Melancholia

Waiting for the world to end in Lars von Trier’s latest

What with his extensive résumé and his multiple Cannes Film Festival awards, Danish filmmaker Lars von Trier has more than proved his skill behind the camera. But even longtime fans are forgiven for being hesitant when entering a von Trier movie these days. The icy auteur has demonstrated an increasing taste for heaping traumatic levels of physical and psychological abuse on his leading actresses (Emily Watson in Breaking the Waves, Björk in Dancer in the Dark, Nicole Kidman in Dogville, Charlotte Gainsbourg in Antichrist). If the guy is not an unrepentant misogynist, he sure is convincing at playing one on TV.

Hide on TNT

TNT is crazy for crime. The network has adapted four best-selling crime novels into made-for-TV movies in the last month alone. The latest page-to-screen adaptation is Hide, based on Lisa Gardner’s Det. D.D. Warren novels. Hide is actually the second of the six novels, but it gives viewers as good a jumping-in point as any.

Submit to the Experiment

The Experiments in Cinema film festival (I think the number they're up to in their oddball numbering system is v7.9) will be taking place at UNM in April 2012. This Thursday, Dec. 1, however, is the final deadline for submission. If you’re interested in being a part of Basement Films’ annual celebration of “international, cinematic experimentation,” then you need to log on to the website and submit your mind-bending film or video. Organizers have decided not to charge a late submission fee for submitting work after the original Oct. 15 deadline, so it'll still cost you just $15 to enter your work (or $10 each, if you're submitting more than one film). As always, the five-day event will include film screenings, lectures, workshops, musical performances and “thoughtful dialogue.”
