IndiePix, Celebrating Independent Film

New Years Film Collection

BROKEN ENGLISH stars Parker Posey as Nora Wilder, a thirtysomething whose disastrous dating experiences in the Big Apple have put her on the verge of giving up all hope when it comes to love and happiness. Until one fateful New Year's Eve when a visiting Frenchman (Melvil Poupaud) swoops in. Thanks to fine camera work and especially riveting musical touches, Zoe Cassavetes brilliantly keeps the audience in Nora's head at all times, filling viewers with the same doubts on what the outcome will be until the very last frame.

In FOUR ROOMS, four different short films, two of which are directed by Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez, are set in a hotel on New Year's Eve. New bellboy Ted is in for a wild night, as the inhabitants of four rooms enmesh him in some strange and potentially horrific goings-on. This is not quite the New Year's Eve celebration that he expected. Featuring Tim Roth, Madonna, Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek, Jennifer Beals, and Marisa Tomei.

STARSTRUCK is a light, frothy pop-culture musical comedy from Australia, where Jackie (Jo Kennedy) dreams of becoming a singing star hinge on a major talent competition to be held on New Year's Eve. If Jackie wins, her career is assured, and the $25,000 grand prize. STARSTRUCK plays like a mid-1980s "New Wave" variation on an old "Let's Put On A Show!" teenage musical, with tunes by Phil Judd and Tim Finn of the popular New Zealand band Split Enz.

The second film in Federico Fellini's trilogy of loneliness, IL BIDONE is a poignant and heartbreaking portrait of an aging man's redemption from a life of crime and deception.Fellini uses the recurrent imagery of elevation: Carlo calls his devoted wife, Iris, who waves back to him from their upper floor apartment; Augusto, Carlo, and Iris ascend the stairs to attend a New Year's Eve party organized by a career criminal who has amassed his fortune from the art of the swindle. IL BIDONE is a haunting examination of a misguided existence, a profoundly moving testament of the innate goodness of the human soul.
