Interviews

Aaron Sorkin on “The Trial of the Chicago 7”

Nell Minow @ Medium

  • Excerpt: “In my head, the film organized itself into three stories that would be told at once: the courtroom drama, the evolution of what was supposed to be a peaceful protest into a riot, a violent clash with the police and the National Guard, and the third story, one that wasn’t in any of the books or the trial transcript, and that I would only be able to get from Tom, was the relationship between Tom and Abbie , two guys on the same side who can’t stand each other, who each think the other is doing harm to the movement, but in the end they come to respect each other..”

Jazzberry

C.H. Newell @ Father Son Holy Gore

  • Excerpt: There are very few films like Jazzberry. It has all the absurd satirical spirit of something like Brazil crossed with the artistry and surreal strangeness of Matthew Barney’s Cremaster Cycle.
