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?


Specialty Box Office: Big Weekend For A24 As 'The Rover' Opens Solid and 'Obvious Child' Expands Well – Here's a rundown of the specialty box office this weekend, which saw A24 find both the best opener and best holdover with David Michod's "The Rover" and Gillian Robespierre's "Obvious Child" both having very strong weekends. Full report below: The Debuts: Debut Winner of the Weekend: "The Rover." A24 saw strong (though not spectacular) numbers from David Michod's follow-up to "Animal Kingdom," "The Rover."

‘The Rover’ Review: Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce Both Need a Shower After the Apocalypse Unlikely to win an endorsement from the Australian Tourism Board, “The Rover” presents an unrelentingly bleak view of the land Down Under in the near future. There's nary a koala bear in sight and no jocular offers to throw another shrimp on the barbie in writer-director David Michôd's downbeat road movie, set in the hot and dusty Outback 10 years after an undefined collapse.

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.

Cannes 2014 Review: WINTER SLEEP Asks The Tough Questions Nuri Bilge Ceylan trained as a photographer and has mined the expressive terrain of his native Anatolia to great effect throughout his career. As a director, he has used the landscape not simply as a backdrop, but often as an integral player in the fabric of his films. Which makes it all the more surprising that the vast majority of his latest work Winter Sleep, a film set in the primordial, truly awe inspiring region of Cappadocia, is set indoors, squarely between fours walls. Well, initially surprising anyway.
