Interview…’Gimme the Loot’ Writer/Director Adam Leon

Adam Leon

So, I kinda really liked the graffiti/coming-of-age street yarn, Gimme the Loot, and you can check out my review here if you don’t believe me. As it happens, I also recently had the opportunity to chat with director Adam Leon about the film- what inspired and influenced it, how the production came together, the process and preparation that went into […]

R.I.P. Roger Ebert

As a kid, I grew up in a house filled with love and reverence for film. Some of my earliest memories were watching the old Adam West Batman show. But before it came on there was always this show about these two guys sitting in a theater discussing (and arguing) about movies. Yes, it was Siskel […]

G-S-T Review…The Place Beyond the Pines

Derek Cianfrance’s The Place Beyond the Pines is a viscerally pensive film and an enthralling multi-generational drama. As equally well-crafted as his highly received Blue Valentine, Pines is a complex and engrossing film that takes a look at legacies and what we leave behind for our kids. Further it shows us that those legacies, whether we want them or not, can sometimes […]

G-S-T Review…Evil Dead

There’s a caveat that needs to be applied to any review of Fede Alvarez’s remake of Evil Dead, Sam Raimi’s unassailable 1981 horror staple: the new version isn’t as good as the old. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be, because nobody should reasonably expect genre remakes to live up to or […]

G-S-T Review…Gimme the Loot

Who knew a street-centered narrative could be so sweetly buoyant as Adam Leon’s Gimme the Loot? Modern storytelling tends to look only at one side of a life lived in the hood, wading through the mud to capture and romanticize the difficulties inherent to an existence where simply getting by day to day proves to […]

G-S-T Review…Beyond the Hills

What’s most impressive about Romanian filmmaker Cristian Mungiu’s morally complex drama, Beyond the Hills, may well be his insistence upon remaining firmly in the grey rather than taking sides. Another filmmaker might have examined this tale, based on a real-life exorcism, and turned it into an anti-religious parable in which science- and only science- possesses the […]

Sweet (Red Band) Trailer…'Only God Forgives'

Things have been really good for Ryan Gosling over the last decade. After a slew of hits including The Notebook, Drive, The Ides of March, the upcoming film The Place Beyond the Pines and even fluffier fares like Crazy Stupid Love, Gosling looks to continue his hit streak with Only God Forgives. Re-teaming with G-S-T favorite […]

Sweet Trailer…'The Purge'

Ethan Hawke has been stretching his acting muscles lately. Last year he was the unlikely star of the ultra scary horror film Sinister. Additionally in 2012 we saw him get back to his roots in the final leg of Richard Linklater’s Oscar-nominated trilogy Before Midnight. Well, following on the heels of Hawke’s against-type roles in films […]
