Movie News

Lars von Trier to make a horror film set in Detroit.

http://filmschoolrejects.com/news/la...rror-movie.php


Black Coal, Thin Ice

is a 2014 Chinese thriller film written and directed by Diao Yinan. The film won the Golden Bear award at the 64th Berlin International Film Festival.

An ex cop and his ex partner decide to follow up on investigation of a series of murders that ended their careers and shamed them, when identical murders begin again.


Cannes 2014 review: Leviathan - a new Russian masterpiece

Andrei Zvyagintsev's latest is a very strong contender for the Palme d'Or – a mix of Hobbes, Chekhov and the Bible, and full of extraordinary images and magnificent symmetry


Andrei Zvyagintsev's Leviathan is a sober and compelling tragic drama of corruption and intimidation in contemporary Russia, set in a desolate widescreen panorama. This is a movie which seems to be influenced by the Old Testament and Elia Kazan; it starts off looking like a reasonably scaled drama about a little guy taking on big government. Then it escalates to a new plane in which man is taking on the biggest, most cruel and implacable government of all, and the final sequence of devastation must surely be influenced by the final moments of Tarkovsky's The Sacrifice.


ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE
Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston star in this story of vampires that have been in love for centuries. Directed by Jim Jarmusch.

(I would usually ignore this one based on the plot alone, but I like all three people named).


THE GREEN INFERNO
Eli Roth directs this horror thriller about a group of NYC activists who are taken captive by the very same Amazonian tribe they were trying to save from extinction.

Re: Movie News

I have enjoyed many of Alex Garland's projects. He is drawn toward darker material. Paramount hired him to direct Jeff Vandermeer's Annihilation. I hope he becomes familiar with Ligotti's work.

Re: Movie News


Looks like they mixed several Dark Tower novels together.
TBH, I am not too surprised. Direct adaptation of the very first novel might have resulted in one enjoyably strange and dreamlike film, but probably wouldn't be a way to start another big budget movie franchise.
