The vintage nastiness of the exploitative cult classic Mark of the Devil gets a pristine revamp from Arrow Video, a favored title from a golden era of new wave British horror that hasn’t had held quite the same reverence as some of the more notable titles of the era, such as Ken Russell’s The Devils, Robin Hardy’s The Wicker Man or Michael Reeves’ Witchfinder General. The project was inspired by Reeves’ film, who died of an accidental overdose at the age of 25. In hindsight, perhaps, as directed by Michael Armstrong (the film’s screenwriter who often wrote under the pseudonym Sergio Casstner), the title is a bit too familiar in to Reeves, and often feels like the slutty little cousin to the sleazy themes touched upon in the earlier film. Bizarre performances and an unnaturally evocative ambience help overcome the film’s desperate aim to shock with »

If there’s one thing I’ll never understand it’s the American obsession with the rapture. Over the past couple of years we’ve seen a ton of TV shows and movies centered around the biblical event and most – like The Remaining – are, frankly, terrible. From the gloriously over the top Nicolas Cage film Left Behind, to the completely unfunny (and a waste of the talents involved) Rapture-Palooza, it seems the mix of religious themes and current Hollywood film making do not gel. Then again maybe it’s because, despite a belief in a higher power, I’m not the target market for films of this nature – after all, most rapture-themed films play on inherent fears found in religion. »

Director: Paul Schrader
Running time: 94 minutes
Paul Schrader, a product of the movie brat generation, here offers up a fragmented feature starring Nicolas Cage but on this occasion it’s hard to pin all the blame on Schrader, taking on the role of writer and director, if the rumoured battle with producers are true.
Dying Of The Light follows the story of a career CIA operative Evan Lake (Nicolas Cage), dealing with a devastating illness that threatens to end his career , whilst on a relentless pursuit of a terrorist who once imprisoned and tortured him but it’s uninspiring, boring and overplayed after much promise. Paul Schrader is a talented writer/ director behind such classics as Taxi Driver and Raging Bull, alongside a credible cast featuring the likes of Nicolas Cage and Anton Yelchin but the finished product is a jumbled mess. »

The story follows Snowden (Gordon-Levitt) as he moves from Hawaii to Hong Kong where he met documentary filmmaker Laura Poitras (director of the Oscar-winning Citizenfour) and journalist Glenn Greenwald to hand over top-secret Nsa documents, all before seeking asylum in Russia. "Snowden" is currently in production and co-stars Nicolas Cage, Shailene Woodley and Zachary Quinto. It's set to hit theaters on December 25th. Photos: (click to enlarge) »

Oliver Stone last week started production on his biopic of Edward Snowden, the sometime CIA systems admin who leaked information to the press and revealed just how much American intelligence agencies were spying on… well, on everyone really. The star of this film is Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and the production today released two images of him in the role.
Well, he looks enough like him that it doesn’t matter, and Gordon-Levitt is a fine actor so I have no worries about his ability to carry off the role.
Oliver Stone on the other hand… well, his films are rather scatter shot, to put it politely. I don’t know if he’s got the discipline and focus to nail a story like this and all of its relevance and resonances. He seems happier making cameras whizz around while neon lights flicker on and off and race horses breathe fire. »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
"The Fault in Our Stars" and "Divergent" star Ansel Elgort was on "The Tonight Show" Tuesday night, and he shared the story of a recent party he went to with his "ridiculous" mother, who has no idea who any celebrities are. They ran into Bruce Willis and his mom had no idea who he was, so she just said, "Hi, what's your name? What do you do?" When Bruce said he was an actor, Ansel's mom said, "Oh my son is an actor. How's that going for you?" In classic Bruce fashion, he just replied, "It's going pretty good." Haha. Good for Ansel's mom - it's about time someone »

One movie that didn't make our main slate of Premature 2016 Best Picture Oscar Contenders was Oliver Stone's "Snowden," but maybe we shouldn't count him out. After all, the filmmaker is a two-time Best Director Oscar winner, and he's got a third for writing the screenplay for "Midnight Express." That said, it's been two decades since he was nominated for anything, but that could change with his latest pic, and the currently-in-production drama has unveiled its first photos. Joseph Gordon-Levitt takes the title role of the whistleblower, with these images showing us the ordinary man who unquestioningly served his country before he made international headlines. Nicolas Cage, Shailene Woodley, Melissa Leo, Zachary Quinto, Tom Wilkinson, Rhys Ifans, Joely Richardson and Timothy Olyphant round out the cast in supporting roles. Will this be a probing look at a contemporary figure or something more along the lines of the »
