Radcliffe, Dano and Winstead Join the Cast of 'Swiss Army Man'

by: S. Scott Stanikmas

The upcoming film Swiss Army Man sounds like a pretty crazy idea. Deadline reports the film’s premise as “a hopeless man stranded in the wilderness befriends a dead body and together they go on a surreal journey to get home.” Add to that the fact that Daniel Radcliffe, Paul Dano and Mary Elizabeth Winstead have all signed on and you’ve got a decent cast as well. 280 more words

Love and Mercy

Word on the street is that Love and Mercy, the Brian Wilson biopic, is a great movie.  I decided to go, knowing little of Wilson’s history, other than what I gleaned from the trailer, which characterized him as  a creative soul who suffered from mental illness.   384 more words

Brian Wilson

The new Brian Wilson biopic is tremendous. Kimmel asks kids about gay marriage, hilariously. And Chris Christie (remember him?) savaged by one who knows him well

There’s a moment toward the middle of the new movie about Beach Boy Brian Wilson’s life when Wilson, played by John Cusack, is begging his new girlfriend Melinda (Elizabeth Banks) to leave his house before “the people” who are now controlling his life get back and find out what’s going on. 624 more words

Review: Love & Mercy (2015)

There is a difference between growing up with artists and discovering artists that existed before you were born, at least for me anyway.  There is a level of remove because they were not experienced in a present tense.  1,127 more words

Love and Mercy

****1/2

Paul Dano gives an astonishingly rich, award worthy performance as the younger, prime-of-creative-best Brian Wilson in Love and Mercy, a major film which easily takes a seat not only amongst the very best music biopics, but amongst those rare films that are able to dramatize the creative process. 695 more words
