Wow. Fifteen years after Paul Thomas Anderson‘s valley opus Magnolia, we get the Millenium Entertainment take on Altman-esque sprawl with Reach Me. This film looks a bit out of its mind, but maybe it’s in the service of some kind of mad genius. All I know is it doesn’t look boring, even though it seems to be in search of a consistent tone (it oscillates wildly between serious pathos and comic relief). I will indeed be seeing it.
Hit the jump for the Reach Me trailer and poster. The film was directed by John Herzfeld and stars Sylvester Stallone, Tom Berenger, Kevin Connolly, Danny Trejo, Kyra Sedgwick, Nelly, Cary Elwes, Thomas Jane, Terry Crews, Danny Aiello, Kelsey Grammer, Lauren Cohan, Ryan Kwanten, as well as Tom Sizemore.
