Quote:
La Ricotta (starring Orson Welles) represents a key moment in Pasolini’s career. This complex work marks a stylistic advance over his earlier films and with it, Pasolini comes of age as a man of the cinema. Although La Ricotta is an outcry against the betrayal of religion, it was perceived as blasphemous by the right-wing homophobic political enemies of Pasolini. He was put on trial and charged with “insulting the religion of the state,” a Fascist law that was still on the books. Pasolini was sentenced to four months in prison, eventually amnestied, and all of RoGoPaG was banned. La Ricotta is a dazzling amalgam of trenchant social satire, neo-realism, pathos, and burlesque comedy by the man Susan Sontag has called “indisputably the most remarkable figure to have emerged in Italian arts and letters since the Second World War.” Continue reading

Synopsis:

Histoire d’eaux (Bernardo Bertolucci) – A whimsical, cross-cultural melding of east meets west romantic comedy presented in highly fractured (if unremarkable) ellipses that chronicle the couple’s chance encounter, marriage, extramarital temptation, and bizarre separation.

About Time 2 (Mike Figgis) – Multichannel split screening in the vein of Timecode, sometimes converging towards the encounter, other times intersecting temporal planes between childhood and adulthood, life and death. At each transection, the incompleteness of connection, the failure of intimacy, the painful awareness of intranscendable distance.

One Moment (Jirí Menzel) – Poetic, affectionate, lyrical, and elegy for actor Rudolf Hrusinsky composed of a wordless montage of slowed film footage spanning Hrusinsky’s entire career that embodies the human experience: toil, rest, education, romantic love, rejection, desire, aging, frailty. A recurring interstitial black screen with the words “ten minutes” becomes a constant reinforcement of transience, a career and life distilled to the precious few minutes of the film, a reflection of its brevity.

Ten Minutes Older – The Trumpet (Germany/UK)
CANNES — The concept is both intriguing and simple. With the promise of complete creative freedom, a lineup of the world’s leading directors are given the same assignment: Make a film dealing with the theme of time in their own inimitable fashions, with the ego-curbing catch being that they have only 10 minutes with which to work.

While the results are predictably mixed, most manage to rise to the occasion, with Spike Lee, Spain’s Victor Erice and Chinese director Chen Kaige doing particularly impressive stuff. Continue reading

Three words. Just three words, and perhaps most important in the world have become the dumbest, even to say them disgusting. “I love you” – shit… They have been meaning nothing, but serve only a cover for, you know, all kind of dirty tricks. Well, how many chicks were fucked and left in the morning? How many apartments and estates were swindled under the guises of these three words. “I love you, honey. All night just thinking about you, darling. Yak, fuck! Actually, ‘I love you’ is the most common phrase people are lying with. And all of the songs about all of this, 95% exactly. As if there are no other themes to find, I don’t know… Always the same. I love you, I love you, I love youuu.
