    This Weekend, See Aronofsky's Splashy Epic 'Noah,' and Dry Off With a Few Indies

    "Noah," Darren Aronofsky's costly, epic deluge of gritty visual splendor and waterlogged actors, is like no Bible you've ever read. After the film floods theaters Friday, it's up to audiences to decide if all the efforts of this once-indie filmmaker were worth the trouble.

    Review: Drake Doremus's 'Breathe In,' Starring Guy Pearce and Felicity Jones

    Felicity Jones plays a young temptress for the second time in 2014, here opposite Guy Pearce, in Drake Doremus’s well-enough-made if irritatingly predictable “Breathe In.”

    LFF '11: Drake Doremus Says He Shot 'Like Crazy' For $250,000 On A $1,500 Still Camera

    And More We Learned From The Director Of The Sundance Award-Winning Romance The Sundance Grand Jury Prize is traditionally something of a kiss of death for an indie, in terms of gaining a wider audience. Irrespective of the quality of the film, the likes of "Girls Town," "Sunday," "Three Seasons," "Slam," "Forty Shades of Blue," "Quinceanera" and "Padre Nuestro" never really set the world alight, did they? But things have changed in recent years, with the last two winners, "Precious" and "Winter's Bone," both picking up Best Picture Academy Award nominations, and this year's victorious movie has just as good a good chance at crossing over to ...

    Nico Tortorella Joins New Film By 'Like Crazy' Director Drake Doremus, Plot Details Revealed

    Newcomer Mackenzie Davis Also On BoardIt has been a pretty nice year for Drake Doremus. He walked away from the Sundance Film Festival with fantastic buzz for his lo-fi tale of long-distance love "Like Crazy" along with a Grand Jury Prize under his belt for the effort, and he's used that momentum to get his next project rolling. Announced last month, not much was known about the project except that it would reunite him with "Like Crazy" star Felicity Jones, and also feature Guy Pearce and Amy Ryan, with the story centering on "love and marriage." Well two new actors have joined the film and in the process some details on the story have landed...

    'Like Crazy' With Anton Yelchin & Felicity Jones Re-Edited From R-Rating To PG-13 For Release

    Drake Doremus Says New Film With Guy Pearce & Amy Ryan A "Darker Cousin" To 'Like Crazy'The journey to Sundance is difficult as it is, but leaving is even harder as after all the hard work filmmakers put into their efforts, only very few leave Park City with the kind of buzz that Drake Doremus' "Like Crazy" has. With a Grand Jury Prize for Doremus and Special Jury Prize for Felicity Jones, the film which also co-stars Anton Yelchin and features Jennifer Lawrence in a small role as well, walked away with a distribution deal with Paramount and a wave of momentum for the director. But sometimes, to make that leap to a bigger stage you have to ma...

    Felicity Jones Reteams With 'Like Crazy' Helmer Drake Doremus; Guy Pearce & Amy Ryan Aboard New Pic

    Sundance may be located in the middle-of-nowhere Utah, be a pain the ass to get to and be ridiculous expensive but there is a reason every budding filmmaker dreams of taking the journey -- it can make (or break) your career. For Drake Doremus, he saw everything change with his low key long-distance romance tale "Like Crazy." After directing three little seen features, Doremus soon found himself as the center of attention with the picture earning strong reviews, great buzz for the performances by Anton Yelchin and Felicity Jones and walked away from the festival with a distribution deal with Paramount. And oh yeah, he also took home a Grand Ju...
