    indieWIRE INTERVIEW | "Full Grown Men" Director David Munro

    The arrival of "Full Grown Men" in limited release this week marks a belated emergence for a film not unlike the delayed maturity of the film's downtrodden protagonist. Directed by David Munro, "Full Grown Men" (the winner of this year's indieWIRE: Undiscovered Gems audience award, sponsored by Sundance Channel and presented by The New York Times and Emerging Pictures) tracks the psychological progress of Alby (Matt McGrath), a thirty-year-old stargazer woefully nostalgic for his salad days. Abandoning his wife before the opening credits, Alby finds his old childhood pal Elias (Judah Friedlander of "30 Rock") and together they take a road tri...

    DISPATCH FROM MARYLAND | Silverdocs: Telling the Truth

    If there's an aesthetic lesson conveyed by the premieres at AFI Silverdocs this year, it's that cinema verite continues to thrive -- and the classical approach to documentary filmmaking hasn't frayed with age. Not that it had been showing signs of a slow demise, but the ongoing talk of meager box office prospects for the form -- coupled with Herzogian declarations of "ecstatic truth" and projects like "Chicago 10" trying to take the practice in new directions -- suggested a demand for evolution that doesn't actually exist. As it turns out, great stories work when they're told well. That shouldn't come as a surprise, but last year's oft-repeat...

    DISPATCH FROM NANTUCKET | Meg's Orgasm, Late Night Storytelling and Fest Faves on an Enchanted Isle

    As if programmed by the staff itself, the first sign of a cloud in four days hit the shores of Nantucket Island hours before its 13th festival was set to close Sunday night with the screening of Jonathan Levine's "The Wackness." Prior to that, perfect weather helped set the scene for what turned out...

    DISPATCH FROM LOS ANGELES | Unleashing the Film Geek Within

    "This is great. I'm going to geek out here for a second," muttered Los Angeles Film Festival director Richard Raddon last Thursday night as an aside in his introduction for the soon-to-be-famous Russian sci-fi maestro Timur Bekmambetov. It was just an offhanded quip, but truer words could not have spoken for the official opening ceremonies for the 2008 LAFF, a movie geek's paradise. Boasting an extremely diverse slate with everything from big studio blockbusters like Bekmambetov's stunning "Wanted" to low-budget, non-SAG narratives like Seth Packard's adorably indulgent "HottieBoombaLottie" to important documentaries like Sarah Friedland's be...
