Beyond Fright Review: The Two Faces Of January

17 January 2015 3:15 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

The art of creating a successful mystery seems to be lost on many of today’s filmmakers and their films. Instead of allowing a solid story to play out in front of you and keep you guessing, a lot of films falling into the mystery/thriller genre tend to utilize the same ol’ twists and turns we’ve all seen time and time again. When a film comes along and offers a story full of suspense and surprise, it’s a surprise and a very refreshing one at that. Luckily, Drive screenwriter Hossein Amini’s feature directorial debut, The Two Faces Of January, is just that type of film, one that keeps you guessing until the very end.

Adapted from The Talented Mr. Ripley author Patricia Highsmith’s novel of the same name, The Two Faces Of January throws you into a thriller full of twists, double crosses and a »

Just about one year from his initial start date with the company — and just a few weeks ahead of Berlin — Entertainment One Films International President, Harold van Lier, is leaving. Formerly Studiocanal Evp of International Distribution, Van Lier joined eOne with much fanfare in January of 2014 and was armed with a $100M acquisitions fund.

The company said today that Van Lier had decided to leave “as a result of the consolidation.”

Notebook's 7th Writers Poll: Fantasy Double Features of 2014

5 January 2015 10:08 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

How would you program this year's newest, most interesting films into double features with movies of the past you saw in 2014?

Looking back over the year at what films moved and impressed us, it is clear that watching old films is a crucial part of making new films meaningful. Thus, the annual tradition of our end of year poll, which calls upon our writers to pick both a new and an old film: they were challenged to choose a new film they saw in 2014—in theatres or at a festival—and creatively pair it with an old film they also saw in 2014 to create a unique double feature.

All the contributors were given the option to write some text explaining their 2014 fantasy double feature. What's more, each writer was given the option to list more pairings, with or without explanation, as further imaginative film programming we'd be lucky to catch »
