6 Must See Movies Of April 2014
5 Of 6 Transcendence
Opens in theaters April 18th
If cinematographer Wally Pfister knows one thing, it’s how to craft a beautiful shot. Transcendence‘s script is visually engaging movie from Christopher Nolan‘s frequent collaborator. Besides a well-crafted sci-fi film, hopefully we’ll see some big ideas and a performance we haven’t seen from Johnny Depp before, playing a man whose mind is uploaded to a computer. Funnily enough, even with that concept, this looks like the most grounded performance Depp has given in years.
6 Of 6 Locke
Opens in theaters April 25th
Tom Hardy in a car for 85 minutes. One location movies are tough to pull off, especially if that single setting is a car since it’s not the most cinematic of places. But if it’s Hardy behind the wheel, then there’s already plenty to keep your eyes on. Locke is Steven Knight‘s second movie. He’s a very good writer and is starting to prove his talent as a director. His first film, Redemption did show promise, and Locke is receiving some glowing reviews.
