Nick Cassavetes’ YELLOW (Heather Wahlquist, Sienna Miller, Lucy Punch, Ray Liotta, Melanie Griffith, Gena Rowland) had its day at the Toronto International Film Festival, and the reviews are came back stellar. Check out this teaser, and follow Yellow over here.
“Yellow is a magical realist technicolor drug movie about a pill-popping aging beauty (Heather Wahlquist) who burns her last bridge in L.A. and must return to the hick town where she’s been storing her skeletons.”
“Officially the most refreshing breath of air at this year’s Tiff [sic], Nick Cassavetes’ new feature ‘Yellow’, is a step into crazy terrritory, far from his recent romantic comedy fare and “Alpha Dog.”
“While a lesser script or less confidant [sic] director would provide a lot of talk talk talk to indicate the emotional tenor, Cassavetes transforms Mary’s boorish family into, well, asses and pigs and chickens. Countless dramatic products will strive to paint the family dinner as a hellish nightmare, but Cassavetes just boldly makes it so. And this little glimpse into what I (think?) is essentially a bi-polar mind goes a long way to explaining why sufferers of that particular malady resist tempering it. Half of Mary’s delusions are beautiful and joyous, even if they do end up hurtling her into oncoming traffic.”

It’s official - Harmony Korine’s “booze, drug and violence-fuelled bacchanal” Spring Breakers will have its North American premiere at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival. The festival begins in 23 days.
Noah Cowan, Artistic Director for TIFF, said of the film:
“There are signature moments of montage in this film that will influence generations to come. Harmony Korine thinks in pictures that no one else could even dream up.”
