Rating: R Stars: Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Chloe Sevigny, Tilda Swinton, Steve Buscemi, Danny Glover, Tom Waits, Caleb Landry Jones Writer: Jim Jarmusch Director: Jim Jarmusch Distributor: Focus Features Release Date: June 14, 2019 If you are familiar with the works filmmaker Jim Jarmusch, describing THE DEAD DON’T DIE as a Jim Jarmusch movie with zombies should tell you pretty much all you need to know about it. If you’re not familiar with Jarmusch’s oeuvre, perhaps the best way to attempt to convey the experience by noting this is a review, written by someone who’s aware that it’s a review, […]Read On »

Movie Review: SORRY TO BOTHER YOU

SORRY TO BOTHER YOU movie poster | ©2018 Annapurna Pictures

Rating: R Stars: Lakeith Stanfield, Tessa Thompson, Jermaine Fowler, Omari Hardwick, Terry Crews, Kate Berlant, Michael X. Sommers, Danny Glover, Steven Yeun, Armie Hammer, Forest Whitaker Writer: Boots Riley Director: Boots Riley Distributor: Annapurna Pictures Release Date: June 6, 2018 SORRY TO BOTHER YOU is agitprop comedy cinema at its most pointed. Director/writer Boots Riley has devised a wicked social satire that takes on race, economics, the corporate state and more. It’s often simultaneously funny and depressing in how close its outrageousness is to reality. Even when the third act takes a turn into sci-fi, the metaphors are grounded. Our […]Read On »

In the second part of our exclusive interview with TOUCH creator/executive producer Tim Kring, he talks about what we can expect in TOUCH Season 2 and what Season Five of HEROES would have been about. ASSIGNMENT X: What can you say about your plans for Season Two of TOUCH? TIM KRING: The season finale changes almost everything [from] the first season. We end in a place where the slate is wiped completely clean. Jake [David Mazouz] and Martin [Kiefer Sutherland] are now in a new life, in a new part of the world, with no ties to their former life, […]Read On »

TV Review: TOUCH – Season 1 – “Noosphere Rising”

Martin (Kiefer Sutherland) finds Teller's mysterious workshop in the Noosphere Rising" on Fox's TOUCH | (c) 2012 Isabella Vosmikova/FOX

Stars: Kiefer Sutherland, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, David Mazouz, Danny Glover Writer: Tim Kring & Carol Barbee Director: Gwyneth Horder-Payton Network: Fox, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: April 26, 2012 One of the toughest challenges the writers of TOUCH must have is making sure all the different story lines intersect organically while all we viewers have to do is keep track of them. In “Noosphere Rising” the connections aren’t quite as clear, but here goes. On the main story front, Martin Baum (Kiefer Sutherland) is trying to make sense of Arthur Teller’s (Danny Glover) death, as is Clea (Gugu Mbatha-Raw). While going over the surveillance video of […]Read On »

TV Review: TOUCH – Season 2 – “Entanglement”

Stars: Kiefer Sutherland, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, David Mazouz, Danny Glover Writer: Chris Levinson Director: Milan Cheylov Network: Fox, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: April 12, 2012 One of the realities of TOUCH is that there’s generally a lot going on as the story paths weave and interchange. “Entanglement” may be this episode’s title, but it could just as easily have been the series title, as well. Martin Bohm (Kiefer Sutherland), who lost his wife when the World Trade Center came down during the 9/11 attacks, is trying to raise his autistic son Jake (David Mazouz) who can’t speak. The trick is that Jake “sees” and apparently “feels” […]Read On »

TV Review: TOUCH – Season 1 – “Safety In Numbers”

Stars: Kiefer Sutherland, David Mazouz, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Danny Glover Writer: Carol Barbee Director: Stephen Williams Network: Fox, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: March 30, 2012 Every time a show proves to be as good out of the gate as TOUCH, you almost fear that the inevitable downslide is coming. SMASH and ALCATRAZ are perfect examples of first season series that started off strong and faltered quickly. I’m hoping the bigger picture of TOUCH, since it has proven to be so focused, will be the exception to the rule. It appears it has a pretty detailed plan all mapped out in […]Read On »

TV Review: TOUCH – Season 1 – “1+1=3”

Stars: Keifer Sutherland, David Mazouz, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Danny Glover Writer: Tim Kring Director: Ian Toynton Network: Fox, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: March 23, 2012 I was a big fan of the pilot presentation of TOUCH. It brought Kiefer Sutherland back to Fox after his long stint on 24, it had a compelling, positive story from HEROES creator Tim Kring and it proved that challenging, interesting and different storytelling does have a place on network television. However, delivering in a pilot and delivering on a week to week basis are two separate things. Thankfully, the official series premiere of TOUCH, […]Read On »
