Chicago – There is a moment in Guillaume Canet’s “Tell No One” when protagonist Alexandre Beck (François Cluzet) is forced to run. The police are hot on his trail and have cornered him at his office, where he serves as a pediatrician. But before the cops burst through the door, Alex sails out his window, breaks his fall with a car roof and runs as fast as his feet can cary him.
This pulse-pounding moment occurs about midway through Canet’s 2006 mystery, and quickly unspools into one of the greatest sustained chase sequences in film history, proving that stunt work and in-camera effects will always trump any brand of digital trickery. Yet that is only one of countless highlights in this splendidly entertaining masterpiece of suspense. It was the sixth film distributed by Music Box Films, and ended up becoming one of their biggest hits, which is hardly surprising considering »

To celebrate, the band posted a gloriously terrible medley of U2's "Pride (In The Name Of Love)," "With Or Without You," and "Sunday Bloody Sunday" on its website. While the band calls the medley "embarrassing," we say it would be embarrassing not to blast this as loud as you can, preferably while waving a white flag. [via thewalkmenmusic.blogspot.com] »
