    Update from SIFF:
    David Gordon Green's latest effort, Prince Avalanche, may not quite be the return to form that many have hoped for but it's pretty damn close. It's sometimes sunk by some of the braindead macho sensibilities of Judd Apatow, but it has many scenes approaching the lyrical beauty that made George Washington so special. Paul Rudd does some nice work using his usual smugness to hide his concealed insecurities, while Emile Hirsch doesn't have quite as much to work with and sometimes comes across as cartoonish. Overall I'd say it's fairly close to reaching the artistic peak of the bromance.

    P.S. Green was in attendance and didn't add too much other than revealing that he wrote the film in about three days and they used melted gummy bears to approximate a run-over turtle.

    P.P.S. There is also quite a nice score by Explosions in the Sky.

    I'm a little disappointed to hear it's not great, but I guess that's to be expected. I also wouldn't have thought DGG to be great at Q&A's, but in discussing his quick script, did he acknowledge that it's a remake of a recent Icelandic film?

    Yes he did, and that film in fact played at SIFF last year.

    Had an opportunity to see the new Ben Stiller version of "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty". No comparisons to the earlier, since I've never seen it, but it's a dramedy very similar to Will Ferrell's "Stranger Than Fiction", and I liked both a great deal. It's definitely not a broad, dull comedy, it's more of an exploration of how lives work and how we all rely on each other to have a fulfilling life.

    Anyhow, I only bring it up here because the movie is music-savvy as all hell. The Pixies, Arcade Fire, Jane's Addiction, and Rogue Wave all have songs in the film (and others I've forgotten), and one of the big actors has a line about how sometimes you need to step away from the camera and just live in the moment... something guys like Eddie Vedder have been requesting a lot recently. There was even a cameo by the Icelandic volcano that erupted a few years ago and cost us some Coachella acts! (Gary Numan still hasn't come back, right?)

    Oh, and if anybody thinks I shouldn't be sharing this information, just assume I'm a compulsive liar and none of this really happened. The sky is pink, water is dry.

    gah, i need help. I have to critically analyze a cross cultural documentary and present relations of filmmaker/subject/viewer in terms of reflexivity, ethics and blah blah blah for my class as a final. I really wanted to do it on the new Pussy Riot doc but I can't find access to it anywhere. All my picks are taken. Born into Brothels, Cannibal tours, Devil's Playground, Titicut Follies, Man With the Movie Camera, Chronicle of Summer, Reassemblage, State of Mind and Promises are the movies we've seen in class as references.

    Anyone have any scholarly ideas for a good doc to examine?

    There's an interesting Thai hooker/brothel documentary - "Whore's Glory" - on Netflix. I don't know if that suffices, but it was interesting background stuff while I played Halo 4.

    Babies! I did watch that once. And it is a pretty great film for the purpose of this class. No words, even. Much easier. Didn't the Asian baby have it the best though? Hipster japanese parents with everything to give? Thanks for reminding me!

    Saw "Now You See Me" today on a whim. Went to the theater planning to see the new Star Trek, but at the last second went with the former after the guy in front of me grabbed a ticket for it. Walked in with absolutely no idea what it was about and must say that was one of the most enjoyable movie experiences I have had in a long while.

    A second viewing of Post Tenebras Lux at Cinefamily this afternoon confirmed my adoration for the film. The new projector looks absolutely stellar, and it was a real treat to see it on the big screen again.

    Highly, highly recommended.

    Post Tenebras Lux was absolutely gorgeous. Though, the EXTREMELY shallow depth of field was very distracting to me at times given the film is in 4:3 ratio. A lot of the side distortion would encroach in on the subject and make it hard to keep track of movement, even at times doubling objects. When it was working it was extremely effective in drawing you into the dream like haze of children's POV or the naturalist scenes of the county side, but it felt extremely unneeded for the full film.

    Plot wise, need some more time to think upon it. Reminds me of how I felt walking out of Tree of Life more then anything recently. But yeah, go grab a couch and enjoy it while you can.
