Vincent D’Onofrio Talks ‘Mall,’ the Intense Indie Film He Made With Linkin Park’s Joe Hahn

Vincent D'Onofrio Mall Interview
Paragon Pictures

"Everybody needs to be reminded that I’m a character actor and I’m not just the kind of guy who plays a cop," Vincent D'Onofrio tells ScreenCrush in an interview. The actor is going from his most recognizable role as Det. Robert Goren in 'Law & Order: Criminal Intent' to the directorial debut of Linkin Park member Joe Hahn, 'Mall,' in which he portrays a gentleman caught sneaking a few too many peeks at a woman undressing in a fitting room -- but his depraved character is just one of many lenses through which we view the heavy story at play.

Monday Morning Critic: A Look Back at the Week That Was

Monday Morning Critic
AMC/Showtime/FX

I always thought that was a fascinating way to discuss the broad topic of baseball: Rather than write about one thing, Gammons wrote about all things, and the format allowed him to shift things around on a weekly basis as the season itself changed. It seems like a fine approach to appropriate here with this, the inaugural edition of the Monday Morning Critic. I’ve long wanted to adopt Gammons’ approach and turn it towards television. One could argue the lifecycle of certain discussion points is more and more finite as the sheer amount of good TV increases and insta-analysis of Twitter renders episodes moot a mere hour after initial airing. But I’m hoping that’s not the case, and that we can all meet here each Monday to look back at the week that was.

Bill Murray and Robert Downey Jr. at TIFF with ‘St. Vincent’ and ‘The Judge’

It’s a weird thing to openly root for a movie that you find yourself not enjoying. This is how I felt while watching Bill Murray in ‘St. Vincent’ on the second day of the Toronto International Film Festival. I can’t be the only one who does this, right? It’s a situation in which you deeply admire the actors in a movie – in this case, Murray and Melissa McCarthy – and for the first, say, 45 minutes, you’re trying to convince yourself what you’re watching is “good.”

These are a few of the potential villains who could rear their ugly heads in 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2.' Some feel like sure things, others are longshots and some may be prove impossible for legal reasons, but each of them would give Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket and Groot enough conflict to sustain a two hour movie.

‘Big Hero 6′: Can the Disney Legacy Make This Marvel Superhero Story Stand Out?

bh6feat

There was a post-”princess movie” moment where Disney chased the “boy demographic.” It didnt' work out so well; Films like 'Atlantis' and 'Treasure Planet' came and went. Under the current Disney brand, 'Big Hero 6' isn't as aggressively alternative — not with Marvel as an in-house entity — but but the competition raises questions of what the Mouse House can bring to the table. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was basically a cartoon. Guardians of the Galaxy's five-character team had two fully CG characters. The Transformers moves are basically the pixel equivalent of a Stan Brakhage film. And now there's 'Big Hero 6,' a fully animated feature competing with live-action bombast. How will it stand out from the crowd? The Walt Disney legacy, and the idiosyncratic creative process that comes with it.
