Final Draft

The latest issue of FILMMAKER has just hit stands and now it's your chance to pick up the most comprehensive coverage of independent film. Here's a sneak peak at some of the things inside this issue...

MISTER LONELY: It's been nine years since Harmony Korine (Gummo, julien donkey-boy) has made a feature film. In that time he's left the hard partying, house burning lifestyle behind him and found a new outlook on life. This rebirth is self-evident in his latest film, Mister Lonely, which follows a group of impersonators -- including Michael Jackson (played by Diego Luna) and Marilyn Monroe (Samantha Morton) -- who find refuge in a Scottish castle. (Oh, and don't forget the flying nuns.) It's filled with Korine's trademark hijinks but embedded is a story about self-discovery and hope.

We asked director Michael Tully (Cocaine Angel, Silver Jew) to interview Korine for this issue's cover story ("Lasting Impression"). "Harmony Korine proved to be a warm, open subject, ready to discuss any question I posed to him. Having read almost every interview with him concerning his dazzlingly lovely Mister Lonely, I am confident that our conversation ventured into uncharted waters and is certain to provide readers with knowledge heretofore unseen regarding the affable Mr. Korine."
STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURE: Since leaked photos of the abuses at Abu Ghraib were shown on the 24-hour news networks a few years ago there have been many reports (and documentaries) giving in-depth exploration of what happened inside the prison walls. But Errol Morris wasn't interested in doing that when he decided to make a doc about the photographs. Instead the famed documentarian's Standard Operating Procedure goes deeper to examine what the photos show (and don't show) as well as speaking to the guards who participated. Senior editor Peter Bowen says when talking to Morris ("They Shoot Pictures Don't They?") you can tell his mind is always exploring. "In being one of the first people to talk to Errol Morris about his new film, I watched the complex machinery of his mind at work, darting from Susan Sontag to Abu Ghraib, from Samuel Taylor Coleridge to George W. Bush, always trying to think beyond the question."

REPRISE: "I first saw Reprise at a film festival back in fall 2006 and was completely blown away by it," says Nick Dawson as he thinks back on his interview with Reprise director Joachim Trier ("Once More, With Feeling"). "Movies as vital and exciting like this are not as common as they once were. From watching Reprise you can tell that Joachim Trier has a really exciting future ahead of him, and interviewing him only confirmed that impression for me." And Trier's Norwegian countrymen feel the same as this story of two best friends who share the dream of becoming celebrated novelists only to find disappointment and depression recently swept the major awards at the Amandas (Norway's Oscars). Now it's ready to go Stateside.
