may forever be known as Bane to the majority of audiences, but to everyone else he's known as one of the most versatile actors working today. His newest film, Locke, has some serious talent behind it in the form of writer/director and producer . Knight may have had a misstep with in Redemption (his performance was better than the movie itself), but I'm excited to see how he'll follow it up with Locke at the Venice Film Festival this week. Here's Knight's statement about the film, which really gives an interesting take on how it will be different:
It was a joy and challenge to make Locke in an entirely different way. Shot in real time, Locke breaks new ground in movie making with Hardy holding the screen alone while the camera never blinks. The night time highway is part back drop, part art installation, as a stellar cast play the people Ivan loves and hates and who witness his extraordinary journey to despair and ultimately to redemption. A man’s life transformed in a half a tank of gas. I believe the journey of Ivan Locke is deeply moving and utterly compulsive.
