Evan_Glodell

Q&A with Evan Glodell

Its been said that love is a many-splintering thing. For writer/director/actor Evan Glodell, it’s the profundity of the volatile relationship he shared with his now ex-girlfriend that inspired his feature-length directorial debut, Bellflower.

Cannes 2011: A Pictorial Round Up

Usually, as the 11 days of the Cannes Film Festival carries on, a lethal mix of fatigue, bad temper, disappointments, envy, and excruciating hangovers befall all but the most indefatigable of optimists.

Catch-Up: Timothy Saccenti

Timothy Saccenti’s all-encompassing body of work—music videos, still photography, commercials, short films and fine art projects—is often brushed with heavy strokes of a certain surreal eeriness that lurks beneath a disarmingly beautiful and polished exterior. Consider the creative polymath’s videos for Battles’ “Atlas” and Blonde Redhead’s “Not Getting There,” for instance, where the bands are [...]

Gaspard Noé

Q&A with Gaspar Noé

Gaspar Noé is something of a filmmaker’s filmmaker. For one thing, the 46-year-old provocateur never sells himself short. He’s not pinned down by box office woes and doesn’t try to woo his way into conservative film circles. Remember the brutal 9-minute rape scene in his 2002 film? Sienna Miller put it thusly: “I couldn’t watch [...]

Ryan O'nan

Q&A with Ryan O’Nan

Most actors aren’t afforded a breakout year, let alone so early on in their career. Many who have them don’t survive them.
