‘Black Sea’ Interview with Director Kevin Macdonald

54 minutes ago | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Director Kevin Macdonald’s Black Sea an is a sturdy old-fashioned thriller, an adventure and treasure hunt set within the confines of a submarine. its captain is played by a burly Jude Law, who leads a group of ruffians down to the bottom of the Black Sea to find a sunken Nazi sub that is rumored to have tons and tons of gold on board. With the drama of the film ratcheted up with crew tension and water conditions, Macdonald’s film is a tense throwback, albeit a parable about the 99% helping each other since they’re on the same boat.

Macdonald previously directed films like How I Live Now, The Last King of Scotland, The Eagle, and Touching the Void. He was also the filmmaker chosen to compile a worldwide stack of footage for the documentary endeavor Life in a Day.

Director: Stephen Daldry; Screenwriter: Richard Curtis; Starring: Rooney Mara, Martin Sheen, Wagner Moura, Selton Mello, Rickson Teves, Eduardo Luis, Gabriel Weinstein; Running time: 114 mins; Certificate: 15

Brazil has been thrust into the spotlight of late thanks to last year's World Cup and its forthcoming Olympic Games in 2016, but look past the sunny samba beat and you'll find a country overrun with corruption. It's this Brazil that provides the backdrop for Stephen Daldry's Trash, a fleet-footed adaptation of Andy Mulligan's 2010 novel.

Daldry's film, adapted for the screen by Richard Curtis, follows three Rio street kids - Raphael, Gardo, and Rato - as they stumble across a wallet that leads them on an adventure that could pull them out of poverty. Hot on their heels are bent officials, led by cop Frederico Gonz (Selton Mello), who won't hesitate to turn violent in pursuit of their goal. The decay runs high up into Rio's authorities, »

28 January 2015 11:05 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

"Babylon," the new drama series from SundanceTV, is about to air its fourth episode of a short, six-part first season. So far, the London depicted from a police perspective is a chaotic mess, with the public clashing mightily against its oppressive guardians.  Brit Marling's Liz is doing her best to stem the tidal wave rising against the police department, but there's only so much a new-age, system-bucking PR chief can do. She needs support, which is exactly what she was getting from Commissioner Miller (Nesbitt) — but now he's gone. Where? Watch the clip below to find out (but please be warned, spoilers follow for anyone not up to date on the series). "Babylon" was created and executive-produced by Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle. It airs Thursdays at 10pm on SundanceTV. Read More: Review: Danny Boyle's 'Babylon' is Startlingly Relevant, Rounded and...Funny? »
