DVD Playhouse: September 2012

3 September 2012 10:58 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

By Allen Gardner

Quadrophenia (Criterion) Franc Roddam’s 1979 film based on The Who’s classic rock opera tells the story of working class lad Jimmy (Phil Daniels) struggling to find his identity in a rapidly changing Britain, circa 1965. Jimmy is a “mod,” a youth movement dedicated to wearing snappy suits, driving Vespa motor scooters bedecked with side mirrors, popping amphetamines and obsessed with the new sound of bands like The Who and The Kinks. Their other pastime is engaging in bloody brawls with “rockers,” throwbacks to the 1950s, who listen to Elvis and Gene Vincent, wear leather biker gear, grease in their hair and drive massive motorcycles a la Marlon Brando in “The Wild One.” Often cited as a worthy successor to “Rebel Without a Cause” as the greatest angry youth picture ever made, it is that and more, including a first cousin to the “kitchen sink” dramas of scribes John Osborne, »

Film Review: Delightful ‘Life Happens’ Proves Truth is Funny

15 April 2012 9:10 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Is it possible to be addled in encroaching middle age? Because “Life Happens,” a film about an ex-party girl turned single mother, starring “it” girl Krysten Ritter, actually is quite funny, and gets those laughs simply by applying some simple truths to a unique situation. Kate Bosworth, Rachel Bilson, Justin Kirk and Kirsten Johnston co-star.

Rating: 4.0/5.0

Ritter, who just opened this week as the title character in the awkwardly titled sitcom “Don’t Trust the B—— in Apartment 23,” carries this comedy on her shoulders, which she also co-wrote. She is an impressive scene stealer, but also allows the very strong supporting cast to get their moments. The script relies on some time honored stereotypes – twentysomething virgin, chirpy Mom, horny social misfit, dismissive boss – and turns them on their ear by leading them into unexpected directions. All of the actions of the films evolve from well-established background circumstances, and by »

SXSW 2012 film review

complete coverage of SXSW Film 2012

Booster

Director & Screenwriter: Matt Ruskin

When Simon’s brother is arrested for armed robbery, he is asked to commit a string of similar crimes in an attempt to get his brother acquitted.

Cast: Nico Stone, Adam DuPaul, Seymour Cassel, Kristin Dougherty, Brian McGrail

(World Premiere)

Film Synopsis (from SXSW.com)

Who’S It For? Another Boston crime drama movie, but this one is nicely on the smaller scale.

Overall

It’s surprising to learn this is Stone’s first acting gig. It doesn’t feel that way. While this is a smaller film (not many chases, explosions, big-name actors, etc.) everyone does a very nice job in this film.

Simon is a booster. He’s good at his job. If you’re not aware what a booster is, he shop lifts. That’s his livelihood and I was immediately hooked. Why? »

SXSW 2012. Narrative Feature Competition

20 March 2012 1:34 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

We're going to be taking our sweet time wrapping up this year's SXSW Film Festival, looking over one section at a time and allowing for digressions and occasional notes on films that screened in Berlin and Sundance as well, focusing on what's interesting, skimming over what's not. Before we begin, a few pointers to overviews of the festival in general: IndieWIRE and the Playlist have indexed their extensive coverage and Eric Kohn's had an end-of-the-fest chat with Ben Kenigsberg and Matt Singer; James Francis Flynn posted a diary at Cinespect; and, in his podcasts for the Film Society of Lincoln Center and Kut.org, Eugene Hernandez has interviewed a slew of filmmakers and touched on broader issues with a wide range of critics: 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5.

On to the Narrative Feature Competition, eight films in all, of which I saw none; it was only after the festival was over that I realized »

Five Questions With “Booster” Director Matt Ruskin

4 March 2012 5:13 PM, PST | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Too often contemporary crime dramas binge on the crime and skimp on the drama. This is not the case with Booster, director Matt Ruskin’s debut narrative feature, and his followup to Sundance Channel documentary The Hip Hop Project. The story of Simon, a Boston-based petty thief forced to turn to serious robbery after his brother is arrested, Booster features stellar performances from a handful of Boston natives, as well as veteran character actor Seymour Cassel. Ruskin’s film wrestles with provocative moral issues, taking care to imbue even its most externally-loathsome characters with life and heart. Premiering in Narrative Competition today, Booster is sure to please audiences looking for a smart, meditative drama.

Filmmaker: The film strives for an authenticity and level of emotion not seen in many of modern-day crime films. How did you go about getting into Simon’s head, and building out his story?

The 25 Most Random Celebrities At The Same Party Ever

29 February 2012 12:06 PM, PST | BestWeekEver | See recent BestWeekEver news »

Norby Walters is not necessarily someone I would want to be friends with. For starters, he’s a sports agent. Despite my raging “Plantar fasciitis,” I am no athlete. Back in 1988, Norby was convicted of fraud and racketeering after he signed college players to professional sports teams before it was legally allowed. Despite my penchant for Scorcese crime flicks and a dude I once made out with who just got out of Rikers, I don’t often associate with criminals. He also kind of looks like my cousin Edith who passed away years ago. I loved Edith but there’s only room for one in my heart. And yet, taking allll of these things into consideration, my mind is made up: I want to be friends with Norby Walters. Why, you ask? Simple. Judging by the characters who attended his 22nd Annual Night Of 100 Stars Oscar Viewing Party, he »

“Booster,” “Pavilion” Head To SXSW Via Kickstarter

7 February 2012 9:52 AM, PST | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

I’ve added some new projects to Filmmaker‘s curated Kickstarter page, including two Ifp Narrative Lab projects selected for premieres at SXSW in March. The first is Tim Sutton’s gorgeous Pavilion, an eerie tale of adolescence that is breathtakingly shot and hauntingly directed. (It also has one of the most gorgeous websites around.) The second is Matt Ruskin’s intense character-based thriller Booster. Both films are well on their way to completion but are short the final finishing funds that will allow them to make their premiere dates. And, of course, both have some decent rewards. For $750, Sutton will give a Video Kid Brooklyn master class to your kids and their friends, and for its highest levels Ruskin is offering various signed stills of Seymour Cassel.

Another project I added to the page is Dan Nuxoll and Martha Shane’s The Mystery of Mary Joceylene. I love the »
