First Look: Marley Shelton in Jonathan Parker's Untitled
The reason why (Untitled) is, well, untitled, is because it's a comic satire on the state of contemporary art. Aauteur Jonathan Parker (of Bartleby and The Californians previously) presents this story about a fashionable contemporary art gallerist (played by Marley Shelton) in Chelsea, New York who falls for a brooding music composer (played by Adam Goldberg). This quietly got its world premiere at the Palm Springs International Film Festival in January, and thanks to Hollywood Elsewhere (via The Playlist), we've got a first look at Shelton and Goldberg in the film. I definitely encourage indie enthusiasts to take a look.
Jeffrey Wells saw (Untitled) in Palm Springs in January, and while he didn't love it, he did say: "It's vaguely Woody Allen-esque but without the schtick… And I enjoyed staring at Marley Shelton, whom I hadn't paid very much attention to before… Call this a modest breakthrough performance."
Anytime a sexy photo like that one just above shows up, I've instantly got to find out more. That stunning beauty you see above is Marley Shelton, who hasn't been in much recently besides starring as Rachel Young on "Eleventh Hour" and appearing in Robert Rodriguez's Planet Terror. In fact, based on Wells' review and these photos, I'm interested in checking out (Untitled) in the hopes of becoming an even bigger fan of Shelton, or, a fan of her at all since I'm not akin to much of her older work. Hopefully (Untitled) makes its way to LA or some other film festival in the near future. It doesn't have a distributor as of this moment.
