I'm still really hung up on Black River. I want to say Ben Wheatley should make it into a movie, but TBH *I* want to make it into a movie.
I thought it was it's by ben Wheatley isn't it? He did Kill List as well right?
Damnit I can't wait for Ben Wheatley's movie of High Rise!
Best thing about Ben Wheatley films is how they show boring Britain and homicidal crazy are next door to each other.

Trimdon again started the game in determined mood attacking from the off with the team looking to pass and move every time they had control of the ball. The deadlock was broken when a flowing move saw Herron feed Raynor who in turn passed to Hennessey who’s cross was slotted home by Grant.

91: Deep Breath. Writer: Steven Moffat. Director: Ben Wheatley. (cast) Peter Capaldi - The Doctor. Jenna-Louise Coleman - Clara Oswald. Catrin Stewart - Jenny. Neve McIntosh - Madame Vastra. Dan Starkey - Strax. Matt Smith - The Eleventh Doctor. STORY: When a dinosaur materialises in Victorian London, the Doctor's old friends the Paternoster Gang are relieved when he arrives, seemingly to deal with the creature. However, they soon realize that the Doctor is the one in need of help; newly regenerated, extremely volatile and questioning his self-worth, this is a very different man from the one they last saw. REVIEW: I liked this story, i like Capaldi a lot, the interplay between The Doctor & Clara in the restaurant was superb. As a new Doctor story this feels reminiscent of Robot and The Christmas Invasion. an issue for me, I would have liked to see The Doctor actually choose his clothes, we have only had a new Doctor eleven times in 50 years, I enjoy seeing the way he chooses his new clothes. Som ...

Watched the first episode of UTOPIA. It's like Wes Anderson and Ben Wheatley had a baby together and then sold it to Alan Moore.
Watching Kill List. Man what an effectively creepy thriller this is. Brutal, dark and strangely emotional. Ben Wheatley is one talented MF.
Series 8 may broadcast earlier than was previously thought. Ben Wheatley suggests July.
Casting Net: Tom Hiddleston (Thor: The Dark World) is attached to star in High-Rise, an adaptation of J.G. Ballard‘s 1975 novel about a luxury residential unit. Hiddleston would play Robert Laing, a doctor who loves the idea of the tower, becomes obsessed with the architect, and gets embroiled in the complex mess surrounding the building. In the book, the building isolates the residents from the outside world and societal niceties soon devolve as residents segregate themselves by class and eventually regress to a primitive hunter/gatherer culture. Ben Wheatley (Doctor Who) is set to direct. Lost‘s Evangeline Lilly is reportedly in early talks to take on the female lead in Marvel’s Ant-Man. Edgar Wright is directing the new Marvel tentpole starring Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas as Scott Lang and Hank Pym. No specifics were available regarding Lilly’s potential role — especially since it looks like Wright’s Ant-Man will deviate from the source material — but according to Variety, she might pla ...
Steve Oram to direct his first feature Steve Oram, the co-writer and star of Ben Wheatley's Sightseers, is to direct his first feature, a comedy called Aah! The film, produced through Lincoln Film Studios. will star Julian Barratt (The Mighty Boosh), Julian Rhind-Tutt (Green Wing, Rush), Tom Meeten and Hannah Hoekstra. Producer is Andy Starke. Oram describes the world of Aah! as "barbaric but recognisable." Set in South London and with dialogue joined by animal noises, the characters express themselves in a very physical way. The off-the-wall comedy is self-financed and is scheduled to start filming April.

Just realized that Ben Wheatley is directing the first couple Peter Capaldi episodes of DOCTOR WHO. Interest elevated accordingly.
'First-day nerves' for new Doctor'. 'New Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi has admitted to first-day nerves after stepping on to the show's set today'. 'The actor, who has replaced Matt Smith as the TV Time Lord, joined co-star Jenna Coleman in Cardiff. He said: "New job, first day, slightly nervous. Just like the Doctor, I'm emerging from the Tardis into a whole other world." Viewers got their first glimpse of Capaldi at the end of the Christmas Day episode of the long-running science fiction show. Show supremo Steven Moffat said: "First the eyebrows! Then, at Christmas, the face! Coming soon, the whole Doctor. In the Cardiff studios, the Capaldi era begins." Filming on the eighth series of the show will go on until August with director Ben Wheatley coming on board. Figures released by the BBC today showed that Doctor Who was the most viewed programme on the iPlayer over the festive period, with almost two million requests to view the Christmas Day edition. The show - seen through the catch-up player 1.96 mi ...
We should expect more out of Ben Wheatley.
Ben Wheatley is going to direct two episodes of Doctor Who?!
Peter Capaldi, Steven Moffat, Ben Wheatley. . That's a *** lot of talent contributing to one episode.
I still can't believe Ben Wheatley is directing two episodes of Doctor Who. I mean he made Kill List, Sightseers and U in The ABCs of Death.
Photo: SIGHTSEERS - Dir. Ben Wheatley. One o’ the best films I saw in 2013. Check it out.
Coo! Capaldi directed by Ben Wheatley, eh? That's good news.
Here is the first picture of Peter Capaldi's twelfth Doctor, as filming begins on the first two episodes of series 34/8 of Doctor Who. The twelfth Doctor is still clothed in The eleventh Doctor's costume. His garb has not yet been revealed. The first episode is written by Steven Moffat, while the second is written by Phil Ford (The Sarah Jane Adventures, Dreamland). Both are directed by Ben Wheatley.
Yup, episode 2, directed by Ben Wheatley! And rumoured to feature the Daleks.
If Ben Wheatley is involved as director, I genuinely don't know what to expect.
Let's hope Ben Wheatley's 2 Doctor Who episodes are no where near as poor as the over-hyped Sightseers was.
Interesting that Ben Wheatley will direct the first two Doctor Who's episodes. "The Killing List" is one of my top five freak out movies.
They're filming episode one first? Oh yeah, because Ben Wheatley said so.. well.. sort-of..

Ben Wheatley is a very good director. Kill List, Down Terrace, A Field In England, and Sightseers all consistently good.
ARRRGH an Ideal film by ben Wheatley
Yeah, Ben Wheatley's definitely one of our best living directors. Kill List, Sightseers, A Field in England.
agreed. I thought the opener was a Dalek two parter by Steven Moffat and directed by Ben Wheatley. So much confusion!
true I need to see Ben Wheatley new film fields of England.

Sightseers (2012) - Ben Wheatley's gem on Film4 10.55pm. Can't wait for his version of JG Ballard's High Rise
'Sightseers' on Film 4 at 10.55 this evening: ''he wasn't a human being he was a Daily Mail reader'' (and that's why I killed him when he made a fuss about a dog turd in the Avebury stone circle) . seems a perfectly reasonable point of view to me .. a Ben Wheatley film .
Can highly recommend watching/recording Sightseers on Film4 tonight. Very funny & original. 2nd best Ben Wheatley film imo.
Ben Wheatley has been commuting to Cardiff all week so it's a safe bet...

Sightseers is on tonight, here's why you should watch it
Finally caught Ben Wheatley's SIGHTSEERS. Really dug it. It's no Kill List, but it's hilarious in a pitch black way, much like DOWN TERRACE.
Watched the British film "Sightseers", in a spirit of enthusiasm and optimism. It was good to see all the local scenery - and, yes, it was very dark, but sorry Steve Oram, Alice Lowe and Ben Wheatley, I found it lacking. The caravan road trip was humorous in places, the tainted love was credible - just: but overall not a film I would recommend. The word which springs immediately to mind is "lacking" ... and it had such potential. Did anyone else watch it? I would love to see other comments/differing opinions on this - anyone?
Ha, yes, loved it. Ben Wheatley is someone to follow for sure. His films often feature actors from 'Spaced' too, which is cool.

I dunno if my guy has sold the tickets thoughvif you can find someone to drive that wouldn't be too much £ il ask
Oh, if we could get like 4/5 of us, and chip petrol I reckon I could find someone, shall I try or not?
Finally managed to catch up and see Sightseers. Amazing film - seriously screwed up. Convinces me that Ben Wheatley is the most exciting director to come out of the UK since Danny Boyle.
Watching sightseers on lovefilm instant. Should be good. Don't think ben Wheatley has made a bad film.
Just heard there's going to be an "Ideal" film, directed by Ben Wheatley. Can't wait!
Writing Top 10 lists is something I'm a little loathe doing, because it's comparing apples against oranges against pears. But I understand the appeal: Top 10 lists make it easy for people to scan and quickly identify what they (dis)agree with. I've also approached this with great trepidation/hesitation because I think there's a good chance I've seen more movies in this past year than the last 10 combined. Another thing to note is I've deliberately tried to see movies that were: a) previewed by top critics (e.g. A.O. Scott, Manohla Dargis, Peter Howell, etc.) as being "good"; b) not part of a series (e.g. Iron Man, Scary Movie); and c) not part of a comic book/action/chick flick/Hollywood/blockbuster genre. It's just a personal preference of mine to see quirky, art house, and "different" movies, so this list reflects that.  But watch for my Oscar predictions coming soon! 10. The F Word (dir. Michael Dowse) One of the toughest hurdles to overcome for an actor is being pigeon-holed. But when the dust has s ...

Watch the trailer for the new film from Kill List director Ben Wheatley
Dear film/video students, while I cannot technically assign homework, it goes without saying that the winter break is an excellent time to catch up on your cinema. Here are 10 excellent films by excellent directors, all available on nettflicks streaming, in no particular order: 1. Kagemusha - Akira Kurusawa 2. The Sacrifice - Andrei Tarkovsky 3. Sightseers - Ben Wheatley 4. Morvern Callar - Lynn Ramsey 5. Tabloid - Erol Morris 6. Enter the Void - Gaspar Noe 7. Sonatine - Takeshi Kitano 8. Slacker - Richard Linklater 9. Upstream Color - Shane Carruth 10. Dark Horse - Todd Solondz Drop me a line if you follow through and have something to say about one of these. (Even if you hated it!) If anyone manages to watch all ten, I will take that person to a fancy restaurant. (no dessert)
Bloody *** Ben Wheatley's directing the first 2 episodes of Capaldi's Doctor Who.
Ben Wheatley is a rising young star in the British Indie Movie scene and I was quite excited about finally getting to see some of his work. Kill List was interesting enough in parts but it was way too enigmatic for me to get a firm handle on. The pocket quotes on the DVD cover invoke comparisons with The Shining and The Wicker Man but it was more Apocalypse Now by way of Lars Von Trier. British Indie Auteur Shane Meadow's revenge flick Dead Man's Shoes covers similar ground. The cast were the highlight for me.
MY MOVIES OF THE YEAR 2013 - Ok folks, here is my roundup of films that i loved in the year 2013, let me know if you agree or disagree on any and if so which films should have been in there instead!! in reverse order of favouritism!! 3. VHS 2 enjoyed the first vhs due to the short, sharp shock nature of its short videos and was looking forward to the sequel and more of the same, and it doesnt dissapoint!! All 4 of the short films are good, varying only slightly in quality, but its SAFE HAVEN that makes this film. A gut-wrenching 40 mins of documentary style footage of a bizarre asian cult this short movie is amazing and worth a watch for any fans of horror or just shock film making 2. THE CONJURING James Wan is a genius in my eyes. Up there with the Carpenters and Argentos of the world. He has revolutionised horror films and made them scary again and they dont come much scarier than this!! This is the best haunted house movie since the original The Amityville Horror and also gives an insight into the amaz ...

Just in case anyone may have forgot, episode 331 of Dread Media is available today! The episode is a spotlight on hot new British filmmaker Ben Wheatley, with a review of Kill List by Desmond and Duane, not one but two Stay Scary segments on A Field in England and Sightseers respectively, as well as a review of 5 Souls, a non-Wheatley flick about having a list of people to kill by Des, Adam and Luke!

Just watched Sightseers. Ben Wheatley can do no wrong.
Ben Wheatley: 15 years after I first saw it, my visceral reaction to Nicolas Roeg's classic thriller surprised even me
I thought that Matt Smith's exit episode from Doctor Who was fantastic, although I know that that's not exactly the consensus. However, I REALLY loved that brief glimpse of Capaldi. Between his Scottish accent, his added gravitas, and the fact that Ben Wheatley (who directed two of the most disturbing films I've seen in ages, 'Kill List' and 'A Field in England) is directing the first two episodes of Capaldi's first season, I have high hopes that we're going to see a darker, scarier Doctor Who. The show has always excelled when it embraced Horror conventions, and I look forward to the Capaldi era making me laugh and kinda freaking me out at the same time.
Ben Wheatley, Director: Kill List. Ben Wheatley is a director and writer, known for Kill List (2011), Sightseers (2012) and Down Terrace (2009).

Steven Moffat has stated at an event that Doctor Who season 38 will be shown in one continuous run for the first time since season 35 but it is expected to consist of 12 episodes instead of the usual 13. As expected Moffat will write the season opener which will the first formal story for Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi. The first two episodes will be directed by Ben Wheatley while Paul Murphy will direct episodes 3 and 6.
I'm pleased to tell you all we have a visiting speaker next Tuesday at 6pm, in the School of Film & TV Cinema. Alice Lowe is an actress who has appeared in The World's End, Hot Fuzz, and on TV in The Mighty Boosh, The IT Crowd, Black Books, Little Britain and Garth Marenghi's Darkplace. Lowe co-wrote and starred in the short film Stiffy, directed by Jacqueline Wright, which premiered at Cannes in 2005 as part of the Kodak Straight 8 competition. Her self-penned short film Sticks and Balls was screened at Cannes in 2007. She is on the Warp Films slate to direct her own first feature. She appeared in the action comedy film Hot Fuzz, and took a lead role in the 2012 film Sightseers, the third production from director (and friend of Film at Falmouth) Ben Wheatley. Sightseers was written by Alice with Steve Oram, with additional material by Amy Jump. Her talk will focus on comedy, improv, screenwriting, short film, the TV and the film industry.

Just watched Sightseers, has restored my faith in Ben Wheatley
What's the verdict on Ben Wheatley's A Field In England? My take - it's quirky, genre-defying, original, nicely shot, imaginative, very English - all those things - it just isn't very good. Ultimately I found it tedious and lacking in any substance. A panto that thinks it's Beckett. Didn't really engage on a narrative, psychological, historical, philosophical or comedy level - so what are you left with? Everybody else seems to like it, so maybe it's just me. But compared to other very English independent filmmakers like Andrew Kotting and Shane Meadows, I find Wheatley very shallow.
A Field in England is Ben Wheatley's most bizarre and surprising feature yet. And it might be his best. Read our review below. Are you planning on seeing the film in one of its many forms?

Awesome Right? Right... Don't make us kill you, you greedy ***

We're big fans of Ben Wheatley's work, as you may have gleamed over the years, so whenever he has a film in production it's invariably one we're very keen to see. His next project, the psychedelic English civil war movie A Field In England is certainly no exception, boasting a tantalising premise, a...

The Blog of a Dog - Part One THE BLOG OF A DOG INTRODUCTION British dog scoops the 'Comedy Canine' at the International Fido Awards 2012, the dog equivalent of the Oscars, held at the London Cinema Museum on 9th December 2012. The Awards are held to celebrate the cinema talents of the canine contribution to film. The jury members were a team of top film critics. 'Smurf loves to be the centre of attention and in his mind that is just what he became when he landed the role of 'Banjo', the Canine Co-Star of the Sightseers Movie - written by and starring Alice Lowe and Steve Oram, directed by Ben Wheatley. Smurf's amazing journey into the film was as a result of Kay Weston of Animal Ambassadors. Kay put Smurf forward for the part and accompanied him on the whole journey. Words cannot express how grateful we are to all of the above and the other team members behind the scenes who gave Smurf the opportunity of a lifetime. Unfazed by camera, lights, sound booms, actors and crew, Smurf's fully committed performan ...

Today, tomorrow and on Sunday I'll be at the International Film Festival Rotterdam.

I'll keep you guys posted!
