In the upcoming Evan Glodell-directed “Bellflower,” the characters plan for an oncoming apocalypse just as one of them deals with a de...

    Miranda July Cut An "Accidentally Porny" Sex Scene From 'The Future'

    Dead Cats, Dirty Limericks, Getting Locked In A Closet & More We Learned About Miranda July's LatestWhen our own James Rocchi saw Miranda July's latest film, "The Future" at Sundance back in January, he noted the film succeeded "as a single story about the terrifying possibilities of life, the uncertainty of love and the certainty of the passage of time." A month later, we caught up with July at SXSW, she mirrored his thoughts on the film calling "The Future" a "a horror movie about facing the void, the empty moment where you don’t know what to do with yourself." And it's in that pre-mid-life crisis of sorts that "The Future" finds its compel...

    SXSW: Miranda July Says 'The Future' Is Her Version Of A Horror Film

    And More We Learned About Her New FilmFew working filmmakers are as divisive as Miranda July. Her first film, "Me and You and Everyone We Know" was to some, one of the best films of the last decade, but to others was barely watchable insufferable hipster bait. We're firmly in the former camp, and a...

    Sundance '11 Review: Miranda July's 'The Future' Is Surreal, Precious, Devastating & Brilliant

    From our reviews correspondent over at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, James Rocchi.Following up her debut "Me and You and Everyone We Know," Miranda July's "The Future" not only echoes the qualities (and quality) of that film but expands on them in rich and fascinating ways. An L.A. couple (July and Hamish Linklater) are intent on adopting a cat they rescued. They realize that when the cat is released from medical care in a month, their lives will change, be set, connected by responsibility and care to a future both unimaginable and wholly predictable. (“We’re 35 now ... by the time the cat dies, we’ll be 40 ... and 40 might as well be 50 ....

    Ralph Fiennes' 'Coriolanus,' Miranda July's 'The Future' & Wim Wenders' 'Pina' Added To Berlinale

    Sundance is obviously a great festival, and sets the pace for the rest of the year, as far as domestic indie cinema goes. But for more international fare, it's sometimes a little bit lacking, and fans of subtitled cinema tend to cast their eyes to the Berlinale in February, which, while often featuring highlights from the Park City line-up and premieres from American auteurs (last year saw the likes of "Please Give," "Greenberg" and "Shutter Island" make the schedule), also features the highlights from European cinema that'll do the rounds at festivals for the rest of the year -- the 2010 version saw Polanski's "The Ghost Writer," "Submarino"...

    Jon Brion Scoring Miranda July's Upcoming Film 'The Future'

    The Official Synopsis Has Also ArrivedOk, Miranda July's "The Future" heading to Sundance? We maybe should have waited a beat. Earlier today, an IonCinema report said, July's new relationships-in-turmoil drama was heading to Utah, but upon reflection there's no sourcing of that claim. We quickly emailed the writer who said, vaguely, "that's not official." Sigh, ok, whatever. We started our own digging and it turns out a hopeful speculation we made back in 2008 is correct: lauded composer/musician Jon Brion -- known for his beloved "Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind," "Punch Drunk Love," and "I Heart Huckabees" scores -- is writing the mu...
