Ethan Hawke's Macbeth and the Small Engine Repair: Among Men
Huffington Post - about 3 years
Ethan Hawke is a manly Macbeth in a leather skirt. The men in "the Scottish play" look good in skirts, even John Glover's "weird sister," with pendulous breasts. At this stylish "Macbeth" directed by Jack O'Brien, you pause wondering: Alexander McQueen? Gaultier? Marc Jacobs? Catherine Zuber's costumes, like the regal sets by Scott Pask, lighting by Japhy Weideman's, the dark, elegant look of this production throughout including the tinged with blood roses (as if competing with the color tones of "Twilight") signal the other worldly and worldly at Lincoln Center's Vivian Beaumont Theater. Hecate is a Goth goddess. When Lady Macbeth (Ann-Marie Duff) asks to be unsexed, any gloss will say, for Elizabethans that means to be released from the cares of women. And indeed, childless, murderous and ambitious, she is in every way manly in that sense except for her pale bony back in strapless. (You could see her as Marin Ireland's Marie Antoinette counterpart; in a recent downtown production, tha ...

'Low Winter Sun' Star Pans His Own Show
Huffington Post - over 3 years
"Low Winter Sun" star James Ransone said his AMC series "wasn't a good show." "I had higher expectations going in. They can’t all be winners," Ransone told The Wrap. The actor, who is currently appearing off-Broadway in "Small Engine Repair," acknowledged his show's ratings troubles. "If it doesn’t get canceled, I’ll be goddamn shocked," Ransone said. "The ratings were terrible." "Low Winter Sun" premiered to 2.5 million viewers in August, but subsequent airings of the Detroit-set drama shed viewers. The last episode of Season 1 had 600,000 viewers. "Low Winter Sun" had the benefit of a "Breaking Bad" lead-in, but that couldn't help it avoid bad reviews. HuffPost's Maureen Ryan said the drama tried "way too hard to be a Serious Cable Drama. The strain almost turns it into a parody of the genre." AMC has yet to announce a decision regarding the fate of "Low Winter Sun."

'Low Winter Sun' Paints A Dark Portrait Of Detroit
Huffington Post - over 3 years
NEW YORK — You don't need a TV drama to tell you these are dark days for Detroit. But a once-great city's headline status facing bankruptcy serves as poignant timing for the debut of "Low Winter Sun," a gritty cop show whose Motor City setting gives this unforgiving saga even greater urgency. "Low Winter Sun" premieres on AMC Sunday at 10 p.m. EDT right after the midseason premiere of "Breaking Bad," adding up to quite a drama-series twofer. Like its companion show, but in its own way, "Low Winter Sun" is not a series for the faint of heart. Of course, piling on Detroit is not the point of the series, nor is this locale even essential to its story (the series is adapted from a British miniseries that was set in Edinburgh, Scotland). But Detroit at this moment proves an all-too-apt backdrop, an even-more-accommodating setting than even the show's creative team might have planned. For starters, the police and all they survey in their bleak precinct are in desp ...

Marshall Fine: Review: Starlet
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Starlet, opening Friday in limited release, may be one of the year's most surprising little movies, a tough-minded, low-budget tale that never quite leads you where it seems to be going. Not that where it's going is somewhere you'd choose for yourself. But writer-director Sean Baker hooks you early and keeps twisting the screws in unexpected ways. Whether you mean to or not, you get caught up in its seemingly simple story, even as it reveals layers that are unexpected. Dree Hemingway plays Jane, one of those ubiquitous California girls that seem to grow out of the cracks in the sidewalks in Los Angeles' San Fernando Valley. She lives with a roommate named Melissa (Stella Maeve) and Melissa's boyfriend Mikey (James Ransone) in a relatively unfurnished townhouse with a little dog named Starlet as her constant companion. Jane's got a car but no apparent job. So it seems to be her lucky day when she makes the rounds of Sunday yard sales and comes away with a thermos. She ...

'Oldboy' Actor Promises Big Comic Book Influence
MTV News - over 4 years
With filming now underway on Spike Lee's remake/adaptation of "Oldboy," the New Orleans set has been largely leak-free, aside from a few set photos that showed off a buzz-cut, ripped Josh Brolin in the lead role, so we were more than a little intrigued when Ziggy Sobotka James Ransone opened up to Entertainment Weekly about the film in a new interview. Ransone, who only recently joined the cast of "Oldboy," replacing Nate Parker, spoke candidly about the secretive project and even directly addressed some of the concerns from the more diehard fans of the Chan-wook Park original. "I have seen the original. It was after I got the part, to see what it was," Ransone said. "There was so much build-up about it. People built it up to be a masterpiece. I didn't think it was sacrilege we're remaking it." The actor described his character as a doctor who works with the woman played by Elizabeth Olsen. Ransone's character did not appear in original film, but in the comics, and the actor say ...

TV REVIEW | 'GENERATION KILL'; Comrades in Chaos, Invading Iraq
NYTimes - over 8 years
Restraint can be as important to a serious television drama as it is to art collecting or the dinner table. Particularly when the subject is as raw as war, sentimentality or florid emotionalism can offend and even repel viewers. Its exercise can be a sign of respect and sensitivity, but it can also seem smug, a veiled form of one-upmanship.
