I don’t know about you but Linked-In has turned into one of the least useful interwebbery enterprises into whose bog I volunteered to submerge. But just today its cheerful mindless robot has alerted me that my actual friend D.C. Cardinali got a job at Atlanta Kodak. The South rises every day but today the celluloid acetate hosted silver shimmering bright minds of Rochester New York do too. Thanks, Linked-In, at last modestly useful. https://atlanta.curbed.com/2016/10/17/13306482/midtown-atlanta-iconic-kodak-building-reborn

Present Cinema: The Telluride Film Festival premiere of MEN: A LOVE STORY


MEN: A LOVE STORY  from Northern California’s director Mimi Chakarova and editor Stephanie Mechura premieres.

It’s a road movie filmed by women looking for a redemptive side of men by coaxing them to tell their love stories. The first ten minute preview I saw convinced me I wanted to take the assignment: a reel of hard bit cowboys and oil rig worker who could model and an Oakland elder with a life force appetite as voracious as his twenty year old self.
The film has an original musical score performed by many, among them Nels Cline of Wilco and some of the subjects themselves who sing and play Americana roots music.
What do these men love: many of them love to cook and don’t come to the theater hungry unless you’re in an Alamo Drafthouse.
The American landscape and portrait cinematography by Stefania Rousselle and Mimi Chakarova is gorgeous.

New films from Clint Eastwood, Damien Chazelle and Denis Villeneuve are set for this year’s SHOW, commencing Friday.
