Last weekend, I attended the second annual Picture Farm Film Festival. It was held at the Picture Farm gallery. Just like last year, it offered a mixture of short films of all stripes and the occasional feature. And just like last year, it was a great event. Here’s a recap of the first day. Continue reading

Nitehawk Cinema’s October 2014 slate is unsurprisingly full of the spooky and scary. But that’s not all they’ve got going on this month. Here’s a look at what will be playing in October. Continue reading
I’m a big fan of Nitehawk Cinema. It’s one of my favorite places to go. You can see great films, eat great food, and enjoy great beverages – at the same damn time. Since I often share information about their events, I thought it would be fun to start doing a monthly preview. Here’s a look at what will be playing in September. Continue reading
Elizabeth Taylor meets Andy Warhol in Rome. What could go wrong?
Apparently, a lot. Continue reading
I had the chance to see the film Boyhood – out today in select cities and releasing wide next week – Tuesday at a private screening at Nitehawk. Director Richard Linklater and actor Ellar Coltrane were present for a Q&A afterwards. It was an incredible experience. Continue reading
It’s been a little while since I’ve had a chance to post, but I’m coming back to you with some music & film events taking place over the next few days. And as a bonus, I have a live performance video shot on location in North Brooklyn.
And they are worth seeing. Like this year’s 17th Brooklyn Film Festival. It’s a keeper. Nothing can compare to watching a movie in an intimate theater (like IndieScreen on Kent) with a bunch of people so open to new (or old) ideas. Continue reading
This week, we are re-appropriating Short of the Week’s entire concept to fit our own publication because said website just named a Greenpoint film as (you guessed it) Short of the Week!

The short of choice is an action-romance comedy that parodies 21st century gender roles, which is a pretty ambitious combo to pull off. So high fives for that! Short of the Week called it “a satire that’s equal parts Indiana Jones and mid-life-crisis melodrama.” We like mid-life crises and Indiana Jones very much so we obviously enjoyed this glimpse of a superhero who can’t get his laundry done.
