Sew the Winter to My Skin #

Released 9/8/2018

Description: Set in South Africa's rural Great-Karoo region in the 1950's this epic existential-adventure movie chronicles the exploits of the outlaw John Kepe and the different individuals his escapades affected. This Robin-hood-esque figure would steal primarily livestock from the white settler farmers, terrorizing them for over a decade. Led by the hardliner General Botha, a mammoth manhunt ensues in the very mountain where Kepe was rumored to occupy a Noah's Ark like cave. This spectacle ingratiated Kepe in the hearts of the marginalized indigenous-population who turn Kepe's miscreant deeds into the items of legend making him a threat to the very fabric of the colonial society. Sew the Winter to my Skin is a thrilling, operatic ride into the heart of Pre-Apartheid South Africa and is a visceral exploration of the results of the colonial displacement that sewed the seeds for one of the most viciously racist, political regimes in history.

Walking Tall Reviews:

I hate wrestling, but when I saw "The Rundown" last year I had to admit, The Rock is one cool guy, and a excellent action star. He's large and tough, but most importantly he's charismatic and has a sense of humor and a certain softness that now makes him seem somewhat vulnerable. This is what sets him apart from someone like Vin Diesel, who was all set to be the next large action star but never was because he has no personality or sense of humor. "Walking Tall" is a makeover of a 1973 based-on-fact movie about a boy who wars back vs corruption in his city by becoming sheriff and waging fight on the terrible guys. I haven't seen the original, but I'm willing to bet it's closer to the truth than the 2004 "Walking Tall", which is packed with more machine guns, axes, exploding trucks, and gunfighting strippers than anything that's "based on fact" should possibly be. Here, Vaughn returns home after years of being away to search his hometown in shambles and dependent on a corrupt casino run by drug-dealing, knife-wielding thugs. After he receives a brutal beating and his nephew (Khleo Thomas, from "Holes") nearly overdoses on crystal meth purchased there, the fight is on. My inner 12 year-old tells "Woohoo!". Yes, this movie is ridiculously over the top. It's also fully predictable. But it's FUN. A lot of fun, in fact. It's extremely quick paced, well-acted, the action scenes are excellent, and at just under 80 minutes, it's exceptionally lean too. Not one unnecessary or drawn-out scene. "Walking Tall" doesn't aim to be anything except old-fashioned popcorn entertainment, and it succeeds, yet it has been made with surprising artistry as well. The cinematography is very good, and there are some interesting things done with sound and unexpected fade-outs. Also, Vaughn is an interestingly complex character (complex as far as these film go, anyway). At one point, when he clearly wants to bring a loaded shotgun into a war with him, he hesitates, and brings a less-deadly 2x4 instead. It's a neat moment. So it's not going to be winning any awards any time soon. But I had a really nice time, plain and simple, and the audience I saw it with did too.


The Rock is the next nice action hero. He has all the requisites. He is handsome, an nice athlete with an nice physique, charismatic, intelligent, and funny. His star power carries Kevin Bray's "Walking Tall".The Rock is nice in an entertaining movie. "Walking Tall" though nice fun to watch, and capably produced and directed also punctuates that The Rock needs to work on more edgy and quality projects. He is definitely a film star, who can become a solid actor. "Walking Tall" has to overcome a very convoluted writing credit. This is not a retelling of the Bufford Pussor story, although its original screen writer, Mort Bristein, is acknowledged. This "Walking Tall" by David Klass, Channing Gibson, David Levien, and Brian Koppelman says the storyline of returning Unique Forces fight character Chris Vaughn (The Rock), who comes home to a tiny city outside Seattle. The city mill has been closed down, and his old high school bud, Jay Hamilton (Neal McDonough), owns the fresh city casino and cute much owns the local police too. Jay is not the boy he remembered from his youth. Chris is forced to raise his hand reluctantly vs Hamilton's men. They leave him for dead, and fortunately Chris survives. So Chris is out to right an injustice, and exact revenge with extreme prejudice. This "Walking Tall" resembles "First Blood" particularly in it's local and plot setting. Props to Director Kevin Bray for delivering on the storyline line as Chris exacts his revenge. Bray has a clean and lean style. The action sequences are crisp and dramatic. The Rock truly excels in the war sequences. For one thing he is an large powerful guy, and when he is laying "the smack down" on the villains it is believable and thoroughly enjoyable. The terrible guys truly receive what they deserve. The helping cast is solid. Ashley Scott (almost unrecognizable from the short-lived "Birds of Prey") is nice as the stripper with a large heart who is Chris's love interest. Johnny Knoxville (of "Jackass") is funny and charming as Chris's bud and deputy Ray. I fully enjoyed "Walking Tall". It is a brisk 75 mins of cool action, and has the star power of The Rock. I look forward to seeing more films starring The Rock.


The Rock takes a page out of the Chuck Norris bible in his rendition of a unique forces soldier returning to his home town. He quickly learns things in his hometown are not as he had left them and not for the better. Soon, things come to a head and he has to create a choice as to whether he is going to place up with it, or Walk Tall.As The Rock himself mentioned- the original Sheriff Buford was a white boy in his 40's so remember this is an adaptation of a 1970's film script that was originally "based" on a real story, so we are a cute long methods out from accurately representing the original events- this is only representing the SPIRIT of the original real story.Fabulous war scenes, a tense script and some funny moments all are reminiscent of the numerous Chuck Norris films that portrayed a quiet guy that doesn't take any bull-crap from nobody man!While the script made excellent sense in an earlier time - the Viet Nam era, it doesn't quite fly 100% in this day and age. So suspend a tiny belief.You may findyourself scratching your head as to how that should happen in this day and age.. well.. it should back then - even though it didn't really haha. However, no mention is made of the current time period they are trying to represent- yet they mention actual stuff like home depot and cops TV show. The moonshine whiskey sheriff buford fought is modernized in this script to be crystal meth/ice.The acting is surprisingly nice for the Rock and he is looking manly in this film instead of the sculpted eyebrow weirdo looks he has achieved in the past. Instead of looking like a dancer in a gay club like he did in Scorpion King, he looks the rough and tumble part for this role.His attachment to his family is acted in a clumsy and low manner but that isn't really necessary to the script- even if he only sort of likes his family he would still protect them with his life so it still works for the momentum of the movie.Johnny Knoxville is mainly low but has some nice shining moments where they let him to be Johnny Knoxville instead of the stupid 1-d idea of his hero that seems to be forced on him through the another parts of the flick. At times he is reminiscent of Barney Fife to Rock's Andy. :-)If you wish to READ about the true boy that INSPIRED this really nice story- http://www.sheriffbufordpusser.com/history1.htm (the welcome page has a picture of him)
