Ethan Hawke is a frustratingly brilliant actor, who generally tends to make at least one good movie every single year (and no, Boyhood doesn’t count for 12 of those). But he’s also prone to making the occasional dud too, often starring in painfully mediocre films – such as recent endeavours Getaway or The Woman

Politicos, business titans and stars gathered for a press gala in the fall of 2012 to hear the big news: Joel Silver would bring his movie company to Venice’s historic post office. To hear the producer and his backers talk, the move would unleash a creative renaissance for both Silver and the beach community.
“The man who brought us ‘The Matrix,’ ‘Lethal Weapon’ and ‘Predator’ will have an address that matches his grand imagination,” Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa proclaimed to a crowd that included actor Tobey Maguire and former Yahoo chief Terry Semel, his longtime pal from their days at Warner Bros. Silver pledged to “help change the paradigm of Hollywood,” by turning a refurbished Venice post office into a creative hub, a center for technological innovation and a meeting place for friends and neighbors.
Nearly two and a half years after that elaborate rollout, though, work on Silver »

Walking into Predestination clean is perhaps the best advice to offer any cinephile willing to hunt down this likely future cult classic. It would be easy to just describe Predestination as Looper tossed in a blender with Minority Report, but the Spierig Brothers are going in a very different direction here. A direction that may lose a few viewers along the way.
Ethan Hawke plays a temporal agent, a time-traveling arm of the law that travels all through the ages to prevent killers from committing crimes. His next assignment, should it prove successful, will be the agent’s last. Problem with that is the criminal he is tasked with chasing is the one who has eluded him time after time. In his last tangle with the Fizzle Bomber (yes, the name sounds absurd, »

This is a reprint of our review from the 2014 SXSW Film Festival. There seem to be two Ethan Hawkes working in the movies these days, operating in parallel universes. They look the same and sound the same, but their choice in movies couldn't be more wildly different. There's the Ethan Hawke whose warm, naturalistic performances in things like "Boyhood" are amongst the best in the business, profoundly moving and deeply identifiable. Then there's the Ethan Hawke who makes things like the horror romp "Sinister," where his defining character trait is his oversized cable-knit sweater that he wears in every scene. Last year might have reached a "Back to the Future, Part II" paradox, with Hawke starring in both one of the year's best movies ("Before Midnight") and one of the worst ("Getaway"). So it makes sense that he would sign on to "Predestination," a twisty time travel adventure that deals in alternate timelines and parallel. »
