Film Review: “Understanding Movies” - Cleverly gives the finger to the rules of filmmaking

understanding-movies-korean-short-film-image-3

Review by: Mut Asheru

UNDERSTANDING MOVIES is an entertaining short film directed by Yim Ji-eun that comically points out how the business and art of filmmaking can step on each other’s toes much to the detriment of the end product. It demonstrates what can happen when so called “experts and their lauded rules get involved” in the creative process when the original vision isn’t honored.

Film Review: “Shuttlecock” - An indie Korean film that we liked

shuttlecock-korean-movie-posterReview by: Mut Asheru

Others have referred to this film as a “road-trip” movie. But it’s not. SHUTTLECOCK (셔틀콕) directed by Lee Yu-bin (이유빈) tells the story of 3step-siblings who have to find a way to live with and take care of each other after their parents deaths.

Shuttlecock is a badminton term used for the ball that is hit between the opposing opponent’s racquets. Knowing that (after a visit…

Film Review: “The One I Love” - With Elizabeth Moss and Mark Duplass is full of originality and wit

Film Review: “The One I Love” – With Elizabeth Moss and Mark Duplass is full of originality and wit

The-One-I-Love-posterFilm Review by: Gordon K Smith

After a slew of gargantuan summer action epics (some I liked, others I didn’t), here’s a little movie made with just a few actors and locations in a couple of weeks, that has more originality and wit than any of those epics, and it says more about what makes love work, or not, than the last ten star-driven rom-coms. It’s THE ONE I LOVE.

Elizabeth Moss, that…

Movie Review: “Are You Here” - Does Matthew Weiner’s storytelling gifts translate well to the big screen?

Movie Review: “Are You Here” – Does Matthew Weiner’s storytelling gifts translate well to the big screen?

Are_You_Here_posterFilm review by: Gordon K. Smith

I had high expectations for ARE YOU HERE, the feature film debut for writer/director Matthew Weiner, the creator of Mad Men.   I love Mad Men, and revere that there’s at least one cable series that finds drama in character detail and dialog instead of gratuitous flesh/gore and guns in faces (an image that is becoming much too ubiquitous).   Surely Weiner’s…

Book Review: Malcolm Little: The Boy Who Grew Up to Become Malcolm X by Ilyasah Shabazz

Book Review: Malcolm Little: The Boy Who Grew Up to Become Malcolm X by Ilyasah Shabazz

Malcolm Little book cover

Book Review by: Melody Charles

When it comes to the life and legacy of Malcolm X, fiction seem to loom larger than fact. Love him or loathe him, his intentions and accomplishments as an iconic nationalist Muslim leader have become lost in misconceptions and media propaganda, an injustice that his third-born daughter, best-selling author Ilyasah Shabazz, wants to correct with Malcolm Little: The…
