    indieWIRE INTERVIEW | "Beautiful Losers" Director Aaron Rose

    Aaron Rose and co-director Joshua Leonard's documentary "Beautiful Losers retrospectively celebrates a group of loose-knit American artists and creators. In the 1990s, these artists, including Margaret Kilgallen, Mike Mills, Barry McGee, Phil Frost, Chris Johanson, Harmony Korine, and Ed Templeton, many of them barely twenty-years old, began their careers by coming together and making art for the sole purpose of their enjoyment of doing so. After debuting at the 2008 SXSW Film Festival, "Beautiful Losers" opens in limited theatrical release this Friday, August 8 at the IFC Center in New York. indieWIRE talked to Rose about the film and is h...

    indieWIRE INTERVIEW | "Brideshead Revisited" Director Julian Jarrold

    [EDITOR'S NOTE: Miramax Films will open "Brideshead Revisited" Friday, July 25 in limited release.] Bringing "Brideshead Revisited" to the screen presented a trifecta of challenges. Director Julian Jarrold and screenwriters Andrew Davies and Jeremy Brock had to compress and reconfigure Evelyn Waugh's layered, elegiac novel, while finding a visual equivalent to convey its famously lyrical prose. In a work that Waugh conceived as a paean to the power of Catholicism they had to highlight themes that would chime with contemporary viewers. And most daunting, perhaps, they'd have to brave the enchantments, still potent after twenty-six years, of ...

    indieWIRE INTERVIEW | "American Teen" Director Nanette Burnstein

    From John Hughes to Judd Apatow, the plight of the American teen has never lacked appeal in popular culture. But even this steadfast truism doesn't make the concept for "American Teen" immediately salable. A nonfiction portrait of several prototypical seventeen year olds in Warsaw, Indiana, the movi...

    indieWIRE INTERVIEW | "Baghead" Co-directors Jay and Mark Duplass

    Mark and Jay Duplass recognize the irony of their setting. Sitting in a massive conference room in a Manhattan hotel, the brothers provide a strikingly informal contrast to the lavish decor. Shirts comfortably untucked, they toy around with a couple bruised apples and slovenly place their elbows on the table. It's a reasonable display of contentment. After premiering at the Sundance Film Festival in January, the sibling filmmakers' low budget sophomore feature, "Baghead," landed a generous distribution deal with Sony Pictures Classics (which opens the film theatrically in limited release Friday, July 25). The mini-major has flown them to New ...

    indieWIRE INTERVIEW | "Man on Wire" Director James Marsh and subject Philippe Petit

    [Editor's Note: Magnolia Pictures opens the film in limited release beginning Friday, July 25 in New York with a larger roll out in select cities August 8.] "Man on Wire" is the perfect example of matching doc director to doc subject. French tightrope walker and juggler Philippe Petit became world-famous when he walked between the two World Trade Center towers, then under construction, on August 7, 1974 -- a completely illegal if fantastic act that involved complex preparation and shook up New York City's police department. (He had to cross back and forth several times to avoid the cops.) Petit had already achieved artistic notoriety for his ...
