Harmony Korine

Like his films, Harmony Korine himself possesses a spontaneous, incomparable personality. I sat down for a phone interview with the filmmaker last week to talk Trash Humpers, ‘mistakist’ filmmaking, Ricky Martin, Jonas guts film distribution, and the nice rack on the state of Tennessee.

Werner Herzog

Waiting for someone like Werner Herzog to come to the phone is one of the most nerve-wracking things someone like yours truly can do. Even as a fan of the man’s work, and someone who is coming into the interview having seen and absolutely loved his latest film Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, I’m a wreck. Thankfully, I was able to get through it long enough to have an engaging chat with a legend.

If there is one thing that Thomas Hayden Church is known for, it’s the playfulness of his many roles. He’s been acting for 21 years, and in those 21 years, Church has established himself as one of Hollywood’s great underused talents. But that’s not for a lack of trying on Hollywood’s part…

SXSW Film 2010

This is another one of those films with an interesting subject as well a title that isn’t so easy to pronounce. Neither of these facts keep The Taqwacores from being a coming of age tale that takes a fascinating look at a subculture that many people have never been exposed to.

I had a chance to sit with the guys from Dance With the One, which was almost as fun as seeing the film. The film is one of those perfect storms in independent filmmaking when an exciting story, skilled director, and a good cast create an entertaining experience on screen.

The Runaways: Kristen Stewart, Dakota Fanning and Floria Sigismondi

I was able to see The Runaways here at SXSW, which is kind of a cool experience. One minute you are watching some kick-ass girls rock out on the big screen, the next minute you can see some of the impact those girls had on rock n’ roll out on the streets of Austin. I loved the film, and I was pretty excited to be able to speak with the woman behind the curtain. When sitting with The Runaways director Floria Sigismondi I could tell that she was very much in control of how to tell the out of control stories of Cherie Currie and Joan Jett

Despite the rumors, the world is a pretty ok place. Amidst the talk of global warming, fuel prices and the Kardashians…there is this whole “Green Initiative.” So what does it mean for a project or institution to go green anyways? Miranda Bailey would be happy to tell you what it means, and how it just might be more than you bargain for.

When you visit a film festival, you are sure to find plenty of films that seem odd in subject matter and some that have odd names. Marwencol can own up to both of those distinctions. In the end though, the film can call itself the Best Documentary Feature of SXSW 2010, and my favorite documentary of recent memory.

I am a comic book geek. I won’t fight it. Call me a nerd, and what have you. Those of you who know and love comic books though, probably realize how big of a deal that Mark Millar is. What you may not know though, is that he is one of the nicest and most passionate people I have ever met.

When films are cast perfectly, you can tell. There is a certain energy and chemistry that makes these characters feel alive. So when casting an improvisational comedy, could you ask for two better guys than John C. Reilly and Jonah Hill?

It is not often that you have a chance to sit opposite of true beauty. Even when you have the chance, it is easy to clam up and lose your thoughts. So needless to say, I had to keep it cool while opposite Elektra Luxx director Sebastian Gutierrez. On a side note, I also interviewed Carla Gugino and Malin Akerman.

I won’t start off with a lie and say that Predators was one of my most anticipated films of the year, but I will say that after seeing the sneak peek…Predators is now. Chatting with director Nimród Antal was a great way to understand where the film came from and where it is going. I have a feeling that this one will sneak up on everyone and just blow us all away.

I had the pleasure of seeing one of the best documentaries of SXSW in Citizen Architect: Samuel Mockbee and the Spirit of the Rural Studio. The film is one that focus’ on social consciousness, creativity, education and love for your fellow man. I also took a few moments to sit down with the filmmaking team behind it.

Did You Hear About the Morgans Bear

When Sony Pictures emailed me saying that they’d love it if we debuted a clip from Did You Hear About the Morgans?, I wasn’t exactly jumping out of my chair. When they said that it involved Sarah Jessica Parker and a bear, I was intrigued. Because who wouldn’t want to see Sarah Jessica Parker fight a bear… and lose?

When you have a chance to sit with someone like Robert Rodriguez, a few things go through your mind. Like, “I can’t believe I get to meet one of my favorite directors”, or “What if I come off as a tool?”, and even “Wow, he is tall.” One of the things that is really great about Rodriguez is that he keeps everything close to home, literally.

Here’s something a little different. The folks at First Look Studios, a studio that seems to be getting edgier with their release slate every day, has provided us with an exclusive first look at their upcoming DVD release Suicide Girls: Guide to Living, which is no doubt full of fancy tips on how to be extremely productive while having lots of tattoos and being naked all the time.

Here’s a nice way to finish out our week and send you off into the weekend — with a short exclusive clip from the Sundance graduate Toe to Toe, from director Emily Abt. It’s a film about an unlikely pair of girls at an upscale prep school, both of whom show promise on the lacrosse field. Both of whom have problems off the field.
