PFS Spring Preview Film Festival

Tuesday, March 23, 2010

So, as sad as it was that Philadelphia Cinema Alliance had to shelf CineFest this spring; Philly film buffs will still have a chance to enjoy a mini spring Film Festival through Philadelphia Film Society sponsored by Pennsylvania Hospital. (See attached below Press Release)

The weekend festival begins Friday, April 9th at 5pm with 11 "FREE" films in all.
Scroll down for film & event schedule

The only problem I see is that I have not been granted a press pass:( There's no better feeling than arriving 15min before a screening, bypassing every other regular filmgoer in line, flashing an all access badge and sauntering into the theater. Understandably, Non-PFS members are limited to 4 tickets to this mini-festival. I envision it being a scramble to get online early enough on Mon 3/26, to order tickets to the films I really want to see. Of course, if I get shut out for pre-ordering, there's always the ignominious rush line.


I'm most looking forward to seeing The Joneses with Demi Moore and David Duchovny only I wish it was screening earlier than 10pm (4/10)!

A seemingly perfect couple (Moore and Duchovny) move into an upscale gated community with their equally perfect teenagers (Heard and Hollingsworth). The Joneses have better goods and game than any other family in town. The only problem is they're not a family -- they are employees of a stealth marketing organization, and they know how to make everyone else want what they've got.


There is great variety among the 11 films chosen; and I of course will do my best to see as many as possible and report back, so stay tuned!


Friday, April 9th 5pm I Am Love - A tragic love story set at the turn of the millennium in Milan. The film follows the fall of the haute bourgeoisie due to the forces of passion and unconditional love.

Friday, April 9th 7:30pm Looking for Eric Eric, a football fanatic postman whose life is descending in to crisis, receives some life coaching from the famously philosophical Eric Cantona.

Friday, April 9th 9:45pm The Square Escaping the monotony of a loveless marriage, Raymond Yale becomes entangled in an affair with the beautiful and troubled Carla. Ray's moral limits are tested when Carla presents him with the proceeds of her controlling husband's latest crime. This is their chance: Take the money and run... If only it were that simple.

Saturday, April 10th 1pm Exit Through The Gift Shop (Added encore performance) The story of how an eccentric French shop keeper and amateur film maker attempted to locate and befriend Banksy, only to have the artist turn the camera back on its owner with spectacular results.

Saturday, April 10th 3pm Tales From The Golden Age On the occasion of Ceausescu's working visits, countryside mayors ended up hanging fruit in trees to make sure their villages would be noticed, obeying even the strangest orders from the ferocious Party activists.

Saturday, April 10th 5:30pm Gasland It is happening all across America-rural landowners wake up one day to find a lucrative offer from an energy company wanting to lease their property. Reason? The company hopes to tap into a reservoir dubbed the "Saudi Arabia of natural gas." Halliburton developed a way to get the gas out of the ground-a hydraulic drilling process called "fracking"-and suddenly America finds itself on the precipice of becoming an energy superpower.

Saturday, April 10th 8pm Holy Rollers In Brooklyn, a youth from an Orthodox Jewish community is lured into becoming an Ecstasy dealer by his pal who has ties to an Israel drug cartel.

Saturday, April 10th 8pm Cocktails at Mission Grill 1835 Arch Street from 10-1am - special drink prices when you show your ticket at the door.

Sunday, April 11th 3pm His & Hers A documentary which chronicles a ninety-year-old love story, through the collective voice of seventy ladies.

Sunday, April 11th 5pm The Good, The Bad The Weird Set in the 1930s Manchurian desert, where lawlessness rules and ethnic groups clash, three Korean men fatefully meet each other on a train. The Good, Do-won (JUNG Woo-sung) is a bounty hunter who tracks down criminals with rewards on their heads. The Bad, Chang-yi (LEE Byung-hun) is the leader of a group of bandits and can't stand to be second best. The Weird, Tae-goo (SONG Kang-ho) is a train robber with nine lives.

Sunday, April 11th 7:45pm No Crossover: The Trial of Allen Iverson Trailer On Valentine’s Day 1993, 17-year-old Bethel High School basketball star Allen Iverson was bowling in Hampton, Va., with five high school friends. It was supposed to be an ordinary evening, but it became a night that defined Iverson’s young life. A quarrel soon erupted into a brawl pitting Iverson’s young black friends against a group of white patrons. The fallout from the fight and the handling of the subsequent trial landed the teenager—considered by some the nation’s best high school athlete—in jail and sharply divided the city along racial lines.

Sunday, April 11th 9:45pm Harry Brown Set in England, An elderly ex-serviceman and widower looks to avenge his best friend’s murder by doling out his own form of justice.

Emerging Cinema: VOICELESS The Movie

  Highlighting Philly Made Film - "Voiceless"  by Le Anne Lindsay, Tinsel & Tine Editor The Philadelphia Independent Fil...

Food n Film: BURNT

Food n Film: BURNT
Bradley Cooper has more than charisma, he has an over abundance of Chi, which radiates out from him; so for me, this role as temperamental and damaged chef Adam Jones, who also inspires great love and admiration from those around him, works on the level of characterization. In fact, I think he's among a very short list of actors who would be able to pull off being so self-involved and yet likable. Doesn't hurt that he really speaks French too! READ POST

Food n Film: CHEF

Food n Film: CHEF
Much of the movie centers around the father/son relationship, and how much they learn from each other. But the real star of the film is all the food preparation, every other scene made me groan with want of everything up on that screen! Particularly the perfectly roasted and rubbed brisket, the crispy fat of the pork belly, sizzling bacon and the much ballyhooed Chocolate Lava Cake. READ POST

Food n Film: CHOCOLAT
If you’re a foodie movie lover who saw Lasse Hallström’s The Hundred Foot Journey (see T&T post), this summer you may be wondering what delicious visual journey might be awaiting you in the theater next. Well, how about a look back at his film Chocolat (2000), which stars French actress Juliette Binoche, Judi Dench and Johnny Depp. Hallström’s has a special talent for turning cooking into a dramatic movie journey...READ MORE

Food n Film: THE HUNDRED FOOT JOURNEY

...young Hassan, a soulful-eyed boy with lush, thick eye lashes, places his face into the sea urchin basket, and breathes in the exotic briny scent. He sticks his fingers into the aquatic ooze, takes it to his mouth and is transfixed by the taste. The vendor, oblivious to the thrusting arms of frenzied women, notices the boy and realizes he is the only one worthy of this oceanic prize; he is the one who can “truly taste.” ... READ MORE

Food n Film: JULIE & JULIA
Personally, I like the unevenness of it, because I fell in love with the post World War II, Parisian sights, sounds, food and romance between Julia and Paul. I always felt a bit jarred back into reality when the scenes returned to Julie's meltdowns and cramped kitchen.READ POST

Food n Film: EAT PRAY LOVE

Food n Film: EAT PRAY LOVE
Six months into my 38th year of this life, I had my first panic attack. I didn't know that's what it was until months later. Symptom after symptom starting piling up on me until there were days I could no longer move my arms or neck. The doctors told me I was suffering from an auto-immune condition that they felt was most likely Lupus. And so began my much deeper journey and exploration into the world of spirit, alternative medicine, yoga, meditation and Eat, Pray, Love. READ POST

Will there ever be a cap on movie prices?

Will we one day pay $20 a pop?

Why don't we pay on a scale?

A crap movie like everything Adam Sandler has ever done should cost about $4.50.
Big action movies like"Lord of the Rings", "Iron Man," "Transformers" are worth $10.
Woody Allen movie or something like "Silver Linings Playbook" $6-$7.
A chick flick or light comedy $5.75 and most Indie Films $5.25.

You could even do it by seasons - all summer block busters from May to August - $10
Sept - November 15th $3.50 - $4
Back to $10 for Thanksgiving and Christmas etc...

Or you can do it by A Actors ($9 - $10), B Actors ($6 - $7) TV actors on the big screen ($3.50 - $4)

Surely I'm not the first person to realize this makes sense. Has it been voted on in the Motion Picture Industry and then vetoed? If so, why?
