Film Review: Jim Carrey in ‘Dark Crimes’

Film Review: Jim Carrey in ‘Dark Crimes’
In “Dark Crimes,” Jim Carrey wears a grayish beard, cropped hair, and the jacket and turtleneck of a silently dissident Slavic literature professor from the mid-’60s. His character, named Tadek, is actually a Polish police officer, and Carrey speaks in an accent that’s so whispery and vague I got the feeling that if he were playing a Polish plumber back in his “In Living Color” sketch-comedy days, he might have worked that much harder to make his inflections authentic.

Tadek is a detective who got demoted to the lowly job of records-room clerk after a botched investigation. Desperate to win back his status, and his dignity, too, he seizes on a murder case that no one else will touch, maybe because it involves a sex club frequented by his boss. Throughout “Dark Crimes,” Carrey broods and stares like an actor who’s out to muffle any hint of

With Trailers and Premieres, Lars von Trier Promises Audiences a Savage “House That Jack Built”

For anyone keeping tabs on the international film scene, two of the biggest announcements of the 71st Cannes Film Festival came a week after this year’s official lineup of films competing for the coveted Palme d’Or was unveiled. The first: Terry Gilliam’s The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, after decades of disastrous production issues and legal battles that seemingly threatened to put Mr. Gilliam in an early grave, would close the festival. The other: Lars von Trier, the notorious enfant terrible of Danish cinema and a general staple of the Cannes scene, would walk the Croisette seven years after his unprecedented ban – as a fast reminder, when he premiered Melancholia in 2011, amidst the horrified looks adorning the faces of Kirsten Dunst and Charlotte Gainsbourg, Mr. von Trier suggested he “understood” Adolf Hitler and sympathized with the Nazi ideology because of his German ancestry, leading to his immediately

Movie Review – Dark Crimes (2018)

Dark Crimes, 2018.

Directed by Alexandros Avranas.

Starring Jim Carrey, Martin Csokas, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Kati Outinen, Vlad Ivanov, Agata Kulesza, Robert Wieckiewicz, Piotr Glowacki, and Zbigniew Zamachowski.

Synopsis:

A murder investigation of a slain businessman turns to clues found in an author’s book about an eerily similar crime. Based on the 2008 article “True Crimes – A postmodern murder mystery” by David Grann.

If someone were to tell you that the latest Jim Carrey movie sees him as a Polish police detective investigating an unsolved murder of a VIP (the film isn’t really concerned with details about this apparent businessman) who frequently visited sex dungeons, it would be difficult to blame you for assuming it’s the latest in his line of kooky comedies featuring animated performances built on goofy facial expressions and voice accents. Oddly enough, those typical Jim Carrey tics do exist in this much more quiet and nuanced

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
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,

'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
