Dress your dorm room right with Austin purveyors of poster art
Screens Story  August 24, 2012, by Marc Savlov
"...Posters for Film Geeks: Steer clear of the obvious (James Dean, À bout de souffle, glow-in-the-dark Nosferatu pop-up posters) unless you plan on being glued to your laptop and Netflix all semester, in which case no one's going to see your room anyway. One of three fine places to find new, exciting, and relevant film-related one-sheets and the like is Alamo Drafthouse offshoot Mondo..."

Speed Travels, American Hipsters, Design Stars, and more
DAILY Screens  May 29, 2012, by Kimberley Jones
"...I replaced cable 9 months ago with the cobble-together – Netflix, Hulu Plus, renewed devotion to brick-and-mortars like I Luv Video – and that’s the direction a lot of TV viewers are going in. This week’s On the Media devoted a whole episode to the changing ways we consume TV, with a nod to Richard Linklater’s new foray into the fray...."

Director John Gulager brings 'Piranha 3DD' to the Alamo
DAILY Screens  May 24, 2012, by Marc Savlov
"...Now, I go back to The Buddy Holly Story and somehow evidently missed 30 years of Busey. As a filmmaker, my cable got cut off and I was NetFlix'n it for a while, so I missed all this reality TV with Gary on it, constantly."..."

Bedside Manner: In Memoriam
A few mournful words for books discarded
DAILY Books  April 30, 2012, by Lindsey Flatt
"...Within one summery week though, I realized how goddam burned out I was on reading after having done nothing but for four years. Had college *gasp* ruined my desire to read for pleasure? Would I succumb to lesser pursuits like obsessive Netflix browsing? Half-assed attempts at learning the banjo? Uninspired collaging? Yes, yes, yes, and… well, I actually thought some of those pieces were quite good..."

Who's behind the curtain at the online bookmarking social media site?
DAILY Screens  March 14, 2012, by Melanie Haupt

Screens Story  March 2, 2012, by James Renovitch
"...But this brand of math is more than just that Intro to Calculus class we took in high school. This is the good shit that Netflix will (and did) pay a million dollars for – the kind of calculating that makes us log off Pandora because it's getting a little too good at guessing what else would make our ears happy...."

Local doc with stellar ambitions opens at Alamo
DAILY Screens  January 19, 2012, by Marc Savlov
"...Beef and Pie's late-breaking distro deal is something of a coup, incorporating not only First Run Feature's ten-city theatrical release but also video on-demand through Warner Brothers Home Video/Gravitas. Which means you can watch it in the luxury of your own cockpit via Netflix, the iTunes Store, etc..."

There Ain't No Sanity Clause: Nasty Videos for Your Inner Naughty Child
Counter-programming Christmas with bad cheer and body counts
DAILY Screens  December 19, 2011, by Marc Savlov
"...Which brings us to our personal holiday counter-programming: five films, all on DVD and available via Vulcan Video and I Luv Video (please, no Netflix, people), that cut to the grim heart of the holidays. They're not for your grandmother's eyes, to be sure -- that's what George Lucas made the bizarro-world Star Wars Holiday Special for -- but they're guaranteed to subvert holiday viewing habits in the most disturbing yet entertaining ways imaginable..."

Rebuild the Guild
Michael Yates and his fellow artisans bring new life to Austin's cadre of craft
Arts Story  October 7, 2011, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...Consider: Susan Wallace's aluminum grillwork for the doors at HausBar Farms and Ford House Farm, Chris Levack's shade trellises at Whole Foods Market, Blue Genie Art Industries' rendition of Michael O'Brien's immense relief panels on the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum. This isn't work by weekend dabblers; this is the result of much training, much effort, and more hours of industry per day than most people spend watching whatever's in their weekly Netflix queues...."

Kid Powers
Charlie Belle kicks up some Magnetic Fields buzz
DAILY Screens  September 23, 2011, by Cindy Widner
"...We think the kids' surely impending international fame, along with the fact that Strange Powers is now streaming on Netflix, is a fine reason to revisit Andy Campbell's phone interview with Merritt, conducted shortly before the film opened here in November of last year...."

Microcinema Mania
Bimonthly series Cinema41 highlights the underseen and underrated
Screens Story  July 22, 2011, by Marc Savlov
"...Underseen, underappreciated, and both visually and thematically utterly of its time (see: Mare Winningham's deliriously overcropped 'do, future ER star Anthony Edwards' retro-nerd chic), Miracle Mile is exactly the sort of cinematic popcorn-cultural time capsule that tends to slip through the cracks into Netflix oblivion. Released to middling reviews barely a year before the fall of the Berlin Wall and the subsequent dissolution of the Soviet Union, De Jarnatt's minimasterpiece deftly mined that decade's nuclear-tinged nightmares of mutually assured destruction, which at the time infected everything from sappy Sting ballads ("Russians," anyone?) to the sort of uranium-enriched global realpolitik that made the near future so bright that even shades seemed a doubtful buttress against total annihilation..."

More Than Just a Giggle-O
The Ladies Are Funny Festival brings the distaff laffs and more
Arts Story  May 6, 2011, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...In these times, enlightened or otherwise, I'd suggest that: 1) it's dead obvious that humor is not a gender-based phenomenon, and 2) we need, as always, all the laughs we can get. And we can get a lot of laughs, thankfully, from all over, from men and women, on a near-constant level – thanks to live performances and film distribution and Netflix and YouTube and so on...."

When the New Thing Is Old News Already
Call it Murphy's nth Law of Computing: 'Any given program, when running, is obsolete'
Screens Story  March 4, 2011, by Richard Whittaker
"...The recent buzz has been about how brick-and-mortar video-rental chains like Blockbuster and Hollywood Video were crushed by Netflix. (Blockbuster's late-to-the-game attempt at home delivery and streaming trends were just that – late to the game.) Yet their demise is just market correction compared to what happened to the Encyclopaedia Britannica..."

Any Given Wednesday
One man, 10 years, some seriously sublime weirdness
Screens Story  February 18, 2011, by Marc Savlov
"...As a programmer at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, Nilsen brings in the good stuff, often reaching out to fellow cineastes and 35mm collectors to score a 12-reel shot of cinematic intensity so powerful that lives are changed, if not for the better then almost certainly for the, um, freakier. It is a gift fewer and fewer metropolitan moviegoers can lay claim to in this age of me-so-lonely home entertainment hypersystems and those legions of nattering nabobs extolling the virtues of Netflix, Redbox, and Blu-ray onanism...."

"...Either make cable cheap ($10 a month) or make it expensive (like it already is) and cut out 80% of the commercials. I encourage and support the movement to cancel cable service in favor of getting other services with few or no commercials like Netflix and/or just a plain old Internet connection..."

They Are Going to Eat You!
The year in filmishness, 2010.
DAILY Screens  January 6, 2011, by Marc Savlov
"...From Freakonomics to Jane Austin, everyone and everything was savaged by mash-up walkers this year. It was a triple-aught shell of a year, panic-fired into the great, shambling unknown that is the box office (or home theater), the moviegoing public (or I Luv Vulcan/NetFlix devotees), and filmmaking (on HD) itself..."

Drafthouse Films gets into the distribution game with Four Lions
Screens Story  November 5, 2010, by Marc Savlov
"..."We'd been talking about [getting into film distibution] for a while, as a channel for Fantastic Fest and films that get left on the vine, films that we love and the audience loves but for whatever reason don't get picked up for distribution," explains League. But getting into the cutthroat distro market, taking on NetFlix and VOD and a thousand other hazards for what could turn out to be a losing call? (In the U.S., anyway – Four Lions has already blown up, so to speak, the box office in the UK and EU.) Now that's chutzpah...."

Hell on Wheels ... and Weed
Bob Ray takes the show on the road
Screens Story  August 13, 2010, by Marc Savlov
"...Microbudgeted indie film distribution is going through a flux-y kind of hit-or-miss stage right now, with video-on-demand, Netflix, and the perpetual uncertainty of a festival pickup or random encounter with the ever-mysterious Gods of Chance Distro – Ray mentions Will Ferrell's championing of Jody Hill's microindie The Foot Fist Way as an example of the latter – all attracting and/or recoiling from scads of fresh indie product like boozed-up hipsters at a way-afterhours Vice magazine soiree. The bottom line being, barring Sundance glory or improbable YouTube/Vimeo megahits, it's a helluva time to get your cash-poor, narrative-rich labor of cinematic love seen, much less released...."

The Emmys bump two writing categories from the live telecast. Bad move.
Screens Column  August 7, 2009, by Belinda Acosta
"...But clearly, after last year's all-time low, putting on an engaging Emmy Awards show is not the producers' strong suit. Why not take a more nonfiction/documentary-style approach to the presentation? Introduce viewers to the more critically acclaimed work in a way that piques curiosity and drives them to, if not get a cable subscription, check out these series online through Hulu, Netflix, and the myriad other ways to watch TV..."

Austin's B-Side Entertainment rethinks how to get a movie to the masses
Screens Story  February 20, 2009, by Mike Kanin
"...chronic version of Super Size Me called Super High Me, would, on an $8,000 budget, celebrate the widest "on-paper," as Hyams calls it, single-day opening in the history of the industry. And later, when it came time to check on the residual effect of the film – in this case by using Netflix statistics as a barometer – Super High Me was, in the first days of its release, added to more queues than Four Months, Three Weeks and Two Days (115,000-110,000, if you're keeping score), a traditionally marketed arthouse film which had won, among other honors, Cannes' Palme d'Or...."

Screens Story  October 24, 2008, by Marc Savlov
"...Sure, you can Netflix the sleaze by mail or troll your local indie vid outlet, but where's the fun in that? The exploitation films of the Seventies and early to mid-Eighties were made to be screened in cruddy little screw holes with bad bulbs and worse clientele or, alternately, beneath the stars, from the back seat, during drive-in coitus, as nature intended...."

Buy Local During Economic Crisis
Postmarks  October 13, 2008
"...People are hanging on to their money, with good reason. They aren't spending it, which means businesses aren't getting it – national chain businesses, Internet businesses, and, more importantly, local businesses. Personally, I care a lot more that places like Kerbey Lane, Vulcan Video, and BookPeople stay in business than I do that places like Netflix and Amazon make their profits..."

VHS, I can't quit you
DAILY Screens  May 13, 2008, by Kimberley Jones
"...Granted, they come in raggedy packaging, and the ribbon's a little rough on some of them, and a 15-year-old VHS is probably not the best way for me to finally break down and watch Fanny and Alexander, but there's something wonderfully comforting to that familiar sound of tape wheels whirring. Besides, haven't you been feeling a bit guilty about your Netflix subscription when there are nice places like the Movie Store right around the corner? Also: Two York Peppermint Patties for a quarter!..."

EVR: e-flux video rental
Arthouse's EVR: e-flux video rental offers a chance not only to see some very interesting, hard-to-find pieces of film and video art, but also to participate in a study of our own patterns of communication
Arts Review  December 22, 2006, by Nikki Moore
"...At a time when we all might have thought that video rental was becoming passé, taken over by online video streaming and Netflix, the self-described "New York-based information bureau" e-flux presents a joint opening of three such rental locations in Austin, Istanbul, and the Canary Islands. An interesting assortment of apparently unrelated choices, to be sure … which is something that might initially be said of the e-flux video rental (EVR) project itself, since its video holdings snowball from city to city as area curators add their favorite and often obscure pieces of video art to the EVR mix..."
