Review: Midnight Special

PLOT : A man and his young son - who possesses special powers - are on the run from those who may seek to take advantage of the boy and his gifts. REVIEW : There is a quiet intensity in the new film from writer/director Jeff Nichols. You could easily simplify it and call it a car chase film, but really, there is so much more. It is a brilliantly executed examination of a father...

Interview: Midnight Special's Michael Shannon, Kirsten Dunst & Joel Edgerton

Not unlike last week's 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE , Jeff Nichols ' MIDNIGHT SPECIAL is a sci-fi movie sure to divide many genre fans. Some will see it as lacking in big, splashy action sequences and/or scares, while others will dig its methodical pace and focus on character over spectacle. It's certainly not your typical studio fare (Warner Bros. will release on March 18th before expanding...

Review: Child of God

PLOT: After losing his land to the bank, already-unhinged Lester Ballard retreats to the woods and hills of 1960's Tennessee where he proceeds to shed his last vestiges of civilized behavior and sanity. REVIEW: I'll give a measure of credit to James Franco : he's not afraid to tackle the impossible. Last year he attempted to bring William Faulkner's internal novel AS I LAY DYING to...

I am very interested in checking out James Franco 's CHILD OF GOD. The teaser gave us a glimpse at the Cormac McCarthy adaptation, and now a full trailer has been released. The way the trailer was cut makes the film seem like it's a horror movie, which isn't that big of stretch considering the gruesome and twisted actions committed by Scott Haze 's Lester Ballard...
