In Part 2 of Assignment X’s exclusive interview with Robert Nathan about LUCKY BASTARD, the NC-17 thriller set in the adult film industry that Nathan directed and co-wrote/co-produced with Lukas Kendall, the filmmaker talks working with the cast and about the movie’s themes. ASSIGNMENT X: What was the rehearsal process like? ROBERT NATHAN: I knew we’d be tight on time during shooting. You’re shooting essentially at television pace, not feature film pace, because time is expensive. So a lot of the character development happened in long discussions with the actors before we started shooting. When shooting we’d rehearse a scene […]Read On »

While speaking to a small group of press after the PROMETHEUS panel at Wondercon 2012, screenwriter and producer Damon Lindelof spoke a little bit more in detail about where a PROMETHEUS 2 could go. It also shed some light on why PROMETHEUS has the “DNA” of the ALIEN films, but isn’t a really a true prequel. “If ending this movie is going to take you to the room where John Hurt is walking into that room full of eggs, we know where it’s going to end,” says Lindelof and why they didn’t do that? “Real good stories, you don’t know […]Read On »

Movie Review: PROMETHEUS

Rating: R Stars: Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Guy Pearce, Logan Marshall-Green, Sean Harris, Rafe Spall Writers: Jon Spaihts and Damon Lindelof Director: Ridley Scott Distributor: Twentieth Century Fox Release Date: June 8, 2012 Prior to PROMETHEUS, director Ridley Scott has, in his prolific career, made only two other science fiction films. However, those two films were ALIEN and BLADE RUNNER. It’s hard to imagine what current science fiction (and, in the case of ALIEN, creature horror) films would look like without those two seminal features in the canon, except to say that things would be different.

While speaking on the panel at Wondercon 2012 for PROMETHEUS, the thinly veiled ALIEN prequel, director Ridley Scott hinted that there will be more movies in his latest science-fiction opus if things go well with this one. “It’s been a long time since I’ve done science-fiction which doesn’t mean I wasn’t trying couldn’t come across anything that was of interest with me,” says Scott who says the description that this has “the DNA of ALIEN” is a perfectly good description.” Once Scott began to work with screenwriter Damon Lindelof, the original seed of an idea that Scott had developed for […]Read On »

Movie Review: HAYWIRE

HAYWIRE movie poster | ©2012 Relativity

Rating: R Stars: Gina Carano, Channing Tatum, Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, Michael Angarano, Antonio Banderas, Michael Douglas, Bill Paxton Writer: Lem Dobbs Director: Steven Soderbergh Distributor: Relativity Media Release Date: January 20, 2012 There are few if any movies where CIA agents and their allies are perfectly comfortable with all of their work colleagues. It’s therefore no big surprise to the audience when government “private contract” black ops specialist Mallory Kane (Gina Carano) gets burned by someone she trusted. It’s not surprising either, what with HAYWIRE being an action movie, that the more Mallory understands she’s being messed with, the […]Read On »

Nevertheless, he’s made a fine one with A DANGEROUS METHOD, about the making and unmaking of the real-life professional relationship and personal friendship between Sigmund Freud (Viggo Mortensen) and Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender) […]Read On »
