Tiff Exclusive: It's All Water Under The Bridge In Clip From Brit Crime Thriller 'Hyena' Starring Stephen Graham

2 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

London's seedy nightlife, grimy pubs, and various lowlifes have provided the British crime thriller genre no shortage of classics over the years. And looking to join the ranks of "Get Carter" and "The Long Good Friday" is Gerard Johnson's "Hyena," set to make its international premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. We have an exclusive clip that takes you inside the film's milieu. Starring Peter Ferdinando, Stephen Graham, Neil Maskell, Richard Dormer, Elisa Lasowski and MyAnna Buring, the story follows Logan, a crooked undercover cop who's pinned between the Turkish criminals he's betrayed, the Albanians he's now siding with, and an internal affairs investigation from his ostensible colleagues. All of this transpires while Logan tries to save a woman sold into sexual slavery. In this clip, you'll get a sense of the tension and atmosphere Johnson looks to bring to this film. "Hyena" will screen at Tiff in the Vanguard. »

Watch the First Stunning Slow-Mo Clip from Undercover Cop Thriller ‘Hyena’

16 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Writer-director Gerard Johnson’s sophomore feature, starring Peter Ferdinando as a corrupt London cop, is set to screen at Tiff next month, and the first stunning clip from the film has been released. According to THR, the pic owes a heavy debt to Gaspar Noe in one violent encounter; meanwhile Michael Mann and Nicolas Winding Refn duly pop up elsewhere in the palette. Tiff programmer Colin Geddes says director Johnson gives us a worthy UK cousin to Abel Ferrara’s Bad Lieutenant and The Guardian calls it an ambitiously scaled police-corruption thriller. Watch the clip below. The film also stars Stephen Graham (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), MyAnna Buring (Downton Abbey), Neil Maskell (Wild Bill), Elisa Lasowski (Somers Town) and Richard Dormer (Good Vibrations). Watch the clip below.

Sarajevo: co-producing with the UK

22 August 2014 2:03 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

UK industry representatives arrive in Sarajevo as part of CineLink Partner Country initiative

Sarajevo’s CineLink Partner Country Initiative has been running for more than a decade, systematically strengthening the working relationship between the Southeast European film industry and its international counterparts.

This year’s Partner Country is the UK, and a delegation of around 20 British producers, sales agents, distributors, agents and festival representatives will be present at CineLink for four intensive days of meeting regional film makers and promoting the possibilities of cooperation with the UK. 

As an introduction for the producers from Southeast Europe attending the festival, Isabel Davis, the head of international film fund at the BFI, held a presentation of its recently established minority co-production fund.

“The UK has had a good, long-standing relationship with this festival and this region, and it felt very timely to come here as a partner country,” Davis said.

“While the UK is very talent-driven and actually getting »

Film Review: ‘Hyena’

18 June 2014 7:48 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Any director who titles his film “Hyena” is setting himself up for critical wisecracks about creative scavenging — and true enough, Gerard Johnson’s ultraviolent crooked-cop thriller wears its plethora of genre influences, from Nicolas Winding Refn to “The Sweeney,” prominently on its sleeve. What “Hyena” lacks in invention, however, it makes up for in technical bravado and geographical specificity, its vivid West London milieu coloring a stock story of a corrupt narcotics detective (the excellent Peter Ferdinando) whose chickens come home most bloodily to roost. A punchy but distinctly downbeat curtain-raiser for this year’s Edinburgh fest, Johnson’s stylish sophomore feature reps a commercial challenge theatrically — too oblique for the exploitation crowd, too grimy for upscale auds — but should continue to attract strong-stomached admirers in ancillary.   

While frequently blunt in expression, Johnson’s script is never so literal as to directly articulate its title; the bottom-feeding metaphor is pretty »

Eiff 2014: Hyena Review

18 June 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Gerard Johnson

Starring: Peter Ferdinando, Stephen Graham, Neil Maskell, Elisa Lasowski, MyAnna Buring, Richard Dormer, Gordon Brown, Tony Pitts

Certificate: Tbc

Running Time: 112 minutes

Synopsis: Good policing doesn’t necessarily mean doing everything by the book. But as the business of crime in London turns to favour the Albanians and Turks, how does a “good” policeman survive?

Gerard Johnson’s Hyena opened the 2014 Edinburgh Film Festival tonight ahead of 12 days of a range of national and international premieres and feature films for festival-goers to enjoy. His previous feature Tony screened at the festival in 2009 to mixed reviews and his latest addition to the crime drama genre will not likely earn him many fans.

A run-of-the-mill plot sees undercover policeman Michael (Peter Ferdinando) sent to investigate the murder of a Turkish drug dealer for which Michael already has connections to the alleged killers, try to help a woman being used »

Eiff 2014: Hyena Review

18 June 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Opening to the coolest title card you’ll see all year, hopes are initially high that Gerard Johnson’s sophomore effort is on track to be a stylish British crime thriller. Drenched in blue (both neon and officers), soon after an early slo-mo drug bust set to The The’s eerie, pulsating electronic beats, it becomes clear this is not the case.

Detective Sergeant Michael Logan (Peter Ferdinando) has long been scratching the backs of drug traders, much to his financial advantage. But when one of his contacts is brutally murdered before his eyes, the rules change and Logan is no longer calling the shots. To add to the copper’s newfound paranoia, he also finds himself investigated for corruption as David Knight (Stephen Graham) turns up to run the show – and boy do this pair have history.

Considering Logan heads up the drugs squad, his team don’t appear »

Eiff 2014: ‘Hyena’ is a brutal example of British nihilism

18 June 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hyena

Written and directed by Gerard Johnson

UK, 2014

Hyena, the second feature from London-born director Gerard Johnson, opens with a slow motion raid on a neon-blue nightclub. The four men who carry it out are inebriated – a mixture of drink and drugs – and meet wordlessly en route in a small, plain car. When they park in an alleyway and pull on police gear, your first instinct is that they’re faking it, putting on masks. But it transpires that they really are policeman, just the kind that employ violence indiscriminately and abuse their authority to take a cut from local gangs. As one character later comments, you’d think policemen like them wouldn’t exist.

This opening sequence is filmed with a measured sense of detachment. The club is all light and movement; the blows, slowed down, don’t seem to connect, even as the bodies fly across the floor. »

A few days ago we reported that Hyena had been chosen as the opening film for this year's Edinburgh International Film Festival.

Sounds dangerous.The film also stars Kill List's Neil Maskell and MyAnna Buring, as well as Stephen Graham and Richard Dormer. It's all directed by Gerard Johnson, making a return to the Festival after his debut, Tony, did well there »

Jimmy McGovern tackles Australia's dark past

3 April 2014 5:31 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

A seven-part series set during the turbulent period of the establishment of the penal colony in Sydney in 1788 may seem a stretch for Liverpool-born and based writer Jimmy McGovern.

Yet Banished, which starts shooting in Sydney on Monday, deals with themes the writer has often explored in the UK series he's created in a distinguished 30- year career.

.Jimmy.s stories are about the moral complexities which human beings face when they are in difficult situations,. his producing partner Sita Williams tells If. .He asks the audience: .What would you have done in that situation? Would you have done it any differently?..

David Wenham heads the large Australian/British cast as Governor Arthur Phillip, a pragmatic idealist who hopes to turn the penal colony into a land of opportunity for all. Joseph Milson portrays his nemesis Major Ross, who believes the only chance of survival is to rule with an iron fist. »
