Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben -October 12, 2013

 



Aubrey Reuben




On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
October 12, 2013

10-08-13 (L-R) (Standing) Legendary former New York Yankee Yogi Berra. cast members Richard Topol who plays Yogi. kneeling Christopher Jackson at the opening night for "Bronx Bombers" at The Duke on West 42nd St. Tuesday night 10-08-13

 
 
On Broadway, A Night with Janis Joplin, written and directed by Randy Johnson, is basically a concert, very loud and highly amplified, performed by Mary Bridget Davies as the famous Rock 'n' Roll singer. She tells her life story between songs, and shows the influences of black singers on her career, like Aretha Franklin and Bessie Smith, with other cast members, who imitate them in various songs. For fans of Joplin, this will be an opportunity to be reacquainted with her work.

 
Off-Broadway, Bronx Bombers, by Eric Simonson, is a play that baseball fans will enjoy, especially New York Yankee fans. It begins in 1977 when the conflict between playerReggie Jackson and manager Billy Martin have a conflict, with coach Yogi Berra trying to resolve it In the second act there is a dream sequence of a dinner party with all the legendary players like Babe Ruth and Joe DiMaggio. It is well acted by the nine member cast, and I heartily recommend it. Yogi Berra attended the opening night and the opening night party took place at West Bank Cafe. 

 
I attended a splendid all Balanchine short story program in the final fourth week of the New York City Ballet. It began with La Sonnambula, music by Vittorio Rieti, a mysterious ballet about a sleepwalker (a brilliant Sterling Hyltin) and a poet (Robert Fairchild), who is entranced by her. Prodigal Son, music by Sergei Prokofiev, followed with Daniel Ulbricht superb in the title role, and Maria Kowroski sensual as the Siren. The program concluded with the funny Slaughter on Tenth Avenue, music by Richard Rodgers, with an outstanding performance by Andrew Veyette, enamored with the sexy Sara Means as the Striptease Girl. It was an entertaining night at the ballet, and I eagerly await the company's winter program.

 
The press screenings of the 51st New York Film Festival September 27 - October 13 continue. The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, by Ben Stiller, USA, 2013, is an entertaining, completely different, new version of the 1947 comedy starring Danny Kaye. In the title role, Ben Stiller stars as an employee of Life magazine, in charge of the negatives on file. He daydreams constantly, in particular, about the new female employee (Kirsten Wiig). As this is the last issue of the magazine, Stiller is responsible for the last page negative, which he cannot locate. His daydreams turn to reality, full of adventures, as he journeys to Iceland to find the legendary photographer (played by Sean Penn) and recover the lost negative. The film is scheduled to open to the public on Christmas day, and should be a successful family entertainment.

12 Years a Slave, by Steve McQueen, USA, 2013 is based on a true story, of a free Black man, kidnapped in 1841 and sold as a slave. He is one of the few, who returned to freedom. The film depicts the brutal treatment slaves received from their white masters on plantations in the South. We witness men and women being whipped mercilessly, slaves being lynched, and all the humiliation suffered by these unfortunate human beings. Chiwetel Ejiofor gives a powerful performance as the slave serving 12 years of horror. The brutality and cruelty is shown time and time again in this overlong film.

 
All is Lost, by J. C. Chandor, USA, 2013, has an old man (Robert Redford) trying to survive  eight days on a damaged yacht in the Indian Ocean. It is an harrowing ordeal, and Redford gives a splendid, realistic performance. As he is alone, it is virtually a silent movie. The photography is magnificent.

 
Nebraska. by Alexander Payne, USA, 2013, is one of the highlights of the festival. Bruce Dern received the Best Actor Award at the Cannes Film festival, and it is easy to understand why. He plays an old, feeble man, who thinks he has won a million dollar prize. His son (Will Forte) drives him from his home in Billings, Montana to Lincoln, Nebraska to claim the non-existent prize. On the way, there are lots of adventures, especially in the town where he grew up in Nebraska. It is a sweet, beautiful, naturalistic, funny, sad film, and the acting by everyone in the film is sensational. It is one of the most enjoyable films of the year.

 
The Invisible Woman, by Ralph Fiennes, UK, 2013, is a film about the secret relationship between a young actress, Nelly Terman (Felicity Jones) and Charles Dickens (Ralph Fiennes), the famous married novelist with ten children. The costume drama captures the atmosphere of the nineteenth century in England and the Victorian moral life, which required secrecy in adulterous relationships. Unfortunately, the story moves at a snail's pace, and is quite dull.

 
Only Lovers Left Alive, by Jim Jarmusch, USA, 2013, is a film about vampires. One (Tilda Swinton) lives in Tangier and visits her lover and fellow vampire (Tom Hiddleston) in Detroit. Unfortunately, a younger vampire sister from California comes to visit unexpectedly and causes trouble. Nearly every scene is filmed in darkness, and the vampires walk and drive around a lot. Apparently, their love live is not very interesting, as is this silly picture.

 
Blue is the Warmest Color, by Abdellatif Kechiche, France, 2013, begins with a high school teenager (Adele Exarchopoulos in a marvelous, sensitive performance) exploring her sexuality. When she realizes that she is attracted to women, she begins a warm and tender relationship with an older painter (Lea Seydoux), and we follow this loving, and, subsequently, sad affair for ten years. The film won the Palme O'Or at the 2013 Festival  de Cannes, and is well deserved.

 
Opera in Cinema from Emerging Pictures presented Rigoletto, by Verdi, from Teatro Antico, Taormina, Italy, in a live performance on July 9, 2013. This open air production was well sung, especially by the male singers. Carlos Almaguer (Rigoletto), Gianluca Terranova (Duke of Mantua) and Emanuele Cordaro (Sparafucile) sang with strong voices, andRocio Ignacio was a touching Gilda, who received a tremendous ovation for her aria Caro Nome, in the second scene of the first act. Gianluigi Martinenghi conducted the orchestra. It was a splendid evening of grand opera.
