Jackie Chan and our intern, Dasha Mayorga

This was my first time seeing Jackie Chan in a serious role and I enjoyed it. The film still had enough action you would expect from a Chan movie. Pierce Brosnan is seriously dangerous in this film and it was nice to see him in such a role. The Foreigner is a good action film with a heart. Check out the audio with Jackie, who told us how this film came to him.

The Foreigner Jackie Chan

The plot: The film tells the story of humble London businessman Quan (Chan), whose long-buried past erupts in a revenge-fueled vendetta when the only person left for him to love—his teenage daughter—is taken from him in a senseless act of politically-motivated terrorism.

Directed by Martin Campbell and screenplay by David Marconi. Based on the novel The Chinaman by Stephen Leather.

Chavela the Documentary

Chavela is my second favorite documentary of the year, one that is long overdue just like Dolores, which is about civil rights and union organizer, Dolores Huerta.

I had the pleasure to talk to one of the co-directors of the film, Daresha Kyi, who I could of spoken to for hours about Chavela Vargas, a Mexican singer whose international fame peaked after a triumphant return to the stage at the age of 71.Angela Ortíz, Daresha Kyi

Music Box Films is proud to present the U.S. theatrical release of Chavela, directed by Catherine Gund and Daresha Kyi. The film has garnered many awards: the Audience Award and Grand Jury Prize at Outfest (Los Angeles LGBTQ Film Festival), the Audience Award at Frameline (San Francisco International LGBTQ Film Festival), and Official Selection at 2017 Berlin International Film Festival, HotDocs, Seattle International Film Festival, OUTFEST.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Chavela Vargas talent and life, here’s a bit about her and what you’ll see in the documentary.

She was born in Costa Rica in 1919, Chavela ran away to Mexico City as a teenager to sing in the streets. By the 1950s she had become a darling of the city’s thriving bohemian club scene, delivering her performances with a raw passion and unique voice. Challenging mainstream Mexican morals by dressing in pants, drinking tequila, and smoking cigars while singing love songs intended for men to woo women and refusing to change the pronouns, Chavela was a bold, rebellious, sexual pioneer who defied gender and sexuality stereotypes at a time when being “out” was often dangerous.

Full Interview

Chavela centers around a 1992 interview—the singer’s first public appearance after 12 hard years lost to alcoholism and heartbreak. Her amazing comeback began when Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar, who had featured her music in many of his films, played an instrumental role in elevating her career to international acclaim.

Chavela (Isabel Vargas Lizano) passed away in 2012 at the age of 93.

Chavela opened at Film Forum in New York on Wednesday, October 4th and the Nuart in Los Angeles on October 6. A national release will follow.

Press conference in downtown L.A.

Director Denis Villeneuve is very true to the pace of the original Blade Runner. It starts very slow just like the original and you want it to move on. Once it does, it keeps getting more and more interesting—a little blurry at times following the storyline but this film has so much going for it in action and visuals that you keep watching. And just like the first film for me, I’ll have to watch it again to absorb more of it. The sound was intense in the theater I saw the film in.

We attended the press conference and have the audio here for you to enjoy! Listen to what Harrison Ford has to say about the original film and this new one.

The plot: Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.

From executive producer Ridley Scott and starring Ana De Armas, MacKenzie Davis, Sylvia Hoeks, Lennie James, Carla Juri, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista, and Jared Leto.

In 3D and 2D in select theaters and IMAX on October 6.
