The jury isn’t out for ‘Lawless.’ The John Hillcoat helmed film is getting rave reviews at Cannes and I expected nothing-less.
John Hillcoat is one of the finest directors in the world. He has a talent for creating unseemly mood. If you’ve seen The Proposition (2005), starring Guy Pearce and Ray Winstone, you know what I mean. He orchestrates his films much like a conductor. None of his characters are ordinary or one dimensional. The Road is another fine example of his work. He captured the bleak post apocalyptic world through the lens. Say what you will about the story arch of the film it’s self, the production was marvelous and I enjoy both the land scape and the stories told.
‘Lawless‘ has a first rate cast and that’s not a platitude. The film stars Tom Hardy, Jessica Chastain, Guy Pearce, Gary Oldman, Shia LaBeouf and Mia Wasikowska. What a talented group. It took John Hillcoat to bring such a fine group together I’m sure.
Lawless is Set in the Depression-era Franklin County, Virginia, where a bootlegging gang is threatened by authorities who want a cut of their profits. It’s a throw back through and through and I’m happy The Weinstein Company has their hands all over this film. Say what you will about Harvey Weinstein, the man stays out of the way and gives artistic license to all his filmmakers who are worth their weight in salt.
Here are two clips from the film ‘Lawless,’ set to hit theaters on August 31st, 2012.
