About Cherry (2012)
The thrill of interviewing here in Sundance is that you see a film; you have an impression and while it is still fresh you meet the filmmakers without having much time for any research or reflection. And then you get to see them again as “old friends” when you meet again in Rotterdam.
As Kirsten, her producer Weijie Lai and I sat down at the Sundance Co-op on Main Street here in Park City, I really had little idea of where the interview would take us, somewhat analogously to her film in which an architect, disenchanted with life in general, being put aside as “old” in his own highly successful architectural firm and in a stale relationship with his wife,
In previous years, projects from directors like Christopher Nolan, Marc Forster, Jared Hess, Oren Peli, Benh Zeitlin, Seth Gordon, Lynn Shelton and Lena Dunham have bowed at the festival, and it’s become a fertile — if offbeat — proving ground for fresh talents. This year looks to be yet another banner one for the fest, and as such, we’ve gone on a little trip through the Slamdance slate to dig up some prime possibilities for must-see films (shorts and features!).

It’s unclear who Springfield is playing, or how substantial the singer-turned-actor’s role is. Since “Jessie’s Girl,

Indie Spotlight Review: Nobody Can Cool
by Heather Wixson
Nobody Can Cool is the rather impressive directorial debut from up-and-coming filmmaking duo Dpyx, Marcy Boyle and Rachel Holzman, who crafted a blisteringly taut and thoughtful indie crime thriller with a palpable sense of tension from start to finish. A gritty and engaging tale of deceit, violence and desperation, Nobody Can Cool is anchored by a breakout performance by Nick Principe (best known from his work in the Laid to Rest series, Madison County and
Director Dennis Iliadis (The Last House on the Left) delivers thought-provoking suspense with Plus One, a supernatural thriller that tests the limits of survival and the loyalties of friendship.
Three college friends head out for the biggest party of the year, each looking for something different: sex, love, a simple human connection. The possibilities are endless at the mansion where the music throbs, liquor flows, and hired strippers dance on an outdoor stage. But an unexplained paranormal phenomenon disrupts the proceedings. Perfect replicas of all the partying kids suddenly appear, and what's even weirder, they are doing everything their originals did 15 minutes earlier.
As the party descends into bloody chaos, the three friends
And how could it not be? NBC's Monday crime drama is one of the season's new hits, with strong ratings (including those from post-broadcast DVR viewings, where the show has set a couple of records) and positive reviews ... and a breakout star in Boone as novice FBI profiler Elizabeth Keen, who's drawing interest and information from enigmatic ex-fugitive Raymond "Red" Reddington (James Spader).
"I was so elated," Boone tells Zap2it of learning she'd be teamed with Spader, since she was cast for "The Blacklist" first. "He often believes in me more than I believe in myself. I'm expected to carry the show with him, and at first, that was really a daunting task.
"James helped me to know that I could put that energy into the work that we do together. And in doing so, he established a

On Monday, Franco posted a photo of an S&M-themed birthday cake -- complete with a dildo, ball gag, whip and anal beads, and his name, all made out of icing -- to his WhoSay account.
Of course, we say the cake is fitting since it's reflective of Franco's recent projects. In the past year, the actor appeared in "About Cherry," a film about a girl entering the world of Bdsm porn; he produced a documentary called "Kink," which looks at the world's largest fetish website; and he directed/starred in "Interior Leather Bar," which re-imagines the lost 40 minutes from the 1980s film "Cruising," about a serial killer targeting gay men on the S&M scene.
