Sragow Profiles Local and Nation Oscar Noms

Nice piece by Michael Sragow in Wednesday’s Sun exploring some local links to the recent Oscar nominees

Sragow,  one of the best film writers in the country, explores one of the documentary short nominees, MUSIC BY PRUDENCE, produced and co-edited by MICA’s Patrick Wright. Patrick’s been such a great partner with us on the film series’ we’ve done at MICA, often including special sessions in the classroom with the students and visiting filmmakers. He’s put together a pretty great film program for MICA students. I haven’t seen his finished film, but early scenes I saw were unbelievable, and it’s been fun watching the project grow. MICA has been supportive from the beginning. I don’t know any of the other nominees, but I hope this one wins.

No news flash: Jeff Bridges is going to win the Oscar for Best Actor. It will act as a Lifetime Achievement Award and, on that basis, is richly deserved. If you want to see him deliver a really fresh performance of a man struggling with self-destructive impulses, rent AMERICAN HEART. Bridges plays a reluctant father to Edward Furlong (discovered by Jim Cameron for TERMINATOR), and he’s just great.
