Boyhood

Boyhood

Click to enlarge

Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Richard Linklater’s BOYHOOD is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason’s parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, BOYHOOD charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before. Snapshots of adolescence from road trips and family dinners to birthdays and graduations and all the moments in between become transcendent, set to a soundtrack spanning the years from Coldplay’s Yellow to Arcade Fire’s Deep Blue. BOYHOOD is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting. It’s impossible to watch Mason and his family without thinking about our own journey.

Screenwriter/filmmaker Richard Linklater has directed 17 feature films. He also serves as the artistic director for the Austin Film Society, which he founded in 1985 to showcase films from around the world that were not typically shown in Austin. The society has given out more than a million dollars in grants to Texas filmmakers. In 1999, it was honored by the Directors Guild of America in recognition of its support of the arts. Linklater is best known for his Before… trilogy with Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy.

“Perhaps never has the long arc of the journey from childhood to college been portrayed as cohesively and convincingly as Richard Linklater has done in a film that can be plain on a moment-to-moment basis but is something quite special in its entirety.” -Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter (read the review here)

Clerks – 20th Anniversary

Clerks

Click to enlarge

Part of the Miramax/Dimension Films 20th Anniversary Series

It’s been 20 years since Kevin Smith burst onto the American independent cinema scene with the surprise success of his monochrome, micro-budget masterpiece, Clerks.

When Dante Hicks (Brian O’Halloran) is reluctantly put in charge of the Quick Stop market on his day off, he tries, though half-heartedly, to perform his minimum-wage duties as efficiently as possible. This gets tough amidst the on-going fight with his girlfriend, Veronica (Marilyn Ghigliotti), and his attempt to get back together with his ex-girlfriend, Caitlyn Bree (Lisa Spoonhauer). Meanwhile, his friend and alter ego Randall (Jeff Anderson) is working behind the counter of the adjacent video store — at least when he feels like it. Randall’s unabashed disdain of his place of employment, a long with his self-admitted hatred towards its customers is a sharp contrast to Dante’s feeble attempts at the niceties of customer service. Much of the film consists of Randall and Dante’s criticism of their customers, their lives, and the world in general. Clerks, filmed in black-and-white on a budget of only $27,000, began the career of writer director Kevin Smith, who would go on to make Mallrats (1995), Chasing Amy (1997), Dogma (1999), and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001).

Good Will Hunting – A Tribute to Robin Williams

Good Will Hunting Williams and Damon

Click to enlarge

This weekend you can see the film that Robin Williams won the Oscar for Best Actor.

Good Will Hunting is a powerful and moving experience, and one that is worth a revisit to enjoy the interaction between a legendary actor and the somewhat newbie at the time, Matt Damon.

The most brilliant mind at America’s top university isn’t a student … he’s the kid who cleans the floors! Will Hunting (Damon) is a headstrong, working-class genius who’s failing the lessons of life. After one too many run-ins with the law, Will’s last chance is a psychology professor (Williams), who might be the only man who can reach him!

Directed by Gus Van Sant, US drama, 1997

The Grand Seduction

Grand Seduction

In the new comedy The Grand Seduction, a small fishing village must secure a lucrative business contract to escape a financial slump. Their odds are slim as a town doctor is needed to land the contract and they’ve been searching for years. After the mayor skips town, resident Murray French (Brendan Gleeson) takes it upon himself to find his village a doctor. When unlikely candidate and big city doctor Paul Lewis (Taylor Kitsch) lands in their lap, the townsfolk rally together to seduce him into staying beyond his one month trial. The ever-creative Murray deploys varying ranges of subterfuge. He taps Paul’s phone, fabricates a love interest, and forces the entire village to learn how to play cricket, Paul’s favorite sport. As the month grows, so too does Paul’s fondness for the village, clueless that everything he loves is an elaborate scheme. With the decision for the contract looming, Murray’s grand seduction faces collapse from both guilt and revelation, potentially crushing both the dreams of the small village and the hope of a young doctor. Directed by Don McKellar.

“So intricately plotted and unlikely that it verges on the exotic, The Grand Seduction is nevertheless a hoot.” -John Hartl, Seattle Times (read the review here)

Code Black

In his vivid and thought-provoking filmmaking debut, physician Ryan McGarry gives us unprecedented access to America’s busiest Emergency Department. Amidst real life-and-death situations, McGarry follows a dedicated team of charismatic, young doctors-in-training as they wrestle openly with both their ideals and with the realities of saving lives in a complex and overburdened system. Their training ground and source of inspiration is “C-Booth,” Los Angeles County Hospital’s legendary trauma bay, the birthplace of Emergency Medicine, where “more people have died and more people have been saved than in any other square footage in the United States.” CODE BLACK offers a tense, doctor’s-eye view, right into the heart of the healthcare debate – bringing us face to face with America’s only 24/7 safety net.

Code Black… succeeds in its most important mission: taking us to ground zero of the health care mess.” -David Lewis, San Francisco Chronicle (read the review here)

The Crow – 20th Anniversary

The Crow

Part of the Miramax/Dimension Films 20th Anniversary Series

Early in the month of May 1994, The Crow landed on movie screens across America, getting there despite the tragic death of actor Brandon Lee and the shifting of the film from Paramount Pictures to Miramax/Dimension.

The Crow a supernatural action film based on James O’Barr’s graphic novel, is about a musician who is brought back from the dead to avenge his death and the death of his fiancée. In addition to Lee, it featured actors Ernie Hudson (Ghostbusters), Michael Wincott (The Doors), Tony Todd (Candyman) and Bai Ling (Lost).

In the last two decades it has gone on to be more than a cult film, spawning more movies and comic books, and the loss of Lee during the film’s production has never been forgotten.
