Jim Carey Gets Serious in Murder Drama Dark Crimes [Trailer]

It's not too surprising to see Jim Carey step into darker material. It's said that comedians have a dark streak and Carey's has always lingered on the surface; more so than most.

Dark Crimes stars Carey as Tadek, a detective investigating the grizzly death of a salesman, who turns to an author and his novel, a novel which features a similar crime, for answers. Along with Carey, the movie also stars Marton Csokas and Charlotte Gainsbourg.

The movie is adapted from a David Grann story which appeared in The New Yorker a decade ago, and is directed by Greek director Alexandros Avranas who first caught my attention a number of years ago with Miss Violence (

Dark Crimes Trailer Pulls Jim Carrey Into a Deadly Underworld

Dark Crimes Trailer Pulls Jim Carrey Into a Deadly Underworld
The first trailer for Dark Crimes is here. While you may not have heard of Dark Crimes, or the insane true story that inspired the movie, you've almost certainly heard of Jim Carrey, who stars as the protagonist. Carrey hasn't been acting as much these days, but he returns in a very serious role as an obsessive cop in what looks to be a very gritty true-crime thriller.

Dark Crimes, originally titled True Crimes, is based on David Grann's 2008 New Yorker article titled True Crimes: A postmodern murder mystery. Director Alexandros Avranas (Love Me Not) brings the real-life tale to the screen, with Jim Carrey on board as a detective who becomes obsessed with a murder case. Given Carrey's level of commitment to certain roles he takes on, one has to imagine after watching this trailer that he might have put himself, and those around him, through the ringer while filming this,

Jim Carrey takes on an incredibly serious role in his latest film project Dark Crimes. The movie is a murder mystery crime thriller, in which Carrey plays a police officer who is hunting down a killer in the dark underworld of sex crimes.

We've seen Carrey make serious films before, but this one definitely looks like it could be his darkest yet. The story follows a police officer named Tadek, "who finds similarities between an unsolved murder and a crime outlined in a book by famed writer Krystov Kozlow (Martin Csokas). As Tadek begins to track Kozlow and his girlfriend, a mysterious sex club worker (Charlotte Gainsbourg), his obsession grows and he descends into an underworld of sex, lies, and corruption to find the shocking truth."

'Ismael's Ghosts' Review: French Drama Reminds You Why Marion Cotillard Is a Star

'Ismael's Ghosts' Review: French Drama Reminds You Why Marion Cotillard Is a Star
Arnaud Desplechin loves stories – the ones you show on a screen, the ones people regale others with that reveal delusions and dreams, the ones we tell ourselves in order to survive. A French filmmaker who's given us some of the warmest and most eccentric movies to come out of that country (My Sex Life ... or How I Got Into an Argument, Kings and Queen, A Christmas Tale), he's a director who loves to pile incident upon incident, propelling his characters from one dramatic pivot point to the next in the name of wreaking emotional havoc.

Discussing "Ismael's Ghosts" with Arnaud Desplechin

  • MUBI
Arnaud Desplechin and Marion Cotillard on the set of Ismael's Ghosts.If last year saw Olivier Assayas doing his version of a ghost story with Personal Shopper, this year, it apparently fell upon French contemporary Arnaud Desplechin to do the same with Ismael’s Ghosts. Anyone expecting Desplechin to go full genre, though, will likely be disappointed, which is to say that Ismael’s Ghosts isn't much of a ghost story—or at least not any more of a ghost story than any of his other films, from his debut feature, the beautifully titled La vie des morts (1991), to his most recent, the coming-of-age drama My Golden Days (2015). What is a ghost story, after all, except the present being haunted by the past? Drawing from a vast array of references, Desplechin weaves together stories and fragments of stories that shift to and fro with wild abandon. Here, Ismaël Vuillard (a

‘Ismael’s Ghosts’ Film Review: Marion Cotillard Haunts Fascinating Psychological Drama

‘Ismael’s Ghosts’ Film Review: Marion Cotillard Haunts Fascinating Psychological Drama
It’s not just that the woman (Marion Cotillard) goes missing for 21 years — registered as “absent” yet presumed dead — only to return and subsequently announce to a social services worker, “My name is Carlotta Bloom, and I’m back.” It’s not just that she’s named Carlotta, with all the “Vertigo” signaling that entails (there’s even a portrait of Carlotta for those keeping track). And it’s not just that she’s maddeningly opaque and slow to explain herself to her husband Ismael Vuillard (Mathieu Amalric) and his partner Sylvia (Charlotte Gainsbourg), or even to reveal herself as still alive to her...

Dancing with the past by Anne-Katrin Titze

Arnaud Desplechin with Mathieu Amalric: "What I love about the scene of the dance between Charlotte Gainsbourg (Sylvia) and Marion Cotillard (Carlotta) - is that Marion is on the side of life." Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

In the final installment of my conversation with the Ismael’s Ghosts: Director’s Cut (Les Fantômes D'Ismaël) director Arnaud Desplechin and his longtime star Mathieu Amalric (My Golden Days, La Sentinelle, Un Conte De Noël, Rois Et Rein, My Sex Life... or How I Got into an Argument, Jimmy P: Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian), we discuss the dance scene between Charlotte Gainsbourg and Marion Cotillard, Mathieu's performance of the theme from Alfred Hitchcock's Marnie, composer Grégoire Hetzel, the modesty of Ivan Dedalus (Louis Garrel), John Gielgud's character in Alain Resnais' Providence, and what could be the opposite of a scene from Woody Allen's Bananas.

Arnaud Desplechin on Hitchcock and Bergman’s Influence on ‘Ismael’s Ghosts,’ Catholicism, and Vaping

That each Arnaud Desplechin film has a way of responding to the one before it (and the one before that, and the one before that, and…) might account for the doubling- and tripling-back nature of my third conversation with the writer-director, who was in town this past October for a New York Film Festival screening of Ismael’s Ghosts, one of his knottiest works: a love story, a tragedy, a comedy, an overcooked movie-within-a-movie about espionage, Mathieu Amalric doing his bug-eyed thing that nobody does better. But Desplechin first told me about the film in 2015, describing it then as, essentially, a cross between Vertigo and the later novels of Philip Roth — both of whom come up herein — so where else would my mind travel but to where we’ve been? The length and direction of what follows should be evidence enough, or so I hope, of why I keep coming back.

2018 César Awards: ‘Bpm’ Triumphs With Six Wins, Including Best Film

2018 César Awards: ‘Bpm’ Triumphs With Six Wins, Including Best Film
“Bpm” triumphed at the César Awards, taking home the prizes for Best Film, Best Original Screenplay, Best Supporting Actor (Antoine Reinartz), Best Male Newcomer (Nahuel Pérez Biscayart), Best Original Score, and Best Editing. Robin Campillo’s drama about AIDS activists in Paris also won the Grand Prix at last year’s Cannes Film Festival, but wasn’t nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign-Language Film — a snub that was met with some controversy.

Andrey Zvyagintsev’s “Loveless,” which is nominated for the Oscar, won the equivalent award. Albert Dupontel’s “Au revoir là-haut” also had a big night, taking Best Director, Best Actress (Jeanne Balibar), and three other prizes. Full list of winners:

Berlin Film Review: ‘Touch Me Not’

Berlin Film Review: ‘Touch Me Not’
If anyone is shocked by “Touch Me Not,” they’re not getting the point. In her long-gestating first feature, Adina Pintilie uses bodies of all types to explore the boundaries of intimacy and challenge notions of beauty, which clearly wouldn’t be possible without a significant display of naked flesh. Whether she’s achieved that goal, however, will very much depend on the individual, as “Touch” is a divisive film that aims to address more issues than it can persuasively handle. Seamlessly blending fiction with reality, Pintilie invents a story about an Englishwoman grappling with intimacy issues and weaves in real people guiding her toward being comfortable with her body and the bodies of others.

At its core, the film surprisingly succeeds in nudging audiences to reassess what is and isn’t attractive, but that’s because the personality of Christian Bayerlein, a man crippled with spinal muscular atrophy, brings the viewer beyond how we perceive beauty

Official Us Trailer for 'Ismael's Ghosts' Starring Cotillard & Gainsbourg

"You no longer exist." Magnolia Pictures has debuted a new Us trailer for the upcoming theatrical release of Arnaud Desplechin's Ismael's Ghost, which was the opening night film at last year's Cannes Film Festival. Despite this honor, the film received mostly mediocre reviews and it's nothing special. It stars Mathieu Amalric as a filmmaker named Ismael, who is just about to begin shooting his next feature. However, his long lost former lover suddenly shows up out of nowhere, freaking him out, sending him into a mental "tailspin". Marion Cotillard plays his former lover, and Charlotte Gainsbourg plays his current lover, who also freaks out. The cast also includes Louis Garrel, Alba Rohrwacher, Hippolyte Girardot, and Samir Guesmi. I saw this in Cannes and forgot about it fairly quickly, even though I really do like the cast. Here's the official Us trailer (+ poster) for Arnaud Desplechin's Ismael's Ghost, direct from
