Interview: Dominic Purcell, Izaak Smith, & Damien Lee

We talk to actors Dominic Purcell and Izaak Smith and director Damien Lee about their collaboration on the boxing film A Fighting Man, and about the film’s time shifting structure, how the characters very candidly relate to Purcell and Smith’s real life struggles, and why it took Lee almost twenty years to get around to making the film.

Rufus Review

The Canadian vampire black comedy Rufus is a couple of rewrites away from something that could have been great. Instead it comes packaged with one of the sleaziest and slut-shaming love triangle subplots in recent memory that's totally unnecessary even from a plotting standpoint.

Goon Review

Calling Goon this generation's Slap Shot would be an understatement. Aside from the obvious surface comparisons to the George Roy Hill/Paul Newman classic about a minor league hockey team going nowhere, director Michael Dowse (Fubar) and co-writer/co-star Jay Baruchel have created a film that outdoes what many hail as the greatest hockey comedy ever made.
