Movie Review – The Ballad of Lefty Brown (2017)

The Ballad of Lefty Brown, 2017.

Written and Directed by Jared Moshe.

Starring Bill Pullman, Diego Josef, Tommy Flanagan, Jim Caviezel, Kathy Baker, Adam O’Byrne, Joe Anderson, Michael Spears, and Peter Fonda.

Synopsis:

A coming-of-age Western for a 65-year-old man.

A24 continues to be full of surprises, as there isn’t any other well-known distributor that would scoop up a full-blown Western that feels as if it was a restored feature from the 60s (unless it’s from Quentin Tarantino or another high-profile filmmaker). From frontier vistas captured seemingly with natural lighting, dirty production design, horses galloping, old-timey pistol gunfire, and a tried-and-true typical tale of vengeance, writer and director Jared Moshe’s (who has also dabbled in lower-budget Western dramas before) The Ballad of Lefty Brown is an anomaly for the current landscape of cinema. It may not reinvent the wheel of the classic genre, but the execution is

Peaky Blinders interview: Paul Anderson on Arthur Shelby

Louisa Mellor Nov 15, 2017

We chatted to actor Paul Anderson about playing the violent, conflicted and vulnerable Arthur Shelby in Peaky Blinders

Contains spoilers for Peaky Blinders series three.

See related Red Dwarf Xii episode 5 review: M-Corp Red Dwarf Xii episode 4 review: Mechocracy Red Dwarf Xii episode 3 review: Timewave

Paul Anderson is a revelation as Arthur, the eldest of Peaky Blinders’ Shelby brothers. Arthur’s the funniest, the maddest and—until the death of Tommy’s wife Grace in series three—he was also the saddest of the Shelby boys.

Traumatised by World War I and used as brother Tommy's "mad dog" in the Peakies' bloody ascension through the criminal ranks, Arthur came into series three conflicted. For the sake of his new Quaker wife and the child they were expecting, he tried to curtail his violent instincts and be a better, more godly man. No mean feat for someone whose line of work demands brutality,

First Trailer for A24's 'The Ballad of Lefty Brown' Starring Bill Pullman

"Chase down Eddie's killer, then bring him back." A24 has debuted a trailer for western drama The Ballad of Lefty Brown, from filmmaker Jared Moshe, which first premiered at the SXSW Film Festival this year. Bill Pullman stars as washed-up sidekick Lefty Brown, who watches his longtime friend/partner murdered before his eyes. He decides to go after the killer, rallying a group of people to support him, including an old, experienced gunhand and a young cowboy. The full cast includes Kathy Baker, Jim Caviezel, Tommy Flanagan, Diego Josef, and Joe Anderson, with an appearance by Peter Fonda as Lefty's murdered friend. This looks damn good, a moody revenge western with some real grit. Pullman seems great as always. Here's the first trailer (+ poster) for Jared Moshe's The Ballad of Lefty Brown, from A24's YouTube: Aging sidekick Lefty Brown (Bill Pullman) has ridden with Eddie Johnson (Peter Fonda) his entire life.

Ballad of Lefty Brown Trailer Has Bill Pullman Seeking Justice

Ballad of Lefty Brown Trailer Has Bill Pullman Seeking Justice
A24 Films has released the first trailer for their upcoming Western The Ballad of Lefty Brown, which hits theaters this December and could be a dark horse Oscar candidate. Since most of the Oscar candidates won't be released until either November of December, it's tough to tell which films could be contenders or not, but with a stellar cast and a classic revenge Western, it wouldn't be surprising if A24 goes for back-to-back Best Picture Oscars this year, after winning with Moonlight last year. Still, we have a long way to go before the awards season starts coming into focus, but this may very well be one film to keep your eye on.

James Gunn says Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 won’t feature any resurrections

Warning. Spoilers for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 follow…

Over the years, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has developed a bit of a reputation for fake deaths, with the likes of Agent Coulson, Bucky Barnes, Pepper Potts, Loki and Nick Fury all thought to died at one point or another, before making their triumphant and (mostly) unscathed returns.

As a result, death has become pretty meaningless in the McU – although it seems the trend will stop with Yondu, as Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has confirmed that he’s not a fan of resurrecting characters, and that he has no plans to cheapen Yondu’s sacrifice at the climax of Guardians Vol. 2.

“What bothers me is when a character is given a beautiful or powerful death in popular culture, that fulfills a character arc… and then is brought back in a sequel or comic or later episode through some usually ridiculous means because,

James Gunn confirms that Glenn Close was cut from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Despite being initially announced as reprising her role as Nova Prime for the sequel, Guardians of the Galaxy’s Glenn Close was absent from this year’s Vol. 2.

However filmmaker James Gunn has revealed during a fan Q&A that Close was originally set return as the head of the Nova Corps, and that “she had a cameo we didn’t use.”

Close’s Nova Prime is the second cameo to have been cut from the film after Nathan Fillion’s Simon Williams; sadly, neither of these appeared on the Blu-ray bonus features.

It is possible we’ll see the return of Glenn Close’s Nova Prime in Avengers: Infinity War, given that the Nova Corps are currently in possession of the Power Stone, which Thanos is going to need to complete his Infinity Gauntlet.

James Gunn suggests Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will arrive in 2020

We’re a little over a year and a half away from the culmination of Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the release of the as-yet-untitled Avengers 4, and as yet, we’ve got very little in the way of an idea as to what comes next for the McU.

We do know that things will get underway in July 2019 with a sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming, and there’ll be an increased emphasis on the cosmic side of the universe, spearheaded by James Gunn and the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. (which will reportedly set the stage for the next 10 to 20 years of the McU, according to Gunn)

As yet, there’s been no official word as to when we can expect the next Guardians movie, but posting on his Facebook page, Gunn has told a fan that Vol. 3 will be out “in a little under three
