European Union Film Fest: Final Week / Flickering Empire at the CUP Blog

Magical_Girl-Carlos_Vermut-03

I have a new blog post at Time Out Chicago today concerning Carlos Vermut’s Magical Girl, a terrific new Spanish film that plays twice during the last week of the European Union Film Festival. It is not only one of my favorites of the 11 EUFF films I saw this year, it is literally the only one that does not have a U.S. distributor. I compare it to the best work of David Lynch because of its darkness, eroticism and puzzle-like nature but this second feature by a promising young filmmaker is also a work of utter originality. If you live in Chicago, don’t miss it. It’s a magical movie and this may be your only chance to see it.

In other news, Flickering Empire has been selected as the featured book on the Columbia University Press blog this week. They’ve featured a nifty two-part interview with me, a guest blog post by me, and run a contest to give away a free copy of the book. You can enter said contest by e-mailing your name and address to pl2164@columbia.edu. Winners will be chosen Friday, March 26 at 1PM. You can check out the blog here: http://www.cupblog.org
