CHICAGO – The legacy of public housing is one of the strangest forces of karma in the City of Chicago. For example, sites that were once some of the roughest and most neglected housing for the poor now contain luxury condos. It is the people of those former hellholes that still remember the sorrowful history of what they once called home. The American Theater Company (ATC) have gathered these stories for the poignant and extraordinary “The Projects.”
Film News: Corey Feldman Chats Up ‘6 Degrees of Hell’ on Indie Outlook
CHICAGO – Actor Corey Feldman, the star of iconic films such as “The Goonies,” “Stand by Me” and “The Lost Boys,” took part in an exclusive interview with Indie Outlook, the independent film blog launched by Hollywood Chicago staff writer Matt Fagerholm. Feldman discussed his new role in Joe Raffa’s supernatural thriller, “6 Degrees of Hell,” which is now available on DVD.
Fagerholm will return to Vocalo 89.5FM on Friday, November 30th, for the third installment of its Indie Outlook series highlighting the hottest cinematic tickets in town. Hollywood Chicago’s own Pat McDonald appeared on the most recent Indie Outlook podcast for an in-depth dissection of two new biopics offering a backstage glimpse of the undisputed Master of Suspense, Alfred Hitchcock. Sacha Gervasi’s theatrically released trifle, “Hitchcock,” serves up a witty yet watered down version of Hitch (played with droll glee by Anthony Hopkins), while Julian Jarrold’s “The Girl” (broadcast on HBO) takes a darker route by exposing the director’s notorious obsession with his leading ladies. The film is deeply flawed, but it’s bolstered by a brilliant performance by Toby Jones, who matches Hitchcock’s voice with such startling accuracy that it may chill film buffs to the bone. The podcast is available on Fagerholm’s Indie Outlook site along with the Feldman interview.
