Surviving Desire: The Cinema of David Mackenzie

21 hours ago | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Spread

Hold me. Thrill me. Kiss me. Kill me. The films of David Mackenzie envision life as a never-ending whirlwind of experience, a cyclone of emotion constantly spinning out of control. These feelings are heightened and externalized through melodrama, yet they can also simmer under the surface like hidden secrets waiting to explode. While his exhausted characters never fit into one social class – pop stars, artisan chefs and thuggish bruisers all take center stage – each sees the world in a similarly warped way. They are confused by inadequacy, defined by repression, purposefully solitary, and bordering on self-destruction. But most importantly they are also eager to transcend this unhappiness, especially after finding inspiration in another equally tormented individual. One must simply desire the opportunity to grow, to live, to survive.

Mackenzie’s key battleground is the romantic relationship. Incited by knowing eye contact and waged through a sensual collision of skin, »

Exodus: Gods and Kings Preview: Can Ridley Scott Make a Contemporary Biblical Epic?

17 October 2014 10:16 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

We at Lr had a chance to check out about 40 minutes of director Ridley Scott’s new historical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings last night. Here’s what we thought.

The series of clips shown went from massive battles to small, intimate character moments that really tried to give you a sense of the grand scale the film is trying to work on as well as the personal story it’s trying to tell beneath it. Bible stories seem to be the new avenue for filmmakers to go down these days, and though Darren Aronofsky’s Noah left a little to be desired it looks like Ridley Scott is embracing his usual overblown sword and sandals method to tell this timeless biblical tale of Moses and Ramses.

The first clip began with both Moses (Christian Bale) and Ramses (Joel Edgerton) preparing to go off to war. We’ll get to »

Ynms: Tomorrowland, American Sniper, Black Sea

11 October 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Tonight is the "Closing Night" of the New York Film Festival (Birdman and I'm happy to report that it's wondrous) though there are screenings tomorrow making the title only honorary, really. We'll wrap up soon with Inherent Vice and Birdman thoughts and things we learned at the fest. All the screenings and the first wave of Oscar seeking interviews (coming at'cha soon) have left us seriously behind on the matter of movie trailers / teasers so here are three which you may well have seen already but let's discuss in abbreviated Yes No Maybe So fashion.

Tomorrowland

Yes - This does what teasers, hell trailers themselves, should do: intrigues but doesn't give the game away. If only full trailers would follow suit. Come on studios: Help moviegoers rediscover a little something called curiousity. 

No - It's not really fair since he's had a couple of low key years but I'm feeling Clooney fatigue for some reason. »

‘Starred Up’ Review

8 October 2014 11:43 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Jack O’Connell, Ben Mendelsohn, Rupert Friend, Gilly Gilchrist, Frederick Schmidt, Edna Caskey, Darren Hart, Raphael Sowole, Duncan Airlie James, Anthony Welsh, David Ajala, Jerome Bailey | Written by Jonathan Asser | Directed by David Mackenzie

There are movies that make you think. There are movies that make you question. There are movies that engage you to such a degree you are left emotionally exhausted when all is said and done. Then there are movies like Starred Up that make you do all three and so much more. Director David Mackenzie and screen writer Jonathan Asser have come together to create authentic take on the harsh conditions of prison life in Britain. Raw, brutal, and surprisingly heartfelt it examines the person behind the prison number. Never does it ever attempt to forgive its characters malicious actions—rather it brings us into the hellacious depths of their unruly world.

Jude Law hunts for Hitler's gold in submarine thriller Black Sea

2 October 2014 3:05 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Jude Law is on a quest for sunken treasure in the trailer for the action thriller Black Sea.

Due in theatres in January, the film is directed by Kevin Macdonald and stars Law as a down-on-his-luck submarine captain.   He put his career first, losing his family along the way, and now the only way to get back on his feet is to assemble a group of sea-worthy men – all misfits, of course - to venture out into the murky depths of the Black Sea, the final resting spot of one of Hitler’s U-boats.  The treasure at hand is none other than bars of gold, up for grabs by whoever is brave enough to retrieve it from the sea bed.  Of course, when treasure is involved, there’s bound to be some double crossing as greed takes hold and it’s every man for himself.

'Black Sea' trailer promises Jude Law, U-boats, and Nazi gold

2 October 2014 8:01 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Could January 2015 be the best January ever? January is traditionally the dump month, when last minute Oscar hopefuls gain steam and studios fill multiplex screens with movies they'd prefer not to have on their permanent records. But that's all changing thanks to an overloaded release schedule. Today, if a studio has a good movie, it makes more sense to put it out when someone has time to actually see it then stack on top of industry-approved seasonal dates. A radical practice. Take "Black Sea," a submarine thriller starring Jude Law. Based on the first trailer, it's a claustrophobic ticking clock drama with a little bit of pulp ("How much Nazi gold is in that sub?" "$182 million!") and a lotta bit of Scottish accents. It's not bombastic enough to go toe-to-toe with the "Avengers 2," nor does it have the inherent prestige factor to duke it out with Harvey Weinstein during the October-through-December window. »

Black Sea Trailer Puts Jude Law and His Submarine Crew on the Hunt for Nazi Gold

2 October 2014 7:37 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The first trailer for the submarine thriller Black Sea has gone online. I love submarine movies, and Kevin Macdonald's Black Sea has been on my (no pun intended) radar since production began over a year ago.  Jude Law stars as a rogue captain who puts together a misfit crew to recover lost Nazi gold from a sunken U-boat, but the claustrophobia becomes even tighter as the crewmates turn on each other in the hope of gaining a greater share of the treasure.  Judging by the trailer, this movie isn't going to upend the genre, but it could be a great addition, especially since the cast includes not only Law, but also Scoot McNairy, Ben Mendelsohn, and Michael Smiley. Hit the jump to check out the Black Sea trailer.  The film opens January 23, 2015, and also stars David Threlfall, Grigoriy Dobrygin, Konstantin Khabenskiy, Sergey Kolesnikov, Sergey Puskepalis, and Jodie Whitaker.

Jude Law’s On An Underwater Treasure Hunt In First Trailer For Black Sea

2 October 2014 7:32 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Kevin McDonald’s upcoming submarine actioner, Black Sea, has been coasting on the waves for some time now. If you haven’t yet heard of the movie, that’s not unlikely. The film went into production last August, and it’s been a year since we were first granted a still from the movie. Following on from the news in July revealing a release date, Universal Pictures have delivered the first trailer for their underwater adventure thriller.

Black Sea enlists Jude Law as Captain Robinson, who leads a murky treasure hunt. Sent to commandeer a half-British, half-Russian crew tasked with salvaging a lost sunken submarine full of gold, one of Hitler’s u-boats crammed with $582 million in gold, Robinson finds more in store than he bargained for.

There’s plenty to get excited about judging by this first footage. From director Kevin MacDonald (The Last King Of Scotland, How I Live Now »

First trailer for Black Sea, starring Jude Law

2 October 2014 7:27 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Jude Law goes Scottish and searches for Nazi gold in the forthcoming thriller, Black Sea. Here's the first trailer...

Director Kevin Macdonald has a varied range of films behind him, from the documentary One Day In September to the dramas The Last King Of Scotland and How I Live Now. Black Sea marks another change of pace: described as an adventure thriller, it stars Jude Law as a submarine captain who leads a furtive mission to find sunken Nazi gold on the sea floor. As the group nears their shiny prize, they begin to turn on each other, with murderous results.

Law, replete with Scottish accent, is joined by a great cast, including Ben Mendelsohn, Michael Smiley, David Threlfall and Scoot McNairy. Macdonald's direction looks tense and claustrophobic, while the plot has a hint of The Treasure Of The Sierra Madre about it.

Black Sea is out in UK cinemas on the 5th December. »
