    Short Starts: Watch "Hesher" Director Spencer Susser's "I Love Sarah Jane"

    When is a zombie movie not a zombie movie? “Hesher” director Spencer Susser answers that question with gusto in his 2008 film “I Love Sarah Jane.” The short does have a zombie, and it’s a pretty classic variety of zombie at that. It looks like a zombie, hungers for human flesh and can infect with zombie-ness by biting you. Yet that’s the extent to which “I Love Sarah Jane” conforms to the genre. The cast of healthy human characters, entirely kids and teenagers, are neither running away from an undead horde nor holed up trying to fight them off. It’s a movie in the context of zombies, but it can’t really be considered a “zombie movie,” and tha...

    Short Starts: "Thor" Star Chris Hemsworth in "Ollie Klublershturf vs. The Nazis"

    This short film opens with a fart joke. It’s not really even a joke so much as an enormous fart noise and a reaction shot, which set things off to an abrupt and jarring start. While beginning with this sort of sophomoric humor isn’t exactly a good sign, the rest of the short more than makes up for i...

    10 Terrific Shorts from the Tribeca Film Festival

    I have spent much of the week tweeting that I've been more consistently impressed with Tribeca’s shorts line-up than by their mixed bag of features. The collection of shorts includes a variety of narrative, documentary and experimental works stretched over eight programs, each of which offers a uniq...

    Spout About: "Fast Five" Homoeroticism; Shakepeare's "Terminator"; Werner Herzog's Best Voiceovers

    I'm genuinely intrigued to see "Fast Five" strictly for its representation of Rio, mainly because it looks like more favela-focused poverty porn in the trailers and clips. How does it compare to the city's image in "Rio," which the "Fast and the Furious" sequel will be competing against this weekend? Alas, nobody is talking about location depictions on opening day. They're all too concerned with the homoeroticism of "Fast Five" instead. Yesterday I linked to a list from IFC's Matt Singer ranking the new film's best lines hinting at a subtext. But there's also Jeff Wells' focused quoting on "The Gayness" illustrated in Manohla Dargis' NY Times...

    Anyone Remember "The Wraith"? See Charlie Sheen as a Fast and Furious Ghost

    I'm anxious to see how "Fast Five" works so well (according to many critics), in spite of it seeming so familiar, whether within the context of its own franchise or in its apparent transition towards more of a straight heist flick (and the next film is supposedly headed even more into that genre). As much as I joke that I'm waiting for the gang to blast out of orbit for some spaceship racing (as per this pitch I suggested last year), it's nice when a franchise can stay reasonably grounded and consistent while making some slight changes along the way. That said, I'm also certain that I'd love a "Fast and the Furious" sequel that brought Charli...
