Watch the First Stunning Slow-Mo Clip from Undercover Cop Thriller ‘Hyena’

26 August 2014 5:43 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Writer-director Gerard Johnson’s sophomore feature, starring Peter Ferdinando as a corrupt London cop, is set to screen at Tiff next month, and the first stunning clip from the film has been released. According to THR, the pic owes a heavy debt to Gaspar Noe in one violent encounter; meanwhile Michael Mann and Nicolas Winding Refn duly pop up elsewhere in the palette. Tiff programmer Colin Geddes says director Johnson gives us a worthy UK cousin to Abel Ferrara’s Bad Lieutenant and The Guardian calls it an ambitiously scaled police-corruption thriller. Watch the clip below. The film also stars Stephen Graham (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), MyAnna Buring (Downton Abbey), Neil Maskell (Wild Bill), Elisa Lasowski (Somers Town) and Richard Dormer (Good Vibrations). Watch the clip below. Enjoy!

Gerard Johnson’s Thriller ‘Hyena’ to Open Edinburgh Film Festival

12 May 2014 8:07 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — Gerard Johnson’s thriller “Hyena” will open the Edinburgh Film Festival on June 18.

The film stars Peter Ferdinando (“Starred Up”) and Stephen Graham (“Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy”), MyAnna Buring (“Downton Abbey”), Neil Maskell (“Wild Bill”), Elisa Lasowski (“Somers Town”) and Richard Dormer (“Good Vibrations”).

Pic revolves around anti-hero Michael Logan (Ferdinando), a natural predator, and a complex mix of high-functioning addict and corrupt police officer, whose dark world is evolving. A recent influx of ruthless Albanian gangsters is threatening to change London’s criminal landscape. Logan’s razor sharp instincts have always kept him one step ahead, but now his increasingly self-destructive behavior and the sheer brutality of the new gang lords find him in a spiraling descent of fear and self-doubt.

Chris Fujiwara, Edinburgh’s artistic director, said: “It’s a powerful and beautifully directed thriller that clearly establishes director Gerard Johnson as a major talent in British filmmaking. »

Olivia Colman and Tom Hollander on Rev - the sitcom that has them rolling in the pews

14 March 2014 11:50 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

With none of the otherworldly airs or whisky-soaked vices of stereotyped TV priests, this thoughtful comedy shows the day-to-day reality of a religious calling: 'It's f***ing hard!'

"It was important to us that the priest is not represented as a complete idiot in the show," says Tom Hollander. He's sitting in the over-salubriously wallpapered surroundings of a Soho private members club alongside co-star and on-screen wife Olivia Colman. But they're here to talk about Rev, the thoughtful, slightly careworn sitcom that's returning for a welcome third series. "In previous incarnations," he continues, "whether it was Derek Nimmo or Rowan Atkinson or Father Ted, the priest or vicar is a bit of a twat. Adam Smallbone is the hero, with a very small 'h', of Rev. It's the people around him who are the oddballs."

The Reverend Adam Smallbone is fundamentally decent, but with none of the otherworldly airs of the stereotyped cleric. »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 2008

12 February 2014 4:14 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 13 Feb 2014 - 06:39

Our voyage through history's underappreciated films arrives at the year 2008 - another great year for lesser-seen gems...

For some, 2008 will be memorable as the year of The Dark Knight, with its astonishingly unhinged turn from the late Heath Ledger. Alternatively, it could be remembered as the year a legion Indiana Jones fans left cinemas glum-faced, having sat through Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull.

Elsewhere, Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan sang and danced on a Greek island in Mamma Mia!, while Will Smith played an alcoholic superhero in Hancock. But as usual, 2008 offered plenty of watchable movies outside the top 10, which is where we swoop in - like Hancock after a bottle of gin.

So as usual, here's our selection of 25 underappreciated films from the year 2008 - starting with a British horror film starring Michael Fassbender...
