DRAGGED ACROSS CONCRETE
BEYOND FEST! WEST COAST PREMIERE!
DRAGGED ACROSS CONCRETE, 2018, Summit Entertainment, 158 min. Dir. S. Craig Zahler. Hot on the heels of the spectacular pugilism of BRAWL IN CELL BLOCK 99, S. Craig Zahler closes out a triptych of blunt force trauma that hasnt been witnessed since the sweaty grit of Peckinpah and Schrader at their muscular peaks. Here suspended cops Ridgeman (Mel Gibson) and Lurasetti (Vince Vaughn) attempt to subvert a bank heist for private gain - but best-made plans dont transpire as they should, resulting in murder, mutilation and a script that divides, conquers and challenges from the opening shot. Zahler expertly immerses us in a toxic environment where right and wrong are indistinguishable, and Gibson and Vaughn give him all of the ammunition he needs with flawless performances as iconic antiheroes out of place and out of time - bad men doing bad things who we willfully embrace as the lesser of evils presented.
Discussion following with director S. Craig Zahler, producer Dallas Sonnier and actors Vince Vaughn and Michael Jai White.
