Wayward Pines, Ep. 1.06, “Choices”

After the events of “The Truth,” it’s understandable that the next installment of Wayward Pines would feel like the series was coming back down to earth.

Wayward Pines, Ep. 1.03, “Our Town, Our Law”

Great Premise Wasted; 5 Great Stories That Deserved Better Movies

Such is the current culture in the filmmaking world that the very notion of suggesting ‘remake’ is considered sacrilege, but the problem isn’t in the concept, it’s in the choices. The worst thing you can do in the writing room, and on the set, is mishandle a great story.

‘Prisoners’ is an engrossingly gruelling drama soaked in blood, grief and indefensible deception

Overstuffed with an A-list cast, Denis Villeneuve’s (Incendies, Polytechnique) Prisoners is a funereal and often shocking meditation on what people are capable of doing for their loved ones. Permeated with savagery and blood, this is a film that forces ghastly situations on the audience which they’ve likely seen before but are hopefully not entirely numb to processing from a victim’s point of view. The drive behind what holds a family together for better or worse is showcased in painful detail. Gruesome, agonizing, and distressing, Prisoners goes for the jugular and leaves everyone wincing at the hideous view of the human condition that it leaves in its wake.
