edventure wrote:Super Dark Times is a film that I had the pleasure of working on as film editor; it’s getting a limited theatrical release today (Chicago people can see it at Facets) followed by VOD in a week. It’s being marketed as horror, although I think psychological thriller might be a more apt category. Two high school friends in the 90s get into some serious fucking trouble:

I could fill pages with how much working on this film has meant to me — long story short, I consider it a high point in my career and am lucky to have been a part of it. I’m posting it here on the PRF because aside from the (admittedly biased) opinion that the movie kicks ass:

- A few music cues that I suggested actually made it into the finished film, from bands I wouldn’t have known about were it not for this forum (Bitch Magnet, Comsat Angels)

- It was never intended, but it could be read as a thematic adaptation of the Shellac tune “Riding Bikes”

Theater/VOD info: superdarktimes.com


I saw this last night and I thought it was great. Really really good. Great restraint in the plotting and the tone. Brilliantly cast, too - down to every single character. OK, so its subject matter was right up my street, but I watch loads of screen drama, I write for TV and film and teach screenwriting, which kinda does progressive damage to the simple "enjoying a film" receptors, and it's not very often that something grabs me like this and works so well. It had that confidence across all the disciplines, that it knew exactly what it was and how it should look, sound, run etc, and that is so rare.

Top work, edventure, you and everyone else involved.

Everyone else, watch this. It rules. Really. It's on Netflix.

Fuckin' A, thank you Dudley and all the people sounding off on the film! It makes me glad to hear that it's connecting with folks.

Dogman, by Matteo Garrone.
Based on a true story, depicts the squalid life of a dog-sitter who exacts revenge on his bully, a retired boxer with a coke problem. Awesome photography and direction, and an unforgettable lead charachter.
