The November Man Interview: Director Roger Donaldson

Posted by philip On August - 25 - 2014 0 Comment

Roger Donaldson is one of the most underrated directors out there. While he’s not a household name, his films certainly are, ranging from ‘No Way Out’, ‘Dante’s Peak’, and ‘Thirteen Days’. One Donaldson’s best strengths is that he never allows himself to get in the way of the movie, but guiding it like a true master. Donaldson is back with ‘The November Man’, reteaming with his ‘Dante’s Peak’ star Pierce Brosnan. I was fortunate enough to sit down with the director to discuss the film, his penchant for political thrillers, and working with Brosnan once again. Political thrillers seem to be your calling in life. Is this your favorite genre?  [ Read More ]

Exclusive: Jason Patric Talks The Prince and More

Jason Patric The Prince

He can be self-destructive, darkly debonair or a lot more dangerous, but Jason Patric is best known for bringing a smoldering intensity to his roles, be it in it something like “The Lost Boys,” “Geronimo: An American Legend,” ”Rush,” “Sleepers” or “Narc,” Joe Carnahan’s 2002 film that reminded people of his talent after a self-imposed four-year hiatus. In his latest movie, director Brian A. Miller’s crime thriller “The Prince,” Patric stars alongside Bruce Willis, John Cusack, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Jessica Lowndes and South Korean pop star-turned-actor Rain, playing a retired crime boss and single father forced to team up with his best friend and go to dark places when his  [ Read More ]

Moebius Movie Review

Posted by bsimon On August - 24 - 2014 0 Comment

Title: Moebius Director: Kim Ki-Duk Starring: Cho Jae-hyun, Seo Young-ju, Lee Eun-woo Castration drama takes a queasy, headlong dive into the literal in South Korean director Kim Ki-Duk’s ”Moebius,” easily the most penis-slicingest film of this year, last year and probably several years to come. A formalist slice of perversity that never coheres into anything more meaningful than a willful piece of cinematic provocation, this controversial, largely wordless psychological thriller is undone by too-thin characterizations and dodgy technique. The characters in ”Moebius” don’t really have names, and are clearly meant to take on a representational quality. A man known simply in the credits as Father (Cho Jae-hyun) has been cheating on Mother (Lee Eun-woo),  [ Read More ]

Interview: Alfred Molina Talks Love Is Strange

A person’s ability to finally have the chance to publicly and legally state their love for the person who’s closest to them, particularly after spending years of fighting civil rights violations and social injustices, can be the most gratifying moment a person ever experiences. But when that long deserved union sets in motion a reversal of fortune that not only affects the couple’s relationship, but also those who are closest to them, what was meant to be one of the happiest moments of their lives can turn into a harrowing event. But British actor Alfred Molina, who contends with this emotional turmoil in his new drama, ‘Love Is Strange,’ which  [ Read More ]

Interview: Ira Sachs Talks Love Is Strange

Striving to find a way to protect a strong emotional bond with someone you truly love can be a stressful situation for everyone involved in the situation. But when you find someone you truly care about, doing whatever it takes to maintain that bond, even if it goes against what’s morally acceptable, often becomes a top priority. That’s certainly the case in director Ira Sach’s new independent drama, “Love Is Strange,” which he co-scribed with his writing partner, Mauricio Zacharias. The independent drama, which is now playing in select theaters, emphasizes that no matter what struggles people are faced with in their lives, having a strong connection and love for  [ Read More ]

New York Film Festival 2014: Stray Dog Gets A New Trailer

Posted by Rudie Obias On August - 23 - 2014 0 Comment

Debra Granik could have gone in any number of directions after the success of Winter’s Bone. She decided to focus on a documentary portrait of Ron “Stray Dog” Hall (who played Thump Milton in the 2010 film), an aging biker and RV park manager from southern Missouri. When we are introduced to Hall and his friends, they appear to be the very image of “middle America” held by New Yorkers: hard-drinking (moonshine, no less), gun-toting, tattooed motorcycle freaks. Slowly, gradually, another image comes into view, of a man who has been permanently altered by his tours of duty in Vietnam, who has come to terms with himself and acquired a  [ Read More ]

Ed2

When seminal documentarian Ed Pincus, considered the father of first person non-fiction film, is diagnosed with a terminal illness, he and collaborator Lucia Small team up to make one last film, much to the chagrin of Jane, Ed’s wife of 50 years. Told from two filmmakers’ points of view, ONE CUT, ONE LIFE challenges the form of first person documentary. Ed and Lucia’s unique approach to filming offers a vulnerability and intimacy rarely seen in non- fiction, questioning whether some things might be too private to be made public. The film is an intense, raw, and sometimes humorous exploration of the human condition which invites the viewer to contemplate for  [ Read More ]
