Willem Dafoe’s THE HUNTER - On DemandMarch 21, 2012


Magnolia Pictures

On Demand Weekly provides new movie reviews of hot movies on demand and from the POV of watching from the comfort of your home. Today’s review: THE HUNTER (Magnolia) .

 

THE HUNTER

By Chris Claro

 

With his stern mien and almost-feral eyes, Willem Dafoe has always conveyed a coiled-spring ferocity that he employs to make compelling and unpredictable choices on screen. Whether he’s working on popcorn flicks such as SPIDER-MAN and SPEED 2, or appearing in more refined fare like TOM & VIV and BASQUIAT, Dafoe never phones it in, infusing every part he plays with a single-minded intensity. In Daniel Nettheim’s new film, THE HUNTER, Dafoe puts his hot-wired charisma to good use as Martin David, a mercenary on assignment to track down one of the last Tasmanian tigers in existence.

 


Decamped to the Tasmanian outback, the solitary David bunks in the home of a woman and her two children. Lucy (Frances O’Connor, A.I.) is bedridden and depressed following the disappearance of her husband in the bush. Lucy’s kids, a loquacious girl and her silent brother, are sprites of the woods, caring for their mom without electricity or clean water. David’s arrival has far-reaching effects on Lucy and family, not all of them positive. His mission makes him the target of local loggers, who see his hunt as an encroachment on their territory. David is also viewed with suspicion by Jack (Sam Neill, JURASSIC PARK), who looks out for Lucy but has his own interests to protect.

 



Nettheim tells the story of David’s pursuit with an economy that befits such a spare tale. Robert Humphreys’ cinematography captures the sweeping vistas of the Tasmanian wilderness that reinforce the solitary aspect of David’s pursuit of the spectre-like beast and the script, by Alice Addison and Wain Fimeri, is concise and has a terseness that amps up the tension between Dafoe’s interloper and the leery locals.

What Will Willem Dafoe Do On The LAST DAY ON EARTH?March 23, 2012


What Will Willem Dafoe Do On The LAST DAY ON EARTH?

IFC Films

On Demand Weekly provides new movie reviews of hot movies on demand from the POV of watching from the comfort of your home. Today’s review: 4:44 LAST DAY ON EARTH (IFC Films).

 

4:44 THE LAST DAY ON EARTH
By Adam Schartoff

 

It’s the last day of life on the planet. You’ve only got a few hours left, what do you do with that time?

It’s a terrifying thought but a provocative one as well. On the heels of Lars von Trier’s MELANCHOLIA which explores that same question but on a more transcendental level, comes Abel Ferrara’s latest movie 4:44 LAST DAY ON EARTH. This movie, too, explores the question of what one might do with those precious last hours and provides the most outrageous answer of all... not much.

 


The film, staged almost like a one-set play, takes place almost entirely inside the Downtown NYC loft of couple former addict Cisco (a superb Willem Dafoe) and artist Tina (Natasha Lyonne). The In their remaining hours, the couple make love, Skype with family and friends, order in Chinese food, make love again, argue and forgive. While outside their window some desperate events are taking place, mostly it’s just business as usual; taxis driving passengers around, people walking the sidewalks, shops open for business.

 



It’s an intriguing idea and Ferrara shoots New York like New Yorkers see it.

Ferrara has generally been more concerned with more extreme vistas in past films.; most notably films like KING OF NEW YORK and BAD LIEUTENANT. But since GO GO TALES came out to less than an illustrious reception (wrongly so) a few years ago, Ferrara has toned down the volume and made a couple of feature length documentaries.
