Elle Fanning

Interview: Sally Potter

We talking to British filmmaking legend Sally Potter about her latest film Ginger & Rose, and her casting process, recreating the 1960s down the street from her own home, her thoughts on deep friendships, how young people are underestimated, and the question of what accessibility and placing a bit of oneself into a story actually entails.

TIFF 2011: Twixt Review

Twixt is not a blockbuster, but it is certainly a genre piece; a dream-inspired, Dan Deacon scored, Poe-themed vampire ghost murder story genre piece. The film is a weird stand out even in the Francis Ford Coppola portfolio. It’s definitely nowhere near Apocalypse Now, it’s not even Rumble Fish, but Twixt, for all of its uneasy flaws, is incredibly fun to watch.

Super 8 Review

It’s safe to say that many filmgoers will always measure newcomer sci-fi epics by the standards of the classics that came before them. Close Encounters of the Third Kind, E.T. and the now thirty-to-forty year old peers that reserve warm fuzzy spots in hearts around the globe. So it was both interesting and completely logical that Steven Spielberg, creator of these titan classics, would use the talents of J. J. Abrams, undeniably a contemporary lord of genre, to, in essence, create a new film that makes tribute to his own triumphs.
