Inflammatory Vices: Is Joanna Newsom starring in P.T. Anderson's new film?
By Mark Lopez [ Thu Aug 8 2013 2:32 PM ]
You might know Paul Thomas Anderson's work, from Boogie Nights to Magnolia to There Will Be Blood. Let's pause right there because I have to give a small shout-out to the latter, which I consider to be Anderson's masterpiece. From the elaborate landscapes to Jonny Greenwood’s sinister score to Daniel Day-Lewis' thrilling performance as oil man Daniel Plainview, the movie marked a new turn for Anderson, showing that while his artistic eye can hone in on masterful shots with specific detail, he can also take on grand ideas with the gusto of a man who has a firm handle on his craft.

The Art of War
An interview with writer-director Kim Nguyen of the Academy Award-nominated drama War Witch

It envelops the audience in an entire world, playing out like a horror film set in paradise. Alibi was lucky enough to speak with the French-Canadian filmmaker prior to the film’s New Mexico premiere.
