Going In Style Review

7 April 2017 5:39 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If Hollywood is really so keen on remaking 1979 crime comedy/drama Going in Style, then it’s easy to consider this new version to be something of a best-case scenario, at least in terms of its casting. While the original united George Burns, Art Carney and Lee Strasberg as three senior citizens who decide to stage a bank robbery, the 2017 edition brings out three Academy Award-winning legends in Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and Alan Arkin. But a film cannot live or die solely by the stars leading the charge, can it?

Going in Style certainly puts that question to the test. The three leading men bring their decades of experience to the screen with little effort, elevating the material with every second that each of them appears onscreen. Caine is essentially our protagonist here as Joe, the character who’s inspired to recoup his lost pension by robbing the bank where his money is held. »

Going in Style movie review: pabulum and circuses

7 April 2017 11:54 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

MaryAnn’s quick take… Bland, tasteless entertainmentstuff intended to neither move nor offend, and succeeds as such. A sad pile of unfunny nothing that falls painfully flat. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

I suddenly realized, while struggling to stay awake during the limp and unfunny Going in Style, that it seemed like forever ago that I first started seeing trailers for the film. Had its release been postponed after an initial marketing push, or was it just so uninspired and familiar that it merely felt as if I’d seen it all before?

Both, as it turns out: Style was original slated to open almost a year ago, in May 2016 (which means I probably saw trailers in late 2015), and it’s also such a stale wisp of a dustbunny that it barely stands out from its own background noise. »

Review: ‘Going in Style’ is a Serviceable, Formulaic Remake

6 April 2017 10:59 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Back before Martin Brest was placed into forced retirement post-Gigli, he had a run of comedy hits including Midnight Run and Beverly Hills Cop. The first of these studio pictures, however, was a heist flick starring eighty-year old George Burns, seventy-year old Lee Strasberg, and fifty-year old Art Carney as clean-nosed roommates inexplicably looking to rob a bank. The fun was in the preparation—a rejuvenated excitement in their lives. The drama came via a long, winding road of tragedy afterwards. So of course Warner Bros. thought about how they could cull together a twenty-first century trio of octogenarians to do the exact same thing. Have them decide to rob their own bank for revenge and ride into the sunset for a senior citizen Hell or High Water.

Well, the result isn’t quite that successful so don’t start handicapping Going in Style for any Oscar nominations just yet. »

Lars von Trier Reveals ‘The House That Jack Built’ Could Be His Final Movie: ‘I Feel Like Sh*t’

10 March 2017 10:03 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s been quite a couple days for Lars von Trier. The infamous filmmaker began production on “The House That Jack Built” earlier this week in Bengtfors, Sweden, where he addressed members of the press to tease the brutal nature of the movie and confirm plans to return to the Cannes Film Festival. But none of that can compare to the bombshell von Trier dropped in regards to the future of his filmmaking career. According to a Deadline report from a press conference on set, the director’s new movie could actually be his last.

Lars von Trier Wants You to Know ‘The House That Jack Built’ Will Be His Most Brutal Film Ever

8 March 2017 7:59 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Lars von Trier is finally back behind the camera for his first feature since “Nymphomaniac,” and we’re not sure whether we should be excited or flat out terrified, especially since the drama is about the coming of age of a serial killer. “The House that Jack Built,” which is set over 12 years and focuses on five key murders, is currently filming in Bengtfors, Sweden, and von Trier took some time to meet with press (via ScreenDaily) alongside stars Matt Dillon and Uma Thurman and producers Louise Vesth and Madeleine Ekman.

“I chose Matt and I chose Uma because they obviously can’t read,” von Trier said. He may have been using his trademark sarcasm, but it’s clear even the director knows this is going to be his most brutal movie to date, which is saying something coming from the man behind “Nymphomaniac,” “Breaking the Waves” and “Antichrist.”

8 March 2017 5:36 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Set report: director and cast discuss Us-set drama The House That Jack Built during Tuesday 7 March press event.

”I chose Matt and I chose Uma because they obviously can’t read,” Lars von Trier says with the hint of a smile.

The Danish director is sitting in a village hall a few kilometres outside the town of Bengtfors in a snow-covered part of Sweden which is standing in for the state of Washington, where his next film, the serial killer-drama The House That Jack Built, is set.

Von Trier is flanked by Matt Dillon and Uma Thurman, two of the main actors in the film, and two of his producers, Louise Vesth from Zentropa and Madeleine Ekman, and they are faced by a large group of journalists, mostly from Scandinavia and some from the rest of Europe.

He continues: ”There were so many people we sent the script to, who said they would do anything to work »

Uma Thurman joins the cast of Lars Von Trier’s serial killer thriller The House That Jack Built

7 March 2017 1:18 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The latest effort from maverick filmmaker Lars Von Trier has cast actress Uma Thurman as a co-star.

The film titled The House That Jack Built is headlined by Matt Dillon as a serial killer and now Thurman has joined proceedings too, reuniting with her Nymphomaniac director.

This much anticipated thriller by the director of Melancholia, has also signed on Siobhan Fallon Hogan to the cast, which also includes Bruno Ganz, Riley Keough and Sofie Gråbøl.

As reported by Variety, producer of the film Louise Vesth said about the coming together of Thurman and Von Trier, “(Thurman) and Lars first worked together on Nymphomaniac and complimented each other in an exceptional way; I can’t wait to see which character they’ll create together this time”.

Von Trier is certainly an auteur, playing by no one’s rules but his own. His films have confounded, delighted and perplexed fans over the years, »

Lars Von Trier Thriller The House That Jack Built Casts Uma Thurman And Siobhan Fallon Hogan

7 March 2017 6:41 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Brick by brick, Lars von Trier thriller The House that Jack Built is fast beginning to take shape.

Originally pitched as a TV series, the Danish auteur (Melancholia, Nymphomaniac) has re-engineered his murder mystery to be an ambitious, decade-spanning drama centering on Matt Dillon’s twisted serial killer. Wanting nothing more than to finish his self-proclaimed, and no doubt horrifying, masterpiece, Jack spends much of his life in the shadows, eluding capture all throughout the ’70s and ’80s. To date, von Trier has recruited Dillon, Bruno Ganz, Sofie Gråbøl and Riley Keough (The Girlfriend Experience, Logan Lucky) to the cause, and Deadline now brings word of two new additions: Uma Thurman and Siobhan Fallon Hogan.

Both actresses have worked with the provocative filmmaker in the past; Thurman recently had a role in the two-part saga Nymphomaniac, whereas Hogan worked under von Trier on both Dancer in the Dark and Dogville. »

Even if you didn’t see Lars von Trier‘s 241-minute (or 325-minute) two-part Nymphomaniac, there’s a strong chance you witnessed at least part of Uma Thurman‘s performance (courtesy of the above still or the below clip) in the film’s most beautifully awkward scene, surrounding a “whoring bed.” She’ll now get her chance to re-enter the world of Lars von Trier as she’s joined his serial killer drama The House That Jack Built.

As reported by ZentropaSiobhan Fallon Hogan (Dancer in the Dark, Dogville) will also be re-teaming with von Trier, with both actors playing women who come across the violent path of the lead. Spanning 12 years and following Matt Dillon in the lead role as we see his character’s presumably brutal murders, the film also stars Bruno Ganz, Riley Keough, and Sofia Grabol. The film will be split into “five incidents” (aka »
