David Michod News

Video: The Rover Isn't That Depressing, Y'all Dan Deevy talks to Guy Pearce, Robert Pattinson, and director David Michod about flies in your eyes, and how The Rover really isn't as bleak as everyone thinks.

Watch: New Featurette For ‘The Rover’ Plus New Photos & Quentin Tarantino Praises The Film One of our favorite films of the summer is David Michod’s “The Rover” starring Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson. It’s a completely stark and austere tale of a man hell bent on retrieving what is his, by any means necessary. But remember, it’s not quite post-apocalyptic. “It’s post-catastrophic economic collapse!” Michod stressed in a recent Reddit AMA. Got that?

Review: David Michod's 'The Rover' Starring Robert Pattinson & Guy Pearce Is A Bleak & Compelling Apocalypse Tale Having proven, with the terrific “Animal Kingdom,” that he could take a potentially small story of desperate men and blow it up into something much grander, David Michod attempts something like the opposite with “The Rover,” taking the epic, sweeping backdrop of a post-apocalyptic, dusty Australian desert, and turning in a tiny two-hander road movie, that is as spartan as its predecessor was operatic. It’s a mark of just what a talent the director is, then, that he can, on the evidence of this morning’s Cannes press screening, turn in such distinctive and compelling work in either register.
