NEWSLETTER Volume 5 JUNE 2007
FROM THE FOUNDERWe are living in the periodof digital age. I have cometo notice that millions of individuals are fascinatedwith Special Effects and arewilling to pay for anoverpriced admission for afilm that makes absolutelyno sense.Fifty years ago, cinemawas the talk of the town.Cary Grant and WilliamHolden were idolized asAmerica’s great actors andintroduced the concept of America’s fanatic perceptionof inspiring performances.American Cinema hasbeen producing financiallywell in distributing specialeffects, action, horror andcomedy films. However,that leaves drama andromance comedy filmsleft out because theycannot succeed in theAmerican box-officesystem.Movies are changingdramatically andinfluencing negative andpositive perspectives tothe audience.Movies areextraordinary and wehave come to enjoy theexperiences of movies.Remember have funthis summer and at themovies.

Actor of the MONTH
F. Murray Abraham
One word “Amadeus”.F. Murray Abraham wasstunning and delivered apowerful performance asWolfgang AmadeusMozart’s rival, AntonioSalieri.In 1781, Salieri is the courtcomposer to Emperor Jo-seph II of Austria, whenMozart arrives at court,Salieri is stunned to dis-cover that his will andpassion for music is be-stowed on a jokester. Sa-lieri is mad with envy andplots to destroy Mozart byany means, perhaps evenmurder.Amadeus was the motionpicture of the year in1984, capturing the cov-eted Best Picture andawarding a deserving Os-car for Best Actor to Abra-ham.Abraham learned how toplay the Piano, constructan orchestra, and directthe Sopranos for hisperformance as AntonioSalieri.
Winner of 3 Academy Awards
Pan’s Labyrinth
was not nearlyas complex as Narnia. Though itdid deliver fairies, Fauns andunusual creatures that were bothhorrifying, which paralleled theWorld War II Fascist take over inSpain.I can tell the cultural differencesbetween Spain and England bytheir ideas of how things shouldbe. Fairy’s tale wise.As far as being visually stunning,No, because of all theshooting and killing. TheLabyrinth itself is never viewedfrom above, so you are told whatit is.It was well acted and I was neverquiet sure if the Faun was forgood or evil. But he seemed to want to help. You can’t help butbelieve that this story wasSpain’s answer to The Chroniclesof Narnia which are very oldbooks, published in 1950, justafter World War II! Overall, It wasentertaining and deliveredfantasy of a kind.
