Michael Fassbender Brings Charisma To The Eccentric Crime Dramedy ‘Trespass Against Us’ [Review]

20 January 2017 1:55 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In the centerpiece scene of the eccentric UK crime dramedy “Trespass Against Us,” the cocky son of an unlikely mastermind leads his gang on their biggest smash-and-grab yet: driving through the ceiling-to-floor-length front windows of a country estate, and then driving off again with millions of dollars worth of art and antiques. Michael Fassbender plays the heist’s point-man, Chad Cutler, who reluctantly takes the assignment from his dad and boss, Colby (Brendan Gleeson), yet comes to life when he’s behind the wheel of the getaway car, leading the cops on a chase through narrow streets and bumpy fields.

Plot: The heir (Michael Fassbender) to a close-knit community of small-time criminals, tries to break free from the influence of his father (Brendan Gleeson). Review: Trespass Against Us is unusual for a crime drama. Despite some familiar trappings of the genre, most notably a series of kinetic car chases, the emphasis of the film is significantly weighed towards the day-to-day life of Michael Fassbender.s Chad....

Movie Review – Live by Night (2016)

14 January 2017 3:35 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Live by Night, 2016.

Written and Directed by Ben Affleck.

Starring Ben Affleck, Elle Fanning, Zoe Saldana, Sienna Miller, Chis Messina, Robert Glenister, Remo Girone, Chris Cooper, Anthony Michael Hall, Clark Gregg, Max Casella, Miguel J. Pimentel, Titus Welliver, Matthew Maher, and Brendan Gleeson.

Synopsis:

A group of Boston-bred gangsters set up shop in balmy Florida during the Prohibition era, facing off against the competition and the Klu Klux Klan.

Writer, director, star Ben Affleck’s (The Town, ArgoLive by Night suffers from an identity crisis. It doesn’t know if it wants to be a tale of Robin Hood style Prohibition-era mobsters, a classic revenge story, a war between gangsters and the Ku Klux Klan, a battle over turf between Irish and Italian mobs, the startup of a casino, or whatever the other subplots are that I’m forgetting. The point is that Live by Night is a mess structurally and narratively, »

Live By Night – Review

13 January 2017 8:04 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

In a film about starting over and new beginnings, Ben Affleck struggles to breathe life in front of and behind the camera. Written, directed, and starring Affleck, Live By Night is a stylish gangster film that’s so languid and dull that even Affleck’s unnecessary narration throughout the film sounds like he’s falling asleep telling his own tale.

World War I has left Joe Coughlin (Affleck) jaded and emotionally wounded. The son of a lawman (Brendan Gleeson) follows down a crime-ridden path of robbery and corruption. Things get dicey when he gets involved with the girl (Sienna Miller) of one of the two big crime bosses in Boston. It’s a tug of war between the Irish and Italian mobs, which eventually extends down to Florida when Joe goes to work for the Italian mob. However, Joe runs into more issues with some locals when he partners with »

Watch two new clips from Ben Affleck’s ‘Live By Night’

13 January 2017 5:22 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Live By Night clips: Ben Affleck adapts, directs and stars in his ambitious period gamgster movie, which is now playing in cinemas across the UK and Ireland.

Watch the new Live By Night clips below.

Arriving in UK cinemas from today is Ben Affleck‘s new film Live By Night, the period gangster epic that he wrote (adapting from Dennis Lehane‘s novel), directed and stars in.

What you put out into this world will always come back to you, but it never comes back how you predict. Taking fatherly advice is not in Joe Coughlin’s nature. Instead, the Wwi vet is a self-proclaimed anti-establishment outlaw, despite being the son of the Boston Police Deputy Superintendent. Joe’s not all bad, though; in fact, he’s not really bad enough for the life he’s chosen. Unlike the gangsters he refuses to work for, he has a sense of justice and an open heart, »

Film Review: Ben Affleck Shoots Nothing But Blanks in ‘Live by Night’

12 January 2017 8:15 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Movies released in the first weeks of January are invariably either awards hopefuls trying to gain momentum or studio dreck being buried in the dead of winter, and quickly forgotten by Valentine’s Day. “Live By Night” aspires to be the former, but ends up being the latter.

Rating: 2.0/5.0

Ben Affleck stars as a Boston stickup man Joe Coughlin, the son of a Boston police officer, who reluctantly becomes part of a gang to get revenge on a rival mob boss. If you think back to the time before “Argo,” “The Town,” and “Gone Baby Gone,” this is the kind of movie you’d think of as a movie directed by Ben Affleck, before that became an improbable sign of quality filmmaking.

Affleck certainly looks the part, with his square jaw and chiseled features, and at times resembles one of those less grotesque Dick Tracy villains. But he seems »

Boss Man: Interview with the director and star of Live by Night, Ben Affleck

Boss Man: Interview with the director and star of Live by Night, Ben AffleckBoss Man: Interview with the director and star of Live by Night, Ben AffleckBob Strauss - Cineplex Magazine1/12/2017 10:01:00 Am

Back in the day, Warner Bros. was known for making tough crime movies and the roster of stars — Humphrey Bogart, James Cagney, Edward G. Robinson, George Raft — who headlined them.

Things have changed a lot in Hollywood since the old contract-player days. However, if there’s any talent who’s identified with a particular studio at the moment, it’s Ben Affleck.

The square-jawed, 44-year-old Bostonian produced, directed and starred in Warner Bros.’ last Best Picture Oscar winner, Argo. He’s also made The Town and The Accountant for the company in the past few years. And Affleck not only plays the most important character, Batman/Bruce Wayne, in Warner’s latest round of DC Comics-based movies, »

Live by Night Review

12 January 2017 3:59 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

Though thriving in its set-up, Ben Affleck’s return to the director’s chair for the first time since the Oscar winning Argo, falls short in its pay-off, becoming needlessly convoluted as we progress throughout the narrative. Attempting to cover so much ground and a myriad of characters and themes, the complexity proves detrimental, which is a shame, for when this feature is simple, it makes for an engaging cinematic experience.

The tale begins in Prohibition Era Boston, and whether he likes it or not, Joe Coughlin (Affleck) is married to the gangster life, mostly due to the fact he’s having an affair with Emma Gould (Sienna Miller), the partner of the uncompromising crime lord Albert White (Robert Glenister), head of the Irish mafia. An outlaw with a cop for a father (Brendan Gleeson), Joe’s secret is uncovered by a rival gang leader, and if »

Hammer Films, Motion Picture Capital team for movie fund

12 January 2017 2:08 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The Hammer Films Eis Fund will back film and TV projects.

UK financier Motion Picture Capital, the Reliance Entertainment Group subsidiary, has formed a partnership with iconic UK production company Hammer Films.

The two companies are teaming on a new film fund called The Hammer Films Eis Fund which will offer private investors the opportunity to invest in a slate of Hammer branded film and TV productions.

The new fund will sit alongside Motion Picture Capital’s existing Eis fund and will only be accessible through a financial adviser.

Iconic horror label Hammer, best known for gothic horror films of the 1950’s including The Curse of Frankenstein, The Mummy and Christopher Lee’s Dracula, made a splash in 2012 with UK horror The Woman In Black, starring Daniel Radcliffe, which became the highest-grossing British horror film on record, taking £21.3m in its home territory and going on to gross over $130m worldwide.

2014 productions included »

‘Live By Night’ review: “Perfectly enjoyable, but lacks pizzazz”

12 January 2017 12:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Live By Night review: Can Ben Affleck follow-up the Oscar success that he enjoyed with Argo with this ambitious period gangster epic?

Read our Live By Night review below.

Live By Night is Ben Affleck‘s fourth film as director after cutting his teeth with his debut feature, the impressive Gone Baby Gone, followed by the slightly superior The Town ,and then the Oscar-winning Argo. One might say that he’s on a cinematic roll, at least behind the camera, so it’s no surprise that he has aimed high for his latest, the period gangster epic Live By Night.

The film opens in 1920s Boston where Affleck’s character, local hoodlum Joe Coughlin is introduced as the son of the local chief of police (and Wwi veteran) Thomas Coughlin, played by Brendan Gleeson. Joe is carrying out petty crimes to finance his lifestyle, gradually moving up the crime food chain. »
