Call-In Commentary: Watch the “Starlet” trailer with writer-director Sean Baker

Article: Call-In Commentary: Watch the “Starlet” trailer with writer-director Sean Baker

In Sean Baker’s new indie “Starlet,” a young Californian (played by Dree Hemingway — Ernest’s granddaughter — in her feature film debut) crosses paths with an elderly widow (Besedka Johnson) at a yard sale, where she finds a stash of cash from the older woman’s past. The resulting relationship, as these two cross-generational characters begin…

Call-In Commentary: Watch the “Iron Sky” trailer with director Timo Vuorensola

Article: Call-In Commentary: Watch the “Iron Sky” trailer with director Timo Vuorensola

As a huge genre nerd, I’d been tracking the progress of the German film “Iron Sky” for six or seven years, watching them take their project from concept art to fully-realized scenes and eventually to a feature-length film. It’s been a long and winding road, but now with a U.S. distributor lined up, they’re prepared…

Call-In Commentary: Watch the “Dark Horse” trailer with writer-director Todd Solondz

Article: Call-In Commentary: Watch the “Dark Horse” trailer with writer-director Todd Solondz

With films like “Welcome to the Dollhouse” and “Happiness,” writer/director Todd Solondz has developed a reputation for deeply-impactful stories with more than a touch of the macabre. His latest, “Dark Horse,” may not be as dark as some of his previous offerings, but it’s certainly no fairy tale. “Dark Horse” follows Abe (Jordan Gelber), a…

Call-In Commentary: Watch “The Samaritan” trailer with writer-director David Weaver

Article: Call-In Commentary: Watch “The Samaritan” trailer with writer-director David Weaver

When recalling inspirations for his new action thriller “The Samaritan,” director David Weaver sites such classics as “The Crying Game” and “The Grifters.” The comparisons seem apt as Samuel L. Jackson plays an recent ex-con whose past begins to catch up with him while attempting to play the straight and narrow with a new-found love.…

Call-In Commentary: Watch the “Safe” trailer with writer-director Boaz Yakin

Article: Call-In Commentary: Watch the “Safe” trailer with writer-director Boaz Yakin

Bruce Willis aside, there probably isn’t another pure “action” star these days than Jason Statham. From “Crank” to “The Transporter” and a million films in-between, the actor has become a first-class pleasure to watch as he pummels his way through triads, the mafia, foreign armies and anything else you can think of. That’s precisely the…

Call-In Commentary: Watch the “Bernie” trailer with writer-director Richard Linklater

Article: Call-In Commentary: Watch the “Bernie” trailer with writer-director Richard Linklater

Richard Linklater has gained a devoted following thanks to films like “Before Sunrise,” “Waking Life” and “A Scanner Darkly.” For his new project, “Bernie,” he reteams with his “School of Rock” star Jack Black for a dark comedy about a mortician who befriends a cranky, wealthy widow (Shirley MacLaine). When she dies (not considered a…

Call-In Commentary: Watch “The Cabin in the Woods” trailer with star Fran Kranz

Article: Call-In Commentary: Watch “The Cabin in the Woods” trailer with star Fran Kranz

One of the most fiercely original films to come along in recent memory, “The Cabin in the Woods” derives from the combined minds of Joss Whedon (“The Avengers,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”) and director Drew Goddard (“Cloverfield”). Part horror, part sci-fi and part comedy, the film straddles multiple genres, infusing each with such creativity and…

Call-In Commentary: Watch “The Moth Diaries” trailer with writer-director Mary Herron

Article: Call-In Commentary: Watch “The Moth Diaries” trailer with writer-director Mary Herron

Director Mary Herron is no stranger to psychological thrillers; one viewing of her seminal ’90s classic “American Psycho” can tell you that. So it’s no surprise that for her new film “The Moth Diaries,” she’s taking audiences inside the rigid American institution known as the boarding school. More specifically, Herron takes on the bond between…

Call-In Commentary: Watch the “Brake” trailer with star Stephen Dorff

Article: Call-In Commentary: Watch the “Brake” trailer with star Stephen Dorff

Stephen Dorff is known as being a versatile actor, but his latest film “Brake” must have pushed the limits. In the picture, Dorff plays a Secret Service agent who awakens to a captivity within a plexiglass coffin inside the trunk of a car, at the mercy of terrorists who are demanding information for a sinister…

Call-In Commentary: Watch the “Detachment” trailer with director Tony Kaye

Article: Call-In Commentary: Watch the “Detachment” trailer with director Tony Kaye

Director Tony Kaye turned heads with his violent breakthrough “American History X” (and courted controversy when he washed his hands of it in response to reported editing room meddling by Edward Norton). Now after a decade plus break from Hollywood, he’s returned with “Detachment,” a powerful look at the foot soldiers in the war of…
