Sundance Panel with Christopher Nolan

The 2016 Sundance Film Festival is over, and while you’ll have to wait a little while to see some of the films that played up in the mountains, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy part of the festival right now.

Christopher Nolan and Alex Ross Perry (Listen Up Philip), representing the blockbuster and indie sides of the film industry, sit down for a 90-minute chat about celluloid and their preference for using the physical medium over the digital format. Sweetening the deal are Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow and Fruitvale Station and Dope cinematographer Rachel Morrison. Read More »

Winnie the Pooh

The real surprise here, though, is who’s behind it: Alex Ross Perry, writer and director of the caustic Sundance indie Listen Up Philip. More on the live action Winnie the Pooh after the jump.  Read More »
