The Filmosophers Movie Talk

The well reviewed Nightcrawler, starring Jake Gyllenhaal starts Friday at the Nightcrawler posterOrpheum Theatre. Critics, including our own Chris Busch are raving about this. "The best Martin Scorsese movie not directed by Scorsese. It's that good, that assured, that unshakable. Scores as both urban thriller and 'Network'-like comment on the media."  "Jake Gyllenhaal's best performance."- Chris Busch, The Filmosophers" A mesmerizing cipher, Jake Gyllenhaal's Lou is a spiritual descendant of Robert De Niro's Travis Bickle in Taxi Driver, and of the withholding protagonists in the existential French crime films of Robert Bresson and Jean-Pierre Melville." - Richard Corliss, Time MagazineThe wonderful documentary AWAKE: The Life Of Yogananda has been held over. "Fittingly enlightening, a vivid, elegantly assembled portrait of the savvy guru with the cherubic face and penetrating gaze who brought meditation to the West."- L.A. TimesWe'll talk about the new releases, which includes two or three award worthy films, what we've seen (Interstellar) and more, on the Filmosophers "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions", Fridays 12:30 PM again Sunday mornings 11:30. "Love is the one thing that transcends time and space."- Interstellar

AWAKE: The Life of Yogananda poster

Starting Friday at the Orpheum- AWAKE: The Life of Yogananda. "Explores the life and teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda, who authored the spiritual classic Autobiography of a Yogi." I remember seeing this book in many MIU dorm rooms. "Filmed over three years with the participation of 30 countries around the world, the documentary examines the world of yoga, modern and ancient, east and west and explores why millions today have turned their attention inwards, bucking the limitations of the material world in pursuit of self-realization." "...the story is compelling, as is the testimony of devotees, (including) Ravi Shankar, Deepak Chopra and George Harrison." - N.Y. Times. ~Reveal Your Self~

Inception Director Christopher Nolan's highly anticipated Interstellar opens this weekend. Chris has reviews of Whiplash and the Edward Snowden doc Citizenfour. We'll talk all this  and more on the Filmosophers, with Chris Busch and Bruce Miller "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions." Fridays, 12:30 PM again Sunday mornings 11:30.
“If you keep running after too many hobbies you won’t have any time left for bliss.” - Yogananda
