Joshua Tree 1951: A Portrait of James Dean
Be prepared to swoon. Shot in glorious black-and-white, this might be Outfest 2012’s most ravishing film (special kudos to cinematographer Michael Marius Pessah). This look at an early period in the life of the late screen icon is also one of the most compelling films in this year’s lineup, but don’t confuse it with the 2001 telefilm that helped launch James Franco’s career. "I think audiences should know that our film has very little in common with any other film that has ever been made about James Dean,” says director Matthew Mishory. “It is not a biopic or even a conventional, by-the-numbers biographical movie in form or structure. JT1951 is a portrait, a moment in, or perhaps outside of, time. James Dean was not a conventional movie star, and we didn't want to make a conventional movie about him. The language of our film is not the language of conventional Hollywood filmmaking; it is the language of memories and dreams. That is how James Dean lives on: in our collective cinematic memory and in our celluloid dreams.” July 16, 9:45 p.m., DGA.
