far from men trailer

Viggo Mortensen has had a busy couple years, though he hasn’t been doing Hollywood films. The Two Faces of January (trailer) and Jauja (trailer) have premiered recently in Berlin and Cannes, respectively. Now he’s got a third film hitting a major fest this year. In Far From Men, French writer-director David Oelhoffen started with the Albert Camus short story The Guest to create what is, in many respects, a western — just one set in Algeria during the revolution of the mid/late 1950s. Check out the Far From Men trailer below. Read More »

Fisher King commentary

Tragic as the reason was, there’s been a muted pleasure in seeing people go back to The Fisher King in the wake of Robin Williams‘ death. The 1991 movie is among the least flashy of Terry Gilliam‘s films, and one that in the past decade or so seems to have taken a back seat to consideration of higher-profile films like Brazil and Twelve Monkeys.

The Fisher King is a great movie, and a strange one. But it grounds Gilliam’s quirky and excessive tendencies in a handful of really wonderful characters who are brought to life by great performances. Robin Williams, in particular, is at the top of his game as a man whose life has turned completely upside-down in the wake of his wife’s death. The film can be relentlessly brutal, but it is also beautifully funny, and full of life. At it’s heart, this is a musical, and it’s a pleasure to see Gilliam and the cast play.

There are a lot of treasures hidden on now out of print Criterion laserdiscs, and here’s one of them. This feature commentary from Terry Gilliam isn’t in print any longer, as it only appeared on the laserdisc release of the movie. But you can listen to the Fisher King commentary below. Read More »

‘Halt and Catch Fire’ Renewed For Season 2

Halt and Catch Fire teaser

In a somewhat surprising move, AMC just renewed the show Halt and Catch Fire. The first season averaged 1.3 million viewers over its first 10 episodes, which isn’t great, but it hit a specific adult demographic that the channel liked. And I’m sure the fact its male stars Lee Pace and Scoot McNairy are both becoming major stars on the big screen (Guardians of the Galaxy for Pace, Batman v Superman for McNairy) doesn’t hurt. The new episodes will air next summer. Read more about Halt and Catch Fire season 2 below. Read More »
