Tim Roth interview: Tin Star, Reservoir Dogs, Twin Peaks

Tim Roth leads an excellent cast in unpredictable new Sky Atlantic revenge drama Tin Star, out now…

“It’s the disposal,” says Tim Roth. “The killing isn’t the problem, it’s the disposal that’s the problem. You run out of space.” The storage issues faced by serial killers aren’t something to which many of us will have devoted much thought. Roth has. Reassuringly, he’s had reason to thanks to his recent sinister role as real-life murderer Reg Christie in BBC drama Rillington Place. “Charming fella” he jokes.

The Lost City Of Z – Review

20 April 2017 9:51 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

 

Excuse the twisting of a beloved comedian’s signature tune, but this new film’s theme could be “Hooray for Captain Fawcett, the Bolivian explorer!”. That’s Captain Percy Fawcett, to be specific. He’s the newest movie jungle adventurer, in the vein of Jungle Jim and Indiana Jones, except he was a real person. And he was the subject of a recent best-selling book. Now his exploits from nearly one hundred years ago have finally made it to the big screen. So is his quest to find The Lost City Of Z worthy of a far less treacherous trek to the local multiplex?

In 1906 Percy Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam) was a respected member of the British Royal Artillery, especially after shooting a stag during a big hunting competition. He’s got a beautiful supportive wife Nina (Sienna Miller) and an adorable tot named Jack. Unfortunately his military career has stalled, »

Why Brad Pitt Sent James Gray ‘The Lost City of Z’ And Pushed the Filmmaker In a New Direction — Podcast

14 April 2017 7:37 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After James Gray finished reading David Grann’s book “The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon” – a nonfiction chronicle of British explorer Percy Fawcett’s obsessive quest to find a lost civilization buried deep in the Amazonian jungle – he was confused why Brad Pitt had sent it to him.

“I have absolutely no idea what they want me to do this,” said Gray when he was guest on IndieWire’s Filmmaker Toolkit podcast. “There had been nothing in my career as a director that had shown I could do anything like this.”

Paramount had bought the book for Pitt , whose production company Plan B (“Moonlight,” “12 Years a Slave”) ultimately produced the film. Pitt had always wanted to work with Gray, and while it didn’t happen this time, Pitt will star in Gray’s Sci Fi film “Ad Astra,” which is shooting this summer. »

'The Lost City of Z' Review: Charlie Hunnam Hunts for His Heart of Darkness

11 April 2017 12:48 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

James Gray makes films like an explorer, digging for the details that define character and art. The Lost City of Z doesn't look like Gray's other movies. Little Odessa, The Yards, We Own the Night, Two Lovers and The Immigrant mostly investigated the corners of his native New York. The Lost City of Z, set in Ireland, England and the Amazonian jungle at the start of the 20th Century, takes the Russian-Jewish Gray out of his comfort zone. His skilled screenplay, adapted from the 2009 book by David Gann, tells the story of Col. »

The Lost City Of Z review [Berlinale]: Dir. James Gray (2017)

14 February 2017 1:00 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Lost City Of Z review: James Gray writes and directs this take of an epic true story of twentieth century explorer Percy Fawcett.

The Lost City Of Z review by Paul Heath at the 2017 Berlin Film Festival.

The Lost City Of Z review

James Gray follows up previous crime movies The Yards, We Own The Night and the previous Little Odessa, all of which were impressive in their own way, with this ambitious, yet involving period piece about the legendary British explorer Colonel Percy Fawcett who, in the early twentieth century, embarked on a series of journeys to find a mysterious lost city in the Amazon jungle.

Charlie Hunnam (Green Street, Sons Of Anarchy) leads the cast of this epic 140-minute motion picture that is reminiscent of movies made in an era a long ago. In The Lost City Of Z he plays the lead of Fawcett, an ambitious »

Welcome to the Jungle in New Trailer and Posters for James Gray’s ‘The Lost City of Z’

2 February 2017 8:05 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

“Here was a person for whom the search meant everything,” James Gray tells National Geographic, speaking about British explorer Percy Fawcett, played by Charlie Hunnam in The Lost City of Z. “His dream of finding an ancient Amazonian civilization sustained him through unimaginable hardships, the skepticism of the scientific community, startling betrayals and years spent away from his family.” This is all captured in his latest feature, one of our early favorites of the year.

Also starring Robert Pattinson, Tom Holland, and Sienna Miller, ahead of an April release, Bleecker Street and Amazon Studios have now unveiled a new U.S. trailer for the film (which was recently cut down to a PG-13 rating, albeit in a minor fashion). For those who missed the 35mm premiere at last year’s New York Film Festival, thankfully Metrograph has unveiled they’ll be showing the film in the format this April, along with a full Gray retrospective. »
