Review: 'Trust Me' With Clark Gregg As Another Kind of Agent

Submitted by melissa on June 7, 2014 - 1:35pm


 

You probably know Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson from Iron Man, The Avengers and NBC Marvel's Agents of Shield, but in Trust Me, he's Hollywood Agent, Howard Holloway. He stars, as well as writes and directs Trust Me, his second feature to direct, the first being Choke, the Chuck Palahniuk book-adapted film starring Sam Rockwell.

I saw this movie at last year's Tribeca Film Festival, and to be honest, I hated it. However, I decided to watch again for it's release and my reaction completely changed. Why?

Well, this is a story about a struggling Hollywood agent who lies, cheats, deceives and all without batting an eye. What's more is that it's completely acceptable in his profession. It was for this reason that I didn't like the movie the first time around, but after a re-watch, I saw more. I saw fantastic acting and a clever script.

TRUST ME, is now on demand as well as iTunes, Amazon, PS3, Xbox and other platforms. Released theatrically on June 6th in cities across the US.

Interview: Cyber Seniors Director Saffron Cassaday - Presented by Girls on Film

Cyber-Seniors is a new documentary from first time director, Saffron Cassaday. Inspired by her grandparents, Cassaday’s sisters launched a program to teach retired seniors how to connect to the web. A group of young volunteers share their knowledge with quite a cast of characters, lead by Shura, an 88 year old retiree who thought it would be impossible to learn how to get online. Once she discovers YouTube, she creates a cooking video that garners quite a bit of attention. This inspires other residents and sparks a bit of friendly competition. Hilarity ensues, of course, but the heart of this documentary is in the cultivated relationships between the seniors and their young mentors.

Don't miss the Q&A at the 7pm showing at Cinema Village in NYC!

We were fortunate enough to be able to sit down with Saffron Cassaday to learn a little more about the documentary.
