Gravity
On this week's Voice Film Club podcast, the Village Voice's Alan Scherstuhl and Stephanie Zacharek both praise Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity (starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock), saying the director exhibits a "lovely human touch" with film, which is set in space, and that it's "so different than anything else he's made." The film opens this Friday.

Also, we get a report on Austin's Fantastic Fest from L.A. Weekly's Amy Nicholson, which is put on by the Alamo Draft House's Tim League. It's a festival all about "drunkenness, tattoos and action," says Nicholson, who adds that movies like Japan's Kid's Police and Bollywood's Commando were stand-outs.

Plus! Recommendations for drug war documentary Narco Cultura, Malaysian Viking movie Vikingdom, and an endorsement of La-La Land Records' extensive stock of movie soundtracks, including a limited edition release of 1969's True Grit.

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
