THE FAMILY BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLSEPTEMBER 15, 2013 Wasting no time delving into the story of this insanely dark and violent comedy, “The Family” is scattershot of ideas and cast members placed together in a haphazard, yet entertaining way. Lead by Robert De Niro; the cast feels fresh in their roles as a former mob family on the run. De Niro’s character in this feels … Read More Movie Review: The Family (2013)

RED LIGHTS / Though Sigourney Weaver doesn’t exactly sell this film for me, Cillian Murphy and Robert De Niro do. Also, after Martha Marcy May Marlene and The Silent House, I think a lot of us were wondering where we’d see Elizabeth Olsen next and this looks like the perfect supporting role for her eerie expertise. Weaver and Murphy play investigators of psychics and … Read More New Trailer: Red Lights – Official Trailer #1
Perhaps “Limitless” is a glimpse into our not so distant future, but no matter what, the film truly causes viewers to look deeper than the lines of the script or the content of the film. It forces you to take a good, hard look at the world around you and consider what is best for humanity as a whole. With a splash of a love story and the makings of a fantastic drug thriller, “Limitless” truly takes on a life of its own.
Robert De Niro warrants respect. Most critics revere the man. That sort of admiration is earned, not by luck, but with hard work and ventures with great directors such as Francis Ford Coppola and Martin Scorsese, both of which tend to draw the best out of De Niro.
Martin Scorsese delivers his first major feature length film in the gritty and future-making Mean Streets. In his first collaboration with Robert De Niro, Scorsese sets into the motion the wheels of success for everyone involved, including fellow friend and (at the time) aspiring actor Harvey Keitel. With intense imaginary and breakthrough performances from De Niro and Keitel, the film speaks a language that has transcended into all that Scorsese is known for.
Scorsese invents and De Niro brandishes such a well conceived character, most will find it difficult to distinguish whether Rupert Pupkin is just a troubled lunatic allowed to walk the streets or whether he is a mild and misguided childlike embodiment. Before there was Punch Drunk Love or Greenberg, Scorsese was cataloging his own brand of dark comedy and truly gives that genre a staple piece. Regardless of previous impressions of Martin Scorsese, you cannot deny his ingenuity and originality.
