Now, more than halfway through 2012, we’ve only received our first word of a U.S. opening — and it isn’t much. I can’t even believe I’m typing this, but word has come in that Coppola will open Twixt at San Francisco’s Sundance Kabuki Cinemas Theater this coming Friday, August 10th; he’ll be doing a Q & A at the 4:45 and 7:15 screenings on that day. If you want to see it, air travel might be in your future. [STYD]

Bleak and harrowing, Starred Up is a prison picture that pushes the boundaries. The film opens with the graphic examination of Eric (Jack O’Connell) a teen transferred to an adult prison. Exploring the culture of violence, in particular the legacy of violence, David Mackenzie has crafted a powerful feature film that has resonated with in […]
