Trailer: Enter The Void

We have talked about it at length in these parts. Three of the regulars (Kurt & the Mamo! Matts) think it was the cinematic highlight of 2009 on the festival circuit and it is coming to a few select screens in 2010 courtesy of IFC. Do what ever you can to catch Gaspar Noe’s hallucinogen (Warning: photosensitive epileptics beware!) on as big of a...

Trailer: The Disappearance of Alice Creed

    Back in September a few of us around here were lucky enough to attend the Toronto International Film Festival. Still luckier were those of us who managed to catch one of these hidden gems that for some unfathomable reason didn’t seem to get a whole lot of buzz or chatter going on. The Disappearance of Alice Creed (Andrew’s review) was...

New Poster and Trailer for “I Am Love”

Didn’t hear anything from anyone about this seemingly surreal drama at last year’s TIFF until Kurt posted the glorious, Criterion-looking one-sheet almost a month ago to the day. And now with the trailer, the description from that posts sounds like it will be quite accurate – at least in terms off the aesthetics. The cinematography is...

Review: The White Ribbon

A tightly scheduled film festival is admittedly the wrong circumstance under which a person should watch, let alone review, a film such as Michael Haneke’s Palme d’Or winning masterpiece, The White Ribbon. Even under optimal conditions one viewing is probably insufficient. This is a film that demands your attention, and in the tradition of earlier work (i.e....

Jeunet | Micmacs | Trailer | Rejoice

A director we don’t often talk about around here but definitely should be is Jean-Pierre Jeunet. Easily in my personal list of top 3 directors working today, I just love his signature auteur style that invokes a little bit of Almodóvar, a little bit of Terry Gilliam and whole lotta charm (which almost always includes the fantastic Dominique Pinon). Look...

TIFF 09 Review: An Education

A beautifully told, classic coming of age tale through the eyes of a mature, cultured 16 year old growing up in suburban London in the 1960’s, Jenny (Carey Mulligan). Attending an all-girls school, she is by far the most inspired of her peers, the biggest dreamer. Though the dreams of her stern parents have their little girl studying at Oxford next year (and...

Antichrist One-Sheet For Fantastic Fest

While we burned ourselves out at TIFF and aren’t able to cover much from Fantastic Fest this year, we were still lucky enough to catch Lars Von Trier’s Antichrist (our review) on opening night back in early September. Fantastic Fest has pulled out all the stops for the film however and had their own poster for the film created specifically for their...

As a final palette cleanser to the festival all those of us that contribute around here, from the Mamo! Matts (B. and P.) to Rot, Andrew and myself, managed to...
