Views of "Rosewater"/New Friends in Crested Butte/Looking at "Big Eyes"

Welcome to Monday...


Over the weekend Entertainment Weekly put out two photos from Jon Stewart's "Rosewater" starring Gael Garcia Bernal as real life journalist Maziar Bahari who was arrested in Iran in 2009 as he was reporting the election in that country.  Any number of outlets reported the photos with an accompanying story.  We believe fairly strongly that "Rosewater" will make the Telluride lineup owing to its designation by the Toronto film fest as a Canadian premiere.

Here are those photos:

Stories/Posts that went with these photos this weekend:


As I'm sure you're aware, I have posted most recently from Crested Butte, CO. as the CEO and I have been Art Festivaling this past weekend.  Interestingly, I met Michael Brody who is the co-head honcho of the Crested Butte Film Festival.  Michael is in his fourth year re-constructing a festival that was defunct for about six or seven years.

I took a look at their program form last year and ;let me tell you, they've got things going in the right direction.  Last year's lineup included "20 Feet from Stardom", "After Tiller" and "Rust and Bone" among other offerings.

Michael also shared some of the films that they've planned for this year's fest which runs Sept. 25-28, and they've got some quality lined up.  If you're in the neighborhood the last weekend in September, run to Crested Butte and catch a film.

We have our first photos of Tim Burton's "Big Eyes" starring Christoph Waltz and Amy Adams in a true story about the art of Margaret Keane and her husband Walter who was credited for a good long while with the artwork of characters with "big eyes".  The film has not been announced for any festival to date and Burton did play "Ed Wood" AT TFF in 1994 so it's not a complete impossibility that we could see it pop up in three and a half weeks in the San Juans.  Here from The Playlist and FirstShowing are the pics:
