Heebyjeeby: Miller Fails To Reclaim Glory Days of Punk

Perhaps it goes without saying that the more invested one is in the gloriously exciting New York City punk scene from the 1970s, the stronger disdain they’ll have towards Randall Miller’s latest film, Cbgb, so titled for the famed dive bar in the Bowery neighborhood which birthed the careers of numerous notable musical talents. While this is the director’s third effort in a row headlining Alan Rickman (following Nobel Son and Bottle Shock), their pairing has yet to yield a wholly satisfactory endeavor, even with the enjoyable thesp featured in juicy leading form. Miller’s latest is sure to suffer the greatest ire since it attempts to recreate a beloved golden age of musical genius with middling success. Moments of nostalgic emotion are ever so briefly reached, and evaporate so quickly that your only desire will be to »

Cbgb Movie Review

8 October 2013 3:16 AM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Title: Cbgb Director: Randall Miller Starring: Alan Rickman, Justin Bartha, Ashley Greene, Johnny Galecki, Donal Logue, Freddy Rodriguez, Malin Akerman, Richard de Klerk, Rupert Grint, Taylor Hawkins, Stana Katic, Joel David Moore, Mickey Summer, Bradley Whitford With “Nobel Son” and “Bottle Shock,” filmmaker Randall Miller has provided a couple nice, meaty, showcase roles for Alan Rickman, giving the British-born thespian a chance to act snobby and standoffish and self-destructive. The pair’s trilogy of movies on the precipice of something greater — films with engaging protagonists and an interesting backdrop or pitch, but little sense of psychological depth — continues with “Cbgb,” a celebration of the man behind the seminal New  [ Read More ]

Cbgb Trailer: Alan Rickman Will Rock You

7 August 2013 9:46 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

This trailer gives us next to no idea of how the film about New York's Cbgb and the club's owner will play out. But we can confirm that Alan Rickman, playing proprietor Hilly Kristal, is doing an American accent and donning gloriously curly hair and flannels and overalls. There will be original music from the Talking Heads, Iggy Pop, Blondie, the Velvet Underground, and the Police, with actors like Rupert Grint, Malin Akerman, Johnny Galecki, and Justin Bartha impersonating all those bands and a handful more. Randall Miller (Nobel SonBottle Shock) directed the movie and wrote the script with Rickman in mind. »

XLrator Media has acquired all U.S. distribution rights to the film Cbgb, a rock 'n roll true story of the legendary New York City club that launched dozens of top bands and is known globally as the home of American Punk Rock music. Cbgb tells the tale of the famed venue and its iconoclastic founder Hilly Kristal, portrayed by Alan Rickman (Harry Potter series) and directed by Randall Miller (Bottle Shock). The release of the much-buzzed-about film is timed to take advantage of the huge Cbgb Music Festival event this Fall and the current mainstream popularity of "Punk" in the media, art and fashion. The announcement was made today by XLrator Media CEO Barry Gordon.

The film will be released theatrically to coincide with the fast-growing Cbgb Music Festival, which takes New York City by storm October 9-13, 2013 with over 500 bands performing on 175 stages across the city including Times Square and Brooklyn's Barkley Center. »
