News and Theory / Re: What Films Are We Watching?
« Last post by jenkins on November 07, 2018, 10:04:56 PM »


i own 8 Paul Schrader movies, and not even the criterion one. and i own The Yakuza and Taxi Driver and Bringing out the Dead. oh and Last Temptation and Raging Bull and Rolling Thunder. and once i owned The Mosquito Coast i'm positive, i bought it from a discount Wal-Mart bin, but i don't currently own that i must admit.

that tripped me out last night, when i decided i wanted to watch Touch, which movie i couldn't remember.

y'all, Touch is cray. okay, it's the only theatrical composition done by Dave Grohl. it's the only one. that's cray. and that's the beginning. so, Schrader liked Edward Lachman before he was popular, Ed was the dp for Touch. it's an Elmore Leonard adaptation. and now let's get into the actors. Bridget Fonda doubles this with Jackie Brown for Leonard adaptations. and it's insane how good she is, it really is, if what i mean by insane is impressive, which i do. she kills it. she's better than Christopher Walken, who is only good for being himself. she's better than Skeet Ulrich, and it tripped me out that Skeet Ulrich stars in this movie. he's the one with the Touch. but here's a surprising part: Bridget ties with Tom Arnold. Tom Arnold does a good job in this movie, he really does.

so on top of all that there's the movie, which tbh i'm not in the mood to talk about. it's okay.

Jesse was my thought too. AP needs a career resurrection.

I think it was mentioned on one of the very last episodes of the S4 podcast (probably Wiedersehen) that he hadn't been involved in the writing this season, which was the first official confirmation I was aware of. Although in previous episodes he'd asked PG how they came to certain decisions, which I thought was weird at the time, but just figured he'd not been part of those specific conversations. Something else I saw somewhere said he wasn't in the writer's room last season either, but he is a credited writer on Mabel.

Either way, he's still very much involved in BCS, but not in the writing (at least for S4). I guess because he's been focusing on this.

If it's about Jesse, great. It kind of sucked how much season 5 didn't really care about him.

So this is why VG hasn't been in the writer's room for the past year+

Interesting... but he's still directed quite a few eps of season 4 no?

‘Breaking Bad’ Movie In the Works With Creator Vince Gilligan

Seems this is a new strategy for AMC. Earlier in the week they announced Andrew Lincoln's Walking Dead character hasn't actually been killed off the show - true, he'll never appear again - but that's because he's getting his own spin-off movie series.

Xixax, my inspiration and my sanity, embedded below iz the new 4210 Strand short, a SUPER 8MM NoHo SLASHER --



This one is a love letter to early LA life/The Grove. jenkz, you recognize the location of those last two scenes, I'm sure, maybe even some of the cast!

All but one of these delightful characters work at the cinema at The Grove. This is slightly a movie about support systems and separation anxiety -- born first from a short-flick concept called FINAL BOY where the Final Girl slasher would be a BURDEN on our Bi-Boy protagonist. Surviving past his friends / outliving them is a scarier thought than being next on the chopping block. It was gonna be too expensive/complicated so I reworked the feelings of social anxiety, that at large coupled with (and why is it distanced? I dunno) adoration for my friendz into something I could shoot At Home and at My Safe Place in the City.

Still not sold on how I ended it, but I know personally what I was working with time-wise, and all post-production was handled by just me so I'm trying not to be so hard on myself. I actually slept in and missed my shift on Halloween Night because I had been awake for like 49 hours editing the color and sound and fainted. Re, the shoutbox convo rn, Eward, KJ, Reelist, everyone, take care, and I send hugz. I love the health thread ~

Idk what it is about the current climate that has me here since as far as I can remember I've had a distrust for our social expectations and environments, but I really really want to etch out a space for myself in genre filmmaking and especially in the sort of joyous thrillers of De Palma/Carpenter and Bigelow's Near Dark, where the genre tropes and the entertainment factor is as important as any themes.

Commissioned by my friend Kazuki Akiba who launched DAYLIGHT INTERACTIVE as a true hub for indie filmmaker showcases, not that blogosphere/click-baity ish that most sites prefer. That's what he's aiming for at least.

"Happiness is such hard work, and it gets harder every day and it can kill you, but
No one wants to be that tacky about it
If you spin fast enough then maybe the broken pieces of your heart will stay together
But something I’ve seen lately make me doubt it"

Hope y'all dig it. Sending you postcardz from Doc'z place ~
