Who Is Bernard Tapie? #

Politicians, athletes, friends, companions, and journalists comment on Bernard's charm, his rise to prominence in sports and politics, and his subsequent problem with the law.

Time in the Sun #

Released 1/1/1940

Description: Second attempt to make a detail movie out of the 200,000-plus feet of movie which Soviet film-maker Sergei Eisenstein shot during 1931-32 in Mexico for American socialist creator Upton Sinclair, his wife and a tiny company of investors. The projected film, to be named "Que Viva Mexico", was never finished due to exhaustion of funds and Stalin's demand that Eisenstein return to the USSR (he had been absent since 1929). The first attempt at editing the footage, in the USA, resulted in "Thunder Over Mexico", released in 1934. In 1940, Marie Seton, from the UK, acquired some of the footage from the Sinclairs in an attempt to create a better cutting according to Eisenstein's skeletal outline for the proposed film. This movie has apparently been lost.

Volcanoes of the Deep Sea Reviews:

We went to the Fresh Jersey Liberty Science Center on Thursday for the premiere of the Imax film, Volcanoes of the Deep Sea, a production conceived by Rich Lutz, a Rutgers University marine biologist. For more than a decade, Dr. Lutz has been working thousands of feet under the ocean, studying life unexpectedly discovered in the late 1970s, down in the deepest abysses of the ocean. These hitherto unknown life forms are growing in the most poisonous atmosphere in the world, the zone around hypothermal vents--the volcanoes of the deep sea. Scientists actually trust that these life forms keep the secret of the origins of life on earth. The scenery is awe-inspiring, never before seen by anyone as it is in the film, since even the researchers have never before been able to flood territories the size of a football field with intense illumination, as director Stephen Low's team did for the film, by attaching lights to the deep sea explorer Alvin. Animations of the current volcanic explosions were so nice and so well integrated into the movie that it was difficult to say if they were true or not. The deep sea monsters themselves are as marvelously bizarre in their appearance as they are in their biology. This is the most impressive, spectacular, absolutely wonderful Imax movie I've ever seen. Forget The Matrix and Slay Bill. Volcanoes of the Deep Sea is the most thrilling movie ever made.


This was the worst IMAX film I have seen to date. The script was fragmented and didn't totally explain much about the things we were witnessing. I expected to see a present about volcanoes and got a present about hot water organisms which was never totally explained or explored. The topics matter was broad and superficial, with a fully unnecessary glossing of the large bang theory and the formation of the universe. I admit the current footage of the underwater structures/creatures was amazing, but those shots were spliced with animated/fictional segments which were not introduced as being fake and would mislead or confuse most people. All the nice shots were repeatedly obscured by the faces of the explores being superimposed on a porthole so that we should share in the expression of their poorly acted surprise. When I see an IMAX I expect a tightly focused exploration of a unique subject and a minimal test of fake graphics, and this one didn't have either. Save your money.


"Volcanoes of the Deep Sea" is an American IMAX documentary from almost 15 years ago and even if director and writer Stephen Weak (co-wrote it with his brother(?) Alex) is fairly experience in terms of documentary filmmaking, the star here is clearly producer James Cameron. And maybe to a lesser extent narrator Ed Harris. Well, the subject is already in the title, but I cannot tell I was well-entertained really. I don't have the largest interest in the subject, but I still felt that this documentary was too dry (no pun intended) and too scientific for the most part. There were certainly some interesting sequences, for example about shrimps burning off their extremities on the hot rocks in order to eat, but it really wasn't enough, not even for such a short movie of only 40 minutes, as usual for IMAX. The ending was also kinda great with a more private approach to the protagonist (and his marriage) but it should not save everything before that. Quite a shame as I usually like nature documentaries and I also like Ed Harris, but this is certainly among the weaker IMAX items I have seen. Sadly, Cameron is often style over substance and not a nice story-teller and this is other example. Not recommended.
