Wormwood Review

With Wormwood, documentary filmmaker Errol Morris creates his boldest, most thought provoking film yet. A delirious, haunting blend of talking-head documentary and narrative reenactment; a true crime saga that doubles as a government conspiracy polemic. A saga wrought with mystery, grief, scandal, and puzzlement. There’s never really been anything quite like this.

Deidra & Laney Rob a Train trailer

Sundance is now in full swing, which means those of you at home might be feeling festival envy right about now. But the good news is that we won’t have long to wait until some of this year’s promising features get released. As a matter of fact, we’re less than two months away from seeing Deidra & Laney Rob a Train, which was first announced by Netflix last year.

The film, directed by Sydney Freeland, is exactly what it says on the package: it’s about two girls named Deidra (Ashleigh Murray) and Laney (Rachel Crow) who decide to start robbing trains. They hatch the plan in order to make ends meet after their mother is thrown in jail, and it looks like they turn out to be actually pretty good at it. Unfortunately, their heists are so successful that they catch the attention of a detective (Tim Blake Nelson), who sets out to find these mystery bandits. Watch the Deidra & Laney Rob a Train trailer below.  Read More »

Anne Hathaway in Colossal teaser

Even if you’re a monster movie aficionado, it’s likely you’ve never seen one quite like Nacho Vigalondo‘s ColossalAnne Hathaway stars as Gloria, whose charm helps paper over the fact that she’s a total mess. Unemployed and freshly single, she moves back to her hometown and reconnects with an old friend (Jason Sudeikis) who becomes her new drinking buddy.

So far, it sounds like just another quarter-life crisis indie dramedy, right? But Gloria, it turns out, shares a mysterious connection to a giant monster that’s been rampaging through Seoul. As the truth of the situation dawns on her, Gloria must figure out how to stop it from spiraling completely out of control. Watch the Colossal teaser below. Read More »

the confirmation trailer

For those of us that remember the days when Clive Owen was on the cusp of serious action hero stardom (remember when he was supposed to be the next James Bond?), seeing the gruff actor in a seemingly warmhearted movie like The Confirmation is a little peculiar. Then again, the past few years have seen Owen going out of his way to showcase various unseen facets of his acting range. I’m glad he never took off as a major movie star because we may not have gotten his fascinating and unsettling Dr. John Thackery, as seen on The Knick. Now, he’s trying out the role of the lovable deadbeat dad who tends to pop up in indie comedies so they can teach young boys valuable life lessons.

There aren’t too many surprises to be found in the new The Confirmation trailer, but the directorial debut of Bob Nelson looks sweet and nice and stacked with actors we do not mind watching in the slightest.

Anesthesia trailer

Kristen Stewart may have become a household name on the strength of one of the biggest studio franchises in recent memory, but since Twilight wrapped up in 2012 she’s established herself as an indie darling. Earlier this year she garnered tons of buzz for her turns in Still Alice and Clouds of Sils Maria, and next year she’ll be back with four or five more titles including Tim Blake Nelson‘s Anesthesia.

The ensemble drama, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year, hinges on a violent attack against a well liked professor (played by Sam Waterston). The film jumps back a week to explain how the incident came to back, focusing on a seemingly disparate cast of characters played by Nelson, Stewart, Glenn CloseCorey StollGretchen MolMichael K. Williams, and more. Watch the Anesthesia trailer after the jump. Read More »
