Frankenstein at the National Theatre

In the new adaptation of Mary Shelley's novel, the two leads switch between the roles of Frankenstein and his 'hideous progeny', telling the story from the creature's point of view

"And now, once again, I bid my hideous progeny go forth and prosper . . ." Thus Mary Shelley, prefacing the revised 1831 edition of her Frankenstein, or, The Modern Prometheus. By then she had possibly surmised that a novel she wrote when she was not quite 19 had begun to take on the poetic force of myth. Several unlicensed stage versions had thrilled the rowdier London venues through the 1820s, and Shelley understood that polite society did wonder how a mere girl had conceived of "so very hideous an idea".

Today nearly everybody knows – or thinks they know – the tale of Frankenstein: an unhinged visionary doctor who makes the crude shape of a man from grave-robbed body parts and brings it to life,

Sundance Unveils 2011 Out-of-Competition Lineup

After announcing the 58 films in four categories that would be eligible for awards at Sundance, the film fest has now announced the next 57 movies to be screened this coming January. These 57 films are of course out of competition and will be included in Premieres, Next, Spotlight, New Frontiers and Midnight categories. Most are big name projects from already established filmmakers and some have already made their way around film festival in 2010. The list includes Kevin Smith’s Red State, Tom McCarthy’s Win Win, Morgan Spurlock’s documentary The Greatest Movie Ever Sold, Submarine, I Saw the Devil (which had plenty of buzz at Tiff) and my most anticipated film of 2011, Hobo With a Shotgun.

Here is the full list:

Sundance Completes 2011 Lineup With a Mix of Vets and Newcomers
Following yesterday's announcement of the U.S. and World Cinema Dramatic and Documentary Competitions, the Sundance Film Festival has unveiled the second part of their lineup, which includes the more starry-eyed Premieres section, the best-of-fests Spotlight section, the sure-to-be-culty Park City at Midnight section, the low-budget Next section, and the more experimental New Frontier section (an extension of New Frontier Program, the collection of video art installations which has already been noted here for playing James Franco's dramatic multimedia examination of "Three's Company.")

In addition to the return of filmmakers like "Chuck & Buck"'s Miguel Arteta, "Clockwatchers" director Jill Sprecher, Kevin Smith and "The Station Agent"'s Thomas McCarthy to Park City, the festival will also welcome less frequent or first-time Sundance attendees such as Hollywood types Al Pacino ("Son of No One") and Tobey Maguire ("The Details") and mumblecore alums Joe Swanberg ("Uncle Kent," which announced it's been

Sundance Film Festival 2011 Out-Of-Competition Lineup Announced (John Akomfrah’s “The Nine Muses” Made The Cut)

Well, yesterday, we saw the full list of films in-competition; today, we get to see those titles that have been selected for Sundance 2011′s out-of-competition lineup.

And as I said with yesterday’s post, I’ll be going over the complete list, highlighting titles that need to be, taking into consideration this blog’s specific interests. The only title that immediately stands out is Brit John Akomfrah’s The Nine Muses, which MsWOO positively reviewed, after seeing it at the London Film Festival in October. Read her review Here.

But look for future posts profiling any other titles I deem worthy. I’ve applied for press credentials to attend next year’s festival. I won’t know until the 23rd of this month, whether I’ve been granted press access or not. If I am, I will attend the festival; and if I’m not, well, I probably won’t.

2011 Sundance Out of Competition Titles Boast Big Names

Well, if the Competition titles at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival don't generate any early year Oscar buzz, I think it's safe to say the Out of Competition titles will. Several films that have already been seen and positively reviewed can be found in the fest's Spotlight Line-Up along with a batch of anticipated hopefuls in the Premiere Section.

Beginning with the festival's premieres, Miguel Arteta (Youth in Revolt) is bringing Cedar Rapids to Park City where it will debut before it hits theaters only a couple weeks later on February 11. "Big Love" co-producers, Jill and Karen Sprecher are bringing an impressive cast for their crime drama The Convincer. Jacob Aaron Estes's The Details, which was shot only a few miles from my house in the Queen Anne district of Seattle, arrives with Elizabeth Banks, Laura Linney and Tobey Maguire in tow.

Filmshaft Exclusive: Stephen Volk Interview

Stephen Volk has written for television and film for over twenty years. His debut script formed the basis of Gothic, a typically outré work from Ken Russell and based upon the infamous night at the Villa Diodati where Byron, John Polidori, Mary Shelley and Percy Shelley entertained each other with ghost stories. In 1989, Volk went off to Hollywood and worked with William Friedkin on The Guardian.

However it was 1992’s television drama, Ghostwatch, which cemented his reputation and entered history as one of the legendary moments of British television. The BBC drama was presented as a live broadcast and featured several high profile t.v. presenters including Michael Parkinson and Sarah Greene. Based on the famous case of the Enfield Poltergeist, the public reaction was vitriolic (to say the least), with many believing the show to be real and that presenter Sarah Greene had really been attacked and locked in
