Pat Healy Is a Sad ‘Man in Ceiling’ in Wacky Short Film About Temp Job From Hell — Watch
Actor and filmmaker Pat Healy seems to pop up everywhere, but a corporate office ceiling is a new surprise — even for him. Hot off a bit reporter part in Steven Spielberg’s “The Post,” Healy lends his oddball comedic talents to “Man in Ceiling,” a short film that turns office mundanity into the loopy stuff of surreal comedy. Healy stars as a disgruntled office worker shirking his responsibilities by hiding in the ceiling above his desk.

It’s the kind of role Healy excels in; that ubiquitous face practically screams disheveled corporate renegade. A filmmaker in his own right, Healy recently brought his madcap sensibilities to “Take Me,” which he directed and starred in opposite Taylor Schilling (“Orange is the New Black”).

“The Post” is another rousing outing from Steven Spielberg

The embargo has finally lifted, ladies and gentlemen! We can at long last discuss The Post, the new Steven Spielberg film, starring Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep. Yes, this super fast tracked project is not only complete, but has been screening pretty consistently for critics, guild members, and the Academy itself. The National Board of Review fell in love with it, and plenty of other voters are about to. We’re a month or so away from release still, but the buzz is building in a big way. Once again, Spielberg has delivered the goods. No one in the industry makes it look as easy as he does. He truly is a master at work. To begin, this is what IMDb regales us with, in terms of plot: “A cover-up that spanned four U.S. Presidents pushed the country’s first female newspaper publisher and a hard-driving editor to join

A cover-up that spanned four U.S. Presidents pushed the country’s first female newspaper publisher and a hard-driving editor to join an unprecedented battle between journalist and government. Inspired by true events.

Prior to a New York Times exposé detailing Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara’s incompetence and mishandling of the Vietnam War, he tells owner of the Washington Post and trusting friend Katharine Graham (the classy and talented Meryl Streep gunning for her 21st Oscar nomination) that she is going to read some unflattering things about him tomorrow in the papers. Now, it’s obviously not a shocking reveal of numerous sexual assault allegations,

Take Me Review: The Perfect Post-Thanksgiving Dinner Movie

Take Me Review: The Perfect Post-Thanksgiving Dinner Movie
It's Thanksgiving. You and the family have just finished your meal. And you want some lighter fare, suffering from the tryptophan buffet you just willingly engorged yourself with. The kids are off playing on their tablets. The game is over, and the adults need a swift 80 minute distraction before tearing into pumpkin pie and cobbler. Why not check out one of Netflix's looked-over gems from the past few months. It's the perfect little slice of desert before the desert. Don't spend hours searching the queue, arguing over what you're going to watch. Just select Take Me and go!

Take Me, while not a Netflix Original (it is only "Presented By Netflix"), is a home run for all the parties concerned. This whimsical tale of a simulated kidnapping gone very, very wrong is probably the first film to truly pull off this motif since 1986's Ruthless People or 1988's A Fish Called Wanda.

Cinepocalypse 2017 Review: Psychopaths is Mickey Keating’s Most Ambitious Film Yet

  • DailyDead
At the age of just 26 or 27, writer/director Mickey Keating already has five feature films under his belt. These aren’t just homemade backyard projects shot with his buddies for $200, either; these are movies with major stars of the indie horror scene (Graham Skipper, Lauren Ashley Carter, Pat Healy, Larry Fu**ing Fessenden) and getting actual distribution through companies like Glass Eye Pix and IFC Midnight. While his previous films have shown major chops behind the camera, they’ve also all had an air of familiarity about them; Keating is a director who wears his influences proudly, and some of his past work has played more like him riffing on an existing piece than like something borne of his own interests and obsessions.

With his fifth feature, Psychopaths, Keating has really come into his own as a director. It is his most original, most ambitious, most audacious work to date

‘Tales From Beyond the Pale’ Season IV Ends With ‘Conviction’ and ‘The Vampire Party’ — Plus a Listening Party
As you may have noticed, tomorrow is Halloween.

“Me and my buddy went to this very eccentric home of vampire enthusiasts and had a most unusual evening,” recalls Fessenden when asked about “Vampire Party,” which he wrote by his lonesome. “It was a story I often told in celebration of the wacky things one can get up to to promote a movie, and the crazy subcultures in old Hollywood.” About two indie filmmakers promoting their horror movie when they

Steven Spielberg sets composers for Ready Player One and The Papers

Variety is reporting that the ever-busy Steven Spielberg is set to reunite with John Williams on his Pentagon Papers movie The Papers, which will mark their 28th collaboration. However, with post-production on The Papers set to take place alongside Spielberg’s next film Ready Player One, Williams will be sitting out the latter, with Alan Silvestri stepping in to compose the score for the book adaptation.

Steven and John decided Alan Silvestri was the perfect choice for ‘Ready Player One’ since Steven has worked (as a producer) with Alan on the Back to the Future films in the 1980s and Alan has scored other films for Steven’s Amblin and DreamWorks,” reads the official statement from Amblin Entertainment.

Williams, who is currently working on the score for December’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, has worked with Spielberg on all but two of the filmmaker’s movies – The Color Purple and Bridge of Spies.

Interview: Director Pat Healy of ‘Take Me’ at Chicago Critics Film Festival on May 15, 2017

Chicago – An original voice, in an original conceptual movie, is a rare category of cinema art. Director and lead actor Pat Healy, working from a script from Mike Makowsky, has fashioned “Take Me,” a thriller about kidnapping and having the tables turned.

Healy is Ray, a kind of loser who stumbles upon a new business… providing kidnapping scenarios for willing clients. Business is bad – there is an hilarious opening with Ray trying to get a loan from a local bank – until a new client emerges (Taylor Schilling of ‘Orange is the New Black’), who wants more from the service than the faux kidnapper had ever provided. The film, rich with tones of darkness and redemption, is exquisitely fashioned by Pat Healy, in his first feature length film as a director.

Tribeca 2017 Review Round-Up: The Endless, Take Me, and Tilt

Over the last few weeks, the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival celebrated the best that the indie filmmaking world has to offer, and during the fest’s run, I had the chance to check out just a few of the genre-related offerings on Tribeca’s lineup: The Endless from Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson, Pat Healy’s feature film directorial debut, Take Me, and the psychological thriller Tilt from Kasra Farahani. Read on for my thoughts on this trio of thought-provoking cinematic treats.

The Endless: Before I start discussing The Endless, I want to take a moment and say that I feel like the best way to experience the latest from Benson and Moorhead is to go in knowing as little as possible, because that’s how I saw it, and it 110% blew my mind. That being said, part of my job is reviewing movies, so I promise I will keep

Chicago Critics Film Festival 2017 – Take Me (2017)

Take Me, 2017.

Directed by Pat Healy.

Starring Taylor Schilling, Pat Healy, Alycia Delmore, and Jim O’Heir.

Synopsis:

Ray is a fledgling entrepreneur who specializes in high-end simulated abductions. He jumps at the chance when a mysterious client contracts him for a weekend kidnapping with a handsome payday at the end. But the job isn’t all that it seems.

Take Me is quite the madcap ride; it puts an interesting spin on bizarre roleplay fantasies that some people crave for whatever strange reason. Typically, these dream scenarios are usually built into relationships or something more sexual (hello Bdsm and the continuously awful crop of Fifty Shades nonsense that hell-spawned from it), but never before have I heard of a person actively employing someone to simulate a real-life kidnapping of him or herself. The desire can be for numerous reasons, ranging from fulfilling a demented and honestly disturbing pleasure of danger and pain,
