Exclusive: Hear 2 Tracks By Nick Cave & Warren Ellis From The ‘Hell Or High Water’ Soundtrack

28 July 2016 8:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Soundtracks don’t get much better or more distinct than Nick Cave and Warren Ellis‘ work as such. The duo has contributed music to films like “Lawless,” “The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford,” “The Road,” “The Proposition,” among others. Their work is often evocatively haunting, gritty and intimate, and they bring those qualities […]

Comic Book Review – James Bond Vol. 1: Vargr

25 July 2016 5:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tony Black reviews James Bond Vol. 1: Vargr…

 After a mission of vengeance in Helsinki, James Bond returns to London and assumesthe workload of a fallen 00 Section agent. His new mission takes him to Berlin, presumably to break up an agile drug-trafficking operation. But Bond has no idea of the forces gathered in secret against him, the full scope of an operation that’s much scarier and more lethal than he could possibly imagine. Berlin is about to catch fire… and James Bond is trapped inside.

After quite some time in the wilderness, James Bond makes a stylish, triumphant return in comic book form with Vargr, the first six-part series now available in trade, from writer Warren Ellis and artist Jason Masters. It’s the opening salvo from Dynamite Entertainment, having purchased a ten year license from Ian Fleming Publications to produce 007 comics, a body who themselves requested Ellis come »

Nobody Likes the Banks in Third Trailer For ‘Hell or High Water’; Preview Nick Cave and Warren Ellis’ Score

19 July 2016 7:19 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The third trailer has been released for Hell or High WaterStarred Up director David Mackenzie‘s familial outlaw tale of revenge and righteousness starring Chris Pine, Ben Foster, and Jeff Bridges. With less than a month away from release, this third trailer, shorter than the previous ones, is a more dialogue-constant approach, filling viewers into the plot instead of the pistolaro stylings of the first two.

We said in our review, “David McKenzie’s Hell or High Water is a gritty, darkly humorous, and fiendishly violent neo-western. Or, in other words, the type of film you might expect from a non-American director working in the United States. It borrows heavily from the Coen brothers and Cormac McCarthy, but it does so very well, thanks largely to a terrific script from Taylor Sheridan, the red-hot actor-turned-screenwriter who broke onto the scene last year with Sicario. It might usher in a »

Dynamite expanding James Bond line, starting with Casino Royale adaptation

18 July 2016 2:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Dynamite Entertainment has announced that it is expanding its line of James Bond comics with adaptations of Ian Fleming’s original novels, starting – appropriately – with 007’s first adventure, Casino Royale.

“When we first announced Warren Ellis’ breakout original James Bond series, we teased that this would only be the beginning of our relationship with the character and the Fleming family, who have been very generous,” said Dynamite CEO and publisher Nick Barrucci. “To announce that we have been granted the rights to adapt the original presentation of 007? It’s incredibly rewarding, as it’s the treasured story that any publisher would wish to add to their library. We have been very fortunate to be granted the rights to do so.”

Casino Royale will be written by Van Jensen (Green Lantern Corps), with art from Matthew Southworth. Expect more details at Comic-Con this week.

Nick Cave and Warren Ellis’ ‘Hell or High Water’ Score: Listen to Two Excerpts from the Stirring Ost

13 July 2016 3:52 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Nick Cave and Warren Ellis’ “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford” soundtrack is among the best, most frequently co-opted film scores of the last decade, and news of further collaboration between the two tends to be welcome among cinephiles. Their latest is David Mackenzie’s “Hell or High Water,” which premiered at Cannes in May ahead of its theatrical release next month. Pitchfork has excerpts from two songs.

Comancheria” and “Mama’s Room” are the tunes in question, both of them readily identifiable as the work of the Bad Seeds bandmates.

[Review] Free State of Jones

23 June 2016 6:58 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

In cinema, differentiating it from most other mediums, one has the ability to give life to drama: time to flesh out characters, fill an unfolding story with intricate details, and capture it in a way that is enthralling to the eyes. Free State of Jones, written and directed by Gary Ross, clearly has a fascinating historical figure at its center and a story that is unlike a multitude of other Civil War era dramas, yet it too often feels (quite literally, in some cases) that we’re retreading the bullet-point notes from a fourth-grade homework assignment rather than experiencing an emotionally rousing, visually distinct journey.

From the get-go, it’s quite easy to tell what attracted the The Hunger Games and Pleasantville director to the material in the first place. In the early-to-mid-1860s, Newton Knight broke free from the Confederate army to form his own company of “deserters,” women, »

[Cannes Review] Hell or High Water

16 May 2016 8:26 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

David McKenzie’s Hell or High Water is a gritty, darkly humorous, and fiendishly violent neo-western. Or, in other words, the type of film you might expect from a non-American director working in the United States. It borrows heavily from the Coen brothers and Cormac McCarthy, but it does so very well, thanks largely to a terrific script from Taylor Sheridan, the red-hot actor-turned-screenwriter who broke onto the scene last year with Sicario. It might usher in a new chapter of the Cambridge-born director’s career having come back strong in 2013 directing an inspired Jack O’Connell in Starred Up. Indeed, this relocation to the States should go some way to explaining an enjoyably plastic impression of West Texas, where T-bone steaks are served only medium rare and people say things like, “Sideways don’t wanna meet me. Unless it wants to find itself at the short end of a long street. »

Mustang

6 May 2016 7:26 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

This one will get to you. Director Deniz Gamze Ergüven takes on a difficult subject -- the terrible treatment of young girls by relatives enforcing conservative moral prerogatives. Sidestepping issues of religion, she makes a powerful case for the rights of women, with the help of five marvelous young actresses; her show is funny, scary and thoroughly compelling. Mustang Blu-ray The Cohen Media Group-Entertainment One 2015 / Color / 2:35 widescreen / 97 min. / Street Date May 10, 2016 / 39.98 Starring Günes Sensoy, Doga Zeynep Doguslu, Elit Iscan .

Marc Spector (a.k.a. Moon Knight/Jake Lockley/Steven Grant) has been fighting criminals and keeping New York City safe for years... or has he?

The 25 most underrated film scores of the 2000s

Diverse, awe-inspiring and memorable treasures that have sadly fallen off the radar

The noughties were a tough decade for film music fans. Not only was there the unprecedented loss of four great masters in the form of Jerry Goldsmith, Elmer Bernstein, Michael Kamen and Basil Poledouris; the nature of the industry itself began to go through some seismic changes, not all of them for the better.

With the art of film scoring becoming ever more processed, driven increasingly by ghost writers, electronic augmentation and temp tracks, prospects looked bleak. However, this shouldn’t shield the fact that there were some blindingly brilliant scores composed during this period. Here’s but a small sampling of them.

Marc Alan Fishman: Rebooted, Rewritten, Revolting

27 February 2016 12:10 PM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

I gave up buying comics monthly basically two years ago. The New52 let me down. Marvel’s events didn’t grab my gaze either. With Marvel’s TV and movies being excellent alternatives, and DC’s archives of animated adventures at my beck and call, I was as comically sated as I needed to be. And seemingly, I’ve not missed much in the down time since.

And then, seemingly out of nowhere, a whole mess of news hit the wires. The two biggest ones to note: Eric Stephenson of Image Comics had the same rant Robert Kirkman had five years ago, and Grant Morrison, Warren Ellis, Garth Ennis, Alan Moore, and plenty of other big names have had prior to them. My ComicMix compatriot Molly Jackson covered it well. For those who are afraid of clicking? Stephenson came out to proclaim it was time to stop cutting corners for short term success, »

Cesar Awards: Philippe Faucon’s Drama ‘Fatima’ Wins Best Film

26 February 2016 11:33 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris — Underscoring the diversity of this year’s Cesar lineup, Philippe Faucon’s “Fatima,” a tale of a Moroccan-born single mother, won best film, supporting actress and adapted screenplay at the 41st Cesar Awards ceremony which took place Friday night at the Chatelet Theater in Paris.

Although the big win for “Fatima” was unexpected, it resonates strongly with the current divide in France and sheds light on the second and third generations of North African immigrants in France. The country was hit by its deadliest ever terror attack in November and has seen the Far Right party gaining grounds in the run up to the 2017 presidential election.

A contemporary social drama loosely based on Fatima Elayoubi’s poems “Priere a la lune” (“Prayer to the Moon”), “Fatima” turns on a single mother who emigrated from Morocco and faces cultural challenges as well as prejudice in France, where she raises her »

The girls in Deniz Gamze Ergüven's Mustang

After talking about working with Warren Ellis, being in a short film directed by Olivier Assayas for To Each His Own Cinema, the costumes by Selin Sozen, writing with Alice Winocour and being in Augustine, Deniz Gamze Ergüven discussed with me seeing Don Siegel's Escape From Alcatraz as an influence, the contrasting comparisons with Jafar Panahi's Offside and Sofia Coppola's The Virgin Suicides and dynamics between the girls (Günes Sensoy, Doga Zeynep Doguslu, Tugba Sunguroglu, Elit Iscan, Ilayda Akdogan) and their guardians (Nihal G. Koldas, Ayberk Pekcan) in Mustang.

Anne-Katrin Titze: The football idea, although you use it differently, reminded me of Jafar Panahi's tremendous Offside. Were you connecting that?

Xavier Giannoli’s “Marguerite” and Arnaud Desplechin’s “My Golden Years” are leading the nominations at this year’s Cesar awards, along with “Mustang,” Deniz Gamze Ergüven’s Oscar-nominated feature debut, and Jacques Audiard’s Palme-d’Or winning “Dheepan.”

‘The Troop #2′ Review (Titan Comics)

22 January 2016 7:31 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Written by Noel Clarke | Art by Joshua Cassara | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp

The first issue of The Troop was not only a pleasant surprise, but far exceeded my expectations. Written by a novice ‘celebrity’ writer, Noel Clarke, I expected a middle of the road generic something or other. What we did get was a violent, pacy adventure that had all the hallmarks of a popcorn movie, superheroes for grown-ups. A perfect first issue, in that it established the characters and their world alongside setting up a great storyline but leaving just enough to come to make you really look forward to the next issue. The second issue of course is often where a reader decides if he will stick with a book or not, so perhaps even more critical to a title’s success is how it performs a month later.

To briefly recap, the first issue saw us meet Terrain, »

James Bond 007: Vargr #3

Written by Warren Ellis

Art by Jason Masters

Letters by Simon Bowland

Publisher: Dynamite Entertainment

After two issues during which writer Ellis and artist Masters supplied fans with ample set-up, issue number 3 of the Vargr storyline finally kicks into higher gear. Bond takes up on Kurjak’s invitation to inspect one’s of his warehouses, but unbeknownst to the hero, the brilliant scientist has a trap laid out to dispatch of the pestering double-oh. Meanwhile, Kurjak comforts assassin Dharma after her failure to vanquish 007 back in issue 2 and subsequently unleashes his ultimate weapon: Mr. Masters, the incredibly fit, biochemically altered man hinted at twice already. In addition to sharing a relationship with Dharma, he is Kurjak’s blunt instrument par excellence. If Bond makes it out alive of the warehouse, Mr. Masters is to handle the assignment…

With issue 3, Vargr really begins to hit its stride, »
