Hey, remember the Oscars? They happened last year? They might get cancelled? Sometimes women win them by pretending to be ugly, even if they aren’t ugly, and sometimes if they are?

Film Review: “Bella” and its previews

Bwog’s resident film aficionado Learned Foote talks about the new film Bella and also includes mini-reviews of previews! Who says you can’t judge a movie by its trailer?

NYFF’s Leading Man (Part 2 of 2)

The thrilling conclusion of Bwogger Christian Kamongi’s interview with NYFF head and Columbia professor Richard Pena.

Three degrees of Wes Anderson

In which Bwog newbie Thomas Rhiel ascends to the height of filmmaker fandom. Critics seem to have lost much of their patience with Wes Anderson (He’s elitist! Self-important! Maybe even racist!), but I admit it: I can’t get enough. I want my characters quirky, forlorn, and constantly smoking. I want my frames symmetrical and colorful, […]

(blue) Lights!

Sophomores Mike Molina and Rob Stenson (the kids who brought you this hilarity), along with Jeff Schwartz, are launching a crusade for as-yet-largely-nonexistent independent film at Columbia. It’s called Project Bluelight, modeled off the real-life Project Greenlight, which makes movies happen from storyboard to screening. Bwog interrogated them last night via e-mail. Do you have […]

In which Learned Foote, one of those delightfully over-eager first years (and a legit film reviewer), muses on Nicole Kidman’s latest risky venture.

ROFLMAO SXSW

South by Southwest (SXSW), the annual film and music festival in Austin, Texas, ends today—and BW culture editor Paul Barndt got himself a press pass (see, bwogging has its benefits).
