Rare Burmese film screens at Tribeca, ‘Ice Poison’ focuses on illegal drugs Burmese-Taiwanese filmmaker Midi Z has revealed his new movie in the Tribeca film festival in Ny. ‘Ice Poison’ is another title for that drug crystal meth in Chinese, which movie tells the tale of the poor small player in Myanmar attracted to the lucrative business of drugs dealing.The young film-maker has created a signature design for his personal portraits of aimlessness, drug-abuse and the poverty that trouble his homeland. “Besides cast and budget restrictions, I face another major barrier. I can’t show the film in public places since we didn’t get permission to take it – therefore the problem was, how can we take our video without permission, how would you create a movie having very little budget and a hidden-camera? Ultimately, I believe the trip component was a method to avoid those limitations – that’s what art is all about,” stated Midi Z in the testing. Ang Lee recognized it and made up like a surprise visitor for that film’s Tribeca testing. “They have almost no income, little camera – electronic, 10 days,” said the Oscar-winning director. Exactly the same is I think the same manner we express our heart, attempt to talk, tell our stories, that’sed by “But. So we’re all-in exactly the same household and I’m pleased to assist films like this. And I began this way too, myself.” The movie has gotten mixed reviews. Though some deplore its “grindingly slow pace”, others identify it as Midi Z’s “best (function) up to now”. ‘Ice [...]

‘Fading Gigolo’ shines with John Turturro at the helm ‘Fading Gigolo’, directed and written by John Turturro, stars Woody Allen and Vanessa Paradis. Turturro also stars, alongside a wealth of other famous people along with Sharon Stone.Referring to dealing with Woody Allen, Turturro said: “For the very first time there is trepidation, but he was the best person to work well with. Set off and he loves to improvise a bit and return on, but he really was a prince to work well with so when I gave him instructions, so long as it made sense to him, he made it happen. If he didn’t he’d ask me a problem, but he rarely did.” Sofia Vergara “Imagine your very first time being with Sharon Stone, and said it had been her very first time firing room views: performed Sharon Stone’s gal-PAL, in and from the room! It had been really tense at first however when I got about the collection and I met her she simply said, ‘Follow my guide, I’ve done this a million times!’ She simply took over as well as dealing with John Turturro, was fantastic.” ‘Falling Gigolo’ might easily happen to be only a voyeuristic journey via a number of sex scenes, in reality the movie isn’t really about gender whatsoever. It’s a funny, sweet-hearted pursuit of isolation as well as the things people do to avoid it.

It displays within the movie. It’s a large scale movie designed for a simple budget,” he says.
