Tidbit from Comic Con*

- excerpted from Comic Con through the eyes of a fan
By Shadaliza

I thanked Nelsan for the autograph and told him that I was glad his character didn’t get killed off. He laughed and said “me too”. I knew I wanted to speak with Sam** about his guest appearance on LOCI. So as I got to him I asked him about being on Law and Order and working with Vincent D’Onofrio. He said he enjoyed doing the show and Vincent was absolutely great to work with, just a wonderful person to be around. I told him he did a really great job on the show and he thanked me for that. I was still talking to Sam as Deborah signed, so didn’t really speak with her. Alexander is really tall and very good looking. He said that he is really glad that we are getting to see Eric as more than a villain. But he said don’t expect him to go too soft and laughed.

sent in by Linda, thanks!

French review of "Little New York"

translated by Babelfish and Bing --, 7.22.09

The argument: Sully, clearer of septic tanks and future father, is very ready to ensure the future of his son. Jasper, a modest grocer, has a very important quality in the eyes of the mafia he works for, which is compelled and forced: he is deaf-mute. Parmie Tarzo, head of the local mafia, would be seen eliminating competition. All three live in Staten Island, under the overwhelming shadow of Manhattan. Their paths will cross, a presumption for the worse...

Our opinion: Difficult to live in the shade of a city like New York. It is however the daily batch of the inhabitants of Staten Island, an island which was a long time the dustbin of Large Apple, since it also allowed the development of the Mafia. James De Monaco's film perfectly draws the outlines of the inferiority complex of this island society. Different paths of the three main characters join this point, namely to check out their conditions to finally exist in the eyes of the "real" world embodied by Manhattan successfully. New York is their goal, their motivation, their anchor to give up. Each looks to the other side in silence, their gaze full of expectations before taking action. For them, Staten Island is only the entryway. You survive or die.

With the image of this shifted island, the motivations of the characters appear absurd and touch us by their naivete, marked with a profound melancholy. Between the gangster who wants to beat the world records of apnea then to save the forest, the young cleaner of septic tanks who wishes to establish genes of intelligence of his wife's fetus, the old dumb deaf person who has played races for 30 years but does not know what to do once he has earned. All this gives rise to little trivial scenes highlighted by the slow rhythm as in the whodunnits of Fargo of the Coen Brothers or a simple plot of Sam Raimi.

Only one problem with this original score: the narrative structure is a little too well tied up, so much that one guesses the course of the events easily.

Ah yes, in fact, Vincent D'Onofrio is great. But you knew that already, didn't you?

Thanks MarieDeFrance!

The Irishman: Cleveland mob film

WBNX Blog, 7.7.09

Vincent D’Onofrio has seen his share of mob stories during eight seasons on Law & Order: Criminal Intent, but in his latest role he channels a real-life crime lord from the recent La Cosa Nostra era in Cleveland. Folks under 40 may be stunned to learn about the surreal underworld factions that ruled the Rock & Roll Capital as far back as the 1920s through the mid-1980s. We’re talking rackets, labor, godfathers, hitmen…and in 1976 alone, 36 bomb explosions throughout the city. Much of Cleveland’s organized crime history is documented by area lawman/author Rick Porrello in To Kill The Irishman: The War That Crippled the Mafia. His revealing book finally comes to the big-screen next year as The Irishman, which just finished filming in Detroit—where the bleak urban landscape simulated the local scene of a quarter-century ago. The title character refers to Danny Greene, the brash Irish-American mob boss whose rivalry with the local Italian mafia provoked a countrywide turf war, ultimately ending with Greene’s assassination and several high-ranking crime family members turning government informants. D’Onofrio portrays ruthless John Nardi, a rebel Italian who took Greene under his wing. Clevelanders will recognize many of the key players’ names in this infamous chapter of local history. The sprawling all-star cast features Ray Stevenson as Greene; plus Val Kilmer, Christopher Walken, Paul Sorvino and Linda Cardellini. Sound like a film…you can’t refuse?
