Four Friends Search for a Jazz Legend in La in 'Flock of Four' Trailer

"Does your mother know you're going down there on a Friday night?" Abramorama has released the first trailer for a hazy, indie drama titled Flock of Four, the feature directorial debut of director Gregory Caruso. We haven't heard much about this yet, but it actually seems like a nifty story for a film, and it looks pretty darn good. Set over the course of one night in 1959, the film follows four best friend teens who drive around Los Angeles searching for one of their music idols, legendary jazz musician Pope Dixon (a fictional character inspired by real musicians), as played by Reg E. Cathey (who passed away in February). The cast includes Braeden Lemasters, Uriah Shelton, Isaac Jay, and Dylan Riley Snyder as the friends, as well as Shane Harper, Coco Jones, and Nadji Jeter. I like the vintage look and feel to this. Take a look. Here's the first

Spirit Awards Nominations: Part 2

Best Male LeadRonald Bronstein"Daddy Longlegs"Beginner's luck? Ronald Bronstein is an award-winning writer-director of indie films. But in writer-directors Josh Safdie and Benny Safdie's film "Daddy Longlegs," he makes his film acting debut. Here he plays Lenny, a divorced father of two young boys who has little grasp on parental responsibility and skill, and even less good judgment.When we first meet Lenny, he pompously mouths off to the school principal in a juvenile defense of his two boys. That scene sets our teeth on edge for what's to come. Lenny takes his sons on vacation with a woman he first met at a bar the night before. He brings the kids to his job as a projectionist, then lets them run wild and even operate the projector—badly. Told he can't bring them again, he gives them a wee dose of sedatives that sends them into Stage 4 sleep for days on end.

Spirit Awards Nominations: Part 1

Best DirectorDarren Aronofsky'Black Swan'In many ways, Darren Aronofsky's "Black Swan" is similar to his previous film, "The Wrestler." Both lead characters are dedicated artists struggling with inner demons. To express themselves, they have only their bodies. Their age, injuries, and mental stability threaten to undermine their art.However, in "Black Swan," Aronofsky masterfully adds another layer. He parallels the journey of Nina Sayers (Natalie Portman) with the tale of "Swan Lake," the tragic ballet in which she performs. The astute viewer will notice his use of black and white in the set pieces of almost every scene, alluding to the contrast between the white and black swans. He adds elements of horror, drama, and paranoia, all of which exist in "Swan Lake." He directs the actors in such a way that you aren't ever sure what is fantasy and what is reality. All of these elements add

2010 Gotham Awards: Winter's Bone - Best Ensemble Performance

If you ask me: this was a fight between an underdog in Winter’s Bone and a favorite in The Kids Are All Right (Annette Bening, Julianne Moore and Mark Ruffalo). The underdog won. With Jennifer Lawrence not winning in Breakthrough Actor award category, this serves as the consolation prize for the actress, but a testament to the cast of almost unknown actors that gave the Ozarks portion of aural America true personality. This goes to Lawrence, John Hawkes, Dale Dickey, Lauren Sweetser, Garret Dillahunt and Kevin BreznahanOther Noms: The Kids Are All Right Annette Bening, Julianne Moore, Mark Ruffalo, Mia Wasikowska, Josh Hutcherson (Focus Features) Life During Wartime Shirley Henderson, Ciarán Hinds, Allison Janney, Michael Lerner, Chris Marquette, Rich Pecci, Charlotte Rampling, Paul Reubens, Ally Sheedy, Dylan Riley Snyder, Renée Taylor, Michael Kenneth Williams (IFC Films) Please Give Catherine Keener, Amanda Peet, Oliver Platt, Rebecca Hall, Ann Guilbert, Lois Smith,

Life During Wartime Review

Life During Wartime Written and Directed by: Todd Solondz Starring: Shirley Henderson, Dylan Riley Snyder, Ciaran Hinds, Paul Reubens Todd Solondz might be the most polarizing comedy director no one’s ever heard of. The reputation of his films precede them and a shroud of controversy seems to surround his work, which frequently depicts explicit sexuality, including pedophilia and rape, not to mention murder, exploitation, and ridicule channeled through a pitch-black misanthropic irony. And yet you might as well be speaking another language bringing up his name and filmography with a mainstream crowd. Even in the circles in which he’s known, his sense of humor is a decidedly acquired taste. So specific, in fact, that his latest film, Life During Wartime, may come as a shock to his fans. And not the sort of shock they’re used to. A direct follow up to probably his most well known film,

Life During Wartime

Life During Wartime

Directed by: Todd Solondz

Cast: Shirley Henderson, Paul Reubens, Alison Janney, Dylan Riley Snyder, Chris Marquette

Running Time: 1 hr 35 mins

Rating: R

Release Date: August 6, 2010 (Limited)

Plot: Twelve years after their father (Hinds) is sent to jail for child molestation, two brothers (Snyder, Marquette) struggle with the idea of forgiveness while suffering through the pain of remembering.

Who’S It For? While this film can stand on its own, those who have already seen Solondz’s Happiness would be at great advantage to re-familiarize themselves with that film’s characters, so that the actor switch-up of this “quasi-sequel” to that 1998 film makes a bit more sense. For those new to Solondz, Life During Wartime is for those who appreciate dark comedies that can plunge into the heaviest shades of black in order to test one’s potential to sympathize with characters of various serious flaws.

Film Review: ‘Life During Wartime’ Provides Haunting Coda to ‘Happiness’

Rating: 3.0/5.0

Chicago – Todd Solondz’s 1998 masterpiece, “Happiness,” is the darkest American comedy ever made. It’s so brutal and uncompromising that it calls into question the very definition of comedy. When one character explains to her sister that she isn’t laughing at her, but with her, the sister responds, “But I’m not laughing.” Solondz isn’t laughing either.

Like many provocateurs, Solondz has been accused of resorting to cheap shock tactics and stereotypes when attempting to portray his distinctively disturbing worldview. Yet Solondz is nothing if not sincere. His films directly confront the puritanical and judgmental instincts embedded in the human psyche that prevent us from identifying with others. He forces us to acknowledge the humanity lying within society’s most reviled creatures, particularly those suffering from arrested sexual development. The riotous laughter that “Happiness” elicited from audiences was undoubtedly caused by extreme discomfort rather than unbridled hilarity.
