Remembering Dino De Laurentiis

from The Criterion Current

The prolific movie megaproducer Dino De Laurentiis died this week at the age of ninety-one. One of the most powerful and influential figures in cinema history, De Laurentiis was responsible for more than 150 films over the course of a seven-decade career, both in his native Italy and in Hollywood. He was particularly revered by cinephiles for producing some of the visionary early films of Federico Fellini, including La strada and Nights of Cabiria.

Press Notes: Antichrist

Movie Review: Veda by Zulfu Livaneli

from İstanbul Altı by Asher

Turkey, as a country, as a nation, does some things very good and some things not quite as good. Bus transportation is very much on the former end of the spectrum. Intercity buses are cheap, safe, and very comfortable. You can get to the Otogar early and play bus companies off of each other to get the best deal. You get tea/water/soft drink service once you?re on the bus. Many companies or stations have a free service that?ll take you to the middle of whatever town your visiting (but apparently not Istanbul if you get there late?in fact, none of this article could be said for EfeTur). Also on the buses are personal televisions built into the back of each seat. So you get your choice of a few television stations or movie channels on the bus. This is, most certainly, a good thing.
