Movie Meltdown: A Taste of Most Beautiful Island
This week we return to the Flyover Film Fest for their Taste of Flyover festivities. Plus we sit down with Ana Asensio, the writer, director and star of Most Beautiful Island (winner of Grand Jury Award at South by Southwest this year). We also recap the night where we ate food from Chef Edward Lee’s recipes as well as saw Peter Byck’s One Hundred Thousand Beating Hearts and Fermented directed by Jonathan Cianfrani. As well as our thoughts on recent viewings of War for the Planet of the Apes and Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.
And while we watch movies while eating chicken and waffles, we also we also discuss… John Cassavetes, Dekalog, kimchi on a deviled egg, truthful filmmaking, it’s anthropological is what it is, meatloaf balls, living the life he wants to live, Krzysztof Kieslowski, telling interesting stories along the way, studying films that I love, Noah Greenberg, edamame, Matt Reeves, cheese and bacteria, there were mistakes being done, Luc Besson, doing kickflips and eatin’ pickles, a very ethnographic perspective, shot in a guerrilla style, Cara Delevingne, please quit eating this hot dog, knocking on doors, I believe you used the word barbarians, people and culture, I had some strong visions on how I wanted to shoot this film, handheld and voyeuristic, movie theater nachos, interesting color schemes, John Carter of Mars, feeding my soul, that was kind of like a dream… and a vision… and a struggle at the same time, the kneading of the dough, I don’t want to give up… because this is my true passion, I’m relatively sophisticated, Dane DeHaan, an Amazon Prime wormhole straight to your door, embracing improvisation and… I’m fermenting!
“…I knew that the way I was… watching the films were beyond just a regular audience or just an actor looking at the performances… it was affecting me in a greater deeper level.”
