    Review: 'Bellflower' A Burnt-Out, Bloody, Brave Debut

    Fresh from a warm reception at Sundance, Evan Glodell’s “Bellflower” arrives as a turbo charged indictment of male adolescent fantasy and a biting critique of misplaced machismo. A burnt-out, bloody, brave debut, “Bellflower” rides out the fallout from a relationship to a stomach-churning conclusion…or does it? It’s a fine balancing act, as Glodell’s Woodrow charms the live wire Milly (Jessie Wiseman), loses her, and then rages – first impotently, then with the aid of a flamethrower and Medusa, a muscle car from hell.

    Cannes Sensation 'The Artist' To Make North American Premiere At Montreal World Film Festival

    The world of international film festivals is one of stature, as organizers and curators from Cannes to Toronto to Melbourne to beyond jockey and jostle for position, hoping to snag the big premieres that will add star power and prestige to their city and event. The way it generally falls is that Cannes, Venice and Toronto are at the top of the heap with everyone else picking up the remainders. In that vein, the Montreal World Film Festival has struggled for years. Certainly, the city is not wanting in film festivals with FIFA, Fantasia, Festival du Nouveau Cinema and Cinemania crowding up the calendar throughout the year and frankly, MWFF has been somewhat left behind in recent iterations. Certainly not as glamorous as TIFF and mostly centered around also-rans from other festivals, it has struggled to be relevant, but this year could see a big change in momentum.

    The Vitaphone Project Turns 20

    Twenty years ago, five avid collectors of vintage records, who also happened to be old-movie buffs, created an informal organization called The Vitaphone Project. Their goal was to pool (and catalogue) their resources, namely 16-inch soundtrack recordings for Warner Bros’ Vitaphone short-subjects of the late 1920s and early 1930s, and find archives that held the corresponding 35mm negatives. In other words, they wanted to make some long-lost short subjects “whole” again. They have succeeded beyond their wildest expectations—and we have been the lucky beneficiaries.

With TIFF and Venice now just around the corner, we presume that his first feature film in six years will soon be added to the lineups of one or both festivals, as the press train is now beginning to pick up some major steam. Following news over the weekend that Sigur Rós frontman Jónsi will be scoring the film, a batch of new images have emerged for the upcoming dramedy.
