An Oral History of ‘Office Space’ - The Ringer
Tom Rothman said, “You’ve got to get rid of that gangster rap music.” His argument was “I want the movie to be fun.” I said, “I think that is fun.” He said, “It’s too dark and angry.” He kept insisting. I did something I should not have done, but it worked out really miraculously. I said, at the next test screening, if the focus group doesn’t like it, then I’ll take out the music. At the test screening they have 20 people afterward, they were like 18- to 25-year-olds, and this woman who is the moderator is asking a bunch of questions and then gets to the point. She makes a sneering face, she goes, “What did you guys think of the music?” Kind of like, “Ew, wasn’t that bad?” All 20 of them go, “Oh, the music was great!” She’s like, “OK, but what about the gangster rap?” She’s just trying so hard to get one negative comment and they would not give her anything. “But maybe there was too much of it? Maybe it was little too profane with the ‘Die, motherfuckers?’” This kid who was 19, he just says, “No, but that’s what’s great about it, they’re these geeky white boys in cubicles, but the music is angry because they’re angry.” I looked over at Rothman and he just gave me a shrug like, “OK, you win.”

Why Do the Oscars Keep Falling for Racial Reconciliation Fantasies?
The fantasy: being near a black person rehabilitates a racist white person.

"And Spike Lee lost the original screenplay award for “Do the Right Thing,” his masterpiece about a boiled-over pot of racial animus in Brooklyn. I was 14 then, and the political incongruity that night was impossible not to feel. “Driving Miss Daisy” and “Glory” were set in the past and the people who loved them seemed stuck there. The giddy reception for “Miss Daisy” seemed earnest. But Lee’s movie dramatized a starker truth — we couldn’t all just get along."

Fear Goes International In THE FIELD GUIDE TO EVIL Trailer
Following a year-long festival run that began at SXSW 2018, the latest Ant Timpson/Tim League horror anthology production The Field Guide to Evil is set to have a limited theatrical release in North America starting on March 29th.

The film is the partial result of a new kind of profit sharing crowd funded project through MicroVentures where fans were invited to contribute. The pitch was a film in eight parts directed by nine of the world's hottest genre filmmakers based on the folklore or mythology of their homeland. The participating directors include Calvin Lee Reeder (USA), Ashim Ahluwalia (India), Peter Strickland (Hungary), Veronika Franz & Severin Fiala (Austria), Agnieszka Smoczynska (Poland), Katrin Gebbe (Germany), Can Evrenol (Turkey), and Yannis Veslemes (Norway). 

I saw the film at its world premiere last year and had this to say,

Field Guide to Evil is a fun and fascinating exploration of the universal nature of fear, directed by eight of the world's foremost young genre talents, and while the film is predictably uneven in tone and approach (not a bad thing), there's something for everyone.

For those not near one of the participating theaters, the film will also be available on VOD on that same date. Take a look at the trailer below and get excited!

This Trailer Is SUPER DELUXE. Thiagarajan Kumararaja Returns With One Wild Ride
Eight years ago director Thiagarajan Kumararaja stunned Indian film audiences with his debut feature, Aaranya Kaandam (Anima and Persona). Instantly hailed as an indie noir classic and the kind of crime film that much of India has been desperate to replicate in the years since, Aaranya Kaandam was seen as the birth of an incredible new talent, but then Kumararaja went silent for a bit. As audiences chomped at the bit for new material, he has been biding his time in putting together just the right project as a worthy successor, and here we are in 2019 with Super Deluxe.

It is definitely worth the wait.

Putting together a dream team of South Indian talent behind the camera, Super Deluxe promises to be a wild ride for film fans across India, and with a little luck across the world. Kumararaja wrote teh original screenplay and got a little help from some Tamil film superstars like Nalan Kumarasamy (Soodhu Kaavum) and Mysskin (Pisasu). Also on the crew are composer Yuvan Shankar Raja, a trio of cinematographers including Mani Ratnam's go-to guy, P.C. Sreeram (Nayakan), Aaranya Kaandam lenser P.S. Vinod, and action specialist Nirav Shah. That's only the beginning.

The film also features an amazing ensemble cast of superstars from the Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam film industries. The biggest surprise here is probably Vijay Sethupathi (Pizza, Vikram Vedha) as a transgender woman whose story appears to carry the throughline for Super Deluxe. Also playing significant co-leading roles are Samantha Akkineni (Eega), Fahadh Faasil (Thondimuthulam Driksakshiyum), Ramya Krishnan (Baahubali), and Mysskin. 

The trailer below teases parts of everyone's story through visuals with a voiceover from Sethupathi describing various seemingly unrelated crazy scenarios. The action happening on screen over these two minutes seems pretty crazy, but having seen the film in an early version, I can assure you that it barely scratches the surface of the madness within. Audiences are in for a wild, unpredictable ride with Super Deluxe, so strap in and have a taste, but don't worry, it won't spoil your appetite.

Super Deluxe hits screens around the world on March 29th.
