Drive (I) (2011)
Today, we’d like to showcase a behind the scenes conversation that happened between legendary director William Friedkin and “Drive” filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn for the making of the 40th Anniversary Collector’s Edition Blu-ray release of Friedkin’s underappreciated 1977 gem, “Sorcerer,” which arguably stands as probably the highlight of the whole disc.
David, a U.S. Army Special Operations Commander, distraught after losing his entire unit to a superhuman attack, wages an absolutely brutal one-man war on the eccentric billionaire and former superhero, Lance Cordrey, whom he believes is ultimately responsible. That is until Nelson Little, the head of a clandestine paramilitary outfit called Article 13, provides David with evidence that Cordrey may be a patsy, and David’s men were killed as part of a vast and twisted government/military conspiracy.

Jim (Damian Hill) has been given a deadline to pay back a substantial debt to a dangerous loan shark or face the consequences. His escape plan consists of backing a race horse, borrowing off friends, and dodging phone calls, but he doesn’t take into account the fact it’s his day to look after his young son (Tyler Perham), a turn of events that puts both of them at risk.
With its tale of fallible nice guy struggling to do right by his family, this Antipodean drama drives the same roads as Scott Cooper’s Out of Furnace, and on a surface level even recalls Kevin Costner kid in a car crime caper A Perfect World, but despite some wonderfully shot sequences and decent performances, West of Sunshine drifts along
The series, which centers on a global crime ring run out of Russia, was broadcast on the BBC in the U.K. and AMC in the U.S., and will go out in Russia on the country’s free-tv channel Friday. Starring James Norton, who had a major role in the BBC’s adaptation of
Returning from a six year hiatus after 2011’s We Need To Talk About Kevin, Scottish auteur Lynne Ramsay delivers a career best with a poetically fractured adaptation of Jonathan Ames’ novel You Were Never Really Here. Evoking a Joyce Carol Oates rhythm of a war veteran who’s been suffering from Ptsd symptoms since childhood and since morphed into a violently inclined assassin/enforcer, Ramsay streamlines B-genre narrative tropes into an efficient and emotionally potent psychological portrait which recalls the woozy style of Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive (2011) remixed with Paul… Read the rest

Apart from Fukunaga’s participation and similarities in tone, “The Alienist” is a quite different series, but it might appeal to many of the same television academy members who voted for “True Detective” or other crime series like “Boardwalk Empire” and “The Night Of.” Where season one
A magician doing illusions to solve crime is a fresh twist on the genre, Cutmore-Scott is a charming lead, the supporting cast is fantastic, and the magic seen in the pilot is really cool. But what’s this show titled? “Deception.”
That’s right, “Deception” — not to be mistaken for the 1946 film starring Bette Davis and Claude Reine, the 2008 film starring Ewan McGregor and Hugh Jackman, the 2013 NBC series about a lady detective investigating her childhood best friend’s murder, or countless other low-budget films over the years. “Deception” is a one-word title so generic and bland that by the end of this sentence, you’ll

“I think the movement of people is the biggest subject of the 21st century and nobody’s writing about it,” he said to IndieWire in a recent interview. “In the last few summers, we’ve had attempted mass migration from Libya, Syria, Iraq, Egypt, from everywhere. People are trying to get into Western countries. And obviously the West is trying to protect itself against the arrival of these people. This is going to play out in the coming years. I wanted to write about it as a matter of urgency.”
The four-hour drama stars the stellar Carey Mulligan (“Mudbound,” “Drive,” “An Education”) as Di Kip Glaspie, a detective investigating the shooting

A group of friends who meet regularly for game nights find themselves trying to solve a murder mystery.
The thing that surprised me the most about Game Night is how well-directed it is. Think about it, how many mainstream studio-backed comedies have good cinematography? Can you even name a scene in a comedy that was well-framed, lit or shot? Well, this one is – and that’s just the icing on the cake.
We follow the typical story of a man, Max (Jason Bateman), and a woman, Annie (Rachel McAdams) who meet at a bar on trivia night, fall in love and get married because there’s no one as competitive as them. They host
