I saw a great film this weekend. It was a crime thriller with a very modern noir feel—a bit nihilistic, and very, very dark. It has the pacing and feel of a tight novel with a steady and competent—at times very beautiful—cinematography. I loved it, and absolutely recommend it.
The title: Transsiberian. It is directed by Brad Anderson. He also directed the terrific Session 9, and the best Masters of Horror episode “Sounds Like”. It was written by Anderson and Will Conroy. It stars Woody Harrelson, Ben Kingsley, Emily Mortimer, and Kate Mara.
