Only Lovers Left Alive

I want to rub this trailer all over me – Only Lovers Left Alive

Jim Jarmusch made a vampire movie and it looks so damn awesome. Tilda Swinton, Jeffrey Wright, Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt and Tom Hiddleston. I can’t wait to be one of the several hundred that pays to see this in theaters.

Only God Forgives

Only God Forgives

In 2011, Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive was released in theaters nearby and hit me like the ton-of-bricks, tour-de-force like it was. It’s rare that I ever attend more than one screening of a film but I made an effort to see Drive three times while I had the chance. It’s been two years now, but reading what I wrote after [...]

Interview with Noah Baumbach about Frances Ha

  If you haven’t seen Frances Ha yet and are able to do so, go see it.  I couldn’t recommend it more, especially if you’re a fan of Noah Baumbach who sat down with me at the San Francisco International Film Festival to discuss the film, co-writing and directing leading lady Greta Gerwig, why he doesn’t want [...]

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

Viva Las Vegas

Hollywood might not like to gamble with their creative decisions as much as they used to, with remakes and sequels top of the agenda these days, but film fans still love a casino movie. There is something about the environment of the Casino that makes it perfect for movies – it is a micro-climate of [...]
