Wassup Rockers (2005)
The canine star shot to fame thanks to his role in The Artist, which saw him honoured with a Palm Dog award at the Cannes Film Festival, as well as Best Dog in a Theatrical Film at the Golden Collar Awards. In addition to The Artist, the rescue dog also appeared in the films Wassup Rockers, Mr. Fix It, Water for Elephants and The Campaign.
“I will forever hold him dearly in my heart and never forget his infinite love for chicken and hotdogs,” his trainer Sarah Clifford told TMZ.
After having won the top prize at the 2012 Rome Film Festival, controversial filmmaker Larry Clark’s Marfa Girl was available for streaming directly from his official website. Now, nearly three years later, Breaking Glass Pictures is distributing the title in limited theatrical release. For those familiar with Clark’s work, the title doesn’t feel like anything new from the director, navigating a milieu of loosely connected adolescents and the peripheral adults in their environment as they conquer their all-consuming boredom with illicit drugs and promiscuity. The customarily blatant yet generally believable crude conversations revolving around sexuality present in all of Clark’s work is full force here.
Seeing as this is the filmmaker’s first feature in seven years, following 2005’s Wassup Rockers (though it should be noted a 2014 title The Smell of Us premiered in last fall’s
Once upon a time, independent filmmaking consisted largely of unestablished filmmakers and actors who struggled to get their cinematic vision in front of the viewing public. Not any more. Today, independent filmmaking has been hijacked by A-list stars who use crowdfunding to raise millions for their movie. Even the Spirit Awards, originally founded to recognize independent filmmaking, are now obsessed with celebrities and films released by big-studio subsidiaries that enjoy mainstream success.
However, there are still true independent filmmakers out there, who still endure the challenges of filmmaking outside of the Hollywood machine. Filmmakers who offer something other than the usual mainstream fare. Filmmakers like Fanny Veliz.
Veliz is an actress whose filmography includes roles in the film Wassup Rockers and the TNT series Southland, but she found her calling behind the camera.
“I am a complete man, having both sexes of the mind.”
When you have nothing, the very wise Luc Moullet tells us, you should cultivate relentless artifice. These days, Larry Clark is almost there, down to one thing: Marfa, a bitty town in Texas. And Marfa has been oft blessed, first just obliquely by Edna Ferber, then harder by George Stevens,
However, things are changing for the cult filmmaker, who was preparing that day to talk with director Claudio Giovannesi before an audience of independent film fans as part of the Rome Film Festival. One week later,
“Guys, I’m trying to be serious,” Lillard says.
Such a call for control from a man with a post-party rasp in is voice doesn’t just ring with authority, but poignancy to the “metamorphosis” that Lillard is experiencing. Lillard may be most known for Scooby-Doo or Slc Punk!, but now he has a pivotal supporting role in The Descendants, and work in Trouble With the Curve on his resume. His biggest declaration of artistry so far is his movie Fat Kid Rules the World, starring Jacob Wysocki (Terri) as an overweight teen who befriends another lost adolescent, played by Matt O’Leary. The film celebrates
But MK2 (via ThePlaylist) spoke with documentarians Gérard Lacroix and Pierre-Paul Puljiz, both of whom revealed that they’ve been in communication with the director and, as of right now, are trying to generate some life on his next project, entitled The Smell of Us. It’s not very hard to determine what such a smell might be — well, maybe what the specific… no, that’s too much — but, other than some problems with making the project “uncensored,” any other information is not available. (Whatever idea
Oddly, there's also a cinema ticket for Harry Brown, 2009's British vigilante thriller. Its title character, like Clark, is a pensioner preoccupied with teenage delinquents. But, whereas Brown guns down thugs, Clark would be more likely to take them skateboarding and then snap them with their junk hanging out.
This exhibition, entitled What Do You Do for Fun?, is culled from a retrospective that opened in Paris last year to the sort of
In the explicit picture, Janice poses in nothing but a pair of sparkly heels. With her left leg lifting in the air, the "Wassup Rockers" actress gives her peculiar big smile while letting her brunette hair loose. Janice, who stands tall at 5ft 11in, told the mag that her size six figure was obtained through tough exercise regime, diet and a little help from the Botox injections.
"I love my body, but it's a compulsive obsession. I have to make sure I exercise and that the ingredients that go into my body are completely organic," Janice told the mag. "I relax, meditate and do 80 minutes of yoga every day.
