Jeremy Renner, Michael Cuesta Spotlight Gary Webb’s Story and Family at ‘Kill the Messenger’ Premiere

10 October 2014 5:28 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jeremy Renner and director Michael Cuesta braved the red carpet on Thursday night for the premiere of their gritty new docudrama “Kill the Messenger,” based on the life of late San Jose Mercury News journalist Gary Webb.

Webb’s stories exposed connections between South Central crack cartels, and CIA-funded paramilitaries in Nicaragua and solicited a shaming campaign from other papers (and, by some reports, government intimidation) before he took his own life in 2004.

“The thing is, Gary actually wasn’t a whistleblower,” said “Homeland” veteran Cuesta. “He was a journalist. He was just doing his f—ing job. Before the script came to my attention, I didn’t know the grind that he went through, the discreditation campaign, the price that he paid; so that really made me want to make this movie. There’s a sense of knowing that this thing he’s tapped into is way bigger, but he doesn’t stop. »

Kill The Messenger – The Review

9 October 2014 1:56 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“Stop the presses” was a line of dialogue used in all manner of thrillers and mysteries throughout Hollywood’s Golden age as a reflection of the movies’ love affair with newspapers and crusading reporters. Now this romance has had its bumps, since for every The Front Page or His Girl Friday, there’s a Citizen Kane who created news events to sell copy. But overall, the seekers of truth, the reporters have been the heroes in cinema (is it any wonder that Superman’s human disguise is that of “mild, mannered reporter for a great metropolitan newspaper”?). One of the best examples may be 1976′s All The President’S Men with Woodward and Bernstein as an investigative dynamic duo who would follow every lead, turn over every rock in order to publish the facts. The fourth estate isn’t what it used to be in today’s world what with »

The Tragedy of Gary Webb Stings Even When Kill the Messenger Flags

7 October 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

It was a mystery that reporter Gary Webb would have jumped on: a man who'd made powerful enemies allegedly committing suicide with two gunshots to the head. The tragedy is that Webb was the deceased. Michael Cuesta's earnest, ire-inducing Kill the Messenger is a David-and-Goliath story where truth is the slingshot — a fragile weapon that needs to score a fatal hit before the big guy gets mad. Miss, and you'll get crushed.

The giant is the CIA. In 1996, Webb published a thunderbolt piece in the San Jose Mercury News connecting the facts in a conspiracy that linked the government to the Nicaraguan Contras to the crack dealers of South Central Los Angeles. As the movie has it, after a tip from a sexy informant named Coral (Paz Vega) trying to keep her boyfriend »

Crack is Whack: Cuesta Revisits Contras Affair as Political Thriller

Though he has several films under his belt, director Michael Cuesta has probably made more of an impression in television over the past decade, though that may change with the reception of his latest, Kill the Messenger, a smartly layered tale based on a media minefield from the mid 1990s. Presented as a mixture of journalistic woe and political conspiracy, a brightly scrubbed cast and a tightly wound pace manage to make the best use of its running time, even though the material could have afforded to take more time to justifiably mine the depths of its implications. But, based on two books, one of them by the deceased journalist at the center of the tale, Cuesta stays true to a specific point of view to concoct an unnerving exploration of a matter swept too conveniently under the rug.

Rio De Janeiro — Boarding late in the day, Ron Perlman (“Hellboy,” “Sons of Anarchy,” “Drive”) has completed the key cast of Alfonso Pineda Ulloa’s “The Jesuit,” L.A.-based Mexican producer Alex Garcia’s biggest action-thriller to date at Ag Studios, departing from a Paul Schrader screenplay.

Perlman plays “The Jesuit’s” out-and-out villain.

“As is most always the case, I was impressed by the writing and the people involved in the process,” Perlman commented on his casting.
