Grace Director Paul Solet Heads Into A Dark Summer!

It’s been about 4 years since Paul Solet’s damn good directorial debut Grace, but everyone’s favorite Jack Chop salesman is stepping behind the camera again for Dark Summer. Described as highly stylized modern ghost story, “the film follows Daniel Williamson, a 17 year old on house arrest for the summer. With his mother away on business, a horrifying incident occurs, followed by an even more terrifying presence in the house.”

Our pal Ryan Turek of Shock Till You Drop premiered the poster, which you can see above. I’m certainly digging the vintage border design and title treatment of the poster. The film will begin lensing this Fall, for a 2014 release.

What say you Fright-fans? Stoked for another film from fahkin’ Paul Solet? Icons own Robg & Adam Barnick are huge supporters of Grace (Barnick even worked on it!), and we have a wealth of content on the site devoted to it.

V/H/S (2012)

  • Planet Fury
Directors: Adam Wingard, David Bruckner, Ti West, Glenn McQuaid, Joe Swanberg, Radio Silence

Writers: Simon Barrett, Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, David Bruckner, Tyler Gillett, Justin Martinez, Glenn McQuaid, Radio Silence, Nicholas Tecosky, Chad Villella, Ti West

Featuring: Calvin Reeder, Lane Hughes, Adam Wingard, Hannah Fierman, Mike Donlan, Joe Swanberg

There has been some big excitement around the new film V/H/S since it premiered at Sundance earlier this year, and this recently culminated in the sold-out screening at the Toronto After Dark Summer Screenings.

V/H/S features a series of found-footage shorts written and directed by Adam Wingard (A Horrible Way to Die), David Bruckner (The Signal), Ti West (The Innkeepers), Glenn McQuaid (I Sell the Dead), Joe Swanberg, and the directing quartet Radio Silence (formerly known as Chad, Matt & Rob). The overall result is likely one of the scariest films you’ll see this year.

Beauty news: summer's here (well, at a makeup counter near you)

Anna Chesters on Bobbi Brown's latest collection, the Summer Darks trend and an eye-poppingly expensive eye treatment

On trend

Summer makeup doesn't have to be all about being buffed, bronzed and highlighted. A contrasting trend for this year is what those in the know are calling Summer Darks. With this rain it might be more appropriate to call it Dark Summer but the sentiment remains the same. Plenty of dark eyeliner is fine, just go for a long-lasting one that won't budge in case it does get hot – Estée Lauder's Double Wear pencil is great (£16, esteelauder.co.uk). But if you want to be really on trend it's all about the lips. As spotted on Lana Del Rey, Kate Bosworth, Rooney Mara and others at the recent Met Ball, go vampy but keep eyes light. For nervous beginners, try applying a matt colour, like the new Nars Pure Matte Lipstick in Moscow (£18.50, narscosmetics.

Suicide Scrawl: Nicholas Ray's "We Can’t Go Home Again"

  • MUBI
“I didn’t know who to believe—my parents or the television set.” — We Can’t Go Home Again ('73 cut)

“On the one hand, Ray has a knack for disrupting smooth sequences with odd interpolations… a sense of trying to carve out some space for immediacy and spontaneity inside institutionalized patterns of construction. But against this is a proclivity for heavy symbolic underlining and general schematization, which place the individual movements of the films within thickly determined contours” — B. Kite, Bigger Than Life: Somewhere in Suburbia

“Salvation is a private affair.” — Jacques Rivette, On Imagination

Some thoughts crystallized around We Can’t Go Home Again.

***

In retrospect, Nicholas Ray can seem as much like the last great Hollywood romantic as the first serious parodist of a generation, Godard, Oshima, Ruiz, still to come: anatomizing genre structure and hallmarks not to show the extension of personal philosophy into any
