The world is crazy, and it can make you feel weak, but Charles de Lauzirika‘s Crave takes fear and frustration and turns it into a meandering bore. De Lauzirika is very aware of his film’s influences, and there’s no pretention about carving out new territory, but he doesn’t show us anything we haven’t really seen before. Just as his protagonist looks to find love and strength, Crave stumbles around trying to find a novel idea worth exploring. Further burdened by miscasting and an ill-fitting visual style, the film slogs around, occasionally bumping into a worthwhile performance or relationship, but is ultimately sucked into a void where the harder it tries to find meaning, the less it means anything.
Today, we’re happy to bring you an exclusive clip from co-writer and director Charles de Lauzirika’s debut feature, Crave, starring Josh Lawson (House of Lies) and Edward Furlong (Terminator 2: Judgment Day). The story centers on Aiden (Lawson), a crime scene photographer who turns to his active imagination in order to escape the horrors of his environment. The clip features Aiden tracking down Ravi (Furlong) to put some fear into him, and things turn really creepy really fast.
Also starring Ron Perlman (Hellboy) and Emma Lung (Triangle), Crave will be available on VOD and in theaters December 6th. Hit the jump to watch our exclusive clip.
One of the most frustrating things about Prometheus is its potential. There are simply too many plot holes (which, admittedly, I didn’t notice when I saw the film; I was wrapped up in the visuals, performance, and strength of Ridley Scott‘s direction). The fact that the marketing for the Blu-ray has had to be “Questions Will Be Answered” is preposterous. This isn’t Lost. This is a movie, and either the questions should have been answered or they should purposely be left ambiguous. Looking back on Prometheus, I’ve wondered if the more fulfilling picture is out there either in a director’s cut or in screenwriter Jon Spaihts‘ original script.
Hit the jump for why we won’t be seeing the director’s cut, but we can learn a bit more about what Spaihts intended before screenwriter Damon Lindelof came on board. Prometheus hits DVD, Blu-ray, and 3D Blu-ray tomorrow.
