Coming this week to the Sundance Kabuki Cinemas: Bay Area filmmakers Michael and Jeff Zimbalist take on the world of Colombian “narco-soccer” in a powerful story of both tragedy and hope in their new film, The Two Escobars.
The film, which opens on August 27 after hugely successful premiers at the Tribeca and Cannes film festivals, explores the seedy connections between the Colombian national soccer team and the drug cartels whose money made the team the star of South America, favored to win the 1994 World Cup.
The guy can’t help it -- in fact, he’d rather flaunt it. Tom Ford is a romantic. There, I’ve said it. The evidence is all over the loving, lingered-on, sleek surfaces of A Single Man, Ford’s directorial debut. Don’t mistake this for the Coen Brothers’ A Serious Man -- between these two and the multitude of films with Nine in their title, one idly wonders whether there’s such a thing as far too many people being on the same page -- though A Single Man is clearly one of its kind.
