mary-the-mature-voice-of-cannabis-culture-1

We’ve seen the fight for marijuana legality battled for decades. With the growing global acceptance (where legalization and new laws are changing for the betterment of the plant), we lack a mature and literary voice into cannabis culture. A voice which focuses on educating and enlightening users and non-users alike on the benefits of marijuana.

Limité Must-See: October Gale

by April Franz

If you are feeling overwhelmed by the heavily produced blockbusters coming out this winter, check out October Gale. This quiet, powerful thriller centers on a friendship between an unlikely pair. Recently widowed doctor Helen (Patricia Clarkson, The Maze Runner, 2014) retreats to her late husband’s island cottage to pack up his things, but a storm and unfortunate circumstances bring an injured man (Scott Speedman, The Vow, 2012) to her door. As they find themselves trapped on the island, awaiting the man’s attacker to return for him, they bond over grief, love, and regret. Clarkson’s grace shines through this pared-down role, and Speedman delivers an intense and precise performance. The shots of the island and surrounding environs—as well as the principal actors—are gorgeous. The story’s themes of loss and recovery leave a lasting impression. The audience roots for the pair not only to beat the villain, but to conquer its personal demons, as well. Also starring Tim Roth (Arbitrage, 2012) and written and directed by Ruba Nadda (Inescapable, 2012), the IFC Films release opens this Friday.

Neighbors. In many cases, particularly in big cities, they’re a peripheral part of one’s life; you pass in the hallway, exchange small talk, and maybe twice a year offer the appropriate holiday greeting. But in the case of Lyric R. Cabral, co-director of 2015 Sundance selection, (T)Error, her neighbor turned out to be a prolific informant for the FBI’s counterterrorism unit. In the wake of the September 11 attacks, the FBI’s national security efforts underwent a major shift to focus more on making proactive efforts against terrorist activity in America. Along with co-director David Felix Sutcliffe, Cabral provides a glimpse of the world of confidential informants used by the FBI in such efforts. Her window into this world? Her Harlem neighbor, Shariff, a one-time Black Panther-turned-FBI informant.

Blake Little Shoots Honey Covered Humans for ‘Preservation’

blake-little-honey-covered-humans-preservation-1

American artist Blake Little has experimented with the human body and mediums that can be used in tandem with skin. This curiosity has lead him to ‘Preservation‘, his recently-completely project and monograph, which adds a ‘sweet’ sculptural quality to his portfolio.

Little has covered portrait subjects in tubs of sticky-sweet honey while being photographed in the studio. Models representing a diverse range of ages, ethnicities and body types have been completely canvassed in cascading sheets of golden goo, resulting in their almost amber-preserved appearance.

Tom Ford Is Working on a Second Film

tom-ford-new-movie

Fans of a his debut 2009 feature film A Single Man will be pleased to hear that fashion designer and director Tom Ford is working on a follow-up. Speaking to WWD, Ford said that he’s currently in the early stages of casting a untitled thriller which he personally adapted from a novel and finished writing back in September 2014.

“A book is a book; a film is a film,” said Ford. “They are totally different things. Sometimes things are subtle in a book because there’s an inner monologue with the character, and turning it into a film, you don’t have that inner monologue – unless you do, which I don’t love… You have to have something personal; you have to take what speaks to you about a book and amplify that. It’s impressionism, in a way.”

Unlike most directors, Ford has to juggle his life as a fashion designer with his life as a director, which means he has to be really precise with filming dates to make sure it doesn’t clash with any of his fashion shows or production seasons. Having said that, he did manage to film all of A Single Man in just 21 days, so we may be seeing this follow up film sooner than we think.
