    Two Films Take the Alternate Route - On Purpose!

    It is very likely that a story profiling films being released via "alternative" distribution will be redundant and moot. Perhaps that will be the case very soon, but for now it is fairly new territory. With two films premiering Monday at a non-theater near you, the future is happening now. Liberatio...

    Great Dane: Paprika Steen On Her "Applause"

    Danish director Martin Pieter Zandvliet's "Applause" is a film that seems to have gotten lost in the Toronto International Film Festival near-300 film deep sea. Which is a shame as the film - which had its North American premiere at the fest - is quite notable, particularly for its intense, stripped...

    Jane Campion: "I thought of it as an updated 'Romeo and Juliet' story"

    "He was curious what it is to be human and have imagination, and he realized his consciousness. You don't always achieve that level in a full lifetime," said Oscar-winning writer/director Jane Campion ("The Piano") to indieWIRE earlier this Summer. Campion was referring to early 19th century English poet, John Keats, whose secret love affair with outspoken fashion student Fanny Brawne, is the nexus of her latest feature, "Bright Star," which screened at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this week and opens theatrically Friday. "People's life expectations weren't long, and people then realized that life and death were more quick,...

    cinemadaily | John Huston's "Fat City" Re-enters the Ring

    "In production during the period when the existential road film and the hippie western represented the height of Hollywood maverick-ism, John Huston's 1972 'Fat City' was a critical hit—hailed then as the 66-year-old's comeback and obvious now as the rejuvenated director's contribution to the New Wave zeitgeist," writes J. Hoberman in the Village Voice. "Adapted by Leonard Gardner from his first novel, 'Fat City' is a laconic, downbeat tale about a washed-up, hard-drinking boxer (Stacy Keach) who encounters and briefly sponsors a younger version of himself (Jeff Bridges), obviously destined for comparable failure." The film begins a two week ...
