A mother in search of her kidnapped son can be formidable. A mother in that situation, who also used to be a CIA field agent, can be the proverbial unstoppable force. Certainly, that’s the case with Ashley Judd’s MISSING character Rebecca Winstone, who has raised her son Michael (Nick Eversman) alone ever since the death of Nick’s father, Rebecca’s husband and fellow CIA agent Paul Winstone (Sean Bean, see in flashbacks throughout the series). Naturally, the CIA isn’t too thrilled with the idea of one of their own, albeit retired, deploying her Agency skills around the globe. European station chief […]Read On »

CD Review: 127 HOURS Original Soundtrack

© 2010 Interscope Records | 127 Hours Soundtrack

When it comes to grooving filmmakers, Danny Boyle just might be the most creative D.J.-cum-director of them all. Cutting his movies to the fierce energy, and hallucinatory rhythms of a rave with particularly good drugs, Boyle’s best, confrontational imagery has pulsated with often-improbable mix tapes of score and songs, creating any number of memorably crazy scenes. Scottish addicts did screwball crimes to Iggy Pop’s “Lust for Life” in TRAINSPOTTING, the religious strains of “Ave Maria” gave way to the rabid zombie guitar run of John Murphy’s score to 28 WEEKS LATER before that composer teamed with the electro group Orbital […]Read On »

Chances are, you’ve heard of Aron Ralston. He’s the outdoor enthusiast who got pinned by a boulder in a freak accident and, after five days, had to cut off his own arm to escape. For those who can cope with a depiction of Ralston’s ordeal, 127 HOURS is a consistently gripping drama that puts us face to face with the question of what we would or even could do to save ourselves in a similar situation.
