Film Review: 

Jia Zhang-ke was never going to make a conventional jianghu underworld movie, and even if genre elements and hard-edged character are woven into Ash Is Purest White, this typically unhurried, long-span drama is very much of a piece with the Chinese auteur’s contemplative body of work. Starting in 2001 and ending on a melancholy New Year’s Eve that ushers in 2018, the film provides a transfixing leading role for Jia’s wife and indispensable muse Zhao Tao. She plays a woman from a dying coal-mining town in love with a local mobster, their complicated relationship unfolding against the backdrop of a country changing at a dizzying pace.

The evolution of contemporary China, of course, has always been Jia’s central theme as tradition has made way for modernity, bringing both losses and gains, while Western influences and technology have pierced cultural insularity. That canvas is more casually observed here than in some of the director’s earlier films, many of which find direct echoes – the surreal UFO element of Still Life; The three-part structure of Mountains May Depart – in a discursive drama that should please amateurs of Jia’s distinctive work though perhaps contains too many cryptic detours for wider exposure.

The film opens with digital video footage shot in 2001 in Jia’s northwest home province of Shanxi, showing a baby girl in USA dungarees unsmilingly surveying a busload of chain-smoking miners. At the same time, the swelling score blends traditional themes with modern electronic sounds and a touch of ceremonial drumming. This is the new China, or at least it was at the start of the 21st century.

Zhao seems to have stepped right out of her role in 2002’s Unknown Pleasures to play Qiao, a local beauty who takes no crap from the men that frequent the gambling den in the back of a nightclub dominated by the presence of her boyfriend Guo Bin (Liao Fan from Berlin festival winner Black Coal, Thin Ice). While everyone else is busy sucking up to Bin, Qiao is a woman who refuses to be intimidated by the male environment; she greets Bin with a sharp but affectionate bite on the shoulder and gives playful thumps to the regulars in a scene that instantly establishes the character as not worth decorative prop.

It’s Qiao, not Bin, who leads to celebratory toast to “the brotherhood,” and it’s the spouse of the time-honored jianghu codes of loyalty and righteousness that will outlast the convictions of her partner.

Qiao confidently straddles the divide between traditional values ​​and the less marginalized status of the modern Chinese woman. She shows loving concern for her aging father, who rails drunkenly against threats to mineworker job security, but turns spiky with anyone lacking respect for Bin. And while she struts her stuff in a fun formation routine to The Village People’s “YMCA” (in Mountains, it was the Pet Shop Boys cover of “Go West”), she deems ballroom dancing “too Western” for her taste. But that and animal documentaries are the pet fixes of Bin’s senior associate, a crooked property developer who disappears way too soon at the hands of a rival gang.

When Bin is targeted by a group of young thugs on motorcycles – a violent action set piece that is easily the most exhilarating sequence – Qiao saves him from being beaten to death by firing warning shots from the Chekhovian gun prominently featured in earlier scenes. Her refusal to incriminate her boyfriend as the illegal weapon’s owner gets her a five-year prison sentence.

The movie’s midsection then shifts upon Qiao’s release in 2006 to the Three Gorges area as she sails down the Yangtze River looking at villages destined to disappear underwater in a planned hydroelectric dam project. Again, evidence of a vanishing China. No doubt feeling guilty about his failure to visit his in prison, Bin blocks his calls and sends other people to convey the news that he’s moved on. But Qiao wants to hear it from his lips.

In the meantime, she gets robbed of her cash and ID card, but in a wryly funny series of scenes, she makes use of skills she picked up around the prison yard to get back on her feet, starting by crashing a wedding to get a meal . The funniest of her scams involves spotting likely philanderers and bilking them for cash during family festivities at a banquet hall. The tone then shifts from amusing to mournful when she finally gets to confront Bin, in an exquisite extended scene that’s all the more affecting for its stillness and quiet.

The final section jumps ahead almost to the present day, with Qiao returned to Shanxi running to gambling house of her own, to survivor and yet an eternal outsider in this strange new world. Bin’s greatly reduced circumstances send him back to him, but while she claims to feel nothing for him, her humanity renders her unable to derive pleasure from his misfortunes. The wrap-up is somewhat protracted and seems poised to end more than once, but as always with Jia’s films, I have packs such soulfulness into the conclusion that any digressions can be forgiven.

This latest feature is Jia’s first shot by regular cinematographer Yu Lik Wai. Noted French d.p. Eric Gautier steps in with assurance, fluidly integrating footage from different generation DV cameras that allow the visual textures to change with the passing of the years. Gautier has a sharp eye for bold splashes of scorching color, but the look of the film is generally composed, almost understated, lending gorgeous scope to the occasional panoramic shots of landscapes or architecture.

The performances of the two leads are riveting. Liao initially projects a cool authority but is warm and at times almost deferential with Qiao, suggesting an understanding between the two that renders thoughts of marriage irrelevant. Even later, when experience has soured Bin, there’s a molten core beneath his abrasive manner. And Zhao virtually assembles a mini-retrospective of her roles for Jia, referencing many of her earlier characters in ways both subtle and direct, while bringing inscrutable grit that quietly evokes the tough broads of 1940s Hollywood. Their partnership is one of the great husband-and-wife collaborations of contemporary world cinema.

As the Allies were determined no former Nazis were going to be in positions of responsibility, Walter was installed as Governor to Pinneburg, a district just west of the city of Hamburg.

He was given use of a local mansion, but instead of ordering the German owners to leave, instead opted to share the property with businessman Wilhelm Ladiges, his wife Erika, daughter Heike, seven, and sons Theo, 12 and Holger, five.

The Ladiges had the first floor and the Brooks the ground floor, but both families shared a kitchen in the basement.

Film Review: 

There is a striking, butterscotch-gold silk dress that Keira Knightley wears in The Aftermath. Its neck is a halter, the straps making an X at her throat. It dips seductively low in the back; shortly, its front will be speckled with a fine spray of blood.

In the same way that Knightley wore the hell out of the vibrant emerald gown Jacqueline Durran designed for 2007’s Atonement, she makes an impression here in writer-director James Kent’s handsome second feature, set in Hamburg circa 1945, in the aftermath of the Allied victory . It feels wrong to reduce the entirely capable Knightley to her costume, especially given her nimble and lively turns in recent films Colette and the forthcoming Official Secrets, but her performance here is tic-y, affected, prim, only really coming alive in the steamy love scenes with Alexander Skarsgård’s hunky German architect (not grown man has ever looked as good in a cardigan).

Knightley plays grieving mother Rachael, who is struggling to settle into the mansion she and her husband, Captain Lewis Morgan (Jason Clarke), have requisitioned, uncomfortable sharing it with its original German owner, Stefan Lubert (Skarsgård) and his teenage daughter, Freda , (Flora Thiemann). Though its plotting becomes soapy somewhere in the first act, things eventually build to a satisfying emotional finale. Still, something is missing; the tone frustrates, caught awkwardly between lusty, full-out melodrama and thin period drama.

Film synopsis :  

According to Dirty Rotten Tomatoes, the movie is described as, “Debauchery. Greed. Murder. Welcome to Garlow. The once-peaceful frontier town is now a den of vice after vicious outlaw Dutch Albert (John Cusack) and his gang arrived and began gunning down their opposition. Undertaker Patrick Tate (Emile Hirsch) must choose between the blood money he makes burying the murderers’ victims and the threats he and his family face in this intense and gritty western.”

MOVIE INFO:  

Not to be confused with the hit World War I Documentary “They Shall Not Grow Old” by Peter Jackson, “Never Grow Old” is a dark and tells a completely different kind of story. Set in 1849 frontier America, a different era but still reminiscent of “The Witch” in tone, an Irish undertaker profits when outlaws come into his town, but his family comes under fire as the death toll rises.

The undertaker appears to have made the decision to help the outlaws in exchange for money for his family and is now struggling with his moral compass. The trailer asks what appears to be the central question of the film once you’ve crossed an uncrossable moral line: “Do you feel proud of yourself ?!”

The Western indie film is the newest adventure for John Cusack, who stars as the film’s outlaw antagonist. Cusack is currently traveling around the U.S. hosting events and screenings of some of his old classic films like “High Fidelity” and “Grosse Pointe Blank.”

Here is the official synopsis:

Directed by Ivan Kavanagh, he is the filmmaker behind the “Tin Can Man,” and “The Solution.” Starring alongside Cusack is Emile Hirsch, Déborah François, Antonia Campbell-Hughes, Danny Webb, Anne Coesens, Blake Berris, Paul Reid, and Léa Seydoux.

Former Texas Rangers Frank Hamer and Maney Gault join forces to try and capture notorious outlaws Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow.
Initial release: March 15, 2019 (USA)
Director: John Lee Hancock
Distributed by: Netflix
Music composed by: Thomas Newman

Film synopsis :  

 

Netflix has released the trailer for The Highwaymen. The film follows the “untold true story” of the former Texas Rangers (played by Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson) who captured and killed the notorious outlaws Bonnie and Clyde. The detectives were notable because they relied on their instincts and old school skills rather than the latest technology employed by the FBI.

Does anyone watch 1967’s Bonnie and Clyde and think, “I wonder what the detectives were up to?” While there’s nothing necessarily wrong with being on the side of law enforcement, they don’t seem like the most electric and intriguing part of this story, and even the film’s synopsis is like, “And these heroes didn’t use any newfangled things like science or technology to stop criminals!” While I like Costner and Harrelson, this seems like the least interesting angle available on this story, and I don’t really trust a director like John Lee Hancock to imbue with much life considering he drained the ugliness and callousness from a brutal story like The Founder. Maybe this one will be surprising, but the trailer doesn’t inspire much confidence for the movie being more than “Hard-nosed lawmen get the job done!” Something tells me we won’t be talking about this one like we still do with Bonnie and Clyde.

Check out The Highwaymen trailer below. The film will play in theaters on March 15th before arriving on Netflix on March 29th. The Highwaymen also stars Kathy Bates and Kim Dickens.

Film Review: 

Netflix releases a trailer for The Highwaymen, in which Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson hunt down two of America’s most infamous criminals, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow. The crime drama examines the perspectives of two real-life Texas Rangers, while paying less attention to the Depression-era antagonists who killed at least nine police officers and four civilians while robbing banks throughout the United States.

In 1967, Arthur Penn released the film Bonnie and Clyde, which helped kick off the New Hollywood movement and further glamorized Parker and Barrow. Over the years, photos old and new have romanticized the bank robbers’ relationship, which ended abruptly when they were gunned down on May 23, 1934 in Louisiana. Parker was 23-years-old at the time of her death, and Barrow was 25. In 2017, a previously unpublished photo emerged which purportedly shows Bonnie and Clyde embracing in Joplin, Missouri, shortly before they were tracked down. After 102 days of actively pursuing the bank robbers, Texas Ranger Frank Hamer and his six-man posse ultimately located the duo and fired over 100 rounds. In The Highwaymen, directed by John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side), Costner portrays Hamer and Harrelson co-stars as fellow Ranger Maney Gault.

Today, Netflix released The Highwaymen’s trailer, which begins with some light-hearted banter between Costner and Harrelson’s characters as they discuss their battle wounds and health. From there, the clip establishes the appropriate narrative context, while introducing government officials like Kathy Bates’ Ma Ferguson and John Carroll Lynch’s Lee Simmons. By the second half, the trailer details the painstaking investigative efforts of both Hamer and Gault, all the while using quick edits to briefly show Bonnie and Clyde. Overall, The Highwaymen trailer prioritizes mood over flashy visuals, along with the inherent danger faced by the titular lead characters. In the last shot, Harrelson declares: “Clyde may be King, but I’m a Texas Ranger.” See the trailer and poster below.

In 1993, Hancock collaborated with Costner for the Clint Eastwood drama A Perfect World. The road film chronicles a Texas Ranger’s pursuit of a convict, and Hancock wrote the script. While The Highwaymen has a similar premise, the story was written by John Fusco, the scribe behind the Billy the Kid movies Young Guns and Young Guns II. Fusco reportedly pitched The Highwaymen over a decade ago, hoping to shed more light on the Bonnie and Clyde case by telling Hamer’s story. The Highwaymen is set to premiere at South by Southwest next month and will debut on Netflix soon after.

With two established and relevant stars in Costner and Harrelson, The Highwaymen has the potential to be more than just another Western.

Film Review: 

If you’re not familiar with Finding Steve McQueen, the heist comedy dives into one of the most ridiculous, yet little-known robberies in United States history. Vikings star Travis Fimmel stars as getaway driver Harry James Barber, who—along with a crew of fellow thieves from Youngstown, Ohio—tried to steal millions in under-the-counter campaign contributions from Richard Nixon’s illegal fund. (In the true story, the gang made off with about $9 million from the United California Bank, around $54 million by today’s standards.)

Here’s what director Mark Steven Johnson had to say about the film:

The story of the United California Bank Robbery is one of the greatest stories never told. Back in 1972, the leader of a small group of safecrackers from Youngstown, Ohio got a tip from Jimmy Hoffa: President Nixon was hiding up to $30 million in dirty campaign funds in a bank in Laguna Niguel. Propelled by their hatred for Nixon, the gang travelled to California to rip off the President of The United States.



It was during this time that Watergate was brewing, putting their audacious heist right in the eye of the storm. The fact that these small town crooks were so far in over their heads brings a lot of natural comedy to the story. They actually got caught because they forgot to run the dishwasher (a new invention at the time) in their stakeout house, leaving fingerprints on the dirty dishes for the FBI to discover. You can’t make this stuff up… The story of the United California Bank Robbery is a truly incredible one — but it was Harry’s story that made me want to make this film.

finding-steve-mcqueen-imageHarry Barber idolized Steve McQueen. He even used his name as an alias while working the heist. But with the FBI hot on their tail, Harry was forced to go on the lam and assume yet another identity, “John Baker.” He hid out in a small town in Pennsylvania where he fell in love (with the sheriff’s daughter no less) and stayed for seven years before his past finally caught up to him. Most heist films are about the robbery itself. The drama comes from waiting to see if they’ll get away with it or not. In our film the heist is already over when the movies begins. Seven years have gone by. The drama isn’t whether or not Harry will get away with it — it’s what happens when his past catches up to him.

“Finding Steve McQueen” is an unbelievable true story about one of the most daring bank jobs of all time. But at its heart it’s a story about identity. Who we are versus who we want to be — and what happens when those worlds collide.

The story is an interesting combination of drama, romance and broad comedy — the kind that started my career when I wrote “Grumpy Old Men.” It’s one of those fascinating footnotes in American History that deserves to be told. And with a crooked president in the White House and a scandal looming…it’s a story that has never been more relevant.

Film Review: 

Most of us know actor Henry Ian Cusick from his work on Lost or The 100, but his new role features him going over the edge for scientific discovery. io9 is excited to exclusively debut the new trailer for Chimera Strain.

In Chimera Strain, a new film from filmmaker Maurice Haeems, Cusick plays a scientist who freezes his kids alive as he explores the DNA of an immortal jellyfish to try and cure a fatal disease they have. As you may expect, things don’t just go awry, they go horrifically wrong in this gruesome blend of sci-fi, psychological thriller, and horror.

The Chimera Strain, which also stars Kathleen Quinlan, Karishma Ahluwalia, and Jennifer Gjulameti, hits select theaters and VOD on March 15. What do you think of the new trailer?

Chimera Strain is an upcoming high-concept/low-budget sci-fi film about a mad scientist trying to save his children by editing their DNA. It comes from first time writer-director Maurice Haeems. I love a mad scientist story, and with all the controversy and philosophical dilemmas posed by CRISPR, this movie seems to be very timely. Let’s hope that it lives up to its potential.

Here is the synopsis: “A brilliant but disturbed scientist named Quint (Henry Ian Cusick) freezes his own two children alive, while he races to cure their deadly genetic disease by decoding the DNA of the immortal Turritopsis jellyfish.”

Film synopsis :  

When the end of the world comes, who would you rather have protecting you more than John Goodman? Goodman may be our most versatile actor working today; in the last two years he has revisited his sitcom roots (“Roseanne”), brought gravitas to a stylish indie spy thriller (“Atomic Blonde”), and anchored a blockbuster hit with critical support (“Kong: Skull Island”). For his next trick, he will combine those skills to good use in Focus Features’ spring sci-fi offering, staving off an alien invasion in “Captive State,” which just released its first official trailer.

Though much is still unknown about the movie’s particulars, the official synopsis reads: “Set in a Chicago neighborhood nearly a decade after an occupation by an extra-terrestrial force, ‘Captive State’ explores the lives on both sides of the conflict – the collaborators and dissidents.”

This new sci-fi post-apocalyptic film, written and directed by Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), explores what happens when it’s already too late for humanity. The film picks up 10 years after aliens took over the planet and established a governing body called “The Legislature,” but even before that, society was plagued by war, famine, crime, disease, and disasters.

Captive State looks equal parts The Purge, Colony, and Arrival with perhaps the greatest resemblance to Battlestar Galactica Season 3. Or better yet, Interstellar if they never sent anybody into space.

As part of a historical record on a viral marketing website, one section reads, “In its darkest hours, an alien force saw opportunity and swooped in to enslave humanity under the guise of “peaceful unity.”

Intrigued? Here’s everything else we know about Captive State.

John Goodman plays Chicago Police Officer Mulligan, a man who fell in line with great zeal after the Legislature took over and is eager to please his alien overlords. Of course, not everyone is ready to fall in line. Ashton Sanders plays Gabriel, a young man who becomes connected with a rebellious organization called “Phoenix.”

Hence the synopsis: “Set in a Chicago neighborhood nearly a decade after an occupation by an extra-terrestrial force, Captive State explores the lives on both sides of the conflict — the collaborators and dissidents.”

The first full-length trailer for Captive State has been released and it looks intense. John Goodman and Ashton Sanders star in the gritty political sci-fi movie, which looks incredibly dark and compelling. Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) directed the movie and it takes place in Chicago, ten years after an occupation by an extraterrestrial force, but it doesn’t focus on one side of the conflict. Instead it looks at those who decide to collaborate with the aliens and those who do not. It looks like it’s a lot tougher for the dissidents than it is for the collaborators as seen in the trailer.

Ashton Sanders’ Gabriel character in Captive State can be seen asking for a lawyer after being detained, but John Goodman’s character lets him know that things don’t work like that anymore since the aliens arrived on the scene. Gabriel is being torn in two different directions: either join up with the collaborators or meet up with the Phoenix resistance group. By the looks of the trailer, Gabriel chooses the latter, which will be a struggle to stay alive and out of sight from the alien surveillance.

 

Captive State was originally supposed to hit theaters in August of this year, but it was later pushed back to March of next year, though no reasoning was given. The first trailer focused on the aliens while the second put the focus on The Phoenix resistance. The latest trailer brings everything all together, while keeping the plot details under wraps. There is definitely some heavy sci-fi vibes going on, but there is clearly something else far more unique bubbling underneath the surface, which is evident right from the start of the latest trailer.

In August of 2016, it was announced that Rupert Wyatt had signed on to direct Captive State from a screenplay written by Wyatt and his wife Erica Beeney. Later that year, it was revealed that John Goodman and Ashton Sanders joined the cast. In early 2017, it was announced that Vera Farmiga, Machine Gun Kelly, and newcomer Jonathan Majors had joined the cast as well. Kelly claims that he was roughed up during the filming by someone playing a police officer and suffered a hairline fracture of his sternum. The rapper claims that he was told to “suck it up” on the set.

Now that we have a better look at Captive State, more people will likely get excited about what the movie actually is. There’s clearly a political undercurrent, but it’s unclear what it is at this time. Why would the humans want to collaborate with the aliens? Thankfully, we won’t have to wait too much longer since the movie opens on March 29th, 2019.

The directorial debut of Jane the Virgin actor Justin Baldoni, Five Feet Apart stars Haley Lu Richardson and Cole Sprouse as cystic fibrosis patients in the same hospital who fall in love but aren’t allowed physical contact with each other due to their disease. The film’s title comes from the “six foot rule,” a guideline set by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation that says two patients must be kept at a minimum of six feet (two meters) apart to minimize the risk of cross infection.

Film Review: 

This March, Haley Lu Richardson and Cole Sprouse will surely tug at your heartstrings with the release of their new film, Five Feet Apart. They play Stella and Will, two teens who fall in love while dealing with their respective battles with cystic fibrosis. As the trailer teases, you will definitely cry more than once, get swept off your feet, and yes, be entranced every time Cole strokes his luscious hair.

The film follows Stella (Haley Lu Richardson) and Will (Cole Sprouse), two teenage cystic fibrosis patients who fall in love. Due to their mutual illness, the pair must remain six feet apart from each other at all times.

Moises Arias, Kimberly Hebert Gregory, Parminder Nagra, Claire Forlani, Emily Baldoni, Elena Satine, Gary Weeks and Sophia Bernard round out the cast. The film was directed by Justin Baldoni and is based on the Rachel Lippincott novel of the same name, with Mikki Daughtry and Tobias Iaconis adapting the book for the big screen.

The trailer opens with Will introducing himself to Stella. After Nurse Barb (Hebert Gregory) interrupts and tells the two to remain six feet apart, Stella says, “Let me guess. You’re the kind of guy that ignores the rules cause it makes you feel in control. Am I right?”

In a vlog, Stella explains that her lung function is down to 35 percent. A montage shows the nurse sorting out medication and Stella walking down a hallway and putting on a face mask when she sees Will.

“People with cystic fibrosis aren’t supposed to get within six feet because we could end up catching each other’s bacteria,” Stella explains. Due to the fact that she is waiting for a lung transplant, Stella makes sure to take care of herself.

While Stella takes her health regimen seriously, Will believes that they’re “breathing borrowed air.” She then requests to see his regimen and volunteers to do her treatments with him to ensure that he takes his health seriously.

The two eventually develop feelings for each other and decide to go on a date, though the six-feet separation rule proves to be a challenge.

Later in the trailer, Stella sees the implications of Will’s B. Cepacia infection. “Catch his infection and you can kiss new lungs goodbye,” Barbs tells her.

“This whole time I’ve been living for my treatments instead of doing my treatments so I can live,” Stella says in a voiceover as a montage plays of her and Will bonding.

Will later watches one of Stella vlogs that shows her explain that she has cut 12 inches off of the six-foot separation rule. “After all the CF has stolen from me, I don’t mind stealing something back,” she says. “One foot. Just one foot closer.”

Five Feet Apart will be in theaters March 15. Watch the full trailer above.

 

Richardson has her plate full with work and oh, planning for a wedding that might not happen for a while. In 2018, Richardson and her longtime beau, Jane the Virgin actor Brett Dier, announced their engagement after Richardson popped the question. “We’ve been together for seven years. We just want to take our time.

Film Review: 

When Wonder Park, the embattled Paramount and Nickelodeon animated film, released its first trailer, we had some concerns. Now, we have even more.

The original question, which still stands, is: how does the theme park in this movie (which may or may not actually be named Wonder Park) get its denizens? The whole thing seems to be run by animals and one small child, so it stands to reason that they’re not exactly running a business here with robust ticket sales, safety regulations, and concession stands. Did these animals kidnap a buncha people?

Now, after seeing the second trailer for Wonder Park, I have even more questions. Specifically: what is the history of theme parks in this world? Per this trailer, we get more of the actual story outline of the film, which stars the voices of Jennifer Garner, Kenan Thompson, and John Oliver, among others. The young heroine, June, creates a theme park in her backyard, to disastrous effect. Defeated temporarily but not in spirit, June absconds to the woods? I guess? And finds… the real theme park she imagined, built IRL, and probably also constructed in detail in Rollercoaster Tycoon? And it’s buried in the forest, watched over by talking animals, one of whom is John Oliver.

Okay, uh, how does a theme park get buried in the forest? Provided this isn’t some profound act of imagination on the heroine’s part, this suggests a world with such a history that a theme park could be very old, and could go not just abandoned but forgotten long enough for it to be almost entirely reclaimed by vegetation. What apocalyptic terror would be necessary to create these conditions? What, but some awful act of violence or disaster, could create such a rift in collective memory? Whither is your history, Wonder Land? What has become of you?

 

Oh, yeah, and this movie looks pretty cute, too. It comes out on March 15th, and in the meantime stick with us at io9, where we come from the future and overthink cartoon movie trailers.

Jay is a man with a secret who travels from Britain to Pakistan to attend a wedding – armed with duct tape, a shotgun, and a plan to kidnap the bride-to-be. Despite his cold efficiency, the plot quickly spirals out of control, sending Jay and his hostage on the run across the border and through the railway stations, back alleys, and black markets of New Delhi – as all the while attractions simmer, loyalties shift, and explosive secrets bubble to the surface.

News

The internet will correct me if I’m wrong, but I’m pretty sure “The Wedding Guest” is the first time Dev Patel has handled a firearm in one of his movies. Five minutes into Michael Winterbottom’s Pakistan-set thriller, the actor walks into a shop, asks to try out a gun, and proceeds to inspect a semiautomatic pistol before settling on another. At this point, we don’t know the character’s name — and besides, we’ve seen him slip passports with four aliases into his suitcase — but Winterbottom is already actively manipulating stereotypes.

“The Wedding Guest” turns out to be the story of a professional, played by Patel but of the sort usually embodied by white men with square jaws and power-drill stares, who is contracted to kidnap a woman (Radhika Apte) on the eve of her arranged marriage and deliver her to the man she loves. But Winterbottom, as globe-trotting and genre-defying a filmmaker as they come, shows only limited interest in telling that kind of movie, leveraging unconventional settings, actors, and techniques to overturn what we expect from such a plot.

 

So, while “The Wedding Guest” assumes the superficial aspects of an action movie, it is, in fact, a far subtler enterprise at its core: In its attention to the gender dynamics and subtle power games underlying such a premise, the film plays out like Iranian director Asghar Farhadi’s “About Elly” with guns, providing an edgier (if ultimately less effective) take on how a woman betrothed to a man she doesn’t love manages to disappear. Beneath the surface — and the somewhat artificial suspense of whether Apte’s character will run off with Patel — Winterbottom’s film serves as a critique of the limited options available to women in the Middle East.

It is not, as you may imagine, a movie that audiences will be flocking to see in theaters, or on demand for that matter, and through indie distributor IFC Films has enjoyed a certain amount of success with Winterbottom (dating back at least to “The Killer Inside Me,” but with “The Trip” and its sequels especially), this title seems destined soon to be forgotten by all but Patel’s fans.

The actor’s career began just over a decade earlier with the British coming-of-age series “Skins,” and took off in a significant way the following year when he starred in the Oscar-winning “Slumdog Millionaire.” Around that time, Patel gave an interview to a British paper in which he noted, “Asian actors tend not to be sent Hollywood scripts that are substantial or challenging. I’m likely to be offered the roles of a terrorist, cab driver, and smart geek.” This film is a step above, but hardly the breakthrough Patel deserves.

As fellow British actor Riz Ahmed recently explained to NPR, non-white actors often face a frustrating three-stage process to overcome typecasting. Early on, they tend to be offered what he called “Stage 1” roles — reductive, race-based bit parts — whereas “The Wedding Guest” provides Patel a rarer “Stage 2” opportunity, what Ahmed describes as “stories that take place on explicitly ethnicized terrain, but aim to subvert those [stereotypes].” The goal, in Ahmed’s eyes, is to reach “Stage 3,” “where I’m not shackled to my ethnicity.” But Patel has a unique kind of problem: He’s an infinitely likable actor of limited range, and as such, he’s bound by more than just his skin color: Regardless of race, he’s a scrawny, youthful, and thoroughly non-threatening presence onscreen.

To see Patel wielding a gun, as we do in “The Wedding Guest,” doesn’t register as it ought to. It’s assumed, but never explored, that such a for-hire specialist would have navigated situations like this before, but he botches the extraction, shooting an armed guard in the escape, and he does a clumsy job of explaining the situation to the client. Why present Patel as the middleman at all? Wouldn’t it have been more directly engaging if he had been the bride-to-be’s secret lover, come to spirit her away on the eve of her marriage? And wouldn’t the unexpected course their relationship sets in its final minutes have worked just as effectively if he’d been infatuated with her since the beginning, as opposed to falling for her so late in the film?

Winterbottom has spent far more time than most Western directors making Middle East-set stories. He first featured Pakistan in 2002’s “In This World,” and has returned to the region several times since, which pays off here in the almost casual way he incorporates the atmosphere of his Indian locations — whether it’s a crowded market or an isolated desert-scape — into the film. What’s lacking is personality from the human characters, which is a serious failing, considering how the film shifts into character mode as Apte slowly emerges as an equal to Patel, while both remain too guarded for audiences to fully appreciate as people.

That’s not entirely surprising since Winterbottom’s best movies have been those credited to writers other than himself. Here, watching him juggle the expectations of genre with the elements intended to make this particular entry feel original, one is easily reminded of more successful attempts at refreshing the abduction/rescue formula — films like “Out of Sight” or “You Were Never Really Here,” whose directors mixed a specificity of character with their lead actors’ natural charisma to steer things in an original direction. Winterbottom works differently, taking a material shot in a dizzying array of locations and honing it down as if making a documentary. While that approach makes for an unconventional thriller in an unusual milieu, it mistakes texture for the sort of character details that would have made such an excursion feel convincing.

Review

Michael Winterbottom’s thriller The Wedding Guest finds Dev Patel in a broody, sexy role — a departure from his typically fresh-faced, nice-guy performances — and it’s impressive how well the actor fits the part; his long face and lanky frame give him a captivatingly melancholy countenance. In the film’s opening passages, as he arrives in Pakistan and moves from town to town, shifting identities and picking up tools — a car, a gun, duct tape, etc. — he makes for a dashing, mysterious presence. We don’t know what he’s up to, but we know it can’t be good. But still, it’s Dev Patel, so we know it can’t be too bad either. He shows his range without entirely undermining his persona, the sign of a true movie star.

Patel’s character is named Jay in the credits, though I don’t think he ever gives his name in the film. Or rather, he gives multiple names. He’s a professional, hiding beneath different layers of subterfuge. He’s arrived at a wedding in Pakistan to seize the bride-to-be, Samira (Radhika Apte) and deliver her to her true love Deepesh (Jim Sarbh), who hired Jay back in England. It’s an intriguing, modern-day spin on a common story found in many cultures: the bridal-abduction romance. Jay and Samira move from town to town, covering their tracks and making their way to Amritsar, India, where Deepesh is supposed to wait for them. But the lover isn’t there; he’s having second thoughts, and he’s also a little freaked out that Jay killed a guard during his attempt to sneak Samira out of her home.

I won’t say more about the plot, though we sort of know where it’s all headed. The chemistry between Patel and Apte is exciting; they’re both beautiful, but mournfully so. She’s just had her life upended, and he’s in the middle of a job that’s falling apart. When they reach out and touch, it doesn’t just feel like an inevitable narrative development; it feels like two broken souls hanging on for dear life.

Winterbottom is one of those prolific directors with a reputation as a journeyman: His work has gone from self-aware adaptations like Tristram Shandy to playful biopics like 24 Hour Party People to vérité social dramas like In This World; he’s also done a variety of documentaries, though his best-known recent pictures are probably the Steve Coogan–Rob Brydon The Trip films. But before he started making a thousand movies a minute, Winterbottom’s work had an ineffable romantic sweep and formal grace.
