KINO! Reboots Bringing German Talent to New York (June 12-19)
Including Theatrical Release NAN GOLDIN - I REMEMBER YOUR FACE
Stay tuned for my coverage!
We trust what we see with our eyes. They are our tool to navigate through the world. What happens when your eyes deceive you? In Jane Weinstock’s The Moment, an international photojournalist Lee (Jennifer Jason Leigh) begins an affair with a writer she meets in a rehab center. John (Martin Henderson) has a rough past and after they break up, John mysteriously vanishes. This pushes Lee’s fragile psyche over the edge. Her ex-husband and daughter (Alia Shawkat) admit her to get help. In sessions with her therapist (Marianne Jean-Baptiste) Lee begins to have flashes of what may or may not be memories of the the night before John went missing. Can she trust herself? The film jumps in time and the audience is left with a labyrinthine puzzle to piece together. Jennifer is haunting in her quiet reflection. The photography in the movie is stunning and personal.
I was able to sit down with Jane and discuss the movie. Here are the top 10 highlights from my interview.

"A small fishing village must secure a lucrative business contract to escape a financial slump. Their odds are slim as a town doctor is needed to land the contract and they’ve been searching for years. After the mayor skips town, resident Murray French (Brendan Gleeson) takes it upon himself to find his village a doctor. When unlikely candidate and big city doctor Paul Lewis (Taylor Kitsch) lands in their lap, the townsfolk rally together to seduce him into staying beyond his one month trial. The ever creative Murray deploys varying ranges of subterfuge. He taps Paul’s phone, fabricates a love interest, and forces the entire village to learn how to play cricket, Paul’s favorite sport. As the month grows, so too does Paul’s fondness for the village, clueless that everything he loves is an elaborate scheme. With the decision for the contract looming, Murray’s grand seduction faces collapse from both guilt and revelation, potentially crushing both the dreams of the small village and the hope of a young doctor."

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.
