TRANSSIBERIAN - 6 Movie Clips
Posted by Frosty
“Transsiberian” was another in the long list of movies that I wanted to see while I was at this year’s Sundance film festival. Not only is it the new movie from Brad Anderson (who made “The Machinist”), but it’s about a long train journey…something that I’m fascinated with. Also, besides having an interesting story and setting, it’s got a great cast with Woody Harrelson, Emily Mortimer, Kate Mara, Eduardo Noriega and Ben Kingsley playing the main characters.
Since I didn't see it, here’s the synopsis from the Sundance Press guide:
Brad Anderson is a quintessentially independent film director known for his attention to character psychology and the details and nuance of place, traits that make the superbly crafted thriller Transsiberian an uncommonly absorbing experience. One of those legendary train trips that people used to dream about taking, the Transsiberian Express has probably seen better days. An American couple, Roy (Woody Harrelson) and Jessie (Emily Mortimer), decide to return home the long way from their recent sojourn in Peking and meet another couple from the West, Carlos (Eduardo Noriega) and Abby (Kate Mara), with whom they quickly form that tenuous bond that often unites fellow travelers away from home. When Roy gets separated from the train at a stopover, Jessie begins to realize that their compatriots aren’t exactly who or what they seem to be. But the real dangers of their unforgettable trip have only begun to surface; Russian cops (Ben Kingsley plays one), mobsters, and locals are still to come.
Later tonight I hope to have my video interviews up with Brad and Eduardo Noriega, but until then…enjoy the 6 clips that we were provided. The movie looks quite cool, like an old Hitchcock film.
Next stop, Irkutsk
