Stage Door: "King Lear" in the Park

Shakespeare in the Park shutters for another year this Sunday August 17th, so you only have a couple more chances to see King Lear. I can't claim that King Lear is one of my favorite plays and as far as interpretations of it go, nobody is ever going to beat Akira Kurosawa's Ran (1985), you know?

The Bening and John Lithgow star in "King Lear" in Central Park

John Lithgow headlines and is quite strong as the rapidly declining hot-tempered looneytunes King who stupidly gives everything away to his two eldest daughters (Annette Bening and Jessica Hecht) while shunning the youngest who truly loves him. Lithgow is having a good year; I urge all of you to see his excellent work in Love is Strange when it opens later this month. I had entirely forgotten about the B story in King Lear which is like a reflection of the A story,

Silent House DVD Review

Directors: Chris Kentis, Laura Lau

Starring: Elizabeth Olsen, Adam Trese, Eric Sheffer Stevens

Running Time: 82 minutes

Certificate: 15

Extras: Shooting People Competition Winner, Trailer

How do you do something original in a remake? Scorsese tried it with The Departed, and co-directors Laura Lau and Chris Kentis have given it a go with Silent House. Based on La Casa Muda, the film follows Sarah (Olsen), and her father John (Trese) who, along with Uncle Peter (Sheffer Stevens) are packing up an old family home. But when John and Uncle Peter leave Sarah in the house alone, she begins to hear noises and terror soon takes hold.

Inspired by alleged true events from the 1940s, Silent House is a curious movie: on the one hand it’s very clever, all being shot in one take and in real time; but on the other, it’s hideously dull, and very formulaic. The setting – a

Blu-ray Review: Silent House

Silent House

Review by LondonFilmFan

Stars: Elizabeth Olsen, Adam Trese, Eric Sheffer Stevens, Julia Taylor Ross | Written by Gustavo Hernández, Laura Lau | Directed by Chris Kentis, Laura Lau

Hot on the heels of wrapping on her first film Martha Marcy May Marlene, Elizabeth Olsen dove straight into her second role, an intense week-long shoot for Chris Kentis and Laura Lau’s “one continuous shot” feature Silent House. Not only is Silent House a remake of the 2010 Uruguayan film La casa muda (supposedly based on a true story from a Uruguayan village in the 1940s) but it also lifts the same gimmicks the original utilised and, for all intents and purposes, contains a bare minimum of originality.

The premise is simple and the idea is a novel one (or at least in the original film it was). A single hand-held camera follows the central character, Sarah, as she revisits the old

Blu-ray Review: ‘Silent House’ Pulls Off Ambitious Stunt with Mixed Results

Chicago – “Silent House” inspires the same strange mixture of feelings that I felt while watching fascinating yet severely flawed pictures like “The Life Aquatic” or “I Heart Huckabees.” My rational mind recognizes that the film doesn’t quite work, and yet my inner cinephile urges me to recommend it anyway. Here’s a movie that’s nearly worth seeing in spite of itself.

The directing team of Chris Kentis and Laura Lau made an enormous impression on horror fans with their 2003 indie hit, “Open Water,” which remains one of the scariest films of the last decade. For the majority of its running time, the film centered on the bobbing heads of a couple hopelessly stranded in the middle of shark-infested waters. By following the premise to its logical conclusion, the film refused to loosen its grip on viewers’ imaginations, while masterfully playing on their most primal fears.

Blu-ray Rating: 2.5/5.0

Silent House Blu-Ray Review

Directors Chris Kentis and Laura Lau (Open Water) return to the horror genre for another unique spin on a rather basic story. Silent House is a one take horror film, which uses lengthy shots and low lighting to capture the fear and suspense of a creepy house. Elizabeth Olsen takes the solo lead role and attempts to grab your attention for a little under an hour and a half, but eventually her screams and panting wears off and Silent House‘s true colors are revealed. It’s just another disappointing horror film with an interesting premise, great actress, but no story and a twist ending that ruins everything before it.

Sarah (Elizabeth Olsen), her father (Adam Trese) and her uncle (Eric Sheffer Stevens) are gathering up a few things and working on their lakeside home out in the middle of nowhere. Certain eerie events lead to Sarah getting trapped inside the house,

Hiding in Shadows with Silent House: A Movie Review

*here be major spoilers. Director: Chris Kentis and Laura Lau. Writers: Gustavo Hernández, and Laura Lau. Cast: Elizabeth Olsen, Adam Trese, Eric Sheffer Stevens, Julia Taylor Ross, and Adam Barnett. Married couple, Chris Kenis and Laura Lau, return from their thriller Open Water (2004) with another terrifying movie, Silent House. Silent House is a North American remake of Gustavo Hernandez's Uruguayan film La Casa Muda (2010). Both films incorporate long takes into their narrative. Some scenes last for longer than ten minutes. During each take, actress Elizabeth Olsen delivers an astounding peformance as Sarah, a young woman who must confront a tortured past. That tortured past is going to revealed here along with some of the pseudo-psychological aspects of the film. Sarah experiences memory loss: "I think I have holes up here (pointing to her head)." Her memory loss has been caused by years of repression. Also, her conversation partner is a figment of her imagination,

Silent House - Blu-ray Review

Although it slightly runs off the rails by the end, Silent House manages to provide a few scares thanks to the intense performance of Elizabeth Olsen, tight camera angles and a brilliant use of bare bones lighting. A remake of the 2010 film La casa muda, Silent House was directed by Chris Kentis, Laura Lau with a screenplay from Gustavo Hernández (who wrote the original) and Lau.

Series status: Cancelled

TV show description:

This sitcom revolves around a pair of single moms who are best friends and former high school nerds.

The unintended consequence is that they have created two mean girls just like the ones who tortured them years ago.

Annie Watson (Jaime Pressly) was raised in an ultra-strict, uber-religious household where she had little-to-no freedom. As a result, she pretty much allows her daughter Sophie (Kristi Lauren) to do as she pleases.

I Hate My Teenage Daughter: Cancelled; No Season Two

There just wasn't enough love for this Fox sitcom. The network has cancelled I Hate My Teenage Daughter after a handful of episodes.

The sitcom revolves around a pair of moms who realize that their daughters have become the kind of girls who terrorized them in high school. The cast includes Aisha Dee, Chad L. Coleman, Eric Sheffer Stevens, Jaime Pressly, Katie Finneran, Kevin Rahm, and Kristi Lauren.

I Hate My Teenage Daughter debuted back in November to a respectable 2.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 6.80 million total viewers. That was a positive performance but no doubt had a lot to do with having Fox's very successful X Factor as a lead-in.

The ratings for the second episode fell by 25% and the thirds dropped by another 14% to a 1.8 in the demo with 5.06 million. Those numbers were
