Film Review: ‘Never Here’

Film Review: ‘Never Here’
Though it drifts off into the ozone at the end, for most of its running time, “Never Here” is a low-key but effective psychological thriller which flirts with that looming issue of the social-media age: privacy, and the invasion thereof. But that theme is only a semi-developed starting point for a narrative that starts like a muted version of “The Eyes of Laura Mars” (i.e. an artist is seemingly stalked by a non-fan of her transgressive work) before gradually turning into a muted “Repulsion,” in which one suspects the real “perp” is the protagonist’s disintegrating sanity.

Starring Mireille Enos in an impressive lead turn, and notable for providing the late Sam Shepard a substantial final role, this first narrative feature for editor and Brit stage thesp turned writer-director Camille Thoman is accomplished enough to suggest it won’t be her last. However, the careful, confident handling doesn’t entirely make up for the fact that

Exclusive Never Here Clip: Mireille Enos and Creepy Suspicion

Mireille Enos, who was great in the American version of The Killing, even if the series made me want to pull my hair out, stars in Never Here. We have an exclusive clip to share with you. The film features Sam Shepard in his final appearance. Goran Visnjic, and Vincent Piazza also star; Camille Thoman wrote and directed. Here's a portion of the official synopsis: "Installation artist Miranda Fall follows, photographs and documents the lives of strangers to create her art. One night her secret lover witnesses a violent act from Miranda's apartment window. To protect his identity, Miranda poses as the primary witness, making statements to the police about a crime she did not see. She begins to create a new piece of work,...

Review: ‘Never Here’ is a Reality-Blurring Suspense Thriller

Miranda Fall (Mireille Enos) is a cataloger. Her art leads her on journeys following new subjects in order to understand who each is by what each does and possesses. She voyeuristically captures their lives in photographs and objects, exhibiting her findings as though a celebration despite some of her targets believing it more akin to a memoriam. And why shouldn’t they? Miranda is ostensibly stealing their identities for public consumption and in turn private financial compensation. She uses the mundane routines and patterns of others to provide a distraction from her own and the fame and fortune allowing her excitement and material gains they could never afford themselves. Is she therefore cataloging these strangers or merely cataloging what she needs from them to satisfy her own selfish purposes?

It’s an interesting question to ask of all artists who create in the hopes of a sustainable life. How much

Mireille Enos & Sam Shepard in First Trailer for Thriller 'Never Here'

"Happens all the time in my business... People just seep, vanish." Vertical Entertainment has debuted the first trailer for a dark thriller titled Never Here, formerly You Were Never Here; not to be confused with Lynn Ramsay's You Were Never Really Here (which is a fantastic film). From director Camille Thoman, the film is about an installation artist who follows and photographs strangers for her art, until disturbing events lead her to suspect that someone out there is watching her. Mireille Enos stars, along with the late, great Sam Shepard, plus Goran Visnjic, Vincent Piazza, Nina Arianda, Ana Nogueira. One of the quotes describes it as a "haunting Lynchian mystery" which seems quite accurate. This looks strange and confusing. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Camille Thoman's Never Here, direct from YouTube: Lines blur between real and imaginary, crime and art, the watcher and the watched in this eerie,

Laff 2017 Review Round-Up: Replace, Midnighters, Never Here, and Desolation

  • DailyDead
Back in June, the 2017 Los Angeles Film Festival took over Southern California, hosting screenings at numerous locations and featuring numerous genre films that horror and sci-fi fans should definitely keep on their radars in the coming months. Here are my thoughts on three of the movies that I had the opportunity to watch at the festival:

Replace: As far genre feature film debuts go, co-writer/director Norbert Keil has a lot to be proud of with Replace, a stunning and beautifully executed cinematic mystery that’s part body horror/part psychological thriller. Something of a hallucinatory fever dream at times, Keil has crafted an intriguing and chilling portrait of just how far some folks are willing to go in the name of vanity, and the whole affair is anchored by a trio of powerhouse performances by Rebecca Forsythe, Barbara Crampton, and Lucie Aron.

In Replace, we’re introduced to

Mireille Enos in “The Catch”: Kelsey McNeal/ABC

Vertical Entertainment has snagged the U.S. rights to the Mireille Enos thriller “Never Here,” Deadline reports. The film, which made its world premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival on June 18, will receive a theatrical release later this year and will air on Starz in 2018.

Written and directed by Camille Thoman (“The Longest Game”), “Never Here” follows Miranda (Enos), an installation artist who is engaging in an affair. When her lover sees a violent crime from Miranda’s apartment, she decides to protect him and report it to the police herself. “Miranda poses as the primary witness, making statements to the police about a crime she did not see, and she begins to create a new piece of work based on these circumstances,” Deadline writes. “It sends Miranda into a maze of doubt and fear, blurring the lines between artist and subject.”

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Starz and the ‘Never Here’ team to bring this incredibly visceral film to audiences,” Vertical co-president Rich Goldberg commented. “Camille’s distinct vision threads an especially unique story that calls for active participation from every viewer.”

Never Here” also stars Nina Arianda (“Florence Foster Jenkins”), Ana Nogueira (“Vampire Diaries”), Sam Shepard (“Bloodlines”), Goran Visnjic (“Timeless”), Vincent Piazza (“The Intervention”), and Desmin Borges (“You’re the Worst”).

Wonderbar Productions and Before the Door Pictures are producing “Never Here.” Thoman is serving as producer alongside Elizabeth Yng-Wong, Bronwyn Cornelius, Julian Cautherley, Radium Cheung, and Corey Moosa.

Enos starred as Sarah Linden in Veena Sud’s mystery series “The Killing” from 2011 to 2014. The “If I Stay” actress earned a Golden Globe nod for the role. Enos portrayed Alice Vaughan in the Shondaland romantic thriller “The Catch” for two seasons. The ABC show was cancelled earlier this year.

Mireille Enos-Starrer “Never Here” Acquired by Vertical Entertainment was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Movie Review – The Intervention (2016)

The Intervention, 2016.

Written and Directed by by Clea DuVall.

Starring Melanie Lynskey, Clea DuVall, Natasha Lyonne, Cobie Smulders, Vincent Piazza, Ben Schwartz, Jason Ritter, and Alia Shawkat.

Synopsis:

Concerned that her friends’ marriage is toxic, Annie (Melanie Lynskey) devises a plan to get the rest of their circle together to orchestrate an intervention.

Peter (Vincent Piazza) and Ruby (Cobie Smulders) are the wedded couple in question. Their circle of unmarried [but qualified] chums include Annie’s fiancée, Matt (Jason Ritter), Ruby’s sister, Jessie (Clea DuVall), and Peter’s best friend, Jack (Ben Schwartz).

That it takes so long for Annie and her recruits to find the right words to say what they’re attempting may be because of what they’re asking. Conventional interventions usually seek an outcome of healing and recovery. This one wants to skip over the “working on it” stage and head straight to divorce. A nod to
