You get the sense both actor Tim Roth and his character in The Hateful Eight, Oswaldo Mobray, are enjoying themselves immensely all throughout Quentin Tarantino‘s latest western. Roth plays a very posh and exuberant Englishman, who’s also a surprisingly thoughtful hangman.
The Hateful Eight is as much a mystery as it is a western, and how the story plays out, I imagine, will be even more satisfying on repeat viewings. The smallest of gestures, conversations, and even the blocking says so much about where these characters stand. It’s an intricately crafted film, and Roth, quite clearly, had a ball making it.
I spoke to a few actors at The Hateful Eight press day, and rarely are they so happy to be promoting a movie. This is Roth’s fourth collaboration with Tarantino, and he was kind enough to discuss the film, Oswaldo Mobray, and more with us.

But if you’re a little impatient, you can watch eight minutes of The Hateful Eight clips right now to hold you over until Chtistmas gets here. It certainly won’t look as good as it will on a 70mm projection, but it’s the best we can do. Read More »

Oliver Hirschbiegel’s Diana has already been thoroughly panned by critics across the pond, but maybe the second of this fall’s two princess biopics will meet a better fate.

It’s easy to be pessimistic about the state of David Lynch‘s film career at this point. Outside the occasional fashion ad, music video or (admittedly pretty awesome) short film, the guy doesn’t now fall back to the movie camera as his primary creative device.
But there are signs that he’s not done with film yet. One is the revelation that he’s working on a new feature script. And the other is that his occasional acting resume will be bolstered with an appearance in the new film from his daughter, Jennifer Lynch. Read More »
The subtitles here are in French, so this trailer won’t give you many of the core plot details of the French thriller Mobius, but you’ll definitely be able to latch on to the film’s tone and catch a glimpse of the cast at work. The big draw here for some will be Jean Dujardin, last seen in his Oscar-winning turn in The Artist. But for me, it’s Cécile de France, who has been brutal in Haute Tension and simultaneously tough and tender in The Kid With a Bike.
Mobius was both written and directed by French filmmaker Eric Rochant (Love Without Pity, Long Live the Republic) and looks like a straight-up thriller with a potentially good mix of modern look and classic tone. Read More »

Add to that list Nicholas Jarecki‘s white-collar thriller Arbitrage, which is now getting the word out for its September release.
