HEY HEY HEY,
Much abuzz at the labs as of late, but we thought it important to take a minute to update you all about recent O-Scope happenings.
I.) IT’S A DISASTER Now Available on Demand and Digital!
Following our hyper-experimental pre-pre-release on Vine a few weeks back (for which I was sent on two weeks’ paid leave because it was too hyper-experimental), we’ve released our brand new, piping hot Apocalyptic comedy IT’S A DISASTER on demand and digital before it hits theaters.
We’ll be releasing the film in theaters across the country Friday, April 12th (and there’ll be a bunch of fun cast & crew Q&As and appearances, so stay tuned to the film’s Facebook and Twitter), you can catch the movie on your on demand & digital platforms like iTunes.
II.) Matteo Garrone’s REALITY hits theaters March 15th
REALITY, the new film by the incredible Italian auteur Matteo Garrone (who directed the critically-acclaimed crime drama GOMORRAH in 2008), is coming to theaters this month.
It’s the story of a charming and humble fishmonger (yes, a fishmonger) in Naples who becomes fixated on being a contestant on the reality show “Big Brother” (yes, that Big Brother!), leading him down a rabbit hole of skewed perceptions and paranoia. So far, critics have drawn comparisons to Fellini, Buñuel, and Scorsese’s “The King of Comedy” (one of our all-time faves) and Garrone himself describes the film as a “dark fairytale.”

III.) WELCOME TO PINE HILL Continues in NYC
In other O-Scope theatrical news, we just opened Keith Miller’s Slamdance-winning film WELCOME TO PINE HILL at the IFC Center here in Manhattan to a nearly sold-out weekend. The film will continue through this week and then on select showtimes next week, so catch it while you can!

IV.) That goat we promised…
We love short films at O-Scope. Some shorts are bite-size stories you can’t forget, and we loved this two-minute beauty (the best two-minute film!) at the recent True/False Film Festival…
So without further ado, here’s TINA DELIVERS A GOAT:
Director Joe Callander said, “The problem with short films is, they’re too long.”
We really look forward to Joe’s next film, TINA’S EX HUSBAND FALLS OFF A ZIPLINE. We hear it’s pretty riveting.
Forever yours (and anyone else who will have me),
