    TADFF 2013: The Battery

    by  • 10/20/2013 • festival, zombies • 0 Comments

    I saw The Battery last night as part of Zombie Appreciation Night at Toronto After Dark. This is dark and comedic, and one of the best zombie genre films I’ve seen in a long while. It focuses primarily on the relationship of these two men who don’t start out as friends, but teammates. They have […]

    Symbiopsychotaxiplasm: Take One & Two

    by  • 5/2/2008 • art, festival, film, movies • 0 Comments

    What is truth in film? Where does the lie start, and how can the viewer tell?

I didn’t really know anything about the film, but I was adding a series of […]

    How did I manage to avoid all the typical books forced on high school kids? I’ve never had to read any Margaret Laurence books; none of them. How did I ever graduate from high school in Canada? I’ve never been inclined to pick one up on my own, either, least of all The Stone Angel. […]

    Summer of short film

    by  • 9/16/2007 • animation, festival, film, Halifax, movies • 0 Comments

    Well, I’ve always liked short films; partly due to the fact that the bad ones are just over faster. I’d argue that the 90-120 minute range should be more of an exception, with more films aiming to be in the 45 minute range. Think of the Hollywood blockbusters that could have been better dealt with […]

    Act as a catalyst for reflection, discussion, and inspiration?

    by  • 5/20/2007 • art, festival, life, movies • 0 Comments

    This call for film festival entries is pretty wide open; documentary films that will act as catalysts for reflection, discussion, and inspiration… I think that there’s an argument for nearly any doc, short or full length. Global Visions Film Festival 2007 Call for Submissions Global Visions Film Festival in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada is requesting that […]
