Jim Mickle interview: Cold In July, thrillers, Argento

24 June 2014 6:08 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We talk to director Jim Mickle about his latest film Cold In July, the secret of suspense and his influences, from the Coens to Argento...

Interview

Where Hollywood appears to have largely abandoned the thriller genre in favour of ever bigger action adventures and sequels, indie filmmakers have stepped in to fill the breach. Earlier this year saw the release of Jeremy Saulnier's quirky low-budget genre piece Blue Ruin - a satisfyingly grisly thriller with a great everyman performance from Macon Blair.

This Friday sees the UK release of Cold In July, the latest film from director Jim Mickle. It stars Dexter's Michael C Hall as Richard, an ordinary family man thrown into a wild and unpredictable criminal underworld after shooting a mysterious intruder in his living room one night.

Adapted from Joe Landsdale's novel of the same name, Cold In July initially slips into the southern neo-noir subgenre, »

Cold In July review

24 June 2014 2:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Stake Land director Jim Mickle serves up a twisty neo-noir thriller. Here's Ryan's review of the murky, entertaining Cold In July...

There’s a deliciously slippery quality to Cold In July, a neo-noir thriller from director Jim Mickle (Stake Land, We Are What We Are). Set in late-80s east Texas, Mickle’s movie contains distinct shades of such films as Blood Simple, Red Rock West and Martin Scorsese’s Cape Fear remake, but at the same time, flatly refuses to cleave to genre expectations.

Dexter’s Michael C Hall stars as Richard, a quiet, mild-mannered family man who shoots an intruder in his living room one sultry summer night. Shaken to the core by the experience, Richard’s once humdrum life is disrupted further by the appearance of the intruder’s father, Russel (Sam Shepard), who manages to lace even the most softly-spoken utterance with a thread of barely-concealed menace. »

The Definitive War Movies: 40-31

10 June 2014 11:20 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

I promise – it wasn’t my plan to have seven of the ten films on this portion of the list focus on World War II. But, if we look back at the biggest international conflicts of all time, World War II is the one that provides the most opportunity. It’s a chance for a number of different countries to look at the same war from different perspectives. In this portion alone, there’s a French film, a German film, a Hungarian film, a couple British/American films, and a few American films – all about varied aspects of World War II.

40. The Killing Fields (1984)

Directed by: Roland Joffé

Conflict: Cambodian Civil War

For all the films made about World War II and larger scale conflicts, the few that depict smaller, more concentrated ones are sometimes more effective. Roland Joffé’s 1984 drama The Killing Fields hones in on Cambodia, »

The proficient ‘Cold In July’ mashes up two genres that should have been kept apart

Cold in July

Written by Jim Mickle and Nick Damici

Directed by Jim Mickle

USA, 2014

Indie auteur Jim Mickle (We Are What We Are) has said that his newest effort Cold in July is a combination of Bong Joon-Ho’s serial-murder thriller Memories of Murder and the Patrick Swayze action film Road House. That’s an eye-catching pairing, for certain, but it’s unfortunate that Cold in July doesn’t live up to the promise of such a wild mash-up.

Dexter’s Michael C. Hall plays Richard Dane, who encounters an intruder in his house late one night in 1989 and shoots him dead. Almost everyone, from the law to Dane’s neighbors, thinks this a clear case of a good guy successfully drawing down on a bad guy. The only exception is the father of the deceased, an ex-con played by an appropriately terrifying Sam Shepard, who is soon making threats against the Dane family. »

Edelstein on the Bizarre and Delightful Cold in July

23 May 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Jim Mickle’s Cold in July is a noir thriller that at first seems straightforward, compact, scary but a mite predictable. Michael C. Hall is Richard Dane, a mousy picture-framer in a small Texas town who—in a superbly edited sequence—accidentally shoots a burglar in his house in the middle of the night. Almost immediately, he finds himself the focus of the dead man’s vengeful ex-con father, Russel (Sam Shepard)—a wiry, chilling resourceful criminal with a folksy way of saying hey and then getting past a battery of police officers and into Dane’s little boy’s bedroom. So far, so Cape Fear. Then come the twists and turns—sudden, hairpin, outlandish. Before you quite know what’s happening, you’re swerving into another sort of movie altogether. And then another. You might not buy them all, but what a great ride.Mickle made one of the few excellent post-Romero zombie thrillers, »

Juliette Lewis And Molly Ringwald Join Jem And The Holograms

20 May 2014 7:15 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

According to the La Times, Jon M. Chu (Step Up 2, Justin Bieber: Never Say Never) has nabbed both Molly Ringwald and Juliette Lewis to star in his live action Jem And The Holograms movie. Those of a certain age will probably remember Ringwald from the likes of Pretty in Pink, Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, and the tv miniseries take on Stephen King's The Stand. While Lewis has appeared in Cape Fear, Kaliforna, Natural Born Killers among many others; and she also fronted the rock band "Juliette and the Licks" for years before moving on to pursue solo work. The site don't reveal who they'll play in the movie but since none of "The Misfits" (the bad guys) have been cast yet, we'll assume it'll be a couple of them. The movie will be produced by Jason Blum (Insidious, Paranormal Activity) and Scooter Braun. »

Embark on a Mysterious Mission with the Official Trailer for Wayward Pines

20 May 2014 4:46 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

This new trailer for "Wayward Pines," heading to Fox in 2015, has a suitably spooky, "Twin Peaks"-ish vibe, and it's certainly chock-full of the type of stars we used to only see in the movies. It's a good time for horror on TV for sure! Check it out, and let us know what you think.

Synopsis:

Imagine the perfect American town... beautiful homes, manicured lawns, children playing safely in the streets. Now imagine never being able to leave. You have no communication with the outside world. You think you're going insane. You must be in Wayward Pines.

Based on the best-selling novel Pines by Blake Crouch and brought to life by suspenseful storyteller M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense, Signs), "Wayward Pines" is the intense new mind-bending event thriller evocative of the classic cult hit “Twin Peaks.”

Steven Spielberg Almost Directed Cape Fear With Robert De Niro

14 May 2014 9:49 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Steven Spielberg's career has been filled with hits and misses that showcased his strengths and weaknesses as a director. But what if one of his career defining hits, Schindler's List, was directed by Martin Scorsese . as he originally had intended? Well then we'd have a version of the Cape Fear remake directed by Steven Spielberg, and (still) starring Robert De Niro. Hold on to something, because things are about to get a little "timey wimey" as we theorize what such a film might have been like. As of this moment, Steven Spielberg's next two projects are an untitled Tom Hanks drama set in the Cold War, and his adaptation of Roald Dahl's book The Bfg. But the legendary director has made a "career" out of abandoned projects. In my opinion, the most interesting project that almost had the distinction of being "A Steven Spielberg Film" has to »

Gareth Edwards interview: making Godzilla, Spielberg, Giger

13 May 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With Godzilla looming on the horizon, we talk to director Gareth Edwards about Spielberg, Hr Giger, blockbuster filmmaking and more...

Interview

Across the six decades since his first appearance in 1954, Godzilla’s roar has echoed through dozens of sequels and spin-offs. The 1954 Godzilla was a moving, angst-ridden account of an uncontrollable beast wrecking havoc on Tokyo. For a nation living through the aftermath of the nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the parallels between Godzilla and the events of 1945 were plain to see. This, clearly, was more than just a mere monster movie. 

16 years on from the financially successful yet hollow American incarnation made in 1998, British director Gareth Edwards takes the King of the Monsters back to the roots Ishiro Honda established in the creature’s debut outing. Edwards made his own impression on the genre back in 2010, with his debut feature, Monsters. A romantic road trip drama with an »

The second entry in a new and on-going series of audiovisual essays by Cristina Álvarez López and Adrian Martin.

***

Martin Scorsese once said (while shooting Cape Fear in 1991) that it’s hard to show characters walking out their front door, going over to their car while talking about something or other, and getting in. Hard to make that visually, dramatically, cinematically interesting. Hard to ingeniously compress it, or elide it altogether, as his master (one of many masters) Alexander Mackendrick would have done. Hard to manoeuvre in every sense—to do it well, and then fit into its exact, best spot in the whole film, the total structure. Such scenes, strung together in a jazzy, Spike Lee-style curve over two or three hours, constitute a narrative archipelago in Scorsese: a pattern of disconnected islands, not a whole, smoothed-out landscape.

We know from The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) that Scorsese is not terribly interested, »

Most Memorable Tattoos Featured in Movies

7 April 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I've recently been circling around the idea of actually getting a tattoo. If I get one, it will be my first. But I've been thinking about some of the tattoos that I've seen in the movies over the years, and I started looking them up online to remind myself of what they looked like. I would never get a tattoo that I saw in a movie, it'd have to be an original design, but I was looking for a little inspiration.

While going through all the movie tattoos that I could think of, I decided to put together a list of some of the most memorable tattoos have been featured on the big screen. Here they are in no particular order.

Reign of Fire - Matthew McConaughey

How many of you forgot about how badass McConaughey was in this dragon slaying action film?! He sported some crazy cool tattoo art in it. »

Juliette Lewis at 40: 'I Quit My Bull-- at 22'

10 March 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Juliette Lewis is at a turning point. Admitting that most past news coverage about her was "usually about Brad Pitt or drug addiction, which hasn't been me since I was 22," she says, "I'm 40. I quit all my bulls--- at 22. There is growth. Get out of the past." At present, Lewis has two films at the SXSW arts fest in Austin: Kelly & Cat, which Variety in its review called an "inspired match-up of underserved veteran Juliette Lewis and breakout newcomer Jonny Weston," and writer-director Kat Candler's darkly emotional Hellion, which premiered Sunday and costars Josh Wiggins as a struggling teenager »

The Simpsons Review: “Diggs” & “The Man Who Grew Too Much” (Season 25, Episodes 12 & 13)

10 March 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After a long winter break to accommodate the Olympics, the Oscars and anything else that sucked eyes away from the show to other places in this valuable prime time real estate, The Simpsons returned with double the normal number of episodes. Both episodes visited some old themes and ideas, but only one seemed to make anything worthwhile out of the recycled material.

Working backwards, the second new episode began with a seeming tribute to the night’s big premiere of the Cosmos revival, but “The Man Who Grew Too Much” should have played to a couple of The Simpsons big strengths: Lisa’s sometimes irritating brand of liberalism, the sometimes misguided evangelicalism of the First Church of Springfield and, of course, the return of Sideshow Bob (Kelsey Grammer).

It what had to be another node to Cosmos, the pitiful state of American education (or maybe just Springfield education) is mined for laughs, »
