Oscar season is afoot once again and I, Justin Zarian, am back to offer my thoughts on what will make the cut for each category when January rolls around (except for the short film categories because those are impossible to predict this early).

Dar Salim stars as Zaid, a second generation Iraqi immigrant to Denmark, and respected surgeon with a pregnant wife. Zaid’s Continue Reading...

Salim Shaheen is one of Afghanistan’s, and perhaps the world’s, most prolific filmmakers. But his is a name probably not known to many outside of the Middle East. Nothingwood comes from Salim himself as he notes that America has Hollywood, India has Bollywood and, as he points to the desert around him, Afghanistan has Nothingwood. At the outset of this Continue Reading...

‘Gilbert’ Review

0 Submitted by on Mon, 25 September 2017, 12:59
The first time I ever heard the voice of Gilbert Gottfried it was coming out of the mouth of Iago the bright red parrot in Aladdin. Gilbert was one of many great things about that movie, but it was a character that always stuck with me. For decades Gottfried has been known as the wacky, screechy, and his pummel-you-over-the-head-with-jokes comedy Continue Reading...
