It's now coming on four years since Gaspar Noé's last feature effort, the trippy "Enter The Void." But he hasn't been sitting idle. The helmer directed a segment of the omnibus film "7 Days In Havana" that made festival rounds last year, and he also hung around the set of Nicolas Winding Refn's "Only God Forgives," perhaps to talk with the actor about starring in the Bret Easton Ellis-penned "The Golden Suicides," which both were linked to oh so long ago. But until his next feature is sorted out, Noé kicked off 2013 with an interesting excursion.

There have been several benefit CDs over the years to assist the wrongly accused West Memphis Three trio -- Damien Echols, Jessie Misskelley, Jr. and Jason Baldwin -- the subject of the crucial HBO documentaries "Paradise Lost 1-3" that led to their partial exoneration in 2010 (though not from a legal standpoint, they were forced to take the Alford plea, though all signs pointed to a super botched investigation and prosecution).

Director John Hillcoat’s welcome feature-length return “Lawless” will soon be making its way in front of the eyes of the world as it begins its international rollout at the end of the month. While others wait to see the film that one of our staffers enjoyed quite a bit, a few promotional tidbits are hitting the web to help satiate your thirst for the Bondurant boys and their bootlegged liquor.

It takes a fair amount of talent to appear in a film alongside practiced scene-stealers like Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska, Jason Clarke and Shia LaBeouf. But of course, as audiences have been aware of for getting on two decades, since he came to attention in "The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert," Guy Pearce is possessed of an unusual amount of talent.

Perhaps consider this a bit of a spoiler post, at least musically. So if you want to go in blind to John Hillcoat's prohibition drama "Lawless," we suggest you divert your eyes now. For the rest of you still with us, man, the soundtrack to "Lawless" is just one more reason to get excited for the film which lands on August 29th. By now you know it boasts an incredible cast including Tom Hardy, Jessica Chastain, Guy Pearce, Mia Wasikowska, Gary Oldman, Shia LaBeouf and Jason Clarke. You also know that the score was written by longtime Hillcoat collaborators Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, who wrote the haunting scores for "The Proposition," "The Road" and "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford" (the multi-hyphenate Cave, an author, also wrote the "Lawless" screenplay).

While many still know Nick Cave best for his work as a musician in groups like The Birthday Party, and especially for albums such as Let Love In and Tender Prey that he produced along with his band The Bad Seeds, Cave has become increasingly more visible in the world of cinema ever since he first started collaborating with filmmaker John Hillcoat on the helmer’s 1988 feature “Ghosts…of the Civil Undead.”

"Mexico City. 2002, 2006, 2010. A cop. A hostage. A wife. Corruption, violence, vengeance. Three destinies, during 30 days, during three Soccer World Cups. Three ways to fight in order to survive." This is the synopsis of "Days Of Grace." Starring Eva Longoria, Carlos Bardem (Javier's brother), Miguel Rodarte and Paulina Gaitan, while writer/Director Everardo Gout's first feature doesn't have a U.S. release date yet (it screened out of competition at Cannes last year), it does have a rather interesting soundtrack worth noting and maybe that'll give it extra attention.

Ray Winstone Says John Hillcoat & Nick Cave's 'The Death Of Bunny Munro' "Will Make 'Shame' Look Like Teletubbies"

It has been a long time since we heard anything about Nick Cave's "The Death Of Bunny Munro," so we'll bring you back up to speed. First conceived as a script, when Cave couldn't get it produced he turned the story into a novel that is on bookshelves now. But in a little bit of an ironic twist, in 2009 it was reported that Cave's regular collaborator John Hillcoat ("The Road," "The Proposition," "The Wettest County") was going to adapt it for British televison. Then in the summer of 2010 Cave revealed that Ray Winstone was interested in the lead role, and then...nothing since. But the hope is still alive.

Nick Cave, Warren Ellis, Atticus Ross & Shigeru Umebayashi Team For ScoreIt's pretty much impossible -- unless you are willing to completely forgo eating and sleeping -- to see everything at the Cannes Film Festival and there are always one or two films that you once you're back at home you regret having missed. And for us, that film is the Mexican thriller and midnight movie selection, "Days Of Grace." We were taken with the excellent trailer for the film and now that the soundtrack and score details have surfaced, we're kicking ourselves for not finding a way to work it into our schedule.
