The Hollywood Reporter: In some ways, Ti West making a revenge Western makes perfect sense. It's also not what I was expecting at all. Link to The Innkeepers and The Sacrament. Couldn't find a thread for The House of the Devil. And The Purge, Hawke's recent collaboration with Blumhouse.
I rather liked this. It took me a little while to get into it; the characters weren't entirely clicking for me until a plot twist almost half way through, but after that nearly everything fell into place, including what had come before. Gerwig and Hawke are great playing variations on their best known screen personas. Moore is the MVP. My review: https://catholiccinephile.wordpress.com/2016/06/14/maggies-plan/
Hmmmm.... Which Ethan Hawke movie to spend money on this month? Before Midnight or this? Actually, I was more interested in pointing out that The Purge may have more in common with Star Trek: TOS, since the plot here seems to resemble the "Red Hour" from The Return of the Archons, as well as borrowing from Straw Dogs and John Carpenter's Assault on Precinct 13th (which was remade starring Ethan Hawke, from a script by Purge director James DeMonaco). Michael Bay is listed as one of the producers, so proceed at your own will.
