Trailer and Poster Alert: GUT Intrigues

by Charles Webb, May 21, 2011 6:14 PM

Writer/director/producer Elias' film Gut is in post-production, but he was kind enough to send along the trailer for this thriller that seems to have elements of anything between Hardcore and A Serbian Film. This indie starring Jason Vail, Nicholas Wilder, and Sarah Schoofs is about the perils of going too far down the sketchy boredom hole when curiosity and boredom catch up to you.

Here's the official synopsis:

Something is missing in Tom's life. His marriage has lost its spark, his job is suffocating him, and his childhood best friend Dan still clings to the past. Every day he goes through the motions, becoming increasingly detached from those around him. Dan has the solution... something Tom's got to see to believe... tonight. What Dan shows him leaves Tom unsettled, flooding his mind with disturbing images, and binding the two friends together with its ugly secret.

You can find out more about the movie on its official site.

first shot of Tom Hardy as Bane in Christopher Nolan's the Dark Knight Rises.

i dig the idea of making the mask more of a cross between a muzzle and the ninjas from Mortal Kombat. more practical and jarring than a Lucha-Libre mask or an S&M hood.

Cannes 2011: JODOROWSKY'S DUNE Underway at Last!

by Peter Martin, May 12, 2011 10:39 PM

It's a documentary and not the full-blown narrative feature we've craved for decades, but at last a full accounting of Alejandro Jodorowsky's unrealized version of Frank Herbert's "Dune" will see the light of day. Titled Jodorowsky's Dune, the documentary is being directed by Frank Pavich and is already well underway.

The news broke earlier today (thanks to a tweet by Travis Stevens, who's serving as one of the film's producers), at trade publication Screen Daily (subscriber only) and The Hollywood Reporter. Interviews in Europe with Jodorowsky, the great designer H.R. Giger, and "other surviving members of the original team" have been completed, according to THR, and the filmmakers are now moving to the U.S. to complete the second half of the production.

Way back in the mists of time, I attended a book signing by Frank Herbert at A Change of Hobbit, a bookstore in the Westwood neighborhood of Los Angeles. Mr. Herbert, who was kind, friendly, and down to earth, was asked about a movie version, and he said he was excited that Jodorowsky was in the midst of preparations. At the time, as a budding cinephile, I had no freakin' idea who this "Jodorowsky" was, but if Mr. Herbert gave him his stamp of approval, I figured I better find out, which led me to El Topo and The Holy Mountain and a whole other region of phenomenal cinema.

Personal stories aside, tidbits about Jodorowsky's version have leaked out over the years. For example, Hasko Baumann's breezy and informative Moebius Redux: A Life in Pictures, which I reviewed when it played at Fantastic Fest in 2007, included looks at some of the concept art created by Jean Giraud. But now, we'll get the whole story.

Pavich previously made N.Y.H.C., a raw, honest, well-made look at the underground hardcore music scene, and so I have high hopes for Jodorowsky's Dune. While we wait, check out the "Unseen Dune" section of the site Dune Behind the Scenes.

And for further commentary on the project, rejoice that our friend Grady Hendrix wrote an entire article about at his fine website, complete with commentary, cast breakdown, images (one of which we have borrowed) and insight.


Well this almost makes up for fucking Blogger running on Dunkin IE. powdered eggs and empty calories.

Not That I'm Bitter or Anything vol. 12

over at Logica Incubo Gola Cazzo i've been doing sort of a spring cleaning/full body shedding of much of the lyrics I've written since 2007. i was able to distill over 100 songs into 20. feel sort of accomplished. maybe now i can move on to new ways to say "girls make me nervous". you're not interested in that stuff anyway.

also been dieting. not sure if i look better, but i don't feel quite like i've been gang raped by C.H.U.Ds. anymore, so that's something positive... unless you like getting gang raped by C.H.U.Ds, in which case i wouldn't recommend it.

i wanna have choreographed knife/gun fights to this song. or if you prefer the Clueless-of-its-Irony video, here you are.

recent musical discoveries that i should've been listening to a long time ago;


if could write music, it would sound like a mix of the two. be grateful.

It's a Funny World We Live In vol. 10

Virginia girl found eating herself in cage in mobile home; parents Brian and Shannon Gore charged

A young girl was found caged and attempting to eat herself in a mobile home in Virginia, and cops say her parents are responsible.

The malnourished girl, believed to be either 5 or 6, was discovered in a crib that was converted into a makeshift cage after police arrived at the home in Gloucester County to investigate a burglary last week.

The girl's parents, Brian and Shannon Gore, were arrested and charged with felony child abuse. The mother was also charged with attempted capital murder.

However, the gruesome twosome now faces first-degree murder charges after the remains of what authorities believe to be another child were found buried outside their mobile home.

"I've done this for 20 years, and I've never seen anything like this in my life," Gloucester Sheriff's Maj. Darrell Warren said.

A month-old baby boy was also found in the home, but was in good condition. Both he and the older girl are now in the care of the county Department of Social Services.

Authorities arrived at her mobile home in Gloucester with a search warrant when they made the shocking discovery.

The girl's blond-hair was matted and filled with knots. She wore only a diaper and t-shirt and was eating flakes of dried skin on her body.

Brian Gore, 29, reportedly told police the girl had been kept in the cage since the summer.

"It was horrific. I don't know what else to say," Lt. Scott Little of the Sheriff's Department told Virginia's Daily Press on Friday.

"They seemed like nice people," neighbor Tim Hudnall told the newspaper. He noted he had seen the baby boy, but never saw a girl with the Gores in the six years they've been neighbors.

"He was really a nice guy," Brian Gore's ex-girlfriend, Sandy, told WTKR 3 News in Norfolk. "He went to church and everything."

Deputies discovered the child's remains while digging under and around a shed at the mobile home Friday evening. The age, gender and identity of the remains are not known, pending an examination by the state Medical Examiner's Office.

The Gores are being held in prison as authorities determine how the child died. An autopsy report by the state medical examiner is pending.

NERRRRRRRRRRD!!!!! vol. 32

THOR - 8.5/10

Marvel continues to translate their near 50 years of cannon to the big screen with Kenneth Brannagh's THOR, a more-than-acceptable addition to the other lead-ins to next summer event film AVENGERS.

Unlike last summer's IRON MAN 2, THOR doesn't feel like a place holder, nor does it lean on the existence of prior/upcoming films for its own strength. it's epic, colorful, tastefully paced, well-acted, and treats the characters (which are a touch more regal and pompous than other Avengers) with dignity and respect. Oh, there are Easter eggs (SPOILER HIDDEN); the brief but bad-ass debut of Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye and a post credit sequence involving the Cosmic Cube but they are little treats rather than 10lbs of re-fried chicken skins in a 5lb greasy bag. The focus is entirely on developing the main characters (Thor and Loki). by film's end, they are both changed, and it's refreshing to see especially a villain with this many dimensions.

Sure, Loki is the grand daddy of all pathological liars, but he's not some cackling helium voiced vulture faced caricature of an arch-enemy. True to his nature, Loki's motives are never truly revealed to those around him or the audience. Though Loki doesn't seem to enjoy doing the things he does, he does not entirely reject them, either. He's just doing what he is meant to do as the God of Mischief; create chaos. INVISIBLE SPOILER: and if the post-credit scene is any indication, Loki may have gleefully come to terms with his deviousness, making him all the more deadly.

I don't feel like re-hashing the plot, just go see it, geek out over Tandabou Asano's big budget debut, swoon over Kat Dennings' sardonicy sardinicous sardony (what it is with me and milk-white chocolate haired blank-voiced jewish girls i'll never know), flash the horns at the mother fucking DESTROYER, and enjoy.

U.S.A.! U.S.A.! vol. 57

"Tonight, I can report to the American people and to the world that the United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of al Qaeda, and a terrorist who’s responsible for the murder of thousands of innocent men, women, and children...

Today, at my direction, the United States launched a targeted operation... A small team of Americans carried out the operation with extraordinary courage and capability. No Americans were harmed. They took care to avoid civilian casualties. After a firefight, they killed Osama bin Laden and took custody of his body...

Americans understand the costs of war. Yet as a country, we will never tolerate our security being threatened, nor stand idly by when our people have been killed. We will be relentless in defense of our citizens and our friends and allies. We will be true to the values that make us who we are. And on nights like this one, we can say to those families who have lost loved ones to al Qaeda’s terror: Justice has been done."

-- President Barack Obama, May 1st, 2011

not much else to say, right now... 'cept nothing brings people together like the murder of a super-villain. so for now, we'll all forget that our economy has been massacred, that our food is slow murder, that gas pumps are now sanctioned muggings, that the population is frothing at the mouth over things that don't matter (birth certificates, alternate realities, gay weddings, migrant landscapers) while the 4% percent in this country with ALL the wealth are clutching on to it like Scrooge McDuck as they masturbate furiously to the erosion of the classes below them, that Donald Trump is considered a viable option for the President of the USA, and 2 Jersey Shore cast memebers are on the New York Times best seller list.

take us home, PIl;


oh my god....
