Exclusive: Dunst, Mortensen and Isaac Jet-Set Among the Ruins in 'Two Faces of January' Poster Debut

17 June 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Check out the poster debut, exclusive to Toh!, for "Drive" screenwriter Hossein Amini's directorial debut "The Two Faces of January," starring Kirsten Dunst, Viggo Mortensen and Oscar Isaac. It's based on Patricia Highsmith's 1962-set page-turner. This posh thriller centers on a tony American couple (Mortensen and Dunst) who, while vacationing in sunny Athens, tangle with a suspiciously charismatic Greek-speaking American (Isaac). But their menage-a-trois takes murderous, jealous and paranoid turns when he becomes accomplice to the affluent couple's bad behavior. Oscar nominee Amini's (1998's "The Wings of the Dove") classy throwback bowed on Us shores at the San Francisco International Film Festival in April 2014 -- here's our review. It plays the La Film Festival this week before Magnolia Pictures brings it to VOD on August 28, and to theaters on September 26. So far, it has picked up strong reviews. The stars are attractive, as are the ravishingly filmed Greek and Turkish locales, »

‘The Two Faces of January’ an undercooked take on an overlooked Patricia Highsmith novel

23 May 2014 12:21 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Two Faces Of January

Written and directed by Hossein Amini

USA and UK, 2014

Anyone acquainted with Roman theology or a pub quiz will know that January is a Anglicisation of the Roman god Janus, the two-faced figurine  who stands at the cusp of the new year, simultaneously musing backward at recent lessons and experiences, and peering forward to the murky and elusive future ahead, a guardian at the crossroads of the past and present. These twin impulses swirl in the miasma of Patricia Highsmith’s novel The Two Faces of January, first published in 1964. It’s a lesser-known work of her serrated literature, which is obsessed with psychological and sexual criminal deviancy, most famously brought to the screen by Hitchcock in the minor classic Strangers On A Train and by Anthony Minghella in 1999’s acclaimed The Talented Mr. Ripley. After decades of intense wrangling, accomplished screenwriter Hossein Amini (Jude, »

HeyUGuys Premiere Interviews: Kirsten Dunst & More for The Two Faces of January

13 May 2014 12:55 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Hossein Amini’s debut film shares something with the work he’s known for in his screenwriting capacity. In the mid-90s he adapted Jude and The Wings of the Dove to great acclaim and more recently saw his work on Drive and Snow White and the Huntsman earn him further plaudits.

He stepped behind the camera last year to direct The Two Faces of January, a Patricia Highsmith novel he also adapted for the screen. Viggo Mortensen, Kirsten Dunst and Oscar Isaac star in the film, which played to great reviews at Berlin earlier in the year and this evening the UK premiere was held in Leicester Square.

Amon Warmann and Will Roberts were there to speak to the great and the good on the red carpet. Here’s what happened…

San Francisco International Film Fest Selects Opening and Closing Night Films

26 March 2014 5:36 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Now in its 57th year, the storied San Francisco International Film Festival has selected its Opening and Closing Night films. On April 24, the fest will kick off with Opening Night film "The Two Faces of January," Hossein Amini's Patricia Highsmith adaptation starring Oscar Isaac, Viggo Mortensen and Kirsten Dunst. Centered on a con artist, his wife and a mysterious ex-pat tour guide as they attempt to flee Greece following a violent incident that interlocks the trio, the 60s-set film premiered at the 2014 Berlinale where it picked up solid reviews.  This is Amini's debut feature as a director. He wrote the slick, tightly crafted screenplay for Nicolas Winding Refn's 2011 "Drive," and was among the many scribes on both "Snow White and the Huntsman" and "47 Ronin." Amini's 1997 Henry James adaptation "The Wings of the Dove" nabbed him a Oscar nomination. Magnolia Pictures will distribute "Two Faces of January" later this year. »

Berlin Film Review: ‘The Two Faces of January’

14 February 2014 9:04 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Patricia Highsmith provides the plot and writer-director Hossein Amini supplies the culture in “The Two Faces of January,” a gripping old-school suspenser starring Viggo Mortensen, Kirsten Dunst and Oscar Isaac that plays like “The Talented Mr. Ripley” minus the sultry sexual chemistry among its three leads. While the love-triangle dynamic lacks spark, this tony adaptation should have no trouble seducing Hitchcock fans and smarthouse types with its golden-hued tour of southeast Europe. What better way to see Turkey and Greece than in the company of such beautiful law-breakers as they try to stay two steps ahead of the local authorities?

Originally developed through “Ripley” director Anthony Minghella’s Mirage shingle, this lesser-known Highsmith novel has been smoldering on Amini’s to-do list for nearly 15 years. Best known as the screenwriter of such subtext-rich adaptations as “The Wings of the Dove” and “Drive,” Amini excels at conveying the subtle, unspoken tensions between characters, »

Viggo Mortensen’s ‘Two Faces of January’ Gets An Intriguing Trailer

10 February 2014 9:44 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The man that wrote Drive and The Wings of The Dove, Hossein Amini is now stepping behind the camera to direct The Two Faces of January. This will be the Iranian filmmaker’s first feature directorial project. The film is a “thriller centered on a con artist, his wife, and a stranger who try to flee a foreign country after one of them is caught up in the murder of a police officer.” [Synopsis Courtest of IMDb] The film will star Viggo Mortensen, Kirsten Dunst, and Oscar Isaac.

I’ll admit, the trailer has me intrigued. It looks like a tense, taught, thriller, held together with the kind of restrained performances that really tend to keep you guessing about where your allegiances should lie.

Give it a look and see if it’s up your alley.

Something else I’m proud to see is the continuing rise of Oscar Isaac. An actor of Cuban »

Exclusive New Trailer For The Two Faces Of January

10 February 2014 1:56 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Hossein Amini has built a very respectable career as a screenwriter, responsible for Drive and The Wings Of The Dove and called in by studios for big would-be tentpoles like Snow White And The Huntsman and 47 Ronin. Now he's turning to directing as well, and upcoming thriller The Two Faces Of January is his debut. Here's the trailer and poster for the film, which stars the interesting combo of Viggo Mortensen, Oscar Isaac and Kirsten Dunst. brightcove.createExperiences();As you probably picked up from that trailer, Mortensen is a con artist and Dunst plays his wife. They're on the run abroad when they meet local guide Rydal (Isaac) and the three work together to flee the country after the murder of a police officer. Judging by the significant glances being exchanged between Dunst and Isaac's characters here, that isn't all they'll be working on either.The Two Faces Of January »

Paranoid celluloid: conspiracy on film

7 February 2014 4:06 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

'If I'm wrong, I'm insane. If I'm right, it's worse': in conspiracy films – from Rosemary's Baby to State of Play – solving the crime does not bring peace. Michael Newton investigates a rich cinematic genre

Some believe that JFK was shot by his driver, some that Bobby Kennedy was killed by one of his guards; some believe the world is ruled by a Yale fraternity, some by lizard-aliens in disguise; some believe that Obama is a Communist mole; some that, back in 1966, Paul McCartney died. These notions are, at best, deluded; but as potential pitches for an as yet unmade Hollywood movie, they might just secure the contract. For, in movies, you can believe that the moon shots were faked, or that men are replacing their wives with compliant robots, or that space shuttles are firing earthquake-inducing weapons, or that the world itself is a delusion – and in each case you could be proved right. »
