Hawke has recently begun appearing as a villain in movies which has his fan base confused and intrigued to say the least! In a recent Entertainment Weekly interview Hawke stated:
I was always a little apprehensive; there's a certain kind of actor that really excels in that universe, and I'm still not sure I'm one of them ... The uber-rich villain mastermind isn't interesting to me. I love the ones who believe that they're a good person and that's why they have to kill you. That I find really terrifying.
I've always had this theory that when you teach an audience how to see the demon inside you, they don't un-see it for the rest of your career. Jack Nicholson can be playing an accountant and you're still waiting for him to explode like he did in 'The Shining.' But I realized I'm on the other side of 50 and it's time to put a new tool in the tool kit. Villains might be my future.
The film had its world premiere at Fantastic Fest on September 25, 2021 where Vic Stah Milien and I both watched in complete terror as we saw out cool 90's fan favorite get very dark. I will be the first to say this movie is a full blown thriller that you will not soon forget.
Rating: 8 out of 10.
