Coming Distractions: The trailer for occult throwback The Love Witch casts an intriguing spell

5 August 2016 2:16 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Director Anna Biller isn’t terribly prolific: Her last feature film, Viva, was completed in 2007. But watching the trailer for her latest, The Love Witch, the reason for the long delay between films becomes obvious. Biller’s eye for period detail is obsessively meticulous, with the director even sewing some of star Samantha Robinson’s costumes herself from vintage patterns. The result could easily be mistaken for a lost potboiler from the late ‘60s or early ’70s, when men’s magazines like Black Magic and Witchcraft and lurid paperbacks fueled the public’s twin fascinations with the occult and the sexual revolution.

The Love Witch takes place at the epicenter of those two movements, as glamorous witch Elaine (Robinson) moves from San Francisco to Northern California to live with her goddess-worshipping friends after the mysterious, possibly occult-related death of her ex-husband.

Doc Corner: 'Zero Days' is One of the Year's Best

12 July 2016 8:33 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Glenn here with our weekly look at documentaries from theatres, festivals, and on demand.

Alex Gibney works with such ferocious regularity that it’s sometimes hard to keep track. Last year alone he had three films released following two the year before that. His latest, Zero Days, falls into the camp of Gibney films in which he most excels - those like Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God and Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room that allow him to exercise his skills at investigative journalism and dig deep into exposing organizations and those who surround them. While it lacks the pop fancies that made Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief such a success, Zero Days is Gibney’s best documentary in years.

Told with all the propulsive, thrilling excitement of a Hollywood spy blockbuster, Zero Days lifts the lid on a series of cybercrimes »

‘Zero Days’ Exclusive Promo: See Alex Gibney’s New Cyberwar Documentary Thriller

6 July 2016 2:37 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Alex Gibney’s latest documentary “Zero Days” tells the story of Stuxnet, a dangerous piece of malware that threatens to destabilize the entire globe. In 2010, Stuxnet was discovered by Sergey Ulasen who found that it targeted industrial control systems. Security experts said that they had never discovered such an elaborate, untraceable malware such as Stuxnet, and concluded that a country’s government was responsible given the immense technological and financial resources required for its creation. It’s soon uncovered that the United States and Israel initially developed Stuxnet to compromise Iranian nuclear facilities, and now it has gone far past its intended target and has put the world in jeopardy.

Zero Days” comprehensively examines the web of intrigue surrounding Stuxnet, how it has aided global espionage and covert assassinations, and how it has redefined weapons for the 21st century. Watch a promo for the film below.
