“American Possibility: The Cinema of Hal Hartley” (3’46” intro)

As the Canadian Film Institute’s Tom McSorley writes as a February-March retrospective is announced, “Hartley’s work combines the best of American-style exuberance and intelligence with broader artistic influences from Europe and Asia. His work has been favourably compared to the films of Hollywood comedic master, Preston Sturges, to the searching and formally inventive films of French New Wave legend, Jean-Luc Godard, to the kinetic, balletic solemnity of Buster Keaton movies.”

Quvenzhané Wallis In ΤΑ ΜΥΘΙΚΑ ΠΛΑΣΜΑΤΑ ΤΟΥ ΝΟΤΟΥ

Or, as Hushpuppy puts it in Greek, «Τα νερά θα ανέβουν, τα άγρια ζώα θα εγερθούν από τους τάφους, κι ό,τι βρίσκεται νότια της αποβάθρας θα βυθιστεί, σε αυτή την ιστορία της εξάχρονης Χάσπαπι, που ζει με το μπαμπά της στην άκρη του κόσμου.»

Picturing David Gordon Green’s JOE

From David Gordon Green’s “gritty” Southern drama Joe, with Nicolas Cage and Tye Sheridan (Mud, Tree of Life), selling at the Berlinale EFM. “Joe is written by Gary Hawkins based on the Larry Brown novel, and produced by Green, his longtime producer Lisa Muskat, and Worldview CEO Christopher Woodrow, alongside Derrick Tseng.

“In the dirty unruly world of smalltown Texas, ex-convict Joe Ransom (Cage) has tried to put his dark past behind him and to live a simple life. He works for a lumber company by day, drinks by night. But when 15-year-old Gary (Sheridan)—a kid trying to support his family—comes to town, desperate for work, Joe has found a way to atone for his sins—to finally be someone’s hero. As Joe tries to protect Gary, the pair will take the twisting road to redemption in the hope for a better life in this tough, hard-hitting but incredibly moving story.”

What about replacing Mr. Spacey with another actor? Mr. Plummer, perhaps.
“That would theoretically be fantastic,” Mr. Rothman said he responded. “But I have supervised 450 movies over the course of my career. And what you are saying is impossible. There is not enough time.”
~ Publicizing Sir Ridley’s Deadline Dash

“Would I like to see Wormwood in a theater on a big screen? You betcha. I’d be disingenuous to argue otherwise. But we’re all part of, like it or not, an industry, and what Netflix offers is an opportunity to do different kinds of films in different ways. Maybe part of what is being sacrificed is that they no longer go into theaters. If the choice is between not doing it at all and having it not go to theaters, it’s an easy choice to make.”
