Aaron Sorkin intends to do his Steve Jobs biopic in exactly three, 30-minute scenes, and a bunch of Disney stars go x-rated with James Franco in the latest teen porn trashcore offering from questionable genius Harmony Korine.

As a production designer, Sir Ken Adam consistently pushed his imagination to the limits, creating movie sets, each different, as thrilling to look at as the action unfolding up on the screen. His work on seven James Bond films—including the first of the series, Dr. No—set the tone for what became the Bond franchise. His vision behind the war-room in Dr. Strangelove, the interior of Fort Knox in Goldfinger, the flying car in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, and Blofeld's lair in a volcano’s crater in You Only Live Twice, are just a few examples of the heightened sense of reality Adam so deftly created in his 50-year-career, making him the film industry’s first production designer to reflect the rapidly advancing electronic age of the 1960s and beyond.

AFI Fest concludes this evening with a gala screening of Lincoln at the Grauman. But since I can't go (we're delivering the Complete Guide to Making Movies to the printer tonight), I'll pretend like it ended last night. My girlfriend and I managed to attend nine events—eight films and a panel—over the course of the seven-day festival: Amour; Rust and Bone; Clip; Caesar Must Die; Starlet; Beyond the Hills; Leviathan; Antiviral; and the Young Hollywood talk. This means, of course, that I missed the lions share of the films on the slate this year (there were 128, by the way), but what I did see was so consistently innovative that I feel watching any block of films at AFI is tantamount to polling: You might not get everyone's opinion, but as long as your sample size is big enough, you can extend your limited observations to the whole. Assessment of this year's program: brilliant. I don't say that lightly, so I'll repeat it. Brilliant.

When you first watch Red Flag, a new dark comedy from HBO “GIRLS” star and independent director Alex Karpovsky, it feels a little autobiographical—especially since the character Alex plays in the film is literally, well, Alex Karpovsky. Red Flag is the story of Alex, a solipsistic filmmaker that takes his independent film Woodpecker (a real film Alex made) on tour.

AFI Fest starts Thursday November 1st at everyone's favorite LA confluence of tourism and indigence: Hollywood and Highland. And for the next week, at the Chinese Theater and the Egyptian, you can see a round-up of the best films 2012 has to offer—big and small, foreign and domestic—entirely for free thanks to Audi (the Germans are subsidizing everyone these days). From Steven Spielberg's Lincoln; to Jacques Audiard's MMA/killer whale movieRust and Bone; to Sean Baker's pornstar-with-a-heart mini-masterpiece, Starlet, the 2012 slate is as diverse and exciting as it was last year. That's why MovieMaker sat down with AFI Festival Director Jacqueline Lyanga to talk about this season's program, and why you have to go.
