Whether rotoscoping, hybridizing Cubism and Constructivism, or dabbling in Abstract Expressionism, though, you always know it’s an Ushev film because of its content and craftsmanship. His latest is no different, the adoption of woodcutting lending an old school storybook feel to a tale that speaks towards today’s climate of hope and despair. Narrated by Caroline Dhavernas, Vaysha’s story begs us to open our eyes and see

Ben Affleck’s Next Film May Be A Load of “American Bs”

  • HeyUGuys
Much critical acclaim has been heaped on Ben Affleck’s work as director, both for “Gone Baby Gone” and “The Town”. Warner Bros are keen to keep him “in house”, so to speak and he has been wooed with all manner of attractive projects in recent months.
