Interview: Dan Gilroy on the Reality of ‘Nightcrawler’

23 October 2014 1:53 PM, PDT

The world of journalism doesn’t rest once the sun goes down. Some would say that a lot of the news, the violence and drama that many love to watch, thrives at nighttime. If there’s an accident taking place nearby at some point past dusk, the nightcrawlers are more than likely one of the first people on the scene, quickly capturing the footage needed to sell it off to local news networks. It’s a rough business but there are plenty out there who make a good living off it. Writer-director Dan Gilroy takes the cameras out of their hands and puts the focus on this particular group of people in ‘Nightcrawler.’  [ Read More ]

22 October 2014 9:25 PM, PDT

Title: The Salt of the Earth Director: Wim Wenders & Juliano Ribeiro Salgado Starring: Sebastião Salgado.

The Rome Film Festival – which has had a precipitous downfall over the years – opens with a mediocre film. ‘Last Summer’ directed by Leonardo Guerra Seràgnoli has a very simple and nerve-wracking plot: A Japanese mother is obliged to spend a few final days with her 4-year-old son, who’s been whisked away in a custody battle, though we never know why.

Two big networks have decided invest in the world of online television.

At the time of the ruling, FilmOn CEO Alki David said that the decision was “the beginning of the death of the bundle.” CBS and HBO’s move to online programming reiterates something David has said. “Give the consumer what they want, when they want it, on the devices they love,” he said.
