Real Talkies

Every cut is a lie. It’s never that way. Those two shots were never next to each other in time that way. But you’re telling a lie in order to tell the truth. –Wolf Koenig.

CATFISH – Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost

SYNOPSIS: The vague synopsis explains that filmmakers Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost began to document an online relationship that was developing between Ariel’s brother Nev and a girl that he met on the internet. They eventually decided to take a road trip from New York to rural Michigan to meet her, at which point they discovered something that was both “shocking” and “unsettling”.

It is rumored that it will be most controversial film of “2010” as it exposes the grim reality of our virtual world. For the record, it is a reality thriller not documentary.

In select theaters on September 24th

WAITING FOR SUPERMAN – DAVIS GUGGENHEIM (director of an inconvenient truth)


When disaster strikes in America, heroes rush in. We’ve seen it time and again: when all seems lost, real-life supermen (and women) step up to save the day. But what if, right now, there is a hidden catastrophe spreading quietly, insidiously through our nation’s cities, towns, and communities – and yet we have the power to stop it? What if our children and their futures – were in  peril? Who will become a hero now?

I saw this film at Silver Docs. This film presents a deeply disturbing image of the state of education in America and partly blames the teacher union but mostly blames inefficient teacher for its perils. Must admit this film is not dull and boring like inconvenient truth but tends to be preachy at times. It gets very emotional toward the end and is heart breaking to watch kids and their parents wait for a lottery ticket to better education.
