I’m presuming I’ll be able to pre-screen Triple Frontier via the restricted Netflix press site, etc. But it’s such a handsomely shot film (Roman Vasyanov‘s images are obviously to die for) that it would seem a huge shame not to catch it on a big screen in a technically first-rate, bucks-up facility. Like the Academy theatre on Wilshire.

This morning I reached out to a Netflix Triple Frontier press rep. I’d like to participate in the press junket, speak to J.C. Chandor and Mark Boal, etc. The whole shmear.

Posted on 12.9.18: “You can sense a riveting, well-textured quality in J.C. Chandor‘s Triple Frontier (Netflix, 3.6). And an atmosphere of grit and sweat and heavy tropical air. A ‘rob the drug lords’ plot may suggest the realm of an elevated programmer, but it feels like the first really exciting ride of 2019.

J.C. Chandor (All Is Lost, A Most Violent Year) is a first-rate director, and the Mark Boal script, which dates back to ’09, is tense and tightly constructed., or so I recall. Chandor has a co-writing credit. Ben Affleck, Oscar Isaac, Charlie Hunnam and Garrett Hedlund. I want to see this in a theatre. It feels formidable.”

Triple Frontier will play in select theatres for a week (starting on 3.6) before it begins streaming on 3.13.
