    Review: 'Dirty Girl' With Juno Temple Is All Attitude & No Heart

    If there's one thing "Dirty Girl" has going for it -- and it's made abundantly clear even before the glittery title card, spelled out in swoopy, neon-lit letters like the name of a roller disco -- it's that it has attitude.

    Can A Couple Truly Collaborate Creatively (And Survive?)

    Jealousy is great fodder for creation. Our hunger for love puts stress on us even once we have found it, earned it, and secured it. Love is both incredibly deep and incredibly delicate. It is strong and it is fragile. We can make movies about love until the end of time, and not even scratch the surface.Indie & Truly Free Film are both currently awash in collaborative filmmaking teams. Some are siblings, some are friends, and at least one of them is a couple: Sophia Takal and Lawrence Michael Levine. When I saw Sophia's GREEN, I was incredibly impressed and moved. Not only does Takal tackle the subject of jealousy straight on, she does ...
