4 days ago
Episode 31 of One Week Only! Our key film this week is "Closet Monster," a coming-of-age drama about a creative teenager who wants to study movie makeup in New York, and escape his small town and his homophobic father. Directed by Stephen Dunn, this imaginative film takes a familiar story and imbues it with fantastical art design, sharp wit & heartfelt emotion. It is now playing in New York, and will be coming to LA, and is released by Strand Releasing.
This week's interview is with director Debra Eisenstadt, about her third feature film "Before the Sun Explodes," a comedy/thriller about an over-the-hill comedian who spends one crazy night in West Hollywood with a younger female comedian, with unexpected consequences. Eisenstadt talks about her experiences making micro-budget films, using her acting experience as a director, and the importance of the Slamdance filmmaking community. "Before the Sun Explodes" premiered at the SXSW Film Festival, and is part of September's Slamdance Cinema Club in Los Angeles & Chicago.
Other films this week include "Goat," a harrowing look at college Frat hazing, starring Nick Jonas & directed by Andrew Neel; documentary "The Lovers & The Despot" about how Kim Jong-il kidnapped his favorite filmmakers to make films in North Korea, directed by Ross Adam & Robert Cannan; heartbreaking drama "Chronic" starring Tim Roth as a nurse for terminally ill patients, directed by Michel Franco; and "Cameraperson," a documentary memoir by veteran cinematographer Kristen Johnson.
