The Double review A brilliantly realised nightmare universe

3 April 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Richard Ayoade turns an unpromising Dostoevsky story into a quick-witted, elegant and genuinely unsettling film

For this follow-up to his debut feature Submarine, Richard Ayoade has picked a demanding and in some ways unpromising subject: a new adaptation of Dostoevsky's novella The Double, about a drab loser who discovers that he has a doppelgänger in the workplace an exact replica of him, but aggressively successful, charming and upwardly mobile. Ayoade translates this to a creepy and crumbling nightmare-world: his unhappy protagonist is a data-input manager in a dreary warren, stuffed with clunky, retro 80s computer equipment and office furniture, and he lives in a similarly grim flat. The only entertainment on offer for inhabitants of this terrible universe appears to be a cheapo Blakes-7-type drama continuously playing on TV sets mounted on wall brackets. All this could have been a tiresome film-school venture in someone else's hands, but it is brilliant: quick-witted, »

‘White of the Eye’ Blu-ray Review

31 March 2014 12:21 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: David Keith, Cathy Moriarty, Alan Rosenberg, Art Evans, Michael Greene, Danielle Smith, Alberta Watson, William G. Schilling, David Chow, Pamela Guest, Marc Hayashi, Mimi Lieber | Written by Donald Cammell, China Kong | Directed by Donald Cammell

Arrow Video are good at finding the cult movies that although sometimes obscure always deserve to be watched.  White of the Eye is a release that fits into this criteria, for the most part it would be just another average serial killer movie until Donald Cammell adds some style to it.  With a hint of mysticism and an artistic touch White of the Eye is a unique mystery that although flawed is well worth the experience.

Taking place in an isolated desert community a sound expert Paul White (David Keith) finds himself a suspect in the killings of some of the local suburban housewives.  Trying to prove his innocence, memories from the past are »

Watch: Mia Wasikowska Has Never Met Anyone Like Jesse Eisenberg In New Clip From 'The Double'

27 March 2014 1:56 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"It was the idea of somebody so invisible & lowly that their double could appear and no one would notice; that was funny," director Richard Ayoade said during a recent Q&A about this forthcoming "The Double." And indeed, the film's pleasures come from indulging in the absurdness of the scenario of a doppelganger emerging, consuming the life of his opposite, and no one being any the wiser except for the double. Jesse Eisenberg and Mia Wasikowska lead the excellent ensemble for this one (that includes Noah Taylor, Wallace Shawn, Yasmin Page, Cathy Moriarty and more), with their complicated relationship at the center of the movie. You see, Simon James likes Hannah, she barely knows he's alive, but she utterly falls for his duplicate, James Simon, a much more charismatic and successful individual. And so you have scenes like the one in this clip, where Simon is utterly baffled that Hannah »

White Of The Eye Blu-ray Review

25 March 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Donald Cammell

Starring: David Keith, Cathy Moriarty, Alan Rosenberg, Art Evans, Michael Greene, Danielle Smith, Alberta Watson, William G. Schilling

Running Time: 111 Minutes

Certificate: 18

Extras: Donald Cammell: The Ultimate Performance Feature Length Documentary, The Argument: 1972 Short Film by Cammell, Into The White: Interview with Cinematographer, Deleted Scenes, Alternate Credit Sequence

Donald Cammell only directed four films in his career, before taking his life after losing final cut on his final film The Wild Side. Whether his suicide was a direct result of studio interference or not is open to debate, but it either way, the man was intense, dedicated, and visionary. White Of The Eye is a fantastic piece of work in a fantastic package thanks to the ever faultless folks over at Arrow Video.

Win White of The Eye on Blu-ray

24 March 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

To mark the release of White of the Eye on 31st March, we’ve been given 3 copies to give away on Blu-ray.

A serial killer is on the loose in and around the small community of Globe, Arizona, and housewife Joan White (Cathy Moriarty) gradually comes to suspect that her opera-loving hi-fi engineer husband Paul (David Keith) might know more than he’s letting on…

So far so familiar, but in the hands of British visionary Donald Cammell (who wrote and co-directed Performance with Nicolas Roeg), the film becomes a dazzling kaleidoscope of images and ideas, spanning everything from Apache folklore, desert landscapes and stylish murder set-pieces that recall Dario Argento to a painfully vivid dissection of the emotional fissures undermining a modern marriage. It’s all set to an equally eclectic score co-written by Pink Floyd’s Nick Mason.

 Please note: This competition is open to UK residents only »

Andy Garcia, Ray Romano, Raymond De Felitta, Jonathan Fernandez, and Stephen Endelman Talk Rob The Mob, How the Project Came Together, and More

19 March 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Opening March 21st, Rob the Mob is a heartbreaking crime-thriller inspired by the true story of Tommy (Michael Pitt) and Rosie (Nina Arianda) Uva, two small-time crooks from Queens whose crazy-passionate love for one another fueled their audacious heists of Mafia social clubs in the 1990s and led to a startling discovery.  The film directed by Raymond De Felitta from a screenplay by Jonathan Fernandez boasts an impressive cast that also includes Andy Garcia (who also produces), Ray Romano, Griffin Dunne, Cathy Moriarty, Michael Rispoli, Val Vazquez, Frank Whaley and Burt Young. At the film’s recent press day, Garcia, De Felitta, Romano, Fernandez and composer Stephen Endelman spoke about how the project emerged, why Fernandez’s well written script and De Felitta’s directing style helped attract an incredible cast, how the actors approached their characters and brought the fascinating story to life, De Felitta’s unique collaboration with »

White Of The Eye: Blu-ray Review

17 March 2014 1:12 PM, PDT | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

Director: Donald Cammell. Review: Adam Wing. Donald Cammell only made four movies, but his life off screen was far more eventful than the time he spent behind the camera. Cammell was born in Scotland, and wrote and co-directed his first feature, Performance, with Nicholas Roeg in 1968. Roeg got most of the credit for that film and achieved greater success as a result, but despite numerous attempts, Cammell didn't make another feature until Demon Seed in 1977. Shortly after his fourth film, 1995's Wild Side, Cammell committed suicide in Hollywood, the only place he had ever wanted to make movies. Furthermore, his wife claimed the wound was not immediately fatal and that he had asked for a mirror so that he could watch himself die. A claim that's been refuted by several sources since. You can see why the connection was made though, because he was certainly attracted to death, and his third film, »

Rob the Mob | Review

Dog Eat Dog: De Felitta’s Entertaining Take of a Take

After the success of his 2009 indie feature, City Island, Raymond De Felitta turns to a scrappy ‘based on a true story’ vehicle with Rob the Mob, a film that manages to override predispositions and assume an energetic momentum that is both rewarding and engaging. An interestingly varied cast, populated by a several faces instantly recognizable from either “The Sopranos” or various Martin Scorsese films, provides the film with immediate likeability, an entertaining mix of mafia history and character study.

In 1991, while the Gotti trial holds everyone’s rapt attention, Tommy (Michael Pitt) is paroled after getting busted for holding up a floral shop with girlfriend Rosie (Nina Arianda). While Rosie has kicked drugs and a life of crime to clean up her act, she now works as a star performer at a collection agency run by Dave Lovell (Griffin Dunne »

Miami Film Review: ‘Rob the Mob’

16 March 2014 12:47 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Two decades after serving as semi-light relief for Big Apple newspaper editors in the heady days of the John Gotti trial, the richly improbable story of Tommy and Rosemarie Uva gets lively, compassionate treatment in the latest likable effort from practised East Coast portraitist Raymond De Felitta. Though the film reunites De Felitta with Andy Garcia, the star and producer of 2010′s “City Island,” the spotlight is ceded to sparky younger stars Michael Pitt and Nina Arianda as a Bronx-reared Bonnie and Clyde who hit on a novel, elegant and inevitably ill-fated get-rich-quick scheme: holding up and cleaning out Mafia social clubs, knowing their victims would keep the law out of it. Graced with good humor, seamy period texture and a particularly sensational turn from Arianda, this otherwise unassuming pic – premiered at the Miami Film Festival – opens in limited release on March 21, and should do its best business in ancillary. »

Arrow Films look into the White Of The Eye

7 March 2014 9:34 AM, PST | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

Arrow Video is excited to announce the UK Dual Format Blu-ray + DVD and Steelbook release of the 1987 British thriller, White of the Eye, which will be making its worldwide Blu-ray debut, and UK DVD debut from 31st March 2014. Described by the distinguished critic David Thomson as “one of the great secret works in cinema”, White of the Eye is one of the most bizarre and unforgettable thrillers ever made. Arrow Video’s Francesco Simeoni said: "Donald Cammell was such an unfortunate filmmaker, side-lined by critics who thought Nicolas Roeg was the creative force behind Performance, projects which would never come to fruition, studio interference and personal problems, his life was arguably more famous than his films. White of the Eye is possibly his most problem free film, though even this film suffered cuts, which we have included, although sadly no sound could be found. Though the film was cut, Cammell never commented, »

Jesse Eisenberg Battles Himself in Excellent New Trailer for Richard Ayoade’s The Double

28 February 2014 12:34 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Magnolia Pictures has released a wonderful new trailer for writer/director Richard Ayoade’s (Submarine) new film The Double.  The story centers on meek office-drone Simon James (Jesse Eisenberg) who is overlooked by everyone he knows including his crush, Hannah (Mia Wasikowska).  Simon’s meager life is then upended when he meets James Simon (Jesse Eisenberg), a man who’s identical in appearance and the complete opposite in personality.  This trailer is, quite simply, fantastic, as it highlights Ayoade’s delightfully inventive script, Eisenberg’s stellar dual performances, and the film’s darkly humorous tone.  The film received a wildly positive response at the Toronto International Film Festival (read Matt’s review here), and I can’t wait to check it out for myself in a couple of months. Hit the jump to watch the new U.S. trailer.  The film also stars Wallace Shawn, Yasmin Paige, Noah Taylor, James Fox, »

Great New Trailer for Richard Ayoade’s The Double Starring Jesse Eisenberg and Jesse Eisenberg

10 February 2014 8:35 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

One of my favorite films from Tiff 2013 was Richard Ayoade's The Double, and I'm going to keep raving about it until you go see it.  The film centers on meek office-drone Simon James (Jesse Eisenberg) who is overlooked by everyone he knows including his crush, Hannah (Mia Wasikowska).  Simon's meager little life is then upended when he meets James Simon (Jesse Eisenberg), a man who's identical in appearance and the complete opposite in personality.  The film is a bit of comic thriller, but this new trailer goes more for the creepy side of the story, which is fine.  It also highlights Erik Wilson's stark, haunting cinematography.  I cannot wait to see this movie again. Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  The film also stars Wallace Shawn, Yasmin Paige, Noah Taylor, James Fox, Cathy Moriarty, Chris O’Dowd, Sally Hawkins, Craig Roberts, and Paddy ConsidineThe Double opens in the U. »
