The story of Chinese artist/dissident Wei Wei. The trailer gives me goosebumps. He really stands up for freedom.
“About Face” - a documentary about supermodels aging and their thoughts on beauty, aging, identity, society, etc. Sundance select. Will be on HBO.
The impeccable Frank Langella: “Frank and the Robot”
My girl crush and boy crush, crushing on each other:
“Ruby Sparks”: New film from Dayton & Farris (directors of Little Miss Sunshine):
From the creators of “Baraka” - shot in 70 mm and took 5 years, looks visually stunning. ”Samsara”
One of the world’s best directors takes on one of the world’s favorite recent novels…looks like it’s going to be beautiful. ”Life of Pi” by Ang Lee.
Keanu Reeves talks with some of today’s most influential filmmakers about digital vs. film. Looks really fascinating if you’re into moviemaking.
Documentary of rags to riches to rags. During the making of the film, the market crashed and the whole film changed. ”Queen of Versailles”
Another human-scale story (my favorite types of films) “Falling Overnight”
Paul Thomas Anderson’s newest film (supposedly loosely based on L Ron Hubbard): “The Master”
“Killer Joe” from William Friedkin - looks pretty damn good.
