- Click here for a larger scan of this article in the June 30th issue of TV Guide that reveals some of the changes we can expect to see in the second season of Life starring Damian Lewis.
- TVGuide.com’s Matt Roush says that it’s unlikely the networks will rerun season one episodes of returning series such as Life this summer. 😥
- This IGN review of The Escapist with Damian Lewis says:
“… it is the structure of the film that really marks The Escapist out as something unique – director Rupert Wyatt begins midway through the escape and then cuts back-and-forth between the break-out and the events leading up to it. Initially it seems a puzzling and confusing decision, but as the film wears on the dual narratives inform and enlighten each other.
- This viewer’s comments about The Escapist include:
“… the ‘leader’ of the cell block is played by the wonderful Damian Lewis who I became a big fan of after Band Of Brothers. He has considerably less screen time here but for me, his chilling stares, and few words were some of the most memorable for me after the credits rolled…
… The Escapist really is a revelation in regards of modern cinema. It just reels you into the story from the get go and takes you on a bleak ride through the dark underbelly of the prison, metaphorical in its tone, Rupert Wyatt really has crafted something wonderful here.”
