    Cannes Review: The Bondurant Boys Deal Moonshine & Violence In John Hillcoat's Lively 'Lawless'

    "It's not violence that sets men apart, it's the distance they're willing to go," Forrest Bonduarant (Tom Hardy) tells his youngest brother Jack (Shia LaBeouf) in "Lawless." And with a set of brass knuckles in his pocket and a pistol in his waistband, he knows what he's talking about. That theme is ...

    CANNES 2012 | 'Lawless' Director John Hillcoat on Violence, Genre and Moralist Filmmaking

    Australian director John Hillcoat may not seem the most obvious choice to direct "Lawless," a Prohibition-era thriller set in the American South based on Matt Bondurant's 2008 novel "The Wettest County in the World." But Hillcoat has more ties to the U.S. than expected: He gr...

    Watch: John Hillcoat Directed Ad For The U.K. National Lottery & Jordan Scott Shot Armani Spot Featuring Rihanna

    John Hillcoat just doesn't do uplifting. He has a pretty good handle on the heartbreaking and emotionally affecting, but raising your spirits just doesn't seem to be his bag (at least in his feature films; remember that Levi's ad?). While we wait patiently for Hillcoat's next fe...

    There are certainly some pretty horrible film titles that get churned out on a regular basis, and while they probably mean little in the grand scheme of things, naming a movie is still something Hollywood takes very seriously. On that note, it looks like a trio of highly anticipated films have had t...

    Annapurna Pictures To Finance John Hillcoat's Cop Drama 'Triple Nine'; Could It Be His Next Film?

    Last week, one of our eagle-eyed writers noticed that the generally secretive Annapurna Pictures website had listed Spike Jonze’s latest film as “in production.” Intrigued, we immediately shot off emails to Annapurna reps (the company itself does not answer questions about its production by phone). ...

    Ray Winstone Says John Hillcoat & Nick Cave's 'The Death Of Bunny Munro' "Will Make 'Shame' Look Like Teletubbies"

    It has been a long time since we heard anything about Nick Cave's "The Death Of Bunny Munro," so we'll bring you back up to speed. First conceived as a script, when Cave couldn't get it produced he turned the story into a novel that is on bookshelves now. But in a little bit of...
