Oliver Stone Pops into PIFF

 
BUSAN, South Korea -- In Oliver Stone’s world, there are culprits and there are villains pulling the strings somewhere or another. In the case of his latest movie, the remake of the film, “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps”, the bad guys are the bankers.

These were words uttered by the Academy Award director during his press conference at the Grand Hotel in Haeundae Thursday afternoon.

And So it Ends. PIFF Wraps up its 15th Year

BUSAN, South Korea -  And so it ends. The 15th Pusan International Film Festival came to a close Friday night with another packed house who came to watch the closing ceremonies and the final film “Camellia”, a Korean/Japanese/Thailand co-production shot in Busan.

Willem Dafoe, the Canadians, AP & Trying to Remember

BUSAN, South Korea - The evening started off simply enough. Chevy and I in front of the Family Mart training him how to record video with my camera. This may seem elementary but, as some of you may remember, it was Chevy who I handed my camera to in the Lotte Giant’s dugout in hopes of getting a good photo of myself and baseball legend, Lee Dae Ho. Chevy took a choice shot of our stomachs, totally cutting out our faces--you can understand my concern as we prepared to go to the Willem Dafoe press conference.

Day Two: From Morning til’ Morning

 
BUSAN, South Korea -- The second day of the Pusan International Film Festival was a busy one: New Jurors Press Conference at 10 a.m., Won Bin and the Adjusshi cast at noon, Chinese actress Tang Wei and Hyun Bin at 4 p.m., American actor Willem Defoe at 6:30 and finally, Indian beauty Aishwariya Rai and crew at 8:30 p.m.

That, is a full day at PIFF.

While covering the event, the between press conferences is the “long wait”. Waiting for hopefully an on-time guest, or waiting for a hopeful interesting interview.
