The Filmosophers Movie Talk

Kill The Messenger is held over at the Orpheum. "A lot like the reporting that St Vincent posterinspired it: a good introduction to a diabolically tangled tale." - NPR  "Flies high on Jeremy Renner's all-stops-out performance as 1990s-era journalist Gary Webb." - Peter Travers, R.Stone

It will behoove all film fans in our cultural district and region when the Orpheum gets funding to open up their second screen. Do you have some interest in this?

Very cool to see Bill Murray's latest film St. Vincent starting Friday at the Ottumwa 8. Thank you  Vickie and your find folks. Bill Murray's "freewheeling, deadpan image fuses so thoroughly with Vincent's own endearingly grizzled misanthropy that it's hard to tell where the actor ends and the geezer begins. We've seen similar stuff in Little Miss Sunshine and Up - but it sails ahead on the collective charms of its ensemble cast," including Melissa McCarthy, Naomi Watts Chris O'Dowd. "...all hail Bill Murray who whacks away at the script's sentimental softballs like A-Rod in full swing." - P. Travers, R.S. Chris will have a review for the highly anticipated Birdman.

Early buzz on Christopher Nolan's Interstellar was it may be a "flawed" masterpiece. It's getting good reviews and we believe this film may be even more deeply appreciated by the filmosophical set. We'll talk about that, new and notable fall releases and more, on the Filmosopher's Movie Talk, with Chris Busch & Bruce Miller, "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions." Fridays at 12:30 again Sunday mornings, 11:30. "What happens when scientists bump up against these things that defy easy characterization and analysis- things like love? We are at an interesting moment, where science realizes it has to begin addressing abstractions and human elements and I wanted to get that in the film." -
