Whether you agree with their message or not, the authors of these documentaries give light to some situations, opinions and stories that the general public may not have considered. From Bill Maher’s sarcastic and potentially offensive Religulous, to Alex Gibney’s soon to be released WikiLeaks chronicle: We Steal Secrets, these films inform, question, amaze, and prove that truth really can be stranger than fiction.
Bowling for Columbine (2002)
To celebrate the release of Iain Softley’s new film Trap For Cinderella out in UK cinemas this Friday, we’ve decided to take a look at a collection of the best films to grace cinema screens which focus on the theme of Obsession
Fatal Attraction, (1987)
Dan Gallagher, played by Michael Douglas, lives a normal family life with his wife and kids until meeting Alex (Glen Close). After a one-night affair Alex becomes obsessed with Dan and begins to terrorize him and insist they continue their relationship. She goes to great lengths, pretending to carry his child and kidnapping his daughter for a start, to try to win him back. Dan is forced to attempt to preserve his family, while dealing with the consequences of his own indiscretion. This classic obsession story earned six Oscar nominations and features the brilliant Glenn Close in one of her most iconic roles.
As famed novelist Paul Sheldon (James Caan) heads home from his Colorado retreat he is met with a freak blizzard which causes a car crash in which he is seriously injured. Seemingly lucky, he is rescued by none other than nurse Annie Wilkes (Kathy Bates), who professes herself as his “number one fan.” Annie takes Paul to her isolated house in the mountains, and he starts to realise that Annie may not be as sane as he previously thought. Based on the horror novel by Stephen King, Misery features terrifyingly terrific performances, especially from Kathy Bates who won an Oscar for Best Actress.
Single White Female, (1992)
Guillermo Del Toro is a director known for the fantasy filled worlds he creates on screen, and Pacific Rim is no different.
When Kaiju, giant alien sea monsters, arrive to attack earth from a portal at the bottom of the ocean, humanity reacts by building giant robots, or Jager (German for Hunter) are piloted by 2 people and this is where we meet Raleigh Becket (Charlie Hunnam). Known for his fighting skills Raleigh, somewhat a maverick, soon finds himself at a loss after one battle leaves him feeling alone in the world.
Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson star in Pain and Gain and here is the muscle bound first poster for the movie.
Hitting our UK screens at the end of august i feel like i’ve been waiting for this movie forever after it’s spring release in the US.
Amanda Seyfried stars as the adult film star Linda Lovelace in this first trailer for the movie, Lovelace.
With a sense of excitement and a hint of Linda Lovelace’s journey to freedom this is a pretty cool trailer and definitely worth a watch. Seyfried is almost unrecognisable and she looks like she’s goign to put in yet another killer performance.
Lovelace stars Amanda Seyfried, Peter Sarsgaard, Juno Temple, Sharon Stone, Hank Azaria, James Franco as is released on August 23rd in the UK
Ryan Gosling is back on screen in Nicholas Winding Refn’s Only God Forgives which hits our screens on August 2nd.
This UK trailer is another slick instalment into the teasers of the movie which has divided opinion.
Unarguably achingly cool and drenched in the neon Refn seems to find such comfort in the trailer is definitely worth checking out!
Amanda Seyfried is at the centre of this new poster for Lovelace, the movie biopic of Linda Lovelace the adult film star who went of a journey of self empowerment and escaped the clutches of her controlling husband.
Lovelace hits UK cinemas on August 23rd
Check out the trailer for this feel good film, The Way, Way Back.
Steve Carell stars as what appears to be a total douchebag in this coming of age story where his step son finds a friend in overgrown kid, Sam Rockwell and has the summer of his life.
Here is the trailer for British drama, Trap for Cinderella. A seeming tale of obsession this looks like a beautifully shot film and i would whole heartedly recommend you take a look at the trailer.
Trap For Cinderella stars Tuppence Middleton (Trance & Tormented), Alexandra Roach (Utopia & The Iron Lady), Aneurin Barnard (Hunky Dory), Kerry Fox (Shallow Grave & Bright Star), Frances De La Tour (The History Boys) and is written and directed by Iain Softley (Hackers & The Wings of the Dove)
