Film Review: Rush

daniel-bruhl-a-bordo-della-ferrariFilm Review: Rush

A considerable amount of races occur in Ron Howard’s “Rush,” a biographical sports film about the famous rivalry between Formula One drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda. With so much story to tell in such little time, it is impressive what Ron Howard and his crew have managed to make of this sports fable. (more…)

Status: After being screened to some high praise, particular of Daniel Bruhl’s performance, it’s hard to see Ron Howard’s “Rush” not making it. Though critics are giving it out-of-the-park reviews, they are still all-around positive. It may be all this film needs if it has a successful box-office. Universal doesn’t have many other films in the mix this year.

Status: It wasn’t until the trailer was announced that anyone thought this film was going to even be done this year. Writer/Director Spike Jonze (who is notorious for spending long hours in an edit room) has made a film with a bizarre premise, the trailer looks like the film has a lot to say and it will now close the New York Film Festival with a push from executives who are confident in the quality of the film and its award chances.
