‘A Cure For Wellness’ Review

Stars: Dane DeHaan, Jason Isaacs, Mia Goth, Celia Imrie, Ivo Nandi, Adrian Schiller, Harry Groener | Written by Justin Haythe | Directed by Gore Verbinski

Lockhart (Dane DeHaan) is a cocky young executive working for a New York financial services firm. The board summons him and explains that there are unsavoury business shenanigans afoot. The source is an ex-board member, Pembroke (Harry Groener), who recently went Awol at a “wellness” retreat in the Swiss Alps. Lockhart is tasked with going there and bringing Pembroke home, so the board can pin the illegal activity on him.

But when Lockhart reaches the retreat, he struggles to find answers – or, indeed, Pembroke. He tries to depart, but a car accident leaves him with a broken leg. He’s stuck in the old castle, with its secret history, its “vitamin”-quaffing patients, and its menacing overlord, Dr. Volmer (Jason Isaacs). Lockhart meets Hannah (Mia Goth), a

Film Review: ‘A Cure For Wellness’ Provides a Much-Needed Temporary Fix

Chicago – Gore Verbinski is no stranger to the spooky. He always creates these tense, terror-filled scenes that effectively frighten us. His films, from “Ring” to “Rango”, each are compelling enough to keep our attention, not matter how absurd they transform into. Boy, does he ever deliver in the gorgeously grotesque “A Cure for Wellness.”

Rating: 3.0/5.0

I grew up in what can easily be considered the golden era of fucked up cartoons. My formative years were filled with outrageous, absurdist shows like “Ren & Stimpy,” “Rocko’s Modern Life,” “Aaahh!!! Real Monsters,” and “Courage the Cowardly Dog.“ Each of them probably has something to do with my macabre sensibilities and Gore Verbinski perfectly mirrors my own predilections. The most powerful part of any Verbinski is the visual storytelling and “A Cure for Wellness” proves that he works best when the camera tells the story for him. The best way to describe his

“A Cure for Wellness” is a beautiful looking and haunting mess

Normally in the early months of a given year, the mainstream wide releases leave a ton to be desired. Sure, there are decent enough ones if you look hard enough, but they’re usually safe genre outings, with more often than not the quality movies being independent releases. Ambition and ambitious filmmakers are in short supply. As such, even though A Cure for Wellness is only sporadically successful, the effort and uniqueness being put forth is worthy of commendation. Filmmaker Gore Verbinski goes all out in this hybrid body horror/mystery/thriller, leaving no odd stone unturned. I didn’t especially like it, but I’m oddly glad that it exists and that I saw it. Opening this week, it might just be a cult classic in the making. The plot is fairly hard to follow, unnecessarily so, even if it starts out rather simple. It follows an ambitious, overworked,

Vincent Piazza interview: Boardwalk Empire, Lucky Luciano

As Boardwalk Empire season 5 arrives on DVD, we chat to the man behind Charlie Luciano, Vincent Piazza

Warning: this article contains Boardwalk Empire spoilers.

When Boardwalk Empire wrapped production last year it wasn’t without disappointment, not least because for some characters there was a sense that things were only just getting started. Chief among those was Charlie ‘Lucky’ Luciano, whose actor, Vincent Piazza, spoke to us about father figures, droopy eyes and reverse-engineering a Sicilian bad boy...

The end of Boardwalk is quite a big one for Charlie. We’ve seen him grow from the impatient young hothead of 1920 to someone a little more world-weary and considered. How did you approach the task of showing that ten-year growth while keeping true to the character?

Thank you for that. It was always the hope that we’d be able to get to the arc where he’s beginning to find

Sunken City Movie Review
Title: Sunken City Director: Ryan McLaughlin Starring: Hamilton von Watts, Monique Gabriela Curnen, Vinicius Machado, Ivo Nandi, Cyrus Farmer, Richard Tyson, Spencer Garrett, Maz Jobrani, Evelina Turen, Alyssa Julya Smith One of the true delights of the Julien Dubuque International Film Festival, where it recently picked up a prize for Best Use of Music, “Sunken City” is an almost perfectly modulated low-budget indie with a keen sense of place. Fans of “The Big Lebowski” will appreciate and find reward in this loose-limbed crime comedy, which locates its sweet spot in stoner humor and dry send-up of noir conventions, as well as a strong lead performance. “Sunken City” unfolds in the Los Angeles [ Read More ]

Boardwalk Empire Season 4 - Episode 1 Review

Sadé Green reviews the first episode of Boardwalk Empire season 4....

The premier of the new season of Boardwalk Empire really didn't disappoint on Saturday as pretty much everything you'd expect from a Be episode was present: sex, death, extreme violence, dancing and a few lighter moments thrown in for good measure. A full one hour long, 'New York Sour' tried to cram in as many new story lines as humanly possible; unfortunately this made it a little bit too slow.

The central characters of Boardwalk Empire have all developed fantastically well over the last three seasons – so well in fact, that this episode was dominated by peripheral characters who have clearly climbed up to the big leagues. Although there are certainly no complaints here, all are definitely capable of holding any big intense scene as well as our main man, Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi).

So what's new in 1924?
