Friends And Romans Trailer


It's not easy being typecast, especially when you only ever get the chance to be an extra. Nick DeMaio is tired of his gruff demeanour, Italian American heritage and New York accent constantly thusting him into gangster roles and dreams of expanding his work to include a broader range of characters. But, alas, it's not easy to convince casting agents he's more than just a one trick pony, and so he rounds up a bunch of actor friends who are equally determined to be more than just mobsters and sets up to organise a producation of Shakespeare's 'Julius Caesar'. Unfortunately, the stereotyped mass of aspiring stars has caught the attention of the cops, who start to get suspicious that their play is an attempt to cover up a major criminal plot after the murder of a Broadway producer. They enlist an undercover agent to audition for the play, but little does he know that he's only going to find a passion for the stage among these long-suffering gentlemen.

Don Peyote Review


Very Good

The most surprising thing about this comedy is that it's not very funny, but then it's not meant to be. This is a trippy odyssey into the mind of a drug-addled guy who thinks the world is falling apart around him. Sure, it's fitfully amusing, but it's also harrowing and utterly bonkers. And there are some moments of sublime emotion in there too.

Dan Fogler stars as Warren, a 33-year-old unemployed graphic novelist who is haunted by dreams about the world ending on 21st December 2012. But there's another date approaching much sooner that has him even more shaken: his wedding to his rather too-hot fiancee Karen (Kelly Hitchinson), who is trying to get pregnant as she plans the big day. Then in a peyote-induced stupor, Warren becomes convinced that he has been given some sort of psychic insight into the apocalypse, and asks his best pal Balance (Yang Miller) to help him make a documentary film about the strange events going on around him. And things get very strange indeed.

Written and directed by Fogler and Michael Canzoniero, the film flickers back and forth between Warren's luridly coloured drug trips and his even more jarring lucid moments. Every scene is packed with existential chatter, like a Woody Allen movie for potheads, while the tone swings wildly between dark drama, broad slapstick and even a couple of zany musical numbers. Which is appropriate for a film set in the mind of a man who isn't always sober. It's not easy to watch this slobby nice guy lose his mind, but there are observations along the way that add strong resonance.

Chasing Liberty Review


Terrible
If you really want to know what Mandy Moore did last summer, then check out her European travelogue called Chasing Liberty. But be warned, watching her travels in this film makes sitting through the reels of your grandparent's vacation seem like an easy walk in the park. Moore's third film about finding true love is worthless, and just about as believable as those vacation slides are entertaining.

Moore is Anna "Liberty" Foster, the 18-year old daughter of the overly protective President of the United States (Mark Harmon). She's in search of a life outside the White House, yet her dad refuses to let her leave home without an entourage of Secret Service agents (in today's world, I can hardly blame him). When her latest date bails on her because the agents are "way to out of control," she demands that her dad grant her some space while on their upcoming trip to Prague. He relents slightly, because unbeknownst to her, he has conveniently found a young secret service agent named Ben Calder (Matthew Goode) to befriend her and watch over her activity.
