"I should've been more polite and stopped being so f**king real."

It's the end of the world as we know it...and I feel fine.
I've been harsh toward This is the End from the very beginning. First batch of trailers painted the film as a "Hey look at [enter famous name here] acting wacky!" sort of comedy, but as the trailers rolled on and hinted at th... read feature

Flix for (Not So) Short: Overture


Jan 07
Overture, directed by Dan Sachar, is an Israeli short film about a man who is struggling to recover pieces of his memory. The whole film is minimalist in nature with very little spoken dialogue, a slim cast (most of the film surrounds a singular man as he finds a beautiful woman in the forest), and it has a stark, lonely feel. It's simply gorgeous.
