Today, we’re pleased to bring you an exclusive clip from the upcoming thriller Mojave. Written and directed by William Monahan, the Oscar-winning screenwriter behind The Departed, the film is a cat-and-mouse game between a violent artist, Thomas (Garrett Hedlund) who has an encounter in the desert with Jack (Oscar Isaac), a homicidal drifter, who holds a dark secret over Thomas’ head.
In this clip, you can see that Jack has come to call on Thomas, and I like the look of the film. It definitely seems like Monahan has captured the classical style he’s going for, and I hope it all comes together.
Check out the exclusive Mojave clip below along with images and the poster. The film is currently on DirecTV and opens in theaters this month; it co-stars Walton Goggins and Louise Bourgoin.
Here’s the official synopsis for Mojave:
In this intense classical thriller, from an original screenplay by Oscar-winning writer William Monahan (The Departed), a violent artist, Thomas, (Garrett Hedlund) has an ominous encounter in the desert with a homicidal, chameleon-like drifter, Jack, (Oscar Isaac). Jack follows Thomas back to his privileged L.A. home life, holding a dark secret over his head as he attempts to infiltrate and destroy his seemingly-perfect life. Thomas must come to terms with his own insecurities and self-doubt to protect himself and his family, and go head-to-head with his nemesis in a riveting two-man clash that plays out in exciting and unexpected ways.
