  • Scott McGehee & David Siegel – The Deep End (2001)

    2001-2010David SiegelScott McGeheeThrillerUSA

    Vintage film noir gets a confidently stylish upgrade in this subtle domestic thriller, intensified by Tilda Swinton’s acclaimed performance as a mother who risks everything to protect her family. Adapted from Elisabeth Sanxay Holding’s story The Blank Wall (previously filmed as 1949’s The Reckless Moment), the film’s gripping plot commences with Margaret (Swinton), a naval officer’s wife and mother of three, disposing of the body of a sleazy club owner, who died in an accident after a confrontation with Margaret’s closeted gay son. Maternal instinct shifts into high gear when a blackmailer (Goran Visnjic) demands $50,000 to withhold incriminating evidence, and his unspoken feelings provoke an unexpectedly compassionate alliance. Compelling plot twists aside, The Deep End gains much of its impact from the quiet desperation of a family defined by its secrets and rescued by the mysterious motivations of the human heart.Read More »

  • Michael Whyte – Your Cheatin’ Heart (1990)

    Drama1981-1990BBCMichael WhyteTVUnited Kingdom


    Scottish playwright John Byrne’s follow-up to the great Tutti Frutti of 1987, was another distinctive, music-themed series. But, whereas Tutti Frutti was about rock ‘n’ roll, 1990’s Your Cheatin’ Heart revolved around the country music and rockabilly scene. The tale contains all the traditional ingredients of the archetypal Western: a defiant woman alone with her husband in gaol, a guileless stranger who finds the courage enough to help save the day, murders, and a series of down and dirty bad men. There’s just one thing…it’s set in modern day Glasgow. But don’t forget it was Celtic music played by the Scottish and Irish immigrants in the frontier towns of the new world that helped shape American country music.Read More »
