Review: THE LOST CITY OF Z, A Sumptuous and Elegant Epic, Lacking in Bravado and Zeal

New York 2016 Review: James Gray's THE LOST CITY OF Z, A Well-Meaning But Lackluster Adventure Film

There is nothing particularly wrong with The Lost City of Z. I buy that one man's obsession- 'a man's reach should exceed his grasp', is worthy subject for a movie.

Interview: David Michôd Talks THE ROVER, Robert Pattinson, BREAKFAST CLUB, And More

After the kinetic, Scorcese-like Animal Kingdom, David Michôd's sophomore effort takes a very different tack. Set in a desiccated Australia, post some sort of apocalypse that seems to inevitably befall the country/continent on screen. After screening the film at...

Cannes 2014 Review: THE ROVER Drives A Steady Course

The Rover is a slow burn Western, a film with brief explosions of violence that are interspersed along a dry, dusty narrative landscape.Directed by Animal Kingdom's David Michôd, there's a cold, calculating air to the film that may put off...
