Gabriel, Rory Culkin
From the opening scenes of “Gabriel" (read our review), the debut feature from writer/director Lou Howe, the audience is immediately tossed into the ongoing tumult that is the life of the title character, a troubled young man brilliantly played by Rory Culkin. We’re not given any clues to the drama, other than a years-old love letter from a girl named Alice, to whom Gabriel plans to propose. While this seems odd (if he’s planning to propose, why doesn’t he know where Alice lives?), it’s also instantly compelling. We want to find out who Gabriel is, where he’s coming from, and why he won’t answer his phone.

Gabriel, Rory Culkin
When "Gabriel," the debut feature from writer/director Lou Howe, begins, it seems like any other romantic drama about two young people who are very in love. Our title character (Rory Culkin) takes a bus out to his girlfriend's dorm. He bangs on her door, a wadded up piece of a letter balled in his fist. When a different girl answers, she informs him that the girl he is looking for doesn't live there, especially when he tells her that the address on the envelope is several years old. "This is a freshman dorm," the girl says. And that's when it becomes very clear that this movie is not your typical romantic drama; it's far more unhinged than that.

September 13th will mark the 20th anniversary of the release of what would be Nirvana's final album, In Utero, and it's easy to forget just how important it was at the time. The group were arguably the biggest band on the planet, the reluctant leaders of the "alternative" music scene that completely changed the landscape. And that's not to mention the various controversies surrounding the LP, from the artwork to the recording process itself, which found the band working with famed independent engineer Steve Albini (and fans should check his recent interview with Vish Khanna about the making of the album, and what exactly went down in the studio—it's a must listen). And then, there was that music video...

The only thing you need to know about "Movie 43" is that it features a ton of short comedy segments, with a bunch of stars, and if you don't like the one you're currently watching, you don't have to worry because the next one is just around the corner. While the first trailer did it's best to give a broad overview of what audiences are in for, this new, filthy red band spot narrows down the scope a bit more.
