Dreams Of A Life Review


Excellent
This beautifully assembled exploration of the life of a Londoner is hauntingly, desperately sad as it reveals a person so isolated that she fell through the cracks. The filmmaking is skilful and powerfully moving, even if it feels more like a TV doc than a feature film.

In 2006, Joyce Vincent was found dead in her North London flat with her television still on and newly wrapped Christmas presents around her. She had been dead for three years. But who was she? Why didn't her family report her missing? How could someone just disappear like that? There was no way to determine the cause of death, because the body was so badly decomposed, although the police ruled out suspicious circumstances.

All My Children Star Mitchell Dead At 89


James Mitchell

American soap star James Mitchell has died following complications from pneumonia.

The actor, who became known for his role as ruthless tycoon Palmer Cortland on longrunning U.S. TV series All My Children, passed away at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Friday (22Jan10) at the age of 89.

His partner Albert Wolsky confirms Mitchell had been suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease for years and was recently hospitalised after experiencing problems when he was struck down with pneumonia.

Mitchell joined the popular soap opera in 1979 and stepped down as a series regular in 2008. However, he returned to the small screen earlier this month (Jan10) to help the cast and crew celebrate its 40th anniversary episode.

St. Ives Review


Good
Take one Merchant-Ivory flick and stir in about 20 pounds of marshmallow crème -- and you've got St. Ives.

Pronounced "sahn TEEVE," the film is based on a Robert Louis Stevenson tale about a Napoleonic Era French captain named Jacques St. Ives (Jean-Marc Barr) who is captured by the British during the war, sent to P.O.W. camp in Scotland, and falls in love along the way, of course. The object of his affection is a local girl (the forgettable Anna Friel), who lives under the protection of her mother (Miranda Richardson), a woman who is having a dalliance with the stiff prison camp boss (Richard E. Grant), who is oddly enough receiving lessons in the ways of love from our very own, very Frahnch St. Ives.

Invincible (2001) Review


OK
Admittedly, Invincible is not one of Herzog's crowning achievements. It is not an epic testament to the limits of human (and occasionally, cinematic) experience, as his masterpieces tend to. That said, this might not be an appropriate introduction to the man behind such difficult (I guess that would be the word) achievements as Every Man for Himself and God Against All, Aguirre, the Wrath of God, and Fitzcarraldo. However, Invincible is Herzog's first film in 18 years to be released theatrically and his first return to the Nazi era in almost twice as many years -- since his debut with Signs of Life (1968). Which begs the question: has Herzog lost his edge?

Based on a true story, Invincible chronicles Zishe Breitbart's (Jouka Ahola) journey from a young, Jewish blacksmith of great strength to the renowned "strongest man in the world" in a Berlin nightclub just before the Nazis come to power. Zishe gets his start after he beats the strongman in the circus and an agent offers to find him work in Berlin as strongman. Initially resistant, Zishe ventures to Berlin on the belief that God has something in mind for him, leaving behind his family, including his favorite brother Benjamin (Jacob Wein), the most intelligent nine-year-old his East Poland town has ever seen. In Berlin, Zishe gets a position immediately in a nightclub run by a con man -- clairvoyant Erik Jan Hanussen (Tim Roth) -- playing the historic German hero Siegfried in the club's variety show. At first, Zishe is too overwhelmed and intimidated to see the what is happening to the Jews (then again, who wasn't?), but, after Zishe's mother and brother Benjamin come for a visit, Zishe reveals himself as a Polish Jew to a room full of Nazis and the precarious balance is tipped.

Jacket Workers' Worry At Kkk Extra


Adrien Brody The Jacket James Mitchell Kris Kristofferson

Set insiders on Adrien Brody's new movie The Jacket have expressed their concern a KU KLUX CLAN member was allowed to appear in the film - even though he was open about his sick past.

James Mitchell appears as an inmate in a mental asylum in the movie after appearing at open castings - and was allowed to star alongside Brody, who is part-Jewish, even though he was open about his past as a racist, thief and drug dealer, according to Scottish newspaper THE DAILY RECORD.

One set insider says, "If this is not a security risk, I don't know what is. The staff were not to know what this guy when they hired him. But it seems foolhardy in the least to have kept him around when they found out.
