Nicolas Cage joins Oliver Stone’s Snowden film

23 February 2015 11:00 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Nicolas Cage is a Us intelligence officer in the new Oliver Stone film on Edward Snowden. Joseph Gordon-Levitt also stars.

Nicolas Cage has not been in a strong film for a while, yet given the subject matter of his newest project, this is hopefully about to change. Indeed, Cage has been cast in the new Oliver Stone film, Snowden.

On the heels of Edward Snowden’s story striking Oscar gold last night, when Citizenfour took home the statuette for Best Documentary Feature, Stone’s narrative account on the man is taking increasing shape.

Cage has been cast in the role of a former Us intelligence officer that becomes entangled in the Snowden case. This further builds an impressive cast that is led by Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the titular role of the man who leaked classified information about Nsa wiretapping citizens. The ensemble also includes Shailene Woodley, Melissa Leo, Zachary Quinto, »

Nicolas Cage Set For Snowden

23 February 2015 7:31 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Apparently, Nicolas Cage is too good to be subsumed into long casting announcements and needs his own story. All right, so perhaps his deal took a little longer to nail down, but he is indeed joining the cast of Oliver Stone’s Snowden, adding his name to the cast in the role of a former Us intelligence officer.Almost all the rest of the cast for Stone’s latest was revealed yesterday, with Zachary Quinto, Melissa Leo, Tom Wilkinson, Rhys Ifans and Joely Richardson joining Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Shailene Woodley and Timothy Olyphant in the based-on-truth drama about the Nsa whistleblower. Stone is making the film in Munich, having bought up two prime sources for his film: Time Of The Octopus, a novel by Snowden’s Russian lawyer Anatoly Kucherena, giving him access to the story of the whistleblower who reluctantly sought asylum in Russia and had to wait to see »

DVD Review – Serena (2014)

23 February 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Serena, 2014.

Directed by Susanne Bier.

Starring Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Rhys Ifans and Sean Harris.

Synopsis:

In Depression-era North Carolina, the future of a timber empire becomes increasingly complicated when its owner marries.

What a strange Serena Williams biopic this is. There’s practically no tennis.

In its place are breathtaking panoramic shots of the Smoky Mountains. They live up to their name; there’s smoke everywhere. It creeps up hillsides, engulfing trees and wildlife without discrimination. There’s a metaphor in there somewhere: losing sight of your original intention, getting pulled under by the personal, how unedited versions of these landscapes should be uploaded as desktop wallpapers – they are truly majestic, for which cinematographer Morten Søborg deserves considerable credit.

It’s just a shame the rest of the film gets in the way.

Serena is an overwrought, poorly structured melodrama that works against its characters’ relationships. Individually, the players »
