Monday night was the world premiere of Tony Kaye’s “Detachment” at the Tribeca Film Festival. Our heads are still buzzing from the strange and experimental film -- you can check out our review here (but this writer strong disagrees with the take). But, lost in the shuffle of “Detachment” finally reaching audiences is the fact that Kaye has another completed film on the shelf, the 2008-shot thriller, “Black Water Transit” starring Karl Urban, Laurence Fishburne, Brittany Snow, Stephen Dorff and more. The crime drama follows the divergent agendas of criminals, cops and lawyers as they collide over a shipment of illegal firearms and a double homicide. Earl Pike (Urban), a criminal, tries to get his family's illegal gun collection to a safe haven, while attempting to get his junkie son freed from prison. While 'Transit' is involved in a similar situation as David O. Russell’s “Nailed,” being from the same financiers, Kaye seems optimistic about the film seeing a release soon.

Tribeca Review: Tony Kaye's 'Detachment' Is A Fascinating Mess You Can't Look Away From

Though it had flown mostly under the radar, cinephiles were pretty thrilled a few weeks ago when the Tribeca Film Festival announced the addition of “Detachment” to its lineup. Not only was the cast top notch but behind the director's chair was British provocateur Tony Kaye, the filmmaker behind the controversial “American History X,” a picture made over 12 years ago. In the interim, things have been tough for the notoriously difficult director and "Detachment" is only his third feature and first narrative film since 1998. "American History X" had its own infamously troubled history when star Edward Norton essentially took over the film, edited it on his own without the director, and Kaye subsequently made a gigantic stink in Hollywood, putting ridiculous ads in Variety and eventually tried to take his name off the film and replace it with the pseudonym Humpty Dumpty. Norton would go on to receive an Oscar nomination for his performance but Kaye (following an unsuccessful attempt to sue New Line Cinema) ended up in director jail for nearly a decade.

Believe us, we're rooting for director Tony Kaye if only because he's had an uphill battle in Hollywood ever since "American History X." With his last two efforts being either ignored (the powerful abortion documentary "Lake Of Fire") or mired in film studio bankruptcy woes (the New Orleans thriller “Black Water Transit” starring Laurence Fishburne, Karl Urban and Brittany Snow) the guy could use a break. It's just too bad that his latest, the star-studded "Detachment" doesn't look like it will fit the bill.

Kings Of Leon Documentary Also AddedOver a decade into his career, Tony Kaye is likely still wondering what it feels like to shoot a movie, edit it and then release it easily into theaters, no fuss no muss. "American History X" found him battling with Edward Norton over the cut of the film. He would return eight years later with "Lake Of Fire," a documentary about abortion that no one saw. Then there's the New Orleans thriller "Black Water Transit" starring Laurence Fishburne, Karl Urban and Brittany Snow that is still presumably being haggled over in the mess that David Bergstein created with Capitol Films. But last year, Kaye shot "Detachment," a drama set within the education system and lo and behold it's ready to make a premiere without any fights with his lead actor or the financiers going under leaving the film in limbo.
