In the winter of 2003, a catastrophic fire erupted in a Rhode Island concert club, ultimately claiming 100 lives. Out of the ashes of the tragedy arose an equally profound story of hope. "41" tells the remarkable story of Nicky O'Neill, the young actor, writer and musician who left the world at age 18 but who left behind a message of deep spiritual importance that has already inspired thousands. "41" weaves together the story of a beautiful life cut short with the saga of a community in mourning and a family finding its way out of the darkness.
Photographer Scott Indermaur creates one-of-a-kind portraits of 11 individuals who have been given the unique challenge of symbolically capturing their essence and spirituality in a small box.
His project, REVEALED and This I Believe REVEALED have included 160 subjects from around the country. What he finds to be most interesting is the profound effect this project has had on so many of his subjects. Given the opportunity to look within, many experience a journey that takes them much deeper than their initial inner self-examination … which reveals undiscovered truths about themselves.
The film explores the insights and the impact REVEALED has had on these individuals and on Indermaur himself.
He was everything She imagined. An unexpected night offers the truth about the perfect dream date in this black comedy short.
While I won't compare “The Green Lantern” to any of the recent comic book adaptations that have impressed me beyond measure (“Spider-Man 2”, “The Dark Knight” and “Iron Man”), “The Green Lantern” certainly entertained me more than I expected it to, especially within the realm of DC Comics adaptations. I liked it more than just a little bit, and I expect some negative feedback on this review, based on the general consensus that the film is what many would consider 'a dog'.
A brief yet tense phone conversation between politically connected powerhouse Tom Buchanan (Mark Grant) and a desperate lower class thug named Judd (Eric Scheiner) over Buchanan's bisexual wife Daisy (Jennifer McCartney), her working class lover Lolita (Christy Scott-Cashman) and Bartlesby (Angel Connell), the enigmatic head of Buchanan's personal security force, results in an interlocking series of actions which culminates in a brutal murder. Thereafter the Buchanans in a subsequent phone conversation grapple with the fallout from the crime, its alleged resolution, and the effect the incident has had on their open marriage.

And how about that delightful husband of hers?
When watching a short film, you have to be willing to allow certain deficiencies to pass without judgement. Analysing a 14 minute film is much different than dissecting a feature. One can't expect a short to meet the same quality of plot and structure, character, dialogue, and all those other trademarks of quality (or not) feature films. It's simply unreasonable to expect.
There are few authors who have contributed as much to the world of horror literature as H.P. Lovecraft. Stuart Gordon has proven that no other filmmaker shares his appreciation for the work of Lovecraft. His career essentially began with Re-Animator, he has crafted some fine adaptations since, and I'm certain he'll choose to cap it off with yet another adaptation. I personally would have it no other way, as there would be no more suiting a way to bookmark a fine career.
