Description: Paul Henreid, perhaps most popular for his roles in CASABLANCA and NOW, VOYAGER became a star at Warner Brothers during Globe Fight II, as the exotic lead with the European accent. After the war, his contract was cancelled and he was left to his own devices. He continued acting and also began producing and directing. In his choices, both as actor and director, his work evinces an increasing bitterness and cynicism. A private statement? Or a effect of the unceasing political shifts of the times?

Description: A sampling of forty-nine fragments from Frampton's catalogue of 'actualities', the movies from STRAITS OF MAGELLAN; DRAFTS AND FRAGMENTS, are all silent and unedited. Few invoke, directly, the work of the Lumieres, as in Frampton's reworking of DEMOLITION D'UN MUR (1895) in which a dilapidated farm silo is demolished in zone of the Lumieres' wall. He makes reference to his own work and plays homage to the work of contemporaries. A complex range of formal problems are raised in another fragments. Finally, Frampton offers a number of analogues for the act of filming and cinematic seeing that contains a series of appropriated 'lenses' ( a stone portal, a wooden silo) and a set of 'screens' a pool of water, curtains, a dusty window).

Experience the 20 wins of Josh Beckett, the record-breaking RBI season of Mike Lowell, the Rookie-of-the-Year performance of Dustin Pedroia, the excitement and promise of Jacoby Ellsbury and Clay Buchholz, and the 'lights out' domination of Jonathan Papelbon.

The Death Train #

Released 11/8/1998

Description: Producer and Emmy-winning director Tom Roberts (“Mother Russia’s Children”) recounts the horrors of Joseph Stalin’s infamous plan to build a railroad in the Arctic like a masterfully said ghost story, finished with eerie movie footage and chilling interviews with a several who lived through the experience. More artful than a Ken Burns-style documentary, this compelling but emotionally draining storyline is sure to draw praise for its historical value. Ultimately, however, its unrelenting bleakness dulls some of its impact.

The Medici: Godfathers of the Renaissance Reviews:

The Medici family dynasty ruled one tiny corner of Italy for over two centuries. How it came to define the course of western civilization is a storyline of immense complexity, and this series attempts to say it in daily language.The production can't seem to create up its mind whether to be a history lesson or a well-told story, and that is both its strength and its weakness. Fortunately the characters in the storyline are of such overwhelming interest that it doesn't really matter which approach the production takes, the student of history will search here a treasure trove.Any given fifteen-minute segment of the production should easy be produced as its own freestanding film, and this is as much a comment on the potency of this family and community as it is on the movie that has been created to describe it. I found it all spellbinding, and am heading actually to my public library to follow up with my own reading. That's a cute nice suggestion for a movie of modest production values.


For those interested in documentaries, history and art - specifically about the Renaissance, but without being a scholar in the subject, perhaps even if you are not sure what the Renaissance was all about, where Florence is, and with no knowledge about the House of Medici, then this documentary have a lot to teach, and could give a taste for further studies. For those that already know a lot about this topics will perhaps not be totally satisfied, as the another - more critical - reviews here have pointed out, but still I just can't imagine anyone that should regret watching it.Even with 4 parts and 4 hours, it's not even barely scratching the surface of this complex story, but still manage to compress it into an nice storyline of both the rise of the Medici dynasty (lasting almost a half millennium), the Renaissance and a mind boggling amount of the most well known and beloved artists of the era and how these appeared in the same time-period and place, in a climate of intense creativity and enlightenment, becoming the begin of the end of the middle-ages.Specially the soundtrack is beautiful, but sadly the composer sold the rights to the company that made the movie (that went bankrupt), so any CD or related of the melody won't be likely to ever be published.


This present is cute entertaining with many nice actors and the history based tale is beautifully filmed. Now...after telling all of that I gotta tell that this series is also quite soap opera-like. The jumping from one thing to the next makes you feel as if they are making it up as they go along. The stories said about murder and intrigue seem a bit shallow and predictable. Its quite ironic that a several of the actors were in Minigame Of Thrones, the series that sparked this fresh interest in dramatic 16th century time pieces. The payoff of season one seemed a bit far fetched as well. I watched it on Netflix and grew tired of the up and down nature of the series. Not sure if I will watch season two because it looks like the writers are barely holding us with daytime soap opera tricks.
