IndieScreenings.net is a website that allows you to “hire” a film, show it, and keep the cash. But if you are on the other side of the business, it allows you to get the film you’ve made and let people around the world screen it.
Life on Mars (BBC 1 2006-2007) was a brilliant show whose writers understood that great stories have a beginning, middle and definitive end. It’s premise is very simple, the situations that arise therein quite complex. It weaves together a few different genres in what seems like a police procedural as interpreted through literary magical realism.
I was really excited about this movie and it lived up to my expectations and then some. I read the books a few years back and while I am a fan of Alan Moore, and it is certainly a thoughtful and complex work, the original graphic novel left me a little cold. I respect it and enjoyed it, but it was more of a detached fascination then any real affection for the characters.
