10 years after a global economic collapse, a hardened loner pursues the men who stole his only possession, his car. Along the way, he captures one of the thieves' brother, and the duo form an uneasy bond during the dangerous journey.
It's the Wild West, circa 1870. Samuel Alabaster, an affluent pioneer, ventures across the American frontier to marry the love of his life, Penelope. As his group traverses the west, the once-simple journey grows treacherous, blurring the lines between hero, villain and damsel.
Riding across Manhattan in a stretch limo in order to get a haircut, a 28-year-old billionaire asset manager's day devolves into an odyssey with a cast of characters that start to tear his world apart.
This movie chronicles the story behind the 1955 LIFE Magazine photo thread by Dennis Stock of then-rising star, James Dean, and gives us an inside look at some of Hollywood's most iconic images and into the life of a gifted, but troubled man.
James Dean's article written for LIFE Magazine was not very popular at the time when it was first released. See more »
Dennis Stock (Robert Pattinson) appears to look at the back of the camera after each shot, throughout the movie. In modern times with a digital camera this would make sense as it would show a preview of shot just taken , but with film cameras this does not apply. There is nothing to see. See more »
I don't wanna play their stupid game.
You don't have to. I mean, just let me help you. I got 30 million people reading LIFE Magazine... and we do, we do a great shoot...
Wait a minute, wait a minute! You think you're giving me something that's not alerady comin' my way? I lose myself in my roles! I don't wanna lose myself in all this other stuff. And you are this other stuff.

The problem with this movie is that neither DeHaan, nor Pattinson hold the attention of the audience. The script is nondescript, and the directing cannot make up for the lack of a compelling story and characterization.
DeHaan looks like a childish version of Dean with his unlined face, rounded cheeks, feathered, rubbable hair and those full, pink lips.
Dean was young, but had an old soul reflected in his lined face, sunken eyes, and impossibly attractive visage. Even James Franco -- much as I detest that actor -- was better than DeHaan. The story had no real climax... its twin journeys (of the co-protagonists) made shallow and dull via the absence of any real conflict or urgency of mission.
I'm sure Corbijn had good intentions.
I gave this one a four.
