‘Coming Soon to IndieFlix’ brought to you by IndieFlix’s Eric NielsenSeptember 21st, 2012 | Posted by in New Releases
Eric Nielsen is head of Filmmaker Relations here at IndieFlix. Each week Eric sends an email to our Team announcing recently acquired films and New Releases. These emails contain witty descriptions, personal anecdotes, and a disturbing video or picture. Here’s this week’s:
The Juniper Tree - a haunting and meditative tale of medieval witchcraft. If Ingmar Bergman made a movie about witches, it would probably look a lot like The Juniper Tree. Oh yeah, Bjork‘s in it. Funny side story: I actually had lunch with Bjork recently and she was coming on to me hard, but I kept it professional and was eventually able to acquire this film.
Conceiving Ada – a weird combination of science fiction and a period costume drama starring Tilda Swinton. Tilda is a good friend of mine, we brunch often. She was so happy with IndieFlix’s stellar customer service and handling of her other film, Teknolust, that she handed me this one. Showbiz, it’s a hard job, but one of us has to be out there rubbing shoulders with film stars, might as well be me. Please don’t be jealous.
Un Chien Andalou – witness the birth of cinematic surrealism in this strangely wonderful film directed by Luis Bunuel and written by Salvador Dali. Un Chien Andalou was the inspiration for the song Debaser by the influential alternative rock band, The Pixies. I tried to arrange a power brunch with Luis Bunuel and Salvador Dali, but they’re both dead.
Take a gander at these documentaries, they’re quirky, crazy and right up your indie alley…
Todd P Goes To Austin - dive into the smelly pit of the underground DIY music scene. These kids have trust funds, a bunch of free time, and they’re ready to rock!
The Mark of Cain – a brutal inside look at the world of Russian prison tattoos, referenced during the making of David Cronenberg’s Eastern Promises.
