Cinema Jenin: The Story of a Dream


Cinema Jenin follows an ambitious initiative to re-open a previously abandoned cinema in the West Bank city of Jenin. Founded in the 1960s, it was once the largest cinema in Palestine, today it stands as a hollow echo of its society. Re-building the cinema, Germans and Palestinians come together evoking often comedic but always political and cultural ramifacations. Cinema Jenin witnessed an intimate, nuanced and textured view into the city and its domestic affairs as well as the journey of a dedicated, loyal, often conflicted group of people who hope that the re-building of the cinema will be a bridge to peace, freedom and Palestinian self-empowerment. .

stefano l (es) wrote: The budget of this film was law, for sure, and you understand it at first sight, but poor budget not always means poor story, acting and filming. Well, in this case, unfortunately, does. Virginia is showed the very same as Selene of Underworld (both for the story of her parents killed by the werewolfs and for how she acts), but of Selene doesn't have anything. And the movieitself has a lot of recallings to Underworld (the ability that the werewolves develop to transform at command, the way in which they transform, their appearance). I really hated how, at any scene change, the screen went black and the sound dropped. This was really boring and gave even more the idea of a low budget product.

gerardo r (ru) wrote: Alphaville seems to be a satire of science fiction and noir detective movies. The movie moves forward with the plot with dead seriousness so there are no cues as to what are the satirical elements. The viewer might need to be more educated about Godard or the time period, so it might be a film I need to revisit. It does not enter the odd Kafkaesque worldview, but it comes close with odd scenes, a few unexplained scenes and people's reactions. It is definitely one of the earlier movies that takes on the concepts of Orwell's 1984 (1948) and Huxley's Brave New World (1932). It is definitely a well done movie but it is difficult to connect with it because of the slow pace, sparse dialogue, and sterile atmosphere. The reason it cannot be faulted too much is that it does succeed in presenting a sterile, non-emotional, robotic world which was its purpose. The robotic voice throughout the film is not the most pleasant to listen to. The movie does not try to create any special effects; the futuristic city of Alphaville is Paris, a planet in the outer galaxy is Nueva York and the spaceship is his car. Despite some of its difficulties with certain audiences, it is an engaging film about the role of love and poetry in a growing technologically advanced world.

Unfortunately, in real life I haven't had great luck dodging assholes with hostile feedback towards me, such as violent threats of beating me up, for complimenting ROTF. To me, cheering for Optimus Prime punching and slicing up Decepticons all just for stupid weak humans is a lot more fun than hating and booing at it.
