Tell me, in Killer Joe, is his actions and even the way he talks downright to the T of the character he plays?

He's pretty great in Bernie as well.
We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.
This is a bit surprising (but awesome): the film shot secretly at Disneyland, Escape from Tomorrow, is going to be released in theaters & VOD: http://cobess.com/shot-secretly-at-d...theaters-0079/
Ron Fricke's Samsara is up on Netflix Instant. Highly, highly recommended if you haven't seen it.
Really excited to see this movie in the next couple of months. Directed by one of my favorites, Terry Gilliam.
"When I made Brazil in 1984, I was trying to paint a picture of the world I thought we were living in then. The Zero Theorem is a glimpse of the world I think we are living in now. Pat Rushinís script intrigued me with the many existential ideas he had incorporated into his funny, philosophic, and touching tale.
For example: What gives meaning to our lives, brings us happiness? Can we ever be alone in our increasingly connected and constricted world? Is that world under control or simply chaotic? Weíve tried to make a film that is honest, funny, beautiful, and surprising; a simple film about a complex modern man waiting for a call to give meaning to his life; about inescapable relationships and the longing for love, full of quirky characters and sparkling performances; raising questions without offering obvious answers.
Hopefully, itís unlike any film you have seen recently; no zombies, no caped crusaders or alien spacecraft. Actually, I might have lied about that last item. Having not worked with a budget this small for several decades, I was forced to work fast and instinctively, pressured only by time and money. We relied on the freedom to spin on a dime, to make outrageous creative leaps. The results surprised even me. Iím proud to have been part of The Zero Theorem."
So, it looks like the American version of The Grandmaster was actually cut by 22 minutes as opposed to the 7 minutes I thought it was. There is a good write up on the differences here: http://twitchfilm.com/2013/08/openin...-american.html Glad I got the Hong Kong blu ray disc first.
I still encourage everyone to go out and see this on the big screen. We also have You're Next and The World's End opening this weekend. That makes for a pretty awesome weekend at the cinema. I'll catch World's End for sure as it's the only one of the three I haven't seen yet, but I do plan to catch the other two at some point within the next week or two as well.

You can also get it from dddhouse http://www.dddhouse.com/v3/product_d...roductID=13563 but they charge for shipping and I'm not sure if all the dvds they sell are 100% legit. I've only purchased from them once. Shipping took a while, but the blu ray I got was fine. They have some pretty great deals I've always meant to take advantage of, but I've been cutting back.
Most of you should make the effort to see Jem Cohen's Museum Hours. It's very slow (some might say meandering) and subtle (some might say boring), but it's a genuinely beautiful film, emotionally and intellectually - a near-perfect study of solitude that combines Cohen's unintrusive, observational technique with a much richer characterization than, say, Chain. Given all the minimalist arthouse obscurities that have been one-and-done in LA or skipped it altogether, I'm not sure how this little movie made enough money to have a two-week (and counting) run at multiple LA Laemmles - and also to have this many engagements across the US - but consider it a turn in your favor and give it your time/attention/money. The likes of The World's End (which is on my list) and the heavily (or Harvily) compromised cut of The Grandmasters (which I still enjoyed,though I must track down the Hong-Kong Blu) will still be there for you next week.
Really early probable AFI Fest news. Inside Llewyn Davis to close the festival: http://cobess.com/the-coen-brothers-...afi-fest-0099/
I'm not sure how i feel about that casting choice. pretty sure i think it sucks. yeah. it definitely sucks.
Its really just a prequel for the Justice League movie. Im not even sure how batman could fight superman when supes could just throw bats into the sun.
