The Man Is Chan

BySalim Garami

What's good?

I just wanted to tie upour celebration of Jackie Chan's quintessentialPolice StoryandPolice Story 2finding their way into the esteemed catalog of the Criterion Collectionby recognizing the other thing he's best known for besides kicking fools in the face: pre-emptively auditioning for the Jackass crew by partaking in some of the most dangerous stunts recorded on film.Safety is for mere mortals as far as Chan is concerned and he is probably convinced that if any characters are ever killed on-screen in a movie,then the actor themself must also be killed for versimilitude.

Not really,but much like his fight choreography,the sort of discipline and ambition Chan displays on screen in order to wow audiences around the world is the kind that pays off a lifetime of painful falls and crashes.He mirrors his own character's resilience to obstacles and defies fear and death with his stuntwork.

Let's get that listing over with so we can watch some more Jackie Chan.

Doc Corner: From the Chiffon Jungle to the Great Outdoors at DOC NYC

Last weekwe looked at a group of films among the mammoth collection of titles playing Doc NYC.The festival continues and so we're looking at a few more films,taking a sort of cinematic road trip from the big city,down the highway to the Rocky Mountains and then back again.

The "chiffon jungle"is what the subject of Otis Mass' debut film,The Incomparable Rose Hartman,a fashion and pop culture photographer whose images are as iconic as they are striking,labels her home of New York City.A place where fashion is as integral to daily life as breath is to life.Feel to free disagree,but as the first person to understand the appeal of the decadent backstage of celebrity life and master it into something truly artful,Hartman soon built a reputation that put her subjects at ease and made her none synonymous with New York's cultural scene in a more extravagant way than the likes of Bill Cunningham.Whether she was photographing the models backstage and on the runways of  Donna Karen,Caroline Herrera or Halston,or capturing the more candid,celebratory side of celebrities like Jerry Hall,Andy Warhol,Grace Jones,Liza Minnelli and Cher at Studio 54,her work is justifiably as iconic as it is extraordinary...
