Title: The Oxford Murders
Post by: slacky on December 28, 2006, 08:09:08 pm

I'm sorry if this already exists. I've been searching alot of pages on this board but I didn't find anything so sorry that I make a (new) one :-\ :-\

Ok here's the deal:

Dec 27, 2006 article from Hollywood reporter -
MADRID -- Elijah Wood will head the international cast of Spanish director Alex de la Iglesia's much-anticipated English-language whodunit "Oxford Murders," Spanish production house Tornasol Films said Tuesday.

Wood joins previously announced John Hurt in the film, set to start shooting Jan. 22 for nine weeks in London and Oxford, England.


Now my question is: I want to visit the set if possible, is there anyone who can help me with this?
How can I find out when and where the recordings will be?
And in case i do find Elijah there, would he be kind enough to meet me?
Thanks for your help!

well, i guess this is as good a time as any to start this thread seeing that it's now official about the film. it's been rumored for a while.

as far as where he'll be filming, he probably doesn't know yet himself. i'd say keep an eye on this thread. maybe something will show up. :)

The Oxford Murders is a thriller film adapted from an award-winning novel by the Argentinean writer Guillermo Martínez. It is a Spanish-French-British production directed by Álex de la Iglesia and starring John Hurt and Elijah Wood. Wood will play a student at Oxford University who becomes intrigued by a murder. He is taken under the wing of a Sherlock Holmes-style mentor (Hurt), who uses logic and math symbols to try to stop a series of murders. Álex de la Iglesia said: "I'm delighted to work with Elijah, who undoubtedly has the most powerful eyes in the industry and who is perfect for the part."

So what do you guys think about the concept?
I think it looks exciting, I've always loved this kind of films, you know murders and the mystery involved.

And Thank you deenan! I will sure keep an eye on this treath.
I read that he had problems with an obsessive fan on set of EII :-\
I just hope that he still wants to meet other fans, because i'm a polite and patient person, I wouldn't bother him at all.

When I heard Elijah would be starring in this, I got this book from the library and finished it a few days ago. His character narrates and his name is never mentioned in the story at all; at first I thought I'd missed it and flipped back but I'm pretty sure it's not. In the book, his character plays tennis and has an older girlfriend, so it will be interesting to see what they do with that. ;)

It will be lovely to see him in something of this sort. I'm curious though as to whether this is considered an Indie film or will get a wide US release. Anyone know?

The story was excellent by the way!

just to let you know ladies, two of my friends were actually on the set lot were EII was filmed. they spent two days there and never saw elijah once.

then again he was seen a lot in england filming GSH. you never know what you're going to find. i hope you don't go on a wild goose chase. ;)

Well that's one of my fears Deenan. I have to travel to another country and there's a chance i won't even see him.
And the only time I can go is at the start, like at the end of januari. So I don't know if he will already be there.
If only there was a way to find out..
And it's his birthday too at that time so maybe he has a day of

Feda, maybe it's best if you pm me about this and we can talk ;)

[color=Blue]I feel curious about this movie. I have seen all Alex´s previous films (he is pretty famous here in Spain), and it is going to be for sure a very original and different movie.
The way he tells the stories is usually very particular.[/color]

Post by: nuke33 on January 04, 2007, 05:14:48 pm

I just finished the book. It's very short and an easy read. I definitely liked the story, but it felt a lot like a TV movie to me. The director may have to expand upon it for it to be a full-length movie. I love John Hurt but I felt the 'professor' part would have been great for Ian McKellen.

For those of you who read the book. Who do you think would be good for the part of Elijah's girlfriend in this?

I can’t answer that simply because I don’t know most actresses especially the foreign ones. The book didn’t really describe the student’s physical appearance but judging from the women’s comments and reactions to him, I got the impression that he was Quite the flirtatious type. I could picture a sultry, athletic-looking woman (who of course couldn’t be too tall) playing the role; I actually think a blonde woman would look good next to someone of Elijah’s coloring.

I think Elijah is going to have to come up with something of an athletic physic to pull this off because the role sounds very physical to me.

And you’re right; the story was so short that the writers and director have a lot to play with so it will be interesting to see how they develop it. I also could see Ian M playing the professor, as he is good in that humorous/mentoring role.

I just finished the book and have been thinking about that as well. I think Kate Winslet would be good, she's British and a very good actress.

thanks nuke and cristiel for answering my question the other day about more on the plot. :D i've read a bit of what chuckie said about the student's physical appearance.


Quote:

do you think it would matter about his appearance, and do you think they will somehow, not so much focus, but bring that part in about him? is there some kind of struggling that goes on where he would have to show this kind of trait? we know he can pull that off looking at GSH. ;D

i did find a bit of info on the filming locations for those who want get a glimpse at him in england. ;)

Filming, directed by Alex de la Iglesia, will take place at various locations across the city, including the Sheldonian Theatre and the Radcliffe Camera, in March.

Actually no, there are no fight scenes and the student is not required to do anything more physical than walk a lot and play tennis; I just picture someone athletic-looking, maybe with some muscle tone but the character is not described that way. Elijah should do fine and they way things go, they may even change the sport for the movie.

Elijah playing tennis eh? He doesn't seem very athletic to me...but then again, I might be pleasently surprised ;)

Imdb mentions a Spanish actress called Leonor Watling who will be in the movie. They don't mention the role she's going to play but I wouldn't be surprised if she'd be Elijah's girlfriend.

Oh, and the student has a name in the movie as well, Martin.

if she'll be playing martin's girlfriend, and she's spanish, then maybe they will have elijah play the role as written in the book. that, being from argentina.

A Spanish accent?? I can't imagine him pulling one off that I wouldn't cringe at. ;) :P Some actors just can't do foreign languages or accents very well. Although his Frodo English accent was admirable (I haven't heard complaints about Frodo's accent)... will be interesting.


That is of course if he does an accent at all.

Leonor Watling is also the lead singer in a Spanish blues/soul band called Marlango. I bet she and Elijah will be talking a lot about music.

Some of these photos are large and I didn't want to reduce them, so I'm posting clickable thumbnails. Here is a photo of the catering set-up. Looks like it can be moved from one location to another pretty easily.

Enara, does Marlango have a website or MySpace where you can hear their music? Or even better, do they have CDs? I don't know if I can find them for sale in the US, but I'd like to try. I'd really like to hear Leonor Watling sing.

Yes, I saw that at Alex's blog. There is a magic show the main characters attend, but I think this photo is just a behind the scenes goofing off kind of shot. Alex isn't acting in the film as well as directing.

Cute photo! :D Here's a really big high rez version.

Love these new pictures of him. Thanks for posting Yeux. I don't think I've seen him riding a bike since I saw him in Forever Young! :)

If that is him in character on that bike then I suspect he's pleased that he can have a cigarette while he's working!

You're welcome!

There is no mention...that I recall...of his character smoking in the book, but he does ride the landlady's grandaughter's bike to get around Oxford. That's why it's a girl's model.

Maybe he asked if the character could smoke and they said, "yes." ;D

Incidentally, "The Oxford Murders" is scheduled to open in the US on December 14. This is the same day as "Day Zero" is slated to open. Looks like Elijah will be going crazy doing promotion for two films at once again.

The UK opening date is November 23 and Spain is October 26.

Firstly, Yeux, thanks again for more. I feel like it's Hooligans over again. Little pieces like a puzzle. I wish that made sense. I had a long day...

Yes, i believe he smokes in the book. It's still kind of fresh in my mind.

OK, I won't argue with that. I honestly can't remember.

I wish everyone here had a Live Journal. There is an Elijah community there where we're reading the daily blog maintained by the director. It's fascinating and he often posts photos. Reminds me of the video diary Peter Jackson did for King Kong.

Yeux, thanks for the info about the release dates. I can't believe it's happening to him AGAIN!! It's gonna be another crazy year for Elijah. I didn't think "Day Zero" would be coming out so late.

Which Elijah Community has the blog? I would love to read it.

I don't have a LJ so this will drive me crazy. I'm curious though does the director mention the actors daily and how they did or just how the day's shoot went with nothing specific about the actors?

Although it's good for fans, I think that if it were me, I wouldn't want someone writing about me in a public journal; I would like a little privacy. :-\

vahobbit -- Alex hasn't mention anything specific about film locations other than whether they're in London or Oxford. However, we can only read the parts of his blog that someone who speaks Spanish translates for us, so it's possible he does.

chuckie -- Alex has been full of praise for Elijah, both personally and for his acting ability and work ethic. He's mentioned these things quite often. He mentions the other actors/actresses, too, and is full of praise for them as well.

He talks about how tired he's getting, how stressed, not being able to work on the weekend because of the unions, losing a day's shooting when they travelled from London to Oxford, the need to buy himself some warmer clothes....lots of interesting odds and ends. But he hasn't said anything the actors would object to where privacy is concerned.

Post by: chuckie3d on February 01, 2007, 07:05:37 am

Thanks for sharing that Yeux, it's good to know his posting is not intrusive.

Also it's interesting to learn about the director's thoughts about the unions and makes me think of Pete Jackson's marathon filming for LOTR's with no union. They can be a good thing (for actors, not directors) :D

I'm assuming this movie will get a US release; do we know if a mainstream studio is affiliated with it yet?

yes, the film will be released in the U.S. on december 14th of this year, and on the same date as day zero no less. elijah will be one busy person again!

as far as a studio affiliated with the oxford murders, there are two production ones. la fabrique de films (french) and tornasol films S.A. (spain). nothing on a distributing company yet. you can do a google search on either of them. :)

Yes, as Cristiel said, it has already been filmed.

Plutonic, do you have a Live Journal? There are a couple of native Spanish speakers there who are doing excellent translations of Alex's blog. They are posted in a Live Journal community, so you'd need to have your own LJ to see the entries in the community. Believe me, it's worth it. :o

i don't bother going to alex's blog for my reason of finding out a spoiler or two, so i leave it up to the LJ'ers to translate and post what alex is saying. they do a great job of letting us know if any spoilers are included.

It's it nice when you can read Elijah reports in your native language? ;) I am spoiled because most of the reports are in English. I am so grateful that I didn't have to learn English as a second language. :-\ It is such a melting pot of words, slang and about 50 million exceptions. ;D

My sister and I are going to Mexico in the fall and decided it would be fun to be able to understand and speak Spanish while there. I had four years of Latin in college...so I am hoping that is going to help. :D

WOW! I had three years of Latin in high school and thought that was a lot. It has been a HUGE help in learning other languages. I also studied French, German and Italian. No Spanish, but if I'd known I was going to be living in NYC most of my adult life, I would have made the time to learn Spanish, too. It would have been useful in NYC.

Title: Re:The Oxford Murders
Post by: deenan on March 06, 2007, 08:05:12 am

i don't know if there is an actual set or not. this film seems to be taking place in various places in the UK.

remember, there is filming going on and they have work that needs to be done. visits from the general public is probably not a thing they need at the moment. going to a set location, or even a closed set wouldn't be a wise thing to do IMO.

but elijah has been seen out and about in the UK when not filming. so there's some hope yet. :)

Title: Re:The Oxford Murders
Post by: Enara on March 07, 2007, 01:25:13 pm

[color=Blue]Ladies, I am afraid that Latin won´t help you so much with Spanish. Latin is the root which Spanish, Italian, French... come from; but now Spanish don´t have much to do with it...

But good luck with your lessons of Spanish, I´m sure you will enjoy it.[/color]

[color=Blue]Sorry for the double post but I wanted to share this.
Yesterday, Alex de la Iglesia was on TV here in Spain. It was a short report about his new movie, The Oxford Murders. They played some scenes from it, and looked amazing.
Elijah was in all of them, great. And they pointed out the fantastic relationship between Alex and Elijah.[/color]

Enara, I mentioned at Live Journal that you are the only person I know on line who lives in Spain and that I hoped you got to see this show. You didn't happen to record it, did you? I'm hoping someone did and can put it on YouTube. I'd love to see Alex and Elijah together. I'm very glad you got to see it.

This is the last week of filming. I hope Alex continues his blog during post-production. It has been fascinating to read. I wonder how soon Elijah will come home to the US.

Yes, I mentioned you. A lot of people from A & F have Live Journals, so they know who you are. You should have one, too. It's wonderful fun. There is one person I know at LJ who speaks fluent Spanish and has helped to translate Alex's blog. Her name is Saura and I think she lives in Spain. I'm sure there are others, too, but I don't know them.

Hi girls :)
I returned in my country, Italy, I went to Oxford for to meet Elijah, the 21 and the 23 march in Oxford .
the set was fantastic, they worked in Sheldonian Theatre for all day of the 21 march, and the 22 march they worked in the pub White Horse, without Elijah because it was his free day, and he returned the 23 march for to work in the afternoon on the set in New Lane College, the set was beautiful, and him was fantastic, he is very very sweet with everybody and the set was full of fans.
I am so happy for this experience on the set with him .

Several reasons:

The Director kept a blog and posted a lot of photos.
The on-set photographer's photos have been available at his website.
Many Elijah fans in the UK got to be extras in the film and took a lot of photos.
The producers (or someone) have put more movie stills on line.

Well, DaVinci code was not the big a movie (thank GOD- it was a horrible book...), so hopefully Oxford Murders will be much much bigger.

I just read the book and it was quite entertaining about the "who dunnit"
I could not picture Elijah as the main character as he was descrbed ... But I think he will definitely do it justice. John Hurt is perfect for professor Seldon.
I'm not going to ruin it with spoilers here but suffice it to say, it's a book worth reading and it's a fast read too!

I couldn't either at first but then they changed the sport from tennis to squash and some other things which makes it easier to envision Elijah in the role. I think he'll do well.

i just saw the da vinci code yesterday (yes, i'm late) and from what i know about the oxford murders, this film has a lot of the same ideas. symbols, codes and finding a murderer.

the thing that struck me as very similar in both films was the lecture and the book signing. i haven't read either book, but i'll assume these events take place in both books?

both books were published in 2003, but they're not the first movies of this genre to be filmed. there was also "murder by numbers" that came out one year before these books were published. hmmm...

TMI? ;D

I've read both books and yes, there are lectures and book signings in both.

OT, but I loved the book The DaVinci Code and I thought the movie was pretty good, too. The movie really got slammed by critics and I could never understand why. ::)

Post by: chuckie3d on September 04, 2007, 05:42:59 am

I loved book, The DaVinci Code too and enjoyed the movie; I had trouble understanding why the critics were so hard on the movie. I loved seeing all the historical landmarks & I love Tom Hanks & Ian M.

Title: Re:The Oxford Murders
Post by: deenan on September 04, 2007, 07:16:58 am

let's just hope the critics won't be so hard with the oxford murders.

maybe they won't, because as you know, when the hype doesn't live up to some people's expectations, they want to bring it down. somehow i don't think oxford will be built up that much. maybe it'll be the film the critics wanted the da vinci code to be. ;)

Title: Re:The Oxford Murders
Post by: maryd on September 04, 2007, 12:38:39 pm

I didn't know The DaVinci Code was slammed - I enjoyed the film and the book though they're not my usual genre.

You could be right, Deenan, about the hype...maybe people were expecting so much from The DaVinci Code that it couldn't possibly live up to people's standards. I do hope the Oxford Murders won't fall into that trap...but I suppose since its not as huge a book, then it won't. :)

Without asking to be given the main plot, can someone who's read The Oxford Murders tell me if there's religion in it?

that's a great question maryd. da vinci is full of religion but i would believe oxford wouldn't have it.

I saw both months later after everyone online was talking about it..*sighs* Can you believe the only recent, so to speak, Elijah moviesI've seen that were shown at the cinema is LOTR and Happy Feet, and that's just his voice ::)

Well, Spain is apparently the only release date that's firm at this point. I'm sure it will be released in the UK because it was filmed there and the story takes place there. I suspect Spain is a natural choice because the the director is a Spanish filmmaker. I think TOM is his first film in English....at least I think so.

i checked IMDbPro and spain is the only country listed with a release date.

a little while ago, variety reported that warner bros. would be releasing it in italy along with other companies in other countries such as brazil, france, england, germany, hong kong and greece. maybe those dates have yet to be decided on.

gosh! :o i can't believe nothing has been said in the movie section all together for 10 days! all the more reason we need some good news about theatrical releases. 2 new films ready to be seen and not one word. :P

anyway, i have a sneaking suspicion we might be on the verge of seeing a trailer of the oxford murders.

alex is pitching the film and has plans to have elijah and john see the final cut soon.

just a couple of excerpts from articles picked up in the last couple days:

The title credits for Alex de la Iglesia's "The Oxford Murders" -- Elijah Wood, John Hurt, Leonor Watling -- hurtle screen-forward as calculus equations mill in a maelstrom around them. "The film's only for intellectuals," says de la Iglesia, working on the teaser.

and

De la Iglesia said he's flying briefly to New York to show the final cut of the film to the lead actors, to encourage them to participate in the Spanish promotion campaign. Regardless, the Basque director indicated that it might be difficult, since John Hurt is filming the fourth Indiana Jones installment and Wood is also immersed in other projects and did not commit.

that's too bad. hopefully in the future, they'll be able to do some promoting.

I wonder why Alex said the film is for "intellectuals." I've read the book and it's easy to follow, so I'd think the film will be, too.

Maybe he's comparing it to his previous films, which are certainly quite different from The Oxford Murders.

no rating as of yet, but with the subject matter, it'll probably be rated "R." oh, then there's that scene too. you know the one. ;)

you got that right!

i got this the other day from the joblow site (http://www.joblo.com/index.php?id=17984). sort of a preview for what we already know.

The upcoming drama/thriller THE OXFORD MURDERS should be on your radar for several reasons. First of all, it's under promising Spanish director Álex de la Iglesia. Secondly, it stars Elijah Wood, John Hurt, both of whom rock the casbah. Thirdly, it co-stars the adorable Leonor Watling (hey, the hottie quotient is very important around here). Finally, the story's pretty intriguing. Wood stars as a grad student who teams up with his professor, played by Hurt, to solve a series of murders that seem to be linked by mathematical symbols. And thanks to cool schmoe Javier, we can now check out the film first teaser trailer. It's a Spanish-language trailer but you should be able to get the gist. The film opens early next year.

Title: Re:The Oxford Murders
Post by: deenan on November 12, 2007, 08:18:59 am

a couple of new articles have sprung up about the film. they had to be translated from spanish, but this is the gist of it.

one from alex:

Will it be difficult for us to see Elijah wood in another manner than of Frodo Baggins in LOTR?

Man, this film has several scenes of sex, so it's not going to cost us forget Frodo. He does not bear as a sambenito because it is a fan of Tolkien and loves to talk about it. He is very professional, but has not lost that point of pleasure and innocence in the film.


several sex scenes? :o

and one from perhaps the author of the novel:

I thought it was an excellent movie, I was really happy. The performances are outstanding. John Hurt is a special player, and Elijah Wood as the student is impeccable. The film follows quite faithfully all the main features of the frame. Have some reasonable changes, of course. For example, rather precise mathematical discourse of the novel is supplanted by a more general speech on the issue of truth. And whereas in the novel there as a counterpoint atmospheres and tensions, the film has a more dizzying pace, as befits the film by Alex de la Iglesia. These are reasonable changes. I was very pleased with the adaptation.

here are the links to the articles if anyone wants to do another translation on them. :)

Hi girls, maybe do you know if is there a premier the 18 january to madrid for the oxford murders? because me and my friend come from italy and we would like to go to the premier for to see elijah and to see the film but we haven't news about.
maybe do you have?

thanks and big hugs for all of you ;)


Title: Re:The Oxford Murders
Post by: deenan on January 07, 2008, 08:57:06 am

i don't know about a premiere, but they usually happen before the movie comes out. if there is to be one, it would happen sometime before the 18th. so far i haven't heard any news about a premiere, though it would seem like there would be one.

check out this video clip at you tube!

That is an amazing photo, Deenan, thanks for posting it up here! A lot of the other photos I've seen make the whole film look a bit dark and brooding!

By the way, i'm sure this question has been answered but I've got a memory like a seive :) - is this release limited or general? Will it be a wide release in the UK?

Title: Re:The Oxford Murders
Post by: deenan on January 09, 2008, 12:18:36 am

so far, the countries it's going to be released in are spain on the 18th of january, france, argentina and the UK in march, and in italy in april. i'm not sure if any of these cities will be in wide release, and still no word about the U.S. :P

there are premiere pics from paris on tuesday!

Post by: deenan on January 10, 2008, 07:47:26 am

i just loaded a lot of bigger and clean pics from the premiere.

http://always.ejwsites.net/08OM-prem.html

and there is a great review of the film. i'm taking just parts of this because is does include spoilers.

"Arthur Seldom, a professor of mathematics and logic and Martin, a student who has just arrived at the university and who dreams of studying with Seldom. Soon other murders take place, all announced by quite singular symbols. Martin and the professor join together to find the parts of the puzzle. Nothing will be as it appears. The identity of the murderer will be a real surprise and its reason even more so.

There are considerable challenges that the director puts his hand up for with an infectious enthusiasm, without ever letting himself exceed the complexity of his subject. Remarkably written and directed, The Oxford Murders is a pure happiness for the nervous system.

The Oxford Murders a thriller apart, almost interactive in its way of leading the spectator to examine every last detail within the whole, in the search of a revealing clue. In such a context, it is understandable that the actors give the best of themselves, starting with Elijah Wood who finds his best role for a long time. His stimulating exchanges with John Hurt, himself more class that ever, are a true treat. Just like the film."


there is another review that wasn't as kind, because the reviewer seemed insistent on comparing alex's work to hitchcock's, and no one can be in the same league as hitchcock. ;)

if you can read spanish and don't mind spoilers, here is the link to the full review i posted.

excellent reviews,

"First of all, De la Iglesia is in top form, and his staging is majestic from start to finish. Shot in Steadicam, a camera that seems to float around the characters, and follows a natural rhythm to insinuate itself into the most intimate of scenes. The whole thing is capped off by Roque Baños' excellent score and the polished cinematography of Kiko de la Rica, who lensed The Community and Lucia and Sex. How great that De la Iglesia sets his thriller in Oxofrd and its surroundings. The locations are well-used and create a strangle rustic atmostphere plucked straight from Hot Fuzz, made up of opulent and half-empty buildings, creaky wood furniture, and well-manicured gardens."

"...the actors are excellent, especially the duo of Wood/Hurt, who engage in a most accomplished psychological love/hate battle. Leonor Watling, symbol of Good in this story, is utterly delicious as the nurse caught between the two geniuses."


and

"Alex's film is spectacular. It's got an opening to make you shake in your boots. The opening sequence, without actually being original (it could have been filmed and signed by Hitchcock) is one of those that reconciles you with cinema, and which, set in a bullfight stadium, would garner an Ole!

The film is a mystery, an attractive and light mixture of mathematics and murder on the Oxford campus, with a sinister teacher played by John Hurt, and a quick-witted scholarship student played by Elijah Wood."


thanks so much to serai for translating these and many others. :-*


it's been a good overload for the past few weeks. :) you should check out the main page for these and a lot more.

It is a very nice film with some awesome escenes. It is very dialogue based.
In my town only the doubled version was available in theaters, so I lost part of the actors perfomances but anyway, I think they made a great job, especially John Hurt and Elijah Wood.
The director used Elijah's eyes very conveniently!

this is the status of the film.

it has only been released in theaters in spain and france. coming up this week, in italy and then later this month in the UK. it did very well in spain and not too bad in france. it was listed as opening in germany in february, but i haven't heard anything about it.

there's still no word about other countries it will be opening in, but i hope that information comes soon... especially for the US. ;)

Title: Re:The Oxford Murders
Post by: Plutonic on April 28, 2008, 09:01:16 am

I saw the film on Saturday……twice!!
Now I admit that the main reason I went back a second time was to get another dose of Elijah…but it was also to clarify some of the plot details in my mind too. Honest! ;) I’m the first to admit that I’m rubbish at solving murder mysteries, but I think that this film’s emphasis on ‘talk’ not ‘action’ might be its downfall – there are some nice plot twists, but I only properly understood these the second time round, and I think your average movie-goer is going to feel a bit confused by the subtleties, especially at the climax of the film – which frankly makes it fall a bit flat. :(
It seems to be garnering some disappointing reviews in the UK, e.g.
http://entertainment.timesonline.co.uk/tol/arts_and_entertainment/film/film_reviews/article3797969.ece (http://entertainment.timesonline.co.uk/tol/arts_and_entertainment/film/film_reviews/article3797969.ece)
http://www.channel4.com/film/reviews/film.jsp?id=166114&page=2 (http://www.channel4.com/film/reviews/film.jsp?id=166114&page=2)

(The first one is about the most complimentary I could find!)

Unlike the second reviewer, I thought it was well-acted by all concerned, given that many of the characters themselves are somewhat clichéd (as they often are in murder mysteries). It’s certainly an Elijah fan’s dream because he’s in virtually every scene. Hmm…...maybe that was what was distracting me from the plot!! ;D

Title: Re:The Oxford Murders
Post by: chuckie3d on April 29, 2008, 07:00:59 am

the climax of the film – which frankly makes it fall a bit flat.


I had that feeling from the book but hoped the director might change things a bit for the movie version. The main thing about negative reviews is that it might hold prevent the movie from being picked up and shown in the US. I would love to see Elijah on the big screen this yr. ;)

Oh, I do hope bad reviews here don't stop it being screened in the US - that would be such a shame for all you US fans! :( It's always a risky business with independent films, though - 'Day Zero' got good reviews (as far as I'm aware), but it was never screened in the UK - well, certainly not at a cinema anywhere near me. ::) It's not even been released on DVD here, so I had to order a copy from Switzerland!

And its galling however when I see the other foolishness they put on the screen now; better to have Elijah on his worst day than some of the stuff they show. Geez >:(

Well, I was waiting on tenterhooks - but it's not been released in any cinemas here in Northern Ireland! Why? :P

Yes, minor rant here too.

No matter what the critics say, as long as you don't take the film too seriously, it's great!! And of course, when you get to be a part of it, it's even better ;)

Am I the only one who thinks there's something a little creepy about Martin? I mean the whole border-line stalker thing he's got for Seldom.

i didn't get the feeling martin was stalking or even borderline stalking. i believe he's highly adamant of seldom and wants to be like him if not better than him. some called it a bit of arrogance, but i saw a overly self confident person. maybe even a bit of a know-it-all.

I watched this the other day and i really didn't like it. I'm sorry but it was one of the worse films i have ever seen and i've seen alot. I wouldn't recommend it, the only good thing was Elijah but even that did not make up for how awful this film was.

None that I've heard so we're waiting for news of a US DVD release. There's an art-house cinema downtown that may eventually get it but I've given up hoping for a wide release. :(

Hi Guys:

!!!! SPOILER ALERT !!!!

To my surprise finally found the dvd The Oxford Murders at the new releases section of my DVD Express Shop. (not very express since plenty of peeps already saw it in 2008, but nevermind).

My opinion, the casting was great. Hurt, Wood, Waitling, Cox were well cast as the main characters.
The little stories woven into the story to prove a point, I liked them, it had a sort of short movie feel to it.
The actual story was missing "oompff".
The obsessive character of Martin should have been depicted differently. He supposed to be slightly the hot guy that women throws themselves at him. But he seems like he has no experience with women at all. Odd. So he is Mr. Hotness & Kool & Happy but also a total nerd and naive. Something is off.
Wood did his best to portray Martin, but in the end the movie didnt develop his character well enough.
Seldom, well, Mr. Hurt was excellent. It was a treat to just listening to him talk and walk and do his thing. But also, the movie fails to show his obsessive, controling side.
Leonor was wonderful. A mature sexy strong woman that won't take "crap" from neither older man or younger man. So i loved her exit in the story.
Juliet Cox, same thing, she played her part well. Her mother was just chilling. Wonderfull interaction in the beginning scenes.
All and all, it kept me guessing. I had to possible murderers in my head. But my guess of motive was very off. I thought maybe Cox + Seldom had a thing and wanted the inheritance, she wanting the freedom, he needing money because his books were not selling like hotcakes.
The only character that showed the real obsessiveness of a nerd was Kalman, and that they portrayed very well.
I think I would rate it from 1 to 10 a 7minus. Not a movie that would ever find a place in my collection.

PS: I have not seen all Woods movies, but I was amazed when i checked the "special featurette" with interviews where he says this is his first portraying a romantic relationship in a movie. Wow. He took his time. I hope it didnt frighten him too much and will explore more of it, hahaha. The dude remained all thru it in his jocks while the girl was stark naked.
