Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben - October 5, 2013

 



Aubrey Reuben

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
October 5, 2013

10-04-13 (L-R) Cast members David Ayers. Dee Dee Bridgewater. Rafael Pouriet at the opening night party for "Lady Day" at B. Smith.
320 West 46th St. Thursday night 10-03-13

 
 
Off-Broadway, A revival of  The Film Society, by Jon Robin Baitz, takes place in a high school in South Africa in 1970, where the politics of apartheid invade the school and affects a young teacher, who just wants to run his film club without distractions. It is a well acted, intelligent play.

 
Lady Day, by Stephen Stahl, tells the story of Billie Holiday, as she rehearses for a concert in London in November 1954. The second act consists of the actual concert. Dee Dee Bridgewater gives a wonderful performance as the alcoholic, drug addicted jazz singer, accompanied by four excellent musicians. The songs are well known and are a delight to hear again. The opening night party took place at B. Smith. Many guests at the opening included Tony Bennett, Valerie Simpson, Michael Feinstein and Leslie Uggams.

 
I photographed Seka, the Legendary Porn Star signing her book Inside Seka: The Platinum Princess of Porn at the Museum of Sex. I've read her book which is quite interesting and honest. I was impressed.

 
I went to Kathleen Chalfant's home in the West Village for another book party Backstage Pass to Broadway, by Susan L. Schulman. It was a delightful party, as Susan read selections from the book as a press agent for numerous Broadway plays and actors. Many actors were present, including Penny Fuller, Lee Roy Reams and Patricia Elliott.

 
I also went to NeueHouse, 110 East 25th St, a wonderful new club, where First Time Fest - A Second Time Kick-Off Celebration, with co-founders Mandy Ward and Johanna Bennett held a reception. We toasted them with glorious champagne. The festival will take place April 3-7, 2014. I will be there.

 
I attended part of the After Midnight press preview, with Wynton Marsalis leading the Jazz at Lincoln Center All Stars at Dizzy's Club Coca Cola. They will open on Broadway November 3, and I can hardly wait to attend.

 
I photographed the cast of Small Engine Repair at a Meet & Greet. I look forward to its opening night.

I went to a private party to celebrate the launch of DTR Styles, New York's Newest Personal Shopping & Styling Service. Celebrity fashion stylist Dana Tycher Reisman held the party at a new elegant restaurant B & Co. 14 East 58th St, where cocktails and delicious hors d'oeuvres were served.

 
The press screenings of the 51st New York Film Festival September 27 - October 13 continue. My Name is Hmmm..., by Agnes b., France, 2013, is an interesting film about an 11-year-old girl , who is affected by being sexually abused by her father. She runs away and finds refuge in a truck, where the truck driver befriends her. They spend a few days happily together traveling in the Southwest of France, until captured by the police with tragic consequences. For a first film by a dress designer, it is an impressive achievement.

 
Omar, by Hany Abu-Assad, Palestinian Territories, 2013, is a convoluted story about three childhood friends, who want to be freedom fighters in the West Bank. It is a harsh look at life for Palestinians, with many brutal scenes. There is also a love story between the titled character and the sister of his friend. However, much of the story is unbelievable and hard to follow. 

 
Hail Mary, by Jean-Luc Godard, France/Switzerland/UK, 1985, caused a scandal when it first appeared, condemned by the Vatican. It is a modern tale of a virgin, who becomes pregnant without engaging in sex. Of course, today, this seems innocuous and is just fantasy. Since the film is largely incoherent, with pretty actresses, who are sometimes naked, it hardly deserves the reputation it achieved. From October 9-30, there is a retrospective of the director's films during the festival.

 
The Chase, by Arthur Ripley, USA, 1946 is one of the revivals being shown in the festival. Starring Robert Cummings and Michele Morgan, it is an unconvincing "film noir". A World War II veteran is hired as a chauffeur by a gangster and gets involved with his wife. The plot is creaky and defies belief.

 
Real, by Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Japan, 2013, is an overlong, confusing film, about a young couple in modern day Tokyo. The woman falls into a coma, and after one year, the husband tries to reach her unconscious mind through "sensing". Then we learn, the man is actually in a coma, and it is the wife who tries to reach his unconscious mind. Then, a dinosaur appears, and by then, I was ready to go into a coma. The photography, however, is beautiful.

 
The Immigrant, by James Gray, USA, 2013, creates an authentic atmosphere of the arrival of immigrants to Ellis Island in 1921 and their miserable lives on the lower East Side.Marion Cotillard is the Polish immigrant, who is helped by Joaquin Phoenix as a burlesque house manager, who recruits young women for the theatre and prostitution. His cousin (Jeremy Renner) is a magician, who is also interested in Cotillard, leading to  a bitter and tragic rivalry. It is a grim, depressing film.

 
Bastards, by Claire Denis, France, 2013, is a disjointed film, purporting to be about a sex scandal in France. However, most of the film deals with a lust affair between a glumVincent Lindon as a neighbor to the mistress of a wealthy man. a colorless Chiara Mastroianni. Most scenes made no sense, including the unbelievable conclusion.

 
Gloria, by Sebastian Lelio, Chile/Spain, 2013, is a film about a divorced, middle-aged woman, who smokes and drinks too much, and who meets a divorced man at a dance club, with whom she conducts an unsatisfactory relationship. It is a view of a frustrated, lonely life for a woman of a certain age in modern day Chile. In the title role, Paulina Garcia gives a fearless performance, displaying total frontal nudity throughout many scenes in the film.

 
MoMA has a wonderful exhibition of the great Italian film scenic designer Dante Ferretti, and is screening films under the title, Dante Ferretti: Designing for the Big Screen until February 9, 2014. Salo or 120 Days of Sodom, by Pier Paolo Pasolini, Italy, 1975, is based on the writings of the Marquis de Sade. Four powerful aristocrats in Nazi-occupied Northern Italy, during the final year of World War II, hold a number of young men and women captive in a mansion and indulge in sexual perversion. It is an unpleasant film to watch, and at the end of the screening, half the audience had, luckily, left. The scenic design by Ferretti is good to look at. The film is not.
