And All Free Today

The good folks at Sight and Sound magazine have an inside cover ad for a new website that’s sprung up showing interesting indie movies…… FOR FREE!!

There’s not a huge amount on there as the thing is very much in its infancy but it’d be good to drum up some support in the hope the site expands and offers up lots of little known gems for us to enjoy en masse.

One flick I did notice was the 2001 Ray Lawrence film LANTANA. I recall seeing this picture in an Australian double bill with SOMERSAULT and being HUGELY impressed by it, so much so that I bought it as a Christmas present for someone.

If I get time this week (things are still heaving busy) I may take in a flick, blog about it, then demand you watch it for yourselves. After all, there’s no excuse not to……

Check it out:

    Lantanna is indeed excellent. LaPaglia is a cut above his supporting cast but they give good account of themselves.

    Speaking of Aussie indie I highly recommend Candy. A pre-stardom Heath Ledger gives a preview of the talent he was soon to become in this gritty but charming junkie flick.

  2. True, I think Kerry Armstrong should be given a special mention as LaPagia’s long suffering wife Sonja…. A lovely, engaging performance.

    It’s scary that you say Candy is “Pre fame” when it came out in 2006 …. Of course it was Brokeback that really launched the dude which was round about the same time. I’ve added CANDY to my list… look forward to taking it in.

    Have you had a look at the movies on the free site? What’s your nomination for first watch?

  3. The Workplace Adversary

    Nice t see some Robotech on the list top quality Anime, can’t say I’ve heard of anything else on the list but both:


    On the night of her wedding, Jacob’s disabled sister commits suicide. But a chance discovery makes him suspect that a serial killer is at work and he has no choice but to investigate, in this atmospheric thriller.


    Interstate 60

    From the writer/director of Back To The Future comes an original and fantastical road movie, starring James Marsden and Gary Oldman. This film is highly recommended by the IndieMovies team.

    look interesting.
