SXSW 2017 Review: From Small Crimes Come Big Troubles

22 March 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Four years ago, Evan Katz made his directorial debut with the pitch-black comedy thriller Cheap Thrills, pitting Pat Healy against Ethan Embry in a diabolical, desperate game of survival. Now Katz has returned to the director's chair with Small Crimes, which takes a decidedly more relaxed, though no less diabolical, approach to pitch-black comic suspense. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau stars as Joe Denton, introduced as he's released from prison and seeks to establish a new life in a small town where he was born and raised. But his old life casts a long shadow; no one looks happy to see him, not even his mother (Jacki Weaver) and father (Robert Forster). Gradually it's revealed that Joe was a police officer until he was busted for corruption and...

Small Crimes Review [SXSW 2017]

20 March 2017 7:10 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With Small Crimes, Evan “E.L.” Katz joins the ranks of Jeremy Saulnier, Macon Blair and others who’ve embrace a dark, degenerate microcosm of rural Americana. It’s a growing trend, where backwoods suburbia morphs into a moral cesspool. Be it Nazi skinheads who board up a punk club or a crooked cop plunged into the same dark waters he previously emerged from, those like Katz have no problem kicking a few horses when they’re down. This makes for dead-end tension and minimal options, but sometimes there’s just a little too much hopelessness to go around. We’re all creatures of habit (can a criminal really reform?), but audiences need something to believe in – that’s the struggle here.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau stars as Joe Denton, a disgraced ex-cop who’s coming off a six-year prison stint. Denton – a father of two – wants nothing more than a second chance. »

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in Official Trailer for E.L. Katz's 'Small Crimes'

12 March 2017 4:54 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"It's happening all over again..." Netflix has unveiled an official trailer for an indie drama titled Small Crimes, from writer/director E.L. Katz, who last made the cult favorite Cheap Thrills. "Game of Thrones" star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau plays a disgraced former cop who returns to his town from a prison sentence for attempted murder, hoping for redemption only to end up trapped in the mess he left behind. This film has an excellent supporting cast including Gary Cole, Jacki Weaver, Robert Forster, Molly Parker, Michael Kinney, Pat Healy, and Macon Blair (who co-wrote the script). This trailer is actually quite impressive - the dialogue is spot on, footage looks great, there's some cool action, I'm definitely intrigued. Here's the first official trailer for E.L. Katz's Small Crimes, direct from Netflix's YouTube: After serving time for the attempted murder of a District Attorney, disgraced former cop Joe Denton (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) returns home looking for redemption. »

After serving time for the attempted murder of a District Attorney, disgraced former cop Joe Denton (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) returns home looking for redemption.

10 March 2017 7:15 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Keep up with the wild and wooly world of indie film acquisitions with our weekly Rundown of everything that’s been picked up around the globe. Check out last week’s Rundown here.

– Grasshopper Film has announced the acquisition of all U.S. distribution rights to Michael Almereyda’s new documentary “Escapes,” a dynamic portrait of Hampton Fancher, executive produced by Wes Anderson. “Escapes” will open in theaters this summer followed by a VOD and Home Video release in the fall.

“Escapes” showcases the storytelling talents of Hampton Fancher, flamenco dancer, film and TV actor, and the unlikely producer and screenwriter of the landmark sci-fi classic “Blade Runner,” as well as screenwriter on the upcoming sequel “Blade Runner 2049.”  Fancher’s running commentary – with a little help from Philip K. Dick and Ridley Scott – works in concert with extensive archival footage as Fancher relates death-defying escapades from a remarkable life. »

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Commits ‘Small Crimes’ in First Trailer for E.L. Katz’s SXSW Premiere

9 March 2017 4:26 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After producing and distributing his Sundance-winning drama I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore, Netflix is staying in the Macon Blair business. Their next collaboration isn’t one he directed, but rather wrote with E.L. Katz, who is making his directorial follow-up after the humorously brutal Cheap Thrills. Small Crimes, which will premiere at SXSW and hit Netflix in April, has now been given its first trailer.

Following Game of Thrones star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as a man who is seeking redemption after he was in jail for attempted murder. When he gets out, his past comes back to haunt him, and as one might expect from this duo, the results look to be violent with a tinge of Coens-esque perceptiveness. Also starring Robert Forster, Gary Cole, Jacki Weaver, Larry Fessenden, Pat Healy, and Blair himself, check out the trailer below.

Gerard Butler joins Snow Ponies

5 February 2017 10:11 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Feb 6, 2017

Gerard Butler is to headline a new action movie by the name of Snow Ponies...

Whilst work continues developing a third film in the Olympus Has Fallen series, Gerard Butler is set to busy himself in a new action movie, Snow Ponies. This one’s written by Pat Healy, and the script for it made the 2006 Blacklist of the best unproduced screenplays. The movie is now set to press ahead, with Darrin Prescott directing. It’ll be his directorial debut, following lots of second unit work on the likes of Captain America: Civil War, John Wick and Drive.

Snow Ponies tells the story of seven hardened men (it says here), as they travel across an unpleasant terrain to deliver a package. No idea what the package is, and seemingly, neither do they. Their journey is punctuated by encounters with bandits and assorted obstacles. And they must choose between loyalty to each other, »

‘Carnage Park’ DVD Review

25 January 2017 6:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Ashley Bell, Pat Healy, James Landry Hébert, Michael Villar, Bob Bancroft, Larry Fessenden, Graham Skipper, Darby Stanchfield, Alan Ruck | Written and Directed by Mickey Keating

Sometimes I’m sure people think I’m just being contrary in my reviews – there are films I like that Many don’t (if you remember the first Frightfest I covered in 2009 you’ll know what I’m talking about); and there are films that are critically acclaimed, be it by other movie blogs, big name film critics, whomever, that just don’t resonate with me. One such film was Mickey Keating’s previous film Pod. However, not to be put off by one bad experience, and thanks to good word of mouth I decided to give his latest film, Carnage Park, a go…

Carnage Park sees two criminals rob a bank and go on the run. However things don’t go to plan »
