Will Crowdfunding Lead to an Indie Sequel Boom?

5 November 2013 10:00 AM, PST | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

In the history of indie film, sequels haven’t been very common. If we exclude horror movies, that is. And now documentaries. There’s Clerks II, S. Darko, John Duigan’s Flirting, Wayne Wang’s Blue in the Face, Lars von Trier’s Manderlay, What Becomes of the Broken Hearted? and I guess The Road Warrior (and Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome). There tend to be weird circumstances and technicalities for a lot of them, too. One of the purest examples of an indie sequel is, of course, Before Midnight, which is even rarer for being a third part. It’s possibly the most beloved and critically acclaimed film of the year, and it could very well lead a new wave of follow ups to indie favorites and cult classics that aren’t necessarily easily banked genre flicks. Back in May we learned of another indie threequel in the works, Hal Hartley’s Ned Rifle. The »

In Memory of Lou Reed, Watch His Short Film 'Red Shirley'

27 October 2013 4:37 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The music world lost a legend today with the death of Lou Reed. But the film world is mourning as well. Reed provided music for the soundtracks to many television shows and films, including "Berlin Alexanderplatz," "Natural Born Killers," "Velvet Goldmine," "High Fidelity," "Trainspotting," "Prozac Nation," "The Royal Tenenbaums," "Brick," "Juno" and many more. Reed also appeared in many films, including Wim Wenders' "Faraway, So Close!," Wayne Wang's "Blue in the Face" and Paul Auster's "Lulu On The Bridge." Reed had his directorial debut in 2010 with the short film, "Red Shirley" co-directed by Ralph Gibson. The film is a portrait of Shirley Novick, a 99-year-old woman who lived through the Wwi and fled Poland for Canada during WWII. She eventually illegally immigrated to the U.S. where she worked in a textile factory. She engaged in union struggles and participated in the Civil Rights March on Washington, »

Lou Reed Dies

27 October 2013 9:17 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Even though his impact in front of the camera was rarely felt, the music and mood of Lou Reed has had a staggering influence on film soundtracks through the years. So it’s with heavy hearts that we report the rock pioneer has died at the age of 71.Born in Brooklyn in 1942, he got into song writing early, kicking off his career after university working at novelty records label Pickwick. After befriending John Cale, he formed a band called the Primitives, which would mutate into the Warlocks and then the incredibly influential Velvet Underground, with whom he would have some of his earliest hits.Reed split from the band in 1970 and struck out on his own as a solo singer, producing such memorable albums as Transformer, Berlin and Metal Machine Music.Film-wise, he’s cropped up in movies such as 1980’s One Trick Pony (written by and starring) Paul Simon, »

Beloved Book Headed For The Big Screen

21 April 2013 7:11 PM, PDT | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

New York — Thanks to the printed word and the moving image, Salman Rushdie has recaptured the worst part of his life and relived one of the best.

Last fall, the 65-year-old author published the best-selling memoir "Joseph Anton" about his years in hiding that followed the 1988 publication of "The Satanic Verses" and the call for his death by Iran's Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. Rushdie is now promoting the film adaptation of his breakthrough novel, "Midnight's Children," winner of the Booker Prize in 1981 and one of the most highly praised works of fiction of its time.

"It was cathartic to write `Joseph Anton,'" Rushdie explained during a recent interview, wearing a gray suit and no tie, sipping coffee at a hotel rooftop garden in midtown Manhattan. "And `Midnight's Children' was the book where I really became a writer."

Much of the world only learned about Rushdie after "Satanic Verses," which was »
