A while back, when we released the 400th episode of the Sound On Sight podcast, a few close friends and longtime listeners requested we compile a list of our favorite shows we recorded over the years. Now that the podcast has officially come to an end, I decided to finally set aside some time in my schedule and give them what they want. Initially, I set out to pick ten, but after 500 recordings and 8 long years, it was simply too hard to choose so few, so I opted for 20 instead. In selecting these episodes, I tried to show the wide range of genres we covered over the years, including Spaghetti Westerns, Italian Horror, Southern Gothic, underground cult, family friendly, foreign language and even Hollywood classics. We’ve been blessed with several guest hosts and interviews with many filmmakers including genre legends George A. Romero and John Landis, to name a few. »
Harmony Korine gives good interview. Particularly in his early days as an enfant terrible, you had no idea whether what he would say was on the level or a spur of the moment, madcap declaration. As he's gotten older, he's mellowed on trying to mess with interviewers, yet his films remain just as singular. His next is "The Trap," set against the backdrop of the Miami music scene, and it looks like "Spring Breakers" was just an appetizer for what's to come, as he revealed in a lengthy, terrific talk with Marc Maron. It's “a complete sensory bombardment,” he said about the movie, which is about a gangster rapper (played by Idris Elba) who becomes the target of revenge by an ex-con recently released from fourteen years in prison (Benicio Del Toro), with Robert Pattinson as part of the latter's crew and Al Pacino as a parole officer. Korine confirmed »

You may have thought you'd never see Kyle Chandler don Coach Taylor's blue uniform again, but you would be wrong. The Friday Night Lights actor reprised his iconic role for Alamo Drafthouse, and we're one "Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose" away from completely losing it. Trust us, this is so much better than the time James Franco told you not to talk during Spring Breakers. Watch, enjoy, sob later in the bath. »

Field, Benjamin Friedberg and Mike Weber will produce for Radar. “Brackish Water,” set in Louisiana’s criminal underworld, was developed by Harald and Friedberg after the latter signed an overall producing deal with Radar.
The duo then commenced production on a short film as a “proof of concept” teaser — a growing trend in the world of independent production. Harald and Friedberg raised the funds to create the short via an equity investor and are in the process of completing financing to shoot the film in late 2015.
“To find a company that completely gets this gritty twist on the revenge thriller and also happens to have produced stacks of films that I love feels like a perfect marriage,” said Harald.
The logline is under wraps. »

Directed by Sean Baker
Director Sean Baker (Starlet, Prince of Broadway, Take Out) was reportedly inspired to make Tangerine, after observing the customers of a donut shop in Hollywood’s red-light district. Tangerine’s stars are a pair of first-time actresses, Kitana Kiki Rodriguez and Mya Taylor. They play two trans sex workers – Sin-Dee, who’s just been released from a 28-day stint in prison for drug possession – and her best friend Alexandra who prepares for a gig singing at a local nightclub. The film follows the duo over the course of a day – opening on a donut shop which serves as one of the key locations the two transitioning male-to-female call girls hang out. It’s the morning of Christmas Eve at the sketchy intersection of Santa Monica and Highland in Los Angeles and Alexandra and Sin-Dee are sharing a red-and-green sprinkled donut. »

The first single from Selena Gomez's next album is here, and it truly is Spring Breakers meets Dope. Dubbed "Good for You," it's a sultry slow jam that has good girl Gomez joining forces with badass A$AP Rocky to try to look really good for someone. The result is a very breathy, seductive plea. "I just wanna look good for ya," she sings. "I just wanna look good for ya, good for ya." She just really wants to look good for this person, you know?

Directed by David Gordon Green
Manglehorn dabbles in the strange and peculiar, but at its core, it may be director David Gordon Green’s safest and least rewarding drama yet. The film contains weird scribbles in its margins, but the narrative is overwhelmingly slight. A.J. Manglehorn (Al Pacino) is a grizzled locksmith and wounded soul living in small-town Texas, still aching for a woman named Clara who got away many years ago. He sends regretful letters to her like clockwork but they always find a way back to his mailbox unread. Manglehorn now spends his days cutting locks, looking after his ill cat and making kind, flirty conversation with Dawn (Holly Hunter), the friendly bank teller he visits each week.
It’s often tricky to pigeonhole Green, whose work has shifted from lyrical indie to stoner-comedy, and now, he’s found a brief »
