‘End of Watch’
Cast: Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Peña, America Ferrera and Anna Kendrick
Director: David Ayer
Comment: Outstanding direction, casting, editing and script. Superb realism. Sure to land several Oscar nominations including Best Picture."
Cast: Richard Gere, Susan Sarandon, Tim Roth, Brit Marling, Laetitia Casta, Nate Parker
Director: Nicholas Jarecki
Comment: A predictable, full-throated, Hollywood, "see spot run," broad-brush hit-piece about greedy, immoral, lawless Wall Streeters. Right in Gere's and Sarandon's "wheelhouse." Ok, enough, we got it!
Cast: Nicolas Cage, Josh Lucas, Danny Huston, Malin Akerman, Sami Gayle, Edrick Browne, Mark Valley, Barry Shabaka Henley, M.C. Gainey, J.D. Ebermore, Garrett Hines
Director: Simon West
Comment: One of Cage's better recent flicks. A real nail-biter!
