Synopsis

Seductive, fearless, and outrageous, Marina Abramovic has been redefining what art is for nearly forty years. Using her own body as a vehicle, pushing herself beyond her physical and mental limits--and at times risking her life in the process--she creates performances that challenge, shock, and move us. Through her and with her, boundaries are crossed, consciousness expanded, and art as we know it is reborn. She is, quite simply, one of the most compelling artists of our time.

Awards Season: Silver Linings for Limited Releases

November 28th, 2012

The Independent Spirit Awards has a special place in the Awards Season. The nominations are the unoffficial start of Awards Season, but the actual awards aren't given out until Oscar weekend, so they are the beginning at the end of Awards Season. They also help out a lot of limited releases that would otherwise not get enough buzz, although they are not so good at predicting Oscar wins. This year, two films tied for most nominations, Moonrise Kingdom and The Silver Linings Playbook, both of which earned five nominations. They weren't the only films to earn multiple nominations though. More...

Per Theater Chart: Waning Moon

June 19th, 2012

Moonrise Kingdom has been on the top of the per theater chart for close to a month now. The past weekend it managed an average of $12,571 in nearly 200 theaters. Unfortunately for the box office as a whole, it was the only film to reach the $10,000 market. Your Sister's Sister did come close with an average of $8,402 in thirteen theaters, which is good enough to suggest some potential to expand. More...

Your Limited Limited Releases

June 15th, 2012

Usually the opening week theater counts for limited releases start to trickle in on Wednesday and by Thursday we have quite a few to report. A few more arrive late on Friday, while annoyingly, some are not reported till Monday. This week, we only have one limited release reporting its theater count. That film is Your Sister's Sister, which is earning great reviews and equally good buzz, so there should be at least one hit in limited release this week. The Woman in the Fifth also has a shot at success. Its reviews are not as good, but it has a strong cast and that might make the difference. More...
