's semi-serious, semi-tongue-in-cheek sci-fi film Before We Vanish
one of the best premieres of last year. The trailer for the American release plays it straight, but captures the wry verve of the film. Highly recommended.We adore the output of Poverty Row
studio Republic (Driftwood, The Inside Story, I've Always Loved You), but rarely have had the chance to see the movies on celluloid and looking good. So we'll be front row, center for the Museum of Modern Art
's "Republic Rediscovered" series, curated by Martin Scorsese
. But just as good as any of those 1940s classics is the trailer for the retrospective, cut by filmmaker Gina Telaroli
.The first look at Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot, Gus Van Sant
's new film, set to premiere at Sundance.
