The Hide: U.S DVD review

7 September 2011 1:03 PM, PDT | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

Director: Marek Losey. Review: Adam Wing. An absorbing thriller set against the backdrop of the Suffolk countryside, not exactly words we’re used to hearing but there you have it. How about the words ‘bird watching’ and ‘sociable plover’ combined with the phrases ‘must see movie’ and ‘macabre gem’? Thought not. Marek Losey has an uphill battle on his hands with The Hide, and even though success seems more unlikely than the sighting of that elusive bird, the movie itself remains a riveting drama that deserves your full attention. Roy Tunt (Alex MacQueen) is a quirky loner who spends his days in a ‘hide’ - a secluded seaside shelter where he watches and documents the many species of birds that pass over the shoreline. His only company is a short-wave radio, a portrait of ex-wife Sandra and his chicken paste sandwiches. One gloomy day, his meticulous routine is interrupted by »

12 August 2011 4:01 AM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

*full disclosure: a screener of this film was provided by Breaking Glass Pictures.

Director: Marek Losey.

Writer: Tim Whitnall.

The Hide is one of these films where this reviewer would love to jump right into the spoilers. However, this would ruin the film for others. As background, The Hide was produced in 2008 on the Isle of Sheppey. Then, this title was released in the United Kingdom in 2009. Initially The Hide was a stageplay titled "The Sociable Plover" and now this material will find itself on DVD September 6th in North America, through Breaking Glass Pictures. This is a tense thriller. Starring Alex MacQueen as Roy and Phil Campbell as Dave, The Hide utilized the three unities of Aristotle, while providing some mysterious interplay between the two characters. There are only a very few film details that hamper the enjoyment of this film.

Breaking Glass Pictures’ Vicious Circle Films label will release director Marek Losey’s The Hide on DVD September 6th. The taut thriller follows a lonesome birdwatcher who encounters a man on the run while in the isolated mudflats of Suffolk.

One gloomy day his meticulous routine is interrupted by the arrival of David (Phil Campbell), a mysterious man on the run from the police. Though Roy is at first hostile toward the intruder, the two men gradually let their guards down and find themselves engaged in deep discussion through which they form a strange bond. But as the police draw near, both Roy and David unleash their dark sides, and the escalating tension pushes them to a tragic conclusion. »

Jason Solomons's Trailer Trash

19 March 2011 5:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Alex MacQueen scores a hat-trick, and the zest of youth that has nothing on the teachers

Hat-trick hero

It's a feat even Zelig couldn't pull off. English actor Alex MacQueen is not just appearing in Woody Allen's latest release, You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger (as publisher Malcolm Dodds) – he also has cameos in two other British films that hit the screens last Friday. He pops up in Chalet Girl, as a lecherous hedge-fund manager getting an embarrassing ski-sunglasses tan. Plus he makes the final cut in one scene of Adam Deacon's Anuvahood, playing a posh man living in a big house opposite the west London council estate where the action takes place.

Appearing in three films in a single week is possibly a record for a British actor. There must be a multiplex somewhere showing all three and it may seem that MacQueen is there in person, »
