Film "SUPERMENSCH: The Legend of Shep Gordon" 2014-08-24 19:15:00
Description

SUPERMENSCH: The Legend of Shep Gordon

Director: Mike Meyers   USA, 2014, 86 minutes; PG

Can revered entertainment manager Shep Gordon, profiled in this so-crazy-you-wouldn’t-believe-it documentary, really have entered the business as Jimi Hendrix’s drug dealer? Stranger things have happened. As Gordon now remembers it, this was after being punched in the face by Janis Joplin. With winning candor, Gordon brushes off his best stories, like the one about putting a chicken onstage for glammy client Alice Cooper, then calling the cops on his own show, for publicity’s sake. It worked. Viciously funny and a touch sentimental, the doc bears a vervy style for first-time filmmaker, Wayne’s World star Mike Myers, who touches on his own rough patch and Gordon’s saintly intervention. It’s a portrait that’s equal parts shtick and soul. –Time Out New York  

Capitalist, protector, hedonist, pioneer, showman, shaman... Shep Gordon is the consummate Hollywood insider. His unlikely story will be told by those who know him best, including Alice Cooper, Michael Douglas, Sylvester Stallone, Anne Murray, Willie Nelson, Emeril Lagasse and more.    “How can you not love this guy, this story?”Philadelphia Inquirer

Film "LAND HO!" 2014-08-27 19:00:00
Description

LAND HO!

Directors: Martha Stephens & Aaron Katz  

Iceland/USA, 2014, 95 minutes

“A FUNNY AND MOVING FILM ABOUT AGING, BUT IT’S ALSO A WACKY JOURNEY ACROSS ICELAND WITH TWO CHARACTERS WHO ARE INSTANTLY LIKEABLE.” –HitFix

You’re never too old to soak in a hot spring, get high on good weed, or give a marvelous screen performance — or so goes the charming logic of this gently elegiac road comedy about two aging buddies vacationing in Iceland. A bawdy, bittersweet ode to friendship’s lasting joys and life’s inevitable regrets, the film showcases pitch-perfect turns from Paul Eenhoorn and Earl Lynn Nelson.

Mitch (Nelson), a gregarious, American loudmouth, tells Colin (Eenhoorn), a softer-spoken Australian, that he’s planned an impromptu trip to Iceland for the two of them.

Before long the two men land in Reykjavik, where Mitch has an effortlessly pleasurable agenda in store: stay in nice hotels, eat at the finest restaurants, and possibly smoke some premiere local pot before moving on to the scenic countryside, with its hot springs and hiking. (The superb cinematography includes staggeringly beautiful outdoor vistas.)

That a comedy starring two actors of a certain age will touch on its characters’ encroaching sense of mortality is more or less a given; it’s considerably less assured that it will cover this territory as gracefully as “Land Ho!” does. The film’s pleasures as eye-candy travelogue are delivered without apology; certainly the Icelandic Tourist Board can expect a small uptick in business. But what gives the story its moment-to-moment buoyancy is the pleasure of watching two actors working brilliantly in tandem.  –Variety

Iceland/USA, 2014, 95 minutes

“A FUNNY AND MOVING FILM ABOUT AGING, BUT IT’S ALSO A WACKY JOURNEY ACROSS ICELAND WITH TWO CHARACTERS WHO ARE INSTANTLY LIKEABLE.” –HitFix

You’re never too old to soak in a hot spring, get high on good weed, or give a marvelous screen performance — or so goes the charming logic of this gently elegiac road comedy about two aging buddies vacationing in Iceland. A bawdy, bittersweet ode to friendship’s lasting joys and life’s inevitable regrets, the film showcases pitch-perfect turns from Paul Eenhoorn and Earl Lynn Nelson.

Mitch (Nelson), a gregarious, American loudmouth, tells Colin (Eenhoorn), a softer-spoken Australian, that he’s planned an impromptu trip to Iceland for the two of them.

Before long the two men land in Reykjavik, where Mitch has an effortlessly pleasurable agenda in store: stay in nice hotels, eat at the finest restaurants, and possibly smoke some premiere local pot before moving on to the scenic countryside, with its hot springs and hiking. (The superb cinematography includes staggeringly beautiful outdoor vistas.)

That a comedy starring two actors of a certain age will touch on its characters’ encroaching sense of mortality is more or less a given; it’s considerably less assured that it will cover this territory as gracefully as “Land Ho!” does. The film’s pleasures as eye-candy travelogue are delivered without apology; certainly the Icelandic Tourist Board can expect a small uptick in business. But what gives the story its moment-to-moment buoyancy is the pleasure of watching two actors working brilliantly in tandem.  –Variety
