Hail, Caesar! Trailer


Ever since his wonderful appearance in Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel, we've been waiting for Ralph Fiennes to take up a similar role that shows a completely different side to the actor, now it looks like the Coen Brothers have given the actor such a role. Laurence Lorenz is an eccentric film director who finds himself caught up in a fiasco when Hollywood superstar Baird Whitlock is kidnapped.

Sunset Song Review

Excellent

This isn't your usual period movie. A powerfully emotional depiction of rural Scottish life at the turn of the 20th century, Terence Davies' drama is both strikingly earthy and artfully beautiful. Based on the classic 1932 novel by Lewis Grassic Gibbons, it's a gritty story that takes a deeply personal approach to both the time and place, building complex characters that are so easy to identify with that we feel each surge of happiness and heartbreak.

It's set in The Mearns, in the Scottish north east, where Chris Guthrie (Agyness Deyn) grew up on her family farm hoping to one day become a teacher. But her perpetually pregnant mother (Daniela Nardini) simply can't take any more of this, and her sensitive brother Will (Jack Greenlees) moves to get away from their hardened father John (Peter Mullan), leaving Chris to care for him. Eventually she ends up running the farm herself, and finally finds some happiness when she falls for nice-guy neighbour Ewan (Kevin Guthrie). She worries about him becoming like her father, but their marriage is blissfully sweet. Until the Great War breaks out and he enlists to join the fight.

The story's main focus is on the way the demands of life change us in both obvious and subtle ways. This gives the film a complexity that gets deep under the skin, making the themes timeless while also challenging preconceptions. For example, instead of just being a villainous brute, John's violence might be a symptom of his experiences. And Chris' tough-minded tenacity may come from the same place that pushed her mother over the edge. Like us, these are people trying to steer their destinies in the face of everyday pressures and the forces of nature. And yet the film never feels terribly bleak. It's hard and gruelling, but also hopeful.

Hail, Caesar! Trailer


Eddie Mannix is a fixer who works in Hollywood where he tames celebrities and keeps theirs, and movie studios', secrets out of the press - no matter how big the story. It's not the easiest job in the world, and it's certainly not always the most morally fulfilling, but it's about to get a whole lot harder when one studio, Capitol Pictures, presents him with a major problem the likes of which could be career destroying. They're working on a huge production epic entitled 'Hail, Caesar!' starring Hollywood sensation Baird Whitlock, but things go particularly awry when he is kidnapped and held for ransom by a mysterious group known only as The Future. They want $100,000, and after 24 hours, the studio aren't looking any more hopeful. Mannix enlists a feisty and beautiful female star to procure the money, while Whitlook finds himself in a most unusual situation.

Model Turned Actress Agyness Deyn's 'Electricity' Divides The Critics


Agyness Deyn

Model Agyness Deyn has taken the first step in becoming a fully fledged actress with the lead role in British indie flick Electricity. In the film, directed by Bryn Higgins, Deyn stars as Lily, a Lancashire girl suffering from epilepsy who, after her mother’s death, journeys to London in search of her missing brother.

The Evening Standard’s Charlotte O’Sullivan described Deyn’s performance as “blistering” and feels the film, “works primarily as a vehicle for Deyn.” Adding that “It makes you long to see her in Terence Davies’s Sunset Song”, which is currently in post-production.

Electricity Review


OK

With an artful aesthetic that will please fans of ambitious independent filmmaking, this British drama struggles to match its lush imagery with an oddly simplistic script. Even as it addresses epilepsy with an insider's knowing perspective, the strong, fresh cast never gets to bring out much depth in the characters. Which leaves the movie feeling like little more than an exercise in whizzy camerawork and swirly editing.

It begins in Blackpool, where Lily (Agyness Deyn) is resolutely refusing to update her epilepsy meds, because the new ones make her feel fuzzy. But this means she has frequent seizures. And they only get worse after her mother dies. With help from her boss (Tom Georgeson), she tracks down her big brother Barry (Paul Anderson), who tells her he's planning to sell Mum's house and divide the cash between them. But Lily thinks their black-sheep brother Mikey (Christian Cooke) deserves his share, even though he disappeared four years ago. So she travels to London to find him, having key encounters with a homeless girl (Saffron Coomber), a kindly stranger (Lenora Crichlow) and eventually a sexy young man (Ben Batt) who may know where Mikey is.

The title refers to Lily's seizures, which she describes as an electrical explosion in her brain, and filmmaker Bryn Higgins uses inventive imagery and editing to take the audience right into her perspective. These scenes are harrowing and moving, even if there's no real sense of peril. Not only do we never doubt that Lily will be OK, but we get increasingly annoyed by her nagging naivete in misunderstanding everything and everyone around her. Surely fixing her dosage would help her avoid these devastating seizures. The actors manage to make the most of these oddly underwritten roles as people using whatever is at hand to cope with their miserable lives.

One of the most respected independent awards ceremonies on the circuit, the 22nd annual Gotham Independent Film Awards took place last night (November 26, 2012) at the Capriani in New York, seeing both established stars and rising up and comers rubbing shoulders.

Hot Tickets! This Weekend's Movie Releases: Cloud Atlas, Chasing Mavericks, Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, Pusher


Tom Hanks Gerard Butler Agyness Deyn

Can Paranormal Activity 4 and Argo be shifted from the top of the US Box Office? It's slim pickings this week, in terms of big money releases but if any movie is going to do it, it will be Cloud Atlas, the sprawling adaptation of David Mitchell's novel. We'll also look at the rest of this week's main releases: Chasing Mavericks, Silent Hill: Revelation 3D and Pusher.

Cloud Atlas has been getting some heavy promotion over the last few weeks, so curiosity, at the very least, should get movie fans into the theaters this week. The movie's producers will be hoping that this is the case, because the film is on thin ice with the critics, having scored a shaky 60% on the Rotten Tomatoes site. The general consensus seems to be that although the movie is well made, it could have done with a firmer editorial hand. Claudia Puig summed it up by saying "The cumulative effect is one of spectacle over substance."

Pusher Review


Weak

This film may look sleek and urgent, but it never feels like anything more than a run-of-the-mill London drugs thriller. The cast is good, and the imagery is striking, but it never adds anything new to the genre. And it certainly doesn't have the bracing impact of the original 1996 film, which introduced the world to Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive).

It centres on the young drug dealer Frank (Coyle), who with his friend Tony (Webb) is trying to bring a huge stash of drugs from Amsterdam to London. The cops are brutally trying to force Frank into turning in evidence against his supplier Milo (Buric), which puts him in a very bad position. With Milo's henchman (Ferda) breathing down his neck, Frank tries to call in his debts and raise enough cash so he and his stripper girlfriend Flo (Deyn) can get away. But all of his plans seem to go awry, which strains his relationship with Flo because he doesn't want to tell her the truth.

This is one of those movies in which events squeeze in on the central character from every side, forcing him to increasingly desperate actions. And Spanish director Prieto has a lurid visual style that jolts the screen with energy, even if it leaves everything feeling rather superficial. Coyle finds Frank's intriguing edges, playing him as a cocky nice guy whose confidence is beaten out of him. As he becomes a shell of himself, we have quite a bit of sympathy with him. So it's a shame that we never really feel much chemistry between Frank and Flo.

Agyness Deyn Stars As A Stripper In New Movie 'Pusher'


Agyness Deyn Nicolas Winding Refn

We are far more used to seeing Agyness Deyn on the runway, swathed in the world's most sumptuous fabrics and being adored and revered, not working as a stripper in a seedy club. However that's exactly the character, named Flo, that Deyn plays in the brand new remake of the 1996 Danish film 'Pusher'.

Nicolas Winding Refn directed the original and has opted to produce this new English language version. The plot follows Frank (played by Richard Coyle), a drug dealer with a sidekick called Tony (Bronson Webb). Frank is at a loss as to how to pay back the 'local kingpin' for some lost gear. All of this spirals down into bloody violence. Refn chose to give the stripper, Flo, a bigger part in this remake and intends to gear the sequel towards her and her story in Las Vegas, so reports the Telegraph. The Danish film 'Pusher' ended up having two sequels and is normally referred to as the 'Pusher Trilogy', however if the sequel to this new Pusher is made, it will have no relation to it's Danish equivalent.

This isn't Deyn's first acting job, she also played Aprhodite in Clash of the Titans in 2010, and has since acted in the West End in 'The Leisure Society', achieving great critical acclaim. Her next big project is in a starring role in an adaptation of the classic Scottish novel 'Sunset Song'.
