'Cold Sweat' ('Araghe Sard'): Film Review

'Cold Sweat' ('Araghe Sard'): Film Review
In the heatedly performed drama Cold Sweat (Araghe Sard), a professional female soccer player finds herself stranded at home as her team takes off to Malaysia for the Asia Cup finals. The reason she’s left behind is due to a simple and completely lopsided facet of Iranian civil law: A woman needs permission from her husband in order to leave the country. If he says no, she’s stuck.

And so, in writer-director Soheil Beiraghi’s quietly gripping second feature, Afrooz (Baran Kosari), the captain of Iran’s national futsal squad — futsal is a form of indoor soccer that’...

Tokyo Film Review: ‘Cold Sweat’

Tokyo Film Review: ‘Cold Sweat’
An angry woman rails against the system in the punchy and timely “Cold Sweat,” a fact-based drama about an Iranian national futsal team member whose husband uses his legal right to prevent her traveling abroad and playing in the most important game of her life. This intelligently written, well performed and emotionally rewarding second feature by writer-director Soheil Beiraghi (“Me”) will enlighten and entertain audiences everywhere. A hit in local cinemas when released in late September, “Cold Sweat” ought to enjoy a long festival life at the very least. French arthouse outfit Sophie Dulac Distribution will screen the film theatrically Nov. 28.

A tale with especially strong appeal in these #TimesUp times, “Cold Sweat” draws from the real-life cases of many Iranian sportswomen whose dreams were dashed when their husbands invoked patriarchal laws. Its success at the local box office comes in the wake of well-publicized protests at the men’s soccer World Cup in June,

Watch The Red-band Trailer for Here Comes The Devil

It came, it saw, and it left with all the major horror awards, along with lots of major accolades. We're talking about Mexican horror film Here Comes the Devil, written and directed by Adrián García Bogliano of Cold Sweat fame. In Here Comes the Devil, a couple on holiday lose their two young children while walking in the hills. To their immense relief the kids are found the next day, but they seem a bit... different. Soon, the mother starts suspecting something else came home with them. It's not often that you hear a film described as being "sleazy", "exploitative", "creepy", "intelligent" and "terrifying" all at the same time, but apparently Adrián worked wonders here. At Fantastic Fest last month it won Best Film, Best...

Red Band Trailer for Here Comes the Devil

  • DailyDead
Magnet Releasing gave us a look at the Us poster for Here Comes the Devil earlier this week and we now have a new red band trailer:

“A young family with two preteen kids — a son and a daughter —stop their car at a roadside gas station across from a large, unusual hill while on a family trip in Tijuana. The two kids, Sara (Michele Garcia) and Adolfo (Alan Martinez), explore the hill on their own, only to vanish into thin air. The following day, they return to their distraught parents, seemingly unharmed, and claiming to have gotten lost in a dark cave on the slope.

While father Félix (Francisco Barreiro) is relieved to have the children back, mother Sol (Laura Caro) soon starts to notice that something isn’t quite right with Sara and Adolfo, who are acting sullen, avoiding school and freaking out their babysitter. As these domestic

Breaking America: an extract from Piers Morgan's Shooting Straight

In his new book, the former News of the World and Daily Mirror editor turned CNN anchorman tells his side of the story of how he hit the big-time in the Us

Sunday 12 September 2010

I was working out in the Beverly Wilshire gym when I saw Radha Arora, the flamboyant general manager. "Who's your first guest?" he asked. "I'm trying for President Obama, but it's highly unlikely until he's seen what it's like."

"What about Oprah?" he said.

"She'd be incredible, but I don't know her, or her people."

"Oprah's best friend, Gayle King, is in town. Why don't you ask her?"

I sent an email: "Dear Gayle, As you may know, I'm replacing Larry King on CNN. What you may not know is that I am a stupendous fan of Oprah. And I'm desperate to interview her for my launch week. I know she's the busiest woman on the planet,

5 More Recent Horror Movies You May Have Missed (But Should See)
While there may be a shortage of theatrical horror films scoring a nationwide release, there are still plenty of titles touring the festival circuit and coming out via VOD and DVD that are equally worthy of your attention. Unfortunately, films that don’t get the big-studio marketing treatment often wind up passed over by a lot of horror fans... or, sadly, overlooked entirely. To shed some light on some of these lesser-known features, we ran a piece last month spotlighting a series of impressive films released over the past five years which may not have received all the publicity they deserved (due to financial limitations, being overshadowed by larger scale releases, or myriad other reasons). For your consideration, today we're showcasing five more titles that may have passed you by, but are certainly worthy of your attention. We hope that even die-hard fans of the macabre will find a film

Charles Bronson Died Ten Years Ago Today – Here Are His Ten Best Films

I think everyone remembers where they were August 31st, 2003 when they heard that Charles Bronson had died. I was visiting my brother in Atlanta when my nephew knocked on my door and informed me that CNN had announced his death. I collapsed into a sobbing heap. Bronson was my hero, my muse, my role model. Hollywood’s brightest star would shine no more. It’s hard to believe he’s been gone ten years.

Charles Bronson was the unlikeliest of movie stars. Of all the leading men in the history of Hollywood, Charles Bronson had the least range as an actor. He rarely emoted or even changed his expression, and when he did speak, his voice was a reedy whisper. But Charles Bronson could coast on presence, charisma, and silent brooding menace like no one’s business and he wound up the world’s most bankable movie star throughout most of the 1970’s.

Director & Actor Teams: The Overlooked & Underrated (Part 2 of 2)

Following are some supplemental sections featuring notable director & actor teams that did not meet the criteria for the main body of the article. Some will argue that a number of these should have been included in the primary section but keep in mind that film writing on any level, from the casual to the academic, is a game of knowledge and perception filtered through personal taste.

Other Notable Director & Actor Teams

This section is devoted to pairings where the duo worked together at least 3 times with the actor in a major role in each feature film, resulting in 1 must-see film.

Terence Young & Sean Connery

Megadeth – Super Collider Review

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Release Date: 4th of June

Super Collider is Megadeth’s fourteenth studio album and the first to be released on Dave Mustaine’s new label, Tradecraft. This is not the album that fans were expecting from the current generation of the band, and as such it has already drawn a fair amount of fire and hate from many with statements such as those from this Metal Sucks review:

“Super Collider is undoubtedly the worst Megadeth album since 2001′s The World Needs a Hero, and it is very possibly as bad as 1999′s infamous Risk…This isn’t metal — it’s muzak, an album populated predominantly by old man rock…”

Reviews such as this one are dismissive, plain and simple. Born from this line of thinking: “I dislike either the person, or the band, so this is instantly bad.” My advice, look out for a “MegaDave” reference,
