Sofar Sounds raise $25m, but will artists see any of that?

Sofar Sounds are bringing unique, intimate gigs to people’s living rooms and other mysterious locations – but are they for the artists, the audience, or themselves?

They launched just under 10 years ago with a passion for live music and a disdain for the rest of the live music experience – loud crowds, busy venues, sweaty smells, exorbitant drink prices. Sofar Soun...

Would you let Jeff Goldblum give you a lobotomy? The answer is probably yes – he’s so charming! But in Rick Alverson‘s surreal new film The Mountain, Goldblum’s lobotomy practices are growing increasingly controversial. The actor plays a doctor in the 1950s, working with a young photographer (Tye Sheridan) on an asylum tour. Watch The Mountain trailer below. The Mountain Trailer Well, this sure looks…odd. The Mountain comes from director Rick Alverson – the filmmaker behind The Comedy a...

‘The Place of No Words’ Trailer: Where Do We Go When We Die?

Mark Webber‘s The Place of No Words poses a large, unanswerable question: “Where do we go when we die?” The indie drama follows a three-year-old who poses such a question through a fantasy-tinged tryptic, while also dealing real-world troubles. It looks visually inventive and narratively interesting, and could definitely be a smaller film worth looking out for. Watch The Place of No Words trailer below. The Place of No Words Trailer The Place of No Words wasn’t on my radar at all, but t...

‘The Raid’ Remake is Still Happening and Joe Carnahan Shares New Plot Details

When the scrappy Indonesian martial arts thriller The Raid: Redemption became an instant action classic in 2011, it seemed inevitable that a Hollywood remake would be on its way. Lo and behold, Frank Grillo soon signed on to star in The Raid remake, and director Joe Carnahan signed on three years later. But that was in 2017, and since then, we’ve heard nary a peep about The Raid remake. But don’t worry, Carnahan is here to assure us that The Raid remake is still happening, in a new interview wh...

‘Sadie’ Director Megan Griffiths Tells Us How to Get People to Care About Your Indie Film

Getting a film made is one of the most challenging experiences anyone can go through. From writing the script, to securing the financing, to picking a crew, to casting the film, to finally shooting and editing it, filmmaking requires a huge diversity of technical and creative skills. But in today’s media-saturated world, it’s arguably just as hard to convince people to care about your small indie film. If you have a tiny movie, how do you get it out there? What strategy do you use? What element...

‘Adopt a Highway’ Review: An Honest, Open-Road Ballad About Life’s Unpredictability [SXSW]

Actor Logan Marshall-Green ’s directorial debut Adopt A Highway feels tailor-made for Austin’s South by Southwest Film Festival. It has nothing to do with horror, mind you, despite Blumhouse’s production banner. What could double as an acoustic country ballad whispers a nomad folk tale about one simple task: getting by. Indie bloodlines run through Marshall-Green’s jailhouse poetry without overly romanticized narratives, more appropriately about passing moments than revelations. It’s about mu...
