Life Coach: Mills’ Debut a Showcase for Own Multi-talents

Toronto based filmmaker Pat Mills makes his directorial debut with Guidance, a dark hearted comedy that gets a lot of traction from exaggerated, inappropriate behavior draping its endearing core. Aping the hook of Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star (2003), Mills manages to surpass David Spade’s limitations with a basic premise that has a myriad of possibilities, and, as far as comedies hinged on adults behaving badly goes, Mills’ film works on a variety of entertaining levels. Director, screenwriter, and star, his strongest asset happens to be himself in an entertaining performance that is as unabashedly off-putting as it is strangely empathetic. His onscreen persona manages to help us overlook some of the film’s minor sleights to the development of supporting characters necessary for the attempted third act pathos. Nevertheless, this is an impressionable first feature, one deserving of attention as

To the Lighthouse: Aloupis Crafts Woefully Sluggish Tale of Truck Stop Tendencies

Serving up a generous helping of outsider character study with teenage romance tinged by a demure, rosy hued examination of prostitution is director Tony Aloupis’ debut, Safelight, a film collecting a surprisingly talented cast considering its rather tepid platitudes. A 1970s era slice of nostalgic beats, the truckstop set film is neither a notable throwback to the era it wishes to recall nor an engaging examination of disparate souls coming together across the aching chasms of abuse and cruelty they’ve suffered through.

Disabled teen Charles (Evan Peters) struggles to get through a rather humdrum existence. His mother abandoned him when he was a child, and he’s now stuck caring for his ailing father (Jason Beghe) while he works at a truckstop counter under the caring eye of Peg (Christine Lahti). He has a passion for photography,

Magic Magic Trailer Has Creepy Michael Cera Torment Juno Temple in Chile

Chilean director Sebastián Silva (The Maid, Old Cats, Life Kills Me) makes his English language debut with this psychological thriller featuring intimidation, hypnosis and maybe just a bit of overwrought villainy on the part of Michael CeraMaria Full of Grace star Catalina Sandino and Emily "Babydoll" Browning also appear in supporting roles. The film played (quietly) at Sundance this year, and while it never secured a theatrical release, it is coming to DVD/VOD in August.  Personally, I'm still waiting for Juno Temple to become a bonafide star, as the right part has eluded her even as she brings a significant freshness to whatever project she turns up in. None of these (Killer Joe, Cracks, The Brass Teapot, Dirty Girl, Mr. Nobody) got any mainstream notice. While I...

2013 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: George Tillman Jr.’s The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete

Certainly feels like the director and producer who has only delivered in mainstream items (Soul Food, Men of Honor, Beauty Shop, Notorious) is trying on a new hat of sorts with the spunky titled The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete. George Tillman Jr.’s latest appears to tap into the more authentic, inner city borough pics featuring kids in survival mode a la Raising Victor Vargas or Chop Shop. Starring Anthony Mackie, Jeffrey Wright (pic on the left), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Jennifer Hudson, Jordin Sparks (see tweet pic top right) and a pair of first-time on the big screen young thesps in the lead roles, filming took place during the summer, has been post-production since late August and features tech crew work by the likes of Production Designer Jane Musky (Why Stop Now) and Cinematographer Reed Morano (For Ellen).

Little Birds | Review

Teenage Wasteland: Elgin James Gives Us Teen Angst for Debut

A Sundance Lab creation, Elgin James’ debut, Little Birds is a strong first effort, one borne primarily from an interesting mutation of the professed director’s own life experiences, which he was at first going to film. Somehow, gangland activities turned into a coming of age tale of two adolescent females, and the result, while not entirely breaking new ground, manages to reach an affecting grace, one that manages to gear up into a tense boil.

Best friends Lily (Juno Temple) and Alison (Kay Panabaker), are continuously on the lookout for more exciting activities in their ramshackle Salton Sea town, where decaying plant matter permeates the air, and local denizens are either comfortable in their boredom or violent in their wish to escape from it. Of the two, Lily is definitely the more rebellious and defiant, obviously eager to discover boys,
