"Ein Kopfgeldjäger und seine Gefangene landen mit der Postkutsche in einem verschneiten Städtchen in Wyoming, wo sie ein Schneesturm in eine Hütte zwingt, in der sechs undurchsichtige Gestalten sie in ein Wortgefecht verstricken, das auf eine gewaltsame Eruption zusteuert. Was als (Schnee-)Western beginnt, erinnert in der kunstvollen Mischung aus Klaustrophobie, Paranoia und gegenseitigen Verdächtigungen immer mehr an eine Agatha-Christie-Verfilmung. Die Inszenierung betont durch ihr extremes Breitwandformat die bedrängende Enge, die detailreichen Bilder zeigen jede Pore, die Darsteller haben sichtlich Freude an ihren überzeichneten Rollen.

Things I've said, but probably shouldn't have : an unrepentant memoir by Bruce Dern( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bruce Dern has worked with practically every iconic actor and director in the last fifty years, and he's not afraid to say what he thinks about them. In this memoir, he looks back over his career, telling one memorable story after another and giving key insights into how placing artistic challenge over career development has kept one of Hollywood's greatest actors from also being one of its most rich and famous. He writes candidly about working with Alfred Hitchcock, John Frankenheimer, Claude Chabrol, Jack Nicholson, Paul Newman, Bob Dylan, Matt Damon, Charlize Theron, Jane Fonda, John Wayne, and many more. Readers will discover why he turned down potentially career-making roles, why his prestigious family disowned him, and why, after he was already famous, he agreed to star in The Incredible Two-Headed Transplant.--From publisher description
