Director Scott Frank Wants You to Know ‘Walk Among the Tombstones’ is Not ‘Taken 4′

Universal

Scott Frank, the director of ‘A Walk Among the Tombstones,’ wants you to know that, even though his movie stars Liam Neeson, this is not, as he puts it, ‘Taken 4.’ (Technically, ‘Taken 3’ hasn’t been released yet, but it’s probably safe if we skip ahead. The point is still taken.) And he’s right – a mystery set in 1999 against the backdrop of Y2K (of all things), ‘A Walk Among the Tombstones’ has a slower, brooding, almost noir feel to it that is not at all anything like, say, ‘Non-Stop.’ Yes, I can see why Frank wants to get the word out.

Yes, It Was OK To Tweet About Robin Williams After He Died

Over the weekend, Will Leitch wrote a piece for Matter on how social media has turned celebrity death into, as Leitch puts it, “a public grieving competition.” As is usually the case with Leitch, it’s presented in a well written and well thought out manner. I enjoy reading Leitch’s writing on sports and on entertainment because he has a way of swaying me to a mindset that I had perhaps not thought of before or outright vehemently dismissed. (I think I’m overly setting this up as to quell any thought that this is a personal attack on Will, which is certainly not the case. I even attended the guy’s wedding!) Having said all that … I did find his piece on the reaction to Williams’ death as a cynical way of looking at people.
