Middletown: Anchorage Film Festival review (Dec 2006)

Two brothers clash over views in Irish 'Middletown'

 

In James Joyce's memorable phrase (from his autobiographical novel "Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man"), the Irish are essentially a "priest-ridden race."

A kindred sentiment seems to emerge in "Middletown," an Anchorage International Film Festival feature that screens for its final time tonight at Fireweed Theatre.

But instead of taking the Catholic Church to task -- as Joyce's fictional father did in "Portrait" -- director Brian Kirk shines his spotlight on the lot of poor Protestants in Northern Ireland.

Yamit Mamo sings for Death at a Funeral

Yamit Mamo wrote in her myspace blog that she recorded for the title track of Death at a Funeral.

In her own words:

Anyway, lets begin.. Today [December 7, 2006], I recorded at the legendary Air Studios for the very first time. That in itself, just an amazing experience.. However, thats not all, noooo!

I actually went in there to record the title track of a new British film, Death at a Funeral.. I just dont know what else to say but Wow really.. I had an incredible day, met a whole bunch of insanely talented people and to top it all off, I was directed by Frank Oz (the man of many voices including Yoda, Miss Piggy, Fuzzy Bear and Elmo).
