West Memphis Three: ‘Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory’ To Premiere On HBO January 12th!

West Memphis Three: ‘Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory’ To Premiere On HBO January 12th!

Premieres On HBO On January 12th

The award-winning HBO documentary series “Paradise Lost: The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills” (1996) and “Paradise Lost 2: Revelations” (2000) spawned a worldwide movement to free the West Memphis 3 for wrongful murder convictions. This film tells the entire story, from the arrests in 1993 to the growing movement, through the entire appeals process and the uncovering of new evidence, concluding with their release. “Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory” premieres on HBO Thursday January 12th, at 9pm!

Check out the official rundown on the show below, a first look at the poster for the documentary and three clips to get you in the know:

The clips include:

“Panel Discussion” – The West Memphis 3 discuss their experiences over the past 18 years

“Directors” – Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky talk about the ‘Paradise Lost’ series

“Lawyers” – Lawyers discuss West Memphis 3 case and its importance

Official Synopsis: Critically acclaimed HBO documentary “Paradise Lost” filmmakers Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky were in court today to witness the stunning conclusion in which, after 18 years in prison, Jason Baldwin, Damien Echols and Jessie Misskelley, known as the West Memphis 3, were set free.

The award-winning HBO documentary series “Paradise Lost: The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills” (1996) and “Paradise Lost 2: Revelations” (2000) spawned a worldwide movement to free the West Memphis 3 for wrongful murder convictions. Set to debut on HBO in Jan. 2012, “Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory” will have its theatrical premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, with a number of prestigious festival dates to follow this fall. This film tells the entire story, from the arrests in 1993 to the growing movement, through the entire appeals process and the uncovering of new evidence, concluding with their release.

As Damien Echols notes in the film, if not for the “Paradise Lost” documentaries, “…these people would have murdered me, swept this under the rug, and I wouldn’t be anything but a memory right now.”

On May 5, 1993, the bodies of three eight-year-old boys were found next to a muddy creek in the wooded Robin Hood Hills area of West Memphis, Ark. A month later, three teenagers, Jason Baldwin, Damien Echols and Jessie Misskelley, were arrested, accused and convicted of brutally raping, mutilating and killing the boys. Fraught with innuendoes of devil worship, allegations of coerced confessions and emotionally charged statements, the case was one of the most sensational in state history. The films sparked a national debate regarding the innocence or guilt of the West Memphis 3. With the support of HBO, the filmmakers have stuck with the story over an 18-year period, making these compelling films in order to continue to shed light, raise awareness and spur debate about the events that transpired at that time and in subsequent years after the convictions.

“Eighteen years and three films ago, we started this journey to document the terrible murders of three innocent boys and the subsequent circus that followed thearrests and convictions of Baldwin, Echols and Misskelley,” said director and producer Joe Berlinger. “To see our work culminate in the righting of this tragic miscarriage of justice is more than a filmmaker could ask for.”

Added co-director Bruce Sinofsky, “Today, we, along with HBO, are humbled to bea part of this remarkable outcome.” Premiering at the 1996 Sundance Film Festival, “Paradise Lost: The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills” went on to win many accolades after its HBO presentation, receiving Emmy® and Peabody Awards, and a DGA nomination, among other honors, and was named Best Documentary by the National Board of Review. “Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory” is directed and produced by Joe Berlinger; codirected and produced by Bruce Sinofsky; edited by Alyse Ardell Spiegel; director of photography, Bob Richman; producer/second unit director; Jonathan Silberberg; featuring songs by Metallica. For HBO: supervising producer, Nancy Abraham; executive producer, Sheila Nevins.

Review:  “Off The Boulevard” – A Behind-The-Scenes Look At The Entertainment Industry

Review: “Off The Boulevard” – A Behind-The-Scenes Look At The Entertainment Industry

The documentary “Off The Boulevard” gives a behind-the-scenes look of the entertainment industry. Seven independent artists share their struggles, failures and accomplishments while dedicating themselves to the pursuit of their artistic dreams.

Musicians Keith Jackson and Nick Nicholson, filmmakers Troy Duffy and Jeff Santo, actors David Della Rocco and Sanel Budimlic, and stand-up comedian Bob Rubin share their journeys while struggling and persevering on the path of independence. The documentary also includes insights from industry stars, including Peter Fonda (“Easy Rider” and “Ulee’s Gold”), Joe Mantegna (“Criminal Minds”), Gilby Clarke (Guns ‘N’ Roses), Sonny Barger (Hell’s Angels), Dan Haggerty (“Grizzly Adams”), and Eddie Vedder (Pearl Jam).

Let’s get the nit-picky technical out of the way — which, overall, consisted of a few minor problems. The film was clumsy in parts, especially when the camera lens peered through a car windshield and, in another part, an airplane window. I was trying to listen to the narrator but couldn’t help but notice a bird pooped on the windshield. A few times the camera was out of focus, sometimes it was not centered. There were a couple instances with audio problems but, as Tripper said in “Meatballs,” it just doesn’t matter!

I soon forgot about these technicalities because it’s not about cinemotography, it’s about the meat of the film — the story. It took me a little ways (about 20 minutes or so) to become fully on board but when I did, I was rockin’ and rollin’ and felt a part of the conversation. It’s like meeting someone new — give the person a chance before passing judgement because if they turn out to be cool — or even awesome — it was worth the time.

That’s what happened with “Off The Boulevard.” I kept watching and soon became engrossed with these men, from the well-known Duffy of “Boondock Saints” fame to the lesser known Budimlic of “Jake’s Corner,” who although not mainstream yet has a powerful and moving story to share, a story he shares with modesty (hint hint … nudge nudge … Budimlic and Santo are working on “Made in Bosna.” Google it.).

I love the laid-back aspect of “Off The Boulevard” because these men share personal and difficult aspects of their lives — from Budimlic fleeing the Bosnian/Serbian war and living in a refugee camp for 7 months before coming to the U.S. to Duffy fighting to get paid for the first “Boondock Saints” (which grossed $150 million). I felt like I was sitting in the room while they discussed their hopes, dreams and failures.

I became engrossed. How could I not?

This movie has heart: from Budimlic first learning to act when soldiers frequented his home during the Bosnian/Serbian war to loot, forcing him to act like this was fine so he could stay alive — “We don’t need this anymore! Go right ahead!” — to a peek at Santo’s documentary “This Old Cub” where his father, famed baseball great Ron Santo, silently puts on his prosthetic legs after losing the limbs to diabetes (I did not just tear up, I cried).

This movie has humor: how could it not with in-your-face Bob “The Rube” Rubin, who’s philosophy is if you don’t get my jokes then go f- yourself?

This movie has anger: Duffy fighting tooth-and-nail to get his cult classic “Boondock Saints” filmed only to later fight even harder to get payment for himself, his producers and the principal cast. Duffy also fought — and stills continues to fight — against the stereotypes about his character expressed in the documentary “Overnight,” which left viewers with the image of Duffy as extremely arrogant and prone to explosive outbursts.

Above all, “Off the Boulevard” is about dedication to achieving your dreams, which all these men share, especially Nicholson, a country singer and military veteran who perseveres through bad gigs and managers until, finally, his sweet tunes hit the right ears and his hit-song is played on the radio! Yes, money would be nice. Fame? Of course! But with true artists, it’s about a dream they are drawn to with a mystical urgency. These men don’t sing, write, act or direct simply because they want to, they do it because they have to.

The film is like Dr. Seuss’s “The Places You’ll Go” for adult independent artists, which is ironic because Santo teaches at a film school. Save yourself a class fee and check this movie out for well-knowns and not-so-well-knowns sharing the reality behind the curtain of Hollywood — red carpets, paparazzi, corporate, oh my!

This reality is also conveyed through honest words-of-wisdom delivered by men who have been there, are still there, and know. Jackson (“The Glass Heroes”) sharing, “I don’t want anyone to tell me what’s good or bad, I’m gonna figure that out on my own.” Della Rocco (“The Boondock Saints”) commenting, “There’s only a few of us that can live this life.” Duffy remembering, “Sometimes you (Santo) and I will be sitting there crying into our beers, looking at each other, and then we’ll both start fucking laughing because it’s ridiculous. Kids don’t know how bad this can get.”

If you’re a dreamer — isn’t everyone, more or less? — if you’re an aspiring filmmaker, actor or musician, or if you’re like me and simply enjoy an inside look at the human spirit and seeing celebrities unveiled as everyday human beings, watch this film.

“Every artist must take a risk. With that risk everything becomes uncertain, the destiny you hope for, the destination you move towards, all is uncertain. When you are in these waters of uncertainty, the rules for every artist is to hold tight to one living thing and one living thing only: Your Dream. It’s that life that survives.”

“Off the Boulevard” is directed by Jeff Santo and written by Santo and Christie Collins. For details, check out www.santofilms.com. — Kate Vendetta

Pearl Jam – ‘Pearl Jam’ – CD Review

Pearl Jam – ‘Pearl Jam’ – CD Review

pearl_jam_cdBy JEN X

I hate to use a term like ?comeback album? for a band that never really left the music scene. However, Pearl Jam’s eighth album, which is untitled (but becoming known as the ?Avocado? album), may be the one that brings back the casual fan and thrusts them into the spotlight that they have shied away from for so long. Pearl Jam shunned endorsements, interviews and videos in the age of MTV. Despite being considered out of the ?mainstream,? they managed to stay relevant to fans, selling out major arenas around the country and moving millions of records and official concert bootlegs. This was due to their live show. Every concert promises to be something different, with set lists varied nightly, rarities and covers of their rock idols, as well as encores that are longer than most bands? main sets. This album is their debut release with J Records and is their first full-length studio release in four years.

The band is now doing interviews, making appearances on Letterman and SNL, and giving themselves the credit that is long overdue. And if ?Worldwide Suicide? is any indication, the rest of the world will be giving them credit, too. The first single debuted at number one on Billboard?s modern rock chart.

The album starts with the powerful one-two-three punch of ?Life Wasted,? ?WWS? and ?Comatose.? The first track features the battling guitars of Stone Gossard and Mike McCready, mixed with Eddie Vedder?s primal intensity on vocals. The lyrics show the maturity that has come with age and experience. Vedder seems to mock his younger, angrier self that spurned a fame that was built on angst: ?Darkness comes in waves/Tell me, why invite it to stay?/You?’re one with negativity/Yes, comfort is an energy/But why let the sad song play.? The video for ?Life Wasted? came out in May of 2006 and was the band?s first official video since 1998?s ?Do the Evolution.? ?Worldwide Suicide? is Pearl Jam at its best, with an immediate hook, driving rhythm section and lyrical imagery of the effects of war. ?Comatose? has a raw, punk-rock energy and is awesome performed live. With a McCready solo that borders on metal and Vedder?s style of singing through clenched teeth for which he is famous, it is hard to sit still while listening to this song.

Seeing the band perform ?Severed Hand? on SNL opened my eyes to the greatness of this song. So much happens before the first words are even sung, building to a trademark Pearl Jam crescendo. The anticipation begins with a light, airy sound before the drums and more guitars kick in for a second bridge. A third bridge takes it into an aggressive, pounding rhythm. When the words finally start, Vedder sounds a bit demented. When he asks, ?Want to take a ride?,? you can’t help but yell “YEAH!” with him.

The slow, emotion-drenched ?Come Back? has the aching, epic feel of ?Nothingman? from the band?s album Vitalogy. Vedder is amazing in that he can still evoke the kind of raw believable pain with his voice now that he?s at such a happy place in his personal life.

As much as ?Comatose? is a nod to their punk influence, the acoustic ?Parachutes? has an instantly recognizable Beatles influence. With Gossard and McCready?s carefree strumming, you can?t help but be happy when you hear this song. ?Gone,? the other slow track on the album, again showcases Vedder?s storytelling ability as he sings from the viewpoint of a man leaving the lights of the city behind.

The rest of the songs on the album continue to use great melodies and socially-timed lyrics with a softer but more powerful approach to address the problems of today?s society. ?Marker in the Sand? has a mix of good riffs, an infectiously catchy melody and lyrics that paint the picture of someone looking to God for guidance in this messed up world. ?Unemployable? is the story of a working-class man who just got laid off; the story opens as he dents his ?JESUS SAVES? ring when he punched his metal locker. ?Army Reserve,? with music written by bassist Jeff Ament, tells the story of a mother and child left behind while father is at war. An interesting note is that Damien Echols shares writing credits with Vedder on this song. Echols is on death row and has been making headlines for years due to the controversy surrounding the ?West Memphis Three,? who are well known to many metal fans. Pearl Jam, and specifically Vedder, have played a tremendous part in bringing this case to light by supporting Echols and the other two men who have been imprisoned (www.wm3.org).

?Inside Job? closes the album and is the first song to use McCready’s lyrics, causing you to wonder why he wasn?t writing songs earlier. The song, which exceeds seven minutes, starts off light and builds to a quicker tempo that matches the optimism of the lyrics.

Those who pre-ordered the album on Pearl Jam’s official website received a version of the album with different CD art and packaging than the retail version. Instead of the retail digipack packaging, the fan club pre-order resembles a book and has the liner notes bound inside it. In addition, a live CD of the band’s show on December 31, 1992 at The Academy in New York City also was included with the pre-order.

While Pearl Jam has continued to rock for the last 10 years with socially-charged songs, they return to their edgier, more aggressive roots with this venture. The band finally captures the energy that their live shows are famous for, and there is a sense of optimism that was lacking on the last two albums. To the fans that think that Vitalogy is the last album Pearl Jam made, I have this to say: Buy their self-titled CD today and welcome back.

THE VERDICT: 5/5
