Yes our November picks are a tad late, but we’ve been busy stressing about all the Christmas shopping we still have to do – we’d like Santa to bring us a nice SCARLET X if anyone’s overcome with the spirit of giving. Anyway, here’s what we got excited about last month.
DN221: Littlerock – Mike Ott – Director Mike Ott joined us to talk about his second feature and a film I’ve been dying to watch ever since catching the trailer online.
Terri – I was really looking forward to seeing how Azazel Jacobs had progressed as a filmmaker since Momma’s Man and was more than happy to see him successfully delve into the world of the outsider in Terri.
Die Antwoord: Fok Julle Naaiers – We’re scared as hell of them, but just can’t resisted their menacing Zef infused hip hop ways.
Kerry Film Festival 2011 – We always like to bring you film festival reports from the filmmaker’s eye view and Neil’s perspective as an ex-festival director was an added bonus. Plus, he scooped a much deserved win too!
Another Earth – Mike Cahill’s low budget debut feature manages to combine thought-provoking science fiction with haunting character driven drama, resulting in one of the stand-out features of the year.
MarBelle has a strange compulsion to watch as many films as he can get his hands on and find jobs that give him a legitimate excuse to drill filmmakers about their work. Directors Notes is the latest incarnation of this disorder and so much cheaper than film school. Twitter: @MarBelle
