FANTASTIC FEST Day 3…
 
Saturday, September 24th…
 
Today, I was fired up for four films…  Again, I picked four films when met upon their own terms were absolutely fantastic.  I didn’t have a lot of research on these in advance.  I prefer to allow the fates to guide me.   Let’s just dive straight on in.
 
SCIENCE FICTION VOLUME ONE: THE OSIRIS CHILD
 
Ok…  So that’s a mouthful right?   All I knew going into this film was that it was apparently an Australian Independent Science Fiction film.  That’s all I needed to know.  Fantastic Fest was getting it’s world premiere – and this would give me an excuse to wear my very sci fi shirt with the space girl tie…   and yes I do think about that kind of silly stuff. 
 
But really – I had no clue visually as to what kind of science fiction film it was going to be.   As it turns out… it exists in the far flung future where humans have settled into the inhabitable worlds of our Galaxy, if not others.   It seems the Galactic version of humanity is using Prison labor to quickly settle into various planets.   We’re not really seeing Aliens in this film, there’s something wicked odd, but it ain’t really an alien.  More on that later.  
 
Anyways, the story is centered upon Daniel MacPherson’s Lt. Kane Sommerville who is essentially a corporate military man all into the infrastructure of the corporate planet we’re mainly at here.   His daughter, Indi, is played by Teagan Croft, who also narrates

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. It’s 2:30am, I have to be up for an interview in about 6 hours, and then a long day of crazy Fantastic Fest movies after that, so I’m going to do a short version of the BTS column. Sorry for slacking, but I’m a growing boy and need my beauty rest!
Today we have a pretty nifty shot from the making of Disney’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea that shows a little glimpse at what that set actually looked like in a way that never showed up on camera. As a bonus you also get a good look at James Mason being smooth as hell. Check it out:

The Diva Del Mar Reviews Dearest Sister at Fantastic Fest

One of the many treats of attending Fantastic Fest is the opportunity to watch movies from many countries, depicting stories of other cultures that one doesn’t easily encounter in American mainstream cinema. Foreign independent cinema allows a first person perspective of another culture and director Mattie Do brings us the 13th film ever made in the country of Laos: Dearest Sister.
The story revolves around the relationship of two cousins. Nok, the younger of the two women, is a poor country girl who is sent to care for her married rich cousin. Her family needs the money and Nok’s cousin, Ana, is slowly losing her sight to an unnamed disease while her busy husband, Jakob, is struggling to keep his business afloat. Nok dominates the screen time and the first third of the film follows her about as she explores the city and her new digs. Nok quickly succumbs to the materialism of the big city and we discover that she has a very weak moral compass in the face of temptation, even if it means sacrificing the well-being of her benefactor, Ana. Nok’s treachery and deceit create the framework for the major story arc, while the subplots surrounding her relationships with the lesser characters in the story add a depth of understanding towards the general state of life for women in Laos.
The film introduces a supernatural element through Ana’s character. And, although this film is characterized as horror, I would say

The Diva Del Mar Review The Autopsy of Jane Doe
 

Allow me to begin with perspective. My screening for this movie was at 8:00AM after a full day of Fantastic Fest films and mingling. I dragged my sleepy ass to the Alamo Drafthouse, seated myself next to the other hardcore media maniacs willing to lose sleep for films, and hoped for the best.
I wasn’t disappointed. If you like horror movies, one the most fabulous moments in watching a movie is when you realize that you are truly having a fun with the film. I had that glorious “Eureka!” moment watching The Autopsy of Jane Doe by Andre Ovedal.
This movie is true horror and is firmly anchored around the dynamics of a father, Tony Tilden and son, Austin Tilden, played respectively by Brian Cox and Emile Hirsh.  Tony is a seasoned coroner, and he has been teaching his son the family business, presumably since the death of his wife. Austin has other plans for his life, and has yet to share this information with his dad. From the get-go you recognize the fantastic chemistry between the two main actors, and it goes a long way to create the sense of tangible affection this father & son have for each other. They truly enjoy each other’s company, despite their gruesome work, and their back and forth feels natural.
The plot starts by establishing how father and son work together as a forensic investigative team. They approach each autopsy with honest curiosity and Tony guides
