Nick Cave Doc '20000 Days on Earth'
“Nick would have never gone for a straightforward rock-doc,” co-director Iain Forsyth told The New York Times about the docudrama "20,000 Days On Earth." “We decided to go in a direction that combined reality with fantasy as seamlessly as possible — which, if you think about it, isn’t too far from the transaction between a rock star and his fans. People want desperately to enter the world Nick creates in his songs. You can look around when the Bad Seeds are playing and see precisely which version of Nick — the junkie, the outlaw, the lover — each person in the crowd wants to be.”

Neighbors
While our review of the frat comedy “Neighbors” is quite glowing and the R-Rated laffer was a major hit this spring, not all of us agree that the comedy is all that (this writer anyhow). However, one thing that no human on the planet can argue about the movie, full stop: Rose Byrne is excellent in it, probably the best part of the movie and a total scene stealer evidently born for comedy. And sure, we’ve seen her in comedy before, most memorably in “Bridesmaids,” and “Get Him To The Greek,” but in “Neighbors” Byrne has a mix of charm and go-for-brokeness that is vastly appealing.

Patrick Wilson, Jessica Biel, Imogen Poots, Blunderer
It’s a casting-o-rama Friday. With Cannes around the corner and the entire industry getting together for their quarterly wheeling and dealing, it means a lot of pacts are being made. Perhaps the most interesting is the adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s novel ‘The Blunderer.” She is obviously the writer of the Talented Mr. Ripley series and this non-Ripley-centered psychological thriller will star Patrick Wilson, Jessica Biel, Toby Jones and Imogen Poots. Andy Goddard will direct.

Point Break Ray Winstone
"I've been lucky to work on a lot of films that I consider good scripts, me personally. I've also worked on films that I've had to do because I've had to pay the rent," Ray Winstone recently told The Belfast Telegraph. "But that's part of the game and then you work on them and try and make them better films, with help from the director and the people you're working with. But it doesn't always work out that way." So we'll see where his next gig ends up on his list: paying rent or good script.

Noah, Russell Crowe
Only a few pages long and with the barest of details, the Genesis tale of Noah’s Ark is one the original peaks of brevity. A succinct story of an apocalypse and its aftermath, one can easily see why the themes of death and rebirth attracted Darren Aronofsky to a film adaptation. But “Noah” is no mere second attempt at “The Fountain." It is instead a grounded journey outwards on ideas of regret, mercy, and revenge, and at 139 minutes the film makes every attempt, coherent or not, to thoroughly address each one.

Noah, Russell Crowe,
It might not be the size of the ark, but Darren Aronofsky's "Noah" is his biggest undertaking to date, a big-budget studio movie telling the story of the man who rode out the destruction of humanity of God's command. And that sounds like a darker way to summarize the story of Noah's ark, that's just the starting point on this take of the Bible story, which is rolling into theatres soon and already proving somewhat divisive.

As Darren Aronofsky's "Noah" prepares to ride the multiplex seas in a few short weeks, Paramount is still figuring out how to market the movie, in particular to religious groups. They want the all important Christian audiences to spend their money on the Biblical tale, but they also don't want to offend them with Aronofsky's take that doesn't stick to the scrubbed clean Sunday School version. And all of this has to led to rather curious amendment to the trailers for the the upcoming movie.

Noah, Aronofsky
When it rains, it pours, except if you're "Noah" when rain means the imminent destruction of the planet, and that your only hope for survival is an ark you built yourself and populated with a pair of every animal on Earth. Was "Noah" the first hoarding story?

Sundance Review: Nick Cave Docudrama '20,000 Days On Earth'

Though he’s never been a superstar, after four decades of making music there is no question that Nick Cave is a legend. Singer, songwriter and occasional composer, Cave has been playing in bands since he was in his teens, from his post-punk group The Birthday Party, to his back-to-basics side project Grinderman, to his solo work to his band for over 30 years, The Bad Seeds. Though his music has only ever crossed over into the mainstream a few times (the soundtrack staple “Red Right Hand” and Kylie Minogue duet “Where The Wild Roses Grow”), he has nevertheless amassed an army of dedicated fans all over the world. The new documentary “20,000 Days On Earth” is neither the career retrospective or concert film you might, but rather a snapshot of the musician, now 57, still trying to connect with his muse.
