Here’s my TV review with clips of David Lowery’s melancholy crime drama Ain’t Them Bodies Saints starring Casey Affleck, Rooney Mara, and Ben Foster on KCTV5′s It’s Your Morning. The movie opens today in Kansas City at the Tivoli and Glenwood Arts theaters.
Oblivion isn’t a total loss, but it is disappointing not only to see the film abandon the interesting sci-fi issues around its central love triangle, but also see it devolve into a series of hackneyed action-movie cliches — including some really insulting third-act dialogue.
If you’ve seen the trailer, you are probably expecting an action-based crime thriller where a frustrated local cop (Bradley Cooper) chases down a mysterious motorcycle bandit (Ryan Gosling) who’s been robbing banks. Luckily, there’s a lot more to the movie than that.
Here are my interviews with director Fede Alvarez and Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, and Jessica Lucas of the ‘Evil Dead’ remake from KCTV5 It’s Your Morning.
