Golden Prize (World Premiere)

Director: Noel Paul & Stefan Moore

The band That Go made a music video and here it is in all its loin-clothed glory. Champagne, creepy all-black contact lenses and extremely long man-wigs really made this a great starter for Gallery Shorts Block 3. The song isn’t too shabby, either. I recommend a listen on their myspace.

Joey and Jerome’s Artistic and Meaningful Independent Film

Slamdance Film Festival

Director: Josh Bass

This film was very artistic and meaningful, seriously. No other movie in the history of film has meant more or will have a bigger impact on future filmmakers. This movie is—blessedly—a short; blessedly because it is a parody of modern indie flicks and most of the films being “sent up” are too long and drawn out to begin with. This shorter format for the over-earnest indie film will be the future for crappy, meaningful cinema, hopefully. Fortunately, the satirical versions will always be more humorous.

Ha’agam (The Lake)

Slamdance Film Festival

Director: Boaz Lavie

Two brothers travel into the wilds of Tel Aviv to a wedding resort only to find death and betrayal by bizarre means. This movie was fabulous and utilized one of the best ringtone gags ever to emerge in cinema anywhere [Korean band Super Junior’s “Banana Time”]. Note the extreme amount of masticating throughout—a subtle pacing trick Israeli-director Boaz Lavie utilizes quite well.
