New Trailer: Red Lights – Official Trailer #1

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.

Proof Review: Limitless (2011)

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.

Proof Review: Taxi Driver (1976)

Proof Review: Mean Streets (1973)

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.
