Kiefer Sutherland Mary Lynn Rajskub

US drama 24 has decamped to London where Kiefer Sutherland, Mary Lynn Rajskub and co. are filming the show's newest season. Judging by the early photos taken on set, the new season looks to be as tense and action-packed as ever. Kiefer Sutherland's former counter terrorist unit agent turned fugitive seemed to be sporting a nasty-looking head wound, with some pretty realistic blood and bruising, alongside his usual leather jacket.

Ouch! Kiefer Seems To Have Had A Bit Of An Accident.

However, it was Mary Lynn Rajskub's dramatic transformation into a very 'girl with the dragon tattoo'-esque new version of her character, Chloe O'Brian. The actress was snapped with a spiky new haircut, heavy black make-up, silver jewellery, biker clothing and a host of new piercings - a far cry from her usually plainly-dressed look.

The Kings Of Summer Review


Excellent

This is the kind of American independent comedy-drama that restores our faith in the cinema, combining a talented cast, witty direction and a razor-sharp script to reboot the coming-of-age genre. It's an original approach that completely wins us over; even the film's slightly too-wacky touches are genuinely hilarious. And it's all grounded in realistic characters we can identify with, especially when they're in amusingly awkward situations.

The story centres on Joe (Robinson), a teen who is fed up with the way his widowed father Frank (Offerman) takes out his grief on anyone at hand. Joe's sister (Brie) has already escaped, moving in with her goofy boyfriend (Cordero), and now that school has let out for the summer, Joe decides to build a bolt-hole in the woods. He finds a collaborator in his best pal Patrick (Basso), whose inane parents (Mullally and Jackson) are so annoying that he has broken out in hives. Then Biaggio (Arias), a strange kid no one really knows, joins them to build a secret cabin where no one can find them. And they love this independent lifestyle so much that they never want summer to end.

Along the way, the film takes a wonderfully honest look at the horrors of adolescence. Joe's and Patrick's parents always say the most embarrassing things imaginable, so getting away from them is like a blast of freedom. And there's a very strong female lead in Kelly (Moriarty), the girl Joe fantasises about even though she has eyes for other boys. Robinson and Basso are excellent in the lead roles, playing characters we can easily identify with and root for. Arias is hilarious as the rather ridiculous Biaggio, making the most of a role that's perhaps the film's only false note: he's just too nutty to be believable.

The Kings Of Summer Trailer


Joe Toy is struggling under the weight of his over-bearing single father Frank; his rules, curfews and sanctions are suffocating him as his independence is slowly quashed day by day during his summer vacation. In a bid for the first taste of freedom in his life, he grabs his best friend Patrick Keenan, an equally suppressed teenage boy, and takes him on a trip to the woods where he shows him where they will build their own house free from any kind of parental strain. Tagging along is a weird and unpredictable kid named Biaggio who they're too afraid to reject, and who thinks up an idea of a kidnapping to explain their dramatic runaway to their worried parents. While they struggle to live off the land and take care of themselves, their friendships are tested as they discover just how difficult it is to be independent, parents or no parents.

The Kings Of Summer Trailer


Joe Toy is not so different from your average hormone-ravaged adolescent boy; he, like many teenagers, struggles with his limits of independence as his father Frank, who brings Joe up alone, insists on keeping control over Joe's life as he tries in vain to gain a little freedom. In a bid for autonomy and liberation, he enlists the help of his best friend Patrick Keenan and their peculiar acquaintance Biaggio to help him build a home in the woods during their summer vacation and thus become entirely self-sufficient, living off the land. However, tempers rise and friendships are put to the test as they discover that true independence is almost impossible as even the kind of family you choose becomes just as restricting as the one you were born with.

Safety Not Guaranteed Review


Essential

With a low budget but a lot of imagination and talent, director Trevorrow and writer Connolly create a deceptively simple comedy that's one of the most entertaining films of the year. It's so cleverly written that every moment of the film is hugely engaging, and it's so perfectly played by its cast that we can't help but fall for the likeable, flawed characters.

Set in Washington state, the story centres on Darius (Plaza), a sardonic Seattle magazine intern whose life derailed when she was 14, after her mother's death. So her interest is piqued when she hears about a classified ad asking for an assistant on a time travel mission ("Bring your own weapons. Safety not guaranteed"). She accompanies arrogant journalist Jeff (Johnson) and fellow intern Arnau (Soni) to a seaside town to write up the story for the magazine, but once they track down the ad's author Kenneth (Duplass), nothing goes as expected.

Each of these three magazine reporters has a full-bodied story, expertly set within the larger investigation of whether Kenneth is nuts or not. All of these characters are caught between their past and the present, exploring who they once were, who they are and who they want to be, which makes them easy to identify with even as they do some amusingly silly things. And the filmmakers cleverly refuse to play into our expectations, keeping us guessing about where the movie is heading. So each scene bristles with possibility, and each twist and turn of the plot and side-plots is both thrilling and hilarious.

Firewall Review


Weak
There is now practically a subgenre of films in which the protagonist's family is kidnapped and the bad guys use that leverage to get him or her to perform some misdeed. Nick of Time, Hostage, and Red Eye all fit the bill. Firewall borrows not so much from these as it does from a television version of this scenario: The first season of 24. In addition to the premise, it borrows the technology (video and audio surveillance of our hero), a current cast member as the lead's assistant (Mary Lynn Rajskub), and even the main character's first name. Sadly, in gathering all these elements, Firewall fails to learn any of the lessons of the show it pilfers from.

Jack Stanfield (Harrison Ford) is the prosperous head of security at a Seattle bank. His wife, Beth, (an utterly wasted Virginia Madsen) is a successful architect who designed their gorgeous home. They have two lovely stereotypical kids and a dog, and in our first five minutes with them just about every major plot point of the film is telegraphed in 28-point blinking bold script.
