Reviews » Crooked Earth, Pillsbury, 2001
The meta-narrative of Aotearoa New Zealand film
by Davinia Thornley
[12.4.13] - 'Crooked Earth' (Sam Pillsbury 2001) presents a compelling case study of a new millennium shift for the New Zealand Film Commission: away from quotas for indigenous, nationally-orientated themes and more overtly towards packaging Aotearoa New Zealand’s (ANZ) specific interests and issues into an internationally-marketable format. A film like 'Crooked Earth' represents this divide in microcosm.

[28.9.12] - Tante storie si intrecciano e si contaminano sulla scena, attraverso l'incontro-scontro tra le diverse idee etiche e i diversi paradigmi morali sulla questione del finevita. Sullo sfondo le dinamiche della vita democratica dell'Italia e le risposte inadeguate della politica.

Murnau’s The Haunted Castle and Taking-Leave
by Steve Choe
[27.7.12] - This essay reads F. W. Murnau’s 1921 film, The Haunted Castle (Schloß Vogelöd - Die Enthüllung eines Geheimnisses), in relation to the experience of trauma resultant from the First World War. It shows how the empty rooms of the castle may be read to allegorize the internalization of loss by those who survived.

[31.12.11] - The history of cinema has depicted cyborgs in many ways and in many genres, especially science fiction and horror, and, due to their constitutive ambiguity, frequently mixing them with aliens, mutants, androids, clones, homunculi, robots and monsters. Contemporary reflection on these beings and their limits, and how we could all be cyborgs today, as biologist Donna Haraway suggests in her “Cyborg Manifesto”, has found its way to the screen and has opened up a debate that goes well beyond science fiction and mainstream cinema.
