British actor Dev Patel moves into leading man territory in this true story about a man who used Google Earth to find his long-lost family after living in Australia for years with an adopted set of parents who loved him very much.

DAILY TRAILER: “Aquarius”

We talked about this film in our “Freeze Frame” segment of Subject:CINEMA this week – it’s a Brazilian film that got the shaft from the committee deciding the countries’ Academy Award entry because of the director backing the impeached president of the country. But it’s been one critical favorite this fall…and sounds intriguing. Take a look!

The Sundance titles are coming fast and furious at this time of year…Rebecca Hall is anchorwoman Christine Chubbuck, who committed suicide on-air in 1974. It’s the second of two releases about Chubbuck this year, the other being the documentary Kate Plays Christine, which came out earlier this year.

DAILY TRAILER: “Coming Through The Rye”

Alex Wolff stars in a true story about an obsessive “Catcher In The Rye” fan who ditches his boarding school and goes in search of author J.D. Salinger. The film has been getting good notices since premiering on the festival circuit,and here’s hoping this (and his turn in “Patriots Day”) will help bring Alex to the same recognition level as […]

DAILY TRAILER: “The Great Wall”

I am a HUUUUUGE fan of director Zhang Yimou. The Chinese director has been responsible for some of the most visually stunning films of the past two decades, among them “Hero”, “House Of Flying Daggers”, and “Curse Of The Golden Flower”.  So when I heard he was branching out and making his first English-language film, I was excited. And now […]

DAILY TRAILER: “Power Rangers”

Wow, ok…I don’t know how to describe this one…Lionsgate’s take on the classic (and still ongoing) Saban kids TV show is dark, threatening, visually stylish…and also somewhat ridiculous. Although this trailer, leaked from New York Comic Con by the studio before it actually premiered the PR panel on Saturday afternoon, is being derided in many circles, it DOES have potential. […]

DAILY TRAILER: “As You Are”

We’ve been waiting for this film since its’ premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival back in January.

DAILY TRAILER: “A Street Cat Named Bob”

I can’t believe this film has been flying under my radar – an upliftiing comedy-drama from the UK featuring one of my favorite underrated actors, Luke Treadaway, in a true story about a street musician whose friendship with a stray street cat helped him get his life back together after troubles with drugs and alcohol. It looks like a three-hankie […]

DAILY TRAILER: “Moonlight”

Of all the fall festival films thus far, this film has the most critical acclaim and the most buzz. A study of one young man at three different times in his life, as he deals with his tragic circumstances, his coming of age, and his burgeoning sexuality, it has been described as extremely hard hitting, very poignant, and co-stars Naomie […]

DAILY TRAILER: “The Red Turtle”

It is one of those films that you are either going to love or hate – an animated parable about a man, a desert island, and a giant turtle. A film that has little (or no) dialogue, and a co-production between two highly thought of animation companies, Wild Bunch and Studio Ghibli. It got rave reviews at Cannes, and is […]
