Samuel L Jackson, Colin Farrell, Kirk Douglas, Denzel Washington and more, as we explore underrated political thrillers...

Ask someone for their favourite political thrillers and you’re likely to get a list of Oscar-winning classics, from JFK to The Day Of The Jackal, Blow Out to Argo. But what about those electrifying tales that have slipped under the radar, been largely forgotten or just didn’t get the love they deserved? Here are 25 political thrillers which are underappreciated but brilliant.

Generally, the first hostage to get shot in a heist movie is considered insignificant; luckily this time the young woman killed by terrorists has a devoted boyfriend who vows to avenge her death. Charles Heller (John Savage) already works for the CIA, so he’s able to use secret information to blackmail his bosses into »

UK International Jewish Film Festival announces award winners

21 November 2016 2:27 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Beyond The Mountains And Hills, One Week And A Day take home top prizes after 15 days of programming.

The 20th edition of UK International Jewish Film Festival selected its award winners after fifteen days of programming. The festival showcased over 80 world, European and UK premieres of features and shorts from November 5-20.

The Israel-Germany-Belgium co-production Beyond The Mountains And Hills [pictured], directed by Eran Kolirin, took home the award for best feature film. It’s star Mili Eshet collected the prize at the ceremony.

Head of jury Jason Solomons said, “It was felt that Kolirin’s film was a bold step up from his popular debut The Band’s Visit, and we admired his willingness to examine the complexities of modern Israeli life with unflinching views that will challenge some audiences. We were struck and provoked, to varying degrees, by the idea of a family representing a nation in mid-life crisis and representing its fears.

Lumiere Festival: France’s La Rabbia Reissues Nicolas Winding Refn’s ‘Lost’ 1999 Film ‘Bleeder’

7 October 2016 3:25 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lyon – French distribution company La Rabbia arrives at the Lumière Festival with a film little seen outside its native Denmark since its release in 1999. Titled “Bleeder,” it is the first film made by the controversial auteur Nicolas Winding Refn after his arthouse breakout hit “Pusher” (1996) and stars Kim Bodnia as a man pushed to the brink of sanity by his impending fatherhood.

Bleeder” debuted to good notices at the Venice Film Festival – then immediately disappeared. Said La Rabbia’s Manuel Chiche: “Kamikaze, the film’s production company, went out of business, so the movie disappeared, except in a few Scandinavian countries. Two years ago, Nicolas bought back the rights, restored it and in doing so brought it back to the life it never had.”

Although the film is less than 20 years old, a major restoration job was needed. “This is [both] a digital transfer and a digital restoration,” says Chiche. »

Is Nicolas Winding Refn Betraying His Own Talent?

10 July 2016 9:18 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Two weekends ago, Nicolas Winding Refn’s glitzy surreal horror film “The Neon Demon” opened on 783 screens, and when the weekend was over the box-office tally was far scarier than anything in the movie. Presented as a “mainstream” crossover thriller, the film had grossed just $589,000, with a mind-bendingly low per-screen average of $752. When a movie that’s striving to be a work of art falls on its face commercially, there’s no shame in that failure. The history of cinema is dotted with great films that didn’t, at first blush, find their audience, and then become appreciated over time. Yet in this case, the failure may contain a lesson.

The reason that Amazon Studios shoved “The Neon Demon” into so many theaters in the first place is that the relatively young company was betting — reasonably, I would say — that the movie, on its gorgeously bloody Day-Glo surface, was studded »

Hans Rosenfeldt interview: creating The Bridge, Marcella

We chatted to the Swedish creator of The Bridge about series 4, the Scandi-noir label and UK crime drama Marcella...

As his first English-language series Marcella comes out on DVD, we spoke to Swedish screenwriter and novelist Hans Rosenfeldt about the writing process, the differences between British and Swedish television production, and the future of his hugely acclaimed home-grown crime drama, The Bridge

What did you find most appealing about Marcella when you first heard the pitch?

Well, I was pitched the idea by Nicola Larder (Marcella’s co-creator and executive producer). We met in Italy and were talking about The Bridge, and she actually pitched me an idea about this female detective being left by her husband and bringing back an old case. I really liked that because it sounded like something I could probably work with. The opportunity to work abroad was what really attracted me, »

The Bridge: an unforgettable Scandinavian drama

As UK remake The Tunnel returns, we celebrate Swedish/Danish crime drama The Bridge...

9pm, Saturday night, BBC Four. For the few of us who still, on occasion, watch television when it’s actually broadcast, that timeslot means only one thing: high-quality drama from outside the anglophone world. Okay, so some of the series are less impressive than others, and one or two are in English (remember Australia’s The Code?) but these are exceptions to the rule. What began as a fad, accompanied by much reductive talk of ‘Scandi noir’ and a mildly disturbing national obsession with Sarah Lund’s knitwear, has culminated in a golden age for telly addicts. Our initial resistance to subtitles has faded, and a whole world of often beautifully acted, compellingly plotted drama has opened up. We haven’t strayed very far outside Europe yet, but it’s a start.
