Perhaps a release would have been better-timed around prime World Cup fever, but it looks like Rio, I Love You will be arriving in its native city this September and today the first trailers have landed. Following up the metropolis-centered projects Paris, je t’aime and New York, I Love You, the producers head to Brazil’s second-largest city for this new iteration of the anthology series.
Featuring direction from Fernando Meirelles (City of God), Carlos Saldanha (Ice Age, Rio), Im Sang-soo (The Housemaid), Stephan Elliott (Easy Virtue), Paolo Sorrentino (The Great Beauty), Guillermo Arriaga (Babel), Andrucha Waddington (Party Crashers), Nadine Labaki (Where Do We Go Now?), José Padilha (RoboCop, Elite Squad), and John Turturro (Fading Gigolo), the ten segments star the likes of Vincent Cassel, Rodrigo Santoro, Jason Isaacs, Ryan Kwanten, Emily Mortimer, Harvey Keitel, and more.
Judging from this preview, it looks to be a vibrant, energetic love letter to the city, and it’ll be nice to see directors such as Meirelles and Padilha return to the location. While no U.S. release is in the works yet, it’s safe bet it’ll be touring the fall festivals this year. Check out the English language-centered preview below, along with a slightly different international version.

In the case of evaluating David Cronenberg, — or at least forming the sort of career narrative seemingly essential to auteurist analysis — it’s inevitable to propose something of a rupture within his oeuvre: the very evident graduation from grindhouse to arthouse, and, with it, an ascension from body to mind. What dictated these labels […]

Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration. There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
