Family Drama Goodbye to All That Strikes One Note

Family Drama Goodbye to All That Strikes One Note
From the first moments of Goodbye to All That, when Otto Wall (Paul Schneider) is jogging past vibrant autumn foliage to the strains of a Haydn piano concerto, Angus MacLachlan's directorial debut feels like a 1980s Alan Alda dramedy (The Four Seasons, A New Life). Otto is a comfortably oblivious white-collar suburban dad who's unaware that tween daughter Edie (Audrey Scott) worries about his safety — or that his wife, Annie (Melanie Lynskey), is filing divorce papers. "Why do these things always happen to Daddy?" Edie asks after an Atv accident hobbles the marathon runner. "He doesn't pay attention," answers the weary Annie, and that's as insightful as MacLachlan's script gets. Otto's inattention is manifested in clumsiness and bad luck. Oth...

Tribeca Film Review: ‘Goodbye to All That’

Tribeca Film Review: ‘Goodbye to All That’
Back in 2005, “Junebug” launched more than just Amy Adams’ career, though writer Angus MacLachlan has taken considerably longer to follow through on the charming, human-centric sensibility auds found so appealing about his first feature-length script. Now, nearly a decade later, the North Carolina scribe makes the transition to directing with “Goodbye to All That,” another gently relatable, regionally inclined dramedy, this one concerning a semi-oblivious husband (Paul Schneider) caught completely off-guard when his wife (Melanie Lynskey) files for divorce. While too low-concept to support an easy marketing play, this amiable indie rewards adult auds who’ve outgrown cookie-cutter romantic comedies.

Schneider earned an acting prize at the Tribeca Fim Festival for his irresistible portrayal of Otto Wall, an ordinary guy in his late 30s who spent entire decades of his life uncertain what he wanted, but now, as a husband and father, is pretty sure he’s figured it all

Afs Brings 'About Sunny' to Austin This Week

Amid the desolate Las Vegas skyline, a young single mother must decide what sacrifices need to be made in order for the survival of herself and child in writer/director Bryan Wizemann's feature-length debut film About Sunny, which Austin Film Society will screen Thursday at 7:30 pm in the Afs Screening Room as part of its Best of the Fests series. 

The drama, which premiered on the festival circuit under the less emotional and more unfocused title Think of Me, is based on Wizemann's childhood experiences with his single mother in Las Vegas. 

As a child of a single mother myself, I was drawn to the relationship between Angela (Lauren Ambrose) and her eight-year-old daughter Sunny, played by newcomer and Texan Audrey P. Scott. The duo's interactions with each other involve relatively little dialogue, and when they are having a conversation it feels trite and one-sided, making it apparent

Film Review: Lauren Ambrose Shines in Heartbreaking Indie ‘About Sunny’

Chicago – In the annals of bad parenting portrayed on film, the heroine of Bryan Wizemann’s 2011 indie drama is a special case indeed. Though we watch helplessly as she makes countless bad decisions guaranteed to send her young daughter to intensive therapy, we don’t regard her a sinister figure on the order of Monique’s monstrous matriarch in “Precious.” Our gaze is one of empathy.

Rating: 3.5/5.0

That’s because Wizemann’s film is remarkably observant in its exploration of the factors that led this single mother, Angela, to commit such desperate acts. She embodies the anxiety and rage of a working class that feels utterly abandoned by its own country. It’s difficult to be a nurturing parent when you’re living from paycheck to paycheck while struggling to keep your head above water in a society consistently at odds with your needs. Yet instead of transforming the tale into a political polemic,

Blu-ray Review: "The Man Who Shook The Hand Of Vincente Fernandez" (2012) Starring Ernest Borgnine In His Final Performance

  • CinemaRetro
By Lee Pfeiffer

Ernest Borgnine's final film, The Man Who Shook the Hand of Vincente Fernandez has been released on Blu-ray on the Indican video label. The following is my review of the film's recent theatrical release:

The independent production is a modestly-budgeted family comedy/drama that presents the legendary Oscar-winner with the kind of showcase role that actors in their nineties almost never have. Borgnine makes the most of it, too, giving a terrific and moving performance that earned him the Best Actor award at last year's Newport Film Festival. Written and produced by Elia Petridis, Fernandez centers on Rex Page (Borgnine), a cantankerous old coot given to griping about every aspect of life. He seems oblivious to the fact that he has an adoring wife (June Squibb), a devoted middle-aged daughter (Dale Dickey) and and a worshipful granddaughter (Audrey P. Scott). Rex is frustrated by his failure

Universal Soldier is being made into TV Show

Universal Soldier is being rebooted, remade into a TV Show. The Universal Soldier TV series is being penned by Damian Kindler and is being brought to the small screen by Fremantle Media. Allen Shapiro and Craig Baumgarten, both of whom produced the original 1992 Universal Soldier film – directed by Roland Emmerich - will executive produce the TV series.

I found this story strange since John Hyams is currently making Universal Soldier: A New Dimension with Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren, Scott Adkins, Rus Blackwell, Mariah Bonner, Audrey P. Scott, David Jensen, Adam Sibley, James DuMont, Roy Jones Jr., Christopher Severio, Juli Erickson, and David Lee Valle. The film has not even been released yet. I thought Michael Jai White was starring in the film as well, reported here: Universal Soldier: A New Dimension: Michael Jai White joins Damme, Lundgren, but a quick check of his IMDb page and the Universal Soldier: A New Dimension

[Tiff Review] Think of Me

  • The Film Stage
Set in a city landscape far removed from the artificial glamour of Las Vegas (ground heavily treaded in other indie films), Think of Me attempts to understand a would be Casey Anthony-type of mother. However, perhaps like Anthony – Lauren Ambrose’s Angela is a child herself. Making the best of having a child, writer/director Bryan Wizemann’s camera is observant, following in the traditions of neorealism. Much of the seediest behavior is implied and perhaps our imagination can be far worse.

The film works as well as it does due to a tour de force performance by Lauren Ambrose who first came on my radar as Chicklet in Psycho Beach Party. Similar to Chicklet, it takes a smart person to play someone with a certain set of real world knowledge, while lacking a total understanding of her surroundings. Her performance is masterful. When in the presence of her daughter

Tiff 2011 – The First Four Days: Ricky D’s Blog Plus 18 Reviews To Digest

We are now four days into the Toronto International Film Festival which runs a total of ten days so I felt it would be best to look back at some of the coverage we’ve posted thus far. Admittedly we are all a bit behind but we do intend on catching up before the fest if over. So far this year the festival hasn’t been as exciting for me as compared to previous years. Most of my time is spent running around from one cinema to the next, networking and trying to find some time to maintain the site and do some writing. The first day is usually a write off spent picking up tickets, finding a place to stay and meeting up with some old friends, so unfortunately my movie watching only began on Friday evening. So I’ve decided that in the future, I will arrive in

Tiff 2011: ‘Into the Abyss’ – ‘Where Do We Go Now?’ – ‘Think of Me’

Into the Abyss

Directed by Werner Herzog

USA, 2011

In the context of a documentary that’s been billed as being about death row, “Tell me about an encounter with a squirrel” might seem like an entirely nonsensical interview demand. Yet, for the inimitably disarming Werner Herzog, it works like a charm, and succeeds in eliciting one of the many poignant moments that punctuate Into the Abyss. Actually less about death row than the general, fascinating fallout of a staggeringly senseless triple homicide, the film addresses all aspects of the event, from the initial investigation to the eventual execution of one of the young perpetrators, who is interviewed just days before he is scheduled to die. Herzog, certainly, is anti-capital punishment, but Into the Abyss is far from an “issue documentary” in the Michael Moore vein, and achieves a sensitive balance. This sensitivity, in turn, combined with Herzog’s ability to
