    indieWIRE INTERVIEW | "Kurt Cobain: About a Son" Director AJ Schnack

    Director AJ Schnack's doc "Kurt Cobain: About a Son" is probably the closest thing to an autobiography by the former Nirvana lead singer as possible. The film draws upon a series of audiotaped conversations between Cobain and music writer Michael Azerrad over 1992 and 1993, recorded for Azerrad's bo...

    indieWIRE INTERVIEW | "Lust, Caution" Director Ang Lee

    There's no lack of buzz around "Lust, Caution," the latest provocation from Ang Lee. Though tepidly received by some Stateside reviewers, who found more caution than lust, it collected the Golden Lion in Venice (Lee's second in three years following "Brokeback Mountain"). "Lust" marks not only Lee's return to a Chinese-based milieu--with his trademark agility, he once again tackles a new genre, this time an erotic espionage thriller, with graphic sex scenes that won the film an NC-17 rating. No question, the film's steamy grappling might be hard to distinguish from pornography. But it could be argued those scenes play a crucial dramatic role-...

    Director Craig Zobel's "Great World of Sound" revolves around Martin (Pat Healy), who answers an ad to train as a record producer, where he's excited by the prospect of signing undiscovered artists. The company, called Great World of Sound, partners shy, unassuming Martin with the gregarious Clarence (Kene Holliday) and sends them on the road, visiting southern towns where the company has placed newspaper ads, and turning motels into makeshift audition studios. Though an unlikely duo, they sign more acts than anyone else at the company. But when Martin takes a special interest in a young girl's "New National Anthem," putting up his own money ...
