    Gilliam Returns to Surreal Sci-Fi in First “ZERO THEOREM” Trailer

Starring Christoph Waltz as a computer genius tasked with solving an equation that would explain the meaning of life, the neon-soaked, industrial world evokes many of Gilliam’s past triumphs while appearing to embody his trademark, biting dark humor. Waltz is also in good company, as Peter Stormare, Tilda Swinton, David Thewlis, Melanie Thierry and Ben Wishaw all will inhabit the strange world of ZERO THEOREM.

    “A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT” (Sundance Movie Review)

    In Bad City, evil is relative. The fictional Iranian town, which exists only in a dreamy, anamorphic black-and-white, houses a small population which runs the spectrum of its namesake quality. And who’s to say who is worse than anyone else? Writer/director Ana Lily Amirpour is. Is a sleazy, coked-up, aggressive pimp any more terrible than who he employs? Is the silent vampire stalking the streets any less terrible because we love her?  Well, yes, but not in light of their actions. In A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT, the embodiment of evil is lack of connection.

    When Frankenstein (almost) met Selene…

    First Look: Barbara Crampton in “SUN CHOKE”

    Taking cues from such films as REPULSION by Roman Polanski and the more recent DOGTOOTH, from Greek director Giorgos Lanthimos, SUN CHOKE  is “…a meditation on loneliness that is wrapped up inside a psychological horror film,” says writer-director Ben Cresciman. “I think the two main characters are deeply lonely people and the way that loneliness affects them is sort of what drives the plot forward.” Horror veteran Barbara Crampton (RE-ANIMATOR, YOU’RE NEXT) and Sarah Hagan (BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER) star in the new horror film, which recently wrapped shooting in Los Angeles.
