- It seems that this type of film technique is an example of cinéma-vérité.
Cinéma vérité is a style of documentary filmmaking, combining naturalistic techniques with stylized cinematic devices of editing and camerawork, staged set-ups, and the use of the camera to provoke subjects.[↩]
- As quoted from Woody Allen. [↩]
When you don’t have time to sit through a 2-hour movie at home, you can always check out the shorts over at Hulu. The section is called “Reel Moments”.
Award-winning short films. Hollywood’s hottest directors. Movies inspired by readers. Finally all in one place. Go ahead and dig in.
Check out this one directed by Kate Hudson called, Cutlass. It stars Virginia Madsen, Chevy Chase, Kurt Russell, Dakota Fanning and Kristen Stewart.
Bruce Willis’ upcoming flick, Surrogates, (from what I can tell from the trailer) is somewhat iRobot x Ghost in the Shell(?). Anyways, look for yourselves. Check it out here.
HA! Here’s something for my Star Wars friends, and especially “Skywalker” himself, Jevon… Star Wars: Retold (by someone who hasn’t seen it).
Sweet—it’s out! I was going to check out The Day the Earth Stood Still a week or so ago and was stoked to find out that they added the trailer for X-Men Origins: Wolverine in the previews. Sadly, I didn’t have time to roll. However, it was dope to find that they finally brought it online.
Anyways, can’t wait till Spring 2009.
