Cheap Thrills Review


Excellent

Comedies don't get much more pitch-black than this fiendishly clever film, which will shift into horror for everyone in the audience, although that tipping point varies for each person. In other words, this movie will feel intensely personal for everyone who watches it. And credit must go to the cast, director and writers for making a film that, while unnerving you to the core, teaches you something about yourself in the process.

It centres on Craig (Pat Healy), who is having a seriously bad day: he's been sacked at work and evicted from his home, so before returning to his annoyed wife (Amanda Fuller) he stops for a stiff drink. At the bar he runs into his estranged friend Vince (Ethan Embry), a slacker who gets them into a conversation with Colin and Violet (David Koechner and Sara Paxton), a wealthy couple that's celebrating Violet's birthday by daring strangers to do things for money. In need of cash, both Craig and Vince volunteer, and the initially harmless tasks quickly become dangerous, sparking competition between them. And yet they play on. The question is how far they're willing to go.

Writers Trent Haaga and David Chirchirillo have conceived these challenges as a sliding scale from benign fun to nasty embarrassment to disturbing transgression and finally a full-on nightmare. Because of the way viewers react, this is definitely a film to watch in a crowded cinema, as it's clear which point on this scale is each person's limit: the laughter changes to nervous silence and ultimately gasps of horror. The fact that the movie sparks such a visceral reaction is indicative of its genius. You can't be complacent; you're right in here to the bitter end.

The Monuments Men

The main global cinematic event this week is the Berlin Film Festival, which showcases high-profile films like Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac and George Clooney's The Monuments Men. After their starry New York premiere last week, Clooney and his gang of costars - including Cate Blanchett, Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman and Jean Dujardin - have been dashing around Europe this week. Here's video footage from The Monuments Men Premiere at the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York including the arrival of Director and Star George Clooney as well as appearences from other A-List cast members like Cate Blanchett, Matt Damon and Bill Murray. Incase you missed Shia LabBeouf's Paper bag stunt take a look here.

Another Berlin premiere debuted its first trailer this week, giving us a look at the biopic Yves Saint Laurent. Pierre Niney (Romantics Anonymous) plays the eponymous designer in the film, which traces his rise to fame and romantic liaisons with both men and women in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Unsurprisingly, the film looks stylish and achingly cool. It opens next month in Britain. Watch 'Yves Saint Laurent' trailer here.

Cheap Thrills Trailer


When Craig gets fired and receives an eviction notice informing him he has 7 days to pay up or he, his wife and his new baby are out of their apartment, he is desperate for some relief from his troubles. He agrees to go out for a drink with his best friend Vince but, along the way, they meet the excessively rich Colin and his young wife Violet who take them on to a strippers bar to continue their alcohol-fuelled wild night. Colin starts to play a game with them, offering increasingly large sums of money for the first person to agree to a daring act. It stars small, with the challenges being simply downing shots or touching strippers - tasks that Vince takes up with immediacy. Craig, desperate to win some cash to take care of his family, starts to join in, getting himself beat up by a doorman and even agreeing to cut his own pinky finger off. It soon becomes clear, however, that this sick couple have no boundaries in the challenges they are willing to suggest.
