BURNING ANNIE finally hits theaters in NYC! [25 Jan 2007|08:23pm]

* Burning Annie hits theaters!
 NYC engagement begins Feb 7 at the Pioneer

 *  Hello fans and supporters! After years and years of work, 18 film festival appearances, and six awards, I am psyched to announce Burning Annie will be playing at the Pioneer Theater in New York City starting on February 7...!
  • The Pioneer Theater
  • opens February 7, 2007
  • 155 East 3rd Street
  • (between Avenues A and B)
  • New York City
  • Showtimes (212) 591-0434
  • Advanced tickets: (800) 595-4849

  Please tell your friends in NYC! Each screening will be followed by a Q&A with the writer, co-director, and/or producer(s) and maybe even some cast. After-party to follow opening night and weekend shows. Group discounts available.
  We couldn't have done it without all your help!!!
  • Burning Annie
  • Directed by Van Flesher
  • Written by Zack Ordynans
  • Produced by Randy Mack

  • College student Max (Gary Lundy of Donnie Darko) lives and breathes Woody Allen's seminal film, Annie Hall. In fact, Max believes the movie's message underscores the ultimate futility of romance. But just when Max begins to suspect that the movie is ruining his love life, a girl (Sara Downing of TV's "Roswell") who seems to be the modern incarnation of Annie Hall herself turns his world topsy-turvy. Meanwhile Max's friends—including Kim Murphy ("24"), Brian Klugman (Can't Hardly Wait), Jay Paulson (Go), Todd Duffey (Office Space), and Rini Bell (Jarhead, Ghost World)—must confront their own difficulties with the opposite sex.
  • This dark romantic comedy transcends homage as an original, unflinching, scathingly funny, bittersweet satire of modern love in the media age.

See ya at the theater!

"Bacon. I smell bacon." [17 Dec 2006|03:49pm]

That's the opening line to a film I'm trying to find. It's spoken in a voice-over in the opening scene as the camera pulls away from the woman's face adorn with glasses and a wig. As the camera pans back, we see that the woman is lying on the pavement and paramedics are trying to revive her from a heroine overdose.

In the hospital, she meets this teenage boy who is sick with some chronic illness and who, to her dismay, follows her out of the hospitol. She shop lifts, he almost (accidently) gets her caught. There's a scene where she attempts to kick her addiction cold turkey by getting the kid to tie her up and instructing him to not untie her no matter what she says. Drama insues.

At the end, the kid's health starts failing and she drives him to this lake, which had some significance.

I saw this movie around 2002 on IFC. I cannot remember the title, the names of the actors, or any other information that would help me identify it, but I would much like to find it. Does this sound familiar to anyone?

lullaby and goodnight [17 Oct 2006|09:03am]

[ mood | excited ]

So has anyone else seen the Science of Sleep (La Science des reves)?

We went and saw it a few weeks ago, and I loved it.  I thought it was really clever, and some parts were so awkwardly funny!

I would suggest everyone seeing it!

I don't want to spoil anything, but any comments??

We are reading a book of Jonathan Rosenbaum's in my film criticism class and I thought I would share this passage with you, see what you think of it.

"A more significant example is how we use an extremely loaded term like "independent." An independent filmmaker traditionally meant a filmmaker who worked independently, free from the pressures of the major studios. If you believe what he media say about independent films, then the mecca independent filmmaking would be the sundance film festival, an event where independent films and filmmakers congregate annually. But the festival was started by a prominent movie star, Robert Redford, and has been dominated for years by studio producers, studio-owned distributors, and agents with strong ties to the studios. For indeprendent filmmakers to "succeed" at Sundance almost invariably means selling their films to studios-- which means in most cases losing control, including final cut. Ergo, to succeed at the mecca for independent filmmaking is to lose's one's independence"

While this pardox of the independent film is incredibly true, I dont know if I agree with Rosenbaum's supreme negativity of the whole process. I guess it depends on what your view of success is. I see this scenario similar to any garage band that has the chance to be picked up by a lable (major or not) and make an album. Is this selling out? and is it so wrong?

What do you all think?

On an unrelated note I saw Jim Jarmusch's "Stranger Than Paradise" recently. I suggest seeing it.

introduction [24 Apr 2006|11:31am]

I'm Brigitte. I'm 21 and I live in Milwaukee. I have always been a fan of indie movies after they became more mainstream, thanks to living in a small(ish) city in central wisconsin.
Anyway, I just rented Mysterious Skin after having missed it at the LGBT Film Festival here in Milwaukee. I don't even know where to begin in describing my thoughts and feelings after watching the movie.
Now that i live in Milwaukee, i can see more indie films in the theater rather than waiting forever for them to come to DVD. there are two theaters somewhat close to my apartment that show strictly indie/rare/"in select theaters" films. I'm currently looking forward to seeing Brick, Kinky Boots, and Thank You For Smoking (is that considered "indie?")

I'm hoping to learn more about indie films and get some great film recommendations.

A Scanner Darkly [16 Mar 2006|11:21am]

i am horrible at writing movie reviews, so i am not going to try.
But i will say that i got to see A Scanner Darkly yesterday here in Austin. It was a private viewing and it is not officially released until July 7th, 2006.

it is by Richard Linklater (who also did Waking Life) and is based on the writings of Philip Dick.

if you have heard about this movie, it is amazing. The rotoscope animation is fabulous and overall it is a great film and i highly suggest it.

you can find some more information on IMDB http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0405296/

or on Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Scanner_Darkly
