Ethan Hawke movies: 14 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Boyhood,’ ‘Training Day,’ ‘First Reformed’

Ethan Hawke movies: 14 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Boyhood,’ ‘Training Day,’ ‘First Reformed’
It’s hard to believe, but four-time Academy Award nominee Ethan Hawke has celebrated over three decades in the film business. Hawke made his film debut in Joe Dante‘s 1985 film, “Explorers” and 33 years later has received some of the best reviews of his career for 2018’s “First Reformed,” which is currently playing in theaters across the country.

Although an accomplished Tony-nominated stage actor, Hawke is primarily celebrated for his work in movies. He is one of the few performers who has been a double Oscar nominee in both the acting category (“Training Day” and “Boyhood”) and writing (“Before Sunrise” and “Before Midnight”). Hawke has also been nominated for two Screen Actors Guild Awards (“Training Day” and “Boyhood”), as well as a Golden Globe nod for “Boyhood.”

Unquestionably, Hawke’s most notable film collaborations have been with writer/director Richard Linklater, who had the ability to bring out something extra in him.

‘Anon’ Review

Stars: Clive Owen, Amanda Seyfried, Colm Feore, Sonya Walger, Mark O’Brien, Joe Pingue, Iddo Goldberg, Sebastian Pigott, Rachel Roberts, Ethan Tavares, Marco Grazzini, Conrad Coates | Written and Directed by Andrew Niccol

Writer-director Andrew Niccol has made a career out of depicting tech-enhanced dystopias, whether it’s his 1997 debut Gattaca (genetic engineering), his script for The Truman Show (reality TV taken to extremes) or 2002′s S1m0ne, which now seems weirdly prescient in its anxiety over digitally augmented reality. His latest film, sci-fi murder mystery Anon, finds Niccol on familiar ground when it comes to tech-based paranoia, but the plot falls short in comparison to the imaginative world building.

Set in an all-too-believable future, the film stars Clive Owen as world-weary detective Sal Frieland, whose job has been rendered ridiculously easy because all crimes are almost instantly solvable, thanks to an implant called the eye that uploads every citizen

Anon Review

Technology and social issues are no strangers to writer/director Andrew Niccol, a filmmaker who has dabbled with these issues previously in Gattaca, Good Kill even The Truman Show. Niccol visits the themes of privacy and security with a stylistic tone adding a modern crime thriller noir element to smooth out the edges; no matter how slick it looks to the eye there is no glossing over the fact this low budget offering is cold-heartedly flawed.

Set in a future where digital information on each individual is readily available at the blink of an eye. Clive Owen takes on the role of Sal Frieland, a sharp-suited, divorced, hard-drinking detective with his own deep-seated issues surrounding the loss of his son. In Niccol’s future, every minor move we make, thought we have, memory we create and crime we commit is digitally stored in The Ether, a data storage system we access through our own being.

New clip from Andrew Niccol’s ‘Anon’

From the pioneering mind of Academy Award nominated filmmaker Andrew Niccol comes Anon; his latest meditation on the fraught relationship between technology and humanity starring Clive Owen and Amanda Seyfried

In a modern world where advanced biosyn implants mean everyone is subjected to a relentless visual stream of information they call the ‘Mind’s Eye’, privacy and anonymity as we know it has vanished. With everyone’s personal information on public display and each person’s life recorded down to the millisecond, personal information is downloaded to a vast grid called ‘The Ether’, a database which law enforcement can access and use to prosecute criminals.

In Anon, Sal Frieland (Clive Owen), is faced with a series of shocking murders which appear to be linked. Unable to identify the killers it soon becomes apparent that what they have in common signals a major breakdown in the system on which society has come to rely.

Exclusive: Clive Owen and Andrew Niccol talk Anon and they effect of social media on privacy

Andrew Niccol is a writer and director known for binding technology and social issues within his filmmaking arsenal. Projects such as Gattaca, In Time and even the Jim Carrey lead The Truman Show (which he wrote) have delved into the subject with complex concepts that continue to fascinate. His latest, starring Clive Owen and Amanda Seyfried is Anon. On the surface it’s a whodunnit crime investigation however its concept of technological security and privacy are at its very foundation.

In Anon Sal Frieland (Clive Owen) is faced with a series of shocking murders which appear to be linked. Unable to identify the killers it soon becomes apparent that what they have in common signals a major breakdown in the system on which society has come to rely.

As he delves into the case, Frieland encounters a woman seemingly with no identity (Amanda Seyfried). Something he initially assumes is a

Exclusive Interview – Clive Owen and Andrew Niccol on Anon

Andrew Niccol admits he’s been considering a story about privacy and secrecy for some time. It’s a theme that lends itself to a futuristic setting – familiar territory for the creator of Gattaca and The Truman Show – and his latest, Anon, is placed fairly and squarely in the near future. Released this Friday, 11th May, the film stars Clive Owen as a cop hunting a killer in a society where crime hardly exists, because everybody’s information and memories are stored digitally. Access to them is easy – especially for the authorities.

Talking to Flickering Myth’s Freda Cooper, Owen and Niccol both admit they could never have anticipated just how topical the film has become. Its theme doesn’t so much echo as proclaim the recent Facebook controversy so that, well before the its release, everybody was talking about it without even knowing.

One More Time: Netflix's Us Trailer for Augmented Reality Film 'Anon'

"Who can hack a human being?" One more trailer for the indie sci-fi film Anon, written and directed by sci-fi storyteller Andrew Niccol. We posted another trailer earlier this year, and a new international trailer this week already. This new Us trailer from Netflix presents the story entirely differently - about hackers and hacking our augmented reality, and how one of them is getting away with murders by erasing memories. Clive Owen plays a cop investigating a series of unsolved murders, who meets a mysterious hacker woman known as "The Girl" - Amanda Seyfried. This also stars Colm Feore, Sonya Walger, Mark O'Brien, Joe Pingue, Iddo Goldberg, and Sebastian Pigott. This actually looks good, I'm planning to watch once it's available - starting in early May on Netflix.

New International Trailer for Andrew Niccol's 'Anon' with Clive Owen

"We can't control what we can't see." Another new international trailer has debuted for the indie sci-fi film Anon, written and directed by sci-fi storyteller Andrew Niccol. We posted another trailer earlier this year, and it still looks very intriguing. The film is about a near-future where there is no privacy or anonymity, where even private memories are recorded in an effort to cut down on crime. Clive Owen plays a cop investigating a series of unsolved murders, who meets a hacker woman known as "The Girl", played by Amanda Seyfried. She has no identity, no history and no record. Also starring Colm Feore, Sonya Walger, Mark O'Brien, Joe Pingue, Iddo Goldberg, and Sebastian Pigott. I'm usually interested in whatever Niccol makes, especially if it's full-on sci-fi, and I'm fascinated by this. That digitized filmmaking style with augmented reality Pov is crazy cool. Check this out. Here's a second international

‘Anon’ Trailer: Amanda Seyfried and Clive Owen Try to Survive in a World Where Privacy Doesn’t Exist

‘Anon’ Trailer: Amanda Seyfried and Clive Owen Try to Survive in a World Where Privacy Doesn’t Exist
Gattaca” and “In Time” director Andrew Niccol is sticking with the science-fiction genre in his upcoming feature, “Anon.” The high-concept thriller is set in a world where the government has eliminated privacy, which has resulted in total government surveillance on the public and de facto self-censorship. Clive Owen plays a police officer who becomes the target of a hacker named The Girl (Amanda Seyfried).

Anon” marks a reunion between Seyfried and Niccol after “In Time” in 2011. The director’s last release, “Good Kill,” starred Ethan Hawke and premiered at the 2014 Venice Film Festival. “Anon” made headlines at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival when Netflix purchased U.S. and some foreign rights to the title for $4 million.

The streaming giant has not issued a release date for the film, but Altitude Films will be opening “Anon” in U.K. theaters May 11. The distributor has released an official trailer below.

20 Best Heady Sci-Fi Films: Part 1

  • Cinelinx
In honor of the 50th anniversary of 2001: A Space Odyssey, we make our picks for the best cerebral science fiction films of all time. Here are picks #20 - 11.

The job of science fiction is to push boundaries. Indeed, the very description of science fiction suggests going a bit further than established fact. Science fiction is supposed to build on the known world around us. It is supposed to explore the unknown. When science fiction is at its best, this exploration is being fueled by our own human condition. The reason we are exploring outward is because there is an uncertainty inside. We feel incomplete in some regard, and the answers might be out there.

Science fiction films that can best communicate the relationship between the universe and our own minds tend to be the films that leave a lasting impression. This is my pick for the 20 films that do the best job of this.

Anon Trailer: Andrew Niccol Creates a World Without Privacy in Latest Thriller

The first trailer for Andrew Niccol's tech thriller Anon has dropped and, as always with Niccol, he's got me intrigued. While his films (Gattaca, Lord of War) don't always turn out to be winners, he continues to explore intriguing sci-fi ideas (ahem, In Time). Anon is set in a Soviet-style near-future where the government is trying to fight crime by eliminating privacy, thus creating total surveillance and de facto self-censorship. A police officer named Sal Frieland (Clive Owen) is doing his best to fight crime in his city but things take a huge turn when he meets a hacker known as "The Girl" (Amanda Seyfried). Anon was also written by Niccol and co-stars Colm Feore, Sonya Walger, Mark O'Brien, Joe Pingue, Iddo Goldberg, and Sebastian...
