World is Link's stage — Satellite network sets Scarlet skein [Aug. 22nd, 2006|04:01 pm]
for all lovers of film.


From Variety, Aug. 7, 2006 
Ian Mohr

Link TV -- carried by satcasters Dish Network and DirecTV -- has tapped Tribeca Film Fest exec director Peter Scarlet to host an upcoming skein focusing on world cinema, dubbed "Cinemondo."

Launching this month and running through November, Scarlet's series will feature 11 pics from around the globe, including Theo van Gogh's "May 6th," Hany Abu-Assad's "Rana's Wedding," Asghar Farhadi's "Beautiful City," Pjer Zalica's "Fuse" and Li Shaohong's "Stolen Life."

Series is the brainchild of Link TV director of music and cultural programming Steven Lawrence, in reaction to aud research suggesting Link viewers want more foreign film fare.

"Every year there are dozens of incredibly moving films made beyond our borders that get little or no exposure in the U.S.," Lawrence said. "Theatrical distributors and cable networks pick up only a tiny number of foreign films because they don't think they can make money on them, and as a result Americans are deprived."

Link's advisory board includes helmer Michael Apted and Danny Glover.

Koch Lorber Films is set to roll out two films in the series via homevid: "May 6th" and Constantine Giannaris' "Hostage."

i shot this about two years ago at the arkansas film convention. the purpose of the workshop was for every person attending to walk away with a short film. but the assignment was to get in groups and just have everyone tell stories into the camera, literally just staring into the camera and talking. so i got inspired to make an anti-film.

and so here is my short on youtube

ok, so this is _the_ best show on TV today, don't argue. if you haven't watched it you are seriously missing out. i heard it was getting canceled, but fox claims to have it return in the summer. i urge you to visit getarrested.com and sign the pledge to show them people care and watch the show. repost this as much as possible all over the place, if this show gets canceled there really is no hope for the world.

Hello Everyone, I have lots to say, as always but it all seems fairly small at this moment. I mean, it is ELECTION DAY! It's the first time I've ever participated in a presidential election and one that I will always remember. It's crucial that we all take a bit of time today to cast our votes. They really do matter. Please! Please, please, please vote! If you only vote on the presidential choices that works too. I spent all night and part of this morning educating myself on all the props and yes, I agree they are quite convoluted. Don't worry, I voted wisely on these for all of us. Ok so that's all for now. Lasting thought:


Thank you. Wendy

What's your take on Cassavettes? [Oct. 20th, 2004|10:05 am]
for all lovers of film.
[.feeling. |calmcalm]

I recently read an article in the new issue of V Magazine on John Cassavettes... now, up until this time I have heard this name time and time again but never really knew what his deal was or even who he was in this world! Soon after reading this article I looked up his movies on Netflix, only to find out that I've never even heard of any of them! (much less seen them). So, I dunno... this man seems pretty important in the world of film and I'm considering renting at least one of his films but after reading their synopses (is this a word?) I just can't seem to get excited about any of them. Anyone who's seen any of his films, please recommend one?

Texas Chainsaw Massacre [Oct. 18th, 2004|11:34 am]
for all lovers of film.
[.feeling. |confusedconfused]

Hello All,

Over the weekend I rented the newest version of Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003) and enjoyed it very much for a horror/slasher film, however, I have so many questions regarding the beginning "actual footage" and the ending "actual footage". It was always to my understanding that this movie was based on "actual events" and based on the life of Ed Gein but after seeing this supposed actual footage I began wondering if this series of events actually happened. I have tried googling "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" in a number of different ways attempting to pull up some sort of actual police report or a possible news clipping as well as asking my co-workers who lived around that era weather or not this "actual footage" was real or merely a tool used to glorify this version via our friends in Hollywood. Anyway, if anyone knows of a website where I can research actual newspaper articles regarding this subject or... if you know anything about the REAL series of events that occurred in Texas I would be ever so grateful.

Thank you,
