True Crime Thriller FATHER OF LIES Heads To VAULT Festival

All the Money in the World review – raucous crime thriller banishes ghost of Kevin Spacey

‘The rich are different from you and me,” said F Scott Fitzgerald, to which Ernest Hemingway is famously alleged to have replied: “Yes, they have more money.” This film suggests they also have more fear of their own children – fear that they will parasitically suck away energy that should be devoted to building up riches and status; that they will fail to be worthy inheritors of it, or waste it, or cause it to be catastrophically mortgaged to their own pampered weakness. This fear is the driving force of Ridley Scott’s raucous pedal-to-the-metal thriller about the ageing and super-rich oil tycoon J Paul Getty, freely adapted by screenwriter David Scarpa from the 1995 page-turner Painfully Rich: The Outrageous Fortune and Misfortunes of the Heirs of J Paul Getty by veteran true-crime author John Pearson. It is directed by the 80-year-old Ridley Scott with

Wormwood: first trailer for new Netflix thriller

In the ‘reality is stranger than fiction’ files, no story may be more surreal and unbelievable than the CIA’s MK-ULTRA experiments. 

The American government’s effort into LSD, mind control and many other nefarious, arguably supernatural endeavors has made a good backdrop for many a science fiction story. Now, with the help of Netflix’s massive true crime industrial complex, the real story of MK-ULTRA will be in the spotlight. 

Wormwood is a six-part true crime series about the death of a CIA employee Dr. Frank Olson. The series will explore the causes of Olson’s mysterious death by blending fact and fiction and combining documentary elements with a scripted narrative, starring Peter Sarsgaard.

The first official trailer for the show gives us an idea of just what that will look like…

Well, it looks cool! Combining documentary footage with re-enactments is always a dicey proposition, but something about the bleak Fincher-esque drama at play there, combined
