The Art Gallery / Written by Sleepless
« Last post by Sleepless on June 06, 2018, 08:47:21 AM »
I was recently asked to write a 10-minute play for an annual theatre festival which my wife participates in each year. I knocked something out pretty quickly. It was the result of a combination of ideas... I wanted to do something very simple - a two-hander - so came up with the idea of someone just having a conversation with their cat. And that the cat talked back. Lots of these sort of plays are usually very pretentious, but I didn't want to do that at all. I thought it would be funny to give it a pretentious title, "Queso and Ipseical Dissonance," but really it's just stupid. though it touches on some themes of identity confusion which do interest me. This isn't the best example of my writing, but it was very rewarding to write something so quickly and then actually see some other people interpret and perform it. A very cool way to learn about my own writings' shortcomings, and I now want to edit the script and then publish it on Kindle for free. While I was decidedly very hands-off once I turned in the script, I think it is worth stating that I'd intended for it to be played very straight and dry, with the dialogue delivered like something out of Pinter, and that the humor would come more so from than that. That's not the way they went with it at all, but it was still a good experience for me.

I seen't it at Sundance. Pretty solid. Nothing mindblowing or new, but enjoyable.
This Year In Film / Skate Kitchen

In the first narrative feature from The Wolfpack director Crystal Moselle, Camille, an introverted teenage skateboarder (newcomer Rachelle Vinberg) from Long Island, meets and befriends an all-girl, New York City-based skateboarding crew called Skate Kitchen. She falls in with the in-crowd, has a falling-out with her mother, and falls for a mysterious skateboarder guy (Jaden Smith), but a relationship with him proves to be trickier to navigate than a kickflip. Writer/director Crystal Moselle immersed herself in the lives of the skater girls and worked closely with them, resulting in the film's authenticity, which combines poetic, atmospheric filmmaking and hypnotic skating sequences. SKATE KITCHEN precisely captures the experience of women in male-dominated spaces and tells a story of a girl who learns the importance of camaraderie and self-discovery.

Directed by: Crystal Moselle

it somehow doesn't have a trailer yet. i just heard about this, it's obviously going to slay. here's Jaden Smith putting his hopes and dreams into this, i like Jaden because he supported HeWillNotDivide.Us. also the director is straight up wearing a choker, and i want to take fashion tips from the female lead. this movie will work.

Girls via Kids is what i read from a positive review i forget which one, it only has positive reviews. i don't think it'll alter our concept of narratives but i think it'll feel right and true for its time (now).

I believe this had the same First AD as You Were Never Really Here, Thomas "Dutch" Deckaj (sp?) Nice dude with a great gnarly beard with whom I once shared a brief but joyous burst of Nick Cave enthusiasm which he likely wouldn't remember but clearly meant a lot to me. Color this my new most anticipated of 2018.

it's cool to me that his artistic reputation is flowering and that on top of that he has clear compatibility with the human condition, which is to say he has a kind heart. it feels good when good things happen to good people
