Marina Antunes [Celluloid 01.17.20] thriller crime



Michael Cristofer hasn't stepped behind the camera in nearly twenty years but the Pulitzer Prize-winning writer/director/playwright and actor is back with a new original work: The Night Clerk.


Tye Sheridan (Joe, Mud) stars as Bart Bromley, a socially challenged hotel clerk who witnesses a murder and ends up as the number one suspect in the case.


Along with Sheridan, the movie also stars John Leguizamo, Helen Hunt and Ana de Armas (Knives Out, Blade Runner 2049).



Cristofer is most recognized for his writing work, including the scripts for The Witches of Eatwick, The Bonfire of the Vanities and Gia which he also directed and features a very young Angelina Jolie as 70s fashion icon Gia Carangi.


I'm always a bit concerned with movies that feature central characters that suffer from social maladies as they're generally played broadly and come across badly, but I have faith in Cristofer and Sheridan who is a good performer.


We'll have a chance to see how well this turns out when The Night Clerk opens theatrically and is available on VOD February 21.




Recommended Release: Nightcrawler
