47 Meters Down: Roundtable With Actors Matthew Modine & Yani Gellman

What would you do if you were trapped in a cage deep into the ocean, surrounded by a handful of great white sharks? It’s a terrifying prospect, and ever since Jaws hit theaters back in the ‘70s, moviegoers have been fascinating with the danger surrounding sharks.

In the film 47 Meters Down, we see two women get trapped in such a circumstance. Will they stay calm, collected, and find a way out of this mess, or will they succumb to the forces of the sea? That remains to be seen.

Recently, Lrm had the opportunity to attend a press junket, and while there, we had the opportunity to attend a roundtable with several other outlets, and speak with co-stars of the film Matthew Modine and Yani Gellman, who play the characters Captain Taylor and Louis, respectively. Throughout they interview, they discuss the filmmaking process, the experience in shooting on location,

David Thomson: Catherine Keener

Catherine Keener has been a supporting actor for years, with a reputation for being interesting in valuable, offbeat pictures

Catherine Keener is a beloved figure among the several million who are always hoping for the best from American independent pictures. She promises feeling, humour and a sense of life as it is really lived, plus a nice acidity. Keener has been attractive without threatening outright beauty or glamour. Her persona springs from ironic intelligence and that's what any wise man or woman should be searching for in life. The trouble is that in America, women actors are often supposed to be knockouts who dominate their pictures just by virtue of standing there and letting themselves be photographed.

So Keener has been a supporting actor for more than 25 years, with a reputation for being different and interesting in valuable, offbeat pictures. Indeed, she has often been taken as a talisman and even a guarantee.

Free Flick of the Day: Living in Oblivion

Free Flick of the Day: Living in Oblivion
Tom Dicillo's second movie, Living in Oblivion, is a weird and funny look at indie filmmaking from the point of view of first-time director Nick Reve. Reve, who is played by Steve Buscemi, is a former cinematographer making his feature-length debut on a shoestring budget with a team full of colorful weirdos and/or pains in the asses. Nick's leading man Chad Palomino (James LeGros) is handsome, blond, and obsessed with his position in every frame. Chad has drama with the leading lady Nicole (Catherine Keener), who's actually in love with Nick. Then there's the crappy Dp Wolf (Dermot Mulroney), literally vomitrocious craft services, forgotten lines, bad shots, an angry small person (Peter Dinklage as Tito), and dream sequences. Also, everyone is sleeping with everyone else. It's messy.

Living in Oblivion and its characters have just enough in common with Dicillo's first movie, Johnny Suede, that people assume that's what Oblivion is about.

When You're Strange: A Film about the Doors | Film review

Despite rare footage, there's something unexciting about Tom Dicillo's homage to the Doors, writes Jason Solomons

Much of this film about America's most "dark and dangerous" rock band consists of previously unseen footage. You wouldn't know that, though, unless you read the press notes. Somehow, it all seems rather familiar anyway, probably thanks to Oliver Stone's 1991 feature film about them, which starred Val Kilmer and some very fine wigs.

Although this is his first documentary, Tom Dicillo's previous features such as Living in Oblivion and The Real Blonde have been heavy with irony about film and fashion. It's strange, then, that this film is so reverential. Narrated by Johnny Depp – Mr Vanessa Paradis, of course – there isn't a hint of a smirk at Jim Morrison's leather-panted posturing. Somehow, Depp makes being in a rock band seem really boring.

While the band's music is always worth hearing,

There are still rooms unknown at the Morrison Hotel: Talking with Tom Dicillo about When you're Strange - A Film About The Doors

(Jim Morrison in his experimental film, Hwy, from When you're Strange.)

By Terry Keefe

(Currently appearing in this month's Venice Magazine.)

Many a visitor to Venice Beach has spent some time wondering the exact location where Jim Morrison and Ray Manzarek reportedly ran into each other in 1965, after having attended UCLA Film School together previously, and decided to form the Doors. The legend of the band needs no recounting here, not after a number of books, the 1991 Oliver Stone film, and endless television clip show assemblies, along with various live albums and re-releases of recordings. Which does raise the question of whether a 2010 documentary on the Doors fills any real need, at least that was the initial reaction from this Doors fan when hearing about director Tom Dicillo’s When You’re Strange - A Film About the Doors. Then, Morrison appeared on screen in the Dicillo documentary, in pristine,
