Scott Reviews Kenneth Lonergan’s Manchester by the Sea [Sundance 2016]

27 January 2016 1:17 PM, PST | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

A note for readers – although I will attempt not to reveal crucial plot details that don’t fall under the general umbrella of the film’s premise (and which will certainly be incorporated into future trailers and the like), everyone has their own definitions of these things, so consider this fair warning.

All three of Kenneth Lonergan’s films deal with how people cope after tragedies. In You Can Count on Me, it was the past – two siblings who lost their parents in a car accident at a young age develop different ways of surviving that. In Margaret, the present; a teenager witnesses a horrific bus accident that leaves a woman dead in her arms. Manchester by the Sea folds a tragedy of the past into one of the present.

Blu-ray Review – The Friends of Eddie Coyle (1973)

24 January 2016 9:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Friends of Eddie Coyle, 1973.

Directed by Peter Yates.

Starring Robert Mitchum, Peter Boyle, Richard Jordan, Steven Keats, Alex Rocco, Joe Santos and Mitchell Ryan.

Synopsis:

After his last crime has him looking at a long prison sentence for repeat offenses, a low level Boston gangster decides to snitch on his friends to avoid jail time.

Eddie Coyle is a small time gun runner for an organised crime outfit in Boston. He knows the game. He knows when to keep his mouth shut and what happens to those who do not. They call him ‘Fingers’ due to an incident with his hand, an open drawer, and someone’s foot closing that draw on his hand. It’s a constant reminder of the life he chose.

We enter the film with Eddie in trouble; caught smuggling contraband and it’s not his first time which means another stretch in jail. But Eddie is 51 years old, »

Steven Spielberg’s ‘Ready Player One’ Eyes Ben Mendelsohn For Lead Villain Role

6 January 2016 3:16 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After working with Terrence Malick, Christopher Nolan, Ridley Scott, Andrew Dominik, Derek Cianfrance, and many more, Ben Mendelsohn finally got a substantial leading role this year with Mississippi Grind, leading to more deserved attention. It looks like he’s now caught the eyes of another top director: Steven Spielberg.

On the heels of Bridge of Spies and ahead of The Bfg this summer, he plans to kick off production on Ready Player One this March in the U.K. and now he’s found his villain. According to THR, Mendelsohn is in early talks for the role of an evil Internet executive in the story which is partially set in a virtual world called Oasis. Also starring Olivia Cooke, it follows a yet-to-be-cast teenager who finds himself competing in a treasure hunt against ruthless foes after the game’s founder dies and offers his fortune as the grand prize.
