Most anticipated movies of the 2012 fall film festival season
'Cloud Atlas,' 'Seven Psychopaths,' 'The Master' and more
Director: Ariel Vroman
Starring: Michael Shannon, Winona Ryder, Chris Evans, James Franco, Ray Liotta
Screening at: Venice, Toronto
Why: Fingers crossed this one pops up at Telluride (as rumored), because I won't be at Venice or Toronto and there's something just fetching about the premise and principals. Michael Shannon, in particular, has been on an upward trajectory for years now. He probably came just *this* close to his first lead actor nomination last year for "Take Shelter" and here, he has a great role as real-life mob contract killer/family man Richard Kuklinski.
