Ed Burns Indie Movies on Demand Hot List : NOV 2010 - EXCLUSIVE

Ed Burns

AN ODW EXCLUSIVE

On Demand Weekly is thrilled to welcome fillmaker Ed Burns to our Advisory Board and our terrific roster of contributers. Ed recently blazed a new trail for digital distribution and marketing for the recent premiere of his film NICE GUY JOHNNY. Every month, Ed will share with our readers the list of independent films currently available On Demand he's most interested in watching and offer insight as to why each film makes his Hot List. We hope you enjoy and look forward to your feedback. - ODW

As an indie film lover, and parent, who doesn't get to to the theater like I used to, I now watch most movies at home. I wanted to reach out to other like-minded people, who are looking for good movies to watch on their On Demand services. Many of these titles I used to catch in the arthouse theater, and sadly, most of them have been slipping through the cracks.

So you can find me here once a month and I will tip you off to the films I'll be watching On Demand.

Indie Movies on Demand Hot List - November, 2010

ALL GOOD THINGS

ALL GOOD THINGS (Magnolia Pictures)
- Some terrific actors, including Ryan Gosling, Kirsten Dunst and Frank Langella, and a real life story set in New York in the 80's, makes ALL GOOD THINGS a movie I don't want to miss.

 

TINY FURNITURE

TINY FURNITURE (IFC Films)
- I am excited to check out TINY FURNITURE, written and directed by Lena Dunham, who also starred in the movie, and has generated terrific press for making this on a tiny budget with friends and family, including her mother and sister. Sounds like an authentic New York story, which I am a big fan of.

 

Exit

EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP (FilmBuff)
- EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP is a compelling documentary that will have your head spinning and questioning the lines between art and manipulation. The movie is a truly unique glimpse into some of the most compelling and talented street artists around (most notably the enigmatic Banksy).

Indie Movies on Demand Hot List - February, 2011

 
CARLOS
 
 
CARLOS (Sundance Channel) - Available On Demand until 3/16/11.
- Golden Globe winner CARLOS looks like an epic piece of filmmaking.  Anchored by a great performance by Edgar Ramirez, CARLOS feels like a story not to be missed.  At 332 minutes, make sure you schedule your viewing in stages (Sundance Channel is offering the film in 3 installments).
 
 
COLD WEATHER

COLD WEATHER (IFC Films) - Available On Demand until 5/05/11
- After reading some great reviews, I am looking forward to checking out COLD WEATHER directed by Aaron Katz.  I have been intrigued by the mumblecore film movement, especially as it embraces low budget ways of telling stories.
 
 
THESE AMAZING SHADOWS

THESE AMAZING SHADOWS (IFC Films)
- I am dying to see THESE AMAZING SHADOWS, a documentary about how the National Film Registry selects the greatest of the great films.  Some interesting filmmakers like Chris Nolan, Rob Reiner and Barbara Kopple are interviewed.

6 Things You Need To Know About Ed Burns’ THE FITZGERALD FAMILY CHRISTMASDecember 10, 2012


6 Things You Need To Know About Ed Burns’ THE FITZGERALD FAMILY CHRISTMAS

Tribeca Film

With The Fitzgerald Family Christmas, Burns returns to the working-class, Irish-American roots of The Brothers McMullen. Reuniting with McMullen co-stars Connie Britton (Friday Night Lights), and Mike McGlone, along with Noah Emmerich (Little Children, Beautiful Girls) and Kerry Bishé (Newlyweds, Red State), Burns seamlessly weaves an ensemble story of adult siblings dealing with the desire of their estranged father (Ed Lauter, The Artist, The Longest Yard) to return home for Christmas for the first time since he walked out on his family 20 years ago. Family rifts emerge, and like with any family, Christmas brings a mixed bag of complicated emotions and dynamics. Alliances form, old wounds are reopened or glossed over, and the possibility for a new hope and forgiveness emerges.
