Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben -July 5, 2014

 



Aubrey Reuben




On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
July 5, 2014

07-03-14 Director Lee Su-jin "Han Gong-ju" at a reception for the 2014 New York Asian Film Festival at the Walter Reade Theater. 165 West 65th St. Wednesday night. 07-02-14
 

 





 
American Ballet Theatre (ABT) presented The Dream, choreography by Frederick Ashton, music of Felix Mendelssohn. Cory Stearns replaced David Hallberg, who was injured, as Oberon, and was superb. With a delightful Gillian Murphy as Titania, and a scene stealing Herman  Cornejo as Puck, it was a joy to watch. The program also included The Tempest, choreography by Alexei Ratmansky, music by Jean Sibelius, with Marcel Gomes as Prospero and an enchanting Sarah Lane as his daughter. The eight week season at the Metropolitan Opera House was a resounding success.

 
The Film Society at Lincoln Center is presenting press screenings of the 13th New York Asian Film Festival, June 27-July 14. I attended a reception for Umin Boya, the director of Kano, at the Walter Reade Theater..

 
Another reception was held for director Lee Su-jin Han Gong-ju and actress Lee Eun-Woo Moebius. Both receptions were delightful events,    and the directors and actress were charming. 

 
As I attended a press conference featuring Sandra Ng, considered the Queen of Comedy in Hong Kong, I went to see her film Golden Chickensss, by Matt Chow, Hong Kong, 2014, which she produced. Since she knows all the famous stars of Hong Kong, they all appear in cameos in the film. Although Ng plays an old madam in this tale of prostitution, it is neither sexy nor sensual. It is supposed to be a comedy, but it is not funny, just silly. I was deeply disappointed.

 
R100, by Hitoshi Matsumoto, Japan, 2013, is another comedy, whose humor escapes me. A lonely father, who has a dull job as a furniture salesman, joins a bondage club, which provides him with sado-masachistic dominatrixes. The constant torture and beatings do not represent entertainment to me.

 
MoMA is presenting: ContemporAsian. Han Gong-Ju, by Lee Su-jin, South Korea, 2013, is based on a true incident, in which two young girls were gang raped, and one died. The surviver, played by a wonderful young actress Chun Woo-hee, is transferred to another school and is boarded with a former teacher's mother. The hardships she suffers in the aftermath of the atrocious attack makes for a powerful and sad film. The film shifts from the present to the past, where we are appalled by the brutality of the young men involved in the crime. The acting by the entire cast is excellent. The film is also being shown in the festival.

The Film Society at Lincoln Center is also presenting press screenings of the 15th Annual Latinbeat July 11-20. Casa Grande, by Fellipe Barbosa, Brazil, 2014, is a penetrating view of a dysfunctional upper-middle-class family in Rio. Thales Cavalcanti gives an astonishing performance as seventeen-year-old high school student struggling with his sexuality, the pressure of university entrance exams and his discovery of the father's financial problems. It also examines racism in the country. The acting is first rate, and the story is realistic. With wonderful photography, it will be one of the highlights of the festival.

 
Natural Sciences (Ciencias Naturales), by Matias Lucchesi, Argenina/France, 2014, is an unusual film with a remarkable performance by Paula Hertzog as a 12-year-old student in a boarding school, who wants to find her father, whom she has never known. With the help of a sympathetic teacher, they begin a journey to find him. The film leaves a deep impression on the viewer, and is another fine film in the festival.

 
The Man of the Crowd (O Homen das Multidoes), by Marcelo Gomes and Cao Guimaraes, Brazil, 2013, is a film about a lonely train driver. We watch him at home, where he does his morning exercises in a miserable apartment, and at his job, where he becomes friends with a fellow worker, who asks him to be a witness at her wedding. They are, without doubt, the two most boring and dull people to ever appear in film. The film will bore the spectator.

 
All About the Feathers (Por las Plumas), by Neta Villalobos, Costa Rica, 2013, is, I assume, a comedy about a security guard obsessed with cockfighting, who buys a rooster to make him money and become famous. He has three friends. One is a an overweight maid. Another is an overweight teenager, who wants to learn about cockfighting, and the third is another security guard, who spouts what little he knows about Christianity. The four actors are the most boring people in the world, except for the two in the Brazilian train film above. The rooster is more interesting than the people.

 
The Searches (Las Busquedas), by Jose Luis Valle, Mexico, 2013, is a very low budget film, about an unemployed man, whose wallet is stolen on the subway. For two years he searches for the thief. It is also the story of a widow, whose husband commits suicide, and who begins to give her dead husband's clothes to the man, when he delivers bottled water to her home. Apparently, they fall in love and marry. The film is slow moving, the dialogue is banal, the thief and the man's friend are singularly unattractive, and the story is totally unbelievable and boring. Films should be entertaining, or, at least, be about interesting characters. I rarely use the adjective boring, but in the case of the three films above, it is necessary.
