GOOD KILL: Bruce Greenwood goes to drone warfare – Exclusive Interview

GOOD KILL | ©2015 IFC Films

He’s been JFK facing off against Russia, played a President holding onto a Book of Secrets, embodied the best of The Federation as Commander Christopher Pike and even voiced Batman. Because when it comes to embodying brave politicians and sternly noble authority figures, few actors carry the intelligent, often patriotic gravitas of the Canadian-born Bruce Greenwood. Possessed of a sonorous voice and chiseled looks, Greenwood has certainly played a myriad of roles in a nearly four-decade career that’s ranged from ST. ELSEWHERE’s Dr. Seth Griffin to TV’s identity-erased NOWHERE MAN as well as an inner-earth astronaut exploring “The Core” and …Read On »

Griffin, Raeden Greer, Bryce Romero Writer: John Scott 3 Director: Henry Hobson Distributor: Lionsgate/Roadside Attractions Release Date: May 8, 2015 MAGGIE gives us a whole lot of things we don’t expect and perhaps didn’t know we wanted, but come to appreciate soon and thoroughly. John Scott 3 has crafted a screenplay that thinks through the zombie apocalypse more thoroughly than most in the genre. More, this is not a movie about a group of survivors, or even a lone survivor, facing down a horde. It’s a sober family drama …Read On »

Movie Review: PRIVATE NUMBER

PRIVATE NUMBER | © 2015 ARC Entertainment

Rating: R Stars: Hal Ozsan, Nicholle Tom, Judd Nelson, Tom Sizemore, Gary McDonald Writer: LazRael Lison Director: LazRael Lison Distributor: ARC Entertainment/Summer House Pictures Release Date: Theatrical & VOD, May 1, 2015 PRIVATE NUMBER is one of those what’s-going-on-here thrillers that works as well as it does partly because writer/director LazRael Lison keeps us guessing most of the way through whether what’s happening is hallucinatory, supernatural, or some combination of the two. It also helps that the film has a sturdy leading man in Hal Ozsan, who is capable of the personality swings that the script demands. A prologue sequence …Read On »
