First Reformed is a disaster movie where the dread of Earth’s slow-drip destruction weighs on the protagonist’s, and the audience’s, shoulders. It’s a fantasy film in the sense that a spiritual mind is capable of transcendence (or in this case, astral projection). One could call it a horror movie, too: Toller (Ethan Hawke), the minister of a Revolution-era chapel in upstate New York, finds himself haunted by the death of his son, the capitalistic tendencies of a nearby megachurch and the plight of Mary (Amanda Seyfried), who recently lost her conservationist husband. The scares, bleeding out of his unraveling, are psychological, yet supernatural — not unlike The Bible. Watching the film, out now in theaters, is like witnessing an accomplished mathematician scribble down the solution to a chalkboard-sprawled equation. The scholar at work is Paul Schrader, who wrote the screenplays for four timeless Martin Scorsese films (Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, The Last … [Read more...] about Paul Schrader, the writer of Taxi Driver, is back with First Reformed.

A fake trailer for a movie based on Friends has taken over Facebook feeds and YouTube’s trending section in the last week, causing a stir among hopeful fans and skeptics. The trailer, so obviously fake, continues to circulate at a pretty staggering rate, leading some people to ask why there’s such a hubbub about a fan-made trailer for a movie that’s never going to happen. The bigger question, however, is why does this keep happening on an almost annual basis? A well-done fake trailer for a feature-length Friends movie that could almost be believed as real first appeared on YouTube in 2013. It was created by a YouTube user named cheliara and published on Sept. 23, 2013. The video amassed just under 300,000 views in the last four years; not a small number by any means, but not overly successful either. Cheliara mentioned in the video’s description that it was a project she made for class. This may not seem important, but it’s actually pretty crucial. … [Read more...] about Why do people keep falling for the same fake Friends movie trailer on YouTube?
