    indieWIRE INTERVIEW | "2 Days in Paris" Director Julie Delpy

    Julie Delpy is the thinking man's ideal Frenchwoman--at least in her screen persona of Celine, the enchantress she created in Richard Linklater's cult films, "Before Sunrise" and "Before Sunset." An etherial porcelain blonde, Celine is sexually knowing yet unthreatening; independent but vulnerable; articulate, principled and a bit flaky. Better yet, she has a way with a Nina Simone song (see final scene of "Before Sunset") that would have kept even a steadier husband than Jesse from flying home to his wife. Now with "2 Days in Paris" (opening August 10th by Samuel Goldwyn Films and Red Envelope) multi-hyphenate Delpy makes her bow as a filmma...

    indieWIRE INTERVIEW | "The Ten" Director David Wain

    Director David Wain's feature "The Ten" stars Jessica Alba, Gretchen Mol, Adam Brody, Paul Rudd, Liev Schreiber,Bobby Cannavale and Winona Ryder in "blasphemous comedic stories" inspired by the Biblical Ten Commandments. Each tale unfolds in a different style, but with characters and themes that overlap, as told by a narrator who, in turn, has his own moral problems. Wain has had a well-rounded career in film both in front and behind the camera. He has directed television including "The State" in the '90s in addition to writing for the series and others. And, in 2001 Wain's "Wet Hot American Summer" received a Gotham nomination. THINKFilm ope...

    indieWIRE INTERVIEW | "No End in Sight" Director Charles Ferguson

    Charles Ferguson's "No End in Sight" is another in a long line of important Iraq documentaries. But the film's precision, what the New York Times calls a "mathematical" indictment of the current administration, is what separates it as a closely observed, investigative piece. Ferguson answered some...

    indieWIRE INTERVIEW | "Moliere" Director Laurent Tirard

    With the ascent of President Nicholas Sarkozy -- who jogs, plays at French cowboy, and has a jones for things American -- the Gauls and the Yanks have entered a cautious entente cordiale. The coziness in the political arena is echoed on the cultural front this summer by Americans' love affair with French cinema. This holds true especially for the mainstream entertainments that find distribution here. Viewers can get their French fix without getting lost in arthouse longueurs, or pistol-whipped by such Cannes faves as Bruno Dumont's "Flandres," with its rutting couples and atrocities of war. Now from Sony Pictures Classics comes Laurent Tirar...

    indieWIRE INTERVIEW | "The Devil Came on Horseback" Co-director Annie Sundberg

    Directors Annie Sundberg and Ricki Stern's "The Devil Came on Horseback" exposes the tragedy taking place in Darfur as seen through the eyes of an American witness and who has since returned to the US to take action to stop it. Using the exclusive photographs and first hand testimony of former U.S. Marine Captain Brian Steidle, the doc takes the viewer on an emotionally charged journey into the heart of Darfur, Sudan, where an Arab run government is systematically executing a plan to rid the province of its black African citizens. The Sundance '07 premiere received a slew of festival wins at Full Frame, Nantucket, Seattle and Silverdocs. The ...

    indieWIRE INTERVIEW | "My Best Friend" Director Patrice LeConte

    French director Patrice LeConte's "My Best Friend" (Mon meilleur ami) centers on Francois, a middle-aged antique dealer with a stylish apartment and a fabulous life. At a dinner with a group he considers his dearest acquaintances, he is blindsided by the revelation that none of them actually like him. He's arrogant, self-centered and harsh, and they don't believe he knows the meaning of friendship. His business partner Catherine makes him a bet: if he can produce a best friend, she will let him keep a massive Greek vase he acquired that afternoon on the company tab. If not, it's hers... LeConte won a BAFTA as well as French Cesar Awards for h...

    indieWIRE INTERVIEW | "Dr. Bronner's Magic Soapbox" Director Sara Lamm

    Whoever thinks enlightened can't be found on a soap label hasn't looked closely at that text-heavy blue bottle in the Trader Joe's aisle. From afar Dr. Bronner's unadorned, institutional-like bottles look as if they're covered with warnings (one of the big ones: DILUTE!). Rather, they are packed with mind-twisting moral teachings. Even looking for some instructions gives you a healthy dose: "Enjoy body rub to stimulate body-mind-soul-spirit and teach the essene moral ABC uniting all free in the shepherd astronomer Israel's greatest all-one-god-faith!" Sara Lamm's documentary about Dr. Emanuel Bronner, master soapmaker, self-proclaimed ra...
