THE MOVIE: NON COMPOS MENTIS: or Jerry Powell & the Delusions of Grandeur  is a crime comedy written and directed by Mike Cuenca (creator of the cult web series Oblivion).

Cuenca’s directing style is best described as a “great mixture of Woody Allen and Jim Jarmusch.” The film is shot in stunning black & white by Los Angeles & New York based fashion photographer Amberlie Bankoff  and chronicles a series of vignettes based around Jerry Powell, a low-level thief with memory distrust syndrome. On the edge of sanity, Powell finds himself chased by a gang of criminals, as well as his neurotic girlfriend, as he attempts to deliver a mysterious package for a known money-launderer.

More than a dozen movie premieres at the Downtown Film Festival in Los Angeles starts Wednesday ends on 9-11

John Hawkes To Be Honored With The
Indie Trailblazer of the Year Award

Los Angeles, CA – Downtown Film Festival Los Angeles announced today that “Everything Will Happen Before You Die,” a hilarious romp through the underbelly of L.A.’s boho subculture, will be presented as the 2010 festival’s Centerpiece Gala premiere film, Saturday, Sept. 11th, 7:30 pm at the new 400-seat Civic Center F. Deaton Auditorium, at corner of 1st and Main St., across from City Hall in downtown L.A.

The presentation marks the world premiere of the film directed by Dan Finkel and written by Finkel and Brian McGuire. The film stars McGuire and Bret Roberts. Bruce Dickson is the director of photography.

That evening during the Centerpiece program, actor John Hawkes will be honored with the festival’s Indie Trailblazer of the Year Award, for his body of work in 2010. In addition to appearing in “Everything Will Happen Before You Die,” Hawkes also appears in “On Holiday,” another feature screening premiering at the festival earlier that afternoon. Earlier this year, Hawkes received critical acclaim for his starring role in “Winter’s Bone,” which debuted at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival and went on to nationwide commercial release. Hawkes also has appeared in the feature releases “The Perfect Storm,” “Wristcutters: A Love Story” and “Me and You and Everyone We Know” as well as TV’s “Deadwood& quot; and “Lost.”

In “Everything Will Happen Before You Die,” Edgar (Brian McGuire) finally has got his shit together. After years of riding the party train, he has finally stepped off and is living the nerdy, hipster dream. He has his own on-line fabric company where he designs controversial T-shirts, and has a new beautiful Kenyan girlfriend whom he’s marrying at the end of the day (ok, for her immigration status). He’s right on track with his new life when an unexpected visitor from the past sets him on a new (old) course. Doran (Brett Roberts), a Russian expat who has his own private cabin on life’s party train, insists that he gives his best friend an all-day bachelor adventure. Next stop: chaos! Their friendship is tested as they must square off with a low-re nt Russian mobster and embark on a spiritual quest that brings them in contact with a motley crew of characters from L.A.’s self-professed bohemian underbelly.

“We’re delighted to be the launching platform for this film that so much captures the spirit of L.A.’s ‘alt subculture.’ Brian, Bret, Dan and the rest of their filmmaking team have proven that you don’t need a huge production budget to make a superior – and I’ll add, extremely funny – feature film,” said Greg Ptacek, DFFLA’s Festival Co-Director. “It’s also our honor to award John Hawkes with our Indie Trailblazer Award. John has had an amazing year, and his talent for completely transforming himself in roles, as evidenced in ‘Everything,’ never ceases to amaze me, and audiences everywhere.”

The 2010 Downtown Film Festival L.A. will be held Sept. 8-12 in venues throughout Los Angeles’ historic core. More than 100 feature-length and short films – narrative, documentary and experimental – will be presented along with filmmaker Q&As, panel discussions, cocktail parties, live music events and receptions.

The Americans on D-Day A Great Father’s  
Day Gift for Dad, Grandpa and Whole Family

 

Film Review
Steve Shepherd

 “The Americans on D-Day” is a compact and concise examination of the United States‘ part in the June 6, 1945, Allied invasion of Normandy. 

 Considering the enormity of the actual D-Day undertaking it might sound hopeless to present a comprehensive account in a film with a running time of 44 minutes, but producer-director Richard Lanni has come up with a well organized documentary that provides a clear outline of the events of D-Day, punctuated along the way with somewhat more detailed accounts of specific moments in the battle that turned the tide of World War II in Europe.

  The film benefits immensely from the presence of Ellwood von Seibold as host-narrator-tour guide. Donning authentic military uniform and accessories – down to the “pineapple” style hand grenade hanging from his utility webbing – von Seibold shares a wealth of knowledge on the subject, presenting it with an elegance that provides an effective counterpoint to the brutality that is, after all, at the center of the D-Day story. 

200-AmericansOnDDay DVD

  “The Americans on D-Day” strikes a tone appropriate to the nature of D-Day, offering a matter-of-fact account that acknowledges the powerful emotional component of its subject matter while stopping short of romanticizing or idealizing an event that was as bloody and brutal as it was essential to the Allies’ success inEurope. 

  The production deftly blends archival footage and stills with contemporary footage. Early on, we see black-and-white images of U.S. forces, including Supreme Allied Commander Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower – as we hear audio of Ike’s sendoff to the D-Day forces. 

  “You are about to embark upon a great crusade,” he tells them. “The hopes and prayers of liberty loving people everywhere march with you. You will bring about the destruction of the German war machine.

  “We will accept nothing less than full victory”

  The film then goes on to function as a battlefield tour, offering close-ups of German fortifications along the beaches of Normandy, arms – including the MG-42, a heavy machine gun that could fired upwards of 1,200 rounds per minute – and bridges and structures that played key roles in the Allie invasion.

  Interviews with both U.S. and German veterans of the operation provide further personal insight into the significance of D-Day and its human toll.

  Many of the images presented in “The Americans on D-Day” will be familiar to those who have seen the feature film “Saving Private Ryan,” the TV miniseries “Band of Brothers,” or any number of other filmed projects that touch on D-Day.

  The DVD package has extras including the film’s trailer, a making-of feature, a segment on weapons training, another on uniforms and a collection of stills.

Watchmen Premiere: Actress Sol Romero, John Voight attend red carpet at Chinese Theatre in Hollywood

8 03 2009
Actress Sol Romero attends the premiere of the movie Watchmen in Hollywood.  Actress Sol Romero attends the premiere of the movie Watchmen.

Actres/Model Sol Romero, just returning from her new movie with Mel Gibson in Boston, attended the Premiere of Watchmen tonight (Monday, March 2, 2009) in Hollywood. The movie has as much action and animation as The Dark Night, and believe it or not it has its own kind of Joker. Romero, who plays a hospital nurse in the new thriller “The Edge of Darkness” due out in November bumped into Actor John Voight on the celebrity carpet where both were photographed below. Romero’s latest movie is in post production and was directed by Martin Cambell “Casino Royale, Legend of Zorro, Mask of Zorro.”

MOVIE TRAILER OF WATCHMEN

The superhero movie is based on the graphic novel by Dave Gibbons, “Watchmen,” and is set in an 1980’s. The twist in this story is the superheroes are the bad guys, while President Nixon is serving his third term.  The script was written in the 80’s, but fits in today’s culture. Doctor Manhattan is a 45-foot-tall glowing blue man, who can do just about anything, and walks around in a front nude more talking to his lover Laurie Jupiter. Laurie’s 60-year-old mom is played by Carla Gugino.

Actor John Voight & Actress Sol Romero at Watchmen

John Voight and Sol Romero

 The story counts down to  nuclear war, and masked crime-    fighting superheroes and  vigilantes debate whether  mankind should be taken out or  saved.

 This dark tale makes the Dark  Knight movie appear to be mild  in comparision to the violence  and special effects. Lots of action  and lots of kissing and some sex  scenes, so definitely not a family  movie, and you might need the  larger refillable popcorn order,  because the epic never seems to  end.

Actress Sol Romero & Jesse Metcalfe

 

 

 

It is a big action movie with few major stars, but a film that will make these unknowns more known by the time the box office score this weekend. These types of movies are kind in 2009.

Romero highly recommends the  movie and except for the brutal   beating of one superwoman and   a blue man walking around with  nude the movie is  excellent. You will not fall sleep on this one.  

The movie is directed by Zack Snyder.
