Here’s a film that should be seen by all, because it’s sooo good. I found the story compelling with some fantastic acting. Below is the film synopsis.

The Infiltrator is based on a true story, Federal agent Robert “Bob” Mazur (Bryan Cranston) goes deep undercover to infiltrate Pablo Escobar’s drug trafficking scene plaguing the nation in 1986 by posing as slick, money-laundering businessman Bob Musella. Teamed with impulsive and streetwise fellow agent Emir Abreu (John Leguizamo) and rookie agent posing as his fiancé Kathy Ertz (Diane Kruger), Mazur befriends Escobar’s top lieutenant Roberto Alcaino (Benjamin Bratt). Navigating a vicious criminal network in which the slightest slip-up could cost him his life.

With so much at stake, Mazur risks it all building a case that leads to indictments of 85 drug lords and the corrupt bankers who cleaned their dirty money, along with the collapse of the Bank of Credit and Commerce International, one of the largest money-laundering banks in the world.

We got to talk to Cranston about his role in the film and I really enjoyed listening to Cranston’s stories and we had a great conversation with Bratt on his filmmaking passion.

We even talked to director Brad Furman and writer Ellen Brown Furman, who is his mom. And we also spoke to the “REAL” Robert Mazur.

The film also stars Yul Vázquez, Amy Ryan, and Joseph Gilgun.

Saray Deiseill and Entanglement: Following Her Own Path

We know Saray Deiseill from her wonderful documentary, American DREAMers, which she co-directed with writer Jenniffer Castillo. Now she has another project she believes in, a web series called Entanglement. It is about relationships, and it sounds really smart.

Saray Deiseil has worked on various scripted television comedies and dramas for about ten years, providing her with extensive knowledge and experience in all stages of production and post-production. On this project, she’s not only directing, she’s writing. The following is a synopsis of the web-series:

Set in a fast paced world where millions of helpless single Angelenos turn to online dating apps and blind date setups to find their perfect match, we meet BEN and EVIE. Both are approaching their mid-thirties, in a love crisis, and cosmically entangled.

Deiseill told us she has surrounded herself with an “incredible group of female writers for this project, such as Jasheika James and Janeika James (Revenge, Empire), Gladys Rodriguez (Sons of Anarchy, Star), Kate Sargeant Curtis (CSI: CyberNCIS: New Orleans) and her producing partner, Jenniffer Castillo (Black Sails) to name a few. Also, I want this opportunity to embrace diversity fully by casting ethnically diverse actors.” Entanglement stars Michelle Lukes (Chinese Brit) from Cinemax’s Strike Back, Johan Luis (Puerto Rican/Persian) and Valery Ortiz (Puerto Rican) from VHI’s hit The Floor.

The best part for me was spending a little time talking with Saray and her lead actress, Michelle Lukes (Evie) about making the pilot and raising the money to do it, among other subjects.

Here’s a little about Lukes: she’s best known for playing series regular Sgt. Julia Richmond in the HBO/Sky production Strike Back, Lisa Torres in the BBC drama Doctors, and her voice and image were recently used for the upcoming Halo 5: Guardians, where she plays the much-loved role of Kelly.

The big summer holiday weekend is upon us and the studios are releasing everything and the kitchen sink to draw us into the theaters. With Tarzan, the newest Purge, Election Year and a new family film, Disney’s The BFG, directed by Steven Spielberg. Which is very fitting on the celebration of Roald Dahl’s 100-year birthday.

We got to sit in and chat with director Spielberg and the stars of The BFG, Mark Rylance, Penelope Wilson, and Ruby Barnhill. And during the question and answers, Spielberg made our friend Louis Lecca of Nuke the Fridge day. So, listen in and find out what happened. They are some GREAT interviews.

Tarzan and The Purge 3 Opens!

Tarzan, The Legend of Tarzan, Margot Robbie, David Yates, Alexander Skarsgård, Samuel L. Jackson, Christoph Waltz, John Hurt, Djimon Hounsou, Jim Broadbent, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2The Legend of Tarzan
I’ve always been a fan of Tarzan movies and now we have a new one, Warner Bros’ new version of The Legend of Tarzan.

The things that this Tarzan has going for it is, Margot Robbie as Jane. She’s a Jane to champion. And the film is virtually beautiful; it makes you want to visit the Congo.

The actual storyline is weak; there are a few wholes here and there. But for me, the action made up for it.

The film, directed by David Yates (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2), stars Alexander Skarsgård, Samuel L. Jackson, Christoph Waltz, John Hurt, Djimon Hounsou, and Jim Broadbent.

The Legend of Tarzan in theaters on July 1. — A.O.

The Purge: Election Year, The Purge, Frank Grillo, Elizabeth Mitchell, Joseph Julian Soria, Mykelti Williamson, Edwin Hodge, Betty Gabriel, Liza Colon-Zayas, James DeMonacoThe Purge: Election Year
The Purge franchise is back, with “Election Year,” and this follow up is wilder than previous ones. And even though it wasn’t planned, it’s interesting since we are in a crazy election year. Plus this one has more humor than I expected…but just as scary.

It’s been two years since Leo Barnes (Frank Grillo) stopped himself from a regrettable act of revenge on Purge Night. Now serving as head of security for Senator Charlie Roan (Elizabeth Mitchell), his mission is to protect her in a run for president and survive the annual ritual that targets the poor and innocent.

Other cast members include JJ Soria, Mykelti Williamson, Edwin Hodge, Betty Gabriel, Liza Colón-Zayas, and directed by James DeMonaco.
