is about a black sister and brother, who turn the basement of their house into an after hours club. When the brother brings an injured, mysterious white girl home, tensions arise. This takes place as the racial riots begin. The acting is good, but the play is cliched. 

 
The Dance and the Railroad, by David Henry Hwang, is about two Chinese men working on the transatlantic railroad during the nineteenth century. The older man wants to retain his culture practicing traditional dance, and the younger man wants to imitate him, in order to escape his depressing future. It is a dull, short play, that seems longer

 
The Lying Lesson, by Craig Lucas, is another two character play, about Bette Davis buying a house in Maine, who meets a young woman, who is the caretaker. It claims to be a mystery, but there is nothing thrilling about their actions in this tedious play.

 
Old Hats, conceived and performed by Bill Irwin and David Shiner, with music by Nellie McKay, has the two mimes returning with some new routines and some familiar ones. They are excellent clowns and the audience is entertained.

 
Hit the Wall, by Ike Holter, is an impressive play, recalling the 1969 Stonewall Inn riots that gave birth to the gay rights movement. The thirteen member cast work energetically to capture the mood of that occasion, with one member playing the role of a brutal cop. It is an outstanding performance by all involved. The opening night party took place at AOC Bistro.

 
Neva, by Guillermo Calderon, is a play about Anton Chekhov's widow rehearsing one of his plays with two actors. Outside the theatre, striking workers are being shot, on what historically became bloody Sunday. The actors perform in a tiny space in near darkness. The dense play is hard on the eyes as well as the ears. The opening night party took place in the lobby of The Public Theater.

 
The Flick, by Annie Baker, celebrated opening night at the West Bank Cafe with guests like Shuler Hensley, Judith Light, Reed Birney and many, many more.

 
Film Society of Lincoln Center and MoMA are presenting press screenings for New Directors/New Fims March 20-31.
 

03-15-13 Cast members (L-R) Genevieve Angelson. Billy Magnussen. Sigourney Weaver. Shalita Grant. Kristine Nielsen. David Hyde Pierce. at the opening night party of "Vanya and Sonia and Marsha and Spike" at Gotham Hall. 1356 Broadway. Thursday night 03-14-13

They'll Come Back, by Marcelo Lordello, Brazil, 2012, is a fascinating film about two children, who because they were fighting in their parents' car, were put outside on the highway as punishment. The 12-year-old girl (a wonderful Maria Luiza Tavares) is left alone by her brother, and her adventures, in which she grows into adulthood, is the engrossing plot of the film. I heartily recommend this unusual film.

 
Die Welt, by Alex Pitstra, The Netherlands, 2012, is the usual Middle Eastern immigrant wanting to escape to a better life in Europe. We see his life in Tunisia, and it ends with an unexpected twist. It is a very well made film

 
Viola, by Matias Pineiro, Argentina, 2013, has a convoluted story, in which young people in Buenos Aires are rehearsing and repeating their lines of dialog for a play, while searching for fulfillment in their relationships with men.

 
Towheads, by Sharon Plumb, USA, 2013, is a film that follows the daily life of a Brooklyn mother, overwhelmed while looking after two young sons and taking care of the home. It's an off beat, quirky movie, sometimes funny and other times silly. It features the director's family, husband and two sons, which turns it into a home movie and a self indulgent vanity project.

 
People's Park, by Libbie D. Cohn and J.P. Snidecki, USA/China, 2012, is a single tracking shot, that films the families of Chengdu enjoying a summer day in their park. They dance, sing, eat in outdoor restaurants and relax. The film itself is quite relaxing and it shows that the Chinese respect their park. 

 
Upstream Color, by Shane Carruth, USA, 2012, is a difficult film to follow. Although a couple are in love, the woman has been submitted to scientific experimentation, in which some scenes are horrifying. This is the cause of their weird relationship. There are also many scenes on a pig farm, which does not seem to be related to the film. I found the the film confusing and incoherent.

 
Stories We Tell, by Sarah Polley, Canada, 2012, is a wonderful film, in which the director discovers that her father, is not her biological father. This happens after her mother's early death. The way the film develops is intriguing.

 
Our Nixon, by Penny Lane, USA, 2013, is a look at the Nixon presidency, from homemade films, taken by his three closest assistants, H. R. Halderman, John Ehrlichman and Dwight Chapin, with recorded conversations. We see their devotion to the President, with intimate scenes of their relationship during his success and failure. It is a fascinating documentary.

 
The Interval, by Leonardo Di Costanzo, Italy/Switzerland/Germany, 2012, has a young girl being guarded by a young boy in an abandoned warehouse in Naples, because she has a problem with one of the gangs. The non professional two actors are quite convincing, but the plot isn't.

 
Room 237, by Rodney Ascher, USA, 2012, is about a group of fans finding hidden meanings in Stanley Kubrick's The Shining. It's an interesting view of some of the ideas of his obsessed fans. The voiceovers spoken by these fans, however, consists of "you know" and "like", which is irritating.

 
MoMA presented Ashes and Diamonds, by Andrzej Wajda, Poland, 1958, a neo-realistic film that takes place in Poland, about the day Germany surrendered in World War II. It is considered one of the important films of the period and the acting is quite good, with a love story existing among the tragedy of continued killings, as retribution for atrocities realized during wartime.

 
Ballet in Cinema from Emerging Pictures presented Notre-Dame de Paris, choreography by Roland Petit, music by Maurice Jarre, performed by the La Scala Ballet at Milan's Teatro alla Scala at a live performance on February 14, 2013. Natalia Osipova was splendid as Esmeralda. She was erotic, sensual and seems to float on air. She is a joy to watch. Roberto Bolle was superb as the hunchback Quasimodo, and Eris Nezha (Phoebus) and Mick Zeni (Frollo) contributed to the success of the ballet. The corps de ballet were simply wonderful with their quirky movements in unison. The orchestra played the score magnificently under the baton of Paul Connelly.
