Hannibal, Ep. 3.04, “Aperitivo” explores the need for revenge

26 June 2015 5:05 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hannibal, Season 3, Episode 4, “Aperitivo”

Written by Nick Antosca and Bryan Fuller & Steve Lightfoot

Directed by Marc Jobst

Airs Thursdays at 10pm (Et) on NBC

Four episodes into season three, the reverberations of the season two finale are still being felt. Given the monumental nature of “Mizumono”, that feels appropriate, and the first trio of episodes of season three have dealt primarily with the Red Dinner’s emotional and psychological fallout for Hannibal and Will. These episodes have been full of dream imagery and projections, exploring the psychology of these characters and meditating upon their decisions and pasts through recurring visual motifs and stylish directorial flourishes more than dialogue or plot. With “Aperitivo”, that changes, giving audiences a much more concrete look at the fallout of season two for the characters left in Baltimore.

“Aperitivo” takes viewers through Hannibal’s victims one by one, starting with Chilton and Mason before moving on to Will, »

Hannibal – Season 3 Episode 4 Review

26 June 2015 11:14 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ricky Church reviews the fourth episode of Hannibal season 3…

While ‘Aperitivo’ was another relatively quiet episode, it provided a lot of forward momentum on the big threat of the season and everyone else’s story. That’s saying something considering this episode was an extended flashback dealing with the fallout of Season 2’s finale, finally revealing the fates of all involved in the bloodbath and how they got to where they currently are now.

The whole format of the episode was actually typical of a regular premiere. This is most likely the episode many people expected to get at the start of Season 3 as it revealed what happened to everyone in the months following Hannibal’s escape. Its interesting then that this was saved for the fourth episode, letting the audience focus on Hannibal’s free reign in Europe while questioning what had become of everyone else.

"Hannibal" Review & Recap: Season 3, Episode 4, "Apertivo"

26 June 2015 7:21 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Gina Torres and Lawrence Fishburne in "Hannibal"Photo: Brooke Palmer / NBC It felt like tonight's episode of "Hannibal" would have been better served as the first or second episode in the season, not the fourth as most everything it covered was pretty much well established to this point. It wasn't a bad episode by any means, it merely seemed to stop the season in its tracks. Perhaps, however, that's a good thing, offering anyone that wasn't up-to-date a chance to play catch up while offering fans (or #Fannibals as has become the popular Twitter hashtag following the show's cancellation at NBC) an emotionally charged episode as Jack (Lawrence Fishburne) finally must say goodbye to Bella (Gina Torres) and Alana Bloom (Caroline Dhavernas) makes a strong first appearance in this third season. Serving as a prequel to everything that's taken place so far this year, the fourth episode of this third season, »

Review: 'Hannibal' - 'Aperitive': Cripples, bastards and broken things

25 June 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Hey, there was a new "Hannibal" on tonight! Last night, I spoke with Bryan Fuller about the show's potential future, or lack thereof, somewhere other than NBC, and now I have a review of tonight's episode coming up just as soon as I politely refuse your offer of chocolate... "I know what's coming for you, Will. You don't have to die on me, too." -Jack Last week's episode pushed the show's abstract style to its limit, where the "pretentious art film" approach Bryan Fuller understandably favors for this show left things feeling more inert and confusing than enticing. "Aperitive" isn't exactly the show doing a stylistic 180 and resembling an episode of "NCIS." It bounces back and forth in time, it plays with characters' appearances and how we are allowed to see them(*), and it lets other characters' imagination overtake the narrative in a way that usually only Will's does.

"Hannibal" Review & Recap: Season 3, Episode 3, "Secondo"

18 June 2015 8:45 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Mads Mikkelsen in "Hannibal"Photo: Brooke Palmer / NBC I can't be certain on this, but was last week's episode the first episode of "Hannibal" to not include someone's deathc I only ask because this week's episode, titled "Secondo" made up for that missing aspect of last week's episode as not one, but two characters find themselves on the wrong side of pointy objects. This marks the third episode of this third season to be directed by Vincenzo Natali and he's toned down his visual flair here, though he's still fond of reflections, be they in knives or liquid, using them to move from one scene to the next. Though, can we all agree the best scene transition was from the cutting of a bird's leg to the chopping of a human hand as Hannibal prepares the forearm of the late professor Sogliato (Rinaldo Rocco) into a delectable carpaccio(c) to »

Bryan Fuller Talks Hannibal Season 3

4 June 2015 6:26 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

With Hannibal Season 3 premiering tonight on NBC, we recently participated in an interview call with Hannibal showrunner Bryan Fuller, who teased what we can expect to see this season, including Bedelia and Hannibal's relationship and much more.

Bryan on the relationship between Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) and Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier (Gillian Anderson) in season three:

Bryan Fuller: Well, really it kind of boils down to this fabulousness of Gillian Anderson and more of her is always a good thing. And we had so much fun working together in the first two seasons and she’s such an iconic actress and brings such a specific energy to the show that it seems like a really logical next step for the series to flush out that relationship expanded and get more of the chemistry between Mads Mikkelsen and Gillian Anderson.

There is a genuine connection between Bedelia and Hannibal. »

Cannes Film Review: ‘Macadam Stories’

31 May 2015 10:40 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Linked by a housing project, six characters in varying degrees of desperation forge unexpected friendships in “Macadam Stories,” a slight comedy from French helmer-author Samuel Benchetrit, whose book “Asphalt Chronicles” inspired two of the three strands. Sometimes funny, and always, insistently low-key, this deadpan offering presents a gentle cross-section of life in public housing, a milieu that — per press notes — Benchetrit knows from childhood. This unassuming pic will attract fests looking a light slot-filler, but like previous features from the director (“I Always Wanted to Be a Gangster,” which won a screenwriting award at Sundance), it’s unlikely to make much of a splash Stateside.

Before it reveals that it will crosscut among three stories, the movie begins with residents of the housing project meeting to vote on an elevator repair. Sternkowitz (Gustave Kervern) is the only one reluctant to pay. He asks why he — as a resident of the »

Cannes Unveils 2015 Official Selection Lineup

16 April 2015 3:12 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Star-studded English-language dramas from Todd Haynes, Gus Van Sant, Denis Villeneuve, Justin Kurzel, Paolo Sorrentino and Matteo Garrone will vie for the Palme d’Or alongside new films by Valerie Donzelli, Jacques Audiard, Hou Hsiao-hsien and Jia Zhangke at the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival, which unveiled its official selection lineup on Thursday.

While there are only two U.S. directors in competition — Haynes with “Carol,” a 1950s lesbian love story starring Cate Blanchett, and Van Sant with his suicide drama “The Sea of Trees,” pairing Matthew McConaughey and Ken Watanabe — this year’s Palme race looks to feature more high-profile Hollywood talent than any in recent memory. Canada’s Villeneuve (“Prisoners,” “Enemy”) will bring his Mexican drug-cartel drama “Sicario,” with Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin, while Australia’s Kurzel (“The Snowtown Murders”) secured a Palme berth for “Macbeth,” his Shakespeare adaptation toplining Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard. »

Hannibal Season 3 Directors Include Neil Marshall & Vincenzo Natali, Four Episode Titles Revealed

23 March 2015 4:23 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Neil Marshall and Vincenzo Natali: horror hounds know the former for his directing of The Descent, Dog Soldiers, Doomsday, and more, while the latter brought Splice, Haunter, Cube, and the "U is for Utopia" segment of ABCs of Death 2 to life on the big screen. These two creative horror genre minds bring their skills to the always dangerous dinner table of NBC's Hannibal, as showrunner Bryan Fuller has revealed Marshall and Natali directed select episodes of the third season. Also unveiled are the titles of four season three episodes, one of which should sound very familiar to fans of Thomas Harris' 1981 novel and the 2002 (second) film adaptation of the same name.

On his Twitter page, Fuller announced that Vincenzo Natali directed the first three episodes of Hannibal Season 3, respectively titled "Antipasto", "Primavera", and "Secondo." Fuller then revealed that Neil Marshall helmed "The Great Red Dragon", the eighth episode of season three. »
