“The Big Spoon” is being featured at IndieWire as project of the day! We are specially excited about it because the filmmakers will be hosts at Punchland.com pretty soon!

“Tweetable Logline: An Unromantic Comedy about the Perils of Staying Together when You Should Really be Apart.

Elevator Pitch: Have you ever been in a relationship where you’re comfortable, and nothing’s WRONG, per se, but you wake up one day and think, “what the fuck am I doing with this person who I know I don’t want to be with forever?” but then drag ass getting out of it because, maybe it’s better than being alone after all? The Big Spoon is a modern (un)romantic comedy about that; think classic Woody Allen sensibilities mixed with Broad City-esque shenanigans and you’ve got our movie.”

So go to IndieWire now and learn more about this awesome project!

Say Anything… Turns 25

Continue Reading

Say Anything… is turning 25 and that also means that it’s the anniversary of Cameron Crowe debut as a film director. We’ll be talking more about Crowe throughout the week.

Say Anything… is a movie so specific to the characters and their lives that the greater whole of the picture becomes something dissimilar to those who see it, depending upon who they are and who/what they identify with.
Check our annotated rundown of the reviews after the jump.

Wallace Costa Picks: Elliot Smith – Figure 8 (Full Album)

Continue Reading

Figure 8 is the fifth studio album by Elliot Smith and you can hear the connection between his and Wallace Costa’s sound. They’re both very oneiric. This is what Elliot Smith had to say about the title of this record:

“I liked the idea of a self-contained, endless pursuit of perfection. But I have a problem with perfection. I don’t think perfection is very artful. But there’s something I liked about the image of a skater going in this endless twisted circle that doesn’t have any real endpoint. So the object is not to stop or arrive anywhere; it’s just to make this thing as beautiful as they can.”

I think this is a description of his work as whole though.
