“There’s not a lot out there, and what is out there has to be really interesting to make me want to leave my life, which is really precious to me. My desire to participate in the business is not to make more crap so I’m really content. I have a desire to create more film, more beauty, more art, more love – but I don’t feel desperate. I mean, for me it’s not about creating or building a career anymore, you know?” -Lilakoi Moon aka Lisa Bonet

“Amreeka,” “Big Fan,” “The Hurt Locker,” “The Maid” and “A Serious Man” were the five films nominees for Best Feature instead of “Precious” at this year’s Gotham Independent Film Awards announced last week. After seeing three of the five noms both “Locker” and “Serious” are legit. The jury is still out on “Fan” and “Amreeka” but “Precious” is the the peer of both “Locker” and “Serious,” and in our humble opinion, superior to “The Maid!”
