    Small Screen | Jarmusch on Criterion, Doc Favs "Collapse," "Burma VJ," "Gasland" in the Living Room

    Writing in 1989, the New York Times' Vincent Canby said of Jim Jarmusch's then new film, "Mr. Jarmusch's 'Mystery Train,' though photographed in bright, primary colors by Robby Muller, has the same kind of dour, discordant charm that characterized 'Stranger Than Paradise.' It's the best thing Mr. Jarmusch has done to date...The curious thing about this Jarmusch film is that although he is not considered to be strong on plots, the narrative line of ''Mystery Train'' is both brilliantly funny and subtle." Today, the film gets a Criterion Collection release. Included in the Criterion package is a hearty excerpt from a doc about Screamin' Jay H...

    LAFF '10 | Director Brett Haley on his Crewless Film "The New Year"

    "With a breakout performance from Trieste Kelly Dunn, Brett Haley’s note-perfect directorial debut is a quiet revelation. Dunn plays Sunny, who left school when her father fell ill and returned to her suburban Florida hometown to care for him. That was two and a half years ago. Today, her life still on pause, she watches the world go by from behind the shoe rental counter of the local bowling alley and tells herself that she’s content. But when a former high school rival returns to town for the Christmas holiday, his presence prompts her to reconsider what she wants—and needs—to do for herself. There is a gentle sadness running through The N...

    LAFF '10 | Director Pernille Fischer Christensen On Her "Family"

    Pernille Fischer Christensen's "A Family" (En Familie) tells the story of Ditte - who has been a dutiful and adoring daughter all her life, the darling of her charismatic father's eye. It's been a privileged life too, for the Rheinwald family has built its fortune as master bakers—selected by the royal family as purveyors of bread to the Danish crown. In this intimate and powerful family saga, Ditte's devotion to her father is tested when she's offered her dream job as a curator for a New York art gallery just as her recently remarried father falls ill and asks her to take over the family business.
