Trailer - Wetlands

Directed by David Wnendt. Starring Carla Juri and Christoph Letkowski. Based on the German novel by Charlotte Roche.

I read a review of this film when it was at Sundance earlier this year and it sounded insane. Never have I kept my legs crossed so hard while reading a review.
Also, the trailer is not that terrible but you probably shouldn’t watch in on full volume at your desk.

In limited release beginning September 5th

A lot of my childhood is wrapped in the films of Robin Williams. I am actually just realizing how much possibly more than actor. His work will always mean something to me.

Trailer - Interstellar

I normally don’t post multiple trailers unless the first trailer was a super teaser but this just looks too good to pass up. It’s no secret that I am a big Nolan fan but this looks great. Can’t wait.

Directed by Christopher Nolan. Starring Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway, Michael Caine, Wes Bentley, Casey Affleck, Topher Grace, and John Lithgow


Comic-Con Trailer - Mad Max: Fury Road

Directed by George Miller. Starring Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult and Zoe Kravitz. 

This was a great trailer but I am still not sure how I am feeling about this. I’m excited but also unsure.  As I have said before I am a fan of the original Mad Max trilogy (Beyond The Thunderdome is my personal favorite) This could be very solid and I am looking forward to seeing it next year.

Trailer - Whiplash

Directed by Damien Chazelle. Starring Miles Teller, JK Simmons and Paul Reiser.

This was a big hit at Sundance and now I know why. It’s a lot darker and intense than I was expecting and it was great. This looks quite good and definitely looking forward to seeing it.

Whiplash will play at the Toronto International Film Festival and will arrive in theaters October 10th.

I think Lafayette will be the only person I will miss from this show.

"Cutting through it was the lacerating catharsis of whatever guitar she was channeling the life force of at the moment. While Annie played, her body lost the robotic rigidity and, in a couple instances, she melted onto the floor in flashes of such intense focus that I found myself tearing up from the whole spectacle of it. Toward the end, she pretended to collapse on stage, wiped out by the power of her guitar solo and revived only by the presence of a new guitar. The juxtaposition was beautiful and resonant: Here was a person escaping the robotic and the electric, becoming human through the power of music. The medium was the message. It was fucking cool and also fucking brilliant."

First Official Trailer of “Finding Fela” Documentary.

To anyone familiar with Nigeria politics, Afrobeat music and revolutionary post-colonial ideologies in Africa, Fela Anikulapo Kuti needs no introduction.

Hailed as a revolutionary by some and a rebel by others, Fela Kuti was a powerful and dangerous mixture of the two. For many, his music was and still is arguably the most relevant and most poignant testimony of the corrupt state of Nigerian affairs since the oil-rich country became independent from Britain in 1960. His Afrobeat rhythms, black pride and African consciousness, mixed with his defiant attitude, as well as his charm and charisma, made Fela both a hero and a target. From the everyday person to the elite, Fela’s music struck a chord (and in some cases a nerve or two) with people all over Nigeria, and beyond.

In Finding Fela, filmmaker Alex Gibney explores Fela Kuti’s pioneering legacy painting a portrait of a man who has succeeded in achieving his self-fulfilled prophecy, highlighted through his self-appointed name ‘Anikulapo’, of living forever.

TIFF Trailer - Miss Julie

Directed by Liv Ullman. Starring Jessica Chastain, Colin Farrell, and Samantha Morton. 

Based on the play by the same name. I’m into this. Chastain is going to be everywhere this year and that’s okay. Miss Julie will be making it’s world premiere at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival
