The Lrm Interview with Ti West & James Ransone on In A Valley of Violence

20 October 2016 3:29 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

In the last few years, there’s been a fantastic Renaissance in the Western genre with all sorts of new and more experienced filmmakers tackling the most American movie genre there is. With a name like “Ti West,” it was probably only a matter of time before the director of The Innkeepers and House of the Devil would try his hand at a Western.

The results are In A Valley of Violence, West’s gritty take on the “lone drifter comes to small town” Western subgenre. It stars Ethan Hawke as that drifter, who arrives in the ghost town of Denton and immediately falls afoul of Gilly (James Ransone from Tangerine), son of the town’s leader, Marshall, played by John Travolta. When Gilly and his men ambush Hawke’s character outside of town and commit a despicable act, it forces Hawke to return to Denton with his sole motivation being vengeance. »

Watch: Riz Ahmed Leads Rooney Mara to Ben Mendelsohn in First Clip From ‘Una’

7 September 2016 9:31 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Teaming three of the finest actors working today, Rooney MaraBen Mendelsohn and Riz Ahmed, Una is a thriller about two people forced to revisit a passionate yet illicit relationship they had years ago. Coming from Australian theater director Benedict Andrews, the film premiered at Telluride Film Festival last weekend and now ahead of stopping by Tiff, the first clip has landed.

Featuring all three of our main leads, it shows Mara’s character confronting Mendelsohn’s character at his workplace. At first glance, it looks like remarkably assured direction from Andrews, who is making his debut here, setting the thriller aspect with an unnerving score. Check it out below and return soon for our review from Tiff.

A psychological thriller with elements of a revenge plot, this intense character-driven film is rooted in its performances. Rooney Mara (also at the Festival in Lion and The Secret Scripture) is the titular Una, »
