Robert Altman's murder tale reeks of insider access and Hollywood hipster Bs; its main claim to greatness is its fifty-plus star cameos. It may no longer seem as smart as it looked in 1992, but they don't make 'em any slicker than this. The Player Blu-ray The Criterion Collection 812 1992 / Color /1:85 widescreen / 124 min. / Available through The Criterion Collection / Street Date May 24, 2016 / 39.95 Starring Tim Robbins, Greta Scacchi, Fred Ward, Whoopi Goldberg, Peter Gallagher, Brion James, Cynthia Stevenson, Vincent D'Onofrio, Lyle Lovett. Cinematography Jean Lépine Original Music Thomas Newman Written by Michael Tolkin from his novel Produced by David Brown, Michael Tolkin, Nick Wechsler Directed by Robert Altman

Reviewed by Glenn Erickson

Robert Altman's filmography is undergoing what looks like a full retrospective through Criterion; even the 1975 title Nashville came out not long ago. This very successful later picture marks a revitalization of the director's career. It's sort of a Kafkaesque spin on Hail, »

Sundance 2016 Review: Trash Fire is a Stinging Portrait of Family Dysfunction at its Bleakest

5 February 2016 12:12 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

In less than ten years, filmmaker Richard Bates Jr. has made quite the impact in the world of independent horror. His short film, Excision, led to a stunning 2012 feature film version, his follow-up, Suburban Gothic, was a blistering, supernaturally-infused small-town yarn and with his latest movie, Trash Fire, Bates Jr. takes on adulthood and dysfunctional families.

For the most part, Trash Fire succeeds as a caustic tale of obsession, forgiveness, and the trappings of modern religion, although admittedly things start off a bit rough with the introduction of Owen (Adrian Grenier). We learn almost immediately that Owen is a complete asshole, as he abrasively chats with his therapist (Sally Kirkland) about his past and his general disdain for everyone and everything. Owen’s destructive nature is spilling over into his relationship with longtime girlfriend Isabel (Angela Trimbur), but once she reveals that she’s pregnant, Owen decides he’s ready »

Sundance Film Review: ‘Trash Fire’

24 January 2016 12:15 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Misanthropy runs in the family in “Trash Fire,” an aggressively unpleasant black comedy with modest horror flourishes from director Richard Bates Jr. Gunning for cult status, the pic may find a small following among those who prefer their dialogue exclusively delivered in the form of insults, put-downs and offensive outbursts. But awkward execution and thriller elements that fail to ignite will keep this oddity limited to, if not the garbage heap, at least the VOD ghetto.

Topliner Adrian Grenier distances himself immediately from laidback “EntourageAlpha male Vinnie Chase in the role of miserable antihero Owen. As he tells his bored shrink (Sally Kirkland) in the abrasive opening scene, he’s wanted to kill himself for years but could never work up the courage, even after both his parents died in a freak fire that left his younger sister scarred for life.

From that character-illuminating introduction, the pic segues to »
