- 20120622 - Filmosophers

This weekend we'll talk about new films in theaters, including Brave, the 13thKumare poster release from Pixar; Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, a "mashup of history lesson and monster flick" and the (possibly!) filmosophical Seeking a Friend for the End of the World. Sometimes we're not sure what to say about a film if we haven't seen it. You'll usually get a feel from critic's consensus. But as you're aware (and awareness is the key), the spiritual or filmosophically inclined movie fan's experience of films can be quite different from mainstream perceptions. This may be true about Seeking a Friend... and especially so for the documentary- Kumaré. "The true story about a false prophet. Kumaré follows American filmmaker Vikram Gandhi as he transforms himself into a Indian guru, hoping to prove the absurdity of blind faith. Instead, he finds himself forging profound connections with people from all walks of life."

We'll alert you to small gems that may get lost amongst the "blockbusters", including Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom; Safety Not Guaranteed and Beasts Of The Southern Wild, which sounds fascinating! "An exceptional American independent feature that deserves the best efforts to tap audiences that would surely embrace it." "Few more brazenly cinematic pieces will come our way this year." We're the Filmosophers, with Chris Busch and Bruce Miller "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions." Fridays, 12:30 PM Central repeated Sundays 9:00 AM. "I fake so much I forget who I was" - Kumaré
