Very true, none of

this Hollywood,

romantic comedy

bullshit.

Some great shots!

None of this Hollywood romantic comedy bullshit.

Love it. SO PROUD.

Reminiscent of Eraserhead and Brick, Richard Ayoade’s The Double is a fantastically envisioned and very original film with a top notch sound design. Definitely recommend folks in Vancouver check it out while it’s at Vancity Theatre.

Desiree Akhavan talks about her fantastic, hilarious, and incisive debut feature Appropriate Behavior. Definitely my favourite from this year’s Queer Film Festival.

Thank you—

Canada— and

Canadians?

Do have a certain way of expressing their emotions— as

you have shown—

it can be debilitating!

I travelled 9500km across Canada to screen my feature film to more than 500 people over nine screenings in five cities. Thanks so much to all my wonderful collaborators, my friends and family who supported and loved me along the way, my peers who encouraged me and offered their guidance, the press who were friendly, the audience who were open to the experience, and to everyone who related and understood what I had to share and why it was important to me.

If you missed your chance to see it theatrically, send me an email and I’ll send you an online screener. I just want to chat with more people about the movie.

Title: Bicycle Tricycle Artist: Rosie Thomas 10 plays

Bicycle tricycle take me far with
My hands on your handlebars. I can’t
Be homecoming queen for every boy 
That falls in and out of love with me.


I won’t look back
I’ve been here before
I’ve been here before
I’ll turn my back
Whatever it takes to let him go


Flower dress strawberry red
I must confess you’re my safety pin
Hold me together hide me well
So he cannot tell the state that I am in


I won’t look back
I’ve been here before
I’ve been here before
I’ll turn my back
Whatever it takes to let him go


Roller skates figure eights
Roll me away and I won’t complain
I’ll bring my raincoat boots and umbrella
So he can’t ever rain on my parade

Title: Interview with Brendan Artist: Sara Lapsley 84 plays

spacesfilm:

Brendan recaps the Spaces and Reservations cross Canada screening tour and talks about fidelity and monogamy and other relationship concepts on The Arts Report on CiTR 101.9fm with Sara Lapsley.

Heart on my sleeve, as always.

Title: Strings That Tie to You Artist: Jon Brion 73 plays

From the wrinkles on my forehead
To the mud upon my shoe 
Everything’s a memory
With strings that tie to you

In my dream I’m often running
To the place that’s out of you
Of every kind of memory
With strings that tie to you

Though a change has taken place 
And I no longer do adore her
Still every God forsaken place is always 
Right around the corner

Now I know it’s either them or me
So I’ll bury every clue
And every kind of memory
With strings that tie to you

And every kind of memory
With strings that tie to you

This movie is so full of penetrating, well articulated insights even the fucking soundtrack is ingenious. 

Nicholas Sparks’ don’t got shit on Spaces and Reservations.
