    Review: Cop Thriller 'Blood' Starring Paul Bettany, Stephen Graham, Brian Cox & Mark Strong | The Playlist

    And ultimately, it can't help feeling like an above-average TV drama, rather than the Lumet-ish big-screen drama we had our fingers crossed for. But there's also an unusual weight and depth of feeling to the film that makes it linger longer than most films of its kind—not least in the central performances. Not an unreserved success, then, but a smart, well-acted and well-directed picture that adds up to a little more than the sum of its parts. [B-]

    WWE Studios, Anchor Bay Team For Jason Momoa's Directing Debut 'Road To Paloma' - Deadline.com

    EXCLUSIVE: WWE Studios and Anchor Bay Films has acquired distribution rights in North America, the United Kingdom and Australia/New Zealand to Road To Paloma, the directorial debut of Jason Momoa. Momoa played the title role in Conan The Barbarian, and was last seen playing Khal Drogo in HBO’s Game Of Thrones. Road To Paloma will be released in the U.S. later this year, and is produced by Momoa and Brian Andrew Mendoza’s Pride of Gypsies with Jamey Pryde serving as executive producer. Robert Homer Mollohan co-wrote the film with Jonathan Hirschbein and Momoa.

    In Road To Paloma, Momoa stars as Robert Wolf, a Native American, who is being hotly pursued by the FBI for taking the law into his own hands after thugs rape and kill his mother on their reservation. Wolf crosses paths with Cash (Mollohan), a down and out musician, and an unlikely bond is formed as they motorcycle across the vast highways of the American West in search of redemption.

    Momoa is currently starring in The Red Road, a scripted series for The Sundance Channel. He seems like a pretty decent guy; when I interviewed Game Of Thrones exec producers D.B. Weiss and David Benioff, they said that while they have become accustomed to routinely killing their cast, the guy that was hardest was Drogo, because they so loved hanging out with Momoa.

    “Jason is a genuine triple threat with his writing, directing and, of course, acting talent. He has delivered a gritty, provocative and powerful film. We couldn’t be more excited to introduce it to audiences through our continued collaboration with our partners at Anchor Bay,” said WWE Studios President Michael Luisi, who made the deal with Anchor Bay’s Kevin Kasha.

    The film also stars Lisa Bonet, Sarah Shahi, Michael Raymond-James, Wes Studi, Timothy V. Murphy, and Chris Browning.
    Kingsqueen shall be pleased.

    love Sam Rockwell...can I see this already?
    Apparently, I can...saw adverts for this OnDemand this weekend. Disappointing, expected a minor release at the very least.

    Telluride Review: 'Prisoners' Starring Hugh Jackman & Jake Gyllenhaal | The Playlist

    Featuring a terrific supporting cast, everyone brings their A-Game, but Bello as the destroyed mother and Davis as the matriarch who puts her faith in Dover, are especially strong. “Prisoners” is difficult, wrenching subject matter, and it will be interesting to see how audiences (and Oscar voters for that matter) respond. The picture is often graphic and pulls no punches in its disturbing violence, but its unflinching nature gives it a memorable sear that won't soon be forgotten. A first-rate thriller with a blackened bite, “Prisoners” may not be the easiest or most escapist sit for the casual moviegoer, but it’s this kind of filmmaking and storytelling that brings folks like us flocking to the theaters year after year. [B+/A-]
    Saw the trailer for the first time this weekend. Looks pretty good.

    Venice Review: James Franco's Cormac McCarthy Adaptation 'Child Of God' | The Playlist

    The whole thing feels sort of tossed off, like it was made by film students over a couple of weekends. And that's the root of our problem with Franco's directorial work. His restless and experimental nature is to be lauded to a degree, and you feel that if he were to focus his considerable energies on a single project, then he might be able to come up with something special. Because otherwise, if he can't make a piece of material like "Child Of God" into something worth watching, we'd probably rather see him spend his time in other people's movies. [D]
    Disappointing. I love that book.

    Telluride: World's First Screening of 'Prisoners' Leaves Audience Stunned - The Hollywood Reporter

    The thriller, which breaks the rules of genre by focusing on character and the degrading effects of violence on people's souls, played well. Even viewers who could not stand its violence agreed afterwards that it was a stunning, overpowering film. Jackman plays a father whose daughter's kidnapping, apparently by a psycho (Paul Dano), turns him into a vigilante, while cop Gyllenhaal races to find the killer and keep Jackman's character from stepping over the line of criminality. The audience was clearly deeply affected by their intense performances in the unconventional, mazelike intellectual whodunnit, and also by the topflight cast: Maria Bello as Jackman's traumatized wife, Terrence Howard and Viola Davis as their friends whose daughter was also abducted, and Melissa Leo as Dano's mother.

    The Hobbits Ian McKellen to play a retired Sherlock Holmes

    In case you haven't had enough Sherlock Holmes over the last few years, Sir Ian McKellen has signed on to play a new take on the venerable literary detective.

    The Oscar nominee will play Holmes in his retirement years in the upcoming film "A Slight Trick of the Mind," from director Bill Condon ("Dreamgirls," "The Fifth Estate").

    "Mind" will find Holmes and his son living the quiet life in 1947 Sussex after his faithful partner Watson has passed on. Soon, Holmes is roused by a cold case from his early days that he finally feels can be solved.

    The film will be written by Jeffrey Hatcher ("The Duchess") from the novel of the same name by Mitch Cullin. Production is set to start in April in the U.K.

    Condon previously directed McKellen in 1998's "Ghosts and Monsters," in which the actor played "Frankenstein" director James Whale and was nominated for an Oscar.
