Casey Affleck follows up his Best Actor Oscar win this year with an extraordinary performance in this unique and moving existential fantasy drama that will surely haunt next season’s awards ceremonies.
Affleck stars alongside Rooney Mara, twice Oscar-nominated for her roles in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and Carol. There is a wonderful poignancy between the pair, who, torn apart by grief, must come to terms with the implications of their mortality. The supporting cast includes an inspired appearance by acclaimed musician Will Oldham.

There’s also a deleted scene and two featurettes, which this clip comes from as the director and Casey Affleck discuss how, in a sense, this film picks up his relationship between Rooney Mara’s character in Ain’t Them Bodies Saint.

Most people can't see Pete's friendly, furry dragon. And after some original fans get a look at the new creation, they might wish they'd never seen this thing. It looks more like a cat than a dragon. But perhaps that's the point. To make it look like a giant, happy pet? The original Pete's Dragon was released in 1977, and it's been nearly 40 years since we've seen Elliott the Dragon back on the big screen.

Kevin Macdonald’s been busy. Alternating between feature films and documentaries (he had one of each in 2013), he’s back with an action thriller in 2014. While a preliminary plot synopsis doesn’t quite spark the imagination, Macdonald’s got a knack for off the cuff momentum, even in material that’s sometimes a bit tepid (2009′s State of Play, for instance). An unassuming cast adds to intrigue.

It comes as no surprise that several folks on our inaugural AMW25 list are making huge strides in indiewood but where we are serendipitously pleased is how these artisans move into other creative outlets as is the case with Jade Healy. Moving from producer to Production Designer (her work was most recently featured in the Sundance preemed Song One) and now into her feature directorial debut territory with Vestige — which already has a pair of aces in cinematographer Ben Richardson, and producer (damn fine filmmaker in his own right) David Lowery in the fold.

Wally Pfister, cinematographer for Christopher Nolan’s Batman films, along with a number of other high profile titles, makes his directorial debut with Transcendence, from first time screenwriter, Jack Paglen (who purportedly also penned Prometheus 2). Of course, Pfister was able to line up a spectacular cast, so we’re hoping this is a sci-fi flick that has more substance than slick visuals.

A Filmmaker Magazine’s 25 New Faces of Independent Film of 2011, David Lowery commenced the 2012 at January Sundance Screenwriters Laband quickly began filming in the summer. Ain’t Them Bodies Saints has some brilliant technical folk behind the camera in Cinematographer Bradford Young and Production Designer Jade Healy, and has some heavy hitters in front of the lenses with Rooney Mara, Ben Foster and Casey Affleck.

Ever since Fangoria Radio had Cropsey filmmakers Barbara Brancaccio and Joshua Zeman as guests way back in May, I was interested in seeing the Staten Island-lensed documentary, in which the two local filmmakers return to investigate and shed some light on the mystery surrounding five missing children. They were said to have been abducted by real-life bogeyman Andre Rand, and speculation about their fates developed into an urban legend about a man named Cropsey who would kidnap kids. Brancaccio and Zeman grew up only a few miles apart,
