iW Reviews in Rewind: 12/10.

It has been a somewhat crowded week for indieWIRE reviews. (And a big week for indieWIRE's history.) Links to coverage of this weekend's new releases follow. You Wont Miss Me Ry Russo-Young’s “You Wont Miss Me” wound up in the experimental New Frontiers section at the Sundance Film Festival in 2009, and won the Best Film Coming to a Theater Near You prize at the Gotham Awards that fall. It arrives in limited release nearly two years after the initial premiere with a long trail of responses that speak to its divisive nature. Is Russo-Young’s sophomore feature a feeble collection… »

Ry Russo-Young Takes Some "Me" Time

8 December 2010 12:31 PM, PST | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

When speaking to Ry Russo-Young, the adjective "abstract" will come up a lot in conversation in terms of the style of her films. But that shouldn't be confused with the substance, which is so emotionally precise. Where many filmmakers have depicted the fear and uncertainty of twentysomethings with quirk and gorgeously lit indifference, Russo-Young portrays it in a grainy haze in her latest film "You Wont Miss Me," the result of her practical use of a variety of formats, ranging from Flip cams to Super 8s, and the world-weary skepticism of her main character Shelly Brown (Stella Schnabel) that rarely allows for clarity.

As refreshingly tough-minded a character study as Brown is a character, the film was born out of Russo-Young's desire to do something with Schnabel, a friend since elementary school, and developed from a three-hour interview where Schnabel first portrayed the wild, eternally frustrated Shelly into a loose-knit »

"You Wont Miss Me," Reviewed

6 December 2010 2:54 PM, PST | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

This review originally ran as part of our coverage of the 2009 Sundance Film Festival.

"You Wont Miss Me" is all about Shelly Brown, a girl with the kind of problems plenty of 20-somethings dream of moving to New York for the express purpose of having: substance abuse, reckless hookups in her bedraggled Williamsburg apartment with shaggy boys who mistreat her, sudden fights with friends and strangers, an unseen actress mother who doesn't pay her enough attention, and no job beyond auditioning for roles herself. But the film, the second from director Ry Russo-Young, isn't your average chronicle of dabblings in urban self-destruction, because Shelly, as she's begun to realize herself, can't turn down the volume. She's not crazy -- the film is structured around fractions of her exit interview with the psychiatrist tossing from a mental hospital because she doesn't belong there -- but she's the kind of person who »

Ry Russo-Young's Top Ten Films of All Time

3 December 2010 7:00 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Have you ever wondered what are the films that inspire the next generation of visionary filmmakers? As part of our monthly Ioncinephile profile (read here), we ask the filmmaker the incredibly arduous task of identifying their top ten list of favorite films. We cap off the year with Ry Russo-Young, whose Sundance Film Festival selected and Gotham Award winner You Wont Miss Me finally receives a December 10th release followed by a nationwide roll out. Here are Ry's Top 10 Films. Close-Up - Abbas Kiarostami (1990) "This film articulates the complex dialogue between art and life. Part documentary, part staged re-enactment with real subjects, it’s about the trial of a man who impersonates the filmmaker Mohsen Makhmalbaf."   The Conversation - Francis Ford Coppola (1974) "The way sound is used, the paranoia and the incredible use of Gene Hackman’s grey raincoat."   Days of Heaven - Terrence Malick (1978) "I know a lot of »

2010 Gotham Award Noms: Focus on Best Films Not Playing at a Theater Near You

19 October 2010 7:05 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

I thought we'd take a closer look at the five films selected in the Best Film Not Playing at a Theater Near You category a.k.a the "fringe" titles that receive a helping hand and some extra love just by being nominated and have very little to do with batch of other films mentioned in yesterday's Gotham award nominations announcement. Previous winners in the section include 2009's You Wont Miss Me, 2008's Sita Sings the Blues, 2007's Frownland, 2006's Choking Man and 2005's I Am a Sex Addict, but this year a documentary could win with a ratio that sees three docs and a pair of narratives. I was only familiar with two of the five in Robert Greene's Kati with an i and Mike Ott's Littlerock, so logically I thought about whipping up breakdown of the section and presenting the mentioned pair and Francine Cavanaugh and »

Factory 25 Places Straitjacket on Ry Russo-Young's 'You Wont Miss Me'

19 July 2010 2:00 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Ry Russo-Young's pseudo fictional experimental account (a breath of fresh air in the context of the 30 odd films I saw at 2009's Sundance Film Festival) will finally receive some a theatrical release via the Factory 25 folks. Albeit it'll be a short two weeks and then a DVD release - which could be read as a derogatory remark of sorts, but instead I'm glad that a new Palm Pictures type of label have emerged. The Brooklyn based company are taking on low budget doc films and indie features such You Wont Miss Me and providing filmmakers to at least have a vehicle it's Doa. The pic starring Stella Schnabel will be released on November 12th at the Cinema Village - which is about 3 weeks before her father's film (Miral) from Julian is released via the Weinstein Co. We recently reported that Russo-Young recently paired up with Tiny Furniture's creator »

Today's Sundance Institute announcement on the make-up of this Summer's Directors and Screenwriters Labs offers some insight on the projects we should be seeing in future editions of the festival but also updates us on the progression of some projects we've already got our eyes on -- as is the case with Sean Durkin's upcoming first feature film and Ondi Timoner's (see pic) fictional debut.
