In the event that Bryan Cranston‘s character in Breaking Bad has too much of a chance to earn your sympathy and you’d rather see him play pure evil, check out this trailer for Cold Comes the Night. Cranston plays a Russian gangster looking for some money that fell into the hands of Alice Eve, and he promises (in a very entertaining Russian accent) to put a bullet in her daughter’s ear if she doesn’t comply.
Check out the trailer below.
In 2009 a good film called Children of Invention did the festival rounds. Cold Comes the Night is directed by Tze Chun, the same man who made that ’09 film. I fancy I can see a semblance of connection between the two, if only because both hinge on struggling working class families in strange, bad circumstances. Check out a review of Children of Invention here, which also comes with an interview Dave Chen conducted with the director at the Independent Film Festival Boston.
A struggling motel owner and her daughter are taken hostage by a nearly blind career criminal to be his eyes as he attempts to retrieve his cash package from a crooked cop.
