River Phoenix is Back From the Dead
Jan 21 2013
Earlier this year, VICE Films and Grolsch Film Works teamed up with the directors Harmony Korine, Alexey Fedorchenko and Jan Kwiecinski to make a three-part film called The Fourth Dimension. Now, Grolsch Film Works have a new website where you can find out what they’ve been up to and read/watch interesting stuff about films. Every week we'll be plucking the highlights. This is that.
RIVER PHOENIX'S FINAL FILM TO BE RELEASED
Twenty years after the young actor's tragic death, River Phoenix's last project has finally been completed. Dark Blood, directed by George Sluizer, was only 80% complete when Phoenix fatally overdosed in 1993, missing the interior shots that had been planned for an L.A. soundstage. While the initial judgement of the studios deemed the film impossible to complete as the missing scenes were deemed simply too vital, Sluizer held onto the film footage and has now made the decision to release the film, supported by his own narration to cover the missing scenes. However, it's worth noting this film does not seem to have any support from the Phoenix family, and his brother Joaquin has denied speculation he would be dubbing River's voice.

TOP 10: CRY FACES
I've yet to see Les Miserables, but I've been told it contains a lot of scenes of sad people. Specifically sad people crying. One of those people is Anne Hathaway, who is so talented at crying with her face that she's already won a Golden Globe for it (with an Oscar likely on its way). Therefore, in celebration of the film's release and Hathaway's awards circuit victories, here's 10 other people whose cry-faces are simply spectacular to behold.
