Eastern Promises, The King of Kong, Manda Bala

Eastern Promises is absolutely worth a trip to the theatre. Cronenberg continues in the same vein as A History of Violence and I think it’s a really great direction he’s taken. Viggo Mortensen is fucking awesome, as is Vincent Cassel. See this soon. The King of Kong tells the story of the two greatest Donkey […]

THIS IS ENGLAND

My favorite new film right now. Full of incredible performances. Haven’t seen anything from a young filmmaker with this much energy, intensity, and emotional impact in a long time. This deserves to be seen and recommended.

My Blueberry Nights trailer

For those of you interested in what Wong Kar Wai’s first english language film looks like. Opening night film at Cannes & in competition. After seeing the trailer, I have my doubts about this film. Looks like all his other films only with Norah Jones and Jude Law. Weird. http://www.allocine.fr/video/player_gen_cmedia=18730399&cfilm=111805.html

What is it? Review

This is truly an insane film. If you’re interested and in New York, you still have a chance to see it tonight at the Anthology Film Archives. In addition to the film, you will be treated to Crispin Glover performing a slide show beforehand, and participating in a lengthy Q&A afterwards. Possibly the best Q&A […]
