feedproxy.google.com – "Would you give me your body to be a vessel for my voice?," asks the nefarious casting director of the wide-eyed starlet Sarah Walker at the sort of audition parents, boyfriends, and general advocates of decency shudder at the thought. Like so many actresses hustling to get noticed, Walker reluctantly agrees that yes, she would do anything, despite her accurate suspicion that something is rotten in Denmark. 6 weeks 1 day ago via theothersenhman

SXSW 2014 Review: ‘Neighbors’ Could Be the Big Studio Comedy to Beat in 2014

feedproxy.google.com – You might expect an R-rated comedy starring Seth Rogen and Zac Efron, directed by the guy who made Forgetting Sarah Marshall and The Five-Year Engagement, to be loose and sloppy, like Rogen’s torso. But Neighbors turns out to be tight and lean and eminently watchable, like Efron’s torso. It’s boisterously funny, yet also focused and perceptive. 6 weeks 2 days ago via theothersenhman

Sundance Review: 'White Bird in a Blizzard,' Starring Shailene Woodley, an Impressive if Flawed Suburban Tragedy

feedproxy.google.com – Gregg Araki can spin pop-colored, darkly funny suburban tragedies like few other directors working today, with 2004’s “Mysterious Skin” as the formidable example. Sundance premiere “White Bird in a Blizzard,” while not matching the overall emotional swell of “Mysterious Skin,” again finds Araki in top form. Based on Laura Kasischke’s novel of the same title, “White Bird” centers on teen Kat (Shailene Woodley), living a life of angst and parental disappointment in late 1980s suburbia. 13 weeks 1 day ago via theothersenhman

Sundance Review: Rinko Kikuchi Is Stunning As Alienated 'Fargo' Superfan In the Zellner Bros.' Strangely Transfixing 'Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter'

fb.indiewire.com – Austin-based sibling directors David and Nathan Zellner have been cranking out offbeat, surrealist comedy features and shorts that have gained a minor cult following on the film festival circuit for over a decade, but the profoundly engaging "Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter" successfully broadens their sensibilities. Anchored by the remarkably sensitive presence of lead actress Rinko Kikuchi in every scene, the Zellners' elegant portrait of an alienated Japanese woman intent on discovering the fictional buried treasure from "Fargo" elevates its zany premise to poetic heights. 13 weeks 1 day ago via jackiechan

Sundance Review: Joe Swanberg's 'Happy Christmas' Starring Anna Kendrick, Melanie Lynskey & Lena Dunham

fb.indiewire.com – As perhaps the poster boy for independent cinema in the last seven to eight years, it’s crazy to realize that lo-fi filmmaker Joe Swanberg has never been in competition at the Sundance Film Festival before. While two of his films have played in Park City previously (though one was a short segment in “V/H/S”), Swanberg and his zeitgeist-defining mumblecore movement (read: 13 weeks 2 days ago via jackiechan
