When you walk into a Tim Burton movie, you know almost exactly what to expect. For more than the past decade, Burton’s walked a thin line between putting his personal stamp on every movie he makes and complete self-parody — at times managing to do both. As unique as we’re sure Burton would like to think his take is, he’s not the only one who likes making slightly Gothic-tinged movies with a baroque design. All of these movies share some of the same DNA as a Tim Burton movie, so much so that frequently the main distinguishing difference is fewer appearances by Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter. And while no, they’re not all as good as Burton’s best work, we can say for certain that literally every one of them is better than Planet of the Apes, which isn't exactly an achievement worth bragging about. »

The fourth annual Migrating Forms media festival, which will run May 11-20 at the Anthology Film Archives in NYC, is a compelling mix of political films, pop culture explorations, ethnographic exposés and collections of new media art.

The 8th annual Brakhage Center Symposium has been programmed by curator Kathy Geritz and will examine the concept of experimental narrative over three days of screenings and lectures on March 16-18 at the University of Colorado, Boulder.
Geritz has pulled together a program in which experimental films explore notions of narrative through diverse means, whether combining with documentary or animated elements, or through nonlinear structure, or through the direct experience of time. As Geritz hopes: “In these different ways, the films presented will challenge and expand our expectations as they push the boundaries of storytelling conventions.”
Some of the filmmakers who will be present at the symposium are animators Stacey Steers and Chris Sullivan, experimental documentary filmmaker Amie Siegel and Cannes Film Festival Palme d’Or winner Apichatpong Weerasethakul, who will be screening his 1987 acclaimed feature film Syndromes and a Century and the more recent short film Emerald (2007).

What in the hell is going on with Reverend Cole? In the span of two episodes, he’s gone from a man on a mission of peace to a cold blooded killer, and all it took was a couple of slaps to the face from his estranged daughter and the sight of a few burned bodies to get him there. As far as character development goes, nothing has been handled as sloppily and as poorly as Reverend Cole – his 180-degree turn a consequence of Hell on Wheels’ continual failures with both organic storytelling and pacing. To make matters worse, Cole’s decision to kill in the final moments of “Timshel” is handled in the most over-the-top way imaginable – a violent beheading punctuated by a crazed look in Cole’s eyes.
“Timshel” is chock-full of these ridiculous moments. Black Moon copes with killing his own flesh and »

Did that really just happen? Did the Reverend really cut off that Union soldier's head?
I had a feeling something bad was gonna go down, especially with the Reverend acting like he's been taking a massive dose of crazy pills recently.
Not only does he seem to let his white hair grow out, he doesn't really get dressed anymore, and he stumbles around with a creepy grin on his face. The Revered is clearly off his rocker and I love it.
Tom Noonan is giving a fantastic performance as Reverend Cole and even though I still think the change in character was sharply drastic and immediate, it's turned into something oddly compelling. Who would have thought that a man of God would turn into an extreme danger and problem?
It looks as if the outside danger of the Cheyenne is shifting back toward the in-the-camp danger. Once again, I'm surprised »

At the end of last week’s Hell on Wheels Bohannan, Elam and a small group of Union soldiers were besieged by the Cheyenne, led by Black Moon’s brother Pawnee Killer. While things looked dire for our band of vengeance-seeking soldiers, through some sheer tenacity and creative killing techniques, they managed to thwart off their attackers by rendering them all lifeless.
‘Timshel’ starts off big, with Joseph Black Moon (Eddie Spears) finally forced to take the life of his violence-loving brother Pawnee Killer (Gerald Auger), and then explaining to Bohannan that in order for anyone to believe that the path of the railroad is safe, the southerner is going to have to take back some “proof.” Of course, Black Moon is referring to the scalps of the fallen Cheyenne, but Bohannan refuses, despite ...
