Blue Bayou Review: An Urgent Immigrant Story Told With A Thoughtful, But Heavy Hand

"Where are you from?"It's a question that immediately puts Justin Chon's Antonio LeBlanc on edge, and which he avoids answering in his uneasy job interview in "Blue Bayou," Chon's third directorial effort. Antonio was born in Korea, but the only home he's ever known is the Louisiana backwaters. Adopted at three years old by white parents, Antonio spent his childhood jumping from foster home to foster home, until he built a family for himself with his loving, maybe all-too forgiving wife Kathy (a...

Justin Chon And Alicia Vikander Search For The Definition Of Home In Blue Bayou [Interview]

Justin Chon has come a long way since he wowed Sundance audiences with his 2017 film "Gook." The writer and director of "Blue Bayou" is many years removed from being "that funny Asian guy" from "Twilight" who directed and starred in the provocative black-and-white drama about two Korean-American brothers on the first day of the 1992 L.A. race riots. It wasn't long until Chon had firmly established himself as one of the exciting Asian-American indie filmmakers to watch, following up with the 2019...

Netflix's Tomb Raider Anime Casts Hayley Atwell As Lara Croft

From one British heroine to the next. Hayley Atwell is no stranger to portraying gun-wielding action heroes thanks to her turn as Peggy Carter in the lovely "Captain America: The First Avenger," her tragically short-lived ABC series "Agent Carter," and most recently reprising her role in the world of animation with the first episode of "Marvel's What If...?" series on Disney+. Between that and a handful of other roles, Atwell has proved to be an exceedingly capable voice actor (a completely diff...

Will There Be A Sequel To Mortal Kombat? Here's What We Know

(Welcome to Will There Be a Sequel?, a series where we answer that question and explore what comes next.)Ahem. "MORTAL KOMBAT!!!" Okay, now that I have your attention, let's ask an important question: Will there be a "Mortal Kombat 2"? The recent "Mortal Kombat" reboot from Warner Bros. was a financial success, and the filmmakers spoke of potential sequels in the run-up to release.

Movies To Watch If You Loved The Green Knight

The pandemic kept fans from seeing "The Green Knight" for well over a year after its planned premiere at the 2020 SXSW Film Festival was canceled. And now, filmmaker David Lowery's distinctive, striking take on the tale of Sir Gawain belongs to the fans. Though it presents Arthurian legend in a light that feels fresh and exciting, "The Green Knight" is by no means the first film to take a crack at bringing the fabled mythology to the big screen -- nor is it the first time that the ace filmmaking...

‘The Jessica Simulation’ Sounds Like Someone Decided to Take ‘Black Mirror’ a Bit More Seriously

You know you’ve got a hot property when it sparks a bidding war among seven different companies in Hollywood. That’s the case with “The Jessica Simulation: Love and Loss in the Age of A.I.” It’s a San Francisco Chronicle article that just went viral within the last month, and Universal Television has now scooped up the rights to it, with an eye toward developing it into a limited series. If you’re of the Black Mirror persuasion, the plot might remind you of the episode, “Be Right Back,” starrin...

‘The Green Knight’ Ending Explained: David Lowery Turns to a Martin Scorsese Classic to Conclude His Thoughtful Fantasy Epic

The Green Knight has been out for over a week now, so I think it’s safe to start talking about the film’s beautiful, bewitching ending. I’ve seen some proclaim the finale to be “confusing,” but I respectfully disagree. Director David Lowery cloaks the final moments of his fantasy epic in mystery, but everything you need to truly know is there, waiting for you. And it helps if you’ve seen a particular Martin Scorsese movie, too. Spoilers for The Green Knight follow.  The Green Knight For Th...

‘The Green Knight’ Star Alicia Vikander on Playing Dual Roles and Delivering a Defining Monologue [Interview]

There aren’t that many female characters in Gawain and the Green Knight, the epic 14th century poem on which David Lowery‘s The Green Knight is based. There is one significant role: that of the lady of the mysterious castle Gawain stumbles upon during his journey to meet his fate by the Green Knight’s hands, but she is less a character than a source of temptation — one of the many mystical obstacles that Gawain must overcome in order to prove his honor and chivalry. So how does Alicia Vikander,...

‘The Green Knight’ Review: A Mesmerizing, Sexy Epic That Feels Unlike Anything You’ve Seen Before

Nature will have its way, one way or another. Whether it’s by some natural disaster or by the inevitable passage of time, nature will conquer and return all things to the dust from which it came. In The Green Knight, the infinite mysteries of the natural world are reframed in an Arthurian retelling so strange and so seductive that it’s hard to stop the film from taking hold inside your brain and burrowing itself underneath your skin until your veins turn into roots and your blood changes to wat...

‘The Green Knight’ Review: Dev Patel Is a Fellowship of One in David Lowery’s Somberly Majestic Medieval Death Trip

It’s tempting to think of the first “Star Wars” movie as ground zero for the new era of popular culture. (You might say that the 21st century began, in spirit, the day “Star Wars” opened.) But part of the primal power of George Lucas’s sci-fi landmark is that it represented a kind of dawn-of-the-digital-age, joystick-happy […]

The Green Knight review: Dev Patel takes a magical and masterly quest

David Lowery’s complex, visually sumptuous and uncommercial tale of Arthurian legend revels in upending expectationsEqual parts folk, prog rock and metal, The Green Knight takes place at the inflection point when one version of the old world was supplanted by the next. In David Lowery’s liberty-taking interpretation of the character’s 14th-century origin poem, the headstrong yet not-quite-valiant Sir Gawain (Dev Patel, superb) traverses an England caught between the mystical pagan religions and ...
