CHICAGO – HollywoodChicago.com writer Matt Fagerholm will chat about the latest independent films on Vocalo 89.5FM from 9:30am to 10am on Friday, October 26th. Topics will include Tom Tykwer, Andy and Lana Wachowski’s hugely ambitious adaptation of David Mitchell’s acclaimed 2004 novel, “Cloud Atlas,” which opens in theaters on Friday, October 26th.

This is the second installment of Vocalo’s Indie Outlook series featuring Fagerholm, who created the independent film blog, Indie Outlook, this past summer. The site recently provided coverage of the Chicago International Film Festival with three in-depth interviews. Chicago’s own Kris Swanberg (“Kissing on the Mouth”) discussed her subtly eerie drama, “Empire Builder,” while Leslie Zemeckis (wife of Robert) chatted about her documentary, “Bound by Flesh,” which chronicled the lives of conjoined twins Daisy and Violet Hilton.

Director Brad Lichtenstein also discussed his Wisconsin-set documentary, “As Goes Janesville,” which follows the titular town’s efforts to rebuild their economy after the closing of a GM plant. It was Lichtenstein’s lens that captured the now-infamous footage of Governor Scott Walker’s “divide and conquer” comment. Most recently, Fagerholm conducted a podcast interview with filmmaker Stephen Cone, whose excellent ensemble drama, “The Wise Kids,” will have a week-long run at the Gene Siskel Film Center starting October 26th.

TV, DVD, BLU-RAY & THEATER REVIEWS

  • Bad Words

    Looming over “Bad Words” is the potential it could have had, as is, were it released ten years ago. With its focus of R-rated behavior poking at the projected innocence of children, along with the couple of chromosomes that keep Bateman’s Trilby from being a Vince Vaughn character, this movie is certainly a product of the comedies that have sculpted out the manchild story in the past decade.

  • Winter's Tale

    The theatrical poster for “Winter’s Tale,” after promising that “It’s not a true story, it’s a love story,” made a large demand from its viewers at the bottom: “This Valentine’s Day, Believe In Miracles.” While there is indeed a difference between filmmaking and marketing, it is hard to not imagine writer/director Akiva Goldsman whispering “believe in miracles” into the ear of every executive who helped “Winter’s Tale” come to life, immediately after throwing glitter on them.
