Nymphomaniac Part II: Just a continuation of Part I, divided on account of length, more star names, more of the same, but the novelty wears of, content includes discourse on Christianity, and (I said so!) reference to Decameron, actors seem comfortable in scenes that are extremely obscene or full of sadism, masochism, blood splattering, lesbianism comes in too, as a token. (Both parts shown with Italian sub-titles). Rating: *** Nymphomaniac Part I: Lars von Trier's two part marathon, four c...

A Lifetime Love of Movies…by Jeff Cooke

  Jeff Cooke, Aviation Enthusiast, Dog Lover The cinema and movies has always been a source of enjoyment and employment.

Like most young fellows of my vintage, the yearning for change and “something better” saw me...

Start with the End by Sarah Elizabeth Timmins

Here, I learned a lesson that has become the touchtone of my filmmaking career: For tr...

Get one in the can by Christina Marie

  Christina Marie, Producer, Filmmaker After attending my first AFM last year, I was very inspired to shift gears in how I thought of filmmaking. I was banging my head against the wall trying to get big‐budget finance and it finally clicked: I really needed to get one in the can instead of continuing to seek funding for an "Opus" project. A like‐minded friend of mine approached me with a wild idea to shoot a 90 minute length Feature in just 3 days on a smaller budge...
