A propósito de Buenos Aires #

Released 3/1/2006

Description: Eleven young film-makers got together to collaborate in this atypical project. Atypical not only because of its technical specs, but because of its narrative structure. There are few scenes with only the town in common, and more as a conceptual presence at that than as a precise geography. None of those scenes includes a single "story": Every one of them is part of a larger case that we cannot see, as though the beginning and end of every "story" had to be filled in by the audience.

Tokasikajuttu #

Released 10/13/2017

Description: In December 2016 a remarkable chapter in melody history was closed as the Finnish punk rock band Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät (PKN) retired. Punk Voyage is a detail length documentary movie about the last years of the band, with all the ups and downs included. After becoming celebrities in Finland, this wonderful quartet continued to defeat fresh fanatics around the World. In its seven years run PKN played nearly 300 gigs in 16 countries. In 2015 the band was chosen to represent Finland in the Eurovision Song Contest, where they played to over 100 million tv spectators. However, the busy traveling and success created a lot of pressure within the band: Kari struggled with the temptations and responsibilities brought by publicity; Sami extended his zone to politics and religion; Toni's and the band's roadie Niila's crush to the the same woman caused conflicts; and Pertti, tired of this all, decided to retire.

The Trials of Alger Hiss Reviews:

This film is a paean of praise to Alger Hiss – a distinguished lawyer, diplomat, and foundation head, a symbol of the Fresh Deal and American Establishment. In 1950 Hiss was convicted of perjury for denying that he had spied for the Soviet Union in 1937 and 1938. The conviction destroyed his life and proved that there were traitors high in our government. Despite appeals that ended only in 1983, Hiss failed to convince a single judge who ruled on the merits that there was anything wrong with his conviction or the process by which it was reached.Hiss's main accuser was a boy called Whittaker Chambers. He ran the spy ring in which Hiss labored. Chambers produced 4 pages of confidential State Department documents in Hiss's handwriting, 64 more spy papers typed on Hiss's home typewriter, and movies of more documents (from Hiss and others). At the very beginning of the scandal, almost the only boy who believed Chambers was a freshman Representative, Richard Nixon. This scandal made him famous. The Establishment, liberals especially, never forgave Nixon or Chambers for exposing their soft underbelly – their weakness at pursuing Soviet spies.The movie appears to have been made in the late 1970s, when Hiss should have hoped for vindication after Nixon's disgrace and revelations of FBI misconduct. It lasts almost three hours – not for the faint of heart. One wonders who financed this very professional effort, which included much travel to interview many folks involved in the CaseThe movie consists in huge part of newsreels from 1948-50 and interviews in the 70s with witnesses, lawyers, jurors, journalists who covered the House hearings and trials in which the drama unfolded, and another secondary figures in the Case. The interviews capture the words and body language of these minor users before they died and, as such, are valuable historical records. The filmmaker, to his credit, included a several folks who are unfavorable to Hiss. I do want the movie had included two major Hiss lawyers, William Marbury of Piper & Marbury and Edward McLean of Debevoise, Plimpton & McLean. Both concluded that Hiss was lying.The biggest single component of the movie, however, is Hiss speaking to credulous college students and a sympathetic interviewer. He takes the viewer meticulously through his defense and allegations of government misconduct. Hiss comes across at first as smart, precise, polite, and believable. At times, he can be quite charming, a grown up Mama's boy. After a while, however, he is so dry and unemotional that you receive lost in his maze of feature and have to war off sleep. Hiss loses not only the viewer's attention, but also credibility, as he attempts to justify his chameleon-like changes of storyline in 1948-50 and spins out conspiracy theories of how someone (Chambers, the FBI, Nixon) made a fake typewriter that typed just like Hiss's typewriter. Of the spy documents in his own handwriting, Hiss tells simply "How Chambers got them I still don't know." The obvious explanation, of course, is that Hiss gave them to Chambers in the spy ring. In the end, Hiss brings to mind the hero Eddie Haskell in Leave It To Beaver.The movie is rough on Chambers. It presents him simply as a grotesque and possibly insane. Chambers, in fact, was Senior Editor of Time Magazine, a respected translator of French and German literature into English, and mates with (or admired by) many of the leading public intellectuals of mid-20th Century America. He did not wish to testify. He had no motive to lie. When he revealed his spying, he lost his job at Time, the only decent and decently paying job he ever had.In the film, jurors and one Representative are presented with material that did not come out at the trials and that favors Hiss. They acknowledge that it might have swayed them towards Hiss. Most memorable among these papers is Chambers' handwritten admission to the FBI that he had engaged in gay sex. Hiss wishes he had been able to smear Chambers as a 'pervert.'The movie omits, however, facts that did not come out at the trials and that showed Hiss to be the liar and Chambers the truth-teller. Nor does the movie mention the definitive ebook on the Case, Allen Weinstein's "Perjury." Published about the time the movie was made, it examined for the first time Hiss's defense files and tens of thousands of pages of government documents. It concluded that Hiss was guilty.The film, and especially the lengthy footage of Hiss, drew me back to the nice lingering mystery of the Situation – what was he thinking all those years? How and when did he become a communist and, later, a traitor? After his conviction and imprisonment, why didn't he just lay weak and begin a fresh career? Why did he lie so publicly and for so long? Had he convinced himself that he was innocent? Was he a die-hard communist operative? Or did he think he might receive away with it if he kept bluffing?I want that the Hiss supporters in this movie should be confronted with the incriminating files of the Hiss defense and the Czech, Hungarian, and Soviet spy agencies. The latter papers present not only that Chambers was the truthful one about what happened in the 30s, but indicate that Hiss continued spying for the Soviets through the end of Globe Fight II. Hiss's old supporters would, I am sure, actually consider him guilty. More interesting is whether they would ask themselves how they, allegedly smart people, should have been fooled.It's scary to think that this movie might have become the agreed truth had it not been for the ebook Perjury and the revelations from secret communist government files. Today, the movie shows us a nice con artist at the top of his form and the credulous folk who fell for his con.
