Extractions: Home Monster's ball Nella Georgia ancora razzista, calda e piena di gente col fucile, una storia d'amore quantomeno atipica fra una donna nera che ha perso marito (giustiziato) e figlio (investito) e un uomo bianco con una storia familiare di razzismo e brutalità alle spalle. L'uomo (Billy Bob Thornton) fa la guardia carceraria nel braccio della morte, e guardacaso e` proprio l'individuo che ha organizzato gli ultimi istanti di vita del marito della donna (lei è Halle Berry). Il film è bello; questo non credo si possa mettere in discussione. E` dotato di una magnificenza visiva quasi irritante: dissolvenze incrociate con effetto onirico; contrasti al massimo e grandangoli che restituiscono immediatamente l'atmosfera torrida della Georgia; teleobiettivi ravvicinati quando si tratta di dipingere l'interiorità dei personaggi. Forster ci sa fare e lo sa bene. L'inizio addirittura, onirico, ricorda "La promessa". La musica e` perfetta, non invade ma accompagna e suggerisce, e integra le immagini. E tutto cio` senza contare che gli attori sono al top. Anzi di piu`. Thornton da il meglio di se', cane bastonato, Bogey dopoguerra, americano che di piu` non si puo`; Halle Berry e` straordinariamente bella, affascinante nella sua condizione da subproletaria; maiuscolo Peter Boyle (il mostro di Frankenstein Junior, fra l'altro!) nella parte del vecchio padre invalido, razzista, cattivo, arido. Oscar alla Berry meritatissimo. Critica sociale a piene mani: la pena di morte ripresa in tutto il suo orrore (ma un tantino insistito ed eccessivo, come in "Dancer in the Dark" per esempio); il razzismo come colpa dei padri che ricade sui figli a catena; la stessa puttana per due generazioni di poveracci; cibo orribile, grasso, disgustoso, che tutti mangiano a profusione.
Gothika - CineFile.biz Recensione del film di Mathieu Kassovitz con halle berry. A cura di Michela Bernardinello. http://www.cinefile.biz/gothika.htm
Extractions: Tralasciando archi a sesto acuto e volte a ogiva, la seconda definizione, pur se concisa, è quella che ben si sposa con lo spirito - e scusate il gioco di parole - della pellicola diretta dal francese Mathieu Kassovitz (miglior regia al Festival di Cannes del 1995 con "L'odio") e prodotta dalla Dark Castle di Joel Silver e Robert Zemeckis. Miranda Grey (Halle Berry), psichiatra nel manicomio criminale di Woodward diretto dal di lei marito (Charles Dutton, " La fortuna di Cookie ", "Black Dog"), è convinta di sapere meglio di chiunque altro quale sia la linea di demarcazione tra pazzia e normalità, cosa sia razionale e cosa no. Competente ed equilibrata, vive con dedizione la sua missione in mezzo a menti pericolosamente disturbate, conscia di potersi ritrovare ogni sera dalla parte "giusta" del vetro, e ritornare alla sua vita regolare. Con una professione avviata e un matrimonio perfetto, è convinta di aver raggiunto il suo equilibrio fisico e mentale. Ma quando il marito viene barbaramente assassinato, tutte le prove conducono a lei.

Certainly, this has been one of the challenges Halle Berry has faced in her career the fact that she's so unbelievably beautiful that one automatically assumes she must be as model-stupid as she is model-pretty. Granted, the handicap (or, really, the "handicap") of otherworldly physical beauty has not been the only speed bump on Berry's road to success. There's the fact that she started her career on a short-lived teeny-bopper sitcom (the

(InStyle) The name's Bond. Jinx Bond. At least it should be. "She's the female Bond," Halle Berry has said about her character, the single-name Jinx, in the latest 007 installment, "Die Another Day." "She's called Jinx because she was born on Friday the 13th, but I don't think she has much bad luck," says hairstylist Sterfon Demings. "She's stunning, and she really kicks butt." The character is a knife-thrower not your typical Bond bombshell. That's why the Oscar-winning Revlon spokeswoman vetoed bombshell hair. "Halle didn't want long, flowy hair. Her hair is short and easy to deal with. Too much would have engulfed her," says Demings. "Plus short hair is confident, and confident is sexy." Looks like Jinx is definitely tressed to kill. Leaving alone the short layers on the bottom, Demings used a curling iron near the roots of longer top layers for some lift. In keeping with Jinx's tough-girl personality, he added spikes by applying a pea-size dollop of Bumble and Bumble styling wax onto one-inch sections and twisting them upward. For softness he left the bangs smooth and flat.

Extractions: If I'm not dead by Monday morning, I'll put a stop payment on that check. The comic premise of a man eschewing the usual lies and daily doublespeak in favor of telling the truth, regardless of the consequences, has been used to great effect before. In "Crazy People", Dudley Moore played an advertising executive who decides to create brutally honest advertising slogans, and in " Liar Lair ", Jim Carrey was a lawyer who had to survive an entire day without saying a lie. "Bulworth", the latest political satire to hit the theaters this year, after " Wag the Dog " and " Primary Colors ", uses this 'truth be damned' premise to make director Warren Beatty's decidedly left-wing views more palatable for mainstream audiences. I believe that welfare should be a hand-up, not a hand-down. It is 1996, and the California Primaries are rapidly approaching, and the incumbent Senator for the state of California, Jay Billington Bulworth (Beatty), is up for re-election. As he sits in his office alone, watching a tape of his numerous television advertisements, he cannot help but feel disgusted as he watches his on-screen persona utter tirades against welfare, affirmative action, and the poor. He is disillusioned by what he has become instead of the former idealist who stood next to the great civil rights advocates of the Sixites, he is now a Democrat spouting Republican neo-conservative dogma. Unable to see any future for himself after the election, Bulworth decides to commit suicide by having a price put on his head, which will leave $10 million of insurance money for his daughter.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) Halle Berry was taken to a hospital after colliding with a piece of set equipment while filming a running scene for "Catwoman" but is now back at work, production spokesman Joe Everett said. The accident was minor, Everett said Tuesday, denying reports that the Oscar-winning "Monster's Ball" actress was hit in the head with a microphone boom and spent six hours in a hospital waiting room. "She had to maneuver past a piece of equipment, a set piece, and she didn't quite run past it, but she's just fine," he said. "She was taken to hospital Saturday night, treated and released and was at work again Monday morning." Berry, 35, broke her arm last year while shooting "Gothika" in Montreal and injured her eye on the set of "Die Another Day."

Extractions: Halle Maria Berry est née le 14 août 1968 à Cleveland, Etats-Unis, d'un père noir américain et d'une mère américaine. Après le divorce de leurs parents, Halle et sa sur aînée Heidi sont élevées par leur mère Judith, infirmière dans un hôpital psychiatrique. La vie n'est pas facile pour les trois femmes et habiter dans un quartier blanc de la banlieue de Cleveland avec une peau foncée est une épreuve supplémentaire. C'est justement cette couleur de peau qui motive Halle Berry à s'en sortir, elle veut devenir actrice. Cheerleader et rédactrice du journal de son lycée, elle est élue reine de sa promo. En 1985, son petit ami l'inscrit au concours de Miss Teen Ohio. Sans surprise, Halle remporte le titre. Elle ne s'arrête pas là, elle participe à de nombreux concours dont ceux de Miss Teen All American et Miss USA. En 1986, elle entre au collège de Cleveland et étudie le journalisme télévisé, mais ne passe pas ses examens car elle préfère s'engager dans une carrière de mannequin et commence à étudier l'art dramatique à Chicago.
Extractions: (CNN) After several roles in which she was often dismissed as more pretty face than actress, Halle Berry is finally gaining respect for her craft. Indeed, she's up for a best actress Oscar for her role in "Monster's Ball." But Berry's looks have always been combined with a bright intellect and a solid determination. She was an honor society member at her Cleveland, Ohio, high school and was elected both prom queen and class president. And yes, she was also a cheerleader. It was her beauty that gave Berry her first break when, at the age of 17, she won the Miss Teen All-American pageant. In 1985, she became Miss Ohio and first runner-up in the Miss USA pageant. She broke into acting with the 1989 TV series "Living Dolls," but her big break came when she was cast by director Spike Lee as a crack addict in his 1991 film "Jungle Fever." Other roles followed, and she began to be taken truly seriously by the powers-that-be with her role opposite Warren Beatty in "Bulworth" (1998), then with a Golden Globe-winning performance in the title role of the made-for-cable TV movie "Introducing Dorothy Dandridge."
