Next up: Job Interview
The last time I was at the edge of my seat totally scared for a full 10 minutes was watching an Alfred Hitchcock movie when I was 9 years old. Over 50 years later, Frau Director Julia Walter has done it again, and keeps us guessing until the very, very end. Along the way you think you understand where this film headed, then it gets a little strange and you see this job interview is not what it seems at all. Then it gets creepy, really creepy...
There's good reason this was accepted in Cannes.
This was a roller coaster ride of emotions and circumstances for the entire 14 minutes....and we're sure writer/director Alejandro Montoya Marín could easily have turned this into an enjoyable feature, series, or those episodic things you see on Netflix.
Kristen Rakes (Seal Team Six The Raid on Osama Bin Laden, 2012; Enter the Dojo, 2013; American Horror Story, 2016...to name a few) plays a pop culture obsessed woman who at around the age of 30 realizes that this has given her false expectations about life - so cuts music and film cold turkey in order to find true love...and Kristen plays this perfectly.
This is a gem of a premise, and the writing comes full circle so that everyone in the audience goes
when the final twist is turned. We love it when that happens, you will too...
The genius behind Low/Fi is Alejandro Montoya Marín who when not running all over New Mexico making movies, is, well, working on movies.
Next up: SHADOW of the MISSING
Next up: HAMLET'S GHOST
You've all seen lots time travel movies, but not one as refreshing as this in how a time travel paradox is in play, which is revealed at a perfect pace.
Again, we only showed the trailer since we will try to get Walker to Midland, Texas as well (we actually got him to Bastrop a while back to premier Hamlet's Ghost in Texas...and am pretty sure we can get him back again...West Texans are pretty welcoming people.
Make sure you see it when it comes to a theater or on-demand or however it comes out near you...it will be very easy to see why this won Best Sci-Fi Feature at so many film festivals, and is racking up similar awards all over the globe.
A must see for science fiction fans, or even if you're not...something exciting for baby boomers, millennials and all generations in between...
No one in Midland knew the man we Skyped in helped shape so many of the movies and TV shows they all knew and loved. They soon learned that Writer / Actor / Director / Stuntman Haynes is no new-comer to the film industry...
... a few of his credits being the TV movie Samuel Adams (2014), Revenge (2013), Gunfight at La Mesa (2010), and a reoccurring character on the TV series Whodunnit (2013) and CSI: NY (2006-2012) where he is also the stunt double for Gary Sinise.
Walker also said he could come to Midland to show his Hamlet's Ghost soon if we can make the arrangements most film festivals do for film makers who have their films featured....like get him over here, share some West Texas BBQ and find a place for him & his family to crash for an evening or two...can we do that, Permian Basin?
