Grateful Dead Documentary ‘Long Strange Trip’ Bought by Amazon

18 January 2017 7:57 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Amazon Studios has acquired Grateful Dead documentary “Long Strange Trip” and plans to debut the film on May 26 on Amazon Prime Video in the U.S. and U.K.

Amazon made the announcement Wednesday ahead of the world premiere of “Long Strange Trip” at the Sundance Film Festival. Band members Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, and Bob Weir will be in attendance, as well as Trixie Garcia, daughter of the band’s founder and lead guitarist Jerry Garcia.

Weir said, “Over several decades a group of guys hung together making music in a group that was way tighter and lasted much longer than most marriages. Here’s the movie…”

Hart added, “Stranger than fiction — a user’s guide for an impossible journey.”

The documentary, directed by Amir Bar-Lev and executive produced by Martin Scorsese, has been in the works since 2003 when Bar-Lev first reached out to band members. Bar-Lev’s credits »

David Stratton on his "very personal" 'Stories of Australian Cinema'

17 January 2017 4:00 PM, PST | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

David Stratton's Stories of Australian Cinema is set to premiere on the ABC this year over three episodes. Before that broadcast (the date of which is still under wraps) a theatrical cut will be distributed by Transmission.

Produced for the ABC by Stranger than Fiction's Jo-Anne McGowan (Art+Soul) with support from Screen Australia, Screen Nsw, Adelaide Film Festival and Transmission, Stratton describes the project as "very personal".

"It.s not a history of Australian film at all. It.s called David Stratton.s Stories of Australian Cinema, and it's really just that. Without wanting to sound too pretentious about it, it.s sort of my journey coming to Australia from England, running the Sydney Film Festival for eighteen years, fighting censorship, [and] being at the Sydney Film Festival just as the Australian New Wave was happening with the Peter Weirs and the Gillian Armstrongs and the Fred Schepisis. »

‘Sherlock’ Review: ‘The Lying Detective’ Gives Us Sherlock’s Most Terrifying Villain Yet

8 January 2017 7:30 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Spoilers follow for Season 4, Episode 2, “The Lying Detective.”]

After last week’s damp squib, “Sherlock” is back on form in a genuinely terrifying episode with a shocking conclusion.

The villain of the week is Toby Jones as Culverton Smith, a wealthy and influential public figure beloved by the nation who may or may not have a secret life as a serial killer. While John is back in therapy, Sherlock is back on drugs and publicly accusing Smith of crimes he can’t prove, on account of being…well…off his tits for nearly the entire episode. It’s not until the very end that we know for sure that the great detective is right– Oh, and did we mention that Sherlock has a sister?

Last Week’S Review: ‘The Six Thatchers’ Launches Season 4 With Some Big Changes

“I am a bit creepy, but that’s just my Usp.”

If at times this episode veered dangerously close to horror movie territory, »
