Critically acclaimed filmmaker, Selvaraghavan, who was on a brief break, is all set to impress his fans with his upcoming movie. The realistic filmmaker's long in the making movie, Nenjam Marappathillai, has got a release date finally. Being bankrolled by another classy filmmaker, Gautham Vasudev Menon, the movie began its principle cinematography in Jan 2016. In what is said to be a venture uniting the three great directors, the movie stars S.J. Suryah in the lead, another noted filmmaker. Santhosh Narayanan of Kabali fame was initially roped in to score music for the movie. However, the young sensation was replaced by Yuvan Shankar Raja and thereby reuniting the Selvaraghavan-Yuvan combo after a long time. Selvaraghavan was last seen wielding the microphone in 2013 with Irandam Ulagam . A couple of projects including Simbu's Kaan, under his captaincy, fell out at the proposal stage. A single track of the movie from Yuvan Shankar Raja, … [Read more...] about Selvaraghavan’s Nenjam Marappathillai Gets A Release Date
Marie Ulven, a.k.a. Girl in Red , stops herself mid-apology — the kind you utter when you think you’re talking too fast or you’re unsure whether the listener gets your drift. “I’m not gonna say sorry,” the 22-year-old musician says firmly, breaking off from a discussion of her new album, If I Could Make It Go Quiet . “I don’t want to be that person who apologizes for everything. I’m not sorry. There you go, Marie. You’re the protagonist.” Even though Ulven is Zooming in from Oslo — with the camera off — her personality crackles across the miles and timezones. Delightfully verbose, snarkily self-deprecating, and “really bad at boundaries” (her words), Ulven has carved out a place for herself in indie rock by appealing to her listeners’ insecurities and yearnings. Her Girl in Red persona — think Billie Eilish’s self-aware bluster, mixed with a healthy splash of early ‘00s college rock — grapples in equal turns with mental health and sometimes unrequited lust. It’s a combination … [Read more...] about Girl in Red’s Supercharged Indie Rock Honesty
One of the last times Annie Clark went to see her father in a Texas prison, a fellow visitor asked her to autograph a receipt — the only paper they had on hand. “You can’t bring phones in, so you can’t take a normal selfie. I guess I’m glad that a selfie of me in there doesn’t exist,” Clark, 38, says. “I find it very darkly comic. It’s obviously very sad, but it’s also incredibly funny.” Clark saw her father taken away by the U.S. government in May 2010 for what she describes as “white-collar nonsense.” Over the next near-decade, she visited him in between releasing four albums of increasingly acclaimed art rock as St. Vincent . She performed with Nirvana at the 2014 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony … and was forced to go to Walmart more than once to buy XXL sweatpants when the prison deemed her clothing too tight for a visit. She won Best Rock Song at the 2019 Grammys … while the massive collection of books she brought for her dad to read behind bars was confiscated … [Read more...] about St. Vincent’s Family Ties
The widow of a man wrongfully executed for murder seeks justice in all the wrong places in Behtash Sanaeeha and Maryam Moghaddam’s Iranian drama. Adding another strong voice to the chorus of anti-capital-punishment films coming out of Iran is Ballad of a White Cow ( Ghasideyeh gave sefid ), a drama almost entirely centered on the wife of a condemned man who is wrongfully executed for murder in the opening scene. Played with huge amounts of feminine dignity by Maryam Moghaddam, who co-directed with Behtash Sanaeeha, the widow Mina is shown to be refreshingly capable of raising her deaf daughter on her own and navigating the minefield of a highly misogynistic society — and even (gasp) of finding love. But as hostility against Mina builds from her family, neighbors and the authorities, disaster looms and the story grows more suspenseful, teetering on the edge of melodrama. Fortunately, the realism of the acting and the classic, restrained camerawork keep things on a believable … [Read more...] about ‘Ballad of a White Cow’: Film Review | Berlin 2021
