Best movie news in yonks
James Gray is making another film! I'm a huge fan of his unjustifiably buried 2000 Queens mob drama The Yards, which, in other good news, apparently came out on DVD in some kind of director's cut last month, amending some of the damage done to it by Harvey Scissorhands on its initial release. And actually ending up shorter. So glad to see this smashing film getting a bit more respect, and that Gray's Hollywood currency is back on the rise. The new film's called "We Own The Night", and just from that title it sounds very much like my kind of Gray movie: moody, slow, anguished, portentous, probably scored by Howard Shore. In a word: heavy. Bring it on.
