IFC News: Woody Allen.

Posted by on

"Over the years, that which you do which is good will last and people enjoy it."
This week on IFC News:

Aaron Hillis
talks with Woody Allen:

Do you ever read reviews of your films, or rather, do critics mean anything to you today?

They don’t, but not out of any contempt. They don’t because they never
have. I’ve never had any interest in what they had to say because
there’s nothing I can do about it. By the time critics get a hold of
your film, it’s finished, it’s out, and there’s nothing you can do. You
can’t change your style. There’s no help in reading them. They either
tell you you’re brilliant and a genius, and you know that’s not true,
or they think you’ve screwed up somehow. Maybe you have, maybe you
haven’t, maybe it’s their personal taste, maybe not everybody will feel
that way, or maybe everybody will. The best thing to do is make your
films, keep your eyes closed, put your nose to the grindstone and just
work. Over the years, that which you do which is good will last and
people enjoy it, and stuff that’s junk drifts away.

On the podcast, we report from the festival midpoint and are joined by Filmspotting’s Adam Kempenaar.

Michael Atkinson does the "Saved from the Flames" collection and "The Kingdom – Series Two." On the former: "Here in a case is the melancholy luster of cinema — the entering into a
past at once captured as if in amber, and simultaneously forever lost
to time."

Matt Singer reviews "The Air I Breathe": "Eventually, there will so many of these movies that some young director
will come full circle and rebel against the indie establishment by
creating a work about how one person’s horrible existence has
absolutely no bearing whatsoever on the horrible existence of the
person they meet at a bus stop."

And Christopher Bonet has what’s new in theaters.

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
