under the silver lake release date

A24 is trying to turn silver into box office gold with yet another release date delay for David Robert Mitchell‘s divisive neo-noir, Under the Silver Lake. The beloved indie studio is pushing back the release date to April 2019, making this the second delay for the darkly comic noir starring Andrew Garfield.

Lynne Ramsay was never really trying to break the mold. The director of this year’s critical darling You Were Never Really Here chooses her movies with discretion, with a six-year gap between the Joaquin Phoenix-starring noir thriller and her last film, the haunting psychological drama We Need to Talk About Kevin. Only four feature films total populate Ramsay’s entire catalogue, each of them critically beloved, each of them inflicting a different kind of violence upon the audience. “We’ve seen a lot of violence in film that it’s become almost banal,” Ramsay told /Film in an interview ahead of You Were Never Really Here‘s digital release on the Amazon Prime streaming platform. “It’s actually more scary not to show it.”

That’s the genius of You Were Never Really Here, a taut and moody thriller centering around Phoenix’s PTSD-suffering hit man who rescues trafficked girls. In other hands, the film would paint Phoenix as a glamorous lone wolf, an anti-hero who beats down societal corruption with his bare fists. But in Ramsay’s hands and in Phoenix’s gaunt, weary performance, You Were Never Really Here shows us a different kind of anti-hero.

Here is what Ramsay had to say about defying the “knight in shining armor” clichés, Phoenix’s role in shaping the character of Joe, and what Ramsay thinks about Phoenix’s current role as the Joker.

terminal trailer

Margot Robbie will kill you. And you will probably thank her for it.

The Oscar nominee stars in Terminal, a bonkers neo-noir that is brimming to the edge with style. Directed by Vaughn Stein, the thriller follows two assassins on a mysterious mission in sinister city, where they run into all sorts of kooky characters, including Robbie’s beguiling waitress who may or may not be a serial killer.

After his breakout success with It Follows, it would not have been a surprise if director David Robert Mitchell rode the wave of critical acclaim with another high-concept horror film. Instead, Mitchell has delivered a wacky, surreal neo-noir.

The first Under the Silver Lake trailer is a kooky ride, featuring Andrew Garfield playing against type as an awkward deadbeat who bumbles across Los Angeles looking for his beguiling next-door neighbor (Riley Keough), who has mysteriously vanished.

Twin Peaks MoMA Screening

Guillermo del Toro nightmare alley

Guillermo del Toro may have recently made a film about a god of the seas, but the Mexican-American director is the king of unfinished projects.

The Shape of Water director has announced that he will be helming a new project, a remake of the 1947 noir Nightmare Alley. But to add more to his ever-growing slate, del Toro is also attached to produce Antlers, a supernatural horror film for Fox Searchlight. They both sound like exciting projects for the acclaimed director, who is truly one of the most visionary and creative filmmakers working today. So why am I not over the moon about the news of a new del Toro film? Because del Toro has an unfortunate history of not following through.
