Michael Almereyda's thrilling Experimenter with Peter Sarsgaard as Stanley Milgram, Winona Ryder as his wife Sacha, Jim Gaffigan as the "Learner", "Teachers" including John Leguizamo and Tom Farrell, and Ned Eisenberg as social psychology pioneer Solomon Asch, is a storytelling experiment on its own.
Busy preparing his new film, starring Lois Smith and Jon Hamm, based on Jordan Harrison's Pulitzer Prize nominated play, Marjorie Prime, Michael met me at a café in the East Village to discuss Experimenter with a quick glance back at Sam Shepard directing The Late Henry Moss in Almereyda's This So-Called Disaster (starring Nick Nolte, Sean Penn, Woody Harrelson, Sheila Tousey and Cheech Marin), and a move forward to more Italo Calvino folktales.

* Susan Sarandon has exited Epix’s upcoming »
So much for Epix’s dream pairing of Nick Nolte and Susan Sarandon as the leads for its first original comedy series. The premium TV network/VOD service backed by Viacom, Lionsgate, and MGM said in a statement today that the Oscar-winning actress has left Graves “due to artistic differences.” Two months ago she was set to play Margaret Graves, the wife of former U.S. President Richard Graves (Nolte), who decides to follow her own political ambitions just as her husband… »

Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials may be the winner at the box office with an estimated $30.3 million, but it failed to make much headway with critics, nor did it manage to top the previous film and its $32.5 million opening (though it will likely do well with overseas dollars). Interestingly, the real winner of the box office may well be second-place finisher Black Mass. With an estimated $23.4 million, it heralds critical acclaim for long-struggling Johnny Depp, who has not headlined a bonafide hit since the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean film in 2011. And while it has not signaled a
perfect comeback, The Visit is certainly a step in the right direction for M. Night Shyamalan, with a second week estimated take of $11.4 million bringing the running total to $41.4 million on a $5 million budget.
The Perfect Guy entered its second week with a large drop in revenue, but its estimated $9.6 million weekend »

Threading more or less the same path as last year’s Reese Witherspoon starring Wild, A Walk in the Woods, an adaption of travel writer Bill Bryson’s book of the same name, sees Robert Redford step into the shoes of Bryson as he attempts the Appalachian Trail, a 2,200 mile hiking trail that passes through 14 American states, including Georgia, Tennessee, Maryland, and New York. Forced to take a partner by his wife (Emma Thompson), Bryson finds the only taker is his old friend Steven Katz (Nick Nolte), an overweight, recovering alcoholic who looks to be in no shape for psychical exertion of any kind. The pair embark on the endeavour, but as you can expect from two men in their 70’s, they soon find they’ve bitten off more than they can chew. With our two leads the main focus of its 104 minute run time, A Walk in the Woods »

Perhaps not surprisingly for a man of advanced years, Robert Redford takes a leisurely approach to portraying Bill Bryson, the renowned travel writer whose same-titled book details his attempt to conquer the Appalachian Trail, 2,180 miles from Georgia to Maine along the east coast of America.
It's worth noting that Redford is almost twice the age Bryson was when he set off on the hiking trail, but joined by a grizzled Nick Nolte, the spectre of infirmity closing in upon the both of them adds another layer of humour and tension.
Emma Thompson has a small role as Bryson's better half who can sense his feet beginning to itch after they attend the funeral of a friend. It isn't a midlife crisis looming but a late-life one that director Ken Kwapis only hints at to keep the mood light.
Nolte plays Bryson's old travelling buddy, Katz, who has fought a lifelong »

Back in the late sixties Nicholas King Nolte was a Nebraska boy done good. Booted out of numerous high schools and colleges due to poor grades and the odd shenanigan – he was expelled from his native Benson High for fighting and stashing beer – Nolte was able to put the Midwest behind him at an early age and embark on a burgeoning modelling career.
One successful Clairol ad later and his face was one that people were starting to recognise – smooth, handsome and seemingly etched from stone. But it was his dabbling in theatre productions and stage schools that set him onto his true calling, where he first found key roles in television – his role in miniseries Rich Man, Poor Man was a Brando esque calling card – a before answering Hollywood’s call for a new tough yet sincere leading man.
What transpired was a career littered with good, »

A Walk in the Woods is based on Bill Bryson’s travel book about attempting to hike the 2,200-mile Appalachian Trail in the Us with an old friend. It strips out most of Bryson’s prose and wit and leaves us with a folksy-sentimental tale about a couple of adorable old geezers tottering through the woods, like Statler and Waldorf without the laughs. At 79 years old, producer-star Robert Redford plays Bill Bryson, who was in his mid-40s when he undertook the hike. The movie’s geriatric themes can therefore be described as semi-intentional, and Redford’s performance is really so stilted it »

The ad campaign for Ken Kwapis‘ A Walk in the Woods gives the impression that it’s a geriatric version of last year’s Wild: two geezers hike the Appalachian Trail and discover the True Meaning of Life along the way. And there’s a bit of that, to be sure, but the overall tone is comedic rather than revelatory — Grumpy Old Hikers, if you will. I’m not familiar with the memoir on which the movie is based, but I think comedy was the right approach. It’s a decent entertainment, even if there are a few dropped threads and jokes that don’t quite hit the target.
Robert Redford stars as Bill Bryson, a travel writer from New Hampshire who decides to hike the famed 2,000-plus-mile trail after the funeral of yet another close acquaintance. When his wife (the ever-lovely Emma Thompson) informs him that he can’t »

Robert Redford had Bill Bryson’s A Walk In The Woods as a project in development for over 10 years. At some point, however, the movie simply rotted in its box, and this weekend the lid was lifted on the whole stinky mess. Not that I worry too much about Redford movies but I do object when he takes down a great actor along with him.
