Description: Just a couple of months before his death, in August 1963, he made one last film: a 25-minute short entitled Jean Cocteau s’adresse à l’an 2000 (Cocteau addresses the year 2000). The movie comprises one still and highly sober shot of Cocteau facing the camera head-on to address the youth of the future. Once recorded, this spoken message for the 21st century was wrapped up, sealed and posted on the understanding that it would be opened only in the year 2000 (as it turned out, it was discovered and exhumed a several years shy of that date). If in The Testament Cocteau portrays himself as a living anachronism, a lonesome classical modernist loitering in space-time in the same buckskin jacket and tie while lost in the spectral light of his memories, here he acknowledges explicitly the irony of his phantom-like state: by the time the viewer sees this image, he, J. C., our saviour Poet, will long be dead.

Description: A fast-paced, feature-length documentary which goes beyond the tinselly glamour of Bollywood to expose the industry's rather less alluring underbelly. The Mumbai movie industry has long been rumoured to be associated with crime syndicates. The connection was publicly established when, in July 2007, one of India's superstars, Sanjay Dutt, was convicted of possessing firearms which were linked to India's 9/11 - the day in 1993 when Mumbai suffered 13 terrorist bomb blasts in the zone of two hours. As full of sudden reversals as any thriller, this documentary follows Sanjay Dutt as he makes Shootout In Lokhandwala, his last movie before being sentenced. He plays a real-life Mumbai police officer, AA Khan, who became a local character after a fatal shootout with criminals in which 1,400 rounds of ammunition were fired. The documentary subtly underlines the ironies of this case and has as colorful a cast of its own as any Bollywood movie. (Storyville)

The building website is like a theatre in which the former inhabitants, the neighbours, the workers, the builder and the fresh owner all appear. Israeli tv censured the film. "Gitai wants this house to be both a symbol and something very concrete; he wants it to become a hero in a film. He achieves one of the most pretty things a camera can register 'live', as it were; folks who look at the same thing but see various things - and who are moved by that vision. In this crumbling shell of a house, true hallucinations start to take shape. The film's central concept is easy and the movie has simply the force of that idea, no more, no less."

In the movie Hoops Africa: Ubuntu Matters, I appreciated how many various territories and groups of folks were used and interviewed. The movie opened by giving background on many of the organizations featured such as Hoops 4 Hope, the Boston Celtics, the NBA, and another affiliated groups. After introducing every of the organizations individually, throughout the movie connections between them were made and a bigger picture was created. The movie did a nice job of focusing on the community outreach aspect of Hoops 4 Hope and the NBA tools rather than the technical aspect, although there still was still a clear technical aspect show based on the footage of the former and actual NBA users coaching as well as the path through which the Celtics took to victory the NBA championship, which made it easier for the viewers who were less knowledgeable about basketball ideas to understand the film. The idea of Ubuntu, which very several folks had heard of, was very well contextualized both in Africa through Hoops 4 Hope as well as in the United States with the Celtics and viewers should see the impact that Ubuntu can have on people's live. Overall, the movie was very engaging and enjoyable.
"Hoops Africa" was definitely worth the watch. The movie has intriguing basketball users who connect with audience. It's a nice movie 10/10 suggest and you will definitely learn squad and sportsmanship from it.
The movie was very good. It introduced me into a entire various meaning of basketball and how it can really impact lives and communities. The philosophy Ubuntu is something that can impact your everyday life in a lot of ways.
