Rating: R Stars: George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Jack O’Connell, Dominic West, Caitriona Balfe, Giancarlo Esposito, Christopher Denham, Lenny Venito, Emily Meade Writers: Jamie Linden and Alan DiFiore & Jim Kouf, story by DiFiore & Kouf Director: Jodie Foster Distributor: Release Date: May 13, 2016 MONEY MONSTER is almost always entertaining, even when it gets predictable, improbable, or some combination of the two. As movies about the workings of Wall Street go, it has the misfortune to be following THE BIG SHORT while that film – last year’s Oscar winner for Adapted Screenplay – is still in people’s memories. MONEY MONSTER […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: STARRED UP director David MacKenzie puts himself in the slammer

STARRED UP | ©2014 Tribeca Films

As one of England’s most interesting and diverse filmmakers, Scottish director David MacKenzie has dealt with a eyes-ear-touch-taste end of the world for PERFECT SENSE, turned up the erotic heat inside an ASYLYUM and crashed a rock concert for TONIGHT YOU’RE MINE. But if there’s a particular talent that McKenzie’s eclectic filmmaking vision has, then it’s in detailing a disaffected generation, from a layabout framing a man for murder in YOUNG ADAM, a teen out to avenge his mother’s suicide in MISTER FOE and a Hollywood gigolo aimlessly shooting the breeze in SPREAD. But MacKenzie’s gallery of sometimes angry young […]Read On »

Seen walking the carpet were the stars of the film, which included: Eva Green, Lena Headey, Callan […]Read On »

We still don’t know whether this is true of CIA assassin Peter Quinn, played by Rupert Friend. What we do know is that Quinn is willing to go against orders when he believes they’re wrong, willing to threaten a superior who he believe is acting from pride rather than national protection, and that he’s willing to shoot to wound friend Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) when he thinks she’s jeopardizing a mission. Friend, born in Oxfordshire, England, earned an […]Read On »
