Looks Like Olga Kurylenko Is About to Join the Majors
Feb 25 2013
Earlier this year, VICE Films and Grolsch Film Works teamed up with the directors Harmony Korine, Alexey Fedorchenko and Jan Kwiecinski to make a three-part film called The Fourth Dimension. Now, Grolsch Film Works have a new website where you can find out what they’ve been up to and read/watch interesting stuff about films. Every week we'll be plucking the highlights. This is that.
AN INTERVIEW WITH OLGA KURYLENKO
You get the feeling that Ukrainian actress Olga Kurylenko hasn't yet had her due. The 33-year-old ex-model has lit up a dead-eyed videogame adaptation (Hitman), the most disappointing Bond of the Craig era (Quantum Of Solace), and now the middling Terrence Malick film To the Wonder, in which she is – comfortably – the best thing. Largely improvised, and whittled down from hours of footage, Wonder sees her fret and float around a desolate Oklahoma town as Ben Affleck's (and, you sense, Terrence Malick's) European muse. In person, she's more than professionally enthusiastic about the film, and why not? Minor Malick is still Malick, and with sci-fi blockbuster Oblivion just around the corner, she could be about to join the majors.
WIN RUST AND BONE ON BLU-RAY!
To celebrate the release of Rust and Bone, out on DVD and Blu-ray 25th February, we've teamed up with Studiocanal to give you the chance to win a copy of the award-winning film on Blu-ray.
The multiple-award-winning Rust and Bone is one of the best and most talked about films of 2012. It received two BAFTA nominations, for Best Leading Actress (Marion Cotillard) and Best Film not in the English Language.
A REVIEW OF 'TO THE WONDER'
After the cosmically ambitious The Tree of Life, Terrence Malick's most commercially and artistically successful film since 1978's Days Of Heaven, you'd have thought the reclusive director might need to take his foot off the pedal, say with a remake, a buddy-buddy cop flick or perhaps another 20-year rest. But he's back – only 12 months later – with this Moogy meditation on the transience of love.
A LIST OF THE WORST LINE DELIVERIES
It's only a matter of days until we discover who the Academy of Arts deem to be the best performances of the past year. Jennifer Lawerence in Silver Linings Playbook? Daniel Day-Lewis in Lincoln? They all make it look so easy. You know who doesn't make it look easy though? These guys and their inability to deliver lines in a manner in which any human would. Ever. You know what's worse? There's actually two Academy Award winners and an Academy Award nominee in this list.
