I was invited to the opening of Werewolf Ninja Philosopher. and I must say it was a delightful surprise. The cinematography was seamless and controlled with a style that's personally Sujewa Ekanayake's.


It had an intelligence to it with long scenes that held your attention much in the way of film noir, and the acting was consistent. The Werewolf himself was marvelous.  I was amazed that I was willing to watch a Ninja walk down the streets of New York and Brooklyn.
There were marvelous moments of philosophical asides when Werewolf was speaking into his cell phone. There were moments of cutaways to a strange and mysterious woman sitting in the park, a great foil.
I will say that it was well worth the evening. The music cutting was controlled and crafted, never overdone.  There were moments when it needed to be there…

Pinnland Empire review of Amir Motlagh's new feature Three Worlds, links to 4 Motlagh films - Three Worlds, MAN, Canyon, Whale

From recent Pinnland Empire blog review of Amir Motlagh's new feature Three Worlds -

"Los Angeles is a strange place with its own unique set of rules (much like any popular city). Filmmaker Amir Motlagh taps in to this with his latest feature; Three Worlds - a story that mixes semi-personal journal entries with the existential drama found in the works of Terrence Malick or even Shane Curruth (Upstream Color to be specific). This is also an important film about cultural pride and the impact of therapy."

The visual work of LA’s own Amir Motlagh is something rivaled only by that of the more auditory variety. Artists come in all capacities and mediums. In a place like Los Angeles, the amount to choose from becomes so plentiful that standing out can be the first and last key step of one’s career. That said, it’s pretty safe to admit that the filmmaker shown off here has done just that. Matching a level of creativity with an equal amount of quality, the films of Motlagh have always fluctuated in style, tone and subject matter. While some tend to be stand alone pieces of cinema, others also have an extra utility attached to their existence. In this case, that utility I’m speaking of is that of the musician’s preference. In recent years, the idea of releasing a full length album or E.P. through the means of a visual counterpoint has become quite popular a…
