    Widows (2018)

    Steve McQueen's next movie will be a major departure from 12 Years A Slave.

    Hunger (2008)

    I am two-thirds of the way through this movie and will post further thoughts after I�ve finished watching it. I don�t know what inspired me to finally sit down and watch my screener, which I received in December, although a search around the movie blogosphere today highlights multiple links to the film, which is now finding outlets in the U.S. I must have seen a related link yesterday and, having no plans last night and no assignments, decided to watch the thing. I�m really glad I did. It took several minutes to realize that the film, while good, wasn�t as predictable as I had suspected. It has long stretches of silence, and it tells its tale visually, for the most part. This shouldn�t be anything special, but it is. The film is quiet, and then it�s not. It has scenes of real brutality, and it was in those moments that I realized I was watching something extraordinary. We've seen prison brutality in other films, but this footage had an immediacy to it, combined with visual authority, that made it hard to look away from the brutal footage. (I don�t mean to imply that the harsh footage is �beautiful� in any way, only that I found myself watching it, feeling it, without feeling like I HAD to turn away from the screen). My wife was going to bed, so I decided to watch one more scene, then finish up the movie tonight. In the scene, a prisoner sits across a table from a priest and lets him know that he is going to initiate a hunger strike. The priest advises against it. This scene is extraordinary. Its single take lasted at least 10 minutes, probably at least 15 minutes, and the interchange between the prisoner, who�s prepared to act based on his understanding of what his faith requires, and the priest, who speaks with calm authority against the prisoner�s plan, might be the most penetrating scene explicitly exploring faith and conscience that I�ve ever seen on film. Seriously. It is great. I turned off the TV at the conclusion of that scene. Maybe I�ll be disappointed in the remainder of the film, but even if so, that will take nothing away from what I�ve seen so far. I had no idea this film would be such a � film! It�s brilliant so far. If you�re the list-making type, and/or the list-revising type, you should see Hunger and and consider it for your 2008 list, and maybe even your 2009 list, depending on when you had/have the opportunity to see it. I just checked IMDB and saw that the film was released in the U.S. last December, but has just expanded (which explains the sudden burst of press for this film).
  3. Links to our threads on Hunger (2008) and Shame (2011). - - - Fassbender, McQueen re-team for 'Slave' After Michael Fassbender buzzed up fall fests with his perf in Steve McQueen's "Shame," the thesp is again joining the helmer on his next project, "Twelve Years a Slave." McQueen will direct from a script he co-wrote with John Ridley. Pic also stars Chiwetel Ejiofor and tells the true story of Solomon Northup, a New York citizen who was kidnapped in Washington in 1841 and rescued from a cotton plantation in Louisiana in 1853. Plan B's Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner are set to produce the film, which is expected to start production early next year. CAA is arranging financing for the pic and representing U.S. rights. . . .
