SXSW Review: ‘The Peanut Butter Falcon’ is an Effortlessly Charming Retread

A triumph for diversity in casting, The Peanut Butter Falcon is an enormously endearing and often funny drama about two outlaws: Zac (Zack Gottsagen), a 22-year-old with down syndrome, and Tyler (Shia Labeouf), a small-time crab fisher who sets his competition’s traps ablaze. Without family, Zac escapes from a nursing home thanks to his roommate (played by the always delightful Bruce Dern) and the head nurse Eleanor (Dakota Johnson) is given her marching orders to go find him. After reviewing the evidence in his room, she deduces he’s heading to a wrestling camp in Aiken, Sc headed by the Salt Water Redneck (Thomas Hayden Church).

While breaking only minor new ground in the unlikely duo/outlaw chase picture, the film is a triumph for actor Gottsagen, in a role written specifically for him by first-time feature filmmakers Tyler Nelson and Michael Schwartz. Zac finds himself stuck in a

All Caps, all the time: why are so many shows bombarding us with giant fonts?

From Killing Eve to Mindhunter and Narcos, there’s a trend in TV for colossal captions. It’s a confident style choice that nods to noir fiction

David Fincher’s work is full of fine details. You could conceivably watch his entire back catalogue without realising, for instance, that the camera tends to mimic the actors’ smallest movements. But during the editing process for his 2017 TV drama Mindhunter, he had an idea that nobody can have failed to notice. “I’m not sure which episode we were watching,” editor Tyler Nelson told the Art of the Cut website, “but he said, ‘Let’s fill the frame with a big location card.’”

Mindhunter fans are split between loving its colossal captions and hating their overbearing presence

Below-the-Line Unions Work on Ways to Pass Torch to Next Generation

Below-the-Line Unions Work on Ways to Pass Torch to Next Generation
In an industry that has long relied on apprenticeship programs to pass down skills from one generation to the next, the breakdown of the old studio system — along with the growing itinerant nature of below-the-line employment — have posed new challenges to the transfer of knowledge to younger artisans. In response, unions and guilds have devised new ways to pass the baton.

Steven Poster, national president of the Intl. Cinematographers Guild (Iatse Local 600), explains that in earlier times, film crews worked together for years. Film schools weren’t as prevalent as they are today, and newer union members learned skills through on-the-job training directly from those with more experience.

To replace that tradition, at a time when camera crews tend to fluctuate more, the union has set up the Local 600 Mentorship Program, a pilot effort designed to help existing members learn from an experienced Dp — but away from the set. The

'Taking the Stage': Ep Nick Lachey on the show's second take

MTV's second season of "Taking the Stage" premieres tonight and it has definitely had a makeover.

Season one fans will recognize dancer/playboy Tyler Nelson and singer/drama queen Mia Carruthers, who isn't a regular, but will have a recurring role.

What you won't recognize are the gaggle of new incoming freshmen. Also other than tonight's hour-long premiere episode, the show is also only a half hour this season as opposed to last season's full hour of weekly guilty pleasure. New episodes air an hour later than last season, as well, after "America's Best Dance Crew," so it remains to be seen if its audience will stick around for new episodes in their later time slot.

"Taking the Stage's" virgin season roped us in with its real life "Fame" storylines and diverse cast. Last season, the show performed well among 12-34 year olds in the Nielsen ratings. Each week, those
