When zombie apocalypses are all the rage in every conceivable medium, it seems difficult to come up with a new spin on the undead, let alone a new sound. Yet that’s precisely what Howard and Jonathan Ford did back in 2010 when they switched the usual American-English terrain to the African outback. It was a haunted land to begin with where walking bodies seemed like the natural outcome for the continent where life began. Adding immeasurable atmosphere to their  DEAD was the score by Indian-born composer Imran Ahmad, an unearthly mélange of ethnic percussion, voices and the more recognizable “horror …Read On »

When MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD, created by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen, based in the Marvel comics universe, debuted on ABC last year, we followed a team of agents led by Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) on a series of adventures. Then the feature film CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER was released on April 4, 2014. The S.H.I.E.L.D. agency was attacked from within by the group Hydra, whose operatives turned out to have been inside S.H.I.E.L.D. since its inception in World War II. In the very next episode of AGENTS OF SHIELD, our heroes had to deal with the …Read On »

GOTHAM logo | ©2014 Fox

Fox’s GOTHAM, premiering Monday, September 22 at 8 PM, depicts Bruce Wayne as a teen orphan played by David Mazouz, before he dons Batman’s cowl. This might draw comparisons to SMALLVILLE, which dramatized the early life of Superman, another DC Comics hero, but GOTHAM has a much more adult feel. Detective Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) – who BATMAN fans know will one day become Gotham City’s police commissioner – is at the center of the action, surrounded by people who give indications that they will someday become iconic figures in this universe, including Catwoman, the Penguin and the Riddler. Thanks …Read On »

2014 Toronto International Film Festival Wrap Up: Part 1 – The Hot List

TIFF 2014 logo

The 2014 edition of the Toronto International Film Festival will go down in history as the year of the actor. With the absence of breakout films like last years mighty duo, GRAVITY and 12 YEARS A SLAVE, critics and audiences dug deeper and ended up focusing on the actors. And I mean the actors, much more so than the usual festival stars, the directors. Several mainstream actors in search of a makeover of sorts, including Richard Gere, Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston, Chris Evans and Bill Murray appeared in smaller, grittier, character driven fare. The results were decidedly mixed. As in …Read On »

Exclusive Interview: STARRED UP director David MacKenzie puts himself in the slammer

STARRED UP | ©2014 Tribeca Films

As one of England’s most interesting and diverse filmmakers, Scottish director David MacKenzie has dealt with a eyes-ear-touch-taste end of the world for PERFECT SENSE, turned up the erotic heat inside an ASYLYUM and crashed a rock concert for TONIGHT YOU’RE MINE. But if there’s a particular talent that McKenzie’s eclectic filmmaking vision has, then it’s in detailing a disaffected generation, from a layabout framing a man for murder in YOUNG ADAM, a teen out to avenge his mother’s suicide in MISTER FOE and a Hollywood gigolo aimlessly shooting the breeze in SPREAD. But MacKenzie’s gallery of sometimes angry young …Read On »

THE CONGRESS composer Max Richter waltzes once again – Interview

THE CONGRESS soundtrack | ©2014 Milan Records

In the world of modern classical-cum-film composers, few musicians are doing more to stretch sonic boundaries than the German-born, London-located musician named Max Richter. Making his way from stage to ballet and concert hall ensembles, Richter’s early work impressed as it often combining beautifully solemn string melodies with an alt. electronic attitude. Concept albums like “Memoryhouse” and “The Blue Notebooks” sung with Richter’s unique admiration for such composers as Philip Glass and John Adams, not to recently mention his wittily hip deconstruction of Vivaldi for “The Four Seasons.” It was this mesmerizing sound that mixed aching melodies with a hip …Read On »
