It's Not Just Me Director Jonathan Messer Interview - The Last New Wave

Ah, it's been one whole year since The Last New Wave started and even though I'm a few days late, I wanted to celebrate that milestone with an interview that I absolutely loved doing. This interview is with the director of the documentary It's Not Just Me Jonathan Messer, a documentary about four transgender men in Perth and their journey transitioning from female to male. It's a fantastic documentary that is making up 50% of Jonathan's PhD. It had a couple of packed screenings at this years Revelation Film Festival, which is where I thankfully caught it. It's definitely one of the best documentaries of the year.

Even if you didn't manage to catch the film, this interview is still worth listening to. When I started The Last New Wave, I had wanted to cover Australian cinema with all its different genres. I'd hoped I'd eventually be able to interview people along the way and talk about their films, and sure enough, I've been lucky enough to do just that. Being able to sit down and talk about Jonathan's documentary with him has been one of the best experiences I've had with The Last New Wave and is definitely the reason why I love doing this podcast. If you've joined me on this journey, then thank you!

Richard Armitage interview on SLEEPWALKER

SLEEPWALKER is the latest film from director Elliott Lester. Troubled by bouts of sleepwalking and disturbing nightmares, graduate student Sarah Foster goes to her university's sleep research center for help. When she wakes up after her first night of being monitored, the world she lives in seems to have changed in subtle, Twilight-Zone-esque ways. In fact, every time she goes to sleep now, she wakes up in a slightly different version of her world. With the help of sleep researcher Dr. Scott White, she tries to work her way back to the reality she started in. But when they finally succeed, it’s revealed that Sarah’s world is not what she thought at all.

Today my guest is one of the stars SLEEPWALKER, Richard Armitage. Tonight we talk about his work on that film as well as his work as Thorin Oakenshiled in The Hobbit Films, as John Proctor in The Crucible, and his upcoming films Ocens 8 and the Julie Delpy directed film My Zoe.

Internet Trolls and Critics in the Age of Rotten Tomatoes - A Look at the Critical Response to GOTTI

Hate, intolerance, and cruelty are the most valued currencies in the digital age. Online publications deal in the same eye-catching tabloid headlines that were once exclusive to rags like WEEKLY WORLD NEWS and the NATIONAL ENQUIRER. The monetization of clicks is ruining many forms of journalism and film criticism is just one of them. When organizations can see what headlines are generating revenue its only natural that sensationalism would start to rise. There is no consorted hivemind like conspiracy to destroy certain films but rather internet activity that has boosted a certain type of writer. From the outside, online film critics share quite a bit with their Twitter troll counterparts.

The critical response to John Travolta's passion project Gotti has been less than favorable, in fact, it has been downright abysmal. A project over ten years in the making, Travolta has poured his heart and soul into this venture. And many writers seem to take pleasure in the film's failure.
