Home Entertianment: ‘Dark Crimes’ DVD Review

Everyone has an actor that they make an effort to watch everything that they produce, through thick and thin. For me, one of those actors is Jim Carrey. Many of his films were my favourite as a child and he is also one of the finer dramatic actors to have come out of the 90’s (The Truman Show stands as one of the all-time favourites). He is also an actor who is not very prolific this day and age, so when I catch wind of a Carrey movie on the horizon, I tend to track it down, even if the buzz isn’t, shall we say, enthusiastic.

That is very much the case with Dark Crimes, a film which has been sat on the shelf since 2016, already having had a muted release in the Us. If that paints a grim picture, it’s nowhere near as grim as the film itself.

Jim Carrey to Take a Break From Painting and Play the Villain in ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’

Jim Carrey to Take a Break From Painting and Play the Villain in ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’
Jim Carrey has made more headlines of late for his unflattering paintings of Donald Trump than he has for his movies, but that doesn’t mean he’s stopped acting. The two-time Golden Globe winner will return to the screen as the villainous Dr. Robotnik in the upcoming “Sonic the Hedgehog” movie.

Though best known for his comedies and occasional dramatic turns (“Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”), Carrey has also portrayed his share of darker characters: “Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events” found him playing the devious Count Olaf, and “The Cable Guy” showed how quickly laughter can turn into screams.

Familiar to anyone who had a Sega Genesis in the early ’90s, Robotnik is distinguished by his rotund frame and large mustache; Carrey in costume will surely be a sight to behold. Jeff Fowler is directing the adaptation of the famed video game, which will blend

Wild thoughts: what do wilderness films tell us about our sheltered lifestyles?

Films such as Leave No Trace that profess to be about an alternative way of life have more in common with the suburbia of The Truman Show than they seem

When I see a movie about people trying to live alternative lifestyles, I think of the travel agency Jim Carrey visits in The Truman Show, with its alarming poster of an airliner getting struck by lightning, accompanied by the slogan: “It Could Happen To You!” A similar deterrent seems to be in operation whenever people reject conventional ways of living in the movies. More often than not, the parents go crazy, the kids are screwed up and you come out of the cinema thinking: “Well, I’m glad I didn’t try that!”

For all its merits, Debra Granik’s latest film Leave No Trace can’t help but agree. It’s the story of a father and teenage daughter

‘The Truman Show’ at 20: Jim Carrey’s Best Movie is Still Delightful and Philosophically Rich
In 1994, Jim Carrey broke big, starring in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, The Mask, and Dumb and Dumber, three box office toppers that catapulted the rubbery-faced comedian to global superstardom. There’s an entire generation of kids that went around quoting those movies, repeating Ace’s catchphrase of “Alrighty then!” while affecting the same overly confident voice […]

The Americans Season 6 Episode 9 Review: Jennings, Elizabeth

So much comes down to The Americans Season 6 Episode 9, and when reactions don't meet expectations, it's enough to drive someone insane.

Sure enough, that someone is me, the Soviet sympathizer.

I'll blame it on my heritage, but after six seasons, The Americans swayed me toward the other side.

It would have been difficult to explain that Communism isn't my cup of tea to people who didn't understand the nuances of what was happening behind the Soviet curtain, though. That much is clear by watching the penultimate episode of The Americans.

Before getting further into that, let's take a minute to realize there is only one more time to hear the theme music with new content to follow. There is only one more time you can sit eagerly on the edge of your couch waiting for the end note of what is the Jennings' lives to play out on television.

Jim Carrey movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Eternal Sunshine,’ ‘Truman Show,’ ‘Dumb and Dumber’
The latest Jim Carrey film entitled “Dark Crimes” casts him as a detective investigating the murder of a prominent businessman. The film was made in Poland and offers a dark subject matter and role for the once former stand-up comedian.

Carrey wanted to perform from a very young age and when he was just 10 years old wrote to “The Carol Burnett Show” offering his services as an impressionist. While his request was politely declined it would only be another decade before Carrey was all over television with his antic comedic act. He ultimately achieved the brass ring for comedians of this era when he got to appear on “The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson.” In 1984 the 22-year-old Carrey was cast as the lead in a TV series called “The Duck Factory” which was supposed to be a star-making vehicle for the actor.

‘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.

With ‘Jim & Andy’, Chris Smith Charts Jim Carrey’s Eerie Transformation Into Andy Kaufman For ‘Man On The Moon’

Of late, Jim Carrey has been exploring a newfound passion for political cartooning, but for now he remains better known as one of the most popular comedic actors in Hollywood history. His credits range from Ace Ventura: Pet Detective to Dumb and Dumber, The Truman Show and Man on the Moon, the 1999 Milos Forman film in which he played the late comedian Andy Kaufman. A video crew followed Carrey around on the set of the latter project as he embodied Kaufman and Kaufman's…
