the endless interview

The Endless is Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead’s third movie. They star as Justin and Aaron Smith, two brothers returning to Camp Arcadia, the cult from which they escaped, to help Aaron get some closure. One there, they find themselves encountering a series of endless time loops.

The film has earned raves at Tribeca, Fantastic Fest and other prestigious film festivals, including one from /Film. Their previous films Spring and Resolution did well on the festival circuits as well. Moorhead and Benson spoke with /Film in Los Angeles about the themes of The Endless, including some spoilers we saved for the very bottom. The Endless opens in New York today and Los Angeles on April 13 before expanding further.

Everything Steven Soderbergh Watched and Read in 2016

Everything Steven Soderbergh Watched in 2016

Steven Soderbergh hasn’t been making as many movies or TV shows as he used to, but he’s still keeping busy watching and reading everything he can get his hands on. It’s become a tradition of the filmmaker to reveal everything that he watched and read the previous year, and his list from 2016 has been posted.

Keep in mind, Soderbergh watched and read all this stuff while working on his own comedy film Logan Lucky (which he watches more than a few times towards the end of the year). Soderbergh also got really into David Fincher this year by watching The Social Network, Panic Room, The Game, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Fight Club, and Se7en. But perhaps the most exciting thing he got to see from Fincher is episodes of the director’s Netflix series Mindhunters.

Stephen King’s Top 10 Films of 2010

I don’t always agree with best-selling author Stephen King‘s opinions, but I still love reading his thoughts about the film world. King has published his annual listing of the top 10 films of the year in the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly.

His 2008 list included Death Race, Lakeview Terrace and The Ruins. In 2009, King agreed with the mainstream critics in naming The Hurt Locker as the best film of the year, but the rest of his list was the opposite of conventional – for example, #2 is The Last House on the Left, which he claims is “on par with The Silence of the Lambs” and “easily the most brilliant remake of the decade.” Other films included District 9, The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 and 2012.

Which films did he choose for his best of 2010 list? King picked Matt ReevesLet Me In as his #1 film of 2010 declaring it “the best horror film of the decade.” Hit the jump to see the full list in brief.

Movie Playlist: Michael Cera’s Must See List

Which movies and television shows does Michael Cera recommend? The following comes from Intervals of Awesome:

My cousin, Harvey, randomly ran into Michael Cera at a London coffeeshoppe. Cera and Harvey hit it off and ended up having a 2 hour conversation over lunch. Cera wrote a list of stuff Harvey should see. I didn’t believe this story 100% until I got a hold of the list (which is v. good and everyone should see these films/shows) As Harvey’s most media-saavy relative, I’m helping him by lending/finding these movies/shows for him. This made his London trip.
