cloud atlas

The Wachowski siblings of The Matrix and Tom Twyker of Run Lola Run (two of the best movies ever made) came together to adapt the novel Cloud Atlas into a screenplay and then tri-direct the film. The six minute long trailer looks tremendous in scope. Even though it was rumored to cost 100 million to make, it’s basically an independent film as they had to collect funding from hundreds of different sources. (Nobody in Hollywood would back it because it was too “complex” and impossible to market.) Looks like one of the most ambitious films ever made and the subject matter is pure awesome—-karma, reincarnation, future/past/present connections, the nature of time and existence… does it get better? I think not. Pop the corn! October 26.

trailer love

Never read the Great Gatsby, but this trailer is motivating me to crack the untouched copy that’s been sitting on my shelf for ten years. (Song choice is perfection: Love Is Blindness/Jack White cover.)

the veils are thinning…

This doc is fantastic! Went to a screening of Wake Up with a group of friends at my local indie bookstore. Afterward, there was a Q&A with Jonas Elrod (the subject and director.) He was charming and hilarious and completely down to earth. The doc recently had its TV premiere on OWN and has screened at fests like SXSW. You can watch online or buy the DVD. *Recommended for skeptics and believers alike.

love

Really intrigued by this project. Indie filmmaker/photographer William Eubank built the replica of a space station in his parents front yard and filmed, Love, the story of a man alone, trapped in a space, and how he keeps himself emotionally alive. I was unfamiliar with the band Angels & Airwaves (with Blink-182’s Tom DeLonge) before this trailer. They produced and scored the film. Looks and sounds like a powerful film with a beautiful message of hope and resilience.

(‘Tis the season for more and more of these kinds of films, books, tv shows, etc. as humanity enters the do-or-die zone.)

nature and grace

Finally the trailer for Terrance Malick’s new movie, The Tree of Life. I’ve been faithfully checking the status of this film since his last one, The New World (2007), blew me away — not only did it awaken a desire within me to connect to nature on a deeper level, but also motivated me to learn more about indigenous forms of spirituality (where connecting to the Divine through nature was a way of life.) Ever since, I’ve been anticipating Malick’s next film, hoping for more transformative revelations :) The trailer certainly gives me the chills. Even the first line – “there are two ways through life, the way of nature and the way of grace” – connects to an ongoing, recent conversation with friends about the ‘universal law of grace’ and how it operates. Grace is a subject close to my heart, as is the tree of life, so I’m beyond excited to see what personal revelations Malick has to offer us about these two sacred subjects…
