- Philip Haas’s Iraqi War film The Situation starring Connie Nielsen and Damian Lewis was recently released on region 2 DVD in The Netherlands.
The film will also broadcast on Belgian television throughout February on Prime TV channels.
- (Spoilers!) James Rocchi of Cinematical says of The Escapist with Damian Lewis:
“…Directed and co-written by Rupert Wyatt, The Escapist doesn’t slide into the easy clichés of the prison break film; this isn’t a celebration of the human spirit’s noble capacity for transcendence at the level of the good and glorious but of the human spirit’s brute capacity for endurance at the level of guts and gristle…
…Lewis and Mackintosh are both chilling, and Cox’s work at the center of the film is among the best things he’s done. The Escapist wasn’t the most meaningful or brilliant thing I saw at Sundance, nor was it the most visceral or exciting, but I’d be hard-pressed to think of another film that balanced so perfectly between those two extremes.”
