Delivering El Cantante
NEW YORK LATINO JOURNAL   
Saturday, August 11, 2007
ImageThe obsessive fanfare over “El Cantante,” the anticipated movie about Hector Lavoe, has been flooding email inboxes across the nation. The span of feedback from music industry insiders to nostalgic fans — as well as its relatively good box office performance — have created at least one consensus: the community is hungry to see more. Share your thoughts on "El Cantante."

Much Ado About Lavoe
RAFAEL MERINO CORTÉS   
Thursday, August 09, 2007
ImageWe have to imagine the curse of making a film based on a beloved icon whose fans, friends and detractors are still around. Can a “definitive” James Brown film be made any time soon? Unlikely. So the risk in ‘disappointing’ people when interpreting these multidimensional, larger-than-life figures on such a rich and complex medium as motion picture is inherent.

El Cantante de los Cantantes
SERY COLÓN   
Tuesday, August 07, 2007
ImageHector Lavoe unfortunately left us some time ago.  But the movie, "El Cantante," starring the very talented Marc Anthony, is like seeing him again at his highest form.  Marc Anthony personifies Lavoe with lucidity, and interprets his songs as only he can do and like Hector Lavoe (“The king of Punctuality”) did — with a lot of flavor, happiness, passion, desperation and pain.

RAFAEL MERINO CORTÉS   
Tuesday, July 24, 2007
ImageOf all the well-deserved hoopla surrounding this year’s festival, the premiere of “El Cantante,” the Leon Ichaso film about the legendary Puerto Rican singer, Hector Lavoe, will undoubtedly cause great commotion and bochinche leading up to the festival’s closing on July 29.

RAFAEL MERINO CORTÉS   
Friday, March 09, 2007
ImageThere are thousands of demonstrators in Latin America angry over President Bush’s visit; Brazilian President Lula da Silva has signed an ethanol fuel pact with the United States; President Hugo Chávez is steaming, leading demonstrators.

Pan’s Labyrinth
SERY COLÓN and RAFAEL MERINO CORTÉS   
Wednesday, January 03, 2007
ImageGuillermo del Toro brings a graceful, striking and thought- provoking gem to the silver screen. Pan’s Labyrinth is a dark and intimate fantasy of depth and detail that leads you through a maze of fear, courage and resolve. This is passionate, old-fashioned filmmaking with breathtaking visuals.

ALEJANDRO GONZÁLEZ IŃÁRRITU   
Thursday, October 26, 2006
ImageThe director of Amores Perros and 21 Grams talks about Babel, his third installment of family dramas set with backdrops of local and global violence, politics and economics. Gael García Bernal co-stars in this film that stems from “exile and the awareness of being an immigrant.”

ENRIQUE E. TORRES   
Monday, August 22, 2005
Image"The tide of the east is risin’
With people from every tribe
From China to Puerto Rico
We follow the same design
I travel this place with freedom
I sing to the moon and sky
I can’t stop the beast from roaming
The deepest fear my desire"
-- from "ONE BLOOD," by LILA DOWNS

Honor Her With Justice
RICK KEARNS-MORALES   
Saturday, August 13, 2005
ImageMy work is at odds with this climate. It's gotten to the point that my ticket gets marked as a "special" at the airport, my luggage is checked and re-checked. The last time they told me, “We can do this in private,” and I said, “No, I want everyone to see what you’re doing.”

750 Words About Cinema
ÁLEX DE LA IGLESIA   
Friday, August 12, 2005
Image Let's laugh at those who believe in something and let's celebrate once and for all the joyful nihilism!  If nothing makes sense, if world leaders are nothing but demented clowns and we are the sad audience of their grotesque performance, let's paint our faces and let's bring out the machine guns!

El Cuero Flojo
WALTER KROCHMAL   
Wednesday, June 15, 2005
ImageYou snicker at the multiple entendre, brain laboring upstream, ravaged by exposure to bad Spanish radio. Aha! You think: A column with tips for picking up cheap tricks! Ha! We don’t do cheap, and we may do sex, but that would be a different department. This column exists solely for us to wax wonkish on World Music, with forays into film and performance.

Academy Awards 2005: Only ‘Million Dollar’ Latinos Make It
PRENSA LATINA   
Monday, February 28, 2005
ImageThe Oscar ceremony, an “orgy of self- reverence,” according to New York Times writer Nick Madigan, did nothing new this year for those who know the Academy well. Latinos seldom get an award. Quality is not enough. (nag, nag, nag...)

Almodóvar Talks About His Bad Education
PEDRO ALMODÓVAR   
Thursday, December 16, 2004
Image"I am under the impression that the story has lived within me as an alien for a long time, and that it has been necessary to do fourteen other movies to get it to form. Once I am rid of it I feel moved, light and happy."

Yasmin Hernández: Our Struggle, and Spirit, In Living Color
RAFAEL MERINO CORTÉS   
Thursday, November 11, 2004

stuff "It is my opinion that as a Puerto Rican, knowing well that my identity has been very much shaped by more than 500 years of colonialism, any expression of mine must be of a political nature."
