PROJECTING FILM: Nobody's Watching (Ghost World meets Top Five)

For our second episode we discuss new release NOBODY'S WATCHING from Argentinian filmmaker Julia Solomonoff. This story of purposeful isolation which complicates creative pursuits not only describes our feeling of starting a new movie podcast after some minor success with a previous show but also inspires just a bit less navelgazing with a discussion on some previous like-minded films. In both Terry Zwigoff's GHOST WORLD and Chrick Rock's TOP FIVE we find lead characters passionate about art but who approach these endeavors with the precision and grace of a sledgehammer. A teenage girl who has just graduated (almost) high school struggles with moving on while still making discoveries in her small town meets a succesfull New York comedian adjusting to being engaged with and commenting on the world sober. Join us as we continue to adjust to this new podcast as we attempt to engage you with current independent cinema by referencing as many movies as we can in 40 minutes!



GUEST: Dave Hart of Pop Culture Case Study stops by to give his reaction and projected film to the trailer for NOBODY'S WATCHING. Hint: it's just an excuse to think of Michael Fassbender in the buff.

NO ALTERNATIVE review

Depression is often marked by sadness, despair, and hopelessness. The sense that things will not get better is something most of us pass through at different points in our lives. But depression is something more than that. It’s not just a temporary feeling, it’s a debilitating emotional state that you can’t simply pull yourself out of. The angry outbursts, irritability, and frustration that come along with depression can isolate individuals suffering from this condition and push them deeper into their own thoughts. Everyone needs to be heard and sometimes those who can’t express themselves in traditional forms find their voice in art.
Edvard Munch wrestled with agoraphobia and frequently had hallucinations, one of which inspired THE SCREAM, a painting so iconic that even the most casual art enthusiast is familiar with the piece.  Sylvia Plath took a more direct approach with THE BELL JAR and laid out the details of her depression with brutal honesty.

Film Threat Presents launches at Comic Con with The Theta Girl

33 years after its premiere as the rogue, iconoclastic fanzine championing indie film, Film Threat is back. First as a website, FilmThreat.com, relaunched last year, and now as a distribution label, catering to the same demographic that loved the disruptive magazine so much during its print run between 1985 and 1997.
