THE ROVER Review

by     Posted 43 days ago

the-rover-review

“Life isn’t fair” is a well-known and rarely disputed maxim.  As our awareness of the world grows, we learn this lesson.  David Michôd’s The Rover hits this point with the power of a gunshot.  His post-apocalyptic wasteland has the same brutality we’ve come to expect from the genre, but with an unnerving quiet and weary disconnect that gives power to the unrelenting nihilism.  Stars Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson ground the picture with their unsettling performances, and while the movie’s tone may be draining, it’s never tedious.

A new clip and poster for The Rover has gone online.  The film stars Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson and takes place 10 years after the collapse of society, revolving around a man who sets out to reclaim his last possession from a gang.  In this clip, Eric (Pearce) explains to Rey (Pattinson) that he’s been abandoned by not only his brother, but also by God.  It seems like this will be an uplifting little picture.

Ahead of its Cannes Film Festival premiere, three new Maps to the Stars clips have gone online.  David Cronenberg‘s latest film follows an archetypical Hollywood dynasty including a writer of self-help manuals, his wife who manages the career of their 13-year-old son, and their daughter, who was recently released from a sanatorium where she was treated for criminal pyromania.  The plot also includes Havana, an actress who wants to remake a movie that starred her now-deceased mother.  These new clips feature most of the main characters, and they provide a sense of unease as well as Hollywood satire.  I don’t know if that will be the overall tone of the movie, but there’s definitely something quietly unnerving about these clips.

Hit the jump to check out the clips [they're slightly NSFW because of language].  The film stars John Cusack, Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, Robert Pattinson, Olivia Williams, and Sarah GadonMaps to the Stars opens in France and Italy on May 21st.  A U.S. release date has yet to be announced.

With its premiere set for the Cannes Film Festival, new Maps to the Stars images have gone online.  David Cronenberg‘s latest film follows an archetypical Hollywood dynasty including a writer of self-help manuals, his wife who manages the career of their 13-year-old son, and their daughter, who was recently released from a sanatorium where she was treated for criminal pyromania.  The plot also includes Havana, an actress who wants to remake a movie that starred her now-deceased mother. The two trailers have been cryptic, and we’ll probably get a better sense of the movie after it plays at the festival.

A new Maps to the Stars trailer has gone online, and this one is a French, NSFW version (it’s NSFW because of language and nudity, not because it’s French).  The film follows an archetypical Hollywood dynasty including a writer of self-help manuals, his wife who manages the career of their 13-year-old son, and their daughter, who was recently released from a sanatorium where she was treated for criminal pyromania.  The plot also includes Havana, an actress who wants to remake a movie that starred her now-deceased mother.  Like yesterday’s trailer, I’m still not quite sure what to make of the movie.  There are clearly some darkly comic elements, but there’s also some serious intensity, and it’s sometimes difficult to tell where one ends and the other begins.  I can’t wait to see this flick.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  The film stars John Cusack, Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, Robert Pattinson, Olivia Williams, and Sarah GadonMaps to the Stars opens in France and Italy on May 21st, and will probably make its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival.  A U.S. release date has yet to be announced.

The first Maps to the Stars trailer has been released.  The film follows an archetypical Hollywood dynasty including a writer of self-help manuals, his wife who manages the career of their 13-year-old son, and their daughter, who was recently released from a sanatorium where she was treated for criminal pyromania.  The plot also includes Havana, an actress who wants to remake a movie that starred her now-deceased mother.  I’m not quite sure what to make of the footage in this promo trailer, and that’s part of what makes me so excited for this movie.  The other part is that this is a new David Cronenberg movie, and I’m eager to see anything he does.

The first image from director Anton Corbijn’s (The American) upcoming drama Life has landed online.  The film chronicles the friendship between Magnum photographer Dennis Stock and actor James Dean as the two took a journey across the U.S. for a 1955 Life Magazine assignment.  Dane DeHaan leads the film as Dean, while Robert Pattison takes on the role of Stock.  It’s tough to judge how much DeHaan embodies the role of Dean based on this one slightly obstructed image, but the pieces are all in place for a fascinating drama that provides an interesting point of view on Dean’s life.

Hit the jump to take a look at the image and to read what Corbijn had to say about the casting.  The film also stars Ben Kingsley.  Life is currently in the midst of production in Canada but a release date has yet to be set.

The first trailer for writer/director David Michôd’s upcoming thriller The Rover has been released online.  The film stars Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson and takes place 10 years after the collapse of society, revolving around a man who sets out to reclaim his last possession from a gang.  The pic is based on an original idea by Michôd and Joel Edgerton and marks Michôd’s long-awaited follow-up to his well-received 2010 feature debut Animal Kingdom.  This teaser trailer doesn’t reveal much by way of plot, but there’s certainly a thick air of intensity surrounding the proceedings and Pearce appears to be giving a strong lead performance.  Again, not particularly illuminating but this is definitely intriguing stuff.
