Animator Timothy Reckart just made his graduate film, Head Over Heels, viewable online for the first time. A few extras like director’s commentary are included. Head Over Heels, one of the few student films to get nominated for an Oscar, is a story of an upside down relationship. Literally. One person lives on the floor and the other lives on the ceiling.

Control is lost and time becomes an abstraction when Mike Aho draws us into the short film The Lonely Life, which he wrote, directed and scored. He can be credited with almost every aspect of the film. (That, on top of being the new creative director at Volcom, and leading the band ((sounder)).) It stars musician and actor Will Oldham, whose character had been cryogenically frozen and is searching to understand his former life. Dazed in the intense haze of medication, lies and hallucinations, the film follows this search for truth amidst a cloak of certain evil.

With Tim Burton's "Big Eyes" now in theaters nationwide, we thought we would share our interview with him and the screenwriters of the film from our December, 2014 issue. "Tim Burton wrote his poem The Girl With Many Eyes years before screenwriters Scott Alexander and Larry Karazewski approached him about Margaret Keane’s story, which has all the Shakespearean elements of history, tragedy and comedy.

Director Richard Linklater's film "Boyhood" was this editor's favorite film of the year, and I don't think I need to make a huge defense of this position. It was a coming-of-age film that actually was shot in-real-time so much as the filming took place across the actual 12 years worth of actor Ellar Coltrane's life.

Juxtapoz Presents: Gone Again is a visual tour of the elaboratelydecorated surroundings of the legendary art and music collector Long Gone John. Filmed at his estate in the upper woods of Olympia, WA, this short film is a fantastical journey through the maze of John’s aesthetic mind and personal obsessions. John’s spare, singular narration gives voice to an interior monologue set against the backdrop of an optical nirvana. The Treasures of Long Gone John celebrates its 10 year anniversary.
