Cinequest Day 2 (Feb. 26)

anotherman.jpg It’s a good thing that most of the features at the festival play more than once, otherwise fans would have a hard time choosing between The Market at 7pm and Another Man at 7:15pm.

As Metro’s Steve Palopoli wrote, The Market is a surprising tale of black-market capitalism in Turkey. Perhaps most unexpected of all is the way British writer/director Ben Hopkins’ satire on the free market—broken down into a microcosm here with the Byzantine schemes of one Turkish trader, Mihram (Tatanc Ayaydin)—is not exactly an indictment. Yes, everyone is corrupt, and exploitation is everywhere, but ironically the flip side is embodied by Mihram himself. A reluctant drunk and partially reformed crazy dreamer, he gets involved with all the wrong things for all the right reasons. Mihram’s misadventures are so entertaining, and the people he meets along the way so interesting, that regardless of what message one takes home, The Market is worth the trip. (SP)

Feb. 26 at 7pm at Camera 12 and March 1 at 2:15pm at the California Theatre.

Meanwhile, Metro’s Richard von Busack really liked Another Man, a Swiss films about the travails of a faux film critic (besides the occupational hook was too strong to resist). As Richard wrote in this week’s Metro about the film:

In the scheme of things, it’s probably bad enough being a film critic; it’s far worse to be a poseur at the trade. This acid Swiss comedy has it all: rancor, full frontal nudity and rich black-and-white photography of the remote, snowy Vallée du Joux. François Robin (the Henry Rollinsish Robin Harsch) is a diffident expert on medieval French poetry who takes over the local weekly shopper’s film review section. Too bad for him that his first assignment is the difficult Last Days by Gus Van Sant. Having no idea of what to write, François plagiarizes word for word from a particularly intellectual film journal. Soon, this word-robber is styling himself as an intransigent film critic, hitting the press screenings in nearby Lausanne. He seduces Rosa Rouge, a coldly formidable but big-breasted local cinéaste (Natacha Koutchoumov). He may not know anything about movies, but fortunately François is one of those people whose silences are mistaken for evidence that he possesses a greater intelligence than the chattering classes can offer. Director Lionel Baier (Stupid Boy, Stealth) was once a film programmer at a small art house and is probably getting a little of his own back. But the references to Chabrol don’t shame what we’re watching. And Robin is a newspaper heel worthy of Billy Wilder’s Ace in the Hole. This is absolutely not for people who can’t stand films about bastards and bitches. (RvB)

Feb. 26 at 7:15pm and March 7 at 9pm, both at San Jose Rep.

 Our recommendation: Since this is a film festival, see the Another Man first in order to understand the critical mind, and save The Market for March 1.
