The Tao of Nicolas Cage: Gone in 60 Seconds

14 April 2017 3:51 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Before Dom was flexing his muscles Cage was getting fast and furious in order to protect his family.

This weekend movie theaters are going to be packed with hordes of people eager to check out The Fate of the Furious, the 8th film in the unexpectedly super popular Fast and Furious franchise. And that’s all fine and well. I enjoy the films; they’re dumb, stupid, exciting fun. Nothing wrong with that whatsoever, but we must remember that a year before Dom and his crew ripped off Point Break, the legendary Nicolas Cage was snatching up cars left and right and doing so in under 60 seconds.

Of course I’m going to talk about Gone in 60 Seconds.

Cage stars as the Memphis Raines, a notorious car thief that retired a number of years back in an effort to go straight. And he does. Memphis is working at a little go-kart track for kids, teaching »

Review: An Auteur's First Heroine—Werner Herzog's "Queen of the Desert"

11 April 2017 3:02 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

What does it say about the current appeal of Werner Herzog's fiction films when his star-studded 2015 period adventure, Queen of the Desert, hasn't been released until now? Between its premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival and its appearance in U.S. cinemas, the German director has released two documentaries—both stellar—and shown yet another fiction drama on the festival circuit, the truly bizarre Salt and Fire. Now in theatres, Herzog's first fictional feature film since his two-shot salvo of The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans and My Son, My Son, What Have You Done? in 2009 is certainly his most expansive drama for decades. With a cast of James Franco, Robert Pattinson, and Damian Lewis, all led by Nicole KidmanQueen of the Desert adapts the true saga of Gertrude Bell, an utterly unique woman who at the turn of the last century plunged into the »

Werner Herzog on Michael Shannon Being the Best Actor of His Generation

7 April 2017 11:13 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Attempted to be billed as an “ecological thriller” by programmers when it made the festival rounds last year, Werner Herzog’s Salt and Fire defies any of the strict genre labels that can be thrown its way. Likely to go down as an oddity even within an already eclectic filmography, the film can be considered alongside Stroszek and Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans as one of the director’s funniest films, at least depending on your taste. Many critics found their patience tested by its numerous non-sequiturs, while others fell for the deft comic timing of lead Michael Shannon as the world’s unlikeliest CEO. Regardless, the film came as a nice reminder from a man who was threatening to be remembered more as a meme than great filmmaker. We were lucky enough to have a brief chat with Herzog, which also included mention of his period epic Queen of the Desert, »

Joshua Reviews Werner Herzog’s Salt And Fire [Theatrical Review]

7 April 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

Best known as a documentarian, especially to many younger filmgoers just now getting into the director’s catalog, the name Werner Herzog not only conjures up a very specific image of the man himself as well as his work crafting almost metaphysical style non-fiction masterworks. However, across his decades-spanning career, Herzog has also been the creative voice behind some of the most interesting and esoteric narrative fiction features of the last 40-plus years. Ranging from the descent into madness that is Aguire, The Wrath Of God to the unhinged Bad Lieutenant: Port Of Call New Orleans, Herzog has cemented himself as one of cinema’s great artists.

And yet, even the greatest artists make missteps.

One of two films from Herzog opening this weekend (the second being the career-worst Queen Of The Desert), Salt And Fire is a confounding mishmash of Herzogian man-vs-nature philosophizing and emotionally disconnected storytelling. The film »

Exclusive: Why Michael Shannon Feels Lucky to Be Hollywood’s Most Reliable Supporting Actor

29 March 2017 9:02 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Michael Shannon can easily be described as Hollywood’s secret weapon. He’s a reliable working actor whose versatility onscreen has seen him emerge from Michael Bay’s Pearl Harbor to appear opposite Eminem in 8 Mile, earn an Oscar nomination in Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet’s highly anticipated onscreen reunion Revolutionary Road and walk away unscathed from Man of Steel, in which he played the critically panned blockbuster’s main baddie, General Zod. He’s repeatedly worked with directors that include Jeff Nichols, Liza Johnson, Michael Bay, Siofra Campbell and Werner Herzog.

In fact, Vulture even gave him that title in 2016 when he was promoting the back-to-back releases of Nocturnal Animals, which earned him an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting actor, and Loving, the latter of which most fans probably didn’t even realize he was in until the actor suddenly appeared onscreen as a photographer who captures the story of Richard (Joel Edgerton) and Mildred »

Movie Review: Sorry War On Everyone, but it’s not the best time for a comedy about giddily corrupt cops

1 February 2017 10:00 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

One day, perhaps, murderously corrupt police officers will once again be a viable source of comedy. At this particular historical moment, however, a movie like War On Everyone has its work cut out for it. The very first scene attempts to get laughs from cops who deliberately run over a fleeing suspect, after he’s stopped running and clearly decided to surrender; it’s supposed to be funny simply because the suspect is a mime. (“I always wondered: If you hit a mime, does he make a sound?” “Well, now you know.”) Later, one of the cops, asked why he joined the police force, answers “I guess I always wanted to pervert the course of justice. Plus you get to shoot people for no reason. Nobody can do a goddamn thing about it.” Pitch-black comedy along these lines worked as recently as Bad Lieutenant: Port Of Call New Orleans, right »
