In a wide-ranging Q&A, Yorke described the new record as an anxiety-fueled electronic nightmare of a dystopian world — in other words, a Thom Yorke album. Author J.G. Ballard, avant-garde musician Scott Walker, and the improvisatory live shows of Flying Lotus all came up as influences,
Happy New Year Colin Burstead review
One of the similarities between this and Wheatley’s early work is its excelling cast. Led by earlier collaborator Neil Maskell (so brilliant as Jay in Kill List) as the titular Colin, along with the likes of I, Daniel Blake’s break-out Hayley Squires, Free Fire alumni Sam Riley
Working without his usual writing partner Amy Jump,
It’s a surprising choice, but then surprises are to be expected from the 75-year-old Canadian auteur, who has consistently evaded predictability across a five-decade career. “M. Butterfly” is rarely spoken of by critics as one of Cronenberg’s essential, or indeed quintessential, works: Reviews at the time were cool, and the film hasn’t built much of a revisionist following since. Yet Cronenberg is said to consider it among his most personal films. On closer inspection, you can see why. In an oeuvre that has
A year after they’d created one of the defining British gangster pictures with Get Carter, three Michaels – writer-director Mike Hodges, producer Michael Klinger and star Michael Caine – reunited for another crime picture, albeit with a more oddball flavor…
Caine plays Mickey King, a successful pulp novelist responsible for such titles as My Gun Is Long and The Organ Grinder,
But those prestige factors ultimately helped “Moonlight” stand out in the crowded fall season, and as Platform enters its third year, the movie’s track record has inevitably raised expectations for its potential.

One of the key proponents of this movement to teardown what he deemed “slums” for new, mammoth housing projects of concrete erasing the very communities they sought to “save” was New York’s Robert Moses. His power and reputation allowed him to force his ideas through the legislature for decades until Jacobs caught wind professionally and personally (he would eventually target her neighborhood). She ignited to take a stand and share her own beliefs in writing and via protest on city living, safety via “eyes on the street,” and the notion that cities are defined by its people,
The Hello America movie is being produced by Ridley Scott and his Scott Free production company, making this his second Netflix deal after the Tom Hardy-starring War Party. A director and cast for Hello America have not been announced yet.
Created by our friend Scout Tafoya over at RogerEbert.com, the piece explores how the director captures our pre-occupation with technology and how it may destroy us, and how the film’s characters find dangerous ecstasy in their desires. To wrap up, Tafoya says the film marks the “strongest, freest, and most giving chapter” of Cronenberg’s career, a sentiment I’d certainly agree with.
If you haven’t seen the film yet, we’d encourage one to seek it out,
The murder mystery is a well-worn genre, as comforting as slipping into a warm bath with a toaster that’s conveniently placed for a staging. There’s Clue, Murder on the Orient Express, Gosford Park — the list goes on. Notably, the first two of those examples have remakes upcoming, and the last is maybe the ultimate homage to the genre; despite the fact that each has cemented enough of a place in the pop cultural eye for all of us to know who committed the murder where and with what, a fascination with the whodunit persists. And why wouldn’t it? Caging a group of people in one place is the easiest way to ramp up tension; throwing in a murder to solve is the cherry on top of the cake. There is, however, an easy way to further up the ante.
Quentin Tarantino and Ben Wheatley’s most recent
Wheatley’s new movie Free Fire features an amazing ensemble cast that includes Brie Larson, Armie Hammer, Cillian Murphy, Sharlto Copley, Michael Smiley and more, as it sets up a gun deal that goes wrong and turns into a violent shoot out inside an abandoned warehouse.
The movie shows the amazing skills of Wheatley and Jump with terrific dialogue and some of the most insane action scenes,

When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth didn’t get much attention when released here early in March of 1971. Only film fanatics obsessed with special effects had much to say about it. Cinefantastique magazine showed a still photo or two of dinosaurs on the rampage, and told us that stop-motion effects notable Jim Danforth, who we knew from mentions in Famous Monsters, was attached. We also learned that an animator named David Allen had worked on one sequence.
Next up? Free Fire, a wildly stylish ensemble thriller that imagines a posse of gangsters, all housed up in an old Boston warehouse circa 1978, that turn on one and other when an arms deal goes south. If you’ll recall the blistering first trailer (see above), it’s shaping up to be an edge-of-your-seat white-knuckle ride – one with a cast to match.
Before the bullets start flying and a desperate fight to the death ensues, Free Fire
Free Fire review by Paul Heath, Tiff ’16.
Midnight Madness is something to be experienced at Toronto. The film’s ten-day programme contains a variety of different movies from many genres and films like The Raid and Green Room have played in the past . Opening the section this year is Ben Wheatley‘s assault on the senses Free Fire, a film which will also close this year’s BFI London Film Festival in October.
Set in one location and in real-time, the film revolves around a gun deal between two parties in a warehouse somewhere in 1970s Massachusetts. On the one side you have a group of Irish men, led by Cillian Murphy‘s moustached Chris, as well as Sam Riley‘s hapless junkie Stevo and Michael Smiley‘s intense Frank. Selling them the guns

Horror fans were in for a treat this morning when the Toronto International Film Festival unveiled its Midnight Madness line-up, which is the best ticket to a horror film that you can get, well, pretty much anywhere.
Whether you're attending the festival or not, it's still exciting to see what new films will be gracing a theatre screen sometime in the near future, but if you are able to attend, seeing the world premiere of a new horror flick in a crowd of die-hard horror aficionados at midnight is truly an experience not to be missed.
Today Tiff announced their line-ups for Midnight Madness, Vanguard (which is kind of like Mm's younger sibling, still including bizarre, daring,
