- Don’t miss Life episode 2.14 titled “Mirror Ball” which will air in the US this Wednesday, February 11, 2009 on NBC at 9pm (ET).
- The region 2 DVD for The Escapist (featuring Damian Lewis) was released for sale in the UK today and some lucky fans have already received their copies.
- Mark Kermode of The Observer offered these comments about The Escapist:
“There’s no such thing as a bad Brian Cox movie and The Escapist (2008, 15, Vertigo £15.65) proves no exception. A stripped-down, prison-break thriller with echoes of The Shawshank Redemption, Rupert Wyatt’s lean, mean B-movie blends satirical spiritualism with tough-as-nuts action. Apparently, Cox landed the lead role after telling Wyatt he was fed up with playing cameos, so he’s centre stage where he belongs.”
- This 4.5 Stale Popcorn review describes The Escapist as a:
“…little slice of near-perfection. Two shades shy of a masterpiece…Wyatt has made a movie of absolute stellar visual originality… The direction, the sense of assurance in its set-pieces and the performances all make this very much worthy of your time. The title cards and music create a confident, fully realised tone that puts you in the exact mindset you need to be in for the film and Brian Cox leads the charge with a performance that just confirms him once and for all as one of the most consistent, great actors working in the industry right now…”
