  • The Guardian - TV News
Don your silk dresses for a grandiose new drama about a Jewish inventor recruited as a spy. Plus: more from Shane Meadows’ devastating The Virtues. Here’s what to watch this evening

Another grandiose drama from Stephen Poliakoff arrives swathed in expensive silk dresses and fleets of Rolls-Royces. Set in 1958, it tells the story of the Russia-born Jewish inventor and hearing-aid manufacturer Samuel Petrukhin (Toby Stephens), who is approached by MI5 agents keen to recruit him. Amid virulent antisemitism and obnoxious toffery, he is gathered up by Kathleen (Keeley Hawes), the wife of Richard Shaw MP (Linus Roache), and suddenly the cold war adventure starts to make sense.

Movie Review – Division 19 (2019)

Division 19, 2019.

Directed by S. A. Halewood

Starring Alison Doody, Clarke Peters, Linus Roache, and Jamie Draven.

Synopsis:

In the year 2039, the world has plunged into the loss of personal anonymity, and as a result, the prison system has altered in addition. This allows the general public to determine everything a prisoner does including what they eat and the conflict they will get into. But when this system gets into the hands of more people, the danger quickly rises.

From the first few opening minutes of Division 19, we see hyperactive editing styles, a jarring speech that comes out of nowhere, and blaring electronic disco music with a setup of what the story is about. It is within these introductory scenes that we get our first few hints that this may not be a good film at all. Unfortunately, these hints became reality as S. A. Halewood’s newest film is

The most successful is Panopticon TV, which is about to be rolled out to an entire town. When the most downloaded felon escapes, the authorities set a trap to reel him in. Linus Roache and Alison Doody star, with Jamie Draven, Lotte Verbeek, Clarke Peters, L. Scott Caldwell, and Will Rothhaar. Not surprisingly this looks instantly forgettable. Here's

Vikings Season 6: A Fan's Plea

Laura Akers Feb 12, 2019

Ahead of Vikings' final season, we urge the show to return to its former heights and give fans a fitting goodbye...

This article comes from Den of Geek UK.

Warning: contains spoilers for Vikings seasons one to five.

When I started reviewing Vikings a few years ago, I did so mostly to share my surprise. I, like others, had stayed away from this History Channel show because, well, being on the same channel as Storage Wars, Ice Truckers, and every Hitler quasi-documentary known to man, I assumed it was going to be a testosterone-fuelled mess. But eventually I tuned in because a friend told me to check it out and, you know, Vikings…

And what I found, to my delight and amazement, was something very different and altogether better than either the marketing or the context had suggested.

And so I spent the next two seasons

The Cult of Cults in Movies

Tom Jolliffe looks at cinema’s preoccupation with Cults…

Minor Spoilers Follow…

Film has always had a fascination with the odd. It delights in the macabre, the outsiders, and in portraying the sects who lurk off the grid, away from the rest of us. There was a particular shift toward the idea of cults especially after the Charles Manson murders. Whilst Manson’s cult was slightly against the grain (stereotypically most cults are religiously focused) it captured the attention of the World more than any before or since.

As we speak there are two films destined for cult status, currently being unleashed to audiences. Both place the antagonism squarely in the realm of Cults. On one hand we have the Nic Cage, kaleidoscopic, heavy metal album cover opus, Mandy. I’ve written briefly about this before, but to surmise, it’s amazing. Quite unlike anything I’ve seen before or likely will in the future.

AMC Networks’ Shudder has acquired exclusive streaming rights to Mandy, the Nicolas Cage-starring horror thriller that bowed to big buzz this year at the Sundance Film Festival. Rlje Films acquired the Panos Cosmatos-directed pic after its Park City bow and gave it a limited theatrical release in September, where it has been building a cult fan base thanks to its wild plot — Cage plays a man whose peaceful woodland existence with his wife is shattered by a nightmarish hippie cult and their demon-biker henchmen, propelling him into a spiraling, surreal rampage of vengeance. Andrea Riseborough and Linus Roache co-star in the pic produced by SpectreVision, Xyz Films and Umedia. The deal, which will target Shudder’s core genre aficionado subscriber base, also includes Canadian rights from Elevation Pictures. No premiere date on the streaming service has been set yet.
