Movie Review – American Violence (2017)

5 February 2017 6:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

American Violence, 2017.

Directed by Timothy Woodward Jr.

Starring Kaiwi Lyman-Mersereau, Denise Richards, Michael Paré, Columbus Short, Emma Rigby, Johnny Messner, Patrick Kilpatrick, Nick Chinlund, Rob Gronkowski, and Bruce Dern.

Synopsis:

Fascinated by the root causes of violent behavior, world renowned psychologist, Dr. Amanda Tyler, has an opportunity to interview and analyze death row inmate Jackson Shea. As the interview commences, and Jack’s fate hangs in the balance, Amanda must determine whether or not a stay of execution should be granted.

Every once in a blue moon a movie comes along toting a veteran actor who you can’t help but wonder how they got roped into such low-profile, amateurish garbage. Enter American Violence which somehow has Bruce Dern in it. Granted, he is only in the movie for roughly a combined 10 minutes, but still, it’s sad watching him reduced to such bargain bin quality after Quentin Tarantino gave »

Sundance Film Review: ‘The Hero’

21 January 2017 9:36 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If a 60-foot saguaro cactus could talk, it would almost certainly sound like Sam Elliott. At 72 years old, the lanky character actor has played his share of bikers, hippies, and cowboys, but never the hero — at least, never on the level of Lee Hayden, the faded-glory Western star he portrays in Brett Haley’s “The Hero.” This affectionately crafted project offers Elliott the most substantial big-screen role of his career, though sadly, that’s not saying an awful lot for an actor who was passed over to play Indiana Jones, and is instead best known for drawling such catchphrases as “The Dude abides” and “Beef: It’s what for dinner.”

Fortunately for Elliott, “The Hero” targets those old enough to remember his early roles (like the clean-shaven card sharp in the opening scene of “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,”) and particularly memorable later ones (the silver-‘stashed seducer in »
