    Q&A: Brady Corbet & no philosophy of a “SIMON KILLER”

    Both hypnotic and frightening, SIMON KILLER (out April 5 in select theaters and on VOD April 12) is a film I readily refer to as a sociopathic odyssey (see Fango’s review here). The titular college-aged student abroad in Paris is something of a primal, fickle blank slate but, as with most psychologically unsettling characters, there’s something recognizable as well. Lead actor Brady Corbet who, together with director Antonio Campos, shaped the role confirms as much when throughout our conversation about personality traits and soundtrack choices, points to the film as a reaction against the ever aggressive, dissociative  and misogynistic  world view of today’s young men.

    Trailer: Zoë Bell & Rachel Nichols to have it out at Tribeca in “RAZE”

    Set to world premiere at this month’s Tribeca Film Festival in NYC, Josh Waller’s tale of woman-pitted against-woman looks a rough, bare-knuckle take on the “in prison” subgenre.

    In RAZE, “Sabrina (Bell) is abducted, and finds herself in an underground lair, forced to do battle with other innocent women for the amusement of unseen spectators. Each of these reluctant warriors has something to lose, but only one will remain when the game is done.”

    Rachel Nichols (P2), Bell’s DEATH PROOF co-star Tracie Thoms, TWIN PEAKS’ Sherilyn Fenn (!) and Doug Jones round out the cast. Fango will have words on the film in just a few weeks as Tribeca gets underway. For more, visit the official Facebook, here.
