Nota Bene

Heistbox (popularly known as Dropbox) has now permanently altered the accounts of its original users. (See my post, “Dropbox and the Snake Oil Sales Model of Tech Firms,” June 12, 2015). I think I have removed or updated all of my original Heistbox links; please write or tweet if you click somewhere and cannot get to the review or feature you would like to read. Thank you.

An Interview with Pablo Larrain

I have just added a link ("Feature Articles") to my interview with Pablo Larrain, the director of "No," nominated in the category of "Best Foreign Film." Larrain's candid remarks provide insight into his work as a politically committed filmmaker.

"No" is the third film in Larrain's trilogy about Chile's turbulent past. The first two were "Post Mortem," about the coup which unseated President Salvador Allende and ushered in the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet, and "Tony Manero," about a psychopath living during Pinochet's dictatorship who dreams of winning a national dance contest.
