The Endless Review [Tribeca 2017]

Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead’s The Endless is an assertion of talents in the most curious, explorative way. Minds are unlocked, souls are bared and fears are shared. The duo’s feature debut – Resolution – introduces an almighty presence with the power to paralyze, and in The Endless, they grab its demon horns. A Lovecraftian quote about our strongest fears being of this “great unknown” leads directly to the introduction of two familiar faces (Benson and Moorhead’s Resolution cameos), and from there, reality becomes their sandbox. A human notion of cyclical apathy that numbs the senses is put on trial, while their magnificent mindf#*k teases and intensifies with poetic command. Never bleak, always engaging and cognizant on levels that other films can’t even pretend to understand. That’s how BenHead does it.

In addition to multiple on-and-off-set tasks – probably including craft services – both Benson and Moorhead reprise

In today’s casting round-up, THR reports that Jamie Dornan, Ben Mendelsohn, and sisters Jemima and Lola Kirke will be teaming together for the indie drama Untogether, the directorial debut of best-selling author Emma Forrest. The film concerns Jemima Kirke’s former-teen-prodigy-turned-junkie Andrea, who has an affair with Nick (Dornan) while she’s clean and trying to be a writer. Nick is already a successful writer, regaling the world with stories of his war-time experiences. Lola Kirke plays Jemima’s younger sister, whose relationship with the older Mendelsohn is tested when she falls for a Rabbi with an even larger age gap than her and Mendelsohn. Forrest will pen the script as well, which is being produced by Luke Daniels, Scott Lastaiti, and Brandon K. Hogan.

THR is also reporting that Michael Cera is currently in discussion to star in Aaron Sorkin‘s directorial debut Molly’s Game, alongside Jessica Chastain and Idris Elba.

Exclusive Interview With The Cast And Crew Of “Bonestorm” On V/H/S: Viral

While I enjoyed most of V/H/S: Viral, not really wanting to play favorites, there’s no denying the frantic awesomeness of a little segment called “Bonestorm.” My best goes out to Nacho Vigolondo, Gregg Bishop and Marcel Sarmiento for their respective horror shorts, but Spring/Resolution filmmakers Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead have done the unthinkable and challenged previous V/H/S favorite “Safe Haven” for franchise supremacy. Starting out with a group of skateboard punks looking to record a sick demo, the segment quickly becomes a video-game-esque shoot ‘em up I dubbed “Skater Punk Call Of Duty.” Once Benson and Moorhead hit their stride, there’s no competition amidst the skull-crushing gore, crazy cultists and evil monsters, which you can read about in my Fantastic Fest review of V/H/S: Viral.

Benson and Moorhead were mainstays at this year’s Fantastic Fest, having both V/H

With no set schedule or destination plan in place, he ends up on the coast of Italy, where he meets and falls in love with a beautiful woman named Louise.

“When his ailing mother dies, Evan (Lou Taylor Pucci, of the recent Evil Dead) realizes his life isn’t going anywhere.
