Toronto fete Kicks Off With Animal Rights Protest 123421

Animal rights activists on Thursday took a stand against luxury parka maker Canada Goose’s sponsorship of the Toronto Film Festival just as the star-studded event got underway.

Around 25 protesters, led by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, assembled in front of Bell Lightbox on King Street, headquarters for TIFF, to voice their concerns over how Canada Goose sources its coyote fur and goose down to make its puffy jackets.

«Canada Goose is a Canadian company. We’re Canadian and proud to be from Canada, but the fact that Canada Goose is exploiting animals is obscene,» Toronto activist Rhea Akler told The Hollywood Reporter as she held a placard as part of the demonstration.

The parka maker is sponsoring the juried best Canadian film award at TIFF, which comes with $30,000 in prize money.

Tricia Lebkuecher, a campaigner for PETA, insisted her animal rights group had asked the Toronto Film Festival over the years to follow the Berlin Film Festival in 2017 and end its sponsorship deal with the global retailer. «We would like TIFF to stop partnering with this cruel company,» she told THR.

Me declaro en huelga de entrevistas, dice AMLO en Tijuana

En medio de una jornada particularmente llena de imprevistos, el presidente Andrés Manuel López Obrador llegó al aeropuerto de Tijuana de donde partiría rumbo a San Quintín para visitar el Hospital Rural del lugar.

Durante su visita a El Fuerte, Sinaloa, dijo que tiene una agenda muy apretada y no quiere que lo deje el avión.

Durante su recorrido en Sinaloa el mandatario se ha encontrado con una mayor presencia de gente que acudió a su encuentro para exponerle sus problemas y pedir su atención.

La rutina del presidente de detenerse a escuchar el sentir de la gente ha provocado que sus actividades se retrasen hasta cerca de 40 minutos, como en la misma comunidad de El Fuerte, donde todos fueron citados para participar desde la 9:30 horas.

El presidente tuvo que detenerse más de 10 ocasiones, por lo que llegó hasta las 10:20 horas para ofrecer disculpa por su retraso en lo que la gente no dejaba de ovacionarlo.

Luego el presidente estuvo a punto de perder el avión, a pesar de que éste también llevaba un retraso de 25 minutos, por lo que al ser recibido por los medios que lo esperaban, en tono de broma, comentó: “me declaro en huelga de entrevistas”.

Empero, durante su trayecto al avión compartió breves comentarios ante la prensa al explicar que una de las prioridades que esperaba atender en San Quintín es la situación de los migrantes.

Del aeropuerto de Tijuana a San Quintín el trayecto del mandatario sería de cuatro horas por carretera y otras cuatro de regreso a Tijuana, al terminar su encuentro, con lo que terminaría su recorrido este fin de semana por Sinaloa y Baja California.

A partir de la próxima semana el presidente agendaría la visita a los últimos tres Hospitales Rurales del IMSS Solidaridad, con lo que terminaría con el compromiso de visitar las 80 unidades para iniciar con la siguiente etapa de acercar los servicios de salud a toda la población.

Joker’s lukewarm take on politics places chair of billionaire-philanthropist

Joker’s lukewarm take on politics places Thomas Wayne (Brett Cullen) in the chair of billionaire-philanthropist-turned politician. Considering a run in Gotham’s next mayoral race, Thomas appears nightly on television next to his idol, Murray. Where Murray presents warmth and jovial laughs, Thomas represents elitism, a status Arthur could never hope to reach. To make matters worse, Arthur’s mother (Frances Conroy) is obsessed with the beautiful man who used to be her employer, and whom she thinks is her child’s father. Every day she writes him a letter, hoping he will uplift her from poverty, but he never responds. As Arthur lives at her bedside, works for her stability, Thomas Wayne becomes an irritant for him. But, he’s unable to disobey his mother’s desire for him to meet the man she believes is his father. When they finally meet, it’s after Arthur paid a frightening visit to a young Bruce (Dante Pereira-Olson). Thomas cruelly reveals that Penny Fleck lied about their relationship and then beats Arthur up.

There’s an emotional cost for Arthur, learning the one stable parent he’s hoped for not only didn’t want him, but was also just as cruel as strangers in the street. If Joker is an homage to The King of Comedy — the 1983 Martin Scorsese movie about an aspiring standup obsessed with a late night host — then an analysis of celebrity is demanded in the film. But, the analysis ends at “rich, famous guy is an asshole.” Thomas believes Arthur to be dangerous, which isn’t an inaccurate conclusion to arrive at. Thomas’ political stances, and  how he uses his power doesn’t get enough screen time. He might be against worker’s rights, given a non-specific comment on the garbage strike. Thomas Wayne may not be likeable, but he’s certainly no villain.

Martin Scorsese on price of Not Knowing Director’s Identity Before Seeing Their Films

At the New York Film Festival, the Oscar winner talked about filmmakers he admires, the «danger of a demagogue taking over America» and the exit of the fest’s outgoing director Kent Jones.

Martin Scorsese on Saturday revealed why he doesn’t like to know a director’s identity before watching their work and more about his love of film before giving New York Film Festival director and collaborator Kent Jones a sentimental sendoff during a packed panel discussion at the event.

Held at the Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall and hosted less than a day after the high-profile premiere of his latest film, The Irishman, Scorsese took a few minutes during the nearly hourlong event to touch on his experience viewing Joanna Hogg’s directorial debut Archipelago. While elaborating on his admiration for Hogg’s use of landscape, the Wolf of Wall Street and Taxi Driver helmer digressed to explain why he values viewing the art before the artist. «She’s amazing, Hogg,» Scorsese told Jones. «I just didn’t know her. I didn’t realize who made the picture. I had no idea if it was a man, woman, whatever. And it’s so great you can see films that way and not know who did it, and then find out. So you can look at it as art in and of itself, for itself.»

 

Hogg was just one among several filmmkaers whose work the Oscar winner praised during the event, which saw Scorsese and Jones analyzing various cinematic elements, styles and devices of a handful of notable films. While time constraints meant selected scenes from the 2016 Romanian film Sieranevada and the 1965 Nazi-occupation drama …and the Fifth Horseman Is Fear weren’t shown, the two did dissect scenes from Ari Aster’s horror hit Hereditary and the 1954 Hugo Haas-directed Bait alongside Scorsese’s discussion about Archipelago.

NY Film Festival: Scorsese Praises Netflix for Backing «Costly Experiment» of ‘The Irishman’
Scorsese lauded Haas for his ability to craft films that were more pure and inventive despite — or rather, in light of — a smaller budget, while the performances in Hereditary earned compliments of «dynamic» and «astounding.» The Irishman director was also particularly fond of Aster’s ability to create what he saw as a family-driven narrative that doubled as horror and drama.

«It’s horror, but it’s more than that,» Scorsese said of Aster’s feature-length directorial debut. «For me, when you take the horror out, it still works. But the horror elements, how should I say this — they shock you in a good way. They shock you into an awakening of the real pain of these people.»

Beyond the chance to hear Scorsese commend directors living and deceased, the event ultimately offered a relaxed but intimate look at how he approaches and values producing and consuming cinema. With a succinct frankness, Scorsese declared that when it comes to moviemaking, «what it really takes is desire and obsession.» As for how you define a good or bad movie, what may not be «a good film» may still be good art, and who decides either matters.

«For a film ‘that works’ or ‘doesn’t work,’ I mean — for who?» Scorsese said.Amid the panel’s more intensive discussion, there were a few moments of hearty laughter. That included an aside about Bait star Cleo Moore’s six-week marriage to former Louisiana Gov. Huey P. Long’s son, which became a reference to both All the King’s Men and a more subtle jab at Donald Trump. (All the King’s Men is a Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Robert Penn Warren based on Long that was adapted for the big screen first in 1949 and again in 2006.)

«It’s [a film] about the danger of a demagogue, uh… taking over America,» Scorsese said of Robert Rossen’s 1949 version, while pointedly looking at the audience. «It’s very important for understanding fascism and totalitarianism and authoritarianism and very important in terms of the psyche of the country at the time.»

For all its deep-diving on directorial work, the hourlong panel focused very little on Scorsese’s latest film and first for Netflix, The Irishman, a three-and-a-half-hour drama chronicling the life of mob hitman Frank Sheeran (played by Robert De Niro) and his role in labor leader and longtime friend Jimmy Hoffa’s (Al Pacino) disappearance.

While attendees may not have gotten any direct insight into his creative approach on The Irishman, Scorsese did take the time to share what he loved about Jones’ approach as the New York Film Festival’s director following news that Jones would be stepping down from the role at the end of this year’s event.

«In 1963, when this thing first started, I couldn’t afford the tickets, but it was the most remarkable thing to happen in New York,» Scorsese said. «But there’s something about the excitement of those first years that I only felt again when you took the reins here. … It’s a real love of cinema, and it was expressed to me under your guidance during this time.»
