Hello Everyone, I just got back from The Cleveland International Film Festival, and I had a magnificent time. Over the course of 5 days, I saw 15 films and met a couple filmmakers I greatly admire. Several of you have asked how one goes about visiting the Toronto Film Fest. Though I wouldn't dissuade you from attending that fest, I'd be remiss if I didn't encourage you to attend this great festival which is just a few hours away. This year, there were 180 features and 165 shorts to chose from, and this incredible fest just keeps growing. Keep your eye on it next spring! THE PLACE BEYOND … [Read more...] about TRANCE & PLACE BEYOND THE PINES + Special Events at THE NEON!

Hello Again, I started off this morning with Derek Cianfrance's follow-up to BLUE VALENTINE. This film is called A PLACE BEYOND THE PINES, and it's well shot, edited, etc...but I really disliked it. The film is about a motorcycle trick rider with a traveling carnival who finds out that he an old fling ended up pregnant during his last stop through town. He decides to stick around when the fair leaves...and will do anything to make things "right." There are three chapters to this film - each with its own set of acts. Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper, Eva Mendes, Dean DeHaan are the leads. … [Read more...] about Toronto Film Fest – Day #3
In a surprising turn of events, the eagerly anticipated film adaptation of Brooklyn playwright Beau Willimon’s riveting political drama “Farragut North,” the winner of the 2005 Dayton Playhouse FutureFest, has a new name: “The Ides of March.” Despite the darker yet catchier revamping, Willimon’s engrossing material, which brilliantly contains shades of David Mamet, still chronicles the downfall of an arrogant press secretary of a governor-turned-Democratic presidential candidate during the frenzied Iowa Caucus. According to Deadline.com, Oscar nominee Ryan Gosling (“Half Nelson”) will star as … [Read more...] about Farragut North Becomes Ides of March
