Deadline Looms!

This Friday, April 3, is the deadline to get your locally made films (shorts or features) in to the 2009 New Mexico Filmmakers Showcase. The four-day event (May 14 through 17) is sponsored by the State Film Office and gives up-and-coming New Mexico film and video artists a chance to show off their work. This is a first-come, first-served “open sheet”-style screening. Organizers will accept a total of 30 hours’ worth of programming, and space is filling up quick. If you’ve got something you’d like to show off and haven’t submitted it yet, get on over to Guild Cinema in Nob Hill (3405 Central NE) and drop off your DVD! For more information, log on to nmfilm.com.

Adventureland

Strap yourself in for depression

Judging from the trailer for Adventureland, casual viewers might assume they’re in for a lighthearted romp through post-collegiate hell. But save for a few full-belly laughs, the film is anything but blithe.

Che: Part One and Two

Epic biopic more bluntly informative than passionately provocative

Writer/producer/cinematographer/director Steven Soderbergh has had his name attached to enough big-ticket blockbusters (Out Of Sight, Erin Brockovich, Traffic, Ocean’s Eleven) to be mistaken for a mainstream Hollywood filmmaker. He isn’t really. Dig through his résumé in full and you’ll find plenty of proof thatdespite palling around with George Clooney and Julia Robertshis heart lies in doggedly uncommercial independent cinema. For evidence, put Kafka, King of the Hill, Underneath, Schizopolis and 2005’s self-distributed Bubble in your Netflix queuebecause you probably aren’t going to find them at your local Blockbuster.

“The Mighty Boosh” on Cartoon Network

What is a Mighty Boosh? Well, having viewed several episodes of the hot new BBC transplant, I can confidently tell you I have no idea.
