Year in Review: The Best of Criterion in 2012

26 December 2012 9:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

It seems like every year we have to begin this particular article with the disclaimer that we aren’t necessarily talking about the best releases Criterion put upon us this calendar year. If one made a list of top 10 home releases in a given year one could conceivably litter that list with nothing but Criterion releases, and still find themselves in the same predicament. Here, our approach to this article has, more often than not, been based on a wow factor in one of many different areas. Either a wow for the presentation of the release, a wow for the personal discovery of something previously unknown, a wow for the collective power of a set, or, occasionally the most fun, a wow for the “I can’t believe Criterion released that….I’m really happy Criterion decided to release that…but seriously can you believe they released that?” This year was no different in any of those »

Sound on Sight’s Best TV of 2012

18 December 2012 9:02 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

10. (tie) The Thick of It

Is there a better tonic for election-year hype than an Armando Iannucci series? The apparently-final series of the show that made Iannucci’s name, The Thick Of It, upped the ante on its pitch-black style, stripping nearly all of its characters of any remaining semblances of humanity and daring us to laugh as it does so. What other television comedy could get away with a penultimate episode that spends a full hour on a set of realistically rendered government inquiry hearings and not lose a step? As we say goodbye to Malcolm Tucker (the brilliant Peter Capaldi) and the rest, it’s clear that Iannucci has crafted one of the most consistently great political satires in television history.

Blu-ray: HBO’s Girls: A raw, honest cavalcade of emotional foibles

17 December 2012 6:01 AM, PST | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

HBO’s Girls, created by and starring Lena Dunham, is a smart and boisterous take on four 20’s women navigating their way through New York City’s treacherous emotional landscape. It’s a cavalcade of awkward humor and misbegotten decisions that all seem “right” in the moment. Flirting with your older, married boss may give you a few fleeting laughs, but that’s only until he shows up at a party with a bottle of wine hoping for an intimate evening. Then, there are those unfortunate incidents where an innocent girl accidentally smokes crack and ends up running through Williamsburg half naked. Sure, reality is bent and heightened at times for comedic effect, but these Girls are truth. This freshman season is filled with nonstop fem-foibles that only get funnier with each viewing.

The Blu-ray release collects the ten episode series and bundles it with a few fun bonus features »

With Regards to Lena Dunham

13 December 2012 4:00 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Hello, lovelies. Beau here, discussing a unique talent whose first foray into television just released on DVD and Blu-Ray for all the sorry souls deprived of the best network on television.

Lena Dunham might be the most divisive director of her generation. Self-deprecating, incisive, witty, aware to a fault, she’s what would happen if Diane Keaton and Miranda July met and had tea using Amy Heckerling as a footstool. But at the same time, her characters and their individual dilemmas are direct reflections of their generation, behaviors indicative of a group of twenty-somethings who devoured Palahniuk and shit out Klosterman. They Know What They’re Doing And They Are Smarter Than You. Hipsters cum Proselytizers. Join us or be deemed irrelevant.

I’ve talked with several co-workers, friends, relatives who’ve watched either Tiny Furniture or Girls (or both) and find her writing and her characterizations insufferable. Others still find it remarkable and on-the-nose, »

Tribeca Film Releasing Alex Karpovsky's Rubberneck in February 2013

7 December 2012 1:08 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Tribeca Film has extended its relationship with multi-hyphenate Alex Karpovsky, acquiring North American rights to Rubberneck, a film he co-wrote, directed, and starred in, and plans to release it in February 2013. Read on for more details and a new still.

Tribeca Film's release plans include select theatrical screenings and offering the film on demand in more than 40 million homes in the U.S. and Canada through a variety of video-on-demand offerings as well as iTunes, Amazon Watch Instantly, Vudu, Xbox, Google Play, and YouTube.

Rubberneck had its world premiere at the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival and has had a robust showing at festivals internationally thereafter. A slow-burn character study-turned-psychosexual thriller, Rubberneck, co-written by Karpovsky and Garth Donovan, is a chillingly believable story of workplace romance gone wrong. It co-stars Jaime Ray Newman and Dennis Staroselsky and was produced by Michael Bowes, Garth Donovan, and Adam Roffman.

Tribeca Films Loves Alex Karpovsky, Picks Up Both 'Red Flag' and 'Rubberneck'

6 December 2012 10:28 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Tribeca Films has picked up North American rights for two films by Alex Karpovsky, "Rubberneck" and "Red Flag." Both films Karpovsky wrote and starred in, and center on a young man's awkward navigation of relationships. "Rubberneck" (read our Toh! review here) premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in April, and "Red Flag" had its debut at this summer's Los Angeles Film Festival. Tribeca has theatrical and VOD releases planned for February, 2013. Karpovsky is one of the many artists who received the Lena Dunham boost following the success of "Tiny Furniture" in 2010. Karpovsky had a supporting role in that film, and went on to get parts in Mike Birbiglia's "Sleepwalk With Me," as well as Dunham's Emmy-nominated HBO comedy "Girls." In the pipeline for Karpovsky is the Coen brothers' "Inside Llewyn Davis," which may pop up at Cannes 2013, and Daniel Schlecter's »

Tribeca Film Doubles Down With Alex Karpovsky On “Rubberneck” and “Red Flag”

6 December 2012 5:00 AM, PST | TribecaFilm.com | See recent Tribeca Film news »

In the Tribeca Film tradition of nurturing emerging filmmakers, we proudly announce our acquisitions of the North American rights to Rubberneck and Red Flag, the two latest projects from actor-writer-director Alex Karpovsky, best known for his roles in Tiny Furniture, Sleepwalk With Me and HBO's Girls. Both of these exceptional films explore relationships and how we connect with one another, albeit in two very different ways. Rubberneck premiered at the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival and later went on to tour the festival circuit. Filmed on-location in Boston, the film follows an unstable research scientist who slowly becomes obsessed with a beautiful co-worker. Starring Karpovsky, Jamie Ray Newman and Dennis Staroselsky, this slow-burn character-study-turned-psychosexual-thriller is an alarmingly believable story of a workplace romance gone horribly wrong. Red Flag world-premiered on the West Coast at the 2012 Los Angeles Film Festival and has continued to delight Festival »

Lone Star Films Will Shine at Sundance in 2013

5 December 2012 11:30 AM, PST | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

The Sundance Film Festival has announced most of its 2013 film program, which includes a pleasantly surprising number of films from the Lone Star State. Austin filmmaker Richard Linklater will premiere Before Midnight, the sequel to Before Sunset (2004) and Before Sunrise (1995), with Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy (pictured above) reprising their roles as their characters cross paths again. Local company Stuck On On was involved in the movie's post-production.

Take Shelter director Jeff Nichols' new film Mud, starring sometimes-Austinite Matthew McConaughey, native Texan Joe Don Baker and Reese Witherspoon will have its North American premiere at the Utah festival, having wowed audiences and critics alike at Cannes earlier this year. Young actor Tye Sheridan (Tree of Life) from Elkhart, Texas, stars as one of the young boys who befriends McConaughey's title character. As with Take Shelter, Nichols utilized Stuck On On for sound post-production and Austin composer David Wingo for Mud. »

30 November 2012 12:18 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

One of the major hits for HBO in the past television season was the freshman half hour show Girls.

'Girls' Star Alex Karpovsky on Season 2, How the Cast Handles Reviews and Why It's Fun to Play a Jerk

28 November 2012 9:58 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

A familiar face to those in the New York City indie film scene, Alex Karpovsky's profile is on the rise. Both an actor and director, he had a very busy 2012; he wrote, directed and starred in two films -- Red Flag and Rubberneck -- and had a supporting role in his friend Lena Dunham's monster hit HBO series, Girls. He and Dunham, both New York City residents, go way back; he co-starred in her 2010 breakout film Tiny Furniture. With several other films on his plate, including a role in Joel and Ethan Coen's Inside Llewyn Davis, he's going to

Hannah, Marnie, Jessa & Adam Are Back In First Images From 'Girls' Season 2

26 November 2012 12:59 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Here we go again. Let's cue up the Criterion Collection whiners about "Tiny Furniture" or those others who feel Lena Dunham hasn't paid whatever ephemeral dues she needs to in order to qualify for the acclaim she has earned thus far at the age of 26. Haters gonna hate, but frankly Dunham is doing just fine without those folks, and less than a year after "Girls" made a serious splash on HBO, season 2 is on the way. The first images from the upcoming series of episodes with Hannah, Marnie, Jessa (where's her husband?) and Adam (broken leg, after being hit by a car in the season finale) all back are here via EW. And there's lots of questions to be answered in the next batch of shows, including what remains of Hannah and Marnie's relationship and whether or not Shoshanna and Ray are still together. ''You know how an infant doubles »

Ti West’s 'The Sacrament' Lines Up Joe Swanberg, Aj Bowen, Amy Seimetz & More For The Slaughter

29 October 2012 12:53 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Already three weeks into production in Savannah, Georgia, it was puzzling many who would actually be rounding out the cast of “House of the Devil” and “The Innkeepers” helmer Ti West’s latest venture into the horror genre, “The Sacrament.” Perhaps as a Halloween gift of sorts, Worldview Entertainment – who is financing and producing this film along with a whole slate of projects including Eli Roth’s directorial comeback “The Green Inferno”— has announced the cast of the film, and it’s an altogether familiar but enticing one. It looks as if “V/H/S” actor, filmmaker, and all-around Bff Joe Swanberg will be returning to work in front of the camera for his buddy West, along with genre favorite Aj Bowen (“The Signal,” “House of the Devil”), Amy Seimetz (“Tiny Furniture”), Kentucker Audley (“V/H/S”), and Gene Jones (“No Country for Old »

What are Your Thoughts on Celebrity Political Endorsements?

28 October 2012 5:39 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

From Lena Dunham ("Girls", Tiny Furniture) to Joss Whedon (The Avengers) to Clint Eastwood, celebrities are stumping for their choice in the 2012 Election. Do their views have an effect on you politically or personally? Do you look at them differently when you see them in character? Yes, this is a movie site, but at this moment in time the 2012 Election has all of our attention. I will admit, however, this year's election doesn't have as much of my attention as 2008's, where I was watching so much coverage that I was able to write an article casting a potential movie covering the entirety of the election. Nope, this year things have been far quieter politically in my household, but it still hasn't escaped my attention that movie and television stars and their directors are out there stumping for politicians. Personally, it's a little hard to ignore and considering these are »

24 October 2012 11:14 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The show centres on O’Dowd’s character Tom Chadwick who is going through a bit of a rough time after being fired from his job and breaking up with his girlfriend.
