Werner Herzog Says ‘Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans’ is One of His Essential Films

Fitzcarraldo. Grizzly Man. Aguirre, the Wrath of God. Little Dieter Needs to Fly. These are what many cinephiles might call the essential Werner Herzog films. For anyone who saw him for the first time as an actor in The Mandalorian, were intrigued by him, learned he was also an acclaimed director, and are looking to dive into his filmography, those entries would be a good place to start. But if you ask the man himself, another film should be included in those ranks: 2009’s Bad Lieutenant: Port ...

The Biggest ‘Run’ Easter Eggs and Cameos, and an Update on ‘Searching 2’

The filmmakers behind the new suspense thriller Run are no strangers to easter eggs. After all, they threaded an entire alien invasion story through the background of their previous film, Searching.

‘Run’ Filmmakers on Their Cinematic Influences, the Film’s ‘Mission: Impossible’ Moment, and More

Mission: Impossible is Searching director Aneesh Chaganty‘s favorite film franchise, so it’s not a surprise that he uses imagery from that movie to describe the centerpiece action sequence in his newest thriller, Run. In a recent interview, Chaganty told me that one of his movie’s biggest camera moves “was intentionally supposed to evoke the pullout of Tom Cruise on the Burj Khalifa.” But Mission: Impossible wasn’t on the primary list of cinematic inspirations for this nail-biter of a story abo...

‘Dial M For Murder’ TV Show Being Developed as Anthology Series, May Star Alicia Vikander

I once suggested that Hollywood should remake Dial M For Murder, playwright Frederick Knott’s dynamite stage play which was famously adapted into a movie by Alfred Hitchcock in 1954. Three years later, my suggestion is finally being heeded: a remake is being developed for television, with Academy Award winner Alicia Vikander executive producing and potentially starring in the project. Deadline reports that Vikander, who won an Oscar for her performance in 2016’s The Danish Girl, is set to exe...

Michael Bay’s Pandemic Thriller ‘Songbird’ Sets VOD Release for December

Producer Michael Bay‘s pandemic thriller Songbird made headlines for being the first major film to be made during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in Los Angeles. Then it made headlines again with reports that the production was not following COVID safety protocols. And yet again, Songbird made headlines for the negative online buzz around its trailer, which showed the films — let’s say ill-advised — apocalyptic vision of the pandemic. But in perhaps the most positive piece of news, and for ...

‘Run’ Review: Sarah Paulson and Kiera Allen Are Equally Strong in Aneesh Chaganty’s Relentless Thriller

Sarah Paulson gives new meaning to the overprotective mother in Run, the latest from Searching director Aneesh Chaganty. In a thriller that seems at least partially inspired by the true story of Dee Dee and Gypsy Rose Blanchard, Paulson plays Diane, a smothery mom from hell – a woman who will stop at nothing to keep her daughter from the outside world. That daughter is Chloe (Kiera Allen), a 17-year-old wheelchair user who suffers from a dictionary’s worth of ailments. Or so she’s been told. Bu...

‘The Stand’ Trailer: Whoopi Goldberg and Alexander Skarsgård Face Off in the Miniseries Adaptation of Stephen King’s Classic Novel

It might seem a weird time for CBS All Access to release its TV miniseries adaptation of Stephen King‘s pandemic apocalypse thriller The Stand, but perhaps it will be a form of escape to see a pandemic-stricken Earth become a battleground between good and evil. King’s epic novel is getting a 10-episode miniseries adaptation featuring a star-studded cast that includes James Marsden, Amber Heard, Greg Kinnear, Odessa Young, Whoopi Goldberg. Watch The Stand trailer below.

In 2008, Indian author Aravind Adiga published The White Tiger, a searing, darkly comic account of the underbelly of Indian society and the horrifying lengths that one man would take to break out of its rigid class structure. It was an astounding debut novel, especially coming in the same year that the notoriously sentimental Slumdog Millionaire became an awards darling by painting a fairy tale picture of that same impoverished class of people.
