‘We Wrote the Last Scene First’: David Simon on ‘The Deuce’ Epilogue
This article contains full spoilers for the series finale of The Deuce, which we reviewed here.

Though their subjects and locales are different, every David Simon show has certain common themes about individuals being crushed by the weight of American institutions. And every David Simon show ends more or less the same way: with a musical montage summing up that show’s themes while giving us a sense of what all the characters will be doing in the immediate future.

Or, rather, every David Simon show has ended that way until now.

‘The Deuce’ Finale: Co-Creator George Pelecanos On NYC Porn Biz Series’ Fade To Black

  • Deadline
Warning: The following contains spoilers to tonight’s series finale of HBO’s The Deuce.

In the end of the go-go 1970s-80s boogie of New York’s Times Square underbelly, and the whole rush of sex, cocaine and switchblades, George Pelecanos and David Simon’s HBO series about the rise and fall of the big screen X-rated film industry, The Deuce, didn’t end so much with a bang tonight, but rather, pillow talk.

The order from Mayor Koch’s office was bestowed: Lock up the bath houses and sex parlors, a move which ultimately paved the way for the Rudy Giuliani mid 1990s commercial high-end overhaul of Times Square and other Manhattan neighborhoods.

The jaw-dropping moments of the final season, set seven years after season 2 in 1985, had already occurred in previous episodes, specifically the murder of James Franco’s twin bad boy, Frankie, and the tragic suicide of

‘The Deuce’ Review: Season 3 Ends a Magnificent Story Only Television Could Tell

‘The Deuce’ Review: Season 3 Ends a Magnificent Story Only Television Could Tell
World-building is a topic that tends to come up with science-fiction sagas or fantasy epics, but “The Deuce” is one of the most impressive examples in recent memory. Not only did the HBO drama immediately immerse audiences in a historical facsimile of 42nd Street, Manhattan, with XXX theaters and denizens of the night aplenty, but creators David Simon and George Pelecanos, alongside their producing partner Nina Noble and a top-notch crew lead by production designer Scott Dougan, replicated the so-called Deuce’s transformation over three separate time periods: first in 1971, then in the high-end porn days of 1977, and finally in the turbulent ’80s, specifically 1985, as the neighborhood is about to be transformed.

In terms of sheer artistic value, these touches can’t be praised highly enough. “The Deuce” isn’t breaking the budget, compared to other Home Box Office hits, but it’s a stunning, transportive experience each and every episode.

HBO’s ‘The Deuce’ Final Season Trailer: Welcome to 1985, and Porn on VHS (Video)

  • The Wrap
HBO released the trailer for its eight-episode third and final season of David Simon’s porn drama, “The Deuce” on Thursday.

Welcome to 1985. Here’s what’s going down this decade:

Season 3 of “The Deuce” brings us into the world of 1985, just as VHS overtakes film as the primary medium for porn production and distribution. The lure of the California sunshine, the city’s aggressive takeover of commercial sex properties in Times Square and the devastating impact of the AIDS epidemic mark the end of an era. With the party of the 1970s winding down, 42nd Street has deteriorated into a hive of uncontrolled violent crime and seedy video stores, making urban renewal seem more unlikely than ever before. Following the interconnected lives of Times Square’s barkeeps, prostitutes, pimps, police, mobsters, porn actors and producers, the eight-episode third season of “The Deuce” brings the series’ arc to a dramatic conclusion.

Movie Review – Trial by Fire (2019)

Trial by Fire, 2019.

Directed by Edward Zwick

Starring Jack O’Connell, Laura Dern, Emily Meade, Jade Pettyjohn, Rhoda Griffis, Blair Bomar, McKinley Belcher III, Catherine Carlen, Noah Lomax, Whitney Goin, Anthony Reynolds, Blake Lewis, Jeff Perry, Chris Coy, Wayne Pére, and Carlos Gómez

Synopsis:

The tragic and controversial story of Cameron Todd Willingham, who was executed in Texas for killing his three children after scientific evidence and expert testimony that bolstered his claims of innocence were suppressed.

Trial by Fire makes a strong argument that while Cameron Todd Willingham was an abuser and mentally unstable, he did not murder his own three babies in an arson-related incident involving the family home. Subsequently, the state of Texas murdered an innocent man via the death penalty, ignoring this new evidence from a specialty doctor making use of emerging ideas and technology to get to the bottom of what really happened on that tragic night.

“Trial By Fire” Has Righteous Anger About Capital Punishment

The death penalty is among the most controversial and debated about laws in American politics, and even worldwide. There are passionate cases made on both sides, arguing for or against capital punishment and the right for the state to take a life. To be sure though, there’s hypocrisy as well, especially when you look at how conservative lawmakers view capital punishment/the death penalty in relation to their feelings on abortion/a woman’s right to choose. Moreover, the rush to judgment in some cases is as infuriating as anything else in the matter. The righteous indignation over that fuels the new film Trial by Fire, opening this week. This film is a true life drama/biopic, centering on the controversial and ultimately tragic case of Cameron Todd Willingham (Jack O’Connell). When the home he lives in with his wife Stacy Willingham (Emily Meade) burns down, killing their three young daughters,

Film Review: ‘Trial by Fire’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘Trial by Fire’
Cameron Todd Willingham burned his three daughters alive, at least according to the state of Texas, which sentenced him to death in 1992. In the decades since, Willingham’s trial has been relitigated in the court of public opinion by the New Yorker, whose evisceration of testimony by arson experts gives “Trial by Fire” its title. The case has also become a cause célèbre for justice advocates sifting through convictions to find a case where the American government executed an innocent man — Willingham was put to death in 2004 — a travesty they would take all the way to the Supreme Court.

Edward Zwick’s take on the tragedy is a linear biopic, a film more comfortable with time stamps than in burning down the judicial system. “Trial by Fire” opens two days before Christmas in Corsicana, Texas, as 23-year-old Willingham (Jack O’Connell) flees his flaming house, barefoot, shirtless and screaming for

Jack O'Connell in Trailer for 'Trial by Fire' from Director Edward Zwick

"There's no arson, there's no crime!" Roadside Attractions has debuted an official trailer for a true story drama titled Trial by Fire, the latest film from acclaimed director Edward Zwick. This premiered at the Telluride Film Festival last year, but not at any other fests. Trial by Fire tells the tragic and controversial story of Cameron Todd Willingham, who was executed in Texas for killing his three children after scientific evidence and expert testimony bolstering his claims of innocence were suppressed. It's an upsetting, moving story being told here by some incredibly talented actors. Jack O'Connell stars as Cameron, who looks a lot like Anton Yelchin in this, and the cast includes Laura Dern as a woman who fights for his freedom, plus Emily Meade, McKinley Belcher III, Chris Coy, Joshua Mikel, Jason Douglas, Jeff Perry, and Jade Pettyjohn. Well, this looks pretty damn good, with O'Connell giving yet another stellar performance.

A Shape-Shifting Monster Terrorizes in First Trailer For The Horror Film Discarnate

I’ve got a nightmarish trailer here for you to watch for an upcoming new horror thriller called Discarnate. The movie actually looks like it’s pretty creepy and something that I’d enjoy watching.

The story centers around a neuroscientist who becomes obsessed with a drug that allows humans to interact with spirits, but, as you might expect from a horror film, “during the clinical trial he inadvertently unleashes a deadly supernatural force on his research team.” This supernatural force that is unleashed is a monstrous shapeshifter that is inspired by Norwegian folklore.

The movie comes from first time filmmaker Mario Sorrenti, and it stars Thomas Kretschmann as Dr. Andre Mason, Nadine Velazquez, Josh Stewart, Chris Coy, Matt Munroe, Bex Taylor-Klaus, Cassandra Clark, and Ashton Amab.

Discarnate will be released on March 5th on VOD. Watch the trailer for yourself and let us know if it looks like something you’d want to watch.

Thomas Kretschmann in Official Trailer for 'Discarnate' Horror Thriller

"Maybe the serum is inducing some kind of shared psychosis." The Orchard has debuted the trailer for an indie horror thriller titled Discarnate, also known as Shapeshifter (for its release in Germany last year). The plot is about a neuroscientist's obsession with a drug that expands the human mind, who inadvertently unleashes a deadly supernatural force on his team when they start trials. Thomas Kretschmann stars as Dr. Andre Mason, and the cast includes Nadine Velazquez, Josh Stewart, Chris Coy, Matt Munroe, Bex Taylor-Klaus, Cassandra Clark, and Ashton Amaba. This looks like a very weird mix of big ideas and horror concepts that don't seem to coalesce, but I don't really know. Maybe it's not so bad. Take a look. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Mario Sorrenti's Discarnate, direct from YouTube: A neuroscientist (Thomas Kretschmann) becomes obsessed with a drug that allows humans to interact with spirits,

‘The Front Runner’ Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Hugh Jackman, Vera Farmiga, J.K. Simmons, Mark O’Brien, Molly Ephraim, Chris Coy, Alex Karpovsky, Josh Brener, Tommy Dewey, Kaitlyn Dever, Oliver Cooper, Jenna Kanell, Rj Brown, Alfred Molina | Written by Jason Reitman, Matt Bai, Jay Carson | Directed by Jason Reitman

Jason Reitman, coming off the incredibly controversial and mixed acclaim of Tully, teams up with Hugh Jackman for The Front Runner. A story that details Gary Hart’s chaotic campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination and the onslaught and fallout of controversy that followed. It is without a doubt a true return to form for Reitman with the film affirming the extraordinary talents of both Reitman as writer/director and the ever-evolving range and filmography that Hugh Jackman is achieving.

The first thing to notice is the pacing. It is astronomically quick. Never in a pedantic or overly zealous manner. Editor Stefan Grube manages to perfectly balance the

54th Chicago International Film Festival Review – The Front Runner (2018)

The Front Runner, 2018.

Directed by Jason Reitman.

Starring Hugh Jackman, Vera Farmiga, J.K. Simmons, Alfred Molina, Sara Paxton, Kaitlyn Dever, Ari Graynor, Mike Judge, Toby Huss, Kevin Pollak, Evan Castelloe, Jennifer Landon, John Bedford Lloyd, William Walker, Bill Burr, Jonny Pasvolsky, Spencer Garrett, Gabriel Manak, Lee Armstrong, Molly Ephraim, Courtney Ford, Mark O’Brien, Josh Brener, Tommy Dewey, Jenna Kanell, Chris Coy, Oliver Cooper, Mamoudou Athie, and Alex Karpovsky.

Synopsis:

American Senator Gary Hart’s presidential campaign in 1988 is derailed when he’s caught in a scandalous love affair.

Intentionally, there is a controlled mess of interactions unfolding inside and outside Democratic presidential candidate/Us Senator Gary Hart’s campaign; his nomination is an inevitability, but much like the opening text tells us, a lot can happen in three weeks for the front-runner. Directed by Jason Reitman adapting Matt Bai’s book All the Truth Is Out: The Week Politics Went Tabloid,
