Berlinale 2020: All Change for Screening Venue

On its official website, with a new more minimalist design for its 70th edition with new festival directors, reads the tagline The Berlinale: A Constantly Evolving Festival. There is a certain irony in this comment given that the festival seems to have stagnated for at least the last six years as the 19-year tenure of Dieter […]

The Return of Stereolab: Reissues and Reunion Tour

The Return of Stereolab: Reissues and Reunion Tour

Some reunions are ultimately a bad idea. The lure of lucre or lame nostalgia can inspire knee-jerk criticisms but even those not guilty of such derision often fail in their attempts to recapture old glories, regardless of reception. However, there are other reunions which make the concept fully worthwhile. It’s another chance for those who […]

PJ Harvey: ‘A Dog Called Money’

PJ Harvey: ‘A Dog Called Money’

Despite her ever-changing persona, PJ Harvey has always given the impression of a rather shy and reluctant rock star, so it came as a surprise to learn of an intimate and personal multi-layered project that would take an inside look at her creative process. The resulting A Dog Called Money documentary, a UK-Ireland co-production, was […]

Dance Fight Love Die – With Mikis Theodorakis on the Road (2017)

There is currently a celebration of the life of Greek composer Mikis Theodorakis in Germany with a documentary film which is having screenings in selected cinemas. Being that both the composer and director have had big connections with Germany, it seemed the most appropriate or obvious place to celebrate his life and work outside of […]

68 Berlinale: Huppert excels in «Eva»

At the 2014 Berlinale, there was an excellent film called ’71 that was set during the Bloody Sunday Massacre in Northern Ireland in 1971. A compelling and often scary film, it was a worthy entry into the competition section. Back in 1996, the film Michael Collins was a biopic detailing what happened during the Easter […]
