Keir and Gary at The Toronto International Film Festival With “2001”
  Posted By: keir dullea online |      No Comments

A wonderful Q&A with Keir and Gary at the TIFF for a retrospective on the films of Stanley Kubrick focusing in on 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY. I love the interplay between them. It’s so natural and so cute of two men who have been friends forever. Once again Keir tells us about his airlock scene, and the dialogue Stanley didn’t use in the film. I loved Keir’s comment about Alzheimer’s. Proves at 78 he’s still got his faculties all in place. I just adored this talk. Thanks to my home country of Canada and the great city of Toronto for hosting this and for inviting two of the most underrated actors alive to discuss this great film. Now if they could only do a respective of the films of Ridley Scott, I’d be real happy. The did briefly mention Keir’s reprisal of Dave Bowman in the Peter Hayams sequel 2010: ODYSSEY TWO. My only gripe would have to be the Q&A wasn’t long enough. Of course I’m a little bit selfish. I could listen to Keir speak non-top. I love his voice.

Mark Your Calendars :: Keir & Gary Appearance
  Posted By: keir dullea online |      No Comments

Yep, as the title says. Keir and Gary are going to be making an appearance on behalf of 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY. Where? At the Toronto International Film Festival. Keir and Gary will introduce the film and host a Q&A afterwards. I’m not sure of the venue, yet, but when I finally find out I’ll either edit this post or make a new one if this one has moved down. I do know the date is 01 November, 2014 at 2:00 PM. Again, not sure of the location…but I know it’s somewhere in the big T.O. That’s Toronto for those not initiated with the Canadian sensibility. Apparently this is part of a week long celebration at TIFF Cinematheque to honour the film and its amazing director, Stanley Kubrick. I’ll keep you posted as the event comes up. I won’t be able to attend, unfortunately my personal life sort of precludes that. Here’s some of the info.

2001: A Space Odyssey introduced by Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood

2001: A Space Odyssey

Directed by Stanley Kubrick
(PG)

Part of 2001: A Space Odyssey introduced by Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood

One of the most revered films of all time, Stanley Kubrick’s science-fiction masterpiece about a doomed intergalactic mission is still “the ultimate trip.”

“The ultimate trip,” Kubrick’s science-fiction masterpiece has survived innumerable parodies, references and rip-offs with its awe-inspiring power intact. Tracing a cosmic mystery from the dawn of mankind to the farthest reaches of time and space, 2001 chronicles an intergalactic mission to find the origin of a mysterious black monolith discovered by American astronauts on the moon — a mission complicated when the ship’s renegade computer HAL 9000 decides that its human cargo is inadequate to carry out such an important task. When they realize that HAL is turning on them, astronauts Dave Bowman (Keir Dullea) and Frank Poole (Gary Lockwood) have to outwit the omniscient machine to survive. Featuring spectacular special effects by Douglas Trumbull, 2001 pointedly speculates on what it means to be human in an age dominated by technology, and what the next stage of human evolution could potentially be.

Our week-long engagement of 2001: A Space Odyssey plays in conjunction with the TIFF Cinematheque retrospective Stanley Kubrick: A Cinematic Odyssey.

“Infinitely, Polar Bear” Opening At The TIFF, Toronto International Film Festival
  Posted By: keir dullea online |      2 Comments

The Toronto International Film Festival or as it’s known up here North of the border, TIFF, is in full swing and news comes that Keir’s film INFINITELY, POLAR BEAR is opening. The film stars Mark Ruffalo as Keir’s son. From the reviews I’ve heard on the radio they’ve said this film is excellent and Keir’s one scene is a heart breaker. Given my previous post I suppose it was too much to ask for Keir to attend? Likely. A girl can dream.

Gala Presentations | USA | Maya Forbes | 88 minutes
Infinitely Polar Bear

A loving husband and father struggling with manic depression (Mark Ruffalo) is forced to raise his two young daughters on his own, in this moving and inspirational drama based on writer-director Maya Forbes’ own childhood experiences.

Inspired by writer-director Maya Forbes’s own childhood, this lovingly detailed, bittersweet debut careens between laughter and anxiety as it invites us into a singular family’s chaotic home.

Raising a family isn’t easy for anyone, but the Stuarts are a little more challenged than your average parents. Cameron Stuart (Mark Ruffalo, also appearing at the Festival in Foxcatcher) has suffered a nervous breakdown and been diagnosed with manic depression, a highly stigmatized label that, in 1978 Boston, renders him virtually unemployable. Maggie Stuart (Zoe Saldana) works hard but can’t quite make ends meet. They are highly educated and completely broke. They also have two precocious young daughters to care for.

A solution presents itself, but with it come unnerving risks: Maggie accepts a scholarship to pursue her business degree in New York, which means leaving Faith and Amelia in Boston — and solely in the hands of their father. Infinitely Polar Bear chronicles the eighteen-month period in which the aggressively gregarious, always unpredictable Cameron struggles to cope with his condition and become a viable single parent to the little girls he so clearly loves.

Humour and heartbreak alike are on offer as we witness Cameron stumble in his attempts to be a good neighbour and engaged father while attending to his wildly varying moods and impulses. For every misstep, there is evidence of Cameron’s fierce love, and Ruffalo performs the remarkable feat of keeping his character utterly sympathetic even in his darkest, most irresponsible moments. We can see plenty of problems and peril in the Stuart family, but, if we look closer, we can also see their wondrous gifts.
