I am lucky to be able to see many films, and talk to filmmakers and festival goers. On my blog page you can find many entries under the category of cinema. Among my ezine articles, you can find even more. I love to write about the cinema. Here are some of the articles that I feel work best and are most informative.

Il Divo. Giulio Andreotti’s battle for power becomes a cinematic spectacle.
A review of the innovative and unique 2008 film about one of the most enigmatic and iconic Italian political figures of the past 50 years.


Sorrentino & Servillo in Paris for Il Divo and L’Uomo in Più. This article looks at the collaboration of these two men, in these two films, the newly released Il Divo, and the excellent and lesser known film from 2001, L’Uomo in Più.

Takeshi Kitano Honored at 2008 Thessaloniki Film Festival.

This article on the Oh My News website, is a review of Kitano’s 2008 film Achilles and the Tortoise. The film, which is autobiographical in a symbolic way, is a very intriguing look at the journey of an artist with little talent, but a great love for inspiration.
