A staple of the Sundance Film Festival since Courtney Hunt’s Frozen River in ’08, her Park City premiered filmography as a cinematographer was followed by Little Birds, Shut Up And Play The Hits, For Ellen, Kill Your Darlings, The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete, and last year’s The Skeleton Twins and War Story. Late this summer, Reed Morano took an all-encompassing approach to visual storytelling, taking on double duties as director first, cinematographer second. Olivia Wilde toplines Meadowland and the hard-hitting drama includes the likes of Luke Wilson, John Leguizamo, Elisabeth Moss, Giovanni Ribisi, Juno Temple, Kevin Corrigan, Scott Mescudi and Ty Simpkins. The ideal kind of auteur theory should be more inclusive. Add cinematographers. Case in point.
Gist: Written by Chris Rossi, this follows a couple, David and Sarah, dealing with their son’s disappearance. David finds solace in a traditional form of healing, only to lose his moral compass. »

Looking for trouble
The beautiful, bleak landscape of the Tyrol; two orphaned children living alone on a remote farm; a gang of men whose brutal actions reshape all their lives. This is Autumn Blood, the stunnning début film from Markus Blunder starring Beautiful Kate’s Sophie Lowe and young Austrian TV star Maximilian Harnisch. It originated, Blunder says, with “a very brave woman that shared with me a story from her childhood,” and he was drawn to take up the challenge of directing because “My life was filled with darkness and bright light. There is many things I want to communicate to the world.”
Blunder has a complex background, starting out in music videos and moving on to secure a stellar reputation as an advertising director. Trained as an actor, he directs theatre and had brought these disparate aspects of his work together in Autumn Blood, »

We have all been there before. Say, for example, you have a movie like Autumn Blood, which was made waaay back in 2011, then made a splash on the festival circuit in 2013 and is just coming out in cinemas and VOD on September 19. It has been so long coming how will you even recognize it? Well have no fear because we have the key art; which features the same go-to three panel layout that too many action films get these days. I got to get my hands on this template! Then we have some stills from the production to share with you.Two young orphans in the Tirolian Mountains come under siege by a vicious band of hunters.

I don't remember the last time I did an MPAA ratings bulletin and didn't have a single title in my movie database, but today brings us exactly that. In fact, the only film on the list I even have any remote familiarity with is Wrong Turn 6: Last Resort from director Valeri Milev and is expected to hit DVD and Blu-ray from Fox Home Entertainment on October 31. Otherwise, not much to talk about... Autumn Blood Rated R For violence including rape, and nudity. Break Point Rated R For language and sexual references. A Matter of Faith Rated PG For mild thematic elements. Plastic Rated R For strong violence, sexuality/nudity, language throughout and some drug use. Seven Assassins Rated R For violence. Take Me to the River Rated PG For thematic material, language and smoking. Under Wraps Rated PG For some scary images, rude humor and action. Wrong Turn 6: Last Resort »
