Matt writes: I not too long ago had the nice privilege of interviewing filmmaker Rodrigo García about his new film, “Raymond & Ray,” in addition to his 2005 masterwork, “9 Lives,” which ranks amongst my favourite movies of all time. The latter consists of 9 quick tales, every filmed in a single steady take and centering on a girl as she reaches a pivotal second in her life. You possibly can learn my dialog with the director right here, and browse Roger Ebert’s overview of “9 Lives,” which is excerpted under, right here.

There’s notoriously not a marketplace for quick movies. You possibly can’t ebook them or promote them, it is unattainable to attempt to overview them (and moreover, the place can the readers see them?). However quick movies are a type with objective, simply as quick tales are. Some tales want solely introduce us to a personality or two and spend sufficient time with them for us to find one thing about their natures, and maybe our natures. The best quick story writers, like William Trevor and Alice Munro, can awe us; their tales are quick however not small.

Right here Rodrigo García does the identical factor. The son of the novelist Gabriel Garcia Marquez, he has the identical love for his characters, and though his tales are all (aside from one) practical, he shares his father’s appreciation for the methods lives interweave and we contact one another even when we’re strangers. A film like this, with the looks of latest characters and conditions, focuses us; we watch extra intently, as a result of it can be crucial what occurs. These characters aren’t going to get bailed out with 110 minutes of plot. Their lives have reached a turning level right here and now, and what they do have to be finished right here and now, or perpetually go unknown.
