Archer Season 8 Review

3 April 2017 8:39 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Four episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

The eighth season of Archer picks up where the seventh left off, with the titular character’s bullet-riddled body floating in a Los Angeles swimming pool. It begins without humor, in the midst of death. Woodhouse is eulogized and buried, while Archer lies in a coma and a voiceover recites Bible verses. Lana and Mallory wait next to Archer’s comatose body for him to wake up, wondering what he might be dreaming about.

This is the framing device for Archer: Dreamland, the eighth season of the animated action comedy. Like several of its preceding seasons, this new installment drops us into a long form exploration of a theme. The fifth season gave us the team as drug dealers (Archer Vice), the sixth made them spies again, and the seventh turned them into Hollywood private detectives. Now, the entire season appears to be »

“Fits and Starts” is appropriately titled. The directorial debut from Laura Terruso (who scripted “Hello, My Name Is Doris”), the film follows a pair of married writers – one wildly successful, one struggling – on a one-night trip from New York to Connecticut to attend a pretentious salon, only for one of them to go missing, leaving the other adrift inside a shooting gallery of wacky art world clichés. The model seems to be “After Hours” in a higher tax bracket and with a McSweeney’s subscription, and while it certainly has its moments, it remains frustratingly one-note, too cool to really commit to the screwball farce the premise is crying out for, and too enamored with picking off easy targets to draw real blood.

Once considered a rising literary star, David Warwick (Wyatt Cenac) has been fruitlessly tinkering with his debut novel for several years, during which time his wife, Jennifer “J. »

As ever, the festival features a strong lineup of both fresh premieres and festival favorites, new and returning stars, and plenty of opportunities for talent to break out on the festival stage.

From filmmakers to actors (and, sometimes, both at the same time), familiar faces looking to try a new craft to total newbies, this year’s festival has plenty of stars on the rise to look out for (ouch, so bright).

Unlike Sundance, which attracts a lot of industry attention around a handful of high-profile titles, SXSW is more about discovery. As usual, there are a lot of compelling possibilities in the program, from the newcomers in its competition sections through the more peculiar and surprising offerings in the Visions section. IndieWire got a few tips from SXSW Film director Janet Pierson and extracted these promising possibilities.

Small Stories, Big Steps

The festival’s narrative feature competition is often the place where filmmakers on their first or second feature get a sudden boost. It was there that Lena Dunham’s “Tiny Furniture” and Destin Cretton’s “Short Term 12” both took off. »
