Sundance Film Review: ‘Uncle Howard’

27 January 2016 11:37 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Aaron Brookner’s “Uncle Howard” pays fond tribute to his hero-worshipped relative, Howard Brookner, who packed considerable professional activity into a decade’s indie filmmaking before dying of AIDS in 1989 at age 34. As the subject was fascinated by (and part of) his era’s Manhattan art scenes, the documentary boasts plentiful footage of late and still-living luminaries from William Burroughs to Madonna. Nevertheless, this is no starry-eyed, heart-on-sleeve flashback but a low-key, respectful one, no less appealing for its relative reserve. Beyond further festival travel, the Sundance premiere could attract minor theatrical exposure while getting wider play from artscasters and niche home-format sales.

Spending very little time on his subject’s earlier years — which were before the younger filmmaker’s time — Brookner jumps right into his own latter-day efforts to retrieve an archive of materials that have sat untouched in Burroughs’ onetime Manhattan studio “The Bunker” for over three decades. »

26 January 2016 9:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

ABC’s nostalgic comedy series “The Goldbergs” will pay homage to another beloved ’80s movie this season, with an episode centered around 1987’s “Dirty Dancing,” which starred Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey.

“‘Dirty Dancing’ is a huge ’80s cultural touchstone — the music, the memorable lines, and of course, Swayze. No one loved it more than my mom. I’ll always remember how she dragged me to see it in the theaters several times and then bought it on video,” said creator/executive producer Adam F. Goldberg in a statement. “I knew this was our big movie to explore this season when all of the writers on the show also had their very own ‘Dirty Dancing’ memories from years ago. It really is a gem of the ’80s and it’s so exciting to bring it to life with my amazing cast.”

The Goldbergs” has previously paid tribute to two other »
