threebillboards

With  an obscure and intriguing  tittle like “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri “, directed by Martin McDonagh and with such stellar and quirky cast this is the type of film that truly inspires our curiosity… poised from the start to be an awards-season steamroller… It boasts a bevy of strong performances led by Frances McDormand, Sam Rockwell, and Woody Harrelson, and a sensational screenplay by McDonagh, who can turn profanity-laced insults into high art...Three Billboards is a film about a woman fed up with the world’s injustice in general and her own town’s specifically…something to see, think and discuss …

Monday August 29TH, 2016 ******* “My Architect: A Son’s Journey” ***** directed by Nathaniel Kahn – cast Nathaniel Kahn, Frank Gehry, I.M. Pai, Philip Johnson, B.V. Doshi

Continuing in our theme of sons making films about their father, in an effort to know them better, we present My Architect: A Son’s Journey. This film is about architect Louis Kahn, and it was produced by his son, the one that he never knew… from a family that Kahn had kept a secret…Sounds complicated ??…well, i guess it is…and that’s also one of the things that the Cinematiki seems to be  all about; to see, to feel,to experience and aftewards to share openly and  express whatever lurks in us and somehow it’s stirred by those images…

or something like that…what do you think ?

MONDAY, 03/04/2013 — “WHEN FATHER WAS AWAY ON BUSINESS” (1985), directed by Emir Kusturica — EASTERN EUROPEAN SERIES

The Yugoslavian When Father Was Away on Business (Otac na Sluzbenoh Putu) takes place in the early 1950s. The title is a euphemism: because of the strained relationship between Yugoslavia and the USSR, various private citizens have disappeared in the middle of the night, accompanied by the police. A delightfully warm comedy, seen through the eyes of a six year old boy who thinks his father is away on business, when in actuality he’s been sent to the mines for having an affair. Nominated for the 1985 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
