‘Inheritance’: Film Review | SXSW 2017

17 March 2017 10:24 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Americans in Belize get up to some highly dysfunctional family dynamics while mourning a father’s sudden death in the ambitious but over-the-top melodrama Inheritance. This writing-and-directing collaboration between Laura E. Davis (Thin Air) and actor Jessica Kaye features an impressively charismatic Kaye as the story’s leading hot mess. Character actor Mark Webber (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) and Daniel Ahearn lend support as her onscreen brother and boyfriend, respectively. After premiering at SXSW this isn’t likely to set the world on fire, but it should catch some attention as a calling card for several of the key talents.

SXSW Film Review: ‘Flesh and Blood’

13 March 2017 10:05 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Commingling elements of fiction and documentary is the trickiest kind of creative alchemy — a challenge “Flesh and Blood” rises to with results that are consistently interesting but somewhat awkward nonetheless. Actor Mark Webber’s fourth feature as writer-director, the story of a man who returns home after a number of years to discover that little has changed, is even more plainly autobiographical than its predecessors, with Webber, his immediate family members and various intimates from his native Philadelphia all playing themselves.

That there’s an authenticity to the results may be unsurprising, but it’s still impressively packaged into an atmospheric, technically well-crafted whole. On the downside, it’s also no surprise that the weakest aspect here is a somewhat half-hearted attempt to impose dramatic structure on the more anecdotal, personality-driven stuff of life itself. If, in the final analysis, this is an experiment that doesn’t quite gel, it »

Flesh and Blood SXSW Review: A Shocking Look at One Man's Fractured Family

13 March 2017 10:43 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sometimes a movie comes along that very quietly defies comparison, even if on the surface, it is something quite simple. Such is the case with director Mark Webber's latest movie Flesh and Blood. While this completely unique and quiet, yet powerful family drama may not be one of the most flashy movies at SXSW this year, make no mistake, this is a movie you will be hearing about over the next few months and one that you should most definitely seek out.

Flesh and Blood centers on Mark Webber, who is playing a version of himself as he explores family dynamics using his real family which includes his mother Cheri Honkala and his brother Guillermo Santos. We follow Mark as he tries to adjust to the real world after being released from prison. Blending real-life situations and fiction (though the line between fiction and reality is very blurry), the »

‘Flesh and Blood’: Film Review | SXSW 2017

11 March 2017 5:15 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Actor-turned-director Mark Webber continues to mine his rough beginnings, and his real-life relationships, in the aptly titled, quietly searing Flesh and Blood. With the key exception of a wordless cameo by Teresa Palmer, Webber’s offscreen partner and one of the film’s producers, nearly everyone plays themselves, or a version of themselves, in the well-observed drama. They include his single mom, Cheri Honkala, who has channeled her difficult experiences into advocacy for the homeless and poor, and who ran for vice president on the 2012 Green Party ticket. She's currently running in a special election for the office of Pennsylvania state »

Mark Webber Joins Joaquin Phoenix in Gus Van Sant’s John Callahan Biopic

2 March 2017 11:35 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Green Room” actor Mark Webber has joined the cast of Gus Van Sant’s “Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot,” a biopic about quadriplegic cartoonist John Callahan.

Joaquin Phoenix is set to play the film’s lead role.  Jonah Hill, Rooney Mara and Jack Black are also on board to star.

Iconoclast and Anonymous Content are producing the film, which is based on Callahan’s autobiography of the same name. The title is taken from one of Callahan’s cartoons, which often touched on taboo topics.

Webber will play Mike, a fellow Vietnam veteran and friend of Phoenix’s character who he meets during his AA meetings.

Callahan became paralyzed following a car accident at the age of 21. He turned to art as a form of therapy, drawing by clutching a pen between his two hands. He died in 2010 at the age of 59.
