The Mesa Arts Center campus will turn into a virtual winter wonderland over the weekend for the city’s ninth annual Mesa Arts Festival.
As the year draws to a close, new awards and Top 10 lists are springing up right and left, many of them singing the praises of the technically brilliant but emotionally flat “Gravity.” While it’s no doubt a must-see experience for any cinephile, the same could be said of an equally immersive but far richer film, “The Great Beauty.” For nearly two and a half hours, this Fellini-esque epic transports us right to the heart of Rome’s vibrant nightlife and high society as we follow an aging journalist who begins to see the world around him from a new perspective.
A cinematic sparring match unlike any other in recent memory, “Some Velvet Morning” offers an unflinching glimpse into the lives of an alluring prostitute, Velvet (Alice Eve), and her domineering lover, Fred (Stanley Tucci). Over the course of 83 minutes, we eavesdrop on this toxic pair as they engage in an impassioned war of words – chatting, groping, yelling and sobbing, all within the confines of her upscale townhouse. Written and directed by Tony-nominated playwright Neil LaBute, this low-budget chamber piece has been flying under the radar since its premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in April, but will surely blindside audiences this winter with nuanced performances and a certain shocking plot twist. Ahead of its Valley release at Harkins Shea 14 in Scottsdale this weekend, GetOut spoke with LaBute about the film, his French influences, and experience collaborating with Tucci and Eve.

A Belgian drama with bluegrass music may seem like an unlikely combo, but director Felix van Groeningen pulls it off spectacularly in his heart-wrenching new film “The Broken Circle Breakdown,” which is already garnering whispers of Academy Award recognition. While other foreign-language Oscar hopefuls such as “Wadjda” and “The Hunt” have come and gone from theaters (with others such as “Gloria” and “The Past” not making their way to Phoenix until early 2014), “Broken Circle” is arriving this month, opening at Harkins Camelview 5 in Scottsdale this Friday, Dec. 6.

Like many of its ilk, the purpose of the Filmstock Film Festival is to showcase the talents of independent artists to a broader audience. What makes Filmstock different, however, is that all the films shown during the three-day event are shorts produced in Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico or Utah — the Four Corners states.
